BEAUTIFUL DAY! Cousin fun

What a gorgeous Sunday!!!!

Started the day at the gym, along with my whole neighborhood! Lol But seriously it was only 7 AM Sunday morning and pretty much knew everyone in the gym.

After the gym, we head to our cousins gymnastics class. They had there game on in full force. The hurricane and the tornado were all about the gymnastics today.

After gymnastics we always have to hit up a store, today it was Meijer. Were they good??? Heck no. But isn’t that the fun of hanging out with your cousin .

Lunch was a picnic outside , Weston chicken nuggets and fries, Dino vegan tofu nuggets . Then we went by the lake. Big mistake ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Both boys ended up swimming in the lake! Yes….they are officially the first swimmers of the year. After that granny pretty much just let them swim and play in the sand on our beach!

But the highlight for them was the golf cart! We watched and listened as Dino asked Weston to let’s go for a ride. Weston’s reply…. do you want to drive?

Dino’s reply…. no you drive๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Weston …… ok fine I’ll drive. As Weston took the wheel, Dino was pushing on the gas pedal like a 2 man team!!!!!! Thank you god we had taken the keys out!!!

Ashley and I looked at each other and said, picture that in about a few years!!! Forsure they will be trying to drive illegally๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ

But for now let’s ride bikes!!!!!

When your exhausted from playing , you ditch your bike and need a wagon!!!

Big shout out to Jace!!! Rode his bike with no training wheels!!! He’s the man!!๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽˆcouldn’t video and run along, but he did it!

What a wonderful day! Great weekend! Much needed!

Goodnight to all, until tomorrow xoxo ๐Ÿ˜˜

Almost Scammed on Saturday

Hello Saturday ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Lots to do. But first we have a little problem. We’ve been planning our vacation for next year. Pretty much a year from now. Ok this is the situation…… we found a beautiful house to rent on the water. Totally in our price range. 2 boat lifts, barbecue grill, hot tub, linen for 15 guest, parking for 3 cars, plus trailer. Honestly everything. Right in Keywest . We are going to Keywest next year with all the castle members and girlfriends/grandkids etc. Well, we’ve been emailing back and forth , signed the rental contract. Everything seems good. So this morning I’m suppose to transfer the deposit. Well last night we tried to call him with a few more questions, never answered, and never called back. ( first red flag) So then we googled the address ( owner or the rentals address he put on the info for the money transfer). And house was super bad, I mean a tarp on the roof. Looked like a abandoned house next door. Why would someone own almost a million dollar rental in Keywest and live like they are homeless. We think we found his picture on Facebook. Now the whole thing looks like a scam๐Ÿ˜ก. We are so mad, lucky we didn’t send the deposit. Oh , wait did finally hear from him….. did I send the deposit, he never received it. And he said his phone is broke and can only text!!!! WTF!! I may be a blonde but really????๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ

Woke up to this on the table???? Did I miss a celebration last night???

Then as I looked at the bottle more closely I realized it’s white grape juice

so at least no one will be sporting the hangover this morning. I know it was lover and carters , probably a romantic dinner ๐Ÿ˜

ran all my errands this morning, gym, and going to start yard work. Main mate is fishing on the Detroit River with Trevor. They caught 15 walleye , fish dinner coming up baby!!

I’m also hoping to seethe new Release movie

My parents seen it last night , and said it’s my kind of movie!!

Hooked up Stin with a ton of going away snacks, he’s so hard to buy food for. He has basically a 5 item diet, plus Mountain Dew. I also got him some person hygiene products so he can be clean. He was happy, he plans on just working like a dog, making a boat load of money and moving in an apartment. He’s very good at completing his goals. Very determined and hard working. Going to be successful โค. I know I’ll talk to him a ton, but hate when there so far away.

