Bad Blogger!

It's Friday!  I'm hooking up with Mrs. 4444 for Friday Fragments.

First of all, blogger isn't letting me leave comments at all this morning so that stinks!  The really sad thing is that I'm not sure if it's blogger or me.  Anyhow, I'll be back later to leave comments......wondering if he (of course blogger is a he when it's messing up) will let me link up today.

Today is my brother's birthday.....Happy Birthday Tommy!

Good news!  The superhero and I are still walking every nite after work and I'm starving myself  dieting so I've lost four pounds in the last several weeks.


Bad news......I seem to be seeing my cousins only at funerals lately.  I do love seeing them, but I'd rather it be at a family reunion!


Hardest lesson ever learned........I can't fix my adult children's problems.


The bathroom remodel continues and soon I'll be showing pictures of my new and improved master bath.  You know how you start remodeling and you find more and more that needs to be done?  Yes, that is happening.  It's like the new makes everything else look bad.  But the new will be so nice!


Yesterday afternoon when we were getting mama to go to the funeral visitation, she looked at me and said

Are you and the superhero in love?

I said of course, mama, I love him so much.

She said......well, does he love you?

I replied, he adores the ground I walk on! 

I have no idea what makes her wonder about that.


Go over to visit my new friend Elisa and buy her books.....I've just finished ready The Golden Sky and it's a great read!  She has a new book out that I haven't read yet, but I plan to soon.   You will love her writing style and you'll laugh and cry.....both excellent emotions.


I'm printing my blog slowly using which seems to be awfully difficult for me.  Not sure if I'm just too challenged or if it's a hard site to use.  It certainly isn't user friendly to this user.  I want my blog in book form so I can look back over the years and my children and grandchildren can read my thoughts.  


O.K. friends......once again, I'm all fragged out!

I heard someone else mention that this morning. They are always fooling around with something. Wish they would just leave well enough alone!
Happy Birthday to Tommy, have a great day!
((HUGS)) on the funerals and fixing adult child problems.
Love your mama's questions.
Have a nice weekend.

Such a good point - we can't fix our adult children's problems - a good lesson to learn! Congrats on the 4 lbs - yay yay! I think that's great that you and Superhero are walking at night. We're getting ready to take the cover off the pool so here we will be back to swimming every day! I want to report lbs down, too!

I'm glad you are still walking! Just so you know it is effective. I lost 110 pounds walking and using Herbalife. I'm not even kidding. If you do Herbalife you are never hungry. Only diet I've ever done that ever worked. Happy birthday to your brother and my mom ask me weird stuff like that too! As for Elisa she is AMAZING! Not just as an author but as a person. i should know she's my best bud. No seriously she is haha.

Honey, we're in that stage of life where we will only see our cousins at funerals.

I, for one, am just mighty glad to get to see them!

Some day when I have lots of free time, I plan to put "My Funny Dad, Harry" blog into book form using Blog2Print. (After I go through and edit out the posts I don't want to include.) Maybe by then, it will have improved!

We are almost ready to tackle our bathroom remodels. I think I have most things chosen. Now just need to get the carpenter to commit to a start time. One thing definitely leads to another. I agree that parenting adult children comes with its own set of challenges! I love your momma's question! Heading over to amazon to check out your friend's book.

Printing your blog! Oy! I'd not thought of I'm intrigued!

Another blogger who I follow also reported that she's been having issues with being able to comment. Strange.

I can't wait to see your new bathroom! We remodeled the kitchen and the bath at our old house, and I loved it! The process and the finished product! ;-)

But why can't we fix Adult children's problems?? Grrr! I worry about stuff like that, and am thankful mine are still young and I can fix most things with alot of help from the BIG guy upstairs. Good luck on the starving diet. I look forward to your new bathroom too! Peace and balance ;0)
