What Season Is This, Again....Anybody Know????

Posted by: cheryl

On the last post was a picture my son took while on his ride to work.  It showed the outside temperature to be -27 degrees.  Here it is exactly one week later and it is 75 degrees.  A 100 degree difference in only one week.  WOW, this is crazy.  Ritzywife is threatening to turn on the AC unit.  It seems we have jumped from the freezer to the oven.......hehe!!  All that beautiful snow is just about gone.  I had about forgotten what my yard looked like...  You want variety.....come to Oklahoma!!!!!
I am starting to get  "Crappie Fishing Fever".....  You fishermen out there know exactly what I am talking about.
I was reading on a weather site the other day about what to expect in the coming months.  They said to expect dramatic changes in the temperatures.  They won't last long, but it will turn cold, them warm etc....
With the daughter's wedding coming up in April, that is not exactly what I was wanting to hear.  I told Ritzy last night that I was going to wait until I know what the weather is going to be like before I buy my clothes for the wedding ;-)
Speaking of the daughter, she came into our room early this morning wanting a thermometer.  We found it and she proceeded to tell me she had been up half the night with fever/chills, back hurting , rapid heartbeat, and just not feeling well.  I took her blood pressure and it was normal, her heart rate was a little fast.   She was holding a cold wet cloth on her face and neck to try to "cool off"... She said that some of her co-workers had come to work sick, but she didn't know if she had "caught" anything off them.  I asked her again to show me again where the back pain was.  After that, I told her that it was possible to have either a kidney infection or kidney stones.  Told her a trip to the Dr.'s office was probably going to be needed.  That is where she and her fiance are right now.  He texted me a while ago and said they were waiting to take a ct scan, because the Dr. thinks it could be kidney stones.  It sure is hard watching your kids hurting and not be able to "just make it go away".....  I was going to take her, but he offered and I figured they are about to start a life together and they need to learn how to take care of each other.  So, here I am at home....She said she had a full day at work, but I told her that sometimes these things happen and her boss knows how hard a worker she is, so try not to worry about it.  Just an observation here--My and Ritzy's kid's  work ethic is one of their  qualities we are really proud of.  They both know their jobs and they do them well.  Sorry for the bragging ;-)
After the daughter and her fiance left, it was around 8:30 am.  I debated on whether to go back to bed, or just stay up.  Well the bed won. I didn't get up til 10.  Psst, don't tell Ritzy.   Oh well, I will probably tell on myself tonight.
This warm weather had me thinking about supper tonight.  When Ritzy gets home I am going to ask him to get the Weber charcoal grill out and fire it up.  I have some steaks thawing right now.  I am usually not a steak eater, but that sure sounds good now....Sure glad  Northeast Oklahoma is not included in that "burn ban"....
I have a feeling this is going to be one of those days where at the end of the day I am going to be scratchin' my head wondering where the time went.....
Ritzywife out.........................................
