Every Day

The Stress is Gone

My son was operated on at 10PM on Friday night. That was one day after I wrote to you last about it. Surgeries were stacked and the waiting was so stressful. The reason I was so worried is that he had never had an operation before so he had never been put out under general anesthesia.

I just wanted to let you know that everything went well and he is home recuperating.

Between that, the medical issues here and my spring cleaning, it has been very stressful especially because I am not at 100%. But I am doing the best I can.

However, I am slowly getting back into the swing of things. I actually have a small Walmart order coming this morning. It is so much easier for me to just order it and have it delivered. I ordered a lot of tissues( we both have spring colds now), Easter baskets and candy for the grandchildren, and soda and snacks for my family for Easter weekend.

For the first time in years, my entire family will be here for Easter dinner. I am so very excited. Plus I will be having fun putting the grandchildren’s baskets together. I realize they are both teenagers but they still love candy.

I plan on cooking the last turkey in the freezer that I bought for cheap at Thanksgiving for Easter dinner. That will give me more room in the freezer to stock on steaks around Memorial Day. There should be some good deals to be gotten.

The bedrooms are all neat and ready for my son and granddaughter who live in the Eastern part of NY. We have not seen them since a couple of days after Christmas. Way too long to go without seeing them. But it is hard for us to travel now and my son has a busy schedule with his business and his regular job. So we are going to have to rely on him coming here.

After my Walmart delivery comes, I am going to go to Top’s. I do have instacart so I could have it delivered but I like to pick out my own meat. They have a lot of chicken on sale this week for $ .99 a lb. So I am going to get a few big packs of it. We love chicken grilled outside in the nice weather. So I want to add to what I already have and get enough to get us through the summer. I spent some time going through the freezer yesterday to see how much I already have( we have been eating it since I took inventory and that has not been updated).

I wanted to let you know that since I am just getting back on my feet, I will only be posting 3 times a week. I believe that I can keep up with that. We’ll see.

Hi Precious, I am so happy Sean is doing well and that you are feeling well enough to write some too. I am happy anytime you can write. 🙂

It made me so happy to see that all of your family is able to come for Easter. I know it has been awhile since you have all been together. Hubby and I are planning to go see our elderly parents over Easter also.

The little girls are out of town this week on a short spring break getaway with their parents so I have a little break. But we are keeping their dog (who is needy LOL!) and looking in on their cat. I am hoping to get some work done in the basement this week while they are gone organizing the toys. I got a cabinet from our local buy nothing group to help.

The Kroger ad preview was posted and the turkey breasts are going to be on sale for 1.79/lb, limit 5, starting Wednesday. So I will get some for the freezer. Was hoping for a better price, but that will have to do.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the good wishes for Sean and myself. I am happy when I am able to write. It has always been my passion since I was in 1st grade. So If you don’t see me on here, you will know that I just am not able to.

I am happy that you are going to see your parents. I know they love to see you. Yes, we are thrilled that we are all going to be together.

Enjoy that organizing. I always do. This time though I am getting rid of anything that we really don’t need. If one of us dies, I don’t want to have the other have to get rid of a lot of unnecessary stuff. Nor do I want to have my kids have to take care of it. I also want to make sure that Hubby can find things if I am not around.

Enjoy your animal pet sitting. I always enjoy when Hotch, Ludo, or Nori visit.

Not a bad price on those turkey breasts!

So very glad that Sean’s surgery was a success and he is resting and healing
Yay for having the whole family for Easter you must be so happy!
What a fantastic deal on chicken
Still waiting on the electric bill…can’t. wait.
