Men! LOL----they don't listen! My dh seems to think if we only have one gallon in the fridge that we will run out very shortly---now, if we still had kids, that would be an issue but not with just the 2 of us.
Safe travels, hope everything fits in the car and that they baby travels well. Have a good time!

Daughter had some good news-that because they were cutting hours she would get a raise to make up for it. Hope that comes through soon.

I think, I hope, I have everything ready for loading the car tomorrow and hope we can fit everything in!! Our bags will go in the front seat since I will be sitting in back with the baby. Her stuff can go on the floor under her car seat where I can reach it. I'm waiting for the washing machine to get done so I can get everything into the dryer before bed. The dishes are done. I still need to dump out the rest of the milk and will have daughter take home the other gallon my husband bought after I told him I had been to the store already. emoticon

Lindsey, make that your motivation to get back to the pool!
Kerry, oops, not good at all---hope she either starts looking for a new job or gets her hours back.
Good workout in the pool last night---needed it after helping a bit with the project---it is all finished and pictures on my page. Really pleased with how it looks and amazed that dh got it done so quickly---I really expected it to take a couple of weeks---he really only worked on it for 3 days.
More rain and storms today---looks like clearing at the moment, then more later. Have a good Thursday

I'm really missing my pool time, too, but it has nothing to do with health issues rather it's due to us getting ready for vacation while also babysitting and making sure our daughter gets to work on time. Hopefully by the time we get back she will still have the job or a new one. I guess she complained about something at today's meeting so they cut her hours. She's one of those who thinks she is always right which doesn't work well at work. I will be glad to get out of town for a while.

Bad news is that I'm still not swimming. Good news is that I got a new swim suit.

DD had a teacher who used to say, "Don't ever say you 'can't'; say instead 'physically unable to do at this time.'" I'm going with that.

We did buy a few smaller bricks and will see what happens as we go---at least he kind of knows how to break the half brick if we need to---LOL--Lowe's gets money back from the manufacturer so would not give them up or discount them---bummer---Walmart would---LOL
Traveling with a baby is pretty intense for items needed--I remember our first trip to Disney with a 7 month old---had to take lots of jars of food and a portable crib and stroller---although we did use the Disney strollers while there, but it was nice around the hotel to have our own, plus a backpack to put him in at times, --thankfully we had a van to travel in---it was quite packed! I don't know how people travel by plane with an infant!
Hope you can get to the pool today--I am looking forward to my visit tonight.
We had quite the thunderstorm come thru last night---and some nice rain for my plants.

No water again today. Busy with grandkids and getting ready for vacation. It's been a long time since I traveled with a baby. I found a few things for me and formula, diapers, etc, for Aaliiyah. I'm sure her mom will pack 10x what she needs and what we have rom for since we're travelling in a Honda Fit. It's about bedtime since we have to head out just after 8 so Trish can use my car for her work meeting.

I hope you can find the bricks you need without a lot of expense.
Aaliyah's dad just started a second (part-time) job to help pay bills so they can get a new a/c unit and a second car.
I'm trying to get things together for the trip and Larry gets a phone call from the bank that his debit card has been compromised. Apparently someone at Walmart in Texas has been using different numbers to buy stuff as ours isn't the only one it happened to on the same day. This happened last year at this time, too. They cancelled his card and will have to send a new one to his brother's house in Colorado so we can pick it up then. I keep trying to tell him it's better to put everything on the credit card but he's gotten into the habit of using the debit for even the smallest of payments. such a pain!

