I feel sad that I am getting all this beautiful weather and yours is still being cold and yucky.

Lin snow again is just a bit over the top. It will soon be summer. Love meatloaf. I think smelling it cooking is just about as good as eating it. emoticon

Barb I am glad you had a good meeting with the Dr. and got your Dads comfort sorted out. Lazy nurses should be given the boot. There is no room for them when they are dealing with fragile people. emoticon

Eliza hope you can get a new battery soon and get your car back. You miss them so much when they are not working properly. emoticon

Dorothy poor Mike. I hope his pain is soon under control. It must be so hard for him ....and you. emoticon

Today I went to the Farmers Market with my neighbour and we stopped by a couple of yard sales on the way home. Didn't get anything, just checked out other peoples junk.

Nola - that would be so nice if you could slip away for a couple of days and enjoy it one last time.

Lin - I will tak our drizzle over snow anytime - meatloaf sounds perfect.

Eliza - sorry about your Jag - hang in there - I hope your cold is not too bad.

Barb - glad you and the Dr can agree - sorry about the lazy nurse - why do they become a nurse if they are going to be lazy??

Hubby is in a lot of pain - he can hardly move his left leg or arm and they sent us home with crutches - he is moving as little as possible. We are going to have his shoulder checked again - it is useless. I will call the Drs tomorrow and I will probably have to run home a couple of times to check on him.

Yesterday I cleaned all of the ceiling fans downstairs - 5 of them and the tops of all of my cupboards - they are all so nice and shiny. Right now I am working on my plastic ware - I hate it - it makes me crazy. In a bit I am going to go clean the cabin and hubby thinks he wants to come along but I do not think it is a good idea.

Saturday Ė the meeting w/the Dr. went well yesterday. We came up w/a plan that will hopefully get his pain under control. Have to keep an eye out on his congestive heart failure. Doing another blood test to see what his level is now compared to 3 weeks ago. Personally, I feel he is back in CHF. The Dr. agreed, so upped Dadís Lasix (He is not happy about that, but the Dr. and I both emphasized it will decrease his shortness of breath!)

Also testing him for a urinary tract infection. . . . just precautionary.

Also expecting a call back from the Hospice nurse to get a replacement nurses aide. Lord. I pray that sheís better than this one. I am not one to be initially judgmental, but unfortunately, this one is just plain lazy. What can I say. Thatís all for that one.

Cold, damp, rainy. ACK! At least itís not snow.

Dorothy: Oh no! So sorry to hear that DH has pelvic fractures. So painful! HUGS and sending wishes for a speedy recuperation.

Nola: Yes, the meeting yesterday went well. Fortunately.

I enjoyed getting out of the kitchen!

Well, that would be nice if youíre able to take the RV for a short trip.

Lin: OH no on the snow! That definitely calls for comfort food like meat loaf!

Eliza: glad that you had a good, but cold, day yesterday.

Sad to hear about your car, but hope you will be able to repair it soon.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Eliza--glad your floor is fixed! have a peaceful weekend!
Nola--I was sad when we had to let our camper-truck go, we enjoyed getting out so much!
snowing here today, high predicted for 35. we've already had about 4", probably get a couple more before it is done. Soooo glad I went to the gym and grocery store yesterday. Meatloaf and baked stuffed mushrooms for today! emoticon

Dorothy so sorry to hear Mike has the fractures. Hope he is comfortable. It is going to be a long 4-6 weeks. emoticon

Barb I hope the meeting with the Dr went well. Awesome getting out for a meal with Jason and NO kitchen duties. Thinking of you. emoticon

Eliza great the floor is fixed and right finally. Have a lovely Sunday. Is it the Monastery this weekend? emoticon

Another magic day today. I shampooed the seats in the RV. We decided today we still may take it out for a trip if it is slow selling and we can squeeze a few days in sometime. emoticon

Nola - I think my mom has made peace with the fact when its time it is time. But I am truly grateful that she is still very active. Good luck on finishing the RV.

Eliza - yea for the floor being done!

Barb - hope you enjoyed your breakfast and supper out with Jas. And that the Dr appointment went to.

I love my new hair cut. Then I spent the rest of the night in the ER with my hubby - he flipped over his yard cart yesterday and has managed to fracture his ramus of left pubis and his interior pubic ramus - so no wight bearing for him the next 4 to 6 weeks.

Friday Ė Have a meeting w/the Dr. this morning, so this will be short. Going to go over what we can do for Dad to make him more comfortable and decrease his anxiety. **SIGH** Going to be a long morning.

Jas is working from home today, so thatís a good thing We were going to go to breakfast, but have to be @ the facility earlier than planned, so weíre going to go out to supper. Wa and Hoo on that. No cooking.

HUGS

Dorothy: Yes, never take any loved oneís health for granted.

Have a good time w/the hair cuts. Nice to be pampered. Then itís getting the hair to look like the hair dresser does!

Nola: I donít think youíll be disappointed with an automatic.

Good luck cleaning the RV.

