Hi everyone...here's a new porchlight volume since the other one was "full" Well, not really full, but you all know what I mean, lol! I will post this, then come back and visit. Please go back and read the last entries...Sunflowergirl's hubby is in the hospital. Sun, I hope they figure out soon what's going on. Some of the gang have been discussing "simplifying our lives"...I think that is a great idea. Den and I were on the roof quite a bit today...ready to put the steel roofing pieces on part of it...that will make it look like a real house Apparently my outburst at Sis-in-law yesterday did some good. Boyfriend mowed a lot of the yard for Gpa. I should have "quit" a long time ago, instead of killing myself, trying to make sure it was done. Gpa really couldn't do it with two broken wrists and shouldn't be doing any now...except for MAYBE the very flat parts and only when the weather is okay, considering his lung problems. I was looking at our animal shelter's website today and think I found the perfect dog for our family. Her name is Joannie...she's a Black Lab mix (medium size)...3 1/2 years old, so out of the ornery puppy stage. Loves to play fetch and loves attention. The volunteer who was messaging me about her says she is very gentle and calm when she gets to be out of her cage. (They all sort of "go crazy" when out in the kennels and someone comes in, because they are trying to say "pick me! pick me!") We get Keira back tomorrow night, so I am going to take her and Lorraine with me to meet Joannie. I have already fallen in love with her...watched a video and saw pictures. So, that is something to look forward to, for sure. I need to finish Den's lunch, then get to bed. Amy is still not feeling the best, but if fever-free will have to go to work tomorrow. At least Keira will be with us so Mommy can just go home from work and straight to bed...Clinton will take care of her. Hope everyone had a decent enough weekend. I felt better after deciding not to worry about Gpa's yard, etc., etc. When he is here next weekend, I won't even mention Sis, so will only have to hear about her if Gpa brings something up. I called my brother in the middle of his surprise birthday party in Texas...wish I could have gone, but just couldn't do the 14-16 hour drive by myself, in one day. And Den needed me to "hold the rope", lol!
