Steve got his
protime done and he was 2.8, so that means unless things change between
now and tomorrow morning at the hospital, the cardioversion is a go!!! We're both
nervous and excited and scared and stressed. Just praying it works!

Today's photo prompt is Left Behind. This scary looking giggling
doll was left behind from Rylie's fourth of July birthday celebration.
My boys have come up with many horror stories...
Happy 2nd Anniversary to Isaiah and Becky!!! It sure doesn't seem like it's been 2 years already since they got married, but...it is.
day. Josiah's time to be at work has changed due to him being done with
school. We left at 10:15 instead of noon or later. I dropped him off
and then dropped overdue books off at the library. Unfortunately I
forgot one of the overdue books at home. True, the library is closed
today, but still...Steve said he'd drop it off before it opens in the
morning. Got home. Had lunch. Read for a bit, almost fell asleep and
then had to go pick Josiah up at the church. I'm glad one of his bosses drops him
off at the church.
Have you played the lottery? Nope. Have absolutely no desire to.
Elijah's Jeep made it home from the shop where it was towed to without breaking
down. Steve was really glad because he did not want to have to hook up
the trailer and drive his cube van to wherever.
Went to church. Both Isaiah and Jamie were gone so Steve was the only one leading songs. He played piano and sang.
Nathan, Aaron, and Josiah went over to Katelyn's house to play in their pool.
Who did you text today? Mom, Aaron, and Ronnie
Today's photo prompt is Pride. Although we've had our fights,
misunderstandings, and not so happy attitudes from me about Steve's piano
playing for church, I am proud of him and his talent, but more than that
of his willingness to help out when needed. He does love to play.
Picture is from an iphone video, so it's not all that great.
Steve and I just got back in the house from a formica obscuripes trail
walk. I know, I know these little western thatching ants don't destroy
my home, they eat aphids, etc, but they also bite and I don't want them
in my yard! I sprinkled the Terro ant killer, Steve sprayed the Terro with
water. We followed their trail all the way back to their nest beside the
road and put Terro on that, too. If it doesn't kill them, Steve said
he'll put 'em in a garbage bag and burn 'em. They spread so quickly and
once they gain a foot hold, we'll end up with nests everywhere.
worked this morning. Micah texted me at 10:53 to say he was two hours
from Lakewood. We *thought* he was coming home later this evening,
but...he'd left Teri's Moms at 4:30 (5:30 our time). I called Steve and he
said he'd get his job finished up and get home. He did. Micah was really
tired. 9+ hours of driving yesterday. Little sleep last night and 9+
hours of driving today made for a tired man.
Elijah's Jeep broke
down last night on his way to Crystals. The H's have free
towing, so they had his Jeep towed to a shop. The guy looked at it
today, but said he couldn't replicate what Elijah had happen. Of course
not. Steve told Elijah that he was not going to be driving anywhere
tonight to pick up the Jeep with the trailer (in case it breaks down).
Therefore, Elijah will be spending another night.
Nathan and Joy went to Westport.
I should go get today's laundry folded. I think I'm going to bed early tonight.
I. Am. Tired. Ready, ready, ready for bed. Steve and I met the travelers
and they got off safely and made it to Teri's Moms. Steve and I will
take Maggie (Brandi's car) back to Avis tomorrow evening once Micah gets
back. We stopped at Walmart and got food for today. Once we got home,
we got things set up for partying/bbqing.
Isaiah and Becky showed
up a little before noon. Ken was the next to show up. Colton was
already here as he'd spent the night again. Tiana, Jeremiah, Bradyn, and Rylie showed up next
and then Mom and Joy. Bernie and Marie didn't get here about 3.
Nathan had gone hiking with Pastor Matt and some of their family, so he
was late getting back, but that's okay. Joy feels comfortable
enough around us that she's fine with Nathan not being here.
did the barbecuing. I missed having Micah, Brandi, and Ethan here! We
ate. And visited. And laughed. And ate more.
Mom had brought a pool for Bradyn and Rylie when she came over yesterday and Aaron, Josiah, and Colton set it up for them. The guys played volleyball. We celebrated Joy's 19th birthday (blanket Nathan had made for Joy)
and Rylie's 1st birthday. Some of the guys played some strange game where they tried to "take it" by getting hit in the nuts with a volleyball...
There were giggles for quite awhile and just after I took this photo,
Aaron got the ball and rolled it with a little too much force and nailed
Isaiah really hard. That was the end of the game and Isaiah can curl up
pretty easily for such a big guy. He was down for almost five minutes!!
Poor guy. I mean it was his choice to play the game, but still...
Joy had brought a pinata for her birthday. Her and Bradyn took turns hitting it.
took off to go be with Crystal (spending the night) and family. Bernie,
Marie, Joy, and Nayt (Joy's brother) left before we started the
fireworks that Mom had brought. I cuddled with Rylie for a little bit.
She almost fell asleep during the fireworks!
Nice day. Happy birthday to America!!
What movie are you looking forward to? None. If something looks good, we *might* go see it, but we normally wait for Redbox or Netflix.
Didn't follow today's photo prompt. Happy Birthday to America and to Joy (Nathan's girlfriend)!!
