New Beginnings....

Good Morning Company Girls.......

Today is pay day which equals grocery day which also equals, in my teenagers minds....no food in the house!! So guess what's on the list for today! It also coincides with hubby's day off so I guess that's a good thing...grocery shopping on my own is just toooooooo much! I'm also off to get my hair trimmed....every 3-4 months it starts to get a shaggy dog look to it and it really must be dealt with....after all, have to look presentable for Chicago!!.....hubby and I are suppose to go there next week for a few days...he has a financial conference and he wanted me to come along for the ride....last night, I wasn't so sure if it was going to happen cause my dad, who's been in the hospital for the last 4 weeks...who has suffered thru the nasty side effects of colitis, the Norwalk virus, being pushed past his limit in physio to get him on his feet again, dealt with a painful ear for 3 weeks before they finally suctioned a ton of debris from his ears,...and now this....yesterday he had a mild heart attack.....I saw him afterwards and quite frankly if that's how he looks after a mild one, I'd hate to see a more serious one. I was scared to leave him to come home last night....but, the first thing I thot of this morning upon awakening was...no phone call....no phone call to tell me that he had gone in the night,.......so after my haircut this morning, hubby and I will head to the hospital to see for ourselves...I know it's selfish of me, after all he's been thru to want him to stay with us longer...but I really want him to come home to spend some time with my mom in the retirement home...he's wanted that for so long...and quite frankly, I don't know if my mother could hang onto the shred of cognizant thot that she has left in her brain taken over by dementia ,if dad left us now.

Anyways, April is almost done and May is waiting to open the door...the blossoms are out everywhere, they look gorgeous but I'm one of those weird people who likes things nice and orderly.....my trees, at the front of my hpouse, of flowering crabapples always bloom around the long weekend in May, in Canada that's around the 24th,.....well, the buds are looking very red at this moment...I don't think they will wait til then....it's a little disappointing..I know weird...I like things to happen, when they're suppose to happen....oh well...May is coming...I love April and May...they are my favourite...I love seeing all the new shoots and flowers coming and everything greening up and looking so fresh.

New beginnings.....great eh?

It is beautiful around here, too. Although this week we have been experiencing a littl blackberry winter. Hoping to warm up again next week! For now, I am enjoying the lack of pollen due to rain!

How fun to get to go to Chicago. You will be so close to me...wish I could get there and just hug your neck one time!

I continue to keep you and your family in my prayers. You have been through so much, I pray that you can get some peace and a little rest!

Do hope that your Dad does well and gets to go into the Retirement Home with your Mom. And, hope that and Hubby can enjoy Chicago and know that all is okay at home. Blessings for a wonderful week-end!

Reading your post made me laugh. Your train of thought seems to be so much like mine at times... one thing to the next, using "..." to connect it all! :) Have a GREAT trip to Chicago!
