It's one of the reasons I fell in love with him Kades.

He still makes me smile.

we are the middle of a heat wave here, 101 right now. yesterday was just as bad. and to make it worse, our power went out.

do u know what little you can do without power. it was off from 2pm to 3 am

it made the house get very hot before it came back on.

i am smiling because it did come back on. also did do a couple things , that did not require electric appliances.

babe

My DIL went on a shopping trip with some of her friends and brought me back some "Bubble Up" pop. I haven't been able to find any in our area for many years. Used to be one of my favorite drinks.

Sorry I'm late but this is sooo exciting, JoAnn! That is such a cool field. I love woodworking and power tools but there are so many things I don't know how to do. I'm sure your granddaughter will end up being a master craftswoman. What area does she plan to go to work in now? (If I were you, I'd get my order in for any custom, built-ins or special furniture right away!) Congrats to you and your girl!

A year ago when our "daughter" was living with us and I was having a bad day, she phoned the house knowing we weren't here and sang a little song that she "just made up on the spot" It went "Laurie, I love you, Laurie your amazing..." DH as a second surprise put it on my cel phone as the ringtone for her. It was really fun because whereever I was this little song would play when she called.

Well, while in hospital she borrowed my new cel phone, which didn't have that special ring yet. I guess she decided to do something about it and recorded another one and hooked it up. This time it didn't say "Laurie", it said "Mom" and thanking me for always being there. We picked her up from the hospital yesterday and dropped her off at her home and we weren't 5 minutes away when the phone wrang from her newly charged cel and I heard this new little ditty.

I now get to smile (and get tears in my eyes) every time she calls me once again!

Thanks Babe, she always makes me proud, specially the way she has handled all the hassles with doctors lately.
