I love days like today. Warm and sunny and oh so pleasant. Somewhat windy but I will take it.
I made myself get some stuff done today. Not a lot but lately I have been letting things slide. I did a little bit of work on the garage bathroom that I have been working on for a long time. Well, I haven't really been working on it, just intending to. I didn't order enough wall cover. Placed a new order today and it should be here tomorrow. Will finish that, finish the baseboard edging and then son will hopefully install the new toilet. It is not a professional job but it will sure look a whole lot better than it did. Got some clothes put away, changed bedclothes in Master bedroom, removed any trash in all rooms and returned misplaced items to their proper place. Cleaned the dining room, bathroom and bedroom. Straightened up the living room.
I was at work on Saturday when I got a text from my 6th grade teacher. He asked me if I was a good organizer. I replied that I am sometimes, lol. So his 77th birthday is in July and he wanted to have a class reunion of our 6th grade class and the class behind us and he wanted me to organize it but he also didn't want anyone to know it was his idea, lol. I tried to wheedle out of it, but then I felt bad because I feel like maybe he is lonely. Several years ago when we first became friends on Facebook I would hide that I was online because every time I logged on he was sending me messages. Myself and a couple of other class members met him for lunch a few years ago. So now I have to find a yearbook to verify the members of the class behind us. He sent me a list but he wasn't sure it was complete. I don't think many will show up as we only had 26 in our class and 5 have passed away. At least 3 live out of state. I have reserved a shelter at a park. Hopefully this goes well:)
My goal for this evening is to get paper work under control, make sure bills have been paid and fill out paperwork for surrendering 2 life insurance policies of hubbies. He didn't want to surrender them, but his mom was the one paying on them for years (as in decades) and she was the beneficiary. Since she has passed away we were going to change me to the beneficiary but I feel that he should be the one to get the proceeds. They are not huge amounts but they will make a nice cushion.
Tomorrow I will be visiting my mother. I didn't go see her last week as I had visited with her on Mother's Day. On Wednesday my car was in the shop and on Thursday I had a Dr. appt. I did see her on Friday evening at the visitation for my uncle who had passed away.
They say that death comes in 3s. In February my mother-in-law passed away, in April my husband's very best friend passed away and then 2 weeks later our grandson was killed in an auto accident. So maybe the saying isn't correct or my uncle passing away is a new cycle? It is worrisome as my mom is 91, my aunt(wife to the uncle that passed away) is not doing well at all and one of my other uncles is in bad shape and my brother-in-law is scheduled for a triple bypass in June.
Goodness Gracious, it is already 8pm. I better get going on all that paperwork if I don't want to be up all night!!
