Monday – yesterday started out miserable – cold, rainy, dark. THEN late evening, the sun peeked out just for a bit. That was nice. Today, supposed to be much nicer. HOPE SO. Want to get Mom out for a walk.

Today they go to the podiatrist. That’s just a short trip and a short visit. So, that’s all good.

Dreading tomorrow. Mr. Spot has his eye surgery. Praying all goes well. It will be tough for him . . . AND his fur Mom and Dad!

Monday .. . . make it count!

Kelly: Yes, Mom enjoyed the libation! Requested it again today!

Yes, trying to mentally gear up for Spot’s surgery tomorrow. **SIGH** Feel so bad for him. But one day-at-a-time. Just praying that it all goes well.

Glad you didn’t have major storms yesterday.

Sunny: Yes, tears are indeed healing for body and soul. So glad your fever broke and you slept. That is healing, too – sleep1

Sharon: Thinking of you! Hope you’re having a good time (well, I know you are . . . just saying!)

Ok, see y’all @ 3. And we’re behaving. Hurray!

Hugs and prayers for our soldiers, families and our country.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Tears are good for the soul as well as some great music on you tube by Amy Grant and time in the word. The fever did break yesterday afternoon and I slept all night last night which was a first since I got sick. DH just got up. He's is doing great and I hope to be there soon.

Sun is shining brightly here today so that is sure a treat after a week of cooler temps and rain.

Too funny about the grapefruit, Barb. I have never eaten a grapefruit that way so probably would have ask about the "orange" too.

Sharon, hope you are having a great time in NC.

Take care, Team, know I love you and thanks for all of the emoticon

Tears are good for the soul and hopefully help wash away what ails you Sunny. Heck if it were me there would be enough to fill a pool with the year+ you have had. Hope yesterday was better (your fever breaking) for you two and today even better. That was a very nice gift from your son.

I was surprised that that libation only had Campari in it, my thought too was anything would be good in it and it isn't boozy so would be perfect for a party. Rum, especially a spiced one! Your Mom tickles me but you know that. Here's to a "sane" week Barb, you are going to be busy. Deep breaths.

How's your road trip going Sharon?

Speaking of citrus, the other day coming back from the grocery I decided to stop at the Dam for lunch. I had grapefruit and cheese slices. I'm sitting there peeling my grapefruit, gal walks by...that is a huge orange, where'd you get it? It's a grapefruit. Puzzled look on her face, she had never seen someone peel and eat it that way, much less with so much white stuff on it.

Rain moved in yesterday late, brief thunderstorm but nothing major, whew missed another one. The folks in and around New Orleans are back to finishing their Ark, so who knows what is headed our way.

Quiet day around here, will see you at 3...maybe for some healthy citrus with a splash of sumthin.

Yep, I am up, Barb. Not feeling very well, fever is back today and I didn't sleep well. DH is doing better so that is good.

Our Son brought me a bottle of Maker's Mark for my hot totties. Nice treat.

We will take the capes, heck we will take anything if we can just get off of this merry go round. I am really discouraged, so much so, tears just came yesterday. I hate feeling sorry for myself but I am just so down. Praying we can turn this around.

Thanks for all of your love and support. I do think the damp, cold, rain is not helping but yesterday we had lots of rain when the sun was shining so with it came some very lovely rainbows.

Take care and do have a blessed day.

Hugs, Sunny

Sunday – Miserable weather. Cold, rainy, damp and cool yesterday. Looks like more of the same today. BUT we did get out yesterday. It was nice. Mom and Dad really did need to get out.

Have to get ready for another busy week. But it will be done!

Oh went into an antique shop in town yesterday. Nice! Never knew it was there! Go figure.

And nope . . . no bail money needed yesterday, so didn’t get into too much trouble!

Blessings.

Sunny: going to have to borrow Superwoman’s cape for the both of you since bubblewrap isn’t doing the job!

Hope you’re feeling better – DH too.

