Too Much Social - Not Enough Progress
Thursday, August 04, 2011
Katy came home Saturday. Since then I've had lots of social things going.
Called Mom and Dad and found out Sis has been contacted by IRS regarding her 401(K) early withdrawal and the penalty involved. YIKES! She's hoping that G&G will take Maizey so that Rob will be able to live at the condo for the last term of college since he was robbed at gun-point three months ago. Chris really needs glasses. G&G will go to P.T. to get them for him if Sis doesn't.
Katy and I met with Babcia for lunch on Tuesday. We also shopped at Dress Barn and Hobby Lobby. That was pleasant enough.
Yesterday I met Stacy at Barnes and Noble. We talked for 2-1/2 hours and she got me caught up with all that was going on. She has made some tough decisions which affect the lives of many. I don't like all of her choices.
Today I need to take the bull by the horn and get some stuff done. Get the resume out to - SOMEWHERE!, get stuff sorted in the basement, financial stuff done for the month, and EXERCISE and EAT WELL.
Saturday is the Perkins wedding and Sunday is the family reunion. Not sure if we'll go or what we'll take for the potluck.
Calories have been awful this week. I put on 6 pounds over the weekend - subs, pizza, Chinese, chili - that will do it! At least Jack and I have walked twice. More to come!
Jack's co-worker, Mark P, was asking for prayers for his wife. Jack went out and mailed a card. He found out that the wife died. An attorney in her low 40's - so many forms of cancer. That awful disease!!! Her mother saw a Dr. in "glowing" garments visit her. She witnessed him come in, give the sign of the cross, and speak words to the effect that it will be alright. He walked out. She followed him to the hall, but no one was there. Karen died about 24 hours later. Mark wants Jack to come to the funeral on Friday. I will probably go with him if he chooses to go.
Ellie got an early morning call from Cassie - crying. A routine physical found a mass the size of two apples. She wanted Ellie to come with her - but Ellie had to work. Cassie's mom didn't go with her to the Dr. to get the info. She will see a surgeon in two days. Family history of hysterectomies - mom and both grandmas. She told Ellie that she will have to be her surrogate mother. Yeah, right!
Ellie's house search continues - I wish she would get her degree first. She's tired of driving - can't blame her. P.T. wrote up directions on how to do laundry yesterday. P.T. also helped with dinner plans - a nice change. We found out that two girls have been assaulted and abducted at Corunna and Linden. Hope P.T. is careful leaving work. Katy is stressed about Circle K stuff and it is not in her character that she still has stuff sitting in the living room four days after coming home from DC. Jack will meet with Paul tonight to pick up food for next week's K of C installation of officers which 695 will host at SJV. The girls will head up to Mackinac on Sunday and return home on Monday. Next weekend will be the Art Walk and then on Saturday Ellie wants to go canoeing in Holt. Sounds like fun. We need some fun. That is the same weekend as Audrey's jewellery party. Just what they need to be doing - hosting a jewellery party. Geez.
Stacy's new office is the dentist for Uncle Mike and Lawrence. Small world.
Hopefully I can go back to sleep soon. This is great sleeping weather. I hope this blog will clear my mind of all sorts of stuff. 4:50 AM
