On Giving up and Giving In
Well guys, I am no longer invincible. I have had to admit that I am not strong enough for all the yard work that has accumulated. I hired a lawn service to trim the holly and I hired my sweet twins to rake all the leaves and bag them. The front yard looks great and the twins will be back Monday to do the back yard.
The twins will soon be seventeen and as of now they are engaged in getting their drivers licenses. Their dad is a doctor and their mother is an r.n. and they are determined to teach their children the value of work and saving for a goal. I expect to see these boys with new cars any day now.
I did touch up the paint on the white kitchen cabinets myself. I wish I could find a house cleaner who really cleaned but that seems to be impossible. They want to charge 80 dollars for three hours of bath room cleaning and dusting and that does not seem worthwhile to me. I need curtains taken done and washed and a lot of hard stuff.
I have a friend who retired from teaching and took up the profession of cleaning lady and said that she made a lot more money cleaning houses. That is really sad.
Oklahoma politics are beyond awful as usual. Our new Governor is an anti vaxer and a right to lifer. It is hopeless trying to get some kind of Progressive Democrat in office.
My family is flourishing. I am very proud of Adrienne who is a junior in chemical engineering at O.U. She has landed an internship with SamSung and will be going to Austen, Texas this summer for six weeks. She will be working with semi conductors.
I may have told you about this. Bobby would have been so proud.
His youngest daughter is thinking about medical school. She is
a junior in highschool.
Jose continues to delight us with his intelligence and his devotion.
I sometimes feel that I am living on borrowed time. I will be ninety my next birthday. I have lost most of my life time friends but fortunately I have made younger ones. Life is still sweet.
