Tidbit Thursday

Just another sloppy, unedited installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head today…

Looks like I’ll be out of town for a few days. My dad’s surgery has been scheduled for July 8th. I’ll head down to help out for a few days. Won’t be able to stay long because of prior commitments but it will be nice to head down for a few days. Hopefully all will go well and he will be up and about without the pain he has been having.

Still up in the air about what the girl is doing – she hasn’t been in touch to let me know what is going on. Guess I’ll find out soon enough but it would be nice to be in the loop.

Ended up going to three different places to get the tire fixed and discovered that the stabilizer bar control link was broken. My mechanic said he had never in his 25 years seen that happen. Makes me wonder what she might have been doing with my car. I can’t wait for her to fix her car so that she doesn’t want to borrow mine any longer. Of course the hubby says just don’t lend it but I have difficulty telling her no(story of my life and the cause of so many of my/our problems).

Slowly ever so slowly the yard and garden is beginning to transform. My new lilies bloomed and they are quite interesting – Lionheart Tango – an Asiatic type of lily. I do like them but I’m not sure I like them where they are – I may move them once they have died back. Still doing lots of weeding – this week it has been the lily/herb bed. I put down some newspapers and mulch so hopefully that will keep the future weeding to a minimum. I normally plant parsley and basil in this area but I didn’t do that this year.

Need to head out to take the boy to the orthodontist. Till next time, I hope you are having a wonderful day wherever you are.

Just another unedited/sloppy installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head today…

Heard this week that my sister’s brother-in-law died. He was only 51, not sure what happened but it certainly surprised the family and has left them reeling. Another reminder to let people know they are loved before it is too late.

More rain – I can’t seem to get ahead this year. Just about the time I get an area weed free it rains and more weeds sprout up. Very discouraging.

More drama with the girl – she needs to move out and has not found a place to stay. She asked about moving back in here. Not sure how I feel about that. On the one hand, I want her to get out of the situation she is in but on the other hand things have been a lot less stressful since she has moved out. I’m not sure I want to deal with the possible drama that could occur. UGH – parenting is soo hard.

Need to get a new tire for the car, got another letter from the IRS, still need to deal with the hospital bill and the insurance policy – so much for getting things done while the boy was at camp.

Hope you are having a great day wherever you are.
