Bushwhacked already!

Hello again! I know that I have been gone for a bit but wowzers have I been busy with life! Where do I begin?

First, my Grandson graduated form High School on May 25th. There was a time that I would have bet that this day would not have come…I would have been wrong, and thankfully so! He has lived with me for the past 10 years and only recently moved back in with his mother. This is a wonderful young man(even if I do have to say so myself) but he has a temper from hell (guilty as charged).

June is when the whirlwind begins! First there is the wedding dress and preparations for the wedding. My beautiful Grand-Daughter is getting married in September so a wedding dress shopping we will go!

She said yes to the dress!

On the way home, we had to stop and eat so we hung out at BJ’s in Mobile, Alabama for a lunch. Of course, alcohol was involved! We are all over the age of 21!!

Mother of the Bride, the Bride, Matron of Honor, and Grand-Mother of the Bride(Me-Dad’s Mom)

Now there is my Mother. Mom has Degenerative Eye Disease and her left eye has become much worse than the right eye. It has been leaking fluids and she cannot see out of it to drive. So, she insisted that we sell her car because she knew she wouldn’t be driving and in doing so, I have become her main transportation. Her eye doctor has started scheduling shots for her left eye in the hopes that the leakage will stop and maybe the eye will clear up a bit. We can only hope and pray that this will be the case. So, I take her for these eye doctor visits, I take her to her regular physician when needed, we go to Walmart and the Mall shopping, and I take her to the grocery store and the laundry. I am not complaining. She is my mother. There is simply not anything that I would not do for her.

After all of this, I must pay tribute to all things good and beautiful. All things summer!

Possibly my favorite of them all!

Rain, Rain go away…

You know the rest. 5 inches on Thursday, 3 inches yesterday and we are well into over an inch so far this morning. I will be so glad when it all just goes away for a little bit. In between the rain drops and the thunder and lightening, my husband and I have gotten the new sand leveled in the bottom of the pool area and we have managed to get the new liner put in and all of the wrinkles out. What a job it has been getting all of that done. My oldest Grandson, Taylor, helped his Pop get the stairs back into the pool and I am happy to say that it is complete and water is now being hosed, and rained, back into the pool. Bring on Summer!!

Taken before we were able to get all of the wrinkles out. I love my new liner!
Stairs in and water flowing!
