Wow, its been awhile!! My last child has graduated from high school! Its amazing to me that all three of my children are now adults.. It is so weird to think I am old enough, to say that! Of course its meg and she is already married too. That is even scarier. Life has been moving along at such a fast past that I just want to yell stop and get off this crazy train. So with meg graduated I find myself wondering if I should start dating? I had decided after my divorce (12 years ago) messing up my children with me dating after getting the divorce was not a good idea and my focus had to be them for the past 12 years. Well, its over and now what? I was posting something for my Nonny (sister) on Craigslist and while waiting for the picture to upload I was giggling and looking at the ads. (there are some really sick people out there) Anyway, there was this one ad that caught my attention, widowed male, blah blah blah. But very sweet. So I actually responded! (I kept it a secret from all) lol We talked on the phone, text and email and then decided to meet for lunch. Standing outside the restaurant, I see him walking up and he goes to hug me (kind of OK?) then grabs my hand so that when we walk in we are actually holding hands. (very weird) lunch was nice and when we go to leave he grabs my hand again and walks me to my car, he goes to what I thought was going to be a hug and instead grabs my face and kisses me on the lips! EEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWW, REALLY??? GROSS!!! (no I did not reciprocate) I was so grossed out that I was speechless! Is this what dating is all about, now? UGH So turned off I told him (by email) that I was going to be really busy for the next few weeks and that was it. Is this what dating is now? I think I will stick with just me and God!! I really don't know how people do it? At 46, have I missed my shot because I blew it the first time?

In need of a vacation

Wow, what a weekend it has been! Woke to water flooding my kitchen at 1am! Nice get up and have to turn off the main water valve just to get it to stop. Thought for sure it was a frozen pipe that burst! Here we go again.... You know not having running water for someone that goes to the bathroom every hour does not bode well.. Sissy and Dad came to the rescue at 9 and found that it was actually a dishwasher issue. Now I have water again and will wash dishes by hand till the part comes! The next day I called my mechanic to tell him I have been adding coolant regularly for the last six weeks and he tells me no big deal and he will look at it when I get back from vacation. Then calls me as I am out running around and has me check the oil to make sure its not "milky", sure enough it is and he tells me to go home and not drive it as I need a new motor! Nice! (but he did offer to buy it from me for 3 or 4 hundred if I decided to get a new one) At this point I am afraid to go to sleep as not sure what will happen next?? I still am dealing with a teenage daughter who wouldnt know the truth if it slapped her in the face! UGH, I need a vacation! Good thing I am leaving in less than 24 hours with my eldest daughter, my sweet son in law and my Nonny! Forget it all for 5 days and pretend all is right with the world! Thank you Jesus for all u do for me! I dont know how people make it through all this life crap without you?

Raising a teenage girl

I cant believe how fast time is going? What is up with that? The holidays are over and I am still dealing with a teenager.. Ugh.. (that explains where I have been)My other kids (29,22) tell me she is being a typical teenager however that is something that to me is still unacceptable. I never went through anything like this, the others never put me through this. I used to believe I had this motherhood thing down pat! Meg though has proven this in fact, to be false! I cant believe how badly I obviously have failed? Was there a single moment where I can say, "this is it" I have failed as a Mother? How could I do it so great with two kids and failed so miserably on the 3rd and final one? I am truly at a loss on this! My heart aches for what is happening and for the child I am losing the battle with. Battle seems harsh but at times that is what it feels like. Where will the money come, for a good shrink? Certainly not from "healthpartners"! Again, ugh!! I tried bringing her to our Pastor (super sweet guy) and she just "snowed" her way through it. Now she is at the point where she says " u have your beliefs and I have mine" ugh! How do u answer that? This is a family that God has proven Himself over and over and yet her rebellion is against us all? How do I help her before its to late, when the insurance that is paid to protect her make it impossible for me to try and do so? What route is left then?? Prayers, prayers and more prayers! So far that is all I have for answers.....

My daughter (17) needs to take the allergy pill "xyzal" for her allergies. She has tried everything else out there and this is the only pill that works for her. (not something I can control) Well, the lovely "Health Partners of Minnesota" Are refusing to honor her insurance after many hoops they sent us through and now tell us that we must pay a 70.00 co-pay per month for the pills?! Wow, this from a company that will give her birth control pills (not something that is necessary for her well being as with Xyzal) for 10.00 co-pay per month?! What is wrong with this picture? They would rather she go to the Doctor every other week with respiratory problems because we can not afford to pay 70.00 per month for allergy pills but go ahead and give her a deal for birth control? What is wrong with our system? Our health care system is so out of control. I wonder if the heads of Health Partners think of my daughter at all when they are out on their fancy boats or vacationing in Europe? My guess is, not even for a second... How sad that we are a Nation that has come to this. Our health care is so out of control and can only get worse. Of course that is only for us "little people" that need it the most and not for the Executives in their big Mansions.. Truly, how sad....

