Not So Bad

My Monday is off to a good start so far. I got to sleep in 20 minutes because I drove the kids to school this morning. The oldest child is going to an overnight fifth grade camp and I didn't want her to have to ride the bus with her duffle bag, pillow, and sleeping bag. Any day that you get to sleep in is a good day in my book.

It seems that I entertained some of you with my "Things" post, lol. I'm pretty surprised that I didn't get any negative comments. I'm not complaining, I'm just surprised is all.

So, our weekend went along pretty good. Friday was LOUD with the oldest child having a sleep over but they were so exhausted from the graduation activities that they fell asleep on their own around 10:30.

Saturday, we went to the beach. It was about ten degrees cooler at the beach, making it a chilly 90 degrees, heheh, and the water was perfect. I went boogie boarding with the oldest child and we had a lot of fun. All four of us ended up with a sunburn despite wearing 50 SPF sunblock and only being there for two hours. The weather here has been outrageous with highs in the upper 90’s and the heat index in the 110’s. I don’t know if I’ve said this before, but I have a bad feeling about the hurricane season this year. Our weather has been completely different this year than last, and last year we didn’t have any hurricanes hit the N.C. coast. It makes me happy that the kids will be in Ohio for part of the season.

Anyway, Sunday we didn’t do a whole lot of anything. I had to put in some time with my work because I got a little behind with stuff going on Friday and Saturday. The Mister had to work yesterday too because he took Friday off for the graduation. He got some neato pictures of the airshow from the roof of his building though.





This is Fat Albert. It’s the support plane that flies with the Navy’s Blue Angels. The Mister has gotten a ride in this before when we lived in California.


Today, I have some work to do and I’m going to my friend’s ultrasound appointment. They won’t video tape it for her so I'm going to record it with my nifty new camera. Did I mention we bought a new digital camera Friday? Yeah. It's nifty.

One last thing...I typed this post in Microsoft's Windows Live Writer. Me likes. Inserting pictures is super easy. It's a free application if any of you want to check it out for yourselves. I imagine it would make posting way easier for those of you with multiple blogs. You can also preview before you post, view the source code, insert tags, among many other things.


  1. I'll have to check out that application!

    I'm so jealous you are near the beach.

  2. hey I will check that out,about the windows live writer, is there a web need to remember the people that that are not so tehnical. I bet you will be posting lots of great pictures now that you have that cool camera.....You have not told us what kind.....

  3. Pam~~Didn't you just get back from a week at the beach??? ;)

    Arlene~~I answered your questions in a new post. I'll do my best to start posting more pictures. I know my blog is pretty light on the visual side of things.

  4. Pictures of planes! I love military jets. I work near a reserve base and often can see the big carriers taking off and landing. I get such a thrill at seeing them. I'm crazy, I know.

    Your visit to the beach sounded nice. I need to talk my husband into going one of these weekends now that the weather is turning warm again.

  5. LF~~I love military aircraft too!! I don't think you're crazy at all. I dearly missed the air traffic that I was used to seeing in San Diego all the time during the years we lived in Vermont. I have to say though, I prefer helicopters over jets. It's probably because I can recognize them in the air whereas I'm completely clueless when it comes to fixed wing. The CH-46 and CH-53 and the AH-1 Cobras are my favorites. The Osprey are pretty cool too.


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