You should ask Aaliyah's dad to help---after all you do for them, they should be pleased to do a little something for you---honestly, I think that is why Andy doesn't do much for us---his gf always bitches about him doing stuff---not like we don't watch Reagann enough for them---and with them moving and it being further to drive, it has been a bit of an issue with gas for dh's truck costing me more--and now that we take her home, too--a bigger issue---but we are doing that to save our gd from the wrath of her mom when she is tired from a long day at work.
Maybe the next time she complains about it, you should have a Bible verse to say to her about it---sounds like she needs it! After all, the leaders of the church decided how much they would pay and it is not for her to question ---if she doesn't like it, she needs to go to them.
We had a nice time with the boys and my mom yesterday---dh also got more done on the project and it looks great--now the complicated area---I think we will need some more half bricks---and I hope we can find out if Lowe's has any broken bricks---he inadvertently broke a half block yesterday but it fit nicely in an odd spot we had.
Hot weather has returned so the ac is now on again---I did enjoy last week with the cooler temps. Looking forward to the pool tonight.

The only kids we've seen today is our grandson who came to church with us. He's supposed to come back over this evening and spend the night.

Our daughter did come pick Aaliyah up last night about 11:30 and then I was off to bed. Aaliyah gave her daddy a nice gift today by crawling across the room to him then giving him some raspberries. lol I asked where the video was but it was the one time she didn't take any.

I am so glad to be done with counting for at least a month. Today went well except Elaine kept complaining about the check from the school and how it was marked. The school rents our education building year round and has been a great help getting our mortgage nearly paid off but she has never liked the owner and keeps saying he's trying to rip us off, etc. It gets old FAST.

I'm glad your son helped. I wish I had one who could help move things like that headboard. It is built like a cabinet with storage under a shelf for books or toys. Every time I ask my son in law Sarah gets mad even if I mention doing something and he offers to help so...not much help there.

Well, dinner is done, grandson is back so I guess it's time to finish up my sparking. Have a great evening.

Lol, so did you get the headboard/bookshelf moved? From what you say about your friend, no wonder he wants you there--LOL I don't blame you, I would not want to be going to pick her up that late either. Did you keep the baby overnight or did she come by and get her?. How will she manage the work issue when you are gone or will you be leaving your car for her to use? Nice that you got to see your oldest.
Actually, I got to see my oldest yesterday--I called to see if he would come help with the project for a couple of hours---we got a great start but he was getting snippy by the end of 2 hours and I knew it was time to quit---we got 4 long runs and the start of another. Then later dh went back out and at his own pace, he finished off that run and another. Think we have finished the long runs now---now all the confusing areas come into play---so dh can lay a few a day and then decide what we need for the problem areas.
Hope you have a nice Father's day and that your dh gets to see some of the kids.

Yesterday I let Trish take my car so I didn't have to pick her up from work at 11:15 p.m. This morning Larry went to church for the Men's breakfast and meeting. He makes the breakfast casseroles the guys love. Guess he was told by the finance chair that I need to go to the finance meetings even if the pastor doesn't think I belong there. He seems to think I'm more sane than the financial secretary who is our lead counter. lol I didn't feel like going Monday and next month I won't be in town so he'll have to do without me for a while.

Our oldest daughter came to town from Niceville, FL, where she lives and after getting her sister to cut her hair we all had lunch before she took Cheyenne, our oldest granddaughter, back to Niceville with her. I know the kid is going to be bored out of her mind but she will be good company for Dawn when they head up to Nebraska and on to Colorado next week.

I have my car back now as after lunch I took Trish to her house and she is going to drive her own car to work and will pick Aaliyah up when she gets off. The clouds were becoming extremely dark while I drove home so am praying none of that is heading west and the kids have a safe drive.

Maybe just a little note to the sons that you managed to get all the materials for the project but it may take a while to finish and someone will show up to help?? It's worth a shot, right? Yea for getting the guest room done. I need to do that, too, but our guests seem to always be messy teenagers. I don't do a lot of cleaning in the laundry room since it's just a space in the garage close to all my Christmas decorations and whatever else gets put there. Now that I mention it, moving out the headboard/bookshelf and some bed frames would clear that area up a lot. hmm....

