Good morning everyone! We are inching into mid June the summer is rolling right along. I just bought my live internet feeds for Big Brother 15 which starts June 26th. I wait all year for that to start,It one of just a handful of reality shows I like to watch,I don't know how much I will be able to watch but I figure if I am up at night with the boys I can get online and watch to ssee what is happening inside the Big Brother house. Brandi likes to watch Survivor and I try to get into that but I always am too tired out from BB at the end of the summer. I am going to try to get into all of the reality shows that come on in the fall this year.Anyhow not much more going on here today,so I better get started I hope everyone has a great day!

Good Tuesday morning, my Christmas friends!

Yesterday afternoon I had to rush out from work and try to get some work done on my part-time business before the rain came...but I didn't make it. So, I worked in the rain and thunder & lightning. As soon as I finished, the clouds parted, the sky cleared and the birds started chirping. I ain't doing something right!

This evening is the first day of Vacation Bible School at church, and I'm the photographer, once again.

I hope to go out to see Star Trek at least once more before it leaves theaters. Then the Superman movie comes out. I'm looking forward to that, too.

I hope y'all have a great day!

I will definately check it out. I saw it's not available on Netflix for streaming, but it is available on Megashare!
The weekend was great. Girls night was fun, beer tasting was interesting! We were able to try 5 beers (between 3 girls) & we only really didn't like 1 of them - at all! It was a "nut brown" or something like that. Blah! We ordered a basket of munchies instead of pizza & then had a bonfire. We rode our bicycles to the beer tasting. It was a great night!

My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
My neighbor (who is one of the 3 guys in the picture) has already asked me to order 10 copies + another one in 8 x 10! Just so eerie how a person go from laughing with friends 1 minute to gone the next! We really just never know!

I tried to post more last night. I didn't want to end my post with the horrible story about the guy who had a heart attack, but it wouldn't let me post anything else. It kept saying "page not available' - hopefully this message will post ok!!

We have another week of final exams and then there will be my daughters prom and high school graduation. We are excited and looking forward to it all, it's a good kind of busy!
I have decided to not accept the job offer at the doctors office. The job was only supposed to be a few hours in the morning, two days a week. I was already asked if I would be able to be more flexible and work afternoon/evening shifts and fill in for people when needed. Maybe someday I will be able to do something like that but I'm not ready yet. It's no wonder my username is HomemakinGirl. But I am happy I tried it, now I know.
Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well!

Like you said, & everyone has agreed - at least you tried & now you know!! Enjoy all your upcoming parties!

Good Morning MMC!!!! It's going to be hot here in Central Indy with a high in the middle 80's. I got my laundry done, kitchen scrubbed, and sweeper ran yesterday. So today it's time to hit the bathroom and then I'll be done with cleaning for the week. I also want to spend some time doing some work on the computer. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
