Jenn if the leak gets worse, it will affect your apartment. Threatening to hold back rent might get your landlord to get on the upstairs landlord before you suffer damages.

I got my report done and emailed at last. Now hopefully I never have to hear from her again. But I doubt I'll be that lucky LOL.

I did get to Ikea and got the bookcase I wanted. It was super crazy busy there, I had forgotten about colleges starting up and new students needing furnishings.

As for the apartment situation, I can't exactly threaten to withhold rent because the leak is upstairs, not in my unit. So it's not my landlord's responsibility to fix it. If I was in a regular apartment and not individually owned condos, this all would have been easy. Or easier, at least.

Tomorrow, church, a cross stitch get-together, and building furniture.

Jan Diane, Martin and the boys will be here tomorrow. I'm not sure if Maria is coming too. They're taking me to brunch so I'm thinking they won't be staying too late. :-)

Jenn maybe you should tell your landlord you're going to keep some of the rent and use it to hire someone reliable to fix the leak. Once his pocket is threatened, he may be more helpful.
If the church wants people to clean, they should have someone open the doors on time. The folks cleaning also have their own chores to do without waiting around to get started. I hope the next time your scheduled to clean, they open the doors on time.

Susi I'm glad you were able to go for a bit of a drive. I'm sure you needed a change of scenery after being in for a few days.

I got my cleaning done and spent the rest of the day doing little odds and ends and reading. I had a very peaceful and restful day.

Peggy, did you get all your apps put on the ipad today? That was nice of his friend to give that to you. :) Sounds like a busy day. I hope the part comes in soon so you don't have to take your laundry out.

Blondie, I hope you didn't have a bunch more you had to do today other than the bit of cleaning. I know we all worry about each other. That's what sisters do. :) Well, some of them anyway. LOL! I napped so much today on top of a good nights sleep last night. Greg just woke me at 4 to get up. Hopefully I can sleep tonight. I guess I needed that extra again. I don't think I'll ever get caught up. This morning Greg went and got the paper before I woke back up. I did go out though.

Jan, I do hope this was a stay at home, relax and create day for you for a change. Since Greg went to get the paper this morning and my need to get out was driving because I haven't for a while, I took the car and went for a drive myself. Just around the neighborhood to drive. I did good. I have to when I haven't for a while, then I'm satisfied. :) So I'm good to go. :) It's a shame that Heather never learned to help. One of my cousins is just like that. She and her sister have lived together since forever and Jean does pretty much all of everything. Cobby (nickname) barely knows how to heat up soup. It's sad. :(

Jenn, I thought a very long time ago that I would rather make a house payment for myself to own something than pay someone else to own it. Being responsible for your own upkeep is hard but much better then fighting with someone else about it in the long run. I hope you can figure something out. Yikes on the big mess up with going to clean the church! You can only do so much but for no more than you had there to help it sounds like you got a good bit done. :) I would make sure someone knew what happened. I hope you were able to get your report finished so you could get that client quieted down. Did you enjoy the Ikea run today?

HUGS!

God Bless and Hugs!

I won't call my landlord a slumlord just yet. He's not responsible for the upstairs leak. But yeah, he should be talking with the other landlord to get a professional in here, not making the tenants deal with it. I guess the upstairs landlord figures that since his tenant does do this sort of work for a living, he'll take advantage of it? THAT guy I'm definitely willing to call a slumlord for his lack of response.

And I'm definitely WAY done with living in rented out condos after this unit. If I can't figure out a way to save up enough money for a down payment on something, I'm going back to apartment complexes with corporate management.

I spent a few hours at church this morning helping to clean the building. 7 or 8 families are scheduled each Saturday, with one member of an auxiliary presidency that has building keys in each week's team. We're supposed to be there at 9:00 am. The work generally takes about an hour and a half. One family allegedly showed at 8:30, found the building locked (well, duh), and left after "about a half hour". I arrived at 8:55, no sign of that family, so I guess either I just barely missed them or "about" is significantly less than actual. I called the bishopric member in charge of the cleaning schedule at 9:30, got his voicemail. At 9:45, the family of my autistic Cub Scout arrived, they had swapped with another family. I finally got a hold of a leader a little bit after 10, got and someone showed up to let us into the building at 10:30. That person then vanished. So we had three adults and one bored troublesome child to clean everything? Hah. We got the trash out, the floors vacuumed, and the bathrooms cleaned before I announced that we were done. Oh, and there was a baptism yesterday, and they left the wet clothes and towels in a bag in the room where I attend Sunday school. Took those home with me to wash because what else was I going to do? Leave them to mildew in MY classroom to create breathing issues for me in the morning since mold and mildew are among my triggers?

Now I'm at the office and I really do need to get focused and wrap up this report for this annoying client. Then I'm gonna borrow the company van and make an Ikea run.

Morning all. I am listening and watching it rain. I am a happy a happy camper with the Windows open. I am hoping this is a stay at home do laundry and create day but things could change lol.

