Today, I finished laundry and the dogs room. All of their bedding needed washing and the floors cleaned as well. I made the Sunday drive to Costco to pick up a few things and then when hubby got home we had to take the Envoy to the dealership. All of the beeps and whistles were going off today. I stopped for gas and when I started it up again none of the gauges were working. I did not know how much gas I had, how fast I was going, the temp of the engine, etc. On Star was not able to tell me much. Yup, the computer is not talking to each other. Duh!!
So, this is what you get from me. I did not go anywhere this weekend that was fun like Debbie who went to the lake. I did not have my airman home for his birthday like Hallie did. And I did not get my airman home like Lea did. Both mom's had their Airman arrive for extended visits. CJ is home from Hurlburt Field in Florida and V is home from Vandenberg after completing her Tech School. She is home for a few weeks and then reports to Minot for her first duty assignment. We all wish her well.
It appears that Hallie must have had a great time yesterday because Kim-D was telling her not to take her hangover out on her. Wow, Hallie. Did BK take care of you or what?
I still plan to post pictures from the wedding a month ago and Key West last weekend. Gotta get the camera working and gotta get the kiddo to send me the ones from the wedding. I did take pictures of the guest room that Anna will be staying in. I need to send them to her so she know what her room will look like. Good thing I cleaned this weekend!

Now, I guess I am supposed to pass it on but who am I going to give it to? She gave it to most of the blogs I read already. I just learned how to link so yeah me.
- Hallie - I know she gets a ton of awards but she is so deserving. She does not have to duplicate her award giving (unless she wants to) since she was given this award at the same time. But Hallie is just an amazing blogger and Air Force Mom.
- Blender Kimmy - BFF of Hallie and one of the bogs I enjoy reading and she blogs like a real mom....very sporadically!!
- Lisa - I found her through Debbie. She is a retired Police Officer (I always wanted to be one) and we have come to find out we have people in common in Tulsa.
- Lauren - Another blog I found through Debbie. Lauren is in the Army in Iraq an dif anybody is Blogging with a Purpose it would be a soldier in Iraq. Go by and see her sometime and tell her I said HI.
I reserve the right to send out my 3 other awards at another date and time.
Have a great day!!

Here is one from the rehearsal. Josh is wearing one of those tux t-shirts. Those are glass tubes of pink and black sand. Instead of lighty a unity candle they poured the sand into one container. It looks pretty cool completed. We had the task of taking the container to the reception. We were praying for no sudden stops.
This is Shay (my airman) and Mallory at the rehearsal. These same young ladies were flirting with the bartenders at the reception the next night. Mallory is attending the Art Institute in Los Angeles. I think she is studying Visual Communication. Aren't they cute?
Hopefully I will get more this weekend to share.

I have been fighting it all week. Went in late on Monday and again on Wednesday. But today, I had to give in. Plus the people I work with pointed to the door when I walked in yesterday. I stayed in my office most of the day so I would not spread my germs. So today, I slept. After feeding the dogs and calling into work, I grabbed a blanket and curled up on the couch. Of course, this was after I took some Tylenol 3s. The dogs and I slept until after noon. Must have been what I needed because I feel 85% better.
Now we are having severe storm warnings in this area of Florida. It is actually 74 and windy outside. Lots of thunder and lightning but no torrential downpours yet. It is pretty normal for this time of here at this time of day but it must be bad if it is being transmitted across the bottom of the tv screen. I actually opened the doors and turned the AC off.
Last night I received an email from someone claiming to be an associate producer from the Animal Planet saying that they were doing a series on dogs called Dogs 101 (or something like that) and said their first episode was going to be on the French Bulldogs. She asked if my dogs did anything amazing or out of the ordinary. Nope, not mine. But I do know a gal in Denver who has 5 French Bulldogs and 3 of them are deaf. 2 of them are therapy dogs and she has won numerous costume contests with them. 2 of them participated in a city wide dog wedding and they also dressed up as Major Nelson and I Dream of Jeannie. So I sent Marleen the email and told her to contact the lady. It must be legit because they presented it to the producers today, Marleen sent pictures and they will be sending a film crew out to Denver in about 2 weeks. I told her she better let me know when it is going to be on. I will sure let you all know. All but one of her dogs are named after french food. You have Biscuit, Bullion, Brie and Bienet (sp).
Gonna try to find something to eat. Stay dry.

Sorry to hear that everyone in the midwest is having such terrible weather. It is hot, humid and stormy in Florida. Thunder cracked so close to the car yesterday that I thought we got hit. Hubby and dogs glad to see me (always a nice feeling) and now hubby is off to Alabama for the week. This is the prep week for the 10 month school he will be going to in July.
We were having problems with the High School not wanting to take in our exchange student. They said they were capped and could not take any out of district students. The principal called me on Thursday and said the district lifted their cap so they can take her now. Now I just hope the one we selected is still available! Wish me luck. I will keep ya posted.
