June Fourth

The above flowers are on son2’s pumpkin plant…

Son3 is home from school… Son2 is off with friend’s… Hubby is at the hardware store getting sprinkler supplies…

And I have lounged around the house all day getting nothing done… well I did vacuum and give son2 a haircut… but that is it… distracted by the computer all day… and snacking… and a load of laundry that I just sorted to put away…

Son2’s pumpkin plant and watermelon plant…

It’s been a whole week since I blogged… I’ve been busy… I’ve been grumpy… Every so often I get a bit envious that hubby and son2 are at home while I am at work…

Work continues to be crazy… Inventory were actually easy days… However our store had  very bad inventory results… where now we will have lots of visitors in our store trying to figure out where our losses were and what we can do to fix them… so we already have new procedures adding to our already long list of procedures and processes to do each day… and don’t forget the customer comes first… we think something is wrong however as we always have very good inventories and to make such a large loss in just one year… so we’ll see what they find..

I would have had an entry done last Tuesday but hubby decided to hurt himself on my day off… I had just settled down to work on my Father’s Day cards and hubby comes running in from outside saying he broke his finger…

It’s not my imagination but every time I finally decide I’m going to work on a project, someone needs me for something… I have not gotten back to those Father’s Day cards yet…

Hubby had good intentions too… He has been cleaning my van inside and out… New hubcaps, new floor mats… He was running the engine to check the oil and other fluids and was using the right hand to check the fluids while his left hand held the rag and was setting on the edge of the car… when the fan belt grabbed the rag and pulled hubby’s hand into the engine…

So off we rush to the emergency room… This happened at about noon, we were in the car by 12:30, in a room at emergency by 1:15, most of our hospital shuts down til 1:30 for lunch so we had to wait for x-ray to get back from lunch and they got hubby by 2:10 and he was back to emergency by 2:20, not broken so received nine stiches and we were back in the car by 3… stopped at Walmart for Tylenol and toilet paper… and back home for son3 and homework…

Remember I hurt my toe the week before… hmmmm MEN… and not to complain but I noticed today that my middle toes still hurt when I put pressure on them from above to bend them… just saying…

All my kitties…

Son2 wants to get a parakeet or two… he’s been researching… he can be very convincing… he also wants to get son3 some cheap little fish for his birthday come July… we haven't had fish since I went in the hospital to have son3 and came home to dead fish as no one fed them while I was gone…

Hubby and son2 planted my flowers in the front barrel…

Son1 moved out last September to get married in October…

Son2 moved into his room…

IMG_0013IMG_0014

He finally has almost finished putting everything away this week…

IMG_0015IMG_0016

We can finally see the floor…

IMG_0017IMG_0007

He had to sleep in the front room the first night as he didn’t finish everything in one day…

IMG_0008IMG_0009

After nine months his clothes are finally hanging in the closet and not just thrown in the laundry basket… He says it is so nice to open the closet and have choices of what to wear and find what you are looking for…

His bed is now clear… He still has to put up more shelves and hang his posters…

Of course the actual reason for cleaning his room, besides hubby threatening him… Getting a parakeet or two…

My evil lately… smores with the giant marshmallows…

I didn’t really have a lot of plans for today, but that was no reason for it to go by so fast…

Son3 is doing his homework… hubby is back from the store…

I’m thinking a simple supper since son2 is not here…

I closed all weekend so not much tv watching… still watching Grimm though…

We watched Game of Thrones last night and son2 was so ANGRY with the ending… it was a great shock… and I forget he is still a teen with hormones… but he still doesn’t need to get so mad about tv and games… wait til he starts discovering life outside of home and then he can have an attitude…

We are heading to the 100 temperatures… It is supposed to be 109 this weekend and I am off so we may go to the coast where it will be only 69… amazing how weather can be so different in just a short distance apart…

One more week and it will be my birthday… I got the day off as a vacation day…

And then I close the four days after that… just can’t seem to get ahead… however I also got my week off for hubby’s birthday at the end of the month…

My birthday is also son3’s last day of school for summer… that’s a great present in itself…

Did you notice he is still doing homework with just one week of school left…

I told hubby I don’t need anything for my birthday… I have enough books now to keep reading for the next five years or so…

Hubby is making some tuna fish… I’m still thinking pot pies too… Does that go together…

When my sons were in college they all did summertime jobs. Sometimes they worked at landscaping, sometimes carpet cleaning and sometimes caddying at a golf course. A couple even worked at an amusement park for the summer. Would be nice if Son2 could find something to occupy his time too. My daughter also worked at Sears here in the shoe department. Too bad about your hubby's accident. Hope it heals quickly for him and hope that work comes quickly for him too. It has to be a worry for you. Hang in there this too shall pass. I can't believe you are already headed into 100 degree days there. The warmest day here this week is to be mid seventies and they are predicting 80's next week. It will be great if you can get away to the coast for some relief from the heat.

Hope Son2 finds some kind of a job for the summer. It would be nice..for him as well as for you. Hope hubby heals quick; even more hope he stops hurting himself. lol Can't remember a time Johnny didn't hurt himself while working on a vehicle. It's a guy thing. :)
Taking a trip anywhere is always such fun, especially the coast, which happens to be my favorite place. You've sure been busy, hon. But you're happy and that makes things perfect, right? Hugs and always my love.

Hi Linda,
I know what you mean by not being able to post a lot of times...time goes by fast nowadays for some reason.
Great plants and flowers. Looked like a lot of work went into that organizing his room..at least he was doing it himself. :)
Great post today..thank you for sharing.

I know what you mean Linda. I deleted my old blog because I wasn't putting time into it with everything going on with my parents. Now that has settled, I started a new one and before I know it time slips away. I think if I can post once a week I'll be doing good for now. Things are starting to slow down though, so am hoping I will be able to devote more time to my recreational writing skills, lol. Hope you and yours have a wonderful weekend and I'll catch up with you on FB.
