Excited to see my daughter and her family. She has graduated so I can just give her the boxes from Christmas and money to help them start out. Of course when they find a place I am just dying to buy her something very nice as a house warming too :} More than likely from Potterybarn, Horchow, or QVC. They have been my favorite shop spots the past year or so. My 4 yr. old grandson will have a blast in the dog's house. Jim worked on it for Father's day and Paro's birthday weekend while I made watermelon coolers, orange sorbet, and ground up rib eyes for hamburgers on the grill. Maybe we can get him a little chair and they will let us get them a puppy while they are here. We will do the roof in brown with brown trim and Jim still has to cut the dog bone window out and lay some sod. Of course the painting and gardening with dog friendly plants will be last (I had to plant some for now so I could maneuver around the patio without using a GPS lol).
My step dad came out last weekend too. I tried to spoil him as much as possible and enjoyed his company. I sucked him for all I could on his gardening knowledge lol. He and my mother inspired me to grow climbing roses, butterfly bushes, purple crepe myrtle etc. like theirs. Now I have sooo many and lost for what to do with them. A lot of them are already planted on the front 3 acres but a bit apprehensive with the behavioral deficient neighbor running lose :/ What neighborhoods do they tell their kids to go ride their AV's in the neighbors yards and not theirs anyway? Oh well...I've been blogging about doing the gardens and of my plans. Not like it's anything new lol. He'll just have to pay for what he runs over and I'm not going to let him stop my plans nor wait for him to find respect of other's property. Some people and things are a bit slow here. Ok. Maybe a lot lol :D
And I'm dumb too. To trust in others thinking they will get something right or believe their word is good. But to lose faith in our county...ohhhh brother! That's a scary thought. But really...we haven't gotten much better and releasing the terrorists is several steps backwards, a waste of all that money towards war that put us in an economic crunch, and made us more vulnerable.
But kudos for this town for cleaning up the hospital in the time we have lived here as well as getting the first practicing doctor AND commercial! That's progress. Nice to see we aren't going backwards there. And if Obama can tear down what we have worked sooo hard to do in obtaining those responsible for the 9/11 attacks....maybe we can reverse this Obama care mess and move forward when his term is up. Of course I am still waiting for us to undo this Corporate America mess we've been in since the 80's and the thought of another 2.5 yrs. with him is depressing. Like all this rain we've been having. Only sunshine for 2 weeks so far this summer. Or working sooo hard on this place in the house, removing trees, growing plants and grass only to have another set us back? Dear Lord I need an hour on a couch with someone intelligent (and not a nurse who says she is a doctor :l).
Maybe we will get to put it in reverse by renting this place and moving out of state. Or country lol...now that my husband's work is international?!? Ahhhhhh. What a lovely thought :}
Now to put it in drive and let Horchow know that not only FedX is hapless, but that China is slipping too. Still :/
*UPDATE: Horchow is not only replacing it by shipping one out now but they are also sending someone out to pick the odd one up so I won't have that long drive to the nearest FedX! :D How awesome is that for service?!?? :))))) Never goodbye to service like that ;) ~sigh~ :}
