Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday (started at The Printed Page and now a traveling meme) is at Unabridged Chick this month and is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
 Brrrrrrr! It's another cold day. With the wind chill it's -14! Last week it was in the 40s for a few days so it's not too bad if it doesn't stay this way. It's great weather to curl up by the fireplace and read. I hope you are warm and cozy and enjoying some great books at your house.

(On a very happy note we finally heard test results for our grandson, Monkey Boy. His EEG came back normal! Hopefully the seizure was just from the fever. )

Saturday Snapshot

 Saturday Snapshot is hosted by At Home with Books. To participate in this meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.
What a week! We celebrated my grandmother's 94th birthday with family and friends.
The oldest and youngest family members of five generations.
Monkey Boy (grandson) got his first haircut from me and his mommy.
I miss his curls!
Monkey Boy spiked a fever and had a seizure in his daddy's arms. He got his first ambulance ride that night, again in his daddy's arms. (My boys have had too many ambulance rides but we are grateful we had them!) The doctors think it was because of the fever but his parents had to take him to a children's hospital two days later for an EEG to test his brain waves. We have to wait this very long weekend to get the results on Monday.
Tired boy in the ER.
On a happy note this is Monkey Boy the next morning after his bath.
Sweet boy knows how to pose!
And The Princess (granddaughter) had a great checkup at the dentist.
Sweet girl knows how to pose too! She needed the sunglasses because of the bright light.
We are hoping for a very boring week next week! I may even get to read a book and write a blog post. I hope you are all safe and warm and that Blizzard Nemo didn't hit your home.
