    I used to do our bank statements and Mom's. Hubby manages to distract me and then I forget where I am or my train of thought. When he just quit paying on the car, I told him, the finances were going to be his responsibility. When I met him, he let a truck be repossessed and owed his brother-in-law for money that he loaned to my husband.

    He was also getting duplicate government checks from the VA for his GI bill. I told him I wouldn't marry him until he was debt free. We paid the money back, but I told him the way he was acting, we would lose everything in our old age. I would have to deduct each car payment from our register and sometimes we got overdraft charges because it was taken out automatically from checking. He was not going to be able to blame me for that if we lost the car. That seemed to straighten him up. I still don't know what we have in checking or savings, but I am not giving him all of our money to use up.

    Thanks for that phone number and site.

    Hubby went swimming with me this evening. He made short yelping sounds because the water is cold when you first get in. He was holding his arms above the water and I tried to get him to exercise in the water catching floating stuff with a net. He did that and even ducked his head under the water, but after about 20 minutes he was done.

    He went back into the house to shower and I continued to stay in the pool until he came out after he had showered and dressed.

    I did 12 running laps around the inside of the pool, did some kicks holding to the side of the pool and a few knee raises. I floated on my back for a long time.

    Jasmine's mother posts something about her daughter or her grief on Facebook daily. It is so sad, but Jasmine had so many friends and their responses on Facebook are helping, I believe.

    When it is in the 80s and the wind is blowing, the pool does not feel warm. It has been holding its heat. It was 78 this morning around nine when I went out to skim the surface. The wind blows leaves and bugs into the water and it is an everyday chore to skim the surface and sometimes twice a day.

    I would like a hot day with no wind to get that water temperature up.

    Hubby had a polyp removed. He has a hiatal hernia and diverticulosis. He doesn't have to have another colonoscopy for 5 years.

    I don't know what will happen to the family reunions. Many are past the age of 50. The older ones seem to know how to organize one and see that all are fed, but the young people sit and look at their smart phones and have no concept of what it is like to invite others and do the cleanup afterwards.

    Your chocolate chip cookies looked good. I can't have any of the ingredients.
