We baked bread and made fried bread yesterday afternoon.
I needed to order new sheets for the bed as the fitted sheet
tore on hubby's side of the bed.
Loving that the weather has been so nice and sunny lately
and that the snow has really melted. The fog isn't so nice but
comes with all the melting.

No respect for authority and the teachers cannot "make"
the students do anything. He has boys who purposely goof
around for weeks, play the music wrong on purpose and then
2 weeks before a concert, decide to go along with the rest, The
parents don't enforce respect either. Lots of west river cowboys.

It is a shame to lose another teacher. It is hard to keep good people in the profession. People just get burned out with all the other stuff they have to contend with at school. If you could just go into your classroom and work with kids, but it is all the other who-ha that goes on that makes you crazy.

DS got back from Guard training and passed his test
to become a sergeant. I believe he said E6 is his new rank.
A pay raise goes with it but not sure how much. He will finish
out the year with Kimball and then give up teaching. I am sad
to see him give up the career that he was so passionate about
for so long but I will support his decision.

Poor animal but that happens so often.
Hubby goes to SF on the 30th for his lung
biopsy and needs to stay overnight after the
procedure. Hoping it is just precaution and that
this spot is an old scar.
I go to the dentist Tuesday afternoon and will get
a new pair of dentures. My first set are almost 10
years old and worn down to almost nothing. I really
should have gone sooner but it seems I only take off
work for hubby issues. But SIL is concerned that this
may be more than it appears. Time will tell.

When it was dark this morning I saw a car with its flashers one by the side of the road, before I could react there was a dead deer (or pieces part of a dead deer) all over the road. I tried to miss the majority of it, but I did "thump-thump" over some part. Gross. I made a call to the sheriff's department because this was going to get dangerous, but when they finally answered, the said that someone was coming out. Hope that they hurried. When I drove home tonight they had removed the pieces parts and things were back to normal, or whatever you consider normal for Highway 50.

Our annual meeting drew 15, which is about average for us
now. I remember when the ladies were allowed to become
voting members and we would have 50 people attend. The
congregation is just getting smaller. We were finished in less
than an hour. All the officers stayed the same-just glad we
have enough willing to keep their positions.
Glad the weather is milder. So much snow melted yesterday
and the streets are almost clear.

What is it with some people when they get into a car? They lose all perspective, and most of their common sense. Glad that no one was seriously hurt. The car being totaled is bad enough.

We had our annual meeting on Sunday. We decided to do it between the 8:15 and the 10:45 services. To draw people in we offered them breakfast so it was kind of a "working" breakfast. We had more people come than in other years. Sometimes we worry about making a quorum so we can do business. We had a good number of people there. Amazing what scrambled eggs, sausage and hash browns can do to boost attendance.

Very long day at the office. DD and GD were in a car accident
on Monday as another driver who had stopped on the side of
the road decided to take off in a hurry and barrel into her when
she had already moved into the passing land outside of Yankton.
Her car is totaled but only bumps and bruises for them. Guess
looking both ways is outdated advice.
Voters meeting tonight at church. Happy Hump Day.

MIL's appointment with the cardiologist went well although it
took longer so hubby wasn't home until almost 6. Then a quick
supper before our joint church meeting to move ahead with
calling a pastor for our 4 small churches.
I spent my day off creating a space for the chicks in the basement
to settle into out back. What an event to try to put up a fence
divider by myself but I got it done, moved the chicks and went
out numerous times to make sure they were adapting. Then I had
all the farm chores to do. I wore myself out. I will be glad to work
at the office today.

Last week was just one thing after another. Sounds like you with the medical appointments. They called me to reschedule one of mine--but that is in July. They gave me two choices for that day either 8:30 in the morning or 3:20 in the afternoon. I took the afternoon. To get from Yankton to Sioux Falls by 8:30 am means getting up way before the chickens. Plus I do not want to do morning traffic in Sioux Falls.

At least we won't be scraping ice off the windshield.

Very poor day for market but hubby thought it was worth it.
We came home to make BBQ ribs for DD and the GC with DS
here as well. We made 4 racks of ribs and sent leftovers home
with DS and enough for 2 meals at least for SIL. He is working
nights until Wednesday.

We are going to Yankton today to sell eggs and reduce
the inventory a bit. I have texted our customers and hope
they came. The office is closed tomorrow so we will the
chicks out then. The next eggs start hatching Monday.
We invited DD and the GC over for BBQ pork ribs tonight.
SIL is working nights at the Corps so we may send leftovers
home for him. Stay safe in the cold.

