I thought it was going to be a much nicer day today..Right now it's 52 degrees, which is a good thing..but it is a dreary day..No sunshine:(

I never got around to getting my sewing machine out yesterday..
I did get a lot accomplished though.. I have vertical blinds on all of my windows..For some reason, I couldn't get them off the track to clean them..so I got out the step stool and cleaned them hanging..
I also took down the sheers and top panel and washed them..
So far today, I've done two loads of laundry and hung up the sheers..Still have to do the top panel..
I have lost all ambition..lol...I think I got up to early..

Jeremy went to a couple of the restaurants that are within walking distance and re-applied for cook or dishwasher positions..One place said they might be needing someone part time soon..that would be awesome for him..
He also stopped by his grandpa's shop to say hi..His dad was there.
He told him that a friend of his was going to be opening one of the restaurants that has been closed for a year or so..and that he would talk to him about keeping Jeremy in mind for work..
I hope something comes thru for him..He needs to be out in the work world..
I still think he needs to go back to school for something..Even with his disability he has to be able to live on his own at some point..I also need to get him driving this summer..

He is my work in progress..lol..

Well, time to get my windows finished...
Hope everyone has a great day!!

I always seem to put off  getting a post entered..lol..because I'm busy reading blogs..lol..

I wish I could go on vacation somewhere warm with miles of sand.
Oh, to dream:)

It's warmer here today..63..but still feels a little chilly because of the breeze..Although I'll take this over the rainy cold or the snow for sure...lol..

As of yesterday I have taken on an extra job..It's with my regular job, but in a different capacity..I am on call from Friday night at 8:00pm to Sunday at 8:00pm..
If they have any maintenance issues they will call me..lol..Now I know that I'm not very well versed in the maintenance department but they don't usually have too many issues..and if it's something I can't handle then I will call Larry ( our maintenance guy)..
Larry is on call 24/7 and he is getting burned out..He never has any time for himself or family..lol..I told him that I could relate and that was the reason for my leaving my last job..
Now he will get every other week-end off:)

Hopefully it will help both of us..

Next week-end I'm going to have the 3 younger kids over so we can celebrate baby Laylanas' first birthday..I'm going to make her a pink cake..and I picked up some streamers..and princess plates at the dollar store..Can't wait. I will definitely take pictures:)

I picked up 3 solar lights from Walmart today..I'm going to put them between the bushes in front of my window to brighten things up at night..I hope they work..

I need to get out my sewing machine and see if I can figure out how to work it..lol...I want to make some baby burp clothes and maybe some receiving blankets..I'm making them for "future" great grandbabies..lol...crazy right? Well, I figure you never know what the future is and I want them to have something that was made just for them..
On that note, I am ending this post so I can get off of my butt and get that sewing machine out..lol..

Have a great week-end...

I need help here..lol..
I have been hearing that as of July 1st..blogger is changing how you read blogs...Well, I am afraid that I will be lost out in cyber space..So, I'm asking you all to leave me your e-mail addresses so I can find you..

I'm not sure how it all works..Will blogger just stop working? If we need to change to something else, How do we do it? 

If you have any answers to the change, please let me know:)

It's Sunday evening and I am tuckered out..

Yesterday my grandson Paris and I made a trip up to the Dells..and then we went past my grandmas' farm..The people there saw us on the road taking pictures..lol..Then one of them got in there car..I thought they were going to come and see what we were doing but they just moved it to a different spot in the yard..I took one more picture and then we got out of there..
The house is sooooo bad I don't even know how it is still standing..and yet, these people drive brand new cars.. Unbelievable....

I'll try to post some pictures..

We went to Parker lake where we had placed some of my Moms ashes..then we went to the cemetery..

We took down the old flowers. Before Memorial Day, we will go back up there with the new flowers..

We went back to the Dells and walked around for a bit before heading over to the hotel..
I have to say, I was not impressed with the hotel. It was a travelodge..    We just hung out for the night. I  did go swimming for a little bit and then got in my jammies, played on the computer a bit and was sleeping before ten..lol..

I think we got back home about 1:30..I took a shower, got in my jammies and haven't really done much since..(I did empty out my suitcase and put everything away..Yay me...lol..

Work has been going well...I'm actually helping the maintenance guy with the cleaning of the air conditioners in the other building. When I get my own stuff done of course..it helps break up my day..

Guess that's it for news..Believe me, I don't do much..lol...

 My grandmas' farm..
 Paris - We always go to the school in the town where my Mom grew up..
 Yes, I go on the swings too..lol..
     Paris happy to finally be at our hotel:)

I received a text from my former step-daughter..She said she was sorry for keeping the kids from me and for involving me in an argument that I had nothing to with.
That was a few days ago..We have since sent a few more text and I am going to pick up Cameron and Destiny tomorrow...I am so excited to see them. Camerons 10th birthday was March 6th and I missed it due to her immaturity..
I'll probably take him to the store and let him pick something out.
I still have the card I had gotten for him:)

It's going to be a long day..In the morning, I am going to go see Joyce Meyer. She is so inspiring..I'm really looking forward to seeing her..I am taking a large pad of paper with me..The last time I saw her, I didn't realize that I would want to write so many things down..lol..Tomorrow I will be well prepared..lol..

I'm actually going to meet one of the girls from work there..Seems kind of weird..but I'm trying to be adventurous..lol..

On that note, I better get moving her and get prepared for the morning..
Hope everyone has a wonderful week-end..I know I'm going too:)

Rain, Rain and MORE Rain!!!


That is what we've been having all week and it looks like it is going to continue for most of April...Not a very comforting thought but the bright side is that it ISN'T snow...lol...

I can't remember if I mentioned that I quit my night job..it was just too much for me..I didn't mind it being 4 hours after working 7 but there was just to much floor mopping..ugh.. that broke my back..I am going to start looking for a different part time job..but decided to wait a couple of weeks:)

I have passed my 90 day probationary period at my day job..I still haven't had my 90 day review..I'm hoping that I will get a raise..
My boss is on vacation this week..she's in Mexico...Maybe she'll give me my review when she gets back..Hopefully:)

I heard from my step-daughter..She sent me a text saying how sorry she was from keeping the kids from me...and asking if we could talk..I sent her a text back saying thank you for the apology and asking her when it would be a good time to get together to talk..I haven't heard back from her...THAT is very frustrating..she doesn't have much going in the common sense department..I do not like the sitting around and waiting game..
I miss the kids and would love to resume my relationship with them. So, with that in mind, I will send her one more text and if I don't hear from her then it's on her and I will be done with trying...

Tomorrow, Joyce Meyer will be in town..I plan on going on Saturday..it's at 10am..I am excited that she is going to be here in town...

I changed my cable and internet provider...Yay...With the promotion package, I am only paying 85.00 a month..With my old provider I was paying 189.00 a month..I could not afford that anymore...So far, I'm very happy with the change and in some ways it's been much better than I thought...

On that note, I guess I'll close for now..I hope everyone is having a great week:)

FYI: I am trying to figure out what the problem is..I don't know where the problem started so it's hard to figure out how to fix it..
This is driving me crazy..lol...
