Faith in Man

I was off work this past weekend and it was busy, busy, busy. Then upon returning to work yesterday, I found that it was a total madhouse. Seven families to serve! It is working out, though, as it always does. We had two funerals today and another visitation tonight, but then we had another death call this afternoon. It is strange how this funeral business seems to ebb and flow. One week we are too busy to catch our collective breaths and the next week all is quiet. Well, God calls us at his will, not ours. The picture below was a local pastor of a Christian church here in western Kentucky. I just thought it humorous to catch him working in the back of his van while waiting in the parking lot for his wife during a visitation last night. My daughter and her family are enjoying spring break this week and are in Gatlinburg, TN. I spoke to her tonight and they are, indeed, enjoying themselves. I will get photos next week, I'm sure and can't help but share a few here.
On to more serious things, as I have been having serious thoughts these past few days. It seems I never learn about the frailty of man and the human nature in us all. I continue, after all these 55 years, to trust and believe. I have such faith in people that I now know my name suits me. I am truly a "pollyanna". If I could only learn that people are human and will never live up to MY expectations of them, them maybe I would stop being so disappointed in them. But wouldn't that just make me a "Scrooge"? The problem is not the behavior of others, it's the expectations I have of them.
People can hurt you and never know it. People can hurt you purposely. It can be a one-time thing or it can last for years. Sometimes you know it and are able to accept it but sometimes it is something you never even know about until it has reached a magnificent stage. Then the soul-searching begins and you know that as a Christian, you must forgive them, even if they don't seek forgiveness and only intend to justify their actions. I have certainly been praying that I can be a more forgiving person. I only want to be as good as God expects me to be. Now THAT'S a pretty lofty goal.
I feel a little better after writing about this. I continue to hope and to pray.

Sunday Bits and Pieces

Friday was the last time this year for Tristin to wrestle and believe it or not, I had not been able to see him at all. Since I was finally off when he was wrestling, off I went. He has been sick this week with an earache and is on antibiotics and ear drops but wanted to try nevertheless. The picture above is how he REALLY felt. I don't care how old and big he thinks he is, he is still my "baby". I hate to see him cry. His ear was hurting and the headgear was bothering it.
Mom's lap always makes everything feel better, though.

Since the State Meet was over for the year (and we KNOW who the Ky. State Wrestling Champion is this year) his coach wanted him to wrestle one class UP. He wrestled with a 7 year old who was much bigger and still came in second. I was so proud of him. I still get a little nervous when I watch fearing he will get hurt. I guess that's just natural, though.
I didn't go anywhere yesterday but got lots of laundry caught up and Mother and Belle came over for a few hours. I enjoyed the time with them and it was a good break for me.
I have spent most of the weekend creating and compiling an "Employee Manual" for my work. It is neither easy nor fun, but at least I have the peace and quiet to do it here. It is almost always a zoo at work. The phone is ringing or people are stopping in my office at all times so there is absolutely NO privacy there.
I did get to church this morning and it always makes me feel better after I have gone. Back home and back to work. Late in the afternoon a friend of mine, Florence and her daughter Annie came and hot-tubbed it for a while. We had a good visit. In an earlier post, I mentioned Flo's Mother who is very ill. She is still in the hospital in ICU but is much better and off the ventilator. Thank you all for your prayers for her.

Annie is just a doll and I am always glad when she comes over. She has a way of making me feel younger.
Today is drawing to a close and I still have not typed the now-hated employee manual. My printer ran out of ink, I went to change the cartridge and the new one is one digit off and of course, does not fit. I have some of this on a jump drive at work and left it at work. I now have found a NEW jump drive here at home and will just start typing it all over again, I guess. AARGH! I think I will be glad when this day is done.

Hospice Banquet

Tonight was the annual Hospice Banquet and, as our Funeral Home is a corporate sponsor, we had a table to fill! We all had a really nice time but as usual, in our business, our table fails to be full due to unexpected issues. One of my employees, Jimmy, got ill and had to leave early today so he and his wife were not able to be there. Then, Ken and Florence of course couldn't come due to his mother-in-law's serious illness. She is still on a ventilator and things are not looking very promising for her. I remain prayerful for them all and ask that you remember them, too.
I love this picture of Harold and Gwen taken tonight while sharing a laugh at something the speaker said. I took all these pictures with my i-phone and they turned out pretty good (for a phone).

