I find myself wasting a great deal of time online ... looking at Ancestry.com for more genealogical hints that I know aren't there. :-)   And being hypnotized by my Facebook news feed ... really there's nothing earth shattering there but I still look as there are ALWAYS new posts.  :-)

I have scrapbook pages to get done.  But I'm not feeling the inspiration to layout any pages.   I've made a few more face masks for DD#1 and DD#2 but need to dredge up the energy to find a box, pack it and mail it.  Ugh.

Don't talk to me about housework.  Ugh.   When we cleaned out the garage (AND IT'S STILL CLEAN AND ORGANIZED!!), I produced a BIG pile of useful stuff that I had earmarked for thrift stores ... but they remain closed.  Mr Pirate has started making comments on how the pile in  front of the garage is starting to irritate him ... and I fully disagree.  I would just feel very badly if these items went to the dumps instead.  :-(

On an academic level, I really do want to restart my daily walks.  But ... oh, you knew that was coming, right?  .. the weather continues to be too warm for that.  I'm not that much of a masochist to want to go for a walk in too-warm weather.

Over all, I have a big case of the "meh".  Complete blah.  I think about doing some longarm quilting, to get a UFO completed .. but then think that those scrapbook pages aren't going to get done by themselves.

There's a reason why we just languish during the Dog Days of Summer.  But this year we also have extra reasons.  I'll surface again when it's cooler.  LOL

So far they found out that her kidneys are not working so they had to drain her until just a few minutes ago they put in a catheter and hopefully that will work instead of them going in and draining her there's just an Uber for other things test that there are taking that is not good but they haven't really got down nitty-gritty yet find out what her problem is because she went into three weeks ago for the same thing as she ran in Tuesday so they got to find out what's going on the family is also looking for an assisted living for her and she's just not able to take care of herself so keep praying that they will find something and and fix it

Glendale Mulqueens is open by appt.   due to size, they need to limit persons.

i am going back one day a week for a while.  They have a worker out for 6-10 weeks.  I will be filling online orders which is keeping them swamped!

Well, I am glad I am not  alone in my laziness!  My yard and garden is also really suffering!  This heat has just been too much.  I figure when it cools in Sept or Oct I will get more plants in.

I have been VIRTUOUS!!   I actually drove to the PO to get both packages mailed. 

I don't know why I resist going there.  Maybe because it's SO FAR away?  Literally, a 2 minute drive.  :-)
