Why is it that the older we get the faster time slips away? When you're a kid, a day seems like a lifetime, like it will never end. Yet at almost 55 I go to bed and wonder where the last 24 hours went, and the worst part is I have nothing to show for the lost time!
Yes, you guessed it, I'm in a creative slump again..I've managed to sketch a few things out, and I am slowly working on my EHAG "Tombstone" project..LOL
I am planning a Surprise Birthday Party for my Grandma's 90th Birthday on July 2nd. My siblings will all be here (1Brother & 3 Sisters)...All of whom are neat freaks...I am not..LOL
So all I can think about is getting my house in shape and our pool ready. Of course the pool pump broke just before we went on Vacation to CO..When we came back the pool was a beautiful shade of green, so working on that to get it crystal clear (which I've not yet achieved) has been all consuming, for those of you with pools, I'm sure you can feel my pain :).
My Grandmother is quite a Hoot when she's in a good mood..LOL..I'm hoping she will be surprised and that no one will spill the beans..I am lucky at my age to have a living GrandMother,
and while I appreciate that fact, I am also responsible for caring for her. She lives alone still..
but gave up driving a few years back after she had 2 accidents in 2 weeks and the second one , was when she had her SUV in reverse, hit the gas and smashed up my Sisters Van :)...So I take her to appts, etc. I don't mind this..but you never know what will come out of her mouth..LOL
She's the only almost 90 yr old that I've ever heard use the "F" word on a regular basis..:)
and she's very loud, She could NOT whisper if her life depended on it..LOL..So many times when we leave a Dr's office or other appt., I am red faced at something she said about someone in the office..
I admire my Grandmother very much..She lost both her children to Cancer. My Dad was only 49 when he passed, and my Aunt was 56 when she passed. I don't know if I could go on after losing my children, but this woman braves ahead everyday.
She called me one day and said " I'm sorry I'm not the Warm , fuzzy kinda of Grandma, but I do love you"...and that is about as tender as she knows how to get..So her words meant alot that day..
I guess what I'm saying is I want her Party to be special...At 90 yrs old, I appreciate every day I have left with her :)
