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!!!!
What a fun way to wake up.
Good luck selling your house.

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....
Yes, I have a feeling it will be bad too.

It wasn't even 60 degrees out yesterday when we went, and although we were near the woods, we were only walking in the street & grassy areas near home :/

You be careful, too!!

Off to the church this morning to meet our possible new pastor and his wife.
This is a meet and greet type morning where everyone who is heading up a ministry in the church will get a chance to talk to them about it. I head up operation Christmas child (shoe box gifts for children around the world in need)
So I have my Christmas tree earrings on and ready to go!

Good morning,

Rain, rain go away...

Baseball practice was canceled, and I guess we are suppose to have some doozies of thunderstorms come through this afternoon.

Just going to hang around this morning and then head out later to get all the plants for my wife for Mother's day.


Have a great day!!!

Hey all! Busy week! A quick update on my mom. The day she got home from the hospital she felt terrible from the lack of sleep and nausea but the next day she felt so awesome she was trying to do chores around the house, laundry, changing the sheets on her bed and more in her wheelchair when she was suppose to stay in bed with her leg elevated! She has one of those external fixators on her leg, a big bulky thing she has to deal with for 4-6 weeks. There is NO REASON for her to do chores or cook! The whole time I was growing up my dad always shared that responsibility and NEVER expected my mom to do all that. My dad seems to love waiting on her too! She was doing all this while my dad and I were out running errands for her so we were not aware that she was misbehaving, she's a rebel! Ha ha. We got a call from her and she was bleeding and swelling at the surgery site. My dad rushed home, called the doctor and she was told to get to bed! They told her to stay there but my mom just cannot be still! She is good now. She told me she doesn't like ordering my dad around. I convinced her that he likes waiting on her. He has always been that kind of husband anyway, he LOVES doing things for her. I know what I witnessed with my mom and dad growing up, nothing but love! That is why they have been married for nearly 50 years! I also told her to call Wayne and I anytime and we will be right over if she needed us.

I am very behind on the forums. I hope I haven't missed any big news. We got a lot to do today so I will try to catch up on here sometime.

Thanks again for all your thoughts and prayers! My mom thanks you too!
