First of all I thought it was “dribble” not “drivel” – didn’t you?  Thank heavens I looked up the meaning because I would have been so embarrassed to have used the wrong word on this riveting post. (insert sarcastic emoji)

I posted this family picture last week on my cover page on Facebook.  And then I saw that my profile face covered Rachel – OMG.  How awful was that? Both funny and awful.  I mean one might think it was intentional, but believe me I love that girl (Rachel) – she fits right in to our cray cray family.

The visit from the kids was beyond wonderful (Did I talk about this already?) Their visits are much too short and I was running around like a lunatic the whole time but I think they still enjoyed their visits.  Especially Zachary who stayed with his girlfriend at a beachfront resort. What’s not to love there?  Zach thanked me for moving to Florida. I think that’s a good thing (so he can visit.)

And now I’ll just look forward to April when we shall meet up again in Pittsburgh while I’m still on my sabbatical.

I’ve been busy, lazy and sick.  I was bragging to Jimmy that I don’t have Kleenex boxes everywhere like we used to (he was looking for them during his visit) because I never get sick and I never get a cold. (he had a bad cold when he got here) Florida is not a place where your nose is always running, or so I boasted.  And then this happened:

Okay actually I staged that.  But my point is I’m sick as a dog.  Not the flu but so much stuffiness.  I caught what Phil had.  We blamed it on Jimmy at first but I think Phil got his from work and then shared with me, which is okay because we share everything (right honey?) I’ve had to cancel all my hospice visits.  I did get my nails done today, I guess I don’t care as much if I get them sick.   They kept bringing me cough drops and she told me to go home and rest.  I “feel” okay but I sound awful.

I’m finally on the manicure circuit, after 57 years.  Remember a blog last year where I brought up the age old question….to manicure or not?   I’ve always been a pedicure girl but in the past manicures just weren’t me.  And now they are, since they came up with gel that doesn’t chip. ( as suggested above,riveting subject matter) I did some internet research today on color combos.  They say it’s not “hip” to be matchy matchy so I went with these two colors.  I got a woot woot from Zenah. I guess that’s good.


And that’s enough of that.

Lacrosse season for our girl has started and I’m back to keeping stats.  It’s not easy.  We can’t see the players numbers, I don’t know the rules, by the time I find the little circle bubble to fill out that someone got a ground ball I’ve missed 10 other things.   I need Sally to help me come up with a different method. I think it’s the bubbles that are hard to find on the page, hard to fill in and well, there’s got to be a better way. …and I’m gonna figure it out….dammit…

That’s it.  That’s all I got.  Unless you want to know that I ordered a new Lacrosse t-shirt so I can show my team spirit (I’m such a resident now), I need to make an appointment on Thursday to get new tires and new brakes, I have blood work being done on Thursday to check my cholesterol and I need a new purse.  I noticed today my purse handle is frayed.  We can’t have that now can we?  (Right Philip?) Probably should wait until after the brakes. (and no I don’t have 20 other purses in the closet (cough, lie, cough)

That’s it.  So worth the wait, right?
