Welcome Aboard! I have a new pair of “Followers” to this blog. They are Merri and Steve and I extend my THANKS for joining my group. I hope you find some entertaining posts regarding our fulltime lifestyle.
I think my brain has turned to Jell-o tonight. At least it seems that way. I almost gave up on making a post because I’m so tired, but I’m giving it a go before heading off to bed.
Had to do our usual babysitting duty today since the kids had to work the day before the 4th of July holiday. Up at 5:30 and out the door by 6:30. The “Grands” were still sleeping when we got there so I was able to get outside for a couple of laps walking around the block while Bruce stayed behind….then he took his turn. It’s the best we can do for exercise on days like this.
We got the call from our son, Dennis, around 10:00 saying he was being released. We drove over to the hospital to get him. Mackenzie and Zoey were excited to be able to go up to the 7th floor with us to see their Uncle Dennis. They were excited to be able to look down at the parking lot and the trees from so high up. Dennis was more than ready to leave this place that costs more than any luxury suite in the country. Thanks to everyone for the nice comments and best wishes for Dennis’ recovery. All seems to be going as well as can be expected.
We drove him back to his condo and then went over to Costco to pick up his pain medication. We added a few grocery items in the bag as well. Enough to get him through a day or two until he feels like driving.
Went back to the girls house and fixed lunch for all of us. I was loopy by this time and sacked out on the couch for a quick nap. I was up again in about 15 minutes….power nap, I guess…..and packed up the girl’s suitcase since they were coming to the RV for a sleep over. What idiot suggested a sleep over? Oh, yeah that idiot was ME. I also mended some of Darin’s work pants for him and then did a load of laundry for everyone. If anyone is interested….I’ll hire out for housekeeping and babysitting chores. :)
After Stephanie got home from work we had the girls say their good-byes and off we went to the motorhome. Kelly from the Bayfield Bunch suggested we make photo scrapbooks this summer as a project. I thought it was a great idea and I already had 2 spare albums. We dug those out and began the first few pages of the albums. They thought the project was terrific and got busy with their creativity.
Mackenzie has always enjoyed craft projects and she is quite detail oriented.
Being only 5 years old, Zoey is putting hers together in her own creative way. Mackenzie tries to give helpful suggestions, and Zoey wants none of it!!! Butt out is pretty much the thinking there!
After dinner we got together on the couch to watch the Wizard of Oz. Bruce recorded this the other day and the girls had never seen it before. By the time the 2nd wicked witch came into the picture Mackenzie had crawled up onto Bruce’s lap for security. Zoey stuck close to me. I have a feeling we may have company in our bed tonight if the scary dreams begin. I got them into the shower, each in turn, and then into their jammies.
The girls sleep on the sofa bed in the living room. Bruce is hard of hearing and once he gets to sleep he pretty much hears nothing. I, on the other hand, always have my “grandma ear” turned on during the night and hear every peep and moan.
I’m ready for bed myself and it is only about 8:30 as I’m typing out this post. We’ll take the girls to church with us in the morning and then we’re off duty until Tuesday morning. This has been a busy 3 days and we’re ready for a day off.
If I have any brain cells left tomorrow afternoon I’m going to try to catch up on all the blog postings of my Blogging Buddies the past couple of days. I’ve had precious little time to catch up on what everyone is doing.
Is September almost here??
Until next time…..so long for now!
