Wednesday – well, gorgeous out and got lots of pruning done. Looks like we’ve lost our 2 yew trees in front. **SIGH**

Very confused day for Mom yesterday. Hoping that rest overnight will help.

Nola: Glad Don’s blood-letting is done. And glad that you had a decent ultrasound report. Good luck @ the Red Cross Shop!

I am amazed @ how well Mom does on puzzles. Puts her in a good frame of mind, so it’s all good!

Nicole: Good you’re doing well @ JCP. It does require a new routine! Good luck w/the family things. **SIGH**

Karen: Hope your Mom is doing better. Sorry about the vacation cancel. **SIGH**

Hugs to everyone and out the door. Mr. Spot gets groomed! He doesn’t like it but he’s a good boy.

Yesterday, I worked JCP from 1:30 to 9:15 (9:30 really). Did a lot of register transactions, straightening of the clothes racks and folded clothes on shelves, and learned a lot. My feet were so SORE by the end of the night! I wore comfy shoes, but I need to find better ones. Ones that I could wear to an amusement park!

Today, I will be catching up with things around the house, teaching a few flute lessons, and dealing with some family stuff. Not looking forward to the last part.

****************************************

BARB - I'm glad your Dell is everything you'd hoped for! I love going to GoodWill; you never know what treasures you might find.

DOROTHY – I would love a pedi! Especially would have loved one last night, after all those hours on my feet!

KAREN – How disappointing to have to cancel your vacation, but it is the right thing to do. Hopefully, you can reschedule it for another time soon.

NOLA – Wow, they sure give you the results from ultrasound quickly! Great that you know what it is, and what you need to do.

Wednesday is nearly over for me and it has been busy. Don had the yucky blood day and he is resting. I went to get my ultrasound report and it is still Arthritis and only minimal damage. So I must get my resistance band out and start working the muscles again. I have been a bit slack of late, so I must hop to it. Tomorrow is Red Cross Shop in the morning then house taming in the afternoon. emoticon

Karen I hope the sun is shining at your place, and you and your Mom can sit out and get some Rays emoticon

Barb great to get some more puzzles for your Mom and you. I have just given a stack to the RC shop. We used to always have one on the go in other homes, but here it is more outside and computers.

Dorothy did you float around the golf course after the Pedi? emoticon

Wendy have you had a good day?

Nicole, Tricia and Eliza Hugs coming your way emoticon

Tuesday – nice day! Sunny but cool. Got to Good Will w/Mom and she got 4 puzzles. Hurray!

Otherwise, pretty standard day (well, for whatever is standard here anymore! LOL)

Dorothy: have to agree with you, it’s not that warm here either. Hope you get your pedi.

Karen: Major hugs . . . it’s not easy being caregiver!

Nola: Glad that the chores are caught up and the nurse has been there already! Good luck w/the ultrasound of the shoulder.

Yes, I love writing and that’s something we both share. Glad of that.

Nola - I so wish i could say my chores are all caught up - I feel like I am falling farther and farther behind. Sigh!! It will be a perfect evening for golf! Hope the ultrasound went well.

Karen - emoticon what a wonderful daughter you are - hope all goes well. Don't forget to take care of yourself!

Got a much needed pedi after work.

Up early for the District Nurse. She has just been and all my chores are caught up. Going for an ultrasound on my shoulder in a little while so thought in the meantime I would get on here and catch up.

Karen I can feel the love at your home. Take care and just remember we are all sending our loving vibes your way. emoticon

Nicole it sounds like you have that new position under control. Enjoy it!! Wonderful discount BTW. Great your Dad has come around a bit, and sad about your DS and DH. I hope it passes over and they find a spot where they can get on well together. It is hard for you loving them both as you do. emoticon

Dorothy 70 sounds a great Temp for golf. Have a lovely evening.

Barb that is so good your sister and yourself making that pact to write to one another and Scrap book them. What a great history to have.

