Just Letting You All Know

Sorry I have not been here in a while but some of you know that my husband has been told he is terminal with 6 months or less to live. He was in hospital for 3 weeks and came home where he wants to be. He has made all his final arrangements, talked to our kids and me about what he wants and who gets what,  papers are all signed. I am his sole caregiver  and at this point am pretty well worn out. He has had a lot of visitors and today thankfully nobody has come. I am not getting much sleep and can fall asleep at the drop of a pin like right now. We have two psw's coming in each day and a nurse every two days. So much to learn and remember. Hubby is awake almost 20 our of every 24 hours and I don't know how he does it. So this means I am awake too.
My son has been helping me quite a bit. Staying here if I have to go out, and I call him at all hours of the night to help me with is dad but that has now come to a stop. His wife is only 36 and just came home from hospital yesterday and is in a wheelchair. Her legs gave out like my hubbys but she is not bed ridden. So they have homecare coming in now too so he doesnt have the time to come when I need him. His wife will come first as I told him. He has been so good the last while back but now I am on my own.
Anyhow the psw just arrived so gotta run. I hope you understand and I will be back soon as possible.

When you Wish Upon a Pickle

 Here is a video for all the little ones to enjoy. Not associated with a giveaway at this time. Hope everyone enjoys it.
This is a digital-only release of the primetime special Sesame Street - When You Wish Upon Pickle, out June 2 from all major digital retailers.

Los Angeles – Winner of the 2019 Primetime Emmy® Award for Outstanding Children’s Program, Sesame Street – When You Wish Upon a Pickle will be available for digital download on June 2, 2020 from Shout! Factory  and Sesame Workshop 

The acclaimed primetime special features guest appearances by Blake Lively and Amanda Seyfried.

When a mysterious wishing machine is delivered to Sesame Street, Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, and Ernie find their wishes coming true after they talk to the magical pickle inside. One word of warning though: when you wish upon a pickle, make sure you read ALL the directions first! When Elmo wishes to be a grown-up and run Hooper’s Store, he switches bodies with Chris. When Ernie tries to help his friend achieve his dream of becoming a TV meteorologist, Bert ends up trapped in the television, dashing from show to show. Cookie Monster’s wish for more cookies results in more Cookie…Monsters! Abby teams up with her favorite storybook detective – brought to life by a wish, of course – to figure out what’s going on in the neighborhood. In the end, the gang learns that if they believe in themselves, they can be anything they want to be — without needing magic.

Currently in its 50th season, Sesame Street is the country’s longest-running children’s television program, and has received more Emmy® Awards than any other show in television history.
