One last grape squeeze...

before I head off for my mini vaca to see ETK and Cheekeymonkey......

First off, ETK did a great job talking about friendship that I think may be of interest to all. If you have the time, go read it. She says it very well. :)

the other day, Dad asked me what something was. I looked to see he was holding a Dime.
Dad: what's this? I found it but I can't tell what it is.
Me: That's a dime Dad.
Dad: A what?
ME: A dime Dad...you know, 10 cents....money...a coin.
Dad: A dime?
Me: yea....it's small and probably hard to see but that's a dime.
Dad: Oh.....a dime?....I knew it was some sort of metal but I couldn't figure out what it was. It's a dime?
ME: yep....want me to put it in your coin purse?
Dad: No....( looking confused ) I'll just put it here on my table until I figure out what to do with it.

:(....made me sad. His tigers and leopards are gone but he's getting more confused on other things.

Brighter note. Lovee and I went to see a movie Saturday!! Actually, dinner AND a movie. Woo-hoo for us. Date night!!!!!!!!
After we finished at the wedding reception, which I forgot my camera!! :(.....we had us some fun. We saw Road to Rodanthe. Gracious..........Kleenex was in order about half way through. Everyone was sniffing when we left. If you love romance stories...go see it. But, bring lots of tissues!!!!!! Richard Gere is a H.O.T.T.I.E!!!!!!!

I'm still so tickled about my Crock not a cock dianne ;) Gary the Potterman is so very talented. I'm thinking everyone may be able to find some gifts for Christmas over there. Be sure and check him out if you haven't already.

So,ya'll know about my trip to Chicago right? Did you also know that I don't like to fly? Nope...not one bit. Eons ago, when Lovee and I and the kids flew back from Japan ( we were stationed there for 3 years!!) we got all the way to St. Louis w/o any mishap. After our plane took off...maybe 15 to 20 minutes into the flight...the plane hit a wind shear. Seriously!!!!! I was sitting with my Sunshine gal and Lovee was with babyboy. I remember I had a death grip on the armrests and Sunshine was saying how pretty the lights on the ground looked!!!!!!!!!! Holy fucking shit was going through my grape We were headed for the ground!!!!!!!! Grab your ass and hang on was taking up too much room in the grape! Lovee and I yelled our 'I Love yous' to each other. Moments later the Hero ....our pilot...got control and we headed on into Tulsa. I've hated to fly ever since. Lovee won't be with me this time to keep my fears in check...but with the help of those little bottles ;).....I think I'll be ok. After all.........I found my Lovee in this lifetime.....I can find him in another if need be....right? right!!!!!!! He's my rock. I'll miss him awful....but I know us girls will have a blast! I mean, I'm finally getting to meet cheekymonkey.....who wouldn't be excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I heart my blobbies!!!!
I think about all ya'll all the time. Wondering what you're doing and how things are in your world....Hoping one day I get to finally meet every one of you.
I won't have my LT but ETK will so hopefully I can dictate she's my 'go to' galslave don't cha know and she will type a quick post to tell ya'll how much fun we're having!!!!! woo0hoo............

Enjoy your weekend blobbies!!

The flight will be just fine and you can enjoy a delicious cocktail while you wait to land. No worries.

Dianne said...

it is going to be a fantabulous trip!

I'll be in your carry-on. If you get really nervous just reach in there and squeeze a bit.

Awww... don't worry, those little bottles will keep you company while you fly. Be sure to have one at the airport first and grab some trashzines to keep yourself occupied. You know, reading about who's not wearing undies and who's knocked up again is TOTALLY distracting! I love you, can't WAIT for the squeezers!!!

I hope you have a wonderful trip. [Though, now you have me worried about the flight. I, too, quit flying.]

Maybe call the MD for a valium or two? Hmmmm. Guess it's a little late for that advice.

I sure hope your little sumthin' makes it to you before you fly out!

Happy Thursday! Happy Friday! Happy Weekend!

Happy and Safe Return!!!!!

:-)

I call y'all 'my blomies. That sounds really bad, which must be why i like it.

kcinnova said...

I'm a blobbie? Okay, I guess I am! Just don't use that one around my dh...he thinks blogging contributes to blobbiness.

Have a trip so wonderful that it is worth the flying!

Gary: we HAVE a crowuet set too!!! and the big yard to use to boot!! :) Ya'll come up now...anytime!!When Iget back I'll post pics of the backsplash and the kitchen...that'll show you the crock too!

FW: :( too late for the valium...so the adult bev will have to do...7&7 here I come..yummy!!Thanks for the well wishes gal! have yourself a good weekend too!I'll be thinking about you..cuz I'm sure my thingie is at my house...I'm just know it! :)

Meno: My Mom and Dad are the ones who started the blob word for blog, so I use the blobbies thing...they can't hear so they heard it wrong..teehee...However..I really like your blomies thing...cracks me up actually. I giggle when I think somethings a wee bit on the dirty side anyway...I'm just silly like that. :)

KC: Blobbies sounds silly so I like it....cuz I'm just silly myself. My blog..er..blob is my outlet for venting..so Lovee supports it. thank gawd...I'd go nuts w/o it or he'd get an awful earfull everyday listening to me whine.:) Thanks for the thought...It WILL be worth the flight...
