London 2012 Olympics

Well the London 2012 Olympics are in full swing and I could care less. Maybe that sounds bad to some people but I just don't enjoy watching all of that. I've never been sports minded and maybe that can explain why I feel this way. I have a couple of friends who could watch every second of it and I don't understand why. Anyway that is my opinion and I'm glad there are many people in this world who get enjoyment out of it. I personally will be glad when it's over.

Inspection Tools

My husband will occasionally work on our vehicle's motor. Sometimes where he is working can be in hard to reach places or hard to see. So I noticed not too long ago that he had replaced some of his inspection tools with new ones. They sure come in handy for jobs like this. I can see where they would be extremely helpful.

Protective Underwear

Often as a person gets older they begin to have trouble with incontinence. It can be quite bothersome whether it be during the day or at night when trying to sleep all night without interruption because of the incontinence problem. That is why many of these people where protective underwear whether the incontinence is heavy or light. It helps keep them dry and they don't have to worry about the accidents they may have.

My Sister

Well, my sister came to stay with us through this past weekend. Once again we had so much fun. Friday night she and I talked and talked while she painted my fingernails. Then Saturday we got up early and headed for Des Moines to shop all day. We ate at Huhot and then shopped and shopped. We got home around 10 that evening which was good for us. Sunday she left after lunch and now we have to wait another year for our sister fun time together. We talked that we should try and do this more often. We will have to work on that.

My sons are both college graduates and have been steadily looking for a job. It has become quite discouraging for them and us. With student loans on the horizon and some coming due now it gets scary. They have even tried for jobs working in a store and haven't gotten anything. God tells us to lean on him and sometimes it gets worse before it gets better. I am thankful for a God who is there 24 7 because I reach out to him through all of this and so do our sons. We believe he has great things in store for them.

Independence Day

For Independence day this year I had to work but when I got off I went home and had planned to grill out for dinner. It was so hot that I told my husband we are going to cook inside tonight and so we did. Then we were so comfortable in our air conditioned house that we both looked at each other when it was time to go out in the heat again and watch fireworks and kind of laughed and said we didn't want to go. It's sad that such heat ruins fun. Looking forward to a little bit cooler week next week.

Trailer Hitches

Ever since we bought our van I have wanted my husband to put a trailer hitch on it so if we come across a nice camper we would be ready to pull it. He has one on his truck and it really comes in handy when pulling anything. I see trailer hitches on a variety of different vehicles and I am hoping we can get on soon so we can be ready.


We have attended a couple of weddings so far this summer and I have loved the choices that the brides had chosen for their bridesmaids. The colors are bright and fit for summer. I also noticed that the girls were wearing shorter dresses verses full length. Either style is so beautiful for a wedding. Like you find with dresses made by dessy. These dresses are elegant and come in different styles to choose from. Any one of these dresses would look beautiful on a bridesmaid.
