Ebay Watching

I don't buy much on ebay but when I am interested in something on the site I tend to watch it quite often. The other night I had bid on an item and watched it into the next day. Of course,I lost the bid by $2.50. I realize that another person may have had a much higher maximum bid than what they won with but it was still a bummer to lose by such a small amount.

Grampa and Emry

When we went south to visit Emry our new grand son, he and Grampa hit it off right away. They made faces at each other and had a great time! Emry is so alert and sharp for being days old. It was tough to leave them all when heading back home, but we'll see them soon at Christmas time!

Lapband Surgery

Many people today are interested in losing weight. There are many ways to accomplish this, both surgical and non surgical. One type of surgery that is done to help is by use of the LapBand system from JourneyLite. For those that have had trouble losing weight no matter what exercise or diet they have tried, LapBand might be what they need. By using a laparoscopic technique, meaning small incisions rather than large cuts, a silicone band is placed around the upper part of the stomach. By doing this the size of the stomach is made smaller and there is less food that can be taken in at a time. With a smaller stomach it will take less food to make you full. If less is eaten it will be easier to lose weight. JourneyLite has facilities and surgeons located in the USA. If you are looking for a Tampa, Houston or LA weight loss facility you should check out JourneyLite. You will find out more about the company and also testimonials when you do.

It sounds like the weather is about to change. The temperatures are due to be much cooler in the next day or so. Even in the southern states it could get as cold as in the 40 degree range. That is pretty cold and very different from what it has been recently. I guess winter is close but before we know it, spring will be here.

Rolling Over

Jenna said that Kaelyn has been rolling over by herself. That is quite a job for a baby of just 18 days old. Jenna said that her baby book showed that she was about 4 months old before she rolled over. Kaelyn seems too little to be rolling over. I had forgotten how little ones act I guess. What will be next, somersaults?

Bath Time

Today Emry had a bath. He seemed to really enjoy it. He was kicking his little legs in the water and didn't even cry. That is pretty good for being less than a week old. He is such a sweetie. He hasn't been out very much yet due to his age but soon he will meet more and more people. There are so many of Josh and Di's friends that are eager to meet Emry. They have heard all about him but are wanting to actually see him. They will love him.

Pictures Galore

We have taken a lot of pictures of our new grand kids. Some people take just enough to fill a small album but I like to take as many as I can. I already have four small brag books filled and plan on filling many more. I just don't think you can have enough pictures of grand kids. I know I will continue to take more as they grow. I have always been one that takes pictures of my kids and that will never change.

Night At The Movies

What movie do we want to watch? That is a big question that Josh asked us tonight. He has hundreds of them on DVD and I am sure he has seen them all. There are several that sound very good. Some we have seen already and some we haven't. I am not sure if I am in the mood for a romance movie or suspenseful one. I think Josh should decide.

Garbage Day

Every Tues. is garbage pick up day in our neighborhood. We don't have nearly as much trash as we used to. In our town we have to buy trash bags from the store and then we can put out as many as we want on garbage day. Lately we only have one bag compared to three or four in the past.


Sometimes we don't take the time to eat breakfast. I know that it is a good meal to have but there are days when we skip it and wait for lunch. I enjoy having cereal or toast and Bill likes oatmeal or fruit. We always have juice in the house too and we both prefer grape over orange. I think we will try to better at making sure we eat a good breakfast.

Gas Prices

The price of gas at the pump has really been climbing lately. It is kind of a bummer to only get around ten gallons for thirty dollars. That seems ridiculous and I really would like to know if there is a good reason for the increase. I think it is mainly political. Hopefully the prices will go down again soon. I know I am not the only one that feels this way.

Thumb Sucking

Some babies like to suck their thumb and some don't. I think that it helps the parents somewhat if a baby will suck a thumb but then you have to break the child from it later. When a baby cries very hard and is hungry it can be a big help if the little one will suck his/her thumb. I don't know if thumb sucking is any better than pacifier use. Everyone has their own idea. I guess it is up to the individual parent.Tonight Emry was sure enjoying his thumb.

It seems like we have seen more and more people on motorcycles this past summer. I think they are dangerous and have never liked them. I know that there are many that enjoy to ride but I asked Bill to promise that he would never buy one. Fortunately, he said he agreed with me.

Trip Of A Lifetime

Where would you choose to go if you had the opportunity? I have thought about that and I am not sure where I would want to go. There are so many places that would be terrific to see. I know people that have been all around the world and some of those places sound better than others. I think a cruise would be fun, especially during the winter months.

