Steel Magnolias ó #59
 
Good Morning! A gloomy morning but a bit warmer, no wind, and no rain in the forecast. Just waiting around for it to be time to go to the dentist with Bob. Hope you all enjoy a terrific Tuesday and do something you enjoy! :wave:

Jean 05-12-2020 06:50 PM

Bob’s tooth is gone and it took longer to do all the paperwork than to actually pull the tooth. Bob says his mouth is sore from the shots to numb the area but he is ready to eat.

Ceejay, our furnace runs every morning and sometimes even in the evening. Our church is closed through May at least. We have a state wide conference meeting in June where all the pastors and church representatives meet to discuss Protocol, rules, and regulations. It has also been cancelled but the change in pastors to new churches will still happen July 1st. Good luck car shopping. I will have to look but I don’t know that I’ve ever seen blackberries in the store.

I guess supper is going to be scrambled eggs and apple sauce! Since I seem to be in charge of food will head for the kitchen and fill the request. :D Hope you enjoy a nice evening! :wave:

gma22 05-12-2020 07:45 PM

Good evening. Rain, rain go away. Weíve had a whole day of it again. We are moving to some constant 80 temps in the next day or so. Hopefully we can look forward to sunny days ahead. I think weíll get out and weed spray again this weekend if itís nice.

Jean: I must have missed it. What made them decide to just pull his tooth? Iím glad heíll be feeling better and hopefully enjoyed his eggs and applesauce. I made chili dogs for Jack for diner. I ate one, but it is sitting like a lump in my stomach. I think Iíll have a little sorbet this evening. Kroger has that Private Selection brand and they have this yummy mango sorbet. I refer it to ice cream of any kind, but only have a little because Iíve never found sugar free. Hopefully it wonít be long ad you can return to church. I have found blackberries, but donít buy them because the seeds are big enough to play havoc with me sometimes. They also drive me nuts when they get in my teeth. :lol:

Everyone have a good evening!


Jean 05-12-2020 09:59 PM

“Gma,” Bob had a toothache in January and it was bad enough he went to the dentist Right away, and then the doctor thinking maybe he had an ear infection. The dentist took an x-ray but couldn’t see anything. After a couple days of Tylenol and ibuprofen, it was fine. It happened again right before we went to Maui, same thing. Our dentist recommended a trip to a root canal dentist in Sioux City after we got home. It didn’t bother him at all and the day we were to go to SC, the weather was awful and they saying to stay off the roads so we didn’t go. It happened again and we did go to SC the end of March. That dentist has much more detailed computer x-ray equipment and it showed a crack on the back side of a wisdom tooth. The dentist said a root canal wouldn’t fix it and it wouldn’t get any better so needed to come out. He belongs to a travel group and the surgeon comes here on certain days. :)

ceejay52 05-13-2020 03:39 PM

Jean
Glad DH didn't have to have the root canal and the bad tooth is now gone. Hope it heals soon. Our church voted for not going till June. I'm glad in a way cause I do't get out in public unless I have to.

Gma
We've been having rain too. It was raining earlier this morning but most of the day has been dry. but more rain coming in this afternoon.
I agree with the blackberries. I love them but those small seeds will sometimes play havoc with my digestive tract. I'm satisfied with the blackberry jelly if it is seedless.
---------------------------
I've been doing laundry today and have most of it done. Need to take one load out of the dryer and put in a small load of white in the dryer, then I'm done.
Nephew A text me this morning to see if I could take him to a rehearsal for his son's communion service Sunday. I told him I would if it was not storming.
Fixed a cheeseburger steak this afternoon for lunch and had a salad with that. I'm still pretty full. I'm making a batch of vegetable beef soup for dinner.

ceejay52 05-14-2020 04:46 PM

Nephew called and wanted me to come into town to take him by his office to turn in a paper that was due today. This morning was the first dry day that we've had to mow and the grass has grown. So when I got back I brought out the rider and wouldn't you know I ran out of gas. I put what was left in the can but it wasn't enough. I got home from the gas station and barely had enough time to put up the lawn mower and it started pouring rain. At least I got to mow the big side yard.
The pasture next to the house has cows in it this afternoon. And they are getting wet.
This morning I cleaned the living room and dining room.

