Barb - nice that you got mom and dad out and mom enjoyed the outing -even if it is Walmart. I am sure if you could afford a mansion you could afford a maid so toilet cleaning emoticon Sorry about them teeth - so expensive they are.

Nola - and we finally shut off our heater. Thank God! Hope Cheyenne is enjoying her stay and you are enjoying her. Say hi to the Kolas for me!

going to be a busy rest of the week as the girl I work with is off so that means I have double duty.

Tired so went to bed early and feel more rested. Hallelujah!

We have the heater on this morning. First time. Winter must be on its way,

Barb....really now...did you really want all that cleaning that goes with a Mansion. Just think of all the toilets!! Sorry to hear about the big bank balance nudge, Dentistry is in a class of its own when the accounts are sent out. I do hope the end result will be continued good health for you and a beautiful smile. emoticon

Dorothy I hope your personal day was enjoyable, even if it was catchup. emoticon

Karen are you and DH having a great together time. are you shining all that chrome on the Riviera, or taking it for a spin? Thinking of you my friend emoticon

Wendy are you off to the gym today, or cuddled up in front of the heater?

Cheyenne is here, and today is "Germany's involvement in WW2" . Sure beats Algebra. Then we are going to the Local National Park for a big walk and to check on the Koalas.

Monday – yesterday was a good day. For sure the weather was perfect! That is a huge blessing.

Gotta get moving. Appt. w/the endodontist this morning. GRRRrrr..

Ok, back from endodontist. Major bummed. Have to have 2 teeth extracted, which means my current bridge is toast and am definitely not a candidate for implants w/type 2 (even though it’s controlled w/nutrition and exercise). Pkus w.ny history of rheumatic heart fever as a kid, not a good option. **SIGH** My dreams of a mansion are in flames (BWAHAHAHA -- not in this lifetime for sure!) But the endodontist is in the planning stages for his. **LE HUGE SIGH**


Nola: You’re up @ my time of the morning! Yes, the first grass cut always reminds me that spring is here.

Wendy: Yes, some cars have the gremlins. Not good! Glad as you say that it was an easy fix.

Dorothy: Glad you could help your friend pack. Hard!

Enjoy your personal day!

Karen - got a lot of packing done for my friend. it was hard keeping her focused as she was getting overwhelmed but kept her at task. We did take a break and she did my hair - lol - and while we were waiting for the color to set she got a lot of her shop packed up. DH came to help and was on a ladder in her garage - about 10 feet high and the ladder tipped and they both came down. Huge heart attack but thank God he did not get seriously hurt. Glad you and mom got out and enjoyed the sunshine.

Nola - hope Cheyenne arrives safely and that you are all safe from scary fire. It amazes me what we did to our country's once upon a time. Like how you have to hide those veggies - lol - too funny.

Wendy - I think you are right - it had to have been gremlins. Only explanation!

Taking a personal day today so won't be much of a rest day but i really need to get some things done around here.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

re the car, i think it was gremlins. LOL. I lock the car everytime I get out of it and go anywhere.
I think this is going to be a mystery for a long time.
Glad it was easy to fix though.

Funny day here and very warm but we are in for a huge cold change that is going to hit in the next few hours.

It is 5 a.m. and I am up and wide awake. I think it is the Full Moon that has been looking at me all night. Absolutely beautiful, I hope you have it at your place tonight.

Barb nothing like the smell of freshly mown grass to make you feel summer is just around the corner. How lovely to have your parents out for a relaxing social meal that has nothing to do with all the stressful stuff that has been.

Karen emoticon on the resuscitated Fit Bit. Hope you had a lovely Sunday.

Dorothy you will be glad to go back to work to rest after your big weekend. Have a good one.

Wendy waving at you across the Nullabour! emoticon Have a good week!

I had better put this early morning to some use and put a big pot of pumpkin soup on for tonight and freezing. I have to get it processed up before Cheyenne gets here so she doesn't know what veggies went into it.