Kelly: OOOhhhhhh. . . that sounds like a wonderfully refreshing libation! To quote Mom: “Well if it has citrus it’s healthy. Thay’s what we’re having today!” Alrighty then! LOLOL Going to use white rum, forego the simple syrup and sub in orange juice for the satsuma.

Sunny: You awake yet????

OH NO Sunny???? Geez, hope the hot toddies helped get you two better this morning. Maybe some bubble wrap with extra large bubbles will help you bounce back quick, like now.

Glad to see you made it to NC Sharon, hope the weather held for the wedding. Safe travels back home.

I have a boatload of change to add to the bail money...

We've got drizzles too and cooler temps. Absolutely nothing exciting going on.

Speaking of Cuties, they aren't cuties but meant to put this up for our Friday Klatch: I will definitely be fixing this when in Florida, since my daughter lives two towns over and you have to drive through it to get there:

Satsuma and Pomegranate Campari, and borrowed from Pintrest, I would forgo the simple syrup. Yield: 2 servings

4 parts satsuma, (fresh squeezed)
2 parts pomegranate juice, (fresh squeezed see head notes)
1 part simple syrup (recipe follows)
1 part Campari

Simple Syrup
1 part sugar
1 part water

Directions:

Fill a tall glass with ice. Pour Satsuma juice over ice; set aside. Add the pomegranate juice, simple syrup and Campari into a cocktail shaker and shake until combined. Pour over pomegranate and Campari mixture over Satsuma juice.
Simple Syrup
Place sugar and water in a pot and bring to a boil, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Cool before using.

A few notes:
I used fresh squeezed Satsuma juice, but if you can't find Satsumas in your area try using tangerine juice or orange juice. Tangerine juice can usually be found in a health food store when it's in season.
For the pomegranate juice I did the same, I juiced mine in a food processor then pushed it through a fine mesh sieve to dispose of the seeds. If pomegranates are not in season for your area, try using POM.
The simple syrup is not necessary, but if you are new to Campari it helps tone down the flavor. Alternately, add a 1/2 part white rum instead of the simple syrup.

Sunny: good for you staying wrapped up in the shawl and having a hot toddie! That's the way to do it.

Hmmm . . . as for the mischief . . . gotta check the bail money first, then go from there! LOL

Yes, serious, it is time to go back in the bubble.

Thanks Barb for the bushel of apples. They are needed! Sissy must have been thinking along that line too as she brought me a back of Cuties. Fruit is good.

Not a good night last night but a nap is in my plans. DS offered to pick us a bottle of Jack so we could make some hot totties. Bring on the Jack!

It is raining here too Barb. I am all wrapped up in my shawl and have turned the heat back on.

Do have a lovely day. Wondering about that mischief you and Kelly got into?

Hugs to you all, Sunny

Saturday – glad it’s the weekend. Had a good day w/the carer yesterday. That was a huge PHEW.

Supposed to rain today and tomorrow, so getting things done indoors. Can you believe it’s 60 in Fairbanks, Alaska. DS just texted me. What the heck??!!!

Sharon: 4 HOURS SLEEP! Glad you took a nap and arrived safely.

Sunny: Hope you and your DH are resting.

Kelly: Looks like it’s you and me today! What mischief can we get into?????

Hugs and prayers for our soldiers, families and our country.

See y'all @ 3 pm.

Seriously, both of us....ugh!

DH started getting sick last Saturday and we thought it was allergies as he had been out mowing. Sunday, the sneezing turned into a cough and by Monday, I was sneezing & coughing. The Health Dept. in Quincy is reporting record cases of Pneumonia right now as is the health department in Hannibal. Our DIL's Mother just got over it.

We have rested most of this day and I am off of here to go rest some more. Sis brought me a care package - some new magazines and a sack of Candy Orange Slices. Yea! Not on my diet but definitely lifted my spirits. She knows me all too well.

Take care and I will try to get by tomorrow. Needless to say, Pulmonary Rehab has been moved to May.

