Still here....

For some reason I cannot access my mom's wireless, so I have to sit on the floor and plug directly into her modem.  I'm too old to be on the floor.  My feet fall asleep.  My legs start to hurt.  Hence the reason I am not blogging as often.

We have been busy!  Read about some adventures here.  (The first two posts--yes, my daughter called 911, before she ate ice cream on my mom's couch, but after she painted herself with tar)

Abs and Em are off at camp, and I am glad to say that we have successfully made it 24 hours without a phone call.  I almost think it is easier to keep her (Abs) with me, because I can deal with her antics, and I don't worry about her as much.  This is supposed to be a stress-free time, but I am worried about her!  

Junior went to spend two nights with the outlaws.  They needed some time, and he thinks he is at Camp Oma.  They took him to DQ tonight and he had a gigantic milkshake, and I can imagine it was followed by a giant ice cream sundae.  I hinted that he needed to be potty trained to, and if she could potty train 4 boys, surely she can potty train one Junior.  We'll see.

I've had mexican food twice.  I went to visit my friend Abbey.   Junior luckily didn't break a window, did wet his pants, and we met the new neighbor when Abs threw noodles over the fence and I dragged her over there to clean them up.  Noodles.  Seriously.  She told me she was testing the power of her fork to fling food. I assured her that she could test it on her own forks after she had a college degree.  For someone so smart.....

Gunner and Sammy are holding down the homefront, and Gunner is not liking it.  He's lonely.  It's no fun cooking for one.  He has no one to go do anything with when he isn't at work.  Hmmmm....sounds similar to what I go through sometimes.  We'll be home soon enough though, and I can't wait to get back to the coolness of Colorado!  The heat here is unbearable.

I was at the gym today and even inside, I was sweating buckets.  

We went to see Ab's old teacher, and they both were excited.  It takes a special teacher to have had Abs for two years, and still see all the positive things about her.  I think I should nominate her for sainthood!

I visited my old school.  I miss my job.  I loved my school.  I loved my students.  I did see the ones who were still there, and they've gotten so big!  

Tomorrow I am meeting a friend to see some old stomping grounds.  Sic 'em bears!

We've seen bugs galore and even a gigantic tarantula walking across my mom's yard.  (picture from my sister)

Spiders don't get my goat, but roaches are a whole other thing.  Luckily we just worry about scorpions here.

I've worked out, swam, ridden bikes, shopped, read about 5 books, and eaten.  I'm going to miss Texas, but not this heat.

Very nice website! I am researching Army blogs right now because I have a brother in law heading off to boot camp in Missouri for three years in a week and I am just trying to prepare for it. I have recently published a post about his departure, check it out if you get a chance!

Oh my goodness! The sight of that spider would send me running for the hills!

It was so much fun having you at the house! Please come again. I will go and get some good white wine and we can drink that (or margarita's) and munch out all evening long. Last time you only gained 2 1/2 pounds, so let's got for 3 pounds this visit!!! C'mon back before you leave and I don't see you again for another 309878 years! We can come to you if you like. Just let me know!
