Hubby was in the field, what was I doing?

That’s right David was in the field most of the month of November. While the hubby was away what did the wife do?

  • I went out for my birthday with a friend to red robin, they give free birthday burgers if you join their loyalty club.

I took a month off…

 

I finished editing my manuscript. Let’s face it, I was worn out. I walked, well rolled away from my keyboard. I needed time away from the pressure of writing, and editing.

These lovely ladies were well organized and thought of everything, including the presents for under the tree. There were over seventy presents under the tree when they were done.

I said No!

I like many other wheelchair users pride myself on being independent. There are a few, very few things that give me trouble on a daily basis. I can but hate to pump my own gas, I can’t reach the top shelf of the closet, I’ve never changed my own oil. 

I was out getting some food from one of my favorite places that has been ruined for me many times by either staff of other customers who were overly helpful. At first it was the staff, the once told me I wasn’t allowed to carry my own sandwich to the …

Brad Thor, I blame you for changing my life. (For the better)

  • Seriously, I blame you for two to three sleepless nights a year, yes your books are that good.
  • For getting me to start writing again
  • For me finishing my manuscript
  • For getting me on a plane for the first time in three years
    • I had a gift to deliver so my husband David takes some of the blame for this one.
  • For getting me and countless other Americans to open our eyes and take a serious look …
