i have my "my pictures" folder set as my screen saver on my computer and the g-kid loooves to sit there and make comments on the pics that come up. usually, it's "who's that nonna?", "what are they doing nonna?", "that's me and mommy, nonna", etc...ad nauseam (i guess that's better than watching tv saying i need that toy)
the other day, in an extremely cutesy voice he said "that was me when i was a little, bitty, baby." yup, i replied. then a few minutes later when a pic came up that looked like this:
he said "look, that's me when my eyes used to be red" LOL the poor kid actually thought his eye color was red and then changed to blue. guess i need to get out the photoshop and fix all of those red eyes.
thursday g-kid spent the day with us and his uncle jon decided to open a can of salmon to eat with some crackers. i hate tuna or salmon (more of those things i was forced to eat). i can't stand the smell of it at all. so, i was complaining about the stench and i guess g-kid wanted to know what the fuss was about, so we told him to take a sniff of the salmon. LOL if i thought i could get him to fall for it again i would SO video it for here. he took a big ole sniff and immediately proceeded to gag, choke, and try to spit the smell out of his nose. then he started crying. i know, i'm a mean nonna, but i couldn't help it. we laughed our butts off! i finally had to tell him to stop spitting (he had slobber all over his shirt) because he couldn't make the smell go away that way!
i actually talked hubby into sitting down and reading a couple of my posts and then directed him to heinous' psycho neighbor posts. he read those and then said "damn!" i asked him, "damn that was funny or damn you didn't like it?" he said "no, it's funny, but i can't believe he has to put up with ppl like that; and i also don't know how the heck you sit here and read all of this stuff." i don't know how anybody wouldn't like to read this stuff! it's funny, friendly, inspirational, and my favorite, down right twisted! i don't know how i didn't get into this blogging stuff sooner.
s.son* is leaving to go back to washington tomorrow. leave is over :( silver lining: grocery bill will go back down :) that boy (man, really) can put the food away! oh, speaking of him, he, my sis, s.daughter, and her boyfriend all went out the other night. sis and s.son ended up kissing at some point during the night. know the first thing outa her mouth? woohoo i just kissed my nephew! lol she's weird like that and loves to go for the shock factor. then they both informed me that if they happened to get married (no, they have no plans of even dating much less getting married), my sis would then be my DIL. as the local news guy says, "that's messed up!" hehe
speaking of that night, that reminded me of my sis's bad luck. i told her to drive over here, that way they could all go in one car. so, she parked her car at my house, under a tree. we had a bunch of strong winds that night. can you guess where i'm going with this? yep. tree branch fell and smashed her windshield. that night out cost her $275 bucks because
a)she has no car insurance
b) we have no house insurance.
now if she had parked it in the barn, and the barn had collapsed on it, she'd have been covered. that's right. we have insurance on hubby's shop and tobacco barn, but not on our house! back when we could actuall afford house insurance, they wouldn't insure it because we have a flat roof (like almost all commercial bldgs have). heaven forbid they insure a house with a flat roof here in TN. i mean those 1-2" snows that we might get ONCE a winter could cave the roof in, dontcha know? give me a break! now they will insure it, but we don't have the money to buy it. c'est la vie!
well my fragments look a little long, but i guess y'all should be used to my long windedness by now :)
*tired of typing step-son/daughter will now be typed s.son/daughter - hey i'll be the first to admit i'm lazy. it's been really hard not to resort to texting language on here!
