On Friday, my Moma and I left to drive down to Berkeley to see my brother, Wes:
We arrived with a trunk load of groceries for him. When he was up last, he couldn't believe the low prices at Winco, so we shopped for him before we left. While we were down there, we took him to a Mall to get a few things he needed and then to Lucky to grocery shop. When you ride Bart, it's hard to carry all your groceries, so you end up only getting a few things at a time. This trip he was able to stock up on some things since Moma drove us plus he had two other people to help carry everything up the stairs to his apartment.What did we do all weekend? Glad you asked!! We sat around and visited, watched movies (well, I slept while Moma and Wes watched movies), watched a ballgame and ATE, ATE, ATE!!! All Haleys love to eat!! When we were done with one meal, we were talking about and planning where to eat the next one. We had Chinese Food, Italian Food, Pizza, yummy breakfasts, hamburgers and fries, ice cream, and PEPSI, PEPSI, PEPSI (another thing our family loves).

We enjoyed delicious chocolate bars and twists, cold milk, great conversation, and laughed and laughed! I can't think of a better way to start my morning than that!!
I love you, Hilary!!
Before school started, I looked up and saw one of the teachers I had in 7th and 8th grade walk in the Cafeteria door. I was soooooo shocked!! Mrs. Glazzard is retiring in 13 days after working at Pacheco School for 38 years. I was blown away to think that one of my teachers was still there after all those years. We talked about old times, other teachers, and our fun time with the Drill Team (Mrs. Glazzard was the Advisor for our Drill Team).
Throughout the day, as people came in to vote, I saw soooo many people I knew but had not seen for so many years. People from North Valley Baptist Church, parents of kids I went to school with, parents of my brother's friends, men who worked with my Dad, and old-time friends of my parents. I was referred to as "Waldo's daughter", "Waldo and Marie's daughter", "Wes' little sister", and (of course) "Julie Haley".
There were two precincts at Pacheco School. Two of the ladies working on the other precinct have known my family since before I was born. Both of their husbands worked with my Dad for years. What fun it was to visit with them throughout the day! I also had the great opportunity to get acquainted with some new "friends" I had never worked with before. I had a great big smile on my face all day!!
P.S. Oh, did I forget to mention, I will be getting a check for $100 for serving on the election board!!! HURRAY!!!

We had a wonderful time visiting for 3 1/2 hours. Michael and I can talk about anything (and I do mean anything!!) and everything. He is such a wonderful, loyal, caring, kind friend who loves me (and many others) unconditionally. He loves my husband and kids, too. In spite of all the difficult things he has been through, he is so forgiving and remains upbeat and positive.
Michael, always remember, God loves you and I love you and that's the way it will always be!!

Happy Mother's Day to my wonderful Mom, too. I can't express in words what all she means to me. I love you, Moma! Thank you for all the wonderful things you do for me and my family!
