Celebrating Women for the Real World

Category Archive

The following is a list of all entries from the Grand Kids category.

Ch, ch, ch, changes!

Yeah, it’s that whole “I hate making up titles” thing.

What do you think of the new look?  Bright and cheery, no?  It reminds me of my weekend.  How?  Well it’s green.  Guacamole is green.  I made a lot of guacamole this weekend.  Too bad the weather didn’t cooperate.  Cold and rainy Saturday, cold and windy Sunday.  About the only thing that got accomplished as far as yard work was fertilizing.  Yes, I seem to provide my neighbors with much comic relief.  Me, the fertilizer spreader, big black clouds, then BAM-the skies opened and we were deluged with rain.  Did this stop me?  Hell to the no!  I was determined to fertilize!  It wasn’t pretty, but it got done.  I sure hope my neighbor doesn’t record any of the daily occurrences at my house.  Me, spreader, rain, running-not pretty!

My daughter and son-in-law came over for dinner yesterday.  We were talking about Easter.  I’m committed to going to my Mother-in-laws every holiday.  She doesn’t cook any more.  Basically, we all cram into a too small house and eat cold food.  But you know, there’s no guarantee as to how long we’ll have her.  She is an awesome lady so full of love.  Anyway, we eat early at her house.  I told the kids I would cook again and they could come over for dinner.  This brought up the convo of the grand baby.  My kids don’t like to go over to grannies because she’s old, it’s crowded, it’s far, it’s early, blah, blah, blah!  This made me wonder if my grandchild is going to feel the same way!  No, there is no way that will happen.  Those babies will be so spoiled every time they come over! (Look at me going plural already!  WTF?)

The way I look at it, grandchildren are your reward for not killing your children.  I will take full advantage of being able to send them home after sugaring them up and letting them do whatever they want!  LOL!  Kidding!  (kind of)


Better Today

I bought a Neti Pot.  I think I may have mentioned that before.  It’s gross but effective.  I don’t have that “crap, this is going to turn into a full blown infection” feeling.  I’m also taking Allegra D.  I’m not sure which is helping the most, but between the two, I should be able to get my drink on this weekend!

Texas weather is so funny.  Last week we were bundling up in coats and scarves for our nightly walk.  This week we were stripping off layers during our walk.  Yesterday it hit 80 degrees and I would guess about 90% humidity.  Gotta love it!

I guess I’ve procrastinated enough.  I just realized we have a little over a month to get our taxes done.  Where did the time go?  This year we may get something back (shhhhh, don’t say that too loud).

While I’m thinking about it, I have a question.  As I’ve mentioned about a gajillion times, I’m going to be a grandmother this summer.  An acquaintance has a full Nursery suite full of furniture that he is selling for $200.  When I say full, I mean, crib, changing table, rocker, dresser, mattress, travel playpen, and stroller with infant seat.  That’s a good deal.  My husband’s response when I said that I needed to clean out Jessica’s room and turn it into a nursery was “a nursery?  We don’t need a nursery.  The baby won’t be here THAT much.”  Today I mentioned it to one of my bosses.  His reaction?  Almost exactly word for word as my husband’s. 

Is it just me?  My theory is, if his daughter comes to visit with her 1.5 year old, she will need to sleep somewhere.  His other daughter has two and is due with the third in May.  If they come to visit, again, the crib will be useful.  Of course I’m going to babysit as much as my daughter will let me.  Again, having a crib will be handy.  Plus, I have two boys who will eventually find good women and will give me many more grand babies (key word – eventually).

Who agrees with me?

Well It’s Been A While, Hasn’t It?

I can’t believe this blog used to get updated daily.  Since it’s not, that means either my life has become very boring, or, I’ve gotten smarter about what and what not to share with the world.  I’d like to believe that everyone who visits and reads this loves me.  I mean really, who wouldn’t?  LOL.  For those that don’t know me, that was my attempt at humor.

Let’s see, since the last update my sister came to visit.  It was a good visit.  It seems that we tolerate each other the older we get, and by older I mean not older but wiser cause really, thirty something isn’t old!  What?  Look, thirty something can mean different things to different people.  I’m about to have my 12th anniversary of my 30th birthday.  Whatever!  Gah!

As I said before, my daughter got married on January 1st.  While my sister was in town we had a wedding “reception” for them.  Good times.  I really love his family.  They are good people. 

My oldest son happened to turn 21 that same weekend.  Where did the time go?  I’m not used to the legality of his drinking. 

My daughter found out she is having a girl.  I didn’t tell you she was pregnant?  Come on, put two and two together people.  It was a surprise, but now that we have seen the ultrasound, heard the heart beat, and know that we are having a girl, I am so completely head over heals ecstatic about it.  My daughter and her husband are looking for a house.  When she told me where they were looking I said “Absolutely not.  My grand baby can not be that far away!”  So it was only 15 minutes.  But 15 MINUTES!  That’s like forever away!

The clock seems to be ticking and that magic hour of “shit, I really need to get to work” is upon me.  Enjoy this update and check back soon!


Grandpa Came Thru

Every time I look at these pictures, these babies seem to get cuter and cuter!  Love them!

Ok, Ok.  No more talk.  I’ll give you what you really want.  Enjoy!

Mommy says Grady is always right by his brother making sure he’s OK.  Look at Grady’s jacket.  It’s got lights.  How cute is that!  Apparently that’s the only way mom could get him to wear the jacket!

That’s the Easter basket Grandpa and I sent.  He LOVED it.  Mommy said he carried it around all the time.  What a cute face!

This one is all boy!  He is going to be such a lady’s man!

Taking care of brother.  Look at those blue eyes and chubby hands.  I just want to suck those fingers! 

He’s just 2 mos old.  Look how long he is.  I can almost smell the baby smell!

Hope you enjoyed!  Have a great weekend!
