Good Morning All. Bob did the pre-op yesterday ( they had him come in 2 hours earlier than planned), and got that all squared away. But he was worn out and hurting by the time we got back home. It doesn't take much to wear him out. Then he got a bad stomachache during the night so I was up with him til after 5:30 this morning ( got a couple hours sleep total), so kind of dragging this morning. Be rreally glad once the surgery is over and Bob's life gets back to our normal routine.
The battery lasts 5-10 years depending on how many appisodes he has in that time frame. His current battery lasted 6 years.

If the plan doesn't work, change the plan, not the goal.
My goal is to be healthier, period !

Vicki, Praying all goes well on Thursday for you and Bob.

Glad to have you join us.

Nina, yikes a spider bite. Glad it is being taken care of.

Hi to Glenna .
Sure hope you can get the water line fixed.

My leg, and knee especially, hurts 24/7, sometimes more than other days, but always hurts. I can hardly wait until surgery in Aug.

Today was not a good pain day. Praying tomorrow will be better,.

I try to not complain about it each day, but when I can hardly walk from the pain, it is sure hard.

Good afternoon/evening everyone,

Nina, Glad the spider bite is getting better. Sounds like you have been busy, as usual.

Jan, You certainly were a busy bee today. You got a lot accomplished.

Patty, so sorry you are having knee pain. I looked at those Granny Square patterns and they sure are pretty. What are you going to do with yours when you have them finished? I had a pattern one time for houseslippers that used the granny squares. They were pretty.

Karen, We got just a sprinkle of rain today. But a chance of thunderstorms tonight. It looks like they are headed our way on the radar that I saw. And a chance most days this week. It is very hot and humid here today.

Iris, How are you doing? and your sweet kitties?

Vicki, We will be thinking of you and Bob. I didn't realize the batteries would last that long in those. It is good that they do. Also good that he doesn't have to stay too long at the hospital.

I have had some problems with the water line that brings water into my house. I think it must have a hole in it somewhere between the house and the cistern. So hopefully will get a new line put in and take care of that problem. I worked this afternoon rather than this morning since I was working on things for the water line.

Vicki, It's wonderful what they can do for us and our ailments nowadays. We'll be in prayer for Bob on Thursday. And for you, too.

Karen, You've been through it with Rolland and know the outcome is good.

Nina, I can't believe you forgot us yesterday! But with the spider bite and all I can see how that can happen. Sounds like the Benadryl is taking care of it. Some cruise ships have maybe 800 some passengers and some are more like 3000. It sure makes for a lot of folks walking along the river walk and downtown.

Hi ladies

I guess I totally forgot to post yesterday. I was home all day so do not know why I forgot. But yes I am ok. I got a spider bite Saturday and it really swelled my arm and was angry looking. We thought I might have to go to the clinic today. DH had me take a Benadril last night and use benadril cream on it. Today it is much better so took ½ of another benadril and will take a whole one tonight.

We did have to go to town this morning. DH had to pick up a prescription and I had to get my yogurt I left at DS's house. We were home by 12:30. We did eat at Taco Bell and I had Taco supremes. They sure tasted good.

Supper – Hamburgers on Whole Wheat bun
Nina's Potato Relish Salad. That is whatcall it because I make them up as I go and then if I like it I copy it on a recipe card.
Some kind of veggie salad
maybe a jell-o salad for dessert.

Jan – boy 2,000 people is a lot of people. Do they invade your town like the people that come up here for the summer? WOW you got a lot done today.

Karen – hope you find some things you do not care you have to part with. I sure need to do some organizing and get rid of things.

Patty – so sorry about the knee owweyyy today. What fun 365 granny squares. They sure were cool looking.

Vickie – hi, it will be fun to see you on here and chat with you. I think we all have medical issues we have to deal with in our group. It is hard when it is our spouses, or for me it is. I tend to worry too much.

Well I better go make those salads emoticon

Sounds like everyone is busy today. Bob went in today for his pre-op work before having outpatient surgery EARLY Y=Thursday morning. They're replacing his battery for his pacer/defib combo. First time since he got it in 2013. His heart is very weak ( half is dead) so the sooner he gets the new battery, the better. They'll have to put him to sleep for it under the circumstances but they say he'll probably be able to come back home within 2-3 hours of the surgery.

If the plan doesn't work, change the plan, not the goal.

Karen, I have a hard time lifting things into the back of the pickup even with the tail gate open so rely on Bruce or Troy to help me and then hope they don't go looking in the boxes!

I've got some peaches that smell just heavenly. I'm waiting for snack time or maybe lunch to slice up one- makes my mouth water!

Bruce got called to work so I'm in the midst of Monday stuff. 2 loads of laundry. Mopped floors, cleaned sink, toilets next, cleaned kitchen counter on one side - other side next.

Karen, Do you have someone to help you haul stuff away when you decide you don't need it? I'm ready to send another batch to GW. Rain days are good for getting things done inside.

Patty, So sorry about another injury to knee. Love chicken & rice. Have fun with the granny squares.

Hi Girls,

Hubby went to town to pick up my presc.
We went to town at least 3 times last week, and should have remembered it then...oh well.

Laundry today, 5 loads...

chicken and rice in crock pot for supper.
As the rice is already cooked, I will add it in the end, and not put the milk in the pot.

It is in Potful

I have now made 3 granny squares from 365 granny squares. I want to make a couple more today, the only problem is I need to do it with a video, not a pattern. Not my favorite way to work a pattern.

I hurt my knee again last night,

My toe was hanging over the edge of the bed, the cat came to bat at it, and I jerked my leg back, and voila, instant pain. ow ow ow

Have a good day Girls.

Looks like another day of rain. I am doing laundry & working in utility room. Seeing what I might want to part with. I pulled a few weeds as ground is wet so they pull easy. Hope Nina checks in today.

Good morning girls,

How is everyone today?

We missed Nina yesterday, I hope she is okay.

Vicki, Feel free to join right in with us.

When I walked out to the back yard there was a light misty rain but it's just supposed to be cloudy today. Most cloudy days are morning and early afternoon, then sunny late afternoon.

There was a cruise ship in yesterday. Our son told us it had about 2,000 people. I didn't hear it arrive but when it leaves it sounds the horn in a melodic way that's sort of fun.

Today is Monday house blessing and I need to get the guest room ready. It's been piling up with things our kids want to keep and also some things for a garage sale.

I hope you are all having a good day.
