Journal Entry 113
Aleece has been returned to her mom Casey, permanently this time. Casey assures me that her days of taking chances are over. She plans to settle down and give Aleece a stable environment. I hope this is true because Aleece needs her mom. I’ll be watching.
I spent the rest of yesterday evening and most of today alone. It was nice, quiet and peaceful. I woke up at 8 o’clock this morning and for a brief moment I thought about starting my day. Then I had a thought. If someone in Bear Country needed my assistance they could just wait until later. I climbed back into bed and didn’t climb out again until almost ten. I didn’t get dressed until almost noon. Not one person stopped by or knocked on my door. I love lazy days.
After breakfast or rather lunch. I went down to the park and sat under the big oak tree and watched the ducks. I couldn’t have asked for a nicer day with no cares and no worries. I almost made myself cry when I thought about how much Aleece loved watching the ducks. I am sure Casey will bring Aleece to the park occasionally. I watched a couple of tribes on the opposite side of the lake play football. They looked like they were having a good time. Every time someone scored a touchdown you could hear people cheer and see them dance on the field.
