It is the weekend!!!! Yeah!!!! I have no plans for tomorrow, so I hope I will have time to scrapbook a little. It is soooo exciting. I have taken some things to the store to work on and I still have not completed any. I , once again promised to donate a few things to our Silent Auction Feb. 11th. One scrapbook , maybe 2, a recipe box or book, and a bucket I had sorta scraplifted off of another blog. ( I thought it was such a good idea) And I have had no time what so ever to complete them. I decided to do a recipe box ( metal lunch box) , I have the inserts 1/2 way done, I have 2 scrapbooks started- Christmas one and a Baby girl. The girl one needs 2 pages and the Christmas needs about 8. Time Time Time it is so fast at times. I work best under pressure , so lets see if I can make my deadline. This is Shabby Miss Jenn bucket and when I get my done I will have a picture to post. But is it not shabby- lish.

Bicker ( bik'er) intr,v. ered, ering,-ers. 1. To engage in a petty, bad-tempered quarrel; squabble.

This describes my parents. How can you work hard all your life , raise a family all the while working toward retirement. Putting your family first so that one day there will be time for each other. A time when you can enjoy each other, relax and have fun. I don't remember a lot of fights when I was a child. Just the usual things. But my goodness I feel so uncomfortable being around them now, they bicker all the time. I hope now, that I am seeing this , that we will find a way to prevent it. I want Terry and I to be home alone, together but I know we will also have our own hobbies ( apart) . Retirement to me is a reward. You have worked , saved, raised a family, bought a home, put things off until you retire. Enjoy this time, don't bicker , get out and enjoy. Mom came by the store yesterday and this has been on my mind for awhile now. I just had to put it out there.

Shhhhhhh Do you hear that? Nothing, no cartoons, no nanny will you... no baby crying, nothing. This is my first morning with no one here but me. Hubby has gone to work and I have the house to myself. Daughter and the grandsons moved out, well almost. There rooms are still piled high, but It is going soon too. Last night was wonderful and hubby was so agreeable with all that I wanted and needed. But face it most men are. It was nice. I love my hubby and my quite house. Now if the House cleaning fairy would come by while I was out today it would be perfect. Yeah, dream on!!!!Today is my day off and it is yucky out, but I am still going to the Thrift stores. I love the thrill of the hunt. It is also my dad's birthday. 69 years old. ***Happy Birthday Daddy!!! *** So it will be a busy day. But my house is quite.........

Friendship with ones self is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world. Eleanor Roosevelt
I see the end...
Through the boxes and baby walkers, toys and furniture all the stuff daughter moved into our house when she moved back home , only for a few weeks may I add. Dear Daughter has gotten a house, and has been working every night trying to clean it and get it ready to move in. I am getting excited to have my house and hubby back. And the alone time, we need. And the quite time, I am sure it will get too quite in a few weeks or months. But hey, they are only moving 5 miles away. I can go get those precious babies, and play with them and then take 'em home..... Happy Friday .

Now, I say to you today my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: - 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.'
Martin Luther King Jr.,

No matter what our belief's we all have a dream, that American dream. We all want to be created equal and have opportunity to advance. To, feel wanted and loved. To feel excepted and equal. Yesterday I hope we all thought about that speech and what it meant to you. Have a wonderful day!

Just had to post this: Grandson #1 will soon be 8, in 40 days. So he is already thinking about what kind of party he is going to have and the present he wants. Well, for Years he has wanted to go to Chucky Cheese for his birthday and I told him that it had burnt down. He was young and he believed me. I would rather have 25 screaming children at my house than go to" yucky cheese". Well, last week his mother drove by and he saw that it had not burnt down. He did not say a word about it until today. He has ask for a 4-wheeler for his birthday. I told him it was too expensive and what made him think he was getting a 4 -wheeler. He said " Because you love me and you lied about Chucky Cheese". So what is a Nanny to do?
Any advice......Anyone......Anyone.........Guess I better check on the price of 4-wheelers.
It is Sunday morning ,(EARLY) No one is up but me, No t.v, no noise at all but the tapping of the keys on the computer. I like it. But it won't last for long. Soon all will be up . And the noise will fill the house. So I wanted to get in a quick message before this happens. Hubby has been off work all week, and with all that has gone on we have not had a minute for each other. Grandson #1 just went back to school on Thursday. I just got my tree down yesterday. It is still in the Den, but down and in a box. And Daughter took it down. Thanks Jess!!! Busy! Busy! Busy! You know these " A day in my Life" scrapbook pages. I think lately mine would be more than a 2 page spread. I think things will slow down in a few weeks, or I hope so.
