Just checking in to let you know the stuff that's happening.
The good....and the bad

1. The bad-Roger is in the hospital. He will hopefully come home today or tomorrow. Serious dieting and grumpiness to follow. Knew it was coming. He's stable and getting better but hungry and tired. Hospitals are not the place to get any rest.

2. The good-We had a visit from friends. Did a lot of stuff and shopping. Lunch out east at a favorite place. Wonderful help from our friends while they were here. I got shoes and a bag for the wedding and I think we are all pretty much set for the big day.

3. The good- we are getting some work done on the house in the form of new windows. The guy is coming tomorrow to take actual measurements and it should be about 4 weeks from then. Sometime in Sept. It's a job that needed doing desperately and will make a huge difference in the appearance of the house as well as heating and cooling costs.

With all that's going on, good and bad, I really have become a bad blogger so I'm grateful for anyone who still checks in now and again. Miss my sewing machine and fabric but I just can't seem to focus on anything right now. My brain hurts. Please say a prayer for my husband. I hope they let him come home today-he's not a happy camper in any hospital let alone one 35 miles from home. I am going to have to be the food Nazi starting tomorrow. Not good!

Back with news when I can.

Hope the hospital stay is short and R. is OK.

I love our new windows. Besides looking better and keeping the house cozier, we were very pleasantly surprised at how much quieter the house is. All the outside traffic sounds disappeared.

Oh I do hope Hubby gets to come home from the hospital. Good luck as the Food Nazi - it's not fun, but necessary I am sure *s* I'll be thinking of you.

Enjoy those windows. We did them in CA and it was our favorite home improvement.

So sorry to hear about Roger. Nothing like a hospital visit to give you a kick in the butt! Hugs to you both.

Sending good thoughts for Roger's return and recovery. And I'm glad you are set for the wedding. Terry is right about the windows - the decrease in noise was an additional perk at Corky's house, they made a huge cut in the noise from the power boats at Marine Stadium. Del in SCalifornia

Hope that Roger gets home today and that he feels better soon.
Always a pleasure being the diet police.
Glad you got those shoes. That's a lot of fretting gone!

I can't believe I missed all of this. Check the medications he is on very carefully and also interactions. My brother had pancreatitis (so painful) and we had him in hospice. He was so bad they took him off all medicine except the pain medicine and he started getting better. We discovered it was one of the meds he was on...scuse me... I discovered.. why couldn't a doctor figure it out? Anyway... there are some diabetic medicines that cause it...
