Monday Morning

Monday Morning Blues seems to be the feeling most have on Monday mornings. I don't mind them too much other than it is the start of the work week. Monday is actually a day off from most of my work though. I don't have the grand doll and I don't work at my caregiving job so I only really have the house work and my Pink Zebra work. It can be overwhelming as well though.  My husband went to Dirty Turtle Off Road park over the weekend in Kentucky so I have a sack of muddy clothes to be tended to today. Wonder if he would notice if they went in the trash? LOL! I know they must be washed. I also have curtains in the bedroom to be washed and I would like to finish going though some of the clutter I have accumulated in the bedroom. I need to start working on some of these projects I have said would get done in the last 5 years before I start more.  I will probably starting sorting Christmas décor out and trying to decide what I will truly use this year. I have so many snowmen a

Saturdy 9: Alfred Hitchcock

Saturday 9: "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" Theme This week's song was chosen because this is the last Saturday 9 before Halloween. Are you unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here . 1) The Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, was born in England. Name another pop culture contribution England has made. A. Elton John. 2) This week's song is recognized as the theme to Hitchcock's long-running TV show, but "Funeral March for a Marionnette" is a classic piece written for piano in the late 1870s by Charles Gounod. Do you often listen to classical music? A. I will occasionally listen to classical music when I am home alone.  3) Janet Leigh's shower scene in  Hitchcock's Psycho is considered one of the scariest sequences ever filmed. What's the most frightening movie you've ever seen? A. I don't like scary movies. I remember watching a show once with my grandma about a lady that owned

Halloween Party

Halloween truly is not one of my favorite holidays. I don't like being scared and I do not like haunted houses, zombies, blood and gore, etc. It just is not my idea of a good time, but I do like the fall aspect of it and some of the creativity that goes along with the costumes and fun times that are to be had this time of the year. Last night my grand doll had a Halloween party at the studio where she takes gymnastics. She was going as a witch but she would not wear the hat that was part of the costume. ( I can't be mad as I hate hats as well.) My daughter had not bought anything to decorate the car with as it was a trunk and treat as well, so off to town we had to go. We need the preparations for the graveyard taco dip that we were making and we had to buy decorations. While there, I decided that I wanted to dress up as well. I dressed as a witch as well. Only my outfit was a little different than hers, as I decided to go with a black outfit and green face while her outfit w

Grand Doll Surgical Update - Our Road With Blount's Disease

For many of my readers that have followed the story of my granddoll and our road with Blount's Disease and her surgery, I finally have some news worth sharing with all of you. On Monday, we made the trip to the surgeon and expected to hear the same news that we have heard for almost a year now, " Looks good". We did hear those same words, but I am also thankful to say that the surgeon stated that we will be back to see her in Feb. and that we will discuss taking the pins and plate out of the right leg. Woo Hoo!!!! The left leg still has some straightening to do, but the right leg looks almost perfectly straight on the x-ray and the surgeon stated that she believes that it will be ready to remove the hardware and allow the leg to grow on it's own and that she should continue to grow straight. The left leg has made a tremendous improvement but we still have some time with it. I am thrilled! The surgeon says that she is hoping for a full straighten on it as well with t

Saturday 9 Love is In the Air

Unbreak My Heart Welcome to Saturday 9 . What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!  Saturday 9: Unbreak My Heart (1996) Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here . 1) Songs like this are enduringly popular in part because each of us has had our heart broken. Give us the name of a heartbreaker from your own life. Joe 2) Toni Braxton sings that "nights are so unkind." What did you do last night?   Fed our new cows, laundry, made dinner, and watched television 3) While this song has Toni singing the blues, in real life her love life is happi
