Television and other ramblings  
Happy Supernatural premiere day!!!! I can't wait to see what happens this season.

Also, I watched the premiere of So You Think You Can Dance last night. I'm not sure I'm ready for another season so soon. Poor Janine, who only gets to be America's favorite dancer for a couple of months. Glee is sitting on the DVR. I didn't love the first episode, but I liked it enough to give the second one a shot. I did love hearing Journey a'la a glee club.

We are heading to Illinois this weekend for my grandpa's memorial service. He passed away on August 22. He had been in poor health for quite a number of years, but his death was still rather sudden. We grew up next door to my grandma and grandpa, so it is hard to reconcile that someone I spent so much time with in my childhood is gone. Some of my favorite memories are the times I rode along to the grain elevator during harvest season and got to drink a bottle of Grape Nehi and listen to all of the local farmers talk. It's strange that I grew up in a relatively rural setting and now Ella is growing up in a fairly urban setting.

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great weekend. Think of me as I drive 6 hours in a car with a 2 1/2 year old who is bored after the first 30 minutes!

Benadryl, baby, benadryl! :)

I'm sorry you lost your grandpa. Hopefully the service will allow you to catch up and hear lots of good old family stories. And everyone's going to love Ella!

Benadryl might have to be an option......... :)

I really am looking forward to Ella seeing family. A lot of people who will be there have not met her and I think my kid is pretty much the most awesome kid in the universe, so everyone should want to meet her.

::hugs:: I'm sorry for your loss. Nice that you grew up with them right next door, I'm sure you'll have many wonderful memories to carry with you forever. :)

It was fun to grow up next door. It's so different now because Ella has grandparents all over the country that she only sees a couple of times a year.

Thanks for the hugs!

So far behind on responding. Thank you so much. I'm lucky to have so many good memories.

for the loss of your grampa.

But, as for the adorable Miss Ella (TM pending?), you're good at thinking on your feet (er, harder to do while driving your car) and I can't believe that a kidlet can outwit you. There have to be some imaginary games not yet invented. And, then, obligatory nap time and cuddling with her fave toy/doll....

She was a gem in the car. On the way there, we stopped a few times and played (there might be pictures of me in a McDonald's Playland gerbil maze). On the way back, she slept for half of the drive!

Thanks for the hugs. I'm not sure I'm ready to be "the age" where I have lost all of my grandparents.
