Funny lil' girly girl!

"Mom, wanna see what I found in the burn pile?" (near our woodburner) Meggie asked.
What Megs? I replied.
She then holds up a Netflix looking card in the same shape as a credit card, then asks me.....
"Is it debit or credit?" 
Out of the mouth of babes!

My Quirky Kids Quotes...


Meggie says, "Mommy, I need to take a shower!"  "Not now, Miss Meg," I replied. "But MOM, I haven't taken one for years and years!"

While Matt-man is enjoying his third cinnamon roll I made for them, he exclaims, " Those are SOOO TASTY!"

Andy Jay has been acting like a teenager lately.... lots of negativity, and general crabbiness.  I have had many talks with him about his thought processes.  So, last night, much later than he should have been up. He came to my room and says while hugging me, "Mom, I am sorry that I was a jack-wagon, I love you Mommy!"

Awwww............ sweetness to the ears! :o)

And I'm baaaaack!

Not at 100% mind you, but back to this little fish bowl of my life.  You see, Mr. Green-Goo-Bag was in dire need of removal.... and is gone now!  Dr. took it out at about 1:00 Wednesday afternoon, then I went to recover.  It seems that I had some gas build up, which caused great distress to me!  Call me, I will give you the whole scoop! :o)
Anyhow, Ma was here with us yesterday and over night. Jeffey is here with me now watching the History channel and being my "water boy".  Meggie is trying to help, but finally fell asleep beside me on the sofa--- thank the Lord, she was quite crabby!  She is still out!
I am enjoying the peace... Andy is with a friend, Matt is with Papa and Gma.... bless their hearts for letting me have a somewhat peaceful day!
Thank YOU everyone for your well wishes and prayers! 
It is all GOOD! :o)

Pickin' with my Ma....

Yep, we did the unthinkable! We entered the doors of the junk shop downtown Crawford.  Yup, we discovered some GEMS!  First, we were downtown for Tai Chi... with the gals at the Eagles.  It was fun to learn something new.  I love, LoVe, lOvE to learn new things! Anyhow, sidetracked again.... Ma and I went in to check it out.  We are pleased to announce that it is still home to the prehistoric tampons!  FOR REAL!  I am not kiddin'.  Also, Meggie had a great time looking at the mangy dolls and ect. while I found an antique child's toy cash register JUST like my Dads.  So, i bought it! :o) Then we found an awesome old register hidden away in the front covered with junk.... the owner claimed it to be the first cash register in CRAWFORD! Sheesh!  That is nifty! And, he also told us that the gi-normous bakery shelf unit on the north wall was from the FIRST bakery in Crawford built in 1888....and.... it was for sale for a measly $3K.  "Yup, it appraised for about $30K!" the owners also claimed.  Nifty bit of history we found!  We left with the feeling that there are lots of treasures really buried in that old building.... just who has the energy to dig THAT DEEP! :O)

Well, I will be crafting something wonderful soon.  Check this out:
Looks like a great project for the sofa.... the next few days while recuperating!

This register is similar to the one I purchased today!

Mamby Pamby-land....

Yup, I was there. Off on a tangent of getting the Christmas goodies gathered, wrapped and tagged.  That is what the worlds women do.  Christmas is, in my opinion a child's and woman's holiday.  The guys really miss or AVOID the work of it all.....cooking, doing the dishes, digging out the decorations, putting all the decorations out, and making the home all pretty and festive.  Guys totally don't get it, huh?
Okay, my Hubs kicked it up a notch this year... he "Griswalded" the house and property with beautiful lights... AND HE HELPED ME WRAP THE SANTA GIFTS!  Yeppers, you can exhale now.  He had to help me, I had a out-patient surgery on my back on the 22nd of Dec.  So, I was out of commission for a few days.... -I didn't plan it that way!-  But, we got it all done and the kids are so happy with their gifts!  They are spoiled!
Anyhow, at the moment, I am still fighting a stomach ailment which has affected me for about 6 days now.  I went to the Dr. and had blood taken, so far no news... tomorrow is my follow up appointment.  We will see....
