my hair and other things.

These ladies just look so classy. I do have my 1950's house wife sweater. I found a pill box hat at wal mart, so I need to go buy it. Now all I need is a skirt. Then I am off to the commissary to shop like I am 1950's house wife! George said that she want to go along so that she can take pictures. Rusty said that he wont know us on that day. Whatever.

Over the weekend Nikki and George picked on me about my hair. Nikki said that I need spend more money on my hair care products. George said that I need to dye my hair so that it will all be the color and the dye will cover up the gray. So last night while Rusty and I were laying in bed I told him what Nikki and George said. Rusty grabbed one of my curls and said "I love your hair just the way it is." Well that settles it. I will do nothing to my hair.

Nikki called me last night to tell my that her boyfriend Chris had been kicked out of the house. Nikki rattles on for a while and then says "mom the sad thing is Chris does not know how to survive on his own. His mother has always controlled him and he is never allowed to make any decisions for himself." How sad is that. So Nikki asked if he could come stay at the house for a few days.

Now Rusty can't stand this kid. I am trying to be open minded but it is not working all that well. So Rusty and I agreed that he could spend one night. Then we would talk to the children's youth pastor and see if he could help.

Now I thought that was reasonable and I thought well at least we did not look like we did not care at all.

The boyfriend never showed up last, and Nikki just called me to ask me not to tell anyone at the church what is going on. See if this gets around then the boyfriends mom looks bad. Whatever. I told Nikki that I would not say anything. I am still trying to be open minded and to keep my mouth shut.

All of us got some good news this weekend. a guy call squid, because he is Navy. SIDENOTE: Rusty started calling this guy squid after Rusty found out that he was in the Nave. Rusty asked him how in the world a squid snuck into a house full of marines! LOL Anyway squids wife had a baby this weekend. The little girl is so perfect. I think the biggest blessing is that squid was in port when the baby arrived. So today I will finish up their blankets and then next weekend everyone is going to pitch in $10 and we are going to give them a wal mart gift card. I just love babies..... mainly because they are not mine and I don't have to do the 2 a.m. feedings.

I decided the other night that this Saturday I am making all of the marines a sit down dinner. I am going to make shepherds pie, cheese cake and I am thinking fresh fruit. This will be the last weekend that most of the marines will be here, so I thought this would be a good send off. The marines said that they would love to have a sit down dinner before they leave.

Today I just need to do a few thing around here. I think the sun is trying to peak out, but I don't think I will be spending any time outside.

Here is another old song for you. I was listening to this song and I told Rusty that this would be us! LOL He just laughed and agreed with me.

Poor Nikki's boyfriend.  Too many kids are sheltered to the point they can't do anything and then the parents toss them out like old lettuce.  So sad.

To be honest if the child has been made homeless you must inform social services.  If the child is 18 then he's an adult.  Not knowing the hole story it is hard to comment, however it can be agrued that now you he's homeless you have a duty to protect the child from harm.  Not telling the pastor/ church community ios just plain stupid as if they are the good chrisitians they are they would not judge, but help.  If they do not help then how can they call themselves christians?

I want to see the pics of you in your 50s garb, shopping at the commissary.  Congratulations to Squid and his wife!  I hope that Nikki's boyfriend has a place to stay and that he and his mother can work things out.  And I love the song Escape.  Great video!

I did listen to this old song.  Your graphics are always so different.  I like that.  Can't wait to see more photos of marines with the blankets you made them.  Our great grandma's project was to make all her grandchildren and great grandchildren a quilt.  Her specialty was the star quilt, but she died before I could get mine!   Gerry

I love the elegance and class of the 50s and the 40s.  Bring back the days of Audrey Hepburn and Lucille Ball I say.  If Rusty loves your hair, and you love your hair, then keep it.  The baby sounds so sweet but I'm with you about the 2am feedings.  Don't like those.  Hope the meal went well.  I'm catching up on alerts so I'll keep reading.