Summer 2010

I cant believe summer is over? I swear it was a blink of an eye and gone. What did I do all summer as I was not blogging?? Well, it started nice and just got hotter here in Minnesota. Hot really is not a word to describe humidity. Humidity is sticky icky muggy gross and we had plenty of it. Enough complaining about the weather. My Jazzy moved out on her own and is now living in St.Cloud, she is due to have a baby in January. I have spent lots of time with her since she moved and it has been a wonderful time. My sweet Niece Angie tried repeatedly to friend me on FB and I kept ignoring her. I am really glad she was persistent because now I have her in my life and her 4 beautiful daughters. We really are a lot alike so much so that its scary and I feel really bad for her. Talk about our upbringings, molding us! It is so wonderful building a beautiful relationship with her. I am truly blessed to have my nieces in my life. My dil Kelsey actually had the summer off from school so she only had to work. What a blessing that was to be able to see her more often and so relaxed. The little brat got herself into shape and boy does she look good. My Pooky bear was home for the summer. First day back he piled all his electronics (flat screen, computer screen, laptop, etc) onto the dining room table and when I balked at him he stated "its just for 90 days" like I was insane.. I love that boy! After I busted her, Meg went with her Dad for 3 weeks and that was a real treat for all of us. She came back with more appreciation for the life we have built. She still has her bf Richard but he moved to St. Cloud so buh bye! Spent many of summer nights in the back yard with Jen, Brian and the boys. Oodles of fun, oh how the 3 of us enjoy each others company on the deck, listening to music with our respective drinks. Add to that my Nonny and it makes for some fun times. We ended up getting a metal frame pool 2 weeks before fall. (I know brian suggested it earlier in the season) We got a couple weeks out of it. Dealing with some medical crap this summer and that has not been fun. On new meds and am trusting it will all work out.. Ended the summer at the State fair with a Mercyme concert, Jeremy Camp was there too and it was wonderful enjoying it with Nonny, Sissy, Meg and Dayja. I really enjoyed walking around the fair, the weather was cold enough that there really was not a lot of people, so it made for an even better time. Thats it! That was my summer in a nut shell! I cant believe I condensed it into this short little blog, but I did! Thank you Jesus for your continued support of me and my family! Without you I am nothing and with you I have it all!

Working out and eating right?

Do you think fat people eventually get so sick of being fat that they do something about it? Do they get so sick of seeing themselves in the mirror that they decide to never eat junk again? Well, being an overweight person I can answer those questions... NOOOOOOOOOOO!! Apparently those things although bothersome dont motivate me enough to get rid of the extra pounds. Keeping that in mind I am giving it one final attempt to eat healthy and workout regularly. I started the eating more healthy about while back but I dont believe you can loss the excess without a workout plan. So 2 weeks ago I began a new workout regimen to go with the eating healthy crap and now will mostly just blog about my progress. So far I feel as though I am an out of shape 100 year old! So sore, its amazing. But I can tell that it is working as I have had a few really good nights sleep. (actually that could be from pure exhaustion?) Its amazing what a drug working out is? Knowing how working out regularly makes me feel why did I ever stop? Why doesnt everybody do it? Its so weird that we do all kinds of bad stuff to ourselves and yet dont do the good? Anyway, heres to progress and getting fit......

Do we actually ever really know someone?

Do we ever really know someone or do we just think we do? Is the only guarantee in life is that by the bible we can truly only know Christ completely? Are we destined for heartbreak by the people in our lives? Family, friends alike? Do they know what a disappointment they are when they do the things they do or is it done without the realization that they are doing it? If it is all they same no matter how long you know someone, then what is the point of meeting new people? At least with my children I know their faults and they know mine so there is not really a whole lot of room for disappointment although it does still rear its ugly head once in awhile. So it brings me back to my original question... Why bother letting someone in if they will just eventually give you heartache and disappointment? Do we create it ourselves because we put someone up to high on the pedestal? So what is the answer than? Don't trust anyone outside of my core 9? Hmmmmmmm.........

