I will be going to Jeannie's early this afternoon where several of my family will be gathering. My brother and s-i-l from Wisconsin will be there and I'm anxious to see them. I often stayed over and visited them on my yearly cross-country trips, and I sure have missed them.
My youngest brother and his family, will be here from the Livermore CA area, as well and the parents of my late nephew. Both my sisters will be there along with a few other assorted relatives. Should be an interesting gathering, and would normally be a fun get-together, but I expect this to be a toned-down visit. As I'm not used to being in crowds I'm already beginning to get a little stressed
I don't have a clue what to wear, as it is supposed to get up to around 78 degrees today. I am usually cold and try to dress for comfort, but I'm at a loss as to how I will feel in a house full of people. Also, I live in jeans or sweats and t-shirts lately, and don't like dressing up any more.
I slept late this morning and as there is nothing I have to do today except to be ready a little after Noon, I am not really concerned. I guess I need more sleep lately.
Now that the weather is better the dogs are back in the dog park in larger numbers. I recognize some problem barkers, plus at least two new ones who do nothing but bark. I'm already sick of hearing them, and can only hope that new windows might keep out some of the yappy noises. I have never had a dog that barked incessantly and don't understand how their owners deal with it.
I wish everyone the best for today as well as the coming week. I just want Tuesday to get here and get that darn echocardiogram over and done with. I absolutely HATE the thought of having to plan the next few months and even the coming year based on health issues, doctor visits, etc. I want to be healthy again and get back to living!
