She aint what she used to be!


Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower. ~Hans Christian Anderson

The purpose of life is a life of purpose. ~Robert Byrne


The miracle is not to fly in the air, or to walk on the water, but to walk on the earth. ~Chinese Proverb

Well I am back in Maryland for the duration of the summer until I go back to Florida, I will be caring for the Kiddos until school starts back up. It is much easier here as there is more room for them. However i get to do the housework! It's back to laundry by the bushels, cooking and cleaning!

One might say, but you have the pleasure of being with your grandchildren. BUT BUT she remarks, shouldn't I be able to love em and send them back! Anyone knows me, knows I love the kiddos, but sometimes I like time to myself! Owell that's life I suppose. Their mother is working lots of overtime for extra cash to pay the tuition for this year! Just grin and bear it granny, you will go back to your sedate life all too soon and you'll be missing them!

Grandma still needs a day here and there for herself. Just saying.

Enjoy your babies as they grow up so fast. I know my grandbabies did.

I'm going to be a great grandmother in December. :)

I agree we all need time to ourselves to recoup and take a breather.

I know when the kids come over to visit I am pooped.........

Enjoy your visit with them, as before you know it you'll be back in Florida.

Nice you can do that, but I agree quiet time is a must

Oh I can so relate, I have a few of mine twice a week and probably wouldn't want to do it more than that. I have two others I hardly ever see and one I just put down for a nap, such a sweet little guy.

Ohhh it's been too long since I've stopped by and now I'm off to see what else has been going on.

Your daughter is very lucky to have a loving Mom and Grandmom like you. Remember to take some time for yourself as I need that for me too.. Hugs...Michelle

Remember that you have to take care of the caregiver, too - you need a little time on your own once in a while.

Enjoy your time with the grandchildren. I understand what you mean about needing time to yourself though.

You are so funny. Just this weekend, someone noted during Sunday School, that of all God's creation, she thinks that humans are the only living creatures that take back their offspring, once they leave the "nest."
