my daughter and two granddaughters came from hemet calif. to celebrate her b'day and mine.

we had champague and strawberries and peaches with a fruit dip. she picked up del. sandwiches from subway for our lunch. we also had cake and ice cream.

much good conversation and lots of laughs. i am really a lucky woman to have such sweet kids and grandkids.

Katie you bring tears to my eyes,
I know he is with you, guiding you, appreciating your very existence.
I'm so bad with expressing myself, can't tell you how my heart breaks for you (and most everyone). TJ is my Buck, best friend, world, everything.
I celebrate having someone like that!

Sorry I've missed this thread for awhile but wanted to catch up on everyone's news... so in celebration I wanted to send these smilies....
TO:

Trish: congrats on your new job...it's been a few weeks so you're probably just easing into it.....just think what your gas bill would be now!!!

Stacy: congrats on your new job, too, hope that you are really liking it and good luck, my dear

Barbara: sometimes it takes that "flash of lightning" to spark us into action......is it possible to ask what kind of a book you are writing???? One day you'll have to write an autobiography if you aren't already.......

Miniman: glad your daughter got her cellphone back......be gad she got it back......back when cell phones first came out one of our company's wives dropped her company issued cell phones to be used only for emergencies in the pool and ended up compensating the company nearly $400......

Alix: congrats on your daughter's achievements.....I know you must have been very proud of them and hope that your youngest is running with the best of them now

Terry: Happy Late Anniversary!!! Wow 36! We're going on 34!

SQ: new lawn mower and all for you.......what a lucky girl......I used to do the lawn work at my house, and only had a front and backyard to do in the Houston swamp, heat and humidity...I can't even fathom 5 acres......enjoy :)

Babestoo: that must have been a really nice birthday with your daughter and granddaughters.......they are learning far more than you realize about touching base with all generations

Kadesma: doing a jig in the store in the middle of the afternoon? Surely you haven't been hitting the wine aisle? Jest kidding.........I'm so excited for you to be going on your first trip....you will have such a great time..........and Mexico is such a nice destination........let us know how it goes

Katie: of course you're doing a great job on those dining chairs......wished you lived closer to me.......I have a set for you to do, too.....glad to hear that you're keeping busy..


For myself, back in KZ........the weather is beautiful and I'm missing most of it cause I'm jetlagged.......oh, well, will be better in a few weeks.....hahaha!!! Hope that this has caught me up on everyone since the last time that I posted.........

Katie, they say one's sense of smell is the most prominent. So I'm sure you are getting a happy dose of memory therapy. Good for you.
Glad to hear you are up for it.

My personal little celebration is that I don't work today and can be with my girls all day long.

My mom will be here in a couple hours to take ALL 3 of my kids for a couple days!!!
She usually only takes the boys, Lego girl is a mommy's girl and would get upset in the past.
But lately when the boys go she gets upset that she was left behind, so we're giving it a whirl tonight!
DH works nights, sleeps all morning til 1pm or so.
I have NO clue what to do with all that time alone!
I'll probably clean out the junk room..... :(

I figure cleaning the junk room is something I cant usually do because I get "help" and it ends up a zoo. I haven't done it yet so thats GOTTA be something unusual!!! :)
I might go ride my bike if its not too hot.