Why no car?
We went to Lowe's 2x yesterday to get the rest of the bricks for the big project outside---hope to start it this morning--might take us a week or more to finish as I don't want dh to work on it too long at a time to save his back---although I would love for the sons to do some of it tomorrow but won't ask, but will take their help if the offer--LOL I was so tired from unloading the stuff that I was asleep on the couch shortly after 8 yesterday. Plus I got the spare room finished---all I would need to do for a guest is dust again before they arrive---nice to have one room done. I think the next room will be the laundry area although I might start on the kitchen as I bought some extra food that was on sale yesterday and need to put it away so I might just do the bottom cabinet today, clean it out, and get it organized. Might be all I want to do if we work on the outside project this morning.
Have a good Saturday

We didn't get any rain today-just a lot of heat. The pool would have been nice but I had to take GS to counseling. If I had know I would just be sitting and waiting I would have let Larry take him and gone to the pool. I did get to the class last night, though. I won't make tomorrow because of not having a car. We had lunch today with all 3 of the grandkids plus Trish and that's been about it.

Hope the storms passed thru. We had some storms here yesterday morning and some good downpours---we needed the rain. Looks like more of the same today---at least I don't have to water the plants right now.
Nothing planned exciting today---hope to finish the spare room today.

That sounds like fun! Right now I could go outside and be a water baby!! I'm hoping the storm rolls through before 6 so I can get to class. I don't mind the rain but the I do the thunder and lightning.

I took Trish to work at 10 and Larry is off to pick her up and take her and Aaliyah home. That's been the exciting day I've had. I did the get highchair put together-Aaliyah seemed to like it.

My grandmother used Oil of Olay and she had beautiful skin---I should try that.
All of our water class went out for dinner last night along with a couple more spouses---my dh is part of the group normally since he does work out when we are---we had a nice time together out of the pool, too.
Hope you get to the pool today!

Yes, she picked Aaliyah up about 3. I was out and about visiting with a new church member who sells Mary Kay. I used it a long time ago but quit wearing much make up in Florida. I decided it might be time to start taking better care of my skin. We'll see how that goes.

I still haven't made it to the pool this week. I will have to get to the evening class tomorrow and then Friday morning.

Oh, my, does that mean she gets off earlier? You will need a nap today, too.
Yes, finally on my summer break--and it looks like rain but they are saying PM but I am betting not, think earlier. Not sure if I will do housework or outside work---maybe a bit of both--dh is cooking breakfast so I know we won't head out too early.
Have a good day!

No the yard hasn't been mowed. Luckily the front was done before it got so hot as that's the only part anyone can see. Today I went out and swept up what leaves and twigs were missed by the yard waste truck. I wouldn't send anyone out in that heat to mow a yard-especially one as big as mine. Sarah (daughter 2) came and picked up the two kids today so we just had Aaliyah until her mom picked up about an hour ago. It was quiet enough for us to nap. lol It's getting real cloudy and dark which may mean this evening will be the same as yesterday with lots of thunder and lightning which isn't a great time to hit the pool. I will have to aim for the morning classes the rest of the week.

I'm glad you don't have to listen to the alarm in the morning. I know I love not hearing it. Mine usually goes off on Friday morning for coffee and Sunday for church. The only other times is if we have to get Trish to work really early and tomorrow is one of those days. She has to be in at 5 a.m. emoticon

Guess they entertain themselves with their electronics. Did your gs get your grass mowed?
Good pool workout last night. We ended up with our gd yesterday afternoon so dh did not go to the pool---he can go today---I am so glad I don't have to have the alarm wake me for a while---I did not want to get up this morning.

Having a lazy day today. Larry took Shane Allen to the Clothes Closet and we'll go pick him up soon then have lunch. I'm not sure if the kids are staying another night or not. Their mom used to give me her schedule but hasn't been doing that lately. Oh well, they're so quiet you can forget they're here.

Safer on that to do it yourself as you can back off from it and be more careful---seems like companies are never that careful. Maybe dh could ask someone who does it for advice. We didn't get a super strong one ---just one strong enough to do the house and the deck without killing my dh---LOL
Pool tonight for me!

