Merry Christmas past, Happy New Year and Yada, Yada, Yada.......



The last time I wrote was..... well a long time ago. I'm sure I have people that look in and check to see if my brain has began working again or if I'm still on permanent vacation. I'm sorry to say the juices still are not there and I'm just a tad bit to tired from running the walls and floors of W*mart's bakery to sit down and think about what I could possibly tell you that you'd really want to hear. I am still a packager and will probably remain that until I drop dead in the place or I can walk on water, the water walking will never happen- I assure you, LOL....
I did get a .25 cent increase to my measly wages and it mystifies me at W*marts profits and how they justify paying us what they do BUT, In fairness to them I said "yes" to their proposal and so I'm doomed to a life of pauperdoom ( like that word, I just made it up! aren't I clever) ... It's all about the mighty dollar and how it can be given and taken all in the same breath, of course with customer service in mind all the way. I can't be out of work, but work isn't doing it for me either.... What to do, that seems to be a question on every one's mind these days! I am the second income in this family well if you don't count Will and Erin, They are after all our Children and both adults, so it doesn't count as someday they will more than likely move out, get married and have a life of their own.... Well that's the way it works (according to others I've talked to). Until such time happens I am very happy to have them here because Will is just a peach to watch in action ( LOL) and Erin, well if I didn't have Erin right now, my other 1/4 (husband) would crawl up in a ball and die of starvation or dirty house syndrome, which ever came first!
As you can tell, things are just ducky here!
My health is still on my mind but I vowed not to whine this time.... deep breaths!
I did NOT bake this year, I know it's a sin for sure but having to drag my a$$ around the kitchen and bake at the same time was just to much for this worn out woman to think about. I bought most of the goodies that were served at my holiday meals from the very bakery I work at, who would have thunk it a year ago!
Our family was truly blessed this Christmas season and we gave thanks.... Our Grand baby is the light of our lives I can assure you and when you get a load of the pictures of this Christmas you will see why all eyes are always on her and every little word she spouts makes us laugh! I always count my blessings, though maybe not as loudly as I should, but just this morning
I held my Darling Grand Daughter as she woke up from her slumber softly crying, I wondered how many more times I will hold her to kiss away her tears and hush her fears or to influence her to be a good person, to sing to her , to just be a grandma to her, A fear rushed over me that it may not be as long as I wish, while I'm sure all grand parents and parents alike, do this and I'm sure life is made to be lived and so off I go to live and to try to be the best that I can be at everything I do, I bid you peace in the new year, joy in all you see and love from all you meet....

JUDY!!! It's so nice to see you here again.

I love the princess with her wubby and thumb... that's priceless!

I (don't tell him I said this) agree with DP... if anyone can do it, it's you. Buying baking is no sin... buy, buy, buy until you're better, better, better.

Big-ass X's and O's for you. <3
