Last week I remembered why I put up with Wisconsin winters, we had a couple of days of glorious spring weather, almost venturing to the hot side. Not that we've had a hard winter this year, in fact spring plants are running 2-3 weeks early it seems. Thursday while Mom took Igor to the petting farm I started weeding my massive flower bed. That thing drives me to distraction. I have seriously been threatening to pull it out and plant some grass, however Hubby is against it as it's one of the few beds we can actually see from the house and when the flowers get really rolling I have to admit it's a showpiece even when full of weeds. So, I climbed in a weeded, and weeded, and weeded, and weeded... you get the picture. I then moved a few plants around to better spots and tried to decide just what the heck to plant as I'm a tightwad and don't want to fill the thing up with annuals and all their fuss yearly. Hubby has promised to help with the care of that monster this summer, but we'll see how that goes.
Currently, I have Mom out hitting the local stores putting in applications for cashiers/clerks that kind of thing. I'm pretty sure she sees this as a step down in the world but when you have NO income, even minimum wage starts sounding pretty good. I'm not sure if she can handle being on her feet for too long - she's came a long way since she got here in that arena - but I figure a week of two of misery and she'll shape up quickly. I keep telling her this doesn't have to be a forever job, just a J.O.B. until something better comes along. I also think she needs something that gets her out of the house and around people other than the kids and I, plus I need my space a little too!
Hubby is currently on his way home from Louisville. Luck would have it that one of his cousins was hitting town for some training for his job and they met up last night for supper and visiting. I know Hubby gets more than bored on these trips eating alone and such and spending time with a cousin he doesn't get to see too much of was probably really good for him.
Tomorrow FIL goes for more testing. Hopefully, they'll be some medical miracle or screw-up there and they'll figure out some less dire diagnosis.
Best Man (mentioned in last post) contacted Hubby and his new baby is doing very well. She's off the vent and starting to grow. Hopefully they'll be able to bring her home sooner than later.
Well that's all the news that's fit to rattle about.