I bought my wire and have it laying flat on the basement
floor as it can rolled up. Breaker kept tripping in the barn so
I unplugged the brooder lamp last night. Too cold and dark
to feel like messing around with it. The barn is warm enough
for now. 47 mph wind gusts-BRRR!

Lots of schools cancelled on the east side of the state and
a blizzard warning through Saturday. We did add another
brooder lamp to the chick barn out back. I do need to buy
the fence wire I need to divide up the barn and better do
it today. Hubby and DS need to do lots of extra chores before
the weather gets really bad.

On the downside of January and this will be a wicked cold
weekend. We will not move the oldest chicks out of the basement
until Sunday and will not be taking eggs to Yankton. Time to
hunker down and stay safe. Hoping the One Act Play can still
be held on Friday night.

Roads were not bad so the trip to Sioux Falls was uneventful.
Hubby was there early but the doctors were behind schedule.
No new issues with the urologist. Not excited about the cold
weather that is on it's way.

Short periods of freezing ice late in the afternoon so
I covered the windshield after work. Hubby's PET scan
was a little vague so now they want to do a biopsy. Nothing
is scheduled but there is so much going on. Off to see his
urologist today, then take his mother to cardiologist on the
20th and the orthopedic surgeon on the 27th and also see
the dentist at the VA on 30th. That is 6 trips to Sioux Falls
in one month. What next?

No worry about being up all night. I slept like a log.

Have a school board meeting tonight. Luckily it is in Tabor which shortens the drive home up quite a bit. Since we are a consolidated district, we move the school board meeting around to each town, so I can't complain with it being in Tabor tonight. Even if the weather decides to get nasty it is a much shorter drive than trying to get home from Springfield.

Stay warm.

I didn't work on taxes. After church, I had to clean up after
communion, then decided to work outside with the baby chicks.
It is too cold and the water freezes overnight so we bought
a pan warmer and I rearranged the feeders. In a week of so,
I need to get the chicks out of the basement. That will require
buying some fencing and get it installed. Hubby is no help at all.
Back to work this morning.
Have a great Monday.

Wound up running a bunch of errands this afternoon (in the snow). Yipes. It was good to get home. Spent an hour reorganizing my kitchen cupboard that with new spice racks. It needed organization. (Why do I have two bottles of ground cinnamon??)

Fell asleep on the couch. Now I supposed I will be up all night.

Good grief. That is crazy. I worry about the people who don't understand the system, or who don't have the skills to advocate for themselves.

Can't believe it is going to be so cold next week. Makes me want to burrow into my bed and stay there. Don't think I can get away with that.

Full body PET scan that took 2 hours to complete. Guess the VA
did not want to cut corners. Hubby is content to wait for the results
but that means another trip to Sioux Falls and another day out of the
office.
We did stop at the Social Security office to correct my benefits. We
were told one amount last fall, then another amount when I officially
signed up. I spoke with another agent after getting my award letter
and he said it was correct. But the head agent in Yankton has done
a complete review and I will not lose $500 worth of benefits due to
an error in their calculations. That is too much money to leave on
the table every month.

Lots accomplished yesterday and we drove to Irene to watch
GS play basketball. His team won and it was a good game.
Hubby saw the dentist at the VA and had two teeth worked on.
Temporary crown so he goes back in 2 weeks-another drive
to Sioux Falls. We go for the PET scan today and see about this
spot on his lung that he now says has been there for years. But I
caught his calling it a "mass" and asked him where that came from.
The doctor said "spot" and I was there to hear it. I told him not to
create drama that wasn't there-at least not yet. Thankfully the person
he was talking to missed that. Don't make things worse that they are.

Computer and scanner were not connected. Called Geek Squad and
they couldn't fix it so waited all afternoon for the Golden West techs to
come check it out. No idea either until they talked about the hard
wiring that was in place yesterday. We had a Net Gear router that they
said we wouldn't need anymore. We plugged that back in and everything
is working. So glad I had stored it in the back room.

That does make me wonder too. At least she has yet to see the
cardiologist and I feel he would be the one who would have the
most to say if she can handle another surgery now.
Hubby went to see a local doctor for his lingering cough but was
prescribed medication for the cough only. No other issues noted
but at least he didn't wait until this got out of hand.
We had the techs hook up the fiber optic in the office yesterday
so I had 2 1/2 hours of down time. I found plenty to do but will
have to play catch up this morning.

