A NICE WEEKEND

 

 

 

 

 

I actually got to spend some grand time with my son. Just as a quick reminder--I have twin boys..they are 19 years old (soon 20) ...one lives in South Florida and the other just moved to Tennessee to attend college. The one that went to TN...is the one that came for a visit. He looked wonderful...and REALLY helped a great deal around the house. He got the heavy stuff moved to my daughter's room and also...cleaned up stuff that I just could not do myself...alot of ladder work.

Of course we had to spoil him while he was here...I paid him quite abit for all the work he did....I could not believe the changes in the house...we also bought him a cellphone...the one he had ...he had to give back to his aunt...(it does not cover tennessee) so we bought him one like ours that does...that way he is not on the road without help a phone call away. My van (remember that vechicle???) well my son always liked it...well something is up with the motor...it just does not run right at all...so he is sending us the money for a new motor and I gave him my van. We also took him to his favorite restaurant and we all oinked out....it was delicious...and alot of fun. Now I took dozens of pics of course...I always do...but my camera decided to die and now I need another one...it will not even upload the pics that I took...I am so devastated...but it figures. It can only happen to me.

He is back in Tennessee now...and I already miss him but he is so happy with the way things are there, that I could not be happier for him...boy is it rough letting go. I think we also bought him some clothing stuffies he needed and a pair of sandals...we are definitely a sandal family...lol.

The son and daughter got along GREAT this time seeing each other...I think being away from each other makes their hearts grow fonder...and they were inseparable...and so funny. They had me laughing the whole time.

Well right now...that is all the news fit to print...Below is a bit of advise sent to me...so I am sharing it with all of you...

PEACE!!!!!! 

NATURAL HIGHS!!     1. Falling in love.   2. Laughing so hard your face hurts.   3. A hot shower.   4. No lines at the supermarket   5. A special glance.   6. Getting mail   7. Taking a drive on a pretty road.   8. Hearing your favorite song on the radio.   9. Lying in bed listening to the rain outside.   10. Hot towels fresh out of the dryer.   11. Chocolate milkshake. (or vanilla or strawberry)!   12. A bubble bath.   13. Giggling.   14. A good conversation.   15. The beach   16. Finding a 20 dollar bill in your coat from last winter.   17. Laughing at yourself.   19. Midnight phone calls that last for hours.   20. Running through sprinklers.   21. Laughing for absolutely no reason at all.   22. Having someone tell you that you're beautiful.   23. Laughing at an inside joke.   24. Friends.   25. Accidentally overhearing someone say something nice about you.   26. Waking up and realizing you still have a few hours left to   sleep.   27. Your first kiss (either the very first or with a new partner).   28. Making new friends or spending time with old ones.   29.

A feel good entry. I can feel your positive vibes when you are writing about your kids. It is always a great feeling to see that your child who went away comes back to the family fold with renewed enthusiasm about being a part of the family. I am stealing your article and e-mailing to people on my list (may I?). Have a great week, Ellie!

Sounds like you had a wonderful visit with your son from TN.  OMG, I would feel the same, devastated without a camera.  I really like my new one, pretty cool for the price.

Take Care,

It's funny how my son and daughter get along so great now that they live apart.  Actually my youngest and my daughter were always tight.  My middle son and daughter were OK, but, now they are more protective and caring with each other.  It's so cute. :-)

HELLO,

JUST BY CHANCE I HAPPENED TO FIND YOUR WRITINGS.
I MUST SAY IT KEPT ME INTERESTED TILL I READ ALL THERE WAS.

THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR LIFE WITH OTHERS.  I ONLY WISH WE WERE NEIGHBORS.  YOU ARE A VERY SPECIAL WOMAN.

READING ABOUT YOU AND YOUR HUBBY AND CHILDREN MADE ME FEEL AS THOUGH YOU WERE PART OF MY FAMILY.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR ILLNESS IS BUT I WILL PRAY FOR YOU AND HOPE
YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SLEEP ONLY AT NIGHT AND WAKE UP FEELING ALERT.

GOD BLESS YOU.
GOD BLESS YOUR FAMILY.
ALL MY LOVE,
MARY
