Beach day on Memorial day weekend.

Yesterday was spent with my sister, her friend Katie, my niece Autumn, and Katie's little boy Drew. Not even a car that conked out on me 3 miles from meeting them could keep me down. Yeah the old faithful Honda pooped on me. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed it's nothing bad. We finally made it to the beach after AAA and the towing got my car into the shop, and we had fun, my sister and Katie got sunburnt, and the kids and me stayed in the water and just had fun, we didn't get burnt at all. It was a perfect day for it, We got back to the local swimming pool late, and I took them swimming, while the mama's got naps. Taught Autumn how to dive in the pool, and swim a little more. We had a wonderful time. Mike and I went to church this morning, and I've been napping ever since we got back. I guess they wore me out.

Babysitting Aaron

Today was a special day because we got to babysit little Aaron for the first time while his mommies went to the movies.   He's so sweet, and we just really enjoy being a part of his life, and him being in ours, we really enjoy being around Valerie and Rochelle too, they are really great women.   We got a little crazy with the camera.

Seems I never write in here anymore.   Last night was the end of an era for me.  The final show of Will and Grace.  I've been watching this show on and off for years.   I mainly like to watch the reruns.   I never followed it religiously like Mike does, plus he owns Season 1 and 2 I think.  It was kind of sad watching the last show, and the preshow was really good.  Those four are wonderful actors.   Well I better get back to work.

Thinking on Thursday morning

Seems lately I'm often wishing I could see what lies around the  corner in life.  Trying to prepare for it, control it, or avoid it.  I know I can't see around the corners in life.  So what am I trying to see?  Well our friends Valerie and Rochelle rent out a lot of different property they own, and they showed us this nice three bedroom apartment, with a sun room, a little breakfast nook area.   It's so much more room than what we have.   So we play the game of trying to figure it out, can we afford it.   Then we weigh things out, and things are always diffrent between two people.   I feel I found more pros that outweigh the cons, and Mike's cons outweigh the pro's.    The main thing is I don't really want to make the move unless we are agreeing that we think this is the best thing for us.  But as I said earlier, we sure can't see around corners.   So I'm putting my trust in God.   I feel a little more reassured this way.   So whichever direction things go I'm o.k.   Every day I am cared for.  I know who holds the future, and I know who holds my hand: with God things don't just happen-  Everything by Him is planned.  So what am I saying, I'm saying I'm not going to worry about tomorrow.  It's in God's hands.  Yesterday I took some pictures of Wendy, it was really hot and humid, but I think they turned out pretty good.

Opening of the beaches

Yesterday was a perfect day for opening of the beach's, It was quite beautiful, and it was our third opening of the beaches together. This was my first one not living at the beach, and I sure enjoyed it but realized how much I miss the beach. I love my life now. I just saw many people I spent hours and days, months and even years of joy with. I realized how I don't spend the time with them that I once did. It was great seeing my cousin Michelle and her girlfriend Jelchen. I saw my old roomie that I lived with for a year and a half and it was really great seeing her, I thought about all I've been through in the last 10 years. Wow! I also saw Linda and Mark, our friend Bernie and Hector. My friend Mary. I also met new people and that is always a pleasure and one of my favorite things, especially when they have as pretty smile and a great personality like Vicki did. Mike was a good sport and kept up pretty good, but finally had enough and decided it was time for us too go, although I did show my butt a little because I didn't want to go it was time, and I crashed when I got home. We also brought our friend Lanny from church with us out there.  It was one of those days I just didn't want to end.
