TGIF. Almost. I made it. Again.

Heck-Yeah for Fridays.

Do you think if we did not have Fridays to look forward to each week, that we would still wake up everyday? Yes, I suppose we would, as bed sores are not a pretty sight.

::checking thighs::

Thank you all for your kind words in regards to my Grandma. So many sweet folks out there. Come on in, lets have a group hug. awww. isn’t that nice? I feel the love, don’t you?

Grandma was ready to go. really ready. And she usually takes a loooonnnng time to get ready for anything. Her nickname has been Lightening since I can remember. And not because she is fast either. Yes, my family is plagued with sarcasimitis. Is TOO a disease.

I saw her a few hours before she left us, and I think she was already gone. Does that make sense? There was a peacefulness in her.

The week before, she and I had a long talk (well, she was in and out of reality) but she looked me straight in the face and said: “Suzanne, will you just shoot me and get it over with?” I said: “No Grandma, I will get into trouble for that.” Her straight face reply: “I’ll never tell”

She had her sassiness right till the end. great grandma

What a peach!! Why can’t everybody be as funny as her????

How lonely would it be, to have outlived all of your peers. Well, now she has them all. I am hopeful those old ladies up there have their depends on as she tells them all whats-what.

She kept telling me she wanted ‘this’ over with and to head up to heaven. I kept telling her God was getting her place all set up for her, and she must be patient and not complain too much. No one wants a whiner for a roomie.

I have no regrets when it comes to my relationship with her. I am so happy I was able to spend as much quality time with her through my life and especially these last few weeks.


In the midst of saying good bye to the best darn Grandma on this planet, I was also looking forward to THIS weekend. One of my other favoritest peeps is getting married. Yes, favoritest is a word. My word.

My handsome, smart, funny as heck, army hero cuz Chris is getting hitched. Yep. Sorry ladies, he is off the market very soon. You had your chance. see what lazy gets you? Now all you can do is visit E-harmony or If you like, I will set up a nice profile for you. free of charge.

lil' ChrisCan you picture this little fella in his Army Captain Uniform??? SWEET!

You know how I love weddings!!!! And I love seeing my family!!! This will be a 2 for 1 deal. Buy one treat, get the second free. Don’t ya’ love a deal?

Pictures to come. Maybe. Possibly. Definitely.

I wish for you all a wonderful weekend filled with silliness, happiness and no sappiness. Alright, a little sappiness is allowed.

Love your family. Hug your people. Phone a friend.

Live with no regret.

Regret causes wrinkles and you know we don’t need any of that nonsense.

Have you any regrets this week? If so, get it off your chest and save money on face cream. There you go, another two for one.