Yes, have to honor Dadís wishes. He knows best.

Eliza: Yeah on the floor being done properly.

HUGS

Barb enjoy today with Jason at home. It is hard when our loved ones don't want to prolong their lives. As I get older I accept it much better than when I was younger. Hope the time without Jason just flashes by. Perhaps the sun will come back this weekend emoticon

Lin that was one of my worries about the automatic is the lack of me being in control of the gears. I must be a control freak emoticon But yesterday convinced my shoulders that it was the way to go for the next car. emoticon

Eliza I hope your floor is looking good again. emoticon

Dorothy I can understand the benefit of the short rentals. People long term can do so much damage.I just can't understand people not respecting other peoples property. You will be feeling good after your haircut. emoticon

Today we got stuck into the cleaning of the RV. Should finish the inside tomorrow. Then it can be shut down. Then it is on to the outside. emoticon

Eliza - I hate when a job is not done right - I hope they make it better.

Lin - glad you enjoyed lunch with friends. I actually do like renting it out this way better - there is still a little damage now and then but nothing like it use to be when renting it yearly.

Nola - good choice going with automatic. I have driven stick shifts but much prefer automatic. Hope Don is doing well. The majority of the inside painting is done - now i have some trim work outside that needs to be refreshed.

Barb - emoticon I know I get sad when my mom talks about dying - she is in good shape but I do not take it for granted. I hope you and Jas have a good day today - as well as mom and dad.

Hair cuts for Michael and I today.

Thursday Ė well, no frantic calls so far so must have been a good night. I pray so! Waiting to hear back from the Dr. I suspect Dadís had and is having transient ischemic attacks (mini-strokes). He has mood swings, cannot think of words, his speech is slurred. At present being in hospice, there would be no other treatment for this except aspirin daily and a mood stabilizer. Dad really does not want his life prolonged. **SIGH** Hard sentence to type, but have to honor his wishes. Just want him comfortable and less anxious.

Rainy here, still. Think itís supposed to continue most of the day.

Jas will be off tomorrow, so looking forward to that. Then on Monday he goes out of town. Boooo!

HUGS and hereís to Thursday.

Dorothy: Rain here, too. Cold. UGH.

Eliza: Sorry that you had a bad job done on the floor. **SIGH** Thatís tough. Hope the 2nd time Ďround they do it right.

Nola: Oh, I learned how to drive a stick shift, but SURE prefer automatic. All cars Iíve had are automatic. Way to go.

Definitely need something ďmedicinalĒ! UGH

Lin: Glad you had a good time @ lunch! And itís always fun to meet new people Fresh veggies . . canít do w/o them!

Nola--I owned standard shifts until around 2003. My only regret with an automatic is the lack of control with the gears! But my back and hips love it!

Eliza--repairs are so stressful! I'm glad they are coming back to fix their mistakes

Dorothy--it is good you get such turn around, I'm glad it is something you enjoy!

Barb-- emoticon emoticon emoticon you are an angel for your Mom and Dad now, they are blessed with your care

I take the O2 whenever I go out, lunch out gave me a chance to get to know some new folks and was fun. Today I need to go shopping for some fresh veggies!

After the afternoon driving an automatic car we have definitely decided that this is the way to go when we get our other car.

Eliza that must have been awful seeing the floor not fixed right. I am glad they are coming back to fix it. emoticon

Dorothy is that "it" now with the rental painting? emoticon Hope you get lots of sunshine today

Barb I hope you are feeling better. It must be awful each day not knowing what you are going to find when you visit your Mom and Dad. No wonder you get a headache. Here is a little something for medicinal purposes of course emoticon emoticon

Good Morning!

Nola - I hope you enjoyed your break with the lunch with a friend. Nice that you are able to find a place for all of the stuff from the RV.

Eliza - good look with the renovations.

Barb - it is suppose to rain here this afternoon - but it should be in the 80's - yesterday was sunny and in the 70's. The only bad thing about this gorgeous weather is that I know it is going to dip next week back into the 50's and 60's.

Lin - I really do not mind the cleaning - once you get it down to a formula it goes quickly and most people do not leave a mess.

Painted the landing yesterday - the first coat anyways and opened all of the windows in the rental - I bet it smells so good over there right now. I love fresh air.

Not sure how I missed stopping by yesterday - I pulled the rug off of the landing at the rental on Tuesday night. Right now I need to hop into the shower as I need to go buy some cat food before work.

Wednesday Ė Apparently Monday night was NOT a good night as when I got there yesterday Dad was in a state. Got things straightened out, but came away with a headache. **SIGH** I hope today is better!

Rained last night. Supposed to rain off and on all day today. Guess we need a little though.

HUGS and hereís to a wonderful Wednesday.

Nola: Glad you had a good day w/friends. Awesome.

**SIGH** Wish there was sun to soak up today. Alas, itís raining. But guess we need a little.

Have fun w/your friend today!

Had a good day today. A beautiful day and a lovely lunch at our friends home. It was great to go out and do a bit of socializing.

