Going Home

   Our oldest heads back to Louisianan today. We didn't get what they were predicting for us instead of the ice and snow we actually had some sunshine off and on today. 
    Hubby hasn't caught the flu bug that is going around. The aide's were talking about all of those who had the diarrhea today when I went to check on him. They were having to do quite a bit of clean-up with not being able to get to them fast enough. He got his shower and his diet Pepsi so he was happy and he didn't have a problem with me coming home. 
   Our oldest son, two grandsons, and I went to breakfast together yesterday. We went over the the Diner at the Airport where I hadn't been for quite a while. We got to watch the planes land and take off. The food was good and the business is coming back. They needed a restaurant with the air guard being there. 
 After breakfast I got to hang out with the littlest in the picture while the oldest in the middle and his Uncle went to sight in the gun that our oldest grandson got for Christmas. They went to a firing range. I had fun with the littlest one in the picture. He did his exercises that he has to do before he goes to see the physical therapist at Children's Mercy on Monday. I still learn something new every time he goes.
  Later in the afternoon when I took my oldest back to our daughter's house, I went to supper with all of them. My blonde haired grandson says that he is not going to play baseball this summer. I don't know if he will change his mind or not. A picture of Mr.JC Penny who my grandson portrayed at the school program I went to. 
  With all of the kids headed back to school I will be a little lost for a while.I got to spent time with family which made my Christmas. Everybody was healthy.
   Hope you all had a good New Years. Saying prayers for all of those who are sick. Get well soon. Take Care.

Shirley, Glad your husband is good at this time. Nice for him and you. Bless his heart. Those grandsons keep you entertained I bet. I know what you mean about missing them...I had my youngest g.daughter for a couple days and missed her as soon as their car was out of my sight. Can't help it. Love them so much. Blessings to you Shirley. Please take care fo yourself and be extra careful when going out in the bad weather. xoxo,Susie

I'm so happy to hear you had such a nice Christmas...you really do have the best family. And I know those grandsons are just the world to you (and so handsome!).

Glad to hear your husband is doing so good health~wise. Some of our schools were actually closed in early December because the flu hit so hard. We are all healthy here, thankfully.

Sending love and good wishes,

We got the flu over Christmas! I am still praying for your husband's protection from it.
Happy New Year Shirley!

You have a lovely, caring family, Shirley! I glad you got to spend some time with them over the holidays.

We, too, are praying that we avoid catching the flu. I have not been in any crowds, other than my granddaughter's winter concert. Being esp. careful about washing hands, too. This year's strain is esp. wicked. Our local hosp. had over 150 cases so far (only 60 last yr.)
Stay well!!

Shirley, so glad your hubby is staying well. And that you had such a nice CHRISTmas with family. Looks like this past snow storm may have missed you. We got some last night, but not as bad as others north of us.

Stay well and warm, you're in my prayers.
Blessings

Oh, Shirley...so glad your son got home safely.
It seems I stay in prayer all the time, asking HIM to keep our kids and grands safe ....I have a grandson that left in this bad weather, heading to his girl in Portland OR...he is going slow but so far he is staying safe.
Stay warm...I am on my way to the kitchen for some Raspberry Tea and a slice of date nut cake....Come have some with me. :)
