it has been so long since I posted. I have been waiting for my son to "fix" my blog by being able to add comments but he said he had a problem doing it --- that's why it hasn't been done. I asked him to ask his girlfriend to do it so it might get done -- Ithink she knows more about that stuff anyway -- so hopefully before they go off to California we'll get it done. However, as I write this I see that there might be a place for comments so he might have done it and now it works. After I push the button to "publish this" I guess we'll see if a comments area comes up. If not, stay tuned!

We went white water rafting a few weeks ago. I was dreading it because it was class IV and V rapids. I've never done anything like that before (highest I've ever gone is Class III and only one or two of them) -- but the trip wasn't too bad. We never fell out of the raft and that was a good thing. The bad thing was that I hurt in places I didn't know you could hurt the next day.

Then we took a train ride through the Blue Ridge Mountain area. It was a three hour trip and went through Tennessee and Georgia. We had done our rafting in South Carolina so we got around a bit those few days!

Today Alan and I went to a Braves games despite the heat we are having -- but it wasn't too bad. After about an hour and a half we were in the shade so we survived and the Braves won.

Last weekend Alan his dad and Jennifer painted his room. Then we had new carpet put down. The house was a mess for several days and it really took its toll on me. Things were not in the right spot and I got really confused. Alan's stuff was all over the house and it was so confusing to me that I had a few pretty rocky days until it was finished. Now the house is somewhat back to normal and I am feeling better. I was close to having severe panic attacks with everything strewn all over the house.

I have lots of Alzheimer's stuff to go over with you -- but need to save it for the next post. Thanks to all of you that read this and give me your support -- it means a lot to me.