Barb good to have things under control for your Dad. One down one to go!! Love your choice of movies.......enjoy!! I hope you have some time to soak up the sun emoticon

Eliza WOW maybe getting a whole new room. Apart from all the noise and mess getting there that would be terrific. emoticon

Lin did you have a lovely luncheon. Do you take your O2 with you?

Dorothy is that Rental clean. That is so good you are getting clients straight away. emoticon

Tomorrow I am going out with my friend to have a drive of her automatic car. Have never driven automatic cars, only on odd occasions, always manual transmissions. Because of my dodgy shoulders we want to go automatic when we sell the RV and get a new car.

Tuesday Ė Yesterday was a nice day. Got lots done outside. A bit on the cool side, but the sun was out, so . . . . perfect!

Glad that things seem to be straightened out for Dad. Talked to the Hospice nurse and think that we have a pain management approach that is going to work for Dad.

Spring is popping. I am liking that!

Dorothy: No, Dad is not catching a break. **SIGH** Going in a little bit to visit them.

Cool here, still, but sun is out. Iíll take it.

OH NO on the not so good nutritionist visit.

Nola: Yes, more girly flicks on Monday! All ready! Going to watch UP (love that movie), Sweet Home Alabama, Moonstruck.

Yes, the leg swelling is annoying @ best! Will get those feet elevated when I go. He wonít like it, but has to be done.

I am sure itís sad to unload the RV, but youíre obviously doing whatís right for Don and you.í

Have a great time tomorrow @ lunch.

Eliza: Hope that if extensive repairs are needed that theyíre done quickly.í

Lin: Hope itís a good Tuesday!

Dorothy Those pesky little M and Ms have a way of coming back and biting you on the bum. Never mind perhaps a better result with the Nutritionist next time. emoticon

Barb sounds like more girly flicks on Monday night. Is jason gone for long this time? I hope not.
Your poor Dad swollen legs must be so sore and uncomfortable for him. I hope it is warm enough to get him outside today. emoticon

Today was quiet. We did get the RV emptied and all the stuff put away and not just dumped somewhere. Tomorrow we are going to lunch with one of Dons fishing buddies and his wife which will be nice.Then we will get on with the cleaning of the RV.

Nola - hope you enjoy your holiday. and are feeling better today. Leaves are so hard to keep up with. emoticon

Barb - poor dad - he is just not getting a break. Good thing you are keeping an eye on him. We had another beautiful day here yesterday but today is suppose to be a bit cooler and rain.

Eliza - water can cause so much damage - sorry about the leak and the repairs.

Not a good trip to the nutritionist again yesterday - darn M&M's. Tonight I need to clean the rental.

Monday Ė good visit with mom and dad yesterday. Made dad put his legs up, though, as his legs are very swollen and I an concerned about that. Have to talk w/the therapist about lymphatic massage to help with this.

It was a nice day, but a bit chilly w/the wind. I know Dad wanted to go outside, but it was just too chilly.

Well on with the work week schedule! Jas goes out of town next Monday, so have a few things to get done before he goes.

HUGS

Dorothy: It is really frightening to me to think of those who do not have an advocate! I am just glad I can do it for my parents.

Wow . . . beautiful weather and gardening . . . perfect!

Bet your mom enjoyed going to your Nephewís b-day party!

Nola: Oh boy, Autumn is doing itís ďthingĒ by you now. But I do love Autumn. Just donít like the season that FOLLOWS!

OMG, the wheels. . . move . . . . tortuously slow! But I am not giving up.

Ah yes, ANZAC day. May it be a peaceful day of remembrance for you.

Eliza: Oh no on the leak and damage. I can only imagine the mess with tearing down a wall. Hope all goes quickly and smoothly, or at least as smoothly as these things can go!

HUGS ladies.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Nice to hear your weather is at last getting warmer. Good you can all get out into it. We had another beautiful day as well. Had the flu shot and for the first time ever I felt a bit "off" after it, so just took it easy for the rest of the day. emoticon

Dorothy love to think of you out in the garden. The grape leaves are keeping me busy, I just get them done then look around and there they are again. Would love a strong wind and hope all of them came down in one go and then that would be it. emoticon

Barb it is so good that you are there for your parents every day. You are so special. The wheels seem to be turning so slowly re the bar for your Mom. I guess if you stir them up too much they could take it out on your Mom and Dad and you wouldn't even know. It is so hard.!! Stay strong! emoticon

We have ANZAC day tomorrow. Remembering all the Australians and New Zealanders that have fought in all the conflicts since Federation. It is a public holiday and there will be a lot of Dawn Services and parades. emoticon emoticon

Barb - I can not imagine anyone being in any health care facility with no one to stand up for them - it must be a nightmare. Your mom and dad are so lucky to have you.

It was gorgeous here yesterday - made it to 70. I worked out in my gardens - and then helped a neighbor rake her leaves. After I showered I took my mom to my nephews birthday party. I do not know why I am so tired this morning emoticon

Sunday Ė Nice day yesterday. The sun was out, it was windy, but the temp was comfortable . . . about 54F. Not bad.

