Thursday morning I was at the vampire’s office bright and early. Saw the doc in the afternoon. No surprises. All my blood work is right where it needs to be, not a problem in sight. But I need to lose weight. We’ve had this discussion once a year for the last ten years. Yep, I sure do need to lose some weight. Yes, I need to exercise more. Thank you. See you next year.
Thursday night we met up with Judy and Gary for dinner. I think I almost have them convinced they need to come down to AZ for a couple of months this winter.
Friday, the truck went in for service. Love getting that bill. We met up with Carol for lunch (her hubby was Jim’s best friend who died last year). Had a great visit with her.
Did laundry and ran some errands. Real exciting stuff. We had a couple of lightening and thunderstorms go through. I swear the lightening hit just outside our back yard. Sure did light up the sky and since the boom was almost instantaneous, we jumped about six feet.
Today, Jim and Todd got to bond over a siding fix. Seems some of the nails that hold the siding onto the side of the house had come loose. Many of them in fact. So Jim got some screws and he and Todd put everything back together again. Then Todd power washed the siding, the grill and a couple of cars.
Of Jim’s four sons, Todd is the one who seems to have inherited Jim’s ability to analyze a situation and then figure out how to fix it.
Jim is going to need that ability when we get back to AJ because our oven has quit working. We don’t use it often but it is frustrating when I do want to bake something.
Tonight I’m making taco’s for dinner. We’re still on track to be out of here on Tuesday.
