Things~   Leave a comment

My two grandchildren are here.

Aaron who is 8 and Bailey who is 4

Ava stays home with mom and dad.

They like staying here because we don’t make a lot of rules and we do what they want to do

I bought them each a cheap toy at dollar general.
Bailey two barbies for $5 and Aaron a little hot wheels track that Bailey seems to enjoy more than Aaron does.

My husband made two bowls of popcorn and Bailey refused to share hers until she got all she wanted.
Aaron didn’t care for any.

Rick is eating one bag and I have been nibbling on what Bailey hasn’t eaten.

Sometimes popcorn gives me a really bad stomachache and other times it doesn’t bother me at all.


I did eat some spinach dip earlier that had never been open but was dated for August 2018

I opened it and had some and threw the rest away.
God willing I won’t get sick from it.


And since the seal hadn’t been broken I doubt I will get sick.

Time will tell though

One more day off and I am back to working two twelve hour days again.

Sure hope they go fast.

I did get a $1.50 raise though so that is nice.


me august 2018

Sure wish I was here again……

7 Years Ago~   Leave a comment

My sister Linda passed away seven years ago tomorrow.
Well in the middle of the night but it was in the wee hours of October 10th

It’s hard to believe it has been that long ago already.

She was 53 and estranged from our family.

Still she was my sister and I will always think of her and miss her

We weren’t close although she was four years older than I am.

But she wasn’t a friendly person and or want anything to do with our family.

Still I will remember her fondly and I do believe that I will see her in Heaven one day.

60   Leave a comment

So since we went to Wisconsin Dells for my husband’s 60th birthday my daughter said we have to plan on some place for mine.

At first I said a Florida beach because that is where I thought everyone would have the most fun.

I wanted to rent a house on the beach and hopefully have a private pool too.


But then my daughter Emily said that we should go where I want to go.

Well that is easy.


Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Montana, Alaska…..

But what can everyone afford?
And how long do they want to be gone for?
Can everyone afford airline tickets for four or five people in their families?

Then we have to worry about transportation when we get there.

Renting a place… for activities ……

It just seems endless.

I have to worry about money for my husband and I.

My son has three in his family, my other son has four in his family, my youngest daughter has five in her family and my eldest daughter has herself and her significant other…..

All costing money to go on any vacation.

And while we have two and a half years to save and plan for it……I just don’t know what to do or where to actually go.


Before I die I want to take a cruise ship to Hawaii and go around every island and then cruise back to California.

I also want to go to Alaska on a cruise and see Denali National Park.

I would love my children and their families to see the Grand Canyon or Utah or Estes Park in Colorado and Rocky Mountain National Park.
I want to see Glacier mountain national park in Montana.

I want to go to Oregon, Washington state again and maybe California….

I WOULD LOVE to drive up the east coast in the fall to Maine.


I want to see Niagara Falls

So it’s a mountain of thoughts to figure out the ideal place where we can all afford to go.



In many ways I want to say “Let’s go to Colorado because it is twelve hours away and we can all drive it”

But I’ve been to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park twice.

I don’t really need to go again…..

And I may go with my sister’s next year…..

It really shouldn’t be this complicated.

The “E” word~   Leave a comment

I hate being fat and over weight.

But I also hate exercising.

I know I need to and I know it is good for me but I hate doing it.

Well that isn’t entirely true.

If I could get past the first four weeks, I wouldn’t mind doing it because in the past it has taken me that long to get into the groove and find myself actually looking forward to exercising…..

Every night I tell myself “Tomorrow you are going to start exercising”
And every day I allow myself to be fat and lazy……

I am sixty pounds heavier than I should be.

I am obese.

And I hate it.


two thirteen

and yes I miss the beach but in all honesty I just feel like I would love to vacation somewhere……

I love this time of year~   Leave a comment

beautiful fall

I love the cooler temperatures and wearing sweaters.

I love the colors of fall.

I love it all.

I don’t even mind that winter is coming.

I love the holidays and the family time…..

It’s just a great time of year….

Political Bull Shit~   Leave a comment

People talk to me about this congressman or that or this person running for governor or people wanting to get into the congress.

I don’t care.

I really don’t.

I can not stand the man everyone calls President and if he can get in then in my opinion we live in a very fucked up country.

Everything out of Trumps mouth is a lie.

But people love him.

He can make fun of women, or physically challenged people or call people names which he does every single time someone says something against him and people love him.

I don’t understand it.

I detest the man.

So if people can vote that piece of shit into the highest office in this Country why would I care whoever else gets in?
Just more stupid lying people in my opinion.

My husband tends to rant on about this person or that but I tune him out and nod every now and then.


Until Trump is gone I have no desire to listen to anything to do with our government.

Every time he is on TV I either change the channel or leave the room

I can’t stand him

And the saddest thing is he will probably get re-elected.

So I have six more years of this crap.

This Life…..   Leave a comment

I got to sleep in today due to my daughter taking her older two to school and her two month old to the doctor at nine.

I slept till seven am.


But that was sleeping in as I am always up at or before six am.

Anyway I am on my own for about ninety more minutes before I get my two month old grand daughter.

She is supposed to get four shots today so I imagine that she will be very sore.

Bailey my four year old grand daughter will be here by eleven thirty.

I have been in a cleaning mood.

I cleaned out two closets and rearranged my den/bedroom yesterday.

Today I plan on cleaning ceiling fans and working on cleaning rearranging my crafts room downstairs.

It is a mess and I have been lazy.

I came home from work on Sunday evening to have all of my kids, their spouses and all six grandchildren here.

That makes 16 of us.

It was crowded.

And of course I didn’t think of it until after some left that I wanted to get a picture of my six grandchildren together.

I have yet to do that.

And Ava is already 2 months old!
I do hope to get one before Christmas so I can send/make Christmas cards of the picture.

Maybe I can get one in November when we have Kayla’s birthday party



Did I mention lately how much I love Fall?