Thank you

Do people show appreciation by a simple "Thank you" anymore? I dont think so. I guess though if people dont really appreciate something someone does or says then I guess they have no need to say it. So do people just expect things and no thank you is needed? I mean really saying thank you is so simple. Me personally I send out thank you cards when something means a lot to me. But even thank you cards are no longer really sent by most. But to not even say thank you? Thats just weird to me. I am not really speaking of any one particular scenario, its just something that I have been thinking of. What has happened to common courtesy or a simple thank you? Of course I would not want anyone to say it if they did not mean it, but why wouldn't a person. Has our world become something where appreciation is no longer showed or said? If that is the case how sad is that? Whats next for all of us? That thought scares me!!
And now I would like to thank Sissy for being such an awesome daughter and giving me Brian and my boys! I would like to thank my Pooky bear for being a sweet boy and also for giving me Kelsey. I would like to thank Kelsey for joining our crazy group and for being such an amazing part of our family. I would like to thank Meg for being a sweet (although a bit trying) girl! I would like to thank Dad for his amazing chow mien that he makes and always shares with me.
Thank you Jesus for all of my blessings! Now I must go write a thank you not to a really great hotel I stayed at....

Cancer and my Sister

This year is just not been fun so far and now I find out my Sister Kelly has stage 3 breast cancer. YUCK!! I feel so bad for her and her family. We have never been really close, as she has always been pretty mean to me. However, does any of that really matter anymore when something like this comes up? I dont know the answer and it seems like I don't have the answers to much anymore. Things have been spinning out of control this year and although I guess I am due for some upset it is all getting to me. Then I think of Kelly and I think my issues are so very small. She has also had a tough life. Things that were done to her made her who she is and I feel very bad. She has two daughters and a grandson that really need her. Although, I have not spoken to her in years I did send her an email and lots of continuously praying. I dont know what God wants my role to be in all of this , if anything? I do know that I will leave the door open and will be there if needed. We have such an awesome God and no matter what the outcome He will be praised!!

Best Buy ~ if only they sold groceries

I was thinking today that my life would be even better if Best Buy sold groceries! Really why cant they? It would make my life so much easier. One stop shopping and all that! I ordered a fridge from there last week (thank you appliance rebate) and it got me thinking that if only they sold food then I could have it delivered fully stocked! Heck, I am a reward zone premier silver member and I am given many benefits for it. One being free shipping on anything I order so why not give me food too?? Just sell groceries and I will be happy!! I buy so much from there why not food?? It would really make my life even better!

A night with the Boy...

Another wonderful night with my Boy! At six years old my eldest Grandson is truly a joy to be around. The night started out very nice, just hanging around the house with Uncle Danny and Auntie. Then we decided to go get ice cream from the store. As we were pulling into our parking spot the boy says.. "Grandma the sky is very ominous looking tonight" I am like... What did u say?? He then repeats it and I ask dumbfounded if he even knows what that means?? He then proceeds to tell me exactly what it means. He states we cant see any stars or moon in the sky and to him that makes the sky ominous! Thank you, Thank you!! My Grandson the genius! We get into target and he is back to being a 6 year old and really wants a foam sword that Target has so discreetly as you walk in the door. (call Sissy for permission) Of course I said yes and he gets 1 for himself and 1 for each of his brothers! Such a thoughtful boy! He tells me when we get home he is going to teach uncle Danny how to fight with them! We also got those wonderful punching balloons for each of us. Those balloons are so much fun! Danny and the boy proceed to fight each other for a good 1/2 hour and it was wonderful entertainment as Uncle Danny would cheat and pull the boys shirt over his head but very funny to watch. Then the boy declares its bed time and lets go Grandma! Really boy? Its Friday night and I would like to stay up past 9.... We go to get ready for bed and I tell the boy to cover his eyes so Grandma can change into pajamas's as that is a scarey sight I would not want him to see. He covers them and when I am done he tells me he has seen my penis! I start laughing (something the boy does not find amusing when he is not being funny) I tell him he could not have as I dont have one! Saved by Auntie Kelsey getting off work. (she cant resist playing with any of her nephews) and I got to stay up till 10:30! Woohoo!
And now I must go as I was handed a sword at 7:45 and told I had 4 minutes before he would attack so got to go............

