Have we ever had a Labor Day weekend in western Pa. as nice and sunny and hot as this one? Not for a long time. Considering the sucky summer we had, August and even now is gorgeous.
I found out that D (Donna) was in Erie on Presque Isle the day before we were....bummer. It really is pretty. I've always liked to go there. The kids were never crazy about Lake Erie. Hey, 86 miles from home...sand and some surf. The Isle extends, I think, about 10 or so miles out into Lake Erie like a hook. One side is the bay; the other the Lake. There is a bike/walking trail the whole way around. There wasn't a bike to rent so we hung out at the beach and carried on.
Becky was whiter than Casper the ghost and got burnt. We had seafood at a great restaurant and headed home. I would have loved to have stayed the night but Becky wanted to get home. Meg and I hung out at the pool yesterday. Hot, it was and gorgeous again. Ribs on the grill....yum.
Now, back to reality. I got my car inspected today and yet again had problems. I had to put $150 into have the brake calipers cleaned and lubricated and, of course inspected. This wasn't covered by the warranty. Sucks....blah.
And my BF and I have to be at the hospital at 5am tomorrow morning. Sugery at 7. His brother will be there. Not my choice but I'll deal with it. He's a handful, though. I have a headache and am jumping down everybody's throat tonight. I'm fit to be tied. I want to run away to Erie again and just lay on the darned beach. BTW: my doctor started me on Zocor. Dang, my cholesterol is borderline high. So back to tweeking mydiet again and more walking.
I just want to have fun. Megan just wants to have fun. Poor Becky is so serious and can't understand how goofy we get. She thinks we have no stress...boo ha ha. She is still weepy and sad about her BF. And I'm rambling like a fool right now.
Prayers, good thoughts, etc. please for the surgery. I'm off to walk Grizzly. I sort of like going when it's dark now for some reason.
Love you all.....Chris