Well I had better get myself out the door. Wendy are you up yet!!

I'll be back emoticon

Nola - it is warmer in your winter right now than it is in our spring - lol It is only 49 right now and not suppose to hit 60 today - brr - considering Saturday was hot and humid. at least tomorrow it will be closer to 70 - warm enough to golf.

Barb - yea for me time!! Love you and your sisters tradition - very nice.

Tricia - glad your first day went well. I hope it continues to. Wonderful that your dad is reaching out to you. So sorry about DS - hopefully this too shall pass.

My first day on the floor went pretty well. Everyone was very nice, the other sales associates were very happy to help me, and the customers were very patient, knowing it was my first day. I performed just about every transaction possible; purchase, return, exchange, price look-up, rewards card sign-up. Nearly everything except credit card sign-up, and that's the one where I receive financial credit, plus I am required a certain amount of those. So, I sure hope I have more success with that when I go in tomorrow.

Without going into great detail, the weekend had a big high and a tremendous low. The high was that my father made contact with me and wants to work on our relationship. DH and I even went to his company picnic on Saturday. The bad is that DS and DH had a horrible fight (verbal) yesterday and some terrible things were said by both. It was a big blow to a weekend that was otherwise heading us into a positive direction. I'm not sure what will happen now.

****************************************

BARB - Hooray for having your new computer! Do you love it? Nice that your parents had a great trip to see your brother. It sounds like a fun time going through the photo albums with your mother.

DOROTHY – We have some little flying bugs like you described, yuck! I wonder if they are the same ones. Wow, I got exhausted just reading about all the work you did for DD this weekend! I'm sure she really appreciated the help!

ELIZA – emoticon

KAREN – I'm so sorry to hear you are having trouble with your mother's home care! I hope you are able to straighten that out. I do get a big JCP discount! (See my post to NOLA below.)

NOLA – How wonderful that Don's leg is improving! Yes, I do get a good discount! I get 25% off if I use my JCPenney card or cash, and 20% if I use another method of payment. And, I can use that in addition to any other coupon I might have! Wow, I can't imagine borrowing 50 books at one time from the library!

TRICIA – emoticon

WENDY – I hope you are feeling better.

Monday – well, should be a little warmer today hopefully. BUT nice and sunny, so I’ll take it.

Had a good day yesterday. Got an outdoor walk in, got some ME time in. Wahoo.

Nola: Hard to believe it’s June. Not bad temps for your first official day of Winter in Oz!

You know, my little sis and I have this agreement that we will always write letters – REAL LETTERS – to each other and we scrapbook them. They are TREASURES. The young generation doesn’t “get” that. Same with photos.

Karen: Thinking of you. Hope you and your Mom are doing well.

Dorothy: You were certainly more than busy enough! The things we do for our children!

Wendy: Are you rested yet?

Tricia, Nicole, and all the rest of you beauties, will catch up w/you later

June already where has this month gone. Winter starts today in Oz. We had a nice 72F today so I will take lots of those. This morning I went to our local Market Bazaar in the park . As it was a Public Holiday there were a lot of people around. I didn't see anything I wanted/needed. Most of it looked like the stuff I have in my "spare" room.

Barb photos are great family history. It is a shame with everything digital and emails, no letters or hard copy, I wonder how much will be around to pass on in another generation.

Dorothy what a big weekend and so much done. You must be pooped! I bet your DDs yard is looking good. It is amazing how much can be done when everyone hops in to it. emoticon

Karen how are you? I hope you are feeling a bit more settled and getting some sleep. I do hope you find some more options for your Moms care. emoticon

Wendy I hope you have your feet up after that big trip. Sleep well emoticon

Nicole, Tricia, and Eliza waving at you emoticon

Nola - glad Don;s leg is healing nicely. Soon you will be on your tip. No camp for me this weekend - although it was on my list.

Karen - how awful - glad Dear Hubby took charge and demanded a refund. Way to go! hope you can find a better one soon.

