Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

We are definitely going to plant Dahlias this morning.  Just waiting for Mike's pills to kick in.   I think two are dead.  I hope the rest are enough to fill in the pots.  They do spread pretty well, but we ordered fewer of them than we have in the past.  

Pretty day today, with no rain predicted, and our flag is flying.

Update:  We got the Dahlias in, but barely.   There are four pots on slabs in front of the house on the Decorative Rock.   We have another name for the Decorative Rock, but my mama taught me not to use that language.   Mike took a cart out and picked up each pot, one at a time, and brought it up to the porch, where I planted and fertilized it, and then he brought it back to the slab.   I am beyond worthless.   Just planting the four pots and then watering them and taking the tools back to the garage and I was huffing and puffing like a steam engine, and in so much pain I wanted to cry.   Pathetic!   Poor Mike struggled so much with his balance on the uneven grass and the weight of the pots it exhausts him and I really couldn't do anything to help.  When he had the pots replaced he used my walker, which is only used around the house out of doors, to walk on the D.Rock to turn the water for the hose on.  We have the hose stored in a decorative bowl on the porch and can do our watering from there.   We did so little, and we were both completely done in.  Embarrassing, irritating and annoying.  We used to be able to do all that as easily as it sounds like it should be.    I'm afraid this was the last year for us to do it.  :-(  

I've had trouble sleeping the last three nights.  I'm not sure if I sleep so badly at night because I catch so many Cat Naps watching TV during the day, or if I catch all those Cat Naps because I sleep so poorly at night.   Chicken or egg?  ;-)      I guess we really do get enough sleep, but it's just not good quality sleep.   I'm so sorry you are controlled by your mom's sleeping/TV habits.   It's hard enough when you don't have that kind of thing to contend with.   I know she has her own issues, so you really can't say much, but I hate that you can't just snuggle in and go to sleep.

What is Jelly Bread?

 Happy Memorial Day Weekend

We watched some very good programming for Memorial Day that had me in tears.  It is good to remember why we celebrate this weekend.  So many have given their lives to keep us free.  In what other country could I call the president names...not many at all.  I did do it pre-election.  I hope you have noticed I really have not done that since he has taken office as I believe in supporting our president and country.  So unless a Hitler type became president, you will not here me say anything truly nasty.

We did not do much at all today.  Diane brought us McDonald's for lunch along with a lecture.  She can stay home from now on.  It is so easy for she and Joanne to criticize.  They are never here to do the work.  Suz comes each day but that is because mom is paying her to.  And she does as little as possible and leaves.  I do as much as I can and when I miss doing something i do not normally do, I should not be blamed.  Oh well. some things never change.  My mother should be blamed.  She really does as little as possible.  I wait on her all day long and she never asks....she tells me to do things.  She does not realize how hard it is for me to do it.  Ok no more whining.

Jelly bread is Bread with lots of butter and lots of jelly or jam on it.  My mom could live on it. The amount of butter she eats on bread is disgusting, lol.  Same with the jelly.

We are having Grandma's Chicken Soup tomorrow.  I put the jug in the fridge to thaw.  She told me today that she saw it up there and wondered where it came from.  I burst out laughing which I should not have. 1. I have told her where it came from at least 3 times if not more. 2. I hurt her by laughing at her. (it was that or cry). But I turned it around on her by calling her an old bag and telling her to shut up.  Then every time she started to say something I told her to shut up. repeatedly.  Soon we were both laughing.

Well, that is it for us.  I really want you to get some good sleep.  I thought I was up at 5 something this morning.  But I asked mom the time and she said 9 and I said What?  She said I told you to go back to sleep at 5 and you did.  For once you listened to me.

That was our day.

Hugs my sister,

Happy Memorial Day  

Memorial Day, on the last Monday in May, is when we remember and honor men and women who died while serving in the military.

Veterans Day, on November 11, is the day to thank all the men and women who have served in the military during wars and peaceful times. 

It's heading for 68 today with only a slight chance of rain.  Perhaps not warm enough for some, but still pretty good for BBQs and visits to the cemeteries for those who plan them.

It looks like we lost about a third of the Dahlias waiting to plant them, but I planted the dead looking ones anyway, in case there might still be some life in them.  I can't order more, because as usual, they are now sold out.  If you'd like to see the Dahlias we planted, check out this link.

