Rest in Peace Aunt Dot

Image
My Aunt Dot passed away this morning. My cousin said she was with her and that she went peacefully to which we are thankful for. My cousins doctor made her go home last night and she called me worried that her mom might pass when she's not there and she said she'll feel so guilty if that happens. I told her that if her mom goes during the night it's because it's what she chose to do but that I really feel that she will wait for her, I'm so glad I was right. Micky took care of her mom for many years and I knew Aunt Dot wouldn't go without Micky being by her side.
Let me tell you a llittle about Aunt Dot. She loved life. She loved playing Bingo, she loved the Packers and she loved to dance. She loved Hank Williams and she loved polka music. Whenever we were anywhere there was music and they played polka's she'd drag me out on the dance floor to dance with her. The Hot Shodish (sp) was her favorite dance and I was one of the few who could keep up with her. …

A battle of wills

Between me & Brody yesterday. He was bound and determined to get into everything he knows he shouldn’t. And believe me, he knows! He was climbing on top of the end tables, he kept opening the glass doors of my TV stand to get at the knick knacks and remotes I have in there. I’d tell him no and take him away from there and he’d turn right around and go back. I bet we did this for at least a half hour or so. He’d get mad and cry then go right back again. I guess he thought grandma would give up but he doesn’t know grandma’s a expert and has done this before lol. Finally he gave up and crawled on my lap, laid his head on my shoulder and fell asleep. This time grandma wore him out instead of the other way around lol.  There’s truth to the saying “terrible two’s”That was quite a busy day yesterday weather wise wasn’t it. Records were broken all over the country. We hit the lowest barometric pressure on record from what I hear. It’s still windy today but no storm warnings that I know of…

I really like Google Reader

I just realized that it shows me when you guys update. Isn’t that peachy! I see I have 9 in there so I better get hopping. It’s sort of like our home page on spaces huh.I’m feeling really bad for Bill. His leg and back are really bothering him and his MRI appoitment isn’t for 2 weeks yet. They haven’t set up therapy yet either like they said they were going too. I think that might help him once he gets into it. Maybe he should try a chiro.I laughed so hard at Brody yesterday when I had him. I was in the living room and he was in the dining room playing with his toys when he came in and gave me a funny look. He then pulls down his trousers and starts to take off his diaper. I grabbed him up right away and it’s a darn good thing I did or I would have had quite the mess on the floor. Might be time to start potty training him don’t you think? He is only two and usually too young to potty train but it’s obvious he doesn’t like messy pants. We have Dish Network and I was looking on their we…

Hello, My name is Sherry and I am a slacker :)

Is there a 12 step program for slacker's lol? If so I need one. Every day I think I need to take the time and jot down what I’ve been up to, but that’s just the problem. I haven’t been up too much of anything. I know I don’t have to be doing anything that is is exciting to tell you about, just checking in is good enough right? You’d think now that I don’t have to share puters that I’d be more diligent wouldn’t you? Oh well. I have no excuse other then being lazy. Hubby has to have a MRI as soon as the doc sets it up. He’s having pain that runs from his hip down his leg so they suspect a pinched nerve. Not sure what they do with a pinched nerve but I hope surgery isn’t in the plans. That scares me when they start messing with your back. Williams here for the weekend and it’s great having him here again. It’s been awhile since he’s called to come down and even though I understand it now that he’s 18 an almost a man but it’s nice knowing he still wants to spend time with g…

learning the ropes

Been playing around in blogger to see what’s there. I realized that on your profile page it shows those who have updated their blogs so that’s kind of like the home page spaces had. I did change the design too, the other one was too hard to read. I’m trying live write again (it didn’t work yesterday) Keep your fingers crossed that it works today. I like having all the options that live writer has compared to just what they have on the blogger edit page. Love having font choices that live writer has.I’m sitting here holding my breath that the Packers can hold on to their lead. It’s a close one, 28 – 26 right now with only 6 minutes left of the game and Detroit has the ball. Hold’em Pack, Hold’em!We had to puppy sit this weekend. My son and his family were going down to Chicago to his BIL’s for a euchre tournament so he called and asked if I wanted to watch our grand-dog lol. He’s a bed hog I’ll tell ya lol.We had to turn the heat on last night darn it. It got down to 36 but it’s still …

Well Now I have more blogs then I ever thought I would

And it's going to take some getting use too.  I transferred my msn space to word press but I'm not impressed with that site. Since most of you moved here I'm moving in too so move over, Now I just have to remember how to get around here. Cindy's been here awhile so if I have any questions I'll just ask the expert. I wonder why msn gave up on spaces? It seems most everyone has been there as long as I have and that's 5 years. After all these years why did they decide to just throw us away like that. Isn't that just about the rudest thing you ever ever heard of? I wonder if blogger works with live writer. I hope so, I love live writer. Ok, I'm going to post this and see how it looks. Let me know what you think.
