Stayed up way too late last night listening to the Outlaw Hours on a local radio station with my husband, my son, and one of his friends, who seems to be a fixture at our house, but I really don't mind. We had a really good time just hanging out, listening to the music and singing along with all of the songs that we knew. Pete even got the guitar out for a spell and both he and Philip played for a few minutes. It's an awesome feeling to have such a great connection with your child. I don't know what I would have ever done had I not had Pete in my life. He will be 19 next month and that is a sure sign that I am getting nothing but old. EEK!
This picture was taken a year ago at Megan and John's wedding. Speaking of which, I totally forgot to tell them Happy Anniversary on here, and also thank them for being such great parents to our 3 grandchildren. I don't know what we would do without you guys. John is the greatest husband and father and Megan could not ask for a better person to be in her life.

I don't know if any of you have read one of my long ago posts titled "Advice for the Holidays", which you really need to read, but now I have something more to rant about! I don't know what it is, maybe the hot weather, too much company during the summer, too many cocktail parties at the lake, but LADIES, when you have an "accident" please try to get the bulk of the stain out before you send it in for cleaning. I know, I know, Time Rules My Life too, but let's pay attention to what we are doing here. MEN, if you also have an accident in your drawers, just throw the damn things away and go buy yourself a new pair of pants, and I am not talking about urine here! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is what I have dealt with all week long! Is there a full moon or something? If you don't want to deal with human excrement, what makes you think that I or any of my wonderful employees do? I know I am griping, but I'm just trying to keep it real.
OK, enough of the rant! I'm glad that it has cooled down a little from the extreme temperatures at the beginning of the week. I still haven't risen early enough to get back into my routine! Told you so! I bought a skirt! Wow! What a boring person I am!!! PEACE~!

The weekend is approaching! WOOHOO!!!
To everyone in Idaho, I miss ya'll!!!!
To everyone here, I'll see ya'll out and about although I am somewhat of a recluse these days!
Barb, where are you?
Samantha, where are you? Oh, I guess heading to Idaho right?
I might run away this weekend! About 30 or 40 miles is all, but heck, who knows, a southwest chicken panini and a bottle of Nooner sounds pretty good right now.

Now how's that for a treasure?
I also need to start walking again, but it's too damn hot here! Especially after working in temperatures equal to the depths of hell all day. I need to do a lot of things, but I have also come to a depressing realization that they just are not going to get done!
On a more cheerful note, had a really good time at Philosophy Gallery last Saturday evening just visiting with friends, and we probably overstayed our welcome. But, you know how it goes when you get to talking! That is the only time that Time Does Not Rule MY life!
Wesley is finally getting his two front teeth, or so he told me on the phone!
I think that those people in Sweden kidnapped my dear neighbor, as I have not seen her since she returned home!
I am still trying to plan a little summer party/get together which will include Sangria, but it's just too damn HOT!
My husband is watching some show about RATS on the History Channel! GROSS!!!!
I miss Michael, Ashley, Gavon and Grace!
I have become addicted to Confessions of a Pioneer Woman! That's probably why I haven't posted because most of my computer time is spent reading her blog and her recipes and looking at her photography!
Had my mouth all set for some rhubarb pie, but don't know what happened to it! heehee!
Reading a pretty good book called Sharp Objects!
That's all for now folks! PEACE!