Hugs to all, Sunny

Sharon, bless your heart. Good think you were goal focused to get all of that done. Have fun at the wedding.

Barb, so glad Jason is back at work even though he is a little tired.

Hi Kelly! Hope all is well with you.

Yesterday, I woke up feeling a little better (maybe in my mind) but the day went downhill from there. Finally called the doc and went in late yesterday afternoon. Chest x-rays showed DH and I both to have pneumonia. Dang it! Not now!!!!! NOOOOOOO - not at all what I wanted. Ugh.

Medication and rest are on the agenda. Seems like there is a strain of pneumonia going around Quincy and we found. I am so glad I made DH (he hates going to the doc) go in. He is thankful now too.

Off to take a nap. Love you all and would appreciate some healing prayers.

Hugs, Sunny

Friday – yesterday was a gray, dark, gloomy day, but did have some chores to do and got them done.

Mom had a good day yesterday. However, made up for the good day w/a rotten night! Oh well. We’ll see how today goes. Her carer is here. So far it really has gone smoothly.


Otherwise, Jason survived day his return to work. Tired when he came home, but no problems.

Ok, it’s FRIDAY! Let’s go out there and do this day like we mean it!

Kelly: Yes we will create our own mischief. Let’s see . . . where shall we start? emoticon BWAHSAHAHAHA emoticon

Yes, Mom fell on 24 Feb. 2015, and they moved here 21 March 2015. With a cane, she’s pretty steady, but when out of the house, a walker for both of them.

Hope the weather cooperates for the marathon.

YUP! Definitely here @ 3 pm . . . if not before!

Hugs and prayers for our soldiers, families and our country.

Enjoy your trip and of course the wedding, as I said, we will create our own mischief without you! I hate that when best plans get waylaid, hope you were able to wind down last night and start fresh this morning.

Some dentists should not be doing non simple extractions; that policy led you all to a great dentist so it was a win, especially one who could help your friends Mom. I am amazed your friend is still standing, I am sure it is with your help.

Barb, it's been longer than a year hasn't it since your Mom fell?

Breezy overnight with some wet stuff but will get muggy later. Beyond Muggy for the marathon tomorrow, iffy on rain.

Safe travels, have one for us when you get there and will see you Barb and Sunny at 3.

Sharon: Travel safely. Glad that your DH's dental stuff was taken care of ! I love that about my dentist, too. He gave me his cell # so if there's any problem I can call.

Wise choice to forego the Friday Happy Hr. Another Friday will come along!

Hey All! Quick drive by tonight. Getting ready to go to wedding in NC for looong weekend. With DH emergency yesterday, it threw off my schedule BIG TIME so spent today litterally running from place to place to get my errands done. So much for my "planned relaxing day" before the trip! This dentist is good. He is the one who repaired all of the dental damage when my best friend's mom fell a year ago. It was a year ago this week, if you can believe that! the dentist we have been using "farms" all this kind of stuff out to an oral surgeon, and closes at 4 PM every day- works M-Th only. So there was no way to get in to see her, so we called the 2nd dentist and he said come on in. Waited for us, and then called last night just to make sure everything was going well, Told DH if he had any problems over the weekend to call his personal cellphone, and gave him the number. Plus, he did all the work in his own office.

Glad all is well at your house, Barb! I will not do a Happy Hour tomorrow. No time. Wiil post in my status on my page.

I'll be doing minimal stuff here until we return. Just enough to check all my boxes.

Hope you all have a great weekend, and I'll see you next week.m emoticon emoticon

Thursday – Post op check went well. Dental check – things are healing, but have to go back for a re-check next week. Mom had a good day w/the carer. That’s a good Wednesday. Hope today is as good.

Kelly: Oh yes – sarcasm runs deep on both sides of the family! LOL I wasn’t left out.

As for Vit. D – your best bet is Vit. D3. And yes, it is a fat soluble vitamin, meaning any excess is not excreted from the body, so you do need a blood level before taking a very large dose.

