It was a good time, hubby had a hard time getting around but I got him in at the top and he sat and took pictures at the window. I didn't get to walk around much but I am going back.
Good job on the weight Joy, it is important for you to stay healthy.
I tried to up load a picture guess I will work on it later.
I am happy you can get hubby out even if it is only for a short ride, I think it makes a difference in how they feel, not so isolated.
The MT is 6 thousand plus feet and in the White Mts in New Hampshire, tons of Mts about 5,000 feet around Washington. It is just beautiful at the top, the cog railway has been going up since 1866. It was a day to remember,
Have a great dya,
Carol who wants to hike up.

Rosie, doesn't sound like she wants to work, think they need to get someone quick!
We had rain again last night and it is getting cooler.
I am taking hubby up to Mt Washington to take the cog railway to the top. It is something he has always wanted to do. Going to be cold and windy on top so I have winter jackets, hats and mittins ready. He is excited to be going. I will post pictures after Monday, stay tuned for our adventure.
I would like to hike it but my daughter says my picture is at all trail heads in NH saying do not admit. lol
Have a great day,
Carol

Ha ha, well , Joy and Carol, I don't know if things will work out with this young gal or not, my co worker in Laundry, told me today, she has already requested time off, for a week, and I guess our supervisor "Denied" it, she has just started working here and hasn't got her 90 days in yet to be asking that because she wants to go to Canada, (I think that's what my coworker said) She is suppose to be working in Laundry this weekend.... we really don't have enough help as it is, and I and my housekeeping co worker have a day each added on our new schedule. I don't mind an extra day now and then, but. Yeah, I can use the money, that is for sure.

It is good that you can get your hubby's out and about, now and then

Joy, I drag hubby out to a store at least once a week. And I mean drag, he likes super walmart or Market Basket where I work, I take him early before the ton of people and usually on a Weds when the markets are not busy, they have wheel chairs too with baskets so I can push him if he doesn't want the riding cart. I tell him I need help with what he wants to eat and if we go to walmart I look around and make him look at things, when he goes to a store he is like a kid. lol
Looks at everything.
I hope you slept good once you got to sleep. I have to walk or I don't sleep good.
Rosie hope they get work fixed!
Thinking of you all,
Carol

Yikes Rosie, sounds like the kid doesn't want to work! I hope they get it fixed and find someone that wants a job. The fact she doesn't work is hard on everyone!
Nice weather here, hot but going to get cool over the weekend, Friday night a cold front is going to roll through and the temps are going to drop from high 80's during the day to low 60's. should be interesting. I am ready for the heat to go!
Have a good day Rosie,

Have company here right now, my oldest granddaughter and her two boys are here, so, I'll be back later, (I hope)

I'm back, granddaughter left.....

What has happened at work, is one gal quit, and had obviously gave a 2 week notice, he hired her daughter who is just fresh out of high school and just graduated and just turned 18 after school was out, she is suppose to be taking her mothers days that she was to work that is on the schedule, but, now I am not sure what is going on with her, but, she should be working these days, now it is me and the other ones having to fill in for her, which is just not right and I am just wondering if she is even going to work at all period.. ? emoticon It kind of leaves us other ones in a bind, she is suppose to be doing laundry this weekend, there's no one else to do it, as it is mine and the other two people's weekend off this weekend?? It's a Bummer The schedule was made out b4 the gal quit

Good Morning Sisters,
Rain is over but now big time fog. We needed the rain bad and It was nice to have a day with no sun and just be lazy!
Rosie, sounds like someone is calling out at your work.
It is good you can work!
I hope your daughter does not need surgery but if she does I can say a prayer for her, I will anyway.
I hope you have a good day, thinking of you.

