So they are going to do an echo cardiogram on her tomorrow to see if there is something going on. My mom and other sister both have murmur's so we are hoping that's all it is.
She is definitely a trooper! Bless her heart.

Praying that the cardiogram goes well tomorrow, and that she gets some good results. Sending hugs.

My wife called me from work and said she is feeling rotten, and planning to miss work tomorrow. Myself, my sinuses are absolutely killing me, my eyes are watering because of the pain, and I keep getting a bloody nose, so I must have yet another sinus infection. So I have put out the quarantine sign to keep people out.
I'm sending the Family-Sized Package to you:

Mid-80' s as cool temps? I would still be melting faster than Frosty in a greenhouse there. Anything above 72 is too warm for me.

I've been working on it off and on for years now, and hope to get it organized this summer. Any one else into it? If so, what do you use to organize your information (computer programs, etc.).
I have never done it, but both sides of family are very well traced. My father's side has had a family reunion annually for well over 100 years. I am a long way off related to L.L. Bean, the retailer, too bad I am not more closely related. My grandfather on my mother's side was able to trace my family history all the way back to Alaric I in century 300-400 France. I don't know how he did it, but he passed away nearly 20 years ago, so he was able to do it with no internet. He was the smartest person I ever met though.
Good luck with your research.

I'm in Texas and yes, the mid 80's are heaven here! As soon as late June hits we stay right near 100 and up! Ugh!

Gabulldawg and I have had conversation that now we find those hot temps a blessing because it puts us in the Christmas spirit sooner longing for cooler days. I must think positive about the heat somehow and Christmas is the best medicine for positive thinking!!!

home from work, supper cooking, TV on, now I think I need to turn up the heat, it is chilly in here.
Dancing with the stars is on again tonight, other than that I am really not doing anything tonight.

Well I broke down and turned on the A/C. I figured I better make sure it's running okay before we see those 90 degree temps tomorrow.
