If you're reading from the latest post down (as I usually do thereby confusing myself), I just posted a long rant (about Ray and his lack of medical care which has put him back in hospital once again). There is also a cute little day after Easter cartoon just below that.
Welcome to Kendra Lynn from Michigan who has two cute little girls.
And also to Lion Mom, a SAHM from Texas who works harder than anyone should have to and does it by choice. I first noticed her at Building the Bigger Family and I've been lurking with an occasional comment ever since. She's amazing.
Today has been a little nuts. On my first sleep in morning (kids on vacation), my phone rang at 6:30 a.m. My younger son, Tim, had spent the weekend at his brother's house and when my dil tried to start her car to take them both to work at Barnes & Noble, absolutely nothing happened. Dead battery. I managed to wake up by the time I got there - no luck with the car so I drove both of them to work. Came back home, started laundry, and put away four baskets of clean clothes that I had let pile up over the weekend (well maybe a little longer). I hope they have purchased a battery.
Took Ray to doctor who decided to admit him to hospital as soon as they had an available bed. He went in around 4 this afternoon (see rant below).
We managed to eat our way through most of yesterday's leftovers and I have the ham bone cooking along with navy beans and an onion for tomorrow. My vampire Rochelle just came in to tell me the stove was on. Good thing - the beans needed more water. She asked for tuna glop - told her later this week. Kids are easily pleased - tuna glop is a no brainer and they love it. I just reminded her it's 11:30 (almost) and bedtime. Hug and kiss and off she went one more time.
My Giants managed to blow a 7-0 lead, fell behind 9-7, and still managed to win a game they didn't deserve. They do that to me every season.
I have a feeling I may be up for a while so I started yet more laundry. Where does it come from? My dryer balls are behaving nicely - they've settled in and now consider my dryer their home. No runaways lately. I may try to do a little reading - sometimes that makes me sleepy.
I'm listening to the Triumphal March from Aida. Just put on a long playlist - all opera but mixed so I don't know what will be coming up next.
On my list of weird things I should have added that I'm equally fond of Conway Twitty and Kiri te Kanawa. (and ABBA and Peter Paul and Mary and baroque). Just depends on my mood at the time. Tonight is opera night at the homestead.
Take care everyone. I know some of you are traveling so safe journey and return.
