As I continue along with the Blog Everyday in May challenge....Today's prompt is:
What’s on your plate?
Instead of telling you what I am eating right now...(I am drinking my morning coffee and trying to hurry Richard along. Anyone who deals with a person who has dementia knows that the more you try to hurry them, the slower they go) I am going to tell you that this has been a 'full-plate week.' On Monday I took Darian downtown to order his hoodie for Scout camp, buy a new pair of running shoes and ordered his new glasses. then he had a Scout meeting that evening. Yesterday the kids' oldest sister, Katie, was visiting from South Carolina so she came to take the kids to lunch and visit with granny and papa for a very short period of time. So hard to get a young girl (she's 23) to sit for long when there are so many people to see in the short time she is here. Then we mowed the grass. And last night was Dancing With The Stars finale so we certainly had to work that in. We were thrilled with who one. They were our favorites from the beginning. After that was over Darian and I took the car and filled it with gas, checked the oil, and the air in the tires as we are going out of town today.
Today I need to get Richard showered and shaved and dressed in 'real' clothes. For tonight is Paige's 8th grade graduation in a town about 55 miles from here. We are going to her house first for a cook-out. This is going to be the first big trip for Richard in over 2 years. I am anxious, to say the least, to see how it goes. And he is taking his time eating and reading the paper....
Tomorrow, a health clinic near us, is offering $20.00 school physicals from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Darian needs his physical completed for Boy Scout camp (he leaves May 31) and I wasn't able to get him into his own doctor. So it is a come and wait your turn kind of thing. I plan on dropping him off and picking him up. He can call me when he gets close to the front of the line.
Then on Friday, we have company coming from Oklahoma for the weekend (they are staying in a motel so it won't upset our schedules as much). I am looking forward to their visit. And I am also getting my house painted and the painter wants to start working on it this weekend....
I told you MY PLATE IS FULL.
Let's head over to Live Happy Daily and link up with others. Tell me what is on your plate? You can talk about food if you'd like.
