EVEN MORE GOOD NEWS ON THE DIL FRONT

My son informs me that his wife will be moving into a private room some time this evening.  Yay!  He says she looks better, but isn't getting enough sleep because of all the interruptions.  For instance, she has a CT scan every morning at 4:30 to...

ANOTHER DIL UPDATE!

My daughter-in-law called me again this afternoon.  She said she had both speech and occupational therapy today.  She had a little trouble saying "occupational", but otherwise she sounded almost like her old self.  She also sat up in a chair most of...

UPDATE ON MY DAUGHTER-IN-LAW

Hi, all, and thanks for all your good wishes.   My dear one is still in intensive care and will probably be there for a little while yet, but she has been up and walking (with assistance, of course) around the unit twice so far.  She has been...

A SURPRISE, AND NOT THE GOOD KIND, UPDATED!!!

Since I can't get Thoughts to let me post, I'm trying this - hope it works!   My daughter-in-law is doing much, much better already.  She was moved to a regular room last evening and is already using the phone (of course).  My son took her an...

GUILTY UNTIL ... JUST GUILTY, A STORY

Bob was a regular guy, a nice guy if you asked anyone who knew him.  But his friends were few and far between since he had moved to the small town of Breedlove, Texas.   Bob had made the move because of the job offer, a local management position...

IT'S UP! IT'S UP!

We now have an address plaque on our house, and I must say it's very attractive!  I'm not sure what he did about the problem with the holes in the siding, but there it is, looking very professional, and probably not noticed by anyone around.  Oh well,...

CORRECTION TO OUR ULTIMATE FUTURE ...

I mixed up my cemeteries.  There is a Sweet Church Cemetery, but we won't be in it!  We' re going to Mount Pleasant, a Lutheran cemetery.  Quite a large number of hubby's relatives, going back a ways, plus some close neighbors will all be in a clump...

UPDATE ON THE (UN)ADDRESS!

There has been progress!  The numbers are cut - beautifully with a skill saw - the board has been built and painted, as have the numbers.  The numbers are attached to the board.  A chain is attached to the board.  All that remains is to attach the...

OUR ULTIMATE FUTURE

We finally made an appointment with the local undertaker's sales person.  We've been putting it off for years, but after all, we're in our early seventies.  I can expect to go another ten or twelve years.  Hubby, of course, will still be chugging into...

AND A GOOD DAY WAS HAD BY ME ...

There's blueberry buckle and a huge bowl of pasta salad in the fridge.  I got everything finished before Hubby returned from his trip to the doctor with his dad.  By the time I got up from my well-deserved nap this afternoon, I could hardly move.  I...

PLANS FOR TOMORROW

I hope I feel good tomorrow.  I have big plans if I do!  Hubby bought some blueberries at the store earlier this week.  They're nice-looking berries, but kind of sour.  I want to bake something with them.  If I put enough sugar on them, they'll taste...

?????

I don't really have anything to say, but I can't resist anyway, since this is the first time in a few days that I've been able to post!   I got a box full of "junk" from my sister.  She told me she was sending a box of junk to go with the rest...

NO MORE VICIOUS DEBATES FOR ME!

Many of you have probably been following the "debate" between willsblog and me.  Well, just so you know, I'm done debating.  I'm tired of being called names and disrespected by someone who doesn't even know me.  I'm simply going to stop responding to...

WHAT THE HELL???

Who is this willsblog?  Is he as rude to everyone else as he is to me?  I don't get irritated very often, but he really irritates the hell out of me.  Doesn't he know I'm just a sweet little old lady in poor health?   Bring it on, will old...

THIS IS ME, GETTING BETTER ...

Woke up at around 3:00am, as usual.  Hubby came in at about 5:00am and we went through the last two chapters of the next book on the second reading.  We'll go through it at least twice more and look for punctuation errors, bad spacing, etc.  We also...

GAVE UP AND WENT TO THE DR.

I'm now the proud owner of cough medicine with codeine, a week's supply of antibiotics and a new bottle of pain pills!  Now I can weather anything.   Got a nice message from my sister-in-law saying she liked my latest book.  She mentioned that...

DOES THIS MEAN WE'RE UN(AD)DRESSED?

When Hubby had the front of the house painted a couple of weeks ago, he took our address numbers off the porch post.  He didn't put them back on.  Instead, he came up with a cool idea to make a sign that he can hang from the porch with the numbers...

LOOKING FOR A LITTLE SYMPATHY

This is a bare-faced bid for sympathy.  I have a cold - the one I talked about last week that got me out of going to Hubby's family reunion.  But now I'm really sick!!  The damn thing has sunk into my chest and taken up permanent residence.  I'm...

COULD IT BE I HAVE A REPRIEVE???

Hubby has had a cold all week.  He has gallantly refrained from kissing me so I wouldn't catch it from him.  Now he is feeling pretty good, just a little drainage left, no fever anymore, so he will be fine to go to his family reunion on Sunday.  ...

SHOULDN'T LET ME NEAR A CATALOG ...

We got a Lands' End catalog a couple of days ago - a SALE catalog!  I like their stuff and Hubby just loves it.  The silly man told me he needed T-shirts and asked me to get him four or five.  I found a nice plain T-shirt and showed it to him, and he...

THE DAMN EYEDROPS FINALLY WORE OFF!!

Don't you just hate having your pupils dilated?  I sure do.  I also hate the Field of Vision test and those bright lights you have to stare into without blinking.  And as soon as anyone tells me not to blink, I have to blink!!   My eyesight is a...

HAPPY 4TH!

Hubby outdid himself today and is out in the living room sleeping in his chair.   Yesterday, he made a huge bowl of potato salad.  This morning, he put a gigantic pork roast in the oven and later he roasted corn on the cob in the oven.  We had...