Went out to supper and that was wonderful. No kitchen duties! Hurray for miracles.

Blessings and hugs.

Nola: How nice that that stump was dug out and you got the wood stacked. Youíre ready for your winter.

I am just livid. The problem is, the facilities in this area are all about the same or even worse than what Mom and Dad are in. **SIGH** But I do feel in my heart that Mom and Dad are lots safer that I go there every day than those folks w/nobody to visit them except occasionally. THE STAFF KNOWS MY FACE and they know I will not beat around the bush. Just biding my time till we get the permission to put the rail back on Momís bed. It will happen!

Glad youíre getting your flu shots. The flu season here this winter was WICKED bad. Donít want to take chances.

Dorothy: Yes, thank God for that mat, which I fought for! GRRrrrr.

I hope that giving Dad the aspirin early helps, too. Am going to bring an ice pack, too, since apparently they didnít have any and who knows what century theyíd get one!

Awww, glad you enjoyed the grandies. Always uplifting.

Eliza: Hope the wind died down.

Lin: How are you doing?

Nola - glad you enjoyed son #2 and your grand daughter. At least saw dust is good for gardens. Hubby has a air compressor so was able to get the mattress blown up - emoticon And he went over to start cleaning for me yesterday before I got home.

The tornado touched down about 10 miles from her but did not do too much damage. They really are not common around here but we have seemed to get hit by them the last few years - but they seem to hit in small spots and then leave. Nothing like out west.

I hope all goes well with the cleaning out of the RV - too bad you could not take it out one last time. Maybe you should just camp in own back yard emoticon

Barb - poor mom - that God for the mat. How wonderful she was able to introduce you as her daughter. I would hate to loose my independence - I so feel for your dad. I hope giving him the aspirin early helps.

I need to go down and check on my mom - I am going to do that soon - she has not answered the last couple of times that I called - I am sure that she was outside but I still need to go check.

The grand children were good - I just love them to pieces. Trevor who will soon be 5 told me one time that Kiarah broke his heart - he is just too cute. And Thomas is growing so fast and is as sharp as can be at 7 months old.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Missed yesterday sorry. James and Charli stayed until quite late. It was great to see them. While he was here James took out a huge stump about 6' high of a big tree Don dropped about 3 years ago. It was now all dry and ready for firewood. So it was all taken down and cut up into blocks and today I have been stacking it in the shed and getting rid of the sawdust which is all over the place.

Barb that is so neglectful of the Facility not to get their act together about your Mom falling. What a worry. It must stress your Dad out and he must feel so helpless. Thank God for the mat. Sounds a good idea to give him his aspirin early. I hope they remember, it may make all the difference. That must have made your heart sing when your Mom introduced you as her daughter. emoticon

Eliza I hope the wind dies down. It must be awful having so much of it. Wind makes me really ratty. At least the wind will make your towels lovely and soft and fluffy. emoticon

Dorothy I hope you are having a great weekend, with a bit of this emoticon

Tomorrow a new week begins. Ours starts with us getting our flu shots. emoticon

Friday Ė Rainy night again. Cooler today, but still . . . not bad.

Yesterday while @ Mom and Dadís visiting, they had a tornado drill. YIKES. Got all the residents (and us TWO visitors into safe rooms in under 3 minutes! GREAT!!!!

Dad did indeed have difficulty eating this morning. He has such extreme pain when he gets out of bed. So, Iíve worked with the staff to give him his Aspirin around 4 am so itís donít ďitís thingĒ by the time he gets up. So, weíll see how it goes tomorrow.

**SIGH SIGH SIGH** Got a call @ 4:15 am (yup . . . . good darned thing I was already up and functioning!). Mom fell again. . . no injuries, though as she fell ON THE MAT. Oh I think I may just re-visit what a good thing it is that I insisted on that and GETTING THE DARNED RAIL BACK ON HER BED!

BUT . . . on major thing did happen. Mom actually introduced me as her DAUGHTER to a staff member (that I already knew, but that's besides the point!) Made me cry. It has been about 3 yrs. now since she's known me as her daughter.

So glad itís Friday!

Hugs

Dorothy: Yup . . . Mom is a stinker! LOLOL That was what HER Mom always told her. Huh . . . imagine that! She hasnít changed her temperament! LOL But, thatís a good thing. Served her well for 88 yrs. Thatís not all bad!

As for Dad, **SIGH** some of these things heís just going to have to learn to accept, unfortunately. He is completely, utterly, hopelessly TYPE A (huh, wonder if I inherited that from him! ) and being dependent is really not easy for him. I donít blame him, but he has to accept the help. Gradually he is.

Hope you get the bed issue sorted out. **SIGH**

Glad youíre safe! Tis the season for severe storms and tornados. Have to be prepared.

Nola: Yes, I wanted to get there for his breakfast today, but just couldnít make it.

