Thursday Night Update

It's Thursday night and I want to report that I stayed home all day and actually got a little house work done today.  I also found an unused scrapbook, in a closet and used it for all my lovely retirement cards and pictures, etc.  There's still lots of room in it, so I may continue putting all the pictures I've taken over my 25 years of working at the hospital in this scrapbook.

Yesterday (Wednesday) I did make a trip back to Wal Mart and was able to get the black version of the beige sandal type shoes I got last week.  Now, I'm all set for summer.  Next week I'm taking my grand daughter tank top and summer sandal shopping.  She says she needs at least two new tank tops and 1 pair of sandals.   What 14 1/2 year old girl doesn't like to go shopping for new clothes & shoes ?  

For once in a long time it seems I'm hooked on a current TV show.  I still watch re-runs of M*A*S*H, Everybody Loves Raymond and Seinfeld and I love them.  But there aren't many current shows (except for the morning shows like Regis & Kelly, The View and Ellen) that I care for, except.......Deal Or No Deal.  I've decided I love that show !!!  It's so exciting and the people are so overwhelmed with whatever they win (except for the guy who ended up with $75..he was kind of bummed out) .  Anyway, I've discovered it's on the Canadian Channel on a different night than the U.S. network, so I can watch it one more evening each week.

I know most people who read my journal also read Jeannette's Jottings. But if you don't...Jeannette shared some sad news with us today, news of being diagnosed with breast cancer.  I hope everyone will pop over and lend your support and wish her well.   She is a very sweet lady and this has made me so sad all day.  She is one of the first journals I read, when I started journaling in May of 2005.  Blessings to her and her family.

Well, it's almost 11pm and Gabi keeps coming and giving me the "Mom it's time to go to bed look."  So I guess, I'll grab my book and head down the hall.   Until next time.......Linda

We get the British Version of Deal or No Deal over here with Noel Edmonds as the host.  I am addicted as well. I find most people get greedy and instead of dealing for a quite handsome amount of money they go on and end up with next to nothing!   I like to think if I went on the show I'd be less greedy and walk away with more, but who knows how any of us would really behave!  it's eash to sit in my comfy chair and say I would do it better!  I heard abour Jeanette and have left my well wishes on her journal.  Take care and God Bless,
Marie

So glad you got to go back to the store and get those summer sandals!  I can't wait for summer to be wearing sandals.  That sounds fun to go shopping with the granddaughter.  What a nice grandma to take her shopping!!!!  Scrapbooking makes me think of how many things I have to put together into books for my children.  Hugs and have a great weekend.

I too have a 14-year-old granddaughter, will be 15 very soon.  I don't get to see her enough but when I do she totally lights up my life with her enthusiasm and sweetness.  I bought my hubby the MASH collection for Christmas.  Now he watches a MASH episode every Saturday and Sunday  morning before I get up (he is a morning person, I am the night owl).  Yes, I was very sad for Jeannette too.  She and her family will be dealing with a lot in the days ahead, and I pray for their strength and her speedy recovery.  Have a fun time shopping with your granddaughter!
