The Caloosahatchie River
And my favorite.
Hurry up and wait!!!
I am always doing something. For some one. It seems though that the things that I want to see done the most get put off for later. I'm not even sure what those things are most of the time. I take care of my husbands grandmother, my Mom, go on field trips, take Robbie to practices, meetings, and appointments. Pay bills, handle all letters, correspondence, and birthday and holiday presents and cards for EVERYONE in mine and my husbands family. I'm an awesome aunt who lately has attended many a volleyball game and even a Brownie tea party. I pick up nieces and nephews from after school events and deliver them safely home. I am the President of my local Woman's club where I plan and run meetings and committees. Volunteer to work at many an event. Write news letters and news paper announcements. Watch the budget and make repairs on the club house.
These are all of the things I do because I want to. Not the ones I do because I have to. You know work, cook, clean, and don't forget the ever growing pile of laundry.
But what about me? I read in the middle of the night when it's quite and the house is still. Exercise? That's funny. When should I do that. Oh wait I could get up early and go before they get out of bed and before I go to work. Then maybe I could nap in class. Like the kids do. I started a Quilt, for Robbie, years ago maybe I can give it to him as a wedding present. The yard I was always so proud of has been taken prisoner by the weeds. But I'll get to that tomorrow. Now I have wasted my 30 free minutes and I must go do the dishes.
I think I'm just cranky, hormonal, and tired.
This is a desert rose in my front yard and some cool anchors.

My husband has finally talked me into going flying with him today in his little 2 seater plane. He has been flying for years and I have never been up with him. I tell him it is like the president and vice president being on the same plane. It's just not done. But my son is off with my niece who is visiting from West Virginia at my moms and it is a pretty day and I had no excuses readily available. DAM. SO I am meeting him at the local airport in a little bit. He will bring the plane in from its little private airport that houses it outside of town. So if I don't check in in the next couple of days send someone looking for me. It takes a few days to walk out of the Glades I'm told. I will take my camera and post some pics later.

I love him no matter what. Aren't we cute?
I attended a convention for GFWC LaBelle Community Woman's Club in Orlando Florida. As much as my son is convinced we did not spend the weekend riding roller coasters or hanging out at the water park. We did have some fun and a lot of education.
This is me pretty in pink with Lynn and Marion from our club while at convention.
I threw my son the most awesome 8Th birthday party he ever had last weekend. I'm not sure if we have completely recovered.
This is the super cool cake I made for the big party.
We had about 30 people show for the big day.
One of the things Robbie got for his birthday is this slip n slide type contraption that you are supposed to be able to skin board on. Supposed is the key word.
Casey shows them how.
Courtney and Miken
We told him that's not how you do it.
Emily says YUM!
Sallie and I sure love a party.
Robbie you sure had some pretty girls at your party!
So, your officially 8 years old.
Happy Birthday KID!!! We love you!!!

Robbie lost his first game but won his game tonight so he is stoked!
An amazing thing happened last night. I was elected to be the next President of the LaBelle Community Womans Club. I must be the youngest president in history of our club at least. I wonder what the national youngest age is? It will be a lot of work but I love volunteering in my community. It makes me happy and it is gratifying to come together with other women and accomplish so much. Wish me luck. I'm gonna need it.

I finished Pillars of the Earth before the accident and I have to say that is was GREAT. Someone said that there might be a part 2 I'm going to look. Sometimes when you get to the end of a book the author has concluded the story and it feels finished and you say that was a good story. Then others you say "that's it" what happens next???? I want to know what happens next.
While I was down this week I finished I Take This Land by Richard Powell. Good story. I enjoy books that take place in my own back yard it helps you relate to the characters in the story.
Has anyone read the book Oprah is pushing this week? It is supposed to be life altering. It would take an awful lot to be life altering for me.
Did you know that you can't lick your own elbow. You also can not touch your ear with your elbow. Who knew!
Well gotta go!
time to play ball

Abandoned light house at the Cay Sal Bank. Cooool. Great pic by Waddy.
Me and my honey at the Restaurant near Cayo Costa FL. where every inch of every wall is covered in 1 dollar bills. You sign your name to it and tape it to the wall any where you want. Jimmy Buffets was on the wall near the bar. They said that they sweep up thousands of dollars a year off the floor. It all gets donated to charity. How cool is that? Robbie took this picture.
