I started my vacation.
As many of you know we had my son’s birthday celebration on July 4th. Then Tuesday and Wednesday, I kept littlest G-baby who is a little over 10 months. We had some bonding time, but I must admit I was exhausted mainly because I didn’t take my eye off him and because he’s got more energy than a boat load of monkeys. I’m just saying it.
Out of all the toys I had, I think his favorite toy at my house was…a bowl. The other favorite toy was a large plastic soup ladle. He hit me (ok tapped me) once with it, but I didn’t hold a grudge. And he might have giggled when I said OWWW! So that may have caused the second tap.
If he were any cuter it would have to be against the law.
There is sadness in my world. He had to start a new babysitter a couple of weeks ago and the gal takes her vacation around the 4th. His great grandmother (my Daughter-In-law’s grandmother) has been the caretaker over all four of their children from nearly birth until preschool age and his as well. But, we found out recently that she has terminal cancer. Her family has been told there is nothing that can be done.
How can this be? She always looks so healthy. She’s had energy to take care of my four grands plus a few others. Our family is devastated. Please, if you pray—PRAY for her pain to be less. And for her family who are hurting too.
I am so sad over this news.
It’s a 100+ degrees here. That’s all I’m saying about that, except sweat does not become me. What a horrible year for weather here in MO.
I went to the doctor last week for illness. The nurse practitioner put me on an antibiotic and Prednisone. The Pred is doing funny things to me (of course). I had to leave church early yesterday because of dizziness. I had planned to go see my DIL’s grandmother, but came home instead. This morning I woke up to my bed spinning. Call me Dorothy! I called the NP and she said to stop taking the Pred. Is a medication supposed to kill you before it cures you?The Ruralhood
If you’re interested, I finally posted another post on the Ruralhood Blog titled The Right of Passage. It’s about something everyone may need at this time of year, Deodorant. Click on the Ruralhood photo in the sidebar and you'll magically go there. But, before that...
What's the temperature where you are? And if it's a cool 85 degrees or lower may I move in?
