A Date

   I am going on a date.  He's tall, 6'3 and I think handsome in a rough and furry way.  I have my face done up, and I only wear makeup for very special occasions.  My favorite scent, rain zen, yummy.  Now I just need him.

   Yup, Rick and I are going out on a Monday date night to celebrate his birthday.  Also we are combining our anniversary which is on the 3rd because we don't know if we will be able to get away twice in a week.  34 years!  Wow.

    Rick can barely walk his back is so bad but I think a nice bottle of red Zinfandel  will sooth those sore muscles.  I am trying very hard to lose some unwelcome pounds so I plan on a small steak, broccoli and a salad.  Yummy.  And wine.

    On the first is my MIL's birthday.  She is going to be 86.  I really didn't think we would be celebrating it this year.  She amazes me.  She doesn't want anything but also loved flowers so I am getting her some very pretty ones to enjoy.  I told her I would cook anything she wanted to eat.  She can't come up with anything though.

    Work was good last night.  I talked to my boss to see how closely I was treaded to a warning for missing work.  I have worked with her for years and she is being very good about not giving me a bad time.  She understands how hard it is to predict something like this.  She understands that if I have to lose me job to do be it and I don't think she wants it to come to that.  Me either actually.

   Actually.  That was my grandsons favorite work.  I actually would like some milk gramma, Actually I would like chocolate in it also.  Actually maybe strawberry would be better.  I miss him so much already.  I miss my son.  I was upset his last day he spent with his wifes relatives that get to see him alot more often then us so we parted with me being cranky which I can get when I am tired.  Next time the other relatives can fly him out.  Right!  Specially when money is so tight right now.

   Well, I have to take the dog out before my date comes.  I feel like a teenager again, LOL.

I hope you don't have to lose your job through having to look after your MIL, doesn't seem fair. I can imagine how you're missing your little grandsons smile, hope you get to meet up again soon. Have a good week! Jeannette xx

What a beautiful rose Rick gave you this time Julie.  Perfect!
Just like your love for each other.  Thirty four years...we will be married forty next year. It seems like yesterday.
Happy Birthday to your darling Rick and to Betty too.  Nordic women are so strong!
You are going to have her forever!
I hope you don't have to loose your job..please God it doesn't come to that!
As for your son and his in-laws....I sometimes feel the same as you with my son and his.  They live nearer to him and he has even said absent mindedly 'our family' when he talks of them to me.  That can hurt.  They live far away too so we don't get the chance to see them as often as we would wish. But...there you are...
That's life I suppose.
I could do with a great big juicy Aberdeen Angus steak with a side salad and fries.   I will be with you in Spirit as you!
Have a lovely evening together.
Jeanie xx

THAT is a pretty rose,and I love that color! Hope you enjoy that quality time, and I know all to well how it is to miss the kids and grandkids...we have to make the most of the moments...and scrapbook! I've started one for each of my grand kids, just find it hard to make a date with myself to work on those kinda things. Take care! Love2U
