9 years ago today, hubby move into Heaven leaving DJ to care for me.
DJ was hubby's care giver puppy from the time we got him. He was 3 months old when we got him, now he is 11.
After hubby started getting sick, DJ was at his side almost constantly--even laying outside the bathroom door waiting for him to come out.
Now DJ is very possessive of me..........lol
But he still is my baby...

Tuesday, we had a family gathering at daughter Valerie's house. There were 17 of us there. We did Tuesday because that was the day everyone had off---very hard to get a day like that anymore with so many working and such different schedules..
We had turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, fruit salad, green bean casserole, and mixed veggies. I don't care for stuffing so that wasn't an issue for me and i didn't put gravy on my potatoes and I can't eat much ham so that wasn't a problem either. We aren't a dessert family so there wasn't any there unless you count the fruit salad.
Today I was invited next door to daughter Tammy's for dinner/lunch. We had turkey,mashed potatoes, stuffing, baked beans, fruit salad and rolls. I had a small amount of gravy on my potatoes this time. I had fruit salad and a roll along with my turkey. I brought some turkey home and practically scarfed it down. Generally I don't eat that much turkey at a time but must have had a protein low because I sure did wolf that turkey down---it was white meat. So I did overeat on white meat turkey....lol

The turkey shot out of the oven
and rocketed into the air;
It knocked every plate off the table
and partly demolished a chair.
It ricocheted into a corner
and burst with a deafening boom;
Then splattered all over the kitchen,
completely obscuring the room.
It stuck to the walls and the windows,
it totally coated the floor;
There was turkey attached to the ceiling
where there'd never been turkey before.
It blanketed every appliance,
it smeared every saucer and bowl;
There wasn't a way I could stop it---
that turkey was out of control!
I scraped and I scrubbed with displeasure,
and thought with chagrin as I mopped
That I'd never again stuff a turkey
with popcorn that hadn't been popped.

This has been one of the most nerve wracking days I've had lately. All morning at least one (sometimes both) babies were crying and/or screaming. And oh my gosh---the noise...just loud,loud,loud....I'm not real happy having them here but there is no other choice right now.
It is cold, grey, and gloomy outside too...I will be so glad when they can get into their own place and I get my house back...I can't even go into the kitchen without one of them running out to see what I am doing , If I fix something to eat, someone is right there with "are you finished with that?' or "what are you making it smells so good?".
Thursday I no more than walked in the door when I was asked, "Can we scarf that now? It smelled so good"
I am just tired of someone being here all the time. I very seldom get any quiet time anymore. Now it's toys going off....just noise, noise, noise and yelling, yelling, yelling....not all bad yelling---just loud talking and the little one screeching most of the time....they don't use any soft tones...just loud loud loud....
Sorry but I am trying real hard not to lash out because they really aren't doing any thing wrong...it's my frame of mind today...gloom gloom gloom...SADS is very bad today....
I think a nap is in store and then maybe my frame of mind will improve....tune in later for the next episode...lol
MY BLESSINGS TODAY ARE;
1. God still loves me and I love Him
2. My family is close to me
3. I have shelter, clothing, and plenty (sometimes too much) to eat
4. I am in a position to help my granddaughter and her family even though right now I am frustrated with them---not angry at them just frustrated
5. my laundry is almost finished for this week......lol
6. I don't have to deal with sn** today..
