Finally finding time to stop in and catch up…. computer time has been even more severely compromised this week as both my laptop and Tara’s need to go in for repair, so we are down to the desktop computer. We also seem to be so busy, feels like we are never home to just sit and relax. I can’t however really figure out what the heck we are doing! With my two jobs I am working 40ish hours a week, the past two have been nice, although I work all weekend, I have had three midweek days off in a row.
Last Thursday I took Tara and all three great nephews to see Avatar – The Last Airbender. They all really liked it. I didn’t have much of a clue what I was watching, but some of the CGI was pretty cool.
Tara has made some new friends, Sidney and Julia. Three girls that get along ALL the time, from my experience that is rare. I love both of these girls! I am really happy for Tara. They had a sleep over here Wednesday night with all three, and last night just Sidney. I feel like have have gained two children (I mean that as a good thing!). Last summer it was Tara and the boys (my great nephews), it feels strange having girls around! I will be watching the boys on Tuesdays this summer too.
I celebrated the 4th by working and then my niece’s family, Tara and I went to see fireworks. The traffic getting to and from them was a nightmare, but they were good.
It was also my mother’s 86th birthday. We did not celebrate much on the 4th, but on Monday my sister, brother in law, Tara, mom and I went to Jim’s (Chinese) Buffet. It is one of their favorite spots to eat, and Tara loves it now too. SO MANY CHOICES. (This carrot cake was good, but TOO dry).
The weather had been AWFULLY hot here this week… worse than Florida hot. We have been taking advantage of the pool. I don’t know why we never used it last year. During the week, even with the kids out of school it really is not that crowded. I love it there in the late afternoon/evening.
Big Brother started last night. I love Big Brother season. Tara had her friends over to watch it too… neither of them had ever seen it before.
Today I start back to work after my three days off from Walgreens, but first we have a few errands to run. I am praying for RAIN!

I have not joined in for GMYBS lately, but I really do love this photo I took yesterday. I don’t always take my camera to the pool when we go, but yesterday morning I missed a great photo op that my IPhone just would not capture, so yesterday afternoon I took my Canon along with me. This little guy came for a visit.
