Well, I personally cannot believe that we are already halfway through July. School starts August 27th, I believe. Sheesh where does the time go?
I was out of commission for a couple of weeks in June. I had a toe where infection got into the bone. So oothe result of that: amputation. The dr didn't have to take the complete toe. It was a simple surgery. I was hardly in any pain. It had to be done. I had to use a walker for a couple weeks and couldn't go swimming of course.
I have been doing a LOT of babysitting. I keep our son Tom's daughters, Shelby and Kenzie when he works. And he's been working a lot. And our oldest son, Chad who also works for the railroad, works many odd hours. I babysat 5 of our 7 kids one day for 9 1/2 hours, That's a 10 yr old, 9 yr old, 5 yr old and the twins...2 urs old. OMG that was aa LONG day, but I love it. The next day it was just the twins and Hailey ( 5). Shelby and Kenzie spend a lot of nights here. This is their home away from home I would say.
When I'm not babysitting it seems the kids are all over here anyway swimming. Tom threw a swim party here for Mackenzie last Tues. There 18 kids and adults here. It's a lot of work when you are cooking and supervising that many people, but the adults watch their kids and Tom did all the work as far as cooking and cleaning up. Chad and his family are on their way over to swim right now. I love it when all the grands are here.
Just got back from grocery shopping. It was nice to just get out of the house. I am SO readdy for a road trip. OH! I forgot the big news. My DH, Richard retired from the BNSF Railroad. He retired 41 years to the day that hee started working for them! June 28. I am out of my mind happy to have him around all the time! We plan to travel some.He is building a tear drop trailer. He has the 55 tbird and will undoubtedly be working on it...not that it really needss anything right now. But if you know anything about "car guys" they are always tinkering with their cars. I'm glad he has hobbies.
Well I have rambled on enough for today. The kids will be here any minute to swim. Hope you have a lovely day.
