Hello my lovely ladies of 40ish!  Here we are again on another bright Monday.  How is your week starting off?

Right now I'm waiting for my DH to get home from the hospital with word of how my sweet MIL is doing - she got taken in by ambulance mid-afternoon.  A low-blood pressure episode had her feeling wobbly and scared to be alone so she called for help with her emergency buzzer.  Her doctor had put her on medication last week which could have the side effect of reducing blood pressure so we were aware it could happen.  I'm sure she will be fine, but it's scary having to wait.

I have a quiet week ahead this week.  Ishtar has exams and of course she is working on her Ration Challenge. Athena finished her degree with an exam last Saturday so now the job hunt for her starts in earnest.  What do you have in store?  Come chat with us and let us know.  Grab a cup of your favourite morning brew, a snack to fill you up and join in the conversation.  There will be someone around all day.

Best wishes for your MIL. and congrats to your kiddos! My ds starts his internship at the county courthouse this morning. I am about to leave for work. We are getting a pretty bad rain storm later today so hopefully rush hour traffic on the way home will be ok. 

Enjoy the day!

Hi, Manth! I pray your MIL will be okay, I know how dear she is to you. Please let us know when you hear something. Good Luck to Athena and Ishtar, I hope they both will do well (I know they will)! ;-) I have some things to take care of today, but I'll be back here later! Hope you sleep well!

Thanks, Kristy. Good luck to your son with his internship. MIL seems to be improving and will probably be able to go home late tonight or early tomorrow.

One thing I've always been glad is that Ross doesn't work shifts. Having to be quiet all day would suck.

Thanks for the prayers. Her bp is up and she should be released later.

Thanks Linda. Her blood pressure has come back to where it should be so she's just under observation now and should be released either late tonight or tomorrow morning.

Good Morning Ladies,

Another day at work for me, I think I need to go to work to recover from my weekend.  Saturday we finally traded in DH's Jetta and got him a Tiguan.  Our dealership changed owners and the new guys are not as easy to deal with, it was a bit draining.  Then we ended up at the mall and William Sonoma had some plates we have been waiting to go on sale on clearence so we got them.  All in all it got so late that we had both a late lunch and dinner there.

Sunday for Father's Day DH was whipped out, and we still had to pick up the rest of the plates from another William Sonoma so DD and I went to the other mall that is closer to our home.  Then when I got home, put on a lamb roast and cleaned my house.  So I am just tired and sore and really just wanted to stay home and sleep in.  But hey only 4 more days of school for DD, YAY!

Thank you Regina. She gave us quite the scare but seems to be improved at last. Hopefully home late tonight or tomorrow morning.

I'm sorry that you are still sick. I hope you feel better soon - you need to be able to keep up with Pammy!
