I was surprised by how little people were along the parade route this year. Usually the beginning of our Main Street is covered, but it wasn't.

Yes, I'm sure yours is bigger. Greenfield and Shelburne Falls have bigger ones too. Remember though my father lives in a town of about 2000 people. It's amazing that they even HAVE a parade.

Our parade includes just about every town activity you can think of - Tae Kwon Do, Scouts, baseball, St. Patrick's Colleen, Relay, Lions Club, Knights of Columbus, and others as well as every town official and all their vehicles.

I watched my father and uncles march and visited with family members at the parade site. Then I went to a local library to update my GPS with their free wi-fi. I didn't get many steps in but at least I got out of the house.

When I got home Abby had a bloody nose and my husband had a bad case of cabin fever. So I settled in and he went out for a few hours.

My father's parade is pretty small. It's just the veterans, the Boy Scouts or Cub Scouts and the Shelburne Falls Military Marching Band and a police escort.

I marched in the Memorial Day parade for Relay For Life today. It's just past noon and I already have over 8,000 steps. That is great and a great way to get out and thank the community.

My husband put together the new mower and showed me how it works. I mowed the yard but I didn't weedwhack. Later I got out for a walk. I also cleaned some but not enough..

Sorry to hear that!

I was hoping to get some cleaning done, but I am not motivated to do so. I slept in and am watching a movie now. It is not every day that I do nothing.

Abby's still sick and it's messing with our weekend plans. We did take her out Saturday to Ingleside Mall for a few hours but I think she is staying home today (Sunday).

Sorry about the headache and sickness. I hope it gets better with the new glasses. It is always hard to adjust to them. A few years ago I got wire frames. The ear piece was digging into my ear so badly. They adjusted them many times and finally I just had to order new plastic frames. Much better!

Hopefully Abby will feel better so you can enjoy the weekend.

I am blaming the new glasses on the headache and vomiting. So I am back to my old ones.

Today I'm going into work very briefly to turn in my time sheet and check email. Then I'm going to hit the grocery store and come home so my husband can go to work. He goes in later than I do anyway so I'm going to do my stuff early and then get back to the house and stay home with Abby. Her temp was 99.8 when she went to bed last night. No school for her today.

Abby was running a slight fever when I picked her up from school yesterday. We did our stuff anyway. Checked her temp at home and it was 99 degrees. She had that fever cough that kids get. :(

Today is the last day of PARCC testing. Gave her medicine and sent her to school with a note saying dad would pick her up at 11:30am (PARCC testing was morning only).

Meanwhile I woke up with a splitting headache. Decided to go to work anyway because I have a task force meeting this afternoon. Ended up vomiting while driving. Turned around and came home and went back to bed. UGH. I guess I could have changed my clothes and tried again but I have my limits.

We are marching in the parade on Monday. It should be fun.

I really need to focus on cleaning my house some. Relay has taken over two rooms and it is getting to me.

We have a plan to clean house on Saturday. Will see how that goes. I just saw that there is a fair in Amherst so I will probably take Abby to that on Friday. On Monday I will be going up to my dad's place bright and early to watch him march in an 8am parade. I'll probably leave Abby and my husband home.

Other than that I have no idea.

Still tired. I also did something to my leg yesterday and I am feeling that. Hopefully it will get better. Sitting is difficult.

Plans for the long weekend? I know we are marching in the parade.

I am definitely feeling the effects of Relay today. My body is sore and I am tired. I am so thankful we moved it from Saturday-Sunday to Friday-Saturday. It will take me a day to adjust.

I was raised Catholic, but converted to Lutheran years ago. I do not practice any religion now, although that doesn't make me have less faith.

I don't really visit my dad. He is the one that usually visits. And we figured it would just be a year or two until the house was ready for sale. Then we would figure it out. By then my dad would be eligible legitimately for housing and I wouldn't have to worry. It's not a worry now I guess.

I just found out my neighbor passed away from cancer. She had been doing well, and then not the last couple of months. It makes me sad. She was a nice lady.

Well I think it would have been difficult for you to visit your dad if he was living with your ex-husband, you know... 5 years down the road or whatever.

I didn't realize you were Catholic until now.

He wouldn't have been moving in with me. My husband would stay there with him. They actually get along very well and would live well together. My dad's health isn't the best these days and we all would prefer he have someone around that isn't one of his "broads". Oh well. I am sure he will be okay in his new place wherever it is.

Yes, then I get the chance to make life more mine. Unfortunately I think I will be staying in the house for a while with him. We cannot afford to sell it yet as we have some work to do still, and it would be foolish of me to leave the house and pay rent yet still have to pay towards the mortgage. We'll see what happens.