Sunday – Gorgeous day. Got Mom for an outdoor walk and she did really well with her walker. Then out to supper. That was nice too. She and Dad enjoy the buffet we went to and everyone gets what they want.

The lawn had the first cut of the season. Look so nice and green. It’s Spring!

Donna: You sure did have a busy one! Warm here too – up to 70.

Nola: Sorry to hear about the smoke and ash! Stay safe!!

Mom prefers to be indoors but I am pushing getting out, because she gets cantankerous just being in the house~! ME TOO! LOL

Have fun w/Cheyenne.

LOVE your slip, slop, slap! Great way to remember it.

Karen: Too funny .. . it's alive! Good news.

Sunday is nearly over for me. We woke up this morning to smoke and thick ash all over the house and garden. There is a big bush fire on the edge of our village, and the road in and out is closed. The fire is contained but not controlled, but it has just started to rain so that will help. Because all this coast was used for bombing practice during WW2 there is always a danger of unexploded ammunition in the bush so when there is a fire the Firefighters wait and let the fire come to them. Thank goodness it is not the middle of summer, it would be a worry.

Dorothy your weekend sounds lovely. Your roses are going to be so happy with that feed of manure. emoticon

Barb those temps are beautiful. Perfect for outside. Does your Mom get out in the Sun, or does she prefer to stay indoors?

Karen has the antique pile reduced. Could you hear me bidding from here? Great you can just go in and have breakfast with your Mom. emoticon

Wendy good it was only a fuse with the car. You would be so lost without it, if it was something major. Being able to go the gym whenever you want must be good. emoticon

GD Cheyenne returns tomorrow so that will be good. We were supposed to get her today but of course we couldn't get out.

Enjoy your Sunday, don't for get to "Slip, slop, slap" Do you have that in the Summer. Slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, and slap on a hat. Or is it because Australia is the Melanoma capital of the world, that it is drummed into us all the time. emoticon

What a busy Saturday - went to the hospital to visit a friend and then went shopping. Hit a farmers market, Sams Club. Aldis, and TJ Maxx! Once home i helped hubby empty a half a trailer of horse manure - put it around my roses - started a new garden, put it where my veggies are going and put some in my mulch pile. I was pooped. And before I left the house I got all of the dusting done and the kitchen cleaned. Still need to run the sweeper. Today off to help my friend pack.

Nola - there is always something to do - isn't there? I want to find some curtains for my deck - for privacy emoticon My neighbors are just a little too friendly. emoticon

Karen - Good luck with your antique pile.

Wendy - glad to hear everything is ok - sort of. That is super weird about your car - sounds like someone is messing with you. That kind of stuff always baffles me too. Hope you got your glasses back.

Barb - it hit 69 yesterday her - this week we should finally hit the 70's. Drats on new coffee maker but we all know how we are with out our coffee. emoticon

Saturday – Yesterday was a good day despite busy-ness. Had to get a new coffee maker. Our 4 mth. old coffee maker gave up the ghost. Glad I could find a replacement.

The weather is really nice out. May even reach 70 today1 Looking forward to that.

Have a great Saturday.

Dorothy: Gardening is my therapy too!

Nola: You and me . . . . never doing just one single thing LOL Multi-taskers @ heart!

Wendy glad you’re in the land of the living!

Oh no on the glasses and the car! Glad the car is going now, though.

Karen: HUGS right back and thoughts of you too.

Good luck with the antique pile!

hi everyone, i am still in the land of the living LOL.

