Busy Hands....gather no moss
Or something similar. What Grandma J is trying to say is she's been busy.
Now that September is here, October is on the horizon...and that's a busy month on so many fronts.
Here's a rundown, give or take any unknown minor adjustments:
*Sgt John is coming home on leave from Iraq with just enough time to take grandma J to all the dinners and casino trips he promised over the last several months....and she has the emails to prove it.
*While Sgt John is home,
*Sgt John thinks he'll have time for a quick three day weekend getaway to Las Vegas with his bride...and Grandma J will entertain the grandchildren and JJ while they're gone.
I know what you're thinking....who cares about October? September is just starting, and October is eons away, so how busy can you be?
Well, I'll tell you. A-Ron went with Grandma J to the fabric store after his three hour baseball practice. She wanted him to help her pick out fleece to make some more blankets for the children in the pediatric oncology ward for Christmas. He goes with Grandma J to distribute them and we need at least twenty. Right now? We only have six.
I figured I'd let A-Ron pick out the fabrics that he thinks an older kid would like. Here they are:
Yeah, good choice! SpongeBob SquarePants with Patrick. The one thing that really irritates me is the price of licensed fabric. Not only is it twice as much, but you have several wasted inches of fabric with their warning on it. In this case.....thank you Viacom.
Oh, and SpongeBob...was this really necessary?
This was A-Ron's second choice! Ummm, maybe Uncle Michael would like this one. Once again, Thank you, Twentieth Century Fox.
Now, I thought maybe A-Ron could find something a bit softer....something a girl would like. He claims he doesn't go there!
But, I finally got him to pick this out. It's some kind of Disney stuff that has nothing to do with princesses or pirates. Once again, we paid through the teeth for the Disney name.
And who notice that Grandma J took these pictures on her stripped down bed? Yeah, it's because she doesn't neglect her chores, even when she's having fun. Nope....she's airing out her mattress while her sheets are in the dryer.
