YES!!! emoticon With rain every day for a couple of weeks it was knee high. It would have been easier with the riding mower but my husband refuses to get outside to repair it. Of course a lot of the weeds didn't get cut so they are sticking up laughing at me. I'll get them next time!

I got a nice surprise this morning when I picked up my prescriptions. They weren't $400+ like I was told the other day but $54. I hope they train that employee a LOT better than the basics she got.

Enjoy the shows! I bet they are great. My first day of no kids was taking them all to Target to get milk and a few other items. I hope now I can really have a few days of quiet.

I'm thinking of the gym this evening but not too loudly as I'm sure a storm would come flying through again. I'll be glad when this front moves on.

We really enjoyed the Duttons and Dublin Tenors. Seeing Statlers tonight. Nothing cheap here and lots of walking and driving up and down. Enjoying it. You will enjoy the free time.

The music sounds good but bad seating is never good. The last local show we went to with a group from church a friend who is about 80 fell thinking the step from the seating area to the ramp was about 2 inches when it was more like 10. That and the leg room weren't the best but the play was pretty good. We're driving back up to Nebraska next month for the burial of dad's ashes but won't have time to visit anywhere else. Larry has a court date regarding his retirement pay and the amount he got from unused vacation, etc. He's not the only one being bugged by this but the company had their own JEA employees fill out the paperwork. What a pain!!

Trish came for the kids and will have them for at least 5 days. I don't know what I'll do with myself!!! lol I'll actually be able to walk out of the house and go where I want to-they gym/pool, the store, a movie....

I flunked the contact test. Lol
So far we have seen 2 shows. Dixie Stampede was good but seating was not great for bad knees. Food was good. We really enjoyed The Duttons last night. A Family group with great fiddle playing and a great variety of music. Seeing Dublin Tenors this morning.

It's actually easier to correct my eyes with contacts than glasses. They seem to slow the decline. I'm the only one of us "kids" who stuck with the contacts .though all 4 of us tried back in the late 60s. Wearing glasses with these lousy eyes really hurts my nose and these are lightweight frames. We saw Wonder Woman.

We're the shows good?

I'm getting a 24 hour break until tomorrow evening emoticon I won't make it to the pool because we're going to a movie. We don't get many chances these days. I saw my tee doctor today and he got my contact completely clean so I can wear them but he also found two dry spots. emoticon My eyes have been horrible since 3rd grade.

Saw the doctor the other day and he agreed I need to get back to the gym and pool so I told my husband that he needs to help by babysitting while I do that. His comment was that he's never stopped me. HA! He's good at complaining about me leaving him to babysit.

We've had a nice quiet day with no kids, 7 a.m. coffee group, read the newspaper without someone tearing it up, a good visit with the orthopedic surgeon and now watching Wheel of Fortune.

Sure hope you were able to get a good night's sleep.
One of my pool friends has lent me her flotation belt so I should be able to do my exercises in the pools where we stay.
Heading across the bay into the mountains very shortly. Will post when I can.

More thunder and rain today here, too. We haven't done much. Had lunch at DQ then went to church to get the money from the coke machine, count it and take it to the bank. Exciting day, right?! The kids will be back after dinner for the night. Hopefully I have a more restful night. One that doesn't require 14 hours of sleep to recuperate.

That is probably due to no consistency in their lives with bedtime in one place---not your fault on that---hard when parents work strange shifts---at least your dd is working and not living off the government. Nowadays it is not like when we were youngsters and Moms stayed at home.
Worked too hard in the pool last night---paid for it with aches and pains last night and this morning---but since I won't be back to class for a month, felt I needed to push it last night.
Leaving tomorrow----plan on getting on before I leave, then not sure how much I will be on the computer---hope to pop on at least once a day but not sure how many emails I will get to.
Still hot and humid here---day 4 of our heat wave---yuck!

So true. I probably need to get more filters. I guess I'll read one of my Kindle books. I must have a couple hundred. I pick up a lot of free ones listed some $,99. I'm too cheap to pay more. I just need to find time to sit and read.

His to-do lists won't be that bad---just reminders about the plants and the ac filters ---he did a lot of the regular cleaning but just needs to be reminded that it still needs to be done when I am gone---LOL Men just do not notice things.
Glad you made it to the pool---hope you get the grass mowed and get to the pool today. Maybe you should go more often if the hot tub helped your achilles heel problem
I finally got my car back late afternoon---came home and got the inside all vacuumed and trash cleaned out---so the car is ready for my trip next week. Wanted to get that done before this weekend as it is going to be a heat wave for the next few days.