Barb - glad your weekend went smoothly with mom and dad. Love looking at old photos - so sad that people do not do it anymore.

I had a busy and tiring weekend. I had promised DD I would come to her house on Saturday to help her with yard work. Hubby and I arrived with a truck full of rocks and fire wood that had to be emptied and taken to the top of her hill, She would like to make a patio out of the rocks so we need to get her more. Hubby was suppose to install some lights for her while we did the yard work. We went and got 2 yards of mulch and proceeded to attack her yard. We were a bit short. Luckily the rain held off for us to get it done. We had a nice lunch at the ribfest. But I was beat and tired when we drove home. And hubby told her we would come back on Sunday as all he got done was taking her lights down. I had planned on using Sunday as my camp cleaning day and my house cleaning day. But thanks to hubby I ended up back at DD's - we finished mulching her yard in the rain and it dropped about 20 degrees - but it is done. Dear hubby only managed to get one light installed so he needs to go back - not sure when. I was tired and sore and still have lots of stuff I need to get done but don't know when. And next weekend i have to travel to Buffalo for DD's 30th birthday bash.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Sunday – spent time w/Mom going thru photo albums. She absolutely loves that and I learned a lot about my family history, too.

Rainy day yesterday, but the sun is out, the sun is out! Outdoor walk . . . . done!

Enjoy your Sunday and blessings.

I had a busy day out in the garden helping Don with the pruning. So lots of steps and lovely sunshine.

I am off to bed for an early night and read. All this runing around the back yard has tired me out. I'll be back tomorrow.

Have a great Sunday emoticon

Saturday – Cooler today (had some storms/rain overnight) Raining again this morning, but got out for a walk before it started raining in earnest.

Mom and Dad had a safe trip to see her brother. She is very tired, and when she’s tired, she gets confused, so today is going to be a rest day. Dad needs the rest too!

Otherwise they did very well. Pleased.

Dorothy: You’re right. We’ve had 2 days of rain. Mosquitoes are going to be feasting in about 2 wks.

Nola: How nice to be getting ready for travel!

Yeah, the Dell has touch screen and Windows 8.1 . . .. all good! AND Intel Core 17 . . . . fast!

Eliza, Karen, Tricia, Nicole, Wendy: Catch up with you later. HUGS and blessings.

Saturday is nearly over for me, but it has been a lovely one. I have started sorting out what we need for our trip and thinking about food to take. Dons leg is looking a lot better so fingers crossed it will heal completely this week.

Karen Loving thoughts and vibes coming your way as you go through this stressful time with the care facility. I do hope it all works out, so you can get away with a happy heart. emoticon

Barb great link about care giving. I can relate to that after taking care of my Mom. I would do it again in a heartbeat, but it also had its moments. Marvellous having the Dell already. Has it got a touch screen and what is the latest Windows program? Excellent that your parents were able to go visiting, and your Mom returned in a good mood.

Wendy I hope you are getting over the tiredness, ready to go again.

Dorothy are you at your camp today. How are the blueberries? That sounds like an early start for you to get to Pittsburgh by 8 am. The traffic will be awful.

Tricia, Nicole and Eliza have a lovely Saturday.

I am off to watch some T.V emoticon

Nola - it is too bd that the nicer weather brings the bugs - i guess we can not have everything, I finally started a new book and am zipping through it - as soon as i get done here I am going to read before I go plant some seed and then get ready to head to daughters,

Karen - that is so sad - it is sad that people can not find good affordable,le care for there parents or there children. Hope it all works out.

Barb - glad to hear that mom and dad had a good day. Hoe today goes well for you - I will have to go back and read the link - thanks!

Wendy - i hear you on the traffic - it is going to be bad when hubby and i head to Pittsburgh as we have to be there at 8:10. Sounds like you need some me time and rest before you head out again.

