Sounds like you've been really busy. My grands have one more week of summer vacation and then school starts. I'll be left with just the baby.

Today I gardened for 90 minutes then gave DD a massage. She rarely likes being touched but has a sore back that is not going away.

I also had a young neighbour the kids grew up with come over and give me a big hug and chat. I sometimes feel like we are not connected with the neighbours but he obviously felt like we were important in his life at some point. He is home helping his parents re-shingle their roof.

My daughter in Waterloo has now been moved by her boyfriend to another room in another house and is in the last phases of "school". She has officially graduated from her Master's program with an average in the high 80's through out her program. Woo hoo! However she is still suffering l with serious gastric problems. Today is another test at the hospital. I have been blogging about all the food I have made for her with her restricted foods. She is also ill with a cold and miserable. However there are less than 5 weeks left and she will be HOME. We have been problem solving how she is going to write her national exam. She just sent a copy of her confirmation for a hotel that is within 20 minutes walk of the place she has been assigned to write it at and will stay there 3 nights while writing. Anotehr of her classmates thinks she might do the same. If they are delayed by traffic or hurricane or... anything they have been told they get an automatic fail. If the computer program crashes during the exam they fail. My husband and I are certain that legally they cannot do this. Certainly the accomodations they are giving my daughter for her disability they are doing with great reluctance but in the letter they admitted that by law they have to comply. I sure hope she is not in the situation of having to take them to court if something goes wrong. It's a very expensive test to write and you don't get your money back even if it is not your fault you can't post your answers. I think the Accountants of Canada have way too much "power" if they can intimidate students like this.

Sorry about your fires Geri. It is that time of year and scary for many people. We have had a mix of rain and sun and today is lovely. It has been weeks since I have felt confident in my knee and today I managed to get all the way down the driveway weeding and tidy a bit of the garage. The van is FULL of DD's things from Waterloo that her boyfriend moved back and we need to have it empty to take a car load to "Walking with Dinosaurs", the arena production which we are doing for my eldests' birthday Wednesday.

I am sending my middlest to British Columbia to visit with her grandparents in Osoyoos, which is Canada's only "dessert". She plans to interview them and record history, stories over 5 days. They are both in their 80's now and very excited that she is coming. I was able to book the flight for only $150 using my aeroplan points and she gets to do 2 stopovers, one 10 hours overnight and one 8 hours during the day in Vancouver on the way there and back so hopefully can visit her cousin and see one of Vancouver's sites. I wish we could see them more often. My MIL did not come to my nephew's wedding in July as she became too anxious to travel. There was a dedication of a bench for them as a surprise which she missed and was heartbroken... so my husband photoshopped her into the pictures. Isn't technology marvelous!

I have joy in my soul and joy in my step. Walk with me! Justyna

I encountered an individual today at a local county fair who got "into my space" and insisted that he had a cream that would remove my wrinkles. -- Thank you, but "no thank you!"
Once I passed the "50" mark, that is part of my "character," wisdom, maturity and willingness to age gracefully!

(I'm sure he would have been offended if I offered him a cream to remove his "brown" skin color!!!!!!)

People don't understand physical and mental disabilities. I do. I have a grandson who has many mental problems and he wasn't always welcome at some family get togethers. We had to have several people watching him at all times.

About 5 1/2 hours by car. It's a long drive and I've done it by myself many times. Don't want to do it any more. It takes to long to recover.
It's 105 degrees with gray skies. It thundered and lightninged last night. It also rained. Weird weather!

They'll be here for one day and then we all go to the cabin. They're staying for a week but I'm coming home on Sun.

Thank you.
The temp is in the 90s and will be above 100 by Thurs. Yuck!
My daughter and her teen daughter and son are coming in Thursday night. They are bringing two other teens with them. It'll be fun to see them all.

I fell a couple weeks ago and hurt my arm/shoulder. It's gotten better but we have a dog who loves to have a ball thrown in the pool so she can jump in and get it. I throw the ball for her when my DD isn't here. Now my arm is hurting again. Must stop doing that.

Empty nest? The only time my nest was empty was the four years before I had children. I stayed home with my children, their friends, and my 8 grandkids. Beside my immediate family, I'm also watch 3 grands: boy 7, girl 6, girl 1. My nest will probably never be empty.

Hey girls, mind if I join you? I am looking for some close friends to get to know also and haven't really connected with anyone on this site yet. I really need some daily accounting to keep me in line if you know what I mean.

I am in my mid 50s, still working at home as a medical transcriptionist, which thankfully allows me to be the caregiver for my mom who had a stroke last year. I have 2 sons, one of which is divorcing so has moved back home. Can you say FULL HOUSE? I also have 4 cats that live with me, not to mention the neighborhood strays I feed outside. I love to fish and read, don't seem to have too much time for either lately. Trying to fit exercise and eating right into the plan sometimes works and sometimes doesn't but I am not going to quit trying.

My DH cleaned and froze the filets at the cabin so we won't be able to eat it here. However, we have a freezer FULL of salmon--Alaskan salmon!

We got only one fish and it was a kokanee. That's a type of salmon.
The weekend was very relaxing. I might be ready for the little ones again.

Going to the cabin tonight for three days. Taking DH, DD, two grandsons, and one grandson friend. Getting out of the heat and maybe fish for trout. May be too crowded.

It's 99 and overcast. At least there is a small breeze. I went grocery shopping, had a foot massage, and went to several garage sales.
