My birthday selfie!
I’m enjoying a quiet day at home. I read a bit this morning. I enjoyed a glass of Pepsi, but thinking about getting a fountain pop. And maybe a cookie, yea.
The oldest son and I were going to go to a movie but saw they don’t offer early times in winter. Darn it. So thinking cheap night movie with all three boys but can we decide on a movie. I’ll get back to you on that one.

Unfortunately, hubby and daughter can not be here but maybe see them this weekend. Yay! Hubby for sure as long as the winter storms do not prevent that. Life of a trucker.

Enjoying all the happy birthdays on social medias. It makes it not so lonely. I sure miss my grandparents and my dad today. Grandma always made birthdays special. One of these days I hope to spend it with my mom. I didn’t grow up with her but we are OK. I’m not sad about it anymore. I understand better as an adult. And also miss my Aunt Mary’s homemade cakes. Yum.

I do so enjoy spending it with my kids and hubby when we can.

Happy birthday to anyone who has the same birthday!

June 22

Question? What’s the last movie you saw in a theater?

2012

None.

2013

Dang, I must have been really boycotting the theater, none again.

2014

Yay, a movie! Just last night hubby and I went to see A Million Ways to Die in the West. Funny but very adult humor. Good date with the hubby.

Question? When was the last time you cried?

2012

This week, my dad died from cancer. I had not seen him since 2009. My hubby and daughter are deployed so I am really alone for a shoulder to cry on. My younger boys are here but they didn’t really know him that well. He was a grandpa and dad that popped in usually around the holidays or when he needed a place to stay. I sure miss him though.

2013

I assume no crying! 🙂

2014

Heck, I cry all the time. Dang hormones. My eyes even water when I laugh. 🙂 Otherwise, nothing bad has happened in awhile. Thank goodness. 🙂

 

June 24

Question? What’s your next social engagement?

2012

I have no social life.

2013

Still no social life. But that is ok. I have my kids and hubby.

2014

Does meeting with the realtor count as a social thing? LOL If so, that is next Tuesday. I am excited to look at houses. We need more space.

June 25

Question? Who is your closest companion?

2012

The cats right now until the hubby is home from being deployed. LOL. Boys are usually hanging with their friends which is good. No close friend or family. I am a hermit so to speak. Just me and my books. 🙂

2013

Maybe I was enjoying a companion and forgot to write. 🙂

2014

I would say the cats. They are always wanting my attention. Hubby is on the road and not home much. Boys stay busy with friends and games.

June 26

Question? What’s your biggest indulgence?

2012

Pepsi everyday! I love books and computer stuff. I love art supplies. I’m a sucker for art supplies. 🙂

2013

Must have been busy indulging. 🙂

2014

Food! I love food! Eating out is our entertainment. Next would be books and art stuff. I am cutting back on Pepsi but do enjoy it. 🙂

Pizza Hut with the boys this month. Pepperoni is our favorite. 🙂

2013

I was busy eating pizza. 🙂

2014

Last Saturday night. It is usually a weekly thing. I eat hamburger so Jessup can have his favorite. The others eat pepperoni. 🙂

Mostly sunny with a bit of clouds because hubby is on the road currently.

 

Journal Sept 26-Oct 2

Sept. 26

Question? Today was amusing because____

2012

Kids are funny. They make me laugh.

2013

The cats were being goofy. They were chasing each other and running into things. Lazy was pushing things off the end table. They are definitely entertaining and can put a smile on my face.

Sept. 27

Question? Do you handle rejection well?

2012

I am getting better at it. I get teary eyed mostly and then depressed. I don’t throw a fit or anything.

2013

I do for the most part. I try to not set myself up for rejection. I tend to tread the waters gently. 🙂

Sept. 28

Question? How hungry are you right now?

2012

A little.

2013

Starving but don’t know what I want to eat. Although a steak would be great! If I could have it grilled and a baked potato too! Oh, and don’t forget a piece of chocolate cake! 🙂 Yep, I’m hungry.

Sept 29

Question? Bad news: Sugarcoated or straight-up?

2012

Straight-up. Might as well get it over with.

2013

Always straight-up. Sugarcoating just makes it worse when the whole news is told eventually.

Sept. 30
