Life In General

Saturday night in our home is usually quiet, not tonight! Tonight we have both grandkids here staying the night. Tyler is our oldest grandchild and he is on his way to being a teenager in March. Julia is 5 and in kindergarten.
I love being a "nana"...had I only known what was ahead when I was going through the stress of being a parent...that there was a reward at the end of it all! Grandkids!!!
We had pizza for dinner followed by a choice of 3 types of ice cream topped with chocolate syrup. I heard Julia saying ummm several times at the kitchen table. I think she was quite impressed with her choice of ice cream. Tyler ate 3 pieces of pizza, a huge bowl of ice cream and then wanted homemade hashbrowns. I forget at times just what it means to be feeding a pre-teen boy.
We have now taken pigtails out of our hair and put on our Disney Princesses nightie and got our blankie and are settled in by Grandpa to watch TV. Tyler has been watching some movie that is 3 hours long about the Roman Empire and wars. (Not my cup of tea)!
It is now quiet and I can find time to figure out this whole blogging thing. I am sure there will a large variety of posts on here according to how each day goes. Raves, Rants, Love, Anger it could all be displayed here so I will give you fair warning :-)


  1. Ang, I think I'm your first follower!! Woo hoo!! Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging!! I have had a nice, quiet Saturday as well....ain't it grand? Not enough of those, to be sure. How well I remember feeding teenaged boys. I can't believe my budget survived it! How in the world I ever afforded scrapping supplies is beyond me! lol

  2. YIPPEE!!!! It's 'bout time we signed up huh?
    It's fun in a weird kind of way LOL My day was crazy too! Carlee was sick with some very ugly virus so I worked today to make up for Thursday. Then I came home and messed up 4 cards in a BIG way. I am ready for bed and it's only 9:15 LOL That's the kind of day I've had! LOL
    I miss you

  3. Looks like you are off to a great start on the blog. I cannot believe that Tyler is going to be a teenager. Of course I still talk to TJ as if he is a kid and he is going to be 18!! LOL!

  4. Great start to your blog, ang. I still haven't started my blog. Too much going on. Soon though.