Of course, there was a plea for donations and a basket on each table with contribution envelopes at the ready. Hospice performs such a needed and valuable service not only in our small community, but in many just like it scattered all over the U.S. I heard many stories tonight from the nurses, a volunteer and even a family member whom Hospice had served. We laughed and we cried, enjoyed a good meal and were reminded once again how fragile life is and how much we all need to help each other. I am fortunate to live in a community where such an organization is available to help in a time of need.

Wet Wednesday

Today I had to make another trip to South Central Kentucky in the driving rain for a personal matter. I did get to see my oldest granddaughter without her braces. She sure has some sharp-looking retainers (they have a zebra print) but believe it or not, she wouldn't let me take a picture of them. This is a picture of Florence and Ken who are very good friends of mine. Florence's mother is very ill and in the Intensive Care Unit at our local hospital. I'm not sure what happened since this happened today while I was gone, but I do know that it is very serious and I am praying for all of them. I firmly believe in the power of prayer and ask that my blogging friends who pray would remember them and their family tonight.
I try very hard NOT to write about politics or religion, but tonight I will put a slight bend in the road. As most of you know, I am a staunch Republican. I am also a big fan of Glenn Beck. Hence, during the 5 hours in the car today I listened to his radio broadcast. Agree with him or disagree, his show is almost always humorous and offers a lot of insight into the political goings-on. It seems Mr. Beck is highly irritated by the use of President Obama's tele-prompter. I listened intently to all the folks calling in to the program and agreeing that Mr. Obama does not seem sincere without it, that what he says "off the cuff" is almost always a polar opposite to his tele-prompted speeches, he never looks at the camera, etc. You get the message.
For some strange reason that I am about to explain, this does NOT bother ME. I would just think that by using the tele-prompter, he is saying things that he has had time to think about and hone to his liking. I understand he is still campaigning, just for something different now. And he is still speaking like he IS campaigning. Now WHY, as a serious Republican, does that NOT bother me?

Spring and Kitties

Oh, I do love the spring! Without a doubt summer will follow. I hope it will be a long one! These blooms are NOT from my yard (not time yet) but from a friends yard in south Florida. Sent just to make me jealous, no doubt.
No, no, these are not MY babies, but some I had a year ago. Aren't they adorable? It seems that it doesn't matter what I do, I just CANNOT keep a cat. So I thought I would try two at a time. No luck. They always run away or are kidnapped by cat thieves.

But hope "springs" eternal, and through a blogging friend that I haven't met yet, I will try yet again to keep a cat or two. Her cat is expecting a litter and I have an offer. I am so excited! Keep your fingers crossed for me. I REALLY want a cat that will stay with me.

Old Polly Pictures

Took Mom to church tonight. I know, I know, it's Monday, but our church started revival last night and I was taking call so we couldn't go. I have many obligations this week so it looks like tonight and tomorrow night are IT. She is disappointed but they are obligations I can't seem to wiggle out of.
Since we went to church I didn't have much to write about tonight (unless some of you are Missionary Baptist and like to hear the sermon) so I dug out some old pictures of me. This might not be a good thing. This is a picture of my older brother and best friend all through life Rodney and me. I can hardly believe he hugged me! This is NOT a common thing for him to do. He is more of the pushing away kind of guy. He lives in southern Illinois now and has for the past several years and I don't get to see him much anymore. For some weird reason he thinks it is more important to make a living than to run back and forth to see his sister. I don't get that?
Now this is a picture of me when I was probably 17 years old. No, I never had the acne problem but I was never a raving beauty, either. I just like this picture because it's black and white and the fact that I can hardly remember being this young.

I remember THIS picture very well. I was about 35 and even though the hair looks "funny" today, it didn't look too bad that day. I think women are their most beautiful between the ages of 32-37.......course I could just be saying that about me.

And THIS is one of my favorite pictures of me with my Mom. I was actually living in Key West at the time and totally miserable in my life. She was, like all Moms, always there whenever she could be, to lift me up and make me feel secure in her love and protection for me. Of course, she still loves me, but Alzheimer's is stealing her away and now I am HER protector.

And this is my favorite picture of me with both my Mom and Dad. It was just a good day. We were at a family reunion in Nortonville, KY and I did NOT want to be there. They were so happy with each other back then. I still miss my Dad. I missed him growing up and I miss him now. The difference is that growing up there was always the hope that he would come back (and he did) but now I know he is with God and I won't see him in this place again. I will go to him.