We got some rain his late afternoon, too.......Well, so much for 3 days off!! I was called this morning to go work, I said, No, because I had promised to take, my granddaughter to Gaylord, today for an appointment she had, then later, I received another call from my supervisor asking me if I could work the next 2 days, I said well, I can work tomorrow on Tuesday, but, not Wed. because I promised my son I would take him to Houghton Lake, Besides I already work on Thursday and Friday as it is, now, I'll need to take my daughter, over to Traverse City, for an appointment she just made for her veins in her leg, she says it is hurting her big time. And she may want/need surgery, on them, (again) I should have 4 hours PTO time on this check for this week, yay emoticon

It is raining here, serious rain and I love it!! We have not had any real rain all summer and the drought is now extreme. Happy we are having rain!
My hubby will not walk, except to the bathroom, sometimes I try to get him out to the store but he uses the riding carts and that is a hazard in itself, lol
Anyway, have a good day!

Thank you emoticon Carol, and yes, I know, I use to tell my dad that when he was in our Nursing Home, he got so he would rather use the wheel chair instead of his walker, but, just now as I was writing this, I just had a thought, he had a broken hip and had surgery on it b4 he came to our home and used a walker for some time, maybe his hip was hurting him so to be able to walk comfortably, He was almost 81 when he passed. Yah, I know, I walk as much as I can

Love the family tree, it is going to be beautiful. the pets are nice too, very cute, I like the fluffy little dog!
Good that you do still walk, if you don't you will lose it! And you do not want that. I try to do about 4 miles a day, outside and on the treadmill! Keeps me feeling good and I sleep good too!
Have a great day, love the pictures!

Thanks, Carol, I don't think I could keep up with you, lol I'll try the balance thing, and I do try and walk, did some at the firemen's memorial last night and today, went down and visited my son, he was working on painting a birdhouse replica of his house and had also been working on a wall painting of a family tree that he had started for his wife b4 she passed, I am going to take him down to Houghton Lake on Wed. so he can look at some golf carts, because he would like to buy one



Picture of the birdhouse he made, Family Tree, and 3 of their pets, there's another cat some where, plus the cat had kittens and he said their are 2 left to give away, yet

Well Rosie one thing you can do for balance it stand at the counter or hold on to the back of a chair and stand on one foot. Try for 30 seconds for each foot and increase as you get better.
do it everyday for a few min. It should help.
Well if you don't walk much you will lose the ability to walk. Just do it. I wish you and Joy lived closer. I would pick you up and we would walk.
Big hug,
Carol

I will, Carol........Like I said on another team, I am on, I feel like a turtle when I just go out for a walk, I just walk so slow, it just irritates me, to no end emoticon But, I do try once in a while, just seems like I can't go as far as I used to be able too, and then there is balance which also is worse, wish I knew what to do for my balance?

Joy, that would be Mt Washington here in NH. I would need a week and now that it is fall the weather can change in an instant. Winds of 125 miles per hour and snow anytime so I may have to wait until summer. Maybe I will climb up and take the cog railway down. I don't know if my daughter would go with me again. lol
Hope you have a good time, get out and walk! Walking is one of the best things you can do for yourself! Start slow.
Rosie, keep us posted on your daughters quest for employment.

Joy my hubby has low blood pressure too. Really lowlife your hubby. I take his sitting down and then standing up, and it drops like crazy, he is on gems for it. Seem to help a little.
I am happy you can get some help, I am at the point where I could use a week off. But I don't see it in the cards anytime soon. I hope you get some rest and are able to take advantage of the help.
Rosie praying for your daughter to get the job!!

Caarol, Iwas only teasing about u not getting down off the mountain. What an adventure!!! I can imagine hubby being worried.
I am going to get some help. 2hours 3 times week. Personal care. The nursesaid I could do 4 hours 1 day I think. He is getting physical therapy and they can't come till tat is over. Oct. 2. Doesn't amount to much Also an have 30 days year respite care. That can be 6 hous a day or nursing home for a few days if needed.
Rosie, hope dau.gets job. Is she working now?
Hubby"s BP dropped real low Sun. He said he fet like going to church. First time in long time. Got hom ready early and he went to sleep. Could not wake him. Kept on and his BP was down. I wasn't too worried at first and couldn't get machine to work. Finally he started moving a little and I ot it working and it was 54\38. Caled 911 and they took himm in. Lethim come home in about 3 hrs. I putthe cuff on him Mon, am when he slept and left it. It would be around 82\56 so I called Dr. and they said to increase Fludocortison Acetate from 2 to 3. Nueorologist hadhim wearing compressed hose and I got where I couln't put them on and she increased it to 2. Byaand God bless, Joy

Well Rosie, I did it! But would not recommend it to anyone. I did have a good time, it was a beautiful day, not hot and a breeze. I worked yesterday and again tomorrow. We need rain we have a deficit of 14 inches, I hope we don't get it all at once.

