Heartbeat day!

Today is going to be very exciting. I get to hear my grand baby's heartbeat again!!!! Ryan is going also. He promised Stephanie that he would. He will probably feel a bit on the 'weird' side but I think that once he hears it he will be amazed. I might be wrong but I don't think so. So you can bet that I'll be wearing a smile on my face for the rest of the day and the next day and the next day and the........oh sorry. I get a little carried away when it comes to this sweet thing coming into our lives.

Otherwise things are going well. Work is good and steady. I have been very moody lately but after yesterday I must say I am quite proud of myself and how I handled what could have been an emotional situation. Joe and I met at the bank to cash yet again another check that came in both of our names from the old house. I wasn't rude just was to the point. Into the bank, handled the business and out the door for me.

The fence at home is complete and the girls could NOT be happier! It turned out really looking good. Privacy on both sides and an extra high chain link at the back so the rest of the yard can be seen and feel the openness of that huge backyard. I must say that it warms my heart to no end to see them finally being able to run and play like they used to. This weekend is supposed to have some decent warm temps so I am hoping to spend a lot of time out back with my girls. I love them so!

Ok, I have to brag on Steph. She made fried chicken for the 1st time for dinner last night. Boneless chicken breasts (not pounded but thick like you get them at the store) and it was delicious. I didn't learn how to fry decent chicken until I was in my 40's so needless to say I was impressed. That along with carrots, green beans and fried taters was really good. I don't eat much fried food at all lately and I plan on keeping it that way but Ryan wanted it so she made it. She told me that she is glad that I showed her a lot of cooking tips as she has grown up. Apparently it sunk in! Now don't get me wrong, she has made plenty of most delicious meals lately. I was just really impressed at how well the chicken came out.

I am having a hard time getting out of my wonderful Sleep Number bed these days. Oh my goodness.............why did I wait so long! Probably because the store just opened recently and it wasn't cheap. Worth it but not cheap! It is honestly helping my back feel much better. I still have pain from the bulging disk but at least I am able to sleep through the night with no pain. Don't think I can ask for more than that.

Life is good!!!

Yay for fences!! I have five grandkids and I love them all! They bring out a side of you that has been hidden for many moons, and some you were never aware of :-)

Glad that all is going well. And I am sure that the girls enjoy running around now that there are fences.
