Eva - emoticon Wonder Woman indeed!
Sounds like you made an excellent team (even though his idea didn't work). emoticon
I so agree 'cronedom' is a unique experience and will come to each of us in its own time.

We found the vent so no roof repair!

Feline: I love a good rainy day. Your little one will learn to love them too. Miss B. always enjoyed catching rain in her hand.

Kali: I hope you enjoyed bridge. My friend was an accountant for a private non-profit for years. She said that accounting can be a nightmare, but her auditors loved her.


Oh I know I"m aways from cronedome. But I don't think it's an age. I think it's an attitude that comes as you age. Like many other things, it arrives when it's your time.

Sunday we had to cut down a dead tree. It was leaning the wrong way just to cut it. We didn't want it to land on the fence. So while Jim used the chainsaw (I can use the short bar but this one is a long bar and HEAVY) I had to direct the tree by keeping tension on the rope since his "pulley like system" didn't work. (I told him it wouldn't.) Essentially I pulled down a 14 ft tree after his final cut. Then we racked the wood to dry for use in the fire pit. Nothing makes you feel like wonder woman (as in I wonder what I've gotten myself into by being a know it all) like making a tree fall where you want it.

Eva - I love the emoticon I'll bet it tasted as good as it looks! You've got a long way to go to 'cronedom', but enjoy the journey getting there.
emoticon
Feline - glad you got out on Saturday - it was a gorgeous day! I was able to get a little yardwork Sunday morning before the rain started, but was delighted as we could always use the moisture.

In the Credit Union this morning and playing bridge this afternoon. Worked on Medicare accounting yesterday. I'm so glad I finally put it all in order... And I'm also glad I'm not yet confused. Amazingly complex. The good news is that even though we've met our deductibles, the insurers are still ahead and here's to our continued good health!

Eva: That cake looks delicious! I have been craving chocolate for days now. I don't have cake, but I am having a chocolate protein shake for breakfast today.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I went for a walk on Saturday with my husband and son. It was my sons first time in his stroller and he slept through the entire walk, lol. It got hotter than I expected for the morning so I kept it to one lap around the neighborhood, but it was nice to get outside. On Sunday a friend came over and we watched a Disney movie and two documentaries while little guy slept. It was a grey, rainy day and he slept a LOT. I love that kind of weather, but I guess he's more a sunshine boy.

Feline: Congrats on the loss! I imagine you felt empowered to see the scale go down.

I really hope they figure out how to treat your little man without surgery. Controlling the congestion may do wonders for his hearing.

Kali: We have a plumbing vent up there too. It's odd. Particularly since our plumbing runs under the house. They had originally planned to put the hot water heater up there. Anyway if yours is functioning it will cause backups, so yea you want it ope and clear.

I think all women have the prime of their lives when they become "crones". That's the point when they have sewn their oats and they no longer five 2 cents what the neighbors think. LOL So I'm thinking maybe you and your mother are right.

Miss B. made me a lovely yellow cake with cocoa buttercream for my birthday dinner with my mom on Saturday night.

Eva - emoticon The last of your 30s! My mom told me a woman didn't come into her own until she was 45 and considering the healthy lifestyles we have now - I'd say that's @ minimum 50.
Feline - glad to hear no more paperwork issues and the emoticon is going emoticon
I hope the ENT's medication gets the congestion under control and the September hearing test shows improvement.

Roof work (membrane - flat roof) was wrapping up today and thank goodness one of my guardian angels whispered that a roof 'drain' we covered was actually a plumbing vent. (I couldn't figure out why they'd put a drain @ a high point and should have thought of it earlier, but @ least we can get it taken care of before we ended up having other problems.) The guys thought they had enough pictures to figure out where the vent was, but need to think about a solution. The project manager is on vacation, so we'll learn more next week.

Kali: Third time was the charm, they haven't mentioned the paperwork again! We took photos of the completed paperwork last time just in case, though. That way we had proof it was filled out since they said they couldn't take him into the infant room at all without the paperwork.

Eva: emoticon I hope you have lots of fun and enjoy the last year of your thirties! Thank you for the welcome, I missed you, too. It sounds like you had lots of fun on your trip! And how cool is being a magicians assistant?!
Little dude failed both his hearing tests in the hospital, and his referral test after he was released, so he got referred to an ENT and for a fourth hearing test. The ENT says he has congenital small ear canals (she couldn't even see his ear drums) and she might have to put him under to get a better look and see what's going on. We tried the hearing test yesterday, but he didn't want to sleep (he was SUPER angry about the ENT poking around his ears and nose) and he's so congested they couldn't get a could reading. From what they did get it looks like he's still got a mild to moderate hearing loss so he's scheduled for a follow up with the ENT and another hearing test in September. The ENT diagnosed him with Laryngomalacia and Laryngopharyngeal Reflux so he might need surgery to fix that, but in the meantime he needs medication to try to control it and get his congestion under control.

