Another Year Upon Us!

2014 started not quite the way I expected, but when does life go as planned?

Weather’s been crazy this winter and the wind never seems to stop!

Missing Rudy and not feeling well do not mix either. But as my motto says “Life Goes On . . . One Day at a Time!”

Feeling alone, sad, sick, stressed . . . . . this is my life!

Missing Rudy!

We placed items at his marker to honor his memory.

Rudy loved golf and was a Scrooge at Christmas.

In Memory of Rudy, I made this for him and placed it at his grave yesterday, It’s so hard to believe it’s been 2 years already. Where does time go? I have no clue. Miss him every day and there’s always some thing I need him for. So hard living with your husband for 40+ years and then all of a sudden he’s gone.

Another year is ending!

Where do the days, weeks and months go? I have no clue.

We’re almost at 2 years without Rudy and I miss him so very much. Life is so different without him that’s for sure! Our family unit has gotten smaller and extended family is very distant.

I’ve decided I needed to finally get out of the house a little, so I’m volunteering at Kadlec Medical Center, Richland,WA in the Cancer Resource Center. Helps me feel good to be able to help others traveling on a cancer journey. I mainly do the office work and have made some new friends. It’s really different for me being outside for home.

Holidays are hard for me, even though Rudy was our family’s Scrooge. Miss him wearing his “Bah Humbug” hat each year, so I hang his stocking with his hat over the peg also.

He used to build things in his shop for me and had many plans of doing more when he retired, but that never got to happen.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!

February 2013

It’s a tough month for me. Rudy’s birthday was 13th and Valentines the 14th. Used to be the month was full of birthday parties, all we have left is the memories.

Seems like there are not enough hours in the day to get much done, hardly ever get any crafting done. I need to make a schedule and have a craft day each week for me. 

I do help the ladies at my Mom’s apartments do some crafting, mainly decorations / cards for the different holidays.

Hoping to get them scrapping soon!

Where does time go?

Here it’s late October already and I have no clue where the days, weeks or months go. Time flies right past me.
Missing Rudy, at the same time trying to find myself. This is not what we had planned for this time in our life.
Life can be cut short and there’s nothing you can do to stop it.
Live each day to the fullest and make lasting memories to leave behind.
Some days it feels like this is just a dream and I will wake up and Rudy will still be here with me.

March and Spring!

Time flies by so quickly these days! I hope winter weather is over and spring is upon us. Would like to get out of the house and into fresh air, that is if the wind/dust storms stop!

Have alot of winter clean-up in the yard to do, it’s going to take me forever!

Viet Nam Veterans and Agent Orange

I promised Rudy I’d continue fighting for GBM-4 to be accepted by the VA as being caused by Agent Orange from when he served in Viet Nam  in 70/71.

I’m trying to work on this at least one day a week. Weekly I find more names to put on the list of Nam Vets that have been diagnosed with GBM-4 Brain Cancer.