Had a couple of early nights so never got on here. Then last night I came home early to spend some time on ehre and i had lost my glasses, (left thenover Mum's) didn't realise how little I could see without them, so i ended up going to bed early again. so nothing drastic. I have been out all day again today. I have joined the local gym so I have been over there a couple of times this week.

busy, busy.

then to top it all off today, I had car trouble. where my car stopped and did not want to go again, Ended up getting RAA in and there was a fuse missing, how did this happen I don't know, as I had been out and about all day without any trouble then this happened I am still confused with how i could lose a fuse when it was in the middle of all teh fuses. As soon as this fuse was put in the car started and no trouble since. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Everyone I hope you are all having or about to have a great Saturday. Mine has been a lot of catchup stuff around the place. Hung another lot of curtains which brightens things up a bit. Went to the Chiroprator for a tune up this afternoon. This was a test run with the new one. My lovely one has sold the business and moved away, which was not good. Anyway the new guy was great and I feel much better. emoticon

Big night on TV tonight so I am out of here (although I multi task a bit with my laptop on the table beside my easy chair.. watching for people posting emoticon )

Friday – well, Mom did pretty well today. Was upset though because we received a call that her youngest brother had been in the hospital for 8 days with meningitis. Just discharged today, but has in-home nursing for follow up. Still very weak.

Otherwise her older brother who called with the news (he’s 90) is doing well. Blessings on that one.

So, hoping today will be a slow day. Ready for the weekend.

Nola: Seeing that halo from here!

Karen: Working on coffee #2 then that’s it for the day since the coffee maker died. GRRRrrr. Only 4 mths. old.

Up @ 4, breakfast prepped and out for my walk by 5 am, then had to drop DD off @ work and pick up a prescription.

Donna: The walks are rejuvenating! That’s my time to de-clutter the brain and re-charge.

So far, no change in his murmur, so just monitoring for symptoms. If they happen, off to the vet or the ER clinic and not leaving till they give me an appt. w/the cardiologist. At this point I’m pretty convinced it is not a valve, so that’s a major good thing.

BOO on the friend moving~ that’s hard. Wishing her good luck, though.

Enjoy the weekend one and all! HUGS

Nola - yea for purging -always feels so good. And yes my feet are happy and dancing!

Karen - yea for curled hair and yard work. I actually love doing yard work - weather mowing or working in my gardens - such therapy. I will also be outside with my plate emoticon emoticon

Barb - yea for me time. I bet you really need it these days. Glad your dad is still able to drive. Its so hard when they loose there independence and I think moving in with you was probably enough for him at the moment. Hope Mr Spot and you hear from the Dr soon.

Shopping, house work and yard work for me tomorrow. Sunday helping a good friend get packed up - she is moving - and not only is she a good friend she is also my hairdresser. emoticon

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

emoticon Can you see that halo? That is me after cleaning out my linen closet and getting 2 garbage bags full to go elsewhere. Feeling good emoticon

Karen hamburgers will do, just toot your horn as you go by. I'll be the one at the gate with my plate out. emoticon You sound so happy with your Mom home. I hope you had a lovely day hanging out.

Barb so good you have those extra skills to take care of Mr Spot. Great that your Dad was able to get his licence renewed. I am dreading when that time comes for me. Strawberries on the menu sounds yumm. emoticon

Dorothy are your feet feeling fantastic. I bet you are floating around. emoticon

Wendy,Tricia, and Nicole I hope you had a good day.

Thursday – well yesterday turned out pretty well. Dad went to get his license renewed and passed! I cannot believe it, but he did.

Mom had lots of anxieties, but kept her so busy she didn’t have time for that too much! PHEW

Have my Endodontist appt. on Monday. We’ll see how this all works out. I will just be glad for my mouth to be healthy. Definitely.

Sunny day so got my walk in. Sure needed that ME time.

We’ll see how today progresses. Oh, and STILL NO WORD FROM THE CARDIOLOGIST! Thinking that I will need to get Mr. Spot back to the vet just to be checked out and see what he thinks. Mr. Spot is not showing any symptoms and so that’s a good thing. Listened to his heart too, and still a whoosh whoosh, but not pronounced @ all. So those are good signs.


Nola: I agree that it’s a great thing for Cheyenne to continue w/her hockey so she gets to be with those her own age. It’s so hard!

Dad did arrive home safe and sound with a renewed drivers license. MUGH TO MY SURPRISE, though he honestly is a good driver.

