I hope your day isn't too bad. Right now I am sitting at the doctor's office for my yearly checkup of all my artificial joints. Of course, I got the time wrong so I'm an hour early. Oh well. Better than being late.

It is hard when you feel like you need to be in both places---hard to be far from loved ones that are sick and you worry about how they are doing. But you also know that your little grands need you, too. Hope you feel a bit better today about it.
Good pool workout last night.
Rough day ahead for me so keep me in your thoughts.

I'm having a down day-just can't stop thinking about dad plus Larry's brother-in-law both in Hospice plus Larry's sister going through that surgery alone. I feel like I should be there but can't afford to keep going back and forth. Since I moved away from Lincoln the day we returned fro our honeymoon I feel like I don't really 'belong' anymore. Of course, I was always the odd child-only one with dad's coloring-darker complexion with dark hair when all the others are blue eyed blondes. I've always been overweight and they are all thin altho a couple of the brothers have gained a little but easily take it off. They all played sports and I read books. Oh well. We will head back up that way before too long. I could go alone but Larry can't handle the two babies on his own and I would miss them so I'll wait a bit.

That was my whine for the day.

Bet the house seemed quiet after they were all gone. LOL to the baby being useless---she might be better with them when they get a bit older. My oldest son was really good with the youngest once he got to the toddler age and the middle one when he was a baby, but not when he could get around---LOL---they were 9 and 10 years older than my youngest.
Pool tonight!

Our grandson would pick up Adalynn and carry her around-rather clumsily but she seemed to enjoy it. Our oldest granddaughter had her and brought her back saying she was kind of useless because she can't do anything. LOL The babies loved the attention.

We had to drive all over the place taking Adalynn in for her shots, then driving to the north side of Jacksonville so Trish could pick up her newly repaired car. Larry and I kept the babies, grabbed lunch then came be home while Trish took the newly repaired car to Aaron so she could get her new SUV. The older grandkids were picked yesterday morning. We're now back down to just the two of us.

How are the teens with the young ones? Do they help at all? Good practice and good for them to see that babies are not all fun---LOL
Pool wasn't quite as warm last night---and the guy that was keeping the pool nice and clear has left them and you could tell a difference in the pool already---hope they get someone trained properly soon as he really did do a great job.

Had all the kids this morning then went to church to get the money counted. Suffering with allergies with nonstop sneezing does not make the job easy. It took forever for Elaine to get through the drive through at the bank-no idea why, they weren't busy. I could see she was first in line so headed home so Larry could get lunch for the older kids while I stayed with the younger. They were all in their own homes shortly after. Having a quiet evening now.

Your dd needs a back up plan for a babysitter in case you have to rush off. I can understand that your dh might find watching 2 of them a bit much---actually, I think you might find it the same way if you were alone---I am sure it helps to have your dh around when you watch 2 of them, too. My first 2 were 13 months apart and I know I did not get much done except for watching the kids for quite a while---thankfully dh helped with the housework a lot during those days as all I did was feed, change, do wash, and maybe wash the dishes---LOL
Lovely weather here today---plan on getting out and enjoying some fresh air today and having the front door open to air the house out.

We walked in the house after lunch with our youngest daughter and the two babies and looking out the kitchen window to the backyard and I have to say it looks great today. Green grass is growing and hopefully pushing the old weeds out. Maybe the spray is going to work this time.

I have two doctor appointments coming up and hope to be able to get them in without having to cancel and reschedule before heading to Nebraska. My sister and stepmother or M&M as my brother has taken to calling them (both are Mary) said if I wanted to fly up minus babies I could stay with my stepmother which is where we normally stay when we visit but it would no go well with Larry taking care of the girls while their parents work. Nope, not at all. He can barely handle one. My going up will just have to wait a week or so. I'll be able to stay there for as long as I want then.

Larry's brother in law (his oldest sister's husband) has cancer in several places and doesn't have long to live from the sounds of it, his younger sister just had to have 5 ft of her bowel removed. I guess we really better start taking much better care of ourselves.

Glad you got to talk to him and he sounded good. Woohoo on getting in more exercise with the lawn mower--we will probably have to start soon on mowing our lawn as it warms up.
Cold start to our Friday but tomorrow looks to be really nice all day---looking forward to that.

It was sunny but I tried to mow when the sun was toward the other die of the house but now g Florida that didn't work out well. Today it was cloudy and cool so I got the rest finished and then had lunch with Trish.

I got to talk with .my dad this afternoon. He sounded pretty good.

Probably due to your lack of activity with all the driving and the time with your family---everything seems harder when you have been inactive for a while. Did you mow in the middle of the day or when it was really shining in that area? Could be reflection from house or driveway adding to the feeling of heat.
The pool felt great last night---good workout ---and we had someone new join us--see how long she lasts---there are 3 of us that have held on but newbies come for a few times and then stop. I think some people do not realize just how much of a workout it can be in the pool and are not prepared for the soreness afterwards.
Have a good Thursday!

