We told her we were all just going out to eat for her birthday, but he brought her out to the masonic lodge where the party was setup, and she started crying. LOL

We finished up around 11pm, and I was beat from jousting with the huge charcoal grill. I cooked 120 hamburgers and 140 hotdogs. Whew! But it was a blast.

I spend most of the day yesterday cleaning up the lodge and returning everything we had borrowed for the party. It was fun, but now I'm glad it's behind us.

This week, we have Vacation Bible School, so I have to get back to work.

I hope y'all have a great day!

How is everyone doing? I downloaded a Halloween countdown app yesterday and it got me excited! I always start the Christmas season November 1. I know we have a long summer to get through, but the fall will be here before we know it!
Speaking of a long summer...highs may hit 100 this week here in Oklahoma! They will at least be high 90s.

Have a good Monday!

Good luck with the job search! And I know how you feel about longing for fall! I am full on Autumn mode all of summer...and tech. summer has not even arrived yet!! Just 120 days or so until I drag the Halloween décor out...it's just such an amazing time of year!

But we've had some beautiful times here to remember. And Gloria is determined to master her iPad so she can stay in touch via email. We'll be back home Tuesday evening.
Have a safe trip home and I hope you get back into the swing of things soon! The post vacation blues are hard to get over!

Good Monday everyone! I am on lunch break and just wanted to pop in to say hey! I am trying to stay off internet at least the first day.lol maybe in a few weeks I will come back more often during the work day. Everything is going good though and I really am liking the people I am with. Tonight we are eating chicken and lime tortillas and that sounds great! Have a great day everyone!

If you are ever in the mood for a little road trip, I recommend Maddox Ranch House. Man, their food is great! Homemade rolls, corn bread, and they even make their own root beer! They raise their own beef. They have a turkey steak that is good, too. It's up where I used to live, in Brigham City.

Brigham City isn't too far...thirty or forty minutes north of Hill AFB. Glad you're enjoying your new home!

Heads up for those east of California: Woke up during the night to a LOUD thunderstorm!!! It is a little chilly outside and the sky is overcast. The thunder is the loudest I have ever heard in CA--it even rattled the windows and woke me up. WEIRD weather!!!

We are under thunderstorm watches and even a tornado watch! This rain is INSANE! We got 4 inches on Friday and Lord knows how much today. My back yard floods so badly (high water table + my neighbor's sloping garade + being lower than the back alley = trouble!!) and I've pumped it out TWICE and it's a swamp out there again! Still raining! I give up for the day, ugh!!!

Howdy! Wow! I have been away for 10 days. Way too long but still don't have time to do much on here. Busy, busy, tired, tired! Why, oh why does summer have to be so hard on me? We haven't truly hit the high temps yet and it's already wearing me down. It will be in the mid 90's all week and I am not looking forward to the triple digits. I really try to not let it tire me out but it hasn't worked yet.

The good news.... The heat makes me think of Christmas even more!!! We just watched Snowglobe, Home Alone and now A Christmas Story. I say "watch", it's actually just going while we are busy with other things, just nice to hear it in the background!

I am really missing you all but starting Wednesday I will be even more busy. I will do my best to visit more!

Have a merry day my Christmas friends!

Hope you are all okay. We've been dealing with that sort of thing, too. No fun.
