Not pregnant.  My daughter gave me a Mother's Day card she made herself.  Picture of a toilet, "sorry we got you sick".  And a gift of two passes to take Odin to open play at the gym.  Hold on, isn't this the same gym where he caught the stomach flu?   hihi  Today he was wearing one the new outfits I got him when I got him so dirty I had to buy him new clothes and give him a bath before I could take him home.  I'm not sure if this one is going to come clean after today.  They made me give him a bath and soak the clothes.  The child loves me though.  hihi

My sister came down with the stomach flu.  I feel so bad.  I thought I was over that when I went there on Saturday.  Now mom is going to get it.

$2,000 to replace my two cracked motor mounts at the dealer.  That sounds way overpriced.  I'm going to run it in to my local garage and see what they price it out at.

First time I'm not spending time with my daughter on her birthday and watching her open her gifts.  I had her all day yesterday for birthday shopping.  Her husband had something special planned for them today.  Kind of weird but kind of not.  For the 10 years I was married my husband totally blew my birthday off three times.  What I want for my daughter is someone to care as much for her as I do when I'm gone.  Look out for her and to treat her special once in a while.  He's stepping up to the plate and I need to move aside and let him do it.  I did leave her gifts to open for today.  Nobody goes without gifts to open on their birthday around me.  Cheesy

So instead, in the rain, I cleaned out the garage.  I had to hose off some of this stuff anyway.   hihi  Surprisingly, I didn't throw that much stuff out, maybe because I gave the trash can it's yearly bath.  Most of what left went out in the yard or in piles waiting to go into bleach water and be returned to the greenhouse.  And the car is full of stuff to go back to the garden or recycling.  Should I open the doors and show off for the neighbors?   hihi

On top of the $2,000 to fix the car, the dealer has discovered a coolant leak for another $1000 and an oil leak for $2000.   Shocked  Stopped by the garage I to get their estimate.  He agrees the coolant leak has to get fixed but I can live with a car that leaks oil.  He'll let me know tomorrow what they will charge.  When did car repairs get so expensive?  I'm good at identifying the issue and pretty sure I could have replaced some of these parts back in the day when they gave you room to work on an engine.  You practically have to take the engine apart to get at things these days.

Damn it, mom got the stomach flu.

The garage got the price down to $400 from $1000.  But now one of the tires flashed low.  With all the roofing going on there will be nails all over the place, probably picked up one.  Quit fucking with my car!  Anyway, got the coolant repair scheduled.  The oil leak I'll live with and I'll take care of the motor mounts in a few months.

Mom's better.  She doesn't blame me either and nobody else at the party got the flu so maybe my sister did pick it up somewhere else.  

I did get two doctor letters saying I passed my lung cancer screening.  The second one was kind of a weird letter.  It said I had a small nodule but that was VERY NORMAL, yes in caps.  Okay then why mention what's normal?  And why is a second doctor sending me a letter saying normal?  Glad you guys agree but was there some reason two doctors got called in on it?  Is it capitalized because doctor number two is yelling at doctor number one that he's an idiot for not knowing that?  hihi  Anyway, passed all my annual exams and I'm fine.  U'll probably drop dead tomorrow.   hihi

I get free money, the universe conspires to take it back and then some.  All the weird car problems and now my two year old AC is not cooling.  Got $10,000 for the hail damage.  It's a long way to go but I'm on my way.   nervous

Small leak in the elbow joint.  Craig filled the AC up and will someday come back and replace the elbow.  I had the best sleep last night though.  The house windows were open and ceiling fans on brought in that night air.  Just the right kind for sleeping.  The birds woke me up at 5 but it was easy to roll over and go back to sleep.  I think I'll try that on those nights when I just can't fall asleep, go outside and breath in that night air.

It all happens at once.  This whole week was pretty much open but now it's packed.  A bunch of little shit but where I thought I was open, those little things I was looking forward to, are being rushed, complicated or cancelled.  I pulled the trigger on the car repairs.  They couldn't finish it today so no pinball for me tonight.  I can probably catch a ride to the garden tomorrow but I won't be able to pick up the other plants I wanted to get in.  And I have to watch the grandbaby for a few hours so I probably won't be able to run by the nursery down there on my way to a visitation and then dinner with mom.  That's if I get my car back by early afternoon.

Thursday was my morning to sleep in but now the shingles are coming.  They don't get installed until next Tuesday, yea to that though!

Friday, I volunteered to help at another garden but an hour later, the SIL needs me right before that so he can run and get a pain shot.

I guess it's okay.  Nobody is checking to see if I'm exactly on time.  Maybe if I stop fulfilling my obligations and commitments, I will stop making so many of them.   hihi

$685 and I have to deal with a small oil leak as opposed to over $5,000 at the car dealer.

Somedays it all just clicks right on times.  I was on point all day getting a shitload accomplished, driving all over town once I got the car back.  Not to say I wasn't a little jumpy hitting my time frames but it all worked out.

Woohoo!  Packs of shingles all across the roof line.  One guy came by and put all the supplies on the driveway and a truck came by with a hoist and put it all on the roof.  Beats those days of hauling it all up the ladder.  Little more interesting to watch then watching paint dry.  hihi

Still following up on the siding.

It will all come together.  In the meantime, we have a holiday weekend ahead of us.

New Mad Max movie.  It got poor reviews but something to look forward to as a TV movie.   Cheesy

We have another tornado watch.  Should be the last one for a while.  Southern Illinois will get the worst of it.  Been a wild spring.

Memorial Day, thanks for your service, never forgotten.

My mother gave me one of those reusable totes with veteran stuff on it for my SIL.  She's turning him into a glorified bag lady!   hihi
