And the beat goes on

Let's see, where did I stop and where do I start.  M. thought his basketball practice was at 5.  So at 5 we rushed to the car and to the school.  I kept telling him that his daddy was planning on being home to take him.  Well, it was at 6.  We talked to their daddy and he said have them ready to go.  Soooo, I kept them in the car.  And I have a small car.  This is how it went.
Yep, Mabel's feet. I spared you the rest of the pictures.
We couldn't play outside and wait because.......well you know.
We had our first showing yesterday.  It went well.  Hubby did some things before he left for work.  I did the rest.  I have tried not to stress out and was doing okay.  The dogs and I drove around for an hour and a half.  That was okay but I had an engine light come on.  It was way too wet and icy to get out of the car because.........well you know.  We did some drive thru errands.  One was to pick up meds fro the drug store.  We dropped my son's off at his condo.  He was excited to see all of us.  
We went home and got settled back in.  I was only home for an hour when the phone calls started.  To not get into all the details his anger went from his neighbor to me.  He wants to make his own decisions.  I guess he has a short memory.  Well, we said in December that it was his last bail out.  I don't know how this will end.  I'm not imagining well.  Since this has started my husband and I are just drained.
Moving on.  The realtor came to take pictures today.  After he left I did this to the kitchen. 
Don't these look like plungers.  They are teeny wooden flower pots. 
I got lots of projects going on.  I usually stash it all away but I need to be busy.
M and Mabel came out for only about an hour tonight.  They wanted music for downstairs.  M asks for a radio.  I didn't have one but I do have an intercom with music.  Old school.  Mabel runs upstairs and says, "Grammy the music is on but there isn't a picture on the TV."  I love it when they come here.  They just walk in like they live here. 
So my friends, I will leave you now.  I need to try to get some sleep.  It is what it is.

We live such "alike" lives with grandkids. I KNOW what happens in a car with kids with an hour

Cute little flowerpots you have started there. Can't wait to see what the turn out like.

Glad the showing went well-that's always a pain in the butt.

I am so sorry you are still having problems with your son. Yes- you can only do so much for them and bail them out so many times. We have been there, done that and it does not end you know.

Have a great Friday, Debby. xo Diana

So sorry your son is giving you problems again. I don't blame you for being drained,

Love the miniature flower pots. I hope for a sale soon so you don't have to be left in the cold.

I'm trying to think SPRING.

Kids in a car for an hour is not ever and easy thing! Hope your son does not cause you too much stress, it is so hard sometimes isn't it? Take good care of yourself.

My sister also has her house up for sale as we speak, and she's had t disappear for 4 days due to the onslaught of realtor visits!

Your mini flowerpots are adorable; wondering what you will fill them with!

Stay positive, Debby!

P.S. Thanks for your sweet comment on my current post.

So sorry to hear that you're having problems with your son. It's very stressful, I know. I surely do hope that your house sells soon. This is a good time of year to move into a new home. You have so much more patience than I do. I would be oh so cranky having to leave my house all the time. It's a good thing that I'm not moving. haha.

I love your little mini houses. They are so cute. Deb, you are so good with your grandchildren. I think it's wonderful that they love being around you all the time. Enjoy them, they grow up so fast.

Think Spring. It's almost here!! You have a super day, hugs, Edna B.

"It is what it is" = "it could be better, but then it could be worse too."

I'm grateful for small joys.

Like flowerpots. I can't wait to see what yours become. Mine became penguins during my summertime Christmas project frenzy. Who woulda thunk it!
