Movie Day Today

Hey, Y'all,
Today began early with bloodwork for tomorrow's doc's visit. I had the bloodwork done at 8 a.m., then on to get car filled with gas, then on to Wal-mart to get boxes, finally to have breakfast at Hardee's. Then home by 9:30 to begin more packing up of stuff here at home. Laurie came down and we packed up most of my clothing, along with my many dress hats and purses. Only a few dresses and jackets are left of my clothing to be packed up.

Then at 11:30, I left to drive to Knoxville where Mae, Imazo, Mae's daughter, Norma, and I went to the Cracker Barrel for dinner (lunch to some of you all). Then we went back to Imazo's and watched "No Time for Sergeants" and enjoyed it tremendously. Imazo brought out some watermelon then, and we sat around the table, eating melon and having a good time talking. By that time it was 5 P.M. and I had to get shaking and took Mae and Norma back to Mae's house. So, after hugs, we left and after dropping off Mae and Norma, I headed homeward.

While I was at Imazo's, I talked to Carol and she told me she had stopped by to check on Gramps, and discovered that what we had thought was a UTI that he had, was actually a MRSA infection, and is supposedly confined to the urinary tract. Not good news there. They are "watching it" and are taking precautions. I have a call in to Bishop Davies to talk to his nurse this evening. I just now talked to his nurse, Brooks, and he assured me that they are taking good care of Gramps and will call me if there is anything I need to be apprised of.

I am going to be packing a few more boxes tonight. I have two appointments tomorrow. One is with my eye doctor (regular appt.) and the other is with my family doctor (regular 3 month appt.). I will be doing more packing tomorrow afternoon. At night, I dream of packing - say, maybe if I dream of it, it will get done in my sleep. ha ha.

This evening I chatted with my good friend, Ina Ray, who is driving with me out to Texas. I am hoping we can get to see the house even though the lady who is occupying it right now won't be out until the 31st. She will be in the middle of packing, too. I am really looking forward to the trip. We are going to have such fun laughing and talking!

Well, it is after 9 p.m. and dark out side, so I am dragging my behind out of this chair and get it in gear right now! This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. Much love to each of you, my friends and family. Bye for now. More later.

Sounds like things are going well with your moving process. You will have a busy couple weeks getting everything together, but it will all pay off when you get down to Texas and are surrounded by family!

Hope the weather holds up for you! Seems as if it hasn't been as hot here in Knoxville the past couple days as it was last week!

If you need help with anything, you can feel free to call on me. I know we haven't met in person, but I have some help around here with the kids right now, with my husband taking the summer easy as far as his school work goes!

Mary Beth,
What a really sweet offer! I would love to meet you before I move away! Not for the help, but just to meet you. It is not often that I get to meet in person those who read my dribs and drabs of jottings. Send me your number by e-mail and I will call you. rubyndub@aol.com. Maybe we could meet for lunch one day. Best regards to you. Ruby
