It's hard to believe that I have been back home long enough to be going on celebrating Christmas with my granddaughter for the 3rd time. With all that I lost and all that I left behind............these 3 years with her have been the most precious. The first two years of her life we sent packages every other week or so...........little presents so she would know who her Neena and Poppy were..........but I do the same with my grandson since he lives so far away........and he really doesn't have a clue who sends him presents...........course he is only a year old........I guess I can't expect him to be the super genius smarter than all the rest of children his age...........I mean my granddaughter already is..............but grandson.........he is at the 95%........but I am sure that like my granddaughter...........he too will become the smartest most gorgeous grandchild there is...........

My granddaughter is going to be 5 in a few days.........and although I have not bought everything in the stores..........they are a little emptier than they were and she not only will be the proud owner of all of the baby alive dolls but a 4 ft. stuffed Woody doll from Toy Story............that was a bitch to find............. I remember when my children were growing up I set a guideline of what I could spend on each and than I took their list and I searched high and low hoping to find what they wanted that I could afford. Those days we didn't have ebay, amazon, or one of my favorites Woot.com...........I wish they did when my children were growing up as I could have bought them just about everything they wanted. Of course some of the stuff that they would have asked for then............wasn't even developed in those days...........the Ipods, MP3 players, the dvd players.........or the thing that is the most important to them...........glued to their heads......or fingers..............the cell phone. Hell you can figure out just about what era a movie came out by cell phones...............you know BC.........Before Cell? If only Bruce willis would have had a cell phone to call for help when they were taking Nakatomi Plaza building, if only Julia Roberts would have had a cell when she needed medical assistance instead of passing out just as her hand touched her landline, If there were no cell phones Joe Smoe wouldn't have been accused of sexting and sending naked pictures to Jenn Sterger and neither would Brett Favre. I also wouldn't have to constantly tell my daughter if you are going to continue to drive my vehicles you will stop texting and driving............hell she aint that good of a driver when she is paying attention Cell phones can be a bigger pain in the ass than a convenience.......................

Until I get that sound that tells me I have a text message and there is a picture of my grandson ripping the wrapping off the birthday presents we sent him, or dressed up for halloween..............When i hear the ringtone that is set for my daughter and pick up the phone and hear my granddaughter saying when you coming home neena I miss you............when you ask where her mommy is and hear she is in the bathroom you have to giggle that she stole the phone again I like the thinking of you and Ill call you in a minute texts........knowing that my honey is thinking of me in the middle of the day...............AND i love the fact that i can message someone when I am not really up for a full conversation..........but I am betting Brett Favre is thinking cell phones were the worse invention. lol

I am not up to a lot of the new fangle things they have..........and am perfectly happy with that.............but the computer and internet those are by far the top 2 I am thrilled we have today.........hell with my disability..........theres not a lot I can do ........and I always seem to find something to do on the computer............and email.........wow..........isn't that the greatest...........we talk to old friends more than we ever have............family stays in closer touch............and we no longer have to wait for pictures.............snap load send...........and grandma is holding a picture that daddy took of grandson playing in the mud............and if you dont think email has made some great changes..............look at our past election........emails were going around about voting against the incumbent............and that made a hellava change............people did it.........especially in MN .........Oberstar was making his I won again for the 50th time speech an hour after the polls closed and by the next morning he was probably setting there shaking his head going WTF happened? and he was out............Of course I am not saying its all because of emails.............but word of mouth goes faster now by a long shot...........and although it may not always be a good thing..............I think it can be.

Anyway getting back to my granddaughter..........we are having a birthday party for her next weekend.............I have painted a Bullseye..........(from Toy Story) for them to play Pin The Tail On Bullseye (donkey), I have made a mat for bean bag toss, I have ordered a few other games. I have made her some stuff for her dolls, diapers, t-shirts, blankets, sleepers.............the whole works.......plus all that I bought her.........it will take her a good 45 minutes to open all that stuff..............but some of it I am saving until after everyone goes home as it is craft supplies and I do not want anyones hair cut with glue and glitter put in it.......... but it is just one of the many reasons that I am happy to be back to Minnesota even tho another winter is coming on..............lol

I was sitting at the computer last night............bored and thought I would see what was going on with my friends............and realized not to far into it that there was some drama going on...........to be honest I didn't even bother to go in search of it to see what is going on............I figured if it keep going I would eventually figure it out or someone would tell me or i would continue living in my own personal fog............all of which are OK by me............

I need to start writing again.............I am going to a writers group once a month and its great spending time with people who love to write as much as I do..........but I want to take stuff that I have written recently instead of what I had written in the past so I need to get my butt and mind into gear and write................and you guys always have kinda been my muse.....................so I am hoping to start posting blogs here...........some i will be able to take to my writers group some not............read them dont read them..........print them out and let the cat piss on them..............don't make no never mind to me..................

But its good to be back......................

Hey there, stranger, it's so nice to see you back, Dayna. Welcome home!

Well welcome back Dayna!!! Glad to see you're back with us. And I'm looking forward to reading your blogs. (don't suppose you would do at least a half dozen Reviews now would ya? ) No? Ok, don't blame ya.

I've often told my parents that it's too bad we didn't have a lot of these "toys" when I was a kid growing up...but then, I have to wonder...would it have been a waste of money for my parents? I remember when they bought the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) for my sisters and I for Christmas. Yep, while we were snowed in, it was great entertainment...that damned Mario Brothers...game frustrated the hell out of me! But once the warmer weather was back, we were out the door for the day, and that NES became a dust collector.

Then again, there are a few times I can think of back in my younger, wilder (and not so smart days) where a cell phone would have been a big help.

And yes, I love the email era...I know the post office doesn't. But I love how fast it is, and today, don't have to wait for the picture to be sent snail mail, just snap, upload, attach, and there's the pic all under 24 minutes.

Again..welcome back. About time our favorite sheep in red heels returns.

Welcome back and I can't say that enough...can I give you a kudo for just being back? Hell yes I can!

So anyway...you sound happy and content and for that I'm happy too. And speaking of grandkids....I'm a new great grandma again...little boy born in October and oh so cute 'n cuddly.

I'm moving next week to a lil town 15 miles away and I'm so excited...long story but my life is just gettin' better 'n better.

As for disgruntled bloggers? Yeah....I just move on and have not much of a clue what all the uproar is....I'm happy and don't have time for all the drama.

So anyway's....good ta see you back. Now maybe I'll have some good drinkin' coffee material to read...

Good to see you back on here

I have already told the grandkids that Christmas is going to be small from Grandma this year. I found out that they were ok with that and more understanding than I thought they would be. It would be nice to buy them whatever they wanted for birthdays and Christmas but just isn't going to happen. Funny that I do not remember my kids being that understanding when they didn't get something they wanted.

Half the time I couldn't tell you where I left my cell phone is in the house. It rings and there is usually the mad scramble to figure out which room I left it in. If I am on the bottom floor then you can bet it is on the top floor every time. I like having all the modern "toys" but sometimes they really do no make life easier or better.

Heyyyyy... great to see ya back Dayna! Very nice blog for starters too!

It's hard to believe that I have been back home long enough to be going on celebrating Christmas with my granddaughter for the 3rd time.

That reminds me, is there such a thing as a Santa Sheep?? I thought maybe you just might have a pic laying around somewhere for your profile during the holidays... perhaps with your wool fleece dyed red [with white trim of course], four black boots and a red hat with white trim plus a black belt, would set it off- just a thought!
