    Re: Rep Retirement Lodge 201: A State You Don't Expect

    Good morning Lodge. Hope all Lodge dads had a nice day yesterday. ME - that sounded like a very cool present.

    First Fatherís Day without my dad. It was...bittersweet? I wanted to focus on good/fun memories. Posted those pictures of us at Fenway. Noticed Godfather II was on and when i turned it on, i saw the one scene my dad always quoted when talking about/watched the movie. Then Iím on Twitter and saw a tweet with a link to a story too long to go into here and man, it literally was so spot on - in a good way - that it made me kinda weepy. And then I inadvertently said something not good to my mom. We were talking about what she was going to get when she goes food shopping today and what she had in her freezer and said she still has the half gallon of coffee ice cream that was my dadís. My niece kept saying she would eat it, but hasnít. I said ďYou havenít thrown that out yet??Ē And then I realized she doesnít want to throw it out yet and I felt horrible for yelling at her about it.

    Day 5 post op. Still in some pain. My leg is swollen and the cast is tight. I finished one of the painkillers, I stopped taking the Oxycodone as it was making me feel yucky and I donít think it was doing anything that Tylenol could do.

    Iíll settle for being able to walk to the bathroom without it taking a specific amount of time, and clearing a path to get there.

    I will say, the knee scooter has been a help. I feel like my abdominal muscles have gotten better since I havenít had to use my crutches.

    I could see both of these things in my head.

    Father's Day was good. Now trying to catch up on everything. Having a wake/funeral in VT and then a wedding n MI all in 5 days is not condusive to keeping up. FInally started to catch up and then Father's Day.

    Good Evening Lodge!

    Actually, my first thought was that she'd be hoisting herself up at the bar yelling at the bartender that martinis are awesome. Still one of my favorite stories (DEN, '08).

    Evening, Lodge.

    Good Morning Lodgers!

    Eventful AM.
    Sitting on the sun-porch pre-8AM and the neighbor shows up at door to tell us he is all set to use his driveway (he has been using ours). It has been a trial- running springs under the driveway, torrential rains washing out the stuff they put down, etc.
    Before I could escape from under the throw I was clutching on my lap, Terminex showed up (without calling first) to deal with the ant infestation we suddenly were dealing with. Raced up to change while mr les met him at door. As this was happening lilnsl was heading out for an interview.
    5 min later a text from lilnsl- another place called and wants an interview set up.
    Then a text from mr les who brought the car down to get checked-700$
    then while that is transpiring get a call from lilnsl that the interview went well they want him back for a second, he needs to set up the one that called earlier. The guy who is his boss and schedules him is out today. lilnsl is covering whole dept tom'w and the place wants him to come in tomorrow at 9. Wants advice on how to handle it professionally.
    Meanwhile mr les is texting back and forth too.

    I am not good at keeping multiple text threads straight.

    Praying very hard for the job thing. It has been a yr and a month and still nothing.

    The curtain that I posted on Facebook felt the same way - not enough lining fabric and I had to seam both types of fabric. It came out well, but it was such a pain to do that I don't think that I would do it again.

We printed out Google Maps directions from location to location just in case, but we primarily used the Atlas. I am not good with directions or map reading and this was a great way to hone the skill. Now I always have one in case we go somewhere without cell/GPS service (unlikely, but not impossible in New England).

    Sorry to hear that, mookie. It must be very difficult to be away for so long.

    Thinking of you and lil -- hope this goes well. (btw - I did not take the D-H job as much as I really wanted to. The commute was just too much, even for me.)

    I wondered. Wise choice. It is always flattering to be wanted tho.

    Ahem... obligatory MN State Fair new foods link posting. LINK

    31 new foods year, 7 new vendors. Mixed bag in the new stuff, but seems better than last year's new offerings.

    Some of that looks good. Getting really tired of the fancy donut trend though. I thought for sure it had peaked and was dying when they started doing the "shoot-up your own donut" thing with the flavor syringes.

    Yeah, but it's only one donut item that I saw this year.

    3 more days until a week off. It's been dicey this week, but has panned out...so far. HUGE order sitting on our dock, 32 pallets full (a full semi can only carry 26 pallets. I really hope I don't have to deal with it...because of this, we have NO dock space, and another big order is being worked on, which is taking up our "backup" space to stage things. There is no room at the inn, Joseph and Mary.
