It's September 1st, 12:27 p.m. and I'm still in my 'jamas, watching T.V., writing my blog, trying to read a book, thinking about a movie later, maybe going to get some Inca nachos for lunch. People, I'm doing pretty good now.
It's been a long time since I've felt like I could just sit around without feeling guilty about the fact that I had a LONG list of to-do's. I still have a lot of to-do's but these do not have an expiration date that is rapidly approaching, and that has someone else's happiness attached to them. ;)
It was a great wedding. All three of them. I'm not quite done. I've still got my niece's wedding in just 26 days (Are you getting excited J.Dean?), but I'm not doing it all by myself. My sister is helping, and really, my niece is pretty organized and has things pretty under control. I just have a few things to get done before then.
I basking in the glow of the leftover Killian Korn. We had a great popcorn favor bar for the wedding and I took home the leftovers. I've got caramel apple on one side, and Sounders colors on the other. It's a good day for snacking.
I appreciate all of my sons and daughters in-laws. They are all great people, who have certainly added a lot of spunk and flavor to our family (no pun intended). I've been pleasantly surprised that as our children have pledged themselves to another person, and created a family of their own, I've always felt like I was gaining something, not losing someone. I'm so grateful for that, since it's always hard to lose something after you've invested a lot of time, money, and patience; especially after 20+ years. ;)
I get to go visit some of those lovelies in just a couple of weeks! I'm headed back to Monterey to see my sweetest, little Scout. And her parents too. I'm pretty excited to see all of them. It's fun to just be the Grammy and sit around and hold baby. It's just about the greatest.
I'm so excited that I'm getting a second one of those soon! Lilly and Breck's baby will be here the first part of December. They are having a girl. I'm so excited to see what this little one will look like. So much anticipation! I'm also excited to have them close for awhile. It's hard not to get to see Scout, and parents, very much. She has changed tremendously in just the 3 months since I was last there!! Yikes!!
Hopefully, I will get so much more posting done now. I do love to blog! But it always seem like I can't take the time I want to do my writing, so I get rushed and it doesn't feel right to me. Does that sound as weird to you, as it does to me? Well, that's what it feels like to me.
Well, the dryer's done. I did feel like I need to get all the laundry (plus bedding) washed, and perhaps get all the dishes washed that we used at the wedding. There is nothing I hate worse than handwashing dishes. So I don't care if it takes me forever, I'll put those suckers in the dishwasher. Idiosyncrasies.
I guess it's time for me to get moving. But not too much moving. It's my last day off for awhile.
