The good:
 Having the three youngest grandkids hanging around.
It's hilarious to see how much fun they have together.
The good: Having Lexi hang out with me for a week.
She's a great snuggler.
She's never a dull moment.
The good: Candice passed her boards.
AND She got a job!!!!

The bad: It's been an incredibly hard couple of weeks.
The bad: It's cold and blustery.
The bad: I loathe the new blogger interface!

 The grouchy: I'm irritated about the fundraiser the president of this country attended.
The rudeness was appalling.
 The jokes told were inappropriate.
 I'm not sure when I'll get over it.
 Maybe I won't.

Precious grandchildren, Tauna. Lexi is so cute with those big, blue eyes! I think we all share your thoughts about the Pres.
Congrats to Candice!!!

Thank goodness the grandchildren can overcome almost all of the grouchy parts. :) blessings, marlene

Holy Cow Lexie looks just like you! What a CUTIE!

And I too and outraged and the shenanigans pulled by the White House last night and today. Really? Kimmel had some funny lines depending on what side of the aisle you were sitting for it. I noticed that MANY in the audience weren't laughing at all. Amazing how we pay to have a man in a tuxedo stand up and disrespect everyone in the room and get away with it. Shows where we have ended up as a society. It ain't pretty.

I missed all the white house stuff and sounds like it is a good thing. Your grandkids are adorable

Amy said...

Adorable Grandkids.

I've only seen clips of the dinner with the Pres but it was enough. I am pretty tired of it all.

Queenie Jeannie said...

Yay!!! Way to go Candice!!!

Yay!!! Grandkids are awesome! (Don't tell my kids I said that - they don't need any smart ideas, lol!)

Sorry you're grouchy. We get next to zero news, so I have no clue what you're talking about! But I'm not a fan of our current administration, so maybe I wouldn't be upset (?)

Ginger said...

Yea on the passing of the boards and the new job! Yea on the cute grandkids!

Boo on the cold weather and rude people! Maybe you need to escape to Arizona again... We had some cold a day or two last week, but it has warmed back up again! :)

Connie said...

There is good news here. The good far out weighs the bad. And it is ok to be grouchy when it comes to politics, especially with the clowns in the White House now.

Hope your week gets better.

" Hit It......." said...

Lexie is darling...I loved her shoes. Congratulations Candice. I hope you all went out and celebrated.

I don't blame you for being grouchy. I couldn't believe the disrespect that was displayed. I also can't stand Obama.

I am glad I am not the only one that hates the new blogger interface. It drives me nuts. I am having an even harder time getting used to not having Picnik. It was my favorite photo editing software. They replaced it with blows!

Kerin said...

Sweet grands... so wonderful that they get to spend time with you.

See.. that's why I quit watching the news.. I just get so steamed with the goings on of all things political and with 'Holly-wierd'.

Gotta run.. get my walk in while the nice weather is holding .

Yvonne said...

Nothing better than having sweet little grandchildren around. Hugs and snuggles are so GREAT.

Congratulations to Candice.

I don't even want to know what has been going on in the White House. Too depressing!!!

just call me jo said...

I feel the same way about the blogger changes. I've lost my Dashboard thingie completely. Where did it go? Idaho spring weather makes me grouchy too (or it did) and I thought the presidents's humor was deplorable too. Not one bit funny. Who wants a comedian in chief? I love your grandkids and the fact that there's a graduate with a job. Yeah!

Ann Marie said...

Your Grandchildren are so adorable!
You are SUCH a hands on Grandma.
I admire all of the help and love you show your children and Grandchildren. Not many parents will sacrifice and babysit for their Grandchildren much.

I speak from experience.

The whitehouse stuff made me cringe too. It reminded me of a Roast. Maybe if Obama wants to be a comedian.. holly wood should give him a chance. Hopefully he'll be free next year...

So -- I didn't know blogger changed it's interface. Is this why I don't get all of my comments e-mailed to me anymore? I was wondering what was going on... I have missed a TON of comments.. because I had no idea they were there. I need to go back the Old fashioned way -- and actually check my blog now. Grrrr.

Love you Tauna.

Happy or Grouchy. :)

PS: Congrats Candice!!

Sounds like you need a trip to Boise, breakfast in bed, a day to yourself, a soak in a bubbly tub and a foot-rub!

Sometimes even with all that we love in our lives, we just need a break. I'm so happy for Candice and I am thrilled about how far we have come since Romney ran when we were in NYC. Tweet and post about your feelings, in your spare time!!!!

The Obama's are fabulous celebrities, entertaining at every turn. I'm ready for a leader. I hope Barack hangs on to his tuxedo and croons on every talk show....let's just get him out of the White House.

Barb said...

The good is very cute! I'll bet she loves being with her grandma! Gotta love those grands!

Congrats to Candice!!

I agree with the bad, especially the cold and blustery!! And, I really don't like the new blogger stuff either!

The grouchy!! Oh, I couldn't agree more!!


Julia said...

Love the grandkids pictures and that cute granddaughter that is going to sooth you for a whole week. All your's to enjoy.

Congratulations to Candice,

I missed the President's faux pas. I have not kept up with much news this week.

Hope that the rest of the week is better for you. It's kind of damp and cool here too. JB

wendy said...

I think you need a chocolate intervention????
I don't know anything about the fundraiser..but I am "personally" tired of Obama's "party boy" attitude, instead of getting down and dirty, and behind the scenes TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS.
Ok..I'll stop now.

cute grandkids!!! gotta love em
I am happy for your daughter too!!

(for me)
The Good....Barry survived his accident
The Bad....compound fracture and out of commission for most of the summer, which HAULTS my millions of projects I had lined up for him
The Grouchy...I have to be nursemaide. Hey, but at least he can wipe his own butt!!! That's good right.

actually, It's all good!!!!
but I am not a fan of the new blogger set ups system either. Why do people keep changing things??

MZ said...

Cute grandkids. I do not know what the new blogger changes are.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

The the good stuff. Kids are adorable and congratulations to Candice! I didn't see anything on the fundraiser.

Kazzy said...

Sorry you have had a hard couple of weeks. Hang in there.

Your grandkids are adorable! Can't wait to snuggle some of my own someday.

I missed out on the fundraiser debacle. Yuck!

Camille said...

Not sure what you're referring to with the fundraiser crap.

But the weather?! HOLY HAIL! Yes, I'm going nuts with this wind!! I'll join you in the grouchiness! Maybe, we need to go drown our chilly, frigid grouchiness is some milk chocolate! :) (or a Cocoa Bean cupcake)

tammy said...

I'm irritated about those things too! BO needs to give up the presidency and take his act on the road where it belongs!
