my first time   Leave a comment

so today my sister-in-law and her husband took me to the riverside casino for my birthday.
We had breakfast and then played slot machines for about an hour.
It was an experience.
I can’t see myself ever being a big gambler and wanting to go back a lot but it was fun for the first time experience.

and I’m sure I will do it again sometime.

wow   Leave a comment

I wrote a tiny little comment yesterday on William and Catherine and it got more hits than anything else I have ever written.

I am shocked

If I came across as hating the thought of the two to of them than I apologize.
I don’t hate them.
I honestly am happy that they are married and I do hope they  have a great life together.

I just think there is more going on in the world then their wedding.

Maybe the fairytale has everyone captivated.
if so that is great I guess.
But I would rather hear about people striving to help those who lost so much in the south when the tornadoes hit.
or something incredibly wonderful like a rich person giving to the poor

But don’t get me wrong I am happy for William and Catherine.
(She needs to gain some weight though)

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge   Leave a comment

William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have finally gotten married

it is over, all that glory all that blitz and it is over.
Thank goodness.

I wish them nothing but goodness and happiness all the days of their lives.
may they be blessed with many children and grandchildren one day.
And may they always be happy in their roles.

But let’s move on please.

Let’s let the obsession of William and Kate (Catherine now since she is royalty) be over with and done.

It looked like a beautiful day for them and the world is happy they were married.
But please, let them have a life of peace and let the obsession end.

Really enough is enough.

undecided   Leave a comment

so while I am still thinking about heading West on Monday I am still undecided as well.
A huge part of me wants to go but the other part of me thinks, you just had a vacation you certainly don’t need another one.
So yes this is a want, not a need thing.
So right there that tells me I should just stay home and do work around the house and be happy I am not working.

but on the other hand I think it would do me a lot of good to just go some place by myself for a while and relax and enjoy the time.

decisions decisions.

what to do?
Still undecided

should I do it?

my husband just told that if I want to go to the Grand Canyon I can go.
by myself.
Either fly and rent a car or drive the whole thing myself.
Should I do it?

I think it would be great fun!!!
I’ve never done anything by myself, without thinking of anyone else but me.
It sounds thrilling and scary at the same time.
it seems a bit daunting to think of driving all those hundreds/ thousands of miles alone, but I have full belief in myself that I could do it.

So now the question is should I?

I will have to think about it some more.
If I do, I will leave on Monday, my birthday and plan on being back home by May 9th at the latest.

Hmm…..what do you think readers?

The Royal Wedding   Leave a comment

I am usually a positive person.
But I said to my husband the other night, “What is the world coming to when all anyone can talk about and focus on is the Royal Wedding?”
What would it take to knock them off every news channel?
Would it be a terrorist attack?
or another tsunami?

an earth quake?
A volcano erupting?

Don’t get me wrong, I am happy that Princess Diana’s son is finding love.
And hopefully it will last.

but really………I have had enough on William and Kate.

I hope they have a great life together and have a lot of children.
I mean them no disrespect at all.
But really………can’t we find something else to talk about?????

busy life   Leave a comment

so I have been faithfully checking people’s blogs for months now and it is sad to me how no one writes anymore.
My sister is the only one who puts forth the effort to write, and even she doesn’t always do it every day.

The man in Maine I use to read, hasn’t written for a month.
The woman in Australia has been longer than that.
My sister-in-law in Canada writes about every six weeks or so.
My brother, only writes about a story he is working on.

my other sister hasn’t written in over a year.
Quite discouraging.

So do they have busy lives?  Or are they just too lazy to write?

Mr Maine said he isn’t going to write for the sake of writing every day.
And he mentioned wanting to go abroad so maybe he did??

Hard to say.

Ms. Australia wrote me a while back and said she was quite busy with her new job.

so….while I try to write every day, and maybe not very well, I find it sad that no one else writes like they use to.
rather discouraging.

and the only person’s I check every day now is my sister’s who writes nearly every day.
Mr Maine and Ms Australia, I check about every ten days or so.
Maybe one day one of them will shock me and write.

Tom   Leave a comment

one of my favorite male actors is Tom Hanks
Not sure when this picture above was taken but I stumbled across it last week and thought ‘wow Tom you do look rather handsome in this photo”

so I decided to download it to my computer.

Tom has always been a favorite of mine, ever since “Sleepless in Seattle”

but I loved him in “Cast Away” and of course “Forrest Gump”

Leonardo DiCaprio will still and probably always will be my favorite male actor.
But Tom is second and probably always will be.