My dad was considering moving in, but decided to go to elderly housing. I don't have an issue with that, except he lied and told them he had no where to go. He actually had many options but prefers his privacy incase he "picks up a broad and wants to be alone" (his words not mine). He knows I am not pleased that he lied to the housing people. I suggested he go to church and confess.

Whoohoo for Relay!

Then you can "get on with things" right?

I wasn't too upset to be in the grocery store yesterday. It was so hot. My kitchen was 84 degrees when I came home at 6:30pm. UGH.

This morning I am off to the eye doctor for an overdue appointment. Then to work then Abby and groceries etc.. going to have to use the credit card for groceries again. Was hoping to get them yesterday after OSV when my husband was with us so we could use his debit card but we were all too hot and tired to deal with it then.

It was very hot at OSV. We all got dehydrated and grumpy for while. We skipped the farm and the mills and a lot of other stuff gravitating toward the shade. We did do the boat ride. First weekend this year that it has been open.

We are going to Old Sturbridge village. We have a brunch reservation for 3:30pm. I thought my husband was going to plan something but he didn't so when I finally called it was all I could get. I plan to check in earlier and see if there have been any cancellations. Maybe we can get in earlier. It's not what I want though. He's the one who wants brunch. I want the living room cleaned, my car washed, and other stuff like that. I won't get it though.

Sorry to hear Abby is having a rough week. Hopefully it will get better for Mother's Day. Plans?

I have 3 meals to attend. My niece is having breakfast, my friend invited me for lunch, and my kids are taking me to dinner. It should be a good day. I am not overly fond of Mother's Day as it reminds me that my mom is no longer with us physically and I would give just about anything for that.

Hoping for a weekend in Maine in June when school ends and planning for a trip to FL in August to see my mom and mother-in-law. Trying not to overplan at this point. Abby has a lot going on this month and it's been a rough week.

I tried to talk to her about summer camp stuff last night and it just went to a dead end. :-(

Any plans for the summer? I know I plan to take a trip overnight to the beach with friends. I also need to move more on getting ready to move out. It is a tedious task for sure.

The select board was scheduled to meet last night. I expect to hear today when the voting will be.

Summer school stuff seems to be ramping up. Our summer school staff is moving this weekend which is good for her but sad for us. Instead of being in the center of town she will have a long commute. Anyway I had an email and a conversation with her in the hallway. Abby will be doing 8am-9am for the summer program. She will probably have a substitute for one week. I think that's what happened last year. Like you it's just during 4 weeks in July so there will be 2 camp weeks before and 2 camp weeks after and then we'll have our family time.

I hope you get help with your internet! I know you have problems during bad weather.

It will be a long day today. I am tired after having worked last night. I have a meeting at central office for the summer program after work. Then I have to prep for my last Relay meeting tomorrow night. Lots to do. So little energy. I doubt I will get my nightly park walk in. That's unfortunate, but maybe I will get to work at a decent time tonight.

I am glad they approved items. I know it is hard to raise taxes, especially for people who do not have children in the schools anymore, but improvements and repairs have to be made eventually.

I said candidates but I should have said residents. There was a woman who was not in office that questioned a few things that I thought she should have left alone. I know how bad our roads are and if the fire department needs an SUV for the chief then I understand that.

Anyway one thing that got passed was rubber flooring for the school hallways because the floors in the school now are buckling from the moisture in the courtyard. I've witnessed this myself and nearly tripped and fallen in the hall so I was glad to see that passed. I also heard and approved moving small amounts of money around so that the school roof can be replaced in a few years. After finding roofing shingles on the ground outside I know the school roof is in bad shape. Again, glad to see that this is a problem that is known and is being taken care of not as an emergency but as a normal course of business.

Our mayor prides himself not raising taxes overt several years. Yet our schools are some of the lowest paid employees, our buildings are overcrowded, and wet have very little business growth.

We had our town meeting yesterday. We stayed longer than we have before but left around noon. I told my husband that I'd like to stay for the whole thing next year. I really liked hearing some of the details of town business. Was also interesting to see which candidates would oppose just about anything and everything.

Our WiredWest vote passed overwhelmingly but not unanimously. We still have to do a ballot vote because it is a 2 1/2 override.

I hope she finds someone she likes to help her. When my mother-in-law was hurt, it took a while to find someone she would like. She she is home!

I have my Relay fundraiser today. I need to get my stuff together and head out soon.

Yes she is home now. Said the lady she shared a room with was so depressed and was getting worse instead of better. She still needs someone to help clean her apartment so she is working on that but at least she is home with her cats now.

