Okay...I am new at this blogging stuff. But Aramie has convinced me to give it a try.
I am 52. I am plump. I love my dodge grand caravan. It is my dream car. I recently scraped the passenger side on a yellow pole in the Wal-Mart parking lot and felt like I had hurt one of my kids. Why does Wal-Mart need all those yellow poles any way?? I know this sounds shallow. I never had a brand new car until I got that minivan. Since we bought that car I don't want to drive any other car. I think it must be a sickness to love a car so much. Don't judge me.
My passion is my granddaughters. I love them almost as much as my minivan....just kidding. I adore those two little girls. No one can truly understand the love a grandmother has for her grandchildren until they have their own grandchildren.
Last year on April 1st my best friend died. We had been best friends since we were 16. We met through a mutual boyfriend. We decided we liked each other better than him (and not in a gay way)and we called each other weekly,sent each other birthday gifts,Christmas gifts, and etc. for 35 years. I am lost and cannot explain the depth of pain I feel at the loss of her(Robin). I feel bad because I have not had any contact with her family since her funeral. It is too painful. I need advice. what would you do if you found yourself in my place?
I am reading a book called "You on a Diet". Have you heard of it? I hope it helps because I am really tired of being fat and I don't know how to help myself. I have been on so many diets since I was in my late 20's that I am sick to death of it all. I just want to get to a point where I feel good about myself and never have to worry or care what people think.
My sweet husband has pneumonia. He won't take it easy. Doesn't know what it is to rest. He goes nonstop.
My granddaughters are Kacey and Darby and they are so precious and darling.
I am thinking of getting a longhaired miniature dachshound. What do you think?
Well, is this a totally boring blog?
Aramie, I am Anne Elliot.
It will be really embarrassing if no one comments on this. So please give me a courtesey comment.
Do I sign this "love", "sincerely yours", "all my best", I am not always down with the modern lingo.
love, Cindy (is more my style anyways)
