The Morning After

Good Morning everyone. A bright sunny day it is...should be in the mid 70's, sunny all day and just a beautiful late spring day. And why is this so significant, you might ask? Well let me tell you why. LOL Yesterday it was gloomy, overcast, chilly, and rained most of the day. Even had a bit of thunder rolling overhead off and on. NOT the nicest day for an outdoor pool party/BBQ at all. So we ditched the pool part of it and moved Sara's graduation party to my parents house which is just down the road from my brothers place. It was obvious the pool was not going to be used and my father offered his garage and patio where we would at least have some cover and still be able to use the grill. We set up some tables on the patio, part of which is covered, filled the coolers and made the best of it all. We had a blast. It all turned out just fine but I was not that optimistic when I got up Saturday morning and saw the weather report. Sara was so happy to have everyone there and you couldn't wipe the smile from her face all day. OK so maybe those frozen fruity rum drinks I was making for her helped just a little bit. Anyway, it turned out to be a really fun day and my brother has offered to host our 4th of July bash in a few weeks. Hopefully the weather will co-operate and the pool will get some use.

Since we kind of invaded my parents house, I stayed behind and cleaned up. I had bought way too much food so I packed all the uncooked food back into my car and stuck it in my big freezer. I could have saved the money I spent on Coke and Pepsi products and bought more beer. I would not recommend getting a cake with any kind of blue in the frosting. That stuff stains. We were all walking around with blue lips and teeth and I still have a slight shade of blue on my fingers.
I am glad I have today to recover. By the time I got home last night, all I wanted to do was take a shower and hit the sheets.

I do have to run to the store later today to pick up some milk and get my prescriptions at the pharmacy. Eventually I will get dressed and do that but for now, I am content to sip my coffee and relax.

Back to work tomorrow. And back to the doctors in the afternoon to discuss the results from the bone density scan. I'm getting to the point where I really hate going there now and see these visits as nothing but a waste of time. I wonder if he can tell? LOL

Happy Sunday...hope you are all able to enjoy the day.

How did I miss this blog yesterday?? :(

Sorry to hear the weather wasn't the best, but I'm glad you all had a nice time. Especially happy to hear Sara enjoyed herself. That's the most important thing. (frozen fruity rum drinks? LOL) And I laughed when I pictured everyone walking around with blue lips and teeth...LOL.

Hope the test results were okay. Will await your next blog for more info.

Always be careful of the color of the icing on a cake. I was part of a 50th birthday (in a hospital unfortunately) but pieces with black frosting were handed out to all the nurses, and they all had black lips, tongues, and teeth for the rest of the day, lmao.

I hope everything went well at the doc's, please keep us up to date.

Oh the blue lips and teeth were crazy. My niece likes that gothic look and she said we all looked like her. The cake was delicious, but no one seems to want to finish it now.
