Catching Up

It has been a couple of weeks since I have posted anything. It has been a busy time for us. We had agreed to watch a friend's children while she took a Maymester course. We started out watching an 11 month old and a 3 year old, both girls. After public school ended, this increased by one 7 year old girl. They are delightful children. They all have huge blue eyes and the 3 year old smiles all the time. The 11 month old crawls everywhere.............really fast! After watching them in the afternoon we could come home exhausted. Not that the kids were bad just that we are older. We did enjoy them though. They kinda stole our hearts.

During the babysitting gig, Sarah had her surgery. We took a couple of days off and went back to baby sitting. She just couldn't pick up anything heavier than 10 pounds.

The last visit to the doctor was last Thursday. We drove down. Saw the PA. Everything looked good. We had lunch did a little shopping, stopped at a farmers market and headed home to help with organizing for the church yard sale. We went to the church that evening to help. Worked for a little while and came home.

On Saturday a friend was having surgery and we had promised to stay with him until the surgery was over and the decision was made whether he would go home that night or the next morning. He was released that night. We helped his wife get him home (he had knee surgery) and got him settled. Then headed back to the church to finish helping get things ready for the yard sale (I personally hate yard sales but some of the ladies enjoy it and we usually do make some money). We got home about 10:30 p.m. in a stupor of fatigue.

The next morning it was up at 6 a.m. to be at the church by 6:30 a.m. I had a slight revolt on my hands when the clock went off. Sarah refused to get up and she is the morning person!! We finally got ourselves together and got to the church. The two ladies who are yard sale enthusiasts were there ready and waiting for customers to come. The did start coming about 30 minutes later. It was a fair yard sale. Sarah swears never again every year.

We got through with the yard sale at 2 p.m. and had to be at an adoption party at 5 p.m. We made it and it was a glorious celebration.
