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 !! :)

We also have ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks


Oh my goodness it's been a couple of days .. :) I love my mother, but she kinda gets overwhelming at times .. lol .. but we had alot of fun, in the end .. :) She can usually walk about 50 feet before having to sit down .. and then sits and apologizes left and right .. I keep telling her that I don't want to hear apologies .. she's 91 years old, and there's nothing to apologize for ... (even though for years, we've tried to get her to take small walks throughout the day .. but she doesn't "like" doing that .. *sigh* ..) but that's what I'm thinking .. not saying, because I'm there for a fun time, and she doesn't need harping .. because she's there for a fun time as well .. so we walk 50 feet, and then sit down .. That's the nice thing about going to the casino .. she can go from one machine to the other, get some movement in between, and I know she's getting some movement .. :) so going is 2fold .. :) but I had a wonderful time in between the mishaps ..

She got up to the room before me on Sunday night ... and when I got up there .. low and behold .. the door was locked .. (with the fliplock) .. so I'm standing out in the hallway at 12:30 and pounding on the door, to try and get mom to wake up .. Thankfully .. her sleeping pill that she took, hadn't taken full effect yet, and she did hear me ..

The concert (98 degrees) was an experience .. We sat in back to protect our ears .. lol lol .. but that may have been a mistake as well ..she didn't enjoy much of the concert, but she stuck it out for me .. :) I enjoy their music .. but I wasn't in "concert mode" .. and well .. forgot .. that once the concert starts .. actually very few people "sit" .. some older people left as well .. guess they weren't accustomed to concert atmosphere as well .. She could NOT understand how nobody would sit down .. everyone stood .. I tried to explain that that was the atmosphere that was the concert .. this wasn't like a symphony concert .. lol . . They had 2 big screens on the sides of the stage, so we could (sometimes) still see what was going on .. and every once in a while, we would giggle .. "well .. our tunnel was blocked" .. lol lol .. but she stuck it out which I was proud of her .. :)

I'm happy to say that I slept well ... but woke up with the side of my face and my eyes were all red .. I believe it was a reaction to something on the sheets .. but I'm happy to say that it was short lived, but got mom concerned .. :) By the time breakfast was over, I had stopped in the restroom, and it wasn't blochy any more .. lol .. and my eyes whitened up .. lol lol lol ..

I'm happy to say that I actually brought money back home this time .. :) We met up at 2:00, and headed for home .. :)

All in all it was a wonderful time .. :) and I enjoyed myself wonderfully .. The ride home, mom was tired, and the closer we got to home, the sillier she got .. I was just tired .. lol lol ..

I was alittle sad, because yesterday was the first time in 41 years that hubby and I were apart on our anniversary, but he did send a happy anniversary text .. :) When we got married; I told him as long as he remembers, I don't want a big fuss; but just wish me a happy anniversary, and move on .. well -- he's been good, (I think he's thankful that I'm not one of the wives that needs a big fuss on their anniversary.... lol) But he comes home today, and from the airport, we're heading to the downtown casino, for "ol'fart lunch".. whoops .. I mean Senior Buffet .. :) (and points .. lol)

As for 41 years.. I still giggle to myself .. At our wedding, I found out that a bunch of our friends were taking bets, on "how long we would last" .. and well ..alot of those friends haven't had the opportunity to collect, and alot of them have been married and divorced, (some a few times) ... so my thought to them is "phhhhttttttt" !!!!!!! lol lol lol I think the lowest was "less than a year" .. *SERIOUSLY !!!!!?????* Double "phhhhhhhtttttttt" .. to them !!!!!! lol lol lol

I left mom, and picked up my "chinese" last night on the way home .. :) I had shrimp and chinese vegetables, and steamed pot stickers .. :) I kinda was full, but at least I didn't feel I had to eat it all .. :) I have some left for a meal .. probably tomorrow .. (since today's big meal will be the buffet !!! :) ) but HE'S COMING HOME TODAY !!!!! (can't tell I'm a bit a twitter .. huh ??? )

I got home last night, and after dinner, I couldn't hold my eyes open anymore .. I was tired, and my brain was playing tricks on me .. I kept seeing things from the corner of my eyes, and hearing thumps and bumps .. and well .. by the time I got upstairs .. I was pretty well spooked .. so the TV stayed on low all night, so I wouldn't hear those thumps and bumps .. and thankfully I slept pretty darn good .. :) When I'm overtired, my brain plays even more games with me than normal .. lol lol and all the noises around the house that are always there, are over emphasized .. and hubby not being home, made it even worse .. soooo the tv stayed on .. hid all the thumps and bumps .. lol ..

This morning I have to fix my suet feeder ..the energy of the starlings; they almost had the cage opened up, and when I went out to close it back up again, I noticed the chain links were pulled open .. I need to go out and close them up again .. (that's my this morning thing to do) .. :) Busy work to waste the time till noon .. After 10 I can see if his flight is on time .. :)

So -- that's been a brush up for my last couple of days .. trying but fun, and well -- tiring .. :)
