Where are my meds??!!!

Acck. My prescriptions are being held for ransom. They received my mail order but it hasn't shipped. It always ships within two days this has been four days. In two days I will run out. Things could get ugly. Effective at midnight tonight my old health care ends and hubby's is suppose to kick in. We shall find out. I just want to know if the old insurance paid for my last refills and are they shipping them or not. If they aren't going to, fine, I'll fill them through my new insurance. And if they don't have me in the system, I'll pay cash. I need my meds. I really really really need them. The nice people say it's being processed, whatever that means for four days. They say please allow two weeks, it has never ever ever taken this long before. Agggghh.
Yes, my pretties, it's my psych meds all of them...and there are a slew of them that I take. If anything my posts might become rather interesting..aggh I'm going to have a panic attack over not having panic attack meds. This sucks. I hate being in limbo. If I pay cash it's going to be expensive.They don't have generic for half of them. So I will have to pay an insurance premium for nada zip zero plus pay for my meds. That will suck, it will also leave a mark in the bank account. And for those of you saying why did you wait to go into the Dr. I didn't wait, there was nothing earlier and that appt was made two months in advance, and I did try to plead with the girl to get me in earlier. AGGGGGGGGGGGHHHH!
Fire, Fire!

I have tiki torches! Didn't you always just want to have tiki torches around your back patio? I have a pineapple garden, a banana tree leaning over with a full bunch of bananas, quite a few plumeria trees (the flowers they make leis out of) . The vegetables have all been pulled out and the soil is being prepped for the fall plantings. All that is left is mostly decorative. My roses, the gardenias.. I like it when it like this, all I need now is a pig roast, ukeleli music and a grass skirt...

I am one Domestic Diva

On the menu tonight: Roast Beef, Mashed Potatoes, Steamed Broccoli and Cauliflower, Salad, and Garlic Bread. All homemade by me.

For dessert, I used one of my wedding presents, The Sunflower cake pan from Williams-Sonoma, I didn't want to show off too much by using the Sandcastle one.

What's the occasion? A niece from my husband's side is coming to dinner, never mind the fact that we are the same age, but worlds apart. In fact I now have a few nieces and nephews all older than me..

It's pretty funny, I make them call me Auntie, just kidding..his family is a blast. The niece coming to dinner is from out of state, and she is a riot. She has been down in the Keys with the rest of the clan for their annual vacation. Lobstering, boating, fishing, drinking.

I spent a lovely morning in Victoria's Secret, where I did get my free pair of panties, but they were out of the mini dogs. Bummer. I still bought a few things while I was there. Yep, fell for the give them something free to get them in the store and they will buy more.

Last Thursday we went to see Ron White in Melbourne. Here's a brief clip. Probably only Funny if you have a Mini Cooper or an Ipod.

I slept all day. I mean all day. Honey came in to make sure I was okay at 3:30 it could have been 7 in the morning and I wouldn't have known the difference.
Ok I'm still sleepy and this has got to be the most boring blog in the whole world. I think I'll go back to bed and read.

Friday, July 28, 2006

Ahh the weekend. *sigh* finally.
Late morning sleep, Honey bringing coffee to me. 2 glorious days to do whatever we please. It's been a long week. No cell phone ringing, my friends know that this our married time together. No appointments to keep, no plans to make. Just puttering about the house for 2 long days. I have no urge to shop or go out, I just want to stay home. I'm tired, so very tired. I need rest. It's been a long week.

