I’M GOING… to work on the shed and some paperwork.

I AM WONDERING…is wrong with a specific situation that seems hopeless AND when we’ll wrap up this VA mess – seems like we’re always starting over.

Something fun to share::: My new Doxie scanner.  I’ve been able to take 3 banker’s boxes full of recipes and scan them into my computer, pictures and all and throw away the paper and eliminate the boxes and I’m finally finding my creative gene again!

MY READING LIST… Sheltering Hearts b Robyn Carr

I’M HOPING & PRAYING… that hope springs eternal for real and some issues comes to an end soon.

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO… our family reunion next month.

I’M LEARNING… how to be patient, but also how to squeak the wheel for oil WHEN NECESSARY!

AROUND THE HOUSE… a few projects to be finished while it is still cool enough to work outside.

I’M PRAYING… I’m also praying for a unyielding family member who needs to get a clue to real life.

    I can’t believe you’re still having to deal with the VA, my word, it’s been forever now, wish they would get their act together.

      Filed May 2007. Comp and Pens exam was in December 2007. Doctor was a rotating, visiting doctor who didn’t even perform the correct exam and we CANNOT get anyone to give him a new exam. They are forcing us to go through the “APPEAL” first! What a crock. The doctor at Loma Linda found the thoracic fractures and spinal stenosis and we can’t even get a new exam with their own doctors declaring it! So much for almost 40 years in the military, albeit a lot of it National Guard in the middle – he still served for 42 years beginning and ending with active duty Army!!!! I want to fix this for him so bad.
