Okay, being in my 40’s and having a Facebook page? Who knew, not my kids, to them, I’m way too old to be on Facebook.
Truthfully, I’m having an absolute blast. At first it was great being reconnected to friends since high school, catching up and reminiscing. Now, it’s an all out fun-fest. Not only is it with my friends, but my friends “friends” joined in. My sister in London has joined in as well, along with her friends. We post back and forth about anything and everything. I find myself laughing at my laptop screen as I’m reading posts and even posting.
Our topics range from the ugliest “British” turkey my sister was cooking (she posted a picture pre-cooked) still with some feathers on and legs that look like worms, to having a faux Facebook baby shower for a male friend of ours, complete with clip-art pics. of gifts.
I’m laughing, having fun and enjoying every moment of it!
I thought I would post a picture of my sister’s “British” turkey. Side note, the turkey did turn out delicious and beautiful. 4 years ago
Yesterday, was a day filled with laughter, fun and enjoyment. The sunshine was bright and the pool was so inviting. While relaxing in the pool, enjoying the peace, quietness and the refreshing water, my little grandson, Little Caden decided to join me.
My quiet moments turned into giggles, laughter and maybe a tear or two. His fear of the water is no more. At 21 months, with his life jacket on, his sweet voice would say “One, Two, Free…” and jump in! He would pop up with precious smiles and laughter. Again, his little sweet voice would say “up, up” asking for help climbing out of the pool, to begin counting again…
Next was the diving board! With my daughter and son, in the deep end, awaiting for his plunge into the water, he jumps, pops up with laughter and smiles.
I found myself laughing too, having a fun time with my kids and grand baby. We all were enjoying the moment. a rare thing these days with so much turmoil going on in our lives with my marriage/separation.
After Little Caden, played with the hose and watered all my flowers, he was tuckered out and I was too. The afternoon was capped off with a afternoon nap.
Again, I laughed, had fun and enjoyed the moment.4 years ago
Laugh, Have Fun and Enjoy... I did this today. My precious grandson C. (19mos.) and I played outside for over two hours together.
While trying to fill his baby pool up with water, he was having so much fun with the hose. Watering the grass, the tires on the car, the recycle bin and maybe a few drops in his pool. The smiles that were coming from his precious face brought so much joy to me.
We moved over to his turtle sandbox, and played with his new passion, tractors. Oh, those little tractor-like sounds he would like were adorable. C. decided that he liked the sand outside the sandbox better, using his little plastic shovels to start removing the sand. We played a game of C. pours sand out, Ama puts sand back in…I lost. We both laughed while playing Little C.’s game.
He of course, had to help with cutting the grass. Getting his little bubble lawn mover out and helping Uncle Matthew cut the grass. Little C. followed behind Matthew about 15 feet, pushing his mover, at times taking a few steps backwards as if he missed a spot, and “mowed” under the bushes and then into my flowers!! The look on his little face was priceless, as he looked over at me hoping I didn’t notice…I did.
We ended our fun time with Little C. going down the slide into the pool, splashing, laughing and a few head going under. As I was taking off his bathing suit, he would wave and say “bye-bye, bye-bye” to his pool and turtle sandbox.
I laughed, had fun and enjoyed my time with Little C.5 years ago
R. and I went out to dinner with another couple on Saturday night. I really enjoyed myself. It was the first time I had met this couple, I was a little nervous but stay in the positive thinking mode and had fun.
I’m enjoying the progress I’m making on my journey. 5 years ago
We did not make it to bowling…the kids each had other activities that kept them busy on Saturday. We did spend time together on Sunday while having our “Chore Day”. Believe it or not, I did have fun. My son and I planted flowers together and had a great conversation, that included the two of us laughing.
I also enjoyed our day together. I used to take these days for granted, didn’t enjoy our “Chore Day” and sometimes tried to get out of it (shame on me!).
Yesterday, I really enjoyed and appreciated our time together. My husband came over to participate (were separated), we all had fun. Our son, M., will be going to college in the fall and he won’t be around on many “Chore Days”, realizing this, I sure didn’t take for grated our day together. We got a lot accomplished ~ mostly, family time.

The weekend is upon us and I’m wanting to do something fun with the kids (teenagers). I want to be able to relax and enjoy being with them. M. is going to college in the fall and in a couple of years Z. will be too!
Over the past few years, they have not seen me having fun or laughing very much…Now that I’m feeling so much better and my depression seems to be going away (thank you Jesus), I want to have Fun, Laugh and Enjoy my time with them.
Bowling…I’m not really sure if I’ll “Enjoy” bowling but if the kids are having fun, then I’ll “Enjoy” it. I’m sure “Laughter” will come easy for me and if their having fun, I’m sure I’m having “Fun” too!
So…Heres to bowling! – Laugh,Fun and Enjoy 5 years ago
Laugh, have fun and enjoy…wow, I can’t remember when I really was having fun, laughing and enjoying my time. My life has been so stressful and filled with depression that I haven’t experienced this in years.
I will find laughter again, I will have fun and I will start enjoying my life. :) 5 years ago
