my grandchildren weekend   Leave a comment

I had Aaron Friday night and Keira and Kayla last night and today until noon.

We had a good time and the girls and I even walked over to Aaron’s house this morning so they could play together.

Here are a few pictures from our day

  This was right outside my front door right before we started walking

Lost boy   Leave a comment

So this morning we took our grand daughters Keira and Kayla to the middle school playground so they could play on the equipment there.
They had a little rock thing that the girls could climb up on and they thought they were big stuff once they got to the top

Once Kayla says to me  as she is sitting there  “Nana I am sad”
And I said “Why honey?” and she says to me “Because I never want to grow up”
I laughed and said “So you want to be a lost boy forever huh?”
And she said “Yes I want to be a lost boy forever”
She is so dang adorable.
Later she said “I am Peter Pan! And I can fly!”

Moneyball   Leave a comment

My husband and I went to see the new Brad Pitt movie “Moneyball”
I thought it was okay, nothing great.
But I am not a big sports fan.
My husband liked it better than I did, and thought Brad Pitt did a good job.
Which I suppose he did.
It was an oscar worthy performance like “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” but it was still decent.

on the inside of looking out   Leave a comment

I want to be almost anywhere but where I am at this moment.
I know I am lucky to have a job.
I do know that.
And the pay is good and I don’t work all that hard that I should be complaining.

but I do so hate this job.
hate the down time, hate the cleaning up after kids and just simply hate the whole entire thing.
I need to do something different.

And while I know I say this month after month, year after year, I know only I can change the circumstances.
Only me.

So I need to get off of my butt and get moving.
I am not getting any younger.
If I don’t change the situation it will never change.
I will be here a year from now, or ten  years from now still whining about hating my job.

So get up off your behind Marge and get moving!

Enough said!

not caring for all these changes   Leave a comment

my face book page has changed, but that is no surprise since we were told it was coming. Sounds like a lot more changes will be made to face book before it is all said and done. And I ask you, why change a working thing? To make it better I assume? I think we should get the choice if we want it better or not.
I liked it as it was.
Now as I am writing this blog, it too has changed. I get this tiny little screen to blog on. Doesn’t make sense to me. If it aint broke, why fix it?
But no one asks me.
Thrilled to death that it is Friday.
I so love my weekends.

Learning from daddy   Leave a comment

this picture brings tears to my eyes.
it shows how much Aaron is enchanted with his father.
I titled it “Learning from daddy”

I love it so much.
My little man is incredibly wonderful.

2 weeks ago today   Leave a comment

2 weeks ago today my sister and I were just beginning our trip to The Great Sand Dunes National Park.
It was a long drive
But I thought completely worth it.
   I can not believe it has only been two weeks.
Seems like two months ago now.
I loved vacation.
Love going west.
Hopefully Rick and I can go west next summer after he retires.

         so many beautiful places to see…..
Wouldn’t it be awesome to just travel and never have to worry about money?

arthritis, chemicals and the whole ball of wax   Leave a comment

I have been having shooting pains in my right hand, my entire thumb just aches, and I am quite certain it is old arthritis coming to play havoc on my old body once again.

I did realize what was causing me to have such severe headaches.
The chemicals I use to clean the bathrooms.
I went all day yesterday without having a headache and the very second I sprayed the chemical I use on the toilets, instantly the headache came pounding back.
So now I have a face mask I wear that covers my mouth and nose and hopefully that will help
I have goggles too which I may end up using if the headaches come back.

I come to work every day and I think to myself, can I really do this for fourteen more years?
ugh, the thought of it just depresses me.

my eye balls itch.
They have been itching the last few days and I can only assume it is the allergies.

the wind was quite strong yesterday, so….I’m guessing that is the underlying problem to the eyes itching as they do.

Tips to being a positive person   Leave a comment

Realize it’s possible, instead of telling yourself why you can’t do something

become aware of your self talk

squash negative thoughts like a bug

replace them with positive thoughts

love what you have already

be grateful for your life, your gifts and other people

focus on what you have, not what you don’t have

don’t compare yourself to others, but be inspired by them

accept criticism with grace, but ignore the naysayers

see bad things as a blessing in disguise

see failure as a stepping stone to success

surround yourself by those who are positive

complain less, smile more  Imagine that you are already the positive person that you want to become

focus on this habit and you will have a much easier time with any other.


a positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort  -Herm Albright
