That stuff about grandmas spoiling kids is true. My nieces, nephews, and son do not experience the same woman I experienced.

Thanks! It was a nice birthday, and I am starting to feel a little better today so hopefully it won't be long. Best of luck on your new challenge, but from what I hear about your gardening skills I bet it doesn't stand a chance : )

Hi Tim,

Thanks for your words of praise.

I have a "real" challenge in my new place, maybe when .....

And a belated Happy 21st Birthday, hope it was great and that you're feeling better!

Hi AbbyRose,

I just wanted to echo your sentiments with regards to your wonderful family. Chris, Joe, and Karina are all amazing people and I feel blessed to have gotten to work with and know them! So all the compliments to you for raising such wonderful children! (And i'm not just saying this because Chris is my boss : )

P.S. Anytime you want a real challenge with your "green thumb" just let me know and you can try your luck at my house :)

She/he sure will. I get to really spoil this baby. You're allowed to with grandkids, we've earned the right :-)

Ok Cyprindon, now you've gone and done it, when I don't get that baby, you'll be hearing from me :-)

And anyway, if the plants "appear" to look better, it's only because they're glad to see Karina's back and will be spending more time with them. The same would hold true for for my Grandbaby, except for the spending more time with - it'll have my undivided attention for as long as they're gone.

Good luck to you and Mary on your gardening. Plant something, watch it grow, and you're hooked, at least I was.

Mary: My plan is to put gardening in my plan some time in the future. It would be cool if you used the SP System to help you become a great gardener and wrote up your experiences here by started a SP Stars thread for yourself.

Oh No Karina! What if you leave the baby with her and when you get the baby back, the baby looks better?

Part of my new plan (making all these lifestyle changes...started with eating better!) is to make myself get out in our yard and putter around. Never been a husband has always handled that, but I find I am kinda getting interested. Mostly I'm weeding, but I like being out in the fresh air. I sit at my computer entirely too much!

I can't compare to ABBYROSE though. When we go out of town and she takes care of our plants, they look BETTER than when we left!

CYPRINODON, you sure can, bet if you look a little closer, you'll see that thumb turning! It just takes a little TLC, with some trial and error mixed in.

Being a "great aunt" 4x has given me a glimpse of what it's like to be a Grandma. They're sooo much fun to be around.

And this baby has to turn into a "Master Gardener". Karina and her Mom have beautiful gardens too!

You inspire me. If you can have a green thumb, then so can I (can't I?).

I always wonder what Grandma-hood will be like. You are about to find out. Wahoo!

Hi, I've been blessed with two awesome sons and a daughter-in-law, Chris, Coach Joe D, and Karina. They are truly amazing and I couldn't be prouder! All of you are testimonials as to how much they're touching people's lives and helping them.

Chris and Karina are also going to make me Grandma for the first time, Wahoo! I'm anxiously awaiting August.

Then there's Abby, my ever faithful and constant companion. She's a Golden Retriever/Irish Setter mix given to me as a Christmas present by Joe when she was 7 weeks old, 8 years ago. That was his sly way of getting the dog he always wanted, but it was love at first sight and don't know what I'd do without her. She's using the SP System to shed the extra pounds she put on a couple years ago from medicines trying to treat her allergies.

We're in my favorite season and the best one for gardening, which is my passion. It's so uplifting to see everything turn green and starting to flower. The most exciting for me is starting something from cuttings. When I moved, Joe had the "pleasure" of uprooting one with an 11 year growth that was a bush over 5 feet tall. Houseplants are also included.

I'm an avid Precious Moments collector and a member of the Club, both since 1986.

Being a flex worker and able to work 80% of the time in my home office is the best.
