A break in the heat...

Since friday it has rained steadily here. It started when our old roof was off and the new one was partially on! It was a deluge and we had a few leaks until the roofers did some temporary tarping. I guess they didn't watch the weather channel that day! Finally they came back the next day during a break in the rain and finished. It looks really nice.

It has been nice to have a lot of needed rain and to have our high temperatures be in the low 70's.

We finally got our dishwasher installed and working properly. It took a few days because some parts that were supposed to come with the dishwasher either got lost or weren't in the box. I was so excited doing the first load of dishes since I hadn't had a dishwasher for the last 3 years.

My Dad called and said my Mom got a good checkup at the doctor-she had even gained a few pounds. She finally started using a wheelchair when shopping so she hasn't been so tired and run down when she gets home.

Bon Voyage Ginger!
She is off to see one of the American Idol concerts. She has met more famous people this year than you can shake a stick at! I think she has become a groupie!

I blame Georgianna for getting me hooked on Adult Swim. Especially Family Guy and Futurama. I will not admit that I watch Robot Chicken since it is so tasteless that I can't quit laughing at it!

I hope everyone had a great weekend :)

We've been having the same system in Missouri;and problems with the roof in the kitchen, too! But that's what comes when you have an old house. We recently purchased a new dishwasher, and had to do some of the rigging ourselves--but it works! I've had a dishwasher in several houses--it's just none of them ever worked.
I know it's really hard for a lot of people to accept using a wheelchair--both of my folks refused--but it really is a better solution. Love and good vibes!
