Partying with the EX!

Today was my youngest grandson’s 6th birthday. It was a swim party at his other Grandmom and Grandpop’s house. My father and my son went too and drove together. She lives about 20 plus miles from us. Not a bad ride. Mainly on back roads.

I got there and the first person I see is my ex-husband and I had said “hi” no big deal, but he must have said “hi” to me 3 or more times.  I don’t know if he didn’t hear me or what. Thanks heavens he didn’t start his usual conversations. I have to pretend to be nice so we don’t cause drama, he just plain thinks we are still friends. I am still pissed at him, so I always have to pretend. Thankfully he spent time talking to my dad. And then got in the pool with the kids and I didn’t have to deal with him at all.

Ever since I found out about his narcissistic tendencies I have been even madder at him and feeling sorry for him at the same time. At least I didn’t have to deal with “HER!” 

It looked like rain in the morning, but the afternoon got sunny and hot and I got crankier and crankier. I hate the heat. And I hate parties. No one every accused me of being a party animal.

No more birthdays for awhile. Mine and daughter K2 are in October so we have a while and we usually don’t do anything big for the adults.

I have to take a nap now before diving into 1900 emails – oh my!


The Love-Hate Challenge POSTED BY HBHATNAGAR

The Love-Hate Challenge


I nominated myself. I love these things.

The rules are simple, name 10 things you love and 10 you hate, end by nominating someone if you want to (this is HBHATNAGAR’s rules and fine with me, hate nominating people myself)

I love:

1. Cats when they aren’t yowling in my face all day. I feed her, she eats, she had treats, what is her problem? But I still love her.

2. Writing

3. Reading although so far nowadays all I read is blogs. LOL!

4. Being able to lay down when I feel like it which is often.

5. Having brunch with my best friend every Saturday.

6. Eating, food is my comfort, but the bad kinds of food and I am doing better with eating the right kinds of food. I ate all the fruits and veggies in the fridge (no waste) even though the veggies did a number on my tummy.

7. Book stores.

8. Being alone

9. Coloring even though I am an adult, I am a kid at heart and love to color.

10. A warm, sunny spring day, not the hot days we are having now.

I hate:

1. Rowdy crowds of kids.

2. Thunder storms.

3. Abuse in any form.

4. People who go off in bad rages over unworthy things.

5. Fantasy books, movies.

6. The telephone although I have a smart phone that is smarter than me.

7. Anyone who cuts me off on the road

8. Arguments

9. Putting cream or oils on my body or hands, yuck!

10. Babysitting any age child.


Day Ten: Build a Better Blogroll – Blogging 101

This is the end of week 2. The assignment was:

Today’s assignment: create a blogroll to share a few links you love.

I added the “Blogs I like” at the bottom, but I can’t choose them. They chose them for me.

I also have 2 widgets, I don’t know how to get rid of. Great!

Assignment done, not perfectly, but I do have a list of blog faces on there now.
