Another Day...

Another day off and more sorting and packing. I think I have finished with the back bedroom....hmmm. I found things that I had forgotten we even had. haha. I found Easter baskets and surprises for the grandkids that probably have been there at least 2 - 3 years. I guess they won't get those.

I had some help today, so I acted as supervisor and told everyone what to do. I packed boxes and they carried them all to the designated piles in the basement.

Our daughter took some pictures for her walls and some kitchen stuff. She also took one of the oil paintings that I did several years ago. Whew..got rid of those...lol

I am beginning to think that I did not have food poisoning but a virus instead. I have felt crappy all week. Today was the first day that I really felt like doing anything.

Our daughter & Son-in-law from Amarillo, Tx called and invited us to a "Garage Party". They just finished building a new garage/party barn with all the goodies. 42" Plasma, kitchen, bathroom, and lots of room to do about anything that you want. It is on the 16th of August but Mac is working that day so we won't be able to go. Oh well, they will be here in September for a few days. We only see them about twice a year now. It will be nice when we get retired so that we can take our RV down there and stay for awhile to visit. Here's a photo of them.


Our granddaughter, Britny has been gone all last week to volleyball camp with her team. Her mom, our daughter, Dana took all the girls. Feel sorry for her being cooped up with 8-- 16 year olds. Here's a photo of Britny and our other granddaughter, Samantha. Brit on the left.


One of our other granddaughters, Natalie has been at her dad's house all summer and will be home tomorrow. Can't wait to see her.


I will eventually fill you in on all of our grandkids but that will take a while. We have 16 grandkids and 1 great granddaughter, Jaelynn. Ashley & Jaelynn's photo was in last weeks posts from their visit with us.


Mac's been working on the boat trying to get it cleaned up so we can put it on Craig's List.


Just doesn't seem to have enough hours in the day to get everything done.


I have taken a photo of our current TT. It is a 2003 Keystone Bobcat. The graphics were getting bad so we have stripped them and are waiting for the guy to come over and put some new ones on for us. We found some that have an actual Bobcat on them. It is about 70" long and I think will look pretty cool when finished.


Well I guess that is enough rambling for one day.


Life isn't measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away...

Beautiful grandkids netters.
I laughed when I read you found things from 2-3 years ago. I too have done that. Glad I'm not alone..
