Still vacationing...

I think I took this Monday evening, maybe.
Not often lately we have a colorful sunset, thought I would catch this to share.

Last Post

A little fuzzy - sorry
The boy comes home today. Here's wishing you all a Happy, Wonderful, Merry, Whatever for the season. I will be busy being Mom, Grandma, cook, cleaner, and Roomba driver for the duration.

I'll see you all in the New Year (hopefully) . I better get at the bleep sheets for his bed.

Enjoy!

Starting PT

DH went for first therapy session today. I guess 50-60% of the meniscus had been removed during surgery.  Well, anyway, DH wasn't in too bad of shape when we left. He wanted to go to Olive Garden for lunch afterwards.

He can gradually go to no crutches outside and has been encouraged to go crutch-less in the house. So now I am not the chief, cook and bottle-washer full time. Yeah! He's not complaining much...

PT three times next week - it had better not snow! I don't do well on wet, icy, or snowy roads anymore. Have tomorrow off and then Friday again. Let me tell you, it's gonna be a long two weeks and then we don't know what happens. I don't care if we go out to eat or not.

I'm tired.

DH knee surgery went well

Just got home from DH's surgery - he had what the doctor called a torn meniscus  - I saw the pictures, looks more like shredded to me. We were gone almost six hours, I am tired, feel like a pack mule and he can't drive for at least two weeks. We will be doing PT in town 2-3x a week, seeing the doctor, and taking paperwork to the office once a week.

Pray for my sanity!

Aliens in the night

I didn't get to bed until late last night. I didn't program the Roomba, 
 because I didn't know what time DH's surgery was on Monday. I didn't want it to get full or hung up while I was gone. So... I went to bedand 
had barely gotten to sleep when I heard a "beep, beep, bee, dah, la, beep" and the room was bathed in green light as the Roomba crawled off it's dock and began cleaning! I tried to find the remote to send it back to the dock as it swished under the china cabinet, backed up and went the length under the cabinet and headed for the telephone table. I tried to grab a sock just as the greedy beggar sucked it up. It stopped and kept telling me "Clean Brushes" over and over, the 'full light' was glowing and there was no way it would shut off! It wouldn't be happy until I took care of it. I hadn't even unpacked the brush cleaners yet! After I took care of it's problems, I set it back on the dock and unplugged that puppy! It was after two a.m.! I lay there trying to get back to sleep for a couple of hours. DH had been watching a late, late movie, not saying anything. When asked why he didn't come, he said it probably had a default schedule. Butter wouldn't have melted in his mouth.

Blogger and I are at odds again...........

Hazel's Replacement?

Can't wait to try it out! It takes an overnight charge initially. Merry Christmas to the house - I'm still shooting for a new laptop. LOL!

A New Visitor

The first squirrel I've seen in the tree outside my womb. He (?) was switching his tail up and down and running around on the flimsy branches. It was a nice visit.
