Whine, Whine, Whine...........

I am horrified to discover that it has been TWO months since I last posted!! I cannot believe that! And I do believe that I pledged the LAST time I missed so much time, that I would do better! I need a keeper!!

I really have several good reasons why I didn't post, so will list them below for you:

1. I was busy whining about the rain.
2. I was busy whining about the wind.
3. I was busy whining about the fog.
4. I was busy whining about missing the kids.
5. I was busy whining about the fact there was NO chocolate in the house.
6. I was busy whining about the fact there was NO Pepsi in the house.
7. I was busy whining about the fact that I was whining.......

and on and on and on. Now, I can see that there is a definite pattern to the last two months. I knew I had been busy...but couldn't remember exactly what it was that I was busy doing. I asked Max? He said he couldn't remember......and he looked me straight in the eyes when he said that. Didn't blink, turn red, or choke on that lie.....Lord I love that man!

It truly has been a busy couple of months. Even with the whining, I managed to get quite a lot done. We have the new bathroom is wonderful! As soon as I get the camera back, I will show the before and after photos......Still have to take that After shot!

I have been busy emptying out the fifth wheel....Craig is about ready for it, and he seems to feel that he doesn't need all the fabric, sewing machines or scrapbooking goodies that are in there now.......I'm not sure that he really thought that through too well........I find that those items are totally indispensable, and am sure that they should be within reach at all times (along with the afore-mentioned Chocolate and Pepsi....). I am a firm believer that one should have priorities......and I am thinking that he might need to work on that.....

Brenda came home a week ago, and was up here for lunch the other day. She took us out to the Firehouse on Bay Street, where she and I gorged on Garlic Fries. They were so good, and so very effective......I am able to report that when it got dark that night, Max and I were not bothered by Vampires. While I haven't talked to Brenda since then, I feel that it is safe to say that she was able to protect her folks as well.....

She is actually home to help her folks' with the haying. Then she and Jeff will be in California for the next couple of years.....Jeff was transferred to Beale is amazing how things wrap around....I was born in Grass Valley, lived in Penn Valley, which is right down the road from the Base. In fact, my Dad worked at Beale! And to make it a smaller world yet, Don, one of the guys I worked with when I was working for the Airparts co. was born when his Dad was stationed at Beale! I just love how things come to be!

Well, I don't want to put your systems in too much shock, so I think I will close for now....(okay, Max is hungry and is making growling sounds......he says that it is his tummy.................)

I wondered if you had fallen into the ocean or something, LOL. Would you like a little cheese with that whine? hahahaha!!!!!! Glad to hear that you are still around!

Jan said...

LOL! Actually, I did notice that the rest of the group was offering to take me to the beach? Suppose?!!! I have thought of you and wondered how things were going! I am going Blog surfing tomorrow, so I'll see what all you have been up to!

Wow I don't post as often as I used to either. But it's good to have you back.

LOVE garlic and have never had garlic fries. They sound yummy.


Jan said...

Mary!!! I am so glad to see you! Hope things are going good!! I am going to be visiting your blog tonight!!

Donna said...

LOL, thanks for catching up on reading my blog. Yes, I had total knee replacement surgery for my left knee 5 weeks ago. It has NOT been fun! But I'm getting better. There was lots of whining around here, that's for sure, along with tons of tears!

Sorry that your family didn't like the chicken salad recipe. Darn it all!

My sister says the same as Donna, "would you like some cheese with that whine?" -LOL-
We all need a break, don't be so hard on yourself. Put your big girl panties on and tackle your to-do list.
Good advice, perhaps I should take it.

Jan said...

Donna....they LOVED your recipe!! Not so much for the one I made the night before! SOOOOOOO...they got your recipe for lunch the next day? And no one noticed it was chicken again! Bless you!

Jan said...

LOL!!! The "big girl panties" came on last night!!! I had managed to freak myself out with the list? And lost perspective? Thanks!! Now, we'll see how it goes!!!
