Hey Y'All!

I am home from Texas. I had a great time on my trip. I could relocate to Austin and live very happy. I had a wonderful visit with all my friends their. I got to see a ton of things, eat great food and wonderful shopping, see list below. It did rain some but no flooding where I was, while I was their. I actually had beautiful weather, not to hot, not to much rain and not to humid.

I saw:
The Alamo
San Antonio Riverwalk
Southfork Ranch
Where JFK got shot
UT, GO Longhorns!
LBJ Presidential Museum
Texas State Capital
The Bats, fly out from under the bridge

I ate at:
Salt Lick BBQ
Cocktails all along 6th street
Alamo Draft House, Dinner and movie
Reunion Tower (in Dallas), cocktails
Rudy's BBQ
PF Chang
Chuy's, where Jenna Bush got busted for under age drinking

I shopped at:
San Marcos Outlets, better than Vegas
The Domain
And Austin's Vintage District.

Poop update. She is a dare devil! She has a black eye, various bumps, lumps, bruises and scratches from where she fell in the gravel. I swear she could sit perfectly still and some how fall and land on her face! We did her pre-op appointment yesterday and she is ready to have tubes put in on Monday. Pray that this works!

Scott has finally taken over the job in San Ramon. Also they got the changes done for the plans for the house in West Sacramento and they are back with the city. It looks like they will be breaking ground their soon.

Vacation Has Started!!!

Only 14 hours until my plane leaves. I can't wait to see Nathan & Tony and Dave & Liz. I have so much still to do before leaving for the airport. I can sleep on the flight though. I need to make a list of stuff to pack, get Poop's stuff ready for Scott, go tanning, do a little shopping and take Poop to Linda.

Speaking of Linda they got the final inspection on their house last Friday. We helped move and clean the last 4 days. They spent their first night in their NEW house last night. Allison did good in her big girl bed. Sparky is having a few issues but that dog ain't right anyway. Poop will be their first overnight guest tonight. We already call the spare room Poop's room.

Poop will get tubes in both ears on Monday July 2nd. I will take her for pre-op on the 27th when I get home. She is doing okay. She is still on medicine until the surgery but it isn't killing the infection.

Scott is trying to figure out what to do with the baby for a week. I have a feeling she will get a lot of Jamba Juice. I hope he remembers to get her Pizza bread too.

204 Days...

Until Christmas. Can you believe it! Where has the year gone? For my New Year Resolutions May was a flop. I don't think I did any of them. Nothing cleaned, nothing sewn, didn't touch the Gazelle, I did cook a few times though. June is a new start. As for Christmas, I still need to finish Allison's quilt from last Christmas. I have started my mom's gift. I have been trying to come up with something cool to make for our friends gifts this year. I am open to suggestions.

Work has been busy. I actually got this weekend off. I really didn't do anything exciting though. I did make Poop a few new hair clips. I bought her clips with black feathers on them last Christmas time, this week she ate them. So I made her a new pair. I also made her a 4th of July pair. I also fixed 2 scrapbook layouts that I didn't really like the first time around.

Weight Watchers is going well. I am down 15.4 lbs. I rarely get to go to meetings anymore but I have a great group of friends that are also doing it and we e-mail each other support often. I don't think I will hit the 20 lbs mark before I go to Texas on the 20th but I should hit my 10% mark. I know Texas isn't going to be Weight Watcher friendly.

May 31st marked the first day to pick up the instructions for the R Lily Stem Quilt shops mystery quilt. I of course was down on the first day. This year's quilt if called Guilty As Charged. This is the fifth year I am doing this. I have even finished two of the quilt tops. Mine is red, green and white from the Holly Go-Lightly line. I had to order one of the fabrics from New York and it should be here soon. The first step is always the easiest, I did it today in a half hour. I also went with my mom today to get her instruction and pick out the rest of her fabric. Her's is cream, mauve, and a print with poinsettia's and pine cones. Can't wait for step 2 on June 30th.

Poop is doing okay. We went to the ENT on Thursday. She now has a double ear infection and they are scheduling her appointment to get tubes. We are waiting to find out if they will do it in Stockton (because of insurance) otherwise we will have to go to another ENT and start over. Friday she had her 15 month check up. She is 31 inches tall and 22 lbs and 11oz. She is now in the 50% for weight. Her verbal skills are advanced since she knows more than 3 words. She currently has 6 teeth trying to come in, which is part of the reason for ear infections. Also Dr B was impressed with the way she kept trying to help him use the computer and she sat on the floor to read her new book.

Scott is still in San Ramon. We are just waiting to hear if he is going to Merced or when he will take over the job their. He is also waiting on breaking ground on the houses in West Sacramento. The plans are at the city and waiting for the list of changes. Their is also the possibility of a dental remodel in San Francisco. If that happens I hope he doesn't get the job in Merced. Believe it or not the Blazer is still running well, 310,000 miles later.
