Saturday barbecue

The barbecue on Saturday was a lot of fun. We played a game of trivia television on the living room TV screen and it was a lot of fun. I really need to do this more often.

Tomorrow we are going to see Monster in Law and take Brodie to the park, we are trying to do this every day and she loves it.

Another Weekend

 Yesterday we went to see Madagascar. It was good but not as good as I thought it would be, we should have seen Monster in Law.

Today I'm having a barbecue and I cannot wait. I got some steaks, hamburgers and hot dogs and I'm sure it's going to be a lot of fun.

Nothing really

last weekend was kind of a relaxing weekend. I was trying to figure out how TiVo works and it is really awesome. I don't believe that I will ever comprehend how it works but it sure is cool.

Monday I went back over to Circuit City to talk to Gilbert, the guy that sold me my television. He told me that he would come over and program the television so I can use it with Multimedia Max. It doesn't look like it's very hard to do but I cannot do it by myself. While I was there I decided to get surround sound for my bedroom also, this is where I spend most of my time and I think he will make it sound all that much better.

Today I went to Gilroy, I had an appointment at Transitions to get some work done on my wheelchair. They readjusted my laderals, fixed my drive control and replace the seat cushion. Then they came back and had an appointment with Tony to get my SP tube changed.

My new television and he

Since my brother was here last Tuesday he went with me to Circuit City to pick out a new television for me, the sound was going out in my old television, it's about four years old. I wanted to get surround sound but they told me that with these new televisions I really wouldn't need it so that was good news.

Today was a terrific day. The guys got here early in the morning to install my new TV in my bedroom. It is a 32" Polaroid that I can also use as a monitor, it really looks great. It didn't take them very long and they were very knowledgeable and patient when explaining how to use everything. They also installed a universal remote for my living room so I can actually turn on and watch my TV in there, the universal remote replaced about 10 remote and I can watch the VCR for the DVD with a push of one button. I had a houseful of people which really isn't new around here. Besides the two guys that came to install the television, Pete, the guy that is doing the maintenance on my house, Jerry, my neighbor from next-door and George and Juliet were all here to check everything out.

Stanley and Corinne's visit

Last night Stanley and Corinne came to spend the night. Stanley had his first follow-up visit for his eye surgery and everything looks good.

The other day when I went to East Ridge Mall I noticed that they were putting up some circus like tents in the parking lot. We went by to find out what time and day the circus was going to be and it's going to be today and tomorrow so we got tickets for today. I didn't bring Brodie because I figured there would be animals there and she's starting to act really aggressive around other animals but there were only ponies and she would have been okay. Even though there was no animals it was really exciting and they put on a great show.

Stanley cooked us dinner, a roast with all the trimmings, it was very good.

Mothers Day

Today is a pretty mellow day, I stayed in bed because Lulu took the day off as it is her birthday. It is beautiful outside and I have the French doors open so I can see outside as well as the sun coming in from my new skylight.

Last Tuesday Dave came down. It wasn't a very long visit but it sure was nice. He called on Sunday to which my mom happy Mother's Day and said he would like to come on Tuesday to take her to lunch. While he was here we went to Circuit City to order a TV for my room because mine is going out. He helped me pick out a flatscreen TV to hang on the wall and they will be here on Tuesday to install it, I cannot wait to start watching it.

Last Monday my mom and I watched the beginning of a movie about Elvis Presley and we watched the end of it last night, is going to be another special on Friday from the Presley's point of view... I hate when they stretch it out like this.

David visiting

This was a pretty casual weekend. I did a lot of staying at home and watching movies or sitting on the porch visiting with neighbors.

My morning attendant that was supposed to come today called in sick so I was just going to cancel service for today but they said that Mimi had agreed to come. I was really excited because I have not seen Mimi for about two or three years. When I had my tendon transfer surgery I had my arms in casts simultaneously and Mimi was here for about 12 hours a day helping me with everything. After my surgery I only needed for hours and she needed more. She looked really great and we did a lot of catching up. We are going to get together and hang out or have lunch.

My brother David called from Georgia and my mom happened to be here so the whole family wished her a Happy Mother's Day and David said that he would like to fly down here tomorrow evening, take my mom to lunch on Tuesday, and fly back Tuesday night. I don't know who was more excited, my mom or me.

Not much going on

I haven't written in here for a while and nothing much is really happening. Yesterday I went to visit Floyd at care Meridian. He said that he hadn't had any barbecued ribs for very long time so we stopped on the way and that's what we had. It is so beautiful there I love visiting.

Lula took today off for Cinco de Mayo so I just stayed in bed and watched a couple of movies. Haven't been sleeping very well at night and I can't stay awake during the day, I need to get my schedule turned around.

I was supposed to meet Kevin tomorrow for lunch but he's really busy trying to get his new home squared away some are going to try it again next week.
