This is a picture of my backyard facing South. Hubby has some fence building to do! Barb-wire and t-posts were fine with me but hubby is wanting to go all out and pipe fence the entire perimeter of the pasture around the house and yard. I hope he doesnt ask me to help paint it. I do not like painting, anything. I offered to mow the yard today for him but I am still not allowed to drive the lawn mower. Its terribly hot, hubby has been working in this gawd awful heat and moving, so I am trying to pick up as much slack as I can (with Toddler Terror). Ive got almost everything unpacked and put into its proper place with the exception of son #1’s bedroom. I need hubby to hook up all of his playstation 2 and X-Box games to his TV. I also have to hang 1 picture and his corkboard before we leave to pick him up in MI. But I did get his curtains hung and his bed is all set up and made up the way he likes it. I hope he keeps his closet neat and orderly like I have it fixed.
My oldest and favorite sister J. called yesterday to tell me they are having cooler weather in N.MI. I cannot wait to get there in a week and a half. She asked me if hubby and I had anything special we wanted to see/do other than our family reunion on the Island (BIG party!). After I hung up and thought about it, I need to tell sister J., I need a mandatory 24 hours at a beauty spa because all of this moving has mangled my manicure, pedicure, my eyebrows need a waxing, not to mention other parts as well! My hair needs trimmed and a root job, I am sporting a funky tank top farmers tan with sock lines to match from wearing tennis shoes. Yeah, I know, I am scary! I mentioned this to hubby and he said I looked just fine….I think he needs glasses!
Calvacade is in full swing and all of my roundup club buddies are camping out. I think they are crazy for doing it in this heat. But, when I was in my twenties, I was out there competing and whooping it up everyday and all nite. I am planning on going one day and taking my camera for some good pictures. I am not taking the Old Guy, it is just too hot to be riding him around just to be horseback. Its also to damn hot to be hauling any horse up to the fairgrounds if I am not competing. Besides, I always know someone with an extra horse to ride. I am going to try and go either friday or saturday nite, thats the best times to go, maybe it’ll be a tad bit cooler…but I doubt it.
Yesterday I had to take Wee One to the doctor again. He was complaining about his left ear and his rash had cameback. I was afraid he was going to give himself an infection scratching at it. He also had a temp of ’99 degrees. He saw a new doctor because his regular physician was busy with an emergancy. This MD sent him over for bloodwork. Wee one had 2 big vials of blood drawn and he sat very still and didnt cry or holler once, just a wimper when the tech stuck him with the needle. She was a good tech, fast and it was over before we knew it. Now Wee One has to take 2 medicines by mouth, ear drops 4X a day, 1 creme and 1 ointment. I am spending a lot of time doctoring the poor little guy. I have just about had it with Indian Health. Hubby is going to talk to the secretary friday and see if we can get Toddler Terror added to his insurance. I want to make sure he wont be denied any coverage because of a prexisting condition. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma seems to be pretty decent about picking up stuff like that. I would prefer to speak to thier insurance rep myself, I still have my Oklahoma licenses for Work Comp and Commercial Liability. They do not expire until September. I doubt I’ll renew them again, a waste of money.
I am cooking a big pan of lasagne for dinner. It should last 2 days so I can be busy doing other things. I’ll probly be gone again for a day or 2 taking care of business. I hope to have some good pictures to post next time!
