Someday things will be back to something similar to normal.

Meanwhile I'm having blog walking withdrawals and, I gotta tell ya, it comes with the shakes.

We did meet with my friend at DHS and she grabbed a couple more fine ladies and all those heads got together and hopefully we've got the ball rolling to get some help for bil. After all the thinking and pondering those ladies did and the miracles they came up with, all I could do was blubber my heartfelt thanks. I think I was just so wound up from the whole week that the relief that someone was finally going to help just rolled me over the emotional hump. Now we just need to pray that all the Ts are crossed and they dot every I so those angels can do their jobs. I'm for certain sure it's because of all the prayers that have been coming our way that made this possible.

That bucket of 'maters is still sitting in the kitchen waiting to be all done up because I went to see the Chicklets today, who I haven't seen in over a week. I swear they'll be driving cars and dating soon, they're growing that fast. Jilly Beans is busy, busy, toddling around on her little chub legs getting into almost more than her Mommy can imagine is possible for her to. The Chick is still conversing on the level of a young adult except with more sense than most. I could be biased but I think she should skip school all together and go straight on to a career,,, just hopefully not as a nude dancer. She got so excited today about the train going by at the end of the pasture that she forgot she hadn't put her clothes back on after her skinny dip in the paddle pool. The engineer must be a regular cause he didn't hesitate to wave back at the little, naked, nature child as he went by.

On my way home I went by the grocery, stopped by a parts place to get new windshield wipers (mine had gone to hell and back), and filled up, again,(3rd time this week,,gasp!!) with gas. The guy pumping that liquid gold into my near-empty truck asked me if I wanted premium or regular and I told him I'd take premium if he planned to give it to me at the price of the regular. I don't know why he didn't think that was a fine idea, but he didn't, so he gave me the same old regular gold again. I mentioned to him that I could remember when my danged car payment was much less than the price of that tank of gas but that didn't seem to interest him either. Cold, hard, cash was the only thing that brought a twinkle to his watering eye. He almost smiled then too.

Jami and 2 of The girls were waiting for us when we arrived home so we had some more visiting to do before I finally got around to throwing some supper on the table. I almost had Abby talked into spending the night with us but when her mom said it was time for her to go home she decided that she wasn't in a mood to be without mommy for this night and went back home with her.

Tomorrow we're going over to have BBQ with Jerri and Bubbie and just kick back and watch the kiddies play. I'm really looking forward to it.

And those 'maters await.

I hope my Canadian friends had a great Canada Day and all my American friends have a happy and safe 4th of July! I'm thinking of you!

Happy fourth to you!!
(ps, I would have given you the premium for regular prices, just to stick it to Exxon and all those greedy bastards!).

Sally said...

Happy 4th! Those dang maters can just wait, you need some downtime. Hoping things work out for the help ya'll need for bil. God bless. :)

Tammy said...

Been missing you!!!
Glad you are back...glad prayers were answered for BIl!!!
Have a happy and restfull 4th and
God Bless the USA!!!

Brent said...

I hope you had a great day, Brenda! It sounds like you deserved it. And just so you know, I have terrible luck with windshield wipers. They seem to just pull the water rather than wipe it. Anyway, Happy 4th!!

Special K said...

What Sally said. And Brent, and Tammy and Virginia Gal, too.

You ever notice how when women work together to solve a problem, it works out so simply? Too bad we don't do it more often.

P.S. I tried to comment on your other post containing the picture of Jordan, but Blogger was having none of it. Suffice it to say, she is one beautiful little girl! Really, honey, you have some of the most beeeyootiful grandbabies in Creation, and I know what I'm talking about. :)

I remember when we were at wits end trying to figure out what we could do to help my brother. I had called everywhere. People were sympathetic and usually had another number for me to call, but it finally came down to the kindness and perception of one man and prayer. I will put you and your bil in my prayers.
Hope you had a joy filled 4th.

I hope you were able to get some relaxing in Ms. Brenda! :)

Leslie said...

You've been a busy, busy lady as always. Thank goodness for help, Brenda. I'm glad those ladies were able to come through for you.

And how cute is the name Jilly Beans? *melt*

We watched the tail end of a ceremony in the park on Saturday for 139 brand spankin' new Canadians. It was so cool to see their beaming faces. You could tell they just wanted to get up and hug everyone. I would've been first in line.

Well I am happy that Bil is improving and getting help.
Hope your BBQ was a success!
Nothing like good food, sunshine and good company!!