Sue is hot and humid already - they are calling for thunderstorms tonight and i am sure we will get them with this humidity.

I thought you'd like the link. Hit home for me, and I haven't been at it so long.

Hope your Mom had a good day. Mom came home in a decent mood, tired and a little confused, which I was expecting. I imagine she and Dad will sleep in tomorrow.

Friday – Rainy and ugly. My parents are gong to visit Mom’s brother today, so will be gone most of the day. I expect it is going to be a cranky day for Mom on Saturday. But one day @ a time.

UP to 80 today. Sun and not a lot of humidity, so enjoyed it!

Have a great weekend.

Oh yeah . . . . typing this on my new DELL LAPTOP! What a pleasure! Hurray!

Dorothy: It is hard being the caregiver. **SIGH** Here’s an interesting article I found that will interest you (and Karen too1)

I’ll tack it on the end.

Walked early this morning. PHEW Needed that.

Tricia: LOVING my DELL. Far superior to my HP. NOT A LEMON!

Nicole: Continuing to send you healing vibes. Hope you’re feeling better.

Good luck with your training and hope you enjoy JC Penney. I love shopping there. But haven’t been in a long time.

Nola: OHhhhhh . . . . that is supposed to be a great book. I like her books and writing style.

Wendy: Hope you’ve rested up! **SIGH** Not easy, but I’m glad at least you’re planning ahesad.

Elize: How is your Mom? Any headway w/your car??

Hugs and have a great weekend.

Karen: ***SIGH*** ***SIGH*** ***SIGH*** Oh Karen, I hope that the issues @ the care ctr. Are resolved. Went thru the same thing w/Mom, except we knew that the outcome was going to be she and Dad would come here, so Dad was able to tolerate it and watched out for Mom. So bloody sad that these places are more financially oriented and NOT oriented to keeping good workers.

thank you everyone.

I don't think I told you that I have to go back onto blood pressure tablets so I went to the doctor this morning and got a script. I also told him that I need to start Vit B12 injections,, well that was done also. Had my first one this morning. Now we will see if they work. LOL.

Still tired, This trip has taken a lot out of me. Not good. Not sure when I am going back to Adelaide either Sunday or Monday as I am going by myself. I will need to sleep there one night, at this stage I am thinking Sunday, then I only have to drive into city to the hospital in the morning, then have lunch with a friend and then drive home.

Need to think on it tomorrow. Jason is busy and Mum gets too tired now she turned 80. Dad is 84 and cant drive in the city anymore. Need to start thinking about all these trips.

A bit late today getting here. We had beautiful day and I did get 1/2 hr in the sun with my book. I'm reading "The Tenth Circle" by Jody Picoult. I have nearly finished it so must get another one ready. We can borrow 50 books each from our library and I can borrow from the Red Cross Shop books as long as I take them back, so we are never short of something to read.

Nicole lovely to hear you are Spark Peddling and going to the gym. Great the job has started off well Do they give you good staff discounts?

Tricia great to have you back. Are you all rested up now after all the wedding stuff, visitors and illness. emoticon

Barb good your Mom took the hair washing without any drama. Yeaah on quieter days and outside time.....I hope you have many more emoticon

Dorothy yuk on the flies. We have lots of bush flies around, particularly in the summer and in open spaces .They call it the Great Australian Salute, the continued flapping of flies out of your face. Luckily they don't seem to come around the house, but camping can have its moments.

Karen did you have fun in Macys, did you keep a tight grip on your wallet? I hope the visit to the foot Dr was a success.

Wendy are you over your big trip yet. I hope you are feeling more rested. We have a long weekend this weekend for Western Australia Day. You will be getting ready to go to Adelaide again for Monday won't you? is someone going with you this time?

Eliza Hi how are you doing. Is your Mom OK now?

Don't forget weigh in for the Blitz Challenge. How did you go???