Couldn’t agree more . . . I cannot believe it’s going to be 01 May tomorrow. Sheesh!

Dorothy: I’ll 3rd the motion on Karen opening a drive-by service! Went out yesterday and got some strawberries after Dad arrived home!

Hope everyone else is doing well! Catch up later

Nola - what a wonderful idea for Karen to have a drive by service - strawberry shortcake sure sounds yummy! emoticon I hope Cheyenne enjoys her hockey practice and game. And hopefully something gets resolved soon. Good idea to keep her around other kids. emoticon I sure hope I don't see too many spider webs with my new glasses - emoticon

Barb - hope your dad has a safe trip to and from safely and mom is doing well. As well as you and Jason.

Karen - how lovely you and mom can sit in the sun - I love to sit in the sun and read!

I am with you Nola - hard to believe tomorrow is May Day!

Got a pedi yesterday - had a lovely chat with the lady I go to - she is such a peach.

Have just taken Cheyenne to the train, she has gone home for Hockey practise tonight and game on Sunday then she will come back up here if the school situation isn't resolved. We all are trying to keep the hockey going so at least she is mixing with other kids.

Karen I can see your nails from here. I think they have sunsets and sea vistas painted on them. Have a lovely time. Sorry my ESP is not kicking in for your curtains at the moment. emoticon It is so nice that someone else has an interesting "spare" room like mine.

Barb not good on the teeth or the bank balance. Not good about the old dentist missing it all.
Hope your Dad arrived home safely and the bag of tricks worked with your Mum.

Dorothy good your Moms appointment went well. I can see when you get your new glasses you will see spiders webs etc that you didn't know existed. Lets hope you don't find any extra wrinkles. Just a few more laughter lines. emoticon

I can't believe it is May tomorrow already, plus weigh in day again.......already! This year is just flashing by so fast.

Tricias DDs wedding is soon and we have not heard what the mother of the bride is wearing.
Tricia are you out there emoticon

I am supposed to be thinking about food for dinner. I wish Karen had a drive by service with all the yummy things she thinks of. emoticon

Nola - Nice that DGD can spend time with your and grandpa. So sad the bullying that goes on everywhere and what a mess it makes of once happy kids. Yea for finding the curtains and throwing things out.

Barb - eek - poor mom - make sure not to warn her the next time. And teeth - I can sympathize. I have always taken good care of mine but... I had to have one pulled a couple of years ago - so sad and right now my front crown has shattered so waiting to get that fixed.

Karen - how fun to do nails and to cuddle. I am going to get a pedi today.

So - moms appointment went well - she has a bump on her thyroid and for the time being they are just going to keep an eye on it. As for my eyes - I am getting new glasses in 2 weeks - apparently have not been seeing anything clear - lol - I guess I am just a fuzzy kind of girl. And I have a astigmatism in one eye. So that is my story.,

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Wednesday – I had my first visit with my new dentist. What an aggravating eye opener. HE is awesome. BUT my old dentist . . . . I’d like to meet him in a back alley and have at it! As of my exam yesterday I need:

2-3 root canals
3-5 crowns
Possibly 2 extractions
Probable new bridge
Probably crown for my 2 front teeth. (in addition to the others.

Insurance pays nothing. GRRRRrrrrrr

OMG I brush and floss religiously. I went to the dentist every 6 mths. I am so made @ my old dentist that he didn’t catch ANY of this.

Dad is off to IL again today. So, got my bag of tricks that I hope work today for mom. I NEED 3 o’clock to come EARLY!

Karen: glad you have your Mom home and she’s comfortably resting! Nail day – fun!

Lunch sounds delicious!!!!!!! Be right over.

Nola: I am so very sorry for your granddaughter’s situation. Makes me furious! My kids’ school did nothing about bullying either, and about the only viable option is home schooling. It is very hard to get into another school here, too, if it’s not in “district”. AGGRAVATING! Honestly, that she’s seeing a psychologist is a good thing. Just ashame that she needs meds. **SIGH**

Barb love the note to self. Glad your parents are doing well. I hope the dentist wasn't too traumatic.

