Goodness, Gini! Be careful.

My house needs a bit of straightening,too. I skipped my dusting day and the floors need a good sweeping and vacuuming.
Going to have to take an hour break from lessons and get that caught up! I also need to get a walk or swim in. Was going to go swimming today but it's not working out too well.
But I've been squeezing some fitness 'moments' in between the tasks or while waiting for someone. So that's good.

And we all lived happily ever after...

Hooray for new AC! I hate being hot.

DH pointed out that they've started me on a beta blocker, and that when he was on a beta blocker he felt exhausted. I'm going to give it one more week, and hope it straightens itself out.

Ask for help. You need to take care of you.
New a.c.feels so good. We might hit 90 here and it's very humid so just in time.

Yes, I am fine now. I do need to make a list of all the groups my husband should alert if something happens.

Lots of follow-up appointments with doctors in the coming weeks. And so much work to do. I know I'm not completely recovered yet because I look around at the mess and think, "Meh." Trying to be good to myself.

Gini, how scary. So GLAD you are back home. Does anyone at home know how to let us know if something happens? We could have been praying for you. You be careful.
Got some things accomplished yesterday at my mom's but still lots to do. Thinking of hiring someone to help me. I think I have found someone who could use some of the furniture left at my mom's. Sure hope so.

Sorry I've been missing; I just got out of the hospital. I had an allergic reaction to wheat that cascaded into what they thought was congestive heart failure (mild anaphylasis caused my heart to go out of rhythm, water in the lungs and around the heart). Fortunately, every is fine now.

But oy vey is my house a mess! I was in the hospital for five days, and we had just gotten back from a weekend away and I hadn't unpacked the bags. I got some of it picked up, but this is going to take a while. No rage cleaning for me at the moment!

Susan, probably not the reaction that he wants and probably won't fix any problems there. I don't mind those swiffer cloths. I will be using quite a few this weekend if I tackle the pollen on the front porch. But I would rather loss that stuff anyhow.

Watched them. They were both good.


I had just bought a Swiffer a couple of months ago and thought, BOY! I'm going to go through those disposable cloths REALLY FAST! So when I saw that she attached a microfiber cloth to hers, I was excited.
btw, I HATE HATE HATE the feel of micro-fiber towels. How about you?

LECATES, One of the Problem Boys at the children's home, snuck out a window, went to the administration building and trashed the Top Guys office.

(trying not to laugh) Do you suppose THAT will get the administration's attention?

It just seems to be getting worse every year. And so many parents are not doing their job at home which makes our job even harder.
Sure hoping for a better week but doubt it will be.

The response to abuses in the past has been a disturbing overreaction. I really feel for anyone who has to work with kids these days.

It's amazing how many rights they have and the rest of us have none. And no one seems to care how they take learning away from the other kids.
I was so tired from all the outside work yesterday. I was asleep by 7.

yeah, my husband works at a children's home. The administration has made rules which make it impossible for the staff to control the kids. My hubby keeps warning them that they will probably get sued if they don't make changes. He is looking for a new job. He doesn't want to SEE someone die, and he's tired of watching 80% of the staff getting hurt by the kids, and he certainly doesn't want SUED. Last Fall, he already had to get a girl out of tree who tried to hang herself. She just barely made it.

I understand. Right now I need to get rid of some stress. Newest kid in class is ruining our classroom and tension is high. He even got the other assistant and the teacher fighting with each other on Thursday. I am taking some time off next week to escape from the tension.

Today, April 24, is a sorta-significant birthday for me.

Midnight loomed. Hubby came into my office, we had the countdown.

And then he played "Welcome to the 60s," from Hairspray. And we laughed and danced all the way through.

Birthdays don't get much better than that.

Began going through some old writings that I want to organize into my writing drawer. Saw a couple things written about my kids when they did or said something really cute. It was fun to go through them.
I have a journal for recording 'this and that's' and I'm going to enter them into that, so I can throw away the loose papers.

Finally tackled the stuff piled on the dining room table---a lot of it was paperwork from when my mom was at the hospital and rehab center that needed to be shredded. Other stuff was moved to the spare room---I can see most of the table now. Our youngest son came by and built the new raised bed for us---only took him about 1/4 the time it would have taken dh and I---LOL

Lecates, of course not! Not when it can be organized *better*!

I've just been sewing this weekend, though the boxes of stuff to go are now in the car. Now it's just a matter of finding a day to drop them off.

Gini, LOL---you just can't leave it alone?
Susan, always something we need.
I did some outside cleaning yesterday---weeded beds, cleaned up old dried stuff out of the beds, and raked leaves away from the back steps and along the patio. We did drop off the last of the donation stuff from my mom's house at Good Will yesterday, too.

