I have been really lame in trying to get back into the blog-o-sphere. I'm not sure why...perhaps it's 'cause I haven't had a lot to add to the world lately. Tomorrow is my date for the last 40+ years birthday and we will be having a birthday celebration so life will be picking up. Until then here are some random thoughts and happenings. I apologize ahead of time for the lameness but it is the necessary outcome of a very 'shuttered' life!
I finally was able to get something positive from being the big Six uh oh! While standing in the check out line at the grocery store chatting with one of my favorite cashiers I learned that the grocery has 5% off for Seniors on Thursday! Who knew? Obvs not me....but I quickly fessed up to my age and was thrilled to get the discount. Now my twenty something daughter is hoping to accompany me to the grocery NEXT Thursday! Funny how quickly my status changed from good OLD Mom to cool OLE Mom, hahaha!
I play my i-tunes on my computer while I compose my posts. Today I learned that the Pink tunes my daughter put on for me are NOT the clean ones I was used to singing along to on the radio. Who knew? I don't think I had ever paid close attention to the difference but believe me, the F-bomb is all over the place. I'm thinkin' I'm going to make sure I replace them with the clean ones. Imagine Sush playing her i-tunes while any of her precious grandbebes are over and Pink belting out her F-bombs. Horrors!
We finally were able to celebrate Christmas with the family in town on Monday! We brought our gifts to our son Tim and my daughter-in-love, Lisa's (parents of Lily) new home. There, our other son Steve, Jr and another daughter-in-love, Terri (parents of Trey and Peter) joined us. It was lots of fun and proved that Christmas isn't limited to the one day and doesn't need the decorations or tree to feel like Christmas. I am going to add to my lameness of the last few weeks and admit I thought to bring the camera, but never remembered to use it. You will have to take my word for the fact that the trio of grandkids were as adorable as ever and my grown children as lovely as always!
And now for the real lameness or should I say lateness of my life? Might as well air all the dirty laundry at once, n'est-ce pas? My Christmas trees need to be taken down. I have Christmas decorations all over the house waiting to be packed and put away. Tomorrow we will be entertaining children and grandchildren and the house is a clutter with last years Christmas. My family's tradition is that Christmas MUST be put away by today...the Feast of the Epiphany or 'Little Christmas' or bring you bad luck.
Pray for us...
