Six months have gone by ...and as usual, much has happened. My Federal case is over and legal costs were in the thousands. I did not receive reinstatement so I can't go back to work Federally - not that I wanted to but it would have been nice to complete 30 years instead of 28. Now receiving Social Security, free medical through the State of California (thank you!) and my days are my own.
The stress of the last two years are gone and I've returned to the life I love doing. Taking care of me and my girls and doing what it is I like to do.
Here are some pictures of my girls. Now thirteen years old they are my favorite things to take care of.
This is my Sissy. She is the most vocal and most loving. She wakes me up, talks to me, follows me around like a dog and, altho' I hate to say it, she is my very favorite.
This is Celia, the oldest sister (there are four in all). I call her Momma because as little girls she took care of her smaller sisters. Momma sleeps with me while the other girls come and go throughout the night. She is a bit chubby.
Here are CiCi and CiCi Bon lounging on the bed with Sissy. When they were little I could not tell CiCi and CiCi Bon apart. They all have different personalities. CiCi Bon is the baby.
Not sure I ever posted this picture below. It is a view from the living room down the hallway and into the kitchen. Out of view is the doorway to the bathroom as well as the rest of the kitchen and the pantry.
