Today was a long day, and at 8:45 I'm finally sitting down to rest.
I go into work early on Tuesdays, around 5:45, and by the time I'm home at 4:30, I'm beat! Today my son and daughter-in-law needed me to take my seven-year-old granddaughter to her "cheer class" so they could both attend the Padres game tonight, so I just now got home. Go, Padres!
I picked her up on my way home from work at 4:00, shopped, fixed her a quick dinner of scrambled eggs, bagels/cream cheese, grapes, and chocolate milk with ice cream for dessert. Weird dinner, but she liked it and ate every bite. She played with the Wii for a little while, then we went to class from 6:30 until 7:30.
My grandkids are all so great, but seven-year-old girls talk constantly. You know what I mean? Even when they don't have anything to say... I asked her that old question, "Do you know why God gave us two ears and only one mouth?" I think she got it, but it didn’t work. Too subtle for a seven-year-old, she didn’t get the hint, and kept on chattering away. Whew!
When I was in grammar school the nuns (Catholic School) used to call me "Chatterbox," so I can't complain too much. My granddaughter probably gets it from me! : ) And actually, I’m grateful she has so much to tell me, and wants to tell me. She’s such a happy, bouncy little girl, so bright and self assured. As only a seven-year-old can be.
Thankfully I was only watching – she went non-stop for an hour, and was tired at the end of class.
Changing gears: I joined this website, NaBloPoMo, have you seen it? I saw a link on another blog, and clicked it on it, and ended up at nablopomo.com. If I’ve got it right, you only have to blog once a day for a month, then you get to put a button for that month on your blog. Well, I love prizes (doesn’t everybody?) and that seemed like an easy prize to win.
I've gotta tell you, it isn't easy today, I was ready to turn in when I got home. Anyway, if you look at the end of this page, you'll see the "I'm a Member of NaBloPoMo" button. I assume it's an okay site, I didn't do much looking around when I was there. I just want the prize!
September’s button is really cool. Here it is, but I can’t really claim it yet.
When I do, it will go on the sidelines or at the bottom of my blog. It’s only here for informational purposes. And because I love it.
So... even if it's only a line or two, I'm posting every day this month.
And that’s it for now. From Me and My Dog, have a nice night, everyone! : )