Do we have the right to give forgiveness to anyone? Do we have the right to expect forgiveness from anyone? Those are the questions I have been pondering lately. I have never believed that I am worthy enough to do either for myself or others. But after another person came up to me last week and asked for forgiveness from me I am starting to wonder and yet I still find myself thinking I am just not worthy to give it. Then again why does one ask for it when they have no idea why they are asking? (seems a bit dumb to me) How can someone ask in that situation? Is it not all just up to Christ to give it? How can us sinners have any right to doing it for ourselves or others? Do we ask to ease our own mind or is there something behind it? Again I have NO idea!! There is a sermon on Wednesday night on forgiveness and I will be there as I am hoping the sermon will be able to explain why it is so important to say or hear the words. I have really always believed it is up to Christ to forgive us, not for little old Tammy. I always believed you get through it and move on. I wonder if I will feel the same after church on Wednesday????? Another question..... Will I ever know enough to make me worthy of Heaven?
UPDATE: the cd turned out blank due to a mix up at church, I guess I will just have to try and figure it out on my own?? That could take forever....................................

Predestined for disappointment??

Are some people just predestined for disappointment or do we set ourselves up for it? That is something that I have been questioning for a bit now and at first I just thought that I must be predestined for it, given the mess I came from.. Then I started looking back on my life up until now and I have begun to realize that given my past family situation, I have come to the conclusion that I (all by myself) set ME up for disappointment! I want something so bad that I forget to keep the wall up. So therefor disappointment can come in. I am not talking about the disappointments from our children as that is predestined so very much expected. I did not put other relationships in that catagory even though they to are predestined. So, not realizing that I then set myself up to be crushed by others and all by my doing because I had forgotten that EVERYONE will disappoint you at one time or another. What have I learned? That I am still a child looking for something that no one but Jesus can give me. That my family means everything to me and I wont stand by and let anyone hurt them. That the family I created is mine and we have our ups and downs and those little bumps but they are truly all I need! My eldest and my Bri along with my three beautiful grandsons fill a void in me that cant be described! That my Pooky bear has found a beautiful and highly intelligent young woman to spend the rest of his life with and whom I already feel is my daughter. (cant wait for the granddaughter they will eventually give me, what a beauty she will be) Then there is beautiful Meg... She is a book that continues to be written and I pray God will help us both through these teen years. (she truly can be the sweetest thing there is) So, I have my family the core 9 of us are a match for no one and I am truly blessed to have them all. They are my greatest achievement!! The wall is up and right or wrong I will remember to keep it there!

Orlando 2010

I cant believe I have been home for 2 weeks and just now getting the time to write about my vacation?! Things have been so crazy around here and today I am finally back to a regular schedule. An old client came back and I started a new client and now that it is Monday I think I can finally breathe again.. First day was spent at Seaworld, Meg was a bit nervous thinking of the last time we were there. But all went well and we went to "sharks" restaurant again and although it cost me more than I wanted to spend, the food was fabulous and the time with family irreplaceable. Meg and I saw our first play. I cant believe I had never seen one before? It was really great and I look forward to many more in the future. The ocean was beautiful and Meg did her usual feeding the birds thing that she loves so much. Jen and I were nudging each other the whole time and giggling waiting for them to attack her. Why she loves doing that so much is beyond me but she does and it is fun to watch. I ended up spending more time with family than I had planned but turned it around and had an awesome time. I praise God for such an awesome family and though the core 9 of us were not all there, the ones that were made me realize that the family God created for me is truly the best and we may all have our issues, together we are truly the greatest! Playing in the pool with my boys was truly a joy! Having oodles of fun with Sissy and Brian was a great treat and one we are sure to repeat! My vacation did not go as planned but I learned some valuable and hard lessons and ended it with lots of fun.

I need a vacation........

The new year has not been all that nice so far... I think I was getting a bit to comfortable with life and a few curve balls were needed to show me that I am not in charge? I really detest relinquishing control so I am not sure how I got so comfy to even think I was in control in the first place? Anywho, I have given it back to the one who is always in control and now I need to clean up the mess! Well, actually I already cleaned up the water from the pipe bursting and the rest of that situation I am trying to ignore till spring. (Hey it might work out? You never know??) I also lost 2 clients in the last month and that put a big dent in my spending habits! So, what am I supposed to learn from all this? I dont know? Maybe that I REALLY need a vacation? Then I was at church on Sunday and Pastor Tom asked the question " What testimony of my life, is given to the world?" For whatever reason that question just gets me? I have no answer to that. Pooky bear loaded the New Testament onto my ipod and I began listening to that while at work today, hoping to get an answer and still nothing! Which brings me back to the beginning statement. " I need a vacation"! Its a good thing I am getting one in a couple weeks! Maybe looking out onto the beautiful ocean will help me figure it out? It's one of those questions that must be answered. (at least in my mind) Was his point to drive me crazy trying to figure it out? If so, he succeeded! Job well done, Pastor Tom! Sure glad I am going on Vacation soon....

