Happy Thursday to everyone. I'm sweating and am sitting between a floor fan and a ceiling fan. It's not hot, it's just darned humid! Hate this, AND they are predicting MORE humidity as the day and weekend goes on. Ugh!

ComicCon is in full swing here. Such fun. People all over in weird 'superhero' costumes. It's the main news on every station. Thank goodness it's something fun for once.

My Yard Kid, who is less and less reliable (the one I've had since he was 17 and he is now 21,where do the years go?), is supposed to come today. He's skipping out on everyone with lots of excuses, most of which I know are lies. Just wish he would either stop making up reasons why he didn't show, OR tell the truth for once.

His latest reason for not appearing for the last 6 weeks is he got a job at IKEA. Neat. He even had a badge around his neck with his picture. Looked real enough, but his 'story' about his work and hours and all that didn't jibe. So then I remembered he had a friend who worked there and I'm pretty sure that somehow this friend faked a badge for my yard kiddo. Gotta be. Nothing fits in the story about constantly changing days off, not really working for IKEA but for some other place next door, then QUITTING that job 2 days ago, showing up at my door to tell me he would do my yard today, BUT also telling me that he was going for training at IKEA before he comes here. If he's working for IKEA, for the past month and a half, why is he now saying he's going for training? Just not matching up with normal thinking.

Hopefully he really will show up today. This is the 3rd week in a row I have sat around waiting for the day he promised to come. I'm thinking that he's avoiding me since I loaned him 10 bucks for bus/trolley fare and he knows he will be working for only a tiny bit more money when he comes since he has to either pay me back OR work off the loan. No more loans, no more 'loaning' gas, trimmer string, equipment, etc. He never 'repays' anything. Cold hard cash loan though (my first since he looked sooooo pitiful) will be my last of any loans.

Hoping beyond all hope he really has that IKEA job and sticks to the routine. Not optimistic though given past behavior. His life is one big downhill slide despite all of us around here trying to help him 'grow up' and be responsible. Not working. We are all sad.

Off to find more fans.

Still waiting for water sad Plumber assures me he will get here.

Funny how I can't seem to do anything else even things I wouldn't need water for. lol

Sorta, I think I'd stop waiting for your young guy....Sounds like he is on a bad path. wave

Well we had a nice day out there in the 70's with a nice lake breeze. Not sure what happened but this afternoon when I took Sassy out I could not believe it.....it was so hot I thought I had stepped into an oven. The wind had switched to the west and it was over 92 out there with a heat index of 101. eek

Lotus prayers for your mum and HUGS for you!!!

Ana hope the computer straightens itself out for you!! My NIL came over last night and WiFi'ed all my toys. lol How cool!!!

L4l I hope and pray that by now you have some form of water. HUGS!!

Sorta I guess you'll just have to accept "hit and miss" from that lawn boy! Such a shame.

Karen great to see you posting again!! Missed ya! Hope all is well with you and MoJo!!

Space have a lovely evening and only one more to go!!!

Night Haroula sleep well!!

Well Sassy looks all pretty now cause I gave her a nice bath!!!

wave

Nan, holy moly, that is a heat wave for you guys. Do you have AC?

Turns out hubby knew about the washer...he turned the water off to it last night. rotfl

Groceries are put away and dinner is dined, dogs are fed, and I'm going to lie down. Waiting around all day doing nothing is exhausting!

Sweet dreams all sleep

Oh dear, the laundry room floor is flooded again sad

Howdy boomies! I thought I was free until next week but I went back into the corner instead. I did get the dogs out for their swim and I ran a few hills and I went for an hour bike ride after dinner.

L4L, still no plumber? I am so sorry.

Nan, that is hot for you! We got to 97 by me today. I almost jumped in the river with the dogs. lol

be back...

Thanks L4L, Nan and Ana, I think we know what is going on...my Mum is suffering some not mentionable side effects to antibiotics which she is taking for tooth. The dentist we saw last month gave us no opt but around $3,00.00+ worth of work. I told him he would be robbing her savings and he asked me if I wanted to be responsible for her diminished quality of life. It really upset me and freaked me out. I asked around about him and he has a bad rep...no kidding. So, when the tooth began to hurt again, one of my most trusted ally's in life told me about a new dentist in town and he is a saint. Didn't even charge us for the first visit. Hopefully she can tolerate the antibiotics long enough to get it extracted next Wed. I get too worried about her which doesn't change a thing but..... So thanks for caring my friends. Nan, that is some horrible hot weather after all of your non Spring. Awww Ana, just when you think you have some freedom...it's because you are just so good at what you do!! L4L, I got new Frigidaire Affinity washer and dryer in February and I love them very much. I even think of things to wash that don't really need it...well, maybe not really, haha. They are made in the US and are Energy Star too. At least the washer is. Just in case yours is permanently done.
Feeling just a bit more relaxed tonight so going to hang with hubby. Have a great evening everyone!!! wave
