Last night I won a karoke contest at a local resturant...I got 4 tickets to a Brave's game on the night of fireworks, etc. for the July 4th weekend!! I was shocked, so was my husband and daughter that I actually competed and won!! Too funny!! I did the Lights song by Journey as a dare, and somehow, it worked. The DJ did not have any "chick" songs, so it was a toss up between Journey and Kansas, so I just pretended I was back in college driving alone singing with the radio!! After I finished the song, I realized that my legs were shaking!! It has been a while for me in front of a crowd. I had flash backs of singing in the church choir as a child!!
Today we didn't do much. It was hot and we got some rain, so we had meals out and watched some movies. Sometimes, it is good to have some down time! I have been running all week, so I welcomed the break!! I was also thankful that I didn't have to cook, which is always a plus! I have had a sinus headache for two days now, so I took some benedryl and read a book "If I am missing or dead". The book was a true story about domestic violence and how it affected a family when their sister was killed. It was really sad, but an interesting read. Mom gave me the book when she was here, and I have to admit that it was very hard to get into, but I managed to read it in two days. It is time to go to the bookstore now. I am all out of books, and for some reason, I need to read to relax these days.
We have plans to go to my brother-in-law's birthday party tomorrow, so that should be fun, as long as the rain holds off!
T is begging to change schools next year, so we are considering letting her make the move for two years, and then putting her back in a private school for high school..decisions are never easy, but i think she might be ready for a change for a few years. Nothing is definate yet, so I will be posting the decision soon. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Sail..another Patterson book!!!

I just finished another Patterson book..Sail. It was great, and I finished it in one day. Now, I am waiting on the next book. He needs to write faster!!! Or maybe I should learn to pace myself. I ended up buying the book. I can't seem to resist his books, and the library is slow in getting his books in for some reason! So, if any of you want to read the book, let me know and I will save it for you, or mail it to you.

Hump Day..

It was another hot day. T went to a birthday party and had a blast. It was a swim party, so it was a good way to cool down. She was very tired tonight, so I had some down time finally! Since the end of the school year, it has been nonstop slumber parties with the neighborhood kids, and the door bell has been ringing early each morning with the kids in and out of the house all day.
My mom was here for the weekend and I took her home yesterday. I really wish that she could have stayed longer. We really enjoyed her visit. We hung out around the house and had my cousin over for dinner on Sunday night. Also, my sister and great nieces came over to see us on Monday. We took the kids to McDonald's to play, and then they all came back to my house to visit. The kids had a blast!
