2012 August 21-28
We babysat with Lorelia and William. We took the kids with us when we attended the funeral of our daughter-in-law’s father. Then, after babysitting, we went to John and Dawn’s house for supper. Annika’s (former exchange student) arrived in
Moines in the evening and she went to Nathan &
Beth’s to stay while she’s here.
Free Pie day at Village Inn. Yep! That and the fact that I worked from 3:30 to 9 is the only thing I remember about Wednesday the 22nd.
Both Ella and I had the day off from work. We babysat Lorelia and William and visited with Annika. I took them to International House Of Pancakes (IHOP) for lunch. IHOP is one of Annika’s favorite places to eat.
I spent the morning at the VA Healthcare being reviewed for physical therapy and then having physical therapy. I have exercises to do at home and then will go to the VA twice a week for three weeks for additional therapy. Then I worked from 3:30 to 10 p.m.
Ella worked the clubhouse at Cutty’s from 1 to 11:30 p.m. due to a wedding and reception at the clubhouse. I went to our Saturday Praise Service at Union Park UMC. I had cooked anasazi beans in the crockpot all day and when I got home from church I added a lot of shedded carrots and shredded romain lettuce. I then took this to Ella for supper. I stayed with her at the clubhouse until she was off work.
I preached at Cutty’s and Ella worked the afternoon/evening shift
We both had the day off. Annika, Beth, Lorelia and William came for a visit and Annika got a tour of the Excel and the Hitch Hiker RVs. After they left for lunch with some friends, we took our paychecks to the bank. From there we went to Kmart on Hubbell to look for some pants for Ella. While she was looking for clothes, I checked out the vacuum cleaners. We still need a vacuum to take to
Texas in the Hitch
Hiker. Neither of us found anything
We took a drive through downtown
Des Moines, which we hadn’t done in a long
time, and stopped at the Salvation Army Store.
We didn’t find anything there that we needed. We stopped at Ryan’s Steakhouse for
lunch. We have been cutting way back on
our meat intake lately and eating more veggies.
However, at Ryan’s I had both chicken and pork on my plate before I even
considered veggies. After lunch we
stopped at another Kmart where we once again purchased nothing at all. On the way home we stopped at Wellspring Book
and Bible and bought a 3 CD set of hymns to give as a Thank You gift to
Teresa. Teresa has been our worship
music leader for the last two years at Cutty’s.
I worked the fee booth from 8 to 4:30. Ella babysat.
Wednesday 28th 7:15 a.m. I’m sitting typing this post.
I just returned from dropping Ella off at the doctor’s for an endoscopy. She has been having trouble swallowing. I have to leave for work as soon as I’ve posted this. I have only 7 days of work left this season. The last day being the 29th on the evening shift – the very last shift at the fee booth for the year.