Susi that stuff you were talking about sounds very good. Did you ride to get the paper? Heather does not help and that is Amanda's fault. Josh has always done his own laundry, dishes and cleaned. They never made Heather and that is on Amanda and and they are paying for it now. Erin and I both have gotten on her about that for years. Josh is self sufficient, Larry had him cooking when he was 8. He tried with Heather and Adrian too, Adrian learned and can cook and grill. Unless it can be popped in the microwave Heather can't do it lol.

Blondie, glad it was nice and you got to relax and visit. I am sure you were plied with questions about your trip. Are the kids coming in it so you get to rest finally. I do understand that plans can change quickly.

Peggy I am so glad you got a new IPad to play with. I can't wait to see the pictures.

Jenn you do have a slumlord for sure. It shouldn't be your responsibility to chase someone to make the repair. It is costing you time at work and mental anguish for dealing with it. I hope you found something fun to do toy.

Jan I'm glad you got your tags and inspection. It was nice of you to, not only wait for the phones, but to do some laundry and cleaning for Amanda.

Susi I'm glad you're starting to feel better. Maybe a little ride with Greg would make you feel better still. I'd rather you do that than go for the paper on your own. Guess who else worries. LOL

Peggy I just read that the hurricane may either hit the Carolina's or just go out to sea. Hopefully that's what will happen so you don't have to worry about your place in Florida.

I have some cleaning to do and that's pretty much all I've got planned for the day. We'll see what actually happens. :-)

Good morning we're back from our walk and now it's time for breakfast.

I have to work on getting the pictures from my phone onto here

plus I got a new (used) iPad from Jared's friend and I have to put all of my apps on it and connect it to the network.

We took our laundry to Jodi's with us yesterday because Dave is going to fix ours but we are waiting for a part.

Have a great day

Jenn, your mental vacation sounds good to me. :) I would like to take one myself. Your old bosses mancave sounds pretty good. Most don't have that in their office buildings and it was sure nice of him to give you permission to use it. :) I'm sure it was nice doing laundry at work and getting that out of the way while you were there. Kelly use to go to work on July 4th to watch the fireworks from her building. They doing bother going there now, they just stay local. They couldn't see the parades though. I would be at the point with that neighbor right now, I would have to tell him if he didn't take care of the problem I would be calling a lawyer about it. And yes, it shouldn't be you who has to keep getting on him, it should be the landlord. I just don't know what gets into people. :( You could call the landlord the slumlord I believe.

Peggy, I'm glad you're not there just in case, that would be worse if you and Jerry were in any danger. You know me, I just worry to be worrying. LOL! They did say it was going to hit hard so I'm still praying. I'm glad you have someone who can check on things for you while you're gone. :) Bummer on losing the scrimmage, but I'm sure they did the best they could for the first time of the season. I know they will get better now. :) I'm glad the party was nice and fun. : ) I can't wait to see pictures. :)

Blondie, I'm glad the party went great. :) Even nicer you could relax and chat afterwards. You need that! I always think of something I would like to make us after we've gotten a lot of groceries. LOL! We use to order in this meal, and I can't think of what they called it. It's the twisted noodles, meatball chunks, pepperoni, red and green pepper, onion, and marinara sauce covered in mozzarella. I think that will for sure be for next week though. :)

Jan, I'm glad you got the car taken care of, now I can relax and stop worrying about that. Hehe! It was nice of you to go wait on the phones and do some laundry and cleaning while you were there. :) Does Heather ever do any of the laundry to help out? I would think she and Josh were old enough to do that now and then. You're kids and grands must wear a lot of clothes,seems like you do that a lot for them. I know it's your choice though that's because you are such a sweet mama! :) I saw Erin's posts about the game and MV won. Woohoo! I'm not into football but it's nice I can root for the ones I know are. Hehe! I'm starting to go stir crazy now, so I must be feeling better. I'm thinking a small trip this morning to get the paper is in order. :)

HUGS!

I did get my car inspected and my tags. I picked up a few things and was at home thinks a nap would be nice when oldest grandson, Josh texted and asked if I could go to Mt Vernon to their house and wait as the phones had to be signed for. I went and while waiting I did some of Amanda laundry and cleaned a bit as everyone has been working overtime. It arrived a little before 2 and came home and got my nap.

Jan did you get your inspection and tags done? I would try to repeat after you, but I've already forgotten what you want me to say. LOL

Susi I put some celery in too. Now, I'm hungry for ham salad but won't be making it any time soon. I bought some groceries yesterday and will need to use them up first. :-)

Jenn it shouldn't be your job to hound the tenant upstairs. You should hound your landlord into getting the problem resolved. He's getting paid for you to live with the mess.

Peggy I'm praying the hurricane peters out. :-)

The farewell party went great. Afterwards, a group of us stayed downstairs and chatted. It was nice to relax with everyone.

Susi our house is as safe as it could be with us there. If we were there our second car would be in the driveway.

