I hope that everyone had a great 4th of July.

As I may have mentioned, my mother still works at the store 2 days each week. The new owners pay her, of course. Thursday night, my mother called me to warn me that the other girl had quit and that there was a possibility that we would be working all weekend at the store. We were going to help the other girl some during the day, but had not planned on working all weekend. I was miserable all day on Friday because I was dreading working all weekend. I was so relieved to find out that the other girl called, apologized, and asked for her job back. We only had to work for a few hours on Friday night and a few hours on Saturday night. Since it was real busy, the time went by quickly.

Saturday, we relaxed all day before going to work at the store. My sister and her family returned from the beach early Saturday afternoon. My mother had been baby sitting their Yorkie. He is like taking care of a baby. Every step that my mother makes, he is right under her feet. When she sits down, he jumps up in her lap. Occasionally, he will get down in the floor and play with his toys, but he would rather get in your lap and play with them.

Sunday, we had to keep the nursery at church. It was not too bad. After lunch, I could barely hold my eyes open, so I took a nap. I rarely take naps. Later in the afternoon, we went to the cemetery and drove through. We saw a fresh grave and stopped to check it out. It was my sister's next door neighbor. None of us knew that she had passed away. She was 90 years old and lived with her 60 year old leftover hippie son. My sister and brother-in-law always take them food whenever they cook for a crowd. Sunday evening, we went over to my sister and brother-in-laws to eat hamburgers and hot dogs. Then we came home and watched To Catch a Thief.

I am taking today and tomorrow off from work. I am taking a floating holiday and a vacation day. Tomorrow, I am driving my mother and three of her friends to Ft. Oglethorpe, GA to go shopping. They like to shop at a store called Hamrick's. I have never been there. The clothes that my mother buys there reminds me of what they used to sell at The Tog Shop. I hope that I can find some capris, shorts, skirts and maybe a couple of dresses. From what I understand, they have really good prices. A lot of their things has elastic waistbands. If I don't stop eating ice cream and cookies, I am going to need the elastic waistbands.

I hope everyone enjoys the remainder of their day.
