movie, grandchildren and cooler weather   Leave a comment

I hope to get to a movie today

it is rainy and very cool outside which makes for perfect movie weather.

the three grand daughters are still here

they have their moments when they get a long and then when they don’t

I get a bit annoyed when they can’t get along

they are ten, seven and four and it seems to me they should be able to get a long without the little fights now and then

the whole point of Mirielle being here is so she and Keira can play together.

but Mirielle wants to watch TV and Keira gets upset because Mirielle doesn’t want to do anything.


this is why Mirielle doesn’t stay very often.

because they can’t get along

I realize the age difference has something to do with it as well

but Mirielle wants to stay but then it all turns sour

grandchildren weekend   Leave a comment

Tonight I get Keira and Kayla.

I may see if Mirielle wants to stay too

as she and Keira like playing together some times.

I say some times because sometimes they really like each other and some times they can’t get a long for anything.


tomorrow night I have Aaron all night because Emily has to work

she is a Hospice nurses aide and tonight and tomorrow night she has to sit with a woman at the hospital all night long, staying awake to make sure the woman doesn’t choke

I thought “Really? she is in a hospital”

but Emily said the family don’t trust the hospital people to look in on her enough so therefore they will pay Emily to sit there.


so it will be a full weekend with grandchildren

not that I mind.
I love them dearly
And there will be a break in between the girls tomorrow morning and Aaron tomorrow night

Might even get a movie in

computer pics   Leave a comment

I got a new computer at work and had to erase all I had.
Yes I could have backed them up, but she came in and told me today she had to wipe it all out.
I was disappointed but I will get pics from my home computer and put them here so tomorrow I can download them to my work computer.

So here goes

oldies   Leave a comment

I’m listening to oldies here at work while I work
Songs like “Bad Bad Leroy Brown”

or “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree”

those were both popular in the early seventies.

my brother-in-law has these six cd’s of the Best Oldies of the early seventies that he loaned me to make copies of.
From 1972 to 1976

odd to me, how sometimes that seems like yesterday and other times it seems likeΒ  a very long time ago.

I love oldies.
It is my favorite music to listen to.

even old country songs, like Waylon or Conway or Loretta and Patsy

maybe this really shows my age, liking old music.

but it is what it is.
And I like walking down memory lane with them.

sinus headache and just no ambition today   Leave a comment

Ha, I know I never have any ambition.
Okay that isn’t quite true, some days I don’t mind being here at all.
Monday and yesterday were such days.
But today I would just like to be home.
I have a story I want to work on and get finished.
yes I do believe the writing bug has come back for a visit.
Hopefully for a very long visit.

The story I am working on is all but written.
I just need to tweak it here and there.

And do the epilogue

I’m excited and I can’t wait to get it done.
I have worked on this project on and off for threeΒ  years.

it is time to finish the thing.
But in all reality I have about fifty stories I have started and not finished.
Guess I need to get busy with those as well.

At least it is hump day


And I took some medicine so here is hoping my sinus headache goes away.

I wish I was sitting here writing on my story