Nisha will let us know if anything happens and our friends Jim and Roseanne will go over if they are needed.

They lost the scrimmage but the lunch was delicious and the party was great I'll post a picture later.

I'm having a mental vacation today. Only pretending to work, not actually getting anything accomplished. Of course, I will end up paying for it. LOL. But I figure that since kiddo is having an extended sleepover with her grandparents, I can easily come in to the office tomorrow when really nobody is here or calling me and get my stuff done.

It's a tiny shame that I don't still work at the last law firm I was with. My main boss there, who owned the entire building, had a "mancave" in the back of the building. Full mechanic's garage, small washer and dryer, and a well stocked refrigerator. And gave me absolute permission to use the facilities if he wasn't around and I was in need. I used to bring in all my laundry on court days :D and we'd use the office (and it's air conditioning, natch) to watch the parades that were routed right past us every time.

I absolutely do NOT believe the neighbor about his phone screen, and I'm highly suspicious of the rest. He didn't know on Tuesday when he was working that he would need tools for Wednesday? He didn't know that he needed keys to get tools? I think he decided to not bother and came up with a bunch of excuses. But I will be hounding him on Sunday for a time, and keeping the landlords informed.

Blondie, I use the food processor when I do my ham salad too. I will put pickles and sometimes celery in with it, then just blob in the miracle whip as needed, oh maybe some pepper too. Now I'm hungry for it again. LOL! So far no delivery, oh well. I hope the chiropractor still had enough gorilla glue and rubber bands to fix you again. Yes, you do need to slow down too. You tell us that all the time, uh..do as I say not as I do? Hmmm?? LOL! Repeat after Jan! :)

Jan, I do hope you got your inspection and tags today. You may go for years without getting pulled over but about the time you don't have them legal, that would be the one time they would stop you for some silly little thing. I don't want that to happen. Dad's retirement check came. :( Kelly had called them to stop it but it was already in the mail. I told her she needed to take custody of it. :) My job is over so it's her baby to deal with now. She'll have to send it back to them. Ar least she did notify JFS that he passed so I don't have to think about that anymore either. I'm so glad my job is done with all that stuff. It's been terrible. :( Sorry, just needed to throw that out there. :)

Peggy, I'm worried about your place in Fla. They say that storm will hit as a cat 4, and could cause trouble in the entire state. I do hope your home will be safe and I will be praying on that and for everyone there, ahead of time. How was the scrimmage today? Mary? The party?

Jenn, was today any better at work for you? I really don't know how you put up with all that stuff plus do the things you do at home and around with the kids and such. You are quite the wonder woman! :) I admire that, but I do wish you would take some more time for yourself than you do. I don't want you getting sick either. How is the breathing coming?

HUGS!

Susi that must have been some dream. I believe you are right about the chains for Greg lol. Today is the last day to drive legal lol nothing like procrastinating.

Susi I hope you'll be surprised and Amazon will make the delivery today. When I first moved here, I sometimes got Amazon deliveries the same day I ordered!
When I make the ham salad, I put the ham and pickles in the blender or food processor so they both mince real fine. The sour garlic pickles I would only be able to get in the fall. For some reason, they're not sold year round.

I guess it's time for me to slow down a bit. Last night my back started to hurt so I texted the chiropractor. He's going to see me this morning and glue me back together. LOL Other than setting up for the farewell party tonight, I don't plan on doing much. :-)

Jenn, I think once again you"re upstairs neighbor is fibbing to you. I could only take it so much then I would be getting aggressive with him about it. I just don't get people now days. The client, must think they own the company you work for or something. Special privileges don't come any other way, and certainly not before the job is finished. Duh! I'm sure Mini will love her long visit, and maybe you can get a little rest too. :)

Peggy, the ham spread sounds good, 'cept for the eggs, since I can't eat them. :) I'll take ham any way I can get it anyhow. Hehe! Have fun today at the game and the party. Tell Jennifer happy birthday from me. :) It's a shame Jared can't be there but it sure is for a good reason. :)

Jan, you're right about it teaching Greg a lesson. Hehe! He did promise he would ask from now on if I need something he's going to use or not. :) He said he just figured I wouldn't need it anymore. Wrong. :) I told him so too! I was up in the night for an hour or so. My nose was all stopped up. :( He woke up, he had gone in the other room to sleep, said I was making all kinds of noises and he couldn't get to sleep. I must have been dreaming cause he said I mentioned about getting a chain to chain someone down. LOL! Probably him for using "MY" salt. LOL! I hope you can get your car inspected and the tags today. Do you have a certain date you have to have it done by? I'm glad you found some good buys. Walmart is getting kind of expensive on a lot of things anymore so I'm really surprised they have things cheaper than Aldi's.