Weekend Bits and Pieces

Spring is surely here! As I was taking my walk earlier in the week (and yes, I take my camera with me) I thought it interesting? amazing? that I saw this copy of the Ten Commandments stuck in a flower bed right in someone's front yard..... Yay! My yard finally got mowed Friday, I think. I haven't been home one day or one night this entire past week so when I DO get here, I am usually surprised. I didn't even get my mail out of the box 3 or 4 days. If I don't sit down and pay bills I may lose some power, and it won't be due to the weather, either. Oops!
I did make it to a Republican Womans Club meeting one night this past week. The picture above is of Sandy, who is current President of the club. I always enjoy getting together with them and catching up on the "hot topics" in our community politically and also in our country. This time it was our local library and the possibility of a new tax to support it. No comment.

And I just thought this picture of the old fireplace at the funeral home in Crofton is so beautiful. It has a nice mantel, too. I'm sure there's a lot of history and a lot of stories that thing could tell. If only fireplaces could talk.
I am filing my taxes tomorrow and have not begun to gather the necessary paperwork. BUT it is only midnight and I don't have to get up until 6 tomorrow morning, so I have lots of time. HELP....

Road Warrior

Today was just such a busy day at work. Busy, busy, busy. But with my job there is a high degree of confidentiality so I won't go into detail except to say I did meet with a family this afternoon, ordered a vault, worked with a monument company about a marker for a family, reordered a casket, called my insurance man and had a GREAT lunch at the local mexican place.
By 4:00 when I had to pick Mother up for her Dr.'s appointment, I was only about half finished with what needed to be done, but off I go anyway. It is not easy to re-schedule an appointment with this particular Dr. She is not ready and not waiting so I had to park the car and go find her.
While waiting in the reception area I got a text message from my daughter telling me she had taken my oldest granddaughter to the Dr. (in a town 2 hours away from me) with severe abdominal pain of unknown origin. Severe enough that the Dr. was sending her somewhere ELSE for an ultrasound.
Unbeknownst to me at the time (since I was here with Mother) the Dr. called her while she was enroute for the ultrasound saying he had changed his mind about that and thought she should just go directly to the Emergency Room.
By the time I got Mother back to my house and returned her latest call, things were going from bad to worse. They had started an I.V. for her and even given her morphine. That must have been SOME pain.
A joint decision was made by Mother and me that I may as well get in the car and move on since I would be no good to anyone here. I packed enough clothes for 3 days, maintenance drugs and cosmetics and swung by work to complete enough work for someone to take over in the event I didn't return.After 2 hours of hard driving I arrived at the hospital in time to find out that my sweet 14 year old girl had PASSED A KIDNEY STONE! I never dreamed 14 year olds even GOT kidney stones. The CT scan showed an extremely enlarged ureter and no stone but the Dr. says a stone passing is about the only thing he'd ever seen to cause that.
Her pain subsided but we don't know if it was due to morphine or due to the stone being OUT but they finally released her with pain meds.
She is on her way home to her bed, her Mom will go to work tomorrow and I travelled 2 MORE hours back in this direction.
But my heart is full, my extreme anxiety is now eased and I am glad I made the trip.
Thank you God (again!)
And once again, my cup runneth over........

March 2009 Bunco Night!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all! We had a great time tonight at our monthly bunco game and thought I would post a few pictures to share the fun! Our "hostess" was Gwen who went WAY out of her way to find lots of goodies for us. She had a huge salad bar prepared and Irish potatoes. No green beer! But yes, homemade cupcakes for dessert.
For the un-initiated, bunco is a game played with dice. No money is bet, but in our club each of us pay $10. a month to play and we use that money to purchase prizes with. It's fast, it's loud, but mostly just an excuse to get out with the girls and have some fun.

If any of you want to start your own, just email me and I'll be glad to help with details.

Lots of food, lots of dice rolling going on, plenty of noise and laughter and a drab Tuesday night was transformed in to another memory.

SOME things about getting older are not so bad!