I should be able to keep the genie room clean. Just fold my arms and nod and blink. It should do the trick!

I bring you good news of great joy! I found PHOTO paper among Hubby's things! I'm so excited about that because I've been printing out pics to hang in my living room.
....now I need more ink. nuts!

And we all lived happily ever after...

Good job, Susan! Next you can wait and see if anything from that genie room comes back out. If not, time to clear that out!

DD the Younger is gone, and everything is put away, save for one tub of items I need to donate and one box of books and DVDs to take to Half Price. Of course, her idea of packing things back up is pretty sloppy--which makes me happy! It means I can go back in there and reorganize it and maybe get the stuff she left in the top of another closet into the storage closet.

I went thru all the stuff I had piled on the coffee table---some went in a recycle bag, some trash, and some in a neat pile---bills to be paid today---plus all the sympathy cards all together.

Ohhh I got a LOT done in that library. It looks nice and spacious now. Then I was able to get rid of 3 large empty boxes and an old desk drawer that held Hubby's genealogy research. I filed those back in the genie room.

Woo hoo!

Good decision---glad we helped--- emoticon I used to enjoy just going thru the encyclopidias and look at the pictures and if something caught my interest, I read up on it-0--probably why I became a history major---but nowadays, kids just do that on the computer---but don't have the opportunity to view things that they didn't know they would be interested in.
Got 2 things off my list of things to do in preparation to settle my mom's estate---why we would call it an estate as it isn't that much---LOL
Horrible day at school the last 2 days---ready for this week to be over!

OKIE DOKIE! They are GONE. OUT OF HERE.
I asked the son who is in charge of Trash, if there was ANY room at all in those outside trash cans. He said there was, so I grabbed our large wagon, loaded them up and my other son (he just happens to be the Life Guard, which is just soooo ironic, because he's saving my life) is taking them out.
I said, "See how many can fit in those garbage cans (pick-up is conveniently tomorrow!), and then just keep the rest out there...DO NOT BRING THEM BACK IN!!!!"

soooo....YEA MEEEEE!

And we all lived happily ever after...

Actually, I'm rarely in it! But I enjoy looking at my living room from afar. It's the best, the most uncluttered room in the house.

Today, I've been analyzing my Library/Dining Room/School Room. Trying to find the best place to put this new chaise lounge.
We've had an old computer/monitor/keyboard lying in a corner for awhile. We don't use it because it kept getting jammed....years ago...and Hubby keeps saying he's going to update everything. But it's just collecting dust. The spot it was in was the perfect place for my small filing cabinet that I keep my children's Assessment Portfolio's in, so I got to work.
I decided to have my son SHOVE (kinda) the computer stuff under my mom's desk back in the genealogy room. And that worked well.
Then we cleaned up the space and put the filing cabinet there. Looks much better.

But MEANWHILE...the computer had been on top of an old drawer...and IN that drawer were all my husband's old-fashioned photos we've been looking for, so we could frame some for the living room. lol
Love when that happens.
Glad I found it, because HE was about to go through his entire closet in searching for them!

I have some books in boxes that are always in the way, but not enough shelves.
I'm considering getting rid of the encyclopedia set to make some room.
I don't want to, but they are old (older ones are probably best,actually)...and I got them from a neighbor...they don't hold sentimental value to me...
I have reason I want to keep them, but IF I JUST GET RID OF THEM, THAT WILL BE ONE LESS THING OFF MY BACK. RIGHT?

Okay. Thanks for helping me decide! You all are the BEST!

Susan, my baby turned 28 on Saturday. Sounds like you have been enjoying the living room too much---LOL
Gina, glad that you are holding firm to just the one are for her stuff.
I got a new computer Friday night and my son set it up for me---so I did have to clean my desk on Saturday---shredded stuff that needed to be done and then tackled some old checks of my mom's that I brought home to shred and got that done. Also found a home for a few items sitting on the table.
I need to reorganize my necklaces soon--but I koow I won't part with too many---LOL

That's cool.
I keep meaning to get back there and organize some things that came up from the basement and were put in the 'genealogy/craft' room. but something always prevents me.
I have been quite lax on my fitness quest lately. Trying to get back into the swing of things.

Just been really busy, and choosing sewing over SparkPeople in my spare time!

DD the Younger is packing up to move back east for a while. This means going through her stored stuff so that she can store MORE stuff. But she knows the limitations are to one set of shelves in the basement, so we are getting rid of quite a bit.