Yipes. Hope things go well for your husband. I would be worried your MIL isn't really strong enough for another surgery, yet. I would think the doctor would be a little less eager. After my experiences last fall I am a little jaded on the subject. I felt like I was be referred for procedures that I didn't need, but made money for the clinic. I wondered if I didn't have as good a health care plan as I do, would they have been referring me for all these tests.

I started working on tax preparations last night. Just sorted
through the receipts for farmers market supplies. I want to
get going early this year.
Working on getting MIL in Home Health services. She went to
the doctor and has bone on bone issues with one hip and insists
she needs to have the replacement done now. She is hardly
recovered from the last surgery but the doctor is making all the
arrangements. Hubby has 3 doctor's appointments this month
and she has 4 plus a possible surgery. This gets old.

I know it is hard when there doesn't seem to be enough people interested or willing to help.

Took Bella for a walk this evening. We have a little LED lantern that I took with us. It was a little slick out there and probably was not the safest walk, but we made it without breaking a hip.

There's a thought!
We had talked about taking down the tree at church on Saturday
but SIL would be working so we did it after services. Just hubby
and I, DD and her family and her MIL. No one else stayed even
though they saw us working. Next year will have to be different.
After we got started, we just decided to finish the whole thing and
not bother to wait for help later that may or may not come. Sad that
our congregation has gotten so small.
I did make a batch of grape jam for our next market in Yankton. I
think people are looking for something beside plum and raspberry.

I got chilled on Friday and was cold all yesterday. I am hoping that I warm up today. I didn't walk in the halls at the hospital yesterday, which probably would have warmed me up. There is a section in the tunnel that is super-heated due to all of the heating pipes hanging overhead. Perhaps I should just do laps in that area today. LOL.

We sold 35 dozen eggs total yesterday, two squash and
sauerkraut. It was worth the trip according to hubby. Thankfully
the weather was fair and not windy like this morning.
We will have church services today and need to take down the
Christmas decorations. There was no time this week and no one
to help. Maybe a few people can assist today.

I covered a lot of ground at work and was able to balance
the checkbooks, mine and ours, and boxed up all the receipts
so I can start on tax prep whenever the time allows. I do not need
to be in a hurry but would rather do it now that wait until hubby
gets excited.
We will be in Yankton this morning with eggs and noodles,
jams and sauerkraut. Glad the weather will be warm and no
snow. The wind will be the only unwelcome guest at the table.

Odd day at work as it started out slow but gained momentum
as the day went on. Once the phone started ringing, it was non-stop.
MIL and SIL were here for lunch and so I had to go home early to
make lunch and come back late. Hubby was pretty slack with
helping get lunch made but it turned out well. He still runs out of
energy quickly but his cough is much better.

Back to school yesterday, but the kids don't come until Monday. That was good. Today we have a full day of professional development.

Need to get going, as I have to help set up for the first speaker.

The chicks were moved yesterday. I needed to shovel snow
so we could get the 4 bags of feed in the shed. I found the extra
feed we had left from the fall so we didn't need all 4 bags just
yet but will in time. We took down the Christmas tree and set
up all the necessities for making noodles and did 4 batches.
MIL and SIL are coming today and I am to make supper, I guess.
Hubby made sure to bake an angel food cake as Mom loves that.

Happy New Year! We ate a quiet dinner uptown with DS
and then home to relax. In bed before 11-same as usual.
I prepped the barn so we can take some chicks outside
today. At least the older ones can get moved. Hubby has
made all the plans and will be watching me and DS shovel
snow. He cannot bring himself to be outside for more than
a few minutes. I told him he has to start walking in the house
a little at a time. We will see what he does.

Hopefully the sun will help get things melted. Take it easy. We are babysitting the kids' dogs. The Labradoodle has separation anxiety. Should be interesting. Bella dislikes both of them, so she is giving us the evil eye. This is not the way she expected to spend New Year's Eve.

I worked all day then came home to shovel the sidewalk again.
I think I was outside 20 minutes. The wind was still blowing so I
am not sure what will have moved around overnight.
Hubby's cough is better but his energy level is low. He just sits
or lays around and doesn't accomplish much. He did make his
own breakfast since I was at the office. He is trying to stay caught
up with washing and candling the eggs. DS has been doing all the
chores-thankfully.