Oh lord, yes, the greenbacks are flying medically and dentally here. *SIGH**********

Gray and icky here today, but expecting rain later – not raining yet.

Sharon: Hope all is healthier in your house!

Sunny: Feeling better??

Hugs and prayers for our soldiers, families and our country.

See y’all @ 3.

I bet your brother had an eye opening experience, I hope he becomes more of a player. I'm still laughing that he was tired, more so how you put it…

When John had his done, my first reaction was well darn, now I really have to clean better. And keep the car cleaner too.

That is interesting about K2, it has never been suggested to me. Maybe because the first time my level was detected as low it was beyond stress related and a mega round took care of it. I take 2000 of D3, I always heard to be careful of consistently taking large doses of any vitaD may be harmful. So I'll be outdoors and depending upon the circumstances, bareskinned (and clothed) and concentrate on chow. Shame on those doctors that discourage being outdoors sans sunscreen for short times.

Yikes Sharon, how is hubby this morning? I misread it, thought it was today he was having it done. Our daughter had to have that done a few months ago, this dentist is a magician with problematic situations, so I hope all is well with him. Hate it when our greenbacks just take flight like that.

Glad to see you and hubs are up and around and getting better Sunny. I am convinced frustration takes it toll too.

We escaped the weather bullet again yesterday, a brief thunderstorm with a downpour and that was that but man did it get hot and muggy first. Another high temp day today (upper 80's, yikes) With those temps, I'll be inside at 3 I think.

Hugs everyone!

Wednesday – fast track. Jason had his surgery yesterday and all went well. PHEW. We are out the door for his post op check up the I have a dental appointment. **SIGH**

Very happy that the surgery went as planned yesterday. Hallelujah!

And my brother did come to help w/Mom. Hmmmm . . . has a little different perspective on what the day-to-day operations are here in this house, and then throw in a few surgeries. OH REALLY NOW! YOU'RE TIRED???? HA

Kelly: Yup. I felt that same way, too. Things are just (and were) so much sharper and clearer than pre-op.

Sharon: Glad the upped Vit. D. is helping! Dr. Mercola is a great information source.

OMG! Your DH should be living in THIS house with his dental problems. Wishing him much luck. It is no fun.

Morning!
Glad to hear all went well for Jason, Barb. Good luck with mom's carer today. Sorry to hear about the hail storm but glad your property didn't sustain any damages. We had hail about a month ago about the same size.


Sunny, I have upped my Vitamin D to 5,000 units twice a week for a couple of weeks. Next week, I'm dropping down to 5,000 once a day. Seems to be helping me.

"As a general guideline, research by GrassrootsHealth suggests that adults need about 8,000 IUs per day to achieve a serum level of 40 ng/ml. If you do opt for a vitamin D supplement, please remember that you also need to boost your intake of vitamin K2 through food and/or a supplement. If you're getting your vitamin D from the sun, this is not as critical, although you'd be wise to make sure you're getting sufficient amounts of vitamin K2 from your diet either way. "
articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/
ar
chive/2014/05/28/vitamin-d-deficiencR>y-signs-symptoms.aspx


I am also going to try to sit in the sun for about 15 minutes when it is sunny out, and that is the best way because it's natural Vitamin D.

Well, DH had a crown fall of yesterday. Went to dentist to see if he could repair. Nope. Will take him later on today for extraction, and temprary, then in a few weeks for bridge and rest of work. Sheesh! I told DH he was in the wrong profession!

See you guys later!

High Five to Jason, amazing their reactions when they realize what they can see isn't it?

What storm there was went north of us, not sure what is coming down the pike. Got really hot and humid this afternoon. Those hail storms are something else, glad there is no damage.

Good night, sleep tight!

Yes, we do have an auto garage door opener, but we have to juggle cars so was not able to pull right into the garage. So he waited it out.

I have been taking 400 IU's a day. Ugh, maybe not enough I would say.

