So much went on this past long weekend. The wonderful news is my FIL is much, much better. He has vasculitis and is on very strong steroids. He was out of the hospital on Thursday and left on vacation Friday. He is determined not to let cancer and all the of the health problems that go with it to stop him from living. While we all agree with his determinated spirit perhaps some down time would be in order. Den and I complained but it seems sometimes parents don't listen.
It isn't often that Den and I have nothing planned for a weekend. And I have to say that this will go down as one of my favorite weekends. It was nice to spend some time with him and not have to cook or rush to do anything. That said we did have a bit of company. My bestie needed a sitter for her pooch. I think Den liked having someone greet him at the door. Maybe I should jump on him the next time that he comes to the door.
copyright infringement farm stand for corn. I picked up this nifty little tree for $4. I think that I will paint it white and maybe hang some plants on it next summer.
I spent as much time as possible in the pool this weekend. In fact, I think that this was the most time I have been in the pool at one time since we have moved here in 20+ years!!!! I made a point for me time. I think I need to place that at the top of the to do list since I feel pretty
The sad news is our high school had the funeral for the slain Fox Lake police officer, Lt. Joe Gliniewicz. Fox Lake is our neighboring town and Antioch High school was the school that he graduated from. It is such a horrific crime but in all of the sadness, I have never seen this community pull together as it did. Nor have I ever been so proud to say that am from Antioch IL.
