Wishing everyone a great weekend especially those fellow Canadians who are about to enjoy our first long weekend of the summer. Yeah for Victoria Day weekend.
We have no special plans just hope to get some work done outside if the weather is nice. The black flies are heading in which impacts our ability to get too much done outside if they are bad. We haven't had much of a problem the last 2 yrs so not sure what to expect this year. The boats have started out on the lake. We may put our in next week if DS2 comes up on Tues & the weather cooperates.
DH seems to be having problems this year. I guess turning 61 is making a difference but he was saying that cutting the lawn on the 4 acres did him in today. He does have one of the fancy dancy lawn trackers. I think part of it is his approach. He should stagger his chores but he does too much at one time, then can't do anything for a couple of days. I'm not a fan of gardening & have offered to cut the lawn but apparently it's a difficult task. Oh well, I can always read while he works. lol
DD had us on standby for the baby last Tues but it was a false alarm. She has been having terrible pain in her upper back & chest since last Sat morning. On Mon she couldn't breath & so they rushed into labour & delivery even though she was sure she wasn't in labour. They checked her out, said that she is experiencing muscle pain & to apply heat while resting. Then she started to have more regular & stronger contractions on Tues & her OB told her during the regular visit that maybe things were starting. No such luck. Poor woman is exhausted from not sleeping due to the pain & is now at the stage where she just wants the baby out. Her due date is June 2nd. I suspect the problem is that it's a big baby & she isn't a big girl. She hasn't put on any weight in the last mth & so has only gained 28 lbs. Her dr told her she could gain 35 as she is very tall. Again, hard to feel like eating when you are in pain. I never experienced any pain like she is having. Lots of muscle pain in lower back & stomach area which makes sense.
What's new with everyone? Dee
