I think I am more sick today then I have been all weekend.

I am sneezing and coughing and my throat feels raw and I just ache everywhere.


hate this crap especially on my days off.

yeah it would stink to be at work and not feel well but when I am home taking a vacation day I would like to feel decent….

second of a third day weekend   Leave a comment

I have a sore throat and it feels like a knife is stabbing my throat unless I keep drinking tea.

I don’t feel all that great either unless I keep the Tylenol in me.

I go from hot to cold to hot to cold.

Good thing I have tomorrow off.


Had Brian’s dinner and he and his family and Emily and hers are still here watching bowling on TV of all things.
Bailey is sleeping so I imagine they will all stick around till she wakes up.


Tomorrow is a bum day.

I may do laundry but I may not do a damn thing.


Got my perm and while I am not too crazy about it now, it is fine and will slowly loosen up.

my grandchildren all said “What’s wrong with your hair?”

love my family and sharing the weekends with them.

sister day today   Leave a comment

my three sisters and my niece are coming to my house for sister day today.

My other sister Kathy lives in Florida and just couldn’t hop on a plane and come visit too, although I wish she could have.


I am getting a perm from my niece Jackie and we will eat lunch and visit.

Hopefully everyone will enjoy themselves.

I am having Taco soup and small sandwiches and a vegetable tray.

Not sure every one will like the taco soup so that is why I am doing sandwiches as well.



it is going to be 60 degrees today  but they are talking six to eight inches of snow for us on Monday night into Tuesday.

all I can say about that is YUCK!
I was so hoping we were over winter…..

I could become a  lady of leisure.

And never work again.

I would enjoy that very much.

Especially now that spring and summer are right around the corner

If only……

Ben   Leave a comment


ten years ago today this handsome young man took his own life.

He was barely 16.

Every year I think of him on his birthday  on February 7th, and then on this day, the anniversary of his death.

He was wonderful boy who got lost in the life of depression.

I didn’t know him well but I did know him and would say hi to him when I saw him.

He was my daughter Emily’s friend.

I remember when he was a baby I thought “this boy is going to break girl’s hearts with those eyes of his”
He did break hearts, dozens of them…..but he did it by dying.

I know he is in Heaven with our Lord and I know I will see him one day.

In the meantime I am thinking of you always Ben…….

13 hour day   Leave a comment


I am here at work and I got here at 5 am.

I will be here at least until 6 pm so that I can have tomorrow off.

I know, how ridiculous!

but it is what it is and I want to have tomorrow off so I will work the thirteen hours today


I have sisters coming on Saturday and my son’s birthday dinner on Sunday so my weekend is incredibly busy.

I need some down time.

Tomorrow I will take my son back home after he brings his car to our town to get it tuned up.

Then I will go get groceries for Sunday’s dinner.

Friday I work a 13 hour day again to have Monday off.

IF I get it off.

my boss hasn’t approved it yet.

hopefully he will though.

On top of entertaining both days I have my four younger grandchildren Saturday night so needless to say…’s going to be a crazy weekend.

sprinkle me happy   Leave a comment


I have to say today is the first day in three weeks I have felt normal.

I have felt good.

I have been fighting this achy flu thing on and off for three weeks.


Today I feel lighter.

if that makes any sense at all.

I just feel good.

And that is something new and different in my world of late

count down to ……..   Leave a comment


just shy of 8 weeks and my husband and I will be flying to Florida again to spend a week on the beach.

God willing the weather will be fantastic.

I need a vacation.

I am so looking forward to it.


and then when we get back it will be five days till our youngest daughter will be getting married.

it will be here before we know it.

I’m thinking of getting my hair permed and styled for the wedding but am not one hundred percent sure if I will or not.

A change would be nice……

this day   Leave a comment


I went to bed last night at ten thirty and slept off and on till eight this morning

I say on and off because I got up to use the bathroom three times and woke at four, five and six am.



Went to get groceries and now after I answer my sister’s email I will start cleaning.


I use to be a first thing every Saturday morning type of cleaning person.

But I have become lazy and do it when it feels like it needs done.

no set schedule as my husband sweeps and vacuums off and on during the week.


It is a cool 50 degree’s outside.

Cool because yesterday’s wind was a balmy southern wind.
Today’s is more of a northern wind which makes for it to be on the cold side.
The sun is shining full force though which is awesome.


Not spring yet although the warmer weather does make me want to go work in the yard.

No point though as it is only February 20th.

Some of my blubs are sticking up in my flower bed though


way too soon for that.
