say it isent so


I have been hearing it on the news, and people on facebook are talking. Could it be true that summer is coming to an end? We are suppose to hit triple digits again this weekend, and I can't wait. Are we heading for a cool down after that? It has been a little cooler here, and I have enjoyed it sum what, but I am do not ready for summer to be over with.
This weekend we are heading down to Coronado island to watch some old school stock car racing, and then we are heading over to see some of the ships. Rusty wants to see one of the new aircraft carriers and I want to see the hospital ship. I guess we will have to see what is open for tours.
Yesterday Ryan came home and told us that his new running shoes made him run real fast for track. I just giggled. I am so glad that he is doing something that he likes. I can't wait to go to his first race.
I had to go to walgreens yesterday and I noticed a sigh that said shingles shot. I just looked at Rusty and said "is that because we will now have a generation that never got chicken pox?"
I had the chicken pox. I had them everywhere. I even ran a super high fever, but I survived. My mom really pushed me to get the girls the new chicken pox shot. I did not want to get it for them because I figured they could get the chicken pox the same way I did. Not to mention I don't immunize. Well with enough pressure I ended up getting the girls the shot, and now they are saying that the shot is only good for ten years. So what happens when all of these children grow up and become adults and they don't get the shot?
My life must be perfect because I have a kitten sleeping on my lap.
Today I am going to try to get some carpets cleaned, and I still need to do a good scrub down on my bathroom sink area. I have tonight's dinner done, so I am thankful for that.
Yesterday I made some homemade dog food for our older dog. For the past few weeks we have been buying her canned food, and that was getting expensive, so I went back to making it. When we first got Butter he was very thin and malnourished, so I made food for him and he did really well on it. So I am hoping that our older dog will also do as well.
The advantages of making the dog food is that it is so much cheaper and I do not have all these extra cans that are going into my recycling. Now I need to get online and figure out how to make wet cat food.
Well, I hate to wake a sleeping kitten, but I have stuff that I need to get done, so I better get up and get moving.
Life is good.

so glad Ryan is enjoying track!! great exercise too :)

have fun at Coronado Island; sounds like a lot of different things going on down there

I can't remember, having a senior moment here, but there is some important reason why seniors should get the shingles shot....I'll have to try to remember that

I was on the fence about the chickenpox shots for the kids; I decided that if by the time they were in 7th grade if they didn't have the chickenpox the natural way, so to speak, I would get them the shot. Mr. Cadillac brought them home in 2nd grade and shared them with his 6th grade sister so that took care of that decision.

I'm looking forward to the end of the triple digit weather, but hoping we have some nice high 80 days into October

betty

It sure doesn't feel like summer is over, it is pretty warm here. I am not liking summer this year, so will be glad to have the cooler temps of fall. If I lived where you do I would probably hate to see it end too.
I am so glad that Ryan likes track. My oldest son was in track and did well at it.
Enjoy your trip and the sleeping kitten.

We've started to cool down a bit in North Carolina. But I love all the changes that come with each season.

You've had remarkable weather for ... well ... for a long time. I remember last winter that you commented that it was in the 90's. Wow! I think you live in perpetual summer.

What are shingles? I had chicken pox and lived ... and I think that if one gets them as adults they are dangerous. So, wouldn't it be better to just let kids get them? Sometimes we are so afraid to catch something that we make our lives dangerous.

Have fun at Coronado!

I hate being FORCED to give the immunizations for many of the same reasons but no shots, no school. Husband said that isn't legal but it is done.
I had shingles after I had the chicken pox. I was in my early 20's and had gone through a horrible time in my life. I was told by the Dr. that you had to have the chicken pox FIRST to get them and the virus goes dormant and is AWAKENED again when exposed to someone that has the chicken pox. My kids got them all during Christmas holiday, then I got shingles. I learned when I worked in the hospital that you can't catch shingles from someone either and I did not know that, but it's possible to get Chicken Pox from being exposed to someone with shingles if you've never had them before.

I dread it that they may FORCE all of us to take the H1N1 vaccine which contains embalming fluid, amongst other toxic chemicals that have nothing to do with anything.

Would you teach me how to make homemade dog and cat food, pretty please?

I loved that Ryan story.
