About Me

I have been happily married for 40 years. My husband retired from GM after working there for 36 years. He is now working part-time at a local GM dealership as a shuttle driver. It is the perfect job for him. He doesn't mind driving and for sure he doesn't mind talking. I have enjoyed rubber stamping for about 10 years. I can tell you that I do not do scrapbooking just cardmaking. I love it. I retired from the University of Michigan in 1997 after working there for 30 years. Most of the time I worked in the Mathematics Dept. At this point, you can say I wonder how she liked it. My mom told me if I couldn't say something nice to someone don't say anything at all. I will comply and not go into a huge dissertation about how awful my bosses were during that period. I did like my office mate, Dee Hudock. We worked very well together. I can also say for the most part I liked the professors. I have two grown children and 3 grandchildren. I am totally addicted to FB and all the games I play there.

Sad and good all in the same day

Our poor little Lilli has a double ear infection. She was up in the night last night. She just wanted her mommy. She felt terribly warm to me and she said her ear hurt. She laid with us for a little while and said she could go back to bed. I got up at 7 and she was laying in grampy's chair. She was crying again. I felt so bad for her. There was really nothing much I could do for her. I called Joy (who is also sick) and Jeff came and got the girls. We were going to take them home because we were going north later in the day. She got home and fell asleep. She had a temp of 102.6 which is pretty high. They let her sleep and took her to see the dr. later in the day. She has a double ear infection. I don't know if Hannah took a nap but she didn't feel well either. She was trying to sleep when Lilli was crying. I hate it when the kids are sick. I hated it when my kids were sick. It is part of growing up I guess but I just get frustrated because I can't help.

The other news is our friend Landy Bobo had to have surgery yesterday. His pacemaker was not working and has not worked since June. He has congestive heart failure. We were so relieved to hear he was doing ok. We ran in and saw them at Tim Horton's for a little bit. I wish it could have been longer but we didn't want to be late for the next item on our agenda.

Now on to better news. Once again we were able to spend time with some dear friends today some who we haven't seen in a while. Our friends, Ron and Gail, had a celebration of their 40th anniversary. We had a lovely lunch at Fleming's in Birmingham. Their son, Andrew, is the chef/partner there. It was very good. The steak was fantastic. From what I could observe and what I have been told, it is expensive to eat there. We had a good time and heard some stories about the Craig's and how they met and their "honeymoon". They have a new grandson who was born last Monday morning. He is a beautiful baby.