GS got the 2nd tree cut up (well grandpa did most of the cutting) and it is all down at the curb for pickup on Tuesday morning. He also helped pick up leaves and weeds and got them to the curb. It's nice that he does all this with no complaining. The only complainer was grandpa who managed to cut through the cord and then didn't step back far enough when he cut a branch off one of the big trees in the back. emoticon I'll have to make sure to fill out the paperwork so he gets credit. Tomorrow morning he'll be back at the Clothes Closet. I'm still trying to get him to understand that they don't sell the clothes and food there but give it to those in need. The concept of giving that much stuff away doesn't compute well with him. He should be able to get 18 hours there this week.

I wish the gym and pool stayed open later on Sunday-an evening swim would be nice and help me sleep soundly. Closing before 6 pm is crazy. Maybe someone will leave me a lot of money and I can get my own pool. lol

Way to go on getting the chores done. I understand splitting it up-that's what I've been trying to do, to. I have mentioned a pressure washer to my husband but he insists you can never use it on stucco. I keep trying to tell him a low pressure would work and I see people doing it all the time. Ours needs to be cleaned so it can be patched in spots.

Linsey, hope things improve so that you can get back to the pool again. It would probably help you a lot in dealing with the stress, too.
Kerry, mowing is good exercise and hard work---no wonder all you wanted to do was crash. Hope the gs mows the rest for you.
We got a couple of outside projects completed--one in the morning and one in the late afternoon---we should start on the big project outside this week---want to get it done before it is too hot later this summer. We also bought a new pressure washer so that we can do the front of the house and the deck. I would love to paint the deck after we wash it.
Nothing planned for today!

We had the baby until 11:30 or so. She was a bit grumpy which I'm sure is due to the teething. This morning I had a healthy breakfast and read the paper then went out and mowed the yard. Well, part of the yard. I did the front which is small and the side areas but not the majority of the back. I'm saving that for my grandson and right now it's just too hot. The pool would have been nice after mowing but by the time I had showered I just wanted to crash. It looks like there may be some clouds rolling in-a little rain would be nice.

Currently away from swimming. Really miss it. Helping out family & busy getting needed stuff done. Could use some prayers, as well. Good day, everyone!

Did you get to skip that last thing or did you have the baby? Glad you made it to the pool.
Yes, I am looking forward to the break--hopefully I can keep myself busy and not get too bored.

After my coffee group I managed to read the paper and then get to water aerobics. I'm just watching Price is Right and then we'll go for lunch with daughter 2 and grandkids then go pick up daughter 3 and Aaliyah, drop DD at work and come home. It may even be late enough for Aaron to have finished up his deliveries and we can skip that last part. We'll see.

I know you're looking forward to that summer break. emoticon

Glad you got those planted. I'm sure he'll appreciate it.
Today has been pretty much a rest day. I did pick up Trish and Aaliyah, dropped Trish at work then Aaliyah and I made a quick run into Walgreen's before coming back to the house. I picked up my grandson and we went to visit Sam and Jane. Sam is the former principal who has been talking with GS. He and Jane were also his Sunday School teachers for several years. We had a late dinner here at home so I missed aqua. I'll get there tomorrow.

My goodness, you were definitely on yo-yo mode yesterday---LOL---good idea to just stay home after all that. Good thing gas prices are a lot lower than they were a couple of years ago. I have done the same thing---realize that my purse was at home.
We went over to my son's house yesterday and got the 14 plants I had for his house in the ground---dh will have to go water them the rest of the week as he will not be home until Saturday night---he is working a convention this week. At least the chore is done and it was a lot cooler here yesterday---boy, was the wind ripping, too---almost felt like the tail end of a hurricane but without the humidity or the rain.
Good pool workout last night!
Have a good Thursday---last full day with students here.

