Well, Saturday on St. Patrick's Day we went to the parade in a town we used to live in. Wonderful Irish music before the parade. Also, the Dublin Dash - a 2 mile race.
We were sittingin the 3rd row back from the street to watch the parade. There were lots of young kids around in front of us because the closer you are, the more candy you can catch. Then it happened, this young woman came through from the front of the crowd by us and she was swearing a blue storm. I calmly asked her to stop swearing and said there are kids here. She didn't stop. She walked behind me and after she got past and was standing about 4 feet away from me and still swearing. By swearing, I mean that every other word was the F... word. Well, I didn't want the kids to hear this continue so I rose my voice and hollered at her "Shut Up". She glared at me and hollered back and how are you going to make me do that. I lowered my voice and said I just want you to stop swearing. She kept on swearing but at least walked away from within earshot of any kids. I'm not sure what I would have done if she had advanced towards me. Everyone around me, mostly women said they were glad that I took her on. Later her mother came through and apologized for her daughter's bad mouth. My hubby who would have protected me was off taking pics of the parade.
Our niece's daughter was the Irish Lassie, the princess of the parade. After the parade we went to their house for a picnic. A few other relatives were there and we had a nice time.
Got home around 7 PM and got a call from my dad that his girlfriend/my best friend was in the hospital. I went to see her the next day and they said she had pneumonia. She woke up on Friday morn and couldn't catch her breath, just gasping. My dad drove her to the hospital and the small hospital had no empty beds so they took her to a city one by ambulance. My dad doesn't like to call people including relatives. My friend couldn't remember my no. so she told dad he had to call me Saturday. She was discharged yesterday. I called her this afternoon and she sounds a lot better. She has asthma and COPD but won't quit smoking.
It's very hard for me to vaccuum my house. I can't use my upright machine because I get dizzy and have fallen while doing so. One time, I had to call my husband to come home from work to help me off the floor. I had to scoot on my butt from our bedroom to the living room to get the phone. I couldn't get my self up because I can't kneel on my knees and my right arm isn't strong enough to help push me up. I shattered that wrist many years ago. So now, I have to sit to vaccuum. I use my small shop vac and sit on a folding chair and have to keep moving back when I've reached as far as I can. Vaccuum, move back, vaccuum. It took me two hours.
My hubby is gone this afternoon. He went to pick up our oldest daughter and take her to a doctor's appt. She lives about 15 miles away and her appt. is in our town. They were going out to lunch before the appt. She wanted to spend time alone with her dad. I just think she finds it easier to share things with him. I used to resent that she'd rather confide in her dad or her mother-in-law instead of me. I've worked through it. She needs to confide in someone. She will be coming here and we'll get to talk after her appt. since my hubby has a meeting tonight in her town and it didn't make much sense to make two trips. They're here so signing off.
Excited and then...