Weight Loss Surgery

There is a great site where you can read up on the latest weight-loss solution that is out there today.

It is a fairly easy and less invasive type of surgery, thus making it a less risky route to consider. Check out their site. You'll be glad you did.

Car Wash

This morning Bill took the pickup to the car wash. The truck hadn't been washed for quite a long time. It was so dusty from sitting in the driveway and really needed a bath. It looks for much better now. I don't think I would have wanted to drive it without having it cleaned first. I should say that I wouldn't want to ride in it because I have never actually driven it. Bill gives me a hard time because of that. He thinks I should drive it and see how much I like it. Maybe I will some day. Maybe not.

Online Coupon Site

With the holidays just around the corner what a better time to start making some purchases in advance. Have you considered what to buy and where to buy? I encourage you to check out a website that has unbelievable Coupon Codes that give you great deals. There are hundreds of merchants to choose from and the site is updated daily. Their site is so user friendly and full of awesome discounts. I enjoy shopping at Kohls stores and it is wonderful to have such great coupons to save on my purchases.

Car Detailing

There is a guy that Bill used to work with that has a car detailing business. He has increased his fee from $50 to $125. In large cities they apparently get several times that. He does a very good job and likes what he does. Some people hardly recognize their vehicle when he gets done with the detailing. He just does this work on the side right now but has talked about taking it on full time.

Through out my childhood I enjoyed watch Peanuts. They are so cute. Well, Jenna and I got talking about searching to see if I could find some of the classics. She did end up finding 6 different Holiday Peanuts. I think our grandkids will enjoy them along with Grampa and Grammy.

Junk Mail

We get so much junk mail! I get tired of getting it but I am not sure how to keep it from coming. From magazines to political stuff we get it all. I am sure most people get the same mailings in their boxes. Companies waste so much money sending all of that junk mail to people. We get loads of junk email too. I don't really know how people get emails and I realize that you can block some mail, but it is annoying to get junk.

Another Weekend Past

It is hard to imagine that another weekend is over. They go by so quickly, don't they? We had a busy time because we stayed at Jenna and Scott's house and helped with our new grand baby. It was so much fun. It is easy to forget how little a newborn is. I think it all came back to us pretty fast. Jake really enjoyed holding Kaelyn. I was impressed.

In the area of the state that we live in the temperature has changed quite a lot. Today was very warm and I know a guy that planned on golfing. For almost the middle of November this is pretty awesome weather. I hope that this kind of weather continues for a long time.

Zoe our bichon, has had a rough week. She is used to being number one. Now with the new grand baby, she is coming second and she knows it. She loves to get all of the attention and now that is just not possible. She can't figure out what this little baby is that is making all of these squeaky noises. It will be nice when she can get down on the floor with her and play. Zoe's still special to all of us.

Bill and I don't watch a lot of TV, but we do have a few favorites we try to catch each week. Tuesdays we enjoy watching House. The first season we really liked it and then last year we weren't sure we would even continue to watch it at all. This season, so far, we are back into watching. We'll see if they can keep our interest. House is not a very nice man and sometimes they carry it way to far.


I have always loved jewelry. If you take me by a jewelry store, I think I have to stop in and browse. Well, now it has been made even easier for me to admire some beautiful pieces.

WOW! I'm staying at my daughter's. She just had her first baby this past week. Kaelyn is so sweet. So last night there we were sitting down after supper when Scott noticed it was snowing. It was a beautiful light flowing snow. If snow can look beautiful. :) It softly fell to the ground. It didn't stick, I think the ground is still to warm. Not quite ready for that white stuff yet. I guess we don't get to choose do we?

Excited Pooch

Zoe, our dog seems very excited to be around the new baby. She has wanted to get right up on our laps and check the little one out. I don't think she would try to hurt the baby but she gets quite worked up trying to be close. Zoe smells and tries to give Kaelyn kisses. Even though Zoe is a small dog, although heavier than she should be, we don't want her getting all worked up and accidentally stepping on the baby. As Kaelyn gets older I expect that she and Zoe will be good friends.

Setting The Clocks

Apparently someone has a lot of pull. I mean, someone must have made the decision to delay setting our clocks back an hour from last weekend to this last one. Who can make that call anyway? Did anyone call you and ask if it was ok to postpone the clock set back? I am sure you know that I am just kidding and I really don't mind the change but it is funny when I think that someone must have made that 'big' decision. With all of that said, I hope you didn't forget to set your clocks back one hour this past weekend.

