Well Eva is 3. SO she says to me, today I am 3 then I will be 4 like my brudder. LOL yea sure sweetie as Thomas will be 5 in Jan. Where has the time gone.
So last night son and dil decorated the living room with pink. She wanted pink birthday. lol So they bought cheap tablecloths at the dollar store and put on the table, couch, chair, decorated with pink everything. They gave her one of her gifts now and then Thomas said I want to get her something very special from me. Chris explained we have gifts for when Henry comes over ( cousins as they don't do a big party) and Thomas said NO now papa come in my room. I want to give her my buzz!!! well BUZZ lightyear is his "teddy bear" that is his favorite toy, he has a Halloween costume from a year ago that is way too tight and he wears that. HE is BUZZ. So ds explained that you don't get it back, if you give it to her it is now hers. ( sure she will let him play etc but it is now hers). Thomas was good with it as he said well Papa everyone should have a buzz.... and maybe I can get a new one on my birthday or something. So he gave away his buzz! lol He was so proud and happy for her.
LOL now saying that I am sure that there will be times when he is carrying it around and it is now hers. but just the fact that the actually thought that and gave his very fav. thing to her is pretty awesome for a 4 year old!
So today, calling the police so they can know about the window and the incident about the cement thrown at the truck a few weeks ago. I had forgotten about that till dd reminded me. Also going out with dad and dd to lunch at the restaurant we all go to, that I closing on Thursday. No more greasy breakfasts. have to find some where else hubby! lol
Then ds and Eva the birthday girl are coming over. His tradition - he takes the day off and he spends time with the birthday child alone. they love their papa, and he works 2 jobs and to them it is so great to just go be with papa. So they wil come over and visit us and great grampa dutch, who for now is feeling okay. Tomorrow is dads cardiologist appointment, to which I will go with him.
Today sun is up, very cool wind and not a lot. tidy before they come and hubby was going to see about the one section of fence on the side that is sloping - it is crazy neighbours and she wont fix it. then all the outdoor work is done. Till next spring when we want to put stuff around shed etc. that will wait.
Okay off to tidy and get birthday stuff wrapped.

So yes more drama and stress in my life. but am so thankful that I wasn't standing at the sink cos I would have had a face full of glass had the inner window broken too. Even if not I would have been even more scared with the noise that close. Anyway today we have to call about the window.
Even with dad being worse yesterday( today he is going out for his coffee and blood work and no I don't need you to come), and then the window, and nutty next door wanting us to put out her garbage and showing us her ribs ( she cracked 2 ribs and is all bruised, yea the looney neighbour again), I have not overeaten, junk food eaten and have felt relatively sane! Yes dad gets to me, but that is cos he gets so very grouchy and only with me. Oh well I know that and am doing better at walking away even though it is hard when he is not breathing well etc. I know he will call up to us and say okay I will go now.
Today, flu shot at 1:30, call about the window. Hubby was going to put a new outlet in one spot and go put one in for dd. ( they have a spot to charge your phone or pad on). And I was hoping to get some stuff moved around. So no time for hanging around doing diddly that just leads to wandering for food. I tend to wander into kitchen and always look in cupboard or fridge.
I read one time that if you think you are hungry, ask are you hungry enough to eat an apple? Yesterday I did and yes I did eat a very small apple. I chuckled to myself and then said good going girl.
I am going to do this. Oh gotta go call drs. just remembered 2 diff ones left us messages on Friday. cya HUGS
Was standing talking to ds on phone, and looked out just under the table on upper deck and sure enough a rock. No reason for a rock to be on our upper deck so someone did throw it at the window. about 3 wks ago I got up in th eam. and saw rocks smashed on driveway and one big one that had burst just a few inches from bed of our brand new truck... man I hate living beside a public path... and a high school on either end so always kids going by. Will call the police just to let them know. Ironically one drove by today while I was out with allie, I would have flagged him down had I known then. argh.

