Granddaughter's b-day

July 29, 2010

I haven't been able to get to my blog in awhile, been kindof busy lately. My granddaughter had her birthday this past Sat. she turned 8 years old. That's her, of course, in front of her cake. She had it at the community pool, and it was a good day for it, since it was probably at least 98 degrees outside.

Now I don't even like wearing a bathing suit in front of my family, and you know family are'nt going to ask you when and how you gained 20 lbs. or why the top of your legs look like jello, no not your family. So anyway, like I said COMMUNITY pool, meaning people that go there all time and probably spend the rest of the time in a gym, by the looks of their legs, no jello there. Not to mention that she invited girls from her school, which meant that the moms had to come, not much jello there either.

I knew that I was'nt going to wear a bathing suit, so I had some pretty light green material that I was wanting to make just a sleeveless summer dress out of, yea, so my arms flap a little in the wind to, I wanted it sleeveless anyway. I made the dress thinking I could wear it to the pool/b-day party and still stay comfortable, not cool, but not miserable either. WRONG.

I want you to visualize a cool pool of water in 98 degree weather, and knowing the whole time, while your sitting there sweating like nobodys business, that you can't jump in head first and just stay under until you can't hold your breath any longer. It would have felt so awesome to jump in and not care that I would have been the only grandma in the pool in her green summer dress.

All in all my granddaughter had a great time and after all it was her day, and we grandmas like to see the kids having fun.

Ya'll come back and check me out again soon.

dsthreadsdownsouth out for now.

  1. Doreen, I think you are being too harsh on yourself. I bet you would have been the most delightful grandma on the block that day. It looks like the girls are having fun.
