I Got Sleep!!!!!

I got six hours of sleep last night. Everyone clap their hands. Al slept the best last night of the past week.

I got fresh air today. It felt wonderful. I picked up some groceries including those extra things we need for holidays. Example, paper plates, napkins. I am going to be making this one dessert for Thanksgiving, called

Caramel Apple Salad



6 regular size Snickers Candy Bar

6 apples I used Red DeliciousGranny Smith would also be great

1 (5 oz.) package Vanilla Instant Pudding dry, do not prepare

1/2 cup milk

1 (12 oz.) tub cool whip

1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping


Whisk vanilla pudding packet, 1/2 cup milk and cool whip together until well combined.

Chop up apples and Snickers.

Stir chopped apples and Snickers into pudding mixture.

Place in a large bowl and drizzle with caramel ice cream topping.

Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.

It is sooooooo good!!! So I bought the snickers bars today to get them out of the way. Try it! You’ll like it!

I ate lunch out and picked up Al’s medications also. I took my time. I had no meetings with Hospice. Four hours all to myself.

I am starting to feel run down but then again it is almost my sleepy time, remember? 4Pm to 5PM. Our helper will be here tonight. I was told by her boss who called today that she can do light housekeeping so I am going to ask her nicely to dust Al’s room. It is such a mess of coca cola collections, it is always on my have to list that gets saved to the last.

When I got home there was a package waiting for me. Oh how I love surprises! I hurried and opened it up and I was so pleased. Inside was 2 bracelets and 2 T-shirts from the Executive  Director of M.S.A. Oh how proud I am to wear something to show Al and anyone who ask that I am an advocate of M.S.A and a cure. Here are the shirts and bracelets.

Before I close I want to thank the many friends who are requesting Al’s address. This is more than likely Al’s last Christmas, but then again I am not God. To send him a card makes me more joyful probably than he will feel. I just want to see his walls filled with colors of Christmas. Thank-you everyone. If you want to send a card, please email me at


for his address.

  1. Hi Terry-
    Glad you got some good hours of sleep & happy that Al slept well too.
    That salad sounds delish. And – it sounds pretty simple. I think I will give it a try.