Joy and rosie, hahaha, I did make it to the top but had a hard time getting down, the Park Rangers were worried I would fall and walked me down, it got dark and they had head lamps for us. So half way down they call base and said send up two sleeping bags with a stove and dinner. Someone met us a while later they set up camp and Brittany and I cowboy camped. They made us ramen noodles for dinner, it tasted wonderful. I did get dehydrated so I was not in the best of shape. The last thing Brittany said to me is "this is the most fun I have ever had, what an adventure."
Next morning we got up and packed our stuff and started down again, the park rangers met us after about an hour. We got down about 2 pm. sigh
I was happy to be off the mt but we had told Laura the other kid to take the car and go home as she had to work. Daughter Victoria came and picked us up.
Oh I should mention the rangers told us don't worry about wildlife as they are more scared of us but in the morning they were talking about the bear sighting and the Moose poop they saw. lol
It was an adventure to say the least. I love camping and sleeping under the stars. We stayed warm and they left us water and protein bars. In the morning they brought us Mcdonald breakfast but no coffee. It was actually better than being at home.
Hubby got worried and called the police during the night, they came to the house and got a hold of Victoria who was out with friends she told them I was ok and told her dad to check his messages. The police called the EMT's and wanted to take him to the hospital but Victoria said he always sounds like this I will stay home with him.
Hope you can get some help Joy

Joy, I tell hubby not to answer the phone or door and not to go outside while I am not here. He behaves himself. I am happy about that I really like working.
Nice weather here getting a little cooler now if we could get some rain!
I am working today. Hope you all have a great day,

Happy to hear about your son. I am sure it is hard for him but it sounds like he is making progress. A good day is a good thing!
Thank you for adding me to the list, looks like fun.
You have a nice family rose, I am happy you have so many nice people around you.
Going up Mt Monadnock today should be interesting. Getting down is the hard part. I have food packed and tons of water, we should have a good time!
Have a good day,
Carol

Okay Carol, and thank you, I will add you. To the group.

I went to see my son this afternoon, and he seemed to be doing actually good today, he had not felt good for 2 or 3 days, on top of not really feeling like doing anything much since losing his wife. He seemed pretty happy today and I even heard hi doing some whistling, it was sweet music to my ears.. I know he is still going to have his days, along with the not feeling good, but, he also seems to be wanting to try and meet people and make new friends, also. emoticon Like he told me once, as long as I am happy he is happy

Rosie add me to the list, I might buy something, It sounds interesting!
I am happy your daughter can sub teach, that would be good for her, I will say prayers for the head start position. I am sure she will be happy getting a pay check! Good for her and you too.
Enjoy the day, I am going mt climbing with Brittany and a young lady from work. We are climbing MT Monadnock I am calling it the death march, lol.
It should be fun, I have fixed some food so we can eat at the top.
School started here last Tues.
Have a great day,

Yeah, it does, Carol, I was on another hall, when it all started and by the time, I got my cart taken care of, that one whole hall that was affected, was about taken care of, anyway, that don't happen often here, and I was glad it was over with and then it was my lunch time..

School just starts here this coming Tues. and now my DD is all signed up for sub teaching, Yay emoticon She also told me when I got home from work, that, she applied for a head start position, Yay and I really hope, wish, pray that she would get it, but? Any way's it would be great for her, it would/is close to us, for now, then she may be able to invest in a car..

My son's girls, are into doing online clothing sales, they are a bit expensive, but, you can also go to her house if you are close enough, it is the LOULAROE Clothing line. Last night they did a couple of Live Videos, They sure were Awesome!! Anyway, Darci, has the group on FB, I can add you to the group if you would like to, you wouldn't have to buy anything, but, if you stayed in the group, it would help support her. Then you could see what kind of stuff they have and etc.

