Jen went in at 9:30 this morning

Matt text and said Jen went to the hospital this morning. She is in labor but doesn’t have any idea how long she will be in labor. This Baby is taking her time to come out and see the world. We are really excited, can you tell!!LOL Since the baby is coming past the due date Matt and Jen want Elliott and I to wait to go to St. Louis to visit. They want some time alone with the baby. We will have more time with Bobby and family. Baby update will follow this.

My husband fell for a scam today that they would fix his computer online. At first he would not believe me that it was not legit and I had to call Kara and have her tell him. I think I stopped it in time from doing damage.  Today he started his low fiber diet:  Chicken noodle soup and mac and cheese. I had to finish off last nights dessert because it had whole grains in it. Tomorrow I have to go shopping for white bread. I am cooking two different meals.

Feels like Spring!

Hope to see you all at Susan’s tomorrow night!

I am happy for this mild weather after last week in Minnesota.  We had an icestorm, 2 snow storms and below zero weather.  And I had to drive distances during the icestorm and both snowstorms!  Flying was not great on this trip either….had “mechanical problems” on the way up and on the way back!  7 hour delay at Indy airport and then 4 hour delay in the cities when I returned last Friday. 

Now I am looking forward to leaving in 3 weeks for Honolulu, even though it will be spring here!

cc Thursday

Hope to see you at my house. I had a lovely weekend at June’s. We played bridge in three sessions. Bill really enjoyed having Kara stay with him while I was gone. He was feeling well enough that they went out to Donatello’s in Camel. He ate meat.

A Taste of

It was so nice to experience a taste of spring while in Gainesville these past 9 days! While the weather was not perfect everyday, no day was a complete washout or waste of time. Monday, the rainiest of days we used to prep the 3 dinners we made while there. Dave got more exercise than I did…he’d run in the morning and then do a 5 mile walk with me at 7:30. We would then bike or do another walk later in the day. We did go to the beach one day. Dave had to hold me down in my seat once we boarded the plan to be sure I didn’t run off.  The weather forecast there for this week is sunny everyday and 80’s! If we had stayed longer we would have had time to do chores at my sister’s…maybe paint “my” room etc…
Only good thing about coming back…we will see Calvin this weekend.  The times between visits are getting longer….17 days this time!
Looking forward to our next CC

Thanks Maureen

Susan and I were the attendees at Maureen’s for CC on Thursday night…I was happy to get updated on the latest news they shared!  Good for Susan to get away for a week of Bridge and warmer temps! And Maureen, looking forward to more of Calvin and then a Florida trip too!  I am going up to Minnesota again on February 15 to visit my folks in New Ulm, and celebrate my dad’s 93rd birthday on the 16th!

We talked about getting together the last week of February on the 28th or else March 1.  Susan will let us know!

Keep in touch, everyone!

My recommendation Susan is…stay there! I’m also headed to Florida in a few weeks! Dave decided that he would like to join me. I decided to stay a week - I’m sure I will regret not staying 2!  I’ve gained the 5 pounds I usually do every winter - and will need from now until the end of the summer to lose it! I just don’t get the exercise in the winter that I do the rest of the year.
I’m beginning to fill in my summer travel schedule - I think I will go with Dave to NH for his conference.
Safe travels to all - even if it is just running errands!

How to brighten up a gray day in January? I suppose if the sun was shining it would help. Maybe start planning a vacation? In the meantime I watch a video I took of Calvin where he just breaks into a smile! We have been fortunate with the weather cooperating with our travel to Cincy…we left last Friday at 6 a.m. -no big deal for Dave who gets up at 4:30 anyway. Luckily the roads were clear and at that hour the traffic was very light so Dave didn’t need my “help” driving.
It is hard to get motivated to leave the house - and I can use my face as an excuse…I look as if I have the chicken pox after 2 weeks of using the chemo cream. Now we shall see how long it takes to clear up. Hopefully though it will have taken care of some precancerous spots and skin damage!
Hope everyone is recuperating from colds - and thank you for staying away from me! Looking forward to our gathering at the tea room.

Season’s Greetings!

Happy to hear of good Chanukah celebrations….made more special with the little ones around!

We are enjoying Matthew and Davie here ~ they’ll fly back to Florida on January 1.  We are all going to Beef and Boards for NY Eve!  This afternoon we all go to 4 pm church, then back here to eat a light supper.  Tomorrow morning Taylor, Kelly and girls will be over around 11 to open gifts and have a little brunch.  Then later in the afternoon we’ll have a Christmas feast!

So, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!  See you soon, hopefully!

I hope all had a happy one. We had one friend here which was fun. Bill wanted beef filet so no turkey but all the other traditional fixings.  I am thankful for hot water. Bill is just starting to walk with a cane( with a spotter).

Where oh Where?

I’m just checking in…making sure I still remember my password! Where has time gone?...hard to believe that summer - and it appears fall also - are over.  The heat has been turned on at my house much earlier this year.
Calvin had a follow up cardiac appointment and a PT appointment…I am assuming his heart hasn’t changed since I haven’t heard from Rachel.  I have been home 8 full days!  I have enjoyed my routine at home but do miss my playtime with Calvin.  I will be going for a 6 day stint, off 4 days and then on 7…and then just visits whenever it works.
Zach is applying for jobs so we shall see…most likely they will stay in Cincy.
Stay warm, healthy and happy!

Thursday was a wasted day. The dermatologist never sent photos of which spot was squamous on Bill’s head. We sat at surgeon for an hour and a half before being told to go to dermatologist for a recheck later that afternoon. I was exhausted and furious that we had such a messup. Fortunately they manged to get him in on Friday. They only had to dig three times and he was good to go. Meanwhile Bill slowly gets stronger but it is scary that the least twist will send him into painful spasms which sets him back for several days.

Kara and Kat came for supper on Friday night. Saturday we did shopping therapy at Send Pres rummage sale(cashmere sweater) and Goodwill (shirt). Kara is staying downtown at her office and was really challenged trying to find a way around the marathon.

Workday almost over,

We had Star Wars Day at Nora. Different stations with different activities. I’m really tired and ready to go home. Tomorrow is a Pacer Game. Monday is Face Time with Bobby and family. Asher loves to hear our Grandfather Clock. We will see them for Chanukah. Matt and Jen are coming for Thanksgiving. Can’t wait to see Jen Pregnant. She is at the world series this week. See you Wednesday.
