Hiya Bettermost Friends!

Hope everyone is doing well!

They did.  Mom and dad are truly enjoying their roles of "great-grandparents"!  They took him on some of the rides, shared some treats on the boardwalk with him, and played in the sand on the beach.


Day 4 of my "stay-cation" is done. ;D   I'm going to miss this time off, but I'm getting stuff done.

Tonight I'll be getting some clothes packed up to donate, and I managed to finish getting my vinyl records organized and logged into an Excel sheet.  I have almost 700 records!

 :o

I posted 4 pics of my Madonna picture discs in the "Collectibles" thread.  You can see them here.

Will you play my record? One-track mind!

I have some friends who are great grandparents. They say it is better than being a grandparent because these days grandparents are often expected to do child minding whereas it is not expected of great grands. They can choose when.
I find it a bit mind blowing. Both my grandmothers died before I was born and one grandfather died when I was about 4 or 5, the other when I was about 13. Great grandparents were just not heard of.

My ex-in-laws, in their 80s, are great-grandparents of two toddlers. And my ex-husband's grandmother was my kids' great-grandmother. She lived to 105 (dying not long before her first great-great-grandson was born, when her great-grandchildren ranged from roughly 13 to 21.) People live longer these days.

On the other hand, parents are more likely to put off having children until their late 30s (as I did) or even 40s. My kids are 22 and 23. I'm 60. If I'm ever going to be a great-grandmother, they'd better get busy! But they don't seem to be in any hurry to even settle down, let alone have kids.

Hiya Bettermost Friends!

Hope everyone is doing well!

Day 5 of my "stay-cation" is starting.   I slept in, and now I'm watching some trashy TV.

I have to go out and pick up some pants from the tailor, grab some lunch, and then finish getting the closets cleaned out and organized.

Then I want to finish cleaning the apartment.

I can remember one of my great-grandmothers from when I was younger, but I only her, not my other great-grandparents.  I can remember her teaching me to count to 10 in Italian.

It's a lot of fun to see my parents as great-grandparents, as they "skipped" the grandparent part.   My brother (Chris) and I are both single and childless.  My brother Mike married his wife, who had a daughter from a prior marriage.  When my family met her (Shana) she was 13.   My parents always referred to her as their granddaughter, but they never had the grand baby to play with.

When Shana gave birth to Trenton, mom and dad had that baby to play with, and they make the most of it when they can!

I met my paternal great-grandmother once. It was 1968, when my parents' home town was celebrating its centennial. When my grandfather died, while my dad was just a boy, my grandmother became estranged from my grandfather's family. I learned at some point that my great-grandmother did not like my grandmother, so Grandma naturally gravitated to her relatives and not my grandfather's. My dad grew up closer to his aunts and uncles and cousins on Grandma's side of the family.

I don't remember when my great-grandmother died (I could look it up), or if my dad even went to her funeral.  :(

That's too bad, Jeff.  Family estrangements make things so difficult.

Good morning Bettermost Friends!

;D

Hope that everyone is having a good weekend.

My productive stay-cation is still moving forward.   I went through my dressers and closet, and managed to get 4 garbage bags full of clothes packed into my car.

I'm taking them to a place about 30 minutes away from me called "Green Drop".




It's a place to make drop off unwanted items, and they will make sure your donation gets to the charity of your choice.

The charities they server are "National Federation of the Blind", "Military Order of the Purple Heart", "Society of St. Vincent de Paul", and "American Red Cross".

Hello Bettermost friends!

;D


Today was the first day back to work.  Thankfully, it was a pretty easy day.  I was able to deal with all the backed-up emails that added up while I was away. 

Hopefully, the rest of the week will  go as smoothly!  ;D
