Quiet again~

The grandkids and their parents are all gone now. The house is quiet and put back together. My husband is listening to a program on IPTV about the Bee Gees. Good Lord that was popular some thirty five years ago or more. I enjoy listening to oldies so I don’t mind it. We are winding…

Grandchildren and the weekend~

It is our weekend to have the grand kids so the younger four will be here tonight. Actually two of the four are here already. My older two and their father. He put “Tombstone” on so we are watching that We will be going to the movie “Coco” later today. A children’s movie that is…

In The Deep Freeze~

It is cold. Freaking cold in Iowa this past week. Burr. I love winter but I hate this damn cold. Anything about 32 degrees works for me. This temp hovering around zero or lower is just too damn cold. I have to get groceries in the next day or two and I dread the thought…

My little peanut~

Here is a photo of my daughter’s future son or daughter. Okay not the actual photo but a picture on the internet of what he or she looks like at 9 weeks. Hopefully it will be a boy. Love the idea of having another grandchild. They are so wonderful and true gifts from God.  

New Year’s Resolutions~

A week from now we will be sitting on January 2nd. A new year. A new start. I MUST lose weight this year. I gave up pop about five weeks ago and I can tell in my stomach as I am not as bloated as I use to be. I need to exercise every day,…

Merry Christmas~

Today is the birth of our Lord. Today is a family celebration spending time with loved ones. My Christmas day has been rather dull. As they always are because our kids go to their spouses families. We went to a movie earlier which wasn’t that good, and I have rearranged my bedroom/den. And now I…

Downsizing~

My husband and I went to the movie “Downsizing” today. I have to say it wasn’t that good. I love Matt Damon but even the best of actors can have a dud. Still it was an interesting concept but very long and dull. I think Matt Damon is a very good actor but this movie…

A little bit of snow for Christmas Eve~

We got about an inch of snow. Not much and I would prefer another two to three inches but it is nice to see it white outside. It is Christmas time. There should be snow on the ground. ­čÖé We have a few hours of quiet time before the kids and their families get here….

Early gathering~

Had a get together at my eldest son’s house tonight. No reason other than my daughter Paula was home and won’t be here for Christmas so we all got together. It was a nice visit and super nice to have someone else play host. I work tomorrow 2-10 and then I am off again till…

I need~

I need to go to bed, pull the covers up over my head and hibernate until this cold is gone. Unfortunately that isn’t going to happen. I have to be at work in less than four hours again. I am not a big fan of the night shift. Even when I feel good. It just…
