One For Our Side!!

I am so thrilled. You know, I never knew someone retiring would make so many changes in a family!! LOL There are just so many little things that change...and they are all good. I just wasn't aware of them!!

But Jim said something the other day that was really nice! Since I have been sick with my muscle weakness he has done the lion share of all the household jobs. Cleaning AND cooking. but now that he has retired he does virtually all of it and is loving it. He has become a house husband!! LOL But what got me was that he said that he never realized how much women do around the house that goes unnoticed. He said never did he imagine!! You know, ladies, cleaning silverware trays, keeping fingerprints off of things, cleaning the carpet around the baseboards, cleaning the computer keyboards of gunk!! You know all of them. He said there are so many things that were always done that he never really realized someone had to have "done" them. Men just don't think that way. He said he thinks every man should be a house husband for a month!! LOL So...now there is one more on our side!! We are appreciated!!!

Oh. Gotta tell you this. Funny. He had just swept the living room floor. And Zoe, our black dog , is shedding right now. He came back from picking me up for lunch and stopped in the living room, looked at the dog and said to her, "I just swept this floor...and look at it already!!!" There were blobs of black hair already on it!! LOL I said. Gets to you. Doesn't it?  LOL He just shook his head in disbelief!!! LOL Less than an hour and hair on the floor already!!!
I started on a new LayOut but haven't got it done. It is one of my dad and I want it to be exactly what I want. Have gathered all the pics but stumped how to get the journaling on. I am done with all the work I have so I think after lunch I will take another look at it.

Get to go celebrate Braisen's, our grandson's seventh birthday this weekend. Can't wait. I haven't seen them in so long. Hope to get some cute pictures to post. Haven't had any new pics for a long time.

Other than that, nothing really going on around here. HOT! It is hot!! Just can't please us. When it was cold, we complained. When it is hot, we complain. I guess if we wanted nice we would move to the Carolina's. Starting to get some rain, though, and that is nice. Just so we don't get the terrible storms. I see there is a storm below Florida already and it might move into the Gulf. Not good. Will have to keep an eye on it. Then on top of that, what will it do to the oil spill?  Don't even want to talk about that. I am still too upset about it!!

OK. That is about it for this post. Going to go check blogs and see what is happening in the warehouse here. I am sure I can find someone to irritate. That's OK. They expect  it! That's how I keep them away from my office!!! LOL You know...sort of like if you can't take the heat stay out of the kitchen.

Later my peeps.
