lilystemp Posted June 27, 2012 Share Posted June 27, 2012 Good morning everyone. It is nice to see so many posts this morning. I know there will be days when people are just too busy or just plain don't feel like posting. I hope those days will be fewer than they have been lately. For those who can't post I really do understand. I was just swamped with so much to do for a couple of months and am just now starting to enjoy some days of doing nothing but what I want. I watched my mom work at the canery and raise us 5 kids pretty much on her own and put up with my dad when he was on a binge witch was pretty often. Many times during the season she would work 10 or 12 hours a day 7 days a week then do house work sometimes at midnight. She never had it easy and we never went with dirty clothes or a dirty house. Often we did without not only what we wanted but what we needed. She always sacraficed her needs for ours. I guess that is why I not only stayed in my marriage for so long but also always felt that I needed to be busy. It was Johnny and his illness that reminded me that there is more to life than work. I wish I would have learned that and spent more time being with him instead of just taking care of him. Heaven only knows how much different his last months and our time together would have been. Our weather here is beautiful. Temperatures have been in the 70s and 80s all week. I love haaving my windows open and letting the fresh air in. Yesterday I went down for our fitness class and almost had to leave. Someone was cold so they had turned the heater on. It was in the 70s outside and warmer than that inside. I exercise in my apartment everyday but I have a fan on and the windows open or the air on. My allergies are so bad that I can not stand stagnet air or hot indoor air. We are supposed to get up into the 90s this week. Even that is a treat this time of year when we are used to 100 or 110 and above. Best part of our weather is that their is seldom any humidity. Susan I will keep praying that your scan will show good news. You are all constantly in my prayers. Have a great day and for those of you on facebook who prayed for my nephew I thank you. It looks like he is going to survive without too many long term problems. He is my ex husbands nephew but he was mine too from the time he was born. I still keep in contact and often feel closer to his family sense our divorce and his death. Hard to change 41 years of being family. Well here I am too long winded (or in this case fingered) again. Exercise time then our sewing group and after that my favorite pass time lately, watching our Giants play baseball. Great day everyone Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