wow-I would love to have a landscaper around!! My yard really needs one. Today has been a crazy day with both Larry and me driving off in different directions getting kids and grandkids where they needed to be. DD3 had to unload a 5 a.m. truck so Larry got her there and Aaliyah home to me, back to get her and take her to a work meeting at a different store location, home, back to pick her up, home, lunch, take her and Aaliyah home for the day. Somewhere in the middle of that I got Aaliyah fed and changed then got grandson out of bed and delivered him to the Clothes Closet for 3+ hours of community service hours then back to the house, then back to pick him up and while I was waiting in the parking lot I discovered my purse had decided to NOT come along for the ride. I was very careful driving home. Shortly after that Larry and Trish arrived home so we had lunch together and drove her and baby home. A few minutes after we got home DD2 came and picked up GS. I think I am going to just stay planted at home for the evening.

I try to get in those extra minutes, too.
Sounds like you had a busy day--they should put those swim diapers next to the baby bathing suits.
I had a busy day at school and then went to Master gardener's leader's home---boy, does she have lots of gardens and lots of different plants--lucky for her that her dh is a landscaper--he cares for most of the gardening and brings home things that his clients decide they don't want anymore
Only 5 more work days for me.

I am just home from water aerobics and am exhausted!! I got in an extra 15 minutes because I got there early. I need to get something to eat now. We got our grandson to the Clothes Closet where he got in 3 1/2 hours of volunteering mostly with carrying things and cleaning up. The gal in charge said to bring him back every day which would add up to at least 14 hours or 17 if he gets there Saturday, too. After his shift we picked up our DD and DGD for lunch and a short trip through Target for things like formula, baby food, baby swimsuit but forgot the swim diapers. Oh well, next trip. Okay, I better get something healthy to eat.

I imagine a lot of the teachers have been boxing and storing things for the past few weeks---they try not to leave too much to do on that last day as they want to get out of there. I know our teachers have been doing that.. Fun with the baby is always a blessing. Glad you feel like it will be okay to leave--but honestly, the pastor could pitch in if need be or one of the deacons or trustees.
Had a good workout last night---paid for it last night though--legs ached like crazy--LOL

I agree. I'm a bit worried about what this country and the world will be like in just a few years when this generation starts taking over roles of leadership. emoticon

I sent the head counter at church that the new gal needed to work it with her alone so I came in late and watched. I recounted a couple things and made a couple notes but all went smoothly and matched the first time! emoticon I feel much more comfortable about getting out of town for a few weeks now.

We've had bands of rain coming through since last night but they've been leaving enough space between for things to really drain which is nice. Our grandson only got in 1 1/2 hours of service at the elementary school-I guess the teachers maybe didn't hear he was there to help or it was just easier to leave it be for the custodian? We'll try for 3 hours tomorrow at the Clothes Closet. He is just over halfway right now.

We had Aaliyah this afternoon and she was a bit fussy because of the teething but she started blowing raspberries so I was doing it back to her and she was laughing like crazy! A great way to spend the afternoon.

Hope you don't have any issues with all that rain. Honestly, I think it is more the me mentality of the younger generation. Shari is like this even if she hasn't been at work--always so negative towards our gd--She is one that should never have had kids
Only 7 more work days for me---then summer break! Woohoo!

I'm so glad my daughter isn't the only one who acts like that. She keeps telling me how grumpy Aaliyah has been and she's "so fussy" etc when she is just fine. I keep telling her she's just a normal baby. I can't imagine what's going to happen when she starts getting into things. The down time is a good idea. I may have to think about that.

Where were the youth? LOL We have 3 youth in the church and 2 of them are my grandkids. One was apparently up all night on the laptop or phone with her friends and Shane Allen was out getting some community service hours in. We're hoping he can get his hundred in less that 3 weeks. he is about halfway there thanks to the PAL having him work at the ballpark for the baseball tourney and he will get more tomorrow helping at the school helping teachers clean up and move furniture. We, as a church, are also hoping we can get some more young people into the church. I'm not sure the minister has the ideas and abilities to do that. We have gotten some new members because of his preaching but not young folks. Hopefully we can think some up.

