Saturday, August 24, 2013

Well I'm heading out for my walk before it starts getting hot outside.

The start of the weekend, I finally have nothing going on...I don't think. It's a beautiful day outside, cool so far, the breeze at least, but this next week is to be in the 90's, and no pool...ARRRGGHHHHH! Oh well, I'll survive, I may go back to doing exercises in the house.

I'll talk you later, have a great day! emoticon

Gator

Friday, August 23, 2013

It's actually quite nice out, not humid, which is what I expected after the rains yesterday. I wasn't sure about walking my entire body felt so weak and tired when I got up this morning and my blood sugar wasn't low at all, I was actually surprised, but once I went for my walk, I felt a lot better. Maybe that's what I needed.

Getting groceries later on today, we have our daughters dog this weekend, she's going up for a truck pull her boyfriend is in, so that should be a great time, we love having him around, afterall he'd lived with us since he was a baby. He's now 4 years old, hard to believe he's grown up so much. He's so adorable. Gator is hilarious at times, and behaves so well. Unfortunately his Father died when he was 4 of Cancer, but the one who gave his Dad to our daughter told her to come and get one of his offspring, so she picked out Gator. She named him Rennugade aka Gator (the first part backwards for his dad's name, Gunner, and I'd said, well call him Gator, because of taking the last part, Gade and just adding a r, but spelling it Gator). It's funny because as he got older, he does this thing where he snaps his teeth together, like a gator bite. He doesn't actually bite anyone, he's just playing, and it's so funny. We never knew he'd actually do a "gator bite action" when he was named Gator and it's so perfect. He does it on command, too, and he was never trained to do it. He is so adorable, full blooded Golden Retriever.

I don't think she'll ever get anything but Goldens from now on, they're so laid back and the perfect dog, so kind, loving, and gentle. I've never seen a dog like them.

Anyway, here's a few pics of him through the years, that's all for now, I hope you all have a wonderful day, and weekend!

Happy Anniversary to my Husband, Rick

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Yesterday was my Husband and mine 31st Anniversary. I couldn't imagine spending my life with anyone else. We've been together 36 years, and I've never been happier. Thank you, Rick, for completing my life, for our 2 wonderful children, and for being there beside me every step of the way. I loved you then, I love you now, and I'll love you forever.

We went out to eat at a place we'd gone since one of our first dates and every year after that, for the past 36 years; Cozy Inn, a Chinese place. They have the most delicious beef chow mein/chop suey, and I think we've had that every year! Our kids usually go with us, but this year our daughter wasn't able to (I didn't know until the last minute, so wasn't able to let her know). The only down side was we never got a card from the kids. Now I'm the type who would rather get a card than anything else, I save the cards and look at them over the years.

I was really upset when my husband didn't get me one for our 25th...to me that was a special anniversary, and I really wanted one...but I guess I'll live through it. Anyway, life goes on, we had a wonderful time going out to eat with Scott. You know, I wish I looked like I did when we married, maybe someday, right?

Have a great day, everyone!

Finally, a name!

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Well, my nephew and his gf finally chose a name for their new son....Wyatt Lydel. This name is special because my cousin, Lydel, passed away in a truck accident a few years ago, so to name their son after him is very special. Lydel was only 27 when he died. They had named their first son Remington Edward, after my Dad, Edward, who passed away last year. He was my Dad's first Great-grandchild, and at least he got to see him before he passed away. Remington was born exactly a month after my Dad's birthday (11-28-Dad's bday; 12-28 Remingtons).

I wish my Dad could have lived to see his second great-grandchild, but I know he sees him. I know my cousin, who's son he's named after, will be excited to hear the name. I may get upset at my nephew sometimes, but there are times like this he does make me proud.

I hope you all have a wonderful day, I'm going to.

This is Remington Edward and Wyatt Lydel in their first picture together.

Doing great

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Went to the doc yesterday, and just before she came in to see me, she had to leave and deliver a baby. It was kind of funny because my nephew and his girlfriend are due any time and so I asked if it was them. But no, it wasn't; however when I got home, I was talking to our daughter and she said she'd talked to her aunt (my sister, the soon to be grandmother) and she had said that Talon (the mother) was in labor. She had an "at home water birth", (well at her parents), I know they were having a boy, but as for a name, I have no idea. Their first son is Remington, so it's hard to tell.

The Doc said everything looks great, the meeting last night for the playground went wonderfully, but we need to redo the playground because of deterioration...after 20 years it's lasted pretty good, however.

So a great day all around, I hope you all have one too! emoticon
