long time no see! lol Well I have seen some of you over on facebook. It has just been so busy between work, Spendng time with the family and puttering around the house. I just don't know where all the time goes. I've meant to come in and see you all so many times, I think about you guys almost every day. Hope all is well with all of you.
Stan is doing much better. He still has issues with his COPD, and diabetes of course but he had to have surgery on his foot for plantar fascititis and now that that has healed his feet are SO much better. Still has problems with the diabetic nueropathy in his feet but they are so much better than they were. He still working at my work as a breakfast cook at the assisted living facility.
Got some news about Nickie. He got remarried and he and his new wife Sonya live across the street from us! She seems really nice and Nickie is very happy and that's what matters. Of course it was bittersweet him getting married again but life goes on and we can't expect him to be alone for the rest of his life. He's a wonderful man and someday he'll make a great father.
Chelsea is getting ready for another school year. She got her professional teaching license this summer! She did have an alternative teaching license for secondary English. If you remember the last time we talked she had just become a foster mom. Well it will be a year the end of August and she still has him! We can't give any details of course but we are now able to refer to him as her son EJ on social media. He started calling her mom within a few weeks and she is for all intents and purposes his mom now. By Christmas Stan and I were Grandma and Grandpa. He and I had a rough start, he bonded with Chelsea pretty quick and she and I are close so there was a little jealousy on his part. I just stayed myself, didn't push him but included him in things and little by little he thawed and now we are very close. Its like he was always a member of our family and our grandson all along. This school year is going to be interesting though because he's going into 6th grade and his mom (Chelsea) is going to be his English teacher. lol
I'm doing well, still working and loving being a grandma.
I'll be back, hopefully it'll be sooner next time!
Welcome back again, girl!! Always good to hear from you. Yes, I see you on FB, but it seems that people are more distant there. Here we are not. So glad that Nickie found love again. That is a gift, from God, when one can find love more than once, in their lives. Don't ever think that he has forgotten his Katie, because he never will forget his first love.
Happy that Stan has recovered from his surgery! And back to work too!
You are an awesome grandma! But, how can you help it, when the children are so enjoyable!
Sounds like Chelsea is doing well, for herself. I'm so happy for her!
