No, it is NOT a terrific Tuesday here, and y'all will probably wish I had just stayed out of sight, as I did yesterday.
My only TA-DAs for yesterday and so far today, are that I have managed to continue my record of s2s first thing. 11 days now.
DS did catch me before s2s today, but that was because he showed up before the alarm clock rang. Blessed
, it helped me so much to watch that Diane from Denmark! She said she didn't care WHEN you got out of bed, it could be 2:00 in the afternoon, but WHENEVER you got out of bed, s2s first thing then! So that made me feel less guilty for sleeping late.
But dh is sooo sick, and of course refuses to go to the doctor, and I feel sorry for him, but he is wearing on my nerves. He had said he would go to the doctor if he was no better by today, but now he says no... he doesn't want to catch something else in the waiting room!
He is going to try the whiskey/honey/lemon remedy tonight. That's why ds came by; he was kind enough to go by the liquor store and get the whiskey for dh.
Plus I don't want to vacuum or do anything that might disturb him, so yesterday -- after watching dgd from 8:30-12:30, I just curled up in the recliner and slept the rest of the day.
Today, dh was supposed to go to college town w/ds and I was supposed to have approx 4 HOURS to myself to get this house cleaned up...
but dh is too sick to go and ds, (who doesn't feel too great himself) was somewhat relieved. I guess I'm relieved that I'm not babysitting the two grands for 5 hours or so on my own tonight, but still...
(((HUGS))) to all
of you who are dealing with this mess, either yourselves or with family members.
Then of course we watched that stupid ballgame last night, and Rose's
team has to be the LUCKIEST team in the history of sports...
That's all I have to say about that... (They won in overtime, in case anyone missed it.)
I haven't even talked to dmom today about that. She will think it was The Greatest Game Ever, I am sure...
IF she stayed awake to watch it, LOL!!! Kathryn
, it sounds like y'all are having such a great trip!!! Kangaroo! I can't imagine having to watch out for kangaroo on the roads, like deer here! And eating kangaroo!
But the weather sounds sooo nice. Swimming... It just sounds beautiful!
gets to live there all the time! Lynlee
, how cold does it get in the winter?LadyM
-- whew -- your day makes me exhausted!
I wonder... I bet when stickers get switched like that, it is very seldom that anyone catches it. Unless of course, you were stopped for something else. Too bad about the penalty though.
I am blessed by the fact that dh apparently really does have a card file in his head. He is always very aware of when tags, property taxes, insurance -- everything -- is due. I would be a lot closer to dmom's level of functionality without him!
I will be glad when our new vehicle arrives. I think having a back-up camera will be a HUGE help in a vehicle this size. Dmom LOVES hers, and she drives a much smaller cross-over SUV.
Waving to blessed
I am a bit curious about what (if any) trip the xBFF decided on after realizing my family's invitation was not for a romantic getaway for her and her boyfriend (who my parents have never met). Don't care enough to call and find out though.
Good for you, Elizabeth
! The less you have to do with the xBFF, the better! I would avoid that woman like the plague!
Also -- have dd stress to principal the historical significance of Mobile's Mardi Gras! After all, it began before New Orleans' celebration, right?Rose
, did you just get enough of substituting after the long stint you had this fall, or were you planning this for a while?
We're having the cloudy, sprinkly weather Harmony
described. Sooo glad it has warmed up a bit! I went out to post office and wore a t-shirt and long-sleeved cotton shirt over it. Could have used a light rain jacket, but was fine without it, too. Of course, it will get COLD again this weekend. Harriet
, I'm glad your study went well this morning. Always good when others are chatty and take part in things like that!
I forgot, I have two other ta-das --
I emailed church secretary (to keep dmom on prayer list; secretary always starts fresh for the new year because our prayer list gets kinda bloated and you just about have to die to be taken off it) AND
I emailed teacher group reminder and minutes from last meeting. I need to make a few hard copies for those who don't get email. We meet next week.
I have absolutely NO motivation at all today.
I will push myself to do 15 minutes whether I want to or not. We'll see where that takes me. Maybe I will be in a better frame of mind when I return!
Hope things ARE terrific for all of you!!!