Good luck clearing the RV. I remember when my parents went thru that. Hope you have an easy time selling it.

Enjoy your visit with son #2 and GD Charli (love that name!)

Dorothy stay safe with the thunderstorms and tornadoes. Tornadoes sound so scary. Hope you found a pump for the air mattress.

Barb I guess you could say your Mom was at least being busy and exercising while she was sorting her clothes. Hope your Dad comes good with his eating breakfast. It is a worry.

Today we started thinking about our plan of attack for getting the RV ready for sale. I have to find a place to put all the "stuff"when I unpack it. James #2 son is coming up tomorrow to get some other things he wants which will make quite a big space. GD Charli is driving him up to get a few more hours of driving for her license. It will be lovely to have them here.

Apart from that usual peaceful day here. Have a lovely Friday emoticon

Nola - I will look forward to tranquil days - I need them. Hope all of Dons appointments go well.

Barb - your mom is a stinker - emoticon - is it pay back emoticon Glad to hear that she was in a good mood. Hope you can get dads issues straightened out.

Cleaning the cabin was a breeze. But when I went to set up the extra bed in the house I had problems. I have a anywhere bed that is a frame with an air mattress on it and my electric pump is not working emoticon Now i need to figure how to get it pumped up. And on top of tha my daughter asked if i could stay with the kids tonight as her hubby and her have a viewing and a memorial service to attend. I can't wait to go but this bed is making me crazy.

Oh and we had severe thunder storms last night and were under a tornado watch - yikes!

Thursday Ė Mom and Dad were in good spirits yesterday. Dad is apparently having some difficulty feeding himself in the morning, so I am going to try to get there tomorrow morning early to see whatís going on. He does fine @ lunch and supper. I think he must just have lots of pain in the morning.

Mom was busy emptying drawers and ďlooking the clothes over.Ē Lord, took me 1 hr. to get it cleaned and in order again. But she was in a good mood. So be it.

Rained all night but hoping we get a bit of a break today.

Hugs

Yes, the daffodils, jonquils and hyacinths are all poked up now.

Good luck Ė hope you get that extra bed set up!

Nola: Glad your days are tranquil. Very glad to hear that Don is feeling well. Thatís wonderful that all is well in re: the sleep apnea!

Catch up w/yíall later.

Barb I hope you found your Mom and Dad happy. There is nothing like a hair trim to make a person feel better. Enjoy your bulbs and plants popping up. emoticon

Dorothy our days are tranquil at the moment. It is all part of getting old. Everything gets into go slow mode. It is good Don is feeling well at the moment. It certainly makes a difference to my stress levels.

This morning was taken up getting to and from a Don appt at the sleep apnea Specialist. He has to go about 3 times a year just to check up all is well, which it was. So that was good!! The rest of the day was just doing catch up. emoticon

Nola - your days sounds so tranquil - a day I would love to have. So nice to be able to sit outside and rad and to poke in the gardens.

Barb - our daffodils have peaked - so much green poking through the earth - I just love this time of year and finding all of my plants that I have planted.

I hope you find mom and dad well. Sounds like yesterday was a day well spent. emoticon emoticon

I need to clean the cabin after work today and then set up an extra bed in the rental. So I will be hustling. Yesterday I started to work in the garden some more and it started to rain so I did a few chores in the house and called it a day. Now I wished I would have set up the extra bed.

Wednesday Ė For only the 2nd time since January I didnít get to see my parents yesterday. Had to get Mr. Spot to the groomer and I got my hair cut. Nice.

It was a nice day in the 60ís and had some peeks of sun. The grass is really greened up. Looks nice. And lots of buds on the trees, blooming crocus and jonquils and daffodils. The tulips are starting to poke thru, too. Spring is springing.

Well, onward. Busy day. Have to stop by Mom and Dadís early. Want to see how Dad does with breakfast as the nurse was saying he has a hard time feeding himself @ breakfast. He does fine @ other meals, just not strong apparently in the morning.

Hugs

Dorothy: Oh believe me, I surely needed the grooming! LOL Feels better.

Glad you got to work in the garden!

Nola: Yes, I was beginning to feel kinda scruffy-like! Mr. Spot does very well w/the grooming. She is very good w/him.

Glad you had a beautiful day!

I bet Mr Spot and you are feeling spiffy with your hair do. Does mr Spot mind going to the groomer? emoticon

Dorothy you sound as though you had a lovely day in the garden. It is so relaxing.You certainly buzz around getting the cabin and the rental ready, doing the gardening and working as well, not to mention being a mum etc etc etc. emoticon

Eliza Your Easter sounded beautiful and peaceful. We sat outside in the shade and read a lot of the time.

We had another beautiful day today. It is really a lovely time of the year. Spent some time in the garden and just poking around.

Hope your Thursday is beautiful!

Eliza - I agree - what ever works for you. And actually we had our Easter on Friday and I worked around the house on Easter.

