Thanks Frikkamom,
Its good to know its not just me finding it hard to adjust.
My husband thinks housework just consists of mopping and vacuuming the floors.And I feel like I'm constantly sorting out meals.Its going to take some adjusting to but I'm trying.Thanks for your support.

My dad retired in 2000 and my mother retired in 2010.
She said it sometimes drove her crazy,
both of them being home all of the time.
My dad passed away this Labor Day weekend,
now it will be another adjustment that my mom will have to get used to.
Please, please enjoy the new found time with your spouse.
We're going to be lost without my dad.

I truly didn't mean for it to sound like I think this sounds
after I went back and read it and I apologize if I hurt any feelings.
I guess I may be a bit more sad today than I thought I was,
it's been a week ago today since the funeral,
so please forgive me if I hurt or offended anyone in any way.

lizzy, I think most men
are hard to adjust to having around 24/7 Smile Smile
But most of them turn out to be worth making the effort Smile Smile
Start y'all a 'Got On My Nerves' jug (big bottle)
and every time one gets on the others nerves
they have to put a dollar in the jug.
At the end of the month empty the jug
and have a night out enjoying each other.
I don't know if the jug will take longer to fill up after a while
or if y'all will enjoy the nights out each month so much
that you'll continue to fill the jug up (just for the heck of it) Smile Smile

Hi all you wonderful women. Smile I hope the silence on here means that all of you are doing well and feeling better. ConnieLea, I loved your idea about the jar ... only problem is that some days, the hubby and I would have to go to the ATM to get more cash to put in, LOL. Is anyone getting excited about the arrival of fall? I am SO ready for cooler temperatures, and as I posted on the MD board last week, I'm ready for turtlenecks, fleece socks in wild colors [I have a collection], changing leaves, Halloween, mums and winter annuals, new crop apples, etc. Take care all, and blessings to you and yours.

I totally understand about having to go after more money Smile Smile
As for the cooler weather, not I, as the little red hen said Smile Smile
I can never get (or stay) warm enough and all of my aches seem worse.

ConnieLea, I'm sorry the colder weather magnifies your aches ... that stinks. I know you live in GA, too, but I think you're north of me? Enough so that you get the colder temperatures than we do in the Atlanta area. Hope you and everyone else is having a great weekend. Take care. Very Happy

frikkamom, we live at the foot of Fort Mountain.
About 90 miles north of Atlanta. So we get pretty much the same weather.
Maybe a tad bit cooler because of the mountains Smile Smile
Do you know where Fort Mountain is?

ConnieLea,
I didn't know where Fort Mountain is, so I looked it up on a map and read about it online, too. Wow! What a beautiful place, and the archaeology about the stone walls is fascinating. I hope my husband and I can see the park and the mountain someday. GA is such an interesting state with so many different types of geography...mountains, piedmont, coast. Something for everyone. Smile

Yes, frikkamom, I'm a proud Georgian (is that right Smile Smile)
If you ever get to visit the (Fort Mountain) State Park give a shout here
to let us know. We're only about 4 miles from the foot of the mountain.
If the weather is good we can do a picnic and play mini golf.

ConnieLea, Thanks for your last post. See me smiling? Smile If I ever get some part of my health back, I'd like very much to take you up on a picnic and mini golf outing up in your neck of the woods. When I was reading about the archaeological artifacts at Fort Mountain, there were disagreements about who created the fort / wall and when. Have they figured that out yet? The internet is so great for learning, but everything stays forever so I couldn't tell what the newest theory is. Have the leaves started to change in Fort Mountain yet? WE finally have had a night in the 50s, but I don't see any leaf changes in our area yet. But our dogwood's berries have turned bright red, so that's a hint that fall is here. Smile Hi to everyone else, too! Any signs of fall where you are? Have a great evening, ConnieLea and everyone else, too. Smile

[i]I'm not sure of the last I read about the who or the why the wall was built Embarassed
I'm almost ashamed to say that because I should know.
We have had a couple of nights that got down into the 50s.
Right now most nights are in the middle to lower 60s (Cool but feels good)
There has been some color changes in the leaves on the mountain.
Not all of them yet, but you can tell it's happening from town if you look.
We have one tree between my moms' house and mine that always loses
it's leaves before any of the rest of the trees and I noticed yesterday
that it's almost bare now. I don't know what kind of tree it is.
All I can tell you is that it is a tall skinny tree that my Dad planted one year.
Most of the trees in our yards are Pin Oaks,
(Three of them in Moms front yard are approximately 52 years old this year)
with some other types of oaks thrown in...and a few sycamores and cedars.
They all seem to hold onto their leaves longer than some others do.
But the leaves on them will turn colors before long,
when they do they are really beautiful, with golds and oranges galore.
After I leave GDG tonight I'm going to have to look up
the facts on Fort Mountain again Embarassed Smile Wink ,
otherwise I'm going to feel like a dunce the rest of the week Smile Smile
The picnic and mini golf offer is open any time.
If it's summer time they have a swimming area roped off at the lake too.
They have trails, mini golf (I think it's still open), swings, slides, grills,
picnic tables and some tables underneath roofs for rainy days.
Spring, simmer and fall are all great times to visit the mountain.
Winter can be beautiful up there too, but it's too cold to do much.
Pick a time and come on up, we'll see what we can get into Smile Smile
Invitation extended to everyone else too......
The weekend is coming up...y'all have a great (and safe) one.

Good morning, ConnieLea, and to all our other Forum friends. Smile ConnieLea, thank you so much for the wonderful post and for the lovely invitation. I hope that someday I'll be well enough to take you up on it. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying the mental picture you gave me about how beautiful it is up where you live when the leaves turn color. Lucky you! Smile Re: not knowing all the history of the fort, isn't it funny how when we live somewhere, we tend to be the ones who haven't visited the local sites or who don't know all the detailed history? Growing up, we lived outside of Washington, DC, and the main reason we knew about many of the monuments and museums was because relatives would come to visit from out of town and they'd be the ones with the "To Visit" lists and information about different places. Left to our own devices, I'm not sure what my parents would have taken us kids to see, LOL. I hope you're having a great week and that it's still warm enough that you're not getting any aches and pains yet .... just pretty fall colors. Smile Blessings to you and everyone else, too!
