late night talks

How was the 4th of July for everyone?  I am glad it is over for my dog's sake, it seems like the fireworks have stopped, so her anxiety level is back to normal.  I love Independence Day and I love fireworks too, but seeing what they do to some animals is so sad.  My other two dogs could care less though.  They acted like nothing was going on, or it was normal.
Josh and I have just been hanging out with my mom and dad.  Josh got tired of shopping with my mom, so he has been staying with my dad.  It seems to be going ok.  My mom is a slow shopper, she always has been.  It takes her hours to grocery shop, so I go with her.
Josh and I stayed up until 4:30AM the other night just talking about stuff.  We usually have these talks in the summer in the daytime, but since we are never alone, we stayed up one night talking.  I enjoy our talks.  He is such a smart kid.
I am meeting up with my friends again on Tuesday for lunch.  I am excited to see them.  One of the girls will be working in another building this year, so we will not see her.  I am going to miss her.
It seems like last I wrote Dallas shootings have happened, Nice France and the Turkey military coup.  The world has gone crazy.  It is so sad to watch.
Josh and I just have a few more weeks before school starts.  We have a lot to get in and Josh will be turning 18 years old on August 4th.  I know some of you who read this blog have known me his whole life from back in the website days.  I cannot believe how fast time flies.  This will be his senior year, I am not sure what his plans are after graduation.  He had planned to go to college, but he has really had a bad experience with the school district here and has lost all confidence in himself.  He has time to figure things out though.
Have a nice week, it is going to be hot here next week.  I am going to be wishing I was in my pool.

Happy Independence Day!

I had a fun time with my friends having lunch last Tuesday.  We talked for 3 hours.  Then I went to my mom and dad's to help out.  I hurt my back on Wednesday.  If you follow me here you may remember I have a bad back and it gets pulled out sometimes.  I went to the chiropractor on Thursday and I felt much better afterwards.  I had breakfast with another friend on Friday morning.  It was a nice week except for the back situation.  I was trying to help my mom bring in a case of water and my back just tightened up.  Ice helped it a lot too.
I have found Hallmark movies and Mysteries channel.  We did not have it for a long time, but it is part of our package now.  The past several weeks I have been watching mysteries on there and I just love them.  They are silly, but I do not care.  The past couple of nights I have been watching Christmas in July movies.  I just love Hallmark movies.  I am excited to have two channels of them to watch.
Karl has been having migraines this week.  We are not sure what is causing them, but since I have been married to him he has maybe one a year and this week he has had 3.
My dog Meisha has been having a rough week with the fireworks.  She is scared to death of them and will hide.  Her whole body just shakes.  It is so sad.  It has been raining some and there haven;'t been as many, so hopefully most of the fireworks will get set off tonight.  My other two dogs do not seem to care about the noise, but Meisha has always been scared.  She will even jump into Karl's lap and she is a lab.
Tomorrow I take my mom to the eye doctor.  We are taking my dad and I will stay with him in the waiting room or in the car.  I need to take her to get groceries too.
In the meantime, you all have a very Happy 4th of July!
