Happy Again…

I’ve spent the whole day in my pajamas!…k10910249

I’m not proud of it… but, it was just a lazy snowy day…

so why not!

Doug had spent his first night here since he moved…

Having his meds… k20933269 I felt assured we would be fine… and it was!…

He was actually ready to go to his “home”… by afternoon… k18313113

He has made a few friends and lots of acquaintances since he arrived…

He seems to accept that… he is like our guest now…

k18027059

We are fixing up part of the basement where he lived as a guest room…

Half has a living area with couch, chair, fireplace, tables, TV/DVD… k21585311

and the other half will be the sleeping area with a full bed… night stands… desk… chair… lamps…k8462840

It will be a process rearranging… but, I believe this is going to work…

We will store the rest of his things in the other part of the basement…

The room is not only for him… but, anyone who visits…

We had went out for my Granddaughter’s 21st Birthday last night… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and knowing we would be latewe let him stay all night…

I received his medsk20933269 and felt assured things would be OK…

Taylor and family went to Aspen Creek to eat dinner… 92415625-a4ee-49ce-a47d-3769ee0e209f_m

Both Carson and sister… Kennedy… enjoyed the cookie also…

 

The young ones stayed home for a couple of hours while the rest of us took Taylor and her best friend to Horseshoe River Boat Casino…

This was her desire… to see what we talked about… when we mentioned “the boat”…

Yes, she had a fruity drinkk19838427 … played slots a little and wandered around checking the 4 floors out…

Her best friend since she was 5…

I imagine she felt “very grown up!”…

and she is getting there…

She made a comment how fast her money went…k1767283 so, I imagine there won’t be too many trips to Indiana…

She works hard for her money and uses it wisely… Probably taking after her Daddy!…

I had her a lot when she was little… and she stays here with her Poppy and I while going to College (University of Louisville)… works two jobs… and has a boyfriend…

He is too young to go to the boat being that he won’t be 21 until June… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My dinner has been cookingslow cooked cabbage, hot dogs and mac/cheese…

Nice Sunday afternoon…

and I am happy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daily Prompt: Seven Days / The Daily Post

You wake up tomorrow morning to find all your plans have been cancelled for the next seven days and $10,000 on your dresser. Tell us about your week.

“Oh, my… where did this money come from?” k9179637

Bobby, “Did you win it from a scratch ticket?” k1701177

I know you scratch them sometimes when you go to the store on the corner…

“Did you and Doug win it at Horseshoe Casino?” … You went the other day to play penny slots k11303832

“No, I didn’t win it!… I don’t have that much luck!” k10526498

It came from someone anonymously?… Whoever would do that?…

“You mean it is ours to spend anyway we want?”…

We need to think about this… I’m so conservativepay a bill???… pay something off???… Stock up on things we could use???…

“Have some fun!”k9916211 , you say…

“That sounds so good!”…

“Where could we go???”…

“Who would you like to see???”…

Let’s give this some thought!…

I better hurry… or I’ll have used one of those 7 days just thinking… contemplating… k11242244 going over and over what to do with it!…

Let’s fill the car up with gaspack a suitcase…  x15278694 and just get out-of-town

North or South???

I have to admit… South sounds much warmer and I could use some sunshinek0682379

Let’s drop by and see your family, Bobby… We haven’t been to Georgia for a while and it will do you good to see them…

k7734495k10578451

Let’s go by the casino in Tennessee… We might lose a few dollars or we may win some more… Sometimes a chance has to be taken… and you have so much fun pbu0761

3 days gone by already…goes too fast!…

After visiting a day… let’s hit the road again k8255274 … stopping at anything we want to see… trying new places to eat… checking out those things we promise ourselves to do when we are in such a hurry …

I’ll be happy and content to see that Ocean and feel the water lapping at my toes

k1229575

Feeling the sun k4919127 warming my shoulders… Just smelling the salt in the air…

Our hotel will have a huge King size bed with a big window and patio right on the beach…

We can walk to anything… or just sit and rest… not believing our good fortune… and giving thanks to whoever made this happen…

u11613255

Realistically, I know $10,000 is not an extraordinary amount of money… but, with my compulsion for getting the most from what I have… We will have the best time… and great memories of our special 7 days!…

u14486672k10732690

We make it home safely…. and with my sparing ways… a bill will be paid offk9791884… there will be some stashed   k12289450  for some extra little fun things for us to do… and I will have no regrets in accepting the money… Because I feel I used it wisely… Thanks to our benefactor… He/she has made us so happy for a week… Isn’t that grand!

As you can tell… my desires are smalland my favorite companion is my Bobby…

k5915359

This is exactly what I would picture as a great time… and what I would do with this wonderful gift!
