Calling them Misses is just precious. I hope that's something he keeps doing as they all get older.

House is cleaned & I am eating lunch.
We have a realtor coming today for a pre-listing visit.
I guess the moving has begun.

I wish you all a good Thursday.

3:36p California here I am and have been all week!
Weather is cooler here than I am used to for my visits, but might be normal, not sure. Tina maybe you can tell me if this cooler weather is normal for this time of year?

Bestofour...I suffer from depression, runs in our family. Depression can affect you in different ways, some days you just have no energy or "get up and go". Sometimes I can feel just fine, then it is like someone poured a bucket of molasses on my head and I can feel it just run down my body and consume me. I used to take antidepressants, but decided to learn to deal with it and do pretty good most times. I can say that i read somewhere that you can have problems with your work life, or problems with your personal life and deal with it, but if you have problems in both personal and work lives at same time, that is hard to navigate through. My personal life is usually always ok. It is my work life that is so hard and I can wake up in the middle of the night thinking about a work problem and that is the end of my sleep.

So Junie, do you have any problems that you are laying awake thinking of? I do that wake up and can't go back to sleep a lot if work is bad. So I take a Tylenol PM sometimes, if I know I have "work related" problems because I know I will just wake up and start worrying. Being tired and trying to deal with any unpleasant situation is really hard.

Well back to work. Have a wonderful Thursday to all. Missed you guys, just working hard!

I have actually seen it snow here in April. Once, 20 something years go. It is good you got here this week. It was colder last week and all month. This is the first day I felt like moving.
I cleaned my fridges. And took my self off to the dumpster.

6:26pm

waiting to go to Maundy Thursday services..
Sheri, do not feel guilty. I am not what you would call a good housekeeper. You can come to my house, & not worry about my bathroom or the beds or dishes & food.. but I am not a organizer or a duster.I just did this extra b/c I had the realtor coming.

Mary: Sometimes I have issues I think about & cannot go back to sleep--but I think this is inherited (some) as the older my uncle got the less he slept at night-- and some is a new med I am on---I have always had to go to bed late so I can sleep until the proper time to get up...but since this new med, if I wake up at any point to use the bathroom, I am done sleeping. as long as I do not do that 2 nights in a row, I can get by. No Tylenol PM for me..I have to watch what meds I take.

Tina you made me smile that you took yourself off to the dumpster.

I finally got myself up, cleaned a little, and went to the grocery store.

mj, I think you told once before but I forgot - what type of work do you do?

I decided to send a card to the graduate. Even though she has no idea who I am it's a good thing that she graduated from high school and I hope she has a great life from here on out.

Junie that picture on FB is precious. He's the cutest little man.

Sheri, the child singing is Nora (I am pretty sure). blush and the one with a Paci in her mouth is Heidi.

Henry LOVES his sisters...but Valarie & her DH are trying promote a special bond between Henry & Heidi as Nora & Cora are often joined at the hip & leave Heidi to her own.
Not to give the wrong impression, as if Heidi has a problem they will both run to help her, but still it is often good to have 2 & 2.

Nora was singing "Rock A Bye Baby." and Val thinks that is an awful song as the baby falls down...IMO the song is not the point--I think that the girls were impressed that I sang to them, and so were singing too---Mommy does not sing...well she says she does not...but then so did her sister & I caught her singing to one of her boys.
BUT that video makes this Grandma's heart sing.

Good choice about the graduation.

Tina: Sheri is right--I am now smiling also......

Mary: have fun (well try to) on your trip.

I am off to watch 3 of my shows that I recorded. Sweet Dreams everyone wavy

A word about my dumpster. There are 3 of them available to me. They are about 5 1/2 feet tall. I'm 5'8" Taking the trash out is not my favorite thing to do. If I have a large bag it is almost impossible to get it in. If they are smaller bags, it is easier. I tend to put it off until I can't stand it any more. That makes it a job. One I don't like .A year ago, when I had a frozen shoulder, it was really hard. And the nearest one needs car trip..
Sweet dreams all.

