Here we come.
Kenneth, myself, Kujo and

Anika and Maiyah.

Should be an interesting trip.
This might make it or break it for me as a "Gramma"! LOL
I'm sure that everything will be fine.
Good thing Kenneth is driving.
Wait, maybe I should drive and let him deal when they get cranky.
Naw, it'll be fine.  Really.
Do I sound convinced?
Have a wonderful Thursday!

Wordless Wednesday

Fall wreaths

I posted pictures of the yarn wreath recently, but was not happy with the felt flowers.
It was a 21" wreath and I thought that I did not have enough flowers on the wreath, and was not happy with the way they turned out.  So back to the store I went for some different colors of felt.  Once I figured out that 
I was rolling the felt the opposite way I should have been the flowers turned out more, well more flowery looking!  So here is the new and improved yarn wreath.

My next project was inspired by a wreath that I saw on Pinterest.

I started with the letters and a banner that I found at Michaels and Hobby Lobby.
Then I spray painted them purple.
I added gold glitter stick on letters to the banner.
The banner went on one side of the wreath, the football on the other.
The letters and a bow out of gold and purple ribbon completed the wreath.

Sorry about the last picture, it was fixing to storm so it was getting dark outside and the flash on the camera was working perfectly. 
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

A Funny Thing Happened

On the way to the forum....
OK, not really the forum, more like the shower.
I pulled my t-shirt off, forgetting that my glasses were perched up on my head, 
not on my nose where they should be, and pulled the glasses off with my t-shirt.
Yep, onto the floor.
A carpeted floor mind you.
Here is what they looked like when I picked them up.
Oh yeah!
I've been needing new glasses for a while.  Even though they are bifocals, I was having to take them off or
shove them on top of my head to be able to read.  I just kept putting it off. I mean it was so bad that my 
glasses stayed on the desk more than on my face at work.  
My co-workers made fun of me. 
But forget the bifocal part.  My left eye is -4.75!  I know that's horrible. 
Actually, it's better, it used to be -5.25, but I digress.
I can't see to drive.  Well, I could but it would not be safe for anyone really.  I have prescription sunglasses.  But at night, well it'd be bad!
And this happened after 5 yesterday. 
I was freaking, wondering if I would be able to get in to see anyone today.
I had heard about a place in the town near me that will have your glasses ready in an hour and they took our insurance. So I called this morning.  AND they got me in, this morning.  I had just enough time to get dressed and get to the appointment.  Not only that my glasses were ready in two hours!
Sorry about the fuzziness of the pic, don't know if you can tell but my eyes are still way dilated.  Blah.
Hope you have a great weekend!

Wordless Wednesday (Almost Thursday)

What started out as this:
 Ended up as this:
Not sure if I am happy with the felt flowers though.
I'm thinking those will be trashed and I will find something else for the decoration.

I have been keeping my hair long for the last several years.  
With the exception of three years ago when I chopped it all off in a short bob.
Regretted it the second the first bunch of hair hit the floor.
So lately, I have been thinking about getting my hair cut again, but this time I decided to get a longer, very layered cut.  Like this.
So here is the back of my hair prior to the cut, that I usually wear up in a ponytail or with a clip.
AND after the cut.
Now we'll see if I keep it up or if I just let it grow again.  That's one thing I like about long hair,
it does not require constant upkeep and trimming.
Got stuff to make a couple of wreaths for the house today, One is a football themed wreath and the other is for a yarn wreath.  When I get those done will post them, and the process!
Have a great weekend!

fill in the blank friday.

Let's just cut to the chase and get blanking today!

1.   One thing that is completely superfluous, but that I could never give up is   pedicures, they are so relaxing and it's like a small little gift to myself once a month, twice if I can fit them in.

2.  Witnessing arguments between other people   makes me feel awkward.

3.  I can't  believe that it has been 3 years  without,  my Dad.

4.   Chocolate  is my favorite snack.

5.  Lately I've been   crazy busy in my life, really since the end of May, CRAZY. BUSY.
6.  If at first you don't succeed  get frustrated, jump up and down, then stomp your feet. LOL, not really, but sometimes you have to wonder if those two year olds are on to something.  Try and try again, if it is important enough to you, if not, life's too short, move on.

7.  Fall is  falling leaves, beautiful colors, cooler days & nights, and FOOTBALL!

Corny Joke Thursday

I just started three
12 hour shifts Wednesday and
I'm tired, so pardon my post for today.  Corny jokes for Thursday:
A little old lady went to the doctors office for a check up.
The Doctor asked her what he could do for her.
She says, "Doctor, I have the worst problem with passing gas.
Luckily, it is silent and doesn't smell."
Doctor says, "Ummm hmmm"
Lady says, "You probably don't know it, but I have passed gas three times since we've been talking."
Doctor replies, "Ummm hmmm, Try this prescription and return to my office in two weeks."

Two weeks go by and the little old lady returns for her follow up visit.
The Doctor asks, "How are you doing today?"
Lady replies, "Doctor, instead of getting better, it is getting worse.  I still pass gas, but now it stinks to high heaven.  Luckily, it's still silent." 
Doctor says, "Well, we've got your sinuses cleared up, now we need to work on your hearing."

Told you they were corny. 

 Confucius Says:
Man who run in
Front of car get tired.
Man who run behind
Car get exhausted.
Man with one
Chopstick go hungry.
Man who scratch butt
Should not bite fingernails.
Man who eat many
Prunes get good
run for money.
War does not
Determine who is right, war determine who is
Wife who put
Husband in doghouse soon
find him in
Man who live in
Glass house should change clothes in
Man who fish in
Other man's well often catch crabs.
Crowded elevator
Smell different to midget.
Beginning with that joke.
Have a Terrific Thursday!
