Good morning.

Sounds like many of you had a good day yesterday.

Not much going on here today for me.  Going to do some housework, cooking and cleaning......so I say.

Morning Tweety

Fairly quiet day for me yesterday.  Choir and church in the morning, then went for a hike, then came home and relaxed.  

Today it's back to work, hopefully won't be too busy a day

Hopefully I'll be getting a call about a job offer, if not today then tomorrow.  

Going to start warming up, should be in the 70s by later in the week.  Which is more normal than the 50s we have been having the last few days

Morning-

Pretty cold here, with temps staying in the low 40s.  New England allegedly has 13 seasons.  Right now we are in "cold mud" season.  We're still waiting for true Spring.

I had a great Mother's Day.  I saw both my kids, my mother, my sister and her kids.  Fiance's older DD even called me to wish me a Happy Mother's Day.  My mother was very happy to be surrounded by family.  

Back to work today.  I have my review tonight.  Fingers crossed I get the raise I asked for.

Tweety-enjoy your day off.

Joe-I hope you get a job offer today.

Hope all have a good day.

Hope you get the raise, BC.

It is cold here, too.

It was mid-40s last night, and raining.

My nurse friend turned her heat on, in mid-May!!!!!

Since Talli is now out overnight, I had them put his rain sheet on.

A rain sheet in mid-MAY!!!!!

Stars, I think the entire AN operation consists of volunteers, so they probably took a break for Mother's Day.

Thoroughly enjoyed my call-in last night.

I slept all day and all night.

My back feels much better and my headache is gone.

Hope all have a good day.

Good morning everyone!

Lil Nel, good you are feeling better after some rest.  

BC, hope you get your raise!

Joe, fingers crossed -- maybe "this" is the one!

Tweety, enjoy the day!

We had a good day yesterday walking around the parks.  There were tables stationed at the entrance of each park, and carnations were handed out to the mothers.  I wore my red one all day!  

Got to get to work!  Have a good one!

I also had a really good Mother's Day. It had only been three weeks since I saw my son. He surprised us with a mustache! I think it looks good, but what mother doesn't think her kids look good?

There was a singer performing at DIL's grandmother Mimi's nursing home. He sang and encouraged all to join in. He did songs from Eddie Cantor to the Beatles. Mimi's memory is going fast since her 90th birthday, but we sang out loud and had a good time. Mimi used to come to the monthly hoot. 

Then we went to a restaurant. We were lucky to have  forgetful and slow server. We had lots of time to socialize while waiting.

Good morning!  I had a great day as well on Mother's Day.  Loving the warmer weather although the forecast calls for lower temps and rain. We could use some rain though.  I just planted my tomatoes and put some blue wave petunias in wine barrels. 

My oldest son, his wife, and grandkids video-chatted me for a short time at the park.  My 2nd son and I texted back and forth for awhile talking about his life, new baby coming in November, his cleaning the house while his beloved took some time to hike with a friend.  Both my sons cook very well and clean.  How did that happen?  🤔

My daughter, the chef in Portland, called and we talked for a long time. She shared a new item she is having put on the menu and it sounds so yummy.  She wants me to come up alone or with her little brother sometime so she can feed us the food she loves instead of making sure to just do plain old good but boring food for her dad. 😉 Good conversation. 

Spidey and I got to spend time with of course.  ❤️

That's about all folks.  Have a great Monday.

I had an enjoyable day yesterday. Breakfast with all 3 kids, grandkids and MIL. Home to putter in the garden, a short nap, then eldest ds's house for dinner. He grilled salmon, and we had roasted squash, beets, and a spinach salad. Rhubarb cake for dessert. Oof, I was stuffed. Stress test went okay, but I don't want to do that again anytime soon. For the treadmill part, I was to get my heart rate to 140 sustained for 2 minutes, and I could only make it to 110 before I became too breathless. So I got the IV stuff to mimic the treadmill and that made me a bit nauseous. Next step is a NP appointment next Wednesday where hopefully results will be reviewed and generate a plan to fix me. A former coworker was there getting the same test, and we caught up on who is still left on the old unit and where others have moved on to. 

Picked up grandsons at their school as their mom is training for her new job, she will pick them up after dinner. Nice to read that most had a pleasant Sunday. Have a great rest of your day,

Long, quiet, boring day ... until Nannie decided, when no one was in the den,  to move her vase of roses, minus the assistance of the rollator, of course. She turned, and fell back on her butt, scraping the left hip on the 1 ft high brick hearth in front of the fireplace, pushing back a low side-table back, knocking off the Cable box, her and her hubby's photo, and a lamp. Also scraped her right leg on the corner of an old TV stand.

I was sitting on the front porch chatting w/ hubby, having coffee, and daydreaming about things we could do to the yard, when -- BOOM! --

We jumped up and ran down to the den and the very first thing she does is yells at US, not to be mad at HER for falling. Then she kept trying to get up, and it wasn't until the 4th time I said it, in a very stern tone, "STOP!", "STOP MOVING!", NANNIE! QUIT TRYING TO GET UP!" She got quite sarcastic, saying, "Yes, Mommy." 

No injuries, no elevated V/S, so she's lucky, for now ....

Later she walked all around the periphery of the yard like nothing ever happened. Earlier I had placed the walker in front of her, so in order to do what she intended to do, she has to confront it. She muttered about the walker, and hubby said, "Yes, you can mutter about it all you like, but every. single. time. you have fallen, it's because you did NOT use the walker. Do I have to handcuff you to it?"

A closer eye has to be kept on her ... oy joy.
