It's another Labor Day Weekend. I have a Birthday approaching, but I do not think we will do much this year. Two daughters are in hospitals. I don't want to celebrate without everyone being there. Maybe, I will celebrate in late September. Just hope the Hurricanes stay away. Our season is heating up. I might check out Searching at the theaters. I was hoping for Crazy Rich Asians for a third showing, but the person I want to bring is out for the weekend.

So, this week, they announced plans to go ahead with a sequel. There are 3 books in the series, so, this is not just a money grab. I am glad to see them reacting so quickly. This weekend, I actually went to see it a second time. It is that good! I brought my 16 year old. She wanted to see it. She did find it weird that dad took her to a Rom Com. I love most movies.

I got the opportunity to sleep in an ER. I know know what my wife has gone through all those times she did so. Sorry for not showing my appreciation. It is not fun and very uncomfortable. I slept in a recliner, after I tried to sleep on the floor. Show respect for all parents that have to spend time in the ER with loved ones. It is not an easy thing to do. Plus, I am clueless when it comes to the children's insurance.

I'm back. Hopefully, I will post more. This summer has been extremely busy. Now I have family issues on top of work. One daughter is in the hospital and has been for many weeks. Another is having coping issues. I guess it's great that they are not worried about the state our country is in. Some of my girls are more concerned with reputation and shows.

I took some of my daughters to see The Meg. It was a fun movie. It has humor and suspense. This is the last big film of the summer. Hollywood will start releasing the movies they thought would not be able to compete in the middle of Summer. Crazy Rich Asians would have been a sleeper. I hope people will still go see it.
Driving home the other day, I had an uneasy feeling in my stomach. The gardens I created and tried to nurture were being ripped from the ground. As I turned in, I saw the carnage. Bodies of cacti were everywhere. I can't even say they were ripped from the ground. Some looked as if they were hacked from the ground. They killed all of my pineapple plants. It was a devastating sight to see. Saturday, I got on my work clothes and I tried to rescue as much as I could. I thought I did a pretty good job. I did have an unfortunate run in with an ant nest. I did not know it until I felt something on my arm. I looked at it and I was covered in fire ants. I swatted, I tore off my gloves, and I ran inside. I took some allergy meds. The next day, I had a trail of fire blisters. They appear after a bite from a fire ant.
