HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!

Happy Father’s Day! 

We spent yesterday afternoon celebrating a very special little lady’s birthday. 


Our grandniece turns 8 on Monday! Here she is with her dad and my grands!
The temperature was scorching so the party moved inside for the most part. The kids did have a fantastic water balloon fight that I witnessed from inside.
Days like this are so wonderful. I never take family time for granted anymore.

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!

Last weekend was full of family fun!

Natalie played her first softball game. 

Our grandnephew Dakota turned 6!

And on Sunday we spent the day at the zoo! 

This week was spent catching up after taking 2 whole days off. That and dealing with a Microsoft Update that really created havoc with all my Microsoft Office documents and spreadsheets. I had to do a system restore to get them back and then Thursday night the update ran again calling for another 2-hour system restore. Contacted Microsoft and they weren’t much help. The first person said it was a Windows problem and transferred me to a second that said it was an office problem and transferred me back. I hung up, but have an email to contact them when it happens again. A techy friend also gave us some things to look for. Microsoft also sent me a survey asking if I would recommend their Window 10 to my friends. Not likely, after this week.  

Kaden did come home from the zoo with us. It was so nice having him here. Even with his broken arm, he can still play his video games.  I had a few memory flashes of Kris. Kaden tells me all about his games just the way Kris used to. He gets involved in the games just like Kris used to too. Kris didn’t have headphones and a mic at Kaden’s age. I don’t even know if there were available way back when. Kris did have them when he was older and Kaden sounds just like he did then. We also had a fun time together doing other things. We should have had a video of us trying to use the manual can opener. Me with my 1 good hand and he with his. We gave up and had sandwiches 🙂

GDPR – General Data Protection Regulations

General Data Protection Regulations went into effect May 25. I spent part of last Sunday afternoon making sure I had everything covered and creating a new Legal Disclosure Page.  I want to thank Suzanne at Under the Covers for giving a clear and concise blog post helping all of us bloggers know the facts and how to handle this new regulation. If you are having trouble setting things up on your blog, be sure to check out her post. It sure helped me.

NetworkedBlogs Calls It Quits

After many years NetworkedBlogs is saying farewell. They were not able to make the very popular project profitable even with “millions of people.” I did not know it but about 3 years ago they stopped accepting new user registrations. I did notice that the widget on my blog was no longer showing followers quite a while ago.

I loved receiving the daily email with the new blog posts that I was following. I also used their service to have my blog posts automatically shared on Facebook. WordPress Jetpack does have a feature for this but it only allows the post to be shared on 1 page. I like my posts to show up both on my personal page and my blog fan page, so I will be manually posting to one of those unless I find another way. If you have any ideas, please let me know.

NetworkedBlogs in still posting today, their announcement doesn’t give a firm date as to when they will pull the plug. They appear to be keeping the Symphony Tools product up and running but the free plan does not include cross-posting and the smallest paid plan is $14 per month. I have found their “Free Goodies” like “Sharing Buttons” to be very unreliable, one day they work on my blog and the next day they are gone, so I will not be signing up for their plan.

OUCH!

So Thursday evening daughter #1 called saying “Have you seen my Facebook post?”

I replied, “Nope, reading and watching television.”

Her “Are you sitting down?”

Me: “I am now.”

Her “We are at the ER with Kaden, he took a little tumble off his bike.”

Me “Is he all right?”

Her “Some nice road rash.”

Me “And??”

Her “Broken arm, he will need surgery tomorrow to set it, put a pin in.”

Me “Can I talk to him?”

Her “Yeah, he is a little scared and wants to talk to you. He has been given pain meds so he’s a little loopy.”

Hearing his voice settled me right down and then I told him that both his mom and Uncle Kris had broken arms and his Aunt Z.Z. and Uncle Jayme had their share of injuries too. His mom and I also assured him he was not going to miss too much school and that we would still be able to do all the things we have planned for the summer.

Well, the surgery was pushed to Saturday to allow the swelling to go down a bit. He came through it with flying colors. A small incision to insert the pin. It will be removed when he is totally healed. Also, no cast, just a splint and ace bandage. He went home shortly after. I will be going to see him in person tomorrow because I have to 🙂 I will probably take him out for ice cream depending on how he feels. According to his mom and dad, the bike survived too and will be ready for him when he is ready.

