Bill and I both got our baby fix. We love to hold the little ones. The older boy is a cutie and a chatter box. The little girl is a petite cutie, too. Looks just like her mom! We had a very enjoyable evening.

You will probably be surprised to know that Marie went with us, but not Julie. J is still trying to recuperate from the week.
Good for you, JoJo! I'm sure they are glad to be meeting their neighbors. And I'm super happy that Marie went with! Maybe the more she gets out and enjoys herself around others, she'll become less anxious about those types of situations.

Sending positive vibes that Julie is getting rested up after her busy week.

I think the phone and cable companies (which tend to be one and the same these days) are the worst. My parents had a lot of problems with their phone, too. They kept telling my parents if the problem is inside the house they are going to be charged and my mom was always afraid of how expensive it would be so she put off having them come out. And not yet has it been inside the house. I realize your problem is different, but they really need to get that fixed. I wonder if any of those people have a medical issue where they NEED the phone. Yes, a lot of people do have cells these days, but many don't. Especially older folks.

We were supposed to have a break in the heat/humidity today. At 12:30 it was 91 degrees outside. So, we still have our heatwave (day 7 I believe). And it is still humid. Surprisingly, the weather forecasters were wrong - GASP!

I'm going to bed as soon as the weather guesser is done with her portion of the news. Stories about our weekend road trip will have to wait.

Tomorrow will be busy. It's garbage/recycling/yard waste day. First thing in the morning, Dad is taking the motorhome in about the fridge. If the RV has to stay there for a while, one of us will go pick him up (thankfully this place is on our side of town). Mom has some laundry to do and once the RV is back, we'll have to get the fridge and freezer cooling and everything else loaded.

And of all days, the guy is FINALLY coming to replace the back storm door.

And it's supposed to be hot and humid. Blech!

I just hope I get a good night's sleep tonight. I've had about 8 hours of sleep (total) the last 2 nights, and it was not quality sleep. I took my melatonin at 9:30 so hopefully it's getting into my system.

Weather guesser is on. Night-night!

Hi ALL! Sounds like everyone had a busy yet good weekend. We (of course) spent it at the beach house. We have gone down every weekend since we purchased it. Well, Tate did stay home one weekend when I took a co-worker and that was a freaking blast.

Friday night we had a few cocktails at the house and then headed up to the casino - about 11 blocks away. I am NOT a casino type, but Tate loves it. He ended the evening $500 richer. woohoo

Saturday I power washed the driveway and the walkway up to the front door which we never use. I want it to be sparkly for GRANNY! Teehee....it NEEDED to be done. That night we had game night and a lil fire in our outdoor fire pit. It was awesome. The deer AND racoons showed up for their weekly visit. I am sooooooooooooooooo Snow White when we are down there.

Today on the way home we witnessed a HORRIBLE accident. Everyone was ok (I think), but still freaked me out the entire drive home.

Now that I am down with my "Lori post" I shall wish you all a restful sleep and a happy Monday.

Love to all.

Morning!

Slept HARD (which is good). Woke up with a headache and a goopy eye (which is not so good).

Our Lil Rad Taquito was a "question" (aka, the answer) on Jeopardy today!

And I was the only one who got it right.

The category was about food. They showed a picture of a plate of taquitos and the clue was something like, Guacamole is often served with these deep-fried tasty treats. I yelled out, "TAQUITOS!" LOL

One of the contestants guessed tamales. WRONG! The other 2 contestants didn't attempt a guess. (None of them knew what a papaya was either, which was another clue in the category.)

So glad you're enjoying the beach house! I'm jealous of Granny.

Same here! The current charge is $85.

Mom cancelled the first tech call (scheduled for last Wednesday) after they said that it "might" be because of the cables getting cut at the new convenience store construction site. But when we still had no service on Thursday, she called again and they said "Oops, it must not be related to that then."

So they put in another tech request, and the guy was here Friday and we were told we'd have service by 8:00 Friday night. Nope! We still had no service when we left Saturday morning.