Hello to every one.

Jean 05-14-2020 05:30 PM

Good Afternoon! The sun has been shining all day, no wind, and it's warm enough to have the sliding doors open this afternoon. Love this kind of weather! I had money from another employee only gift shop sale so made a trip to the bank, post office, and grocery store this morning. Salons are opening tomorrow as well as restaurants are again open for dining in if they so choose. Some are staying with carry out for awhile longer. Bob offered lunch by the lake so I didn't have to cook. This afternoon I have just puttered and sorted through more "junk" I don't need any more. I found a Lands End receipt from 2015, is that bad or what?! :rolleyes:

Ceejay, Bob is back to normal except for not chewing on that side of his mouth. I think the ice pack lasted all of one hour, yesterday, if that. :lol: I did find blackberries in the store this morning, tiny box and I thought quite expensive. Your sister is so lucky to have you do laundry, cook, clean, and yard work on top of all that! You will have lots of stars in your crown when you get to heaven! I’m sorry about running out of gas in the mower, aggravating.

Nothing exciting for the rest of the day; a much needed haircut tomorrow, and new nails on Saturday. I can't wait! Hope you all are enjoying a terrific Thursday! :wave:

gma22 05-14-2020 07:32 PM

Evening gals! It is mid 80ís here today so I turned on AC about 2 pm. I had it on all last night though. I was pretty sick from dinner through breakfast. Am trying out a new gastro med and figure it hasnít had time to work. I couldnít stand the misery so took a second dose and felt better in a couple hours. This one is a twice a day and it has sodium bicarbonate so weíll see how it does. Terrible to have to take one medicine to counteract the reaction of the first, but thatís whatís happening.

My hair salon is not starting appointments until June 1st and setting them up so that people who had the earliest dates booked when they closed get to go first. Unfortunately, my appt was right before the cruise so itís likely I wonít get an appt until the end of June. I am not going out to eat, get my nails done or anything else until I can get my hair done. Itís a mess. I have about 3 inches of gray from my scalp and with my hair being fine and red it looks like I have bald spots. :lol:

CeeJay: You are like the Energizer bunny, I swear. Glad you were able to finish a section before the rain. I like black raspberry jam or preserves. I grew up eating them fresh as a kid, but you canít find them anymore. Jack eats orange marmalade or grape. I like peach, apricot, red raspberry, strawberry. I rarely eat it though because of the sugar and donít like sugar free.

Jean: I thought you had said something once upon a time about a root canal, but then when you said he had it pulled I thought maybe not. Well, glad itís all fixed for him now. I donít know. I had a pair of sandals from then for about two years and they replaced it free of charge when the thong piece broke. Maybe whatever you bought could be exchanged if necessary. :lol: :lol: Our favorite Chinese place opened today carryout only, but we only do carryout from them so Jackís treating me to Chinese for dinner tomorrow. I made meatloaf, baked beans, and hash brown casserole tonight and boy did it taste good. We havenít had that in quite awhile.

We hot part of our onboard credit for the cruise, but they still owe us $450 so hopefully itíll come through soon. We donít need it because the all access ship tour hasnít come up for booking yet. Itís only for Vicki and Jack as I canít do all the stairs and canít use my scooter for it.

Well, everyone have a good evening.

ceejay52 05-15-2020 09:40 AM

A potent thunderstorm woke me around 3 a.m. this morning. Seemed like it went on and on and more rain is on the way too. Luckily yesterday afternoon after the brief thunderstorm the rain soaked into the ground. And I heard another neighbor out mowing so I got out and finished. The grass didn't clump so I finished the yard. Still need to weed eat. The yard was so long that it looked like I had bush hogged it. I did rake up the very front, the side and back yard.
Nephew A, the one I took to his office yesterday inherited their two cat, Littlefoot and Sarah. Littlefoot started taking up with me first then Sarah. While Sarah was up in my lap Littlefoot hissed at Sarah and almost got into a fight. Didn't realize that female cats did this.
While I was raking in the back yard my neighbor Pat came over and brought some fresh baked banana bread. I had some for dinner.

gma
I turned our a.c. on yesterday as well. It was humid in the house after working outside. Hope you feel better.

