June 30, 2006

It's Official !!!
As of 11:30am today we are no longer
the owners of the house in
Greenbrier ! ! !
After 2 years of trying to sell the place
the right buyers came along and
it is a done deal ! No more trips to
Greenbrier to fix this or that. .
Tom will no longer have to spend a day
grading the driveway and we will no longer
have to go out there to mow and take
care of the yard .

It has been a while since my last post
Not much going on -- just hot and humid here
Serena's camera is acting up so I have no new pictures of Jack..
I am going thru withdrawal !!!
I want to go visit but - flights are always full and gas prices
are INSANE !!!
As usual summer is here and I am hiding in the house.
This weather SUCKS ! I never thought I would say these words.
I don't know how Tom is able to work outside in this heat.
I wish the city had a better central station for him to work at,
one that has a few modern features.. A/C - being the main one.
Some nice lifts , so he would not have to go in the pit to work
on the fire trucks.. Ahh dreams..
Maybe we will win the lottery (HAHAHAHAHAHA)
and he can pack it up and retire . Wouldn't that be nice.
But 1st Arkansas would have to legalize a lottery here--
but they won't becausethey are afraid it will be less money
for the churches..
I don't think I have even been in a state that has as many churches as AR.
Look at any pole barn or store front and you can bet that it has
been or will be a church. The odd thing is some of the churches are H U G E
and have monster parking lots.. Then you find out the "preacher" has put all of this in his name .
If they spent as much on school as they do on churches , this would
be a good place to raise kids. Right now the
schools are rated so low , that
never mind -- I don't need to get myself started again...

Sunday Night

It was a lazy day for me
I actually slept most of the night last night.. What a relief.
We went to Red Lobster for dinner tonight-- I was due
for a seafood fix. Only problem- the damn place was so
cold you needed long underware and mittens.. Jeez!!
I asked the waitress what time the penguin show would start.
That finally got us about 3 min of somewhat
warmer temps. It will be fall before we go back to that place
and we will take winter clothing.
Okay, I'll admit it
I have a new addiction
LESPORTSAC purses, tote bags,
cosmetic bags and weekenders.
So anybody that has them just sitting in the
closet or basement-- Box them up and send them to me
I can pay for them , but keep the price low and
remember that I am not to proud to accept
Okay- on to other things....
What do you think of a "friend" that all of the sudden
does not aswer your calls or emails ??
We are talking LOCAL calls
Pretty damn cold huh.
You know who you are ...
'nuff said

3 a.m.

Here are the latest pictures of Jack Thomas

He went for his 4 month check up on May 26.

He is a happy , healthy , normal PERFECT baby boy !!!

17 pounds and 24" tall


What can you do at 3 a.m. - not very damn much !!
I am wide awake and have had a sleeping pill -
that was at 11:30 so I guess I will write..
I would scan but am afraid the noise would wake Tom.
He is going to an auction today, but he has somebody
coming to look at the hot tub cover at 7am.It was hail
damaged last year and it really does need to be redone.
Serena & John have had some lookers - hopefully
the house will sell fast and they can relocate with a
minimum of stress. It will be so nice to have
them closer.
I think I will end this for now and sort thru the stack
of junk mail that is laying on my chair.
If I am not bored to sleep by that project, there is no
chance for sleep tonight .