While we were at the party Saturday night, they called Mrs. Wig's cell phone and left a message that the problem had been fixed. We didn't get the message until Sunday morning. Got home Sunday afternoon: still no service.

So here it is Monday, seven days later, and the line is still dead.

New back door is finally installed! Mr. Wig told Mrs. Wig she could cross that item off her bucket list. LOL

Add another new twist to the week: my Aunt DeLite died. This is one of my dad's older sisters. And yes, Delite is her real name (her real middle name; her first name is Jeanette. Which would YOU rather be called?).

My cousin Bobby (one of Delite's sons), had told my Dad at the family reunion that he would probably be back within 6 months for his mom's funeral. Instead of 6 months it's just a week.

I don't know if I'll go to the funeral. The folks will be at the State Shoot so they probably won't go (although truth be told, it wouldn't be THAT far of a drive). I hate having to go alone and be the "family representative," and have to explain why the folks aren't there, and receive the dirty looks from people like my overbearing Aunt June.

I was keeping it quiet. I was afraid to say anything - I think you all understand. I'm just so happy she finished. She is too. Julie's friend, Anne (who is now really a family friend) went with her. They are talking about opening a business together. If that ever happens, I don't know. BUT she can do a few dogs a week out of the house.

JoJo, I just got off the phone with Stella. She had to extend her stay at her mom's because her mom has been in the hospital! Kidney failure, fluid build-up, congestive heart failure. She spent something like 12 days in the hospital. She's home now, and they've hired a home health care person to come in twice a day to prepare meals and to monitor her weight (necessary due to the medications she's on; if her weight fluctuates by just 3 pounds they have to adjust the dosage).

Thought you might like to know. I'm going to try to get a card sent to her this week (I'm behind on cards!).

I need some SU paper. Can you place an order for me ASAP? If so I'll email you a list.

Poor Stella. Although she told me she might have to extend her stay.

Of course I can place an order for you. I'd be happy to!

I understand. I'm so glad she pursued it and finished it! It's a great start.

Aloha!


Had a busy weekend, including helping friends install a water heater yesterday.

Before doing that, Will took his mom to the train station. She apparently had a barrage of excuses as to why she acted so horribly in Hawaii, but no apologies and instead blamed me for being too sensitive. Whatever.

Between her and my mother, who threw an actual temper tantrum last night over not being included in our dinner "plans" (which was a pizza we picked up on our way home from doing the water heater), we've decided we are finished doing anything above and beyond for our moms. It's just not worth the crap they dole out.

Before leaving on our vacation, I has a talk with my ex, and we decided it was time to put down our ancient cat that still lives at his house. She'd be 19 next month, and has been in declining health for a couple of years. So we took her in for one last vet visit this afternoon. Didn't expect to be as sad as I am.

Between her and my mother, who threw an actual temper tantrum last night over not being included in our dinner "plans" (which was a pizza we picked up on our way home from doing the water heater), we've decided we are finished doing anything above and beyond for our moms. It's just not worth the crap they dole out.

So they put in another tech request, and the guy was here Friday and we were told we'd have service by 8:00 Friday night. Nope! We still had no service when we left Saturday morning.

While we were at the party Saturday night, they called Mrs. Wig's cell phone and left a message that the problem had been fixed. We didn't get the message until Sunday morning. Got home Sunday afternoon: still no service.

So here it is Monday, seven days later, and the line is still dead.


GRRRRRRRRRR!

Kristi, I'm very sorry for the kitty. And sorry for the drama with the mammas'. DH has the same excuse over and over. She insists that we (I, specially) are too sensitive.
Who would have though that being mean to people will hurt their feelings..... weird

One of the contestants guessed tamales. WRONG! The other 2 contestants didn't attempt a guess. (None of them knew what a papaya was either, which was another clue in the category.)
I would have said Flautas! That's what they're called here in restaurants. THe store bought ones are taquitos, still.
