bye bye bel aire...

Julia....i loved julia, she was my very very favorite, she was so lively and happy all the time, and wanted so bad just for all of us to see her as a friend and not someone we took care of. She thought i was a "dizzy blonde" so every day when i would go in to help her get ready for the day she would teach me a new word...Cause she said she knows how it is to be a dizzy blonde haha...We were going to take her to the movies cause she always wanted to see the latest things out, but the day we were going to take her, she got sick. She kept asking us to take her as soon as she could get the strength up to walk again, but she never did. Julia passed away just a few weeks later, very unexpected, she just became weak, and soon died, all her kids were there for the last two days, they camped out on matteresses and couches in her room till she went, thats what she wanted...She will be truely misssed.

this is Ken, and my puppy willy, willy loved coming and visiting on the holidays, i think this was either christmas or thanksgiving

This is Dorothy, on Christmas, all of the workers got to get as many residents as they wanted gifts, and i chose her and one other lady, the other lady passed away just a few days before christmas so i didnt get the chance to give her hers, but dorothy LOVED hers, thats right, i bought her a stylin hot pink velour outfit... Despite that lovely face she is making, she really loved it!

Alright, so i realize, and formally apologize for not "blogging" for the longest time in history... That being said, im gonna try and be like my brother and just put some quickies from whats gone on since my las blog so that you guys can catch up!
this is Imo, our movie buddy, Me and my friend/co worker Sam would take her to the movies all the time, she loved it....she is one funny lady!

So i quit my job a few weeks ago, and yesterday was my last day. So now i have some time to do this! I really Really loved working there, but i just couldn't live much longer without the insurance that they promised me after 90 days of working there, and wouldnt give me when that 90 days rolled around!! Which was way way back in november, and i felt like an idiot staying as long as i did without getting it, but i just loved the residents i worked with too too much to let them go! It was so hard to leave yesterday, i tried not to tell any of them i was leaving, because my friend quit just the week before and when the residents found out about that there was crying all over! And i didnt want to have to deal with that, it would make me too sad. So the last day comes around and all the residents hear the gossip going around, and sure enough the water works starts....DANG! i hate seeing people cry, but old people...thats even worse! I am really really going to miss it there, and i will have to come back and visit them some time!

here are just a few pics i took over the time i worked there, of my lovely cute little residents (this isnt all of them, just a few, i wish i got them all. But i love every one of these ol folks as if they were my own grandparents! they are the sweetest people in the world!

Ahh Phyllis... She loves attention, so when she fell the other day, we were not suprised to see that she was infact excited about the BEAUTIFUL black eyes and goose egg, because she was getting so much attention for it she could hardly handle it, she thinks it looks like she is wearing a butterfly mask....and yes, she is completly there in the head. haha oh Phyllis
Elverda is probably one of my favorites, and i was one of hers, her family doesnt care much to buy her anything but her rent, which comes from her own pocket anyways, and they use her demencia to their advantage, everything you see in this picture, including her clothes is all donated from us at work. But on a happier note...Elverda will always give you the most interesting and hilarious stories ever....Like for instance, she thinks Bill Clinton is after her because she is the one and only woman in the ENTIRE world who refuses to sleep with him, making him want her even more! haha

oh Charlie...Poor Charlie had a bad bad case of lost it, and his wife, who didnt live there, needed charlie didnt die, he ran away too many times, and tried to "have his way" with a few ladies too many times. His wife didnt like that she found some underwear he stole from one lady's room, in his drawer...Ha THAT was a fun dayLast but not least, our little farm boy, Glen. Thats right his shirt does say pull up a seat and grab a teat...every single one of his shirts said something like that, my favorite was one with a huge fish on the back and it said "quit staring at my bass" haha....and that basically sums up his personality...he was the hardest one to see cry when i left, cause he is such a tough guy...ya that was hard.
oh....and, i almost forgot, since im making blogs and all i might as well let the cat out of the PrEgNaNt!! Yippeee! Suprise! sorry i didnt take a pic of the test so i couldnt make a cutesy announcement like my creative and cute little big sister kori! Thats all!....oh my GOSH that was the hardest secret to keep EVER!!
