After we left Kansas City yesterday, the kids took Jaxon for a family picture and his 1 month pictures….I totally laughed out loud when they sent me this one.  The apple doesn’t fall from the tree!  Anyone who knows Justin will understand.

Very sad news followed shortly after that Jaxon’s great grand dad on the Callaghan side passed Sunday afternoon.

I have been suffering from a lot of angst about my hair.  It’s not like this is one of the important things in life…I usually only think about it when I look in the mirror and wonder aloud…who? what the? oh my!  I sent this picture to Mandy – my “beauty operator” at the “hair parlor” to see if we might be able to add some depth to my personality my coloring the bottom layer of my hair.  I KNOW I KNOW..this is why I quit coloring and went gray/white…but I kind of like this look and quite frankly, I like this cut….and if I could lose the 2nd chin and have these voluptuous lips, I would be very happy…

Do you think it is possible that I’m a different person blogging just because I’m on LiveJournal and not on xanga?

Until next time….

I really did not think buying our future house and making the decision to retire would have any impact on my life. Oh the retirement thing..yes..I guess I knew I would be doing the countdown of lasts…my last memorial day, my last 4th of July, the last month I will only have 1 weekend off…but I didn’t think I would give much thought to the rest of it…after all, I have a year left (had).

I’m different. I’m distracted. My priorities have changed. I HAVE NOT PLANTED FLOWERS YET!

Before we moved to this house, I pretty much had perennial flower beds and perhaps spent $25 on some annuals to spice up the color. In the 3 years we have lived here, I’ve been slowly working to get the beds self sustaining but have some pots and one little triangular space along the driveway that I was going to put stone around and get a bed started. Oh..I think about it..but it is not important to me. When I back out of the driveway, I remember that I should do it and I want to do it right then…but it just takes too much energy to plan it and do it. I haven’t really had much time off when it hasn’t been raining…so that may be the primary reason I haven’t added color to my life? Don’t know.

I have to go back to work tomorrow…blech. This is not the last time I will have that thought.

Until next time….