Blondie, you get yourself into those messes because you're too nice sometimes. :) That's a good and bad thing all rolled into one. :) Amazon said over night delivery but I still don't think it will be here today. I will be very shocked if it is. Since it's Prime, who knows. I think they have warehouses all over the place now they ship from if it's closer. The hula thing sounds like it was a lot of fun. I love how they flow so easily. I could never do something like that, it would look like someone had hold of me shaking me or something. LOL! The sour garlic pickles sound like a good change from the ones I use, I may have to try that sometime. :)

Jan although you didn't get the tags and inspection, you got much needed sleep and some fun with the kitties. :-)

Susi not only did I help set up the hula event, but now I'm helping to set up a farewell party tomorrow night. I don't know how I get myself into these messes. LOL
I'm glad you were able to find the right salt on Amazon and hope they deliver it quicker than promised.

Jenn I hope the leak gets repaired before it becomes a bigger issue. Some people, not only customers, feel they're entitled to special treatment whether it's possible or not.

Peggy when I make my ham salad I don't add eggs and I use sour garlic pickles instead of
sweet pickles.

The event tonight went really well. We had 4 ladies doing different hula dances and explaining the moves. We also had a sing along with them. Everyone had a good time.

Peggy I think I would add onion too. I am so happy Jared is teaching art, as good as he is he should teach.

Blondie how did the hula party go?

Susi, glad you the correct salt. Serves Greg right having to trek to all the stores as penance for not using the right salt on the sidewalk. I think it will be lesson learned.

Jenn that one customer is a pain and does not listen. Of course folks will only hear what they want to hear anyway.

I did not have the time to get my car inspected or the tags and will have to be done tomorrow. I did find some good buys at Aldi but also noticed that some things are cheaper at Walmart.

The ham salad was great! She makes it with whatever ham is the cheapest, hard boiled eggs, sweet pickles and mayo. I think I would add onions.

Then Jennifer and I went over to Mary's, well she was there ahead of me because I had to go home and get the chicken ready.

Tomorrow at 8:30 we are going up to Jodi's and over to see Adin's scrimmage (soccer)

Jodi is having a birthday party for Jennifer. Jared can't make it because he starts teaching a college art class tomorrow.

It should be a fun day

Upstairs tenant texted me as I was leaving work last night, claimed he'd cracked his phone screen and was just getting it back. Claims he "should" be able to come down Monday. We shall see.

That client that was calling yesterday and annoying my tech is getting twitchy again. Or still. I very clearly told her yesterday that the test was completing late yesterday and she'd have reports tomorrow. Today was "I still haven't seen those results..." Ya think?. I told you tomorrow. I definitely would not be upset if we really have lost this client. Yeah, it's the same one.

Taking kiddo to Grandma's house for another extended sleepover tonight. My dad wants to go fishing tomorrow morning. So clearly I'm not getting anything accomplished tonight.

Peggy, is the ham spread something like I would call ham salad? It can be made with minced ham or bologna chunks, sweet gerkins, mayo and some finely shredded cheddar. I'm sure you had fun at the archives. :)

Blondie, I'm not up to the 50% yet, but still doing better. I am still taking it easy, but doing just a tiny bit in between, not much at all. The hula thing sounds like fun, but sorry you agreed to help out. You need a rest break too! You saw so many gorgeous things, sights and colors! When I was in high school I did an in depth report on Bryce canyon and I've never forgotten it. I would love to go there. You are so lucky! :)

Jan, you certainly needed that sleep! :) I'm sure the kitties understood you needed to go. Hehe! Or not. LOL! I'm sure you had a wonderful lunch with Amanda today. Did you get some good deals at Aldi's? Greg went all over the place trying to find me some NON-iodized salt for my saline in the nebulizer. Silly guy used what I had here from before to kill some grass in the sidewalk. :( He came home with non-IodiDe salt, wrong stuff. He can't find the other anywhere, went to 5 stores. I checked out Amazon and they had it already premeasured and filled for it, so I could get 100 of them for 15 something. Hopefully they won't be long. Said tomorrow, but I sure doubt that. At least I will be getting what I need.

Hi Jenn, I hope things at work are going much better than the other day.

HUGS!

Morning all! I slept for almost 12 hours. I am having quite time with the kitties but need to throw them off my lap as I need to get my car inspected and tags. I'm going over to have lunch with Amanda and go to Aldi.

Susi glad you are feeling better but you are right to continue to rest.

Blondie, wow that was a lot to do and see but I can only imagine the beauty. So hate you have to help with the event bless your heart.

Peggy the ham spread sounds yummy.

Jenn only one more day.

Susi I think you're right about us all worrying about each other. :-) I'm glad you're doing better so far this morning and hope the prednisone helped kick-start your other meds.

