Well, I don't think I have posted since the end of February. I am having a very hard time sitting still long enough to really write anything. I can get more written than say a #twitterpost but not much more than a semi-decent Facebook update. I have managed to fall again and I think that I have maybe bruised my tailbone. I can tell you that my coccyx hurts like the Dickens and the rest of my lower to mid-back doesn't fare much better. Due to some other issues we are going through Icy Hot Spray and Aspercreme at almost the speed of a professional sports team. That's a lot of Icy Hot and Aspercreme. We are careful about not overdoing it and are aware of the dangers of overuse.

Anyway, my writing, such as it is has suffered and I am sure that my little blog feels neglected. I hope I can get the knack of just doing very, very brief updates because I have a lot to say just not the sitting power to say it.

Yesterday(March 10th) I got to see Kimbo and Jessica for a few minutes. We went and picked up our Girl Scout cookies. I got hugs from the girls, got to smell the tops of their heads and the smelled so sweet. I also got to sneak in a few kisses on their little noggins. Jessica was pretty busy playing with rocks and gave me one. Miss Kimberley stayed by my side a bit more so I got to sneak some more hugs in on her. They are such beautiful and precious girls. As I have said before I would battle legions of armies and walk across hot coals to protect these girls if need be. They own my heart completely. I have Jessica's rock to put away and save with other precious items. It was a beautiful gift filled with love and spirit.

Today(March 11th) Miss Teffers and I went to see Mr. Peabody & Sherman. It was very enjoyable. For anyone who grew up watching Mr. Peabody on the Rocky and Bullwinkle show the movie should prove to be a fun diversion. It isn't as good as the original but it was cute. I loved the travels in the Wayback Machine. That was the best part of the movie, of course.


On Sunday, March 9th, my nephew Hunter turned 25. Good gracious I remember the day that boy was born. We went to the toy store and bought him a gun and a fishing pole. I got him his first gun. I am a good auntie. LOL!!! I bought him a ton of other toys too. I am sure that his mom and dad loved packing up the car to go home from the hospital with all of those toys in addition to flowers, baby and baby stuff.

We had a family gathering on Sunday to celebrate not just Hunter's birthday but also daddy's, mama's and Nick's. Daddy is just now feeling like going out and socializing again since having his open heart surgery which is the reason that we had so many parties at one time. It was a great visit and we had lots of fun.

Is this an exciting blog entry or what? At least I didn't detail my trip to Kroger. I spared you some of the awesome moments of the week. LOL!!!

I hope you have a lovely Wednesday!

Ciao!

Ardee, did you have your tailbone x-rayed? I don't know what they could do about it if you broke it, but at our age you can't be too careful. (That's why I do all that weight-bearing exercise. I don't want to have honeycomb bones like my mom.) Do tell, because I will worry.

If having grandchildren is anything like having your own, I think I will feel much the same as you do. :)

I used to watch Sherman and Peabody when I was a kid, too. It was one of my favorite things about the Rocky & Bullwinkle Show. I'm not sure what to think about the mean CPS worker, though. I've talked to a few, one was on a serious power-trip, but I met another very nice one in person and I would prefer to think of them that way.

Isn't it wild when kids you've known as babies are all grown up?! I think you're probably a splendid auntie. (How old was Hunter when you bought him that gun? I'm curious.)

It sounds like your dad must be feeling loads better! I'm so glad for you and for your mom. <3

Mer, I have not had my tailbone x-rayed. There really isn't anything that can be done for it. I have cracked it many times in the past and have a chip that has never reattached on the end. That chip has been "floating" there for about 40 years. You do know that I am not the most graceful person around, don't you?

I really hate to think of CPS workers who are on power trips. I know they are out there but I don't like it one iota. I also know that some CPS agencies are very punitive. There is no need for that crap either. There are better ways to protect children than to act like you are part of some evil empire.

I don't know that I am all that good of an auntie but I love Hunter and Houston with all of my heart. Hunter was less than a day old when I got him his first gun. I wanted to make sure that his first one came from me. LOL!!!

Daddy is doing ever so much better but he still tires easily and I think is still a little taken aback by everything. He doesn't quite have his "land legs" back yet. Bless his heart.

As for Mr. Peabody & Sherman. I just loved them. Well, I liked most of the Rocky & Bullwinkle show(and still do). The movie was just a fun romp. I wish we had enough on our gift card to go back again but it will be on Netflix before too long and then maybe I will get to watch it again.

Hugs,

Ardee-ann