We got home at 3:45 yesterday. Looks like about 3 inches of snow down here when we drove in. I was tired of four hours in the car so I went up to the hospital and walked the "tunnel" for an hour. That got my 7000 steps in for the day. It was still snowing when I came home, so I don't know what our total is right now.

Not going anywhere today if I can help it. May do some more walking at the hospital, as that looks like the best opportunity to do some walking without frostbite.

Glad you had pleasant weather and hope the roads
were safe to travel on when you got back. By my estimate
we had 12 inches of snow but so much blew around, it is
had to be accurate. I shoveled snow 3 times yesterday.
The last time was when we had to drive the new car
down to do farm chores. I put rugs in the front to keep
the floor mats clean. The chicken barn is very wet inside
from all the chickens and high humidity. Hubby and DS
will have to do chores going ahead. Work load today should
be light but you never know.

Well we start back today. We are skipping church here because during the holiday week they only do one service and that is at 10. That means we wouldn't get on the road until later in the afternoon and we don't want to drive into whatever when it is dark.

Had a great visit here. It started to rain pretty hard here last night. They had the warmest Christmas on record here in Ames, so there is no snow in sight anywhere. They aren't scheduled for snow here either.

Since it was only rainy/misty, we drove to Mission Hill and had
a great day with the children that were there. DS did not come
down from Mitchell, which was a shame. DS stayed home in Menno,
which was the best for all. He did chores and was content.
We had a nice meal of ham, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes,
green bean casserole and sweet corn casserole. We pooled the
leftover cookies but no one really touched them. The kids and
GC played dominoes and the littles ran around with their new toys.
Hubby spent most of the time on the couch and we left at 2.
Snow moved in overnight and glad to be home. No church today.

Spent all morning at the VA and hubby needs to have
a PET scan done in Yankton on the 10th as the CT scan
showed a spot on the back of his right lung. He acted as if
this was the first he heard of it but he tells his mother that
is an old spot. Since he never mentioned this to me before,
I think he was trying to reassure her. I will need to get to the
bottom of this, for my own peace of mind.
Luckily the traffic wasn't bad as he had me do all the driving.
Still trying to decide if we drive to Mission Hill this morning
or stay home.

DS decided he would not go to Grandma's and just wanted
to stay home. Sorry he felt that way but I just let it go.
We had a great meal and time spent visiting. The sweater I
bought for MIL was too small so I will return it. The Black Hills
Gold jewelry was perfect and she was very thrilled.
We came home mid-afternoon and just spent the rest of the
day quietly watching tv. Hubby's cough is a little better and
just hoping for clear weather when we drive to Sioux Falls tomorrow.
Hoping the VA doctor has some good news for us.

Merry Christmas!
Hubby is still struggling with a cough and no energy.
We go to MIL's this morning after church and I have been
trying to have everything ready to go. He may help carry
boxes to the car but that will be it.
Christmas Eve program in Freeman last night, GS's last
year so it will seem strange for us. No children left in our
little church. We changed paramemts last night and set up
for communion. Back to work tomorrow.

We made peanut butter blossoms last Saturday.
I made a banana cake yesterday, so we are kind of heavy on the sweets this week.

Just finished taking Bella for a walk. It was a damp cold, so we only walked for 35 minutes. That was plenty.

GD and GS are coming this morning to help bake Christmas cookies-
peanut butter blossoms. That is all that we will make. No sense in
baking cookies that will sit around until May and get thrown out or
we eat them and we don't need that.
Since the weather is nice, I may move the baby chicks out to the
barn this week. They have feathered out nicely.
Merry Christmas!

Hubby's cough comes and goes and now he has back
spasms. He spent most of the day in bed or on the couch
and went to bed early. He goes to the VA today for a urology
checkup and then back to the VA Friday for a pulmonary
fitness test. That, I am sure, will not turn out well. I think he
will need to have therapy of some sort but this could just be
me overthinking the situation. MIL is home now and we will
have Christmas at her house and see what develops.

Sometimes we don't think changes in other people's situations affects us, but I have been dealing with a co-worker at school who is having major issues with her health which she is denying. Unfortunately, the rest of us have had to pick up the slack and cover for her. I think that is why I am so tired at the end of this term. I am hoping she gets a handle on her health over the break, so we can get back to normal (whatever that is).

