Thank you all for the well wishes for Seniors dad. Unfortunately his blood platelets were too high and they could not do the surgery. So we are on hold right now. Not sure when the operation will take place , or when Senior will be home. I miss him. : (
My sister said the Dr's. may want to wait another week to see if the platelet count goes up.
So that is the update, and that is where we stand.
The weather has again turned gloomy. The sun promises to return by Thanksgiving. One can only hope.
Today I worked more on the large mulch job for one of our communities. I loaded, poured, and spread 28 bags of red Cyprus mulch. Mostly around the trees by a retention pond. As I was working my way down the tree line it occurred to me that I was soon to run out...I got (at that time) 22 bags, I began counting...the helper person shorted me.. I took my handy receipt and went back..they were nice and told me to take the missing bags, plus I needed even more bags. I hate it when I either leave shopping bags in a store, or I get shorted by the person loading my truck up.
Then I came home, cranked up Seniors commercial hedge trimmers and trimmed our hedges, then I cranked up one of the blowers that always gives me a hard time and blew the debris off the driveway and walk way. Normally I end up flooding them out. But today I got them both on the first pull: "I AM WOMAN ...HEAR ME ROAR"! I felt so darn accomplished.
My neighbor across the street was leaving, she came over to chat for a few minutes. Depression set in when she told me she and her husband had signed a contract to have a new home built. : ( She is a good friend and you don't always get lucky with neighbors that are like family. In 6 months they will be going. : (
Today I got the surprise that school is closed on Wednesday. So I called the Parents.. " Want the boys to spend the night" ? they were all to ready to have them stay over. I need the time to clean house for Thanksgiving. Sunday I tried and every 15 minutes it was either a fight, or someone wanted something. and that was with a movie on. Besides, I could use the break. Movie and popcorn here I come.
Off Blogger for now, time to go start dinner, and await more news from Senior..