Peggy how does Beverly make the ham spread. Honey Baked Ham stores have a ham spread that I've been able to make a few times. If it's easy enough, I like to try new recipes now and then. I don't really like cooking for one. :-)

I have some grocery shopping to do this morning and this evening we're having a hula dance group come to entertain. Before I went on my trip, I said I'd help. Stupid me. :-)
I still haven't recuperated from my trip. It was a busy one. We went to so many places and did so many things. When we got to Denver, we toured the city, went to Dinosaur Ridge and to Buffalo Bill's museum. After taking the California Zephr to Utah, we stayed at the Red Cliffs lodge in a really pretty valley. We went on a float trip to Fisher Towers which was beautiful. We went to Dead Horse state park, Arches National Park, a jet boat tour on the Colorado River, Capitol Reef National Park, Boulder Mountains, Escalante National Monument, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park and many other places. As I said, it was busy, but really awesome. The landscape at the parks really makes you feel insignificant. :-)

Good morning all!! I'm going for my first time to the Archives and then I'm stopping at my friend Beverly's. She is making her mother's ham spread which we had at her house. I always loved ham spread because it was something different.

have a great day

Peggy, you'll get the weight back off. Of course we'll still be praying for the entire family.

Jenn, maybe your tech was just getting frustrated or flustered at work doing that job. I'm thinking now I would start threatening to sue one of them if it falls in and ruins something. It's unbelievable they are letting that go for so long playing pass the buck. :(

Blondie, I think we've all reached the point we worry about each other all the time now. :) I'm doing better this morning so far, but I'm not letting my guard down. :) I'll probably be laying back down in a bit.

Jan, it sounds like a very busy day yesterday for the entire family and the church. Will you be able to get some rest today finally?

HUGS!

It was a very nice service but long as several family shared their memories. Some of the family members arrived early as I was getting some things done in the kitchen. One of her SIL is a pastor and the family asked him to do the service. When he arrived he asked who was going to run the sound booth so I told him guess that would be me. I really had to scramble to get things done as they did not ask for a sound person ahead of time. There was plenty of food and luckily some other of our church family showed up and ran the luncheon. I stayed in the booth as the funeral folks arrived with her body and the flowers. I wanted to free the family to eat and visit. After the service and by the time everything was cleaned and turned off it was almost 5. I met Pam and David for dinner then went to Walmart to get some groceries and fill up. I am rather tired. I truly believe that everyone appreciated everything.

Susi when I'm away, I worry about all of you too. With your breathing problems, Greg's heart and your dad passing, I was worrying about you even more. :-) Please take care.

Peggy not only is Mary in my prayers, but the rest of your family as well.

Jenn I hope the leak gets resolved soon. You have enough to worry about with unpacking, your job and your everyday life. You don't need to deal with someone else's tenant. I hope your landlord gets the other landlord to act on this.

I wound up doing other odds and ends this afternoon. I had to water plants, reply to some emails and make some calls. Now I'm getting ready to read for a while.

I ended up going in to the office. One of my techs sent me a text message that a client was calling with questions she couldn't answer, and was getting rather pushy about it. And it wasn't something I could handle from home easily. So I came in, called the client, and it was a very pleasant call, so I don't know what the tech was hearing that I didn't get.

I've spent the rest of the afternoon taking pictures for a couple reports that I'll take home with me tonight. I'm waiting for a test to come out of a heated chamber so I can pull the temperature data off the sensors, and that will come home with me tonight as well. That way I can make up some of the hours I missed this morning.

As for the neighbor, I sent screen shots of all of the text messages between us this week, starting with my trying to set a schedule back on Sunday night, to both our landlords via group text. My landlord is now pushing to get his landlord more directly involved, because his landlord's reply was just "I'll contact my tenant". I'll be honest, I half expect to come home to a note on my door claiming he tried to come but I wasn't there.

Hi I gained at WW .8 but I had on my long pants and heavier shirt so at least from now on I will have a truer weight. It was a nice group.

Jennifer and I went over to Mary's at about 2. She was sitting up and chatting with us and then she got a shower. She didn't want one in the morning.

After another half hour she went into her room to get some sleep.

Jennifer said that she was very tired herself. Please keep her in your prayers.

She has been really close to Mary in the last couple of years

Jan, I'm going to thank you for doing the funeral luncheon. :) It is very valuable to those who are attending. I know I didn't eat before ours and yes, I was hungry, needed to be around others and share stories and I sure didn't feel like going out to eat or cooking. I had a very nice nap this afternoon. :) I slept well. One of the reps from Hospice called to see how I was doing. :) I did ask him about something being wrong that I haven't cried yet. He explained it. I was taking care of dad for so long that when I was seeing the changes in him a bit at a time, my grieving for his losses happened at stages. I did cry a few times along those losses and that would be my grieving process, just earlier than most did. It makes sense to me. :)

Jenn, I think I would end up threatening that clown with a lawyer or something. It's sure getting out of hand. He just is making one excuse right after another to not get the job done. :) I feel bad for you. One day that is just going to fall in. :( I do hope all that isn't jeopardizing your job.

Blondie, maybe since you got so much done already you can get some rest. :) I'm so glad you checked in while you were gone, you know I worry when any of your are away. I do feel a tiny bit better already. I will be taking it easy though. I know I need to get back to my workouts to build back up, but she said to take it easy for a bit longer and she knew I would get back to it. That's the good thing about Greg going with me he can and will be honest when I ask him to, so he could say that I was keeping up on my exercises after rehab till dad got sick. :) Thank you for the prayers. :)

Peggy, I hope Mary is still having a good day. Those are very special right now.

