Traveling is fun ...or is that travelling

I don't have much to tell anyone unless I'm traveling..Home is very peaceful. But Saturday I leave for
Shannon, Ireland with Lee, Maureen and Bob
 It should be fun I will have two chaperones to make sure I don't get lost.   ( Ha Ha)  and another (Ha Ha). We'll be gone a week and Bill is staying with my Puppy. He loves Bill and Bill Loves him
I'm always afraid of packing but the only thing I can't replace there is meds so I'm checking and rechecking those.  The weather has been warm but will turn cold and they say the weather in Shannon (our first stop) is cool which I like. I won't have a pc there but if I do you will hear from me.

To put it mildly it's been a helluva week!!! A week ago Thursday I came home to the sound of water pouring out and I discovered that the hose on my washer had broken and water was 3-4 inches hight in the laundry room and about that in my a;djoining kitchen. The downstairs family room was equally wet. I was hysterical, which helps no one. This is when you miss a man around the house. I called the plumber and his first question was "Did you turn off the water?" Stupidly I saiod Not. So he turned it off then p[roceweded to fix the hoses. I'm sitting with a gin in my hand and said, now I have to clean it up. He said "Don't you have insurance?  Call them". Within 20 minutes a cres of seven or eight arrived here with hoses, dehumidifiers, fans etc. They werehere till 8 p.m.  They ripped up0 the kitchen carpeting, which I was going to replace anyhow. The fans stayed here here Wed. of this week.No they will replace the carpetiong and the linoleum in the laundry room. What a mess.

I had the gardener rip- out the bushes in the front, and now he has to put in new ones, but it has rained for the last 2 months. And the houise has to be painted as well. Such is the life of  a houise owner. Some day it will all be finished. Did I Mention, the landscaper is putting a deck in the front of the house.

Today the dog was barking and I was ignoring him but when I got to the fornt door, a large snake had found its hoome on the side windows of the front door. Fortunately on the outside. I don't know what kind..but it was BIG!!!!!    I THINK I'LL HAVE ANOTHER DRINK!!!!!!!

MONDAY..............May 9

What a gorgeous day!!!! The sun is shining and the temp is good. No coat or heavy sweater needed. The grass is growing so fast I can see it grow if I sit on the front porch.   The weekend was OK. My wonderful family remembered me...wonderfully. Dotter and I played  Candleopoly, a form of Monopoly that involved the famous candles, the name of which I can't remember wright now because I'm opld and forgetful. Then I picked up Fried Chicken and a frozen cake at Dairy Queen. Yuuuummmm!!!! We were so full!!!!

I tried to shower early but there was an old movie on and I couldn't leave the TV. Those are so romantic. I loved it right to the end when they kissed and lived happily ever afterSo I went to the store later. Monkey is sleep[ing on the couch very quietly and he will soon start nagging me for his dinner, I wish someone would give me dinner if I whined. It doesn't work. I tried it.

I finally got a good extension so I could wear my diamond that I got on the cruise

Sunday------Allways a Quiet Day

No sun, No rain, But it's dark and gloomy it's going to rain again. That"s what we need more rain.

The guys that put in the furnace came and picked up the jakuzzi. I could not watch them. I gave him a really good price. I was glad to get rid of it. I couldn't watch them take it apart and put it in theit trucks. Milt is up there ,moaning.. I think I have a buyer for the walking thing--whatever. I'll be glad to get it out of the room. (Whatever that's called.)

Tonight I'm going to the concert. The choir and the High school choir are singing together at 5:00 and Bill is in the choir. It should be good. 

Because it's so dark outside Mac had been sleeping all day. He'll probably be chewing on my hands all night.

I really feel like walking the lovable mutt when it's this nice out, even when he's been a BAAAD dog. I had lunch with extra daughter, Jenny, today.She lost her husband but she seems to be handling it well. They weren't very close anyway. He died in Tai-Wan and their ceremonies there sound differen. Something bout fire and flames and chantings. We ate a Eat N Park and I had the salad bar and half of a sandwich. Somehow we can get really full on salad and fruit. I don't think dinner will be forthcoming.

Why does everyone say I look like I lost weight when I've actually gained. It must be that when you wear black  you look thinner. Will have to buy more black junk. Do you suppose I can find black p/j.'s?

My big baby sister is doing fine. Don't know yet about her hubby. Will find out in a few days.

Have fun...EVERYBODY!!!!!!!

It's March 30th and.......

and it's not supposed to snow in spring. I guess only the calendar says spring and the weather says December.

The Pain Center didn't call in my sleeping pill RX so I didn't take one last night and I didn't sleep at all. I feel so groggy and I'm going to pick up my Ambien so I can sleep tonight.. How come I slept so many years soundly and now I need a pill to fall asleep.

I put a nice big fire in the fireplace and it's blazing. That's the only thing I like about today. I like winter in December but late March is ludicrous, or is that ludicrus, or lewdicrus, whatever.

Where did it go?

I wrote an entry in my blog yesterday and it didn't go in. Where did it go> It's out there in the blogosphere floating around trying to find my blog. What a depressing thought. Anyway, it wasn't important. That was the point of the whole blog. I have nothing to write about.

