May 30, 2012

The end of the month is almost here and nothing has changed much at all.  Tom is still laid off and it doesn't look good for him to be called back any time soon, if at all.  He will have to go job hunting beginning in June.  I don't envy him!  At his age it is hard enough to get up and go to work every day when you do have a job and it's even harder to get up in the morning knowing you have to go job hunting.  There aren't really any jobs out there for him.  At least not ones that will pay what he needs to make just to keep us afloat!  I'm glad I'm retired!  Although if I could still work I know the money that I would bring in would be a small amount it would still help some!

Memorial Day came and went.  We went to the cemetery earlier last week and did Dave's grave.  Rita has this year to do Mom and Dad's and Grandma and Grandpa's and Aunt Minnie and Uncle Walter's graves this year.  She has the even years and we have the odd ones.  She said she did it that way because we are odd and that's the way she would be able to remember!  She's so silly!

We also planted flowers in our yard.  Well, not exactly in our yard..........more like in pots and placed them around the house and deck, porch and patio where we can enjoy them when we sit outside.  Even some near the kitchen window over the sink so I have something to look at besides weeks when I'm doing dishes!  I do love the bright colors.  Seems to put me a better mood.
