A zillion . . .

I have a zillion things to do. Or is that a bazillion?

Yet here I sit, just wanting to blog.

Yesterday my mom put her house up for sale. Whoa. Big step. Overwhelming step.

... Ah, but the visit to the "Gracious Retirement Living" of that retirement place, with the visiting of those happy ladies, and measuring the apartment to find out that, yes, the harvest table DOES fit (!), made it all exciting!

I, of course, had to ask, "How old do you have to be to get in here?"

Turns out that is one place for which I'm too young .


I'm ready!!

Different note completely: My little girl is getting married July 17.

The way time flies that will be here in about 3 weeks!

She and Ryan have set up a website on THE KNOT.

As the mother-of-the-bride I think it is okay (or not?) that I give you the link to their site. Click HERE for that.

(They want you to know the website is a work in progress.)

(And I want you to know that I will try not to be too pushy in their wedding plans... and life. . . even though I did just give you a click to their site.)

Please let me know, everyone, if I'm saying too much.
(I never have to worry about saying too little.)

I hope your mother is very happy in her new place - it's been a wonderful thing for my Great-grandmother. :) I'm sure it will be for your Mother, too!

my dad has designed a lot of retirement living centers, and some of them are just SO nice! Like a parked cruise ship! I want to live in one myself ;)
I'm sure Laura is grateful to have a wonderful mother like you to help her plan her wedding :)


For today I'm reminiscing about my childhood. I had this fella! (Well, one that looked exactly like him.) I called him "Muncle - li...
