Life Comes At You Fast
Yesterday, Grandma J tried to avoid the subject of birthdays, but someone always let's the cat out of the bag. Then the fun begins with a barrage of wonderful gifts, emails, blog comments and cards full of birthday wishes. The door bell never stopped ringing........oh wait, Grandma J doesn't have a doorbell, but she does have ringing in her ears when she gets overly excited.
So let me personally say Thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes for many more years of good health
Here is a taste of what the last half of the day was like. Because the first half was spent lounging in jammies and playing Bejeweled.
Once Grandma J got moving, she picked up her granddaughter for her eye appointment and new glasses. These glasses remind me of the ones she wore in second grade.
Then it was off to pick up the mail....and look what Grandma J got.....
My Colorado cowboys, Ty and Zachy, gave me this really cool gift card to the movie theatre!
The picture is one of the three of us in San Antonio Texas just a few weeks ago! It says: Happy Birthday, Grandma Deluxe
Then it was off to En Fuegos for a TexMex dinner with my daughter and grandkids, who gave me this special surprise.
I love getting huge chocolate covered strawberries! Yes, I shared...everyone got just one.
Thank you, pretty girl for the wonderful dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant. I appreciate all you do even after a long day at work. Oh and A-Ron...peek-a-boo, I see you!
An extra special treat was reading all the funny comments about Spam! I have to tell you, the one that cracked me up the most was the one by Hollywood (who doesn't have a blog). I'm copying it here because it's just too funny:
Spam...bad childhood memories. haha. I ran away when I was 5 to the neighbors house w/all my underwear and record player because my mother was making Spam with lemon juice squeezed on it for dinner.
