Has it really been almost 4 and 1/2 months since I posted on my blog?
So much has happened!
Mom had carpel tunnel surgery on both wrists last month!
My brother, Jeff took her for the first one and I took her the second time!
Jeff will be taking her to the doctor tomorrow to have the bandage taken off!
Today would have been Mom and Dad's 57th anniversary!
We all miss him so much!
Amelia's baby sister, Sydney is due in November.
She weighs 4 lbs. 13 oz. already!
Life is busy with work, babysitting, etc.
I've been working on getting yard sale stuff together for the Hwy. 411 yard sale going on this weekend. Marty has my stuff with his store stuff and he and Sara are working it!
So far, I've made close to $90!
Not bad for not having to be there!
Starting this week, I will be babysitting Amelia every Tuesday for Erin to go for her doctor appointments! She has to go twice a week until time for Sydney to be born!
Today I am trying to get laundry caught up and get some cleaning done so that I can get the house decorated for Fall!
I love the Fall decor! It makes me happy!
I'm also making a pot of chili and some cornbread!
With this cooler weather, it seems like the perfect meal!
Fall is in the air!
I love it!
Guess I had better get back to work!
See you next time!

Amelia had her first dentist appointment this morning.
Erin said that she did well.
I met them at Chili's for lunch.
I had a great time chatting with them & sharing my potato soup with Amelia.
After lunch, I went to Kohl's to but socks for my hubby.
And then I went to Starbuck's and got a venti Caramel Ribbon Crunch frappacino.
I usually get hot drinks, but decided to try cold instead.
It was good, but I still prefer my hot latte!

Apparently, the business of life keeps me from keeping up my blog posts! 
So, here are some highlights of what has been going on.
In mid February, we were snowed in for a few days.
Marty slept at the store for 2 nights, so that he could be there for his customers.
I was home alone, having some me time.
In mid March, we took Eric, Erin & Amelia to Phoenix, Arizona for a family vacation.
We had a lot of fun!
I'm having trouble figuring out how to upload pics from my IPad to the blog.
When I learn how, I'll post some!
The day before Easter, Eric & Erin hosted a dinner for the grand parents at their home.
We got Easter cards from Amelia. Inside, it read, I'm going to be a big sister.
We were told it was to be kept a secret until Erin's Dr. Visit in May.
But, now we can share it.
We are very excited that in November, we will be Poppy & Nonna once again!
On May 7th, Amelia turned 2!
She is precious! We are having a blast playing with her!
She is so smart!
Her pediatrician told Erin that it has been a long time since he saw a two year old that is that smart!
I give Erin credit for that! She is very diligent, teaching her new things!
And, Eric too! He has been teaching her to swim since the weather has been warmer.
She is learning fast!
This coming Saturday, they are having Amelia's birthday party.
Looking forward to a fun day!
I'll close for now & posts more pics when I learn how!
I'm not known for my tech savvy!

I didn't realize how long it had been since I posted!
I 've got some catching up to do!
Just so you know, I'm still around.
I'll try to do some major updating next week.
Too busy today cleaning & planning.

Hey y'all!
Life has been busy so I haven't taken the time to blog!
Eric & Erin will be closing on their new house at the end of the month!
Nonna will be doing a lot of babysitting when they start moving!
Marty & I are adjusting to life without his Mom!
We are enjoying spending time together alone!
Amelia & I went to Fairmount today to surprise Poppy at work!
Erin was able to have a few hours for herself!
Tomorrow, I will be spending most of the day sorting coupons and planning shopping trips!
Hopefully, I can work in some time for menu planning too!
I need to get as much of my work caught up as possible so that I'll be ready for all that time Amelia & I will be playing together at the first of next month!
And speaking of work, that is what I must do!
Time to get off the laptop & get to work!
See ya soon!
As I leave you for today, I'll post another pic of Amelia's trip to Athens in July!

I have been working myself to death over the past two weeks since my
mother-in-law moved out!
But, I've just about gotten caught up with the basics!
Friday was Eric's birthday!
We babysat Amelia for Eric & Erin's date and then we had birthday cake when they got home!
Johnny & Pam came up from Athens to spend the weekend so, they were there for cake too!
Eric & Erin came over for a little while today!
I got to play with my angel!
Tomorrow, I'll be babysitting for a few hours!
Love spending time with my little doll!
Now, I think I shall go to bed!
I'm exhausted!
Good night all!

Our nest is officially empty as of July 14th!
Lamar's mom moved to her daughter's house!
We didn't try to stop her when she made this decision.
I really did need a break, after caring for her for 12 years!
I pray they will take care of her needs! She is in God's hands.
We can only pray that He will take care of her.
Now, I have a lot of cleaning, de-cluttering & organizing to do!
I'm already exhausted, but I feel like I've accomplished a lot in
these last 3 days!
Eric took Amelia to Athens over the weekend to a GA Bulldog
charity event!
I'm posting a pic of them with the "Hairy Dawg"!
The weekend before, he & Erin both went to Athens to visit her Aunt & Uncle.
Here is a pic from that trip.
Amelia is eating a fried dill pickle at Hershel Walker's
restaurant!
Well, I guess it is time to get back to work!
Hope you all are having a wonderful day!