HUGS!

I got up at about 7:30 and hit the ground running. I've unpacked, sorted through the stuff I brought and bought, went through the mail (mostly junk :-), did laundry, got out the sign up sheet for the Italian dinner and went through emails. I'm tired but happy I got a lot accomplished.

Susi I'm glad you didn't wind up in the hospital again. I'm still sending up prayers for you and Greg. I know you both can use the prayers. :-)

Jenn I hope your day wasn't completely wasted and hope the leak will get fixed before it becomes more of a problem.

Jan I hope you don't wear yourself out with all you're doing for the funeral.

Peggy I'm still sending up prayers for Mary. How is she doing today?

We're trying again on the bathroom repairs. He told me Monday evening that he'd be down here today at 10 am, so I told work I'd be in late. Well, I woke up this morning to a text message that he'd gone in to work to get tools but his partner forgot to give him a key, and he was working on getting in so he'd be with me later in the day. And hasn't responded to any messages since.

I'm torn. I have things at work that I need to be doing. But I'm also getting more stuff unpacked being here at home, plus I'm catching up on a show while i do it.

Morning all I’m about to get in the shower as I have a full day ahead. Today is a funeral at the church for a lady that has been in the nursing home. Her whole family 3 generations attend church. There will be a luncheon at 1 and the funeral at 3. I will be setting up and serving and cleaning up. I need to get my car inspected but don’t think I can get it done today so that can go on tomorrow list.

Susi so glad she did not put you in the hospital. Now REST

Peggy how was WW? I am glad you are getting to spend time with Mary.

Blondie goodness 2am bless your heart. I hope you got some good rest.

Jenn prayers for health, favor and peace.

The PA visit went well and I am HOME! She gave me a prednisone shot, said that what I was taking should have started working by now. More antibiotics too. I have to take Mucinex and it just about chokes me when it starts working. :( She could hear the air going into my lungs but not coming back out. If I'm not at least 50% better by Tuesday I have to call them.

Peggy, thank you so much for the prayers. I'm sure it will seem strange going to WW by yourself when you're use to Patty going with you. I can understand you not disrupting the lady's routine with Mary. They really need to be consistent with her right now. She knows you're there and that's the important thing. :)

Welcome home Blondie! I missed you! I can imagine you are really worn out. I hope you can get some good rest for a while now.

HUGS!

Susi good luck at the Drs. I have you in my prayer jar.

Today I will go to a WW meeting in the county, by myself. In June I didn't go if my sister Patty wasn't going.

Patty is in Rhode Island this week visiting a friend.

I'll go over to Mary's this afternoon. They have a lady coming to take care of her from 9-4, I don't like to go too early because we'll stop her from doing her thing.

Jennifer and I get there and wait until Lee Ann gets home at 3:30ish and then we visit with her.

Good luck to you too Jenn with the Drs. and work. I guess I'll put everyone in the prayer jar.

What are you doing today Jan

Safe travels Blondie. I hope you're taking pictures

Jenn, I'm so sorry things were hard for you yesterday and I sure hope it gets straightened out. I hope things get stabilized for your health too. I do remember going through all that back when. :( It's not easy. I'm glad you will be seeing an obgyn. :) I hope the scouts went well last night

Jan, I hope you have a good day today. Wish me luck at the doc's.

This is my first full day in NY and the weather is beautiful.
This morning Jennifer and I went to visit my friend Beverly and she had her two great nephews there.

What a fun time we had.

We went to visit Mary this afternoon and she was doing good again.

I'm happy I'm here to see her.

Today's been a mentally rough day. I may have potentially cost the company a client. Boss thinks we've done a lot more work with them over the years and that it's a larger loss than reality, but to try and enlighten him at this point would be futile at best.

In other news, I would really like my body to get itself in gear. I'm too darned old to be taking pregnancy tests month after month LOL. Yeah, I'm at that age, and yeah, I've been under a lot of stress which can contribute. But can things just stabilize one way or another already? And yes, I'm working on getting in to see a gyne for answers.

Scouts tonight. It's pack night, and we're holding a raingutter regatta. Basically boat racing, with the boats made from styfrofoam pool noodles. So I can mostly just sit in the back and veg out, I think. We'll be outside, so here's hoping the weather cooperates.

Jan, I'm a little worried my rest will be in the hospital though. :( I'm glad you are getting a cool down and some rain. I know it's been a good while since you've had it. Greg's been sleeping a lot today, he is so worn out too. :( I'm catching bills up just in case.

Peggy, how are you all doing?

Susi, I am so glad you rested better. I think the stress of the funeral was weighing heavy on your mind. I am super happy you have an early appointment. I am hoping for easy fix it and the major orders are rest. We got rain today and it is in the 70s and wonderful. It has been so long since we have had rain.