I thought we had lost two Dahlias, but we lost (probably) four!  I usually order four per pot even though they recommend planting them further apart, but this time I cut down to three per pot ~~ then we lost one per pot!   Might get kind of skimpy out there ~ or not.  We'll see.

Barb (Noni2) starts her dialysis tomorrow.  She will initially go for two days a week, and then probably three days a week ~ for life.   I know she would handle it well if it weren't for that last phrase ~ for life.  She will handle it as well as anyone could.  She's strong, but I hate it for her.  Please say a prayer or two for her.

Maybe say a few for our President, too.   Charles Krauthemer calls what we are hearing from what seems like all Democrats and all News Media the  "Trump derangement syndrome".    I know he has brought much of it on himself, but the unrelenting rabid hatred isn't doing our Country any good.   I honestly think some people feel that if they could impeach President Trump, then Hillary would be installed into office.  lol.   What a shock it would be to them to find that even if they could also impeach Pence, they'd get Ryan, and then the list gets even worse for them I think.  LOL      

Oh, I hope your mom likes the Chicken Soup.  Maybe taste it and add a pinch of salt if you think it needs it.  I do.   I'm glad you could both laugh about her not remembering what you had told her many times.   Families!   Can't live with them, can't shoot 'em!  ha! 

 Nice that Diane and Joanne came over to dump on you ~ just what you need.    Surely they can tell how hard it is for you to do as much as you do!   They'd best not tempt Karma to come and visit them, or they might find out.

Ok, I've had and enjoyed Jelly Bread, just didn't have a name for it.  Definitely my kind of thing ~ unfortunately.  I haven't had it for ages, but it sure sounds good to me.  

We've been watching a series on Netflix (I think) called The Crown.  Have you seen it?  Your mom might even enjoy it.  It's about Queen Elizabeth from when she was a girl through present time.    The first series ended for us last night with Princess Margaret giving up her long time love, Peter Townsend, at the request of her sister the Queen and the demand of Parliament.   What hypocrites ~ many members of parliament were divorced, but they denied her the right to marry the man she loved.    Of course I NEED to see what happens next (even though I can remember it), but they are making me wait until the Fall for the next season.   How rude!

House of Cards starts tomorrow.  Of course we will watch it, but right now I'm not feeling too much enthusiasm.  Too close to reality.

Have a good and happy Memorial Day!

Good Morning!

Currently 44 degrees here, heading for 75, no rain, low wind.  Should be a nice day, and I'm just waiting for it to warm up in the house so I can put my hair color in.  I can't wear a sweat shirt while I'm sitting in the bedroom with my hair color processing.  ;-)

I actually slept well last night!   Only about 5 hours, but I will joyfully take it!

Other than getting my hair colored, I don't think we have any specific plans for today.   How about you?


That was the start of my communal post, but now I am so blankety blank mad I could spit!  Barb actually started her dialysis yesterday.  She has been going to a group of wonderfully supportive people for the three years since she has been diagnosed ~ her Kidney Dr, his PA, Dietitians, someone to check on the fistula in her arm to be sure it can support her when she starts dialysis.  She loves them all, and they love her ~ several cried and hugged her when she told them that she was leaving to start dialysis at a different facility.    I'm not sure why that was necessary, but they have said from the start that she would go to this new place quite a distance from her house at first, and then in time she would be able to go to the clinic that is very close to their house.   I had assumed that the place she would start at would be excellent and ease her into the routine before sending her to the place close to her home.    When she was told that she would have to start, she was told that they would call her and have her come in and see all the equipment and meet the staff and take care of any questions.

Well, that didn't happen.  She was scared and needed some reassurance but instead She was told to come in, given a tech who couldn't speak English well enough to understand her or communicate with her, and didn't seem to give a damn about her.   He hooked her up and disappeared.  Her machine had bells going off and he didn't reappear.  She started feeling dizzy and like she was going to throw up ~ and then did, and still no tech.  Finally a woman went by and she called out for help.   Her tech came back and gave her a shot of saline solution, and she almost instantly felt better.  Apparently she wasn't supposed to take her Blood Pressure meds before coming in, but no one bothered to tell her, and her BP dropped to dangerous levels.   

They wouldn't let Tom come back with her, though she had been told he could.  It was a terrible experience, but you know Barb.   Ultimately she felt better so all was well, and they went home so she could rest for a while and then Tom took her out to dinner.

