back to school, back to work.

Nothing exciting going on here.  But it is really hot.  You would think it was August.

I have been walking for about an hour a day.  Today, I went at 6 am and it was really nice.  Last week, I walked after dinner, around 6 or so at night and it was still hot at that time.

Our none paying renter in Daddy's house move out yesterday.

Helen, the kids and I went to Coin Church this morning.  It has been about 3 weeks since I went with all that was going on.  Robert was so excite to get to go.  Not!  At one point when the preacher said we could sit, Robert said, 'finally.'  Sometimes I agree with Robert, but we are going anyway.  Hannah enjoys it and she gets to sing.  She is a good singer.

Anyway, back to school and work tomorrow.

Hannah and Robert have company. The three kids that did live next door are visiting and staying the night.  They are having lots of fun.  Hannah and the girl went shopping with Aunt Helen and the boys are here doing what boys do.  One last weekend before school starts Monday.

George has been doing pretty good since he got home.  He feels better than he has in  a long time.  He goes back to the Dr the 27th.  I think they will do an Xray and see if what his lungs look like.  For now, he is better and we are glad.

George is home

and feeling much better.  He has 2 antibiotics and a steroid to take for a week or so.  For now he feels better than he has all summer.  He just could not shake that infection.  I am hoping this will take care of it.  He will go back to the dr in two weeks.

has not been feeling well all summer.  Friday night I took him to the ER.  He is in the hospital with pneumonia.  He is much improved today and may get to go home tomorrow.  He had been to the clinic several times this summer with pneumonia or other breathing problems.  I think he just has not been able to get rid of the original infection from back in May or June.  Hopefully, this time it will clear up completely.  At least right now he is much improved.

The Pond

Is clearing up, thanks to Marvin and his Marvelous Weed B Gone.

Almost no green, only reddish brown.

There is a little algae left around that willow tree on the far side.  George and Greg are hoping the will dies, but I like it.

I went to the Dr.yesterday just for a checkup.  I have thought I probably had high blood pressure, and now I have blood pressure meds.  I have to go back in two weeks to see if it is working.

I went back to work today.  We were snowed under all day.  We have an audit next week, so it will not get better until the end of next week at least.

Not much news.  It is hot again.

Kids start to school in two weeks.
