Ryan will be in Cville , so all three of my guys will be in town. YIPPEE!!!!!
I saw this on a blog... tuesday update, go see hers....
My Sister and I interview 2 prople to help her at Smacks. One was dumber than a box of rocks and the other was sharp as a doorknob. So, we were at TJ MAXX, a fav store and there was this guy running the cash register. Well, I am not shy, so I asked him if he knew of anyone that needed a part time job. Well I'll be, He does. Now lets think, he CAN run a cash register and he could carry on a conversation with the public (ie Moi). We told him to come in today and he came right in at 11:00. I will train him tomorrow and he will be great. He's in his early 20's and seem fun too. So I will say tootle loo to SMACKS tomorrow night. I get to go home!
School starts in 2 weeks. I always have 100's of things to do and make for my classroom. I come up with ideas and set right out to do them! My LH volunteered ( with guidance from me), to help me clean and get things arranged, then I can go up during the day to get things ready. I always want my duck in a row the few days before. Think retirement in June '09!!!!!!
Not much other exciting news here. I went to a few flea markets yesterday morning, I was not impressed too much. I got a bit of fabric and some linens. I LOVE, love old linens. I am also on the crazy roll to make or buy aprons... I only wear them when I fry chicken of cook at school!

I remembered to pack my cord to attach to the PC, but forgot the camera!! go figure, so no pics of Branson. Like you were waiting on the edge of your seat for those. hahaha
Last night, my Sister and I wanted to talk to my nephew on myspace. We are not real literate on that subject, so we signed up as Dr. Penelope Peddlepusher. I thought that was a cute name. My profession was ER Doc., haha Anyway we made up a whole bunch of stuff, and began to send invites to my nephew and my youngest. So, we got this message from what we thought was a crazy person. Bring the scardy cats we are, we decided that we didn't want my "real" email on myspace, so we cancelled the whole thing. Now, we talk to my youngest and he tells me that "Tom" is the "owner" of myspace and sends this message to everyone, Well, we will not be going there anymore anyway... lesson learned... make a new email site for myspace I guess, or don't be so chicken.

We went up, up and away early one morning. The balloon was fantastic. We left early at 6:30 and flew around the valley. The scenery was just beautiful. We were to land in a meadow at the Snake River Ranch, the balloon went a bit too far and we landed in a meadow owned by Rockefeller, needless to say the ballooning company got us out of the area very quickly. it seems the Rockefeller's don't care for early morning visits.
I took some beautiful pictures of the scenery. My favorite place was the stream, Aspen trees, and beautiful grassy areas. I could just sit there all day and read a book, have a picnic and take a nap, of course my LH can come too.
The best part of the trip according to LH was the Snake River "white water" raft trip. As soon as I figure out how to do a link, I can show the pictures of the raft trip. I took our pics with a water proof camera. So, I will get those on soon. One evening we went to Jackson Hole Playhouse. We had a delicious dinner, then enjoyed "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers". It was fantastic! What a great time we had that evening.
So that about it, we could not have asked for anything better during the trip. The flight home was late, but we got home by midnight on Sunday night! I slept in, LH went to work refreshed and relaxed at least for now.
What a beautiful place, Jackson Hole! If you have not been to the mountains, they are a wonder to behold.
So, as luck would have it, the guy that my Sister thought was an angel from God, didn't work out for SMACKS, Sooooooooooooo, yep your right, I am leaving in tomorrow to go help for 1 more week. I will then be home for good. School starts in 3 weeks and I have a wedding scheduled for every weekend in August. I think I will enjoy the position of Wedding Coor., for Boston Ave, more on that later.

My nephew, JS had passed his "journeymans" test. Yippee!!!! We are all so proud of him. I guess this means he is now able to join the "union". He lives in OKC with his dog...hot pepper or chili pepper. I can never remember that dog's name. Its a cute little thing!!!
His sister,my neice, cutie patootie K lives in Texas with her Cowboy-man N. They are the cutest little couple. Cowboy-man has a new horse named Tuscany, and a couple of dogs. Oh, he also bought a motorcycle... I just don't like those things. Its like riding on a rocket. He best be puttin on that helmet and flying outside the cockpit.
She was unloading "stuff" at the Deli on Fri. A lady walked by and said to her "that looks like a heavy load", my sister responded with, "Yes, it is, I really need some help around here." They visited a few seconds. As she was leaving, my Sister mentioned in passing,"If you know anyone send them in." She went on in and thought nothing more about the conversation. The next day, a man in his late 60's came in and announced to her that he was understood she needed help. The lady had been a previous owner,that just happen to be walking by the Deli at the exact time my sister was unloading...before most stores we even open... He worked for the woman many, many years ago at the Deli. AND.... HE KNOWS HOW TO MAKE THE BREAD!! Oh my gosh.... are you getting chill bumps? Anyway, the short part of the story is he can make bread, work the front and he will be there whenever she needs help. SO, I may not need to go back, yippee! (I love my sister dearly, but would love to stay home.) She told him that they were still trying to sell. He said, "thats OK, if I can help the new owners OK, if not I'll move on!!! What are the odds, that this lady walked by at that minute AND that she told the man help was needed. He is retired and this will be great for a bit of extra money. GOD IS GOOD!
OK, don't you love "feel good" stories.
Here is another funny story. I just love weddings, the planning part and seeing things fall together for the ceremony. Its such a happy time. When my niece married, the Church's wedding planner in OKC, was mean and hateful. She really made things difficult. Oh yea, they threw away the cake after the reception without even asking... She told us she didn't see that we brought zippy bags and assumed we didnt want the left over cake, true story!!! Ok, where was I?? Anyway, I saw in the Church newpaper that a wedding planner assistant was needed. So after a few months of pondering, I called. Well, long story short... the current planner wants to be the assistant and so I am going to be the Church Wedding Planner! How fun, I can't wait. I have always wanted to be an event planner. My best friend has a catering business, so Im am thinking how fun is retirement going to be in a couple of years... May 09 to be exact!!!!!! yippee.
So, I'm packing up LH and I today and we are flying out for a vacation! yehaw!
We go to the beach for me in the spring, and the mountains for him in the summer. So, I will be on blog vacation!
See ya later

