I'll never~ever~ever give up!

I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 61 and still paying my bills (barely).

my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have ...

Thanks for commenting on my "sensitive blog today" When my DH got home he did smack her lightly but then told her why and explained what disrespectful was. Later when mommy and daddy got home, the gd was doing something and her mom give her something else to do which she ignored and kept doing what she was doing and her father (who works all the time but really disciplines), yelled at her and made her do what mommy wanted, that gave my dh the opportunity to tell them that he would not put up with her being disrespectful and it was unacceptable. both parents agreed and said they have noticed it and are working on it. later my dh and his son went to pick up sandwiches and my dh took the opportunity to say something to his son. his son agreed that his wife needed to be more determined and consistent and discipline their daughter otherwise when she turns into an "ugly teenager" she would be "her child" since she created this.
who knows what will happen. It's just so hard for us grandparents to sit by and watch it.
Have a great rest of your week end.
Hope your DH is finding some relief.

Bev and I leave September 23 and have 3 days each in Budapest, Prague, Salzburg and Vienna. I've never been to any of them.

Peter and I visited Istanbul on a cruise a few years ago. It's a fascinating city.

Thanks for the goodie. I'll be thinking of you and your husband this week when he has his surgery.