Jean and Susan :wave:
We are going to have sissy's grandsons and grand daughter tomorrow night.

Jean 05-16-2020 05:53 PM

Happy Saturday to You! The month is half over and summer activities like our July 4th celebration are being cancelled daily. It's really going to be a quiet summer if the local baseball team doesn't play; haven't heard about high school yet. We are rapidly becoming a COVID 19 hot spot thanks to the packing plants. :mad: Bob just received word that one of the nursing home employees also tested positive. Most likely there is a family member working at one of the the packing plants. We have a mobile testing unit in town this weekend plus a separate one that is going to start testing packing plant employees on Monday. A little late on that one since two plants in Iowa have been shut down plus another one in Sioux City and another in Dakota City, NE, right across the border. Rain is heading our way and should have been here by now. I got my hair cut yesterday and new nails today so feel like a new person! We counted church money this morning; Bob found out one of our largest givers is moving out of town this fall when he retires and another very generous giver just put her husband in the nursing home so cut their monthly contribution in half. I don't anticipate replacing either one any time soon. I wouldn't be surprised if we are still out of the building through June. We are living through a troublesome time that's for sure. :(

“Gma,” originally our local dentist thought Bob would need a root canal and that’s why she sent him to the specialist in Sioux City. Her x-ray didn’t show the crack in the tooth. I hate returning anything I have to pay postage for. I just ordered a summer top and it is cut much lower than I am comfortable with. If my mom were alive she would take it apart and take in the shoulder seams. I am not that talented. Most likely I will see if Amanda might wear it to work as it is kind of dressy, if not it goes in the SOS box. You made me hungry for Chinese! We have decided the carry out is much better than dining in. My favorite, cashew chicken, is never on the buffet. That might just be dinner tomorrow! :T

Ceejay, is there a significance in naming the cat Littlefoot? Interesting name! We had an inside female cat then adopted an outside orphan who had three kittens in our garage. Maggie, the inside cat, was not happy when we invited Momma to move inside. They never got to be buddies just tolerated each other’s space. We would hear hissing every once in awhile :lol: but they never actually fought that we know of. Fresh banana bread, what a nice neighbor!

The washer is finished so on to the next load. Hope you enjoy a good day and stay healthy! :wave:

50% capacity but only outdoor seating. Salons by appointment only and half capacity. YMCA opens Monday but you have to sign up in advance and only 9 in a class. I don't plan on doing anything before July 1.

Donna, sorry about the medicine. No fun!

Jean, glad Bob's tooth trouble is over.

Ceejay, you are such a good woman helping your sister and nephew.

Have a great weekend.b

gma22 05-17-2020 03:47 PM

Good afternoon. Just as Jack was stepping out the door it stating pouring rain. He made an appt online to get his haircut for yesterday, showed up, had to wait in his car until they were ready, had to wear a mask, gets up to the door and she said online appts donít show up at the salon and everyone is furious at them. The franchise owner insists on online so everyone that shows up gets turned away. They have to make a second appt. No wonder people are up in arms about the whole thing when you have dopes like the franchise owner and the stylists take all the grief for it. Anyway, he has an appt at 3.

Jean: I think the Chinese place has new cooks as the order was completely different than previous ones. Itís too bad because thereís nothing close by as the other two went out of business years ago. We never do anything for the 4th as we feel itís too dangerous here. We used to go to the casinos, but after the flooding several years ago they arenít as nice anymore. We just stay home and usually are in bed regular time because Jack has to work the next day. I doubt he even gets Memorial Day off this year as heís had to work the last three city holidays.