A week of Birthdays and Edward Cullen

Who needs a man to give her diamonds??? Not me, I have Judy! Yep that's right, Judy sent me a beautiful pair of diamond earrings for my birthday. They truly are gorgeous and I have already worn them 4 times in a week! We had the usual birthday celebration with all my kids and Nonny and the boys. (and her new friend,soon to be old friend) lol I always enjoy Christmas eve because for the last 10 years or so Jen makes sure that it is saved for only me! Good food, great family and fun games made the evening lots of fun. Sissy gave me a life size cardboard cutout of Edward Cullen along with a poster of him. The life size of Edward as been a great source of fun in this house for the past 4 days. Starting with my goofy "adult" kids posing with him and then moving on to scaring me. Danny has taken great pleasure in putting "Edward" in random spots all over the house and laughing each time it never fails to scare me! He always seems to be aware of when I try to do it to him. But that is OK as I know a couple of times his heart must have jumped a little? He really scared Megan as he put it in the bathroom to scare me and Megan found it first. So Meg wakes up and asks who put Edward in the bathroom? I told her she was crazy as I never saw it and the poor girl actually paused thinking she may be a bit loony till Danny told her he had put it there but changed his mind for fear I would have a heart attack in the middle of the night. Such a sweet boy!
I changed Christmas so that it was at Jens house this year so we could have more freedom with the boys. It worked out nicely. I got a beautiful lladro from my dear son in law! He really shocked me with buying it! I also got 2 movies I really wanted and a beautiful scarf. The food this year was famous daves and it was fabulous! I love that we never have a "traditional" meal for Christmas! Pooky came back after a bit and we played dice and really ended the holiday and a wonderful note of laughter and smiles! I truly have a beautiful family!!
My clients this year were unbelievably generous with me. It truly shocked me! All in all a great birthday and a beautiful Christmas! Bring on Florida!!

Time is flying, why not me?

Does everyone think time is flying to fast these days? It sure seems that way? Christmas '09 is almost here and will be gone I am sure by the time I get done writing this? Not a whole lot going on lately. Had my sweet boy over for a sleepover with Grandma again. What joy that boy brings me. There truly are no words in the English language that can accurately describe the pure bliss he brings into my my life! I had forgotten to post what he said to me during our sleepover 2 weeks ago, so here goes. We went to McDonald's and got him a happy meal( nothing for me, go me) The toy that came with it had directions and looked a bit complicated to put together so Nikolas says to me"Grandma I will read you the directions and you put it together" What a sweet 6 year old! So I get all the pieces out and say OK go. He opens the directions and says... "OK grandma, direction number 1... Put.... it....... TOGETHER!" Got it grandma? K, do it! Thanks Nikolas, what a good job reading... Again, he just makes me melt! My business is doing wonderfully, God truly blesses me greatly. My clients have once again been very generous this season. However, time is still flying by so why not me?? Actually, I will be in 38 more days when I leave for Florida to see Judes again! This time though all the grand-kids are coming with along with Sissy and Bri. The plane ride should be fun as the boys have never been on one b/4. They are all staying at a hotel which bodes very well that I am staying at Judy's with Megan. I like quite time when I awake at 5 and they dont know what quite time is! Either way it should be an awesome time and based on how fast time is flying right now the 38 days will be gone very soon!

The things children say...

