cleaning, doctors and Phantom!

Hello friends!  I am still working on the house.  I have done a few things since I last wrote.  I got my bathrooms cleaned and all of the pictures on the wall dusted and I was able to go through my make-up and get rid of some of that.  We fill up our trash so fast with Karl working on the fence which is also coming along by the way, but I need to be able to throw things away.  I am a little stuck right now, so maybe I will work on my dresser in my bedroom this week, but that will probably be it.
Sunday we went to see The Phantom of the Opera.  It was so amazing!  Karl, Josh and I all went.  Josh has gotten to where he doesn't want to go very many places, but he went and he loved it.  I am glad we could share such an awesome musical with him.  I have been watching the broadway musicals that come through for one for us to see and none have caught my eye until Phantom.  It was a great night.  Afterwards we went and had Andy's Frozen Yogurt.  It was delicious.
I had to go to the doctor yesterday.  My blood pressure has been high for the past several years when I see my other doctor.  He told me in the winter I needed to start seeing an internal doctor.  My blood pressure was high when they took it, but they want me to check it at home..which I did and it seemed fine...112/80.  It was 128/90 in the doctor's office.  I will watch it over the next month and write down my blood pressure and go back then and share my results, she also ran bloodwork and urine tests and it looks like my thyroid might be off.  I saw the results online last night, but I will wait until I hear from her.  I really liked her.  She did order an EKG and chest X-ray just to be on the safe side because of my concern for my heart.  I do that on Monday the 4th.  I will keep you all posted.
I think that is it. more thing.  Mandy went to the vet and has a urinary tract infection...they get those a lot with DM, so she is on medicine and I found her some chews for after her antibiotics that are cranberry and D-Mannose.  I am going to see if those will help.
It is so hot here!  I hope you are all doing great!

School is out for summer!

Hello friends!  School is out for summer!  My last day was yesterday.  I am excited, but I will miss my friends and the kids.  The teachers do need a break though and so do the kids.
We had our preschool graduation a couple of weeks ago and it was super cute.  I was so afraid I was going to cry, but I did really well.  The kids all did a super job.  I will miss those going to Kindergarten.  They had to come right back to school for the last two weeks, but now we are all on break.
Now that school is out I am wanting to clean my house.  Karl has been working on putting up a privacy fence around our yard and I have decorated for summer with lots of flowers.  It has been so hot here already close to 90º.  The weathermen say it is July weather and I am not loving it.  I am glad I do not have to worry about recess duty anymore.  It was almost too hot to have the kids out.  It is really humid too.
So, yesterday when I got home I shampooed the carpets and cleaned the mirrors and toilets.  Today I took Josh to get a haircut, then dusted the furniture and started cleaning out shelves in our entertainment center and in Josh's bathroom.  My goal is to work through the house.  I have been so busy the past two years with my dad that I did not get a lot of deep cleaning done, so I am going to try to do that this year.
I still want to clean the sinks today and maybe go through my make-up.  We will see.
I do have a doctor's appointment on Tuesday.  My blood pressure has been high, so I am going to have that checked out.  I am sure they will look at everything.
I hope everyone is doing well!  Have a nice Memorial Day weekend.
