Ludy Melvin Massie

My Grandpa passed away this afternoon. It's a lot of loss for one month. I'm not really sure sure what to say. Just when I think I can't cry any more I discover that I can. Last week when I visited him at the nursing home he kissed my hand and hugged me. He was always quietly smiling and so comforting to those around him. Love you Grandpa.

The Job

Today was the first day of the rest of my life... It was great! I met a lot of people and remembering all the names is going to be a challenge. It was relaxing and actually fun. It's nice to be smiling while you work! The highlights included: going to the Diabetes Center for an inservice on carb counting (lunch was provided!!! I had 4 servings of carbs) and spending the last part of my day playing on treadmills and elipticals. Yes they pay me to do this! I picked Sid up from the sitters and was home before 4pm. I'm a little nervous about having to work 5 days in a row but they aren't "hard" days so I'm hoping it's going to be okay. So far I'm loving it!

Meda Rose Massie

My grandma passed away today at 8:00pm. She had a heart attack yesterday and was on life support. After discussing what was best for her with her Doctor we decided to take her off of the ventilator and she passed away in the presence of her family and heavenly Father. She was a beautiful lady and will be greatly missed. Her funeral will be this Friday, May 23rd in Cedar Park, TX.

Play Date

Our sweet friends Sara and Logan came over this morning to visit. Here are Sid and Logan sharing the Elmo chair and watching Dora.
I can't believe Logan is only 1! Such a big guy!
Sid cooked some "chocolate" for us. Yummy mud pies fresh from the yard. Mmmmm!
We were all set for the perfect pic and then the sprinklers came on! Logan took it in stride though. Totally chill little guy.

And The Winner is........

I got the job in Cardiac Rehab!!!! I found out today and I'm super excited to be joining the department. I almost feel like it's too good to be true. I keep having to tell myself, "You deserve good things to happen to you! You are worth this!" My stress level is going to be cut in half and I'll now be home by 4:30 at the latest- instead of 9pm. It occured to me after I accepted the job that I'm going to have to start planning meals. I only cook at most 2 times a week so this is going to be the most drastic change for us. And as a huge bonus I'll get to spend 5 more hours a week with Sidney! Yes I actually counted how many hours with nap times factored in... So now I just have to work out when I can leave 4Central with my manager and then it's off to nursing paradise! Woohooooo!
