Last Week:

Okay...I am back.  Last Week was just as busy as the previous week.  

On Monday: Everyone was home because of the holiday.  My husband's aunt came in from VA to help take care of Granny after her surgery.  We both took Granny to her pre-op stuff.  I also cleaned and tried to get caught up on laundry.  When schedules get out of whack, my house usually pays the consequences.  

Tuesday: I went and played Bingo with Wilma at the Senior Center.  Granny wasn't there because her other daughter was here.  I told Wilma I would still come even though Granny wouldn't be there for three weeks.  I got stopped every few feet from everyone asking how Granny was doing and to say they were all glad that I got there so quickly.  I have really really become fond of these elder people.  So many of them gave me hugs and they kissed my cheeks.  It's like having 40 grandparents.  I love it.  After the center, I went and got my oil changed (and had to unexpectedly buy a new tire).

Wednesday:  Granny had surgery.  I was up there with hubby's family.  Everything went well.  She had a bladder sling put in (not the mesh).  Took Elexis and her best friend (my other daughter) to church.  I went back to the hospital after I dropped them off.  

Thursday:  Finally got to visit with my sister after she got finished across the street.  We got to talk for over an hour and I am glad that we will be making these a weekly thing.  

Friday: I went to visit my really good friend who was also my daughter's 5th grade teacher at school.  I had an awesome visit with her (while her kids were in Music). 

Saturday: Birthday party for one of my other really good friend's daughter.  We also stayed longer than the party because we were having such a good time visiting).  My daughter and I also spent a good portion of the day in our PJ's watching movies (one was The of my favorites).  

Today:  We went to church.  Came home had lunch and then packed up the cello for my daughter's guest conductor workshop and concert.  After we dropped her off, hubby and I spent some good quality time together while waiting to go back for the concert.  We went to Michael's and the bookstore.  

I have also done a lot of reading (because of a lot of the waiting I have done).  I finished reading Divergent and Insurgent and started Alligiant.  My family can't wait until the Divergent movie comes out next month.  Definitely going to see it.  

Okay; you are all pretty much caught up on life up to this point.  This week is also shaping up to be a busy week.  Hopefully it won't be too bad.  Next post I do will be about some of the changes that have been happening.  


  1. Now that I am exhausted, I'll get us a cup of coffee and wait for your next post!!! Good to have you back

    1. Luckily I had a little bit of down time today. It was nice. After playing Bingo, I came home and caught up on blogs and laundry. :) Tomorrow I take my MIL and her sister shopping at the outlet mall. That will be fun (maybe..haha).

  2. Wow! What a busy week! I loved the first two books in the Divergent series. I'm waiting for Adrian to finish Insurgent before I move on to Allegiant.

    1. My husband just finished Divergent, my daughter is in the middle of Insurgent and I am about 100 pages into Allegiant. I so desperately want to talk to them about it and they are not there yet.. agh.

  3. You are a busy one! lol Hope you're getting enough sleepy, lady!

    1. I nap...a lot. I think I like naps more than I like a full night's rest. lol Today, I had a lot of down time so I was able to catch up on a few blogs. :)
