I have been trying out other blog sites. Wordpress is not working for me. It is too complicated. Now I see Blogger is getting more complicated. It took me forever to get this far here.
Technology is getting away from me. Maybe I am not suppose to blog. I have always kept a journal of sorts and thought this would be a better way to keep track of my thoughts and memories.
I think I may just go to Google Docs and use that as a journal. So far, since Xanga died I have been floundering. I have a tweeter, facebook, google+, wordpress, and blogger. I use the facebook to see photos of family and friends and use as email to the daughters. All the rest are just waiting for me to figure it out. I think maybe I am trying too many places at once. I will try to focus on just one. I have no followers and really don't want to combine my FB with any blog. I would rather like to meet new people with similar interests and of course some family.
Today starts my tai chi classes. I had 10 people last year start and ended up with 6. I know one will be back but not able to make the first week. I doubt if I will have any new people this year. That's fine because we have formed a good group. There is always one exception it seems and we do have one. The one thing is she is not always there so it's not to bad of a situation. Keeping a positive outlook is hard for some and it is up to me to set a positive example.
Enough for one morning. Off for more coffee and work cross word puzzles.

wordpress blog

So I am now going to try to see if I like it. I have written two posts and the first one did not post. The second one is posted. I hope one of these works. So far I have one follower here; Tracy! and I am following Jeff on wordpress.
Things should be looking up soon. I sure hope I feel comfortable at one of these.

It's been awhile since I've blogged here. It's actually been awhile since I've done any blogging at all. I see where my Xanga blog will soon be going by the way side and all my posts may be lost. That is 6 years of stories, pictures, venting, and ramblings.

Today was to be the first day of water aerobics. The temperature was only 60 so no class. I did however explain some of the rules and disclaimers to those who showed up. On Wed. I will have to do the same thing. If the weather gets better I will hold the class.
We will be having the older grands one day a week this summer. Maybe Tues or Thurs. They still haven't had an Oma/Poppie day to spend their Christmas money. Gabe has ask the last few times when we could go it. I need to make arrangements to spend that special time with each of them.

Since I have an ipad I have been using it more than the laptop. I do however start the day here on the laptop to do general email checking and banking. Now spouse has taken to using the ipad to check the stock market everyday.
I don't know if I will get any viewers here but I guess that's OK. I only had a few left on xanga. So many have moved to FB and other platforms. Some are here so maybe I will subscribe when I see an old familiar name.

It has been a long time since I've been here. I have so many other things to do but I am looking for a site to express myself privately. I will try here again.

It will be an early morning tomorrow. The daughter has a 7:15AM Mammogram appt. She is bring over grands to spend the day with us. It will be a beautiful pool day. I have to hold water exercises from 10:30-11:30 AM then the kids can swim. We will also go to the park for lunch.

I'm sitting here with a queasy stomach again. I sure wish this stuff would go away.

My hanging plants took a beating from all the storms earlier and now they look pathetic.

The profusion zinnia seeds have turned into plantings and I have to transplant them. It's going to be over 90 degrees so it will have to wait.

New summer programs on the TV do NOT look promising.

Middle daughter is on the return route from trip across country. Still worrying, of course.

Haven't heard from youngest daughter in a long time. I wonder if she will call her dad today? It is Father's Day. ???? Will any of them???

And the list goes on.

I walked 3.25 miles this morning and have gone to Staples and Aldi's and Walgreens. Now I have to go to the pool and do a water test and kick back for a couple of hours. Sounds like fun !

This is my worry week for the middle daughter. She will be coming across Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, and Minnesota before she meets another web friend. That means hotels/motels and total strangers. Those are less populated states and the weather is usually cooler than the places she has been so far. I hope Maude the 96 Chevy Cavalier holds up among the other worries.

I have the movie Alice in Wonderland with Johnny Depp to watch. It's Jane's so there's no hurry to watch it. I will watch it when TV sucks one night this week. Ok any night this week.

Off to get swim suit on and book to read and nail polish to do nails.

Mom Worries of the Senior Kind

I've been following Fillup Munkee across the country. He is my daughter's hand puppet. She is making videos of all the web friends she has made since being on the internet blog world. As her mom I of course worry about all kinds of things. Her dad worries even more. His favorite saying this past week has been that girl ( she is actually a woman by now) will be the death of me until she gets back home. I sure hope that's not true for either of them. Although sometimes I feel like putting him out of his misery so I would be out of mine for listening to him.

The rain has been so on going I haven't been able to have but one water exercise class. It has also made little league baseball games and softball games last twice as long as normal. Today there are no games and the family plans a trip to a local lake for just fun and relaxation.

I am getting the urge to paint. I think I may get out the water colors.
