I got a surprise today

My grandson was outside when the mail came. So he got it and brought it in. He was looking at this one package in particular and kept saying grandma, who's this from? I said well give it to me so I can see. I took a look to see who it was addressed to....it was to me. Then I looked at the return address! Well, ok I know who that is but whats he sending to me? So I got the rest of the mail out of the way then I opened the package.
It is a box of chocolates! Awww Chocolates, how sweet (pun intended)!
There also was a card. I opened it and then I.............cried. Yes that's right I cried. Not unhappy tears mind you but happy,surprised tears of joy. What a special treat! Now I will not tell you here who sent them to me. But I will let you know he will read this and know that I have received them and know the affect they had on me.
And let me say right here and now thankyou! you really made my day.

New Rules

GEORGE CARLIN'S NEW RULES FOR 2008
New Rule:
No more gift registries. You know, it used to be just for weddings. Now it's for babies and new homes and graduations from rehab. Picking out the stuff you want and having other people buy it for you isn't gift giving, it's the white people version of looting.
New Rule:
Don't eat anything that's served to you out a window unless you're a seagull. People are acting all shocked that a human finger was found in a bowl of Wendy's chili. Hey, it cost less than a dollar. What did you expect it to contain? Lobster?
New Rule:
Stop saying that teenage boys who have sex with their hot, blonde teachers are permanently damaged. I have a better description for these kids: 'Lucky bastards.'
New Rule:
If you need to shave and you still collect baseball cards, you're a dope. If you're a kid, the cards are keepsakes of your idols. If you're a grown man, they're pictures of men.
New Rule:
Ladies, leave your eyebrows alone. Here's how much men care about your eyebrows: Do you have two of them? Good, we're done.
New Rule:
There's no such thing as flavored water. There's a whole aisle of this crap at the supermarket, water, but, without that watery taste. Sorry, but flavored water is called a soft drink. You want flavored water? Pour some scotch over ice and let it melt. That's your flavored water.
New Rule:
Stop screwing with old people. Target is introducing a redesigned pill bottle that's square, with a bigger label. And the top is now the bottom. And by the time grandpa figures out how to open it, his ass will be in the morgue. Congratulations, Target, you just solved the Social Security crisis.
New Rule:
The more complicated the Starbucks order, the bigger the asshole. If you walk into a Starbucks and order a 'decaf grandee, half-soy, half-low fat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra dry, light ice, with one Sweet-n'-Low, and One NutraSweet,' ooooh, you're a huge asshole.
New Rule:
I'm not the cashier! By the time I look up from sliding my card, entering My PIN number, pressing 'Enter,' verifying the amount, deciding, no, I don't want Cash back, and pressing 'Enter' again, the kid who is supposed to be ringing me up is standing there eating my Almond Joy.
New Rule:
Just because your tattoo has Chinese characters in it doesn't make you Spiritual. It's right above the crack of your ass. And it translates to 'beef with broccoli.' The last time you did anything spiritual, you were praying to God you weren't pregnant. You're not spiritual. You're just high.
New Rule:
Competitive eating isn't a sport. It's one of the seven deadly sins. ESPN recently televised the U.S. Open of Competitive Eating, because watching those athletes at the poker table was just too damned exciting. What's next, competitive farting? Oh wait, they're already doing that. It's called 'The Howard Stern Show.'
New Rule:
I don't need a bigger mega bag of M&Ms. If I'm extra hungry for M&Ms, I'll go nuts and eat two.
New Rule:
If you're going to insist on making movies based on crappy old television shows, then you have to give everyone in the Cineplex a remote so we can see what's playing on the other screens. Let's remember the reason something was a television show in the first place is that the idea wasn't good enough to be a movie.
New Rule:
And this one is long overdue: No more bathroom attendants. After I zip up, some guy is offering me a towel and a mint like I just had sex with George Michael. I can't even tell If he's supposed to be there, or just some freak with a fetish. I don't want to be on your webcam, Dude. I just want to wash my hands.
New Rule:
When I ask how old your toddler is, I don't need to hear '27 months.' 'He's two' will do just fine. He's not a cheese. And I didn't really care in the first place.
New Rule:
If you ever hope to be a credible adult and want a job that pays better than minimum wage, then for God's sake don't pierce or tattoo every available piece of flesh. If so, then plan your future around saying, 'Do you want fries with that?'

