Just when you have lost faith in human kindness, someone who teaches at
Kean Elementary in Wooster, Ohio forwarded the following letter. The
letter was sent to the principal's office after the school had sponsored
a luncheon for the elderly. An old lady received a new radio at the
lunch as a door prize and was writing to say thank you. This story is a
credit to all humankind. Forward to anyone you know who
might need a lift today.
Dear Kean Elementary:
God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent senior
citizens luncheon. I am 84 years old and live at the Sprenger Home for
the Aged. All of my family has passed away. I am all alone now and it's
nice to know that someone is thinking of me. God bless you for your
kindness to an old forgotten lady. My roommate is 95 and has always had
her own radio, but before I received one, she would never let me listen
to hers, even when she was napping. The other day her radio fell off the
nightstand and broke into a lot of pieces. It was awful and she was in
tears. She asked if she could listen to mine, and I told her to kiss my

It was especially toasty and humid here today. I tried to stay out at the pool for as long as possible, but Wyatt got bored.
We came home and Wyatt managed to get into several bottles of shampoo, lotion, and make-up by snaking his hands underneath some cabinet doors with not-so-effective plastic safety locks on them. It only takes a few minutes for him to squeeze an entire bottle of shampoo into a bowl and start spreading it across the counter with a toothbrush. Still, I'm very happy (pathetically proud) that he put the goo into a bowl and not all over the carpet. Anyway, sad to say, this scenario happened twice today. I didn't put the lotions far enough back into the cupboards and maybe his arms are longer than I thought.

Uh my son has discovered it's fun to run your finger nails down the
I was trying to get things cleaned up yesterday for inspections that will happen some time today. My mother was here on my computer and supposed to be keeping Michael out of my hair while I cleaned his room. Which has been messy since he got out of school because he never lets me get it clean. Anyways he was in the bathroom and fussing. I thought he was pooping and went in to give him a book. No he had pooped in his pants and was trying to clean himself up. My mother was oblivious to it all. I snapped and got very mad. I was mad at her but poor Michael got in the way of that stream of anger... I think she finally figured it out that if she was going to help it means she needed to actually do something with him. So she took him out to supper so I could finish his room.

:::: Rolling eyes:::: Where did everybody go mmm? Sure is quiet in here.
Today feels like a Sunday, though unsure why. I have today and tomorrow to get my house all tidy. I redid my bed room today. The Glade Berry Blossom carpet powder... hmmm my room smells so pretty now. So cleaning and also hitting my treadmill today, I am off to a decent start on the diet.
I live in the Home to the World's Greatest County Fair. I was sitting here reading the attraction line-up on a brochure I got. We have Trisha Yearwood, Brobin Blue, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Josh Turner, Luke Bryan, and the Beach Boys for our concerts. Two nights of auto races. And then of course alot of free shows all over the fair grounds. Fire shows, Big Cats, some Pot Belly Pig show, ect. But the funniest thing is a magician/comedian who will be here. His name is the same as Michael's Father... First and Last :) Of course our David is not that funny or magical, and I do not forsee him coming down for the fair to even spend time with us. Unless his sisters are coming for a concert... Which I could totally see one of them being in the same town and not calling to see Michael.
Today was very important to my daughter. My mom and I took the girls to Sam's Club and while we were there a woman passed out on the floor in the main aisle. My daughter wants to be a doctor more than anything else in the world and is absolutely fascinated with Ambulances. So, a couple minutes after we saw this woman laying on the floor a police officer showed up and my daughter asked me if an ambulance was coming. I told her one was on the way. A minute later the paramedics walked in with the stretcher and everything (we have a toy ambulance that includes a very realistic stretcher). We had to watch everything. They placed the woman on the stretcher and started to walk her out to the ambulance. We walked out and watched them place the woman in the ambulance and close the doors. Then I started walking to the car. Instead of coming with my daughter made my mom stay on the curb in case the ambulance decided to drive away. She really wanted to see that happen. We left and she got a little mad and said she wanted to follow the ambulance. I told her we couldn't. We got home and the first thing she did was run in the door and scream up to grandpa that she saw an ambulance.
One, my shower is leaking into the girl downstairs bathroom again. And they have done nothing. And this new maintenance staff actually fixes things usually. We finally got our washer fixed, I think. My neighbor next door and I are scared to try it and lose money in it...
