Yesterday The chaos cloud returned.
First I got up late because I overslept . That being caused by being up too late the night before.
I wanted to get to my computer but discovered three of the five grand kids had beat me to it.
I felt bad because I really wanted to visit the people who had written flash 55s. Finally I begged enough time to at least comment on G man’s blog that mine was posted.
Then the controlling group ( ie Betty and Pennie) decided we should go to Country Buffet for lunch. Have you ever ridden in a van with five grandkids who believe loud is better than soft. Add in my hearing aid and my head was buzzing. Of course this is the time we had to stop for gas. Finally we got to the restaurant. I rode my scooter in, Pennie went in on crutches, the others just sort of poured in. We got a table for eight , put a chair out with a pillow on it so Pennie could elevate her leg. On my way to the table an old man stopped me and wanted to talk about my scooter. I think he was lonely. But he stalled me long enough to keep me from laying down the one plate at a time rule. You took only one plate and couldn’t have anything else until you ate what was on it. Without that rule they take and get two or three plates and end up leaving a lot of food uneaten. Then there was the toilet plunger. My youngest grandson had the rubber end of a toilet plunger that was used in a number of games at the VBS. He was pushing it down on the table. People going by would never know it had never been used in a toilet.
Then I went to get food, try driving a scooter with one hand and holding a plate with the other. There were hamburger buns and no hamburgers. There were beautiful grilled hot dogs and no hot dog buns. There was no chopped onion or relish. But there was mashed potatoes. Somehow I got a bun, a hot dog, a helping of potatoes, and some butter on the plate and then transported it back to the table. I sent a grand kid to get me some pop .
After lunch we went to a medical supply place to get a wheelchair. Betty and Pennie went in and I was left in the van with the five kids. I am still sane. I am still sane. They were gone for what seemed like forever. By the time they returned the heat and humidity were getting to me and I had them take me home. They went off to the movies. I visited flash 55s.
I love those kids but …….
I am still sane. I am.
My crew has gone to an adventure but with the temperature hovering near 90 degrees I couldn't breath well out of the house and its air conditioning so I stayed home. Of course, I could have stayed in the car with that air conditioner but what fun is that?
So I have used this time to do some visiting and I ran across this blog.
I thought I might try it. So here is my try.
The Chaos has returned in full.
