My Little Molly

Presenting our NEWEST addition to the Granquist Family: Molly!! Isn't she cute? She was my Mothers Day present from the kids. Don't worry, there will be MORE pictures forth coming..but for now, this is what I have (actually Liz has my camera..STILL)

Since Mothers Day, Molly has been declawed and she is now totally a Granquist! She has been a joy in our lives..Yes, Jim does actually like her! Her 'new house' is one that Annie and Dan picked up at their NEW favorite less. I have a 'groovin' kitty now. She fits in well with Annamikeyerinjennarachelmatthewethanholly..Molly! Gracie will even tolerate her..well sometimes.

Life at the bookstore continues. I have discovered new books and new authors. Can you tell how exciting my life is? It's a good thing Molly is here to help 'entertain' us. Jim came home from Alaska. I'm glad he's home. His mother, sister and my mother are all in care centers and that made Jim feel guilty about being away. Then Kathy had a heart attack, so he felt he needed to be here. MY Only complaint is my 'kitchen duty' has started up again. I was hoping for a reprieve from the kitchen for SEVERAL months. I guess that part of his being away was ALL a pipe dream. Annie tells me it won't be 3 months til my next post, so until then......
enjoy the pictures!!

Single Again....Temporarily!

So, it's been just over one week since Jim left. Funny how my laundry has decreased dramatically, and my bathroom is much, much cleaner. I have to admit, I kinda miss him. I never thought I would say that. I've even invited to kids over tonight to watch to Jazz game with me. Have no fear though, I will go into the other room to watch Bill (O'Reilly that is) when 9:00 rolls around!!!

Jim has been busy touring around Alaska and Canada. He's a little stressed, but I think he will be o.k., or atleast I hope he'll be o.k.! He misses his bed. Especially since he had to go to Wal-Mart and use a shopping cart to purchase his very own air mattress!!! I would have loved to see that in person...Jim pushing around a shopping cart at Wal-Mart filling it with household goods!!!

thoroughly modern ronnie (except i don't yet have a cell phone)

Here's Ronnie's Blog! I'm now modern. It will take some time to get use to this but I will need something to do with my time while Jim's in Alaska. I will have nobody to cook dinner for. Isn't that great?! So if you have any ideas or requests as to what I should post about, send them my way. I'm so excited because now I will know how to do something else on my computer besides Free Cell. Happy Blogging.
