I'm Here. Kinda.

Top Ten Reasons Why I Don't Blog So Much These Days:

10. I have writers block.

9.  I feel like I keep repeating my posts...

8.  My eyes burn when I'm on the computer for very long.

7.  I feel like I keep repeating myself posts ... Oops!

6.  I've been picking fleas off Gracie.  

5.  Facebook is easier and faster.

4.  I'm taking a break.

3.  Busy with life....

2.  Can't come up with anything different to write about...  *boring life* LOL

AND THE #1 REASON I'M NOT BLOGGING SO MUCH THESE DAYS:

1. Blogger will not let me go directly to my most recent photos in Iphoto anymore.  This makes it time consuming and a real pain when it comes to finding photos to put on my blog.


I need to regroup.  Then I will be back.  Or if something interesting happens and my eyes hold out.

My eyes are burning right now...  so I'm outta here. 

May everyone have a beautiful and blessed Thanksgiving!

Visitors

Greyson is our newest grandson.  He's the first on Gary's side...  so he's very special.

Greyson and his Mommy and Daddy came to visit over the weekend...  all the way from New Jersey. 

 Summer and Rissi got to meet their cousin for the first time.  Lindsey got to snuggle with her new little nephew.  I had my baby-fix and PopPop had a buddy to watch his Eagles football game with.  

PopPop and Grey...  Bonding.  "Go Eagles!"
"Can I see your piggies?"
















It was a great weekend!  And now...  we miss our little Grey-Bear.

Dear Diary,
What!  Tied to a leash in my own house!!  Whatever is the nag Mom thinking!!  I wanted to smell this little person and wipe my filthy face on its blanket and I was forbidden.  This was wrong on so many levels.   I'm afraid it will take a very long time for me to get over this abuse.  Gracie.

Sib Reunion


Getting seven  old farts kids together for a sibling reunion is not easy.  But my brother Larry felt it could be done when he arrived this week from Kansas.  So he petitioned the out-of- towners to be there or be square and before you could say 'what a bunch of nuts' the Thomas crew were all in one room.

Whew!!  

We had such fun!  

From left to right:  Dave, the youngest.  Rita, the funny one.  Angie, the school teacher.  Me, the boring one.. LOL.  Lindy, the oldest and wisest. Jimmy, the leader of what was once an army of five younger siblings who obeyed his every command, and Larry in the front, the Kansas brother, owner of his own pool maintenance company and coordinater of this crazy lovely event.



I'm Writing

I'm writing again!  It frees my soul from bottled up thoughts and memories.  This book will be titled GROWING OLD WITH GRACIE.  Every ...
