Dinner Date with Old Friend

My friend Heather came into town last night. We haven't seen each other in 2 years. Oh we keep updated through facebook but to have a sit down chat, its been a while.

I don't know about you but I have insecurities when seeing a friend that I haven't seen in a while. Like do I look like I have fallen apart in the last couple of years. Do I have more weight on than the last time I saw I have a few more grey hairs or did I cover them well with hair color.

This time was I becoming more comfortable in my own skin?  I actually didn't think of any of those things. I just accepted the invitation and enjoyed myself so much.

Fire Alarm!

The fire alarm in our home went off at 2:13 am this morning. D and I jumped up and searched our home for the fire to only find nothing! If there were problems with the battery why didn't it just do that annoying chirping noise. Nope we got the full alarm, like when I burn the garlic toast. D went immediately back into a snoring not so much. This midlife menopause is no joke. The struggle is real people.

Grandbabies...Business trip......& AppleBee's

This past weekend I got to love up on all three grandsons....all weekend. That is one 2 year old, one three year old and a 6 year old. Busy I tell you, very busy. But I was still able to stick with my weekend plans of purging. I don't know if it is my age or what but I am feeling more and more that LESS is more. I am getting rid of everything. Red Racks will be loving me. I had my SUV packed and will have another load or two when I am done.
My sweet 6 year old Drake was so much help. He likes to organize like his mother....I may need to follow behind him as his idea and mine are a little different. But he is a good helper. The babies well they just followed me around eating fruit snacks and making more messes for me....but I loved it.

Hubby went on a short business trip. Just overnight this time. I am able to even get more done on evenings by myself. I have a list that I am pecking at each day. From purging to spring cleaning and carpet cleaning. I will be so happy when it is all done. Did I tell you how much I love spring!!

Another Tuesday came and we found ourselves at Applebees with my sweet Emmett. We decided to give Taco Tuesday a rest.

I know, the title must be confusing since it is Wednesday. I just wanted to write about our Tuesday's. Our oldest son is in the middle of a divorce. On Tuesdays we get to see our little pride and joy Emmett. Emmett is three years old and of course so precious to us. He is my oldest son's only child by birth and he is such a joy. I love seeing my son in him and watching him grow.

So every Tuesday we have Tacos at my sons' house and love up on that sweet baby E. Then I proceed to eat by weight in chips and salsa because life is better with chips and salsa in it.

As we drive away from our sons house I pray for them all and this thing called divorce. It is stressful.....and painfull for everyone. Until next Tuesday....may God be with our sweet baby and his daddy.

Time Flys!

It has been almost 4 years since my last post. We not counting the one where I am excited about spring. So much has happened in that time. For one my youngest son Drew has two count them two open heart surgeries. The first one was a mess. But the second one was done this past January and was a huge success!. We are counting our blessings for sure. That son and his wife welcomed a beautiful baby boy on a cold December day in between these heart surgeries. Everything must have been working fine with that son because that baby boy is a cutie!
Oldest son has given us a few grey hairs as well. Lots of changes in his life...some good...some scary...some good.....some bad. He keeps us on edge and praying. Then there is our daughter. She is the living in a big city. With a career and a boy friend by her side. SO happy for her.
Hubby and I are just riding the waves of our children. Thanking God every day for his grace. And spending quality time together when we can. Time has gone by so fast......

This is my most favorite time of year. I so enjoy seeing all the tree's in bloom. To most people the new year is a new beginning for them. Not me its Spring!
 My sweet hubby has worked so hard this past winter with interior painting. I am really enjoying the new color of DoveTail Grey. It is a Sherwin Williams paint color but I don't use their paint. I prefer Behr paint. So what I do is take the color swatch to Home Depot and have them mix the color for me. Its how I roll. Its how I get the paint color I want and brand of paint I want.
Now it is time for Spring cleaning. Purge is the name of the game this month. I will be going through every room and every closet. It is such a great feeling for me to have it all done.
