Glad they got it fixed.

Just hanging out until Project Runway starts at 8:00. Haven't heard from Doug so I don't know what's going on. I did my hair and makeup so that I'd be ready to go in a moment's notice, but it may have been all for naught.

Oh no - I hope everything is okay with Doug. I'm so tired, I am staying up until the hour of 9 - then I'm hitting the hay. I've very tired, but we'll see if I actually sleep.

It's 9:15. You better be in bed.

Can't make any promises. I could try making something similar but it wouldn't be exactly the same. And it wouldn't have a glowing moon because that was a Martha Stewart sticker that I bought at least 2 years ago.

I hope he is, too! Never heard from them last night.

Went to bed early (for me, before 1:00 a.m.), and now have been up since stinkin' 5:30 a.m. I wanted to get up early, but not THAT early.

Miss I, hope you were able to get some sleep. You, too, Jo Jo. Caro, I always felt like a bad parent when parents would say they missed their kids when they were away. I was so thankful for a little break when mine were away when they were little. Of course, with homeschooling, I'm still that way! LOL! But, when they go for longer, I do miss them. I know one day they'll be gone off on their own & I'll really miss them.

Hi Shani Pants!

Kristi, did you gain 10 lbs. yet? I just want to keep off the little bit I lost & lose more. It's not easy, I'll say that. Blech! I do love food.

So tired. Haven't slept enough in so long. I wake up & often have a backache during the night. I really think a kidney stone is moving b/c it's in one spot & sharp pain, but not severe, if that makes sense. Not a muscular ache. Worker hasn't been here all week. I just don't bother getting things "ready" for him anymore. His vehicles are in the shop, so I know he has a reason not to be here. Just not sure what homeowner will say & of course we have to plan our next move---literally.

Just downloaded a chemistry book to go with the DVD series I ordered. This will be Phil's job, not mine! Off to eat something & work on fractions. Oh, yippee! LOL! I don't mind the fractions at all & Natalie is cooperating now. She's really smart but gets frustrated if she doesn't understand RIGHT NOW. Bethany doesn't get frustrated, but doesn't get math well at all. I get frustrated sometimes & try to not show it. She can do one step of a long division problem, but after she subtracts, she can't remember what to bring down, how to do the next step (which is the same as step 1), etc. I printed out a chart & I THINK she might have finally caught on. She's 17 & doing about 4th grade level math. Sigh. That's why I got the DVD chemistry series. She can't do the math needed for a college prep chemistry class. Well, that and I think she'll learn better with a DVD as she picks things up well if she watches them.

Wait, I said I was off to eat & do math, then kept typing. Diarrhea of the fingers. ha, ha!!!!

Afternoon! I WAS in bed at 9. It was at least 10 or 10:30 before I fell asleep, but that is because my FAMILY IS SO LOUD. Actually, just two of them - Bill and Marie. They were in and out of the house and they slam the door. We live in a small ranch so I hear everything. And dogs bark. BUT, I slept well - without meds.

Not sure what I'm doing today. Yesterday was such a complete waste - today I have to do something!

<--- Waiting on Doug. He, his brother Mike, and Peter should be here soon. Mike is going to drop them off so he can run around with his friends for a while. So Doug and Peter and I will go do our own running around.

Glad you slept well, JoJo. Bill and Marie (and the dogs) need to learn how to sneak around quietly after dark.

Apparently Mrs. Wig is going to paint the bathroom this fall--the same color. She has paint leftover from the last time she painted.

I was kinda thinking we'd paint in the spring as part of the remodel--with a new color. Maybe not.

Glad you finally heard from Doug. Did their plans change? Either way, I'm glad you will be spending time with him today.

I have a feeling that the paint your mom is doing now is going to need to be redone in the spring. Those workmen aren't going to worry about scratching up walls. Just sayin'! LOL

My two old lady dogs (Scarlet and Tiki) are both hard of hearing so they bark at very little anymore. It is Chloe, who hears everything (her ears DO stick up and she's young). But I mean, she. hears. every. thing. A leaf blowing in the yard when the windows are open might get a little woof from her.

Another 6:00 AM morning!

Up and showered
Met Cathi to help set up an Art Show
Took latest painting to be framed
Cleaned a house
Went to bank
Then home


Headed out this evening for FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS! I love high school football.


Karlie's school is playing the high school that Kamryn will go to. They are going to introduce all the younger cheerleaders before the game.


I will sit on Kamryn's side to start with then go watch Karlie. Once I change sides security will not let me go back.

EXACTLY!!

But there's no telling that to a Bohemie woman determined to finish a project as soon as she decides to start it. lol

I don't think Doug's plans really changed. They just got here a little later than he originally thought they would. It's a totally different ballgame traveling with his mom. Her condition has deteriorated (not just memory wise, but also physically: she's much frailer), and it really throws her off to be out of her element, off her usual schedule, etc.

So when they got into town last night, they just picked up her friend Rose, went to dinner, and then headed to the hotel.

All 3 guys came here after meeting Doug's Mom and Rose for lunch. We visited with Mrs. Wig for a while, then Mike and Peter went back to the hotel for a nap while Doug and I went downtown to check out the new library. It just opened a week ago and is beautiful. It got badly flooded in 2008, being on the street that runs right next to the river, so they pretty much had to start from scratch. They bought a different building downtown (still in the flood plain, so I don't know how smart that really was ), had to renovate, and of course had to replace most of the books.

I got a new library card and checked out 5 art/journal books that are BRAND NEW. I want to keep them. LOL

After the library: came home to cool off and visit with the folks.

