Saying Goodbye.

Went to dinner with friends in Aurora, Illinois.  Then to a play their grand daughter was in.  I love plays so much.  I get totally caught up in them.  This one was "Foot Loose."  It was all I could do not to get up and dance. Really!

Will be going out to  see my son and his family tonight to take them to dinner.  They are leaving tomorrow to go back to Las Vegas.   Grandson Cain is going with them so that Jennifer doesn't have to drive the whole way by herself.  Cain recently got his license and I hope he does OK.  Please pray they have a safe trip home.  Cain will fly home.  I would like to go with them and help drive but I have several appts. and more so, my anxiety has reared it's ugly head for the last week or so.  I honestly can't say why.  My son and daughter have been on the outs for a few years now.  They talked for about 45 minutes yesterday regarding Cain's going to Vegas.  I am thrilled for that.  I have told them many times that at some point they will have only each other although they will always have their spouses and kids.  John and Jennifer will be taking Cain to church with them Saturday night.  They really want my daughter's family to embrace Christ.  Pray that they do.  It  doesn't take away problems but it will help them deal with them.  They will know to lay their burdens at the foot of the cross.  And more importantly...they will get to spend eternity in Heaven. 

Not much has been going on here with me.  I hate that I am always so tired.  I hate that I feel I don't have the energy to do the things I want and need to do around the house.  It is often just a matter of getting off my lazy ass to begin and more often that not, I start getting a kind of momentum.  Then I keep going.

Heat.  Don't want to eat. When I do, the food doesn't stay with me very long.  Can't weigh myself cuz Hunter threw the scale out.  I wish we still had it.  It weighs us at 30#s less than we really are.  Then I can pretend that is my true weight.  Oh...I do alot of pretending.  Facing reality is a bit too difficult at times.

Hunter took Maggie to the farm with him this morning.  I tried to talk him out of it.  When he got home....he let her out of the car to pee and she didn't.  Then the little fucke puppy instantly peed in the house. 

High of 100 degrees again.  I am sure they will cancel Meadow's ball game.  Is heat really different in dry climates?  People say it is and I tend to believe them.  I'll find out when I visit Vegas this coming June.

Wishing you all peace.

Hope you are all well and able to escape the heat.

I don't know if dry heat is better or not. It's humid and 106 here and I'm tired of it. Hope you have a great week.

Sayin' "hello," sayin' "I love you," saying' "good-bye."

Glad that Maggie survived the excursion to the farm. And the odd accident is still be to expected.

Do hope you feel better, soon!

Blessings and Bear hugs.

This heat is bad on a body! Don't even start me to talking about pain feelings and all that! Hope you have a piece of a week, I sure won't!

I think the heat has gotten to all of us. I've never felt like this. I just have no energy to do anything. I hope your grandson has a good trip out and a nice flight back.

I'm the queen of anxiety over here so I totally understand! Not only am I dealing with my husband and his accident but we all had to put on a brave face an gave a dinner party for a possible new hire. Like I had time for that, not!

We survived it as We usually do. I've learned with what has happened in the last 2 weeks that life is way to short and some things we just can't explain. We are lucky and I believe there is a reason for everything. I'm currently orking on my faith but I Believe, oh yes I do!

Thank you for you kind words and friendship!

So we've already discussed the being lazy/ getting going part on my blog lol, but once again, I'm with you!

On another note, there is a big difference between dry heat and humidity. Believe me! Not that the dry heat is better, but it is the lesser of two evils. You feel the sun burning your skin (gosh that sounds hellish) but you dont sweat like you do in humidity so yeah, it is better.

I push through my fatigue as best I can and keep telling myself I must keep going because if I stop I will know how tired I really am. The heat here does not help at all. It was 103 today. I too pray your kiddos unite and you are so right about them eventually having each other. Thanks for visiting me. xoxo, olive