Nichole - they are little black flies. They come in swarms and swarm around your head - they get in your mouth, eyes, and nose - ugh. They use to spray for then around here but have not done so in a couple of years. And bug repellent does not seem to affect them. Just talking about them makes me itch. I think they like to make nests in my hair - lol emoticon

I think I am going to take 1/2 day off so I can go mow at the camp because tomorrow we will be at DD's and Sunday and Monday it is suppose to rain. I did get our back yard mowed yesterday and hubby managed to get the front done.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Got a lot of fitness in today; dog walking, elliptical at the gym with DS, some light exercises at home, and now SparkPedaling. I am about ready to call it a night!

I am enjoying JCPenney, so far, but I haven't really worked on the floor, yet. Mainly just virtual training. I did go on the floor at the end of my last shift, and the girls were nice, especially one in particular who showed me around. Tomorrow, I go back and will do a couple more hours with my trainer, then the rest of the day (4 hours) on the floor. So, that will be my first experience interacting with the customers and using the register.

****************************************

BARB - So far, so good with the job. We'll see how it goes tomorrow! Were you able to enjoy a nice low-key day?

DOROTHY – I am getting those night hours and weekends at JCPenney that you talked about! What kind of bugs do you have pestering you during golf? I can't imagine they are as awful as the mosquitos we have here.

ELIZA – emoticon

KAREN – Did you find any good deals at Macy's today? I am still wondering about your shaking machine?

NOLA – I hope you had a fun time with your friends today. How is Don's leg?

TRICIA – Thank you for the kind words of support and hugs!

WENDY – I'm glad your Neph appt went well. That's a lot of juggling you have to do with appointment scheduling.

Karen - hope you enjoy your shopping!! Your food day sounded awesome - wonderful fruits and stew and meatloaf emoticon

Nola - enjoy your company. I hear you on the feeling old - some days I wonder if I can keep going emoticon Not liking all of the aches and pains. And with a hubby in poor health more and more falls on my shoulders emoticon

BArb - gladf you made it through the perm with mom and ok and are enjoying that new hair cut. Yea for getting a walk in - I am going to go for one at lunch time. It is gorgeous outside.

Wendy - yea for the good news. Trying to coorodinate appointments is a job in it self and the driving is no fun - Pittsburgh is 3 hours away for us.

I will probably try to mow the lawn after work if hubby does not get it done today.

Thursday – well hope for a low-key day. Got a walk in early this morning. That was nice! Needed it.

No Drs. Appts., or dental appt. so that makes a good Thursday!

Wendy: Glad for your news on the kidneys. Awesome. Doing the happy dance!

I hope your sons take the warning seriously! But you’re right . . . it’s up to them.

Nola: LOLOL . . . feel like I lost maybe a lb. in hair weight! LOLOL It was nice. Mom got her perm, though there were a few rough patches. She has a phobia of water and of course, the first thing the beautician does is wash the hair. She did it though. PHEW

Have fun with your visitors.:

Wendy so happy for you. The healthy eating and lifestyle is paying off. That is good for your sons and brother to get checked out early. emoticon

Karen I have this picture of you surrounded by apricot pies and other goodies. Enjoy your day.

Dorothy emoticon with the golfing and the reading just for you.

Barb another couple of sleeps then you will have your new toy. It will have all the most up to date bells and whistles and programs on it. It will be great. How was the hair cut? Feeling all trim taught and terrific? emoticon

Eliza Nicole and Tricia have a lovely day.

We are expecting friends in a moment so I am on my way, catch you all tomorrow. emoticon

saw the Neph yesterday and he is still happy with me. My kidneys have improved a little bit so no mention of dialysis at this stage. Got to be happy with that. See him again in 3 months. nly problem is because I have had kidney cancer twice, my sons and brothers need to have a renela scan done as they are now in the high risk category because of me. They have all been told so now it is up to them.

So glad to be home but i have been so tired all day.

