I am so happy that this week is over and a new one is up and coming!! I am praying that it will be a better week than this past week. It was a stressful week but it is where I am now. This is the new season of my life and I have to learn to understand it!!
Last week started out with my Dad going to have surgery. I went down to Tuscola to be there for them. The night before the surgery Dad just went someplace else in his mind!! Mother had been trying to make him sleep but it was not working. I finally got in on the fun and finally about 90 minutes to 2 hours and everyone was asleep!! It was a very bad night!! I hope that I am wrong!! I think that dad is getting alzheimers!! He keeps saying that he does not want it. I so hope that he does not have it. Mother is trying her best to care for him. She is amazing!! I don't know how long I could keep doing that if it were me. Incidentally, we did cancel the operation! He does not need that now!!
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE:
Becky bought the new electronic monopoly!! We had great fun!! They have really upgraded it with new properties; a debit and credit card that you slide; you only work with millions and thousands of dollars; when you go past GO it is 2 Million now...Guess this is because of inflation..Ya think?
It was a lot of fun!! Even the tokens that you pass around the board are new and different!!
This last Friday the 3rd we had our 1st snow...BIG one too. The kids had never seen snow fall so it was a wonderful day for them. We adults were just thinking about cleaning off the car and trying to stand up!! Well, guess that was me wondering about standing up. I do not seem to do that very well anymore. With this snow I was really worried about fallling!! I just DO NOT need to fall again!!
I thought this was a great picture of Garrett...very happy with his 1st snow!! They played and played.
Back in the Fall when we were all going to garage sales, Becky found this nice Craftsman Snow blower. She picked it up for $75.00...boy were we happy to have it!! Look at it throw that silly snow!! It was very cold...and still is!!
This is the McCoys tree this year...They collect nut crackers. They have several of them now. I love the fireplace. Keeps us warm here!!
The guys are working on our apt again this afternoon. We now have the surround walls for our shower. They are trying to get that in too!! Soon we can paint. Mike keeps thinking that we will get there by Christmas but well I hope so..i hope that he is right!!
We attended our granddaughter's performace last night!! She sang in the madrigals that her school presents!! It was very good. With all of this snow we were afraid that we could not go but we did get to go! I did not take pictures which was bad for this grandma to have done!! I was so busy watching and enjoying it all. We had a great meal. So glad that we had the opportunity to go. Katie is a Senior this year!! She is having the time of her life. I love seeing her have so much fun!! Senior year should be like this...fun and hope for the future!!
The kids are out sledding this afternoon. There is a big hill that they go too. These Southern raised kids are enjoying the snow. I have a roast on in the crock pot. That is my contribution for the day!! Smile.
Have a Blessed day!!
Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear.
