It's Friday Before Memorial Day

It's Friday morning of Memorial Day weekend.  This week went fast.  I am working 3am to 11:30am each day now.  Yesterday I slept quite a bit when I got home as my lack of sleep was catching up with me.

Last Monday, I took my brother David over to Coronado for a job interview.  It was lengthy and they have asked him to come back next Tuesday for another interview, this time with the owner and also the Vice-President of the company.  It looks promising but one never knows.

As David leaves the Transition House each time, he is able to "check out" his cell phone to use to call the House to acknowledge that he arrived at his destination.  He is to call in every two hours and once more when he is heading back to the House.  Monday was the first time David has ever held a cell phone in his hands and therefore the first time he ever used one!

I asked David to get permission to go out on Wednesday afternoon to the DMV to get either an ID card or his driver's license.  He actually got both - the ID card is free for those over 62 years of age, and he took the written test (and passed) for the license.  He is to go next week for the driving test, so right now he has a Driver Permit.  That was exhausting (3 hours at DMV) but exciting!

Our niece Keri had her baby this past Monday, a little boy they named Isaiah Lee Sheckler.  He weighed in a 8 lbs 15 oz, a big boy indeed.

My brother Noel had a slight stroke but is now home and doing OK.  The mild stroke did not affect his motor skills, but rather hit his mental processing.  When the stroke occurred, he became somewhat confused and could not think quickly or accurately.

We are spending this weekend getting the room set up for David and Meche, as she will be here for a week when he gets out.

That's all for now.