Hopefully your mom's clicking red shoes will work and she'll get to go home. She's got to be feeling better it sounds as well.

Well the word is that she will be able to go home on Friday.

She has a roommate in the rehab who always has the tv on, and it seems loud. I can hear it when I talk to my mom on the phone. She spends as much time as possible out of the room. I am guessing that at 65 my mom is one of the young ones in this place so the other person is probably older and maybe hard of hearing.

So I think really it's a matter of privacy and space. Luckily the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight.

Is she typically an active person? If so, being stuck in the rehab would be a problem. I know for my dad he loves to be active. When he was in the hospital, he would pace and ask repeatedly when he was being released.

Always something going on in our house.

I find out tonight if my mom is getting out of physical rehab this week or if she's going to be stuck for another week. I do think they will send her home by the 7th but she is going crazy (okay getting crazier) being stuck in this place.

He did it a couple of weeks ago. He tripped in the yard and landed on a rock. Something shifted on Friday though and he was suddenly in more pain. He's not getting much sleep at this point because it hurts for him to lie down.

Managed to get her birthday thank you notes done and mailed at least.

Spent 2 hours at UMass Amherst Urgent Care on Sunday. Insisted that my husband get seen for his broken rib. Then when we went to CVS to pick up the prescription they closed before we got there. :-(

Ugh.. and yes back to school today and all the crazy that comes with the last 7 or 8 weeks.

Sometimes it is good to have a down day I guess.

Baby shower today. I have to pick up my sister-in-law on the way. Then I have some work to do. Back to work tomorrow.

We got the free Lego set but it was "Legends of Chima" which is all they had left, and that isn't a series we care much about.

Abby spent all of Saturday on the couch, literally. I told her last night she's going to pay for that today because now the stuff that didn't get done has to get done all in one day.

I went out for a very short walk and I went to North Amherst to get take-out for lunch just so I could at least be outside for a few minutes. It killed me that we wasted such a beautiful day.

Not only did I not have to pay, they sent me away with an apology and a coupon for a free oil change. The O2 sensor had failed and apparently broken, but they didn't have it in stock when I called and went back last week. Thankfully it seems all set now.

Did you get the free Lego kit they gave away at Yankee?

I have a baby shower to go to tomorrow. It should be fun. It is for my nephew and his wife. They live past Rochester so we don't see them as much. My nephew used to live with us for a while. Of course I gave books as the gift. I got several signed and made a nice basket with some receiving blankets and a memory book they had requested on their registry. Hopefully they will love the book choices. Some of my favorites.

Did you end up having to pay?

That truck is beginning to sound like a lemon. What dealership are you dealing with?

Abby and I went to Yankee where I spent about $100 and then to Target and then home. Back out again later to meet my husband at McDs for supper. He had to go back to work afterwards and didn't get home until around midnight. Abby stayed up and waited for him.

Needless to say it's been a quiet Saturday morning since everyone was up until around 1am.

It was a busy week for me but is be happy with another week off. I am back sitting waiting at the dealer. They suggested I would have to pay the deductible again. That's not happening! This service has been ongoing and I refuse to pay out again. Keep your fingers crossed.

Hope the check engine light was nothing serious.

This week is really flying by. I'm working today and then I have Abby tonight and tomorrow. My husband has to work Friday night as well so after I leave work today I will really be in Mommy mode until Monday. On Friday we're going back to Yankee Candle and then maybe to the Carle or maybe not. Not sure. I think we'll be done at Yankee by lunchtime and I don't know what else we'll be doing.

I was with friends but got to spend some quiet time. It was lovely.

Back at the dealership today because my check engine light is on again. This is frustrating! They've asked me to wait, but I dont want to wait long. Sitting in a waiting room is so not the same as sitting on the beach.

Sounds like you went to the beach in Rhode Island by yourself. You didn't mention the hotel. How was it? Was the peace good for you? Or was it too much quiet? I think for me it would be too much quiet. I like being alone but after a few hours .... I need my family back.

In any event I know you've got a busy week for the rest of it so I hope the rest was good for you.

Many of my parents stay home or get respite money. About half the kids don't show up either for summer school. That's a pain.

I imagine it must be harder for your students families to find summer camps than it is for us. They must have to hire babysitters/nannies for the kids if the parents work.

Abby's IEP only specifies 1 hour/day of summer school. We are hoping to schedule it as early as possible, maybe 8am-9am. In the past she has only done 30 minutes but it will be increased this year so that she can do reading/writing and math. She hasn't had to do math in the summer before.
