Good morning, JM,

Yes, time for you to relax!

Thankfully I was able to get ahold of the kidney doctor yesterday, and she had GREAT news! Mom's sodium level is up to 132! Yipppeee! That new prescription is doing the job!! That's one more thing I can quit worrying about! She's supposed to continue taking the meds and we don't go back for another visit until May. <crosses fingers>

One more busy errand day for me today. First I have a chiro appointment and then I'll stop at Mom's for a short visit (Thursday is her hair appointment day). Finally, on the way home, I have a coupla extra places to go to, and then it's home I go. Actually not a really bad morning at all. :)

Have a great day!

Claudie - Good morning. I am ready to start this weekend, it has been a busy week with work, softball practices, concerts, and tutoring and now it is time to relax. Have a wonderful day.

trevor - Good morning and hi de ho.

munchkins mom - Good morning. I will start my catchup on tomorrow. I sleep a few hours later, then get up and take the granddaughter, and then I will just relax.

Good morning, JM,

I believe they are still working on the PSLs with the season ticket holders; I thought they'd be offered to the general public in June or thereabouts.

I got real excited the other day....I saw a 'scout' hummingbird! I thought this was waaaay to early for them to be back, but I guess not. I was going to get my feeder out there, but then I saw that the lows for this weekend will be below 40°, so I decided I'd wait until after that. A few more days probably won't make a difference at all.

Not too much going on for me this morning. :) A trip to the Senior Center for breakfast and then off to the grocery store I go! Thankfully that's it, and then I can come home and sit out on the back porch for a while; that is, IF it's warm enough and the pollen's not too bad. :) It IS getting up there!

I also plan on calling the kidney doctor to see if they have the results from Mom's blood work, which was done a week ago. I figure it SHOULD be available, but then, with them, one never knows! <shakes head>

Have a great day!

Claudie - Good morning. One thing about living in a state that I did not go through high school, I lots of the Tennessee history I do not know and I have learned it through my daily experiences. Many names of towns and landmarks, I've learned through my own research. By the way, I heard that they have started selling PSL for the new stadium.

trevor - Good morning and hi de ho.

munchkins mom - Good morning. That is awesome. I was talking to a Sunday School class mate and he said that he could not go to Selma, he was born and raised in Alabama and the memories are too painful. He is in his early 70s. Have a blessed day.

Good morning, JM,

I knew about all the Native American history in GA b/c, many years ago, I taught GA History to 4th graders; besides Cherokee, if I remember right, there were also Seminoles in south GA. Now the GA History class is taught in 8th grade here.

Okay! Back to going out to do errands today! However one of them is NOT taking Mom to the store b/c the ALF took a group to the store yesterday afternoon, and Mom was one of them. :) Since Mom already went to the store, I decided to make an appointment for me at the nail salon. Afterwards I'll make a quick stop over at her place, then make 3 more stops at some stores before I go home. Gotta get things done! :) Thank goodness it's going to be a nice day....sunshiny and a high in the low 70s. The pollen count isn't really too bad either (it's 155) even though it's considered 'high.' That's VERY low when the highs will be getting into the thousands sometime real soon. :(

Have a great day!

Hi JM, we've been fortunate over the munchkins spring break. Since their cousins go to school with them everyone is home. We have adults to watch while those of us who work, do. I know the feeling of having too much on your plate. I look forward to vacation.

Good morning, JM,

That's interesting about the name of Alex's school. There are a lot of things in GA named with Cherokee words, too. :)

It pretty much rained off and on all day yesterday, giving us about 1½ inches of rain (in the rain gauge). Hoping the rain/clouds will be moving out later today (or earlier, maybe?). Time for some sunshine!

Have a great day!

munchkins mom - Good morning. No, I did not take the trip to Dollywood. They had a blast and did not make it make to Ooltewah until after midnight. By the way, Ooltewah is believed to be a Cherokee Indian word meaning "owls nest". Owls is also the nickname for the local high school and middle school mascots that are in this area.

Claudie - Good morning. I was very proud of GSU, they did well. Congratulation to you and all of GSU's alums. I hope that the Hawks can get back on the winning trail, too.

Good morning, JM,

Well, my alma mater, Georgia State, lost their game to Xavier last night, so their season is officially over. It's alright for me, though, b/c nobuddy even thought they'd go that far!

I found out from Daughter that Jake and Emma did quite well in their soccer games yesterday. Both of their teams won, and Jake even got to play the goalie! :)

The Hawks play the Spurs today at 3 PM EDT; hope they can get back on the winning track.

It's raining right now, and it's supposed to continue through the rest of this day, all the way 'til tomorrow evening. Good thing there's nothing special I have planned for these next 2 days! We DO need the rain, though; it brings up the water table AND it keeps the pollen down...well, at least for a few more days. :)

Have a great day!

