I also think you probably have too much on your mind to be able to relax and sleep Suzi.  I have done that and ended up reading a book in the middle of the night but it worked and I managed a few hours sleep.

You sure have a lot of people coming over Lisa, hope all goes well.

Sharon's sister and daughter are traveling first week in May.  The daughter belongs to Sharon's sister as Sharon doesn't have any children.

I bet you and your Mom enjoyed a nice haircut Lisa 😊  If I have everyone show up it will be 11, but they are big eaters 🤔

Yes, I do have a lot on my mind Bren, the problem is staying asleep... I'm falling asleep before I make it to bed 😴

I busted my butt today and thankfully DH helped (It's his birthday today 🙂) I'm kind of behind because my brother called and we had to talk about Mom's house, insurance, etc. and I've been having to do some homework on the internet about what's going on with some of it 😖 We need to get the insurance in our names, etc. I really just want it behind me at this point...😕 I still have some stuff to do, but I took a well deserved break to get on here and also it's thundering outside, so I don't know if we'll get these storms or not. (Sorry for the novel) 🙃

Bren, I remember now that it you had said Sharon didn't have any children.  I couldn't remember when they were traveling to FL.  I too have done the same thing in the middle of the night.  I usually get on the computer for a little while.  

Suzi, it looks as if we are both going to host a lot of people for dinner.  Please tell DH we said Happy Birthday to him.  I hope he had a good day and that you all enjoy the birthday dinner together.  I also hope you get the stuff straightened out on your mom's house.  I know you must be so ready to have all of that behind you by now.  I saw on the news that the storms were supposed to be around your area.  Hopefully you didn't get too much.  What time is everyone coming over tomorrow?  Are you ready for them yet?

Please wish DH a Happy Birthday from me as well Suzi, I hope he enjoyed his day and is looking forward to the birthday dinner.  I guess you will be glad to have all the stuff straightened out and finished with on your Mom's house, it sure is dragging on.  Did you get the storms?

I sure helps to do something for a little while Lisa rather than just lay on the bed tossing and turning.  I find I can usually drop off just fine after reading for a while.

It's quite foggy out at the moment but supposed to be nice later on.  We are going to the outdoor sports centre today.  They have a bit obstacle course that the girls want to try, just like the army training ones.  If they think I'm doing it they can think again.  I would be going straight through the walls not over them lol.

Bren, I can see us now trying to get through an obstacle course.  I would be crawling myself straight to the hospital!

Suzi, you must be enjoying your family and dinner right now.  I hope it all goes great and everyone has a good time, especially DH.  You will be one tired girl tomorrow.

We got a little hail, but most of it missed us yesterday 🙂  Son called about 11:00 and asked how far into the preparations I was and said he was going to take everyone out to eat, so I stopped what I was doing.  😉 Everyone got here around 1:30 and we went to the restaurant, everyone ordered their drinks, then Jr started acting up and DIL had an anxiety attack, so their family left. 🤔 After we ate, I called to let them know we were home for the cake and ice cream and the 3 boys came back over. See how smooth my parties go? 🙄
I told him Happy Birthday from you both and he said Thank you!
I'm with you Bren, I'd be watching the girls 😉
I'm definitely tired Lisa 😴  I'll be back tomorrow 🤓

Smooth as usual Suzi lol.  However, it sounds as if you all had a good time.  Glad most of the hail missed you.

I don't think I could even crawl to the hospital Lisa.

The girls really enjoyed themselves.  They were provided with coveralls so their own clothes didn't get dirty and of course they wore the oldest trainers they could find.  I was quite exhausted after the first two obstacles and that was only watching.  They climbed up and over things, crawled through pipes, swung on ropes over ditches (yes Beth fell into one of them) There were rope bridges up in the trees and various other ways of crossing from one tree to another.  They loved it.  Good job there were shower facilities for them or they would have been traveling home in the boot lol.  They binned the trainers.

It sounds like fun was had by all of you Bren 🙃 Yep, everything smooth as usual here... 🙄

I won't even get into my DIL... they probably don't like cursing on here. (Son, Jr and Gavin came back for cake and ice cream) Otherwise it was a great get together and I'm glad we did it 😊 I can say it was a great 75th birthday for DH 😊 We totally decided to take today off and plan what to do with the food we were going to serve yesterday 😅 I think I've got it covered 😉

Geez Bren, I would have been worn out watching the girls go through all of that.  It sounds like they did have a good time and I'm glad they didn't have to ride home in the boot lol

Suzi, that was nice of your son to want to take you two out for the birthday dinner.  I'm glad DH had a nice birthday.   You shouldn't have to do too much cooking for a while.  Glad you took the day off for a change!

I have a pretty easy week coming up.  How about you girls?  DH stayed home from church this morning.  He started getting a chest cold yesterday and today a sore throat.

Glad you enjoyed your get together Suzi and DH had a good time, we shall just have to imagine the cursing lol.  Good that you took the day off to get over it

I hope DH is feeling a little better Lisa or does he need to see the Dr.?

.I think the girls were happy not to be in the boot as well, I'm sure they think I meant it.
