Well it is October. We are warned of frost tonight, so I need to go check over my tomato and pepper garden. It has rained quite a bit and been windy.

An update on what has been going on. My A1c came back at 5.6, technically non diabetic. This is a huge achievement. All other tests came back good too. I got a flu shot and a pneumonia shot. Two of my sons and my husband got their annual physicals and got on the list for shots for their clinic. My youngest got his immunizations for being 16. My middle son plans to stop over tomorrow for a visit and to pick up any fitness stuff we are not using. He is working from home as an online teacher now and is big on fitness so he is looking for more stuff to add to his routine.
My oldest son brought home his ESA the day after we put our loving Halo emoticon down. That son also got in an automobile accident the exact moment we were putting Halo down. My son was unhurt. His work van has been in the shop for almost 3 weeks now. He finally gets it back next week. He is getting tested for Covid for a 3rd time tomorrow. Work will not let him come in with any symptoms, not to mention a coworker had been in contact with positive covid people. I have been watching my grand puppy for my son. The pup had pneumonia so he was more comfortable with me nursing him back to health. The pup is better now.
My father in law had his stem cell transplant. Seems to be much better at times. He is losing too much weight though. Things are rough with my husband's siblings. We don't want drama so we hold our tongues. My family is not doing well. My folks are becoming an issue. Mom is purposefully hiding that she isn't taking some of her meds. My father is having serious memory issues. My brother lives by them but they are even hiding stuff from him. He reaches out to me for advice and guidance. I feel so helpless living 9 hours away and not being able to be there. Not to mention they wont allow me to visit. I am sad and frustrated and angry with all that.
We enrolled our youngest son in a charter school this year. BEST thing we ever did! Apparently our town is back in phase 1 for covid stuff and school was set to start face to face on Monday here. But since it is back to phase 1 and there is a boost in positive covid cases they need to re evaluate what they will do about school. I AM SO THANKFUL! we do not have to deal with that. Our son is able to stay home and work at his own pace. With the charter school, I look over what he needs to do for the week to be on pace, write it on a white board and he has to be sure to get it all done that week with appropriate grades. We did this for his own stability, structure and consistency. We got sick of the stop go stop go stuff with the school. This way he stays on track to graduate, is challenged more with new class choices, and has no distractions. He is doing much better and is loving the challenge of the classes he did not have access to before.
I plan to have chicken soup tonight. Just feels like a soup day.
So my son's ESA is a french bulldog pup named Yoda. I get the pleasure to be his doggy day care while his daddy works.

GranDad always said ...This too shall pass. A 100 years from now you wont remember what this was all about. Also told me that if one bridge is out there is always another way to get you where you need to go, find it. I cherish all of his words.
Missing GranDad. emoticon

THANK YOU TO ALL THAT SHOWED ME LOVE, SUPPORT, AND CONCERN. You mean the world to me. More than you will ever know. Thank you!
