I knitted and crocheted all day and watched my Spartans, upset and stun the unbeaten Buckeyes of Ohio State. My Spartans using 2 second-string quarter backs because our main man had a shoulder injury. It was amazing and quite unexpected!!!!
Sunday, I stayed in all day too because my drive-way wasn't cleared and my car covered with 16.8 inches of snow. John was still in the Upper Peninsula with his dying sister and did not get home until late last night.
At around 10:00, I heard a knock at my door. It was Jackie's three grandchildren. The youngest one (11) asked, "May we please clear off your driveway for you?"
"Sure. May I please give you some money for doing it?"
"No ma'am. We just want to do it. We just did grandma's and we still want to do yours."
"Okay. If you really want to."
"Yes we do! Thank you so much. God bless you!"
Nine kids in that family. All home schooled in a Christian group. They remind me of Karen's kids.
It seems to me that these kinds of kids get such a kick out of just helping people with no thought for anything in repayment. Earning stars in their Heavenly crowns.
I got my 3" inch memory foam mattress topper Friday, opened it and let it lay flat until Sunday afternoon. Man that thing is heavy!!! I got it on the bed and slept on it for the first time last night.
It is nothing like I thought (and feared) it would be. I did not sink into it. I was afraid I would not be able to roll over or get out of the "hole" in the morning. It is like a nice firm mattress--not hard, but nice and supportive.
I must have slept well because I went to sleep on my right side and woke up this morning, still on my right side and the covers on the left side of the bed were still in place, just like I had made the bed. Amazing!
Usually, if I sleep on one side all night long, the scar area of my hip replacement is kind of sore. Not this morning. I could easily get off the bed, just swung my legs over to the side and stood up. I don't have to push myself up from the bed, which helps my painful left shoulder.
My bed was already high, but with the added 3", when I stand by it, the edge comes up to just below my bottom, so it is easy to get in and out of. Now, if you were 5'4" with a high mattress to start with, you might need a ladder! LOL
It is perfect!
This morning, John called to see if I needed him to remove any snow from my drive-way or car. He sounded exhausted and I imagine he was. It's a 350 mile drive up to where his sister is.
I told him, "Nope. My drive-way is all cleared off."
Then I went out and
Of course, it was wet and heavy. I had to use my plastic snow shovel to get the first two layers off the roof, trunk and hood. I was exhausted, so I hopped in the car, started it up, turned on the front and rear defrosters and just let it run for 20 minutes. After my Soap, I took off up to Wal-Mart.
Sunny tomorrow and Wednesday and 50's, will clear all the snow away from my car and probably most of the grass.
Andrew sent me a message early this morning that he had a dental appointment after school so we are going out for supper Tuesday night.