Dorothy can you see us now? Hope the appointments went well. Yes the school could do a lot more. Here all the schools have a catchment area and if your address is out of that it is very difficult to get a move. Cheyenne is now under a psychologist and on anti depressants and it just about breaks our heart to see this bright 15yr old kid in such a mess. We are hoping for a solution for her before she misses out on too much. I think she has only attended 3 days this year.

Karen have a good time with your Mom. Cool weather makes for inside warm and fuzzy activities emoticon Enjoy your time together.

Wendy I hope your day went well. It is starting to get a bit chilly. I'll say that in a quiet voice so we don't get laughed at emoticon

We have had a good day. Cheyenne is missing her woodwork class, so she and Don have been in the shed sorting out a project. She has always been Dons shadow in the shed, so it is good for both of them. I have been organizing curtains for one of the bedrooms, so have been tail up in the "spare" room looking for the new ones that were in there "somewhere" and turfing obsolete stuff out. Feel good about that, and also found the curtains emoticon

Tuesday – well the Dr. visit for my parents went well. Mom was a nervous wreck. Note to self: DO NOT tell her about future visits till the day of. Anyhow, both Mom and Dad are pleased and I say PHEW!

Today’s fun adventure is going to the dentist. I do NOT expect good news there. But hoping.

Karen: Enjoy your time /your Mom. HUGS

Nola: glad the plumbing job is done.

So sad that your GD has been bullied to such an extent. I pray that a good school is found. She deserves that for sure.

Algebra . . . yikes!

Dorothy: Yes yeah for walks and warmer weather!

I've had a mixed up day today. We have GD Cheyenne with us again, not sure for how long. They are trying to find another school for her without the bullying. She will be working from home, I can see algebra rearing its ugly head again, not my favourite subject, but at least it keeps the brain cells working.

Apart from that everything else is going OK. Plumbing jobs were done yesterday so that is a big plus.

Dorothy I love camp fires. We have fire restrictions for such a long time here, that we only get to light a fire like that when it is too cold to be outdoors.

Barb, Karen, Wendy, Tricia, Nicole and Eliza emoticon coming your way. I am bushed tonight so it is feet up and a cuppa then bed! emoticon

Nola - how fun for you to play gofer emoticon lol! And sunny with no wind is just perfect.

Barb - it is still too early for me to begin planting too but I have started to de weed my veggie garden getting it ready. I got 3/4 of the way done and had to stop - I was tired! emoticon So glad your mom and dad are both thriving under your wonderful care.

Karen - love going through old photos -wish I had more time to do it. I have been wanting to get some collages up for some time now but it is just so time consuming. Maybe some rainy weekend I will get to it.

Wendy - yea for you and the progress you have made.

So I was outside again yesterday for a good part of the day and the weekend ended on a high note with a campfire with the neighbors.

Looks like another beautiful day here. Yesterday I was outside most of the day in lovely soft sunshine and no wind. Today Don has some plumbing jobs to do and I am the "Go Fer". emoticon

Dorothy lovely to hear you are finally outside in the garden. I hope Sunday was an outside day as well. emoticon

Karen great memories going through old photos. We also made a flip folder for my Mum that was light enough for her to have on her knee with A4 size copies of special people and times in her life. It is so lovely it is all working out for your Mom there and you are happy with the Facility. emoticon

Barb so good you and Jason were able to get some time out together, and you didn't feel you had to rush home. Great also you can see your Dad improving, it must have been so stressful for him, even the times before your Mom had the fall. emoticon

Wendy how good are you!!! emoticon Welcome to your new way of life. You deserve to be proud of you. We are proud of you. You are emoticon

Nicole and Trisha, where are you. I hope you are both well I miss you both!! emoticon

We have two new members on our Team KITTYLADY1259 and BUGTRAIN. If you both are out there please jump in and tell us about yourselves. It is great to have you on the Team!

