We survived our hottest days of the year so far and me, well hell I loved it. Both days it got over 100 degrees on our back deck, and that thermometer is in the shade on the porch part. So hot it was. I of course didn’t let mama outside, no way. I got her up earlier, chatted with her through breakfast and lunch, then around 2pm put her in her room. Well not “put” dang that sounded cruel didn’t it? I settled her in her room, tv on, fan on, nice and cool and she was SAFE!!!! That’s when I headed to the pool!! I am working my way up to the 25 laps that I was at last year, but whew, it’s tough. But honestly I floated away, relaxed, no worries and just enjoyed the day. The heat didn’t bother me at all when I was floating. I did get a tad red, okay alot red but it is all ready turning to brown. Bryce and Ashley told Ron don’t worry in a few days we will have “Gramjemima” back again. Nice kids huh?
I also had to go buy a new phone. Apparently there was more wrong with my old one than just replacing the battery. Hahaha I chuckled when I tossed the new phone into the cart. I could hear everyone bitching me out , blah blah blah. Know why? Tee hee I got the exact same phone!!! Can’t help myself I love my phone, it’s the stainless steel look, plus the hand set is the perfect size. I swear some of the hand sets are smaller than a cell phone and I can’t have that. When I am gabbing on the phone it’s normall cradled on my shoulder while I am puttering around. Either getting dinner, switching out and folding laundry, helping mama etc, so I need the perfect “fit.” So I was right to chuckle. I never said anything hooked up the new phone then I finally asked if they liked my new phone. Oh geeze, they were looking all over the place for it, hahahaa I was loving it. I think it was Ashley that finally realized it was the same and she started the ripple effect of “What the heck?” ” Why did you get the same piece of crap?” etc. I’m happy with it so it’s all that counts!! 🙂
On the way home from my phone purchase I stopped at the lumber yard and got three pieces of plywood. Our solar panels for the pool were so saggy looking and I knew if they stayed that way a; the sun wasn’t hitting all of them and b; yikes what if they broke? So got that and Greg helped Ron put them under the panels. OH WOW what a huge difference that made. Nice straight panels, no ripples and nice warm water flowing into the pool, yeah that’s what I am talking about!!!! They are up the way they are supposed to be, amazing huh??? 🙂 It’s only been what 3 yrs Kelly? Remember you out here helping us get them up??? I think it’s been 3 or maybe 2 years. Whatever it’s been way too long and all I can say is it’s about time they are the way they should be.
Didn’t do my wii fit yesterday, way too hot in the house. We don’t have the luxury of central air, hell normally we don’t need it. We do have an air conditioner for the main part of the house, but then it’s fans galore throughout, so too hot to exercise yesterday. Today I will have to get my buns in gear before the heat hits once again. Right now it’s in the 80’s so it’s okay to work out. I am bound and determined to shed 10#’s , then after I hit that goal, I will set another 10# goal, then I might be happy, will have to wait and see.
My favorite camera is wigging out on me, oh NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! When I went to take a picture yesterday it whirred, shook and shit I thought it was going to explode!!!! I thought maybe the hot sun, so brought it inside, then Ashley tried it. On regular setting it video’s, on video setting it video’s , how do I snap a still photo????? So I took the battery out hoping it would re-set. This morning nope still wigging out. I did hit one setting and got a still pic, then it went back to being goofy. I love this camera, it’s compact and comes with me everywhere I go. Now I have 4 others but you know how it is when you get a favorite, right? So I am hinting extremly hard to hubby at how much I need a COMPACT camera. I am shameful when it comes to cameras so yep I am “using” mama right now. Saying how I can’t carry my other ones when we go out and my purse, plus push the wheel chair. How mama does so many cute things that I NEED to have my camera with me at all times. How mama is special and I can never get enough pictures of her. See I am shameful but dang it I NEED a compact camera and, like the phone, want the EXACT same one. Tee hee. But I think first I may just send this in and hopefully it can be fixed. BUT yeah alway a BUT!! While its being fixed ( hopefully) I will still need a compact camera, right? I will badger, hint, rant and rave until I have a working camera. Hubby’s day off is tomorrow so mmmmmm he should head to the store before his morning coffee!!!!!!!!! He has to remember “If I’m happy , he’s happy” hahahaha I know I am bad , but hey a girl has to do what a girl has to do!!!!
