Nice weather!

Thursday, May 09, 2013

We got more rain last night. I fell asleep listening to the thunder, lightening and the pitter patter of raindrops on the window. I did get a good nights sleep last night and am looking forward to another one tonight. DH is working late this evening so will be a little later getting to bed than usual but once in a while that's OK. Not much happening here today except exercises!

    Glad you got a good nights sleep. I love sleeping with rain falling. Unfortunately we don't get much of that here. I like listening to the thunder rumble in the distance too. We don't get much of that either.

    We had thunderstorms almost all night so the grandson didn't sleep well at his house. Since we took care of him today you can imagine what kind of a day we had. Those little ones need their sleep!!! Patience on his part just goes out the window! LOL

Rain

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

We have been having showers off and on all day. We sure need all of the rain that we can get as most everyone does. DH got all of the mowing done on his days off so this little bit of rain will get it growing again. We usually have real nice Buffalo grass but the last several years have been quite hard on it. I think that the grass just stays dormant and only the weeds are growing right now.

I am hoping that I can get some good sleep tonight. I am getting desperate so may have to take desperate measures!

    Hope you get some good sleep tonight - if it would help, I can go through the list of books I've read in the past year and recommend the most boring!

    We have been really wet here, but temps are finally getting into the low 70's today. It felt so good to be out in the sun planting the tomatoes again. With all the low temps at night we lost the ones we planted earlier. I plan to do some yard and garden work again tomorrow.

Hope your cough gets better. It is terrible when a cough keeps you from getting the sleep you need. I used to get up and fix Sleepytime Tea which seemed to calm the urge to cough, then I could go back to sleep. Took about an hour, but at least I got to sleep some more. Take care.

    Glad you are getting some rain back there. It would sure be nice to get some here. Right now we are having temps 15 degrees above the norm for this time of year. Hope you are able to sleep well tonight!

Good day

Monday, May 06, 2013

Things have gone really good for me today! The weather is warmer and so I am feeling much better, although I am still tired. I sit down for very long and want to go to sleep. Today was DH's last day off and we decided to just stay home. It's been real nice!

    Hope taking the day off will help you get completely well. We all need to take a day off now and then to recoop.

A better day

Saturday, May 04, 2013

Today has been a little better day for me although I have been slow to get things done. I have not been sleeping very well for about a week and I think that it has finally caught up with me. I was up at 3AM this morning but laid back down on the couch about 4:30AM. I was so tired after I had done my exercises I laid back down again and took another nap! I have had this Bronchitis and when the weather gets cold and damp again I just get worse and besides that my arthritis aches so bad that I have a hard time staying in bed all night. DH is on his days off but is working security patrol at the "Thunder on the Plains" drag races so I don't have to answer to anyone but me.

    I just read your post about losing Tuffy. I want to say I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a loved pet is very hard. I hope you can get over the bronchitis soon. I think I have almost gotten over mine except for a small lingering bit of congestion now and then. We need to get some consistant nice weather for a change. This has been such a cold wet spring. Totally different from last year! Take care and rest whenever you think you need to.

    Hope you get caught up on your rest and get to feeling better. I had that bronchitis/flu that was going around & it took forever for me to stop coughing.

Tuffy

Friday, May 03, 2013

This has been a tough day for me. We made it to the veterinary clinic with little trouble and while we were there things went well. Tuffy was such a little gentleman and walked on his leash like he was used to it. The Dr. gave us the bad news that Tuffy was a very sick little guy and prescribed all kinds of medicine for him. We started home and we were about an hour and a half from home when he walked over to his blanket, laid down and quietly left this world. He had congestive heart failure. We are so sad for ourselves but I know that he would never have taken those pills and he is not suffering anymore. I am thankful for that.

    I am so sorry about Tuffy. Our pets become a part of our families, and losing them (however our minds tell us it's part of life) is still terrible painful. I pray God will comfort you.

    So sorry about Tuffy! I had a dog several years ago that had congestive heart failure. It is so hard when we lose one of our furry family members.

    So sorry for your loss, but glad that Tuffy left peacefully and on his terms. It is so hard to lose a pet, they are members of our family. I've been worried about a sick cat this week and I've been to the vet twice this week - she has an upper respiratory infection. I think she'll be OK with the medications, but you worry. I'm sure you have a lot of great memories of Tuffy, but I know you will have sadness for a while. Hang in there.