I did get to the water aerobics class after my Friday coffee group. I think here were 27 of us in the pool. I used the hot tub after which made my Achilles feel much better. After lunch I mowed the front yard since all the rain had it growing like crazy. I need to get out early and get the back done. Can I get more than an hour of mowing done and still make it to aqua tomorrow morning? hmm....

Do the To Do lists work with your husband? I'm not sure they would with mine.

Yes, I hope you do. And very glad you are getting a break from the girls.

She should definitely stay in the shallow end! Maybe, just maybe, I can get my rear to the pool in the morning. Trish and family are driving to Georgia to visit Aaron's parents.

Oh, I hope Trish has off so you can go.
Thankfully the pool was fixed and I got there last night---the warm water felt so good on my knee. We had 2 new people last night --a lady about my age and her 90 year old mom---who did not do well in the deep end---thought she was going to drown a few times---she was so frail and just using a noodle--eventually she went to the shallow end and sat on the steps---thinking she just needs to stay in the shallow end and do some walking and some exercises on the railing that spits the 2 areas---I am sure her dd really needs the pool as a stress reliever---and the warm water will still be good for her mom.

Tomorrow it's possible that I may be able to get to the pool.. oh darn, no it's not unless Trish isn't working. Larry has his retiree lunch and has to leave at 10 and the class doesn't end until 10, then showering and dressing plus the drive home... ugh. Guess I'll find out in the morning.

My youngest started the breaks in our family---at 2 he broke his leg jumping on the bed---I don't think he ever jumped on a bed again---LOL---he broke 8 bones from 2 to 14, then the older boys both had 2 breaks, then dh broke his foot, then I broke the end of my finger. It was all the youngest one's fault---LOL
Glad you had some time to yourself. No, the pile on the table does not sound like fun but if you are like me, you will find most of it can be trashed anyhow and then wonder why you saved it at all.
Hoping to find out that the pool pump is fixed so I can have water aerobics tonight---I need it. It is going to be cool today----not hitting 70, but the weekend looks hot ---yuck! I prefer today!
Have a good one!

When our kids were born we were a few hours from our parents. Mine came to visit several times and my mom drove out once to spend a week or so helping with our second child. I didn't really have help with the others. When I had my first miscarriage one of Larry's coworker's wife came over and took Dawn home with her for the day. Larry brought her home after work but that was about the only help I got. We never actually wanted Larry's folks to come out but they did once. It was too much of a drive for them-they thought we should always pack up the kids and drive to Lincoln. When we lived in North Platte our middle child broke her arm but it seemed to be no big deal to her. When we moved to Orange Park, our youngest managed to break both of her arms but not at the same time. I took her roller skates away. emoticon

Good morning. I have therapy in a bit so I need to get moving. It's cloudy again with possible rain but I still dragged the bins of newspaper to the curb. I sure hope they pick it ALL up today. Larry is off donating blood, Trish has the girls so right now I'm enjoying the peace and quiet. Sometime SOON I need to start going through everything that is piled on the kitchen table. It would be nice to be able to see the top. I just have to figure out what needs to be thrown away, given away or trashed. Boy, that sounds like a fun day.

We were lucky that our parents were about half an hour away, just in opposite directions. My mom didn't mind coming over as it was easier---until they got older and she would keep one overnight----but she would never take both---LOL---but it gave her good one-on-one time with them. When I had my 3rd son, we had a very wonderful church friend who watched him a lot for us when the older boys had sports games, esp. when Michael broke his leg and it was too cold for him to be out in shorts in April and May as I refused to cut off long pants as he could wear them later.
No pool workout last night---the pump messed up so it was closed--a bummer---hoping it is fixed so we have class on Wednesday.

I lived several hours away fro my parents so I never had the option of them babysitting. I actually wound up babysitting other kids to help entertain mine Ann's bring in a few bucks.