Tooth Aches, OUCH!

I have had so many issues with my teeth through the years. With having a lot of dental work done as a child it has only caused bigger problems as an adult. With the increase of lost fillings and broken teeth has also brought about some root canal procedures. I can remember once long ago, having some friends over for supper. I had worked all day and planned the meal and evening. While sitting down to eat I suddenly crunched down and my tooth gave way. It was instant pain. I knew that something had broken and could feel that my tooth was rough. The pain eased up, but I couldn't really do anything about the tooth until the next day when I could call a dentist. I wish I knew then what I do now. There is a product, Dentemp OS, it is an excellent quick fix temporary dental repair. This product is an easy to use dental first aid product. With no mixing or mess it can be applied with the vial. Not only is it strong but can provide a fast, temporary relief of discomfort and pain. With being FDA approved a person can feel better about its use. It not only can be used as a temporary fill but, also as a temporary cement for a loose crown.

Computer Glitch

Today at work we had a computer glitch. The problem had to do with the computer not having some update that dealt with day light savings time. I guess since the clocks were originally supposed to be set back this past weekend our computer somehow messed up. We had a technician update the machine and it is now working fine.

Sony 46inch LCD

When shopping for your next sony 46inch LCD TV you may want to check out the Krillion website. This company can help you in researching the best prices and even assist you in finding the location nearest you, where you may go and purchase the TV. TV prices seem to go up in cost and then with time they begin to drop down again. How is a person to know what and when to buy? When shopping for certain items today, most of us tend to check out the product and how much it might be, on line first. With so many different types of TVs and costs, it has become necessary for the manufacturers to compete by putting their products and sale prices on a site that would show the different retailers and manufacturers and what they have to offer. It is also advantageous for the consumer to have a one stop shop informational internet site. Check it out. It makes life easier.

Today was the day of elections in our town. I didn't get the chance to vote because I was out of town. Bill went to vote before he went to work. There were only a few things that you could vote for, including mayor, parks and recreation board and city council. Our town is like many others in that most people don't get out and vote. I know there are times when people just can't get to their polling places. I was one of those people today. I do think that,if possible, everyone should vote.

Busy Day

Bill got home from work today and told me that his day was very busy. He said he hardly had time to have lunch. There are days like that I know. I am helping my daughter with her newborn daughter and it was a busy day for us too. I really don't mind because I am doing what I want to do and the day goes by very quickly when you are busy.

Home Alone

I am sure you have heard of the Home Alone movies. Well, since I am helping my daughter and son in-law with their newborn baby(my grand baby), Bill is home alone. I even have Zoe with me. I am sure Bill will do fine. He is a good cook and will have plenty to do around the house. It isn't too often that we are not together but it won't be for long.

Payday Loan Quotes

Oil Change

I think that we are due to get our oil changed in our vehicles. The service place used to put a sticker in the window showing when the oil was changed. I wish they would start doing that again so it reminds me to have it done. Actually, it is Bill's job to do that. I hope that he remembers when it was last serviced. He used to change the oil himself but it is a hassle then to find a place to haul the used oil. It is easier to have someone else do the work.

Math Tutors

Raising three children I found that they are each quite different. Their interests very and the same holds true as far as academically. When they started in school we could see that each child excelled in different subjects. Math was an area that was more of a struggle for one of them. With Score Learning centers there is help available. It can make a significant difference when assisted by Math Tutors. They aid children from 4 to 14 years of age. It is a great learning tool. For the success of your child's academic future, check into these learning centers.

Life Is Good

Our daughter had a baby the other night which means we are now grandparents. Everything is going well and the baby comes home today from the hospital.

Our son and daughter in-law are going to have a baby boy any day and then we get to go and stay with them too. They are going to have a boy. Life is good.

Innovative Tutor

Every child is different and learns at their own pace. We all want our children to succeed in school and life. I have heard wonderful stories of how kids were helped in a variety of subjects by having the most Innovative Tutor available. Kids face a great amount of pressure to succeed in school and deal with a lot of competition among themselves. Whether a child needs to improve in subjects to catch up or if they desire to get further ahead even though they are doing well, SCORE learning centers may be just what they are looking for. Find out today about helping your child have fun as they learn.
