..heehee....grinchiness.....

Yes, PMS...maybe that's my problem lately? I cannot tell you what it's been like to live with me the last 3 days! And seriously, after getting hit nearly 4x the last 2 days because people aren't paying attention to the road finally sent me over the edge.. crazy making, cut a *B*, kinda over the edge!

I hope that foot gets to feeling better...make sure you see the doc if it doesn't let up. I'm sorry you missed the party, but something tells me you were better off not going.. BTDT!!!

Oh Thanks D~ Yeah, I missed the party on purpose. I didn't feel like I had complete control over my tongue...and it was sharp.

Maybe serving isn't for me anymore, I know I shouldn't make snap judgements...I'm glad I don't have to go back for awhile.

Just checking in...my toss and turn night is catching up with me...I could snooze right now. The G-girls are here watching a movie. They have karate at 4:30...While they're gone I'll wrap the Birthday Dress for the Birthday Girl and set out the cake and candles, make dinner and be ready when they come back here to eat. I do feel very sleepy....and lucky.

Hope you and the GG(s) have a lovely Bday celebration. How nice that you're feeling lucky. That's one of those purely contented moments.

Come on over girls, all of you!! I'll feed you and let you watch movies!!

The celebration was really good. We had bean & cheese burritos and carrot cake. Hailey LOVED her dress, When she opened it she looked at me kinda puzzled and I said.. "for your dance on Friday..." her eyes got really big and she said "oh my gosh! Thank you Gram"! Her sister (almost 8) folded her arms and said "I didn't get a dress"...the concept of 'it's not your birthday' is hard to explain to the younger sibling. I always give the girls a small gift on the other's birthday. Started when they were really little and now it's tradition. Madison got a Hello Kitty wristlet purse. Loved it. I love being a Gram and we got out CD's of Hailey's first day in the world...it was really fun to see us all ten years ago...I had brown hair, so did DH (he's a silver haired devil now)...and he had a mustache. My DD the "Mommy" hasn't changed at all. Good times. Of course I went to bed too late...again.

Today is a DD and it's raining. I love the rain. I have the lights on the tree going, I have the tiny chihuahua again today and I'm probably going to bake cookies or something. I seem to have an over abundance of peanut butter so that's going to be the project...if I don't go back to bed. DH had to be up at 4 today....

Thank you all for the nice complements!

Aw, it sounds like a lovely day! The little ones always want what the older ones have....and now, that there is only 1 "baby", the other 2 want as much as she gets

We're supposed to get rain tonight, I hope it shows up! Enjoy the baking, sounds cozy

I've been sooooo sleepy the last couple days, it's been unreal. So not like me, DH thinks it's PMS but then, he blames everything on that

Watching movies sounds nice too

Yeah...watching a nice loooong movie...with my eyes closed...

I think being tired is a sign of sensory overload...too much, too many, too little money...all of the above. In another time, I would eat myself into a COMA...those days are gone. I can no longer abuse myself in that way, I know too much. So I'll drink lots of water today and try to stay occupied, if not busy.

Yes, that's what I was thinking when you said a movie....pictured me here with my eyes closed and the tv going and going....

I dunno what my problem is, but man, around 7pm and I am ready to hit the sack, it's nuts. I'm more of a morning person, but I have always been able to stay up late too...Hope it's nothing major..

I'm thankful that this year is different in the food department...I don't think I could take overload anymore...ugh, just thinking about it makes my tummy flip-flop...

Abusing ourselves is a habit tough to break! You are making huge strides.

Sounds like the granddaughter loved everything! YOU are AWESOME!

Saturday DD..emphasis on down.

So now that we've fired the cable company and have no television (except netflix) and DH has decided he wants to try his hand at 'making' his own didgital antenna to capture local stations and I spent an hour in Costco this morning...steaming over the homemade antenna...I feel like...something not good. Do I mind if he makes and antenna? No. Then what? The 'what' is...I want it now and while you are 'making an antenna...who is putting up the Christmas lights...don't look at me, I can't get on a ladder I fall of the first rung. and maybe we won't have any this year..

to be continued

Sorry the holidays are getting to you Blonde!

I think I would be annoyed as well. There's so much to do this time of year, and putzing around on a project like that...hmmmm. Too bad he couldn't have had that all figured out before you cancelled your cable.

I hope you get a good night's sleep tonight and wake up feeling better.

Whoa! So now he wants to find some tv from somewhere, eh? Did he get the antenna to work? Did the lights get hung? Did you tie him up with them and put him on the roof?

Hoping and praying today is a much better day for you!

Exactly! The holidays are fine, my husband is making me bonkers....I did sleep well, barely moved all night and no booze either. Imagine that. I appreciate the love...it doesn't have to be this difficult...

Thanks D~
His antenna actually worked, we pulled in 3 whole channels...

No Christmas lights up...I do think he will do it, maybe Christmas eve....

Tie him up...hmmmm...that could be why he didn't get them out yesterday.... I was on the verge of a complete meltdown...

Luckily today is another day. Perspective? I don't have one. I'm just taking it as it comes. Let's face it, I'm way too into being on a straight road, no deviations...maybe that's not so healthy either. If I can't learn to roll with the ups and downs, I'm going to be miserable. I've been in love with this man for 40 years....you would think I would have adjusted by now. He's really no different than he ever was, but I guess I have changed.

We're going for a ride, out to breakfast..then we'll stop at the Outlet mall and try and get the boys in the family something for Christmas... I told him, if he was interested, I would like a blue ray player with wifi so I can get NETFLIX in the great room (our kitchen/dining/family room combo)...easy peasy right? Poor man will find some way to make that difficult....

It will be all I can do not to give him a lump...of coal...in his stocking.

I'm sorry...ya gave me a good giggle this morning about the going's on with the hubster Yours sounds a lot like mine so I relate so well..... frustrating to the point you could strangle them, then ya turn around and they're doing something totally amazing so how could you be mad. Crazy-making sometimes!!!

You could get a Roku for the tv---we got one for DD17 for her room so she could watch Netflix and stream our movies off VuDU.... unless of course you want the actual Blu-Ray player?

Coal..... hmmmm, there are a few people I could think to get that for ....

Did you get your shopping done? I finished yesterday thank goodness because I've about used up all of my Christmas cheer on the idiots who seem to be out in droves..

Jayce & Dani,

Freakin' antenna pulled in 9 channels!! Off the grid for now, ABC & CBS

....BUT I still get FOX, the CW, KPBS, KUSI and two channels called COZI and THIS....and the picture is crystal clear!

So girls, no COAL this year but he sure came close!

Dani, I did not finish my shopping but I got closer to the finish line...I'm out in it today (eeek) but I'm going early (like in 1/2 hour) and coming home to hibernate and WRAP.

Trying to dump my shift tomorrow but so far, no takers.....

Looking at sunny skies and 70's all week here!

Oh gosh, I'd be dying without both those channels! Gotta have my Revenge & Person of Interest

Well thank heavens more channels showed up---saved himself from a stocking full of coal

I gotta go out in it too---DD19 just texted me from work (she was at work @ 7am today) that she needs to go to Walmart "real quick" after work..
I just realized that I didn't pick up 1 thing for DH.... at the big mall......completely across town....... UGH!

Oh no!!!! A shift on Christmas Eve...however did that happen?! Amazing huh, everyone wants your shifts except for when you WANT them to have them.

I have to have ABC and CBS! You can watch shows typically 7 days after they air online. Might try that???
