Just Like a Shot in the Eye

I did a little sewing and was back up to the house for breakfast at 6:30.  We left the house at 7:35 to go to Murfreesboro for Norman’s 9:15 appointment for his shot in the eye.  The trip went well and the shot went very smooth today so we were back to McMinnville by 10:30.  We stopped at Walmart and did out weekly shopping and home for dinner at 12:30.  Shopping day is always spaghetti day as I don’t have to spend a long time cooking dinner.  We did just a lot of small chores this afternoon and now Norman is asleep.  These trips to the doctor take a lot out of Norman so I’ll put him to bed early tonight.

I found a relative on Face Book.  I was looking at Celina’s page and saw a comment from, a Zak Swartz and thought he must be related as we have Swartz in our family too so I wrote to him.  He gave me the names of his family as far back as he knew, I took those and looked them up on ancestry.com and found we are related.  His ancestor and mine were brothers and come to this country with their father in about 1750.  I am now putting the Swartz family story on this blog.  If you are interested in the line, click “The Schwartz Family” at the top of this page.  I have a little of the story there now and will add more of it as I have the time so check it out each day and I’ll try to add more each day until I get it all done.  Must go now and put this poor old man to bed.  Have a great day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
