Back Home In Oklahoma

Posted by: cheryl

Ritzy and I made it back home this past week.  It was a fun and enjoyable visit with his family.  We all met at his sister's house for a meal together.  I took pictures of our Northern family to show the new son-in-law.  On our way back home we were a couple of hours from our stop for the night when all of a sudden Ritzy and I heard a loud noise.  We could not see damage on the windshield from inside the at the next rest stop we looked over the windshield and in the black strip along the bottom... there it was.  A bad chip and the starting of tiny cracks.  I was NOT a happy camper!!!!!  Well, before we left the next morning, I found a place to "repair" the damage done by that rock that was thrown by  that 18-wheeler!!!   I was not going to give that thing any chance to grow..... and now..... if you didn't know the damage was there, you'd never be able to find  it.   They did a good job!!   I told Ritzy that for me it was in a good spot because it was invisible from the inside and for Ritzywife...... "outta sight is outta mind"......... hahahaha!!!
I hate those trucks!!!!!!  I have often thought they need their own highway system!!!!!  Although, they probably think the same about us ;-)
The weather here in Oklahoma has cooled off and I am wearing a jacket as I sit here in my home (too stubborn to turn on the heat).  Our  church Harvest Party is tomorrow night.  We will be having games, door prizes,  a pit fire, good food, and good fellowship.  I am kinda in charge, but I have recruited some help.  Some of us are staying after church tomorrow to set everything up.  We  decided to just have sandwiches and get to work.  Looking forward to a fun evening.

Took some pictures of what little decorating I did outside this year, here is one of the pictures:  yup, that's Ritzy in the background........and that's his John Deere tractor he had as a child.  Isn't that cool?!?
The kids that play here always go to that little tractor to play on it.  It has a wagon and that great-niece loves putting "stuff" in there and pedaling all around the yard.
The niece (great-niece's mama) is doing "ok" for now, but there are other personal problems she is dealing with.  We continue to be there for her and the kids and pray that God takes care of them.
You know when one family member hurts, you all hurt.  It's like.... when part of your body is hurting, the whole body feels it.
The daughter is FINALLY feeling ok. No hot flashes or anxiety attacks for the past couple of weeks.  Praise God!!!!  She is starting to feel like herself now, except for that little "pooch" making itself known. It's beautiful tho!!!!!  But......she is in the "cry/laugh" part of the pregnancy...or in other words the emotional highs and lows.  I warned her about it, tho........I told her to just let the tears flow.....that is our body's way of trying to take care of itself  and in the end ....if you overlook the stuffy nose and red eyes..... she will feel A LOT better!!!!!!
By the way, that hubby of hers wasn't understanding all of her mood swings or anything about being pregnant....why should he, he's a guy!!!  Well, while we were in Appleton, we went to a used book sale and as I was looking over the books I walked around a table and there standing on the table staring me in the face was a book entitled "HOW TO BE A PREGNANT FATHER"......can ya believe it?!?  I snatched that one right up.  He now has it in his possession, haha!!!  I hope he makes good use of it...
That is about all the thinking I can handle for now...Ritzywife out!!
