The Next Mrs. Simon LeBon

@apirateslifeforme, I am glad the dentist appt went well. You discussed what to have for dinner on Thursday. I got confused because today is only Monday, at least I thought so.

Today I had my annual mammogram then started PT for my tailbone pain. I like the PT and hope she can figure things out for me. Then I grocery shopped and stopped at the library to pick up books on hold (one was Charlotte's Web). Figured I get all my exposures out of the house on the same day.

I think we need another
QOTD - What is a trivial pet peeve you have?

I was going to ask you biggest fear but reconsidered because it isn't a positive. Trivial pet peeve -- It bugs me when people use multiple ??? or !!!! in a text or email. Not sure why but drives me nuts.
Yes, Thursday is my birthday :) It's also Josh's gymnastics class night, and we won't be home until 5:30 at the earliest. If I try to cook something, then we're at 6 p.m. or even later by the time we eat, so Thursdays are take-out nights this month. I'm thinking of it early as well, because I'm worried about the cost and I don't want to spring something too expensive on DH at the last minute.

Hoping that you get good news about your mammogram and that your PT goes well!

I woke up to the news that Grant Imahara from Mythbusters passed away from a brain aneurysm yesterday. Completely gobsmacked. I always loved that show. The Build Team were my favorites (Grant, Tory, and Kari) - they were around my age and they showed how you can be both smart AND totally cool. Celebrity deaths are starting to affect me because my childhood/young adulthood is rapidly dying. Leonard Nimoy, David Bowie, Alan Rickman, lots of musicians...this really stinks.

I don't know if I have any "trivial pet peeves"...I personally think they're pretty big ;) (I kid, I kid... ;) ). The first thing that comes to mind is that I cannot fall asleep if someone is touching me. Even just a hand on my arm or something light, I just can't stand it and can't fall asleep like that.

Another one that everyone might find kind of sad is when Josh bats his eyelashes at me and says "You're a beautiful butterfly." It sounds sweet, but the reason it grates on my nerves is that he ONLY does it when I'm telling him to do something and he's ignoring me. Basically it's his way of saying "I'm not listening to you so I'm going to flatter you because you think I'm so cute" :rolleyes:

Lol, PollyannaMom, that just may be! Pen tops also have a way of getting under the pew cushion too! I always did try to have coloring sheets or some type of activity page for a little older kids available but did not always work!

Glad you are enjoying some morning calm and cool, Carol!

:hug:apirateslifeforme, prayers however you celebrate your birthday it will be happy! :) Kids always know how to push our buttons! I'm sorry a favorite TV actor of yours has passed :(

So grateful this Tuesday for a cooler morning and always to be of sound health and able to give praise to God! also, come visit with all of you, too.

Other gratitude (not sure I shared any yesterday, will share extra from today later :))

Sweet emails from camp parents at church. I had wanted their kids to know I was praying for them and will miss them this summer.
Recovering the files yesterday was such a Blessing. Not sure how it happened but know God made it happen!

Happy Tuesday to all!


I Love Figment
Feb 2, 2001
Good morning DIS family! We too awoke to cooler temps, it was only 59 here this morning, is now up to 79 on its way to 84. I tended the garden just as the sun was coming up, and I too listened to all the birds waking up and doing their morning songs. It's one of my favorite times of the day. I just finished mowing, did the weedwacking yesterday, so yardwork should be done for at least another week, since they are calling for temps back into the 90's the rest of the week and into the weekend.

We got some scary news yesterday, that husbands oldest son has tested positive for the virus. He's in quarantine for 14 days. No fever, and only thing bothering him is that he's congested. Gratitude that he isn't any sicker. It is double scary, because he got tested on Friday, and the nite before had been out to dinner with my other stepson and 2 of our granddaughters. They are waiting to hear if they have to be tested or if they have to voluntarily quarantine. This time it hit a little too close to home. And they all live out by Ocean City, so it's a long drive to go see them when the time comes that we can visit again :(

Another gratitude for the day...we use State Farm for our car and home insurance, and got our bill for the last half of the year, and they have given customers a rate reduction--for us it was a little over $100, so that made both of us cheer, lol!

Ongoing gratitude is for this thread, that is keeping all of us connected in a way that I for one, never expected, and that it's giving us the chance to vent, cry, rejoice, and just listen to each other!

Glad to hear that most of our little family here on this thread are doing well, staying healthy, and grateful for the little things that we sometimes take for granted.
Have a great Tuesday everyone! :grouphug:
