It is 9:45 am here on the east coast, so I am surprised I'm posting before Diane. I hope things are going well with DH and getting ready for the replacement windows.

Justice enjoyed the dog beach yesterday though as usual he was a little intimidated by the large dogs. All were friendly but my little ten-pounder gets a bit nervous. At one point a very large dog (70-80 pounds probably) tried to play with Justice and Justice bared his teeth while every hair on his back stood up and his tail was curled against his belly. The dog assumed Justice would want to play because he apparently frequently plays with a chihuahua. But Justice did his share of sniffing the small dogs and some of the medium ones. The beach was quite crowded with humans and dogs - you have to expect a potential shower of water or sand periodically - LOL.

I am tired as I had poor sleep again last night because of a call from DH's facility. DS went over to calm his Dad, but I guess some people were feeling threatened by him because he pushed against one and was getting in another's face and moving his hands around in their face. The latter is how he tries to talk sometimes these days. I was thinking about it and I bet if he was a woman or a short man, they wouldn't feel bothered as much, but DH is 6'2" and I think his physical size makes them more leery. Regardless, he still is very anxious and not sleeping or sitting still much. The doctor did restart an older medication last week so either it hasn't started working yet or isn't going to help (hopefully the former).

I am not sure what I am doing today. Maybe a little pool time and I might have dinner with a friend. The weather is supposed to be great for my last three days in Florida.

Have a mainly good Monday!

I hope you are able to enjoy your next few days and relax and do as you please before you head home to be the solver of problems.

It is snowing here. I'm hoping it stops as predicted in the next hour so I can drive out to my parents house and bring them the food I've made this morning. Finishing up the broccoli cheese soup as I write. I'm so glad I decided to take this sick day, I feel better prepared to take on all that is coming.

Hope everyone is doing okay, it's been quiet here!

Sometimes mental health days were more needed and necessary than sick days...

Truthfully speaking most of mine taken were of the mental health variety. Not sorry.

Not much going on here. Waiting on some new led lights to decorate my tree. They'll be here tomorrow. I've been organizing and cleaning out some piles. There is a little built in desk in my kitchen than has been a junk repository for years, so that got cleaned out. Well, at least the parts that show, not the drawers yet. It was like an archeological dig with layers going back years. It felt good to clean it out!

Aside from that it looks like a few weeks of sun here coming up. Maybe the hills will start to green up.

Today I have lunch with a friend and more cleaning out to do.

Just saw the news--Were you anywhere near the volcano that erupted on White Island in New Zealand? Lives lost during a tourist guided walk. Sad. Seems there was some advanced indications that were basically ignored.

No, we were on the west side of the south island. The eruption was on an island off the east coast of the north island. Sounds like it was a place that tourists shouldn't have been allowed...

Cleaning places long accumulating stuff is always daunting but so satisfying to accomplish. I wondered about whether you had been near the volcano as well. It did sound like it was a risky place to be in the first place though the visitors likely didn't realize that.

Exactly! I would also have assumed if a cruise company offered me an excursion to a place like that it would be safe. I imagine Royal Caribbean is going to be in for some big lawsuits.

PS - you have a really good son, Liz. What a caring man you and DH raised!