I had a wonderful Wednesday night with my sweet boy Nikolas having a sleepover with Grandma. Oh what complete joy that boy brings to my life! (they are all wonderful however with him being six its more fun) So the evening starts out with him very seriously telling me that "Mommy and Daddy touched him in the dark and he was scared" knowing them I burst out laughing as I knew there had to be more to the story. Just think about what he said a minute..... Funny stuff! When I was done giggling I asked him why they did that and he told me that they turned off the lights to play and they jumped out and grabbed him and he did not like it cause he got scared. (I am sure that was Jen and Bri's whole point) When I called Jen and accused her of "touching my grandson" (still laughing) she asked if I had set him straight on how to tell the story correctly? Nope, sure didn't. That is not a story to take to school the way he tells it! After a good laugh and a promise to Nikolas that I would talk to Mommy and Daddy about scaring him in the dark our night continued. He really is a joy to be with, except for the fact that he like to go to Grandmas room at 6 to watch a movie all the while insisting.. "come on grandma lets go" It does not help that uncle Danny starts encouraging it a 4:30 as he thinks it is so funny! As we were laying in my bed we started talking about our upcoming trip to Florida and he leans in to whisper in my ear (does not matter that no one else is in the room he still feels the need to whisper it because it is a secret between me and him) He says.. Grandma, I have an idea.. How about me and you stay at Judys house in Florida and Mommy daddy, jack and cooper can stay at the hotel?? Isn't that a great idea, he asks?? lololololol Way to funny that boy is! I hug him and tell him I could keep him with me forever and he tells me he cant stay at my house because I don't have a Daddy and he needs his Daddy! Even a boy of 6 knows the importance of a Daddy! At 5:30 am he wakes up to go to the bathroom and would like to watch transformers again. I ask him to just let grandma sleep a bit longer than he can. At 6:30 he whispers in my ear.. "Grandma lets snuggle" well I am definitely awake now! Snuggle with my favorite 6 year old? I would give up all the sleep I have. Grandchildren are truly the greatest gift one could have! It so beats being a Mom. (sorry kids)

New trainer, New Moon and my Minnesota Vikings

Yep I got me a new trainer. (praise be to Kels for telling me about him) He is young and surely knows what he is doing! I do like him a lot as he has the perpetual smirk on his face that my sweet Pooky bear gets when he is being funny. I worked out with him Friday and Saturday and could barely move on Sunday. Although very funny to see, I was truly sore. When I asked him on Saturday what does it say about him that he loves to torture people for a living? He asked what does it say about me that I pay for it?? I liked him immediately! I have never had a work out where my heart rate stayed up the whole time and I was taught the whys and hows of stretching. (something Kels had shared but I chose not to listen to b/4) I walked on the treadmill after (as Brad did not want me to do it b/4 the session as I had previously because then I would not be as inclined to do our workout) as I was walking (actually dragging my feet) I noticed my shoe was untied and decided I could last the last 5 minutes and tie it when I was done. I get off the treadmill and immediately collapse on the floor! Horrified I look up and see Brad with that smirk on his face telling me safety first as he looks at me tying my shoe. Praise God that it looked as though I tripped over my shoelace and not the real reason which was that my legs had given out and I was not prepared!! Dang funny even now that I am typing it! Anyway, I really like the new trainer. Just wish I could get the money I wasted on the first one back because after what I was taught in just the first two sessions, I know the first was overpaid!
Now on to Twilight :New Moon.... All I can say is... Ahhhhhhhh, Edward! Yes I know I am a complete loser on this subject but I just cant help it! The books are just so flippin good and new moon was wonderful! Anyone that is rooting for Jacob over Edward has not read the books and is dumb! (see I told u "loser") Heck Sissy has not read one book and yet she understands that Bella and Edward are the whole story! I am now counting down to June 30th when the 3rd movie is released... (again, "loser") What a great week! New trainer, New Moon and life just could not get any better. Pooky came home for the weekend and I always enjoy visiting with him. The Vikings won again on Sunday and it was truly an awesome game and although I missed watching it with Brian (as I could not get off the couch) it was nice to watch it with Pooky again! I really see Miami in the Vikings future! End the weekend with an episode of my favorite guilty pleasure (dexter) and what more could one want? Absolutely nothing!

No place for mice to hide

That is right they no longer have a haven for creating large families in my garage! After spending a week with dead mice popping up all over the place in my garage. There is no place for them to hide! I will no longer look like a complete idiot as I run scared screaming for the Drama queens boyfriend to please go pick it up and tie the plastic bag shut tightly? Yes, Richard I must believe that if not tied tightly the mouse may somehow come back to life and get me! Anyway, Sissy and Brian came on Saturday and we cleaned the whole thing!! (it was all I wanted for Christmas as God has already given me all I need and want) We not only cleaned but sissy also put all the crap that I always thought were permanent fixtures in the garage on the free sight and all were gone by Sunday night! Goodbye to that ugly wood burning stove, the old metal desk and that metal cart that was the catch all for junk!! So, 6 construction bags filled with garbage and a load to savers and my garage is awesome!! I cant wait for spring when I can seal the floor and paint the walls! Thank you to Sissy and Brian for my wonderful gift and thank you to the drama queen for watching the boys so it could all be done!! BTW: the drama queen is thrilled as she now does not need to think of anything to get me, nor spend her money.. Not sure how I should take that??
