Re: July's Summertime Chat


Finished the packages yesterday, after doing more or less nothing on Saturday. I did talk to my sis and my Dad and arranged for a few days with them soon. Very much looking forward to that.

I will try out the new overland buslines for traveling, they are cheap and don't take much longer than the train.

Also had a nice BBQ party yesterday, my ex-husband invited me and several friends, some of them mutual. It was more fun than I expected.

Today, I'm tired. Still a hot day, and summer is to continue for a while. I like that.

HI DI HO AND GOOD DAY MY FRIENDS!

We had a good weekend. Hubby and I got that dead tree cut down at Mom and Dad's with only minor scrapes! emoticon Then we fixed an irrigation pipe going to Dad's garden that the heat had made bow up out of the ground and made two dump runs to get rid of the tree. Added an hand held shower want to Dad's shower so he can sit and [sign in to see URL] picked my FIRST tomato out of our garden. Sunday we went to see Dad, he was in good spirits...(hoping after he sees his doctor tomorrow, and gets x-rays, the doc might send him home by weeks end.)...but he ate a KFC chicken [sign in to see URL] a HOMEGROWN tomato! emoticon And Dad and I beat, Mom and Roger in pairs Dominoes. emoticon Today washing up clothes and bedding, the the city inspector may stop by to check on the [sign in to see URL] they had to pull a permit to install it.. Tomorrow morning I get another shot of cortisone in my [sign in to see URL] it's a waiting game to see if they will release DAD. Keeping fingers crossed. It means more work for Mom and Me. But he sure misses home and we miss him. He's been gone since June 4th... [sign in to see URL]'ll be around today as the laundry gets [sign in to see URL] A GREAT DAY!

FIRLE...sounds like you had a very nice and productive weekend! emoticon

Re: July's Summertime Chat


Things are starting to get insane...

I'm paving the way to be part of another radio show, possibly as host. Which means I have to get Audacity up and running and record a few things today. Plus doing a Skype meeting with my coaching buddies, and another radio interview after that.

Need to get my tax lists sorted for the 2nd quarter and send them to my tax helper - this week!

Client sessions tomorrow and Friday.

I promised to send Dorelle's Journey to my formatting people end of the month, and just got feedback from two more beta readers.

There's an interesting job opening in my home town, and while I'm still discussing whether I really want it, I need to get that application out. Deadline is August 10th, but I'd like to get it in early, to demonstrate that I'm organized and responsible.

I'll be away from home for a few days (visiting my Dad and Sis) starting on the 30th, so that means I need most of that done, plus all the blogposts and newsletters for that week.

It feels rather mad - but doable. I just need to learn to really structure my days. It's a good thing.

HI DI HO and good day my friends!

Whew! What a morning. Had two rush [sign in to see URL] was to get Gaia my cat to the [sign in to see URL] had a problem with her [sign in to see URL] need to put a salve in it 3 times a day, for 10 days. Possibly something was in there... (She hates to be picked [sign in to see URL] what fun we are going to have for 10 days.)...
Second, I had to have a cortisone shot the big joint of my right toe. I've had them before, but needed a rush job as this one wore off [sign in to see URL] me working it to death! LOL (AND I needed it done, cause if they let Dad out of rehab, they will need me at their place.)
Then grocery shopping for me and Mom and then water the new [sign in to see URL] head the flowers and pick the gardens. [sign in to see URL] are just waiting around for Dad to call Mom about his Doctors appointment. He DID NOT want anyone driving down there to go with him. He's of course hoping the doc says he is ready to leave [sign in to see URL]'s not been home since June 4th. [sign in to see URL] to relax a bit till dinner...

FIRLE....come one lady. You have been through much crazier times and actually came out the other end in pretty good shape! You can DO THIS! emoticon

Re: July's Summertime Chat


Yes, I started scheduling things. If all goes well, I'll send the tax lists out on Friday (decided to just mail them to my tax helper, rather than wait for her to come and pick them up).

I managed Audacity fine and sent out those recordings - haven't heard back yet. However, yesterday's radio interview was plagued with problems and we rescheduled to next week. *shrugs*

Today, I found out that my colleague gave me data that was arranged differently than normal, and I'm working to correct the wrong numbers that have propagated to dozens of files. I'm rather annoyed, both with her for deviating from the usual arrangement, and with me for not catching it earlier. *sigh*

Headaches are back. Must be stress-related. Whenever I take a few moments to relax, they ease...

Petal .... emoticon

Just booked train tickets for my family visit. I wanted to try out the new long-distance bus lines, but for the route south I got a really good train offer that whacks two hours off the ride, and on the way home the bus stuff got so complicated that I decided to hop on a train and go home direct, after all.

The extra money is worth the comfort. And I'm learning to give myself the comfort I enjoy.

GOOD THURSDAY MY FRIENDS!
        We brought Dad home from rehab yesterday, got him all set up and talked to Mom this [sign in to see URL] to make sure they didn't need anything before I go outside and mow and [sign in to see URL]'t hear my phone when I'm doing that. She said they had a pretty good night. Dad needs to readjust to his own bed, but he slept fairly well. And ate a big bowl of MaltOMeal this morning. LOL She's waiting for the IN HOME Physical therapy to call ......may or may not call today. So I may run and get some of her stuff later. But they both seemed in very good spirits! emoticon
I just finished up. 1st pulling weeds out of all the flower and garden beds. Then [sign in to see URL] the weed whacker to cut around all the edges. Then 3rd. Mowing [sign in to see URL] it and getting it actually in the garbage [sign in to see URL] the garbage got picked up. So I won't even have to make a run to the dump this weekend.
THEN [sign in to see URL] all the weeds, and used the blower to clean up all the side walks and [sign in to see URL] [sign in to see URL] all the plants!
Tonight for dinner hubby is grilling burgers, sweet corn, zucchini and pepper from the garden, and we even have fresh tomato to go on the burger.
AWESOME [sign in to see URL] I'm tired now! Glad hubby is cooking. emoticon

FIRLE....I HAD PETAL ON THE BRAIN!! I had just finished posting her Bday wishes a day early! emoticon
I think going by [sign in to see URL] train is a great idea and YOU deserve comfort! emoticon
