Wow wow and double wow....The last two weeks have gone by in a whirlwind!!  Can't remember the last time we had a day all to ourselves without having to buy something, go somewhere, work, cook, decorate, or blow our noses...My favorite holiday of them All is Christmas but I Swear, this year, I don't think I even came Close to getting in the spirit of things!  THAT is a NEVER for me!  Hubby's Mom went through her surgery just fine and for a few days her dizziness was gone...mission accomplished, or so we thought.  The dizziness is back.  Now what...Who can find out?  Well, not us apparently.  The Dr's office isn't answering his phone so I guess we play the waiting game again...
My Aunt Josephine passed away on the 26th...(94).  She had a full life and tons of people who love her....She was my last Aunt to cross over...You know, I'm only 61...Where'd Everybody Go????Hahaaa....geeeez.....
Well, guess I'll get busy doing Something...A nice hot coffee would be a great start to things.
Enjoy your day guys!!

Merry Christmas Everyone!


Merry Christmas to all of you out there in BlogLand!  I know I'm putting this up a few days early but I didn't know when I'd be able to get back to do a Christmas post.  Hubby's Mom isn't doing well after her surgery last week.  She goes in for a CT scan today to see just what may be going on.  She had surgery last week to insert a small pump to the brain.  They thought she was accumulating excess fluid and hoped a pump may help with her dizziness.  She woke up yesterday with the same problems she had had Before surgery...hence, the CT scan today.  I Know you've been asked to pray for tons of people lately but if you wouldn't mind...please add Ann to your list.  
I love you all and can Never properly express how much you all are appreciated...All year long.
May God bring us Peace and Joy for this new year....

A SnowGlobe...

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We lounged around the house, cooked, drank coffee, entertained on Thanksgiving Day, and just generally enjoyed all the time off.  
I also came across a new template from one of my FaceBook photographers that I like.  She uses CS3 and I still use PSE9 here at work.  Trying to figure out the instructions between the two programs made me a Crazy woman!  It looked easy but easy wasn't in the details...Hahaaaa...Click photo to enlarge if you're so inclined.
I swore...a Lot and was tempted to purchase CSWhatEver it is this week but...I didn't.  I don't think I did too bad a job.  I really want to try this out on other photos but since I have cleaned out my photo library on my work computer...you're stuck with another shot of Sam!
Well, guess I'll close and get to the market...Have a great and relaxing evening!!

Participating in Wittle People Wednesday....

A Week Already? Geez...


Brother! A whole week has gone by without me paying attention! Now we're headed into the Thanksgiving holidays and it still feels like it should be October...I'm clueless. Hahaaaaa...I've been sitting here for the last ten minutes wondering what might interest you and can't seem to come up with One Thing!! It's just been work and home for us lately...boy, that gets old! But at least we have a home to Go to...those poor people in the NorthEast are Still homeless and it's been Weeks now... Well, guess I'll put an end to your misery and stop here... Hope your Thanksgiving is a warm and safe one!

OK Now...IF you're offended by a few curse words...Do Not Watch! I'm in my Pre-Election mode so just bare with me!Hahaaa....It's 'gonna be a Long 48 hours! We did a few chores around the house over the weekend, hubby cooked a great pork roast and I did a little laundry. Nothing spectacular. It rained Saturday afternoon and left us with a double rainbow...Oh, and by the way, I heard from my family up North and they all made it through Sandy!  Power went off but it's back on now and they are just left with cleaning up!  Thanks for all your sweet wishes!!!


Well, guess I'll get back to my nail biting and chain coffee drinking...WHAT???Hahaaa... Sweet night All!

FALL BACK NOV 4th!

FALL BACK ON NOV 4th here in the United States!   I Know you all remember to do this every six months and you really don't need a babysitter....Get Over IT!!Hahaaaa.....After all, you don't want to be late on Monday for work... ;o)
Nothing much happening here...just tapping my foot, waiting for the elections on Tuesday...tap...tap...tap....Don't mind me, I'm just fidgety today. 
We had NO trick or treaters last night...Quietsville!  Oh well...I didn't expect any anyway....
Still haven't heard from my family in CT.  But, I Know they are fine!  After all, I asked God to keep His Hand on them and All those on the coastal areas...praying.

Goodness....

The last few days have been downright horrible! God Bless all those people on the East Coast!! I have family in Connecticut abd I can't get a hold of them. I called yesterday morning and they said they were staying in their two story home and were prepared for the worst...I pray so. There are so many of us that know or have family in the warning zone...let's just all agree together that they are all, alright! I haven't been blogging lately...I attribute it to the pick up in things going on here, the election (feeling highs and lows over it), the storm. We have been glued to the news channels so much lately I feel I need to receive a paycheck from them! I also know that too much of Anything is as well, a bad thing so I've tried to back off a bit. I feel like I've been watching the movie, The Seventh Sign, over and over again!Hahaaa....which by the way was a good movie staring Demi Moore. Anyhow, guess I'll close for today...I am praying for our Nation.

Rachel and Josh...






