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.

It has rained all night and all day. Not a storm just constant rain. I have a chill from it all. Yet Steve is warm. Makes it hard to regulate house temperature.
The poison ivy is healing and the face is not peeling from the sun burn. All seems to be going well. That's why I am feeling restless. I keep thinking something is about to happen.
I have been transplanting my little zinnia plantlets that I started from seeds. They are so cute and I sure hope they live to be flowers.
I'm reading a John Irving book, A Prayer for Owen Meany. It's pretty good as far as a memory of childhood goes. It just is so hard to keep interested. Being a girl and having girl memories makes it hard to reconcile boy memories to my girl memories.
I am looking forward to seeing my nephew and niece for a baby shower next week end. The 19th. I haven't received and invitation yet, so I don't have time or place yet. I have already bought the little guy a gift.
My mine is getting as boring as this post. Later!

10 things

1. I've read all my latest books and haven't found anything interesting at garages sales lately.
2. The weather has turned cool. A break from all the heat. Of course my water exercises start tomorrow and it will be cool for the oldies.
3. Stomach still is queasy. I am thinking it's on of my meds. I am going to call the doc and see if I can not take it for a couple of days.
4. Daughter is on cross country trip. Only contact is through a web site. Hope all is well. Moms and especially her dad worry.
5. The poison ivy on my arm is seeping and I hate it. The calamine lotion is helping keep the itch down.
6. Food is still an issue. I can't decide what to eat. It all sounds UGH to me. Even my favorites.
7. All my TV shows are over. I will probably start on movies I have inherited.
8. I think I want to go somewhere. I just want to get away for awhile. It seems I should take a vacation. I can't even remember when we went on vacation. Now I remember. Florida 2 years ago.
9. I want to get rid of so much stuff. I hate the computer room and the kids toys on the porch.
10. I feel like going back to bed and staying there.