I had one win yesterday when they went to rebook another appointment as it was going to be abot 4pm, my comment to the poor receptionist was "I wish country patients could get earlier appointment as they need to travel home". She wouldn't have known I was from the country but looked around and got a earlier appt by a week and also a earlier time.

The travelling is so hard but each of my doctors have clinics on different days. I also usually see the doctors at differnt times, for example the Neph is every 3 months, the gastric bypass surgeon is every 2 months and the Urologist is every 6 months. However this round they cancelled the Neph appt for a month and the urology appt was actually made a month early. At this point, my state is trying to close down hospitals and so on I thought I would get the appts when I could. Hence 3 appt in just over 3 weeks.

Gastric bypass appointments should also be spaced further apart from now on, so hopefully every 3 or 6 monthts.

Nicole: So glad to hear the CT is over. I don’t do well with the contrast material either!

Yes, now it’s the “waiting game” with the Dell!

How is your new job going?? Hope you’re enjoying it.

Nola: From what you describe, I can see how you would come away with those feelings. BUT you for sure know you’re leagues ahead of those in your age group who don’t eat properly and keep active.

Glad the RV is set for travel. Hope that Don’s leg heals quickly. **SIGH**

Dorothy: good luck w/the appointment coordinating. Glad you got out golfing!

Wendy: Glad you’re home safe and sound and things went well.

Eliza: Hope things are going better for you!

Thursday - Off to get Mom her permanent and ME a hair cut. Wahoo!

Who hoo - so nice to see our gang returning!!

Nola - yep - that is what a dump cake is - you dump it in - no stirring - and usually very yummy! I hope Don's leg cooperates with you and heals - can't have that motor home waiting. I actually finally did start reading a book and am going to make it part of my day.

Tricia - glad that the wedding went well other than DH getting sick. Hope you are finally both feeling better. Always so busy!

Nicole - family drama - ugh - I never understand family members writing off one another. My mom has not talked to her sister for about 12 years - and she is now in her 90's - my Aunt that is. And my Dh;s family - not even going to start there. I use to work at Penney's and loved it. Except for the night hours and weekends. It was very hard to leave there and start working in an office - but you know good benefits and more money won out.

Barb - crazy weather. We were very lucky and had a very sunny long memorial weekend. But the rain is suppose to start today.

Wendy - I have to coordinate hubbys appointments in Pittsburgh - its a 3 hour drive each way. We re going down a week from Sunday - he has to see a back Dr and a the plastic surgeon that has been working on his nose - he had to have it reconstructed after having cancer in it 5 years ago. It is exhausting. hope you are able to do the same.

Karen - are you ready for the train rides. Hope all goes well with mom.

Well - I did it - I got out golfing last night - and it was a beautiful night other than the bugs - they are awful already.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

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

I can't help but think what a great caring loving lot we are. I get all warm and fuzzy thinking of you all. emoticon

Nicole so lovely to see you again. So sad you are having family problems. Just take one day at a time. I am sure you will all pull through this, but I also know how rugged , stressful and hurtful it can all be along the way. Glad your scan is over and now you await your results. I hope they can find a way to move the stone without surgery. Congrats on the new job, good for you, not to mention a bit of financial stress lifted. emoticon

Tricia you as well. We have missed you. I hope sometime you have the time to post some pics of the wedding. Your poor DH being sick for the wedding. I hope you are both over the sickness now. I think you need to join me for my afternoon hour in the sunshine with my book that has started to become part of my day. emoticon

Dorothy you sound like you need some "Me" time as well. I suppose you are back at work to have a rest. You are always so busy. Did you ever get that Pedi rebooked that you missed? emoticon

Barb good you had a relaxing day and also you were able to get a walk in yesterday. Lovely that your Mom still does puzzles. emoticon

Karen how is the shaking machine. Hope you get your medication sorted. You don't need "woozy" in your life right now. emoticon

Eliza 5 hours standing must be so tiring. I bet you have to have a smile fixed on your face as well whether you want to or not. Hope you can get your car fixed up before too long. emoticon

