We got back from Colorado, and doing our best to get back into our normal way of life. Of course that implies we have a normal way of life, and for the most part, that's true. Its just that our normal probably isn't the same as your normal. Jason had some specific things he's wanted to do around the house, particularly with his chickens, and then on top of that the filter system on his fish tank has decided to stop working. The dogs both needed to get to the groomer, and the house, itself needed some attention (Linda and I are constantly cleaning up after the animals, yet we just can't seem to keep everything as clean sas we'd like it). Then there is the garden...

The garden is doing great, despite the water problems. We have an irrigation system and it has failed twice. Fortunately, the failures have been caught, and the plants were without water for only a day or two, and nothing died. Some of the produce was impacted, but only some. We were able to harvest a bun…

Well, I'm finally back to the blogger, and can make another update. I have been trying to get back to this point for about 3-weeks now. A number of requests came in, asking that I make some updates and changes to the appearance of the blog, and I thought it was probably a good idea. Afterall I've been blogging for over 6 years with this now, and a change was due. Problem is, I wasn't ready for the change, and I didn't understand exactly what I was doing. When I finished making the updates I exited and when I attempted to get back into it, I couldn't figure it out. Previously I was able to just get on to my blog and I knew what to do. with the new environment I was effectively locked out. Well, enough of that, I'm back in and now I know what to do.

Okay, we went to Colorado, back on July 9, and remained there for 9 days. The folks at Aspen Seating had been contracted by the VA to create a new prosthetic for Jason. This was very exciting for us, as Jason had been…

I said I would be posting on Thursday, and I also said I'd get some new pics posted. Well, I'm posting that I need to continue to get better organized, so that I can get the pictures updated. We've been dealing with a bunch of different things, with the most important, right now, being the trip to Colorado. We'll be heading out that way on this Sunday, and will probably be there for 8 days (maybe a little longer).

Jason is doing well, and spending more time in bed than he cares for, so the healing has been happening somewhat. The new prosthetic from Aspen/Ride Design - in Colorado, is going to be very helpful once he has it. There are still multiple challenges, and we're dealing with them as they come along, AND we're all managing to stay positive. The girls are concerned that the Summer is going to fast, but then again I can remember having those same concerns when I was back in school (LOL).

Thank you, for your patience with me getting this updated and "…