I Finally got a chance to pick my camera back up!  It's been ages.... Believe it or not, it got HOT!  I think by the end of the session we were all ready to head for somewhere cooler.
This is Rachel and Josh and they are looking forward to the birth of their first baby, Zoey Grace.
Rachel is the daughter of an old friend of mine so you Know I had to get in on the festivities.  I can't believe I held Rachel in my arms as an infant...WHERE is the time Going???  Oh well, we have no choice but to move onward....
Hope you all have a great day!

A Birthday and Company...


Well, Good morning everyone! Last week was a busy one for me. It seemed the more I tried to get done, the farther behind I got. You know how you let the small things at home go and all of a sudden they turn into big things?Hahaaaa...Well, that's what my house looked like and we had company coming...Suffice it to say I finally got caught up but I VOW to keep up with things better in the future...You'd think I'd learn!

Saturday, I challenged my girlfriend to do something we'd NEVER done before...get a pedicure...WHAT??Hahaaa. No, I'd NEVER had a professional pedicure and neither had my friend. I'm a do-it-yourself type of person. But you know what? It Was Nice! Can't say I'll rush out and do it again any time soon but I certainly was surprised.

On Sunday we all celebrated Hubby's 65th birthday...He didn't want a huge Anything so we just packed up and went out to breakfast. I think as you grow older, you lose your taste for those boisterous celebrations. At our age, to just be remembered is enough. Well, that's about it for now. Hope you all are starting off Monday on a Good note! It's almost lunchtime here so I guess I'll go get a sandwich made...Enjoy the day!

The Next Debate!

I'm just Good for Nothing!  I DO have excuses for not posting this week....really....well....sorta...well, at work it's been the End of the month and year book work to get done...Hahahaaa....Well, it DID have to get done!  We also have company coming in this weekend so I really had to find the time to get the house in order...uggggg!  But tonight, I really WILL be busy!  The Vice Presidential Debate will be on between Ryan/Biden.  Another round of popcorn is in order.  Hope you all enjoy the evening and may God keep His Hand on Ryan!

Wednesday, October 3, 2012

It's That Time!

Yes...We will be watching the Presidential Debate tonight.  For us?  Team Romney....God Bless America...Now I've got to make sure we have popcorn....Sweet night everyone!

I Give Up...


The amount of time I've spent in this last week trying to get my blog going again is ridiculous!  I Knew that my problem would go unresolved when I contacted Blogger but I thought it was worth the try...nothing happened.  Then I decided to also contact Google.  Things finally started working.  I still can't "design" the background the way I want it...I've tried to upload my own picture for the background but it Never switches...nothing happens! I've tried all kinds of different templates...nothing.  SO, if this blog design EVER changes in the future, it'll be done by someone who can actually get it Done!  I've had it!  Blogger has finally defeated me!Hahaaa...It's good enough that I can do a post and upload a photo for a post...geeez.
We got up early yesterday and ran a few errands...had breakfast at the local IHOP and came home.  I guess I need to do a bit of laundry today; maybe clean out a few cabinets.  I look around the house and wonder where my maid went...Hahaaa.  There's always something to clean isn't there?!!
Hope you all have a good Sunday...

I need a Degree...seriously...

Where in the WORLD is the time going?!! It was just Friday wasn't it? It's been cooler and rainy here for the last several days which has been nice. We did nothing of importance this past weekend...I did some laundry while trying to change things up here on the blog. I switched over to the new interface for Blogger but it gave me FITS! I tried for 3 hours to get my background changed!Hahaaaa......geez louise. I finally read the help link and found out the background picture will NOT change unless it's transparent....and you have to have to have a degree in physics and know Steven Hawking, personally. So, if you happen to click onto this blog in the next few weeks, you may be saying Ewwwww a LOT!Hahaaaa......
Anyhoooo, hope you're having a bouncing Monday. I'd better give the blog design a rest and come visit you...Have a great one!

What a Week...

They are getting close to forcing me to upgrade to the newer interface here on Blogger. I have resisted! Here's the message I now see:

The old Blogger interface will be removed in the coming days.

We've made many improvements to the new Blogger interface. Learn more

You can upgrade to the new interface at any time.


Uggggg....Now I'll have to learn all over again how to enlarge photos...Why can't they just let us CHOOSE what WE Want??? Sorry for screaming...I'm in a MOOD!


These elections have had my attention along with the conventions...You DO NOT want me to start here on Blogger about how I feel. My FB and Twitter friends got a pretty good snoot full...Hahaaaa...


I also had Jury duty on Tuesday. No, they did NOT pick me! It was a TWO PRIOR, DWI...ILLEGAL from Argentina...and this was his THIRD ARREST for the SAME DA*N offense!

I was asked by the defense if I could be lenient....Hahahaaaa...."NO Sir! He hasn't learned YET that drinking and driving doesn't WORK???" moron....

Also, when defense asked if any of us belonged to ANY activist type groups (??????) I raised my hand once again, "What type of so called Activist groups are you referring to???"

"Oh, like M.A.D.D......"

Cutting him off at the pass, I replied instantly, "Yes I DO belong to M.A.D.D.!"

Have you contributed money?

Yes, I Have!!