I'm awake, kind of. They got me pretty relaxed, however we had some tiny complications. They couldn't get a vein to use for the IV, which was not surprise to me. Finally Ms. Ratchett was called over to try. she's the nurse that was going to get that IV in no matter how bad it hurt. This was my first procedure that my hubby went to with me, my mom had most of the previous honors. Honey was a great help, he kept me laughing, and held my hand, stroked my head while they were trying to get the IV in for almost 30 mins of being jabbed in every arm and hand.
My biggest fear was that the pre op had not completely cleaned me out and I was going to have an accident on the table. That never happened ! Thank God, I would have been mortified, I know that it has probably happened before, but I damn sure didn't want it to happen to me.
So I am in there watching the tv screen of my ass, which didn't actually look as wide as I felt it was poking out of the hospital gown. The nurses were sweet and chatted me off to twilight zone, I do remember moaning and saying ow ow ow a few times, then more sedation. I also remember seeing one or two of the polyps that they had to take out. They yank them off with a special little instrument, then sear it closed to stop the bleeding. They also had to press on my belly quite a bit to get the camera where it needed to go. I have a loopy colon. All twist and turny. But mission accomplished with no explosions. The little polyps are in a jar being sent to be checked for cancer.
My stomach was and is still very sore. Normally when I go to Orlando for a procedure mom goes, and we go get blueberry pancakes and do some shopping while I'm all loopy in the head. Honey wasn't playing that game, we did go to Olive Garden for lunch seing how I hadn't eaten since Monday afternoon and it was 1 pm today. So since the nurses to hold him I was to rest today, we came home he put me to bed, which was just as well I wasn't expecting my tummy to be so sore walking. They must have really been twisting me around to see everything they needed to see.
So, I'm not sure which procedure I like the best, the Upper GI scope or the Lower GI scope. Actually I don't like either one.
Oh and if you have to have the lower GI done, it says you can eat any color jello except for red..I'd skip the blue ones too...unless you like the color green.

So I am confined here at home today getting ready for my Katie Couric procedure. I hate being confined, it make me very anti want to do anythingesque. So I figured i'd spend some time with my blogs, add some shoes to my Fashion Blog, add some freebies and contests to Diva Diet, however blogger is being very uncooperative about posting pics today. I don't have much to say today so somehow I will have to amuse myself, but I'm feeling very unmotivated. I may end up going to watch some TV but that would be interrupted every 20 mins or so to visit "The Library" as we like to call our loo. So I am so not a happy camper today. I'm bored, I want out, I can't go for my walks. I think I'll go see if there is laundry in the dryer that needs to be put away..

Holy Matrimony!

Everybody's getting married! At my wedding I knew of one couple who had tossed the idea of marriage around, but there hadn't been a formal proposal or ring yet. One of my best male friends said my Wedding was enough to make him want to get married again( he has been married twice) and that he had been faithful to his current girlfriend the whole time they have been dating (about a year). So I get an e-mail from him last night...He's getting married! This morning I was checking my e-mail and I have one from my girlfriend and our friend her now fiancee ,who had talked about it (getting engaged), and ta-da they are now officially engaged! See above picture! My cousin who sent the late Wedding Gift that I wrote about a few entries ago, said SHE is getting married in Sept ! Apparently when she was here for my Wedding she had told some of the family, but I was so busy, I had no idea until she had already flown home!

Keep in mind NONE OF US ARE IN OUR 20's! In fact out of everybody , I am the only one who had never gotten married before! Does this kind of thing happen after all weddings??? Kind of giving people the courage to take the proverbial plunge? Anywho, it's all very exciting!

I'm a lucky lucky girl!

In my FREE ELLE magazine I found a coupon for a FREE pair of panties from Victoria's Secret! I got my FREE subscription to ELLE and Saveur last year when I booked an airline ticket to my sister's house. While I was at my sister's house we got upgraded at Tori Amos's concert to FREE 1st row tickets!

MORNING! Mr. B starts his day that way everyday, followed by "I haven't had a bad day in 15 years!" He also says Goodmorning Beautiful! Hello Pretty Lady and other extremely positive remarks. And that shit eating grin, everyday, day after day. For two years he has never failed in his positive camapign. Can it really be true? Does he go home and kick his dog, curse at his computer, set booby traps for the mailman...
Mr. J went with him on a recent trip to Las Vegas. When they got back, do you know what he talked about the most? How Mr B. BOUNCED out of bed and yelled HAPPY GOODMORNING! everyday.
It can get a little old and sometimes you really just want to tell him to SHUT THE F*%$! UP. But he's so damn happy all the time it just wears off on you, and next thing you know YOU are yelling HAPPY GOODMORNING!

It's my blog, my space, my thoughts, and with some cheerleading posts, I'm going to keep going. This is for me. I lke journaling, paper and pen or keyboard and mouse. The result is the same. It gives me time to think, I reflect on my day- Who am I today? That's what I need to be writting about. There is no law stating I must be sane, predictable or stable. people can read it or else I wouldn't publish it, I'd be doing it in word. Bu readers or no readers I must be true to my moods. My focus shifts like the tides. And that's ok. I'm back on a music kick, so you may see some song lyrics from time to time, I want to post them because in the big picture it is something that is relevant to how I am feeling.

