TGIF......

I always look forward to the week-ends..as most people do..
Lol..its seems funny now, because it wasn't that long ago that I didn't get a reprieve from work even on the week-ends..lol..
I am totally enjoying it now:)

I wanted to get back in the routine of getting one of my little grandkids on the week-end..so I sent a text message to my step-daughter Melissa a message on Wednesday asking if Mason would be able to spend Saturday night with me.
By Thursday, I still hadn't received an answer so I sent her a message via facebook...Still haven't heard back from her..
I don't get it..I have tried for so long to get close to her.Even as far back as when her father and I were together. She just won't allow it to happen..I have faced that, but that doesn't mean that you can't be polite.
She never replied to me when I asked if Mason could go to the Dells with us..
I sent her a text last week asking for ideas for Christmas. She did answer that one...
I just don't get it..I may never get it..I could have worked on getting one of the other kids this week-end if she had answered my text..Oh well, there isn't anything I can do about it right now..It is what it is and I can't change this one:)

I'm going to my daughters house tomorrow to pack up the things left over from the rummage sale..Then we're going to pack away all of the camping equipment.It shouldn't take us too long..

Last night I changed my living room around..I was tired when I was done, but it looks nice..and now I have a place to put my Christmas tree:) Trying to plan ahead here..lol..that time is going to come REAL fast..

I'm thinking about getting the paint to do the living room..I may even start it this week-end..

Well, guess that's it for news here in Germantown...
Hope everyone has a nice week-end:)

9-11-01


It's been an emotional day for me..I've been taken back to what I was feeling ten years ago when I heard of the first plane hitting the tower...
It seemed like such a horrific accident...and then to see the second hit and we KNEW it was not an accident..All I could do was stand in front of the tv and say "Oh my God"..

Now today, watching the people read off the names of the loved ones lost, I find myself once again feeling so many of the same feelings..
Seeing some of the young kids is the hardest..one little girl said she never got to meet her Dad because she was in her Mommies tummy when it happened..Seeing so many last names that are the same and knowing that there are families out there that lost more than one loved one that day..

I think they have done a beautiful job with the memorial site...

I did see one thing that bothered me..(and maybe it shouldn't have) There was a woman holding an American flag and a Mexican flag together...it didn't make sense to me..this memorial isn't about what your heritage is or was..The United States of America had been attacked..THAT is the only flag that should have been held on this day..(just my opinion,,and I don't mean to offend anyone)...

God Bless America and prayers to all of the families!!

I've been busy getting things around the house straightened up...Mostly the file cabinet and closets..
I had paperwork in every drawer you could think of..A lot of times I run into problems because I need to find a place for just ONE piece of paper..lol..not sure what to do with it, so I stick it in a drawer..lol..
I have vowed not to do that any more:) I cleaned out the file cabinet and set it up with more hanging folders..One will hold miscellaneous items..
I was able to free up one drawer in my dresser..Of course, that is already being used for clothes..as it should be..lol..

Tomorrow we are celebrating my girlfriends birthday..at her house..with her husband being in charge of the grill..I made brownies today, and baked beans..tomorrow morning I will put together the veggie tray..
I used one of those magic brownie trays...OMG..that was a royal pain..it will go into the rummage pile after today..Definitely not worth the trouble to use..

Tonight I am going to watch Big Brother and go to sleep early..tomorrow, I'm going to just relax and enjoy the company of good friends..

Wishing you all a relaxing extended week-end...

It's been a long week!!

I'm so glad that the week-end is here..."And" it a three day week-end at that:)
It's been a long week of training people, covering for people that don't have any work ethic, getting keys back from people that no longer work for us...

The good news is that for most of the week, I have been home by 10pm..(I only had one night that I didn't get home until midnight)..
I can deal with most anything if I am able to sleep thru the night...it has been a slice of heaven...lol...

My daughter and I had our rummage sale last week..and we made $200.00..Trust me, I did not think we would do that well...We're going to have it again..not sure if we will bother this week-end..a lot of people head out of town..we'll see how we feel in the morning..It has given me incentive to go thru more around here and get rid of things that are not being used..less clutter is always a good thing...

I have a TON of paper work to go thru..all of the miscellaneous items that you cant throw out but aren't sure where to store it..I'll have to organize my file cabinet..I dread this job..paperwork always seems so darned overwhelming to me..Although I do like it when I can actually find what I'm looking for..More incentive to get it done:)

Guess that's it for now..I'm tired and I think I'll go watch tv in my room..

Have a happy and safe Labor Day Week-end!!
