Just to avoid confusion...

on August 21, 2008 - 4:39am

Hey guys! Considering the responses I received concerning my last entry I thought I had better post this for future reference and to avoid confusion. "Carolyn" is actually the name of my regular provider and the name of the person filling in is "Shirley". Considering the circumstances, I guess there are two bright spots: Shirley lives in the neighborhood so she can do the job itself (cooking, cleaning, etc.) and also she's using the money she's getting for "filling in" to buy herself a car. That way she won't have to keep depending on her family to take her everywhere and she can run my errands. So all is not lost yet! As for Carolyn...still nothing. I suspect that Only Time will tell how this will all work out...Take care, Roger

What a Headache!

on August 18, 2008 - 1:00pm

Well, first off...I must apologize to Flipped. I went to read her blog entry and accidentally clicked the "report this" button instead of the "add a comment"! Unfortunately, it's really indicative of the way things have been going ever since I've been back from my trip. My "regular" provider took some time off to take a nursing class and Still hasn't come back. I'm just hoping that she's still in class and hasn't quit the job (or the agency) and hasn't told anyone. I've tried calling her home but No One answers so she is either out of town or she's not answering her phone. No one at the health agency has heard anything either so I'm left hanging. Plus, the person filling in for her doesn't own their own transportation so I have to take the transit bus to run my errands instead of sending them to do it. And because it's public transportation it takes forever to get home. However, they do serve the whole county so I guess it's no big surprise. Anyway, enough of this complaining! Please keep your fingers crossed and I'll keep you posted. Take care, Roger

Josh and Sweeney...

on August 9, 2008 - 9:28pm

Has anyone been watching The Greatest American Dog? Not only is the show really cute but every time I watch it I can't help but think of Josh and Sweeney! In fact, I wonder if they're watching it? This leads me to wonder...Has Sweeney ever appeared in Dog Fancy or Dog World Magazine? If anyone deserves to he does! To change the subject (just a little)...How about some Josh trivia? What does Josh and the movie "Enchanted" have in common? Aside from his being Prince Charming (of course! LOL!). The answer: Idina Menzel. She performed with Josh in Chess and Patrick Dempsey in Enchanted. Or how about this one? What does Josh and N SYNC have in common? Answer: singer/songwriter Richard Marx (anyone remember him?). Not only did he help write To Where You Are but also N Sync's ballad This I Promise You. No "cattiness" please...I still love N Sync! LOL!! Anyway, next to Josh and Ms. Streisand (as I call her) Richard is in my top five favorite performers. Not only does he have a beautiful voice but he's a fantastic songwriter. Take care and Have a great night! Roger

Soundstage on PBS

on July 19, 2008 - 11:23pm

Well, I just watched the "mini" version of Awake Live on PBS and you know...every time I see Josh on a talk show or see him perform it just reminds me one more time why i care for him so much. And because of that it both lifts me up and breaks my heart. It lifts me up because after a lifetime of searching I've finally found someone (and something) to give my life meaning and to make it all seem worthwhile. But it also breaks my heart because it brings up the fact that i'm 44-years old and never been in a relationship. Truly...I've essentially resigned myself to the idea that it's just not going to happen. After all, it's no secret that people are not knocking down the door to date people with disabilities. It really puts you in a position of focusing your attention on everything else so you won't keep thinking about it. Anyway, I Thank God for bringing Josh into my life because without the both of them i would need to seek professional help! No joke intended...Anyway, Take care and have a good night!

What A Week! Part 1

on July 17, 2008 - 8:04pm

What a week this has been! But first things first...Has anyone checked out Josh's first entry to his blog? (Of course) I couldn't see the picture/video he posted but get this...his grandma has WebTV too!!! Not only does that surprise me but the fact that he knows what WebTV is really shocks me! When I tell people I have WebTV they just stare at me with blank faces. Who know that we would have THIS in common? LOL!!! BTW, for those that are wondering...WebTV is very temperamental. It only downloads what it wants so sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