I am going to try and enjoy today!! Since it is my day, off back to work tomorrow...

Rosie, little things like smoke keep it interesting! Happy there was nothing wrong.
Everything is busy here too. School has started but people are still out doing school shopping. Gas stations are busy too. Roads, sigh the police are out giving tickets to anyone going over 70 mph. That is a good thing.
Hope you have a good day,

Well, we had a fire or smoke, and had the firemen there, it was just some smoke and had to evacuate that hall, for a time while the firemen checked everything out which was okay when they were done, no fire, just some one smelled smoke and saw some in the air. That lasted about a half hour to 45 min.

The stores were crazy busy here when I got out of work, went and got a script filled, they were busy, busy, busy all the stores and gas stations.

My furbaby is doing good. She is eating boiled chicken and rice and she loves it. I wonder if she will want her regular food after this.
Your grandma sounds like a cool woman. You were lucky to have her.
Got to get ready for work,

Glad your fur baby got to go home.

Yeah, I guess my first one was only 18, or that is what I had heard, and my grandma had married 2 times, because my grandpa passed when I was just a wee baby just a few months old, and grandma remarried, so, my 1st step mom was his granddaughter, grandma's husbands were a bit older than she was. Grandma would not remarry a 3rd time because when I was about 13 she told me God took away 2 husbands from her and she would not let him take a 3rd, so she never married after that, my hubby and I used o tease her about a neighbor man, he used to stop by and visit her sometimes. Grandma always come back with something about that. lol

some residents have to have thickened liquids, To me it seemed like un thickened would be ok, but, then what do I know, I am not a Dr. or Nurse

Yikes Rosie, sounds like you had a rough time for a while. sounds like stepmom #2 was good to you. I am sorry kids have to go through with all that stuff.
My baby bella is feeling better she came home yesterday and has to eat chicken with rice for about four days, she is not complaining. lol
The vet thinks it was a virus.
Well I hope you have a good day today, I think you are off today.
I could not work yesterday as I had to take hubby for a swallowing test, he didn't pass and I now have to thicken up anything with liquids. I bought the stuff yesterday.
Anyway, have a great day Rosie,
Big hugs for you,
Carol

I do hate that when that happens!!! Sorry your fur baby Bella is sick, hope she is better, soon.

Well, to make a long story short, first step mom, ran around on my dad, sent my brother and me outside, with a cold potato, while she entertained men in the house, was in an accident with one man, one time, and left my dad by taking me and my brother to our grandma's house and told me and grandma, that, she was going to the Post Office to mail a letter, Then left got on the bus, back o Detroit, (she was from there). My grandma just lived one block from town, and the Post Office was just another 3 blocks from there. Really she could have taken us with her. She did this when my dad was at work. I guess dad remarried sooner than maybe he should have. I do also remember she is the one that took me and started me in school in Kindergarten, and she made me some skirts out of some of my mothers, clothes, which I liked to twirl around in. She was also a bigamist, remarried before her and dad were divorced, which didn't happen until I was about 10 years old. My 2nd step mom and dad were together for about 25 years and she passed away. They were together since I was in 1st grade, but, could not get married until the divorce went through. After step mom #2, dad remarried again after I was married and had my kids and my daughter was married She was same age as me and not all in her right mind, I don't think... She wanted to keep Easter boiled eggs until the following Easter, Lol Dad said he told she could no do that, cause they would spoil and not be any good, Duh that ended up in a divorce because she tried to stab him after they were together for about 6 years maybe, which she is another long story

Well, off work for 2 days, and yes it is hard to work 2 days in a row, normally I would have been off yesterday, but, was scheduled because someone quit (got another job) and they just hired a new person. So, I have had a couple extra days here and there. Otherwise I do work 2 days in a row about every other week which is payday week. and weekend off

Good Morning Rosie and Joy,
i think it would be hard to work two days in a row! I know I like to have a day off in between to regroup.
I hope you have a good day at work!
My mother was grown up before she had a step mom and she was a nice one. My moms mother passed when she was 4 years old and she went to live with her grandparents in northern VT. She stayed with them until she was about 15 I think and then moved in with her Dad in MA. Lots of changes when she was a teen.
My mom was a sweet gentle woman, nothing like me. lol
Even when she was sick and dying she never complained. I took care of her for 5 years after my Dad passed. She would not tell me if anything was wrong. Kind of drove me nuts, I had to guess.
I took her to the doctors because she was having a hard time and when the doctor asked her why she was there she said, Because I made her go. She had pneumonia. sigh
So much for that remembering.

