I just looked at my blog and realized it has been 11 months since my last post. I don't know if anyone even reads this, but it is fun to add to the blog occasionally just for my history. Not much has happened this year. Well, I guess I should start with why I even looked at my blog page. My son Brian just sold me a notepad. It is an HP. I'm excited, don't know about Hal. Anyway, I needed a gmail address and so I tried to remember my address. I didn't think pickin2gogranny was a good email address, so I changed it to something more normal. Well, I will continue this later.
Sunday, Oct. 23
Spent the day resting from yesterday. It started Friday with Brian's sons. We had a sleepover then off to a soccer game. Home after lunch and a new toy (the notepad) and then Eric called to see if his children could come visit. Of course they could come for a while. Jace is the newest grandson. He was born in Aug of 2010. He just started walking. He has had some serious moments, but not from walking. He was born with jaundice and this caused trouble with us and his mom and dad. They felt we abandon them in their time of need. May be we did, but I just couldn't stand for the way they wanted us to care for the girls. We are the parents, not the children, This stand we took changed how I react to Joanna and Eric. The other serious moment came when a dresser fell on his head. He was about 5 months at this time. Joanna called me to come meet her at the hospital. Thank God there was no major damage. I think it was more of a scare for Joanna then anything. Apparently, Jazz opened a drawer causing the dresser to fall, Jace was between the drawer and piece of furniture. Oh, I didn't mention that this was at 1AM in the morning. Well, Jace walks and talks now. He even runs around chasing and teasing his sisters. Julia started school this Sept., so the kids now go to bed earlier. Jazlyn is finally talking and smiling and I can see her advancing.
