Lordy Lordy Jenn is 40

So far so good, and for the record, I”m not officially 40 for about another 2 hours.  The day has been good so far…Mom and I went to Curves this morning, then to Home Depot to buy plants for yard.  Then back to the house for lunch, spaghetti leftover from last night!  YUM.

Mom took off for the commissary and I decided to stay home and follow up on a potential temporary job here in Maryland covering for an RD who is going out of maternity leave.  The call went well, the position is right up my alley – Renal Dietitian, part time – now I just need to convince Scott that I need to stay in the US til the fall….maybe easier said than done.

After the call I decided to head back to Kohl’s, this time to Bowie – in search of bedding for the king sized bed that we have in Chile.  I found the perfect set in Waldorf, but alas they were out of the King.  Today must be my lucky day because I found it in Bowie!  SCORE!  BIG SALE!  HUGE SAVINGS!  LOVE LOVE LOVE KOHL’s.

Now I’m back at home getting ready to chow down on taco salad with the fam.  Looking forward to crabs with the girls tomorrow night.

Happy Birthday Grammy!

Today would have been my grandmother’s 99th birthday!  Grammy died this past summer (July 17th).  A few months ago I wrote a memorial blog to her.  In this blog I said that I would have my ancestry project completed by today as a tribute to her.

Well it’s today, and the project is NOT complete, though I have worked on it quite a bit.  I plan to spend some time on it today.  In going through my notes I discovered several handwritten documents that I will also scan to preserve.  If I had to guess I’d say I have about 3/4 of the project finished.  Today I’d like to get what isn’t entered to the Ancestry.com database entered so that I can see where I need to do further research.

Every year Grammy would send flowers to the church to be displayed during the service in my grandfather’s honor (his birthday was yesterday).  This year my family sent flowers in both of their honor.  The picture at the top of this post is a picture of the flowers.  Yellow, Grammy’s favorite!
