Towards the end of this clip the newswoman gives the call letters to the station and you can go there to get this families blog address. It makes my heart break to know that children have to go through this too.

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s day to all the daddies out there! Remember to relax and let everyone wait on you hand and foot!! A special Happy Father’s Day to my dad who is the greatest dad on the planet. I know you think yours is, but he’s the greatest. 🙂

Bumpkins go to the City

Bumpkins go to the City

Me and the big C ended up going on a much needed 2 day trip to the city. We stayed at a place called the Hotel Monaco and it was grand indeed. The room was beautiful. The building was built in 1912 so it was crown molding everywhere and really high ceilings and windows. In the lobby (they called it the living room) they had free cocktail hour so we went down on the first night and the big C had a really good micro brew while I sipped Coke out of a wineglass and damned my medications that i have a love/hate relationship with. This was one of those hate times…I took a walk around the livingroom staring at all the art and going oohh, ah when appropriate. Me and the Big C were not dressed for this hotel but I didn’t really care. I wasn’t about to drop cash for some city casual in size one million for my new fat ass. I just squeezed into whatever I found in my closet. sigh. They had these 2 beautiful dogs in the lobby, it is their home and I was checking out their beds which looked waaaay more comfortable than mine at home. They has silver serving dishes and this cute little fire hydrant in their little living area. Fancy city dogs. If we would have brought Dobbie, they would have mocked him and then turned their noses upward I’m sure. All kidding aside, it was a great hotel, excellent staff, I’d go back in a heartbeat but then I’d have to kill my kids all over again when i got home. sigh. I don’t know if I could do it twice. Getting blood out of the carpet is hard….just kidding! ha! My son came over for the weekend with my 3 grandkids who like run rampant when I’m not there to regulate. Well, looks to me like there was some kinda party and they left before we got home leaving everything for my daughter to clean and clean she did. She was exhausted and there is still so much to do. Her doc told her to rest, no lifting, etc. Her bf is going to have to pick up the slack since all I seem to see him do is sleep, eat, and talk. That doesn’t make my countertops shine dammit!! We had a great time, it was good to get away. I’ve been flaring ever since, but it was well worth it. I think we are going to have to do something like this every couple of months, it helps in the sanity department.

This is me talking to a statue of a seal downtown.  I really do need to get out more often..

 

I thought the courthouse looked cool.

 

We just missed a flower show across the street from the courthouse, but I got a quick snap of this sunflower.

Da na na na na na…

Da na na na na na…

Today is my birthday, it’s my birthday too yeah!  LOL  I have had that Beatles song stuck in my head since I woke up this morning.  Well, it IS my birthday!  Another year older, sigh. 🙂  It’s all good.  I have earned every wrinkle and every gray hair on my head, and when I think about it I had fun earning each and every one.

I have family coming over today to celebrate this rockin day and this weekend the Big C and I are going to try and get out of here, maybe spend it at the coast.  I wish the weather was better, but in fine Pacific Northwest fashion it’s rainy and crappy outside.  That’s OK though, sometimes it’s nice to go to the coast when it’s stormy.  It makes it all the more worthwhile when you finally get the campfire going on the beach.  This ol’ body is still flaring but I’ve chosen to ignore it’s call for all of my mental attention and have some fun. Thank you all my friends for the  great birthday wishes and a special shout out to my friend Az who sang on my facebook wall, and to my bff Angie for being the rockstar that she is.  She keeps me sane and anyone that can do that is amazing.  While you’re here and listening to me babble on, please check out the rock star’s site Family Life Pharmacy.  If you have no insurance (like me) you can save some dough on your prescription costs.  SHAMELESS PLUG, SHAMELESS PLUG!!!  I don’t do that for just anyone, this lady rocks.

OK, I’m outta here.  Gotta put my laptop and my coffee down and go get pretty for today!

Talk to y’all when we get back!

Pink Hearts

Pink Hearts

Here it is, finally!  Aren’t they beautiful?  I just think that it’s so cool that there are flowers shaped like hearts.  But then again, I’m easily impressed.  Just about everything is in bloom, I’ve gotta get out there today and get some shots.

Enjoy!
