Ahhhh, I'm sitting =)

I'm still alive, I'm still kicking......just not as high =) There was a sweet resident at the nursing home where I worked that always said that. It made me smile every time. Still does.

Didn't sit much today other than in a car....feels good to sit with my feet propped up, even if it's only for a short time.

Am very behind in blogging. I have 3 birthday people to highlight. I'll get to it..........

Extremely busy....
  •  Ellen has camp this week and next. Two trips to Lancaster each day. (45 min, at least, round trip plus wait time when we get there and wait time when I pick her up) Not getting a whole lot done at home!
  • BIG family week-end coming up. Food to make. Food to purchase. (I was at 3 grocery stores today) My kids and I will feed the bunch of hungry Witmer's on Saturday evening. 40-45 of them! It takes a lot of food! Boxes and bags every where!
  • Laundry and lots of packing to do....have to take bedding and towels. Not staying at a hotel!
  • Babysitting 3 days this week as usual.
  • Sunday night and Monday sister time! Mary Ellen was 65 in May. She really wanted some sister time for her birthday. Couldn't make it work except for when the family retreat was happening. So, Mary Ellen from PA, Jeanie from PA, Barb from ID, Betty from NH and I are staying at a hotel Sunday night. Sadly, Rose from GA has to get back home and will not be able to join us. We always have the best times when together!
Time to make dinner....really, it's past time but, better late than never! Corn on the cob and Chicken Cordon Bleu (the frozen, ready for the oven kind) on the menu tonight.

Blessings to you.......

Busy times, for sure. I'm happy that Ellen is enjoying camp. I know you will enjoy time with family. Take care, dear Doris.