To Lexington and Back

My daughter April has a great sister-in-law named Jo who happened to WIN tickets to see Disney on Ice in Lexington for last night. She wasn't able to go herself so passed the tickets on to my daughter. April's husband Bruce just returned from a week's fishing trip in Alabama and claimed to be too tird to go, so I got the invitation! (He really wanted to go to a friend's house and watch Louisville win the Big East tournament.)
It was a rainy, dreary 2 1/2 hour drive to the little town where I met up with April and the children. Everybody was hungry but decided to wait until we got to Lexington to eat since we had to keep an eye on the clock and weren't sure how long the drive was. Tom-Tom is not ALWAYS a reliable old fella.

Tristin really thinks he looks pretty cool with his hat on backwards but the truth is, he said he just didn't feel like "fixing" his hair yesterday. Man, that kid cracks me up sometimes. Thank goodness his rash caused from the reaction to his medication has finally cleared up. He lost a tooth one day last week but the new one is already bigger than the baby tooth was so he had to show me which one is was.

The show itself was a regular Disney extravaganza and was fabulous in every way. We all loved watching the skaters with their spectacular routines. I was shocked (and I don't know why) at how obscenely expensive everything was. Of course I was prepared, but I was still shocked. Popcorn was $15. (it had gold crown attached to it), snow cones were $10 (in a commemorative mug), the program was $15.......you get the gist of it. Ridiculous but grandmothers have well-known reputations for being suckers.

My Kristin girl even had a good time. She is growing up so fast! Her braces come off TOMORROW after more than 2 years and she is ready. She has an appointment when she leaves the orthodontist's office to go straight to her hygienist and have them cleaned. She has promised to send pictures and I can hardly wait.
The drive home last night was long and hard. Arrival was after 2:00 a.m. and I absolutely slept right through church time. Guilt about missing church does exist, but forgiveness stands ready.
Tomorrow is another Monday and the beginning of a LONG work schedule. But God is good and I have the health to do it. I am lucky to have a job and health insurance to go along with it.
Thankful for my family and all my blessings is what I feel tonight.
Until next time.....

Mystified and Concerned

Of all the things I do on a semi-regular basis, going to Wal-Mart is at the top of the "things I hate to do" list. But it was time, Mother needed too many things that would dictate going all over town for.
I needed a few groceries so while we were there, took my own cart and decided to stock up. Amidst the screaming babies and generally disgruntled population of shoppers, I managed to dissassociate myself from my surroundings and get the job done.
Being known for having panic attacks in that madness, I find this is the way for me to cope with it. BUT comparing prices of various things and making decisions about store brand vs. Wally brand gave me great pause.
HOW DO PEOPLE DO THIS? People who have children and a budget, people who are out of work and drawing unemployment to survive? People with a houseful to feed?
My great grand total came to almost $300. and I feed no one but myself. I don't cook a lot, trust me. These were staples for my kitchen and a few, very few, extra things thrown in.
One more thing to worry about. The economy cannot continue in this way. My own children must struggle to find money for groceries with creative mealtimes and still pay mortgages and utilities.
One more thing, yesterday was Friday the 13th and I had a humorous moment in the pasta aisle. I was trying to get a couple of cans of generic something and every time I picked up a can (from the top) two more fell in the floor. There was a couple deep in conversation a few feet away from me and they stopped in mid-sentence and finally were laughing out loud. I finally put down my purse (a no-no in Wal-Mart) and sat down on the floor to TRY to get this display back to its original form. The mystery finally subsided, as did the laughter of the 3 of us, and the cans were ALL where they should be. I blamed it all on the superstition of the day....

Too Much!

My niece Bunny LIKES this picture of me with double chin intact writing away but I think its' one of the worst ever made.
Anyway, I've been thinking today that sometimes life just seems like it's "too much" for me. I live alone and cannot for the life of me manage to keep up with everything. I truly don't remember how I did it when my children were small and there must have been many more things to keep up with.
There's work. Keeping up there okay. It is actually my weekend off so that is a good thing.
The house. There is always something needing to be done. Many things, actually. Right now there are dishes in the sink and laundry to be ironed. A couple of loads to wash.
The phone is still working even though I guess I would much rather blog than turn around to the desk behind me and write a check. How hard is that? Anyway, the money is there, the simple task is just not yet done.
I still need to get the Mardi Gras wreath off the front door and dig out one for spring. The yard is a total wreck. The iris' are coming up quickly and that bed is screaming for my attention.
Mom needs to go to the Wal-Mart. The dog needs to go to the groomer.
My brother Wayne and his wife need me to drive up to northern Indiana one weekend that I'm off to help plan our trip to Europe next month.
I STILL have not seen the famous 6 year old 2009 Kentucky State Champion wrestler in a meet this year (and there are only two left)!
There seems to be a meeting or some even that I need to attend almost every weeknight. (Even though I do manage to skip out on some of them.)
The invitations I ordered for Mom's 80th birthday event are LATE so getting them out will be late. I should already have mailed the "Save the Date" cards.
It sounds like I am whining (for which I am well known) but I just don't seem to be managing my time well at ALL lately. What is that about?
Then there are those things that I just WANT to do. I want to strip the wallpaper off the main bathroom and paint it. It is so dark and drab. This paper was in that room when I bought this house 8 years ago. I want to really spring clean this year, not just make a pass at it.
I want to lose 20 pounds but I LOVE to eat. Worse than that, I LOVE my own cooking!
Okay, I need to take a time management class or something, but I just don't have time!