Barb - oh nooo!!!I am glad she was not hurt and was not fazed by it. I think it will do you god to take a day for you and Mr Spot to both get groomed emoticon

Nola - hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

I did get to work in the rentals gardens yesterday and did it feel good - oh how I love to get my hands in the dirt. Hopefully I can finish the area I worked on yesterday today - if the rain holds off.

Tuesday: Well, the phone rang yesterday morning. Mom fell out of bed AGAIN! But she fell on the mat, no injuries. When I saw her in the afternoon she was in good spirits and nothing hurt. GRRRrr. If that letter from DHS to return her farmed rail on the bed doesnít get processed soon, I am going to scream!

Otherwise, sunny, but cool day, so couldnít get Mom and Dad outside.

Getting my hair cut and Mr. Spot is getting groomed. Weíll look gorgeous!

Hope itís a terrific day.

Nola: Have to agree. Outside work is much more appealing than housework!

It is just up and down with them. BUT today I am taking a break and getting my hair cut and Mr. Spot groomed. Need a break.

OH boy, thatís big to talk about . . . selling the RV. I remember when my folks did that. It is the sensible thing to do if there are more cons to keeping it than pros.

Dorothy: Uh oh on the nutritionist visit. Better luck next time.

Glad the cabin is ready for the next guests.

Eliza: Itís all about what makes us happy! And you had a good Easter, so there you go.

Nola - so sad that you are thinking of selling it but it makes sense - I know my dad was very sad when he had to sell his but his health was getting in the way and he was having spells. I am with you on I would rather do outside work than house work.

Barb - sorry it was a rough day - hopefully today will be better. Your walk sounds so lovely.

The nutritionist visit was not as good as I had hoped for - I am thinking it was the wine emoticon emoticon But the cabin is already for my next guests. I am thinking of working in the gardens after work today.

Have just finished mowing the lawns and raking up grape leaves. It was a beautiful day to be outside and I feel all relaxed and sunny. I much prefer that sort of work than housework. emoticon emoticon

Barb sorry to hear your parents had a not so good day. I hope today is better. Lovely having beautiful weather and being able to get out for a walk with Jason. Does the soul good!!

Dorothy how did you get on with your nutritionist?

Nothing much to report. We are talking about selling the RV, now Don has to have regular appointments. it is a lot of money to Register and insure it and it is just sitting in the yard getting older. We would buy a bigger more comfortable car as my little Hyundi which I love is getting increasingly hard to get in and out of as we get older and we are both very tall. It is still only in the discussion stage. emoticon

Monday: Had a low key Sunday. Visited my parents and unfortunately, neither Mom nor Dad were having a good day. UGH. Hoping today is a better day for them.

We did have a nice Easter. Jas and I went for a walk on a local walking trail. Nice day. Sunny, wasm, beautiful.

Thatís about all the news that is fit to print from here. Back to the routine of the work week today.

Dorothy: Sounds like a wonderful Easter!

Yes, it was a gorgeous weekend. I am so thankful. I am glad that Mom and Dad could get outside.

Nola: Wonderful to meet other families going thru the same things/issues. **SIGH** Itís not easy, but a little comforting to know youíre not alone!

So happy to hear youíll have another visit form Cheyenne and that Don is doing well. HUGS!

Eliza: Hope you had a blessed Easter.

Dorothy what a beautiful Easter you had with your family. I think you remember these kind of times for ever.

Barb great to see 70 hope it keeps going. That must have been good spending the day with your parents and meeting some of the other families. A cookout sounds just the thing for a restful day. Relax and enjoy. emoticon

We had a lovely day. Barney had a clip and is looking smart. Cheyenne rang up and is coming back towards the end of the week. We are going to do some driving so she can get some more hours up. Don continues to improve so all is well with my world.

Sorry I was MIA - life was very hectic around here. I took a half a day of Thursday - finished shopping and cleaned the house and the first wave of my company arrived. So we sat and visited and others kept coming and joining in. It was so nice to have the rental open so everyone had a bed to sleep in. The Easter Egg hunt went well and everyone had fun. I had an Early Easter dinner here and my mom joined us. Friday after lunch my oldest daughter and her kids headed home as did Rebecca. Mylinda stayed on with her 3 kids which was nice as I got to enjoy Thomas more. - he is getting so big so fast and Trevor cracks me up - he is so funny. Melissa arrived on Saturday and we got to visit and Mylinda headed home with her kids. Melissa spent the night and she headed home yesterday morning,. So i was able to get 1 of my garden beds cleaned and get the rental cleaned for guests on Wednesday - tonight I will go see my nutritionist and clean the cabin and get it ready for the next guests. I am tired but happy.

Barb - I am happy to hear that your last several days have been clam and enjoyable - happy to hear that mom and dad have been doing well and that you and Jason have been able to spend time together. We had beautiful weather here as well and were able to spend a lot of time outside.

Nola - as always I am envious to hear that you were able toe at under your grapevines - it sounds so lovely - and nice that you had a great visit with friends and that Don has been doing well.

