What a beautiful day. It's 7:30 and still 55 degrees, much nicer than the minus 2 degrees it was last week. The days are getting longer and it won't be long before spring is actully here. Can't wait. I finished my other shutters, kind of like how they look on the wall. Bought some more to start on so wish me luck.
Spent part of last week in Woodbury with Heather and the girls. Children just amaze me. I know I had 5 of my own but it just seems that the second time around, when you get to actually spend time with the grandchildren it's a whole different feeling. For one thing, you're more patient, another is that everything they say is cute (even if it's not so cute to mom and dad) and the constant questions and search for answers doesn't seem as irritating as it did when it's your own children.
Maybe that's just me but I have a hunch most grandma's feel the same way, either that or I was not a very good mother. But, spending time with them also brings back memories of special times you spent with your own children. The long walks with them, picking up rocks to bring back for our rock garden, throwing rocks into the river and picking wildflowers are just a few of the many outdoor experiences we had.
Living in a very secluded area in eastern South Dakota, the memories of spending time outdoors with my kids are among the best memories I have.
When I got back home Jaden and Logan spent Saturday and Sunday with me. We went to the park cuz when it's nice out grandma just has to be outdoors. Then returned home and watched a movie. This morning Jaden challenged me to a game of playstation football, boy am I bad. Had no idea what I was doing and I apologize to the Packer team for such a poor showing. Guitar hero was next which I am a little bit better at. Of course I was taking the easy route and Jaden tried a little more advanced modes. He still beat me most of the time. All the while Logan, the resident artist was drawing many pictures for everyone.
Watched "The Women" with Heidi in the afternoon, good movie.
And at 3:05 my phone rang and it was work asking if I forgot to come in. Oops, I had signed up for an extra shift but forgot to write it on my calendar. Made the rest of the weekend real short because I worked from 3:30 pm until 9 am the next morning. Then back again at 5 pm until 9 am Tuesday. Guess I'll have most of my hours in for the week by Wednesday. Yeah!!
So that was my week.
Now it's time to read abnormal psychology, will let you know if anything interesting comes out of that reading.
For now, have a great day and hope to be back before the week is up.
by the way.....
what do you think of that by line, used to be my dads, only it was by mrh, always has a special meaning so will probably use it once in awhile.
And Pam if you're reading this, remember I G..A..S love ya