Hubby is still dealing with periods of exhaustion and keeps
asking me why it isn't getting better. I told him that his calorie
intake is way off but he says he has no appetite. I understand
and he has been eating poached eggs to boost his protein. I
think everything has just come to a head with his mom and
her health and possibly moving out of her house so he is a
little depressed.

You can never know how many people are going to show up for anything. We are such a mobile society anymore I just don't think people have an feeling of "hometown" any more.

I set up for coffee at church last night, later than I want to do so, but that's kind of the way my life is running right now. I am looking forward to the "break" as I am really feeling tired these days. My back started hurting yesterday so I sat in the reclining sofa with a heating pad on my back and fell asleep. Perhaps that is what I needed. I feel pretty good this morning.

Open house at the insurance office in the morning and we
had 7 clients stop by. 10 years ago we would have had 70
or 80 come in for coffee and cookies. It was a shame because
SIL and DD had a meat and cheese platter, cheesecake,
crackers and plenty of cookies and took most of it back with
them for the Open House in Irene. I am sure they did much
better there.

Still no news on the PET scan. Office Christmas Open House
tomorrow. Such a different season as we move along with our
vacancy pastor and most services out of town. I think this is a
sign of what our future holds.
I applied for Social Security benefits yesterday and talked with
a lady from Montana who is helping the Yankton office out as
they are short staffed. Too busy spending money to impeach a
president to hire government workers.

What a week. Things have been really crazy. Tomorrow starts semester tests. I don't have to supervise any of those, but it will be just a weird day.

I need to make something to take to the lunch potluck tomorrow. I am not really that motivated tonight, but I promised I would bring something so I had better figure that out.

Hubby needs a PET scan which sounds ominous. We
chose not to tell his mother as we don't want to scare her.
I feel the doctor wouldn't say do as soon as possible if she
didn't see something that shouldn't be there. Hubby is very
quiet but I know he is thinking the worst.

We are moving forward with a 4 point parish of churches too small
to afford our own minister but together, we can find someone who
doesn't need health insurance or retirement benefits. A few more
steps in the process but looking forward to 2020.
Hubby goes for a CAT scan of his lungs today to see what is
bothering him. The x-rays did not show any issues but the doctor
wants to make sure.

Lovely Christmas concert at DD's church last night as the
children presented the Christmas story. I remember how
wonderful the programs were when our children were young
and now only our 2 GC are in church. We have no other young
families with children. How sad.

Unusual Saturday. I had coffee with friends early in the
morning, talked to DS about doing chores as hubby was
not feeling well. He made his breakfast and went back to bed.
I took my car down to have the license plates put on and
get it washed-free service. Once home, I ate lunch and took
a short nap. Hubby still in bed. I went to DS's to put the
curtains back up in his bedroom and take home the clothes
I had bagged up from his closet to sort, wash or throw away
as he had a major infestation of bedbugs AGAIN! New mattress
and box spring and bed frame. I am so tired of this fight but
I guess if I lived there, I would have gotten rid of them a long
time ago. He is just a 10 year old who doesn't know he has a
problem and I cannot keep up with my own house and his too.
I did sweep 4 rooms downstairs so it looks better.

Hubby came home from the VA and went straight to bed
and stayed there most of the afternoon and evening. He
said it was a reaction to the shingles shot but I am not so
sure. I basically had only the tenderness for where I got
the shot. He also complained about his other shoulder hurting
but not sure what he did. Neither of us got much sleep last
night.
The 50th birthday party for the neighbor was fun and I was
glad I went with DS. At least he didn't just sit at home and
watch tv,, It is hard when you cannot hear any of the conversations.
His hearing aid needs repair again.

SIL was in the office yesterday afternoon and we covered
a few projects. I think I have finished all the ACA health
insurance clients so if they miss the deadline, it is not on me.
Hubby has a VA appointment today for routine checkups but
will get his last shingles shot today. I got mine yesterday and
I can barely feel it so all is good.

A couple of warmer days ahead.
MIL is not doing well so we are moving ahead with plans
for home health care in case she can go back home again.
Nothing is positive at this point just finally nudged hubby to
make the calls he has been putting off for so long. I call and
get information but I am not making any of the decisions.
I think his sisters are satisfied that I push him a little but I
don't want to upset them either. It will be what it will be.

It is winter, so I guess we have to expect the cold. I guess we can scroll back and look at the summer posts when we were waiting for it to get cold. Guess we're never satisfied. LOL. Will wind up walking at the hospital today (tonight) because it isn't going to cooperate to walk outside. Oh well.
