Austin has a pitiful case of poison oak. It's spreading and he's miserable. Not miserable enough to take my suggestions of using calamine lotion liberally, taking benadryl to help with the itching and soaking in an oatmeal bath. He's terribly contrary so anything I suggest CAN'T be correct. And so he suffers...
It rained enough to turn the lake muddy over the past two days but the sun is bright today.

Mother Goose and Father Goose have been visiting frequently. I keep hoping so see some goslings soon. These geese are huge and they walk right up to the porch and don't startle easily.
I gave Austin another stab at driving the other day. He did better but ... man... it's not a job for someone with a bad back. I'm tempted to invite his father up for a weekend to have a crash course in driving. Pun not intended but appropriate.
The damp weather did a number on my arthritis. I had to have Austin help me out of the car yesterday. I just can't move like I need to sometimes.
My oldest is in Auburn Alabama right now. Or he was yesterday. He gets around quite a bit. I asked if his return trip was going to bring him through Georgia and he answered with "possibly"... which means "no but I don't want to tell you that right now". Ha. I speak the language of my kids quite fluently.

I was disappointed in the outcome of the NCAA tournament. Once Florida got booted I would have been happy for Kentucky to win as I have followed them for years. No such luck. Que sera.
I haven't seen my girls in almost two weeks. They had Spring Break last week and went to New Orleans to visit some friends and so my brother could attend class. He's working on his doctorate at the seminary there. But the girls will be here this afternoon and we can finish up High School Musical 3 and maybe start one of the other movies I've recorded for them. I've got the other High School Musicals, the Muppet Movie (from 2011) and Tangled lined up for us.
I'm sleeping fairly well lately - about six or seven hours a night. I'd like to sleep more but after that point I'm usually quite uncomfortable. I'm taking half an ambien to get to sleep... I'd love to not need any but that isn't working out so I'm just grateful I was able to reduce the amount.