Glad Larry put his foot down about the kids---you need your rest if you are to take care of them You must have been exhausted. I don't understand these moms today. I had to let my 2nd baby stay at my MIL's for a week as the oldest had strep throat, double eye infection, double ear infection, and a reaction to his measles shot----he was so sick that I could not take care of him---and I felt bad about having to send the baby away but it was necessary. These moms seem to think nothing of leaving the kids with grands or caregivers at the drop of the hat. Your dd is so lucky that you take care of them but if you get sick from too much stress, then she really would be up the creek. You make sure you take care of yourself, too.
Take my car in to get the repairs done from running over a deer, then pool tonight. Hope we do get the rain predicted today.

On one of our last trips to Linda's we refused to go in with the baby because of the horrible stench. She wasn't happy but did drag some chairs out. The last trip the house smelled pretty good.

Larry made Trish mad this evening-he tested her asking when she was picking up the kids and she said tomorrow afternoon because she has to be at work 4:15. He told her to pick them up and bring them back on her way to work. I did request not too much noise. We'll see how that works. I'll need to head to bed soon since I only got 3 hours of sleep last night.

It's a wonder they didn't find lung cancer when they operated. Hope the sister can put up with it long enough to get her back on her feet---no way you can help with taking care of the girls---you would not want them in a smoker's house.
I did get 2 bags of mulch spread out yesterday---all my knee would allow---do plan on doing more on Monday. It was really nice outside here yesterday.

I hope so, too, but this is the long time smoker who hasn't handled losing her husband well at all. She and her sister look like twins and I can't picture them getting along for a long period. Linda seldom has anything good about anyone.

I can't imagine being in a nursing home that long or the cost of it. Just let me go if that happens to me.

Well, I finally got out to mow the one section I didn't get to last week. Of course, with all the rain I need to redo the rest. emoticon It was hotter than it felt so maybe Monday.

Oh, yes, a sure mixture for sparks to fly. Hope the surgery actually helps her and she has a better attitude. Nice that that sister will fly all the way down from Alaska to care for her---big climate change for her---she might actually appreciate the cold up there when she goes back---LOL
Glad you were able to get out for the breakfast and then later for your luncheon/dinner.
Sounds like the tree has made a mess for you to deal with after a heavy rain.
Went to my former classmate's funeral yesterday---she has been in a nursing home for 12 years after a very bad stroke. Afterwards I walked around town and got some ice cream and then went to a shop that a friend has opened there---he and I were one-on-one assistants and really helped each other out and I miss him so it was really nice to get to chat with him.
Hope to put out some mulch today if my knee allows it---mostly plan to do the raised bed so i should be okay.
Have a good Saturday.

I think she was planning to come back but the got busy at home. She did drop them off and Larry and I took them to my Friday coffee group. Usually Aaliyah and I share a parfait but today we each had one.

We have had enough rain this week to fill a pool-too bad I don't have one. Luckily it didn't start this afternoon until after we got home from my physical therapy and a late lunch/early dinner which was good since it came down hard and fast. The oak tree in front has pushed the dirt up so the yard slopes TO the house and sometimes when it rains heavy and/or long I have to take the push broom out and sweep it to the driveway where it can go downhill.

Larry's talking to his brother now about their sister-she's in the hospital again for another surgery. This one was to try and fix her back in two different places. She actually has an infection in her spine. I'm wondering why she messes with surgery when she just keeps saying she wants to die and be with her late husband. Guess she isn't as ready for that as she thinks. The older sister is a nurse and is planning to come down from Alaska to help Linda. There should be a lot of fireworks there because they are alike and the sparks do fly!!

Did she just forget to do that? Once Reagann could fave forward, we bought a car seat to keep with us so as not to have that issue---but sometimes it is a pain when we don't need it in the car for some reason and then we have to find a place for it in the house.
Yes, no need to clean when she will just mess it up---LOL
We went ahead and ordered the windows and also a new back door and storm door---we need that more than the windows----will be 6 to 8 weeks before they are ready for installation---also getting the outside portion wrapped so that we won'[t have to worry about rot---we don't want to have any issues in the future to deal with.
I was surprised it didn't rain last night---I washed my car yesterday---LOL---but think that is what messed up my knee for the night.
A friend from elementary school passed away this week---funeral is today so I am going to go to that---just my age--62---she had a stroke a long while back and has been living in a nursing home for quite a while.
Hope you have a good day today and can escape if you want to---LOL

I can't feel too bad for him, either but that neighborhood is old and most people only have carports. The cars did have covers so the carport may have been down on the cars first. I do agree about not feeling bad for someone with enough money to waste on cars. I haven't been able to do anything today-Larry went to his regular Thursday retiree lunch at 10 and Trish didn't leave the car seats so here I sit. There's no point trying to clean with Aaliyah messing up behind me. I still need to finish mowing the backyard before it's knee high.

