Derek is here!

Aleck and Catrina and Jeremy were here last night and we had a great time. The dinner turned out good and they left with exact directions on how to make it. She is not a cook but she can do this one, very easy and good for her as she is pregnant with baby #2!! Lil Aleck was so fun and he is very mobile now, crawling and walking everywhere. It was fun to see them and get to visit a little.

Derek got here this am just after Catrina and family left. He has a plan for his time here and hopefully we can get him enrolled in a drug treatment facility or an outpatient facility. He has a good attitude and hopefully is really serious about getting better. We are looking on line for AA meetings, he has to attend 5 a week if he stays here with us. Those were the Dr's orders when he left the Mental Health Unit and a very good plan for him.

We have Aleck's 1st birthday party to attend in Northern KY on Sunday and a Valentines Day hike for couples tomorrow night so it will be a very busy weekend. But with Derek here we will have some help with cooking and chores anyway. One thing he is not is lazy and he is an excellent cook.

Keep us all in your prayers friends!

  2. I'm glad to hear your visit with Aleck and family went well. Sounds like you all had a fun time. It's nice that Derek is there with you. I'm sure you can be a great help to him with him that close. Have fun this weekend. You will all be in my prayers. Hugs.

  3. I couldn't get the comment area to open for me yesterday to say how lovely the sparkling clean bedroom looks! Good job! Enjoy your company! Hugs!

  4. hmmm...Chef Derek! You've got some possibilities there! :]

    But seriously, I hope your able to find a good AA for him to be in. :]