Slush for Brains

!cid_A27B10E3-3CF3-4DF5-9155-00960526D06D Been thinking a little today about marriage and my utter failure(s) at that highly overrated institution.  Well okay, I've been to church tonight and got a good dose of scripture referring to the aforementioned.

Once upon a time, I married a great guy and had two wonderful children.  But as time passed, he began to change and I began to change, only not in the same direction.  Our eventual divorce changed not only our lives, but the lives of our children.  If I had it to do over again, I would have stayed in that disaster at least until the children were grown, maybe even always, just for them.  The divorce was still the right thing for us personally, but not for them.  There are sacrifices, and then there are sacrifices.

Then when I was in my mid-30's, I married a man that my family disliked immediately upon introduction.  I never knew why (and still don't) but I was madly in love.  It was a difficult time period (seven years) but I did love him deeply.  He eventually moved on to someone he thought he loved more and that was EXTREMELY hard for me to swallow and get through to the other side.

The other side being where I am now.  I am divorced and have been since he left.  12 years now, I think.  I have finally figured out who I really am and what makes me happy.  My family, my church, my friends and sometimes even my job.  But most of all I figured out that I don't need someone ELSE to make me happy.  I can be happy within myself.  Besides that, I have gotten comfortable with ME and I am no longer willing to adapt to someone else's little peculiarities.

Back to church tonight and scripture.....I made a LOT of mistakes along the way and all kidding aside, marriage is to be sacred and honored between two people who make a life together.  I'm just not willing to risk the hurt again.....

Hope Springs Eternal

Leaving work early today to go to the Dentist for a follow-up following "The Extraction" gave me an opportunity to go for my walk earlier in the day and truly enjoy this teaser Spring day. I took my camera with me to record some of the early signs of spring around our neighborhood. This picture below is one of my tulips pushing through the earth and reaching for some sun. I wonder what color it will prove to be?

I also understand from the weather reports that these cloudy skies I see in this picture are bringing behind them a cold front and that tomorrow will be totally unlike today was, of course. The poor tree suffered a lot of damage from the ice storm but I had a friend with a chain saw who came and took care of the worst of it not long after the storm and the rest will just wait.

After my walk and starting to prepare dinner tonight, I decided to catch up on my blogging friends and thus begins tonight's story.
Long before I ever started to write a blog, I used to read a lot of them. If you are a reader you know how one leads to another and then another. Through that venue, I started following the story of a couple from Nashville with four children who were going through the process of adopting a gorgeous little girl from Ethiopia. http://weloveourlucy.blogspot.com/

Kristi is a faithful blogger and I soon became wrapped up in the comings and goings of the Johnson home and her daily walk with Christ, her family and their efforts to "Bring Lucy Home". After MANY months of red tape and the almost unbearable wait, she got a call today saying their baby's biological mother had returned and changed her mind. She has taken her baby back home with her. I feel so many conflicting emotions on this night. Great aching sadness for Kristi and her family. They had come to love a child they had never held. They have her pictures everywhere, though. Most assuredly stamped on their hearts. I have cried for them tonight.

But there is surely great joy in this mother's home tonight as she is reunited with a daughter she could not bear to part with in the end. It is always right for a parent and child to be together bound by an unspeakable love.

I know there will be another baby for Kristi, but I also know she was in love with THIS baby. This baby who was already a part of her family.

