Oh Irishstepper I am so sorry you are ill. You get well soon ok. Get your rest... As far as being light skinned I say I glow in the dark, will remember your sun glasses comment. LOL. CR, I have about 125 miles to go not to bad. Unless it is blizzarding. My Dad will be happy to see us girls. So will my other brother. I am just going to take it easy hopefully my sister won't be in a cleanning mood, she has all the time in the world to do things and the money to do it with. I go there to see my dad not clean his house all the time. I cleanned the last time I was there. I don't really mind but when I can only stay a few days it is for me also.
Hi everybody. Gosh, CelticRose, this forum is a great idea. It sure was great reading all the posts from so many friends that I haven't been able to visit with lately.
Life is still crazy here. Now my dad has been in the hospital since a week ago Tuesday with pneumonia. The lung specialist is pessimistic about his recovery but today our family doctor told us not to give up yet. If he can get a bit stronger his odds are greater. It is now in the hands of our Lord. Had my hubby to the doctor today...he has a bad case of bronchitis. Good news tho.....my mom got a good report from her cardiologist. He says her nuclear stress test results were good and he doesn't have to see her for 6 months!!!!
The sun was shining today...high in the low sixties. When I got home from the hospital I checked out my garden. Lots of perennials popping thru the ground. Wild daffodils in the fields for the last couple of weeks. Today I saw my first flowering shrub in bloom. I do believe spring is here!!!! Yippee!!!!
Hey Bluegrasslady! Good to see you! I am sorry to hear about your dad. He has really had a very hard time, hasn't he? And your hubby too! Wow! When it rains it pours, eh? Glad to hear that your mother's tests were good. Life sure has been full for you and your family. How are you doing through all this? Must be hard to try to be strong all the time. Take care of yourself too and keep in touch. Hugs!
Went out of town to family birthday party today, which was very nice. Hubby's mother is 90 years old today! We're all making plans to go off roading in the desert in a couple of weeks on quads so we can take some photos of the desert in full bloom. With all this rain we have had, it should be a beautiful spring here. Will be a great photo op for me too! Not looking forward to seeing any rattlesnakes though.
With my 22 pound current weight loss, family members could really tell and really remarked about how good I looked! Woo hoo! somebody could tell!
Weather is very windy and breezy here, but nice and sunny.
Hope everyone is doing well and will have a Happy Easter!
Arizonia Wildcats lost last night! Fourteen points ahead in the last four minutes of the game and they managed to lose! My husband was so angry he threw the TV controller across the room and is in severe depression today. All on the AZ Wildcat message boards are filled with lots of folks in anger and depression saying this was the "biggest choke of the AZ NCAA tournament." Did anybody watch the game?
Its damp and cool in VA today. (My kinda weather! ) Not doing much today. We were gonna go out and eat and get some groceries, but my daughter threw one of her tantrums, so we're just gonna stay home and let her stew...
