Summer is gone!

Summer is officially gone. Labor Day Weekend has come and gone. We were looking forward to having a long weekend but were so busy that we didn't even get to sleep in at all.

Friday evening: *T* went to help with bingo and *M* and *C* came down to visit while he was gone. *C* sat and watched t.v. while *M* helped me set up a myspace account. I'm not sure why I'm having such a hard time getting it the way I want it. I have always heard about this myspace thing, but never really paid too much attention to what it really is or how to use it. I'm sure I'll get it but it'll be a while...

Saturday: I had to be to work at 6 a.m. and *T* had to go sit with our elderly neighbor at 8 a.m. When I got home it was nearly 5 p.m and *T* was mowing the lawn. I noticed that he had gotten the apple tree that fell in the back yard cleaned up and had also mowed down all the blackberry bushes that were behind the garage. I've been wanting to get them mowed for a couple of years, so I could start them over. The canes had gotten so big that I couldn't get to the berries when they were ripe... so the bushes were just taking over the back lawn for no reason.

*M* had invited us to a cook out at her house and said that they would be eating around 5 p.m. but when I got home she had left a message saying it would be closer to 6 p.m. before they would be eating. Since I didn't get home until nearly 5 p.m. and *T* was still mowing I was glad to here that. We got to *M*'s house around 7 p.m., ate, chatted a bit, and came home just about dark. Did chores and went to bed.

Sunday: I was up early... *T* had volunteered me to make scalloped potatoes for a pig roast we were invited to. I asked him how he knew that I could make scalloped potatoes ... I have not made them since we've been together... he just smiled and said "honey.... you are a hellofagood cook... you can do it!". So, I was busy peeling and slicing enough potatoes to fill a 12"x17"x2" baking pan, and trying to get them cooked by noon. I finally got them cooked and we got to the pig roast around 1 p.m. We had a really good time, and stayed longer then we had planned... <<<>>>...
Came home watched movies and went to bed.

Monday: I woke up early. While I was trying to get some laundry done mom came over to say that the neighbor's daughter just called her and wanted us to go check on her father because she had been trying to call and no one was answering. *T* went to check and called back to say no one was home.... HHHMMMM... did he run away????.... the man can hardly walk, let alone run. Come to find out the lady who had been with him during the night had taken him to *S*'s house and he was waiting for his daughter to get home to go get him. *T* and I were also waiting for the daughter (*C*)... she had asked if we would help her unload her moving van when she got here... the only problem.... the reason she was trying to call her dad to begin with was because the moving van broke down and she wasn't going to be here when she thought she would. She was somewhere near the PA/OH border and had to wait for a mechanic from Ohio to come help. After a while *T* got to thinking and called *C* back and had her try something else to get the van started.... it worked. So she ended up getting here a little after 3 p.m. instead of noon. By the time we got the van unloaded and got back home it was after 7 p.m. We both had to be to work early (*T* at 4a.m. and me at 6a.m) so it was off to bed again.

And the weekend was GONE!

Today it was back to work as usual... Up at 3:15 a.m. make *T* lunch, see him off to work by 3:35 a.m. I went back to bed until 5:15 a.m. then got up and went to work at 6 a.m.
