A long day on the road again but it is worth it to me.

Saturday, April 19, 2014

DH and I had to take our Grand daughter back to her Dad, he met us in New Hampshire. He drives about the same time as we do. Today we were able to go fast because the rural rods are not busy. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Before I left our GD asked me to hem her jeans I had bought her so I did but the sewing machines are all in a very small space and as I was literally climbing over them I wrenched my knee. It has hurt all day but now I am sitting it is really painful and so I have taking Ibuprofen. emoticon emoticon

We had a nice visit with her. She is not doing well with the situation so I and DH bought her clothes rather than Easter Candy. She and her cousin were really bonding and they sure did have a good time. emoticon emoticon emoticon
I am hoping as soon as school lets out I really want her to stay with us for the vacation. It depends on how well she is when the time comes. emoticon emoticon emoticon

The time for me is to get to bed. Thanks for caring Pat in Maine.
emoticon emoticon
I have not read any e-mails

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon .
To all who reads this do HAVE A WONDERFUL HAPPY EASTER. emoticon

PAT IN MAINE.

    Oh, no! Take care of that knee!! You will be very frustrated if you can't walk!! So glad Tegan got to spend time with all of you! You make it a secure place for her and having her cousin there was a bonus for her! Hopefully, she can spend at least some of vacation with you. It would give her dad a break, too.
I hope you, Fred and your family have a wonderful Easter!! Isn't it nice to have at least some of them with you? All of my kids are coming today so it will be fairly chaotic!! emoticon

Spark and I are very slow tonight.

Friday, April 18, 2014

DH and I will be taking our granddaughter back to NY state.
I will miss her but she has to get ready to go back to school. I had hoped we would be able to keep her till Easter but alas it will not work.

Tomorrow we will probably drive o Montpelier Vermont a much further drive but our son has a lot of work for his job and he needs to catch up.

He is under a lot of pressure right now. At first we thought our granddaughter would not be able to come but she did an d we had a great time so despite being shorter than planned we thoroughly appreciated it worked out well . Off to bed. Pat in Maine.

I think the shopping trip made us all sick.

Thursday, April 17, 2014

We had a really nice shopping trip but as soon as we got home first the youngest was pale and shivering. I assumed it was because she is more used to a warmer climate. After lunch at home older daughter went to her room and slept for 4 hours.

At 11pm she was complaining about a really bad head ache. I gave her a headache pill and hopefully we will all sleep.

Even I have a very sore throat.
All except our son he is working the night shift in the casino.
Needless to say I am off to bed.

I began to Spark about 9 pm. I have over 225 Spark points I spun 2 -50's on the team flags. I expected to have about 75.

I have to alter three suit coats for our son so it will be a busy day tomorrow, HUGS Pat in Maine.

EVERYONE WENT TO BED LATE INCLUDING ME!

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

I rarely sleep well without DH so I gave up my bed to Tegan and I slept in my recliner. I always sleep well there, Our other younger Grand is having a coughing dry throat problem but we think it is dry air.

DH waited till it was light to leave the hospital but he had a frozen truck. We took the snow scraper out of the truck and forgot to go to get it. DH had to ask the Technician to let him use his but he came back empty handed too. Never take out you scraper ever in Maine that is my motto.

Today DH and eye were at the eye Drs. The technicians seemed to think he was seeing better but the Dr. dismissed it. It was a disappointment.

Now we are off to bed, Will try to do better tomorrow . Pat in Maine.

Not too inspired tonight.

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

DH has gone for his sleep study overnight. The rain is really pouring down as I am trying to concentrate, alas I find I am not thinking straight.
It was a really long day, I took the girls to the beauty school to have my hair washed and our eldest grand daughter wanted a hair cut. The youngest one just wanted to have her hair washed too so we took off and left DH on his own. I am certain he will be happy on his own for a while, with no women in the house and our son is out too.

The beauty school said a 45 minute wait time. I went to hang my coat and they called my name. The girls were still waiting. I saw them go in to the studio not long later so it was looking good.
I had my hair shampooed in 20 minutes, Youngest DGD was about half an hour but Our eldest was TWO HOURS. The haircut she wanted was a bob at the back and long sides. The student had never cut that way but they are here to learn so we watched and so did the instructor. It came out really nice and the girls were happy.
They wanted to go to McDonalds and they had chicken while I ordered side salad and just the fish filet NO BUN, NO CHEESE, NO TARTAR.

We went outdoors and the rain poured down we all got soaked just running over the parking lot.
When I got home DH had to fill a survey and I had to tell them about how he sleeps.
All in all the day was just too short. Our son and DIL had to go to Freeport to buy suits for his job and they were gone most of the day. I had no problem with that they have not had time together for a very long time. They have lots to talk about and look around to decide where they will look for houses and more importantly schools.

Now it is midnight and I have to go to bed.