Eliza - it sounds like you had a lovely Easter and enjoyed the wonderful services that they have this time of year - God Bless.

Sunday: Turned out to be a beautiful day. Got up to 70. Was able to take Mom and Dad out and Dad really enjoyed it. Well, Mom did, too, but especially Dad.

I was sad that Dad was having back pain, though. Finally got him to take some Tylenol and he was more comfortable.

The luncheon surprised me a bit. I figured it would be ham but the entrťe was turkey. Served w/boxed potatoes and Stove Top Stuffing. There was asparagus as well. I could eat the asparagus. The turkey, unfortunately, was pretty salty. But everyone else seemed to enjoy it. I am just sensitive to the taste of salt.

Dessert was cherry cheese cake. I couldnít have that either but everyone seemed to enjoy it. That was all right. I got to meet several other families whom Iíd not met before. That was nice. I did enjoy that.

After the luncheon we sat on the little patio and Dad and Mom soaked up the sunshine.

So, it was a nice Saturday. That was our Easter. We will probably have our very first cook out today Ė just not up for cooking a huge meal for the 3 of us. I think part of it is just remembering that Mom and Dad were here with us last year @ this time. Anyhow, just a low key day.

Blessings and Happy Easter if you celebrate.

Nola; Glad you had a beautiful day. Glad you got to visit w/some friends. Thatís nice.

I ate a little of the turkey (an odd choice for Easter) and the asparagus. Otherwise, skipped the rest. That was all right. My aim was socializing.


Eliza: Hope itís a blessed Easter.

Dorothy: Hope you have a blessed Easter, too.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Easter Sunday is nearly done. We had another beautiful day outside just relaxing. I missed being here yesterday. We had unexpected friends call in. We hadn't seen them for ages. They ended up staying for our evening meal which was great. It was quite a late night but good to see them.

Eliza it would have been lovely at Church today. I love the Easter services.

Barb so good you and Jason are getting some together time again. How was the lunch at your Mom and Dads facility. That is a great idea to get the families together. I hope everyone one had someone to visit.

Dorothy I hope your Easter is going beautifully.

Have a lovely day everyone emoticon

Saturday Ė Had a nice lunch yesterday w/ Jason after he finished his work project. It was nice to get away . . . . just the 2 of us.

Mom and Dad had a pretty good day today. I was pleased about that, too.

Today is a lunch @ Mom and Dadís facility. It will be nice just to relax a little and see other families.

Supposed to get up to 70 today. We shall see! I hope so.

Eliza: Glad you slept in . . . . yes, it seems you needed the rest!

Barb how lovely Jason will be working from home for a couple of days a week. That will be so good especially during the winter Good your Mom and Dad had a good day, I hope it continues.

Eliza did you have a lovely Good Friday service. emoticon

Dorothy how did the Easter egg hunt go?

We had a lovely Good Friday. The weather was perfect for lunching under the grape vines which are fast losing their leaves.I made crusted salmon for lunch, a new recipe and it was delicious.
In the afternoon we sat outside and read. All very peaceful.

Thursday Ė Mom and Dad had a good day yesterday, so that makes ME happy.

Jas is all settled in now in his office. Heíll be able to work from home 1-2 days/week, which is a godsend as far as saving on some travel time.

Thatís about all the news thatís fit to print from here.


Dorothy: Glad that you got your groceries and that the house is in good shape. PHEW.

Nola: Lovely Easter to you as well.

Nola - I find it funny that things we loved to do when younger no longer appeal to us - sitting in your back yard sounds perfect to me as well.

I did not get my shopping done - I did get my groceries though. I will venture out today to finish - my house is in pretty good shape so that is good. I did get the deck cleaned off last night - now to keep it that way. Hubby loves to pile up junk everywhere.

Thanks for updating us on Wendy and sending her our love. Happy to hear that she is doing well.

Eliza -= sounds like good Easter plans to me.

Barb -hopefully it won't take long for dad to adjust to the bed.

Wednesday Ė Dad got his bed. It wasnít what he thought it would be (have no idea what he thought it would be!) but I told him to get used to it for a few days. Has am air mattress on it and it cycles. I think he has to get used to that sound of the whooshing air.

Cold yesterday. But will eventually warm up!

Dorothy: good luck finishing your Easter shopping.

Nola: So happy that Wendy got the all clear on the lymph nodes. Hallelujah!

Eliza: Hope those winds are dying down.

HUGS ladies. Have a good Wednesday.

Had a text from Wendy today. She is doing well after having the Melanoma and some lymph glands removed, and got the "all clear" from the Specialist yesterday. So that is good news. I replied that we were all thinking about her and sent everybody's love.

Went food shopping today. I always forget we are a tourist spot, and with school holidays and Easter the shops were chokkers. When will I ever learn.

Dorothy I hope the weather stays good for your Easter Egg hunt. Easter is the big Camping weekend in Oz. The weather is usually perfect and people go off in droves. We used to do that with the kids, but now we let them go and our back yard is looking pretty good for a nice Don and Nola relaxing time.

