Thanks Tina>

I am the one who gets to drive the 30 minutes, or more to the accountant & sit there while he goes thru 3 sets of taxes.

So, yes it is good that the process can now begin. I just pray the weather holds for me when my appt. day comes. Several years back, there was an ice storm the day we went.

Rod drove, & my MIL, my DD, Valarie, & I were all in the car with him. Thankfully Rod got us there & home safely. I will not be going on ice, trust me.

I should be going to bed soon.

..... G'nite everyone.... wavy

Good morning..

Yay for family time and taxes getting done.

My 35 yr old SIL fell yesterday and fractured her hip, I guess being told to de ice their step a few days ago didn't mean much at the time. rolz

My car is in bad shape, rotors are done, sensors are going and I was told that it won't pass inspection even with work. I pray it can last until April when the inspection is out. Time to start looking for a replacement.

The cold snap will not let up, between the heat in here and the cold outside I even have frost on the inside of my steel door badday

Wow, that's cold, Sunny. What is you general inside temperature? It is 52* out right now and 61* inside. We are under a no burn order because of air quality.
It is warmer in Teddy's room because I have a space heater in there. I will bake something today to warm up the kitchen.

Good morning.
Good, Sunny. I was afraid it was uncomfortably cold inside as well as out.
Today I am in shirt sleeves. It is 63* out and 73* in.
Today I am doing the bedding and things like a usual Sunday. Even though it is a holiday tomorrow.

It is specifically Lincoln's birthday. Which is actually on the 12th. They move it around these days to make long weekend. Same with President's day next weekend. It used to be Washington's b-day on the 22nd.
You have Family day next weekend, don't you, Sunny?

Valarie & Henry are on their way home.

I think I may do some dessert making.

IT would be nice if we ever got days off for said holidays.

You would think that in Illinois we would at least get off for Lincoln... rolz

Hi all,

Read your post and thought I had lost another week... did last month ... but our school holiday is end of this week 13th and then the 16th, only will affect Timothy so guess it's not that big a deal for us ... but will be nice to have extra time to do stuff with them..

I finished up my office cleaning up and out today- shredded old stuff... boys were here and they love to feed the shredder.... got tax stuff all in one place and will make appt. for that soon... Joe took rest of stuff we are donating too... more stuff gone! Yay!

Last load of laundry is going now... found a load of towels in dryer that I just plain forgot was in there... at least it was all the way dry and not half dry-- did get Joe to blow out the dryer vent and it seems to be working better now... was taking a really long time to dry stuff but since it's been so warm I asked him to blow it out and now it's much better - nice to save electricity when I can--

Carrie is still not feeling to well... not as bad but not right either... getting more worried for her- at least her job has her on sick leave so that's good...Nicoli is fine now- watched him running around like a typical 9 yr old and couldn't believe he was in hospital a few days ago... we went over there for a little while so Carrie could give Joe a haircut .. while she was at it she did Jon and Timothy too... lot of hair was in her yard!

Well off to get last load and fold now- make myself some potato soup and call it a day...Joe just took boys home for their dinner time... just closed our windows for the evening .. been really warm here the last few days 70's... keep having to tell myself it is still winter here...

It is minus -47*F out there this morning....everything is beyond frozen. Nana, you are welcome to send any extra heat this way if you can.

OH MY GOODNESS, Sunny !! I am so very sorry. that is terrible weather. I hope it soon passes.

I would gladly give you some of my temperature degree points if I could. I just keep praying for spring, I really do.

Today it is phone calls & an errand or two.

Oh Sunny ,

Sending all the warmth your way I can...I would just curl up in a ball in that kind of cold... I know we had it in Alaska when I was a kid- but that was a long time ago. Tina that winter witch needs to go take a nap or something.. a long one.. We are supposed to get some rain tomorrow... we could use it.


Joe just took the truck into be emmisioned.. hopefully won't be to busy today... and the new catalytic converter has enough miles on it to register ok... only have till end of month without having to pay a penalty for it...



I started a crock of leftover soup this morning - veggie , beef... have some chicken to cook off bones and will make some chicken and veggie soup out of that in a few minutes.. will freeze in portion bags for me for lunches... thinking of baking some fish for dinner tonit... just sounds good... maybe some Spanish rice to go with....

Thanks for prayers for Carrie, hoping she gets over this soon too.... it's taking so long for her to feel better it's worrying me...


Have a good day all....gotta get busy

Nana

No special diet for kidney stone for Carrie- they weren't able to test to see what they are made of to tell her what to avoid especially... she has given up soda.. just before she got this ... right now she can't eat much of anything and has lost 10lbs or so.. she can get one meal down a day she says without feeling sick...

My beef veggie soup came out really good... got it cooling now .. will get it in freezer tonit.. will do chicken tomorrow... will have a nice soup stash for lunches.

The boys came over this afternoon.. 2 of them . Nicoli is doing school with Carrie.. Derek does his evenings with Jon.. he explains stuff to him so he gets it- sometimes that is very challenging to do... we have come up with some new ways to teach him between us- with his unique disability it can be a real challenge..

Well off to see if fish is thawed... going to oven fry it ...

Has Carrie's doc suggested Flomax (prescription) or Saw Palmetto (generic) for the stones. Lemon water or cranberry juice help to dissolve stones as well... fidget I know nothing other than what I was told. why

Thanks Bill, yes they have her using Flomax,, and she is drinking gal of water- lemon , reg , orange slices and cranberry and pomegranate .. they don't "see" another stone but are assuming one is stuck somewhere causing her pain- no infection according to blood work... and something shows up on xray they can't tell what it is - they will do another cat scan on Thurs if this doesn't resolve and as she still has pain and trouble going looks like that will happen,,, just scary when so called specialists don't know what things are happening...

Fish came out good...dishes are done... quiet night of tv is sounding really good- now they say if we get rain won't be till Wed morning...

Have a good evening all..

Nana