I went to the DR for my "well woman" exam. Enough said about that. I had to update my file and there was a space for age. I felt strange writing 49+1, so I did it, I wrote 50!!! Thats a big step for me. Anyway, oh yea, I had a bone density test. Im in the 50%, so as a preventative measure I am adding Fosamax to my RX list. That test was really easy. Just lay there. I also need to start taking Calcium and Vitamin D. But, I'm in good health, so quit whinninggggggggggg.
Not much other news around the ole house. Rain, rain, rain. We were to go to a Drillers game, but I dont want to run to the car in the rain, so we will just go out for mexican food. Good, I can be in my jammies by 7:30. lazy!
Tomorrow morning I am having a breakfast meeting in Tulsa, so I think I will check out some estate sales. I just love them. Especially when there are linens.
Have a good night...

Plano, but never fear there is one in Branson, hahaha. A funny story... My DL-(daughter in law) and I were talking about the store one night. Her dad- (CY) thought we said "Dressin Naughty", I guess that concerned him that it was my fav store andI took my DL. So, we set CY straight really quick. I'm a bit fru fru, but not naughty!!! Its been a hilarious story for DL and I.

Ok... I brought a ton of yellow gingham home from my sister's house. We all know she won't be using it. Anyway, I decided to make some new curtains for my kitchen. I also took off the kitchen cabinets under the sink. I'm not sure if I like the color??? What do you think? Maybe a green toile???? I don't know, but it kept me busy this afternoon while LH was doing some yard things. We plan to gut the kitchen in the fall or spring and re-do everything. So, Ill probably live with it a couple of days and when we get back from Ryan's bday, I'll ponder it some more. I used some old spoons I found at a flea market to use as a tieback. I just bent them and stuck them on the wall.
We had planned to go to watch the fireworks in Tulsa, but watched a movie instead. I heard the thunder about 9:45, so it may have gotten rained out. Go figure, it has rained nearly everyday!!!!
We are going to Jackson Hole in a few weeks and LH wants to take a hot air balloon ride. I will call tomorrow and see about it. I did find a small tour company based in Jackson that takes you into Yellowstone NP. We spent 3-4 days when the kids were little in the park. We saw every step of Yellowstone. Anyway, where was I... oh yea, he doesnt want to mess with the traffic and I dont want to ride an old greyhound type bus. So I searched until I found a respectable tour company. http://www.callowishus.com/ . Seems reasonable and no driving for LH. That will make him a happy camper and give us a quick overview of the park again. We can tour on our own at Teton's. Its not that big. We also have a Snake River Raft trip planned. We "float" the river in the a.m. and then stop for lunch before the "rapids". Its suppose to be a family type of trip. HAHAHAHA, we will see if I stay in the boat.
I better go, LH is asleep in the recliner and I am going to go read in bed.

I guess I am the entertainment for some family members... sad, huh. No really I don't mind. It seem that has been my role since birth, to entertain the family with my antics. So I best not let them down.
Today will be a girls day out. I am going with Pam to Tulsa to run errands and of course EAT! That is the most important topic of the day. She is a cater and needs to get supplies at our fav store SAMS. Lance works right across the street at http://westmarine.com , so we might pop in a see my little boy. haha he 23!!
This weekend we go to Dallas/Frisco to Ryan's 25 bday!!!!! Gee thats been a long time and YES i do remember those birthing pains. That was not something I will ever forget!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, The house needs a good summer clean and it probably wont happen today, maybe tomorrow, maybe not. But I am considering it. Better get ready to go play. I think I put a roast in the crock pot.... poof, dinner will be ready when LH gets home.

I'm back at home. I had a great time with my sister, but I am glad to be back home. We went to Church this morning and then to eat mexican food for lunch. I took a 2 hour (power nap) this afternoon!
As I was leaving Saturday to go to Branson, my sister and brother in law wondered if I could come back for 2 weeks before school starts??? Of course, I can do that. Whats a sister for. My LH said he doesn't care either way, so we will see if this saga continues. We have a lot planned for this month. Off to Dallas for my oldest son's 25th birthday. Then in a couple of weeks to Jackson Hole! Back home in time to maybe go to Branson, then home to start school. Whee, Im tired just thinking about it.
Off to do my laundry and other fun things...
