Well, here it is almost 2 months since I last blogged. Just thought I'd let any interested parties know what's going on in my life.
Would you believe that my son and his family have STILL not moved? They're moving into a home that had been in foreclosure. One of the reasons for the stall is that *they* couldn't find the deed of foreclosure! I don't understand why they didn't just get a duplicate. Well, they finally "found it" and the closing is set for "any time now", which is what they've been saying for 3 MONTHS! We're all a little aggravated and my son and his family's lives are on hold till who knows when. They're mostly packed up and nowhere to go! BUT, they got to visit us for 10 days and sprang a surprise on us on our anniversary (41 years). They're going to have a baby in October! This will make 5 for them - carrying on a family tradition: *my* mother had 5 kids; *hubby's* mother had 5 kids; his *sister* has 5 kids; now *they'll* have 5 kids. That'll make 10 grandkids (counting one in Heaven) for us. Ain't that GRAND! Hope they get in their new home SOON!
We went to my older daughter's last week for a few days. My dh and our s-i-l went fishing Monday and Tuesday and caught 30 fish - all but 1 were crappie, the best fish around IMHO. They took a grandchild each time and *they* caught fish, too! The rains set in Wednesday, so that was it for the fishing, but we managed to while away the time. We played 42 - a domino game. Anyone know how to play it? Well, I'm just a beginning player and not real good, but my dh is a pro and we managed to win 5 out of 7 games. That's exciting to me; they might let me play again! Thurs., we had a fish fry and my daughter baked me a cake and it was an early birthday party for me (my b.d. is Wed.)
Sometime soon we're going to try to visit our daughter in FL soon and also plan to visit my brother in NC, as well as our son in GA. Summer is busy around here. We're taking full advantage of my dh's retirement.
