Growing up in Burrwood

Ho Hum

Another rainy and disappointing day. Is it too much to ask to have 2 or 3 or so days of sunshine and decent temps in a row? I really am not complaining though as that would take a lot of nerve when you think about what has been going on in other states. So many storms and tornados this year and we’ve already broken the record for the month of April. Needless to say Spring has be a huge bust for the whole country from the sounds of it. It has to get better…doesn’t it?

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! Ours was delightful! All of the kids and grandkids were home and nothing is better then that. Brody was a happy little boy. The Easter Bunny brought him a Trike! He jumped right on it and put his feet on the peddles right away but hasn’t figured out you have to push to get it going. If the weather ever turns decent we’ll get him outside and show him how to do it. When and if that happens I’ll be sure to post pictures.

I bought myself a gift for Easter. Well, not just for myself I guess but for the family. Our microwave wasn’t  heating like it should so when I was shopping the other day they had a good sale on them so I gave up the fight and bought a new one. I hate it when appliances give out! I use to like it because that meant I could get a new one but now I hate it. Who wants to spend money on something that is used just for housework or cooking? Bill decided the other day that we should go to the casino as we haven’t been there in ages and I got a little lucky and won a few hundred (shhh, don’t tell Uncle Sam) so now was as good a time as any to buy and new micro. This one even grills! Neat huh Smile

Well, Brody  just brought me a diaper so he must be trying to tell me something lol. I think it’s time to break out the potty chair. Have a great day now ya hear and don’t forget to…

Live, Love, Laugh & Be Happy!

You haven't forgotten me have you?

I haven't forgotten any of you. It's just that when I sit down to write a blog Brody will get into something and I have to get up to see what he's doing. I swear, I'm up and down a million times a day. I will say one thing, he is learning that no means no. Sometimes you have to be more stubborn then he is but sooner or later he realizes that I'm bigger and stronger then he is lol. He'll be 3 soon so he knows when he's being naughty but like most 2 year olds, they keep trying. His favorite thing is getting into the refrigerator and that drives me bananas. I do try to come around and read your posts. Thank god for Google reader as it lists them all and I can keep up with the news. I don't always leave a comment but I do catch up sooner or later.  Right now I have over 80 to read so please be patient, I'll read them all but will probably only comment on a couple.

Speaking of Brody. He does make me laugh. The other day he crawled up in the computer chair and was typing away on the keyboard. Now he knows he's not suppose to be up there and when he saw me coming after him he right away he asks me for a hug. He knew he was in trouble and I guess he thought that giving me a hug will get him out of trouble. It "almost" worked. It's things like that that brings a smile to your face. Kids are the only people in the world who can do something wrong and still make you smile and laugh at them.

I'm sure Terry's told you about the spaghetti dinner benefit we are putting on for our cousins husband Jimmy. He will be getting a bone marrow transplant in June and they have to stay at the Cancer Treatment of America hospital for 3 months after the transplant and I'm sure that won't be cheap so we are hoping for a big turn out. Jodi orderd bracelets kind of like the ones Lance Armstrong created that says "Live Strong" on them to sell only ours says "You Don't Fight Alone". She sent us a text yesterday that a women she works with gave her $50.00 dollars for one of the bracelets.  We are only asking $2.00 for them so that was wonderful of her to do that. There really are some super duper people in this world isn't there?  Jimmy is a remarkable man. You never hear him complain or ask "why me". He says God will decide what will happen to him and you just have to have faith that what ever that is it's what God wants and he's accepted that. Well, between you and me I hope and pray that God has decided that Jimmy's job isn't done yet and that he has more for him to do.

There must be something wrong with my live writer. I actually did write a blog yesterday with it but it wouldn't post. It just keep saying that it was sending it but it never did and  eventually I gave up and closed it down. I was hoping it would save it as a draft but nope, it vanished and is floating around out there in cyber land somewhere. I might have to uninstall it and download it again. There's always something to fix on these machines isn't there?

Well It's time to get supper going around here so I better trot off to the kitchen. I will be around later, I promise. I have to make sure that you don't forget me you know.

Until then...Live, Love, Laugh and Be Happy!
