The Boys of Summer are gone
We had a really good time yesterday. Mom, Bob, Meg, Jason, Matt, Magann, and Hailey came over for dinner. Steve grilled some really great filets and made his famous frog eye salad - which Hailey refuses to eat - so we had a good time. Everyone got to visit a bit, and be charmed by Hailey. That's what grandchildren are all about, right? Meg and Jason had to leave to go watch The Screamer, so we didn't get to play any games or anything. Mom and Bob stayed to watch that horrible movie about aliens invading Los Angeles. I've blocked the title out of my mind, it's not one of my favorite movies. I'm loving the cool weather, and I'm going to love it even more when I get a chance to adjust to it. For right now, it's cooler, which slows me down a little, but it feels so nice to just sit outside and read or just watch people go by. Today we had planned on going to the church picnic, but Mel called and as usual Missy didn't come home last night. She probably thinks Mel was off today, which she isn't, but how would you know that if you won't answer your phone, hmmmmm? Mel tried to call both Ray and Missy and they won't answer the phone. Sarah is home with him right now, but I'm leaving to go over and take care of dad for the afternoon. I thought about taking him to the picnic with us, but he's so unsteady on his feet again and I don't know where the picnic is in relation to the park, or where we would have to park the car, so I'm just going out to dad's. I don't mind really, but when you depend on someone to do something and they blow off their responsibility and expect others to cover, it pisses me off. I don't know why, I know Missy is the most irresponsible person on the planet, I should be used to it by now. I also think is miraculous how when she gets a shot when she's home with dad, she has to sleep for 24-36 hours, but when she gets a shot when she's at Ray's she can be out getting her hair done the next morning. I guess having someone else pay to have you hair done is very therapeutic.'m Looking forward to Hailey's party on Thursday. I can't believe that little stinker is going to be 2 already. Hard to think that it was a year ago she was smooshing chocolate cake into Matt's mouth while we celebrated her first birthday! Sue is in North Carolina for a couple days getting one of Magann's sisters settled, but she's planning on doing all the cooking for the party - I'm going to call her when she gets home and offer to do some of it - what a lot of work for one person!!! I'll post pics later, gotta run! Everybody have a wonderful fall day!