Susan: My salon opens in June but with the way theyíre booking I figure I have to put up with bad hair until the end of June.

Everyone have a good afternoon.

ceejay52 05-17-2020 05:27 PM

Some of our business have reopened. Sis and nephew A took the boys shopping and had to wait in line as they were allowing only so many inside.
We had a good family day yesterday. Both nephews were here with kids Nephew A spent the night with his three. and also oldest grand daughter. I might say I'm tired. I enjoyed it. It was fun getting to know baby C. Nephew C helped his mom clean out a flower bed.
Sis went to nephew's church this morning but I didn't.. Needed some time alone. I met nephew C in Willard about 12 miles down the road and he pick up his daughter. She is a joy to be around.
Everyone had a good day.

ceejay52 05-19-2020 11:16 AM

Not much going on. My neighbors must be gone. They have not been outside yesterday.
It's been cloudy and cool this week. Supposed to start warming up this week end.

Jean 05-19-2020 02:33 PM

Good Afternoon! It's another cloudy and gloomy day. :( I made a trip to town this morning to pick up Zowie's birthday picture from the newspaper office, she turns 15 tomorrow. Then I stopped by the Hallmark shop for a couple graduation cards. Bob's hometown is planning their graduation ceremony for July and a shortened edition of prom the same weekend. Graduation here was scheduled for next weekend but we are invited to a drive by celebration. I think we will be invited to the back yard festivities while some will drive by and honk their congratulations. The smaller towns around us have come up with some clever ways to celebrate their graduates so it's been interesting to watch on FB.

Susan, our restaurants are the same 50% capacity. However a good share are still doing the carry out procedure. We have “dined in” a couple times which was nice. Both times there were a few other people in the restaurants also; everyone is tired of being cooped up at home.

”Gma,” how frustrating for Jack trying to get his hair cut! I agree on the Chinese restaurantS using different cooks! Twice we’ve gotten the divided styrofoam carry outs with an egg roll included, and once the traditional looking containers and no egg roll! The dinners were slightly different in contents also but still good. We still haven’t heard anything about summer baseball for Ian, but I am betting on none. It will be a quiet summer!

Ceejay, supposedly our WM has started counting people but I haven’t seen that early in the morning. The last time I was there the Mexicans were still shopping in groups, with over loaded grocery carts and one open checker. That does test one’s patience! It’s nice you enjoy being with the kids, they do have the energy! Please share your warmer weather! My furnace is still running daily!

I have a load of clothes in the washer that should be done so better keep moving. I could easily take a nap, it's that kind of day. Enjoy the rest of your day! :wave:

Jean 05-20-2020 12:24 PM

Good Morning! It's another gloomy day in my neighborhood but no wind and no rain, at least so far. I have dusted and vacuumed the living room and tv area so far this morning plus Ernie's potty box which I scoop every day. The weekenders, across the street, were here last weekend and left a junky van parked on our side of the street close to the neighbor's driveway. I want to call the police and say it's been abandoned but Bob doesn't think I should. It has a different county license plate so how would I know who it belonged to. They all park on both sides of the street even though they have a double garage and driveway; I have parked in front of our house so they can't. I can be kind of ornery. :lol:

Not much newsy from my corner of the world today. I should think about something for lunch since it is about that time. Hope you enjoy a wonderful Wednesday! :wave:

ceejay52 05-20-2020 01:33 PM

Afternoon
I mowed the lawn yesterday afternoon. When I started the neighbors did too.
This afternoon I'm going to weed around the blueberry bushes.
Today I'm using the oven clean to clean this nasty oven. It's going to take a while. The first time I've used one like this.
I'm also doing laundry today. Always something to do here.

Jean
I think you should call the police. The neighbor should be more respectful.

gma22 05-21-2020 11:56 PM

Good evening. I saw Jean on FB and realized I have not been in here in days again. Itís easier when your life actually has you doing different things. I get up eat breakfast, chores, etc, etc. I still have not left the house. I am waiting for a call for a hair appointment. I will not go out looking like this. We are in for days of rain and temps near 90 the rest of the week so itíll be fun. At least weíre finally getting steady warm temps for summertime.

