September 30, 2014: Clothesline of Birthdays!

Ideas of ways to display the birthdates of my kids, grandkids and great grandkids have been flitting around in my head for over a year now!  I have so many birthdays to remember! My plan was to find either an old window or a picture frame with twelve squares, so that I could list each month's birthdays.  I didn't really have wall space to hang something like that, though.  Of course, I wanted to come up with the perfect idea!  One day it hit me!  As an avid photographer (stalker, actually) of clotheslines, the best idea was right there all along!









Here is the end result!

September 16, 2014 (Tuesday)

Got up too late this morning, 9:00!  When Gary left to go to breakfast at 7:30 a.m., I was thinking it was about 5:30 a.m., so I rolled over and went back to sleep!  Now I know better for next time!  Had a headache (sinus) since yesterday, so I finally took a couple acetaminophen and a shower.  Didn't go away until later.  I'm used to mild sinus headaches going away on their own, but not this time.

Did the McD drive-thru, even though there were a couple things I could've had at home.  I wanted that McD Diet Coke!  Ran into Family Dollar and then took a drive through the park.  Here are some of my past pictures of that drive: 



 
That deer looks like he's trying to make a decision!
 
 Later we ate at Twin's, having a Greek grinder.  We've had it several times, even though it's not on the menu.  They do have grinders on the menu, and this is just one with Greek pizza ingredients.  I don't think it normally has bacon, but this one did, and it wasn't the same pronounced Greek flavor I love.  Gary made me one of his wonderful cappuccinos at Speedway on the way home.
 
Watched the first elimination on DWTS.  Dryel-ed two wool blankets to take up north, along with Gary's two Kromers, and everything seems to have turned out well.  It would've been $35 to take each blanket to the cleaners!  One was just an old Army blanket, and the other one is plaid. 
 
Tomorrow is my annual checkup at the doctor's, so I should lay out clothes, since it's bright and early!

February 12, 2014 (Wednesday)

I was hoping for no school today, due to low windchills.  That didn't happen!  They were predicted for -15 to -20, but didn't go that low.  It was bright and sunny when I went home for lunch.

Today was pretty much typical of the winter days we've had this season.  Another cold one, but bright and sunny, so can't complain! 

Gary decided not to go to Tools For Ministry tonight, as he wanted to go to Madilyn's band concert.  Two bands and the orchestra played separately (all middle school).  They each played three songs.  It was very nice, and Mr. Bronson has them playing quite advanced pieces and they play them well!

Got a cappucino on the way home, even though it was late.

December 31, 2013 (New Year's Eve!)

Went to the specialist this morning.  Not too nervous, as I didn't think he'd do much besides examine me.  So he cleaned out my stuffed nose, put a scope up it (waaaaay up it!), then numbed it.  He gave it 5 minutes to be frozen and then chemically cauterized it!   Yaaaaay!  He thinks that should be the end of the nosebleeds, but can't be sure.  I sure hope so!

They are sending me for an MRI of my head sometime this next month, just to make sure there's nothing else going on.  I'm sure it'll be OK.

I want nothing more this vacation than to "nest".  Basically content to spend all my time at home.

It's snowing nicely tonight, and we went to Starlite for dinner.  I had the Turkey Pretzelwich and Gary had the Big Sicilian.  All was good.  Gary usually cooks the New Year's dinner for us, but bought a frozen pizza at Aldi's instead!  Maybe I've worn him out this vacation.

Well, it's New Year's Eve, but we'll just spend it as every other night and relax!

The ear, nose & throat specialist called and gave me an appointment in a week, on Tuesday after I'm back to work.  They could've made it Friday, but I didn't want to miss Mary Benoit's funeral.

Went to my mom's and, when I got home, Gary said they'd called back and want to make it tomorrow morning!  That's great!
