Weed Abatement Time :-(

It's Weed Abatement time again. Mark is going to spend the next week clearing our lot. I didn't think it was that bad but he says it's a mess. Anyone want to help? It's great exercise LOL.

Mark's Dad fell this past week and needs to be operated on. He dislocated a disk in his back and is in the hospital. We aren't sure when they will operate yet however they want to go in and glue his disk back together. I have to tell you life never gets dull around our house.

It's been a really rough week at home. Mom my is still hanging on. Please say a prayer that God will take her soon. She isn't suffering but it is so hard seeing like this. She was always such a lively person. I can't remember her ever sitting still for more than 5 minutes.

My Mom's sister is at our house along with Hospice. Hospice has been so wonderful. We have 24 hour care for her and they do a fantastic job of keeping her comfortable.
We are at the Retreat for a much needed break. Thanks to all of you who were here last weekend. The break really helped me make it through this past week. I now have everything done I can do until my Mom passes. I'm sorry I haven't had time to write each of you yet and thank you.

I have to go and get ready for our Retreat this weekend. Thanks to those of you who have sent e-mails and prayers. Have a great weekend!

Happy Memorial Weekend

We hope you and your family have a Happy and Safe weekend. We will be spending the weekend with some or our regulars at the retreat. We are so excited to be able to be here!!!

Some of you know my husband and I take care of my Mom who has Parkinson's. Last week she got phenomena and we had to admit her in the hospital. She was there for well over a week and all she wanted was to go home. So after much arguing and tears I finally got everything set up for her to go home with the help of Hospice. She is now home and resting peacefully with her sister and youngest daughter caring for her while Mark and I sneak away to hold a retreat. We are so thankful they were able to come and stay with her.

I wanted to thank all of you that rescheduled last weekend. Our emergency turned into way more than we ever expected. We are looking forward to seeing you soon

Life has been handing out Lemons

Sorry for the lack of blogging lately. Life has been handing out a lot of Lemons lately so I'm trying to stay positive and make lemon aide.

We found out my Son has to have surgery on his arm. My other Son hurt his arm riding his motor cycle and can't use it and My Mom has a cold and keeps falling out of bed. Now you would think that would be enough for one day, however my neighbor knocked on the door to let me know that I just got a ticket. I got a ticket for having a plastic cover on my front license plate. $180 ticket YIKES!!!!! Who knew a plastic cover was illegal? I was so MAD. Don't they have anyone better to give a ticket to!

Today I went to the police department and they at least reduced the ticket to a fix it ticket and it is only going to cost $25. YEAH!!!! Life is much better today. Thank you.

Mark got off early today so we got to have lunch together. That's something we rarely get to do. It was nice sure nice.

The guy came and put full rails on my Mom's hospital bed so she won't be falling out of bed anymore.

Life is looking up again. The weather here is beautiful and the lemon aide is great! Hope life is treating you well. Have a great day.