I'm so blinkin' mad if I owned a gun and still thought I could deal with all the hassles of plane rides, you might see a headline that "Crazed Colorado woman holds Canadian Dialysis staff at gun point!"    

She shouldn't have been treated that way if she'd been on dialysis for five years, but her very first time?   I'm  beyond furious!

Sheila and I begged her to contact her kidney Dr or at least his PA and tell them what happened so maybe they could talk to the horrible, worthless, inept, incompetent staff for her ~ but I will be surprised if she does.

Ok, enuf!  I just had to blow off some steam!

I'm glad you got your AC set up and you can hopefully get some sleep AND have your breathing help!   With the Walkie Talkies, will you leave them on and still be able to hear your mom's TV, or will she just call you if she needs you?   Probably the later, now that I've said it out loud. ;-)   I hope that works really well!

I'm afraid the old game shows would drive me up the wall, so better you than me, my dear.     House of Cards started today, all episodes available.   I know we will watch it, but right now I'm too turned off on all the hate and ugliness in our own "real" world to be looking forward to the political machinations 'there'.

I do hope your mom likes the Soup, and I wish you could too.  Sorry 'bout that. The dinner Joanne's neighbors sent sounds wonderful!

Good Morning 

Another pretty day here.  Our sprinkler system has a problem ~ again ~ but we are not alone.  When we reported it to the HOA, Steve said he would add ours to the list!   Sprinkler guy is supposed to come today, I think, and look at all the sprinkler systems that have leaks.   Almost funny ~ but not quite.  Water is currently shut off.

I need to water our new plants daily since they aren't getting anything as an overspray from the sprinkler system.   I really should anyway because in the past the first two plants thrived and the last to didn't.  Obviously they get some water from the sprinkler system but not enough, so I need to water them.  Fortunately, it's very easy to do from the porch.  ;-)

Also, it's good to know I'm not alone in wanting to do physical and emotional harm to Barb's Dialysis Clinic.   I initially posted after reading her post and tried to be encouraging and upbeat.   Screw that!   The longer I thought about it the madder I got, so I went back and posted my absolute rage.   I came back in later and saw that Shiela had also posted, and then came back after my post to express her anger too.   Initial reaction is to not upset the person who has been harmed even more, so we try to be encouraging and calm.  Screw it!  I  We need to know that our friends 'get it', and don't accept it for us.   Shiela said she would pick me up on her way to Canada, and then heaven help them when these two crazy old ladies came in with Barb!   

Barb is always the first to post, but she hasn't posted yet this morning.  I imagine she needs to recover emotionally as well as physically, bless hear heart.  She would never mistreat anyone, and for her to be treated like that is just infuriating.  I knew you would want to hop on that plane ~ armed and dangerous ~ with us.  

I hope you were able to get a good night's sleep ~ and that your mom liked the soup.   I know it's very popular, but all food enjoyment is a matter of personal taste.

I may be late tomorrow.  I have an overdue 9AM appointment with the Periodontist in the morning.  Such fun ~ I'm anticipating a lecture since I'm a month late.   I'd rather have gone for the appointment than had my April ~ lol

I had written Barb via facebook messenger wishing her luck with the dialysis and telling her I was keeping her in my prayers. She responded that she had been so nervous but it was only 2 hours and she made it through.  Not a bit about all she went through.  She is just too sweet for her own good.  I love her.
5 min after we laid down last night mom turned the TV back on. I wanted to scream but just decided to close my eyes and go to sleep and I did.  I woke around 6 am with the TV still on and mom was sound asleep.  I got up and showered and was playing on my ipad when mom woke up around 9 am.  Then I made us waffles for breakfast.  Then the calls were coming.  Therapy, nursing and oxygen.  I tried to tell mom she more or less scheduled 2 at the same time but she told me one was next week and I said that is not what you told me.  So 10am Joe, her physical therapist showed up.  About 10:30, Jessica, her nurse, showed up.  At 11:30 out meals on wheels showed up.  About 12:15 Agnesian O2 came to do my regular equipment check.  Mom did not tell me this.  Finally everyone was gone.  I told mom I was taking a half hour nap and when I woke up, another nurse was here. Apparently, she had mom on her list too to be seen.  What a mess. lol
Hope you appt with the Periodontist goes well.
Hugs,
