Tuesday Things

This was such an enjoyable day so far! I met my niece, Wendy, to talk about the silent auction The Babe and I are doing for Nebraska Concerns for Police Survivors (COPS). We talked about everything. Life, dating, people, Christianity, Catholocism, Faith, God, Baseball Tournaments, losing her husband Tom twelve years ago, and the Auction. I got so much energy from her, we had fun laughing and talking. I’ve loved my nieces since they were babies. I knew her when her uncle and I (dating couple) babysat for her. We have kept in touch for over thirty years. That’s a long time!

The Babe is mowing the yard (Raabe Ranch) before it rains some more. College World Series in town, it always rains. The CWS was on GMA this morning. It was great to see our city showcased for the Series. We’ve been home to them for over sixty years. The stadium is different, per the NCAA requests, and Omaha complied. It’s the first thing you see when you come from the Airport. It’s impressive. I’m proud of my hometown.

Trying to desensitize the pups to fireworks. They’re not panicking outside, but staying very close to us at the moment. Random firecrackers are going off – well – at random times. Hard to time them, so they do disturb our peacefulness here at Raabe Ranch.

IIt’s humorous. Direct TV sent a box to return our equipment in. Inside is a plea, “What Can We Do to Make You Stay?” Sounds like a desperate plea. We can’t trust them anymore. They didn’t live up to their last promise. Just like dating, almost. I just want their stuff out of here. And don’t bother me anymore. We’re done. (Cue: I Will Survive)

This afternoon? I’ll work on a nicely typed list of Silent Auction items. And Raffles. And of getting information out for our event. Dig in. Dig down. Do the Work. What do you need to Dig Into? Dig Down For? and Do the Work On?

It’sI need to straighten up our nest for sure. It will be a top priority during July. The calm before publishing my Kidlit Adventure Begins. It will be too hot to be outside much and a perfect times for getting life and stuff in order. The change one habit at a time method is working pretty well. I haven’t done squats every day, but I’ve done most days. It’s a start. That’s all we need. A start. And to keep going. Committing to Act, even to yourself, is huge.

Even though July is PTSD Awareness month, in August, I want to commit to doing 2200 squats (Up from 1500 this month) AND do 22 Wall Pushups a day. During that time, I will pray for the Veterans who are in danger of committing suicide. Please. Call a VFW. Call the VA Medical Center. Call a HOTLINE. Please think of your loved ones. If you don’t have family, think about your friends. Please. Let someone help you.