Rosie, that is so cute. I am sorry you lost your Mother at an early age. I think that is very hard on little kids. You are lucky you had grand parents, my mother also lost her mother when she was young and lived with her grandparents.
My daughter Brittany is coming home next weekend and we are going to climb a MT, Mt Monadnock should be fun. It is high and rocky trail, not a 4,000 footer but 3260 or something like that. I want to climb Mt Washington, so I am in training, lol
Hope you have a great day,

This is our 1st Grade picture, and yes, I went to a big school also. Our teacher was mean and most did not like her, In Kindergarten we went half days and bus kids went in the morning and town kids went in the afternoon, I/we lived with my grandma since our mom had passed away early, and we lived in town.

Girls, I went to a one room country school. I was 5 in Aug and started school.Think there was 2 or 3 first graders. Daddy bought another farm and we moved in Jan. Another one room and had a man teacher. A neighbor girl scared me about him and I just went one day and got scared and started crying. He sent a girl to walk me home. He snorted and they called him snorting Jim. Anyway the next year my great aunt was teacher and I guess I finished firs and second. When I was in third they consolidated and we rode a bus to aBIG school. Probably 15 in my grade. Think we graduated 16. I never had trouble when I started third.

Had it towed to shop. OUT OF GAS>Cost 150 for towand garage. Showed .25 in tank I had said as we wentt to Dr. I was going to fill up while we were there. Cheaper there.

Been getting lot of rain. Grass still growing fast. Usually it doesn't grow much by now. I still get over it. Takes me 3 or 4 times at 1 hour each time. I have only mowed every 10 day or 2 weeks.
Fridge went out Tues. Had a regular one in kitchen that went out couple months ago. Had a side by side at other place and had moved wsher dryer out of hall and put it there. Full of frozen stuff. Had a freezer stil at other place next doorso got it moved and went to Lowesand got one. JUst for kitchen. Other started working again but don't know if it will keep working. I had decided Ididn't need 2 fridges. Liked the freezer space better.

Good morning Rose,
Yeah for wire cutters, I did my nails yesterday.
We have a school house here one room and they take school kids to see what it was like. It was built in the late 1600's.
It is good you went to see your son. Hope he is ok, think of him oftern
Nothing exciting here. But that is a good thing.
Have a great day,

I tried to cut mine myself, but could not do it, I'll have to try and come up with a pair of wire cutters, lol

I worked today and am off tomorrow, I want to go see a car show and the fair and check out the little red school house that is there, I believe it has some of the records of some of the other one room schools that used to be open in Gaylord, and this one is one that has been preserved or saved.

It has rained here, this late afternoon, and I went to visit my son for a bit and then went to see my granddaughter for a few minutes as well.

You have a good one, too, Carol

Rosie, Happy your feet and legs feel better! I am sure it feels good to have them done. Someday I will have mine done I figure as long as I can do it I might as well......
I had a flu shot and my arm is sore. I had to do a lot of lifting at work yesterday but it feels better when I do something. Happy I didn't rest it. Sometimes it is better not to rest pain, guess this is one of those times.
Have a great day Rosie and Joy,

Any ideas? Some places actually hurt on my toenails where they, worked on them, but, they are okay. I was also going to take a picture of my feet when she was working on them but I didn't. ha haha

Yeah, we needed he rain here as well, I just don't like driving in it, period. lol

Thanks, my toenails are way too long, but, I have went there b4 when they have been too long too, They have a girl there that is deaf n dumb, well, that is always what I heard them referred to. anyways, she will most likely be doing mine. Years ago, my grandma had some neighbors, that had a boy that was that way and every time he came by, my dad used to talk to him and always used sign language, I used to know some, but, not anymore, which I had a pamphlet like I used to have back in the school days. This girl can't talk, hear or read. I didn't know, she couldn't read and once, I wrote a note to her on something (my feet) so a lady worker said she can't read, well, I didn't know that.

