80th Birthday Party

Today we celebrated my Grandma Margaret's 80th birthday. EIGHTY! I can't even begin to imagine what life will be like when I'm 80. How different things will be - how old T and Rach will be. I've often imgained what it would be like to have lived in the 30's like my grandma did, and think that I would have enjoyed growing up and being a mom back then. Sure it was very hard work, and most were very poor but I think that in many ways things were better then.
It was a great tea party this afternoon at the senior's centre, with over 120 people coming to celebrate with her, then about 30 family and close friends stayed for BBQ burgers and all that jazz. Then the 'after-party' spilled across the street to her house for a case of beer and some laughs with HER family (her 2 children, grandkids and greatgrands)

I don't have time for this...

I really have no time to make a blog - BUT I'm doing it. I've been "writing" one in my head for over a year now, so I'm going to make time to type it and put it out there in internet world.
No idea where the time to do this will come from or if anyone will read it or if I will still think this is a good idea in the morning! Also have no idea how to make if you are a "follower" please be patient as I learn about templates and uploading and all that jazz. I'll also be fighting with dial-up internet (might be the only person in the world who still has it) and kids who like to push buttons while I type.
My life is not remarkable, but that's what makes it special. I'm a farm-girl turned farm-wife. I'm a mama to the 2 cutest red heads on Earth. And everyday I fight to stay afloat in my world of mountains of laundry, seas of clutter, mile long to-do lists, unstoppable weeds, thirsty flowers, jungle-lawns, cattle-beasts, short-legged dogs that run a-muck, noisy kittys, a full-time subsititue job, cute but crazy kids and a husband that doesn't always get what being me is all about.
I'm no Martha but I like to think that I make it all work. (With huge help and support from my mommy... and a great group of girlfriends)
