Well, I can't believe how long I have gone without updating this blog. That just gives an idea of how my summer was. It was crazy. I finally today was able to get a haircut since April!!!
The kids have gone back to school. I sent Greg off to high school, Emily started a brand new middle school that was just built and Mark started first grade at a different school. Liz is a junior this year so not much new for her except harder courses. We just got a postcard in the mail that it's time to order her class ring! Yikes. In addition, she will be 16 next weekend. I can't believe my little girl is 16. WOW. The time sure has gone by fast.
Our summer consisted of baseball, baseball and more baseball. Greg played Legion Ball for his High School. OUCH. They only won a couple of games. He played 3 games per week all over Tampa. I was so happy when it was over. I just hope the team will get better before Fall ball. He also went to baseball camp in St. Pete for week. He was so thrilled. Baseball from the time he got up at 7 till he went to bed at 10. This was the last year he will be able to attend. They only take them up to 14!
We were able to take a very quick trip to the Kennedy Space Center. We stayed in Melbourne which was absolutely breathtaking. The boys loved it but the girls and I kind of got bored. Mark was bored. I think he was expecting more rides. But, if you are into space, then you would love it.
I signed up to become a Stampin Up demonstrator. I thought I would give it a try and see if I can pull it off. Who knows. I have been playing with making cards and having a blast at it.
We finally got our bathroom done. We had to have the shower tile and tub replaced. The tiles were ready to fall off the wall. I guess when the house was built, they were some things they did wrong which allowed water to get back in the wall. Luckily we caught it before we had to deal with all the mold issues. Oh yeah, in the middle of that, my engine light in my van came on so $1,000 later it runs a lot better. Finally, this morning we woke up to the air conditioning not cooling. It has been running non stop with the heat. We shut it off for awhile and now it seems to be fine. Yikes. Hopefully our bad luck is behind us.
I finally got my hair cut this morning. I had a lot of it taken off so it's much shorter. Mark said the funniest thing. He followed me into my room and was watching me play with my hair and he says "you cut your hair off" I said, "Yep, it needed it. Do you like it?" His reply, "Yes. Now you look like a mom". Still trying to figure out what he me meant by that but it was funny.
Well, off to play with my stamps.............................
