Default Saturday - The Weekend is Here!

Morning mates, another hot sunny day in these parts. Loving it, but would love it more if I had a pool....

No plans for the day, just taking it easy. James is doing ok too so that is good.

What's everyone up to this weekend?

Our family holiday continues. We have done our 4 days at Disney and will soon be heading to Port Canaveral to board the Carnival Magic.

Good morning Mates

Donna, I used to say that's it's always the weekend for those of us who are retired but know I appreciate the weekend because we don't have any medical appointments.

We are getting a new recliner delivered today and going out to dinner this evening.

Have a nice weekend, folks.

Hi all,

Donna, sorry about the flu you had, but glad James' treatment went well. Just wish you did not have hours upon hours to kill while he is doing his treatment with the driving on top of it! Take care of yourself, too!

Hoping your visit to the retina specialist went well, Manuel. No fun having to see the eye doctor so much!! I don't like the yearly visits, let alone the five visits I had this year plus the hospital trip for cataract surgery!

Happy Belated Birthday, Robin. Hope it was a good one!

Len, sorry you are in so much pain! Take care.

I got my stitches (all three!!) out on Tuesday and released to start increasing my lifting weight and to start PT. I had two rather rare bacteria in the incision when he did the second surgery and cultures. Probably came from our cistern or from the flooding we had. Just glad neither of the infections got any worse!

Wednesday, I had dental cleaning appointment. I sat in the dental chair from H#LL! When I was done, I was not sure I could stand. It felt like my back was not going to support me standing upright! I had trouble moving, sitting, leaning, doing much of anything for the rest of the day. But it was better the next day.

Thursday late afternoon/evening, we went to DD#2's cottage on the river. Got to see DGD tubing with her mom (DGD is 2 1/2) and we went to the sandbar. It was fun to see DGD experience fairly new things!! We got drenched returning to the cottage by a pop up rain storm! I wore a beach towel around my waist the rest of the night!! We had a cookout and played with the kids for the rest of the evening. It was very nice (except for the rain, that is)!

Started PT yesterday. Did just a few stretching exercises and, boy, I could tell I have done very little over the past month. I came home, did a few cleaning chores and DH had to do the rest of the house cleaning. He then finished the cistern cleaning by mopping up a small spot, closing the window to the outside (inside the cistern area) and brought out the ladder (signifying he is DONE with the cistern)!! I am happy! We went to town for returns and errands and had a very nice supper at Ruby Tuesday's!

Now, trying to catch up from the week in my office. DH not doing much today. I have supper in the crock pot already and also trying to do some laundry. DH is not doing much today. I hope I can accomplish something today. DH is not doing much of anything today. Can you see the problem!!! !

Well, sending those who need them healthy wishes, sending the rest of CM's good day wishes and to all, Have A Great Weekend!

A late good morning. Have been to Publix for a few things. Once I got home I had to try on a pair of pants that came yesterday and they fit fine so I have pulled a bunch of things out of the closet and put the new pants in matched up with tops. Still have some more things to pull out then will make a trip to Salvation Army with the items. It is another hot day here so am glad we got the new ac.

All have a great day.

Default The Weekend is Here!

Good morning. Wow! It looks like everybody is up and bustling around. Keith and I read the L.A. Times and I fell asleep on the sofa. And I had just gotten up!

Donna, I am glad to hear that James is doing ok.

It's going to be hot here, too. I still would like to have lunch in Pasadena. We'll see . . .

Tonight we are going to dinner with friends who just returned from a long cruise.

Earlier today I was completing an alumni questionaire for the HS I graduated from .