Tina, maybe it is time to pass the dumpster duty to Jonni. thumbup

We are getting freezing rain today.

I spent the day taking DD to the hospital. She had a root canal done that has turned to an abscess. Her face is so swollen...it looks awful. They gave her antibiotics but if the swelling continues to go back for an intervenous treatment. She just started a new job on Monday...this was the last thing she needed at the moment.

So I now have the grandboy here for a few days...and he is making it quite clear that he is not happy that his sister lives with us.

Jonni is about 5'3" and 110 pounds. That being said, she does her fair share.
I hope everyone has a peaceful Friday.

gracious, you need some height in your family, Tina....so sorry that this job is so hard.

I cleaned out 2 cabinets & a drawer this morning. Now I will go to the grocery to buy items to take to a family dinner we are having tomorrow.

It is sunny here as well....for now.

I wish you all a fantastic Good Friday !

Jonni is my dinkiest child. Even Teddy is an inch or so taller than she. The rest of my family is slightly taller than norm.

dodge sent me some rudbeckia seeds and I planted them this afternoon. She also sent some red poppy seeds that I went ahead and spread but it may be too early for them. We shall see.

I am glad that Dodge has contacted you. I wonder about many of our 'lost' forum friends.

The sun is shining again...it is a welcome sight. I have to go pick up DD later and drop them off at my mom's...the Easter bunny always visits them at my mother's. I get to have a night to myself later.

Have a good one.

Good afternoon.

I just finished the first 7 layer salad that I have ever made... why my DH was so excited to eat it. He said but then what is not to like about bacon as an ingredient. He is right. My family party is this afternoon. IT is rainy (off on) & cool here, "They" say that it will snow here tomorrow. some forecasters say accumulation, some forecasters say no accumulation. It is good that the family get together is today.

Thank You so very much, Tina. Everyone seems to like it.

Today I found out that my daughter who lives in Virginia, went with my nephew (her cousin who is stationed out in DC) to see their great uncle (My dad's brother.)..he is the one living sibling out of 12.
I am so glad that they got to meet him. He is a great guy who has a Doctorate & used to write curriculums for universities.
He was employed by the University of Maryland.

I am home now....

7:43 PM EST Saturday

Junie, I posted about my seeds from dodge in the flower forum so I can keep us posted about if they bloom or not. I don't think I've ever made a 7 layer salad but I sure do love eating one. Something about the combination is so good and refreshing.

Sunny, you probably won't know how to act with a night to yourself. Stay out of trouble :)

Tina, did I read that you're 5'8"? Shelley is 5'8 1/2" and she's the tallest woman in our family. We're a bunch of short people.

We had our church Easter egg hunt today and play practice. It was from 11-3, about an hour too long.

Sheri: I like the 7 layer salad as well. However next time I make one I will use vidalia onions or leeks...even red onions are too strong once they sit awhile.
4 hours does seem like a lot. Was it the last practice? in that case I could understand a practice that was that long.


I am watching "The Ten Commandments" The original one with Charlton Heston. When it first came out Mom took us to the Drive-In to see it.
and I have a problem with that. if it was made in 1956,,,I was 4 then--and I know we were living in our 2nd house & we moved there when I was 6.....but oh well...perhaps it was a re-release.

I spent the night at the hospital with g-boy and his 104.5* fever....today I have two sick grandkids with gastro. The Easter bunny really played a April Fool's on us all.

OH MY !! I am so very sorry. It is bad enough when anyone is sick, and sick enough to end up in the hospital--BUT when it is a little one, it is worse..they are too young to completely understand. I do so hope the Grands feel better soon and that they do NOT share.

it does not sound like a very nice Easter. But I guess there is next year.

That is frustrating Junie.

Thanks for the well wishes...it seems all we do is deal with virus's here. It has been a bad Winter for 'bugs'. They just shut down one of the hospitals for visitation because of a mumps outbreak.

The kids seem a bit better today...fevers have gone down.

I need to hit the laundry baskets today.
