FB Fiend

Oops! I meant Friend, friend!!

One of my friends just posted one those memes, Who are your 7 dwarves?

I was her Grumpy.  I thought, Wow! How did they know????

Purplelinda is Grumpy Dwarf

Who me???

(Sorry for the bad quality of the picture.  I couldn’t get it to save the image, so I had to snap it with my phone, and it wouldn’t focus.  NO, it couldn’t possibly be operator error!!)

And in case you’re trying to figure out, “What in the world IS that??”  It’s my arm, covered with stickers, and PP‘s hand, applying more.

 

 

I’ve been Grumpy for a long time. Poor Mama was scared to come wake me up, cuz it was like trying to rouse a hibernating bear.  Lots of roaring, growling, and much showing of sharp teeth and claws.

And even now, though I have matured soooo much, {quit laughing!!} I’m still grumpy, when I don’t get a nap.  Or get woken up from one.

At least it’s not my name, like Judy’s husband!!   Lol!!  Poor guy!

Divorce Decision

With a pervasive sense of sadness, I drove to the courthouse, and filed my divorce papers.  

divorce paper

We’ve tried to make our marriage work, we just couldn’t.

The clerk couldn’t say how long it would take to have a court date. So, we’ll see….

 

 

Endings are always bittersweet.

Bitter, because I feel like a failure.   This is my third divorce.   What kind of awful person am I, anyway??   (The only saving grace in my mind is, the first 2 divorces were to the same husband.   No one can ever say we didn’t try!)

Sweet, because it will be a relief to just have it done, and over with.   Even as amicable as we are, there is always a certain tension.

So, on to practical matters.  For obvious reasons, DH will now be referred to as XH. (EX-Husband.)

We have agreed to remain friends, so he may still appear now and again.

My name will be changing again.   Not to my last married name, but to my first married name.  Since we have children together, with that name, and I was a Woideck longer than anything else, except my maiden name, Hawkins.

  My last married name, Sanchez, never felt truly mine.  Probably because he died of cancer after only 2 months.   And being a widow was so shocking, and painful, that nothing felt right.

 

 

 

 

And now a new chapter begins……

Hey, it says what I needed- (the first line anyway! ) AND- IT”S PURPLE!!

 

Beall’s Big Bang

I have a new fave store!  Well, department store, that is! Publix will always reign supreme, as the BEST grocery store in the universe!!!

is a uniquely Florida store.  I do believe everything in it has either a Gator, fish, flamingo, parrot or starfish on it!   lol

Anyway, last Tuesday, I talked DH into taking me, since I needed a wheelchair pusher.  (My scooter had a broken leg.)  And, while we were there, I convinced him to open a charge account.  Totally innocently!!   I didn’t even remember that you got an automatic EXTRA 20% for that!  (Well, ok, I lied.  I totally remembered, and that’s why I charmed him into it!!)

Since it was Tuesday, I automatically got the 15% old geezer discount!   Sometimes it pays to be old mature.

So, that was 20%, on top of the 15%, AND clearance was an additional 50% off!!!!

Can you say JACKPOT????

My purchases rang up as $300.  DH nearly stroked out!   But, I gave him mouth to mouth, and said “Wait!!”

The final total was $99 and change!   Yes, I did my happy dance!!   I also required him to bow down, and crown me “Queen of the Excellent Shoppers!”

(Why can’t I find a purple crown when I want one??   Maybe because I’m too impatient to look longer than 30 seconds???  Nah, that can’t be it.)

 

I can’t show what I bought, cuz some of the recipients read this blog!   Shhh!!

5 Photos, 5 Stories Challenge, part 4

Woideck family

Cute  family

This is my original married family.  My husband was stationed in Alaska, you might recognize it as the Arctic Circle.

My babies were 2, and 4.   Having our picture taken was a RARE event, as there were no photographic studios. 

Someone was taking photography courses, and set up a makeshift studio in their house.  Hey, sounded good to me!

Husband is wearing his mandatory ugly Christmas sweater, you’ll notice.   (I think he burned it immediately following this session!)  I was wearing whatever I could cram myself into, early cold, babyfat-she’s-only-two, style.

Look! I had hair!  Yes, Virginia, there was a long-haired Melinda!  (Out of consideration for possible hurt feelings, we won’t discuss husband’s situation.)

DD1 was wearing a pretty green velvet dress, early garage-sale.  DD2 was wearing the fancy-pants outfit that I made for DD1, when she was 2, and DD2 was still hiding out, inside.

I loved that dress!  It was 3 pieces, dress, pinafore, and bloomers.  The genius of it was, all 3 pieces for Christmas, the pinafore and bloomers for Valentine’s Day, and then the dress only for St. Patrick’s Day!!  

I had brains back in them days!  3 occasions per outfit, per girl.  Can’t get any better than that!

And I had it still, up until PP was born.  I was planning for her to wear it too, just like Mommy and Auntie.

But, I didn’t preserve it, and it got mildewed, in a rain storm.   Let’s not point fingers and assign blame, as to WHY it got mildewed, okay???  (Maybe because I had forgotten it was in a bin on the porch, but who’s to say???)
