Then my sister called and needed the size of the kitchen cabinet for Dads rental house we siblings have been working on for him. His renters trashed it so we are doing repairs there, so he can SELL it. When you're 80 and have heart trouble, you shouldn't have the stress of being a landlord...so if you know of anyone that's looking for a 2 bedroom house, close to the high school etc let me know, it will be ready soon. ☺
|Taking time out from working for a "Selfie" LOL|
Anyway, hung up the phone and it rings again...it's my Mom telling me the day and time of the funeral for one of the ladies at church. Then the granddaughter-in-law of the lady that passed away called and we discussed the meal etc. and how many to expect. While on the phone with her the doorbell rings, it's my Dad with more measurements to give to my brother when he calls at noon today on his lunch break. He no more left and Dan's worker rang the back doorbell and wanted to know where he should I put the load of barn wood? (Dan got barn wood to use in the basement remodel oh I didn't mention we are remodeling the ping pong and pool table room)? Yep, got that going on, too. Dan and his crew work on it in between other jobs. Kids are excited (so am I) because before it was just concrete floor and walls with my garage sale "junk" on the shelves but still room to play Ping-Pong with their friends. (I plan to post before and after pictures from both remodels...if I don't forget).
So he rang the doorbell again and said to call Dan and ask what he was to do next (worker has no cell phone). Worker started talking to me and my phone rang again. Grrrr telemarketer and add 3 more calls from telemarketers and this all before 11:00. I need to go to Wally World before school gets out at 1:30 today because then I have to drive KJ around in the country so she can take pictures for her Art assignment that is due...you guessed it TOMORROW!!! So looks like One-Hour photo is in my plans today.
Right now as I look to the left of my key board I see 5 post it notes of things that need taken care of ASAP, (a Dentist appointment reminder card, tomorrow a.m., the date and time for Dan and KJ's eye doctor appointments Friday, in Lincoln, a reminder that Tony and Nick need to go get fitted for their Tuxes for Prom, (even though the aren't going to the dance part) a reminder to work on Tony's graduation invitations (that needs done pretty soon, I think), a reminder that one of Dan's brothers and his wife will be visiting us over night next week as they pass through here), a reminder to take Before (during and after) pictures of both the rental house and our basement remodel and a reminder that the bed will be delivered today. Oh, good I can throw that one away. Oh, looky there...a recipe for "Egg Salad" using only 4 ingredients and not a note but I could write a note in all the dust on my desk. LOL.
Beside all the "notes" is a catalog that has 3 things in there that I need to order...one of these days. Beside that is Tony's scrapbook...I planned to have it finished by his 18th birthday but that came and went so I plan to have it ready by his graduation (although he saw it on my desk and told me not to worry about it because "I don't need one" he's getting one...someday he might be glad I made it for him. ☺
I am happy that I finished one project that I started on in January. I have been teaching Sunday school for over 40 years and now as I am considering "retiring" from that, I thought I'd make a big binder full of Bible lessons and that's just what I did. I have 20 lessons on such stories from the Bible as Creation, Noah, Moses, the Ten Commandments, David and Goliath, Jonah, Jesus and also Attendance Charts. All they have to do is pull out the packet and make copies of it (and put it back in the binder when done, so it's there for the next person (I have nothing against ordering class material there's a lot of options out there; I just made this as I wanted that option). Each one has a type written account of that Bible person, a Song or two, to go with it, a work sheet, a coloring page (for young children) and either a Word Search or Crossword Puzzle about the story. I worked on it here and there as time allowed and was so happy when I finished it. Also on the back burner right now is my book about my life (this project may NEVER get finished as I don't work on it as often anymore never enough time in the day).
In other news...while I'm on here anyway I will tell you that Tony has gone on 4 college visits and I think he has decided NOT to become a Game Warden (available jobs are few and far between) and is considering Oklahoma Christian University, at this time. The 5 of us went to Oklahoma over Spring Break and all 5 of us went on the tour of the campus (you never know Nick and KJ might decide to go there, too). Tony has a friend from Camp that is there now and a girl from church goes there, too. My sister went there and met her future hubby there (not pushing him to get married) but you never know. It was cute (although it embarrassed Tony) but our waitress told us that she attends OC right now and she looked at Tony and said "If you decide to go here, be sure to look me up". ☺
SPRING BREAK came and went so fast. Besides the college visit we stayed home and worked on the basement. Well, sorta. Nick went camping with 2 friends (how they didn't FREEZE to death I will never know). This Momma was worried and even considered driving there at 1 a.m. to check on them. I texted Nick and he didn't respond so I started to worry but Dan told me Nick had told him that they would be plenty warm and that Nick's phone battery was almost dead (plus Nick is a sound sleeper). I was happy when I heard his truck in the yard that morning. He said Moh, our dog, helped keep him warm. ☺
What a great surprise Monday when it Snowed in the Morning and melted by Noon. My siblings and I were working at the rental house while it was snowing. Big flakes and so pretty (the snow not my siblings, well maybe they are flakey and pretty oh never mind). LOL. I love snow and even though it is SPRING I was happy to see it. Here's a picture I took from our porch that day. Well, it's almost 1:00 now and Dan stopped by for a quick bite before he goes back to work and school gets out at 1:30 today and I have a few errands to run yet before I pick her up (Wally-World will have to wait til later. I know what's for supper...it's Wednesday which means it's half-price BBQ Wings at Pizza Hut night and the boys ALWAYS!!!!!!!!! get Wings on Wed. ☺Well, if you read this all the way to here...I don't know what...but as always...Have a SON filled day.