Glad Jason is doing so well. I take you are home now.

So glad to hear there was no damage. I could not get out of the car to get the garage door open (no automatic door opener at the time) so all I could do was just wait it out.

We have had thunderstorms today but nothing severe. Mr. Weatherman says we might very well have severe weather tomorrow. I sure hope he is wrong.

Really depends on your Vit. D level as to how much you take, but I routinely take 4,000 International Units. When my level was REALLY low during the winter, had to take 4,000/day and once/week, 10,000. It helped.

So sorry to hear that your poor DH is back in bed. **SIGH** HOpe the two of you get better quick!

Home and Jason did very well w/the surgery. The surgery ended @ 11 am and by 2 pm he said he could see his vision in that eye was sharper and clearer. Hallelujah!

OMG, the hail was astounding. Thank goodness we did not have damage, but further north of us the hail was golf ball sized and windshields were cracked and vehicles dented. OMG.

Sharon - how much D3 do you take? I will certainly up the dose if it will help.

I am actually feeling a little better but DH is back in bed. Bless his heart - he is miserable.

Barb, praying for Jason, that all will go well with his surgery today. I will be looking for an update.

Hail damage to the vehicle? Yikes. That happened to me one time when we lived in Kansas and it totaled out our vehicle which was only 3 weeks old. I was so frightened the hail was going to break the windshield but it didn't, thank goodness.

We are have thunderstorms with straight line lightening so turned off the TV for a while.

Kelly, stay safe though these storms. I will be thinking of you.

Hugs, Sunny

Thanks, Kelly and Sharon!

Tuesday – off to the hospital for Jason’s surgery. Don’t know when we’ll be home, but I’ll update then. I’m sure he’ll be fine but it’s still nerve-wracking.

OMG! What a tumultuous weather afternoon yesterday! It was gray, overcast, cloudy all day. I knew we were anticipating rain and had hoped Jason would get home before that. He had to travel to Chicago. Well, he pulled into the drive @ 5 pm and the heavens literally opened up w/rain – deluging rain! – and pounding hail – some the size of a nickel, others a dime. OMG. This went on for 20 minutes. Jason couldn’t get out of the car as he would have gotten pummeled w/hail (and soaked, too, needless to say). Then it stopped. Just like that. So there you have it. Mother Nature NOT at her finest.




Love is the root of all things good in life.

Sending great vibes to Jason Barb, tell him I know from others that all will be fine but if it were me I'd be on the nervous side - it's just my nature. Actually hubs Doc used to tease me he has something special for me if he ever has to "treat" me and it isn't a basic lollipop. Ha

Well lucky you Sunny, I was straightening my sailor hat to go looking for you! I am sad that you two are battling this crud still. (Shades of my bronchitis two years ago, after a couple of months, gave in to a mega steroid round with boost of vitaD3, magnesium and something else that was depleted - again - and my favorite rose honey) I hope you were able to venture out last night.

We are in for rough weather too. Man, the weather lately has been just wonderful and the breezes helped tolerate the 80 temps. I know, April and 80's. I thought of you Sunny over the week end, watching the Champions golf out of Missouri, what a beautiful landscape and reminder that all of Missouri is not flatland.

Did your garage door dry yet Sharon?

Okay, will see you all on the front porch at 3!

Sunny are you taking a good antibiotic to help boost your immune system? Sounds like you adrenals may be drained as well. . . I have upped my D3 for awhile and I think that has made a difference too!

Barb, thinking of you and Jason . . . emoticon Hope all goes well tomorrow and Wednesday.

((()HUGS)))) to you all!

Sunny: Yes, he has a cataract removal tomorrow on one eye. I know he'll be all right.

Hope you and Rich feel better. Colds are miserable at best, but you've been dealing with one type of crud or another it seems forever!

Just stopping by to say Hi.

Saw where Jason is having his surgery this week and post op on Wednesday. I don't know how you do it all, Barb. I am in total awe.