Goodnight to all, until tomorrow xoxo ๐Ÿ˜˜

Off to dinner now, and already bought the movie tickets on line.Life is good ๐Ÿ˜Š

Traveling Stin โค ๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿ’ผ๐Ÿ‘”๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป

Going to miss my Stin! He’s actually leaving Saturday morning. Hard work pays off, it’s a great experience for him. He’s heading to Alma college to work for a month. Making some big bank ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ! Megan will be running all his on line businesses. We will try to help her, but it’s a busy household here lately. They also are apartment shopping and looking for a place. I could possibly be one castle member less in the next few months.

It’s interesting how he’s the one leaving and I’m the one running around making sure he has what he needs. But honestly what does he really need. Clothes โœ… snacks done โœ… work stuff โœ… personal products โœ…. But it’s not like he can’t go buy something if it’s missing. I’m no longer going to worry about what he needs because he sure isn’t. I waited to talk to him last night, never seen him, talked to him a ton, but oh well to be young, in love and working hard. I get it

Want to take him out to dinner and I already know his choice of restaurant….. LEO’S๐Ÿ˜‹ he really should be the spokesperson for their advertising because he seriously eats there 6 days a week. I can’t really say much because during my divorce days, we are there 5 days a week. We would walk in and they already knew our whole tables order. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ easy dinner , better than fast food.

Castle updatesโคโค๏ธโคโค๏ธโค

How much do you pay for cable??? I swear we pay a lot. And half the time there is nothing to watch on TV. Maybe it’s just me and my choice of shows, but darn I’m over this cable bill with nothing good on. Main mate needs his fishing shows so he doesn’t mind the bill, I personally think it’s a waste of money.

So my son is trying to ban me from T ball practice. How rude is that. I get that granny could possibly be a slight distraction…… maybe just a little bit. Lol. But last night it started to hail/rain so Weston and I ran to the jeep for warmth And shelter. Well my cute little T-Ball player decided he wanted shelter also. Trevor was mad, granny was sad. Does Trevor not know a granny’s love for her grandkids! Gosh!!!lol

โคโคโคLove you Trevor โคโค๏ธโคโค๏ธโค

Had a cute little visitor this morning

He walked in my room quite early, I was getting ready for work and he says….. I was wondering if you were watching the news???? I said no but would you like to??? Dino….sure. Not sure why that went down, but he laid in my bed watching the news while granny got ready ๐Ÿคฃ

Here’s some castle updates that have been happening lately……

Just carter sporting a slick suit every dayโค

Stin leaves Sunday for a month for his job, Found Megan in his suitcase ๐Ÿคฃ. She plans on visiting a lot. A month is long, I will miss him, but thinking about it, I probably have seen him twice all this month and we live together.

Main mate is working a ton, which he loves, keeps him away from the castle happenings ๐Ÿคฃ

Vegan Ashley cruising thru college , cooking vegan smelly stuff and being an amazing momma, and Dino, he really should cut an album he sings every day, all day long. I think he sings when he talks!

And me…… well you hear all about my daily issues. But granny is loving life! Beside the fact that Trevor has tried to ban me from T ballโšพ๏ธ.

Watching the news, always sad stuff ๐Ÿ˜ฐ

For all you Commerce Twp people did you hear the news???

Do we honestly need anymore development in our cute little community ??? I’m sure this new entertainment complex will be bad ass. But bad ass also means more people , more traffic, more everything.

๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿš–๐Ÿš๐Ÿš”๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿš–๐Ÿš๐Ÿš”๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿš–

Any more traffic and I’m going to scream!

Awwww RIP Barbara Bush

92 years old is a long life. And hers seemed very interesting.

Another sad news release………๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜“

The woman was sitting on the left side of the plane when something in the engine apparently broke and smacked into the window. She hung out the hole for many minutes, said Amy Serafini and Hollie MacKay, who were in the seats behind the victim.

Many passengers kept trying to pull the woman back into the plane for a long time, until two men were able to get the woman back in her seat, they said.