I have lost 3lbs this week! I hope I keep losing like this, it's so nice to see the scale inching downwards instead of upwards. Next week I plan on boosting my workouts with videos. I took it easy this week by just working on the recumbent bike since it's my first week back to working out, but I'm going to do some standing exercises next week and we'll see how that goes.

emoticon Feline! I've missed you!

I hope the ENT and audiologist goes well. What happened to little man's hearing in the fist place?

Enjoy your strolls with him in cooler weather. And try to be patient with yourself. It took 9 months to gain that weight. It will take a similar amount of time to lose it.

I hope you and DH find something to do for your anniversary. New mom's and dads deserve a date.

Kali: Shingles or metal roof?

We got back from Hot Springs late Tuesdays afternoon. While there we toured the bathhouses, went on a Duck Boat ride, Brenna was a magician's assistant, hiked a little, and stopped by by Little Rock and visited the Clinton Presidential Center were we saw Washed Ashore. And art exhibit with sculptures found on the beaches of Oregon. My blog has a few of the pictures. I made over 100!

Yesterday we did the grocery shopping, dropped proof of residence at the school, finished school clothes shopping, and cut the grass.

Jim's back at work today and I'm over here busy turning 39. During all that running around Jim and Brenna took me to lunch. Saturday is "cake day" My side of the family is coming over for dinner and Brenna is making me a scratch cake.

Hope the third time is a charm for your daycare registration and hope you can take the baby out this weekend.
Keeping fingers crossed for a good result from the ENT and audiologist. Sending good thoughts and prayers your way.
Glad you'll be getting out to celebrate your anniversary. It will be a great break for just the two of you.

Getting our roof replaced, so the weather couldn't be better. They plan to finish tomorrow, so we'll be waterproofed in case it rains.

Mercury is currently in retrograde, which could probably explain why the daycare has lost our registration paperwork twice. We had to fill it all out for the third time this morning! They have a new director who appears to be less organized than the previous director.

I am looking forward to this weekend and the weather possibly cooperating with taking baby out in his stroller. He's so sleepy after daycare I want to just let him rest, but I think it would be a nice treat on the weekend rather than just staying on the couch all day. He's got his playmat, but he hasn't experienced much outdoors beyond going to and from the car. It should be fun.

Tomorrow we see the ENT and audiologist for a physical exam and a fourth hearing test to see if we can determine if little ones hearing loss is permanent or not, and perhaps locate a cause for it. He's had a lot more awake time lately and he has to sleep for an entire hour for the test so we'll see how that goes. He seems to be hearing better - he certainly notices the noise at daycare! - so maybe the test results will be good.

Hubby and I wanted to go see Lion King on the 4th for our anniversary, but all the theaters stop playing it on the 1st. Our favorite theater only has two (not so great) movies playing that day, so we're still trying to figure out what we want to do. I am find with staying at home, but I think he wants to get out and do something since we've been so homebound lately.

We had storms and rain on Sunday, but yesterday was beautiful. Last week was awful with a heat index of around 115 most days, but this week is looking much nicer. High 70s and low 80s, with one day peaking at 91. I'm hoping to take advantage this weekend and introduce baby to his stroller.

We got a flat tire so no exercise this morning, but since school hasn't started yet I can go down to the gym on my lunch break and ride the recumbent bike. We didn't get to go grocery shopping last night because of the tire so I have some higher calorie frozen meals for lunch instead of my salads. But I am drinking a protein shake this morning so hopefully it balances out.

Hey everyone, I'm back! I was supposed to be gone until the 29th on maternity leave but my work sent me an email telling me my leave was miscalculated and I needed to return today instead. I am sad - it was really hard leaving baby at the daycare this morning. I have absolutely loved staying home with him and if it were possible I'd want to do it full-time, but it will probably be good for me to get talking with adults again, lol.

And not to mention exercising again. It's been so HOT that I haven't taken him out in the stroller so I gained 69lbs during my pregnancy, then another 9lbs after. I started slow in the gym this morning with the recumbent bike and my legs ached and I was dripping sweat, but I felt so good after. I hadn't even realized how much I missed working out. I am going to keep it slow this week, with machines and short miles, but I am going to try to up it a bit next week. I'm also going to sub for an injured coworker in yoga. Gotta get rid of this baby weight! Hopefully it comes off quickly. I am sure it's stuck on mostly due to my being so sedentary with baby and kitty snuggles the last 8 weeks.

My school leave ends on August 5th and I start my comprehensive exams. From what I've read it's 8 weeks to write 4 12-page papers on currently unknown subjects. It's going to be hard, but if I pass then I am in the dissertation phase - so close to being done with school! Then I'll be Doctor GoodFeline!

August 4th is our anniversary, or what I consider our true anniversary - it's when my husband and I began dating, and our original wedding date (before I moved it to be sooner because of MIL). We'll have been together 17 years this year. We can't really afford to do anything special, but maybe I can convince my hubby to grab a $5 Hot n Ready pizza from Little Caesar's and pull up a movie on Netflix.

Dinner with friends tonight and errands tomorrow. Hoping to emoticon on Sunday. We need to decide if we want to keep our membership as we've yet to go out this year...
We shall see.
Have a great trip!