It always seems to be something..... Dad seemed to improve over the day so is home and in bed.
Around 7 pm we heard a huge bang, like something in microwave exploded or the shelves of the fridge broke. We both ran into kitchen and looked nothing, hubby opened deck door nothing. So we ran down thinking what could have happened. Dad is laying on the bed reading said what was that noise. I opened dads back door and there is glass everywhere. Our kitchen window outer pane broke and exploded. Hmmm. It almost looks as if something hit it, but if so they would have had to throw up high and also it didn't hit the inner glass. So no idea what that will cost to replace... if it can be taken out and fixed or someone will have to come up on ladder etc. anyway. geesh. Probably not worth our paying our deductible. but glad it was only one pane and no one was hurt.
Have done well with eating again today, not too much and all good and healthy. Now to have a cup of tea and read as I went to bed too late last night.
Tomorrow, who knows, dad to hospital or maybe just another day. Hubby and I have got our flu shot appointment booked, I don't want one but feel I should while dad is so ill.
And now to add to the list, call and find out about the window.... seems always something. at least hubby got the back fence done. only one panel on the side to fix for winter then hopefully can start on the bathroom.....
night all. HUGS

So got up this am, and went to put dad's socks on and he said NO going to the hospital. I said oh okay and yes he was breathing heavy. He said no now, I said well you let me know when. Very grouchy which I can commiserate with and understand. However when he gets like that I don't do well, I get angry. So went to check later and he was back asleep in bed. Okay. Then hubby had said last night,he wanted to go out for breakfast in the morning. So I told dad when I went down that we were planning to go out but if he wasn't comfortable alone tell me. NO I am Fine go. so said okay we will go later. He knows it is always 10 or 10:30. Hubbys meds keep him awake in eve so he rarely goes to bed before 2. anyway I went down at 10:30 said we are going are you sure you want me to go. NOW? you aren't back. I said dad I told you I would tell you when we left and you know we don't go till now. JUST GO. I thought I should stay but no, not starting this, he can tell me or ask me. also I have my phone and we aren't far.
So we went, found out the place is closing, they pay 13,000 a month rent!!!!! their breakfasts are only 5.99! geesh. anyway back home in just less than an hr and he is in bed sleeping. Will check on him in a bit.
I honestly don't mind taking him to hospital and I do understand he hates them and that is also the one where mum passed away. But I don't do well with him being mean and rude to me. NO matter what I say it doesn't change. Same as some here saying get him to eat whatever or pick out. HE wont. I offer him supper every night now, and most times it is no, or you don't cook with salt, doesn't taste the same adding it after. I don't like this or that. Well sorry, but can only cater so much. Also as he ages he isn't eating as much. I have worked in long term care a long time so understand the nuances, just him and I clash. He has always either not talked to me, or been grouchy. Even when he helps us out, ie money or use his car etc. it is so grouchy here take this use this. ... oh well gotta love him the old coot! So worry about how I will be when he is gone, guilt, sad, the entire gamut. I felt guilt with mum even though I know I did what I could at the time. So far I know I am doing what I can and what he will allow.
So on to me, eating well still, walking and physio stuff. I am continuing positive about my surgery, just still that little curious about getting it done when the bones have worn even so doesn't hurt now but .... it is time. Today I got hubby to say what 3 things he wants made for xmas . That's it. Maybe a gf free item or 2 cos of sil, bil and dd and her hubby. Also have to figure what to freeze. maybe a beef stew and just add potatoes after in crockpot while it thaws. A few other ideas and dd has tons of ideas for that. Then Christmas this year his family still not speaking so no exchange there. fine as I was thinking about time, we all have kids and grands so is a good time to stop. And our small family we are going to exchange names too as it is cheaper and we all don't need lots. But want to get the grands done.
It will all work out in the wash, I just hope and pray that all the problems with dad don't escalate so that my stress messes even more with my health. I want to do the best I can to be super strong and healthy going into this. That's all I can do!
