Goodbye for now

Goodbye dear blog.
I have a job with a long commute.
Enough said.

You know....if you are call it "cycling" - NOT "biking".

So - Jon, Bill and I were "cycling" to the lake the other night.
Jon took this pic of me drinking from my waterbottle with his iPhone
(cool people don't call an iPhone a "cellphone").

It was way lighter than the picture looks.

Not Blogging

Can you tell - I am not blogging.
What we've been up to:
1. Trip to El Paso
2. Surviving thunderstorms with a "stoned" dog....I wonder if she will have to go through rehab.
3. Apply for job after job after job after job after job after job........
4. Had bone graft done on tooth......chatted the whole time during procedure - on happy pills.  (I love those pills)
5. Jonathan living with us.....surviving his contiual pursuit to get me to exercise with him everyday: pilates, tae bo, biking, aerobics......shhhhsh!
6. Tried planting grass seed.....I mean really - how long does it take to grow!!!  I think most washed away with the storms.

Springfield Trip - Bringing Jonathan to Texas

I just got back from my wonderful trip to Springfield - got to spend time with the boys and then Jonathan and I drove back to Texas where he started his internship today! Here are pics to remember the trip.....

Will and Jonathan met me at the airport with these wonderful "Cake Pops" (Will's Mother's Day gift to me). Hayley should check into these - they are round little cakes + icing and then covered with this candy coating. Wonderfully delicious!

Of course I had to have my hair done while near the stylist!

Lunch with Jonathan and Jaime!
She's such a cutie!

Where Jonathan will be living next year with 4 other guys from his fraternity!
Doesn't this look like a college house! They are one block from the stadium and the building where all his classes will be held next year.

Jonathan coming back from his last final for the semester!

The final act of the semester - selling those expensive books to get enough money for a pizza!

Meeting Will and Kelly

Back with Pictures

Okay Okay - so I've been told.......UPDATE YOUR BLOG!
Had a grand Mother's Day - Carol and Jonna came to visit. They brought Belle - their little poodle dog - cute as a button. Dogs did great! Belle was very well behaved and Kayla did not eat her. Forgot to get a picture of Belle!

I love this man!

Carol's new camera - crazy man in background. Wait - is that the man I love?

Duck lips - although Jonna looks cute with duck lips (more like a pout)

Sexy Jerry picture.

Mother's Day Mimosas - Bill made us brunch and drinks! I was on the cellphone with Jonathan - he was wishing me a happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day Sisters!
(I love this picture!)

Complain Complain Complain

1. A complainer has a dis - eased heart
2. A complainer is seldom a party of one
3. A complainer says God withholds good from me

Verse in song: "Make my want be what I have".
Makes me look at what I have and be content. (Antidote to envy is contenment)

Coffee and Taxes

We got to meet Lecia and Elaine for coffee (as well as Jerry and Lauren but I didn't get a picture of us all - DARN!). Such a good visit!!!!!

Bill and I did our taxes EARLY and used TurboTax. We've used it before and this is the first time we've gotten back down to the basics where we could use it again. It was so fun.... It's very easy to use and walks you through it. Plus - there is this little ticker in the upper right of the screen that constantly tracks your refund or how much you have to pay. So, depending on the amount you put in the starts ticking off....just like a slot machine.
Can be quit exciting at times!
