Sometimes You Gotta Pig Out

For some strange reason, I've been craving Golden Coral.  I know, crazy, huh?  Who craves that?  I guess when It's been a while since I've had any "home cooked" food, I start craving it.  But it's not really like Golden Coral is home cooked food, but you know what I mean.  

So yesterday, all by myself, I went to Golden Coral.  And I must say, it was wonderful.  Where else can you go and eat fried chicken, meatloaf, fried shrimp, rice and gravy, sweet potatoes, coconut pie and bread pudding?  The only problem was that after all that food, I wanted to come home and take a nap.  So that's what I did.

 I don't know if it's the pollen or the time change, but something's got my motivation in the toilet.  I have no energy and no desire to do anything productive.  All I want to do is be with Grant or be in Buford having fun with Suz.  I have soo much work to do and absolutely no desire to do any of it.  Do ya ever feel like that?  But then I tell myself the old saying, time enjoyed wasting is not wasted time.

And besides, when this little guy lives 10 minutes from me, how am I supposed to think of anything else???

 Last night we went over and sat with him for a couple of hours while the kids went to eat.  I tell ya, there's nothing in this world like this boy to me.  I mean NOTHING!  And when I see Jeff with him, it reminds me how sweet and good he was with our boys and it takes my heart and turns it into a big ol' pile of mush!

 Just look at that!

Jeff's mom and her sisters and brother went out for lunch yesterday to celebrate Sonny's 71st birthday.  They have incredible genes and are so blessed to still be together.  The oldest sister is 91.
Bless them.  I remember when I first met Jeff, and for years later, Jean and her sisters could run circles around me.  There was nothing that one or the other of them couldn't do.  Need a seamstress?  Got one.  Need a cake?  Got one.  They cooked for their families every single Sunday and their families were HUGE.  And shop?  Honey, they could out shop even me!  And that's saying a lot.  They don't do any of that now, but they still get together to celebrate each other's birthday.

Well, I know this is thrilling reading material, but it's my life right now.  Been running my wheels off working and listening to people's complaints of injuries from car wrecks.  Looking forward to a little down time in a couple of weeks.

Till next time...
