OK we were behaving…..for the most part. lol

It was a good time on Saturday. The weather held off so we could be outside. It was such fun, two of his sisters, his mother, aunt, uncle, daughter and boyfriend and my daughter with 3 children (including baby Willa) were all there.

Willa was in the BEST mood too. She was laughing and giggling and having a grand time. So was Gary’s daughter. She snitched her from everyone. Francis was just loving spending time with Willa. And Willa just loved her. That was so nice. Francis was practicing for her niece in Nashville this coming weekend. lol…

I can’t wait to do another party. Hoping one day to have all 4 of his sisters there and all 5 of his kids. THAT would be a party!!

First of all….thank you to all of you who listen to my blatherings. I like that you read me…..I started doing it mostly to get thoughts out of my head. They were like a train on a round track going around and around and around….well you get the idea….and I got NO where trying to heal. Listening to y’all with your advise and experiences …. has helped me put many things in perspective.

I can love again. I can have a new relationship. I can do whatever the hell I want. Itzamazing!

And most importantly? I can still love him. I can still miss him and I can want him here with me for as long as I want to.

Nick and Sue benefit

…and I will.

I feel a hangover coming on…..

Capt Rum
Gary’s sister is coming in from the Milwaukee area. His daughter is coming in from the Madison area.


Taco bar and appetizers. I have to stop for groceries tomorrow night. I enjoy putting on these parties. I like to cook…..I just have to¬† figure out what I want for appetizers!appetizers.jpeg
I LOVED this one from back when….And since we are doing ‘Mexican’ I think this, and my homemade salsa is perfect. What do y’all think?
This stuff is so good…..

I’ll let y’all know…..in pictures…..lol

What is going ON today?

I’m just feeling down. I need to mow lawn when I get home. I slept through my 6am alarm today. Why am I feeling so damn frustrated and irritable….get a grip.jpg
Don’t go there…

Gary and I are fine. Although because I’m not, little things he unknowingly does, irritate the piss outta me the last few weeks.

It may be because I’m not going to Italy this year. I usually fly out Aug 8th. Ya. That’s gotta be it. I’ll be using THAT excuse.

Matteo and I have been chatting again after the long silence of FINALS! He passed with flying colors as usual (That’s my boy!). I really miss that young man………

Marghe needs to come visit as does Earn. I miss my foreign children. *sigh*

Tues is Mon ugly sister
I hauled ass home last night because we were to get 70mph winds and bad storms. My Mustang was under the one Maple that likes to shit sticks and branches during that type of weather.

We got rain.

And not even HARD rain.

Just rain.

North of us by an hour or so they had apple size hail.

An hour south of us, Val had an uprooted tree.

We got rain.

Just rain.

Finally….I don’t have to spend 2 days cleaning up my yard.

Sending prayers to those that did get hit tho………………..dayum.
