I love my new apt. and assisted living. I am making friends so fast and the meals are great! I know I am going to gain weight but I will at least discipline myself enough not to ask for seconds.
Most of the staff are nice and really good. Usually they come and remeind me of mealtime and meds. time if I have forgotten.
I was so tired from my move that yesterday, I slept all day and all night! The staff had to wake me up for meds. and meals. I fell asleep at the table during supper! haha I really WAS tired. I think I will sleep good tonight too. I am very tired and my knee hurts a lot. I hope it does not keep me awake.
I have started using the stairs some for the first time since surgery. Right now I can only go up. I have not tried down yet. I am afraid I will fall. I have to use the rail and my cane when I go up but at least I am beginning.

I just love it here. I am so happy. And I feel safe.

I want to thank everyone for their support. Happy and Tired are both Sunny and I. I have told the people here the only time they pet Sunny is when he doesnt have his vest on and if the ask me first and if I say ok. Everyone here justs loves Sunny.

I just woke up from a 3 hr nap. It was wonderful. I could easily go back to sleep.

The food is great here and I have to watch the cupcarefuls I get from the cook carefully.

Sounds like you found the right place. I am soooo happy that you are settling in. I know that when my Grandma June moved into assisted living she made so many great friends that her spirits lifted in an amazing way. Best of luck in your new home. Before you know it you'll be running the place. lol.
