Hello everyone..hope all you in the USA have your taxes all done and filed and your refund (Hopefully you got one) all spent.  Thank goodness I don’ t have to worry with that anymore. 

Have you ever heard someone use this slang..I’m fair to middling today or something of the sort? Every wonder where that came from..well, I had never thought of it one way or the other but I’ve sure said it more than once. It has to do with cotton mills and it means :

fair middling being the highest grade of 9 grades of cotton;
middling being no. 5 and the standard by which all
grades are measured  (Joan Kiplinger) My granny worked at a cotton mill for years and years.  I still have a spool of thread she brought home.

Oh my goodness, what a time I had yesterday, Josh and Kendra and the kids came over yesterday afternoon and stayed until about 10:30..we went to visit mother and Cathy for awhile…we came home and Josh and Kendra went to the grocery store..Josh wanted to cook Honey Lemon Chicken..his mother used to cook it all the time. So he cooked and I watched the kids…which was a trying experience LOL..Kendra was lucky, she had to go to school!!

Both were so sleepy they could not hold their eyes open but fought it and I mean fought…All Kaylen wanted to do was read books, Jaxon wanted to crawl all over the house crying as he went LOL..I finally turned on Sponge Bob and as soon as they heard the music they immediately went to the tv..Jaxon pulled up and was standing in front of the TV..Kaylen beside was so cute until Kaylin tried to make Jaxon turn loose…I made it just in time to catch him..

Jaxon was sitting up on the pallet and was too close to the edge, he fell over and hit the cement tile floor, poor baby he cried and cried…then just as they were getting ready to leave Kaylen was sitting in her little chair and it flipped over with her and she hit the floor and bumped her head..and cried like she was dying….

I don’t know I managed to watch American Idol and know what was going on..My girl didn’t get voted off, Crystal Bowersox, to me, is the best on there this year..I also like Big Mike but I’m voting every week for Crystal…she is a single mom with a little boy.  Who is your favorite…I bet Kim and Jen were thrilled that Adam Lambert was on this week!!!
