We're going to Napa tomorrow to pick up the wine from our wine club. It will probably be at least 80 degrees there. Should be beautiful. In fact, we should have 80's for the first part of the week here. ah....Spring!

Well, I am officially jealous of your 80's minniecarousel. I woke up to 36 this morning. It did get up to the 60's though.

Your wine club sounds interesting. Have fun in Napa.

minniecarousel...hope you had a good trip to Napa, sounds fun!


Glad you had good week-end AR and fun times with your sweet family . Also glad to hear Chuck and kids better. Seems so many virus' are going around. It's as tough on grandma's as it is on lil ones when they are sickly . Spring has sprung and many in our area are suffering with allergies.

Your weather sounds like ours, cool nights but days sunny and warm . Went to our 2 DG's soccer and foot ball games on Sat., followed by lunch, then onto our Comm College Renn. Fair. The grands had fun with the all Medieval activities and enjoyed getting faces painted. Good times!

Had a shopping spee for some much needed spring clothes today - splurged more than I wanted, but we have 2 grands (8th & 12th) graduating this yr, so that was my excuse . DH wanted to try the ribs at Boston Market...they were pretty tasty. Then we stopped at Cold Stone Creamery - really did not need chocolate lava sundae nor strawberry funnel cake sundae.....but after waiting in line 45min it seemed like the only rational thing to do!??!


Amen on catching the terrorist before anymore innocent people were hurt...so sad...my heart and prayers go out to all affected by terrible tragedies.


Everyone take care and have a good week!

Thanks 4nana. We did have a fun weekend.

Today I went for my walk and had quite a shock. My friends store was closed for the week due to a death in the family. I asked one of the other store owners and he said it was their daughter in law. She was only 42 and died of an aneurism. It was very quick. That's all I know. I feel so bad and would ask for your prayers. I don't know her home address so I will have to wait until they get back next week to send over some flowers to their shop.

Boy you just never know. Her daughter in law is the same age as my Chuck. It's just so sad.

Oh my, 42 is so young. Prayers for your friend & their family.

Napa is such a pretty area. We had just sat down to have our glass of bubbly when I got a call from my sister - she had fallen while walking her dog. She was shook up, had already called 911. She fell on her replaced knee and couldn't get up on her own. She was afraid she'd need to go to the hosp and worried about getting her dog home. Turns out, the paramedics were able to get her on her feet, stopped the bleeding above her eye & she walked home. Her neighbor was able to take her to the ER. I went over this afternoon and her knee is black & blue, but it doesn't hurt. They used glue on the cut in her eyebrow.

I'm glad her neighbor was able to take her to the ER becuase we hit a lot of traffic coming home. I think a lot of people went to Napa since the weather was so warm. She called about 10 minutes after we got home to tell us that she was home from the ER. I was no help! I'm glad she's OK.

Angelrose, how very sad about your friend's DIL . I'm so sorry and send hugs and prayers . Sadly way too young!

This hits close to home, as for years I've been a nanny to 2 children who lost their Mommy (35yo) due to an aneurism shortly after her 2nd child was born . Very heartbreaking and am blessed their Daddy and I found each other and I can offer my TLC to these sweeties, who we love like our own grands.

minniecarousel, so sorry about your sister's fall, thankfully it wasn't worse and good she is on the mend. My good friend is recovering from her knee replacement, so know the pain and lengthy recovery/rehab they go through.

Napa sounds wonderful Minnie, as does the wine! Sorry for your sister, thank goodness it wasn't more serious.

4nana, I agree, ice cream is the only thing to do after standing in line for so long


Angel, that is so shocking, WAY too young. Her poor family, I can't imagine

On a happier note, Dollywood sounds like such fun, I know you will take some wonderful pictures!

The weather has turned so dreary again here. I spent all morning ironing 15 of DH's lightweight shirts, then he was back in his winter coat this morning

Hope everyone has a pleasant evening!

Thank you minniecarousel. I'm so sorry about your sister falling. Hope she feels better. I know how a fall like that can really jar you.

Thank you 4nana. Losing their mom so young is just terrible. I'm so glad they have you to give them your love.

snappyd, I definitely will be taking pictures at Dollywood. Only 53 more days.

And only 282 more days until Disney World. But I'm not excited about either trip as you can tell.

Hello my friends. I had such a wonderful weekend.

Friday I started my day at IHOP and had an omelet instead of pancakes. It was delicious but I think I had as many points as with pancakes! I went to Walmart and picked up a few things and then went to the mall and got a card for my friend.

I stopped at Target and returned a top and got a few things there too. My main stop was at Kohls. I had a 20% off coupon and got 5 tops that I had been looking for. Plus they were on sale and I got $10 Kohls cash for next time.

