Caring for the elderly and demented is rough.  
I have classes Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7:30 am.
Tuesday, Thursday, Late Friday mornings, and Saturday& Sunday Mornings
I take Grandma her breakfast and begin the hunt. 
What hunt?
The hunt for dirty bathmats and nightgowns.
She hides them.
You see, Grandma is accident prone. 
We have bathmats in front of her bed to "catch" her morning accidents.
We have bathmats in front of her rocker for similar reasons.
If I don't search her room regularly
the whole house will begin to smell.
She can't smell it. 
She does wear her special briefs most of the time.
She absolutely will not wear them to bed.
She gets up in the morning and well...
Gravity does the rest.
I'm just glad she has control of number 2.
But like I said, 
caring for the elderly and demented is rough.

 Where did I just find a hibernating scorpion with my bare foot? 
In my garage
In a bag of clothing
That I've been meaning to donate
That I stepped on.
My foot is tingling.
It's not that bad really.
Better then getting stung by an ant. 
Now I'm too frightened to donate the clothes.
What if I end up donating a bag scorpion covered clothes?
I'm afraid my donation will now be going in the garbage.

It Took All Day

No joke. I had over 20 pieces of jewelry that I had not photographed and uploaded on to my etsy shop. All day. Photographing. Editing. Entering. Uploading. It's finally done. Feedback on my new items please! I would really appreciate it! follow this link!

Our Gang

Last night my husband and I found ourselves absorbed in TCM's Little Rascals marathon.  We were watching the 1931 series where a 3 year old Spanky McFarland  stole the show. Now I don't know much about the Our Gang kids. I've heard they got financially screwed by the motion picture companies and never saw a royalty check, but no one can deny the appeal and hilarity of those sweet little faces
At 3 years old, little Spanky looked more like a one year old with a very advanced vocabulary. every time little Spanky appeared on screen I giggled and wanted to squeeze him. Of course this could be because he reminded me of this baby...

Who now look likes this big boy.
