Decorating

Very little. Just not into it anymore. Maybe give my decorations to the daughter. ?

I need to get rid of stuff. Too much stuff.

I liked it in my younger days, but my older age is no more.

I wish the color would show up in sharing, oh well.

Happy first day to Halloween! We have the granddaughter for the weekend, love her but I am tired for all weekends. Hopefully next summer I will be back to my old self again. Hope.

Have a great weekend!

Granddaughter

We have been watching the granddaughter since mid-August because mommy is doing the army thing. It’s been fun but also tiring. I’ll miss her but be glad to get back to being grandparents and seeing her on an occasional weekend. I will really like seeing the daughter again and being able to text her. She is my bestest friend as her daughter likes to say. lol

I see why grandparents are not parents, couldn’t keep up with youngsters. I should have taken better care of myself. Listen young people so you will have better older years. 🙂

We made many fort blankets. Loved doing those as a kid.

She doesn’t eat well, so it was a challenge every day. She got fed interesting meals. Can’t wait till she is older. Her mom was a picky eater but a better eater and now she loves vegetables that I don’t. That makes me happy.

She does have quite the imagination and loves to sing her own lyrics.

We did the best we could to teach her to pick up. She has the bad habit of leaving a mess and I will be glad to have the house back to normal. Only picking up after hubby. lol

We didn’t do anything special since hubby works and I’m still recovering from my stroke. Still tired from that. Maybe next summer, I hope, but not four weeks straight. 🙂

outside fun
such a big helper

Hum Drum

Had a good weekend watching the granddaughter for her mommy to go to drill weekend. And I thought I was done with those. At least I have help with her. I’m amazed that I did them by self from 1999-2014 when hubby was in the Navy reserves and then the army reserves until retirement. I think if I had been with him his entire career, would have handled it???? My immaturity says no, but my love says hell yea!

He was a great grandpa, made her a tent fort!

I loved making these as a kid. Brought back good memories.

Granddaughter Week

Me and Mr. Pineapple, queezey peezy until Zozo takes it away. lol 🙂
Uncle Jessup, the main sitter.

She likes him watching her because she can pick on him. lol It’s good for him instead of watching videos and gaming all day unless I need help which is getting less by the month. Yay! Mommy is at army training until Friday so we will have fun all week and be wore out. 🙂 She plays pretty good with her blocks and stuff. Only complaint like any kid never wants to eat at the table or a meal. Growing up I knew it was the law to eat at the table and at meal time. Times have changed. Society has gotten to busy. We ate most meals with our kids at the table but they did pick up bad habits with eating away from the table at all hours. Their friends and activities changed them to eat whenever and where ever. I miss Sunday dinners with the family. Good times and good food. Miss my grandparents.

Unhinged the Movie

The daughter and I went to the movies on Sunday early afternoon. We loved getting to watch a movie at a theater again! 🙂 Our theater is a family owned one, they do own several in our state, but still small. So since June they could only show old movies. I wanted to go to a few but didn’t work out. Summer time we don’t always get to the movies but do like going all the other months. We probably see one every month or two months. Love the theater and I really hope they survive this virus. I’m not one to download movies. We did watch one and can’t even remember the title, it was a Disney one. I would rather go to a big screen to watch a movie.

We watched Unhinged! Oh, it was good. All about road rage and it is a scary thought that it could and probably does happen. Russell Crowe was soooo good in it! He was evil to the core! If you like movies definitely see this one!

I loved eating popcorn from the theater! Yum. We had only 4 others in the theater so it was like having our own viewing. The older lady behind us yelled yes at one point of the movie and it was funny but we were thinking it too! 🙂

We are definitely going to go to more movies! The daughter and son are going to see one next week while I watch the granddaughter! 🙂

I do have to say it was strange not having more people in the theater including employees. Sad. But hopefully it will improve.

Save the theaters! 🙂

Back…I think

I have no excuse for not blogging other than not doing it. 🙂 I did let my site go back to the free version, so I had to redesign it. I like the new design. I see there are some new features if a paying account. I will ponder that for awhile if I finish the year strong. 🙂

I still miss the check spelling and english button. 🙁

The son did graduate in May. The school only did an online ceremony which was good but I think they could have done a regular ceremony after seeing several friends’ kids having one. 🙁 Now, we have another senior and so hope he gets one. He was going to do the online learning until they showed what classes were offered. He was disappointed but switched to going to the school. He doesn’t fear the virus because he has been working the whole time other than a month and they take his temperature every time, but he had hoped for the online since it sounds like little socializing at school. 🙁

I still do not know anyone who has had it. I hope it stays that way. 🙂

The son that graduated stayed with his job until about June and then quit because there was a kid he worked mainly with that was not nice to him. He wished he wasn’t like that because he misses the job a bit. Maybe things worked out because his car has quit and would have been difficult to get him to the job because it was 30 minutes away. He has been helping me out and chilling until hopefully this virus slows down and then find a job. He gets anxiety with wearing the mask. He has allergies so sneezes a lot which isn’t a good thing right now. LOL He won’t take any medicine. Which is good because he doesn’t like pills but yet he would feel better if he did, perhaps. LOL

I have been busy watching the granddaughter when the daughter goes to work. I forget how much a toddler wears me out. I just don’t have the energy now to do it ALL. LOL I am amazed how I did it in my 20s and 30s. 🙂 The daughter has met a very nice man who I think may be the one! He is really nice and polite. Win Win. 🙂

Hubby is still truck driving but definitely is counting down the days to retire, 2 years! 🙂 I’m counting the days as well. Ready for him to be home all the time! 🙂

Our 3 1/2 year old refrigerator broke this week. Sucks. So we got to decide on a new one. Just sucks that it has to go to the appliance graveyard. We all liked it. 🙂 It was a challenge this week with me watching the granddaughter 24/7 since her mom had her Army AT. Both boys helped a lot with trying to figure out the problem and cleaning out all the WASTED food! 🙁 Needless to say we ate out a lot but we do more than normal now since this virus has showed it’s ugly face. We do have our old fridge downstairs and the repairman got it to not leak anymore. Yay! But the hubby and son said no way they are hauling it upstairs again! LOL It is heavy and the stairs are not straight up, they are a challenge. We do like having that one down there for drinks and over flow of food. 🙂

We haven’t done anything this summer since the virus. We really missed not being able to see the oldest son and his family in May. He says he may get to come here for Christmas. Cross fingers! 🙂

I hope everyone is healthy! Have a good weekend!
