Needy, Insecure and Lonely

What a beautiful summer we're having!  Just enough rain to keep the gardens growing perfect and beautiful.  


Sunshine...  Rainbows... and blue skies


An abundance of color...


We have another mini-vacation planned for next week.


My daughter Lindsey and daughter-in-law to be Jessica will be going with us to Bethlehem PA where we will be seeing Blaise Delfino and (my daughter's forever birthday present) Ryan Cabrara in concert.  


And then, we will be going to NJ sometime soon to meet our new grandson, Greyson.  (Gary's daughter, Stacy is having her first baby).  He's not born yet but probably within the next few weeks.   I'm more excited about that than anything!  I wish we lived closer.  It will be very hard to spoil our sweet boy from this far away...


Not much else happening this summer...  


We're just getting some things done around the house....


And playing it by ear...


Dear Diary,

Today I heard something I thought I would never, ever hear. Remember how Mom always accused me of hogging the bed and Dad would say he could never get a good nights sleep because I was always like right there keeping him from changing position and Mom said it was too hot cause I was always right up against her and she couldn't stand it?  And Mom told Dad they needed to get a king sized bed and it would solve their problem?  And Dad said it wouldn't work because I'd still be right up against him because I'm a needy, insecure, lonely pack animal that lived and breathed to be close to my pack?   Well, Dad caved.  Mom got her bed.  And Dad said those three words that he never says to Mom, "You were right."  And I am sleeping so much better right smack dab in the middle of the bed without those two clinging to me all night..  Thank you very much.  Gracie.
