Today, is day 3 of rain. :-(
I am definitely ready for it to leave!
My IV medication visit in NYC went well. Thank you for all the good wishes and prayers! They worked! My IV went in easily in my right arm and this month, no blood draws! YAY!
Later that afternoon, we went to the town pool as a family, and a great time! We joined the night before, and this is our first time joining in about 5 years.
This is the same pool that I lived at when I was a kid, all summer long. I also swam the swim team there, too. It is fun sharing the memories of my years there with the kids now, as they make new memories of their own.
On Thursday and Friday, I brought the kids there myself, and they were a great help bringing in the chair and towels and beach bag, and getting it out.
Friday night, the rain started, at about 8 pm; we had left the pool at 7 pm... it was good timing.
Since then, the rain hasn't stopped for very long, and the skies have been gray and dark. The whole weather system has wreaked havoc on my joints, but I am feeling pretty good since my medication on Wednesday.
Today, my cousin and her hubby dropped off her two boys for me to watch until Wednesday afternoon! We all had a nice family visit and dinner. My dad made a fabulous homemade meat sauce and raviolis. Magnifico!
My kids are so excited to have their cousins here for the next few days! The eldest is the same age as Fuzzy and youngest is the same age as Pumpkin! Hammer has a great time with them both, too. It will really be a fun time for all!
Three days, five kids... hopefully, the rain stops!
As long as the weather permits, the plans are to do the town pool and the arts & crafts program in our park. If I get desperate, I will do a movie, but fingers and toes are crossed for the rain to let up! Movies are so expensive now!
Then, Wednesday my cousin is planning on coming as early in the day as she can to visit with me, which is always nice. The kids can still spend time together and we will all do dinner together, too.
The kids settled down nice tonight, and everyone was sleeping by 10:30 pm! Can't complain about that at all!
Libby got her stitches out Friday, and her leg has been prounounced officially healed! Yay!
That catches you all up to date with me!
I am still having a hard time getting around to all the journals I want to visit... be patient with me, dear j-landers!
