It's a Boy!!!!

Tonight Tami called after her sonogram at the doctor's and she is having a boy! She was somewhat upset as they wanted a girl but the most important thing is that he is healthy and so far everything looks good. I will love him as much as each and every other grandchild that I have and look forward to her shower and the birth. Now, I can buy blue yarn to start his baby afgan as I have done for all thirteen other grandbabies. I'm excited!!

This weekend was busy. Saturday I put up my winter clothes and took out my summer clothes and shoes. I need nothing - I have plenty of clothing for the warm weather. Now, just have to lose a few more pounds and I'll be happy.

I spent the rest of Saturday afternoon with Colleen and Carson - outside under the sprinkler for awhile. Meghan and Will came over for alittle while and I finally got to give her the baby afgan I had made for Will. She seemed to really appreciate it. After they left, we went to Walmart and then I ate supper with them.

Sunday afternoon, Colleen came and picked me up and we spent the afternoon at Jenn's. The kids played under the sprinkler - all seemed to have fun. It was hot and I did get some sunburn. I do need to spend more time in the sun to increase my Vitamin D deficiency.

Today, I stayed home from work - did not feel well at all. I didn't sleep well and I think I had a fever. May stay home tomorrow also, depends on how I feel in the morning.

Till next time.....

Surprise, Surprise!!

It's been a while since my last post - no excuses - just haven't had the time. However, this past week was a busy one. Cheryl and Tami made a surprise visit to SC. They arrived last Monday and to say I was shocked is an understatement. Unfortunately I had to work except for Friday but I enjoyed their visit none the less. Tami stayed at my house for three nights and it was so much fun to wake up in the morning and have her and the boys down stairs - all asleep on the living room furniture. The boys sure are growing. Cheryl stayed at Colleen's house and poor Matthew had an allergic reaction to the cats or the pollen or both. Wednesday night, Cheryl stayed at the Marriott and then Gregg joined her for the next two nights. Tami and Marc stayed the remainder at Colleen's house. The cousins all got along so well. Carson and Matthew played together so well. We met TJ and family on Thursday night at Fatz in Gaffney. I picked up Carson from day care as Colleen had a meeting. Friday we spent a few hours at Hollywild, even though most of the time it rained, we still had fun. Cheryl had to leave on Saturday night and Tami on Sunday night. I miss them all so much!!!

Easter was a blessing even though Cheryl had to leave and TJ was unable to make it. We celebrated at Colleen's house. I did the meal preparation and desert - the girls took care of the snacks. Everything tasted so good. The weather was perfect and the grandchildren had fun looking for eggs outside. Then they hid the eggs and the adults had to find them. Good time had by all.

Back to work yesterday. Tired as usual tonight.

Till next time...
