Default ***Misfit Monday (5-1-17)***

Happy May! Misfit Monday ON a MONDAY!!!

Robert is off today. We're meeting with the Minister this morning to go over details of the service. I'm really nervous so I'm glad he's going with me. Preston is at Grandma's so she'll be taking him to school which helps so much.

My uncle is coming on Friday and will be staying at my dad's place so we've been busy cleaning over there. Hopefully we can finish up today so that's one less thing I have to take care of.

Thank you all for your support. It's been a rough week. I'm going through all the emotions and wondering if I did enough.

Happy May Day in many parts of the world. New beginnings as everything wakes up in the garden. The season is finally kicking in. Back from my trip and this is what greeted me when I got home.

Sorry things are so stressful Jennifer. Do not second guess yourself - you did your best! Prayers and hugs as you go through this next week. We are all thinking of you!

Grateful your hubby is off today to be with you, sweetie, for surely this is a very tough road to walk through. It is natural for you to be feeling a myriad of emotions, just know you did the best you could and leave the rest to God. Sending you much loving support and prayers.

Cute chuckle...

Waitress!

We were standing in line outside a busy restaurant. The harried hostess was checking to find out how many people were in each group. "Party of two," the woman behind us said to her, "and could we please have Michelle?"

Annoyed looks turned to knowing smiles when she added, "Michelle is my daughter, and just once in my life I want her to wait on me!"

Jennifer- Thinking of you! It is a very difficult time.

My green grass is white. It is snowing and 36 degrees. I know it won't stay. I hope it doesn't ruin my tulips and rhubarb!

Happy May Day!

Beautiful sunny day to get out to the salon for a much needed hair coloring with highlights and some cutting.

There is nothing like a visit to the hairdresser to lift ones spirit!

This little pillow makes me smile when I walk into the living room!

Gail, cute pillow!

You are so right about getting your hair done, I feel so much better. She did a great job on the color and highlights.

Will be taking Reynold this afternoon for his neck shots at the pain management clinic. Hopefully it will give him relief and he will be able to move his neck. I think I am more nervous than he is.

Well.... we got to the pain management place, however, we had to reschedule for next Friday because Reynold takes aspirin daily for his heart. He has to be off the aspirin for seven days before they are able to perform the procedure. Feel so badly for him, however, everything happens for a reason.

Poor Reynold! I think they should have told you that before the appointment.

Rainy, gloomy day here. I was expecting a lot more rain, though. Tomorrow a friend and I are going to a memorial service for another friend's mom. These are wonderful friends from church. Sunday Bill and I are meeting another couple for dinner. We haven't seen them in over 10 years - unacceptable! They moved over an hour a way and then kids' schedules and life got in the way. Hoping we can schedule more fun times with them.

Joanne, they did give Reynold a sheet with the info on it, however, he confused it with his other surgery on his ear. The ear surgery states he can continue to take his meds. Just another sign of 'old age'....

I have been forgetting a lot of things lately. Including simple words - I am a little concerned. My mind literally goes blank . . .

You are not alone! When my mother had vascular dementia, I thought I had some of it, too. Her doctor told me, "No, you are under stress. Stress short-circuits the brain." Stress does more damage to our minds and body than anything else.

Chuckle for today


Government in Action

The General Services Administration has experts who actually visit different agencies and suggest ways to streamline their day-to-day routines.

One such expert visited the Federal Communications Commission and suggested that they get rid of the clutter. He suggested, as a start, that they throw out all correspondence over ten years old.

The FCC director loved the idea and replied, "Good thought. But first, we'll have to make three copies of everything."

Hung up my forsythia wreath on the front door. Just makes me smile when I look at it.

The buds are coming out everywhere. It is my most favourite time of the year. Grass has been cut for the first time. Birds are singing their little hearts out. Flower beds are all looking tidy - now for some heat!!!

You are always one busy lady, my friend. Am trying to find someone to give our home a cleaning and have not been able to find anyone. This ol' lady just can't do it as I would like.

Am sure you will enjoy A being home for 5-6 weeks and she will be a wonderful camp counselor.

These are just too cute!

Why God Made Moms

Why God Made Moms Answers given by 2nd grade school children to the following questions:

Why did God make mothers?
1. She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.
2. Mostly to clean the house.
3. To help us out of there when we were getting born.

How did God make mothers?
1. He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.
2. Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.
3. God made my Mom just the same like he made me. He just used bigger parts.

