It has just been unbelievably humid here the last few days! I just can't stand it. Due to this wonderful humidity, I have been having a terrible time sleeping at night, since Danny does not like have the airconditioner on, ugh. Last night I moved to the couch in the living room (which has no aircondition either) and had the fan blowing right on top of me. Needless to say... rough night.

I've been pretty busy, trying to keep Joseph IN school. I really don't know what to do with this kid. I helped him get a job last week and as far as I know, he didn't make it there today. He made it there to work on Friday. Also, it's still pretty tough because he is still doing his regents test (if he is even showing up for those, who knows). Its not like he is working 8 hours a day. He is working between 3-4 hours right now until school gets out. I can not wait for the end of school already! I'm ready to kick him to the curb.

Lets see..... hmmmm... oh yeah, DJ got another car! This time its a Pontiac Firebird. This kid just doesn't stop. Thank goodness he is the good kid.

We also got a trampoline yesterday! This is going to eventually be some extra form of exercise for me. While I was in Vegas, my sister and I looked into taking an aerobic trampoline class. Let me tell you. It is HARD work! I was tired after 15 mins of jumping. DJ has been on countless times since we got it up yesterday. He loves it.

Other news.... Shannon is coming home next week for a vacation. She is very excited and so is Danny. I think that's about it for now. I hope to catch up with everyone this week and post again tomorrow (don't hold your breathe though). Have a great week!

again! I can't believe it. Things here have just been soooo hectic, that I'm just happy that I can visit everyone else's blog. Today, I have a little time to spare... ohhh boy. I'm having 6 trees cut down from the yard as we speak and of course I didn't take any before photos. I hope I have a few from the past. It sure looks pretty naked over on that side of the yard.
As usual, Joseph is still giving me a run for my money! I just don't know what I'm going to do with this kid. I've pretty much lost him I think. I'm actually right at the point of no return for him. If he continues and screws up just one more time, he's outta of here. I gave him a warning 2 days ago, so lets see what happens.
Other than that, It's just been pretty hot and very humid here lately! ohhhh yeah.. DJ wrestled last Saturday and ended up in 3rd! I could not believe it. Here are a few photos.

Ok... I'm out of here for now. Hope everyone has a terrific weekend.

Its a Happy Day!

First of all.... 70... yep 70 years ago today, my dad was born. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!

It's almost hard to believe that he is 70. I personally don't think he looks 70, thats for sure and he definately doesn't seem 70 (except for the fact that he calls me 20 times a day about the same thing, lol).

I remember when I was about 18 thinking.... WOW 70 is old! Nowadays (is that a word?hmmm) 70 is still young. Now that I'm going to be 40 something in just 2 short days it really makes me think. Am I going to look 70 when I get there? I sure hope not. I dont' think I would mind looking 60 at 70, who wouldn't, right?

Well, as I keep mentioning, I still have photos of Vegas. I think I only have Red Rock Canyon left for you. So here we go. Here is Sandy (my BF) at the Red Rock Canyon Information Center.

The first stop on Red Rock Canyon drive.
Sandy climbing, lol.
At the highest point.

Ok... I'm making this short and sweet. I'm exhausted, rough day. I need to try to rest up for this hectic weekend! Hope everyone has a great evening and wonderful Friday.

It's June!

This is a very busy month for me! First, there are sooooo many birthdays that its crazy! There are 3 in just the first week! (of course one of them is mine, lol).
Then on Saturday, June 7th (hint.. my birthday, lol) DJ will be wrestling for the EMPIRE STATE GAME TRIALS in Greco-Roman, plus... we are suppose to be at the Annual Wrestling Awards Picnic (which we haven't missed but once in 15 years). Needless to say.. I'm not so sure we will be making it there. It all depends on how well DJ wrestle's and how many guys are in his weight class. I hope there aren't many this way it goes a lot quicker.

Next week, Joseph has 8 finals that he has to take and then I think he has 2 regents tests. Why NY still has regents tests I'll never know! I think it really stinks. Thats all they do is test.. test... and test.

Then of course back to 3 more birthdays in week 3! Thank goodness no one is graduating in this house this year. Hopefully, Joseph will get his act together and be able to graduate on time next year.

So... I still have Vegas Photos to post!!! I know... You all were just waiting to see more, weren't you? Well here you go.
We went up to the strip (I like to call this section the 4 corners). Its the intersection where you have MGM, Tropicana, Excalibur, and New York, New York. Plus, we walked down to M&M World which is always fun.
Here are a few photos from M&M World.
This is Excalibur from afar.
Here is the Statue of Liberty in front of the New York, New York.

Ok, thats enough for one day! Hope everyone has a Terrific Day!