Sat Photo Hunt - Messy


Nothing says messy like a baby with his first bite of chocolate candy. Not only does he seems to like it but grandpa does too. But the best part of this mess is that grandpa cleaned him up. He said I helped him to make the mess I will clean it up! Awww what a sweet guy!

SAT PHOTO HUNT - LIGHT

So this week's photo hunt is Light. What better way to show you my decorations for Christmas, than to show you what has lights. This picture shows the angel which is fiber optic lights and it changes colors. Next is the snowman who can be solid lights or flashing(when pic was taken it was flashing) You can also see some buildings there that are also lit.
This is my santa out front which is lit.

Then comes the sleigh,2 deer and the North Pole sign at the end which all are lit. Unfortunally the North Pole sign seems to be missing some lights and so you really can't see it. See the white dots all over the picture? That's because it was raining when I took the photo. It has been warm all day and lots of our snow melted and now its raining. Worse part is that its suppose to freeze later which will make for very slippery conditions. So there ya have it. Hope you enjoyed my lights.

SURPRISE

This probably should be on the Jackassery Blog but.................

So ok, here I am.....the grandma and the babysitter and I didn't even know my grandson now has 6 teeth! 4 on top and 2 on the bottom. The last time I had checked he had 2 bottom teeth and two were working their way in on top. Well today he bite me and Owww that felt like more than 4 teeth!
So I looked. And seen......more teeth. SO I told Mr Gab, and he says I know where the heck have you been? Ummm here, I think. SO I text my daughter and she's like yeah I know they have been there a few days now didn't you notice them? Ummm gee I guess not. Now I feel stupid.
No it's not because this past weekend I was sick. No it's not because it takes him to bite me. I just didn't look! And why did he bite me? I guess because I haven't been saying Oooooohhhh look teethys, let grandma see those teethys. (yeah I know teethys is not a word but go with it)

We finally got our Christmas decorations up. Tree, a few tabletop and outside ones. We didnt do as many as we usually do. I'm afraid that I have been very tearful these last few days. I can't explain it but I'm really down and blue this year. Maybe it has something to do with being broke yet again.

I did go to the Doc's this week......(did any of you catch the fact that I keep saying the wrong date?) I thought it was the 16th but alas it was more like the 18th. All he could tell me was stay on this med for another two months. So well I guess that's all.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Feeling Better

I'm finally feeling better...thing is its making the rounds of all in our house. I personally hate when someone else is sick.....because if I gotta clean it up I then get sick myself! YUCK.
Anyways just dropped by to let you know that for today I posted on the Jackassery Blog. Look to your right see the button? Yeah, you do,so go on click it.. dont be afraid, it wont bite ya know. CLICK IT I DARE YA TOO.

Forrest Gump goes to heaven

The day finally arrived. Forrest Gump dies and goes to Heaven.
He is at the Pearly Gates, met by St. Peter himself. However, the gates are closed, and Forrest approaches the gatekeeper.
St. Peter said, 'Well, Forrest, it is certainly good to see you. We have heard a lot about you I must tell you, though, that the place is filling up fast, and we have been administering an entrance examination for everyone. The test is short, but you have to pass it before you can get into Heaven.'
Forrest responds, 'It sure is good to be here, St. Peter, sir. But nobody ever told me about any entrance exam. I sure hope that the test ain't too hard. Life was a big enough test as it was.'
St. Peter continued, 'Yes, I know, Forrest, but the test is only three questions.
First: What two days of the week begin with the letter T?
Second: How many seconds are there in a year?
Third: What is God's first name?'
Forrest leaves to think the questions over. He returns the next day and sees St. Peter, who waves him up, and says, 'Now that you have had a chance to think the questions over, tell me your answers'
Forrest replied, 'Well, the first one -- which two days in the week begins with the letter 'T'? Shucks, that one is easy. That would be Today and Tomorrow.'
The Saint's eyes opened wide and he exclaimed, 'Forrest, that is not what I was thinking, but you do have a point, and I guess I did not specify, so I will give you credit for that answer. How about the next one?' asked St. Peter. 'How many seconds in a year?
Now that one is harder,' replied Forrest, but I thunk and thunk about that, and I guess the only answer can be twelve.' Astounded, St. Peter said, 'Twelve? Twelve? Forrest, how in Heaven's name could you come up with twelve seconds in a year?' Forrest replied, 'Shucks, there's got to be twelve: January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd... ' 'Hold it,' interrupts St. Peter. 'I see where you are going with this, and I see your point, though that was not quite what I had in mind....but I will have to give you credit for that one, too.
Let us go on with the third and final question. Can you tell me God's first name'? '
Sure,' Forrest replied, 'it's Andy.'
'Andy?' exclaimed an exasperated and frustrated St Peter. 'Ok, I can understand how you came up with your answers to my first two questions, but just how in the world did you come up with the name Andy as the first name of God?'
'Shucks, that was the easiest one of all,' Forrest replied. 'I learnt it from the song,
'ANDY WALKS WITH ME, ANDY TALKS WITH ME, ANDY TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN.'
St. Peter opened the Pearly Gates, and said: 'Run Forrest, run.'
Give me a sense of humor, Lord. Give me the ability to understand a clean joke, To get some humor out of life, And to pass it on to other folks Have a great week ... Blessings and Love,