I am bad, but can't feel too bad for some one with 2 porshes---think he would have them in a garage. Storms like that are no fun at all. Hope your dh got home safely.
We had a good workout in the pool, even without an instructor---we knew we wouldn't have one---just needed someone to lock up after we left.

It cooled off when the storm (possible small tornado) rolled through. We were without electricity for maybe an hour but missed the bad stuff. Trees down on houses and cars, including a man who had a tree fall on his 2 Porsche s. Sarah and Shane had their oak tree taken out last year so they were lucky. Their corner wasn't hit hard.

I've enjoyed having a quiet house but Larry should be home this evening. I know he left Dawn's about 10. He will or has gone straight to church to help prepare dinner. I'm just having lunch on my way home from therapy.

DH definitely needs to learn to control his temper but I don't think that will ever happen. It's so much easier to enjoy the kids and clean up after. It won't be long before they can start helping.

I think I'm ready for a nap. 90+ in May is too hot.

Sounds like dh needs to change his habits and find a new place for the mail---little ones love to get into things. Annoying but he is a grown up---LOL---or supposed to be. I have to get on dh for those kind of things when my gd was little, too.
Miss not having the pool last night---my body could use the warm water. It is overcast and cool here again today---with good chance of rain---so my body has been achy..

When are you leaving? I'm sure you'll have a great time.

Aaliyah is 18 months. One of the problems is my husband stacks the newspaper on the floor by his chair because it's a pain to take them to the garage/recycle bin. He also stacks the mail on the couch under the little table that slides in there. I think the biggest issue is that she's a smart little kid has to check everything out. I'm trying to make the backyard an area she can play in. Maybe she can wear herself out.

Is she so destructive at home? Or is there just more that she can get into at your house? Wish I could think of some way for you to channel her energy. How old is she now? Wonder if she would qualify for a program that you could put her in come the Fall---she would benefit from some structure and being around other kids.
I haven't been but have heard good things so looking forward to Branson. I am going with one Spark friend and another is meeting us there to stay with us. And we hope to make contact with a few others on the way home from there. I have never seen or been across the Mississippi River so looking forward to doing that and seeing all the different states we will be going thru to get there. I want a magnet from each state---LOL
Going to cook out today---at least one son is coming---need to call oldest to see if he wants to come, too.

I have never been to Branson. My dad said he was tired of going there because he and my stepmom went several times a year to watch programs her kids or grandkids were in. I would like to go sometime.

I've been up and down all day stopping Aaliyah from tearing things up and tossing them around. She kept me busy all day. Thankfully her sister isn't even crawling yet but it won't be long. She was pushing herself up-traveled several feet so when she gets her knees under her she'll be helping her sister.

Little ones are a lot of work---esp. 2 of them---so I can understand---we are both getting too old for that. Sorry you will miss church though.
Talked with my friend Joy yesterday about our trip to Branson---now I need to call this week and get some tickets purchased for a few shows. I am so looking forward to my adventure.in June.
Hope the girls are good for you today.

Good for you! You need to take care of yourself is you are going to take care of the little ones---and she needs to realize what a blessing it is for you to watch her kids as much as you do.
We had our gd for a few hours last night--enjoyed the time with her.

Good morning! I went to the regular Friday morning coffee group. When I got home I called the rehab center and had to cancel today's appointment because, of course, Friday is a very busy day. I'll have to make it up at the after next week's 2 sessions. SO irritating. I have to email Trish about when my next two sessions are because I don't think Larry will be back for at least a week. Well, we'll now see if my little message makes her mad. lol I told her my next two appointments and if she couldn't reschedule her work she needs to find a sitter. I guess I have a few hours of rest time now.

Shoulder surgery is hard on the guys--I know my dh needed a lot of help with pants, etc plus putting on a shirt was a real struggle.
Hope you have a good day today. We are going to take our gd out for dinner tonight----probably Chick-fil-a as she loves that place, then of course, she will want to go shopping---she knows Mommom is an easy touch---LOL
