Trig- I need to go to a salon and have someone figure out what to do with my hair too. It just does not nothing for me at all anymore. I think the texture and so forth has really changed.
It makes me happy that your relationship with your Mom is so good and that you know and honor your dad's words.
It sounds like maybe your bro Greg was just overwhelmed and hit that burnout point, but after venting and getting it all out, he felt better, ya know? Your plan to keep your Mom for longer to give him more breathing space is a good one.
LOL on your DD, starting to get bored with school again. At least she had a good post-Covid run of liking it!
It's about time for college apps and stuff not too far down the road. You are almost there!
Jaz, I'm sorry the interview didn't go better. At least you know ahead of time rather than being with another company that you dislike.
I'm glad you are happy at St Simon and your peeps are starting to roll in. That will be fun!
You have much warmer weather than we do, which is to be expected. We are having highs in the mid 40s to low 50s.
Lori, the transition over to a new device can be tough and yeah, things do get lost! ugh! Is it much faster though? New capabilities?
Are you happy with your new hair cut and color? Enjoy your down time while the house gets cleaned.. that is the best!
DH is coming! He and I were chatting yesterday and we decided that instead of me going to MD this weekend (as I had planned for appointments) I would move/drop them and he would come here. This makes us both really happy. He was sad he wasn't making it to DE and I have been missing him, so this way we can get a little time together. Hooray!
This is by far the longest stretch that I have been here. I came up on Saturday evening and will be staying here until Dec 14th. That is crazy! But then I won't be back here until January.
I am getting more and more comfortable with DE. I can navigate to several areas now without using GPS- if you could see what the area around here looks like, you would know that is quite an accomplishment!
The visit with DD's ILs went well yesterday. They are very nice people. I am always surprised at the age difference though, SoIL's dad is 77 years old. My Mom is turning 80 this year! His Mom is around 67 or so, I'm 52 and DH is 53. His Mom has been having some health problems so she seems a little older than her age in some ways. But both very nice!
This morning I did a Zoom call with my cousin who lives in Maine. Again, a bit older than me- she is 64. Really a great person though and I enjoy talking with her. It's funny how age differences that seemed SO VAST- she was 18 when I was 6 years old!- are nothing now. Life and issues are life and issues after a certain point. We talked for an hour and a half and by then I was about talked out! lol Gotta refill myself for this afternoon.
Paint & sip is in a couple of hours. I think it will be fun. I'm going to finish this, take the dogs on a good long walk and then not too much longer til I go.
Happy to report that some of this bloat that I put on is coming off. I still have a ways to go, don't get me wrong. I went to town in the worst way when I could not walk and do stuff. But at least the tide is turning!