Like it or Not

Like It Or Not
"You can call me a sinner
You can call me a saint
Celebrate me for who I am
Dislike me for what I ain't

Put me up on a pedestal
Or drag me down in the dirt
Sticks and stones will break my bones
But your names will never hurt

I'll be the garden
You be the snake
All of my fruit is yours to take
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
This is who I am
You can
Like it or not
You canLove me or leave me
Cus I'm never gonna stop
No no

Cleopatra had her way
Matahari too
Whether they were good or bad
Is strictly up to you
Life is a paradox and it doesn't make much sense
Can't have the Femme without the Fatale
Please don't take offense
Don't let the fruit rot under the vine
Fill up your cup and let's drink the wine
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow

[Chorus X2]

no no you know [repeat]
I'll be garden
You'll be the snake
All of my fruit are yours to take
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow


no no you know [repeat]
I think I'm going through a personal emotional growth spurt. I feel like me but I don't feel like me. I'm trying to blog daily, and each day when I sit down to blog something new comes out. Then I go back the next day and read it, I think to myself, What was I thinking posting that crap? I have to decide is this blog for me and am I writing for me, or am I writing hoping somebody will read it?

If I were a Rich Girl Na Na Na Na Na.... I'd float on over to Luxurious Wings of a Social Butterfly and buy all my heart's fancy

This month's feature... Shoes..need I say more?

If I was a Rich Girl
See, I'd have all the money in the world, if I was a wealthy girl
No man could test me, impress me, my cash flow would never ever end
Cause I'd have all the money in the world, if I was a wealthy girl

Think what that money could bring
I'd buy everything
Clean out Vivienne Westwood
In my Galliano gown
No, wouldn't just have one hood
A Hollywood mansion if I could
Please book me first class to my fancy house in London town

All the riches baby, won't mean anything
All the riches baby, don't bring what your love can bring
All the riches baby, won't mean anything
Don't need no other baby
Your lovin' is better than gold and I know

If I was rich girl
See, I'd have all the money in the world,
if I was a wealthy girl
No man could test me, impress me, my cash flow would never ever end
Cause I'd have all the money in the world, if I was a wealthy girl

I'd get me four Harajuku girls to
Inspire me and they'd come to my rescue
I'd dress them wicked, I'd give them names
Love, Angel, Music, Baby
Hurry up and come and save me

All the riches baby, won't mean anything
All the riches baby, don't bring what your love can bring
All the riches baby, won't mean anything
Don't need no other baby
Your lovin' is better than gold and I know

[EVE:] Come together all over the world
From the hoods to Japan Harajuku girls
What? It's all love
What? Give it up What? (shouldn't matter) What?
Come together all over the world From the hood to Japan Harajuku girls What? It's all the love What? Give it up What? (shouldn't matter)
What happened to my life?Turned up side down

Original track and ting
You know you can't buy these things
See Stefani and her L.A.M.B I rock the fetish people you know who I am

Yes ma'am, we got the style that's wicked
I hope you can all keep up
We climbed all the way from the bottom to the top

See, I'd have all the money in the world, if I was a wealthy girl
No man could test me, impress me, my cash flow would never ever end
Cause I'd have all the money in the world, if I was a wealthy girl

I'm thinking of jumping on the band wagon. The band wagon of asking for money via the blog community. I don't have an credit cards except an American Express that I pay off every month. Everything else has been closed (by me) for awhile now. The reason I need money is to buy a new car.

Yep- so I now I am contemplating a blog to help me buy a new car. I need a new car, I drive to Orlando for Dr's visits about three times a month, sometimes more. I drive a 1998 Toyota Corolla, my doorhandles became cracked and brittle in the Florida sun, they broke off one by one. I have one left that is not broken. The intact handle is on the rear left passenger side. My paint job, a nice teal blue has faded in the sun, It leaks power steering fluid and oil. My mom calls it a death trap. My husband is ready to put us in a precarious situation by buying a car like yesterday...

We used most of our savings for our Wedding, I wouldn't change that for anything. I want to bank some money before we spend the last of our savings on a down payment on a car. So we are at an impasse. My honey thinks money grows on trees, he's very impractical when it comes to stuff like that. He wants to give me the moon and stars, but I would rather just have financial security and emergency money in the bank.