Thank you Number 16! (That was my number)

Well, it's just as well...I would have fought for the MAXIMUM sentence of 20yrs and $10 thousand dollars AND DEPORTATION before he climbs back into a car drunk and kills someone!

BIG SIGH HERE.......So...Hahahaaa....I Sincerely hope your lives are cool and calm and peaceful. I keep waiting for Mine to get there.

Have a great one!

Three Whole Days...

Yes, another shot of Sam...I'm playing around in PSElements here at work. And YES! My work is all done...The end of each month is BORING here at the job.
It's Thursday and I am SO glad tomorrow's Friday...I've been so tired this week. I've stayed up late to watch the Republican Convention and staying up late does Not agree with me. It's not that I'm old or anything...I'm just not 30 anymore. I've been getting up between 4 and 5am and going to bed by 8pm for so long, I'm use to it. And yes it's true...we don't have much fun...Hahaaa...Oh well. At least we get a three day weekend. We might drive around looking for more good barbecue...maybe.
The grankids started back to school Tuesday. Sam is a Senior, Will is in 7th and Ruthie is in 9th. I cannot believe these kids are so old...Hahaaa....Me? I'm still 18!
Hope you all have a great evening. I think it's coffee that keeps me so young...Guess I'll go grab a cup...

Saturday Breakfast...








Lots of country western personalities have visited...


Well, Good Sunday Morning! I know you're drooling over all the good eats you see in the above photos!Hahaaa....And when I say breakfast...did you think I was kidding? Nope! Hubby and I headed to Giddings, Texas yesterday morning at around 7am. We also wanted to go to a small town called Lexington to Snow's Barbeque just to pick up some of their sauce...after all, it's on the way to Giddings. I think we left too darn early because we stopped at Snow's, got the sauce then ended up in Giddings around 9:30am...Hahaaaa....and we were Hungry! SO....since the Market opens at 7:30am...AND since they were Already cooking up a storm...we placed our order. It-Was-Delicious! Everything! They throw the cut of meat you ordered on butcher paper and waLaaaaa...you're ready to eat. The waitress saw me trying to sneak photos and came over to me and informed me that it was More than alright to take pictures and then invited me to go behind the counter for close-ups. If you're ever in Texas and want some great barbeque, check this place out!
Well, I guess I'll go make some more coffee and settle in for a good Star Trek movie. Enjoy your day Guys! (Click photos to enlarge)

I Swear! I Got Nuthin'!

You would think that I would have tons to blog about after a Week!! Well...I have got Zilch! Nada! This is Sam...She went BACK to the coast with her boss's family for a week...She was thoroughly pooped by the time they got home. I think it might have been a week, too long. She was already missing being home after a few days. Oh well, she's home now and none too soon. Her Cosmetology classes at the local college started yesterday as well. She'll be going a half day throughout her Senior year and finishing up before Christmas, next year.
It's been raining here...Always glad to get the rain! But today it's sunny and 94. I miss the cloud cover!
Well, I've bored you enough. Hope you all are having a good and busier week then I am!

Wordless Wednesday...


This is my Other Granddaughter, Ruth Ann...or as we call her, Ruthie. This is my son's daughter of whom I don't get the chance to see often but when we do, it's always a fun visit. We went shopping yesterday for school and she found some really cute things. Of course, she fell in love with a dress that is off limits for school...heartshaped top, strapless and short...Did I say, SHORT???Hahaaaa.....She'll be 16 in November. Time is Really flying guys! If you've got little ones still around, grab 'em up and gives 'em lots of love...
Hope you're having a great week!

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Our Sami got her LONG HAIR....cut off. She's growing up so fast. I like it, I like it...Hahaaaa...well, I do.....You know how Grandmothers are..."Don't Cut Your Beautiful Hair Off"!!! Then they do it anyway. Oh well, I did the same thing at her age. She's still our Baby...
Hope you're having a Good Wednesday!!

Celebrating and Good Eats...

Will had wanted a go-cart for his birthday and got, instead, a trip to the coast. He was SOOO sweet when he thought he wouldn't be getting one this year...After they got home, Tim told William to go mow the lawn (riding mower)...When Will was throughly engrossed in his task of mowing, Tim came out riding Will's new go-cart...Hahahaaa....Will was thrilled!
Some shrimp from Bubba Gump's....
Our sweet William...
Three suspicious characters...
Some more monkeying around...
Glad they didn't call me for bail money!!!
The race is ON!Hahaaaa
My Babies...

Well, we participated in the Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day yesterday! Boy! I got there at 10:30am and the lines were already building! I only had to wait about twenty minutes for my order but as the day wore on, we heard people were waiting upwards of two hours! With NO griping. Love it!
We haven't been up to much this last week...Crystal and Tim took William and Samantha to Galveston beach in celebration of William's 13th Birthday last Saturday. They had a great time. Sorry about the overload of photos but I figure I haven't blogged in a week...you can take it!Hahaaaa. I'm personally Loving Tim in his girlie man hat...What makes him one of the Good guys is that he loves to have a good time! We love the boy!
Well, guess I'll quit boring you...I know you all are behaving yourselves and looking forward to the weekend...I know I am! Have a great Thursday!
