I really don’t have to think very hard for this one. I absolutely hate to clean the bathroom. Luck for me, Fabgrandpa has done that chore for me for as long as we have been together. I never asked him to, he just started doing it when he moved in. I really really appreciate that, too.
31 day challenge
While there is not a whole lot that bugs me, one of the things that people do that bugs me the MOST is throwing their trash out the window of their car, or just dropping it on the ground when they are walking. Now, you go for a walk in a beautiful place like a park or a national forest, or a national park, and when you get there it is pristine. It looks beautiful for you. So why in hell are you gonna drop your trash, so that the next person who comes in behind you gets to see your burger wrapper or your coffee cup? No one wants to see that! Just keep it in your car until you get to a trash can. Please. For the rest of us.
Hmmm, I would say that I relax by sewing:
Hanging out with my friends:
And whenever possible, lovin on my grandkids:
I am such a creature of routine! As soon as I get up every day, I make up my bed. (ok, as soon as FabGrandpa get out of it) It makes me feel bad to walk into my bedroom during the day and see the bed not made. I was not always that way, but for at least the last 25 years, I have to do this.
My morning routine, every day, is: cup of coffee, read my emails, read my Facebook news feed, read several forums. Check my bank account, check my blogs for comments that need to be moderated.
At night, right before I go to bed, I wash my face, brush my teeth and my hair, take my metformin, my lisinopril, and my low dosage aspirin. Put my glasses on the table. Good night.
Me and my friend in 2001. I had FabGrandpa take this pic of me back in 2001 so I could send it to my grandkids.
This one was taken in 1996, when a friend and I drove from Atlanta to San Antonio to take the bassinet that my son slept in to him so his first born could also sleep in it. We drove down to Laredo and crossed the border to Mexico. The Mexican guy who owned this stall took the picuture.
And this one, I laugh because I know the story that goes with it! But, SOME things will forever be secret!
I have to laugh at this one, because, um, I do live in an RV. We have two rooms: The bedroom, and the living area that includes the kitchen. But, my favorite area in the whole trailer? My little sewing niche:
What? You were surprised by that?
Whether I wear my prescription sunglasses or my regular prescription glasses, I use them every day. They are the first thing I put on in the morning and the last thing I take off at night. I have worn glasses since I was 13 years old, and probably SHOULD have worn them since I was 6. I still remember the day I got my first pair of glasses. I walked outside wearing them, and I could actually see the leaves on the trees. Before that, trees looked like a green blur in the summer sunshine.
Back in 2003 FabGrandpa and I went to the mountains of North Georgia for a vacation. After we made our plans, we sent out an email to the kids inviting them all to come and join us there. My son, who was stationed in England at the time, flew over with his two children to join us.
Michael and Sarah were into Spongebob Squarepants back then, and could recite their favorite cartoons word for word. They kept us entertained with that.
We were staying at a cabin where there was a lake for fishing. Michael caught a stringer full of fish that was bigger than he was:
Sarah got a fishing lesson from Aunt Becca:
While Michael, his Dad, and FabGrandpa went out in the boat:
Later, we went to the Atlanta Zoo, where Michael got intimate with the Willie B Gorilla statue:
And Sarah posed as a giraffe:
We had such a good time visiting with Michael and Sarah! We don’t get to see them very often, so it is such a treat when we do.
