So three things that happened last week
Don’t know what all had The Hubby smiling last week but he was chuckling, several times, over a book he was reading. My guess he was also smiling (on the inside anyway) about getting the ingrown toenail taken care of.
The Son, well he rarely smiles so it’s hard to come up with stuff for him. He did have his annual eye exam and had his eyes dilted – pretty sure he was happy when that part was over. He has also decided that he wants to try and earn his eagle (which has me smiling).
Previously, he hasn’t shown signs of wanting to do his Eagle and we haven’t pushed it. Right now he’s in the process of earning his Life rank and is making good progress. If he can finish up a few merit badges that he started earlier and get elected into an “office” he could (feasibly get his Life at the next Court of Honor (in the fall), if not then next Spring Which would give him around a year and a half to two years to earn his eagle (before he turns 18). It looks as if he may be able to earn some Eagle Palms as well.
Sorry, looks like mine ended up o the lengthy side😅😋.
Totally blew off doing our Three Things Thursday post for the week yesterday… At least it’s only Friday and I didn’t totally blow it off — phewww 😅.
So, what three things can I mention this week? Hard to come up with stuff sometimes without repeating the same things that I’ve already mentioned numerous times, either here or in other posts.
The Hubby went to the doctor yesterday to have minor surgery done on his toe nail — Yeah I know… “What?!? Why would someone need surgery on a nail”… He had a problem with an ingrown toe nail that was causing him problems. He is both paraplegic – semi-ambulatory (less so though after the stroke) and diabetic. Both of which are not good when it comes to having an in-grown problematic nail. He said that the waiting around took longer than the actual procedure.
The Son continues to do well, and improving nicely, in his Martial Arts. Coordination is probalby one of the harest parts for him. I grabbed this quick photo, the other day, of him sparring with 2 other gentleman. Obviously, being that he’s still pretty new at all this, they went easy on him.
As for me (The Wife)…. Well, I recently did some more ridealongs with both the local police department and the local sheriff’s department. Got another one scheduled for another nearby police department in a couple weeks.
As usual, I’m doing my Mary Kay business, as well as tweeting, posting, sharing, etc stuff for my Public Safety Tidbits (unfortunately I haven’t had much to write about there) and Taini Writes (time, and lack of muse, has been a factor here – sadly).
Wishing everyone a wonderful and blessed weekend.
Ohhh My Gosh — Friday already?!? How did I manage to skip a day in blogging and over look the Three Things Thursday challenge.
Sorry to say I haven’t been following the whole bombing in Manchester super closely but not for lack of caring and as Natalie says in her post (link above) it is hard to smile when things like that are happening.
Speaking of smiles and blogging, I am at a decision making point – There are two smile challenges that I do on this blog. Both the Three Things Thursday hosted by Natalie and the Weekly Smile hosted by Trent… Originally I was doing the weekly smile on my personal blog Jottings and Writings but then I moved it over here as I felt I needed a way to have more content. Now I’m wondering if I should move it back or if I should move this one over there…. Uggghhhh Decisions, Decisions.
That being said, 3 things for this week:
1) Cataract surgery for the Husband’s second eye has been approved and has been scheduled for July.
2). I am going in for my first volunteer gig this next week…. And have a ridealong scheduled the same day – Going to be a busy day that one, LOL, but I’m looking forward.
3). The Son is plugging a way with his Math and is almost done with English. We got him signed up for summer school at a new school that we’re looking at for next near. It’s online based but at a physical school so there is the benifit of having teachers to help. We actually looked at this school last year but were pushed into a different school because, well, Family 😕😒😑. It’s looking like this new school may very well be a good fit for the son to continue his High School education…. That’s what the summer school is about – to see how he does and what he (and we) thinks.
Wishing everyone a Wonderful, Blessed, and Happy weekend.
