I hope he continues to improve, I can't wait to see him tomorrow.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers, it means so much to me!
so glad he is doing better! Some of us just need a little more time to recover than others. His strength will return and before long all this will be forgotten. ((((HUGS))) to you and your whole family continues in my prayers.

When I picked her up from work last night she was crying because she had just dropped her Iphone and shattered the glass. Grrrrr. Her sister just did the same thing a couple of weeks ago. At least I know where to go to have it fixed. I would like to drop it off this morning and get that over with. I also need to food shop and get to the rehab center to visit my father.
Oh and today is my 23rd wedding anniversary.We were just a couple of kids when we got together, can't believe how fast the time flies by. My hubby had to go in to work today, but I'm hoping we can at least find the time to go out to dinner tonight.
Have a great day!!!

Happy Anniversary! Enjoy and have some fun....

I awoke to the sound of ladders being put up against the side of my house this morning. We had signed a contract for a contractor to remove and put a new crown on the top of my fireplace about a month ago and they didn't call to say they would be here this morning, glad I decided to be here this morning....

We decided to put our house of 14 years up for sale! So, we have had contractors here for the past two weeks working on the back deck and addition, we are having new granite countertops installed, making sure the fireplace is in tip top shape and we are landscaping our yard as well (IE, my brother and his company). So as they say, we are turning and burning....

We are looking for a house as well, so we are doing that while also looking to sell my grandfathers house to boot and we will have him move in with us so that we (I) can continue to take care of his needs...

As a quote in Frosty the Snowman, "Busy, Busy, Busy...." lol....

Today, Lisa is working and so I'm going to push the mending knee a bit and try to start packing some things up in the garage and , them to storage myself. Yes, I foresee an Aleeve later on ha-ha...

I hope everyone has a glorious day today, enjoy, relax and have fun!!!!
Good luck with everything today!!
Don't push yourself too hard

Exciting times ahead, my friend!!

We didn't even go anywhere in the woods, but she did go near the edge.

That's good that you have her on something and that you also noticed it as well because it could have gotten in the house and possibly jumped on you or the hubby...
I heard that they are going to be real bad this year especially in the areas like here where the weather was not so cold. You have to especially careful with those little deer ticks, I got bit by one on my side about 10 years ago and I went to the docs to have it checked out and blood work done to check for Lyme disease; luckily, tested negative but the doc gave me antibiotics to take anyhow.

And the deer, their everywheres now, so every time I get in the woods or high grass, I'm checking myself just to make sure....
