My fearless scout is 54 today!
So my husband got me what I wanted for Christmas. A fabulous new refrigerator.
My daughters and I were talking on Thanksgiving as they poured through the ads, that it’s a bummer they’re too old to circle all the Barbies and toys they want, and instead, they mapped out the sales on blenders and new bed pillows for their apartment. LOL.
I love jewelry and am always happy to receive it, but this years GE Profile was top notch in my book. Thanks, sweetie!!!!
Those of you who’ve read my blog on Jan. 1 in the past know I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions. Either I’ll do something or I won’t, and January 1 doesn’t mean squat to me. That said, this year I have made a “To Do” list that I’d like to do. Here it goes: Read the rest of this entry »
We have a winter wonderland outside today and me no like. White everywhere. Cold. Husband out on tractor scraping snow from the quarter mile drive to the street so we can get out of here. Ugh. Then it hit me . . . I don’t have to look at the icky outside when I have the ability to give myself a warm shot of sunshine. Read the rest of this entry »
I’m not running a contest now, but I’m up for an award so here’s the details. ALL THAT YOU ARE has been nominated for an RT Booklover aware in the Best Contemporary Romance of 2009. Pretty cool. Not sure when the winner is picked. I think maybe in the spring. I’ll be posting a new and awesome contest after the first of the year and it will be a good one! Keep returning for details.

I took a quick inventory of the owl dressed like Santa, squirrel wearing an elf suit and the leftover ornaments that nobody would want full price much less deep discounted. I moved on. And then I saw “it” around the corner. It was BACK! Read the rest of this entry »
So I haven’t made note of what’s on television since the ’90s when I tried to stay up on a variety of weekly shows. I got burned out on TV, found other things to do with my time.

As I sit and make out my Christmas menu for 15 adults and 7 kids, I anticipate making all this yummy food for everyone. I enjoy cooking. I enjoy eating. Then I started thinking about all the good food I’ve eaten this year. Read the rest of this entry »
My daughters are cool and fun and happy and nice and polite. I love hanging out with them. I miss them not living at home. It wasn’t always like this, and maybe if they did move back, I’d be reminded of all the stuff they did that irritated me. Such as . . . Read the rest of this entry »
Today my daughter has to get some dental work and she’s taking the relaxation drugs so I’ll be picking her up after she’s done. Poor kid. She’s almost 23, and she still wanted to come home to mom’s house after I get her. I have the blankie ready on the sofa, the Jello made, even some apple sauce. She wants to watch cable since she doesn’t have it at her apartment. A little more about Whitney is Read the rest of this entry »
