On the run…….

Figured I better get a word in here just to try and stay a little bit current……. every day we have been here has been filled with fun, family, friends and running……. OMG the running…….. I keep saying “hey, we have already traveled 1600 miles to get here – you come to us if you want to see us now……. but it apparently keeps losing something in translation. I have already put 600+ miles on the car running around…. but ….. and that’s a heavy but……. it’s been soooo worth it to be able to spend the time with our loved ones. And, we’re just getting good and started~! Again…… bad as I hate it – to make happen what I want – it’s [apparently] what we have to do. Our babies, our Grandbabies and those folks near and dear to us. My handi-dandy  calendar page that I keep slid in behind my wallet is crumpled and tattered now – and almost completely filled up for the rest of our stay…… and it goes without saying we have Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in the middle of that wonderfully chaotic scenario~!

We just got back from my Cousin’s place where drank, chowed down on some burgers and bacon, drank – yelled at the TV watching a Saints vs Chiefs game (that did not end well for ‘us’) and drank. I watched more football tonight than I have the last 3 years…… and now think I may miss it a little more than I thought – course, it could have had a LOT to do with the wonderful people I had around me…………

Haven’t been doing much picture taking……. like last night at Hacienda with our whole crew – just having too much fun watching Grandbabies being adorable and the smiles on everyone’s faces, to worry about messing with a camera. I am getting a shot here and there…. and as soon as a get a ‘set’….. I’ll put them up – but for right now, am storing all that in my brain (instant downloading and no editing required)  😉

Taking my 6 year old Grandson shopping in the morning……. that should be interesting to say the very least, but I think I am up for it. Hopefully we have a good time….. and maybe swing by Mickey D’s or some other place he wants for a bite to eat….. can’t wait for that. Aside from from Christmas Eve and Christmas Day – we have an afternoon scheduled for a good ole fashioned fish fry with bass and Crappie as the entree…….. for very strictly [personal reason’s] – I am looking forward to that, almost as much as I am anything else……..almost.

Out for now – will try to get some more up later – hopefully with some pictures… but right now, it’s late, I’m tired and even though I should probably take a shower…….won’t (see earlier about drinking a lot)….

Good Night Ya’ll . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Thankx for stopping in~!

(Did I mention it’s freakin COLD~!?!?!?!?!?!?!?)

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