I missed that show. I did want to see it. Glad you did and enjoyed it.
Our yard is an odd shape because we sit in a curve from street to back is 180 ft plus 180 ft across the back but shorter o the other die. We have a double driveway so there's not a lot left for grass especially with the oak tree which kills the grass under and around . Normally it takes 20 minutes for the front and an hour for the back. I'm not understanding how the 70s can feel so blistering hot in March. emoticon

You must have a big yard. When it is really hot here, I have to take a break from doing the front and sides before I do the back---how warm is it down there? It is cold here for a couple of days but Saturday is supposed to hit 70.
We really enjoyed the Celtic Women last night. Looking forward to the pool tonight---knee giving me fits so I am wearing my brace today---already feels better with it on.
Guess your dad is ready to go on--sad but he has had a full life. They will make him comfortable in Hospice.

He still has some good days but they are getting fewer. They're moving him from the hospital to hospice Friday because he is barely eating.

Only the front got mowed and the hot sun really wiped me out in that hour. I am crashing tonight!

My knees were not good yesterday---no idea why---but the pool sure did help---it just felt wonderful when I got down the steps and the warm water enveloped my knees.
Going to a Celtic Women concert tonight.

Well after doing the church counting and then taking Aaliyah to the doctor and Trish to the grocery store I ran out of time and since it's after 10 the yard will have to wait another day. emoticon I do have to get it done before we head back to Nebraska.

Too bad the painter didn't put a bit of vanilla in the paint. Hope the smell did not affect your sleep last night.
I spent yesterday at the Flower Show---enjoyed all the tulips and the other flowers. I am very tired this morning---think I need to rehydrate myself today and rest up. I try not to drink too much so that I don't have to use the bathroom on the bus.
You really do need to make time and go to the pool again---I am sure you will feel better once you do.

Kerry, that is sad but sounds like he is ready to go---always sad for the ones left behind. Sounds like you are still in recovery from the whirlwind trip.

I still haven't mowed and after getting home from church the temperature started going down and we've done nothing but nap. While we were gone our son-in-law did come over and clean off the roof. Yea, Shane! Got a message from brother 3 who said he was with dad when his meal was served and dad is eating less every day. When he leaves the hospital he will be in hospice care.

We haven't had to mow yet, and with the cold weather this week, that should put that off for a bit more.
I have a turkey in the oven and the house smells so good right now.

I am sure you are tired from all that driving---and all the visiting while you were there.
Cold and windy today here---brrrrrr

Another day of laziness for me. I made it to the coffee group and have made two doctor appointments-eye and orthopedic.

I've spent the day going through newspapers and mail. Laundry is done. I still need to pay the bills. I haven't heard from Trish so I guess all is well there-probably not as quiet as my house. emoticon

Glad you got back safely---I am sure it felt really good to be back home---make getting to the gym a priority.
Had a really good pool workout last night---helped me sleep better, too.
Last warm day and then colder temps come back again---this yoyo weather is a pain!

We are back home now and laundry is going. Hopefully I can get moving and get to the gym. I also need to get some doctor appointments made.

I bet you are---sitting in a car all day is a long day plus having to entertain the youngsters would make it longer.
Pool tonight for me.

The pool sounds wonderful. Maybe when we get home . We'll be dropping Trish and kids home before getting to our house. I'm tired.

That is good to know---dh is on one for his triglicerides as his cholesterol is okay.
Hope travel was not too bad for you yesterday.
Good pool workout last night---water was very warm and really loosened the muscles.

It has already been proven that a lot of "medications" cause Alzheimer's yet they keep prescribing them. One of the worst is cholesterol meds. It's even recommended that people I've 80 not be given it.

It is hard for the main caregiver---not easy to deal with someone with this issue. Some of the meds they give older people are down right scary. Like cumudin--that is just rat poisoning.
Looking forward to the pool this evening.

Thank you. My stepmother is still complaining about dad repeatedly asking the same questions. I guess she's never dealt with this before. I know not with her first husband because he died I. A plane crash. I know it gets tiring but I just reply to him with the same answer and he's okay for a few minutes. Such is life of old age. There are reports coming out that many medications older people are being prescribed DO cause Alzheimer's. A good reason to save some money by not taking them. Aaliyah has just taken apart the pack n play so I need to fix it. Good grief.

emoticon After a great evening today we went and checked out the facility for dad which is nice and bright and clean. Shortly after that our stepmother visited with dad's doctor. Dad and he have been friends for a LONG time and he feels it's time to take away the pills that are keeping dad alive and just give him the pain pills. Dad is upset every time he can't recall a name or face, he can't get up without help and is in pain. He's always been a super active guy always working on something now all he knows is his address and biz wife's name though he sometimes thinks she has left him. Such a sad way to "live"'

We've all had a great time this evening but it's time for everyone to start heading home. One nephew had to leave early for his regular poker game. His wife and 2 kids stayed a bit longer but now it's getting late and most everyone is heading home. We had a great time talking about the old days and all the trouble my siblings got into. Some involved me but I was usually the one who got caught in the middle.

Is your dad going to be able to go home or will he need care? Hope everyone behaves today.

DH is the worst but daughter is nD, too. She has learned when to stay silent though, at least for the most part.

We spent an hour or do visiting Larry's sister but mostly resting. I think one of my brothers will be here this evening.