I came home and rested until4 when Chuck called to tell me to come over around 5:30. The kids ran to greet me. Boy I love that. We went to Red Robin for dinner. I had the chili cheeseburger, in a lettuce wrap. That was so much better than a bun. Buns get soggy after a few minutes, lettuce stays crispy. After we put the kids to bed, we chatted for a while and then I left for home around 9.

Saturday we went to swimming lessons. Jesse did really well and did the best dive out of the whole group. He kept his promise to me and was very good all week in school and at swimming. After we got home, they asked me to come back around 2 so they could do some grocery shopping. Now Jesse wanted to play with his friends, so it was just Zoey and me.

"Grandmom, push me HIGHER. HIGHER grandmom" I wish you could see my arms. They are 9 feet long after a half hour of that. I told her I had to sit down and rest for a while. Yeah, that lasted all of two whole minutes. Then it was back to "Grandmom, push me HIGHER! Ifinally had to ask her if she wanted to watch cartoons, so I could rest!

Jesse came back to ask for a snack and then went right back out. He came back in after a half hour as his friend was having her dinner. So we all watched cartoons until mommy and daddy came back.

They asked me to stay for taco night. It was a fun evening. I waited until they both went to bed and then I went home.

Sunday I had to be there by 7:45am. Karen was running a 5k and the kids were running a 1k. While Karen was signing up, someone called my name and I looked at it was a friend for WW. She had mentioned that she and her daughter were doing a 5k at the meeting, but I didn't know it was going to be at the same place.

Chuck and I watched the kids at the playground while she ran. She did really well and then it was time for the kids. Karen was going to run with Jesse and Chuck was going to be with Zoey. I stayed at the finish line and chatted with my friend who did really well too for a first time.

Chuck came back with Zoey. She just cried so they walked around the refreshment stand and came back. I told her she tried and I was proud of her. Jesse came running across the finish line and Karen was back a ways. I was so proud of him. Karen told us later that he was so far in front of her that she lost sight of him. She found him sitting on the side, waiting for her. AWWWWW But then he saw a little boy crying, so he went up to him and told him he would run with him until he found his mom. Wasn't that sweet?

My friend told me that you can walk a 5k. I didn't know that. But next time Karen runs her 5k, I will sign up to walk it. I could probably run for a short while, but I know I can easily walk it. So that's something to look forward to. I don't think she is going to do anything until November because nobody runs in the heat and the humidity around here.

After her run Karen was famished. We all went to IHOP and I had my omelet again. It was really a fun day and I gave the kids a present for doing so well all weekend. Just a little monster truck for Jesse and a couple of princess figurines for Zoey.

I went home and watched tv for the rest of the day. (A lot of it with my eyes closed).

Such a wonderful weekend. I look forward to every weekend when I can spend time with the family again.

AR, sounds as tho you had another wonderful and fun filled week-end . You are a busy bee and so blessed to live near your son/family and be so involved in their lives . I know how much it means to your sweet grands to have Grandma so close and priceless for you too!!

Beautiful sunny wkend here that kept us busy - Friday was my hair cut, then I made lunch for my bro who is home recouping from a hospital stay for Afib. Needless to say, it was scary, but thank God he is much better! That evening we hustled bustled to watch 3 grands Lacrosse, soccer, and football games . Sat. brought another grand's soccer game and by then we were gamed out . Then onto groc shopping for my dear Mom, cook dinner for her, and we spent the evening chatting. Sadly at 83yo her health slipping, so we try to visit often and do all we can to help and truly appreciate the times we have together . Sun. evening DD1/SIL and grands brought dinner over and we watched Cpt. America on Netflix and enjoyed a relaxing evening.

It’s supposed to rain thru Wed, but at least it’s washing some of the aggravating pollen away for allergy sufferers. Hopefully it clears up like they’re expecting, as we’re looking forward to a long week-end get away to Williamsburg for our anniversary.

snapppyd ~ hope you have a safe, wonderful, and relaxing trip!

Everyone have a good week!

snappyd, have a great time relaxing at the pool. Sounds wonderful.

4nana, you had a busy weekend too. I can't believe you went to all those games. LOL Your grands are very athletic. I hope you mom does better. It's great that you can be with her as much as you can. I'm sure that means a lot to her.

We had a rainy day yesterday but today was sunny and at time cloudy. But it was really nice out.

After my workout this morning, I tried jogging. Yes, I know that is a scary thought. I did ten minutes running around my driveway. Well almost. I did stop every once in a while and picked up branches while I walked a few steps. I HATE picking up branches. But I did get a lot of jogging in.

Then when I went for my walk, I actually did a lot of jogging. Twice around Smithville, almost. I did have to walk a bit now and then. More on the second time around and the third time I had to walk the whole way around.

So I'm trying. I really want to be in shape for our trip to Dollywood and maybe in November I can enter that 5K with Karen. I don't expect to jog the whole way of course, but if I can do maybe a mile, I will be happy and walk the rest.

My ankle doesn't seem to bother me too much. Except for the picture of me limp/jogging.

