I have been working on a photo album with pictures from my sister's wedding using software from Creative Memories. I'm also going to make a traditional scrapbook for her, but I think I'm going to keep the storybook for Mom and me. It depends on how it turns out. It's really fun to work on though.

We have had one episode of diarrhea, this morning. Mom must have had an episode this morning before I got up because I needed to change the bed linens this morning. She really gets distressed about the accidents and I try to do everything I can to make her feel OK about it. She apologizes and I tell her it's not her fault and she has nothing to apologize for.

The lucidity continues. It's weird. Maybe the UTI was making her more squirrelly, I don't know. I'm not complaining.

I really have a desire to visit Lake Superior. It's been about 4 years since I have been back to Duluth. I love seeing the big lake with all of the seagulls and ships, how it glistens like diamonds in the sun.

Angie starts college today. She will be a freshman at Webster University in St. Louis, MO. I think she is going to like being in college.