Applying build-up remover and lemon oil polish to four poster bed. One blind cleaned and top half of 1 window washed, then the sun moved in. Going to go & finish that window shortly.

One of my sisters bought me JoAnne's gift cards. I purchased some various alphabet stencils because I like to paint signs but I'm not very good with the writing. I was able to buy a bunch. Then I purchased a large frame to place my paternal grandma and grandpa's photo in.

In my new living room, all the photos are of weddings from my family members before me. I have 4 generations right now. They include both sides of MY family, as well as both sides of HUBBY'S family...so there's quite a bit.

I love including family photos. Keeps a person grounded to their heritage, all the while looking forward to the future. :)

Gini: I had never heard about "Swedish Death Cleaning" but, after Googling it, I realize I've been doing that for awhile now.

A big part of our Lions Club donations for our quarterly yard sales come from the estates of the recently departed. It's a reminder of how much unnecessary stuff we save (along with the good stuff) and always motivates me to either clean out some of my clutter or just refrain from adding to it.

HELLO!!!

I'm back from Norway after having a wonderful trip.I'm jet lagged and sore and happy, all at the same time. I was appalled to learn that Norwegians complain of the same clutter problems that we have! Swedish Death Cleaning has apparently not reached them.

Found them, Susan. I just hadn't scrolled down far enough. Nifty photos. Especially liked the one you called "one of the finales" -- so family-friendly, it looks like it has something for everyone!

Thank you for that info.

Thanks for the kind words. My living room has been waiting a long time for a make-over. She deserves to get a pat on the back. lol

And we all lived happily ever after...

I have laminate flooring in my kitchen and laundry area. Had two water issues but so far so good. Also had it in kitchen at previous home. I love the look and the ease in care. Any floor can get ruined in a flood.

I believe standing water can damage those types of floors. DD had water leak in kitchen and it's messed hers up. However yours isn't in a area such as kitchen , bathroom, or utility room where that is likely to happen. I wouldn't recommend for those types rooms but I would think in you family/living room it would work fine. By the way, nice looking room Susan.

Try again, Linda. they are there.

Thanks, Lecates.
It's so peaceful in there! The sound is no longer echo-y, now that it's furnished properly. That floor must help a lot.
My neighbor, who always has something to warn me about, said that HERS got ruined by water damage. I guess we'll see! Hope it lasts, it cost about $600 at Home Depot. We have nothing bad to say yet, this whole first week! lol

Am I missing something? I was expecting home decor photos of your living room but didn't find any. I do congratulate you, however, on your swimming accomplishment. So glad you pushed yourself to hit that birthday goal!

And it was soooo comfy. The walk to the bathroom in the middle of the night was a bit lonnnng...a comparative difference of about 30 feet...so that was scary.

But oh how beautiful the room is.
I'm working on uploading some pictures. But I'm hoping one of my daughters emails me some from her phone, because they were probably better.

DID IT!

I swam 1 mile in the morning, then the other after hubby went to work. Boy, that second mile took a while! (I'm editing this to acknowledge that I rhymed just now.)

So YEA!!!!! 75 MILES COMPLETE!


Also, got that living room done!
I do have some minor things to do: attach the 'hold-backs' for the curtains, hang some photos, and Hubby has to hook up the electric in the basement, for the fireplace insert.
The room looks SOOO nice. Warm and inviting. (just like my imagination of it. I so rock!)
I need two tiny tables yet. Just something next to my chair and on one end of the loveseat so we have a place to set drinks on or whatever.
My 15 yr old son was like, "MOM! We can NOT eat in here!"
And I was like, "Uh...just you try to picture us NOT eating in here. Not possible. We're not like that. We like our dvd's and snacking."

So now we are just cleaning up the Aftermath from around the rest of the house; finding new places for everything now that we can SPREAD OUT.

Hubby came home from work and saw the room and LOVED it. Though he said it was so different and classy , it was hard to believe it was OUR house.lol
It's nice to have something like this realized.
I really am tempted to sleep in there tonight. lol
Although it IS in direct view of the staircase where everyone will see me...and laugh.
But hey, it's my FIFTIETH!

I'm GONNA!

Nightio!

So nice to have you back in such a joyous mood, Susan. Now it's Thursday -- go get those 2 miles done. You'll be so very proud of yourself (and well-deserved!).

You know what I just simply loved, loved, LOVED? Reading this from Lecates:

"Have a Susan type story."

I must be FAMOUS!!!!!

Anyway, here's a HUG for everyone going through stuff.
emoticon

Here's some strength for taking care of 'MOM'.
emoticon emoticon


If you haven't read my recent blog, do so, if you want an update to how I feel with the whole 'yucky February' thing.

