I watch my granddaughter about 4 days a week and we have so much fun! Yesterday, I bought this tube at CVS (a drugstore) for 50% off and she had no idea what to do with it! First she was afraid and ran in the other direction (on my lap)... Then I threw her little Dora doll in it and she crawled in and loved it! It is so much fun to see her excitement for the first time on things that we totally take advantage of.
Did I crawl in it...no, I'm to big...haha...I could get stuck in it! Now that would be funny. Imagine me rolling around the TV room floor stuck in the tube! Even I'm laughing at that thought!
Well, I'm off for another busy day! I hope it's a good one!
Happy New Year to you and your family and friends! Thank you for all your prayers for Penny's family and for my family. We miss Penny terribly but I know she is in a much better place now and no longer in pain. As my minister said, "it may have been to soon for us, but it wasn't too soon for Penny." That statement brought great comfort to my brother and I am glad for that. He is so heartbroken.
This is a beautiful (I'm bragging) picture of my Granddaughter. She is posing for my daughters friend's tutu company. Miss Allies Tutu's! She is the light in our family. For me, I would have had a dozen kids if I could have, but I couldn't so I'll have to spoil her! Don't worry, my older children are spoiled too!
Happy New Year my friends. I wish all of you health and happiness.
Today, my sister-in-law, best friend, mother, sister, loving aunt and grandmother died unexpectedly of a complication to her cancer. This was totally unexpected. We thought we had more time and we even got good news yesterday that the cancer was not in her adrenal gland, only her lung and they thought they could operate. But God had another plan, he took to heaven today to be one of his angels.
My heart is so broken for her daughter whom Penny died in her arms, her loving husband, my brother, Billy and Julia and Meghan, their other two daughters.
As you can tell this is a very close family. My daughter and son were just with her last night and my daughter was very close to her. Her nickname was MomaPenny to her for as as long as I can remember.
Penny and I have been together since we were about 18 years old, I think I have mentioned that before..I introduced her to Billy and it was love at first sight!
I have lost a best friend but I have a lot of happy memories. I am so sad.
I just want to say thank you to everyone who put her on your prayer lists and who have prayed for her behalf. I am deeply grateful for all you have done.
Early evening last night I was sitting at my desk in my bedroom...(I closed down my office in the sun room because I am conserving on my heating bill!) and this is what I look at! It's my neighbors house. I love their house and what you can't see is the white candles in the windows and the beautiful wreaths with red bows. I find myself sometimes just staring out the window thinking about everything. My dog Ariel is very sick too. She is going to have to go to the vet's today. Ariel is 14 years old and we have had her since she is was a little puppy. I hope it is nothing serious.
Penny is still waiting for her pet scan to be scheduled. You know what's weird about this, it's only been two days since we found out, but it seems like a year. Strange. My kids said the same thing last night to me. This is probably because she has been sick for about five years now.
Thanks for visiting today! I hope you have a delightful day!
Penny was diagnosed with lung cancer today. I'm not sure what to say but tomorrow she is seeing a lung doctor then schedule her pet scan. If it is operable, they think they can remove it because it is pretty close to the service.
To see my daughter laying next to her on her bed tonight was heart breaking. Penny is like her second mother, my daughter has always called her Mommy Penny! Especially since we just lost our dear friend Cathy a little over a year ago of lung cancer and my daughter was very close to her too. So this is hard, real hard.
Sometimes I have to wonder why, I don't even know what to think. I do know, that I am very sad.
Have you ever had one of those years when you just can't get motivated. I seem to be stuck. I have many gifts to buy still and I'm not worried, I'll get it done, hopefully by the end of the week!
Today was good day though. Penny is out of the hospital and is still very week and I would say she is not well at all, but you all know how we love to shop and today we went shopping to Home Goods. It was fun and just enough to get her out of the house and moving. Waiting for the results of the tests she had done is driving us nuts so a little shopping trip helped her. Penny was tied by the time we got home, but we did get some shopping done. We are very worried because the doctors are telling different things to her so we just have to wait for the results.
When we were driving home, she was a little weepy and I held her hand and tried to tell her that everything will be alright and to listen to her doctor that is is only an infection and not the others with a more aggressive diagnosis, but it's so hard and scary. My heart is hurting for her and her family. I wish I could just wave my magic wand and make her better.
After a very long fight, Penny joined her Mom & Dad on 12/20/11 May God Bless her family.
Have you tried the Time Wise Miracle Set yet?

I love my pets and all animals. I have five dogs, three Maine coon cats, one cockatiel, one bunny, salt water fish tank and a fresh water fish tank. I also have two teenagers and my daughters' fiance who is living with us. I work full time as a sales representative, I'm the Senior Deacon at Church and all this keeps me busy, busy, busy. My pets are kind, gentle, funny, amazing and they seem to have many different personalities. All they want is to be treated with love. I grew up on a farm with many pets from hamsters to horses and I never thought in a hundred years I would have so many pets when I left my childhood home. I thought having a lot of pets was crazy, but I do have a lot of pets and it is a lot fun and a lot of hard work keeping up with their appointments from the vet to the groomers and everything in between. In our home, the pets are part of the family. I hope you enjoy my pet stories and tips. If you would like to ask me a question, please email me at dgm1930gmail.com ~ Thank you
