After the dentist yesterday (good check-up, hooray), I went to the hospital. DS#2 hadn't slept much (no surprise, huh) so he drove one of their cars home and I stayed with DDIL and new GD. DDIL was suffering from "day after the C-section" I held the baby for almost 90 minutes while DDIL got some much needed sleep. Baby was fussy - apparently I have flunked Swaddling 101 because I kept wrapping her like we used to when my kids were little way back when. Baby Gabrielle is starting to recognize my voice - too cool. This is the first grandchild I have been able to spend time with right after birth. That is my wonderful.
Post afternoon nursing, DDIL said she would be okay if I left to pick up DS#2, so I first picked up DH, then DS#2, and we got back to the hosp... less

Heat advisory for today with high humidity. I won't be doing much in this case it's just too hard for me to breathe outside. Kids will play in the kiddie pool just about all day. They need to get some workbook time along with some reading time.
Bad time with my eyes last night not sure why I just had a shot and no lasers. I couldn't see much and my eye felt like it was poked. I thought I was going to be calling the office this morning but thankfully the feeling is gone this morning. I can't wait until we are finished with 4 months down and 8 to go. Then I will need cataract surgery which I hear is amazing with instant results.
I need to clean out the fridge today and get ready to do some grocery shopping. I have been bad with any kind of budget lately. My husband has been running to the store willy nilly every time I need something. I woke up this morning to only 1 tea bag. I really need to make a plan and ... less

I have a lot of kids . Not sure how we will keep them cool. I think that the younger ones will come home for a nap, then go to the pool. It will be sunblock day. lol
DH leave this atfernoon for Philadelphia. He will be gone til late Fri or early Mon. He hasnt decided which. I got his laundry done so he can pack.
Last evening, I canned green beans, picked blackberries. The birds are after the berrys. Today, I will bake a pie and freez the other berrys. No time to do anything else. Summer is so busy.. Garden is growing great. The squash bugs are here, killed a lot but know there are more. Hope they dont kill the cukes.
Keep cool if you are in the heat. Babs less

Oh lazy, hazy beach days. One of the most wonderful things about summer. And what’s a day at the beach without a cooler full of goodies?
But one must be strategic when it comes to packing food for the beach. Because at the beach, there is sand....
I recently provided a short webinar for a group called Talent Marks, and I was reminded of an important aspect of retirement planning that can sometimes be glossed over: your mortgage.
At the end of my webinar, the floor was opened for questions, and one participant asked if it was better...
Make the most of leftover meat by making a sandwich spread that's fit for a king! All you need is a food processor, a blender or a good knife and cutting board.
First, the meat. It could be a little leftover roast or chicken, turkey or ham... anything, really. Probably not fried fish, but a...
The Greek financial crisis may seem far away. And, depending on who you ask, it's either very simple or very complicated. Taken together that's a good reason not to pay much attention to it. That could be a mistake. There's a lot we can learn from the Greek debt crisis.
It can happen here. ...
