Good morning. Well, I did it!! I cut back my work hours again starting today. Now I'm going to be working just one night a week until I leave altogether. And that time just might be coming up really soon.
Last night the Mrs was really wicked. It got so bad that I had to call her family to tell them that either they come and talk to her or come and stay with her so I could leave. They chose to come and talk to her.
I had a chat with her son about how taking her out a couple times a week just might make her a little bit nicer to us. She always complains about feeling like a prisoner, never doing anything or going anywhere. She just sits and watches TV, eats and sleeps. She has three adult children who could probably take turns taking her out once in a while for an hour or so.
We even discussed the possibility of a day or two at a senior day care center each week to give the Mrs some new surroundings and things to do. There's also the senior center, where she could go once or twice a week for an hour or two to mingle with other people. Hopefully, her family will seriously consider some of these ideas.
On a positive note, we have lots of new bird families, and it's such fun watching the young birds learning from their parents. Here are some photos of one of the young blue jays. Isn't he just the cutest little kid?
Deanne is babysitting two of my great grandchildren this weekend, and we're planning to go out for breakfast this morning once the little ones are awake and dressed. I'm really looking forward to spending some time with the kids.
There was a bit of sunshine in the sky this morning on my way home from work, but now it's mostly cloudy. Hmmm, maybe we'll get a few sprinkles? That would be nice because our town has been having a problem with the town water source and has asked all the residents to please conserve as much water as possible all weekend. A few sprinkles would feel ever so good to the lawns and gardens.
That's about all the news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
