I had to take a pic of the screen again. sigh

I was so excited, to plan this party, and celebrate her birthday properly!!   Last year, her parents didn’t give her one, so I had to make up for 2 years in one!

So, being the savvy budgeteer that I am, I went straight to the Dollar Tree for all the supplies!

{Ooooohh, this is making me mad!!  The copying captions thing.}

Pretty, and prudent!   Can’t beat $1 each!   Thank God for the Dollar Tree!


AND, I wanted this pinata from Save-a Lot SO bad!!!!

Pink & Purple Party Pinata!

But, I didn’t have $17 extra.   And after all, who needs a pinata, when you have this???

Centerpiece, well, pic of a centerpiece! I was too lazy to set it up just for the pic!

Of course, some might be disappointed that they can’t swing at it with a bat!

The cake would be the most important, to me anyway!!    (Wonder where I can find a GF bakery in town??)

Then, PopPop blew me away, by coming over with this!!

PP’s very own pink and purple “cassel”!!

As you can see, she’s already moved in!   She was ecstatic when she saw her very own “cassel”!!!!


My little princess was pleased with all the pink and purpleness!!!

(A birthday party IS a holiday, right??!!)

Omie ‘Omage

Number 1 thing in my life, is my love for, and my relationship with Jesus Christ, my Savior. So, actually, number 1 is not a thing, He’s a person!

Being an Omie (my grandmother name) is the 2nd greatest thing in my life!   So, actually #2 is not a thing either, it’s 2 people!  Tied for second place in my heart!

Being a wife was #2, until my girls were born!    Then, they were #2, until PP was born!!

Today, I’m paying ‘omage to being an Omie.

I just never could have imagined how becoming an Omie would affect my life.   Becoming a mother, profoundly changed my life.   Becoming an Omie, changed it again, by a thousand!!

I always heard people say that being a grandparent was so much better than being a parent. It’s hard to believe, because being a parent is so wonderously incredible!    But, seeing that grand baby’s face, for the first time- unimaginable joy!!    Times a million!!!     Then, to have that joy doubled, by a second grand daughter, just makes my heart full to bursting!

The stress is less, because I know I’m not completely responsible for them!   {One reason parenthood is so terrifying!!}    But, all the joy is doubled, because the child of my body, now has children of her body!!    Just so amazingly loving!!

I look at those sweet little faces, and all I want to do is stare at them so hard, they’re imprinted on my eyeballs, just like they are imprinted on my heart!!

And kiss them and hug them till they know they are so precious, and loved!!  (Or, until I’m satiated, whichever comes first.   Hint, it’s not me being satiated!!)


I feel like I can do anything in the world, be anything for them.    (Even when my body says “Oh no, you cain’t!!   My mind still thinks, “Oh yes, I can!!”)

If you have grandchildren, I ain’t tellin ya nuttin you don’t already know!   For the rest of ya, just wait.   When it’s your turn, then you’ll know too!!

Graphically Gross Grooming

   Really, Melinda must you be graphically gross about grooming??   What is it now, a shower for the smooshed roach??

Well, I’m sorry to be gross, especially graphically, about grooming, but I have a problem.

   What’s new??   You always have a problem, of some sort or another.

Well, it’s like this.   Sometimes, just sometimes, not always, when I’m toweling off after my shower, I catch a whiff of a ..  How shall I put this??    a whang.

What???   I know I have a lot of acreage to cover, but, really????

I have a sprayer head, so I know everything gets all wet.   I use a wash rag cloth, and soap even!!

slob, humor, sprayer head

Sprayer heads are the bomb!


I go over, and over the exact same spots, as many as 3x, the recalcitrant spots, that is.

So what gives??   How in this world can I still be overtly odoriferous??

But the nose knows!!

Sprayer heads are the bomb!

(WHY does it do that with the copying the other caption????

{This is as far as I’ve gotten, with this draft.   I haven’t solved the mystery yet.   And, I don’t even wanna think about it anymore.}
