It’s almost Christmas time at my sisters

It’s almost Christmas time at my sisters

Isn’t it crazy how fast November and December go? It always amazes me. It was just my birthday at the end of November and now I’m planning my trip to go to my sister which is always for Christmas. We’re leaving in a week from Sunday. This has become our families thing to do every Christmas holiday. We go to my sister in Saugerties and spend that week with her and her husband. Now it’s her husband, her and her…

Oops I did it again

Oops I did it again

Another nasty fall on Saturday morning. I took off the towel rack in my daughter’s bathroom for the second time. My contractor asked if I wanted to install a more secure bar like I have in my own bathroom and like an idiot I declined. Now I asked for the more secure bar to installed next time he is here. In the meantime I am using my own bathroom which both my wheelchair can get in and has the safety…

Happy Birthday to me

Happy Birthday to me

https://youtu.be/emapZzstxzU Another year has gone by and another number added to my years alive. I certainly am not complaining. I am actually grateful. Things were really good this year. My life was completely changed by many people, friends, family and others that barely know me contributing to my fundraiser for my van. This was at the perfect time when walking with my walker was becoming too difficult. This van gave me freedom. I was able to conserve energy that I…

Home again with ramps

Home again with ramps

I’m sitting in my van outside my mom and stepdad’s house. The home I grew up in but haven’t entered in close to a year. I became unable to navigate the deck steps to get inside. Between those steps and the leaves I can’t even imagine how slippery it is besides difficult. Today I’m here because they are installing a ramp for me through another entrance in the house. Just in time for Thanksgiving. This will be the first time…

A ramp for the balcony and a new closet floor

A ramp for the balcony and a new closet floor

I’m happy to report all the work in my condo is now complete. I had some other little projects done as well as fixing the closet. We re-touched my hallway from the scratches I’ve made with the scooter. I’ve hit into the walls many times and the walls were starting to annoy me. I had a ramp made for my balcony. I can now get out there with my scooter to clean the dog pads as well as to sit…

My handicap accessible bathroom

My handicap accessible bathroom

I had to get work done in my condo. I needed to make my bathroom handicap accessible. It is inside. I have a grab bar and a stall shower but the doorway was so small I couldn’t get my walker in let alone my wheelchair. It was on the list of things to do to make my life at home more accessible. I have two bathrooms in my condo. I usually use my daughter’s because I keep my bedroom door…

My beautiful condo

My beautiful condo

I was sitting here with my blog opened trying to decide what to write when both of my dogs jumped on my lap. This is where they usually are but sometimes my Marshmallow gazes out the window in the AM. I spent twenty minutes giving my fur babies puppy love and gazing myself out of my own window and lost any topic I wanted to write about. This is my favorite time of day. My body is tired and a…