Barb good Jason got home safely. Sad you couldn't get your Mom and Dad out. Hope the Easter forecast is good and they can get out in the fresh air and different scenery. emoticon

Lin and Eliza what are your Easter plans?? emoticon

Nola - it always makes it hard to have a "princess" - lol! I am glad it went with her there. And so happy to hear that Don is doing well. emoticon

Barb - sorry to hear that you were not able to get mom and dad back out. It was cloudy and rainy here but suppose to be sunny today - but on the cool side. I am happy that they are predicting decent weather for Friday as it is the Easter egg Hunt.

Glad that Jas made it home safe and sound even if he was tired.

I ran errands last night after work and felt like I was chasing my tail - I have to get groceries tonight and try to finish up Easter shopping.

Tuesday Ė Well thought Iíd be able to get Mom and Dad out again today. NOPE. As I drove the short distance from home to their facility the temperature started plummeting and the winds began to whip! So, by the time I got there it was also starting to cloud up and too cold to take them out. Bummer!

Otherwise, was concerned that the weather would delay Jasonís flight form Denver to home. But the storms did ďtake a breakĒ and he landed safely. Thank goodness!

Thatís about all the news thatís fit to print.

Dorothy: Yes, Mom and Dad both enjoyed my Uncle and his wifeís visit.

Sounds like you have a busy day!

Nola: So happy Donís eye is doing well. PHEW.

Jas did get back safe and sound. TIRED, though.

Oh boy, thereís always a princess in the crowd, isnít there! But glad the visit went well.

Lin: Hope itís a good day for you today.

Doing the happy dance. Dons eye is going good. No allergic reaction to anything so far. I only realized how uptight I was getting expecting something to happen. So all is good at the moment.

Barb I hope Jas got back safely. Lovely to have a visit from your Aunt and Uncle. Your parents would have liked that.

Dorothy Jasmin is a "princess" . She is the hardest of all the GDs to get on with. We try not to show it, but I always hold my breath when she comes to visit. emoticon

Have fun preparing for Easter emoticon

Eliza The Shower sounded lovely. Great meeting up with relatives that you hadn't met. emoticon

Lin that sounds like hard work 26 units a day. Those low beds I bet your back was aching. I have done that at some times in my life to help pay the bills. Not my favourite occupation. emoticon

Have a lovely Tuesday emoticon

Nola - glad to hear that all went well for Don - I hope he is doing well with the drops - I had forgotten how many eye drops were involved.

Who was more traumatized?? Barney or Jasmin?? Good thing Cheyenne was there.

Eliza - glad the shower was fun all of the family came out of the wood work emoticon

Lin - it is so nice when you are able to get out and walk. 26 units - that is a lot of cleaning. I have a pretty good routine going with the cabin - now to just find a good routine with the house. Most people leave them in good shape.

Barb - how nice that your moms brother and his wife came to visit your mom and dad. I bet they all enjoyed it.

I hope Jas got home safe and sound.

The nutritionist went well - I was down. And she always has good info to pass on.

I only worked 1/2 day and decided to get a bit of Easter shopping done and got the cabin cleaned before I went to the nutritionist. When I got home I went over to the rental and got the linens and wiped things down - they left it in pretty good shape. Not sure what I will get into today - I will have to go buy cat food - maybe I can get more stuff for Easter - I also want to drop some stuff off a the consignment shop.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Lord - grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.

Weather in Denver was perfect this weekend except a little windy last night. Hope Jason was able to enjoy some of it Barb and that you got a good night's rest!
Nola the eye drops can be a pain, but well worth the effort, sleep well, you will need it emoticon
Eliza, sounds like the making of a perfect day
Dorothy, I worked with a nutritionist for a couple of months and the best thing for me was her scale that showed fat loss. Hope she helps you more. Not sure I would want rentals, my parents bought a motel when I was 12 and I got to clean all 26 units daily........
I spent yesterday resting and making a crockpot of red turkey chili. Friday night I went to a show downtown Denver and walked outside more than I have in a long time. It was great, I enjoyed, but my right hip and back talked back.......all better today and no wind, I may venture out later...... emoticon

Just home. Don is good so far. Hope all these drops he has agree with him. Have to be back in town early tomorrow for the follow up appt with the eye specialist. The girls go tomorrow. The Barney sitting went well. Jasmin and Barney have a Mexican stand off. Jasmin doesn't like dogs and Barney knows it. That goodness for Cheyenne. emoticon

I need to get to bed it has been a very long day. I'll catch up tomorrow. emoticon

Nola - I hope all is well with you and the family.

Eliza - I bet mom enjoyed her excursion out,

Barb - I am glad to hear that it is all happening. Hope Jason's meeting go smoothly.
Sunny weekend here and sunny and warm again today - wish it was here to stay.

I see my nutritionist today, plus both rentals need cleaned - still trying to figure out what to do. I will be half way to the cabin while with the nutritionist so I just may pop up there and get it taken care of.
