this morning I got up...
thinking about what I wanted to get done today...
I knew I would have my Hotrod tomorrow...
so I had my day mapped out in my head...
my daughter would start working for me today...
I had projects for her to accomplish...
projects for me to accomplish...

 I put on my walking clothes...
took Nolan for a walk...
then I got a text message...
my DIL was feeling really bad...
had scheduled a Dr. appointment...
could Little Britches come today...
well you know I'm always ready to have him...
so my planned changed...
 
she has strep throat...not fun...
Hotrod is staying the night also...
we sure don't want him to get it...
so my plans changed a little more...
Isn't it funny how we think things are going to be one way...
but life takes us down a different road...
I've learned to roll with the flow...
it sure makes for easier days...
I still managed to get several of the projects done...
my daughter got projects done...
and we both got to spend time with Hotrod...
we had a little rain shower come through this afternoon...
Hotrod and I were about to clean out the pool for a little swim...
the rain drops started...
well Hotrod decided he wanted to run and play in the rain...
so guess what we did...
we ran around in the rain...
it didn't last long...we didn't even get very wet...
but it was a fun memory...
my hair was a mess...my glasses were splattered with drops...
we laughed...see a different path...
but just as fun....

Rolling with the flow, sounds good to me!

Plans are pretty much a thing of the past here since we retired. We like going with the flow and living in the moment. That is what makes retirement nice...no deadlines to meet and go and come when we want most of the time. Sorry about your DIL hope she is well very soon and no one else gets strep. Hugs

What fun to run in the rain with Hotrod. I love to be out in the warm rain and I don't even have a grandson to make it legitimate. :)

I always say, 'you do what you gotta do'..... and 'wanna do'...
Hope all is well on the home front!

That really is the best way - just roll with it. Glad it turned out so well.

Sounds like it turned out to be a perfect day. Sometimes the bumps in the road are the best!