Off work today, but, work tomorrow....

Good Morning Sisters,
Rosie we could us the rain, I will take it! Rained on Tuesday but not enough to make a difference. Long range forecast says we have a chance for showers two more times this month.
Good luck with your Pedi.
I am working today!
Carol who is reading hiking books!

Lol emoticon Well, I stopped in at Kim's magic Nails this afternoon and made an appointment for tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 p.m. for a Pedi. It was raining pretty doggone good when we were at the dentist office up there, so I didn't want to drive back over to Walmart and get it done, however, it did stop raining when we were waiting and I could have went back, but, just didn't, so anyways, I'll get them done tomorrow.

I just got done reading a book, it is an Amish one, A Mother's Secret, by Amy Clipston, was so good and of course brought many happy tears, as usual I cry like that lol

I usually get my toenails, done at Kim's Magic Nails here in town, but, have not been able to get there or have the extra money, and mine are way too long and thick for me to do. Wire cutters you said? Carol? Hmn, I may have some of those in the garage, maybe, lol Same price basically as going to a podiatrist, and can get feet soaked...

Rosie, have a good two days off, sounds like they will be busy days. I do my toenails, I have a wire cutter and it works good on my toenails.lol I think Walmart is good for that. They always have people that know what they are doing. Well around here anyway!
I have the day off today but have a ton of work to do, you know how that is. Sometimes going to work is easier.
Good luck to your granddaughter!

I worked today and have next two days off, Tomorrow have to take daughter and granddaughter up to dentist, granddaughter has dental work to be done. Wisdom teeth to be pulled I think. It was suppose to be Oct 24th, but, I guess, it changed to tomorrow. Then, hopefully, I can go get a pedicure on my feet, they need it bad and toenails need clipped BAD also. Will try to get that done at Walmart, first time to go there for that!!

Rosie, I do think you have it in Gods hands but there is a little bump in the road. Well a big bump but trusting in God will help. Hang in there. We all need you.
Hot again today and we may get rain again, that would be so good!
I am working today and hubby has a dr appointment later today so I will be busy!
Have a good day Rosie and Joy too.

I value yours and Joys friendship as well, Carol, I guess, I thought I had it pretty much in Gods hands when the emergency happened, but, guess not.

It was foggy this morning, but, has since warmed up and turned hot

Rosie, I value your and Joy-s friendship, we have been together for a long time!
Your son is lucky to have you and you him. I know it is easy to say put things in Gods hands but doing it is another story. I do understand.
We had rain Sat night a lot of rain and thunder. Poor Bella was scared and shook for several hours until the storm was over. It stalled over us. We needed the rain bad so no complaints. It was Africa hot yesterday and it will be for the rest of the week. Guess it is summer! At least we don't have to shovel it!
Have a good day Rose and a big hug,
Carol

Thanks, Carol, I got a text from him last evening, he said he wanted to thank me for going down there to visit and talk, that it meant a lot, and that he loves, me I know he does, I just still worry about him, I know it is very hard, and I want to see/visit as often as I can, but, I can't be there every day. emoticon I also know I should not worry, and just put it in Gods hands, but, I still worry, Thank you so much for your words they do help. I know you have a lot on your plate as well...

I really don't even want to go to Church this morning either, but, I have a lady to pick up, and she expects it on my days I go to Church, I just not in the mood, but, generally, I will most likely feel better. If I do go. Today is late DIL's Birthday, she would be 49, Taken way too young, she should have been a survivor, not a Victim!!

I appreciate you and Joy more than you ever know, Thank you both

Rosie

Rosie, Just keep texting and call when you can too. But the texting is good because it leaves a record. I know this is hard for him right now. I pray that he gets it together for the sake of his daughters and his wonderful Mother!

We had rain last night a thunder storm that went on for over an hour after 10 pm. Dogs were scared, they do not like thunder storms. I felt bad for them. We really needed the rain.

