Good Morning

Been a while since I made an entry, so I thought I'd make an attempt this morning. I tried yesterday, but all my holiday graphics did not show up right, and gave me a whole lot of red x's. I really hate how aohell and photobucket have our journals all messed up. The other way worked just fine. The pictures above were taken about a week ago. I know, it took me long enough to post them right, lol. I have just been too busy. I have read journals though and been commenting. I was so far behind. Each morning I awakened to over 400 emails. I am sorry to say I had to delete alot of them, I just couldn't catch up. I'd get 1 journal read and commented and 6 more would pop up, lol. Since I started this entry, already 8 entries popped up.

I've been busy watching over Joe's Mom. She's been here since last week. I've had to babysit my grandkids. Go grocery shopping. And I cleaned everyroom in my apartment. I mean deep cleaned it. And man did it need it too. I spent a total of 7 hours just cleaning the kitchen and livingroom. Yesterday was a full day of cooking.

I made bbq chicken, burgers, hotdogs, macaroni salad, deviled eggs, sliced onions, lettuce and tomatoes for the burgers. Also made a grilled zucchini on the grill. It turned out great. For dessert it was sugar free strawberry shortcake. I bought a sugar free poundcake, fresh strawberries, and sugar free vanilla icecream. Joe's Mom is a diabetic, so I had to make sure she had a dessert she could eat also. I was so full after dinner and dessert.

Jim and Joe took Rebecca outside and set off firecrackers, and whistler's and sparklers for her when it got dark enough. That made Rebecca's night. I think it also made the guys night too. Two grown men acting like lil boys, lol. They were laughing up a storm.

Today is another busy day. I am taking Joes mother out shopping and then to lunch. We're going to Kmart, Walmart and then to the Red Robin Diner for lunch. She's going home either tonight or tomorrow, and I want to spend some more time with her before she leaves. Rebecca will miss her alot when she goes home. She loves her mommom I very much. They have talked, told jokes and stories, danced, played hide and seek together over the past week. Rebecca has had a great time and I think mommom I will be glad to get home and rest, lol. Oh and the 3 of us have also been taking walks. Mommom and I walking with our canes and Rebecca walking ahead of us, lol.

I hope everyone had a great day yesterday, full of good food, laughs, family and fireworks. Here on east coast it did rain, but most were able to see fireworks display despite the rain. My daughter Emma has told me after the baby is born, they are moving into a bigger house. So, Jim and I decided we are going to ask her landlord if we can rent the one she lives in now. It has 3 bedrooms, livingroom, kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, fenced yard and the rent is only 500.00 a month. The neighborhood is alot better then mine and so is the school. So keep your fingers crossed it works out for us, please.

I guess that's about it for now. It's 9am and I am getting hungry. I'm thinking a pepper and egg omelet on a whole wheat wrap. I love those things. So take care everyone, enjoy your day.

Love to you all..............................