6:00 Met the guys and friends of his brother's at a restaurant in New Bo.
After dinner, walked down the street to a coffee shop for dessert and coffee.
Went one more block down the street to a bar for drinks.

9:30 I took Doug and Peter back to the hotel. Mike stayed at the bar with his friends.

On my way home I stopped at Wally World for milk and a few items, then took my car through the car wash. I've been parking under the linden tree and the windows were filthy (not to mention there were several spots of bird poop ).

Tomorrow morning the guys are picking me up to go to the farmer's market, then we're going to Rose's house to watch the football game. They will probably leave at halftime. It's about a 7-8 hour drive home and Mike has to work on Sunday.

So I better get to bed!! Nighty night!

Did you have a good time? Which team had the best cheerleaders??

I really did not watch our cheerleaders. Kamryn did not cheer. Her team was just recongnized in pregame stuff.

Hola! Had a long day after a short night; not sure how long I'll be able to stay awake.

The guys picked me up around 8:45 to go downtown to the farmer's market. Twice a month they have it downtown, 200+ vendors, several streets are closed for it.

After the farmer's market we went to Rose's house to order pizza and watch the football game. Rose's son and DIL stopped by to visit, and another neighborhood boy and his GF stopped by to visit. You could just tell that Rose was enjoying the heck out of having all this extra company! (She's widowed.)

It was difficult to see how Doug's mom has deteriorated. Physically she has become quite frail. And the Alzheimer's is obviously progressing. She knew who the boys were, even Peter, but seemed a little surprised that Peter was there. And then she got obsessed with my little purse, which was sitting on the kitchen table. I think she asked about it 4 times while we were there. Otherwise, she didn't have much to say, and usually the things she did say seemed out of context or a little nonsensical.

Anyway, the boys left at halftime and my mom came and got me so they could hit the road directly.

Came home, watched the rest of the football game, had BLTs for supper, watched What Not To Wear (mom taped it for me last night). Now I have a movie on but I honestly think I should just go to bed and try to get a good night's sleep.

The boys looked so cute in their Iowa t-shirts. lol

Peter - Mike - Doug

You did have a busy couple of days, Miss I. I'm glad you got to spend time with Doug. Alzheimer's is a miserable disease. A friend's mom was diagnosed with early onset about a year ago. Just when her husband was dying of cancer. So far, she is doing pretty well and her DIL has said that you don't really notice it too much. She does repeat things, but it isn't all that much more than some older people.

Today was Bill's birthday. We went to a late breakfast, then to check out some RVs (smaller than our current one, newer and much more expensive - LOL), two other stores. Home to put away some of the groceries we picked up. Then out to test drive a car, a stop at AC Moore and then dinner at PF Chang's. Now we're home and I'm ready for bed! We ate a big dinner and each had a drink. He was feeling his before dinner. I'm just tired from mine!

Tomorrow he wants to fix something on our RV and I have some cleaning I want to do inside. We will be going away for a long weekend later in the month. I'm excited about it.

OH - we saw a really, really nice RV today. Brand new but just so nice!!! It is about the same size as our current one though and we were looking for something smaller. And we aren't really ready to buy, just looking to see what we might like for the future. It is fun looking at what it out there!

Happy Sunday!

Happy belated birthday to Bill! Sounds like you had a fun day.

Mrs. Wig was all hot to "get out and go somewhere" today. She told me if Mr. Wig didn't want to go somewhere, she was still going to go. (Reading between the lines, this means: "Do you want to go with me instead?" So I asked, "Where are you going?" She said, "Well, I need to get a perm at Sally Beauty and I thought I'd go to Bed Bath and Beyond to look for hangers because Walmart doesn't have the kind I want."

I said, "If all you're going to do is run in to a couple of stores and buy one item, then you don't need me to come with you."

And mind you, if Mr. Wig had agreed to go somewhere with her, I can guarantee it wouldn't be Sally Beauty or Bed Bath and Beyond. LOL

Good for you, Granny!

We had smoked porkchops, tomatoes, and cucumbers for dinner. The porkchops were already cooked; all I had to do was reheat. They were pretty yummy! (Had never bought them before.) There wasn't a scrap left.

I worked on mom's scrapbook this afternoon and after dinner. She found more photos for me to incorporate. I'll never have this thing done! The reunion is in 2 weeks! I may have to take a leave of absence from work. haha!

Watched Food Truck Race. I'm so glad those booby ladies got eliminated!

One of the best things about doing my mom's scrapbook: hearing her giggle when we look at some of the photos. (Wish you could see these in person, they're hysterical. Click through twice to enlarge.)

After the farmer's market we went to Rose's house to order pizza and watch the football game. Rose's son and DIL stopped by to visit, and another neighborhood boy and his GF stopped by to visit. You could just tell that Rose was enjoying the heck out of having all this extra company! (She's widowed.)

It was difficult to see how Doug's mom has deteriorated. Physically she has become quite frail. And the Alzheimer's is obviously progressing. She knew who the boys were, even Peter, but seemed a little surprised that Peter was there. And then she got obsessed with my little purse, which was sitting on the kitchen table. I think she asked about it 4 times while we were there. Otherwise, she didn't have much to say, and usually the things she did say seemed out of context or a little nonsensical.

Anyway, the boys left at halftime and my mom came and got me so they could hit the road directly.

Came home, watched the rest of the football game, had BLTs for supper, watched What Not To Wear (mom taped it for me last night). Now I have a movie on but I honestly think I should just go to bed and try to get a good night's sleep.

The boys looked so cute in their Iowa t-shirts. lol

Peter - Mike - Doug

Sounds fun.

But, did they bring you a present from London?
