Big Breakfast, money and peace and quiet~   Leave a comment

We had a big breakfast with bacon, eggs, cheesy hash browns and a lot of effort on Emily, Crystal, Tonyia and my parts.

As we did the cooking.

Then Emily, Matt, Keira and I went to Walmart where I spent a hundred dollars and I can’t even tell you why it was so much.

Well I got two pounds of bacon which was over $6 each.

I bought Keira and Mirielle a Packers mug that was over $12 each.

And I bought two t shirts for myself that were under $5 each.

But where the rest went to?
I haven’t a clue.

Amazing to me how much things cost.

Then the grandkids, Rick, Matt, Brian, Adam and Crystal took the kids fishing.

So it is nice and quiet here.

Which is a switch.

When you get five grandkids running around and two TV’s going it can get pretty loud.

But it is relaxing.

Heading Out~   Leave a comment

Here in a few hours we will head to Wisconsin to enjoy our five day vacation.

I will take a lot of pictures and post some when I have the time.


In 8 days I will begin my new job and I have to say I am ready for it.
This sitting around basically not doing anything gets rather tedious.

I need more to fill my day OR more money to fill my day.


If money were no object I would never be bored because I could have things the way I want them.

(A privacy fence and a pool in my back yard)

Hell I would probably move to the country if money were no object.

Plus I would get my sister and her family moved back to Iowa


Good thing dreaming is free.


Good morning two

Countdown To Vacation~   Leave a comment

24 hours from now we will be on vacation and at our cabin.

I sure hope everyone has a good time and enjoys each other’s company instead of arguing and being miserable.

The weather is supposed to be cooler up there so God willing it will be.

I hate the thought of dealing with more hot and humid weather.

My son was here and giving me a hard time for everything I was taking.

But since he hasn’t ever been on a week long vacation and wanted to make sure everyone has everything they need, he doesn’t get it.

Not one of them would think of taking extra toilet paper.

Because Lord knows we have to have more toilet paper when over half of the people are female.

No one would think of that.

Probably no one would think of things to entertain the kids either.

I have quite a bit of stuffΒ  for them to do.

So what if I am taking 5 tubs of stuff and three coolers full of food?

At least I am prepared.

Annoying~   2 comments

I am hardly ever on Face Book any more.

I find it pointless.

But when I do get on I find it very annoying that people have to take selfies and post them on face book.

Why does it annoy me?
I am not one hundred percent sure but it is like people are sayin “Look at me, don’t I look good?”
Which I detest people who like to bring attention to themselves.

People who have to post pictures just to be validated that they look good or have someone say “You look beautiful”

It irks me.

Why do people need that validation?
I don’t get it.

And I know it is every one’s right to post whatever they want on face book, it is just one more reason why I never get on it.

Fall~   Leave a comment


I am looking forward to Fall……..

Looking forward to cooler weather.

Too much heat and humidity.

So Fall looks pretty dang appealing.

Also I love the holidays.

And God willing Kathy will be moved back to Iowa by then.

In Hopes~   Leave a comment

My sister told me yesterday that she and her son, daughter-in-law and grandson will be moving back to Iowa soon.

Hopefully before the end of the year.

I hope it can happen.

She needs to be in Iowa.

That is where we are all living so she needs to be closer.

Life is too short to not be closer to family.


I hope they can make it all happen.

And soon.
