Catching up...

Well, I finally got that netbook I have been mentioning and so here I am on the train and doing my blog. I told you it would make a difference. I don't bring it every day, but I bring it enough I will will be able to blog more often.

I don't know if I mentioned it, but my brother is going to Landstuhl Germany for a year. So, I went home for a few days this month to visit with him and my parents, both of whom I have not see since Christmas. It was a nice visit. My brother's dive team from work thru a party with dad picking up the ticket for a 120 lb piggy that they smoked all day. Delicious and a lot of fun at the party...I'll have to post the pics of us doing a rendition of YMCA with the hats...

I was supposed to go to training in Austin this week, but have been fighting for the access to the system I needed in order to go to the training. At the last minute last week they decided to give it to me, of course this is after my regional Chief Finance Officer had to go above their heads...ridiculous. So, now both me, the Section Chief, and the supervisor under me will be gone at the same time. Not what I wanted to happen, but cannot be avoided...darn it. This week half the staff and majority of my experienced staff are gone at the training so we are busting it to keep the office going and preparing to not be here next week.

My sister-in-law and her family are coming to visit for the weekend on August 7th. Hubby and I are very excited about that...ready for Tiger Woods WII Golf...LOL...of course Dan has Dori practicing so they can beat us...too funny...Kerry is planning on decorating the house for Alex's birthday and he is all giddy about that...ah...such a simple life....LOL

We are hoping to go visit my other sister-in-law in Houston the weekend of the 21st as we have not seen her or her children since 2006.

Then on the 24th I am headed to Indianapolis for a conference, returning on the 27th. So, a pretty busy month ahead.

Oh, I need some more ladies for my ladies only fantasy football league. Anyone interested? If so let me know and I'll give you the link and password.

Well, that is all for now. I need to go catch up on friends blogs. Namaste!


  1. Netbook, huh?

    Well, then....Now I'm really, really going to have to check it out. (only threatened to before....LOL)

    BOY is there a busy month on the agenda....never a dull moment, eh?! :-)
