Just learned last night of my dear Uncle (I had just visited my aunt) passing. Not sure if we'll make the trip back for his funeral or not...will have to find out the arrangements. My family is dwindling. Talked with cousin and he's in a much better place now. Now they are looking forward to spoiling my aunt some now that she'll be free to do things with some of her kids.
No news on the job front for hubby. They said if he didn't hear from them the process is over. Don't know if they are slow or it's over. Not sure I like this new way of dealing with interviewing. Used to be you got a form letter or something.
Have been asked to teach a Tuesday night Bible study at church. Have decided to give up Praise Team for awhile and get back into leading Ladies Bible Studies. When I didn't work I regularly lead them but it's been awhile so we'll see how it goes.
Mom was a little under the weather. Was afraid she'd caught a cold at the celebration as it was held outdoors...but hubby was over with repairman for water softener and she felt better and had perked right up. Said she'd been up all night throwing up. Not sure what that was all about...probably from too many sweets and not enough good food...but she complains of that occasionally and not sure what all is going on. She is not loosing weight. I get concerned about her food intake. Hubby says she seems to eat enough to go to grocery but don't think she's eating too much variety any more. She eats salads and put some veggies in that and deli meats...but her diet is mostly soft foods...yogurt, cereals, applesauce, potato salads etc. Wish she would eat a little more meats or beans in her diet but you can't make her. Maybe she was just tired out from being outside in the air for 2 1/2 hours. I know the air and doing something would wear her out.
Having a community night this Friday night in our little town. If the weather permits will try and get her out. They have a music group perform and block off the street. Usually a swing band or country band that entertains with lots of the community coming out. WE haven't made it to one this year. Some weeks it was way too hot to have her out. The shops are open later and there are often carriage rides and refreshments. We take our lawn chairs and enjoy some time together. Hope it works out this week. Getting out will do us all good.
Yesterday was crazy at work. We were slammed. Worked until around 6 last night. It was non--stop all day. Went to bank and planned to go to lunch and walk but didn't want to leave co-worker...so picked her something up and went back and ate my lunch at my desk. Released 5 policies myself and that is unusual for me. Hopefully today will be a little slower so we can catch up with everything. I came home absolutely beat and Mom didn't want to go to Curves and I was glad as I came home and collapsed.
Getting my hair cut after work. It is always fun and time alone. Get to stop by Trader Joe's and pick up some things and the used book store. Makes for a long but fun evening for myself.