Well I'd better go fer the spanners. I'll be back later emoticon

Hi Nola, no there was no way I would have or could have done these things even 6 months ago. The last time I went to a ANZAC Day parade was about 15 years ago. So proud of myself for now being able to act like a normal person.

Hope everyone had and is having a great weekend.

Barb - so happy everything is working out. It is nice that you and Jason can get out a bit. And your mom probably lovers her routing and you taken such a burden off of your dad's shoulders. Sun was out a bit here yesterday and I was able to be outside. Never got real warm to much later in the afternoon.

Nola - Sounds like a plan - you could come her and gorge yourself on blueberries and i will come there to see under the grapevines and have a cuppa with you! So glad you all decided to blow off those terrorists.

Wendy - so nice to be a proud grandma - I love it when I can see the girls in there dance recital and or plays. glad your day was so wonderful in your new clothes.

Karen - sounds like a great day for your and hubby and you even managed to squeeze in some mom time.

I cleaned, got groceries and a few plants, helped a friend get some cinder blocks, worked in my yard and ran my son to the mall. We will see what today brings.

Sunday – Jason and I got out for a few hrs. yesterday. Had to go to the store, but didn’t hurry! Felt good. Not the best weather day, but by afternoon the sun peeked out for a nanosecond.

All-in-all, a good, uneventful day.

Nola: Off to the land of nod. but thanks for your kudos. I am just thrilled that Mom and Dad are doing so much better! Mom of course, still has confusion but not as much of the tantrumming. I think it's just because things are stable, routine!

HUGS and enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

We are having a lovely quiet Sunday. I am just about to take us a cup of coffee out to have in the sunshine and get us some Vit D. Apart from that it is just going to be a pottering kind of day.

Karen I can just see you cruising the Car show in the 69 Riviera. All that chrome....absolutely beautiful.....brings back lots of memories. Great you and DH had a lovely day and your Mom is in a happy place. emoticon

Barb wonderful that your Mum is settling down into the routine. You are doing a great job getting some stability into their lives. It must be a relieve to your Dad to see and feel all this happening. Your Mum will feel great after the trim emoticon

Wendy what are you up to today. I was just thinking, could you have made that big shopping trip to Whyalla and stood at the March yesterday this time last year? I bet it would have been a huge effort. You are doing so well.

Dorothy did you have a good free Saturday? I wish I was a bit closer, I would rent your camp and sit and gorge on blueberries emoticon

Coffee is calling, I'll look in again tonight. emoticon

Wendy and Nola: Glad your Anzac Days were special!

Saturday – Busy day. Cut Mom’s hair (just a bit of a trim) per her request. YIKES. Had a pretty “together” day. Hope that lasts. I can see so much improvement since she’s come here. So glad.

Got an outdoor walk in early this morning. Feels so good. At least the sun was out yesterday afternoon. Not today! Oh well, but no precip.

What a great Anzac Day. It was as though Australia thumbed its nose at the terrorists and turned out in their thousands. emoticon

Wendy how lovely to see Brodie marching with the scouts. I bet grandma looked quite spunky in her new gear. I think an update photo should be on your "to do" list.

Karen have a lovely day at the Car Show. Great you can pop in on your Mom as well. emoticon

Dorothy have a great free weekend. Hope you have some garden time emoticon

Barb so good you can see the improvement in your Mum. She must be feeling more settled.
Have a lovely weekend. emoticon

It is late. Took time out to watch "The Water Diviner" with Russel Crowe which was good.

Now off to bed. Have a good Saturday and I'll catch you all tomorrow emoticon

perfect day, the rain held off until tonight. Saw Brodie with the Scouts and he looked so proud of himself to be there, (so was Grandma). Excellent turnout for the event.

Been out all day. I must say I think I looked very nice in my new clothes. I must get a updated photo of me.