Claudie - Good morning. I will be pulling for GSU, too. Both UGA and the Hawks did not do well on yesterday. Alex's softball schedule has not been released yet, we should have it within the next few days. Go Panthers!

munchkins mom - Good morning. I just left from dropping my granddaughter off at school, the band and choir are heading to Dollywood. This is an annual event for the band and choir. By the way, the school name is Ooltewah Middle School, our town name and the name of Native Americans.

Good morning, JM,

Just wondered...when is Alex's first softball game?

Jake and Emma are both playing soccer this Spring, and their first games are this morning, one being at 9 and the other at 10. I believe I'll just pass on today's games and stay at home to do some weekend things. I WILL be watching the Round 3 basketball game this evening that features my alma mater, Georgia State University, against Xavier. Hoping for another upset win! <crosses fingers>

Have a great day!

Good morning, JM,

Aaahhh! Spring is just about here, 'officially' arriving tonight at 6:45 P.M. EDT. I know lots of people are happy to see this day; now let's see if the weather cooperates! :)

I actually DID end up going out yesterday, but only with hubby to Subway, where I got a salad. :)

Yes, I could not believe it (b/c they were the lower seed and the underdog), but GA State beat Baylor yesterday in the last few seconds of the basketball game on a crazy 3-point shot! Unreal! Now they play Xavier tomorrow evening.

The GA Dawgs play today at 2:40 PM EDT...and the Hawks play tonight at 8 PM.

It should be a much calmer, quieter day for me today; not planning on going out anywhere, not even for lunch. :)

Have a great day!

Claudie - Good morning. I see where GSU beat Baylor, I had picked that win but only because they were from Georgia. I had them winning one more game in my first bracket but losing the next game in my second and final bracket. I hope that they make it to the Sweet Sixteen.

munchkins mom - Good morning. My two grandkids' Spring Break is not until the last week of March, they have a trip planned to Florida to Busch Gardens. I will not be going, I will work that week. Have a great day.

Hi JM, I know the feeling. It's been busy for us with the munchkins home on spring break. I keep thinking they have to get up for school each morning. You would think I'd know by now. They've been home since the 13th. They go back the 30th and then they're off again for Good Friday and the day after Easter.Griffin received some wonderful outdoor gifts. A tree swing, a zip line and some kind of line that is tied between two trees that he can walk across. His dad will install them when the weather breaks here and then his Uncle Mike will install them at the Cape for him for summer. I think they'll be great fun.

It's supposed to rain pretty much all day long, too. Oh, well, we DO need the rain and I AM staying home (thankfully I was able to get my grocery shopping done yesterday after all)! :)

Helping during the softball practices is good. :)

Good morning, JM,

Wow! You guys ARE busy with Alex's sports this Spring! Are you also coaching the softball team again this year?

I'm taking Mom to get some blood work done this morning (checking sodium for the kidney doctor), and then we'll head on over to the store for her weekly shopping. What I do after I take her back home depends on the time....if it doesn't take us too long, I just might go to the grocery store afterwards; however, if things take longer than I hope, then I'll just go back home and do the grocery shopping tomorrow. We shall see, but I hope I can get everything done today since heavy rain is supposedly a-comin' tomorrow!

Have a great day!

Good morning, JM,

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I'll be going out today, but won't be taking Mom to WM as usual. She has to go do lab work tomorrow morning (for the kidney doctor; checking sodium level), so I just figured we'd go to the store after that. Therefore!! Hubby and I will be going out together and doing errands. Since I won't be able to go to the Senior Center for breakfast tomorrow, we're going to go this morning, and then go do our errands. Hopefully they'll go smoothly. :)

Have a great day!

Good afternoon JM

Well, it's happened again and this time I believe it's permanent. It is over between Mrs. K and I. We've been here before and here we are again. Currently I am sitting at Mom and Dad's. Mom came and got me around 11:30 this morning as I don't have a working car still. Hoping I can get the car running to where I can get back to what will soon be my former job in Glen Dale.

Right now I'm taking this all one day at a time. Trying to smile for the next few days and weeks is going to take all I got. I will try to check in whenever I can here. I'm still over at facebook a lot and if you're friends with me there, you can find me there as well. I'm working on filling out a couple of job applications and trying to just find a job back in Parkersburg again. In the meantime, I'll have to make a couple more trips back to Tyler county to get the rest of my stuff.

I made it through this once, and will make it through again. My phone has been blowing up with support. I feel blessed to have some of the greatest friends in the world. Even if I haven't met any of you in person. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers.

At least the sun is shining today here. Almost 70 degrees.

Good morning, JM,

Going to New England in July, are ya? That just might be a good time to go.

Starting off this week with a visit from the yard guy. He's not going to be mowing b/c the grass isn't really growing yet, though, it IS greening up in a lot of places. Today he'll just be doing lots of odds and ends all around the yard, including trimming up all the bushes. Maybe in 2 weeks when he comes back, the grass will be ready to be mowed for the first time this season.

Other than that.....not sure yet.

Have a great day!
