Victors 12th Birthday Party!

This week has been a very long and busy week. Today we went to Boondocks for Victors (my nephews) 12th birthday party. It was a BLAST!

They have Water bumper boats, slick track, race cars, video games, everything you can imagine.

There were about 11 of us total and it was a little pricey, but worth seeing Victor having fun and enjoying his time with his friends.

He got the gift that he has been asking about for a few months now, ROCKBAND!

He loves video games and wants to be a video game designer when he gets big. I say go for it, HELLO have you seen the money Microsoft makes these days???

More to come,

New Tattoo

This weekend was kind of a busy one. My sister and I got new tattoo's representing her 3 boys. They are my world! (don't worry, we kept room for add-ons.) It is on the nape of our neck and it is a trail of 3 ladybugs. We got them done together and it is of the same thing.

I think this is the worst one that I have had. My foot hurt a lot to and it was a home made one, so it is a toss up. Melissa said that it was worse than having kids! If that is the case, child birth will be a piece of cake for me ha ha.

We had a bbq at Melissa's today and one of our old friends came to visit from Arkansas. It was nice to see her and her kids.

The picture above is of my tattoo freshly done.

We got our pool put up this weekend, but couldn't swim in it for a day because we needed to put the shock treatment in to kill the oxygen (sounds harsh huh) so algae can't grow in the water.

We blew up Tamaurus's (nephew) pool and let him splash around in it for a while. He is SO cute. I think it thought it was an outside bath, cause he wouldn't leave his shorts on lol, he wanted to swim nakie.

Melissa said that she thinks he got stung by a bee, poor baby.

Well there is more warm weather to come and I am sure we will get plenty of sunshine and swimming in.

Happy Swimming!

I am VERY excited for spring. April showers brought May flowers, well at least some (I still need to plant the others). I am looking forward to the time with family in the pool, the smell of hot dogs barbecuing on the grill , the chirping of the blue jays outside the front door, the sound of children laughing. I love the sounds of spring the most I think. Everyone always seems to be so happy and cheerful! I spent all day today outside fixing up the yard, planting more flowers and putting up the pool. I can't wait!

Happy Spring @-----{----

First Blogging message

So here goes my "official" first blog. I got the idea from a girl at work and hers is SO inspirational, I thought I would try it.
(Thanks Cim)

So I am not really sure how to get started but here goes. A lot of things have been going through my head lately and I wish I had the courage to just "go" with some of them.

I am somewhat satisfied where I am at this point in my life, but mainly not so much. I want to have a "career", and not so much a job. I want a family, a house, a reliable car. You know the "dream" life.

I know one of these days I am going to turn back and think "WOW, I missed it". I realize that I am going to wish these days hadn't gone by so fast and I have had some good times, but call me a little ungrateful if you will, but I want more.

I guess I shouldn't rush things and enjoy my life rather than wishing that it go faster, or change, or get better. After all, I do have my freedom and the option to make choices and mistakes, mostly without judgment, which plenty of other people are not fortunate enough to have.

So I guess I will put on my "happy face", grin and bare it and enjoy life as it comes! It could be worse.
