My daughter arrived to take back many items that mom is no longer using.
Cleaning closet and umbrella for table, rug for deck, chaise cushion bought
5 years ago (still look like new) but wanted new ones and different color
for son's arrival.
A granddaughter spent day and night with me.
Was surprised as she had just returned from Florida that morning.
A call made to cancel cortisone shot this afternoon
and told the nurse pain had disappeared for 2 days
she replied "you need company more often" and I agree.
My youngest loves her new keyboard and can hardly wait to hear her play.
Her hugs and "grandma I love you" will stay in my heart forever.

A long winter but the sun is shining and now 65 degrees
it is wonderful.

Drove half way to big city for her grandad to return her to the big city.
Why after over 40 years of finally ending this relationship
that I should have done sooner
does he still act uncomfortable around me?  That is alright
as it is his problem.
All I know is that I am thankful for 4 beautiful children
and 5 wonderful grandchildren from this union.

Picked up a plate at Cracker Barrel
to nice to eat inside and sit with the unfriendly one.
Food on my deck at home
was wonderful...
Fish, Cole slaw, turnip greens, corn muffins, ice tea and chocolate cake.
Just finished 1/2 and other half too night.
It was so good and called manager to pass this on
or it may be that I have not had a restaurant meal for over 6 months.
He told me they had not changed their recipe
and agreed it might have been
such a long time since eating their food...

At the moment
Life is so Good
and looking forward to family gathering soon
with the big table laden with food.

Weird aren't they? The Ex I mean. We were married 27 and now divorced 29, but he still holds a grudge I guess.

Glad you had time with your beautiful grand daughter!! Makes us always feel better.

That is your younger one? She is growing so fast. They all do!

I don't feel uncomfortable around my ex but he does, he's always performing around me and never real. Not that he ever was, come to think of it. lol

Gorgeous granddaughter, spring ha sprung in your neck of the woods.