No water for me other than the downfall from the sky while we had dinner with Trish. The roads near the restaurant we dine at were nicely flooded as we headed home but here at the house it isn't bad. If the tropical storm stays on track we should have several more rounds of rain, wind, etc.

That is good that they do that----the insurance person I talked to this year said to take a good look at F or G as she said they were the best plans. I hope you did not get burned doing the cars--and if it was a youth fund raiser, where were the youth?
We had our granddaugher for a few hours--had fun with her--but her mom just started on the poor child as soon as she got here---honestly, I wanted to shake her--I know she is tired from 12 hours of work but she is going to have so much trouble with her when she is a teen due to the way she treats her now. She had not done anything wrong---if anyone did, we did as we let her out on the porch in her socks---but we had cleaned the porch really well last weekend. I think from now on we will take her home and make sure Shari has some down time before we get there with her---and get her some socks to wear here so she can't b--- at the child about that anymore.

What, a bunch of old people jumping around in the pool is important??? It's all decided by people who have never even tried it.

I was going to go to class this morning but the youth had a car wash so we had to go. Normally I would have dragged my two grandkids but Shane Allen is working PAL baseball all today today and tomorrow for his community service hours and Cheyenne was still asleep. She would be awake if someone would take the electronics away from her every evening BUT it is the first weekend of summer vacation. We did have one youth there with the youth director and me. We didn't have anyone carrying signs by the road since there was no one-next time we need to attach the signs to something we can stick in the ground. We'll try that again in October when it's cooler. It was really too hot today. Every car that came through was a member of the church so it was nice they got that support. I'm exhausted-not so much from the actual washing but the sun and heat was awful.

Larry too me off his work insurance when the enrollment period came around and the company doesn't cover him past two years after retirement. I'm just glad we have an insurance company with Medicare specialists who come to our house and find out exactly what we need. The hardest thing is finding one policy (F) that will cover most of the prescription costs and Larry is on some expensive ones with his COPD and other issues. Luckily his doctor has already made plans to change his meds to less expensive treatments by the first of October when his medicare kicks in so that's a big help. The insurance company doesn't charge us for these services-I guess they get a commission from the insurance companies themselves.

We need to sign up for just the basic Medicare as we have private insurance thru my work so we don't have to look at the extra programs until I retire--I hear that is pretty confusing. Why do places think that water aerobics in never as important as their other classes? Honestly, you pay for them the same as other people do.

We had our coffee group then I went to the pool. Our leader was having to sub for a zumba class before she could come in to ours so class officially started at 9:15 though I am one who starts exercising as soon as I get in the pool so after my hour I stopped at Walgreens for my prescriptions then Larry and I went to get DD and DGD, dropped DD at work and grabbed a quick lunch before coming home to see our Medicare agent about getting Larry all signed up before October. He works hard to get us the best deal on our medications. Aaliyah was a little grumpy earlier but after a 4 oz bottle and a small jar of pears she fell asleep and is just waking from about a 2 1/2 hour nap.

Yea for being done!!

I haven't made it to the gym today-just too tired. I was out in the heat for more than an hour and it really wore me out even though I was only walking and pushing the stroller. I have an early morning coffee date so all the more reason to get to bed early.

Glad you got to water aerobics before getting the the baby---no wonder you needed a nap after dealing with that traffic--and good that you knew another way to get to her work. Poor baby--teething hurts.
Good field trip yesterday and a good work out in the pool last night. Today is the last thing I have to do with my student---he has graduation practice this morning and I will make sure he knows what he has to do and who he has to stand in back of so he can get to where he needs to be on Friday night. I am not going to the graduation. I am done with him today.

