It has come to this..

compression socks! usually reserved for the elderly and heart patient But, oh no, I need them for lower leg water retention!! trust me, my legs have gotten better, a little weight loss is helping, reduced intake of sodium, and tennis has helped, but still not completly fluid free and a puffy ankle is not very cute, so as I pondered the aisles of publix yesterday, I spotted these bad boys and decided to give them a try! Those damn things are tight, but I must say, thy really do work! I have ankles like a Princess today!! LOL!

So proud ...

of this girl.. 3 years Honor roll in middle school and just became a middle school scholar! Off to HS next year and already enrolled for college credit classes! WOW! And to think, she did it all by herself, we did not help her one time or ask her to do her homework. Totally self motivated and driven! Her Dad and I couldn't be prouder! Now the little one.. we just hope to get her out of Elementary school!

Too Funny!!

After the said Teacher graded the picture she sent it home, much to the shock of the momma! The momma clearly explained that she was NOT a POLE DANCER, but a sales woman at Home Depot and just recently after a major snowstorm, told her daughter how much money they made selling shovels!!! It is her with a shovel.. I think it is funny and as a former K5 teacher even funnier!

A Gentleman Prevails...

now we need to work on the hairdo!!!

Happy Easter!!

I love Easter... new beginnings, flowers blooming, street noise,ie children outside! The Easter Bunny brings candy and some toys for the 7 year old... clothes and goodies for the older girls and pure joy to my husband and myself, just watching them enjoy the day.

We have all been reeling from this Pollen we have here in the south, but are so thankful for warm sunny days

We leave tomorrow for our Spring Break trip, we are going camping (CABIN) to a SC State park and we are all so so excited. Today we venture to my MIL's for a family cookout.. all of my husbands siblings, he is one of 12!, will be there and their children and we just love to get together, my MIL is 84 and so spry! I guess she had no choice with 12 children.

I hope you all are blessed, happy and full of new beginnings! Happy Spring!
