Friday, January 29, 2010's January 27th and we are under a Winter Storm Warning! ughhhhh
I am sooooo ready for Spring...let's face it, unless you are of school age there's really nothing in it for me.
Don't get me wrong...I think that the snow is beautiful but after it stays around for a few hours., I want it GONE!!!

To me..Jan-March is the longest and saddest time of the year. I mean....what is there to look forward to?
Groundhogs Day?

The other 3/4 of the year there is always something to Love.


 I love when the plants and trees start to bloom.
I love Easter.
I love that the days start to get longer.
I love the smell of freshly cut grass.
I love to fish.


I love The 4th of July.
I love to swim.
I love to play outside with my Grandchildren.
(Did I Mention)I love to fish.

(My favorite time of the year)

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Halloween!
I love the crispness in the air.
I love the colors.
I Love Alabama Football!
I (kinda) love Thanksgiving.
I Love Black Friday with my girls.


I Love Christmas.
Other than that., I would gladly skip the rest of the season and head straight to Spring.

Facebook...The Good and the Bad

I've recently started doing the facebook thing and I have to's addictive. So...that being said, I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad one. There are some positives and some negatives so I thought I would list both and see if I want to stick with it.

I've connected with people that I have not even thought about since High School.

Good: I may have not thought about these people much but when I found them on Facebook, It was so heartwarming to see where they are in life. I also felt an immediate familiarity to them.

Bad: I also have to share in their heartache. If I had seen the story on the news or in a newspaper about the 25 yr. old man that had died during a duck hunting would have still been sad, but to now know that he was a son of someone I went to High School with and have just recently connected with, heart is breaking.

I get to follow my Boys lives and their doings more.

Good: I get to see their opinions and feelings about things that motivate them.

Bad: I don't always agree with those opinions!

My nieces, who are growing up way too fast, post often and I get to see a little of their life.

Good: I love seeing the pictures they post of the good times they are having in school.

Bad: I see where my oldest niece is posting about just getting home at 2am! (she is in college) but still!!!

I know it takes time to stay on top of this and I really don't know if I can devote that much time in front of my computer...oh , what am I saying, I'm on this thing all the time! I think I'll keep it up ... for now anyway. I know if my boys or my nieces read this they will be begging me to never sign into Facebook again.

How bout Elmo?

I had the Following conversation with my Granddaughter yesterday.

I had just picked her up from Daycare and as soon as I put her in the Car seat she asked,

Ellie: Where Elmo Movie?

Me: Darlin...Grandby doesn't have the Elmo movie anymore....Remember? I gave it to you so that you could watch it in Mommy and Daddy's car. How about we go to Walmart and get some new movies to keep in Granby's van.

Ellie nods

Me: How about a Dora movie?
Ellie: How bout Elmo?

Me: How about Mickey Mouse?
Ellie: How bout Elmo?

Me: How about......Yo Gabba Gabba!!!
Ellie: How bout....Elmo!!!

Me: OK....How bout Elmo?

Ellie: How bout Dora?

She never missed a beat....

Stubborn is as Stubborn does

As most of you know, my grandson Gabe thinks that he's Jack Sparrow. Well...for weeks now he has argued with me over a line in the 3rd Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

There is a scene where Jack is in Davy Jones locker and he is hallucinating. He grabs hold of a rope and before he swings off, he turns around and says "Gentlemen, I wash my hands of this weirdness"

Gabe insists that he says, "Gentlemen, I lost my head of this business"

No matter how many times I back up the DVD, he will NOT admit he's wrong!
