Happy Homemaker 2021-05-17

Good morning!

We called ds on Saturday afternoon to see if we could pick up Xavier and so he could spend the night with us.  we took him back to his house on Sunday around 4:00 and had supper with them.  Got to see and hold Anne-Elizabeth.  She is one month old today.  I finally gave her her birth gift (some $$ and a pj).

Decluttering didn't go so well... dh finally sold mil's house and there were more things in the garage that he brought here :(  I have a few pieces up for sale on Marketplace but no calls yet.

The house buy will be official on June 1st but she started painting this weekend.  She is seperating and needs a house for her and 3 children (1 week at her house, 1 week at their dad's house).

Let's join Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom .

The weather (in celsius).
Scattered thunderstorms
Mostly cloudy
Partly cloudy
Partly cloudy

Warm week ahead

On my mind
Thinking of going to see my parents maybe next weekend.  DDIL said we could bring Xavier.  will depend because dd has not seen her godchild yet (Anne-E) and might want to come this weekend (she would've come last 2 weekends but ddil had plans).
DH received new payment grid from insurance company... he will be 65 at the end of the month and coverage is going down even though he is still working.  So glad I don't have the same pills for my SCI... the other ones were almost $300 a month.  the ones I have are about the same EXCEPT I rarely take them but the others I had to take them all the time.  Massage therapist and ostheopath will pay alot less too... might have to go alot less.  will look up automassage on the web.