I have not yet met Kristi in person, even though there is an event to which I have been invited that I eagerly anticipate. You see, I already care about her and I haven't even met her yet. I wish I could ease her pain somehow on this night and give her the grace and great parenting skills to help explain this new turn of events to her children in a way that might help them grow and learn.
Kristi is a young woman of strong faith with an abiding sense of family. Her circle of friends is never-ending. She has unfailing energy and a husband she must have created just for her. I am selfish in that reading her blog strengthens me in my faith, at times makes me laugh out loud, but tonight made me cry.

I am praying for the Johnson family tonight.....and for Lucy Lane.

Another Excuse to Party

It seems as I get older I find a need to create fun, it doesn't just "happen" to me anymore. Of course there is always a good friend's birthday or a holiday coming up so that has proven not to be a difficult task.
Last night was no exception. My friend Gail was celebrating a birthday which just happened to fall on a Saturday. GREAT excuse to gather with friends for a good time, plenty of food and drink and just general fun. There's that word again.
Frank and Gwen perusing the menu at Dot's
Several of her friends (me being among them and the designated photographer of the group) gathered together at a local restaurant in the bar upstairs to surprise her. Her poor husband Mike had driven all over town and done everything in his power to delay their arrival so as to give all of us time to get there. He was so funny. She was getting really ticked off and was READY to eat by the time HE made the restaurant decision.
Mike and Gail arriving
Of course she truly WAS shocked and surprised as you can see by the look on her face. It is just so much fun doing things like this.

This is a Family Picture of Mike, Gail and their adopted son Frank

A few of Gail's friends looking really Happy????

Sam Leonard

Another reason we chose to go where we did was because Sam, in the picture above, was scheduled to play in the bar last night. I had hired Sam to sing at my Mardi Gras party this year and everybody really liked him. He's an aspiring musician and on his way up so I try to support him every way I can. He's on facebook if anyone's interested.
She got lots of nice gifts, everybody ate too much and some drank a little :) Proving once again that birthdays can be fun at any age and we don't even need clowns and ponies anymore.
Happy Birthday Gail!

Kentucky Youth Wrestling State Champion

I said in a previous post in February that I would keep you updated on my grandson Tristin and his wrestling achievements this season and WOW, this is one proud Mimi! He competed this morning in Louisville and actually WON the championship for the State for 6 year old wrestlers.
It was my weekend to work so I didn't get to go (of course) but I was cheering pretty loud from here. It is so bittersweet being a grandmother.
I love them so hard but don't get to be with them as much as I want. I have to work much more than I want to and it steals so much precious time.
He is the sweetest boy I know and he is my heart. I'm just glad all his competitors don't know how precious he is! They think he's "tough" (okay, I guess he is). But he can sure melt my heart in a hurry when he wraps those little arms around my neck.
My cup runneth over.

Beautiful March Weather

April and Tristin

Kristin and her cousin Austin

5 inches and still coming down!

Today was such a gorgeous day in Kentucky! I didn't have time to look at a thermometer today but I know it must have been close to 70 degrees outside! But lest we forget, I have posted some photos from this time LAST year! Wow, it could surely happen again. They say if you don't like the weather in Kentucky, just hang around a few minutes, it will change. So today I am thankful for the weather and just praying it lasts a while.
Of course, I was at work today and didn't get home until dark from Mother's. I had planned to go to the Home Show at 5 for a "Business After Hours" but was still too tied up at work to get away. I love the Home Shows for all the great ideas I get for fixing up things around the house that I can't afford to do. Well, maybe next year!
As I was coming home from Mom's this evening I happened to notice this flashing message in my car. Heck, I've been driving around Hopkinsville with no GAS! I know I was on fumes when I finally got to the pump tonight. I absolutely just forget to look. How embarrassing that would be! I am old enough to pay attention to those things but I just FORGET!
Okay, gas in the car now and I finally got the mail out of the box. Sometimes I don't do that for a few days unless I am looking for money. Heck, all that's in there is junk and bills so what's the hurry I say???
At least it is on my desk now and I usually roll over to that desk once a week whether I want to or not. (Not today)
Okay, I know I am rambling but I am hungry and trying to avoid the chocolate eggs I bought. Why did I buy chocolate eggs? Because Easter is coming? Well, okay. Easter can come but no other PEOPLE are going to be here. hmmmm, guess I will be forced to eat them.
But I am good. I will wait until AFTER Easter.
