If wishes were pennies.......

then beggars would all ride horses....... at least that is how i remember the saying.



i was wishing i had something clever or witty or enlightening to write today.........

i was wishing i could see my grandson today.........

i was wishing i was 20 years younger..........

i was wishing i could curl up and snooze all day long.............



i am getting way too old to have that many late nights / early mornings. Today was a total wash out. i made up my mind before i even left the house this morning at 6:30 that i would take the afternoon off and drop by the hospital and snuggle my grandson...... then come home throw in some laundry and have a nice lil nap.

However.......... at 1:00 youngest daughter called me to tell me she had been discharged........ DISCHARGED???!!! just over 24 hours after giving birth. She said i should come visit at home.............. i thought about it for all of 2 minutes. She was exhausted (more than me) and was going home to the other granny...... and 2 other kiddies who were anxious to see mommy and their new brother. So i opted out of a house visit....... and opted in for an afternoon of snoozing.

And snooze i did......... but now i am groggy and feeling brain dead........ kind of hung over. This having grandbabies can be highly over rated... especially when one is feeling as old as dirt.

Hopefully tomorrow i will have something witty or clever or enlightening to write. For tonight i will just leave you all with a pic of my little pumpkin - who has dimples !!! (oh yeah........ and he weighed in at 9 1/2 pounds and 21 inches long)

Introducing...........................................................

he is SO beautiful and WOW what a bruiser! I hate hospitals so I bet your daughter is glad to be home! I never stayed more than a couple of hours with any of mine after birth and left with Declan from the receovery room LOL

He is fabulous, and I'm with selkie -- hospitals are no place to be if you don't have to... I wish them all well, and I hope you get to go hold him close very soon.

hugs, swan

I know that little ditty too - but this is how I recite it:


If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.
If turnips were watches, I would wear one by my side.
