Hi. I'm trying to think of another description to put here. Any ideas? I'll try again at 420.

Yesterday I got to play with my grandkids...

...They're so much fun and they really enjoy playing with me. I was lucky enough to have a grandmother who taught me how to spoil grandchildren well.

My son will walk in the room, see his daughter doing something she shouldn't be doing and ask me, "Why didn't you make her stop?"

"Because I'm Grandma.", I don't have to. I'll stop her if it's egregious or if she's going to get hurt, but not just because she's having too much fun. If I can't have my own grandmother, I'm going to play the role well, SOMEONE is getting spoiled. That's what Grandparents are for.

I watched this movie last night called The Notebook. It was about an old man telling a lady with Alzheimer's a love story that was written in a notebook. The confused lady listened intently and eagerly waited to hear how the story ended. When the man got to the end of the story, she remembered that the couple in the story was the two of them. It was so sweet and it was the perfect story of love that lasts forever.

I've heard it said that, "We got divorced because we both changed."

Well...duh...if you stay together for years and years, of course people change. Anyone old enough to get married knows that people change. If you can change into a person who isn't exactly the person you married, don't you think it might be possible to change into someone that you love even more if you stayed together? Life, if you're lucky, lasts for quite a while and you might change a few times. But staying together is the trick, you'll never know how much happier you would be if you waited the funky times out.

Someone wrote me to say that I "was always right" and they didn't mean it in a good way. In life, of course I'm not always right. But, when I write about not committing adultery...I certainly am not wrong. I didn't even make those rules up. You're not supposed to cheat on your spouse and you're not supposed to screw someone else's spouse. I didn't make up those rules nor did I make up the vows that people seem to break when they aren't convenient anymore. Oh well, the person who wrote that was probably one of the cheaters so I won't worry a bit about that. But I do feel sorry for the people who they're cheating on.

Today I have to go to the dentist, doesn't that sound like fun? It's time for me to have my teeth cleaned and that's not even fun anymore. They seem to have invented a new machine that even makes that hurt. If I'm lucky, they'll let me suck nitrous and then maybe it will be a little fun. I always pretend to be at a Cubs game when I'm under laughing gas. So, I'm going to go get ready to go to a Cubs game, right here in Marietta. And guess what? The Cubs ALWAYS win when I'm sucking laughing gas so it'll be a good game.

See ya!

Laughing gas is WONDERFUL stuff. I get soooo dreamy on it and love the flight I take. Cubs game huh? Would love to hear about your nitrous trips.

Yeah...it's wonderful stuff if they give you the proper doses. Here in the South they are afraid to do that. I'm not going to anymore dentists who don't give adequate anesthesia. They put me on 3 today, it did nothing. In Chicago, they put me at 7 and that worked every time. They tried to tell me that I was fighting it but the dentist that I went to last December gave me plenty, it was over before I knew it. Today blew. It hurt and I ended up having a root canal and one filling. No Cubs stories today, sadly. I'm quite irritated.

If anyone knows of a dentist in the Atlanta area who gives adequate nitrous, let me know.