A nurse answered a call for help and tried to do CPR.

Southwest CEO Gary Kelly said the family of the victim was the airline’s primary concern.

“This is a sad day and our hearts go out to the family and the loved ones of the deceased customer,” he said. “We will do all that we can to support them during this very difficult time.”

The woman who was killed was identified as Jennifer Riordan, according to CNN affiliate KOAT, which cited Annunciation Catholic School. Riordan, 43, worked for Wells Fargo in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the station reported.

Terror in the cabin

“Everybody was going crazy, and yelling and screaming,” passenger Marty Martinez said of the flight, which left New York and was forced to make an emergency landing in Philadelphia.

“As the plane is going down, I am literally purchasing internet just so I can get some kind of communication to the outside world,” he said.

Passenger Matt Tranchin told CNN affiliate WPVI he was thinking, “That I’ll never live to see my son born. That I’ll never be able to say goodbye to my wife, say goodbye to parents. But I am. I am. I feel really very fortunate for that.”

Tranchin told WPVI the crew was frantically trying to plug a hole left when a window shattered.

“Flight attendants rushed up. There was momentary chaos. Everyone kind of descended on where this hole was,”he said.

The plane had suffered damage to one of its engines, and according to passenger Kristopher Johnson, who was sitting near the front of Flight 1380, debris from the engine flew into the window, breaking it and injuring a woman sitting nearby.

“Shrapnel hit the window causing a serious injury. No other details about that. Several medical personnel on the flight tended to the injured passenger,” Johnson said.

The crew reported damage to one of the aircraft’s engines as well as the fuselage and a window, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement.

The injured woman’s arms and body were sucked toward the opening in the plane, Martinez recalled in a phone interview. Objects flew out the hole where the window had been, and “passengers right next to her were holding onto her. And meanwhile, there was blood all over this man’s hands. He was tending to her,” said Martinez, who was sitting a row or two away from the woman.

Other passengers began trying to plug the hole with jackets and other objects but to no avail. Those items, too, were sucked out of the plane, he said.

Martinez said he didn’t think he would survive. Nor did his colleague in an adjacent seat who was scrambling to write one last message to his wife and unborn son,he said.

“We could feel the air from the outside coming in, and then we had smoke kind of coming in the window. Meanwhile, you have passengers that were in that aisle, trying to attend to the woman that was bleeding from the window explosion,” he said. “That was just chaos all around.”

The plane descended precipitously, Johnson said, but the pilot regained control and informed passengers the flight was headed to Philadelphia.

“The crew did a great job,” he said.

The flight tracking website FlightRadar24 estimated the Boeing 737-700 descended from 31,684 feet to about 10,000 feet in a little over five minutes.

Kelly told reporters Tuesday evening the engine was inspected April 15, but he had no details on what parts were examined.

“I’m not aware of any issues with the airplane or any issues with the engine involved,” Kelly said at a news conference.

The engine had 40,000 cycles on it, a quarter of those since it was overhauled, he said.

Seven others hurt

It was a rough landing, Martinez said, and things were still so chaotic that he wasn’t sure if the plane was going to crash. The jet could have been landing on a freeway for all he knew, he said.

“I didn’t know if we were going to be running into a building. I didn’t know what state the plane or even the pilot was in, if we were in condition to land,” he said. “It was just all incredibly traumatic, and finally when we … came to a halt, of course, the entire crowd was (in) tears and people crying and we were just thankful to be alive.”

WOW! Wow!!! So scary!

Sorry no good news today!

Stay positive. Goodnight ๐Ÿ’ค๐ŸŒ™ to all, until tomorrow, happy Wednesday toall xoxo ๐Ÿ˜˜

T Ball tonight, weather related! Hope we get topractice โšพ๏ธโค

TACKLING THIS TUESDAY

LETS ALL TACKLE THIS TUESDAY HEAD ON…..

