Found out I'm going to be gone starting tomorrow, until Sunday evening, then on the 6th until the evening of the 10th of August, then the 15th until the 17th, wow..a busy month coming up and I'm not sure I'm ready for it or not.
Especially the almost full week..that's a lot of work. I mean I love going down for the pony show, but once again this year the "friends' of ours who always seem to back out on us, after making promises to be there, once more backed out.
They've done this year after year, "oh we'll be there, we've taken the time off, blah blah blah", and then come the week of, or so, they make "excuses". a few years ago it was "oh we have to be out of our house in August and will be moving". Well, they still haven't moved out. Now this year, the same excuse "we have to be out in August" and they're still there.
We constantly sent them addy's of houses for sale, and they constantly found something wrong with the house, every single one of them, until finally we just stopped sending them addy's. We figured if they wanted a house they could find one themselves. We didn't even believe them when they said they'd be at the show this year because, well, we're tired of their promises, too. Our daughter has made so many friends down there, she's got plenty of people who will help her out, so we have a great time down there.
Our other happenings are a wedding going on the week after the show, in fact that's at the place where our daughter was going to have her reception but changed her mind, the Dousman house. Thank goodness she changed her reception to The Barn, instead...this way it'll be special.
My cousin and his fiancee are having their wedding and reception at the Dousman building, which is beautiful, but they can't have barrels of beer there, which is fine. Glad the river's gone down now, otherwise it would have been flooded there. Just hope it doesn't rain anymore, otherwise they'll have trouble with high water again.
Anyway, I'm off (no comments *L*) have a great day, see you Monday.
Oh, we had a Turkey visitor in our backyard, here's a few pics.

Went for my walk today and it wasn't bad, almost wore my tee shirt, then walked outside and said nope, sleeveless is great. And I'm glad I did, I was so warm when I returned. That breeze, like it's been for quite a few years anymore, was soooo cool, I'm sitting here now and want to put on my tee shirt, or at least a long sleeved one over this one. Cannot believeit's like this. I love the breeze, but I'd rather it be a true summer breeze instead of a spring/fall one.
Oh my gosh, the hassel to cancel a check anymore. We paid the Videographer to reserve the date for the wedding, $200. They didn't respond so I called yesterday and they said they'd not gotten the check. Called the bank and it's not sent through, called the daughter, nope.
So, they said they could cancel it if we need to, so I told them after I'd call everyone (this was before doing it all), I'd let them know. $35 to cancel a check...REALLY?????? It' costs $35 to cancel a check? I'm in the wrong business!!!!
Then, when I called today, they said we had to come in to sign something. COME ON, why in the world didn't you tell us that yesterday, we live a good 25 minutes away, it's not like I'm in town a few minutes from there. And she just couldn't understand why my husband, who works at least 30-35 minutes away, couldn't drive in after work to sign it. Unbelievable!!
I told her we'd been members of that bank jointly since 1982, and my husband and his parents had accounts there long before that. She said well if we're able to send it without a signature I won't call you back, but make sure you come in tomorrow.
I have such a headache from this, drives me insane!
Ok, that's my rant for the day, I hope you all find something to smile about and share that with others. Have a great Wednesday.

It was so humid and hot today, I took my walk waaaaay early, then as soon as I got back, I jumped in the pool. Though it felt cool (because my body was hot and the air was hot and humid), once I got used to it, boy...heaven.
I couldn't stay in long because someone was coming by to change the tanks, but at least I got a good 45 minutes in there.
I could tell I didn't have the bandages on, my lower back was hurting today and my foot where it had been hurting. My legs didn't hurt, but then my body wasn't adjusting to the correct way to walk either. I'm supposed to get the inserts in a week or two, and then they'll tell me how long to wear them then.
I so look forward to this, and I hope you all find something to smile about today. Stay safe, if you're going to be getting any of these storms, and as always, SMILE through the storms!!

Ok..so this was my DOH weekend....
I got to the Doctor's office today, sat down in the chair and the nurse asks me about how my feet were feeling, my legs, etc...I asked her if she wanted me to take off the bandages......
(time stops, at least in my mind)...she looks at me and I know darn well she was trying not to laugh...she says "you had them on all this time?"
I said, yep, no one told me to take them off, so I figured I had to have them on until I came back.
She got a grin and said, no you could have taken them off the next day.
Talk about feeling like an idiot, I about died of embarrassment. So when the Doctor comes in, big smile on his face, which I KNOW was because of the bandages, he says "you know, it's alright, it probably helped your feet more, so how did you feel?"
Geez, I could have taken showers, went swimming all of that instead!!
Anyway, now that's over, I have to get an insert for my right shoe because, from the x-rays, my right foot has a very high arch, my left a high arch, but not as high. the angle of my right is 28 from the front of the heel bone to the middle of the arch; the left has a 32 degree angle, and the measurement from my ankle to my big toe joint is 8 on my right, and 17 on my left, so you can see the difference.
I did find out that the left/middle part of my back hurting, my bone sticking out on my right foot a little, and the misalignment of my hips, slightly, were all due to my arch.
In other words, when you step down, normally you foot will flatten, a little, the arch does compensate, but then when you bring your heel up, your arch will come back up, but mine doesn't, so these will fix that, thus fixing everything else in my body YAY!. I'm all for that *L*
So there you go, my medical history, of sorts, I may have some things wrong, but I'm just so excited *L*

It is sooo nice outside, unbelievable, it's nearly the perfect day out there. A little breeze, warm..I cannot believe it. If I didn't have these dang bandages on my heels, I'd be in the pool in an instant with the radio on and something cold to drink, the unbrellas on the deck, and my cushions on the deck benches....hmmmmm heaven, I swear, or at least close to it.
Now I'm getting anxious to get these off, I'm so tired of having to take a sponge bath and all that trash, it almost looks like rain out, and I wish my husband would get to work on those back steps, I would do it but you know how men usually are, you do it and it's wrong, but they'll take forever to get started on it, because they have to do this and that etc etc. You get the idea.
And guys, you know I'm talking the truth!!
Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful week and never forget that smile to lead someone through the darkness.
