Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
I am happy because I got some of my "Linda" how to's started yesterday ..I kinda stayed out of the picture yesterday .. and just stayed to myself unless anyone asked questions .. I was also "summoned" over to the office side by the girls .. for my input .. They told me the situation, and I asked them what THEY suggested .. they stated what they would do, and I said .... do it .. :) They actually came up with the same solution that I would have .. but they also have to make the same mistakes I have while I was learning .. so I have made suggestions to pull them out of trouble, because "I'm" still a side effect if they make the wrong decision .. lol lol .. so I try and give my opinion without 100% influencing their decision .. Make sense .. ??? well -- it's as much sense as I can seem to make lately .. lol lol lol ..
I did get to my nail place, and got myself shortened (needed), and a soft pink .. I love them !!!! and it feels good not to have to use my knuckles or not to hit the keys in the rows above ... they were long, and so long they were becoming cumbersome .. They feel good and clean again .. :) I love that fresh feeling .. !!! :) They were busy when I went, but not as bad as they were on Friday .. :)
I got home last night and hubby's friend was there .. Kit took hubby out for his birthday lunch .. They went and used hubby's birthday burger at Red Robin .. and then instead of sitting at a bar and having a beer, they decided to come home, play some Wii golf, and have a beer here .. so they played 2 rounds of that .. Kit is hubby's childhood friend, and was our best man .. He was leaving just as I was coming home, and they saw me coming, so decided to come back in the house to say hi and bye to me .. he gave me such a big hug . :) He lives out in AZ .. and comes into town a number of times a year for medical help .. at the Mayo clinic in MN .. It was so nice to see him again . This is a man that almost passed on about 10 years ago .. and has bounced back ..thankfully !!! but is now a guinea pig because by all rights he is supposed to be gone but isn't, and what he has is rare; and he doesn't mind it, because he gets his medical testing for no charge because he's in this program .. and he feels wonderful !!!
I think we're going to be gramma and grampa's !!!!! We have a herd of deer that pretty much hang out in our back 40 .. 4 of them .. They came through and I think a couple are going to pop .. There's one in the group that I won't be surprised if it isn't multiple birth .. she is BIG!!! They hung around the back yard, and it was sooo cool !!!!
Today Linda is off, so Kim will be on her own .. I'm going to leave her on her own as much as possible .. this is the first time since Linda's vacation .. where I still stepped in .. today I'm just stepping in .. :) only when needed ...
I took the leap of faith yesterday .. and sent an email to my SIL for mom's birthday .. and hubby's suggestion .. and it sounded like Kathy was game ...
Bill had suggested that we take mom to the Dells that day .. and it threw me for a loop because Bill and Kathy are not "free" with the money .. but Bill's response was "we'll do it" .. Well -- after talking with hubby; he came up with a better idea ..
Instead of going to the Dells which is a 2-2 1/2 hour drive one way; I would take mom to Madison .. (only 45 minutes to 1 hour drive) .. and hubby would meet up with Bill and Kathy giving mom and I about a 1/2 -1 hour start; at mom's .. and take them up to Madison ..
We would all meet there, hubby would go to the counter, and get Bill and Kathy a card which will give them I think a $10 free money . This casino has alot of machines with 10-50 cent minimum spinning .. Mom will have been able to play for a little bit .
Hubby would leave because he has his dartball on Tuesdays .. and we would stay there for another hour or 2 .. (plus the hour drive home .. not taking my normal scenic route) and I would text hubby that we were on our way .. and he would go and get some KFC and meet us at mom's house to finish up with a family dinner .. :)
Kathy was good with that .. and I know Bill will be better .. I told them .. 1-Dejope was much less intimidating for newbies .. 2-Dejope was much easier to find someone in .. 3-Dells is very hard to find anyone in .. Hubby is usually at the blackjack tables .. so he's easy to find, but to find someone amongst the machines is almost impossible .. 4-Dells is pretty much .. you get there, and may not see the other person/people until a specific time .. 5-Mom is not one for the buffet .. So this plan I think would work better .. plus the fact of 5 of us driving together for 2 - 2 1/2 hours .. I would be comfortable, and mom would be comfy .. because we would be in the front seat .. but the back seat would be pretty tight .. so .. I like hubby's idea .. and I think that's the direction we are going to go ..
Since mom isn't an early morning riser .. this whole scenerio can start at around 9ish .. so we would get back home around 3ish ..
and hubby is happy because he doesn't have to go to a restaurant that he doesn't have a coupon for to eat .. lol lol lol ..
It's my happy hubby's birthday today !!!! I hope he has a happy one !!!!
With that being said .. I wish everyone a warm and happy day !!! I'm going to try !!!! :)
