Calm

I'm sending the biggest hug out to Shelly.  I'm always fussing with  myself over what tag to use and out of the blue Shelly made this for me.  It's so perfect for today.  Thanks Shelly from the bottom of my heart!

I want to thank you all for your supportive comments yesterday.  My heart was torn but I knew what had to be done.  Megan is still going to Naples.  Her bestfrind, Kelsie, is taking their car which is 3 yrs old with 30,000 miles on it.  That was too easy.  I don't know why she wanted to take our car to begin with.  Raising girls seems to be so much harder than boys.  I'm still not thrilled that they are traveling as far as they are.  Joey and I did that trip last August.  We stopped in Chattanooga to visit some friends and spent the night.  It's a beast of a trip from Pittsburgh to Naples...1,600 miles.  I will pray that they have a safe trip.  That's all I can do.

Weather wise here is not great...far too much rain but I think the Lord is watching out for me.  I had some pre-cancerous patches removed last August and was told to avoid the sun.  Of course, I am a sun addict.  LOL..Deb, my pool is slowly getting cleaner but my compressor for my AC is not scheduled until July 14th.  Sears had to find another vendor for it.  Go figure...it's a Kenmore AC but they don't have a compressor for it in stock nationwide.  Thankfully, it's still plugging away after the first blow out.

My Friday story for my pool....I got home from the OVR fiasco and decided to run the vacuum.  I almost fell in the pool because I slipped.  Stupid me should have just fallen in like I do at least once or twice a year but no I decided to try and avoid it.  We have a deck surrounding the whole pool which I love.  There is one board that has hinges to add the chemicals to the skimmer thingie which I had opened.  Now, we're talking maybe 8 inches at most for this board.  Well, the right side of my body fell into the hole because the board was open.  LOL..how in the world this body of mine fell into there I'll never know but I did get wedged.  The end result is bruises and scratches all up and down my right leg and arm.  I thought I did something to my ankle but thankfully that has gone away.  A total klutz...that's me.

I have to work tomorrow which seems so strange because so many are off.  I almost feel like I am too and have to keep reminding myself that I need to get up tomorrow.

It looks like a storm is moving in again.  I got about an hour in the pool today which was so relaxing.  The forecast stinks until at least Thursday for the coming week.

My BF and I went to Days Inn last night.  Two weddings so the place was hopping.  I got my dancing fix in.

Now, it's off to the SuperCenter to do some shopping and to Sam's Club...hehehehe....Penny, I hope those hunks come over to my car.

Hope our AOL problems dissipate soon because it's starting to more than annoy me.........

Oh, I almost forgot....Megan went to visit her big sis, Becky, on Friday.  Becky is now a redhead and looks so much like Megan except with a thinner face.  She sent me a picture.  I actually think she looks so pretty.  She is tired of not being taken seriously as a blonde.  Since she's is starting the Ph.d. program in Sept. in microbiology, she wanted a change.  She took the picture herself in her bathroom as soon as they got finished so it's not a great one.

                        

Smiles today and Hugs to all........

Cute pic of your daughter.  I love the red hair.  I wish that I had it.  It runs in my family, but I was not blessed with it.  I am happy to hear that you got some time in the pool...again, I wish I had one of those too.  It is HOT HOT HOT in Minnesota today.  I would say 80.
Love Ya, Chris

I like the hair she looks great. I hope Megan is safe and has a good time. The pool sounded so relaxing, lol but no more falling. You could really get hurt. Be careful.

OK so now I understand...It's not kinky wild sex that you go to the Days Inn for...it's to crash wedding parties!  LOVE IT!!!  Megan will probably be alright on her trip.  I hope they will be careful...remember I'm the 1/2 way mark if needed!

Hi Chris, I love Becky`s red hair! I love being a redhead. :) I just got mine cut and colored.
I know how you`re feeling about your baby going on this long trip. I was in that same scenario last month. Funny how you and I often go through similar things. I sure am glad they got a different car to go in. Be careful out in that pool, lady, and do watch out for that sun, too.
Love ya,
Penny

Aww...you're welcome Chris.  I'm sorry bout your fall...I know that hurts.  ouch.  I'm clumsy too. lol  I was just asking Ryan why everything has to be such a struggle all the time.  And I did my Sam's club shopping yesterday...what a day!  That is such hard work for me to push all that stuff around then put it all in the car and home...we won't even go there! lol  Hope you have a great 4th of July.  Kind of nice having a break from groups, right?  HUgs and GBU, Shelly

I'm happy it worked out.
Ouchies to that fall!!!
I'm about ready to cancel aol and go to aim for free. You can still have your journal. I don't happen to feel like paying these people to drive me crazy anymore.
