Excerpts from my Diary Part 1

If you read my blog last week, you’ll remember I was having bouts of vertigo. We planned a trip months earlier, and I feared I wouldn’t be able to make it. I got meds from the doctor and decided to go anyway.

I took notes in my journal during the trip to the north Georgia mountains. Here are bits and pieces with the added addition of photos. Continue reading “Excerpts from my Diary Part 1”

I’m learning things about the people around me as I go through this unusual experience. I’m also learning how much I can endure, and getting reminded how being out of control leaves me with very little patience.

Mom arrived on New Year’s Eve and we celebrated together. On New Year’s Day we ate my spinach lasagna. I was pleasantly surprised how good it turned out. I hadn’t made it in a long time, and I created it while not feeling well. We ate a lot, but for only three of us, there is a lot left over. The accompanying honey ham was delicious too.
