Call Me Nonna

So as I mentioned in my last post I am going to be a grandma!

My daughter Shauna and her husband Brad are expecting a baby February, 2017.

We've known since Father's Day but they didn't want to tell anyone else until she got past her first trimester. Now she's 13 weeks and feeling pretty good. Thankfully she hasn't felt a lot of nausea, just very tired!

This is the first grandchild for us and also for Brad's parents so you can imagine how excited we all are!

The excitement will get us through the next winter, anyway!

I was off of work this last week.  I didn't have too many plans and we didn't plan a vacation anywhere yet, but I needed a little break!

Took my dad to the casino which was fun, although I couldn't find him for about a hour! Turns out he was in a completely different area than I thought he would be!

I met my friend Karen for breakfast one day, too.  I also did boring stuff like cleaned out the pantry and the refrigerator.

I spent several hours shopping for new auto insurance. On a side note, next to Florida, Michigan has the highest auto insurance rates in the country! I blame Detroit!

Oh here's something funny. Our dryer stopped heating and we had to replace a part on it.  Or I should say, Rich had to replace the part! When we took the front panel off the dryer this is what we found!

That's coins! Talk about the mother load of laundry jackpots! There was $4.85 total!

Next week my nephew is getting married at Island Lake State Park. Hopefully it won't be too humid but I'm not getting my hopes up! It's been a hot, humid summer so far and every day seems to be a bad hair day!

Until the next time!

That is quite a handful of change in the dryer. And once again, congrats on the grandbaby! Gandbabies are the best!!

You are so going to love being a Nonna. I can hardly wait myself!!

I'm glad you took some time off, we all need that occasionally. Even me, and I'm retired. :)

Off to St. Augustine today until Wednesday. The girls start school on Wednesday; they're both so excited! I love that.

Found out when I bought this new (to me) car that my insurance carrier was still less expensive than those others that "say": You can save this, and that. NOPE So, I'm sticking with State Farm. LOL

Grandchildren are the reward we get for raising their parents!
