Hello everyone! It feels like I have been away from this blog for a long time, and in a way, I have. My mind has not been on blogging since October of last year when Kat went into the hospital. That seems like such a long time ago, because so many things have happened since then.
Kat was able to go back to school the 2nd semester and she maintained her A average even after completing the first semester online. She was named a Person County Scholar and graduated with honors. We could not be more proud!! She plans to join the US Navy and will be going in August to get things underway. She decided to take the summer off, just like her college bound friends. She has been keeping busy going to the gym and working out 6 days a week, and spending time with her family and closest friends. She will turn 18 at the end of the month, and we just wanted her to enjoy her last summer at home.
Chefy is doing much better since his sepsis scare. He is now taking insulin to keep his blood sugars under control. I've been dealing with a bit of depression. Kat and I are very close and the thought of her leaving is very hard on me, but I know it needs to happen. I have to let her spread her wings. I'm just going to miss her...A LOT! Grandma has been having a series of mini strokes. We're all concerned about it, and since they began, her alzheimer's is worse. Mama lives with Grandma and cares for her, and it has been very hard on Mama.
We did manage to take a cruise for Kat's graduation! We took the Carnival Ecstasy from Charleston, SC to the Bahamas. I'll be filling you in on that with some very cool review posts.
Better be ready....I'm revved up and ready to blog! Until next time...God Bless You all!
