Oh, my dear SB. You have my heartfelt hugs and prayers. I hope the tests come out in your favour and if not, that there are easy measures they can take to make it well. Please know how much you are loved here.

I feel so bad for my mom. She just went through all of this with my now deceased sister 3 years ago. She is still living with us recovering from her back surgery. She is a wreck.

Will keep you all posted
Just to let you know I am thinking about you. Wishing you all the best. {{{Hugs}}} JoAnn

Yesterday afternoon our bedroom suite was delivered

When Steve got home from work it took us 2 hours to take the older bed apart, move it all into the garage, break up all the cardboard, put the new bed together, move all the bedside cabinets and the talboy from their boxes into place...OMG!

All this in 34 degree heat, air con was on, but you still get overheated doing this type of physical work

It is all setup now and it looks wonderful, it even makes the room look bigger for some reason, we are very happy...aching and sore, but happy!

We had quite a nice sleep last night, apart from the heat

Quite a sore lower back this morning but hopefully that improves during the day

It is going to be a disgusting week weather wise!

35c, 34c, 34c, 34c, 34c, 35c, 38c

Gee, so much to look forward to

Where is Autumn????

Lots to do today, hope everyone else has a productive day also

I'm sitting here watching a bizzare movie on TCM. Undecided if I'll see it through.