Really the Toyota isn't that bad, I put a cd player in about two years ago. The interior is clean and has my Hello Kitty seat cover, Happy Bunny bumper sticker and air freshner. It only has 79,000 miles on it and the only money I have ever had to put into it was for new tires.I never have to get oil changes because the oil leaks out before it's due to be changed. And when the steering wheel gets hard to turn you just add more fluid! Honey and Mom want me in a new car, they say they will feel better knowing I'm safe. Honey wants me to drive his Explorer to Orlando, but those things guzzle gas and it is 150 mile round trip!

So do I take the plunge and give it a go, do you think people would want to help me buy a new car?
Ok- so a lot of my posts are rather frivolous , I spend a good portion of my time seeing what's going on out in the world while I sit in my pj's. I look up people from my past, I look up long dead semi-famous relatives, I check arrest records of whoever pops into my mind. So basically I'm a snoop, but if it is on the internet, it's fair game to me. I found this site the other month, I don't know what prompted me to look her up, but I did and low and behold she has a web site. She worked for me part-time in '94 or '95 when I was managing a retail store, she was just starting out in teaching her craft, acting. And yes, I did attend a few classes.

Is there a full moon tonight?! OMG- are there some crazy ass lunatics running free today. And I don't mean the good kind. I mean I'm a clown or two short of a circus.. but these people were just plain wrong in the head! No offense to any of you readers because I don't think these people had the attention span to be sitting in front of a computer reading blogs. They might be writing some far left wing rant or far right wing rant for that matter, but not calmly sitting here drinking tea catching up on blogs.
Maybe something happened when the shuttle came home, some kinda sonic boom resounded in between the ears shaking what little sense they had right out of their nose. Maybe it's me. Maybe I'm the lunatic. I'm going to have study people on the day the shuttle comes home more often or when it leaves. I could keep a little notebook and for every lunatic I meet, I could put a little check mark in my little book. Wait, maybe I'm a lunatic magnet then they will want to know what's in my book... that could be a problem. I don't want to make anyone paranoid. Paranoid lunatics could be dangerous.

The shuttle is home yay!

I forgot it was coming back this morning, so here I am sitting at my computer, looking at a note from my husband and about to let the dogs out and BA BOOM! The shuttle re-entered the atmosphere safely. So I call honey and told him that a tree just fell on the house. He says slowly. "Honey, that's the Shuttle". "Are you sure?" I say?."Yes", he says. Then I say "I knew that, I was just being silly"

I really did know that, I heard him talking to a few people yesterday and of course the topic is the shuttle, much like other people talk about the weather. I was in the mall when the shuttle left, and here at my computer when it came back. See I do pay attention to this stuff.

I just finished reading The Pink Ghetto by Liz Ireland. Cute and fun read.
I was reading a new blog last night in which the author described her obsession with cataloging data. From lists of her YA books as a child, to sirens she heard while in her dorm room for one whole semester, and to this day it has grown into a profession (not the siren logging). I wonder if it's a way to make sense of seemingly random iformation.. To see if there is a pattern. Like instead of being scared when you hear a siren, if you focus on what time a day, what type of siren etc. You lose fact of the siren going to help somebody in need. That it is essentially a distress call. Some people don't give a second thought to a siren,as if it is an everyday noise like the ticking of a clock, they don't worry about where it's going or why it's going. Some people might say there are alot of sirens on the street and shrug. Other people don't even notice a siren went by at all.

I don't know why I keep thinking about this, maybe since I know the person, why didn't I know this about them? How much more do I not know? Do I need to know? Do I want to know? Then I wonder how much of me is still a secret or even just unknown. I could blog everyday for a year, but you would only know know what I choose to tell you. I can slant it, I can embellish, I can downright lie. You wouldn't know. Or would you?

Happy 41 days of Blogging to me! Yay! I have stuck with a hobby for more than a week or two (besides shopping). I am A.D.D.I.C.T.E.D! And people are actually reading or maybe just surfin, either way the counter is growing larger! Maybe by tonight I'll hit 1,000! That would be very cool. Oh, it's the little things that amuse me....

If Katie Couric can do it on TV...

I can have one done. Sigh. You DO know what I'm talking about right? I hate to even say it. It's a test for cancer that they begin testing for at 50. I'm not 50, I'm 32. My body is so wacky, I should have expected this. I've had 8 Dr's appts in the past month, all planned around my Wedding and my Honeymoon, I still had to keep my appts, no excuses. One Dr is is upset because I'm up 7 lbs after my honeymoon. I promised to drop it quick. But about this other thing, I'm not so keen on having a camera poking around where the sun don't shine. Hubby says relax it will be a breeze, I said when was the last time YOU had one done? He said never.