Wendy I hope your day is going well. You are going to be so tired when you get home emoticon

We had our Patient Management evaluation at our Drs medical centre today. That is when they ask you questions on general knowledge, give you words to remember, write down dictation etc etc etc, see if you need bars and ramps, and so it goes. I know it is a good service, but I came away feeling decidedly ancient. emoticon

The good part of the day is the RV is ready to be picked up tomorrow, and be ready to load our stuff in at will. Don got antibiotics today for the leg, so I am willing it to heal and then off we will go when he recovers from the mucky blood taking next week, hopefully about the 15th June. emoticon

The CT Scan went fine, though I did NOT enjoy when they injected me with the contrast. I don't have my doctor's appointment for 2 weeks, so I won't hear the results until then.

****************************************

BARB - Oh my, three teeth extracted! I'm glad you are feeling better! Thank you for all the well wishes and prayers. How aggravating that the Dell didn't work when you brought it home, and it was the last one! This will probably be a very SLOW week for you, while you wait....

DOROTHY – Lol about your computer taking over your post from Friday.

ELIZA – So sorry to hear about your car trouble. I hope you are able to get it worked out. Nice that you have a garden with sunflowers! Do you get to enjoy their seeds? Thank you for the well wishes.

KAREN – How is that shaking machine? Do you like it? I think it is so sweet that you and your mother were sleeping and snoring together. Good for your attitude getting her a new oxygen machine!

NOLA – How exciting that you are preparing for your RV trip! I can imagine how beautiful those crystals must look in your sunny window. I'm very sorry to hear Don is still having problems with his leg.

WENDY – I'm so happy to hear that your doctor's report was all clear!

I hope that you don't need surgery for the stone! How painful. HUGS

BARB – Thank you for all your continued daily visits to my SparkPage!

KAREN – Thank you for continually thinking of me in the chat thread!

NOLA – Thank you for the thoughtful and concerned goodie you sent me today!

I am sorry for disappearing. There has been a lot of change here. My older son is no longer speaking to me and says he doesn't refer to me as his mother anymore. He didn't even send me a text message on Mother's Day. My younger son is still in the house, but some events took place, and he hates DH now. My father has disinherited me, and we will no longer have contact, unless something changes. Such a senseless shame. So, now I have “lost” both DS1 and my father. I still have the love of DS2, but I don't even know how much longer that will last.

Additionally, I have a kidney stone that won't pass. At first, I didn't know what was wrong with me, until I ended up in the ER. The symptoms started over a month ago, and I've never had one before. This one is 5mm and seems to be stuck. I will be getting a CT scan today, and if the doctor is correct about its location, he will have to remove it surgically.

I do have some GOOD news. I applied for jobs and was called for a couple of interviews. Long story short, today was my first day working as a sales associate at JCPenney. I hope everything works out with that. We really need the additional income, especially now that we're in summer and orchestra season is over.

There is no way I can catch up with everything that has gone on in the thread over the last couple of months. I will try to review some of the more recents posts, to see what everyone has been up to recently. I will have to do it later, as I need to leave for my CT Scan in a few minutes.

I'm ALIVE!!! BUSHED, but ALIVE!!! I wish I had time to catch up on posts right now, but I don't. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to come back later today and see what's been going on in the land of One'fers! Our wedding was wonderful - maybe I'll share some pics later! It was a CRAZY BUSY FEW DAYS AND LOADS OF WORK, but it turned out WONDERFULLY! I got sick a couple of days later, and it pretty much took me out for a week and a half. (Poor DH came down with it the day before the wedding.) Saturday we went to a reunion, yesterday, went to help mom and dad. I feel like I need a couple of weeks to DO NOTHING! Ha! Now I need to focus on the music for a large youth group pioneer trek the last part of June. Always something to do - right?

Hope you are all doing well! I'll come back when I get a chance to spend more time!