It's as cold as winter. I think I'll light a fire in the fireplace. At least it'll feel inside like it looks and feels outside. I took the puppy out for a walk and he wanted to go for a long walk, My response was "NO WAY< JOSE!!!! It's Monday and I'm out of sleeping pills. I hope the Pain Center calls them in to the drug store......or I will be up all nnight tonight and tomorrow night.

Would you like a purple face?

All's well while rolling at sea. We stopped at Grand Turk,San Juan  etc. and are noww on the way to the Bahamas. One morning, very early, I fell out of bed. The drawer was open and I hit my face. haven't fallen out of bed in many years. My left half of my face is a bright puple and swollen like I swallowed a tennis ball. It's very attractive. Nothing hurts except my arm and knee where I landed.  But I yelled "I've fallen and I cann';t get up"> I COULDN'T GET UP!!!! I was stuck between the wall and the bed.Lee pulled and pushed and finall I as standing, very carefully. It's a great attention getter, but it's tough looking glamorous.!!!
Lee is at the pool...not to my taste so I'm going to read and relax...some more.

We're busy all the time

Tpday San Juan, Puerto Rico. There is a time change for San Juan one hour earlier. So confusing...just for the day until we start moving at 10:30 tonight. I wasn't going to go off the ship but when we got off , there stood a little man thatt said a full city on an air conditioned bus for $20. Quel bargain. It was great. Saw things I never saw the last two t imes I was here. And shopped!!!! We came back in time to nap and then go to dinner and ate with the nicest couples. Lughed and laughed and laughed.!!!!! Tonight there's a singer for the entertainment. Then at the witching hour. 11:15 a dirty comedian. All the old people will be there for sure!!!

I couldn't find my connector to charge my Kindle and the nicest man who ate with us lent me his. Hooray!!!

I have walked so much, I think  Iwill enter a race for old, naughty women, to see who can hobble the fastest.

The food has been good..especially desserts. But even  the entrees are terrific.

This computer room is a half hour walk from our  room, so you see how much I want to blog everybody.

Gotta go. My master is calling!!!!

We're on l;and again

Yesterday as we swayed in the ocean we had to hold onto the railings. We hit some heavy seas and it was wild.It didn't bother either of us though. We had a busy day and woke up as we landed in (hmmmmmm) Grand Turkl. We did  some minimal shopping here, ate a hearty lunch buffet and walked two miles to get to the computer room. I HAVEN'T WALKED THIS MUCH IN MY LIFE , MOSTLY SINCE MY VAST NUMER OF SURGERIES. {Pufff Pufff)
 So far we have a lot of very nice people. we are at open seating and we get put at a table of 8 and we have a lot of laughs. The show last night was fabulous. Everyone had as much champagne as they wanted and the singers and dancers were fabulous. We didn't go to the slots This is casino robber shop. No more do the ding-alinggs- of the machines call to me.Popo Poo.and S_____T!

I'm tired from walking around Grand Turk Island. We made a few purchases and came back to the ship. I think we're due for another nap.

Morning After

I slept like a rock after
American Idol did their exciting final choice.

I wore the PJ;s that Sherri gave me for Christmas..never had them on before, I think she bought the  pants in size XXXXXXXXLL. They keep falling down. Baby sister keeps laughing at me. She said this was time for pic...but she didn't take it.  I have a problem with Baby sister's apartment. I keep walking into the kitchen and going right because that's where the bedroom should be. She gets hysterial when I get to the sink and the bedroom isn't there.She just lets me mak a fool of myself.I guess I have senior moments that go on for a month.  I can't help it if her bedroom is in the wrong place.
We're going to WalMart today for a hat and a bathing suit. I hope we see all those people that they show in the e-mails. We would fall down laughing

More later

What a plane ride

I didn't knnow they didn't feed you on First class. I got up. after not sleeping ( no sleeping pill) at 2:00 A.M. and was picked up by a handsome former Wheeling actor in a limo and went to the airport. No Food. I got on the plane and my entire meal till 9:30 A.M. was a Bloody Mary, gin and two cookies.What a  combo. I was ready for Cheerios at baby sistyer's. I was so sleepy I could hardly stand up.

We went to look fo rthose shoes I wanted ( *what the heck is the name of them) and they don't make them to foit me.  S H    ucks. We had a Jewish lunch....corned beef sandwiches and the worst potato pancake I have ever tasted. Didn't eat that but the sandwich was terrific!!!!

Now we're home and falling asleep!!!
 The "KITTIES" adorable and have made friends with me. One is cdfrawling all over my feet right now. They are soft and sweet and unlike a dog.

We're thinkning of going to see "King's English" (is that the name?) this evening.. I can't take all this activity. I'm an old woman!!!!!!

Did I really post that???

The day is almost here!!!

Tomorrow I take a first class plane to Ft. Lauderdale and meet my baby sister so we can get on a beautiful ship heading for the Eastern Carribean. I don't care where we stop, just getting on a ship where everything is done for me and sailing on the deep blue. Why do I get so nervous before heading out on a trip? I don't klnow  but I am........ and a few drinks couldn't hurt. Maybe tonight. I'll let you know how I do on the plane and then Baby sister and I will spend some time together, Even she takes good care of me.
