Here I Sit...

Remember the days of pay toilets?

I'm so old,  I do!
  I remember going to WT Grant and waiting for someone to come out of the rest room and holding the door open to save me 10¢!

I remember reciting that old rhyme,

Here I sit, broken hearted,
Paid a dime to poop and only farted!

That's how I feel this morning.

No!  I didn't have to pay to poop.

Much worse than that!  

Remember this photo of my Christmas tree last year?


It was a brand new tree!  I hate putting lights on my trees, but I love trees with lots of lights.

I searched and searched and paid a fortune for this wonderful, pre-lit tree.

I carefully put the tree away, making sure that all the connections were protected.

Yesterday, Andy came and braved those attic stairs and brought the tree(s) down.

As Alexia played cheerful Christmas music, I assembled the tree...

I plugged it in...


Crap!
Here I sit, broken hearted...

~sigh~

Here's What I learned...

If you have nothing to do for three or four hours but this...


Just you, a baby and your cell phone...

You might get lucky and get this...


If you keep tickling his lips!

~sigh~

I'm so blessed!

Let's Celebrate!

Wednesday, Mr. K and I celebrated our fifth anniversary!
 
(this photo was taken last year on our anniversary and Tony & Mindy's honeymoon)
 
Well, technically, we didn't really celebrate...
 
We acknowledged our anniversary and made plans to celebrate the next day
(Which was yesterday)
 
Since we do what we like when we want,
we decided that since there were cruises we wanted to take...
concerts we wanted to see...
food we wanted to eat...
We'd just do something simple.
 
We decided to go to dinner at one of our local restaurants that we really enjoy
and then hit the cinema to see Bohemian Rhapsody
 
 (I have always been a huge Queen fan)
 
Dinner was so nice, we had a corner table, the server was personable...
The timing was right, the show started at 7:05 (which is dangerously close to my 8:00 crash and burn time).
 
We got to the theater at 6:55...
Mr. K hit up the rest room while I inhaled the scent of popping popcorn...
 
We went to purchase the tickets...
I looked at Mr. K to see him frisking himself...
Giving himself a real pat down...
No wallet!
 
We headed back to the restaurant where they had his wallet waiting for him...
 
By this time, it was too late to see the movie!
 
~sigh~
 
Maybe tonight!

Splish Splash

Just lounging around last night when what to my wondering phone should appear...
 
Henry's first tub bath!
 
 
I don't think he thought it was a great idea...
 
 
But apparently Mom and Dad thought it was a Kodak moment...
 
 
And so he posed...
 
 
And it was soon lights out!
 
 
~sigh~
 
It's such hard work being an adorable baby boy!

Republican Hair and Living Room Picnic

This is how I woke up today...



Good grief, I have Trump Hair again!

Guess I'd better call for a hair appointment!

On a brighter note, yesterday Teagan and Locklan came to spend the afternoon
while Mommy and Daddy worked...

Before he left, Andy put Teagan in a portable high chair and sat her on the dining room table.


She loved it!

After he had his lunch, Locklan decided to open his restaurant again.
He loves to play restaurant, complete with a cash register and play money...


When Teagan got into his play food, he decided she could be a restaurant worker...


Personally, I would have fired her, but Locklan has incredible patience with her.

Later, we sat on the living room floor...



And we had a picnic!

Teagan doesn't crawl yet...


But she scoots backwards.


Usually under the furniture!

~SIGH~

I loved every minute of it...

AND was in bed by 8:00

I love being a grandma!

One of my Best Friends...

It's no secret that Locklan and I have a special bond...

We've had some great times and great adventures,
So when I saw this t-shirt online, I knew he had to have it!



If for no other reason than a great photo op!


 Holy spaghetti!
Or as he says, Holy Kabetti!

I love that kid.  

I was so afraid of being a grandmother (I know, stupid)…

He changed it.  Now I can't wait to be grandma to Teagan and Hank!

~sigh~

It's all good!

Why I Love My Phone

Mr. Redsock is waaaay under the weather this weekend,
so we were pretty much house bound...
I know, bummer, right?

Being house bound, we didn't get to see
 Andy's family choosing and cutting down their Christmas tree...

Or Mindy and Tony celebrating their first anniversary along with Hank...

But by the magic of my phone, 

I got to see this...


and this...


Or this...


But I did get to SEE them.

~sigh~

I love that part of my phone!
