A great day yesterday. I was in my element. Recliner, remote control Ducks, Trailblazers and other interesting football games. It made the world go away. Awesome game between USC (DR that is Southern California no your home team South Carolina) and My Ducks. Final score was 62-51. It was a track meet. Then the Trailblazers won in overtime. Between time outs and half-times I watched most of both games.
Today is breakfast with the guys, then to Mom's for some TLC and some dinner setting out. They liked what I cooked last night so well they want to have it again tonight. There are enough leftovers to accommodate them. Tomorrow is a work day. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday are at Mom's. Friday a me day. Saturday lunch and dinner for the troops at Mom's.
Last week was one of my easiest weeks. I did accomplish a lot. I fixed my tax program and was able to finish three long standing work projects. Sunday I spent the day at Mom's. Monday was at home. I got up that mornin and said I am not going to stop until I found a solution to my tax program. I did too. Tuesday was finishing the three work products. Wednesday from four o'clock until Thursday at seven at night was at Mom's. We went to Wendy's Thursday for lunch. I fixed dinners at home both Wednesday and Thursday night. Wednesday night was the night I was up all night with Mom. Thank goodness she hasn't had another night like that since. Friday was the movie CLOUD ATLAS. Don't bother. It is way to long at two hours and fifty-two minutes. It is to confusing. It is to boring. Other than that I liked it. I would have been better off going to FLIGHT.
That is my report for the day. Now I am ready for yours. What went on your life recently? What is going on in your life in the future, near and far.
I got an update from Kaye and here it is:
Things are holding steady with Tarzan. We see his oncologist on the 5th. She's wanting to increase his Temador from 300 mg to 400 mgs in November. He takes that only 5 days a month and he's been tolerating it well and she says he's stable, but she wants more than "stable" as the cells from this type of tumor are aggressive and could regenerate.
My 1st two months of retirement have been very busy! We've been to Monroe LA for Tarzan's youngest grandson's 1st birthday; to Corpus Christi for the internment of his mother's ashes then once again to Southbury Connecticut. Tarzan really wanted to see the fall foliage and visit his long time friend up there again. Since I really don't know what condition Tarzan will be in in a year, we went. I did most of the driving since Tarzan still does have some vision issues. The countryside views were amazing! It was a beautiful trip providing Tarzan and Steve some excellent photo opportunities. However, I'm happy to be home.
During all this, I sold my early 1980s bedroom set and selected a new one from Havertys. We painted the bedroom and doing the trim just about did us in. Sixty-year-olds are not meant to crawl around on the floor painting trim! Especially when we discovered after everything was dry, that we used flat paint instead of gloss. So we got to do that a 2nd time. Anyway, the new area rug is in, the furniture is in and I should finish filling up the drawers today. Undies, socks and what-not have been in boxes stashed in the tub in the hall bath :)
So, we have 2 more trips on our agenda: One to Hot Springs still. We thought we could combine that with our trip to Monroe in September, but my cousin and her husband were going to be in New Mexico. Then,.... the trip to Bellevue, Washington! I'm really wanting to do that next year. Will keep you posted :)
Again, I am saddened to hear about the loss of your Uncle and of Pat.