Short and Sweet?


Ok I've got about 5 minutes break from decorating the house for Christmas. So I thought I'd post this picture.
Now if you seen the Jackassery Blog you might recognise the boy's face.
Well now for the rest of the story:
This boy is getting a shot for preventing bird flu. Now in my opinion either they very rarely get shots or the nurse was very rough giving him the shot. Either way I think his face is priceless!( Now you know why it takes 5 nurses to hold me down for a shot) LOL
REMEMBER TO CHECK OUT THE JACKASSERY BLOG.....BUTTONS THERE ON THE RIGHT!

SAT PHOTO HUNT-LONG

I had a little trouble with this one. But when I finally remembered the photo of the long stemed red rose my daughter gave me for my birthday last year I figured that would do.

I LOVE MY FAMILY TRUELY I DO

I really do but sometimes they can drive me nuts.
I need answers, but do I get them? Noooooo!
I want help, but do I get it? Nooooo!
So what do I need to do to get what I want? Disown them? Well, I don't know if that would work or not but let me tell ya I'm pretty pissed! And while I'm at it I hate when someone lies to me. Ya think I was born yesterday? And OBTW don't include me when you talk to others about your problems.....mine aren't like yours and never will be.
NOW WAIT!!!!!!! I just know someone in my family will take this wrong, someone always does! But I'm sorry I'm not naming names (besides I dont think they read this...so I'm safe blowing off steam)
AND YES THATS ABOUT WHAT I'M DOING BLOWING OFF STEAM. You see that's what this blog was mainly for.... me to blow off steam, talk about my family and friends etc etc.

Do you realise that there are only 18 days until Christmas? And do you know we haven't even started to decorate yet? I was hoping to get some money ahead so that Mr Gab could drive over and get the rest of my Christmas stuff. Can you imagine? I have 7 miniture trees and enough mini decorations to decorate them all, but they are all over there. Plus more outside decorations. But that ain't happening. And speaking of money it's going to be of those shop on Christmas eve things AGAIN!
SOME YEAR I'M GONNA BE LIKE SOME OTHER PEOPLE I KNOW AND START SHOPPING IN JANUARY AND BE DONE BY CHRISTMAS!!!! LOL in your deams baby in your dreams!

WHAT SOME OF YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR.....

WELL, I'M READY TO TALK!

I went to the specialist again today. you know the one the gastric specialist, and here is what happened:

I went in and they did the scope down the throat. When he got finished looking he said.. "Well, it looks good, your healing and the hernia is shrinking". So I asked " What about having a "lapband" put in"? He replied "No, I'm sorry your not a good candidate for that, because you have had so many other surgeries and have a lot of scare tissue so I don't recommend it at all". "What I do recommend is that you stay with this diet that you've been on and the meds I gave you 6 weeks earlier and lets see what happens". Then he proceeded to tell me to join something like LAweight loss clinic or Nutra Systems but not Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers. In his opinion those two are the worse as far as helping people loose weight. Of course you understand the first two are the more expensive ones. Either way I can't afford any of the four he named. SO it's going to be all up to me. One thing that bothered me is they didn't even weigh me this time around.
All day I've been really groggy. In fact I think I might have visited some blogs today and I haven't a clue as to what I wrote or said. I have also slept off and on all day. And right now bed is looking good to me again. Just wanted to stop in and let you know the results.
My next appointment is the 16th of this month with the rheumatoid doc. Night
