February 4, 2008 - Monday Before... Current mood: warm Category: Life Before my husband came into my life (in no particular order): I didn't make my bed in the morning. I didn't have a "human" alarm clock. I didn't get up on time or go to bed at a reasonable time. I didn't plan meals. I didn't sit down to eat dinner. I didn't watch golf. I didn't go to Wall Mart I didn't have a mattress warmer. (No really, it's electric) I didn't know when the holdidays from school were (now I can't wait) I didn't have left overs. I didn't have any grandchildren, now I have two granddaughters. I didn't travel as much, and I certainly didn't unpack as soon as I returned home. I didn't know how to be quiet in the morning or in the car. I didn't have so many flowers in my yard. I didn't park my car in the garage. I didn't have anyone to share the household chores with. I didn't drink wine with dinner. I didn't have anyone to send mushy, romantic cards to. I didn't have short hair and didn't realize how much tme it would save. And I didn't smile nearly as much 11:19 AM - 1 Comments - 2 Kudos - Add Comment - Edit - Remove
I am blessed to live in San Diego. People come here for a vacation and I get live here all year long. I taught 2nd grade for 43years and retired in 2013.I still volunteer in a 2nd grade at my school every Thursday. I have two grown daughters that are a very important part of my life. I am married a wonderfully patient man with two daughters a son and two granddauhters, and we live with two very entertaining cats. While I enjoy champagne at a wedding or special occasion , I do not need alcohol to have fun and it is never an option if I am upset. I truly can find joy in simple pleasures. I do not drink coffee, I am so blessed to take care of my youngest granddaughter once a week. She calls me Gamma and Bill is Popi. Hearing her say her names for us brings such joy to my heart.