Starting today I will try to list at least one link to free samples. (ones that I know really send the stuff to you). I will also send a link to free contests I found. Why? Because I love all you bloggers out there that are trying to reduce debt but still deserve a pick me up!

Click here for Dove Samples
After this post I'll be adding a new blog strictly for free stuff, contests, steals and
My phone rings this morning:

It's Sunshine. (Not her real name)
hi Sunshine.
Did you get my e-mail?
Oh ok, I wasn't sure
I got it
I really am sorry.
( silence-I'm at a loss for words)

Wait, wait, let me back this up. Sunshine is a friend, or was a friend. She and I met through mutual friends in a women's group I go to. We started hanging out, because she like me, is free during the day and we had some things in common. Well one thing now that I think about it.
So she offers to help me with my wedding, so I introduce her to my trusty sidekick LaLa. We all meet to hash out ideas, keep in mind that I already know what I want, I just need some key people to help me organize my bridesmaids and decorating. LaLa and hubby never quite warm up to Sunshine and Sunshine wants to change everything. Yikes!
Sunshine also takes the initiative to seek out my mother, introduce herself and tell my mother all the things she's doing for my wedding. Great my mother is being stalked by strangers. So I let her know I wasn't to keen on her doing that, anyway that blows over. Sunshine quits going to our group, and wants me to come visit her at her house, when she is free. I e-mail her that if she wants to meet up, come to group and we will catch up. So she shows up once. Then I get an e-mail saying she can't come to the bridal shower, can I go to her house to pick up my gift?

This is the week of the wedding, I am crazy busy with fittings, nails, hair, out of town guests, food details, etc. ad nauseum... next I get an e-mail saying how disappointed she is with our so called "friendship" etc. How I am too busy to do anything with her etc. So she doesn't show up for the wedding, no surprise. Somehow we muddled through without her.

A friend who flew in from Maine for the wedding asked about her at the reception, and I gave her a brief rundown of the e-mail I got two days before my wedding about her being disappointed with me, and that I felt that maybe I was in the wrong. She said it was inconsiderate of Sunshine to be petty when I had so much on my plate. So she calls Sunshine and jumps all over her (as quoted by Sunshine).
My dilemma, is this friendship worth all the drama? Any advice?

BabyFred's new couch, she loves it!
Too Tired to Think...But I'm blogging anyways.

My mom went with me to my Dr's appt in Orlando today, she hadn't been to this Dr with me before, so I forget that, and she misses our exit. We manage to get there 5 mins late, after I sign in, I realize that when I switched purses (one of my Dooney's to my Via Spiga) I didn't bring a check book. I had no cash, as is typical, just my debit card and a bunch of Giftcards from the wedding. Mom has no cash (as per usual with her too), or a checkbook. She looks at me and says what kind of place doesn't take debit or credit cards? I said this place. Luckily, since I'm a monthly guest in their office they said I could mail them my co-pay. Mom then decides it smells funny in there, which I have to admit it does, I sniff, feet, chinese food and antiseptic. Nice really nice. Though I did notice that the receptionist was eating lunch at her desk and the smell could have been her homemade Indian Food. But even Indian restaurants smell better than that.

So I leave there prescriptions in hand, and I offered to take my mom for lunch, since she usually pays for lunch, tolls and gas when she goes with me. So we head off with her at the helm of her car and again I forget she is not familiar with this neighborhood which is very pretty and has some great shopping we haven't done in quite a few years. Unfortunately, it is rainy, I mean monsoon type rain. So we can't take advantage of the shopping..

I'm too lazy to write my own review of Winter Park so I stole one from the Sun-Sentinel based in Ft. Lauderdale, which was my stomping grounds until two years ago..Oh if those walls could talk (cause I don't remember much of the martini filled last decade)

Winter Park

So we do some half assed shopping, I got a couch for my BabyFred (the cat). IT WAS ON SALE! I'm not a crazy cat lady, I swear, I'm married, I have a husband, two dogs and a cat. I do lunch. People call me! I don't wear my pj's all day! We go for dinner with other people, the neighbors say hi! See, I'm not a crazy cat lady.