Otherwise shared 3 pm “something-something” with Mom and Dad! Wahoo!

Dorothy: Yes, a big hallelujah that it continues with at least a few good days!

Glad you had such a nice lunch. And hurray for a free weekend.

Karen: Cold and wet here, too. UGH SPRING . . . MIA again.

Happy Saturday and catch up with the rest of you later!

Friday – Mom had a really good day! Alert, a little confused, but no meltdowns, no panics.

Have to do major grocery shopping today, then that will be done.

Monday and Tuesday next week are going to be very busy, so will try to get ahead tomorrow and the weekend.

HUGS

Karen: Glad your labs came back good!

Nola: Happy Anzac Day!!! Glad Don got his hearing aid taken care of.

Wendy - hope all goes well for Brodie in the parade - have fun watching!

Karen - yea for good blood work - now you can concentrate on the trains and mom.

Barb - glad your dad made it back safely and is still standing!

The guys I work with are taking me out to lunch today - so nice! Good way to end the work week.

I hope so, it is supposed to be raining. I do hope it holds off until after the parade. At least it is cooler as I remember the time Jason (son) marched with the Army Cadets he nearly passed out due to being very warm. We talked about this yesterday when Jason told me about Brodie. Should be no problem for Brodie. if anything he will be cold.

Karen that is good about the bloodwork being Ok. Roll on the summer. Have a good Friday emoticon

Dorothy great that your boss appreciates you. So sad he is retiring. I hope you get a good replacement.

We had a big day out doing Dons hearing appointment, and then hitting the big shops to get our food replenished. I called in at the good fruit and veg place I like and got lots. So it is healthy living for me. emoticon

Tomorrow is Anzac Day, which goes all day with Dawn services starting at 5.45, current and exservice people parading, and mammoth crowds everywhere in the Country. As you can imagine everyone is on edge thinking terrorist attacks, with one that was planned just stopped this last week. I'll be glad when it is all over and everyone is safely back in their homes. emoticon

Karen - ouch on the toes - sounds painful - be sure and take extra good care of them. And I am sure you have that wave down to perfection. Sure hope your mom is feeling better.

Barb - glad you made it through day one without your dad. When will he be back? Glad things are starting to settle down into a good routine. We woke up to snow on the vehicles this morning but thankfully it is not sticking to the ground.

Nola - hope your day is good at the red cross. The banquet was nice - a bit crowded but the food and drinks were good. emoticon And came home with some money as well.

My boss bought me a beautiful orchid yesterday for Administrative Assistant day - he is a great boss but he is planning on retiring in December - sure will miss him.

I did need new glasses but of course you have to pay before you can order them. They don't tell you that when you make the appointment. I thought you order them and pay when you pick them up.

I went into Millers and made a hole in my bank balance, LOL. but I needed what I bought. some nice warm jumpers.

Update on Mr Bunny, still in fridge and still in one piece. I can't ever remember having chocolate in my fridge for this long before (20 days) wow. Not even tempted.

A long day but an enjoyble one.

Barb, glad you have a box of tricks and I am glad they worked this time. Can't be easy for anyone involved but I know your Mum is in the best of care with you. Hugs. Look after yourself though.

Hope you had a lovely day Nola.

Karen thanks for the link. I am going to take my time going through all those photos. I just love Steam trains. Great your Mom is so close that you can just go and be with her when she needs you.

Wendy have you got your feet up after your big shopping day?? Hope you had fun. I bet you are tired.

Dorothy are you over your banquet yet?

Thursday – Dad went to IL yesterday. Mom did not deal w/that well @ all. Definitely employed all the tools in my “box of tricks” and kept her reasonably calm. Fortunately Dad made it home safe-and-sound. That was my biggest concern. So, onward w/Thursday!

Got a walk in early, and boy did my brain need it! So, I’ll keep moving and taking care of me too.

Hope it’s a good day for you!

Karen: So sorry to hear your Mom is still feeling ill.

Catch up with the rest of your beauties later!
