I've been catching up on some of the genealogy that I had so dreadfully neglected. I just had so much stuff to do that I felt like I was getting nothing done! I got about 3 more pages of names entered into FAG tonight and I've gotten about 60 names entered into the Nebraska Graves Project. Now I feel like I've accomplished something at least, even if I'm far from done.
Steve went to Whole Foods Market tonight and brought back some Diana's Bananas - for those of you who aren't familiar with Diana's Bananas - they're the most tasty bananas ever, dipped in chocolate and then frozen on a stick. I love the dark chocolate ones, but you can get milk chocolate and then they're rolled in nuts. Yummy, yummy, yummy! Ol' Steve scored some points tonight! LOL
Tony leaves for Cuba tomorrow night. I can't go to the airport. I'd be a blubbering mess. It's hard to say goodbye and know that in the next year he'll only be home one time. Heck I even cried when I'd put my kids on the plane to Phoenix to go visit my dad for 2 weeks. Can't do it. Besides, I have to work. That's a good excuse, right. I'm gonna miss that stinker though. I hope he manages to stay safe.
Miss got an email from mom this week, after she sent her one first ragging on her about not even sending Tony and Candace a card or anything when Ryan was born or for Tony and Candace's marriage. My mom is like that. I haven't gotten a birthday card for years - and the last Christmas present I got was a picture of her and her husband. Well, it has a nice frame! LOL. She totally avoids Matt like the plague too. She hasn't had anything to do with him since he was in grade school. Although she talks to AJ every week and Amber occasionally. I can remember her saying, "I hope if I play favorites with my grandkids like mom (my dad's mom) does, I hope somebody kicks me square in the ass." Bend over mama! Hahaha! She's so much worse than grandma it's unbelievable. She ran into Matt and his dad at a Village Inn one weekend and asked Matt how long he'd worn glasses - uh 5 years! Guess she's going to miss out on that grandmother of the year award too! lol. She told Missy to tell Tony to take care and be safe while he was gone. Missy told her to tell him herself, and then gave her Tony's cell number. I'll be damned, but she called. Tony wasn't too thrilled. He's heard the old "I have a card for your birthday, I just need a stamp to mail it" for the last 11 years. He didn't have too m much to say to her. Can't say as I blame him.
There was something in the paper today about daughter with aging parents who had basically treated her and her family like dirt while they were younger, but now they expect her to help them out in their old age. The columnist said she probably should bury the hatchet and help them be comfortable in their elderly years. BS - Let them fend for themselves, just like they let their kids fend for themselves in their younger days. I wouldn't do anything for my mom. No matter what I do for that woman it's never right anyway, I'm just saving us both the aggravation. Besides she likes her husband's kids better anyway. Not that the affection is reciprocated, no matter what she thinks.
Oh well, so we send Tony off to Cuba. I'm crying just thinking about it. Love ya, Toner!