Peggy so glad Mary was having a good day when you got there. What are you doing today?

Blondie I am glad you girls are getting to roam today. I am glad you got to eat at the Roof. What did you girls choose to eat today?

Jenn how is the work week going? Is it scouts tonight?

Thank you all for putting up with my rantings and messed up life these past few weeks. I wouldn't have been able to get through them without being able to vent to all of you. You're love and support has been incredible and you are always there when I need you!. God bless you all!

Jan, I did get a little better and a little more sleep last night. I will be resting today. My appointment is at 8:20 in the morning so I have the 2nd one of the day. :)

Peggy, I'm glad you made it there safely! I'm still praying. Mary may go in and out of bad and good days. Give her a hug and kiss from me please?

Blondie, I hate when that happens with either bad internet or messed up posts. :( Have fun on your roaming around this morning and have a safe trip home!

This is the third time I am trying to post. We got to Salt Lake City after a few stops and tours. We had dinner at the roof, food was great and the views were fantastic. Tomorrow morning we get to roam around town on our own. In the afternoon we head to the airport for our flights home.

Really rough day today in more ways than one. :( I ended up calling Kelly this morning and borrowing her rollator. My breathing was getting bad enough that I needed him to push me around again. :(* It was really hard at the cemetery because I had to walk back to the grave. I have an appt. on Wed. morning early with my Pulmonary's PA.

Dad would have loved his service. :) The 3 of us were allowed to cover his coffin with the holy cloth. :) The mass was a nice one, too much incense though. Before they brought him out of the church they removed the holy cloth and put on the American flag. At the cemetery the American Legion did a very lovely talk sending their brother off and removed the flag and presented it to TJ. Then the 21 gun salute and taps. Then Father did his reading and we all headed back to the church for a nice luncheon. I'm glad it's over now and I feel he is truly resting in peace. :)

Blondie, I hope you enjoyed the restaurant this evening. Sad saying farewell to a wonderful trip when you were having so much fun. :)

Jan, when I told her on the phone all that was going on, it could be anything causing it from major stress to dehydration. :( Or should I say it could be everything between there. It's been a really rough couple weeks keeping my mouth shut to a couple of people and that was stress too. :(

Jenn, those rolls sound so yummy! :)

Peggy, did you make it there okay? I'm still praying for all of you and said extra ones at church this morning.

OOOOH Blondie. I've heard so many wonderful reports of The Roof but haven't gotten to go there myself.

If you can, stop in at the Lion House Pantry restaurant as well. Ground level, on South Temple just west of State Street. Their rolls are TO DIE FOR. I have the recipe but I haven't ever quite gotten them right yet.

On the way to Salt Lake City today, we will be stopping at Butch Cassidy's childhood home, go to City Creek Center and for a tour of Temple Square. Tonight we're having a farewell dinner at a restaurant called The Roof restaurant. It will be another long day.

Peggy, I'm glad you made it there safely. :) Praying for a good trip again today for you.

Jan, I understand smaller things like you made but the sign board was so big. I had a rough evening again, not so much about anyone else this time but about me. :( I just don't know how I'm going to make it through the service and internment today. My breathing is worse again and I'm struggling this morning already even with oxygen on. Greg thinks some of it could be psychosomatic or something,

Blondie, have fun again today.

Jenn, I hope that guy grows up and takes care of his responsibilities soon.

Blondie, I hope you'll have time to go to Temple Square while in SLC. Such a beautiful, peaceful place.

Still no word from upstairs. I shouldn't have to chase him down like this.... So today was church, a little bit of cleaning, and a report for work that Ive been wresting with for a month because people just won't leave me alone. And yes, I will get paid for the time.

For today you are to take 5 minutes and dust the decorative items in your living room. The picture frames, lamps and knick knacks, this is a detailed dusting. Turn on the music and move quickly, you will be amazed at how fast you can to this! Don't overthink the mission, just do the mission.

Zone 5 Mission #2 Tuesday

Let's have a Fire Drill! Go get the hotspots cleared off in your Living Room! You know the piles that I am talking about. The ones that just grow and grow!! Put that fire out!Take 10 minutes and put things away where they belong and toss the rest.

Zone 5 Mission #3 Wednesday

Today I want you to spend 15 minutes getting rid of anything that does not belong in your living room. Things that have gotten thrown in a corner, on a chair, or even the floor. The things that you almost don't even see because they have just become part of the room, get it out! If it does not belong there then out it goes!This does not mean that you have to spend three hours in your living room, do what you can do for 15 minutes.

Zone 5 Mission #4 Thursday

Let's have a detailed vacuuming session. This means to vaccuum the room, making sure to get up against the baseboards and to get under the furniture. Please be careful that you don't hurt yourself trying to move furniture. If it is too difficult to get under the couch or chairs, then just try to get as close to the base of the furniture as you can.