I'm feeling pretty good right now.

And guess what. lol, yes, you'll probably laugh at me...I'm always jamming things in at the last minute.
My period is over, I'm free to swim....just in time to finish my last 2 miles out of 75 BEFORE turning 50. That means I've got just THURSDAY to swim 2 miles! lol I suppose I can do it...
I figure maybe I'll swim twice. Once in the morning, then come home and help Hubby with the living room, and then go swimming again after he leaves for work at 1:30.

If I manage to accomplish this I would be sooo happy. I seriously wanted to be done with my 75th mile before my b-day. And THEN I'm hoping to finish the 100th mile by June 10th. That's my 2 yr. anniversary of when I began the challenge. I had no idea it would take this long! I had wanted to get done by LAST YEAR'S b-day.

The living room project is on the final stretch. The painting is finished and the floor is in. My mom and dad's wedding gift clock has been wired and hung.
I think we might be spraying Scotch Guard on the area rug tonight.

Hubby has to install the fireplace insert, and add an electrical outlet next to it.
We have to touch up some paint.
Oh, I've got the curtains hung....and now we are waiting for the couch to come in so we can see how low/high to attach the 'hold-backs'.
It is soooooo pretty in there!

The new floor makes the rest of the house feel dirty, lol, you know the story...If you give a mouse a cookie...he's going to want a glass of milk...
I just betcha Hubby will eventually mention getting new flooring in some other rooms, too.

Okay, well, gotta get off and visit the hubster. he just came home from work.
Nightio!

Thanks, all, for your concern. I'm pleased to say that that pain (that was minimal to begin with) and the itching have all but disappeared. Still dealing with the sores that are crusting up, but if I had to experience this -- I was very fortunate in having a mild case. Again, thanks.

This week most of my efforts are going into other people's clutter. That's all about setting up the tables inside our Lions clubhouse with items for our yardsale at the end of the week.

What's everybody else up to? It's kind of quiet on this site this week.

I'm sorry about the shingles Jajabee. I have a cousin who got them this year before
Christmas and still has them. Mother had them years ago and seemed like they lasted a long time. DH and myself took the shot this past summer. Just hope your goes away sooner. Take care.

I had a mild case a few years ago. Painful but they put me on a small dose of prednisone and it helped with the nerve pain. You will have to wait for a while but then you can have the shingles vaccine. Hope yours is similar to mine.
Sure hope this week doesn't throw any more curve balls at any of us.

Hey, this is NOT the way to do the month of March. Sounds like we're all having all sorts of problems. If you happened to read my blog yesterday -- I've got my first (and hope only) outbreak of shingles. Not too bad fortunately.

MCCALI: So very sorry for your loss.

Cathy: You've got your hands full. Do make sure you get your break time.

Susan: So glad you're back. You might do best to see a doctor. Years back when I had problems like you describe it turned out to be a fibroid tumor. I was in perimenopause at the time so it was double-barreled.

Hope this week works out well for all of us.

That could be true.
She isn't doing too good right now. Her speech is way to garbled now. And I just made my Dh go to the clinic as I think he has bronchitis. My sister sent me home for a while so I did get clean sheets on my bed and we went out for a good meal.

LECATES — It's great that she was okay with the teasing. That bed sounds like it had a mind of its own, perhaps to lift all of your spirits a bit.

Have a Susan type story. My mom is laying in the bed napping and we start to hear funny noise. We figured out it was the bed and thought my mom was trying to adjust it but we saw she couldn't reach the controller. The bed kept going down and it continues to try even when it reached the floor. They had to get my mom a new bed. The joke of the day was that my mom broke her bed. She only weighs 140 lbs. She enjoyed being teased about that.

Lacates, I'm sorry about your Mother. So good of you to take care of her. I know it's a handful to take on such a responsibility. I hope you have someone who can relieve you once in a while. Would not be good for your own health to give out because your to busy to take care of your own needs. God bless you, may he provide. Hope she gets better and can enjoy the days given.

Wow, you have had a rough week. I'm sorry to hear about your mom.

I jammed my wrist yesterday--rammed the ends of my fingers into a door I thought was open. Jarred me up to the elbow. It's not swollen, but it is tender and hurts when I turn it certain ways. Can't really lift much. At least it's the left....

LOL, sounds like an orchestra warming up?
My mom will be coming to stay so the spare room will be tackled. We need a hospital bed in there so lots need to go or be moved. Will have hospice help. They are moving her to rehab so I have time to do the room. She had another stroke this week but is actually surprising the doctors in how well she is doing. I have had a rough week.
