Swimming with my soon to be 3 year old granddaughter for hours in the pool.  What a happy day!

oh I'm jealous, it's really cooled off in the last week or so and the pool temp has sunk from 76 to 68 :(

    I've had some really great things happen to me today!

    First of all, I fixed a problem at work.

    Then I checked the KBs and found I had two really nice PMs from fellow members.

    And I'm looking forward to the fresh fruit pie I made for dessert tonight!

    Mondays aren't always so bad... ;D

    I received pictures from daughter's wedding on June 6th - looking through them makes me happy all over again!  My other bump for the day is that I did not have anything I HAD to do today and have been sitting in the 3-season room drinking sweet tea, reading and listening to the birds - heaven!  All Mondays should be this good.

    I just realized that my birthday is on Friday and Toy Story 3 is coming out in about a year (18 june 2010). Bff says she wouldn't be surprised that I would ditch the clubs on my 21st birthday to see Toy Story 3.

    Too numerous of bumps to count so I'll make it short and sweet.

    My handsome Marine sent me another picture of himself, this one in uniform.  My goodness he is a gorgeous hunk of man.  He is doting and caring too, what a love.  *Sigh*  I shall dream sweetly tonight.

    I told myself I wouldn't 'fall' for him, but he is begining to wear down my defenses.

    My youngest son, who is 23, called me the other day to tell me about Toy Story 3 coming out.  He's very excited.  I'm excited too actually.
    He's also excited about Ice Age 3.

    My great-grandson (15 months old) had a bad kind of bump today that scared the devil out of me. For no particular reason he lost his balance, fell and when I went to pick him up, blood just gushed from his mouth. Trying to see where the damage was proved to be a challenge but after a struggle I saw that he had bitten through the end of his tongue. Gad, there was a lot of blood. I tried ice, cold cloths, everything I could think of and it turns out, after a call to the insurance company's 25 hour nurse, that sugar will stop the bleeding.

    The sugar and a Popsicle did the trick. The child is fine now but I thought the sugar tip was terrific and wanted to share it.

    Having the day off from work and NOT having a doctor's appointment or chemo tx with either of my parents...though I did stop in for ten minutes to check on them.  First day to myself in a very very long time.  I enjoyed doing practically nothing!!

    You'd think that I would have known that but it never dawned on me. I guess none of my children or their children ever bit their tongues when I was around. I actually see more of my great-grandchildren than I ever saw of the previous generations because I was always working away from home. Thanks for the kind words. I'm about to recover.  ;D

    Got a *B* on an exam I thought I had failed today. Supposedly it's the hardest exam of the semester.

    How frightening it must have been for you, Jeff.  Glad to hear your great-grandson is OK!  Love the Popsicle tip!

    Jeff, glad to hear he's alright. Never heard the sugar tip, that will probably come in handy. I don't do well in situations like that. I completely freak.

    My bump for today was taking the kids to the beach and watching them play in the surf...fully dressed! They were only supposed to put their feet in, but that didn't happen. Poor kids had an hour and a half ride home soaking wet and covered in sand with no change of clothes and no towels...We had no intention of going to the beach today when we left. We were only going shopping and to play Putt Putt. No Putt Putt and only a 10 minute trip to the QVC Outlet Store.

    It was priceless though.

    We lived in Florida and Hawaii while our son was between the ages of 4 and 8.  We never left the house without a change of clothes and a couple of towels in the the car because we never knew when we might end up somewhere conducive to water play!

    My bump for today was:

    I am in an Adopt a US Soldier program and I recieved a soldier to adopt this morning.   He is a 1Lt and an MP.  So it will be nice to give him support while he's deployed.  I am waiting on a return email from him to see who he is and what all he is doing over there.

    That is all, carry on. . .

    My bump for today was an opportunity to donate several copies of my books to women prisoners in Washington State. Apparently, the need for books of all types is great, and if I can help take their minds off their troubles for a few hours then it seems like a good thing. Publishing a book isn't always about selling.

    Rhiathame, congratulations on a job well done.  VA, I love your haircut -- to cute!

    My bump brought tears to my eyes.  Today I received a lovely compliment about my daughter.  She had done something extraordinary for some people we know.
