Tuesday Tidbits

I've been absent lately.  Summer is coming to an end for Jakes and I wanted to get as much Jakes-time in as possible.  I've had him for the last 3 weekends in a row.  That makes for busy weekends and catching up on things during the week. 

Jakes starts school tomorrow!  So exciting!  The beginning of his 8th grade year!  He's not so very excited.

My parents came over for dinner on Sunday and it was very lovely.  They have missed Jakes and Jaxon.  Jaxon was so excited that they came to his new house to visit and play with him.  There was lots of butt wiggling from Jaxon when they arrived.

There is nothing better than fresh bread.  I have a bread maker now and LOVE it! We've had fresh homemade bread two nights in a row.  YUM!  Along with homemade lasagna and fresh salad, the perfect dinner!

Dad got the results of his ultrasound of his heart and its not good news.  There is an aneurysm and its over 5 cm. Its been there since 2008 and its grown since then.  Until Dad sees the heart dr, we don't know what is to be done about it.  There is a possibility that they will be able to put a stent in and fix everything.  That would be the easiest and safest.  His heart dr is on vacation this week so we won't know anything more until next week at the earliest.  sigh.

I also might learn to spell aneurysm! 

AZ went camping this weekend with JR.  It was a nice weekend with just me and Jakes.  And AZ enjoyed his time with JR.  The next camping trip will be just me and AZ.  No kids, no dog.

The boxes are getting unpacked and I'm working on decorating.  I love shopping!  As I get the rooms done, I'll share pictures.

August is transition month for Scentsy!  Most everything is 10% off.  Check out my website and stock up on items and scents that are being discontinued!   https://amylk103.scentsy.us/Scentsy/Home

That's all for now.  See ya tomorrow!


  1. Sounds like a mostly good week. I'm sorry about your dad. Keep positive thoughts till he sees the doctor!

  2. I'm glad you've had the chance to get a lot of time with Jakes before school kicks off. I'm not surprised he's not all that hip on it starting though. Typical boy!

    I hope everything will be solved easily for your dad!

  3. school...oh my....been there for a few days already myself...smiles...much better today....hope that goes well...and def glad you got time with him before it started...