Thinking of you Rosie,
Carol

Got more rain here, today, we have not mowed much this summer either

My son told me a day or so ago that his wife's lie insurance had came but, has to be cleared with the bank. I try to see him as much as I can, and yesterday, he had said I never call, I said, yes, I call sometimes, but there are times, when he does not answer the phone or I have to leave a message. I told him when I left that I would try to call if I could not get down there, and he said try texting him, I said ok, so I texted him today asked him how he's doing said he was doing ok, not doing anything but watching tv like he does everyday. Well, I do have to work some days he did answer my text today, but, not always either. I do try to keep in touch. I told his oldest DD that I just don't like to see him alone, and she said he really hasn't been alone as her or her younger sister has been there, Well, I know he has sent his youngest DD to the store for him as he told me that. But, I do not know what for and she also works, and has friends and a boyfriend that she hangs out with, too. So, I don't know when I am no there, I don't know if anyone else ever calls him either? Thank you for listening/reading

Good Morning Sisters,
Joy my hubby is falling about 4 times a week, much less than he was but it is hard to get him up. I know the feeling. Sorry things are so hard! Mine has cataracts too but not big enough to get fixed, just big enough to be annoying.
I do pay everything online it is most of my bills. I also deposit checks online so I never have to go to the bank. lol
Sounds like you had a wild weekend! My hubby could never do allof that he doesn't leave the house much. He does like to go to Sams club and he can get a riding cart so I try to take him a couple of times a week.
Rosie, you are strong, don't kid yourself. You have been through a lot and you do well. Keep up the good Work, you are a good example for your son.
Big hugs to you both,
Carol

Thanks, Joy and Carol, I don't know, if I am tough or not emoticon I guess I have been through a little bit same as the both of you gals, you both do such a great job, being care givers, to your hubby's and that is what my son did for his wife, still can not believe that she is gone, I hope to get back down to see him maybe after work on Friday, planning on getting a pizza or something and taking it down with me.

Have a good evening, and the trip to Mount Pleasant was a good one.

Rosie, hang in there. I know things are rough sometime with yur job and family.
Carol, glad hbby can walk. Mine is so much worse. Got P.T., O. T., and speech Therapy.starting. Don't know how much it will help. Wentto eye Dr. Mon. Didn't think glasses would help. Said the cataracts were too big.
I pay what bills I can online. Easier on me. Can't pay water online. If I call it in with card it is 2.50. It's local so I try to take it in.
Went to hubby's youngest bros. memorial Sat. Went to Eureka Springs to Passion Play Fri. night and went on to Clinton Sat. Hard on Hubby. About 375 miles. Woudn't stay i n play and they pushed us out and we went to Jeep and it really rained. Dau and GD went and they got soaked. The play is outside. Home after memorial and he fell not long after we got home and I had to call neighbor about 9. He just wouldn't help me. Hated to but don't think they cared at all. God bless, Joy We have been getting a lot of rain

This is my new ticker. I can
t believe I have let myself get this heavy. I just now figured how to change it. jjappleby@pgtc.com

Big hug for you,

I sure hope my son will be alright, I just don't like him being alone, his wife's insurance has not came through, yet, I just do not want any emergencies, like we had 2 weeks ago, Very Scary, to say the least. His youngest dd is still at home, but, she works also, does not help him around the house, much, and will be going to school again, soon, She is in 11th grade.

DD and I are gong down to Mount Pleasant this morning, she has to get some paper work so she can try to sub school this year, I sure hope things work out for her.

Thanks Carol, I need all encouragement I can get, and I am sure you do as well, your hubby is lucky to have you, Have a nice day, I work the next 2 days. ho hum

Rosie, I think his reaction is normal for now. I am sure he will be fine, look at his Mother! HE is lucky to have you.
Hot here too, going to go up to 100 plus later this week. It had been in the 90's for most of the week.
I did the lawn on Monday, I was out early, like 7 am. They are building a house across the street and start at 6:30, so I can go out and mow, they make more noise than me. lol
I usually wait until after 9 am to mow but too hot now.
Day off today and working tomorrow!
Have a great day Rosie,
Carol
