Getting Back into the Groove.......

Things are getting pretty much back to normal here. Thank the good Lord for that. I have been going back to the gym since Monday and I'm slowly cleaning the motor home. I washed all the linens and towels and put them back and emptied the fridge and cleaned it good. I wiped down all the counters with Clorox wipes and today I plan to thoroughly clean the bathroom and vacuum all the cat hairs up again. The big dashboard collects the hairs in all the nooks and crannies. Tomorrow my husband has an appointment to take it in for the generator to be looked at. I am praying it isn't too expensive a repair. We need it fixed regardless but money is tight now that vacation is over so I hope it's not too much.

Our county fair started on Tuesday and we usually go to the concerts they have but we've missed the first two. I guess we're just kind of burned out after the last two months of running here and running there. I would like to go tonight though and see Josh Turner. He is a country singer with a really deep voice and is oh so cute besides.

I don't know if I mentioned that my doctor relocated to Washington state so I am out of a doctor. The doctor who ran the clinic was going to take on all her patients and then at the last minute she gave up her practice and went to work for the VA Hospital here in town. This all transpired while I was gone on vacation. Her office sent out letters to all the patients involved along with the names of doctors who would be willing to take on the patients who no longer have a doctor. Well, by the time I got the word and started looking into it I am going to have a nurse practitioner not a doctor. The facility is one I have used for urgent care and it's very nice so I figure, whatever!! There are full fledged doctors there if there is a problem. And as if that isn't enough, my LapBand surgeon also left the practice where I had my surgery done. He moved to a city 30 miles to the north of it. Now he is 110 miles from where I live. I have the option of following him or going with whoever they get as his replacement. As far as I know they haven't found anyone as yet. They have another doctor who will come in one day a week as a substitute until the position is filled. I can't believe I have lost both doctors in the same week. I may just go with the new doctor and hopefully that doctor will have more experience dealing with LapBand issues such as the reflux I have been having. I am debating going in for another fill since I can practically eat anything now and usually do. I have gained about 4 pounds after the vacation and lack of exercise. I am back to eating better so I am hoping to drop the weight but I really need to lose another 40 pounds so I don't know. I am worried that I will have the same problem if I get an adjustment. Well, I think I have said a mouthful and it's time to get busy around here.

Home at last........

Tim McGraw (unfortunately I didn't get a good shot of him)

Joey and Rory

Phil Vassar (He put on a good show, great entertainer)

Tracy Lawrence

LeAnn Rimes

Well we came home a day early from the Jamboree. We were using our generator to run the air conditioner in the motor home so the animals would be comfortable. On Saturday we tried to run it and it made a terrible noise. Hubby checked the oil and that was fine. Soooooo we no longer had a/c. He decided to stay there with the pets all day and I went to the concerts. He finally came over to see LeAnn Rimes perform at 8:45. It was so hot last night and it was starting to get cloudy which made it humid on top of the heat so we decided we didn't want to face another day in the heat. So we came home. I hated to miss the remaining acts that performed today but I also didn't want to be sweating all day again and worrying about our pets. It is sure good to be home. And our friends have gone back to their new home. That means we get our motorhome parked in it's space and the boat back in it's space. So things will go back to normal after more than two months. Woohoo~!! Don't get me wrong, we really love our friends but being with friends too much isn't good either. I wasn't able to get too many good shots at the jamboree. Tim McGraw performed Friday night and our seats were pretty far from the stage so I didn't get any sharp shots. I got a few of the other celebs so I've included them here. Hope I can catch up on all the blogs I haven't been able to read over the last couple of months.
