     Aren't you ready for Spring?I know I have been ready for quite a while for the warmer weather. They are predicting bad weather for later today. Just what we need some more freezing rain or snow. It depends on where you live if you look at the weather map. You might not get to much and then you could get quite a little. Yesterday, we had sunshine and 51 degrees. It is no wonder people are sick with all of the ups and downs. I have a cold that seems to be hanging on, but you don't know how to dress. Whether to wear multiple layers or cut down on how many.

      I know I have been missing for the last week which has been very trying in more ways then one. Have you ever felt like that you get lip service, but nothing  happens. I won't go into that I have to play Family Services a visit to find out about the two letters I got. I just get so mad that I cry and I have shed enough tears this week. But the good news is that I got the results of my lab work back which was good. 
     My magnolia tree is probably not going to look like the picture. I have quite a few small branches laying underneath it from all of the winds that we have had.
     I'll pray a lot for good weather and warmer weather  because we are suppose to go see the liver doctor Tuesday. I want safe roads so that we don't have to cancel the appointment. You have to wait so long for the appointments. 
     My youngest grandson got to go to his first concert last night. They got seats in an upper level right on the front row to see Florida Georgia line, Jason Aldean, and another one. They didn't want people in front of him so that he couldn't see. He has been marking days off the calendar. All of my grandsons sing with the radio in the car. I like to listen to the younger two sing together. You never know which one they like the best, but it is country music. The younger two have their own version of Ol MacDonald's farm. It is a mixture of animals, but you laugh because one will name the animal, then the other one.You never know what kind they will pick.
    I am looking forward to the end of the month. My oldest is coming home for a visit. We are all anxious to see him. It has been home for over a year since we have seen him. I asked if he was sure and he told me  his vacation has been approved. Of course, the boys are anxiously awaiting for him to get home. We will celebrate his birthday while he is home. 
   Enough of this and that. I hope you all stay safe and warm. I know I will. Take care.

Shirley, I am praying for good weather for you to make your appointments. I just yesterday rescheduled an appointment I had for Monday... That would be a trick trying to get to town ...I know the roads won't be cleared. Be safe . The boys sound like fun for you to be around. xoxo,Susie

I have been through the doctor/reschedule appointments all during this dreadful winter. I pray that you will be able to keep your appointments!

I hope your husband is doing well!
Whatever it was that upset you so I hope with all my heart that it can be resolved!

We got one inch of snow over night and will get one or two more today. It is snowing right now.
So glad your son is coming!!

This coming storm keeps changing.
I certainly can imagine how upsetting all this is for you. You have so much on your plate. I'm glad your blood work was okay.
The grandsons are a blessing to you and you to them.
I hope that the storm has passed and the roads are clear for his appointment. Take care my friend. (Hugs)))))

Oh Shirley, I pray things improve for you and that your issue will improve. It's so disturbing...when you have to fight to get things resolved. So frustrating... My prayers are with you for good weather to make your appointments..

Hope you have a blessed Sunday!


PS Love the chatter of grandchildren!

Shirley, glad you have got all that stuff sorted out, but so sorry you are feeling under the weather. The concert sounds fun as will your visit with your oldest.
