Another Year Coming To A Close~   Leave a comment

Well here we sit on the last day of the year 2016.

Time to seriously think about those new year’s resolutions

First and foremost is losing weight and getting healthier

Yes I make that same resolution every year but I am diabetic and since my sister Cyndi died I have had a “who really gives a shit” attitude.

Now it is time to get tough and start taking care of me.

She has been gone three months now and while I know she didn’t always take the best care of herself (she was a diabetic also) I bet if she could talk to me she would tell me to start taking better care of myself.

So that is my top resolution.

To eat healthier and exercise every day.

Also I need to stop being critical of others.

I need to learn to live in the moment more and not let the TV influence me.

We plan on going to Florida in May over my birthday this year, but my husband is turning 60 this July so I have asked the kids to help me brainstorm and come up with something for his birthday.

I originally thought just a big party but my son Matt suggested we go to the Grand Canyon.

My eldest daughter Paula reminded him that it will be summer and probably not the best time to be in Arizona.

Then Matt suggested Niagara Falls.
Which I would LOVE to see.


I off handedly asked Rick if there was any place he would like to see and his remark was “nothing that I can think of”

So we shall have to see…..

Ideally it would be some place where the kids would enjoy it too as well as the adults.

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!

Family Time~   Leave a comment

I get to spend a few hours with Keira and Kayla today.

Usually they would spend the night with us tomorrow night as it is our weekend to have all four grandkids.

Unfortunately they are going to their other grandmother’s to stay there and spend time with their cousin whom they don’t get to see a lot of.

So it will be nice to have a few hours with them today.


I have laundry to do and a house to clean and I am in the mood for baking so I will probably make some bread later today.

I love my weekends!

Seems I spend a lot of time dreaming of warmer places.

I usually love winter but this year I am longing for the sun and beach.

Not sure why it doesn’t leave me.

Last work day of 2016~   Leave a comment

Well here we are on December 29th 2016.

Another year has gone.

I am on my last work day of the year.

I have the next 3 off and will be back to do a building check on January 2nd and then back to work for a full week on the 3rd.  (okay 4 days)

Every year as the year winds down I think of all that I have and all that I am grateful for and wonder if we will all be here a year from now?
Cyndi didn’t make it this year.

I wonder and hope and pray we will all be here next year at this time.

My sister will have a new grandson, which Thanks Be To God is a wonderful thing.

She has been waiting many years to be a grandmother.

My daughter is trying to get pregnant so maybe I will have a new grandchild next year at this time?
That would be wonderful too.

But if not the 5 grandchildren I have are quite wonderful.

I am a blessed woman and I know this.

I am forever grateful to God for all my blessings.

Pat myself on the back~   Leave a comment

Okay for all the energy I didn’t have this morning I got a lot done today.

Half of what is on tomorrow’s list as well as all that was on today’s.

It is a good feeling.

I am tired and my shoulders and back hurt from washing walls but it has been a productive day.

And my night custodian is going to do three of the four building checks this weekend so that makes me extremely happy.

To know I have three days away from this place is wonderful.

One more day to go and then I am off till Monday.

Wake Up Sunshine~   Leave a comment

I have no ambition to be here at work.

But there is so much to do that I definitely need to find some and fast.

I would rather be home.
