Finally I am "home" from being with the grandkids and my daughter the majority of the day. I even got to sneak in a visit to my dear friend Jeanne and to see what wonderful things she has done to her house! It has been a busy day! I have church bulletins to prep and then beddy bye land... ahhh... taking at least the oldest grandson to the library tomorrow. :)

Yet another busy day. Started with a trip to the "Frugal Flamingo" found the boys a Spider-man bed set for $12, had lunch with youngest grandson, friends, and daughter. Lunch lasted longer than I had planned, had to delay a visit with friend Billie (and to see her new house!) until tomorrow. Cleaned / organized my son's kitchen drawers & cupboards. (I’m collecting stuff for the yard sale already!) My daughter, youngest grandson and I went to a friend’s house so she could show my daughter carpal tunnel exercises. We went to yet another friend’s for a birthday BBQ. Took clothes to oldest grandson at other grandparents and spent some visiting time. How does each night end up with me getting home at 11:00?? The oldest grandson gets to go rabbit hunting with Poppa tomorrow. He is SO EXCITED!

I was getting ready to post about yesterday when for whatever reason the Internet went down... figured it was God telling me it was simply time for bed! Yesterday I had a pretty lazy day. I went to visit my friend Billie, to see her new abode, and her family. After which I went to "the other Grandma's house" (my oldest grandson's other grandma). We sat and crafted together. I did my beading (the first chance I've had since I've been gone) and she worked on her scrap booking stuff. We chatted and shared our grandson together. It was a very nice and relaxing day! I then took my grandson home (he had spent the night at Grandma and Poppa's house) so his mom (my daughter) could see her son before she had to go to work this morning. I stayed for dinner, my son came over after he got off work and had a shower. We then left so Vellora could get the boys to bed. Vincint and I proceeded to play his Kinect for a bit... we both got pretty worn out pretty quickly as we're both pretty out of shape.
Vincint and I went to go see "Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows – Part 2" before he had to go to work night shift, about 1/2 hour into the ,movie something happened to the projector or some piece of equipment. They told us that they'd get it fixed as soon as possible, but they did not know when that would be... we therefore decided we needed to go and get our money back as after watching the film Vincint would have had only a few minutes to finish getting ready for work. So we still have not seen the movie! We then went to the dump to take the last of the boxes and trash from cleaning out the sheds. After we returned home Vincint laid down and took a nap and I started packing.
Vellora and the kids and I went to dinner (our 'last supper' before I leave) and then went to the carnival that is in town. Every time the youngest grandson got on the ride he didn't want to get off when it was done. We had to drag him off crying from each ride he went on. But then of course as soon as he saw another one he got all excited all over again and could barely wait for it to stop so he could get on the 'new' ride! LOL After a couple of hours of carnival the mosquitoes started attacking in full force... so we left and went to Vellora's house to get the kids to bed. Grandma read her last night night story to the boys before leaving town.
I am sad to be leaving tomorrow... yet I will be glad to be getting back home to my hubby, my bed, my own pets, and my own house.