I hope your field trip goes well. I got an hour of water aerobics before going to pick up DD and Aliyah. We took the long way from their house to work because I forgot to get in the left turn lane-oops. It was solid traffic with 99% of people driving really poorly including a guy who missed his corner so turned into a lane of traffic coming towards him so he drove up over the curb and down the grass. emoticon We made it safely to work and then on the way to our house someone started crying so I pulled into a parking lot and texted DH that I was just taking her to the house rather than getting lunch out. He had picked up our GS and was at the ballpark waiting for the officer in charge of the kids doing community service so when the PAL officer got there he was able to leave S.A. there and picked up a sub for my lunch. Aaliyah is a bit fussy today with her first tooth beginning to show through the gum. I think I'm going to sleep even if she doesn't!!

Some one will have to hold her while you go to the bathroom---isn't that what your dh is for? LOL Then you can take her and he can go and you can take her in and change her---take an old towel with your to put on the changing tables or to put on the ground so she can kick and scrim and stretch out a bit.
I am going on a field trip today with some nature trails---need to wear my brace as a precaution ---good thing I have the pool tonight.

Will you be gone for a month? No way would I let my baby be gone that long--and so much more work for for you to travel with a baby. You do know you will need to stop more often and she needs to be out of that car seat everytime you stop so she can stretch out? Make sure you get a notarized statement authorizing you to get medical treatment if it is needed, too. Doesn't sound like much of a vacation for you with the baby along.
Didn't do much yesterday but watch war movies---did get a lot of laundry done and some science experiments out of the fridge

Glad you got the a/c units in!

I have 4 weeks of counting and then a 4 week vacation!! Hopefully by then Elaine will have figured out the new forms. They really aren't that confusing.

Aaliyah will be travelling with us as both her mom and dad are working. She's a different type of mom from me. I had a hard time leaving my kids for a two week trip to Europe with my mom and friends. It was a church group tour and mom was paying my way so we paid Larry's and went along. It was great but was hard leaving my grandkids with Larry's mother. Trish says I'm the only one she trusts with Aaliyah though she would let her sister babysit except both her sisters are going to the family reunion with us. Speaking of Aaliyah, I think it's about time to take her home. We have to pick her and her mom up by 4:30 to get her to work on time.

It really sounds like she should not be doing the counting anymore. Glad you will soon get some time off from that chore. Are you planning a long trip again? Who will watch the baby?
Son came over yesterday and put the ac units in--boy, did we need them in! We cooked out yesterday as today is rain, rain, rain. Thankfully cooling down a bit for this week but staying at normal temps for this time of year. No pool tonight since this is a holiday.

I think it was hot today-not that I was outside much. We did have one cooler day but mostly it has been around 90 for the last week.

Today was a normal church day with the money counting taking too long because we had new forms which totally confused Elaine even though she and I helped make them. Oh well, after I showed her exactly what she needed to add up we got it done. I am so looking forward to a month off!!

It was hot here yesterday---but I did get the front porch washed down and even spray painted some of the furniture before returning it to the porch---teal---they look so much better and so does my clean porch.
Did your gs get a lot done for you?

I haven't done anything today other than a load of laundry. Larry made breakfast for the three if us-grandson spent the night. I need to get GS out to trim some bushes.

Hard to believe that just last week I had to have the heat on--and my son can't come over until Sunday afternoon to put in ac units---thinking we need to check into how much central air would cost us--that could be next year's big expense We did take most thing soff the front porch last night as there is just too much pollen on everythning out there and everything needs to be washed off--I even plan to hose down the porch after I sweep it really good--then maybe I can enjoy sitting out there soon.
Hope you have a good start to your Memorial DAy weekend.

Good morning. I met my friends at McDonalds at 7 for coffee (and oatmeal for me) plus an hour of visiting before we all headed out to do our own thing. I was planning on water aerobics but am just totally out of energy after three days of working out in the hot sun. We pick up our grandson between 2:30 and 3 today and keep him overnight. I just realized this morning that the Clothes Closet is not open as it's not only the fourth Saturday but a holiday weekend so not working this weekend other than for us. It's nice that they have finally started allowing the kids to do work for grandparents-guess they are realizing we can't do everything we used to do. They still have 3 days of school next week for testing before the summer break.

