Weekend Rewind....

Weekend Rewind.....

This was my first full week back in school-whew I didn't realize how tired I really was from all the wedding stuff.  I had difficulty sleeping or staying asleep all week.  It was as though my body was still going full steam ahead.  Many nights I was wide awake by 3am.  Hoping this week will be somewhat better- sleep wise.

Friday, I kept grandson.  Hub and I took him to a football game.  He really does not like football but I told him we would only stay till half-time. To tell the truth, I only wanted to stay till half-time, too. Nate did enjoy some of the game and seeing some of his friends. After we got home and his bath was over with, we played and then he zonked out.  

Saturday, our church offered free haircuts, vision screening, hearing screening, dental screening, and backpacks full of school supplies.  I went and helped out with this-showing people around each station.  Later that evening my church invited Liberty University SOAR Dunk Team to come to our…

Wednesday hodgepodge

1. It's hard to believe, but next week's Hodgepodge will find us in the month of September. What's one thing you want, need, or hope to do still before summer officially ends?

I desperately need to clean out the garage!!  It is piled with so much junk-YES junk!  It seems like whatever we don't want to put away we put in the garage.  I plan on (key words plan on) cleaning the garage this weekend.

2. When were you last at 'your wit's end'?

When trying to figure out a purchase on I tunes.....and trying to explain the situation to someone who does not speak English fluently and trying to get ready for daughter's wedding at the same time!!

3. Describe a time you were figuratively thrown into 'the deep end'?

I can't think of a time when I was thrown into 'the deep end'!

4. Does the end always, ever, or never justify the means? Explain.

I don't think the end justifies the means.  I don't think one should use bad/wrongful methods to accom…

Weekend Rewind...

Weekend Rewind.....


Friday, daughter and her friends left for a weekend get-a-way before her BIG DAY Saturday! (sniff, sniff)
There is still much to do-in terms of wedding-but hubs and I did not do much or even talk wedding. Well, hub tried, but I would begin to get a little teary eyed and the conversation switched to something else.

Saturday, hub and I went with daughter #1 to look at vehicles.  Daughter #1 seldom has any time off, except on Saturdays when she closes the pharmacy at 2.  As we began looking at vehicles, daughter spotted a truck she has been wanting.  The salesman knew hub so we did not have to listen to the  sales pitch one normally gets when looking at vehicles.  The salesman brought the vehicle home to daughter later that evening and later she took hub and I riding.  It is a smooth ride. Of course, I had difficulty climbing in and out of the vehicle a couple of times but that is par for the course. I think she is making the guy an offer today-fingers cro…

Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. When was the last time you relocated? Did you move yourself or leave it to the professionals? Are you happy staying put or is there a move in your future? Best thing about moving to a new city or town? Least favorite and/or hardest thing about moving house?

The last major move was 34 years ago.  Hub and I moved back to Virginia from Tennessee.
However, over the course of our marriage, we have moved 7 times. Our first house we built and as we all know when building after a few years there are some things one wishes he/she had built differently.  The other moves have consisted of buying older homes and remodeling.  The house we live in now-some of the bedrooms are 100 years old.  I don't care much for remodeling-hub can see the finished product-me I see an old run-down house.

2. When were you last 'moved to tears'? Explain.

This one is easy.  A couple of weeks daughter #2 was in her friend's wedding.  Seeing her walk down the aisle, it occurred to me this would be her…