Something came up and we had to cancel our trip, hope to be able to go in the fall. Oh well, c'est la vie.

Angel, you are a wonder! I really need to start walking, I sit in front of this computer FAR TOO MUCH!

Oh snappyd, I'm so sorry you had to cancel your trip. On the other hand it looked like lots of rain down in Miami. It may be different in Orlando, but the fall will be perfect, I just know it.

I spent to day babysitting Jesse. Last night he had a fever and threw up. Today I asked him what made him sick and he told me his head hurt and that's why he threw up. We are hoping that he isn't getting migraines.

But he was laughing and fine all day. We played all day and now I am beat. Hot bubble bath for me.

My leg muscles are sore today, but I am going to keep at it tomorrow. I won't be able to do much until Monday again. Saturday and Sunday I am going to birthday parties with Jesse. Friday is my IHOP day and shopping. I so look forward to the weekends.

I had a wonderful weekend with the grandkids. Friday I had my usual IHOP pancakes and got some great bargains on clothes. I got a pair of peach stretch skinny jeans that perfectly matched a top I got last week. I also got a pair of navy dress pants and navy and black capri's. Everything was on sale so I was happy.

Chuck called and asked me to come around 5 for dinner at Olive Garden. Karen had picked up the kids and would meet us there. I was being good. Well, as good as one can be at Olive Garden. I had the soup that I always get and the sausage and peppers with ziti. I ate all the sausage and peppers but only a few on the ziti. We all enjoyed our meal. Karen and I took the kids to Toys R Us to get birthday presents for twin girls and Jesse's best friend Connor. Of course grandmom can't go into a toy store without buying my babies something. Zoey wanted a pink Hello Kitty purse and Jesse wanted a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Karen got Zoey a pair of high heels. She had her choice on pink or blue and she chose the blue ones. Even the purple ones couldn't change her mind.

We walked around and we found Thunder Cats stuff on sale. No Chuck has been a fan of that cartoon since his childhood. I got him the only small action figure set they had left. Karen bought him and Jesse the small backpacks. I rode home with Karen and the kids while Chuck drove home from the mall where he bought a few things.

I got home around 9 and took a nice hot bubble bath to relax.

Saturday I did my grocery shopping and then took my trash to the dump. I had a quick lunch and then went over to take Jesse and Zoey to the twin girls birthday party. It was fairly nice out so all the kids played outside. They had a nice swing set and a small trampoline. Zoey went right to the big slide and then she went to the swing. Yeah, the next thing I hear is, "GRANDMOM PUSH ME". I wasn't going to get out of that duty. So we did that for a while until she got tired and went to the playhouse. Jesse was mostly on the trampoline. But he did play with her in the playhouse.

There was a long swing and the father of the twins would get three kids on it and then swing them really high. Well, Zoey wanted to go on that. He put her in the middle and told her to hang on real tight. You see where this is going, right? I turned to look at Jesse and I hear a scream. I turned around to see the father carrying a crying Zoey over to me. Thank goodness she wasn't hurt, just scared and very dirty. I dusted her off and told her she was OK and she could go back to playing. She wanted to sit on my lap for a while and eat some of my potato chips. I got her more and some juice. Then she went back to playing. I was talking to some of the mothers when I couldn't find Zoey. UHOH!

I ran inside and they said she was inside playing with the dolls. So I had a few minutes peace and quiet and read my Kindle for a while.

We all had birthday cake and then Chuck came to pick us up. It was a fun time for me. I had dinner with them, but for the life of me I can't remember what I had.

Sunday I was there at 8:30 for swimming lessons. Zoey did well except for crying when she first got in the pool. Jesse did well, until a different instructor told him to swim on his back. He refused to do it and when she tried to help him he got his foot around and pinched her with his toes! Well, Karen got him right out of the water for a "conversation". The instructor said she felt bad. I told her absolutely not. He has to learn that is totally unacceptable behavior. Jesse came out and apologized to her and asked if he could please come back for the rest of the lesson. He did swim but not on his back. He gets so scared of new things and fights back. That will never do. But he is learning. I'm so proud of the way Karen is raising both children.

Karen and I had bagel sandwiches for lunch and then I took Jesse to his best friends birthday party. Both boys really miss each other since Jesse started a new school. But they would have all split up anyway in September for kindergarten.

It was too cold outside so most of the kids moved inside to play video games. Grandmom found herself outside with a few other moms and no Jesse. I went inside and he was upstairs. Grandmom sat herself down on the couch and read my Kindle. It was great! I had a piece of birthday cake too.

Karen came to pick us up and was talking to Connor's mother. Strange thing. She had bought Chuck and Karen's old house and her sister lived in back. She hasn't been able to sell it in this market so she is renting it. Isn't that a small world?

We got home and I stayed for a while and talked to Chuck and then I left. I got home around 8:30.

They both kept thanking me for going to the parties with the kids, but I had a wonderful time all weekend.
