I'm in for a few minutes to grab lunch. I have been sanding down a dresser that DD bought for GG. Second hand finds are great deals....until you realize that there are 4 coats of paint that needs to be stripped first lol

Have a good day everyone.

I don't believe that I didn't come in this morning.
Good morning, and good afternoon for most all of you. I'm about ready for a nap.
Have fun with your dresser, Sunny.

Sweet dreams everyone.
How was your trip to the doctor's today, Carol?
I have spent the evening uninstalling and reinstalling my AVG. It was the only way to fix it. I am still not thrilled with the outcome but I will live with it for now.

I was sure I came in & said how my day went, so sorry.
Today my MIL had an earlier appt. so we got home about 4 hours earlier.. (YAY) It went much smoother, although my MIL said she will be glad when this is all done.

Tomorrow there is another earlier appt. then Friday and form then on out until she is done, the appt. will be at 2:00. I am hoping that will work out well for me.

Good night & sweet dreams

Hi all.

Hope the appt's work their way into part of your schedule Junie.

Tina, I installed AVG last week...it seems to work well. Hoping I have no issues. Is your computer lagging?

We are finally supposed to get a nice day....followed by a week of rain again. I'll be outdoors mowing grass today.

Have a good one.

Good morning. I have to go out today and get some stuff. I'll buy for the whole weekend while I am out.
It's much cooler this morning and that's good. I'm not ready for summer.
Sunny, I have always used AVG. But one component of it began to fail. So I had to undo it and re-install. It is good now.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday.

Good Morning.

I am glad that the both of you like AVG. I hated it, I felt like it was doing nothing for my computer. I now have a thing called "Webroot". My brother put it on here. he gets it form Wal-mart. so far so good. it is like $15 - $20 a year....

My day just opened up. Now that is good for today but bad for the month of June.

I wish you all a great day !

So sorry to confuse, Tina. My MIL has 16 radiation treatments to go thru...which takes up 2-1/2 weeks of June and perhaps a few extra days after that.

we already have to make up one day.

Ah, I understand. Good luck to her with the radiation.
I bless John's radiation treatments every day. They weren't geared at prolonging his life at all, but aimed at relieving pain. And it worked.

MY MIL had a spindle cell neoplasm that was not addressed in time
(she was old after all...which is not our take on the situation but the homes & her primary care Drs.)
so now it is a sarcoma..but it has not spread..so after her surgery, radiation is the answer.

I am glad that John's radiation helped him. I am sure that was comforting to you all.

I didn't shop today. I sent Jonni out to fill my tank and get some bread. That will do for us until tomorrow when I will go

Good morning.

I have to stop this habit I have gotten into. I wake every morning when Rod is getting ready to leave for work----I need to sleep longer in the morning.

Well, the transport service called me last night saying that they would be there to pick Marie up & take her to her appt. I hope we do not have a replay of yesterday. For $355.00 a trip (& that is with a discount) you would think they would be jumping at the chance to take her.

going to get ready to go--I have errands to run before I go to the Nursing home.

Very bad day today. MIL was out of humor...plus I think the driver of the transport van has Tourette's Syndrome.
IMO not a good thing for a van driver to have.... not to mention her constant chatter set off my MIL.

I wasn't able to get in today...the cable company was working on lines up the road from here.

Off to catch up.

Good to see you in, Sunny.
I am sorry, Carol. That sounds awful to me.
I did get out today. I feel good getting things done. Now I think I am set until next week. And maybe til the first. But I need to go out sometime and get my oil changed and a tire rotation, etc.

Yes it was very bad..and I did not care for the driver's speed of driving either.


We went to the cemeteries this evening. Now all of our loved ones have flowers on their graves.

I put a flag out for John a couple of weeks ago. Or rather Ted did. The cemetery will do flags for all this weekend.

Glad you and Ted went. That is a nice remembrance for the both of you. Was Jonni along ??

My dad has a flag by his headstone as well. The cemetery where he is already put out their flags.

I am headed to bed. G'nite & Sweet Dreams to you all.

Hi all.

I was at the cemetary last week. I need to go back this week to clean some headstones. The church has closed and the upkeep of the remainder is done on a volunteering basis. It is sad to see how it is going down hill.

Today we are going to Visit Grandboy and put together his mom's new push mower....then we'll watch her cut grass and lament about it haha

LOL..perhaps you should just leave--or remain quiet--I would hate for her to "invite" you or your DH to cut for her..LOL

How do you wash your headstones, Sunny. MY DH's families stones are in dire need of cleaning. And their cemetery is maintained...SMH

Hi all,

Nana checking in..... been interesting few weeks, came home after 6 weeks or so ... after second visit with ortho doc, he said traveling was ok, stayed home for almost a month... went back and got my cast off... Yay! stayed long enough to get a walking boot fitted and get used to using it... using a walker still but so much easier... came home and now doing pt with a therapist... 9 visits total... then we will be going back for hopefully last visit, meanwhile we are painting and packing house.. bathroom upstairs is done except for paint.. Joe is doing that tomorrow.. will do downstairs bath next... and touch up stuff in rest of house after..
oldest dd is coming next week to help us pack up , we will clean the carpets and put house up for sale... house across the street sold in 5 days for 20000 over asking price.. that would be nice, we will go down and take our furniture and stuff and rent a house by the month, and look for one to buy.. wasn't original plan but will work..and be a whole lot easier when I can walk easier.

The boys are out of school now. can't believe Timothy is a sophomore now and getting his permit next week, Derek tried out for the summer baseball team at the highschool too and made it, they are both so tall now, and Nicoli did very well with school too , he is getting taller too,, eye to eye with me now... pretty good for a kid that didn't grow for 3 years...

The newest great grandson is due the end of June, sure hope we are still here but we will come back if we need too, Joe knows the road very well now. .LOL!

Hi, Sherri. Yes it is so very good to hear from you, and to know that you are healing so very well. Plans change, but that is on it will all work out in the end.
Might even be better, you can buy a house that you will be really happy with, instead of one that "would do".

Yes, your grandsons are getting big. But then they tend to do that---even if we would wish they did not.

Thanks Tina. The storms went south of us. we got strong winds and some rain, but so far that is all. We might have more thru the night, but oh well.

Hi all.

Good to hear from you Nana..I am glad that you are well.

I was watching the news and it showed a place in Illinois called Peoria(sp?) that had hail the size of baseballs....is that close to you Junie? Stay safe.

Last night the neighbors dogs were chasing a moose through my yard...what a ruckus out there. It's the time of year to start dealing with the wild life.

I am spared moose here. Thank goodness.
Safe travels for all on the roads today.

Good Morning. Rod is going to see his Mom w/o me as I am with her all week. It was nice of him to think of having me stay home.

Sunny---I know that there was to be golf Ball-sized hail with the storm that was coming thru, but while I was prepared for it (I brought a lot of my plants indoors)
it went south & apparently north of us.

Peoria, IL is 136 miles north of us. Google says it take 1 hr & 58 minutes to get there.

WE had strong winds but nowhere hear the 70MPH they were predicting in some places. Then we also had some rain but nothing to write home about.

Today we, in this area, are supposed to have scattered showers. So, we shall see what happens.

I wish you all a safe & happy day.