FIRST THING FIRST …..Worried about RANGE DOG, YES THE DOG THAT WAS HIT BY A CAR ABOUT A MONTH AGO. HE’S BEEN ACTING SUPER STRANGE LATELY. LIKE YESTERDAY MORNING, HE WOULD NOT GO OUTSIDE, AT THE TIME I DIDN’T BLAME HIM. IT WAS THAT COLD , WET, ICY DAY. BUT IT WAS MORNING AND HE ALWAYS GOES OUT THE FIRST THING.

THEN ASHLEY HEARD A WEIRD NOISE COMING FROM THE LAUNDRY ROOM AND FOUND HIM SITTING IN THE CORNER ( ALMOST LIKE A TIME-OUT) STARING AT THE WALL. SHE SENT ME A TEXT, AND SINCE THEN HE’S BEEN ACTING VERY ODD. JUST DOING WEIRD STUFF.

HE HANGS OUT ALOT IN STINS AREA, AND BEDROOM, AND WOULD NOT COME DOWN STAIRS, WE CALLED HIM, YELLED TREAT ETC , STILL NO RANGER. HE’S EATING AND DRINKING, AND WALKING FINE.COULD HE JUST BE DOING THIS FOR ATTENTION???NOW THAT WOULD BE A SMART DOG.

MAYBE HE HAS SEASONAL DEPRESSION, BECAUSE OF WEATHER. THEY DO SAY DOGS CAN GET IT.

GREAT NOW MY DOG NEEDS A THERAPIST!!! THE LADY NEXT DOOR STOPPED BY AND HE GREETED HER, BUT NOT LIKE HIS NORMAL SELF. HE REALLY NEEDS A SUNNY DAY SO HE CAN GO PATROL THE LAKE LOOKING FOR FISH, AND CHEER HIS LAZY BUTT UP!!!

Poor Dino , I mean poor Ashley , so last night Dino was basically in bed, and decided he needed to make his rounds again visiting his mates. When he made it to me, he got caught by his mother๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ, she asked him what he was doing??? His reply I came to sing ” Humpty Dumpty” with granny๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ. Ashleys like, well you left the room to ” go potty” did you ever go potty??? Dino….. I needed to sing first. But as all this was happening the main mate walks in the door with a bunch of groceries, guess he decided to go grocery shopping around 10pm last night. ๐Ÿค” He had a craving for fish ๐ŸŸ sticks!!! Really !!! What a horrible thing to crave. Now the house smells, I’m just not a fish stick’s fan.

Gross, sorry just saying ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ

So here Ashley and I were texting back and forth about the nasty fish sticks, she’s a vegan and prior to her vegan days she hated fish sticks. When I accidentally sent the main mate my text about how he’s bomb the house out with a nasty ass smell ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ the text was meant to go back to ashley. Oh well , he knows how I feel about it.

Motivated Monday

Not getting down on this Monday.

Already spent the morning on the phone with the car rental company. I rented the car for my Florida trip, gave them an additional $250 for some deposit. Well they said they are keeping it for toll fees! Well that’s funny because if they pull up the video of me at the tolls they can see me trying to pay them. But the toll taker would not take my money because he said my car had a toll pass on it and the tolls were included in that pass. Total scam, yes I was scammed by executive auto rental. I would never rent a car from them again. The car was fine, but I paid everything up front and they kept wanting more money when I went to get the car. They even tried to sell me additional ” car theft” insurance. I had already purchased the extra collision when I book it. SCAM!SCAM!!

So now I’m making a complaint with the company, who knows what will happen. It really gets me mad, because every time I went thru a toll, Carter would laugh at me because I tried to pay and the guy would yell at me , ” your holding up my lane” . I honestly thought the person before me that had rented the car, had maybe bought the toll pass and had a few days left on it, so I checked each time going thru the tolls and was told ” your good” ????Yes, and now they want my $250 bucks!!!!๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

Scammed by them๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ
