Day: September 20, 2015
As Daddy grew weaker with his Pancreatic Cancer, he had to let go of so many things that he loved. He sold his four wheeler, and that was difficult for him. He shuffled past his Harley every day, wishing he could ride but knew he was too weak. But even more difficult for him that that, was seeing his beloved motorhome that he wasn’t able to take out on the road. He REALLY loved it, and took such amazing care of it. His dream was to retire, get rid of everything and hit the road with Mommy. Knowing that his motorhome was the one worldly item that really saddened him to part with, it has been difficult for us to part with it too. The time has come though, for us to get serious about selling it.
1997 Gas powered Fleetwood Bounder with a 460 Ford engine. He installed a Winegard for $1400 which searches for satellite for the TV. It only has about 32 000 miles on it and he needs $15 000 for it.
It sleeps 6 comfortable in beds. One Queen size bed, one Couch that folds into a queen and a table area that folds down into a bed. The fridge and freezer are nice and big and there’s a microwave, stove and oven. The slide out add a ton of room. Two huge air conditioning units.
It truly is in immaculate condition. If you know of anyone who may be interested in it, please contact me.
This morning my Mom and the girls left for my nieces baby shower, and Jan and I stayed here in Firth. Friends of ours from Utah came to visit, and came bearing gifts in the form of donuts! Kylie owns a donut shop in Utah and Jan has been telling about how amazing they are, especially the maple bacon flavor and s’mores flavor.
He was right, they were sinfully delicious!! Her shop is named Beyond Glaze, and is in Sugarhouse, Utah. (2121 South
They do birthdays and weddings and all sorts of everything. next time you’re in the area, treat yourself!!
We went over to Daddy’s grave to see his tombstone which was delivered yesterday. It was hard for me to see it because I think subconsciously I still expect him to walk through the door at some point, but seeing our last name with his name on the tombstone, made it all painfully final for me. Bernadine, Jan and my names are on the back of it.
After they left, Jan and I sorted and organized everything that we took out of his truck yesterday. We decided that he has a sock fetish. In fact, I think all the socks that have disappeared from peoples dryers, have ended up in his semi.
This evening Mycah and I went for a drive to practice her driving skills.
She is doing beautifully. I sat back and enjoyed the gorgeous scenery.
At one point today Mycah texted me when she was in Idaho Falls. She has been craving Thai food for about 4 months now, and sent this:
She decided to look up pictures of Thai food on the internet to try suppress her craving, but it just fueled the fire. Danny went to Thai food in Jeddah yesterday and sent her photos to torment her more. I’ll think I’ll start a food drive…Thai food for Mycah!
Jan has done well today. I’ve had to dose him up well with hydrocodone due to pressure and pain in his head, but he still feels clear in his head, allowing him to think and communicate well. His shakiness and weakness still bothers him, but overall he is doing beautifully. He has decided that his major bucket list item he hopes to accomplish, is to ride the same ride our Dad took to the Florida Keys, and back on his Harley. He rode about 8000 miles in 16 days. As soon as Jan feels up to it, he will ride my Dad’s Harley and I will ride mine and Danny’s, and we will begin our journey. Jan really wants Danny to join us for it too (so do I), so hopefully he will come home soon so we can do that.
I had the special treat of being with our beautiful daughter, Aundrea, while she got ready for Homecoming Dance this evening. Even though it was just over Facetime, it was so awesome.
She is so beautiful and such a sweet little Angel. She is going to break a lot of hearts at the dance tonight. I love her so much.
I am so grateful for another day of life with my sweet brother. I am grateful for his humor, his goodness and his love. I am the luckiest girl in the world to have such an incredible brother who loves me and teaches me so much.
