Yes, I DO Still Blog!

Even though it's been 20 days since my last blog post (but who's counting?), I do still blog.....honest. I've just had so much going on in between going to the Nascar race, going to a Tigers game, working, gardening & working out that I've badly neglected my blog.

The Nascar race was great.....the weather couldn't have been any better....perfect sunny skies & cool temps. When we found out that our neighbors were also going to the race, we decided to caravan down together. They had pit passes, so we figured we might as well go into the pits, too. And I'm so glad that I did as I was able to get 5 autographs on my shirt (the one I'm wearing above) from Kasey Kahne's pit crew :) Jim got it autographed by Kasey at work a year or so ago (on my booby, of all places, lol) so I knew I wanted to add his pit crew autographs to it.

Every year, our church takes a trip to a Tigers game & this past Saturday, we went to that. I was able to have my granddaughter for the weekend (again :) ), so we took her with us. We had an awesome time & the Tigers beat the Brewers 9-5! YAY!

I have LOTS more pictures, but don't have the time to post them all right now. I've been having some major issues with my computer lately & I'm half afraid it may be on it's last legs :( Plus I just had to replace my modem this just completely stopped working last night. So I'm praying that my computer isn't next cause we just can't afford a new one right now!

Well, I gotta start getting ready for work. Hope you have a wonderful week!

Another Birthday Baby

Today, my oldest, Shawn Michael, turned 23. If I didn't feel old enough from having a 5 year old granddaughter, I definitely feel old now! Dang! It feels like just yesterday, I was 23! What the heck??? 23 years ago today, on June 2, 1986, I delivered this little boy (okay, so maybe he wasn't so little.....he weighed 9 pounds, 7 ounces!). Here's a picture I took of him today with my granddaughter. I have LOTS more pics (170, to be exact, lol), but for some reason, my Paint program is messing up & it's taking me forever to resize them. ARGH.....what's up with that anyway? First, the program that loads my pictures onto my computer stopped working & now, it takes forever for Paint to open. Darn Dell!

It looks like I'm going to be able to spend another night with my granddaughter :) Shawn talked to Toni & she agreed to let him have her until tomorrow, but since today is his birthday, he wants to go out & party, so I get to keep her again :) Off to pick her up in a few, so I better end this here.

Signed: A VERY happy grandma :)