Zone 5 Mission #5 Friday

Another favorite mission of mine is to really take a look at the knick-knacks and decorative items that you have in the living room. Could you declutter any of these? Do you have too many cutesy things that are really just dust catchers? Things that don't really bring you joy but have been there for so long that you don't even realize that they are there? Your mission is to take 5 minutes to get rid of anything that you don't love or use in your living room/family room.

For those of you that might ask me about things that people have given you that you feel an obligation to display: my answer is simple, you are under no obligation to have anything in your home that you do not love or use. This is YOUR home!! Release yourself >from the guilt and obligation. Life is too short to live in guilt purgatory.You are FLYing!

Should we not dance just because THEY don't hear the music?

Susi I am glad that your dad was his handsome self again. I know I had made a revolving square photo cube that was open in the middle. The girls chose different photos when he was younger to put in the photos places. We then filled the middle with his favorite candy the soft peppermints. I made a sign that said please take one, they were Larry favorite. You will not have to deal with aunt and uncle or the witches much longer.

Peggy so glad it was another good driving day. Is this the motel that has the glass of wine for you. A glass of wine at the end of the day of driving would be so relaxing.

Blondie I hope they did not push you too hard today to enjoy yourself lol. I felt like that on the cruise with the girls as I was happy just sitting and looking at the water.

Jenn how did your day go. I sure wish you could get that place fixed. Tomorrow it is back to the grind again.

Today the lesson was about David and Jonathan being friends. I had things so they could make a friendship bracelet for their BFF and one for themselves. They enjoyed themselves today. I always dread my time to have the kids as I just do not like teaching kids anymore but I want them to learn something and have fun. Off to church for missions tonight. Have a good evening.

We made it to Staunton VA at 2 o'clock. We normally visit a friend I met on SP in Rock Hill but they are in Ohio for a vacation.

It was a good day driving. Lots of traffic but no accidents so that's what we like.

One more drive and we will be in NY. Jennifer and Jared are baby sitting for Jared's friend so they are not going to see Mary today. I guess it isn't baby sitting since Lily is 10.

Only one more time today and then tomorrow morning and being with your sisters will be over for a while

Home on a break. I think it's been awful so far. :( Kelly come in and had this big tripod board with pictures all over it, then a table full of his personal things and photo albums, and another table with a lot of military things, then she opened this large bag of Hershey miniatures and put them around on the different tables and end tables and one of each on dad's pillow. I was embarrassed. :(

I have to say though, they did make dad look wonderful! :) They gave him his favorite flat top and filled out his cheeks and bottom lip to make it appear he had his teeth. He was my handsome daddy again. :)

I got a slight cold shoulder from Uncle Tom, and Aunt Pauline. Oh well. I started getting it from TJ when the kids came in and came to me for hugs and kisses. I had to take the Inogen to use, and I must have had 20 questions about that. :(

A lot of people I didn't even know unless they were from mom's side of the family. Some I haven't seen for years and didn't recognize them. One of the nurses from MST came and she was just crying. :( They really liked him out there. :) We go back in an hour to do it all again.

HUGS!

God Bless and Hugs!

Hang in there!

Peggy, I'm glad you made it okay, and prayers for the trip today too. I'm still praying for the family. I hope Mary's transition is an easy one for her.

Jan, are you getting any rest? I'm hoping I can in the next few days, not sleeping much for a while. I am feeling some better so far this morning though.

Blondie, I'm so glad you are having such a wonderful time on your trip! :)

Jenn, sorry to hear the guy wasn't around today. I would be getting very annoyed with him for sure. Sounds like you are getting some rest though. :)

Today and tomorrow will be rough, but I will get through it.

Hugs!

No word from the guy :( Did some laundry, watched a bunch of TV, went in to my office for a bit to pick up tools. Generally quiet today.

We finally arrived at our hotel. We had a very day of sight-seeing. I just got my clothes ready for tomorrow and will be going to bed soon. We have to meet at 6:15 for breakfast. We leave at 7 to go to Zion Park. It's going to be another busy day tomorrow. The views I saw today were spectacular

We made it to Columbia SC. The drive was good. There was a lot of traffic but it just kept on passing us for the most part.

Jennifer and Jodi were tracking us on snap chat. I facetimed Jennifer when she and Jared were over at Mary's. My sister Patty was there and so were Lee Ann, her sister Mary Beth and Louis who is Mary Beth's husband.

Mary looked good but I don't know if she knew what was going on.

Thank you Jan. :) I keep dozing so much now, kind of like that narcalepsy. I'm sure it's the medicines working. It's crazy!

Blondie, I looked those up too and it was beautiful! :)

Peggy, I hope your drive went well today.

Jenn, how did your day go?

HUGS!

Susi, don't worry about not crying for your dad. We all grieve in our own way and nothing is wrong with that. You are tired and ill, your body is protecting you right now so you can heal. It is ok, right now just rest and heal. The grieving will come in your time. Hugs and love you.

Blondie I am so glad you are enjoying yourself.

Peggy how did the first leg of the trip go?

Jenn what are you doing this weekend?
