This week was one of those times when it seems nothing ever goes the way you plan for it to go. After the kids were here last weekend, my son Frank went back to AZ with them until they returned late Thursday or early Friday morning.
After they got to AZ, Eve started to have problems with her car and we weren't sure she would be able to get it fixed. So we were maybe going to have to drive to AZ to pick up Frank. So glad we didn't have to do that.
Jeff and I had some time together, since he only had to work Monday and Tuesday of last week. We enjoyed having the house to ourselves. We worked on the house, purchased 4 dvd's, had movie days and just hung out.
I did make it to the gym a couple of times but decided just to take the week off from the site because I was having problems with my computer. When Jeff was in Chicago, he did some updates and the lap top just wouldn't let me enter anything or work correctly and it drove me crazy. We also started to take down our chimney for the house redo that starts in June.
The kids got back home and on Friday morning I took my daughter Samra up to the city of Monrovia (near Pasadena) to shop at a specially bra shop. Samra is very endowed and it has been a problem to get the correct size. All of the kids have joined the Planet Fitness where they live in AZ, and Samra needed a good workout bra. I was able to get her one workout bra, and 3 other bra's. They ranged in size's 2 (38-HH), 1 (38-J) and the sports bra was a 38-G. They were fitted and now she is a happy camper. It cost me $272, so with the 80 mile round trip and a lunch , it was a spendy day, to say the least. I am just happy she has some well fitted bra's now.
On Easter I took her over to her friend Jenny's home in the city of La Palma (Jenny lives in AZ near where she lives). Jenny had a baby boy about 5 weeks ago and she really wanted me to see the baby. He is so cute and very good too.
The whole time Samra was here she couldn't hear out of one hear and she was in so much pain, she had her friends drop her off at the ER last night. So I was up late, picking her up and taking her to the pharmacy. Her ins. worked for the ER but wouldn't pay for her medication, so I paid for that $72. This was not a cheap weekend for me.
Earlier in the afternoon Phred the Wonder Dog decided to chase something under our deck. After we finally got him out he was no longer a white dog, but very black. I got elected to bathe him, which is not a fun chore. So after that we heard from Jory's girlfriend Eve (Samra lives with them in AZ) that she had been in a fender bender but was OK.
So the whole of last week was rather strange here, weather was warm one day then cold the next. We had rain yesterday morning and today was nice.
I am going to post a few pictures that my friend emailed me from the hike at Borengo Springs a few weeks back on another blog today.
