    Hello to everyone! Hope you have a good week! It's going to be cooler here. It'll be nice to have a break from the early heat we've had. Looks like it's going to be another fairly busy week. Older DS is coming for a visit next weekend and I need to get some house cleaning done. I've been avoiding it too long. Crocheting is so much more fun. Brenda, glad your issues are starting to get resolved. Dealing with insurance and paperwork can be frustrating. Mary, I enjoy your kitten pictures--they're really cute!

    Your profile picture is impressive! I lost weight in 2017-2018, but unfortunately I lost my motivation this year and have gained a lot of it back. If I can get my snacking under control, I'll do a lot better. Not much self-control. LOL

    Jessie, that's fine. No need to take shoot the moon. This certainly isn't something to stress about or take too seriously.

    Our House (Part Three)

    It's been a whirlwind week. I've tried to keep up with the posts. Cute kitties, Mary! I'm sure the kids are having fun with them. Love the bag, Judy! DH spent two nights in the hospital after having a small stroke that luckily only affected his eyesight. They think it will resolve itself in a week or so. One chemo medicine has been stopped and he's back on his daily aspirin-- hopefully his hemoglobin won't drop again. He was a horrible patient! He has no tolerance when they are just running tests and there is no treatment. I'm making pretty good progress on a couple of crochet projects and the weather has been nice, just hot, so I guess I really don't have much room to complain. Hope the flooding isn't affecting anyone directly. It's just unbelievable how much rain there has been this winter and spring.
