Good Morning Company Girls!
Well, I just have a few minutes...hubby and I are taking our new mattress up to our trailer (about 2-/14 hours drive away) today plus 'opening up' the trailer for the season....hubby does most of the work while I bat at mosquitoes...the water lines have to be flushed out, the hydro turned on, the grass, which is probably a foot high needs to be cut. Maya wanted to come along but this is hubby's last Friday off before the holidays kick in...I figure any Fridays off in the summer will be with everyone.....so this is our very last alone one. Anyways, eldest daughter ended up needing Maya to babysit......
This week the sale of mom and dad's house went through...kind of bittersweet...good to get it all done but the final door closing on an earthly, physical connection with dad. Now, some more work as we clear out all the rest of the household goods that we left in for stageing.
This past Father's Day was extremely difficult....I stayed home from church, went to the cemetery.....dad's graveside looked pretty pathetic...abandoned, my brother called it....so he got to work and added some topsoil and peat moss...planted a lily flower.....I guess we'll have to see about a gravestone soon...not quite sure on the timing of these things....I think you have to wait a certain amount of time for the ground to settle but no idea how long.
Second oldest daughter called early this morning asking for thoughts and prayers for a friend she used to work with....a 22 year old young man named Mark who was diagnosed with brain cancer a short time ago....it would seem that he's not responding to the usual cancer treatments...chemo and such ...they're taking him in for emergency treatment...if you could remember him in your quiet time that would be a good thing....
...so, that's about it..oh, I did see a new counselor for Emma last night...Emma has an appointment with her tomorrow morning...Emma is still pursuing another living situation....although she keeps talking about how excited she is to see her friends at the trailer this summer...go figure....you have to be brilliant to figure out teens these days....and I'm not...I'd just like it to be done with...either way at this point.....defeatist attitude I know...but I'm tired.
Take care girls and have a great first weekend of the summer!
