It's a little irritating, but on the other hand, I got the watch the recital on stage, instead of through the viewfinder. Of course, now I have to buy a $25 DVD.

More work to do on the Camaro this week. I swear, I thought we'd be driving by now. With unlimited funds, we probably would have been. As it is, it'll probably be well in the summer before it's ready for the street. Oh, well. We're having a good time working together on it.

I hope y'all have a great day!
That's what matters most.

It will be a busy week for us. My mom is getting ready for surgery Wednesday and is very nervous. I am no help because I am nervous too! She is such a highly active person and I hate seeing her not being able to get around much and hurting but after this surgery and healing she will be back to her old self. I cannot wait to move forward with it all!

I really appreciate everyone's concern, thoughts and prayers for her!!!

Good news, I got a raise at work. Completely unexpected! Every time I get one it's unexpected. They told me I am doing a great job and they love having me there. 10 years there and I still love that place!!!

Then at work we had a funny incident. I was waiting on this man who was buying a rooster from us. We usually go get the rooster out of the cage, put it in a box then bring it to the counter. Instead, this man brought the rooster to the counter and was waiting on us bringing a box. We had a lot of customers around and when I brought the box the rooster flipped out making a lot of noise then hopped all over the counter jumping on people and knocking stuff all over the place. That poor little guy was scared but it seems that everyone was entertained by the mess he made. He broke a lid on a jar of local honey so I got a discount on it and bought it! =)

I felt bad for the rooster but we are suppose to get them and put them in a box to prevent that, not have the customer bring them to us but it all worked out! In the end the rooster has a new home!

Have a great day everyone!
She is continuing to be in my thoughts.

Congrats on the raise!!!

Poor rooster!

Plus she took the SAT on Saturday. Those shifts might be alright over the summer but its a lot for her now since she still has school and homework! Anyway my oldest thinks she is getting pink eye so I am bringing the both of them to the doctor later this afternoon. Its always something! I am going to bake cookies now. I feel like baking.
Hope everyone is having a great day!
I will keep them in my thoughts.

We only live a couple blocks from the school, and in Bellville that means about 100 yards away.

I don't mind them walking, but Nancy insists on someone picking them up.

I predict a Rumble in the Bronx when I get home.