I remember a vacation up to the NE expecting cooler summer weather only to be there for the hottest summer ever. emoticon Of course there was no air conditioning because it never gets that hot. Hope it cools off for you-it's too early in the year for all this heat.

Sounds like that worked out well for you yesterday. Hope your gs helps a lot on Saturday.
It feels more like Florida up here than MD---LOL---and no ac in the windows yet to turn on--not good sleeping weather at all. Temps will cool down a bit for the weekend---thankfully , but still feel like Spring. I could have used the pool last night---LOL

I did the morning class so I can stay home and chill but I also did it so I could go from their to our daughter's to get her and Aaliyah fur a lunch out. That class is at the location that's in between her house and ours. I took them back home after that and came home to do a little bush trimming and sweeping up the mess from Larry's edging, etc. I have more trimming to do but may need to sharpen my tools a bit. When grandson comes over for the weekend we can have him do a bit more work since he can count helping a grandparent as Community Service time. He needs to do 100 hours and hopefully he will get started Saturday morning

Seems like we can't win when it comes to drinking water and sleep---crazy, isn't it?
Pool really helped the legs last night---there were just 2 of us and we all did our own thing---I did exercises that didn't hurt and that worked the kinks out. Also wore my brace all day yesterday and my knee feels fine today.
Lots of sunshine and heat now---feels like Florida up here.

Lots of exercise for you yesterday--did you sleep well?
I finally got the vinca planted---and paid for it with aching knee and legs last night--and 2 cramps in different legs last night. I definitely need the pool tonight to relax those muscles--might not be able to push it too much but it will help those muscles. At least the flower beds look much better with the flowers in them. Now we need to mulch them, but will do that is smaller amounts of time---the plants really needed to get in the ground---had already lost about 5 of them from being in the pots too long.
My last full day with my student---hurray!

emoticon I did more than an hour of pushing the mower through the yard in the heat and then showered and changed so we could go pick up Trish and Aaliyah for lunch and Aaliyah's 6 month checkup. She is right on track with everything. She did not like her shots but settled right down afterward. We took them home again and I went to the gym for almost and hour and half of water aerobics. I am beat!! I still have to mow the other half of the yard tomorrow. emoticon

You were good---although some salads with dressings are not low in calories.
Had a good pool workout last night---I was sore last night so I know I worked harder than I have been---LOL

I still haven't gotten the yard mowed. I definitely need to get on it first thing in the morning. I did get a bin of yard waste-mostly leaves picked up and down to the curb. We had a large lunch at Golden Corral but I tried to stick with the healthier stuff-salads and only one small piece of blueberry pie. I stayed away from the ice cream, fudge, cookies and all the other deserts.

We will probably have that weather by the end of the week--but right now it is cool and overcast with chance of more rain---sure hope no more rain for a while but chance of it with the heat coming---which of course means high humidity, too---yuck.

I should have gone to the gym this morning because after the grass dried enough to mow it was just WAY too hot to be pushing a mower for about an hour. It was bad enough just walking to the car-I don't think it would have taken long to start burning.

Good morning. I've had a slow morning with breakfast and reading the paper. It has been very quiet with no kids or DH who was at church for the men's meeting. I was waiting for the sun to dry the grass so I could get it mowed but I think I should have moved faster because the clouds are beginning to roll through. We'll see. We have had rain for 2 days though yesterday was minus the horrible lightning of the day before.

Great start to your day yesterday.
Rainy weekend here---should have gd today but won't keep her as long today since I am off this morning and can be with her. Wish it was nicer so we could go do stuff outside--she needs the exercise to burn off that energy.

We have had a couple storms roll through with a lot of thunder and lightning in the one last night just as we were getting home from dropping GS off at home. It's been cloudy since I got up at least so we'll probably get more rain today. It's a good excuse to be lazy since I can't mow in this weather. I did make it to my 7 a.m. coffee group and water aerobics so the start of the day is great emoticon
