My parents safely arrived yesterday afternoon which is great.
They are both in their 80's and very active, fit persons with no current health concerns. When I go stay with them, they are go, go, go, but when they come here they sleep, sleep, sleep.
Each time I have come into the living room today, they are asleep on the couch! I am hoping it is just the long drive here (1200 miles driven in 2 days) but worry about them perhaps being just bored.
Any suggestions on how to entertain older persons on a limited budget would be appreciated?

Well, today is the day, my parents are coming today, HOORAY !
I haven't seen them since last Christmas, when I weighed 226 lbs., and wait till they see me now. I am down to 162 lbs!
They will be so surprised and even more proud of me than they were before.
I can't wait, I am so looking forward to spending some time with them, even though I have been complaining about how much work they are (they are in their 80's).
It is time to now slow down and enjoy them while we still have them. My mother is BIG on health, eating right and exercising, so I think she will live forever. She is up at 5:00 every morning to go to the gym for 3 hours! My dad is a big marshmallow (I do not mean fat, LOL) ... he is a big softie with a huge heart that has let him down once and he had to have surgery, so I do worry about him, but he has started since that time to visit with the gym each morning as well.
I gotta go, I am busy still getting ready, but my be absent or only posting shorties while they are here. I AM SO EXCITED !!!!!!!

As most of my friends on here know, I will be 'entertaining' my parents starting tomorrow for about 8 days (by entertaining I mean feeding, cleaning up after, and just generally waiting on them! LOL)
So, house MUST be spic and span and yard is to look immaculate, WHEW, am I exhausted today!
With all I am doing, I won't need to exercise! I was up at 6 am, started while babysitting my grand-daughter who thankfully has been amusing herself for the most part.
Seems however, the more I do the more needs doing as I am continually finding things that haven't been done for a while. We have 2 dogs and a cat, and I never realized how dirty they make the walls in my house, so I spent 2 hours washing down walls and baseboards on top of everything else I have been doing and will be doing today.
And on top of it all, my Dr. called to see me today! (notthing to worry over he said)
I was hoping to go get my winning goods mentioned in my prior blog, but now I know I will not have the time ..............
Oh, well, there is always tomorrow I guess, they won't be here until the afternoon and I have already cooked tomorrow's dinner ready. I certainly will sleep well tonight!!

I can't believe this, first I never watch television during the day time, but had the morning show on this morning to catch up on a news story from yesterday I had been interested in.
During the show, they had an interview with the owner of a very exclusive shoe store in the city.
She said to email and they were giving away a gift certificate for a pair of shoes, a purse or a piece of jewellery of the winner's choice.
For some reason, and I never enter contests, I was on the computer anyway, so thought what the hell .... and well, I won!!
A few hours later, I received an email from the TV station advising of my prize.
So, guess where I am going tomorrow ?? !!
Funny thing is I had a feeling I would win ...... call me a newcomer to contests from here forward!
I'm gonna buy a lottery ticket while my luck is good!! ....... WISH ME LUCK
