Haha! Debbieanne, I had to laugh about DD pushing a mower to do the lawns!! Mom's house has three acres of grass, we have almost one acre!! With our asthma we would be lining up ambulances in the driveway in ten minutes!! WE have to wear masks anyway just to be out in the air, so pushing a mower would be like standing in traffic at rush hour!!

I hope to get lots of things done today,, visited mom yesterday,, do not know if I can get to see her before signing day,, too much work just getting her business done,, will be grocery shopping soon(it is getting late, five a.m.,, got to get to store now), then paying her bills, organizing more of her documents for next week, arranging papers and doing phone calls for another investment cash-in later.
Go to Mass, make diner, DD will mow SOMEBODY'S lawn tomorrow,, it is supposed to rain today..
got to do house work, laundry tomorrow.. Happy Mothers day to me.. back to work Monday..

Going to call my friend Joe, to see if he will install insulation in my attic soon,, I planned on doing it , but moms things take too long and I want better insulation this summer and next winter,, do not see my bill going back to double digits in my lifetime, no matter what we do without...

next will be opening pool, no easy feat,, time to get supplies for that too..
This is an easy weekend,, next will be tending the berry patches and cutting some trees down, hopefully,, my saw is ready and waiting,, after I power-wash the deck and house...

    WOW.....and "your" time is scheduled for when?

Take 5 - for you! Remember, if you do not take care of yourself - you will NOT be able to take care of anyone or anything else!

    You're killin' me! You are not a machine you know! Makes me tired just reading your "to do" list. Make sure you schedule some "me" and "down" time in there somewhere, please.

Feeling kind of blue because my meds cause weight gain,, dry mouth, memory loss( already have that, with the fibromyalgia) so it seems like I am headed down that path to Fat Lady dementia..
gotta get out of this funk ,just facing reality,, but the sun IS shining,, jus tsitting her epaying bils, copying legal papers for mom, etc,,

last year at this time we were getting ready to open the pool and I was walking with my Pooky bear,, still got about a couple thousand gallons of water on the pool cover an dno Bear to walk with .. must be hormone day..

    A spa day would be a great treat. I've never had one. If you do, let me know how it goes for you.

    You'll never be fat lady again. Most of what you feel is bloat and not permanent. Be extra careful now with what goes in the mouth. Good Luck.You need a vacation.

Are the meds helping you? Talk to your doctor again maybe he can change what is making you bloat. emoticon

    LINDA, this is after the big day let down i think. You were so looking forward to the wedding and now it has gone by very successfully. You also have still got a lot to do for your mother.

Try not to beat yourself up. it will get better and the blooming weather is enough to make a parson swear as my Granny used to say.
I am here for you. You can do this, I too took meds that made me gain weight and I went off them and felt rotten so now i am back on them and I too have to decide which way to go with this.

HUGS Take care Love you Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    LINDA it is pouring here too and very cold. We had planned to go to see our Plattsburgh family but there is rain , snow and possible freezing rain so we will have to stay home we think. We were hoping to go tomorrow. Safety is the first issue.
Lake champlain is really very high right now, so we will most likely be home for Mothers day. Pat in Maine. HUGS emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    LINDA, I am glad you got the certificate that will definitely help your Mom for sure.
I hope you are able to find the stock certificates they must be recorded somewhere, perhaps there are some references to them from a broker at some point. I hope there is someone who can help you there. Perhaps the bank manager. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonPAT
