Being a grandmother is everything people said it would be. I can’t spoil my grandbaby enough. I get to do all the loving without all the responsibility. It is thee best part of the second chapter of my life.
This summer, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet up with one of my most favorite bloggers (even though he gave up the ghost and no longer blogs) Reggie of Reggie’s Rantings.
This picture was actually our second time meeting. Reg is such an awesome guy. I’m glad that we were able to finally meet and that I can call him a friend. Blogging has introduced me to some pretty amazing people.
NavySeal and I are both back in school. I feel old walking across the campus. Not because I’m surrounded by young folks,but because you have to park your car so darn far away from the buildings that I’m tired before I get there. They need to have geriatric parking on campus.
I am so ready for this cool weather. My electric bill took a huge hit this summer. Summers in the deep south are murder. I don’t think I paid less than $400 a month the entire summer. My electric bill needed a break.
My neighbor’s gardener cut the roots to my morning glories and killed my entire living fence. Rat bastids. It was so pretty…butterflies would visit every morning. Now, I have to start her all over again.
My 92-year-old aunt is in hospice care. My dad had 9 siblings and only my aunt and my dad are left. It saddens me to think that when he crosses over, my family will have lost an entire generation and we will become the elders of the family. I can’t wrap my head around that.
In addition to decorating purses, I also have to decorate coconuts this year. My brother and a few of his friends are riding in Zulu so I have a few hundred (yes, a few hundred…like 900) coconuts to do. This is my first time decorating coconuts.
This year is almost over and I feel as if I’ve gotten nothing accomplished. I’m so ready for 2017.
I’m still a member of the Krewe of Nyx. I think Mardi Gras 2017 will be my last year as a member though. NavySeal and I want to ride in a Krewe together. We’re looking at the Krewe of Orpheus which rolls on Lundi Gras. It will be a totally new experience for me. And I get to ride with NavySeal…which is the best part of all.
Why is 10 lbs so hard to lose? I didn’t realize how much I love to eat til I decided to lose 10 pounds. The struggle is real.
What’s going on with you today?
