As I mentioned in my previous post, I didn’t receive my new computer until August so I was unable to post. This is my summary article for July.
I made a quick trip home at the end of July to spend a few nights home with my parents. Normally (as you would see in previous years of July posts) I would have a good dose of Salmon fishing photos to show you. This year I just could not bring myself to go out in boat.
Since the tragic loss of Joey and Marc, I don’t look at the ocean view from my hometown with the same love and respect. Joey never came home. Somewhere out there my dear cousin is missing, and I think a little piece of our hearts will never heal because of that.
I could say more, but it brings such a heaviness on my heart. I’ll leave you with some photos from my July.
I’ve recently had a scary incident with hypertension. After a 10-hour hospital visit, my doctor put me on two types of blood pressure medication to get my symptoms under control. It was a really scary day. Scary enough that I’ve replaced bacon with cheerios, and all beverages with water.
(I mean there are more changes, just trying to interject some humor)
I took 4 days off of work and went to St. Lewis to see my family. I was really in need of some downtime. I could joke and say that visiting my family didn’t help much with the blood pressure… lol… because it didn’t… but truly, it was nice to be with mom and dad for a while. I live within a 6-hour drive of them, pending road conditions, but it seems like I never get to see them.
