Good Evening again - Today was a fun day today. Addi and I hunted for a neighborhood park and found one with some kids for her to make friends. She got all hot and sweaty and used some of her energy and then when we were driving back we found a Gymboree that had a class she could be part of where she can play, paint and dance around with kids her again. She called it "Gymboree School" (I think she misses playing with kids the most) Then she played with Miss Evelyn and tonight we went to Southpoint mall and found friends of friends, Kate, Zach and Zach to Addi played with Zach for a while. What a great day for her!
Bo had another good day as well. He walked again 300 feet and then had 2 trach trials this afternoon and night. One was for 45 minutes and the other for an 1 hour, before he pootered out (is that a word?) He should sleep well tonight and the tomorrow we push his lungs some more.
I did want to take a moment and thank everyone for following, encouraging and being a part of this incredible journey. I cannot thank you enough for the cards, presents, companionship and encouraging words on the blog. The Johnson Family every day makes it through because of all of you. Please know that we do not and will not ever take you for granted. We are truly blessed to have the friends we have, for the ones we have met face to face and the ones that are friends through this blog. I cannot wait to see all of you soon.
Christi and Addi, and Bo

By the way spellcheck does not think pootered out is a word, but I am sticking with it! ("tired out" for those not following the Christi isms)

As a fellow user of blogspot I can tell you that their spell-checker is not that reliable. After all, Walker does not appear to be a word to them and we all know that Walker is one of the strongest words in the English dictionary next to Johnson. Bo's recovery and strength comes from your and Addi's love.

Candace, Connor, Rylee, Belle, and I consider ourselves very luck to be able to witness this miracle, share in it with you, and more importantly call you guys are friends. We love you all very much.

P.S. Tell Bo to stop checking out the hot nurses b/c the hottest nurse has been by his side the whole time!

Work from home theory is fast gaining popularity because of the freedom and flexibility that comes with it. Since one is not bound by fixed working hours, they can schedule their work at the time when they feel most productive and convenient to them. Women & Men benefit a lot from this concept of work since they can balance their home and work perfectly. People mostly find that in this situation, their productivity is higher and stress levels lower. Those who like isolation and a tranquil work environment also tend to prefer this way of working. Today, with the kind of communication networks available, millions of people worldwide are considering this option.

This is the most common and highly preferred job that Women & Men like doing. Since in today's competitive world both the parents have to work they need a secure place to leave behind their children who will take care of them and parents can also relax without being worried all the time. In this job you don't require any degree or qualifications. You only have to know how to take care of children. Parents are happy to pay handsome salary and you can also earn a lot without putting too much of an effort.

For those who have a garden or an open space at your disposal and are also interested in gardening can go for this method of earning money. If given proper time and efforts nursery business can flourish very well and you will earn handsomely. But just as all jobs establishing it will be a bit difficult but the end results are outstanding.

Freelance can be in different wings. Either you can be a freelance reporter or a freelance photographer. You can also do designing or be in the advertising field doing project on your own.

Diet food
Since now a days Women & Men are more conscious of the food that they eat hence they prefer to have homemade low cal food and if you can start supplying low cal food to various offices then it will be a very good source of income and not too much of efforts. You can hire a few ladies who will help you out and this can be a good business.

Thus think over this concept and go ahead.
