*Honk Honk*…. Meanwhile back at the……

LOL, In my mind I know it’s July but for some reason I keep finding myself typing in June for the month instead of July.  I guess part of my mind doesn’t want to accept that it is July – though why I couldn’t tell you.

On to this week’s Three Things Thursday…. This gets kind of hard –  There’s four of us, if you count Miss Meekah Kitty,  and I don’t think I can come up with 3 smiles or “good news” per person..

Meekah was probably happy to be inside when the fireworks started up.  This photo isn’t one from Tuesday but is best one I could find that came close to showing how she was sitting (on the floor) when the fireworks did start. 

Course she wasn’t as relaxed as she is in this photo.  Her feet weren’t curled sideways under her but more straight under her and her ears were slightly back.  Thankfully the fireworks in neighborhood weren’t all that bad this year.

I’m sure she’s happy to have a full food bowl and water bowl.

An right now she looks very content in her favorite chair.

The Son is off at gramma’s, so can’t really ask him what he has to say. He does do belt testing in Martial Arts next week.  Don’t know how happy or excited he is (he’s not the kind of kid to get super excited about things).  He’s really come a long way in the performance of his Kata – Keshodone and his Kehones (drills), both of which he will need to do during the testing…  That and his defense move.

He’s also getting close to being able to take his final exam for algebra.  Looks like there’s one more unit quiz to take then the review for the final.

The plan is to the final for algebra (which is the last class he has to complete  from 9th grade) before he heads off to see grandpa.  This will be the first time he’ll be traveling alone but not as an “unaccompanied minor” – which means he’ll be responsible for himself and his stuff.  The good thing is that the flight is a straight flight – no stopovers, no changing of planes or anything like that.  The only minor concern is whether or not we will be able to go to the gate with him or whether or not grandpa will be able to meet him at the gate… As a parent there is always that concern when you send your kids off to do something for the first time, but I’m sure he’ll be/do fine.  After all. I had the same concerns about how he’d do when we sent him off to be a junior counselor for a month last summer. The report I got back (talking to several people who had worked with him) was that he did great.  I’m sure everything will work out just fine and that he’ll do great.

The Hubby — Oyyy, he’s even harder.  Just asked him if there was anything he could think for me to put down.  His answer – “Nahhh”. I can’t really come up with anything either….  Soit looks like there will be three people in which I come up with smiles/”goodnews” stuff.

As for me, well there’s the orders that I got shipped off yesterday.

I’m also expecting a small order from Pampered Chef – just a large scoop (for doing my muffins) and a pastry cutter/blender to replace the old piece of broken junk we currently have.  Should have it by the end of the week.

And lastly, there is fact that us and our family & friends are all safe.  Didn’t really expect any less but you know how crazy the Fourth of July can get.  Seems that people see it as a time to be crazy and a bit (sometimes more than a bit) stupid and careless.  I hope the same is true for all of you and yours.

See you next Thursday…  Till then, wishing you a blessed, good, and safe weekend and into next week.


This week I’m combining both my WeeklySmile post and my #ThreeThingsThursday post into a single one.

I just turned on the KIIM-FM app on my phone so I could listen to 99.5 (my favorite radio station) while I type…  That and a nice warm cup of coffee is making a me a happy camper right now….  It’s almost time for my favorite DJs to come on Max, Shannon, and Porkchop.

It’s been a pretty typical week for us around here – tutoring, martial arts, scouts, along with usual shopping, errands, and doctor appointments.  I know those aren’t exactly smiles or nothing, but good thing is we’ve made it through everything with little to no problems. 

Monday was back to back doctor appointments for me and The Hubby.   He had a cardiology appointments and I had a “women’s” appointment across the parking lot from where hubby’s appt was.  “Women’s” appt…. yeah that un-fun appt – for guys, I guess an equivalent un-fun would be the prostate exam.  Nothing, I understand, like having doc put on a glove and say drop your pants and bend over.  Anyway, the good thing is that, for me, that appointment is over and done with until next year.

Don’t know exactly what happened at hubby’s cardiology appointment other than them wanting him to have a blood test done to check lipids level.    Speaking of blood tests, I had one done yesterday – should hear something back in a few days regarding that blood draw, as well as hearing back regarding my earlier appointment.  I’m sure all will be good and something to smile about.

Just to recap on my Three Things – 

  1. Coffee and KIIM-FM
  2. Survived the week (well so far, it’s only Thursday)
  3. Got through un-fun “women’s” appointment – good for another year.

Hope you all had a week worth smiling about.
