So my mother informed me last night that she is getting her third roommate. Hope this one works out better than the other two. She met her yesterday, although she doesn't move in until Thursday. The lady is 94, and my mother said "She looks old!"  Mmmm, yeah ma, being in your nineties officially makes you old! 

Busy day at work.  Love working with the kids though.

Temps are dropping and by the time we went to dinner at Senor Lucky's it was raining lightly and the temp was down to 54!

Making a cake for the shut-in dinners tomorrow: devils food with cream cheese frosting sprinkled lightly with mini chocolate chips.

Today was picture day at school so that made for an out-of-the-ordinary day.  Not much work to do today, though. Monday will be better when the student population stabilizes a little better. Meeting at the ISD Tuesday and edp's with 8th graders Monday thru Wednesday.

Had to do my Friday night babysitting thing. Turned out Amanda had two lessons instead of one. She couldn't find her keys and had to drive my car. She brought me a frappe with a bogo coupon in my car. So dinner was the frappe, string cheese and 4 or 5 pieces of Russell Stover's candy.

Doug had car trouble when leaving work, so Gary had to head down to Auburn Hills at 9:30 p.m. and is planning to tow the car home. Hope it's an easy and cheap repair.

Tonight we ate at Uno's, and it was delicious! I had the baked stuffed chicken and that is so-o-o-o-o good. Stuffed with small pieces of tomato and broccoli.  Gary had sirloin tips, and that was good, too!

Tomorrow is payday! I'll have something like 5-1/4 hours on my check!

Another nice cool day, although it's grey. Every now and then we'd get a sprinkle, but no big deal. Gary went to court in Bay City today to be with his friend who is getting a divorce. He had to be there at 8 or so this morning, and didn't leave (except for lunch) until 4:30! Ridiculous! They're supposed to go back tomorrow, but Gary won't be going as he will be working the food pantry at church.  He called me again when he got off the expressway at Bridgeport and we met at Twin's for pizza since it was getting late. Barely had time for that!

My mother's new roommate kept her up last night.  This is ridiculous also!  Ma weighs 102 now, down from 107 a couple weeks or less ago.

Back to school, back to work and back to making money! Had a good day and nice to see the kids again. Plenty to do.

Ate at Classic Coney Island tonight. Since it's chilly today (never out of the fifties), I had a corned beef and Swiss sandwich with a side of coleslaw. Put a little on the sandwich, I just didn't want it dripping with it like it might have been if they did it. Comfort food at it's best.

Nice and cool today! Didn't get out of the fifties! It was 91 Friday and 84 Saturday. I hope the nineties are gone for the year!

I shortened 3 pair of pants for Madilyn this morning. Nothing like waiting until Labor Day when school starts tomorrow!

Gary took me to Olive Garden today, he said as a "day before school starts treat". Actually, it was because they started advertising the never-ending pasta bowl special today! I had Mediterranean Chicken; it was ok.

Then we went to Amanda's to deliver Madilyn's shortened pants. I helped her make dinner.

I've got my toenails polished and should get to bed at 10:00! We'll see if that actually happens!

Went to church a little early, because we were greeters and had to get communion ready. Talked to Nancy, Deb, Faye and Sandy. Then we had blueberry pancakes and bacon at Naples in Montrose. They are good, but the restaurant is a dive. Yucky carpet, and the bathroom wasn't that great either.

After we got home, I left for Amanda's and helped cleaning up her old house for a bit. Then I took Madilyn back-to-school shopping at Old Navy in Birch Run.  I got her 2 pair of flip flops, cute grey sweats with purple trim and a purple striped polo.  The whole outfit makes her look nice and slim.

I got a frappe and she got a shake at McD.  Her family was at my house.  I pinned up her pants and I have 3 pair to shorten right away. 

Went to my mom's.  Her roommate has adjusted a little, but can't hear.  Her family didn't visit her today!  So she didn't get her hearing aid back with new batteries!  She was worried she was disturbing us.  Poor lady.  Hope this works out!

Had a profitable day today! Gary turned gold coins and jewelry in at the coin shop in Davison and did quite well!

I did a lot of cleaning in the bathroom.

When Gary got home we ate at Tom's Classic Coney Island.  Then I had to get communion supplies at VG's.  Difficult finding the right grape juice, and even more difficult finding a loaf of unsliced bread.  Settled on an Italian loaf.  I shouldn't stress out about it so much.

Then I rushed to my mother's.  Her new roommate is there (98 years old) and is crying all the time, because she doesn't want to be there!  That better end right away!  My mom can't take care of another one!

Then we went out to church to change altar cloths.  It was swelteringly hot as I did the birthday board and drew a picture on it.

Read my Shania Twain autobio for awhile and IM'd with my sister.  Now to get to bed during this storm!

Well, we didn't get to go out to dinner last night, because I had to be at the school open house and Gary had to cook at the revival.  So today when we took Laura to work, we had lunch at Senor Lucky's. Also ran into Doogie's (bought nothing), Wal-Mart (bought bananas and used a coupon for a free candy bar after buying one) and VG's (oatmeal and cottage cheese).  At 3:30 a Richfield Twp. cop showed up in our driveway. Apparently the guy whose mailbox Gary hit when the trailer detached from our car yesterday, called the cops today! Gary though everything was OK since when Gary took fix-it supplies back, the guy had already fixed it. So now he has to go to court on a civil infraction! Stupid! So then he went to the guy's house and asked him what he owed him, and the guy asked for $30. That's just great.

I babysat while Amanda worked and took the kids macaroni and cheese and cottage cheese. Emily fell asleep in her highchair and slept most of the time. I unloaded her dryer and started another load in the washer and dryer. Came home and watched All My Children and a Melissa and Joey.

September is here! Unfortunately, it was hot today and will be hotter tomorrow.  Supposed to cool down then.

Doug and Gary moved the Rodmans more today.  I had a snack wrap at McD for lunch.  I had to be at the school for the open house at 3:15 and worked until 6:30.  Then I drove through McD and had a hamburger!  Then on to my mother's.  Got home and got the flowers watered just before dark.  Gary isn't home from the revival yet.  He had to make macaroni and cheese with hot dogs.  His cousin, Barb, from Pennsylvania died yesterday.  I haven't had a chance to tell him yet.