The way I look at it, I have to go back to Orlando again tomorrow, so I can shop then if I feel better. Hubby wants me take mom with me again to the Dr, but it may be easier on my own. Mom is gung ho on planning a shopping trip to Paris this Novemeber.... She's already like mentally packing her suitcases. So now I have to convince hubby to take the plunge and jump the puddle with me (I've been to Europe and other places many times, he has not gone outside of USA and Canada). Wish me luck, I'm going to whisper... Paris you want to go to Paris with your wife, you really want to see the Eifel Tower, The Louvre, and Versaillies.

My luck he'll dream about Paris Hilton all night and he'll wake up and want me to dye my hair blonde and stop eating.

Pity Party Post. Boring, whinny and useless.
Rainy, stormy day. I feel like shit today. I would still be in bed, however the guy is here installing my dishwasher, garbage disposal and faucet. Of course the "kids" aren't happy being put in their bedrooms while he's here. I had them outside but the weather sucks. Fletch, the beagle took himself for a walk, I let him out on the screened porch while I was letting the dishwasher guy in. I had to chase him to the corner of our street. Usually it's just Zeus, the Doberman I have to put in a room when strangers come over. As I came back with Fletch tucked under my arm Babyfred, the cat was headed for the door. So they are all banished now. At least they aren't scratching the door or whining to come out.
I've felt crappy since Friday, and there is no chance of a day of rest till Friday. However, I think mom is going to Orlando with me for my Dr's appts. That takes a burden off me driving.

Yay! I don't have to go to Orlando to the Dr today! I wasn't loking forward to the drive, it's an hour each way, plus waiting time in the Dr's office. My labs weren't back yet, so they called and asked if I could come later this week. So I tried to make it for Wed. when I have to go to another Dr in Orlando, no can do :(
Hopefully my mom will want to go at least one of the days since she is off work those two days.
I've already vacumed (thanks, Roomba!) and some chores, but as I figue it, I'm ahead of the game since I wouldn't have gotten anything done today if I had to go to Orlando.
I could nap, but I'm a little to keyed up for that. So here I am blogging, if I do too many things around the house, hubby will not be happy. I'm not suppose to overexert myself, but I get so damn manic sometimes it's hard to stay out of trouble. I will go finish the laundry. That's an easy chore, and I hate, hate, hate when he does the laundry. His chores are the kichen, the trash and the gardening. Mine are laundry, bathroom and our bedroom. Everything else is on a need to be done basis, and whoever gets to it first.

There really is an Alpha Dog in every pack of two or more dogs, it isn't the biggest dog, it's the smarter dog. Guess which one of mine is the alpha dog...

If you add the cat into the mix..she becomes the alpha.

My first designer dress..

I can remember back to 1992 when I first owned a designer dress. My mom bought it for me, it was by a designer who had just launched her new line in 1991, Anna Sui.

I loved that dress, I still do, in fact I still have it. I don't even have my prom dress anymore (which was not really a prom dress). I wore my Anna Sui for years, I treated it with respect, it never ended up on the floor. I don't think Anna Sui was even well known back then. I bought shoes to match each season and new costume jewelry as well. I wish I still fit into the dress, I would wear now if I could. Oh so classic cream, floaty, dreamy, a little sexy but modest. Bare legs with strappy sandals, beige tights and pumps, I never went wrong when I wore that dress. Enough fond memories...

Out of her Fall 2006 line I would choose to buy this outfit. Black, textured, high boots, big dark glasses . Change the shoes, lose the jacket and lighten the hoisery, very versatile. I love it!

I was right about the honeymoon pictures. There are only about 5 pics I won't burn. We never even dressed for dinner even though we brought clothes for the formal dining room which we only went to once on a casual night. We just chilled while living in swimsuits and comfy clothes. We would go back and do it again together, even though hubby is 6'4" and had a hard time in the shower that was so tiny, but for our next cruise we won't be locked into a certain week, hopefully we will be able to get a suite for the next one. I think we will stick with the 5 day ones, we don't want to totally blow up! I put 8 lbs on in 5 days! So I'm back to a strict diet.

Sad, sad, sad weekend for blogging. Everybody is gone for the 4th of July Holiday. We of course just returned from our Honeymoon Cruise and are just hanging close to home. I guess I'll just sit here by my lonesome and find ways to improve my blog. Why? Because I know blog readers need their daily "fix". I could of course go back to sorting my mp3's and make new playlists to load on my ipod.

News: My sixteen year old niece failed her drivers test. She blew through a stop sign. Not good. They already had a car lined up as one of her birthday presents. Whoops.