Here is a collage to document the memorable event 🙂

On Monday, Mr. Dollycas and I celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary quietly with a dinner at home. 

The rest of the week was normal blogging and reading. Things sure brightened up when the boys arrived Friday night and Natalie arrived on Saturday. I had recorded the Royal Wedding so of course, us girls had to watch that. Aunt Z.Z. took Remi for a walk to hunt down Pokemon creatures. Kaden had a free download of an X-Box game that he has been wanting for a while but he was nice enough to share time will his brother and cousin. The sandbox is also set to be filled with new sand and we have some flowers to plant. The weekend will be fun-filled and Nana and Papa will be tuckered out when they all head home later today.

My week started with Natalie’s Spring Concert and supper with the little lady at Culver’s. 

There was a little setback with my sciatica after we got home but it felt good enough by Saturday to get out of the house for a haircut and grocery shopping. The haircut was a treat from my youngest daughter. I love the time we get to spend together. As I write this post (Saturday) I am looking forward to Matt Kenseth’s first race this season tonight. I am so glad he is back racing. 

I hope all you moms have a wonderful Mother’s Day!!

I am so happy to tell you my back is starting to feel better. I was able to attend Kaden’s Spring Concert Thursday night and plan to attend Natalie’s tomorrow night. Rest seems to be the key factor and I will continue taking a mid-day break for a while. I need to feel good enough to enjoy this beautiful weather. Escaping to my chair outside with a good book sounds delightful.

He’s Back

It was just 2 weeks ago that I wrote how my Sundays had changed since Matt Kenseth was no longer racing in the Nascar Cup Series. Well, early last week it was leaked and then announced on Wednesday that Matt would be sharing driving duties with Trevor Bayne in the #6 car owned by Roush Fenway Racing for the remainder of the 2018 season. Trevor does have MS so how much this decision comes from his health concerns is yet to be said. I and the rest of Matt’s fans are so excited to have him back on the track where he belongs. His first race will be May 12 at Kansas. This appears to be a multi-year deal that could lead to a career off the track at Roush when Matt is ready to retire. Details were still being worked out when the press conference was held on Wednesday. I am glad to see Matt back at Roush where he started and ready to watch races again. I will also be needing some new fan apparel. 

On the homefront. I am still dealing with the pain in my backside, sciatica. 🙂 The doctor has prescribed rest and ibuprofen. Rest is not easy with my blog and book tours but I am trying to get as much rest as possible.  I know rest helps because I do feel better in the evenings, but mornings are pretty painful. It is on the side of my paralysis so that makes things extra interesting. I just hope it passes soon, so I can get back to normal or what normal is usually like for me.

Well, my day yesterday did not go as planned. I have been excited for weeks about attending my granddaughter’s dance recital. But my body had other plans. My sciatica decided it was the day to rear its ugly head and by 10 a.m. I couldn’t even straighten up let alone get out of the house. So Papa and Aunt Z.Z. left without me. I spent the day in bed reading and watching Barbara Bush’s funeral and other stuff on television. When my husband got home he helped me to the computer so I could write this post. I am hoping this sciatica resolves a lot quicker than the last time I had it.

While I didn’t get to see her dance in person I do know she did a wonderful job. Here is one of the portraits in her costume. I hope her daddy was watching from heaven.

Rockin’ Jump

Yesterday we attended my granddaughter’s 6th Birthday Party at Rockin’ Jump. The kids big and small had a great time and because of a hidden wheelchair ramp, I was able to view all the fun from trampoline dodgeball to a rock climb wall and a harness thing that threw the kids in the air. Natalie was flying high, jumping and climbing. What a great place!

The boys and Uncle Jaymeson got in on the fun too! Nana, Papa and Aunt Z.Z. stayed on the sidelines. 🙂

Days with my family are absolutely priceless. The boys did spend the weekend with us too because their mom had to work. Movies, video games, nerf guns, and so much fun filled the time. It will probably be an early night tonight. I wish I had 1/4 of their energy.