What ingredients are mothers made of?
1. God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and one dab of mean.
2. They had to get their start from men's bones. Then they mostly use string, I think.

Why did God give you Your mother and not some other mom?
1. We're related!
2. God knew she likes me a lot more than other people's moms like me.

What kind of little girl was your mom?
1. My Mom has always been my Mom and none of that other stuff.
2. I don't know because I wasn't there, but my guess would be pretty bossy.
3. They say she used to be nice.

What did Mom need to know about dad before she married him?
1. His last name.
2. She had to know his background. Like is he a crook? Does he get drunk on beer?
3. Does he make at least $800 a year? Did he say NO to drugs and YES to chores?

Why did your Mom marry your dad?
1. My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world And my Mom eats a lot.
2. She got too old to do anything else with him.
3. My grandma says that Mom didn't have her thinking cap on.

Who's the boss at your house?
1. Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goof ball.
2. Mom. You can tell by room inspection. She sees the stuff under the bed.
3. I guess Mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do than dad.

What's the difference between Moms and dads?
1. Moms work at work and work at home and dads just go to work at work.
2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.
3. Dads are taller and stronger, but Moms have all the real power 'cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friend's.
4. Moms have magic, they make you feel better without medicine.

What does your Mom do in her spare time?
1. Mothers don't do spare time.
2. To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long.

What would it take to make your Mom perfect?
1. On the inside she's already perfect. Outside, I think some kind of plastic surgery.
2. Diet. You know, her hair. I'd diet, maybe blue.

If you could change one thing about your Mom, what would it be?
1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean. I'd get rid of that.
2. I'd make my Mom smarter. Then she would know it was my sister who did it and not me.
3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head.

Hi everyone! DH and I just came home from seeing "The Drowsy Chaperone" at the school where I work. It was hilarious. I had never heard of the show. I love seeing the kids act. They are so talented.

Gail - spring is my favorite season, too. I love seeing everything come back to life. I love the lush green, the beautiful flowers. It really does my heart good!

Ladies, the last couple of days I've been struggling. Just feeling really down again and to to pit all off, my best friend (we've been friends since we were 11) called to tell me one of her friends committed suicide. I didn't know the woman, but felt I did. My friend talked about her a lot, I knew her husband had divorced her and turned her daughters against her. They wouldn't have anything to do with her. I cried for my friend and the woman who died. I guess I could just use a few prayers for me, too. Thank you.

There is always terrible circumstances in life - daily. If we didn't have faith we would be defeated in what life we have but God gave us HOPE. Hope for a new day ahead and for a life after without pain and suffering. I have been watching a tv series that shows how hopeless life can seem - drugs, battered women, rape and stealing. I know these situations exist for some people. Praying constantly in all circumstances is what saves us. Our constant line to God. I will pray for you and your friends friend and family. May God give you comfort and HOPE.

Happy Mother's Day!

Joanne- Sorry to hear about your friend. It is hard to lose a friend. Take care of yourself.

Gail- thanks for the positive post. We all need to remember that there is always hope.

The temp hit 80 today. it is HOT! Now the rain storms come over the next few days. My lilacs are in full bloom and apple tree is covered with blossoms. It smells wonderful. Maybe, even a bot too much!

Joan - funny it is COLD here today! And rainy and gloomy.

Gail - I'm trying not to dwell. I know there are many who have it worse - it's just been a tough couple of days.

Reynold will be going for several skin scrapings on his ear. The plastic surgeon will scrape his ear, send it to the lab which immediately check it for skin cancer and this will continue until the results show clear. I will be going with him to drive home. Appreciate your prayers.

Difficult thing to go through. Hope it goes well and is over soon. Hugs and prayers.

Everything went well for Reynold yesterday. He is in pain which is expected for a few days. Thank you all for your prayers and kind thoughts.

Caterina- I have been thinking about you often lately.
Gail- You are so good at decorating. Thanks for sharing your talent with me.
Joanne- Take care my friend and on-line little sister!

Hello to everyone else... Sorry I have been terrible at posting. I just don't have much to say!

I'm getting ready for summer and fixed my outside wreath. This is our Victoria holiday weekend. The barbeque is ready and the gazebo has a place to sit. Today it is 92 degrees and we are suffering as it was 50 on Monday.

Reynold took the bandage off his ear so he could shower. The site still looks swollen, red and sore. We have to put much aquaphor on it to keep it moist and rebandage. Feel so sorry for him.
