my son and his family, headed back home

It was nice to have Jim and his family here for a week.  Lyndsay, age four (five next month), has grown up so much since we had seen her last October, and acts so grown-up.  She used to be pretty picky at meal time, but now she eats almost anything you set in front of her.  This morning, they headed home to Georgia.  It's a rather sad departure, since we don't know when we'll see them next.

Debbie cooks a meal while she's here, and it's always something totally different than what we are used to.  So it's rather like going out to eat and ordering something you wouldn't normally have.  The things she comes up with aren't fast to fix, either!  She must have spent two hours putting the beef rollup things together that we had yesterday, and they were great.  Quite a change from my country-style meat-and-taters-and-noodles stuff, and a real treat. 

And now, Cliff and three granddaughters and I are going to Sam's Club and replenish our supply of milk, toilet paper, and other things we've been using like crazy during the past week.

Oh, by the way... I turned 61 today.  Birthdays just aren't as much fun as they used to be.

Happy birthday, my dear journal buddy!
Hope it was a good one!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love Sam's!  We dont' go too often but about once per quarter.  They have some jerky treats for dogs that we give Tugie when we leave to go somewhere.  Then she likes the fact we are leaving. LOL. They are about 9.99 or maybe even more but it's a huge bag and lasts a long time.  Thought Mandy might like them.
