Monday, September 10, 2012

We had a visit with my mother in law. My husband is suppose to help his sister in her business when her daughter has her baby. She is due Oct.3. I felt I needed to get home and check on our home and etc. So I encouraged my husband to stay with his mom until his sister needs him. I feel bad because it could be another three weeks. But with the price of gas and getting him back up there he is already there. Besides I am sure his mom will enjoy him and he can do some odd jobs for her. It seems odd with him not here. Got home and thanks for rain, the grass had over grown. I got lots of exercise this afternoon, mowing the yard. Ready for bed tonight.

    I think his mother is going to love having him stay. You said she was very lonely. She will always remember this gift of time. And it is good for him too. He will be happy to return home when the time comes, and you will be happy to see him!

    I know what you mean when hubby is not around. There was a time when his company sent him to Germany for a month. My son will be having his baby around Oct 5. Good thing is you got a lot of exercise. Take care & have a fabulous day!

Last big weekend of the Summer.

Friday, August 31, 2012

It doesn't seem like it should be Labor Day already. It seems like when you get a little older the the day isn't exciting as it was when you were younger. Of course back then gas wasn't almost $4.00 and things were les expensive. It seem when you are on a fixed budget one really has to watch every penny. Well we decided we are going to see my husband's mom. She is 87 years old and very lonely. I wished we lived closer so we could ses her more often. It shouold be fun getting out of town and having a change of scenry. I hope everyone has a happy and SAFE weekend.

  Hope you had a great weekend. Your mother in law must have really appreciated the visit. Visiting the elderly is a mitzvah (a kind thing to do - a good deed).

    Yes, time flies! Totally agreed with you that festive seasons is not exciting when you are older! Yes, those gas prices are ridiculous! I know what it is like when you are on a fixed budget and one really has to watch every penny. It's great that you are going to visit your mother-in-law. Have a safe and enjoyable trip!

Pease wish me LUCK!!!

Monday, August 27, 2012

Well I am on disability. I had two hip surgeries in 2010. Tomorrow I am going to take a Census test for a part time job. I think it would work out perfect for me. I take a 30 minute test . If I should pass it (I hope), they will then interview me. Men who have the been in the military get more points. I just hope I get it.

    Hope all goes well for you, AND that you actually get the job!

I have a friend who has been doing the census for years, as one more way for her to have some income. She was widowed about 15 years ago and had to finish raising her twin daughters on her own.

I will keep you in my thoughts!
Hugs,
Kathy

It has been a lazy Saturday!!

Saturday, August 25, 2012

We got some more rain during the night. That is such a blessing. We are so dry here in Kansas. Then when I got up this morning, my husband hushed at me and told me to look out my bahroom window. There has been a stray calico cat around which I have left food and water out for it. Well this morning it was on the chair with a cushion pillow sleeping. It must have stayed about an hour or two. I even went out our back door not to wake and scare it off. Some how this makes me happy. I always feel sorry for strays. The rest of my day I have been doing SP things and enjoying my saturday. I hope everyone is having a great day. Alice.