Kali: I actually prefer the old model myself. And I'm just a middle-aged dog (Is 38 middle-aged?)

I don't blame you for skipping the dinner. The walking in the heat and the eating in the a/c could make you feel sick.

I'll have to check the family search. I'm interested but I'm on the fence about investing. At least not yet. But it could be cool to see how far I can go back in the family history.

I did the mowing yesterday. You could bail it for hay. I got a wild hair and decided to try and start the push mower. It has a pull start and I haven't t won that battle in 5 years. Not since I damaged my rotator cuff. Well yesterday after 6 or 7 pulls and calling it an ugly word it cranked. So I finished the push mowing. So house and yard work are done. I can go on vacation and not think about it until I get back.

Eva - I'd say you're a wealth of knowledge! As an old dog (who doesn't like many new tricks), I preferred the holiday-holiday summer and shorter breaks during the school year. But I also preferred the 7 year primary, 3 year middle and 3 year high school model so...

We originally took 23&Me DNA tests after my bout with cancer for genetic findings. Because their population is small (and I was retiring so time for genealogy) I also took the Ancestry DNA test (over 3M and counting). I've uploaded the data into MyHeritage and trying to upload to Living DNA (small British Isles sample). The three sites show 99-100% northern Europe, but vary in % based on their sample group. If you're interested, you can start a tree for free @ familysearch.org.
emoticon continues, so we're skipping a progressive dinner tonight along 27th street. Heat index is predicted to be 110-115 (in the shade) and the thought of walking and then sitting in AC just doesn't appeal to us...

Kali: Deciphering German must have been fun to see anyway. I take it most of your family hailed from the British Isles. Any specific region?

I've never signed up for ancestory.com. I know that I'm German, Irish, and Native American, but not in what ratios. At least according to oral family history. I also know that my mother's maiden name is Hunt, but was shorted from the German name Whisenhunt when the family came to the USA.

School days were originally set up around farm schedules. Spring break was literally to break the fields. Our start dates were originally set around the end of gathering seasons. Kids got out of school just as crops were starting to come in. Of course, that was all before machinery did the work. Now, most of it is out of tradition. But the government mandates for kids to be in school for 180 days. So when you add up the breaks that they are supposed to have, including the fall break and federal holidays that didn't exist until the 1990s that are now mandatory now, it means the start and end dates had to be adjusted.

I'm such a nerd.

Eva - I've never been to Hot Springs - enjoy!
I guess since the advent of air conditioning they can change the start and end date of school. I'm glad they are taking outside temps into consideration.
We're in a 4 day 100 degree hot spell, so could use some of that rain here...

The conference was great. While a tad too detailed (including deciphering German script) it was superb in making connections and finding a Swedish research center for my BIL's family. I'm considering keeping my Ancestry account as they are transcribing more and more records. I just wish they'd focus on the British Isles...

Kali, How was the genealogy conference?

They let our kids out at the end of May so that they can enjoy some cooler temps. They will be in school during the August heat. When it's too hot for any real fun outside. It's strange. We always started back at the end of August or the first of September.

We've been dealing with the fall out from Hurricane Barry. I mowed Friday, but right now we can just squish. Too much water. Six or more inches since Saturday night.

We are off on a short trip this weekend. We're leaving Saturday and will return late Tuesday. My crew has never spent any time in Arkansas, so I'm dragging them to Hot Springs. Brenna packed last night LOL.

Eva - wow... August 5 is just around the corner.
We were blessed with a rainy, cool spring so it seems like a short summer. With temps (and humidity) reaching into the upper 90s next week, I won't be sorry to see summer go.

I do enjoy working @ the credit union. Our members are folks that are generally unbanked or underbanked, so they don't have many options to get out of financial issues. We've got some real success stories (as well as failures) and I'm finding some of the members are becoming friends. (I'm also pretty excited about learning from my mistakes - even those I've made twice...)
We (or I should say DH) emoticon last night, so I'm hoping to perform some weed maintenance and fill cracks in the concrete apron (it's crabgrass season and they are popping up).
I'm attending a genealogy conference all day Saturday after giving blood, so keep your fingers crossed Sunday isn't too emoticon

I'm glad you had a safe trip. Do you enjoy working at the credit union?

We're doing well. Dealing with the seriously high heat index, but that's life in the south. School starts back up on August 5th, so summer break is winding down. I love to see it coming, but at this point, I'm always running out of steam.

Eva - hope your 4th was fun.

Our trip was long, but it was wonderful to see the Oregon kids. They have sprouted in 2 years. We hope to get out there soon.
2 weeks of work @ the credit union filling in for a vacationing employee and then time will be mine again.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon on the top of the list!

Kali: Enjoy your trip! I will be staying right here for the 4th. And I'm not sure if I'm happy about it or not, to be honest.

emoticon Welcome to July emoticon

I'm sorry I haven't been around much the last week. My mother broke her nose, Saturday was a week ago. I've been pulling some double duty. The good news is she doesn't need any reconstructive surgery! How she just gets to wait 7 more weeks for it to heal.
