last day of vacation, closing and puppy news   Leave a comment

Today is the last day of my vacation.
After having 12 days off and staying home, I am ready to go back to work.
I know there is a ton of stuff to do there and honestly I am a bit bored being home and not really doing much.

The closing on our house is finally going to happen on July 2nd.
My lawyer and the loan company has confirmed it.
Hooray!
Finally!

And my husband said I can get a dog.
So hopefully in the next week or so I can get a chocolate Labrador retriever that I am interested in.
he is a puppy born May 30th.

So hopefully I can get him soon.

my new puppy

I really would love to have them both, as they are brothers and use to being together, but I am quite certain my husband would say no to that.
Still I am thrilled to get a new dog.
I still miss Max so much and would love to have him back again.

But hopefully a new puppy will love our home as much as Max did.

Today is my grand daughter Keira’s 9th birthday.
Amazing that it has been nine years since she was born.
Where has the time gone?

We have her birthday party to go to here in an hour or so.

She is ornery and full of piss and vinegar at times.

But I think she is a beautiful child.
Of all my grandchildren I think she is the most beautiful
She is delicate and little, and shy and reserved.

Perfect complexion and hazel eyes.

I love her dearly
no not more than the other four, but she will always be a little extra special because I saw her come into the world and she is my first blood grandchild.

The other four grandchildren are beautiful too, but Keira is close to perfection.
At least in my eyes.
🙂

what to say today?   Leave a comment

I am at work on my lunch break.

I have been scrubbing walls in the third floor hallway.

ugh.

not my idea of fun, but I am almost to the halfway point and it needs to be done so needless to say I must get it done.

I am on vacation next week even though we aren’t going to Florida due to the house closing being postponed till the 29th.

God willing it will happen then.

So I need to get the third floor of this school done by Friday at two so I can leave knowing that vacation will be not worrying about work and what needs to be done.

My night custodian is going to be going on vacation from June 29th through July 23rd, so I will be working along for a while when I come back to work on July 1st.

no great plans for vacation other then working in my yard and maybe visiting my sisters

still debating on getting my hair cut.

I feel like I need to because it is so hot and that makes me miserable, and yet I know I will be sorry if I do.

so I haven’t cut it and probably won’t.

but who knows, I may get a mad dash to the solon and get it all whacked off if it makes me crazy enough………

I will miss my vacation to Florida, but……the house is more important……

All that jazz   Leave a comment

No reason for the above title other than it just popped into my head.

Have three of my five grandchildren

Keira stayed overnight with Mirielle so I have the younger three.

My husband is trying to get Bailey asleep without much luck and Kayla and Aaron are playing nicely.

I feel like I could nap myself and I haven’t yet been up three hours.

But I never sleep well when grandchildren are here overnight.

I have a week full of baseball games for all four older grandkids.
Unless it rains which it is supposed to everyday.

One more week and I’m on vacation, which I am not too keen being off of work with nothing to do.
If I take vacation I like to go somewhere so this might be hard on me and I may cancel some of it.
But maybe not.

I have a yard now so I could work in it some…..

I have a couple of sisters I could go visit as well

Guess I will play it by ear……..
