It’s been awhile..and I’m still standing

Where to start.. it’s been awhile and so many things have happen. Life is a challenge and I’m still standing. Where to start is the question…..

I have a new grandson.. he is almost 5 mos old. His name is Robert. God must have known that he was to be named Robert before we did. My daughter in law lost her father this past Friday and the baby was named after him. We will always have “Robert” with us now…


I’ve been thinking a lot lately… I have been so blessed to have the family that I have been given. We are not perfect and never will be.. but we are blessed to be given the time together that we have had. There will come a time when I will no longer be around.. but my family will go on.. and more will be added as the years go by.

It is said that people come and go in our lives and while this is true.. Family will always be there. Family will drive you nuts.. piss you off.. but will stand with you when they are truly needed…

So this is for my “Family” I love you , and will give thanks each day that I have you .. each and everyone of you in my life.

What’s up

Kinda hard keeping my word about blogging when there is so much happening.

Sis has been in the hospital. So between that and trying to work. I’ve been pretty busy…

But today… I got a new sofa … man is it nice. I just wish I had time to set on it. I’m trying to get things really cleaned up around here. Ya know the kind of clean where ya pull something out and think : Why am I keeping this ???? Well let me tell you the trash men are going to know I cleaned house. Which brings me back to Sis. We are the odd couple. I clean and toss. She hangs onto things thinking she will find some use for them. I took down and put away all the xmas stuff. She put the tree on the back patio. That was the extent of her helping. Today I went out on the back patio and guess what ?? The xmas tree is still setting there !What is she thinking, that we can use it next year ?

My point is this. there are many things about others that bother us. I have to stop and remind myself that  there are things about me that drive my sis nuts. So we call it even and adjust to what makes each other tick… it’s all about being who we are. I’m who I am suppose to be and so is she…..

Relax, tomorrow is another day

Astrology - Today's Taurus Horoscope

Here is your Today's Taurus Horoscope

Progress is tough today, so don't get too frustrated if you end up not far from where you started. If you can just blow off the day entirely, you might get a lot more out of just relaxing.

Now you may wonder why I posted my horoscope..

After reading how my day has gone you will understand. I now think I need to listen to what is being said.

Today is wet and cold. We, my sis and I decided to order pizza, you know the kind they bring to the house. How smart is that, we don’t have to go anywhere . I liked this idea….8458F00Z

I decided to order online, not a problem. There would be a 35 to 45 min wait. I can live with this, I won’t starve before then. The doorbell rings and “Yeah”, it’s time to eat. The girl handed me a ticket. I looked at it and it was the wrong price. They hadn’t charged me enough. I’m honest and tell her of the mistake. Turns out she had given me the wrong ticket. With this resolved . I close the door and head to the kitchen. I’m just a min away from heaven or so I thought. I open up the pizza box and took a bit ( I’m starving !) It was then that I realized this is not the pizza I ordered. Not real happy after waiting for 45 mins.

Did I mention that I also ordered cheese bread sticks ? I opened up the box and I had cinnamon bread  with marinara sauce to dip it in. #*%^$%# Get the pictures ?

Someone was fixing to get a ugly phone call. It’s just wrong to mess up a order that bad. I called, ask to speak to the manager. I’m not messing around here.

After explaining what had taken place with a perfectly good  order that had gotten all jacked up, I was asked if I wanted another order to replace the one I had gotten. Do I want to wait 45 more mins ? I think not ! In the end I was given a credit for another pizza and bread sticks. Did I eat the pizza? Well yes, but I just couldn’t talk myself into dipping cinnamon bread into the marinara sauce.

I think it’s time to blow it off and relax !


Did ya really think I was dead ?

I’m back ! I know you thought my feet were sticking up out of the dirt ! Well guess again. I got sidetracked with everything that has been going on.. At my age I get sidetracked  often.

Where to start.. I went to Key West on vacation. I had never been there and it is a lovely place… but unless you are younger and into bars and drinking there really is not a lot to do there. After  a week I was ready to head home. You get tired of shopping and drinking after awhile and so it was back to reality.

My son , grandbaby & his girlfriend moved out.. I now have a daughter in law and a new granddaughter, Yes, we had a wedding this fall. I can’t believe that baby will soon be a year old !


Christmas 2009            

         A good looking family

What else has been pushing my buttons around here ?  Well my oldest daughter was in a car accident . She rolled her SUV. It was totaled . She had her angles watching out for her. Thank god she was not seriously hurt. Not a great way to get you hands on a new car.

I worked Christmas so the family all got together on New Years day to start the year out right. We had a great time…  now with all the Christmas stuff stored for another year, I am getting things cleaned up around here and cleaning the carpets. So there ya have 6 mos history shorted a bit. I will do my best to keep things on track and check by more often.

My hope is that you are all doing well and that the new year will bring lots of laughs and happiness your way…   Simply_me

and today….

Well today was finish the floor day. That was not my plan. I wanted to go to the pool. As luck would have it we are in stage 3 of saving water. I headed to the pool and found out it is closed for the rest of the summer… We need some serious rain ! Could you all do a rain dance or something for us ?

My son and family did get moved out and my Sister has moved in. I finished the tile on the dinning room floor and will work on putting everything back into place tomorrow. I don’t think I will tackle another floor for awhile.

My newest addiction is “FaceBook” If you haven’t tried it you might want to. I got bored with twitter and some of the other things. The gang at work told me I needed to try Facebook. What the heck, I need another way to waste time right ? Well I love it. There are lots of things to do there, as well as chat with your friends. What I like is that only the people you add can contact you. No strange message’s from strange people.  I happen to love FarmTown.. You start from a plot of land and build a farm.


                                                 Holy Cow’s farm

That would be my farm.. “Holy Cow” – I have a farm and a green thumb at last ! It’s a lot of fun. So if ya find you are bored, give it a try.  www.facebook.com

I will post picture of the floor as soon as I put every thing back in place.. Hope you are all having a gr8 week !

This is my life in a nut shell…

I don’t know but my days just keep getting shorter. I am so busy with work and things happening here at home. I love summer,  but I find that when I start new projects, there are just not enough hours in the day. If you remember, with the help of my SO, we replaced the kitchen floor with new tile. I decided I could replace the dining room carpet with tile also. How hard could it be? No glue to scrap off the floor. Just pull up the old carpet and start laying tile. Wrong ! After pulling up the carpet, I found that I had to fill in hole and cracks. After working for a whole afternoon, I had blisters on my blisters. I had to wait for the cement to dry, which left me waiting till I worked 4 more 12 hour shifts. I don’t know about the rest of you, but when I start something I want to finish it. If I have to wait, I have a hard time getting back to it. Well it’s about 80% done, thanks to my daughter coming over and getting me motivated. I am hoping to finish it up before heading back to work on Friday.

On another note.. My son, his girlfriend and my grandbaby are moving out. They were going to stay a few mos till they got an apartment, that turned into a year and a grandbaby later. Oh ya say now nice… she will have her house back. Well to be honest, my sister is now moving back in. I am good with this as she has now been sober for over a year, has a good job and can help with the rent ect. It works for both of us. I could make it on my own, but there would be no extra cash for the “I want things.” Sis is excited about moving in and it’s all good right now. The house is a mess what with my son moving out.. me trying to put in a new floor and sis will be moving in this week. Things are out of place and it drives me nuts. I just want some order in my life ! lol. We will get it all put back together soon. Now you know what has been keeping me so busssssssy ! I am counting the days till I leave the mess behind and head to Miami and Key West… 2 weeks off work and a little vacations !!! Can’t wait….
