This is my first attempt at writing a blog. My good friend Darlene Arden keeps telling me that I have to learn to do this sort of stuff. I am old school and not into all of the new technology, so here it goes. Within the next month I will become a first-time grandmother. It reminds me of when my son was young. We adopted him and at the time the waiting list was two years long. It was like being pregnant for two years and then we got three days notice! What a fiasco that was. Now I have had nine months to get used to the idea. It seems to me that this is much calmer. Does that mean being a grandmother is calmer? I have so many ideas in my mind about the things I would like to do when the baby boy comes. Right now my son and his wife live in Hawaii where he is stationed as a Marine. He is getting out in a very short time and they will be moving near me. I am so very excited. I guess this experience will give me a whole bunch of new things to write about. I will keep you all updated.