I have ordered Jackís Fatherís Day gifts, got one, have been waiting for nearly three weeks for the other. Of course they charged me for it and itís custom so I just have to wait until it gets here. I bought him a book written by one of the last survivors of Pearl Harbor so at least heíll get that. Whatís on order is a tshirt with his old shipís logo on the front and the air craft carrierís info on the back. He loved the USS Kennedy. He served on it three years.

I fell off the wagon. HSN had a sandal sale and I fell in love with a pair and ordered them. Hey, what can I say they double whammied me. They sent me an email and were on tv when I channel surfed. :lol: At least they were on sale.

We have a house key hanging in the garage in case we get locked out. Itís been there for years since we got locked out and had to break a window to get in. Anyway, Jack left for work a couple days ago and forgot his keys. He thought I was asleep so used the extra key but never put it back. I know why because it hangs on the back wall of the garage and hard to get to if my car is parked in the garage. So. I decided to do something to make it easier. I ordered these magnetic key discs. It has 3M adhesive on one you stick to the wall and then the magnet sticks to it and your key sticks to the magnet. Theyíll be here tomorrow so weíll see how they work.

Jack had to go out tonight and ask the people next door to get their friends to move their car from in front of our garage. He came in and said they now have an auto bodyshop in their garage. That is the third one here on our street. We are mixed zoning so doubt the management can do much. It gets so incredibly noisy here and it goes so late into the night sometimes. They are all renters, but the landlords wonít tell them not to. :mad:

Jean: I asked Jack if WM still had an employee in front and he said yes but she doesnít enforce anything. We have mandatory face masks here but he said half the customers donít wear them. I look forward to going out to eat once I get my darn hair done. Well I glad the kids get a ceremony and such. We have to get going again.

CeeJay: You need your own landscaping company! :lol: Our donut shop here just opened up a week ago and itís been nuts. This shop has been featured on several tv shows, ďThe Best Thing I ever Ate,Ē ďChowdown Countdown,Ē and two or three more I canít think of. Their donuts are very good and always really fresh. If you know who Alton Brown is from food network, itís his favorite place for donuts. :lol:

Well, I need to get to bed. Have a good dat tomorrow and nice weekend.

Jean 05-22-2020 12:15 PM

Good Morning! It's another cool and gloomy day in my neighborhood. Part of the "weekenders" across the street showed up yesterday and the junk van has disappeared. A couple at the other end of the block has a moving truck called "Two Men and a Truck" :lol: at their house. They are moving to Omaha where their daughter lives. The lady helped in the gift shop and I will miss her. I have been to church to count money and the most user unfriendly copy machine decided to not cooperate again today. :mad: It's a good thing there weren't many checks to copy. When the secretary got there she said she had called the repair/salesman and he admitted they have had nothing but trouble with these machines. So either fix it or replace it with something else! Our church was to have a 150th anniversary celebration in September which has now been cancelled. Members of the different planning committees didn't want to get together because of the virus, our new pastor isn't coming until September, etc., so guess it will be 150 years plus 1 next September! I stopped at the coffee shop for a reaspberry lemonade on my way home. :T

Ceejay, I was definitely going to call the police about the junky van if it was here after the long weekend. The problem with the “weekenders” is some live an hour away, one couple comes from Missouri, and there are some with the same local county plates. If they all gather for a long weekend there are cars on both sides of the street, kids on bikes and running around the yard, plus a couple loose dogs. :( I’m glad we are in the back of our house most of the time! Hope your oven is now spic ‘n span clean! :D

”Gma,” I was hacked on FB. :mad: Did you get the supposed video message from me? I wish there was some way to punish the hackers! Right now there seems to be a big FB to-do about face masks. To each his own opinion and I have friends on both sides of that one so keep quiet. I keep one in the car if I need it but after awhile feel like I can’t breathe and need to get my nose out. Besides, my glasses steam up. I’m sure Jack will love his Father’s Day gifts! :yes: Bob gave a talk on his tour in Vietnam to a class at the college. The professor gave him a book on the Vietnam “war” which I came across in one of my sorting endeavors. I feel for you with your renter neighbors! We were just talking about our renting days and how we took care as if we owned, tried to be good neighbors, etc.; definitely a different mind set now. One thing about the salons being closed, everyone was shaggy looking and in the same boat. I would call your salon and beg! ;) It seems like every time I turn on the Food Network it is the Diners, Dives, and Drive-ins or whatever it’s called. I can’t stand that goofus and turn it off!

Now I need to get busy! Hope you all enjoy a fantastic Friday! :wave:

ceejay52 05-24-2020 09:08 PM

Jean
The oven is not spic and span. It's been awhile since sis cleaned it. But it is better and I'll do it again very soon. I hate to bake in dirty ovens.

----------------------------
It doesn't feel like Sunday any more. We have a committee that is searching for a new pastor. Some churches have gone back to having services but I'm a bit leery.
We had our gathering yesterday and it was nice. Nephew A had his kids out here. His wife wants them to have supervision and I can't blame her on that. We baby sat with baby O Friday night and the I kept her while sis and nephew went to pick up the kiddo's. She was a lot of fun.
This is about it for me.

QuilterInVA 05-25-2020 10:29 AM

Good mourning ladies. 62% and cloudy.

Same old stuff happening here...chores, walk, lunch, read and quilt, dinner. Excitement last Monday because I had a doctor's appointment. New rescue inhalers coming this week. Wednesday I have dentist's appointment for a fitting in my new partial. That was supposed to happen March 10.

Jean, our church is having one mass beginning Saturday. Only 100 people, a

Donna, my hair is terrible too. My bangs are in my eyes so I tied them back with a piece of ribbon. We only have Krispy Kreeme and Dunkin Donuts here. I haven't had them for years.

Jean, renters can be a real headache! Masks should be washed every time you wear them. Our church is having one Mass beginning on Saturday at 5:30. Everyone over 3 must wear a mask. Limit of 100. Everyone over 65 is to stay home.
Livestreaming Sunday mass.

Ceejay, I have a self cleaning oven. I won't be without one. It is nice you have family near you.

Have a great day!

Jean 05-25-2020 12:07 PM

Good Morning! We have had the strangest weather this weekend! Saturday was supposed to be rainy and it turned out to be a beautiful sunny day. I think everyone who owned a boat was on the lake, except us. We got up to heavy rain, wind, and hail Sunday morning. It didn’t last long but we got almost an inch of rain. Then the sun was in and out all day. We had a drive-by graduation in the afternoon and the sun did shine for that hour. It is supposed to rain again today but the sun is peeking out right now. Beth wanted to come over and fish with her dad but in trying to second guess the weather she gave up. I haven’t accomplished much over the long weekend. I bought ham loaf meat to fix in case Beth did come; I am so disgusted because it has no taste to it. Bob’s mom used a recipe of ground pork and ham; when I have tried to special order that, the meat man tells me that is exactly how they mix their ham loaf. Well, it doesn’t taste the same and they sprinkle red “something” on top of their mix. :mad: I miss a good meat market!

Ceejay, I try to wipe up oven spatters as soon as they happen. I don’t like dirty ovens either and Bob says mine looks like it’s never been used. :rolleyes: I haven’t heard if we will be back in the church building in June or not. The Sioux City church we watch online will require masks; we really wanted to go to their Easter service but I don’t think I can stand a mask for that long. The babies are at a fun age and I’m glad you get to enjoy them.

Susan, we still haven’t heard the “official” numbers from the local virus testing. I would be more interested in the packing plants testing than the general public. :yes: It was impressive to see the helicopter pick up the tests to take to the University lab. A doctor from our clinic was on ER duty over the weekend and posted on FB that the ER had been extra busy treating COVID cases. The Sioux City hospitals won’t take any more patients from here and our local hospital is using all the virus designated rooms. I have mixed feelings on the masks, I find it interesting that people wear them in the car when they are the only person in the car. Are you walking outside now?

“Gma,” What are you doing today? Hope you have sunshine! :flow1:

I have a load of towels that should be ready for the dryer. Also need to get the vacuum out and chase the dust/fur hunks. Have a marvelous Monday and enjoy! :wave:

ceejay52 05-25-2020 09:46 PM

It's been a busy day. I suggested a walk this morning and sis was all for it. We went down to the park which is very close.
Around 10.30 this morning I got on the rider and started mowing. I was trying to beat the rain. Sis did the push mowing. And after I did the weed eating. I was relaxing and all of a sudden a cloud burst opened and poured. Guess that will teach me to put up the mowers and other garden things.
I'm a tired woman

-------------------------
Jean
Littlefoot come from a children's movie I think but not sure which one.


Hello's to Susan and GMA

Jean 05-26-2020 12:56 PM

Good Morning! It's another CRAPPY, seriously raining day in my neighborhood. :( Ok, enough about the weather! I needed bread and milk so made a quick early trip to the store. More people were not wearing masks than were, and we are supposed to be a hot spot right now. I am in the process of cleaning the coffee maker so the house smells like a pickle. :lol: While I was waiting for that to do its job I refilled a months worth of meds for both of us. Glad that is done, not my favorite job. :no:

Ceejay, I wish I had someone to walk with! You are lucky to walk with your sister. :yes: Years ago my backyard neighbor and I would meet at the corner and walk together just about every day. She moved away and that ended my walking commitment. Bob walks too fast for me to keep up so that’s no fun either. Every neighbor around us mowed at various times, in between the rain showers, over the weekend. Bob started, then it started to sprinkle so put the mower away. I think we got a dozen drops that time and it quit, so he got the mower back out and finished. Everyone’s grass is growing fast!

I have a load of towels that should be done drying, ready to fold, and put away so better keep moving. Hope you all enjoy a terrific Tuesday! :wave:

ceejay52 05-27-2020 10:54 AM

Morning
I've had my shower. My used to be neighbor called and told me that my nephew was getting in the back of an ambulance. I knew he'd been having some blood sugar problems and didn't think to much about it. I called his mom and from her I found out that he's been drinking again. I've been so proud of him. But it seems like he can't go for more than 3 months. I'm sad.
We've had a little rain shower so my little tad of yard work will have to be later on this afternoon.

I'm not sure if I'm going to keep ordering my med's or start using a local pharmacy.

Hello's to gma and Susan

Good Morning! I am watching the electric company install a new pole across the street. I hope it has a light on it because our long block is very dark. The weekender's house has a yard light that used to automatically come on when it got dark. It has worked off and on since they bought the house a few years ago; I'm not sure why he doesn't either replace it or fix it. Anyhow a light in the middle of the block would be nice! So far there is no sunshine but it's not raining either.

Ceejay, I hope your nephew will be back home soon. I’m so sorry he has been drinking again. :( Our mail delivery is so irregular I would hate to trust them to deliver our meds. Our Walgreens pharmacy is easy with a drive up window.

I need to think about lunch as it is about that time. Enjoy the rest of a wonderful Wednesday and do something nice for yourself! :wave:

I'm fixing lunch as soon as the oven heats up to the right temperature. I've used Walgreen's for years until my insurance company insisted that I use their mail delivery. Thinking about going back to Walgreens.
Me too on nephew's account.
Made an appointment to get the oil changed for next Monday which is the earliest I could get.
My other nephew C with the 14 month old is looking for a new sitter for her. I would love keep her but am to far out to go get her and bring her back here. I don't want to live with nephew A because of the circumstances plus the bad experience I've had. But his location would be ideal for that.

I have got to get back to a schedule, etc. I donít get in here then days later realize it. My cleaning schedule is off, havenít been away from the house, etc. Good news is I have a hair appt tomorrow. We have to wait in our car, get our temp taken, wear a mask and she can only have 25% occupancy, but thank you Jesus I can look human again. I can also make a waxing appt and go to the nail salon. I think we are going back to going out for our groceries in a couple weeks and going out to eat.

The city came out today saying everyone who works for the city loses 30% of their vacation days immediately and theyíll be paid for them instead. Good thing weíre not cruising this year or Iíd be pitching a fit. Our mayor is a total dummy. The guys at the plant are livid over it. Weíll just pay on the cruise with it. :lol:

Jean: I did get a video, but didnít open it. I quit opening them because so many people were getting hacked from them. When we moved into the condo from across town we used two men and a truck. They did a great job. One of the neighbors does something that blows our electricity. Their stupid auto bodyshops in their garages. I am always lagging behind Jack. He has really long legs so his strides are long.

CeeJay: Bummer! I know you all thought he was coming along so well. Someone needs to figure out what his trigger is to help him stop it. His sponsor if he uses him. We use Express Scripts unless itís a short term prescription like one time, etc. We pay $10 for 90 days generic and $29 for brand name 90 days with Express Scripts. Walgreens or other allowable pharmacies only will fill 30 days. Hope you got your yard work done.

Susan: My oven is self cleaning or steam cleaning. I only do it winter months because it makes the kitchen so hot. I have to get eye appt, mammogram that never got rescheduled, dr appt, all by fall. I should go to dr in July but I am waiting until Sept. It is a large practice, lots of medicaid and frankly theyíre pretty careless and no one makes them follow the rules.

Everyone have a good evening.

Good Afternoon! The sun is shining and the wind is blowing. I spent the morning sorting through a closet and wondering where all the stuff came from. I need to practice the idea of pitching something if I buy something new. A teacher friend is asking for furniture and "extras" to help a new teacher set up an apartment. I am making a list! I fixed tacos for lunch, dishwasher is full so now have a counter full of dishes to wash. "My" black fuzzy furball kitten/cat has at least two new babies in the cat/bird house! She takes off with her mom and sister but as soon as I open the door she comes running back.

Ceejay, have you considered moving back to your house and telling the nephew he has to move out? I can’t imagine the hopeless feelings he must deal with. That is so sad. I know you would enjoy babysitting! :)

”Gma,” Bob had a dentist appointment this morning and they called him yesterday with all the required questions. Then today he was to call from the car and the dentist would come to the car to evaluate him and take his temperature. She was double masked, gloves, long lab type coat, and face shield. When he got inside there were plastic sheets over all the door ways, something about the water spray and aerosol (?) spreading germs. Our county virus numbers jumped to over 600, still not counting the €^~ß*# packing plants. :mad: Hope your hair appointment was on schedule and you are beautiful once more. Jack loves you any way you look! I don’t understand why city employees lose vacation days. Are they short handed or second guessing the virus? I was surprised at your Walgreens, we both get 90 days worth or meds.

I guess the maid is not going to do the dishes, must be my turn. :rolleyes: I better get busy. Enjoy the rest of your day! :wave:

Happy Friday! The sun is shining and the wind is blowing again today. I am keeping watch over the cat/bird house. Momma cat moved one of her babies to underneath the enclosed deck behind us but has not come back for the second baby. Neighbor next door is mowing so wonder if that is why she hasn't returned. The hummingbirds are coming again this morning and several orioles are fighting over their feeder. They don't share very well. The robin has been here several times for cat food. Either it has been too cold for worms or we don't have any for him. :lol: We are going to Sioux City for lunch and to look at cemetery plots later. Our pork plant has shut down indefinitely and it's way past time! Wish the turkey plant would close too. There are over 700 confirmed positive virus cases in the county. :eek: Not all are Tyson employees but most are.

Hope you enjoy a nice day, May is almost ready for the history book! :wave:
