Lots of Stuff going on the last few weeks.....

Lots have been happening the last few weeks. We have been busy. Last weekend was my first weekend in four weeks I have had off.  The whole WEEKEND!!! WOW!! Yes I enjoyed every minute of it. I spent time with the girls on Friday and then Saturday we went to our local  Amusement park that opened for the season on Weekends till May 31st. Then they are open all the time. We went Mini Golfing before we came home on Saturday. Kora beat us all.  It was a blast. I miss having family time like that and yes there are many pictures to come. Just trying to figure out which ones to  post. Brianna went up on the Ferris Wheel all by her self.  She went up with daddy the first time but then she wanted to do it again and she wanted to try by herself. So we said here are your tickets since the ride takes two tickets and let her go.  My babies are growing up way to fast.

Then on Sunday we got up and I  made breakfast and we went for a medium sized hike and saw alot of turtles.  boy were they out sunning themselves. We went to Barkhausen. I will have to look the link up for you there if you are interested in looking.  We are looking at having my graduation party out there. on September 28th.

I am almost done with school. I have one more quarter after this one. I am nervous. The school is also adding a mandatory class that we all have to take. its an advanced course to one of the first classes we took. We are trying to petition that we dont have to take it but it looks like we are going to have to take it anyway. but anyway i am fustrated with school in a way. one of my classes is online this quarter and the teacher isnt being very helpful. he keeps telling us to call the support hotline.  Then he has the audacity to tell us that we can write a 1200-1500 word document from the videos on the lab that we have to do but we cant access the labs??!! I don't get it.that is all that is getting to me this quarter. I have a few teachers that are vouching for me. I am working on an internship.  Just hoping they call back soon or Monday they are going to get another call from me.

I graduate Thursday, September 26, at about 7 PM. Anyone interested in coming just let me know. I know some of you live far away and its impossible but the graduation is September 26 but my party is Saturday September 28th.  Havent decided what exactly we are doing with it. I have a friend working on some cakes for me.  i wish i could have her do more sophisticated cakes but all she knows how to do is round cakes. I have found some shaped cake pans I would love to use but she doesnt know how to do them.  and I am not a cake decorator.

Jeff is working on something for himself too. he went on a field trip with his electronics class this last Tuesday and found a possible out of Pomp's Tire.  I will tell you all about it if something comes to light on the subject. the girls are both taking riding lessons now.  I do not have pix of there last lesson because my hubby for got my my camera at home.

Also talked to my doctor last Friday and she said if i can lose another 20-30 pounds and keep my blood sugars at about 100-130 we can take me off my meds in November when I have go back and see her. If for some reason they wont keep stable by then she might have to put me on another med. So I am trying my best on dieting and keeping away from anything I shouldnt be taking in like alot of soda, candy, and such.

Ok off to do some photo's for here and then I am going to go spend sometime with my family. Miss you guys terribly. N..
kora is old enough and tall enough to drive with brianna now.

  1. Good Luck with all your School Stuff! September will be here before you know it. Looks like you all had a great time! Love those turtles sunning themselves!

  2. Thankyou for calling on my blog today, will reply soon.

    However, today is our first day of winter; being we are on the backside of mother earth, hardly a pleasant day - chilly and raining( like UK in summer) temp midday 21C with warm winds coming from the north (The Equator)

    Am expecting our passports to be sent to us , having been renewed British and Australian as We that is the Mrs Rosemary and I are popping over to Merry England in July Hopefully and staying with various relatives to save a buck on accommodation. The Brit passport gives us access to all medical and we still draw pensions from U/K and my navy pension and a Aussie pension too( all paid in pensions)and a bit of super which pays for our jaunts. But it will be our final as we are now coming up to 78 and me 87 and our 60Th wedding anniversary on June 20. Also have to do my drivers test again (Every two Years) and lots of other things to organize. Hope you and your family stay well. Bye for now. love to the kids.