Sharon, you are not alone on the ice cream. It is my nemesis too. That and cookies - then color me happy!!

Rich has a cold as well as me. ugh. Also fighting seasonal allergies. We are a mess. I am planning on going to Bible Study tonight. We will see how I feel as the day progresses. Poor Rich is back in bed. I slept most of yesterday afternoon also. We are so done with being sick.

Kelly, how are things going with you? I hope fine. We are in for some rough weather this week here in the Midwest. Praying we all are safe from the storms.

Take care and Hugs, Sunny

Monday – cool and gray, a little drizzle, but then the sun did come out for a little while.

Mom had a so-so day. Very confused, but in a positive mood.

Carer here this morning. Mom is ready! That’s a good sign.

Sharon: OH boy, yes, ice cream is a nemesis here, too. BUT fortunately the flavors hat Dad stocks are not tempting to me. PHEW.

Kelly: OH I know it’ll be fine for Jason. Went thru it myself, (though Jas doesn’t believe it’s a piece of cake, I know it will be).

Ah yes, the things we do for those we love!


Hugs and prayers for our soldiers, families and our country.

See y'all @ 3 pm!

Barb, well I tried to give you some time off! Here's to a quick and easy fix for Jason. John's Mom had hers done last year and it was even easier than when John had his done. it was hurry up over there and sit and wait, and wait and wait. I'm sure I told you all he wanted to go on into work after that. Then the second one if Doc had been any further behind it would have had to be rescheduled because a tropical storm decided to rear it's ugly head out of the Gulf, moving in fast and they were shutting down all elective surgeries. It was a wise decision because it was very similar to what Houston just went through. Except this one decided as it headed for Dallas to turn around and give Houston a second dose. So the followup had to wait a day.

The cake for breakfast had been a routine in our house for years, and John revised it when he was ill and I did not hesitate. He loved Sara Lee's chocolate pound cake with whipped cream and to follow Barb's Mom: "don't be stingy". That and a local diary's chocolate milk (not a lot of sugar), double chocolate muffin from the coffee shop at the Doctors office. Behave yourself, we will stop. But that wasn't enough, then we had to run over to Dunkin for chocolate munchkin holes. That was until they were out one morning, really in the morning, we'll wait for you make more. We don't make them here, they come in frozen. Wait! What!!!! He stammers, wheels himself out, never to return. As we are leaving the manager is reeming the kid out, guess he told the truth and wasn't supposed to. So, ladies he was the winner of the chocoholics. I can feel the pounds coming on just talking about it. Discipline would have been getting the kiddie scoop. Their scoop is pretty big and pricey, it also comes from a local diary.

Considering most paints now are in the +$30 range, Valspar may be a bargain. Certainly hope so, nothing worse than putting that much effort for a fail. We'll be positive it is a winner! I can imagine how hot that front door must have gotten, use a pot holder to open it.

Okay, will see you all on the front porch at 3!

Kelly

Hope the mouth rinse helps you both out, too.

Garage door is same ol', same ol' white. Eventually we'll spring for a vinyl one. This will probably be the last time we paint this one, but some of the paint was chipped off. We tried a new paint from Lowe's that I read about; Valspar Duramax. It was almost $50 for a gallon, but many reviewers said that it held up in the hot, hot sun, and hurricane conditions in FL. So we thought we'd try it because the front of our house and garage door gets the full brunt of the afternoon sun. So if it hold up, it will be worth it! Our first front door was steel, and it would get so hot in the summer, the paint would peel right off it. Had to paint that every year until we replaced it with fiberglass.

Kelly, I have a hard time resisting ice cream too. That is my major Achilles heel. I love the stuff! You did great. I would have double scooped it in a cup. Done that once in awhile for lunch. Hey it's got calcium in it, right?! Calcium keeps our bones and teeth healthy. . . Same thing as Cosby's chocolate cake for breakfast in my humble opinion!