Tuesday – back to work routine. Enjoyed just a relatively relaxing day. Needed that!

Weather wasn’t too cooperative till the late afternoon. We got out for a walk and that was wonderful.

Dorothy: OOOOhhhhhh . . . well a dump cake with rhubarb sounds better than pickled rhubarb! SHEESH! LOL

Sometimes it’s so hard to carve out that “ME time, but so worthwhile.

Nola: Sorry about Don having to start up again for his leg ulcer. **SIGH** Frustrating!

Wendy: Hope you can get appointments coordinated! Frustrating I am sure.

Karen: Good luck w/the Dr. visit. Sorry that your med is making you woozy! I hate that when I have something to accomplish (and let’s face it . . . when DON’T we!)

thank you everyone for the wishes fo tomorrow. I also hope the Neph is happy with me.

We are leaving about 9.30am but don't expect to be home before 9pm tomorrow night so i will be very tired on Thursday. I need to do something about all these appointments. As I go back to Adelaide in just over a fortnight again for another appt. 3 times in 3 weeks not good on the finances.

Had a good day! Took a half hour out for me sitting in the sun reading. The downside is we have the District Nurse again to Dons leg, same ulcer trying to take off again. It always happens near him having the mucky blood taken, which is next week. We have our fingers crossed it can be contained and won't stop us going on our trip next month.

Wendy have a good day tomorrow. I hope the Neph is pleased with you and tells you you are doing well. Which you are!! Glad Jason is going with you to help with the driving. I'll be thinking of you emoticon

Barb it will be good to have a new computer. Dell have a good name. I love on-line shopping except for the waiting.

Eliza i love Sunflowers they are such happy flowers. I'm glad you are not in the flood area.

Dorothy I was wondering about the"pickled" rhubarb emoticon You need to take some time out for you as well as rushing around after everyone else. I just love having the time now, I guess it is the good side of being mature and goodlooking.

Karen lovely the sun shined on you on Memorial day. I hope it keeps shining as you get ready for the Big train holiday. emoticon

I often hear about "dump cakes". Is that where you throw everything in and somehow it turns out perfect! emoticon

Barb - hope the new computer works for you. i sure need one. Went to post yesterday and my computer started acting up so I got off of it, Hahaha - it was not pickled rhubarb - I picked rhubarb. Made a dump cake out of mine - pretty good but I would add more fruit the next time.

Nola - now that is my kind of day - reading out side,. I really need to start forcing myself to sit and read more often. I love to read and have been really neglecting it.

Eliza - so glad you are safe from the floods - so scary. hope you get that car running soon. We re down to one as hubbys truck needs some work to it,.

Wendy - sounds like you had a good weekend cuddling with those grandkids. Perfect! hope all goes well with your appointments this week.

Busy weekend for me - I got a lot done but I am so tired and exhausted. Then I go to bed way early and get up to early - hahaha - like I sad I really need to force myself to start taking more time for walking,biking and reading.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

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

Monday – Well was going to purchase a Dell from Costco (had a great deal). Got it, and NADA when I went to hook it up. Grrrr. So back to Costco and it was the last one. Soooooo … . ordered it on line and should be here in about 7 days. Dell has a good reputation, so we’ll see!

Rainy day, so indoors yesterday. Did puzzles w/Mom. She likes that. Looked @ albums, too.

Nola: Sounds like a perfect Monday!

Eliza: Glad you’re safe from the flooding.

Wendy: Good luck w/your trips and appointments. Good Jason will help you on Wednesday.

Karen: Have a great Memorial Day!

Had a beautiful sunny Monday. Spent some time outside sitting in the sun reading. Absolutely bliss.

So lovely to hear your temps are warmer and you all are getting outside. Love watermelon, can't wait until they are back in season again.

Eliza sad about your car again. We saw a lot of flooding in Texas on the TV tonight is that near you.

Enjoy your Memorial Day Holiday everyone. emoticon
