Summer begins!

We did it! We actually got through another school year and now Mimi is officially a ninth grader. I am so proud of her. Even though I didn't think we would make it (I feel that way every year). Her evaluator was very happy with her progress and really enjoyed the displays Mimi made to demonstrate what we had learned this year!

When it's too hot to play it becomes naptime!

What's better on a hot day than a Coke Icee?

Johnny is doing very well these days. His Bp is running very steady as is his weight and sugar. Of course the heat is causing some problems as he wants to be outside on the weekends with the guys but the last week or so we have had rain everyday so we've been kept indoors. Watching tv and napping are the order of the day.

I think he has 2 dr. appts next week. One with Pulmonary dr. and one with Cardio. Hopefully the results will be good. He continues to take his meds regularly and steady and is no longer suffering the nausea he was having trouble with. All in all not much to report these days. Sissie is having some trouble with her fibro as it comes and goes in waves. Right now the swelling in her legs are also worrisome but getting her to a dr. is almost impossible. She seemed a little better today. Still no word on the Disability but we are keeping our fingers crossed that they don't encounter any problems with it.

Mother is still with us and will be for a few more weeks. Dad got the new AC unit ordered but it won't ship until July 23 (heck he won't need it by then as it will almost be winter!) so she will continue on with us. She sleeps alot during the daytime. She and Johnny watch the ID channel alot so they should both be experts on crime. Having her here now is alot easier than in the beginning as we have all gotten into a sort of routine. She does still tend to want to rule the roost which is natural I guess. I have had to remind her only a couple times that this is my house and by golly if I want to cool the outside then I will do so or stand with the refrigerator door open and stare at the contents, then I will.

However, the closer it gets to her going back home, Sissie and I are realizing that maybe it would be better to keep her here as she seems to be doing much better. We will see.

For today's bit of trivia:

In 1899, Jacob German, a New York cabbie was the first motorist to be arrested for speeding.
The speed he was going was 12 mph. The arresting officer was on a Bicycle!