Nighty night all! emoticon

Kelly: Nope . . . no down time this week. Jason has his surgery on Tuesday and post op check on Wednesday.

well, every once in awhile you have to go for the ice cream. Bet you enjoyed it and you stuck w/one scoop, no cone. GOOD JOB!

Sharon at least it happened closer to home, doesn't it seem like it's always something else when you take it in? You are all set now to celebrate a wedding. It's one thing to have a busy day but to have to rush through it. What color are you doing the garage door? Yes, I have started using that stuff we will see how it works out.

Happy to hear your mouth is doing better. Is this a down time week for you, can't keep up.

Having some seltzer, just came back from an ice cream run - oh I know I knew better but the devil made me du it. Favorite shoppe is open for the season, since I had a late lunch I only had one scoop, no sugar cone. Other than that, a quiet bright sunny day...hope all is well with all of you! Hugs

I ordered some Clo-Sys from Amazon. Hoping that will help! Used to love Whole Foods when we lived in IL. But none close-by now. **SIGH**

Sorry to be MIA yesterday, but it was one HECTIC day. Planned for it to be realizing, but didn't go that way. Dropped off car at dealer for oil change service. Service engine light was on, but assumed it was for past due oil change. Nah, leaky value in emissions system, and so they gave me loaner, but I refused the compact car Went to hair app't and then back to dealer to get larger loaner they held for me. Came home and they called a little over 90 minutes later to say if I could get there by 5 I could pick up my car. So rushed over there, and got home just before 6. Full day! $650+ repair bill, too! Oh well, going to wedding next weekend so good that everything's in working order.

Sorry to hear about your dental problem barb. Hope your mouth is feeling better. I highly recommend the mouthwash my dentist recommended, or Spry Mouthwash. They both help keep your mouth and teeth free of bio-mass build up and plaque. DH has been using since his tooth extraction about 6 months ago and all seems fine. I got good report on very little plaque build up my last visit about a month ago. Spry is available at Whole Foods or Amazon and the Clo-Sys is available at Walgreens, CVS, or Amazon. Amazon is cheapest for the Clo-sys. Have you started the Clo-sys yet Kelly?

DH is out painting garage door again - 2nd coat. I am going to get bruch going here in a few. . .

Enjoy your day all! I'll be back later tonight.

Kelly: Yes, if it is MY mouth, the chances are about 99.9% that a problem will occur. But my mouth does feel a little better today, fortunately. Just have to be patient, I guess

Sunday – well it was a little cool yesterday, but sunny in the afternoon. I’ll take it.

Mom had a pretty good day. Again, I’ll take it!

See you guys at 3 !

Hugs and prayers for our soldiers, families and our country.

Hope your mouth is all better Barb and I am sorry, I knew there was something I wanted to ask you and didn't. Geez, it seems when they work on something to make it better somehow it goes haywire shortly after - at least it does around here.

It was another really nice day yesterday here too. Chilly, windy and cloudy in the morning which was fine because we worked an outdoor event and we were comfortable. Other than that, quiet day. Nothing on the agenda today either. Wonder what can I get into?

Well everyone - have a great Sunday and will see youse all at 3!

Hugs and Prayers all around.

Friday - Looks like we’re going to make it!

Mom’s carer is here this morning, so we’ll hopefully have a good experience again!

Make it a good Friday!

Update: DANG! Have to go to the dentist . . . had a problem last night. GRRRRRrr! The Dr. put me on an antibiotic and I have to go for a re-check on Wednesday – after I get Jason to HIS post op check up. AAAHHHHH!!! SERIOUSLY! This has got to stop!

Kelly: My condolences being on MY schedule! LOL

Got my RED on too. Lord knows. Considered an herbal tea for 3 pm, but NO NO NO NO NO. Mom wants coffe w/kahlua, and I am going to join her in that!

Sharon: BWAHAHAHAH! Definitely a W.I.N.O.S. candidate today! LOLOL

Sunny: Got an APB out for ya!

See y'all @ 3 pm

Hugs and prayers for our soldiers, families and our country.
