Sitting here on my patio on a warm summer night, listening to my neighbor's radio playing good old down home bluegrass music....makes me a little homesick for the mountains of VA. I'm just an country girl at heart...no matter where I might be living.
So glad to be off for the next nine days! I am muddling through okay on this new job, but the atmosphere there is so depressing. It is hard to be working for the power industry in a coal-fired power plant these days. I think I know how the dinosaurs felt before they became extinct. I know that the world has to change...I just hope it all holds together for the next five years and I can retire and leave it all behind.
On to good thoughts. My kids and grandkids will be here tomorrow night. They will be staying until next Sunday. We don't plan to do a lot except swimming at the local water park and visiting my cousins in Canton, but I am going to enjoy having this apartment full of giggling little girls...and getting lots of Grammy kisses and hugs. My son will have his 29th birthday while they are here, so we will go out and celebrate all together for a change.
For all the trouble they have been in, all the heartache they have caused me, and all the aggravation they have given me...I love my kids to the moon and back....and I love my grandbabies even more.
