My goodness! I hadn't realized it had been so long since my last post. Things with me have been fine. Busy and hectic, but that seems to be the norm these days. I work 7 days a week, golf in two leagues, try to walk daily, and still trying to run a household, but I'm not complaining. I really enjoy it. Things at the golf course are picking up now that the weather has finally gotten nice. Nice is putting it mildly. We went from needing the heater to temps in the 90's this week. I love it!!! I can't believe how many people are complaining. I've been a sun goddess when ever I get the chance.

As for my golf game....well, I've had some good days and some not-so-good days. My partner and I are in 1st place by quite a lead, but keeping it could be another story. I just don't understand how I can be so good one day and hit so well, and go to absolutely terrible, practically over night. Oh well, that's why I'm not making the big bucks! :)

Kids are doing fine (as far as teenagers go). This is their last week of school before summer break begins. They are excited. Aubrey will be hitting the golf course a lot more, Zach will be putting in more hours as work, and Brit continues looking for a new job. She is also still with her boyfriend, but they spend WAY too much time together. A job for her (and him) would be good.

OH! Here's the big news....We have a trip planned to Alaska. We are going the 2nd week of June and going halibut fishing. The kids are actually kind of excited. Our friends from Buffalo are going with us also. It is going to be a blast!! We'll be shipping back a lot of fish, but halibut is the best! I have two cook books of just halibut recipes. We will also go to a glacier park and the Anchorage zoo. I'm really looking forward to it.

Well, I guess that's about it for now. Hope everyone is enjoying life!

Jay Leno pet tricks

I wish I could get this on video or teach my dogs to do this on command but I have yet to catch them at it. My husband thinks I'm crazy, but I KNOW my dogs are doing this. Occasionally I forget to fill the water bucket and my dogs get thirsty. There is a water spigot on the back of the house that I use to fill it. There are times when this spigot is on and water is pooling in the back yard and my husband fusses at the kids for leaving it on. I tried telling him it is the dogs doing this, but he doesn't believe me. The bucket will be pushed aside, laying on it's side, and water is either dripping out or at a full flow. I KNOW one of my dogs has learned how to turn this on when they get thirsty. I'm guessing it's Sophie, my Rhodesian Ridgeback. She is an extremely smart dog. What I'd like to know is if she paws at it or uses her mouth. One of these days I'm going to catch her in the act. Trying to get these two to pose for a picture is next to impossible. This was the best I could do for now.

I haven't been hiding, really I haven't. But this girl went and got herself into trouble. I guess that's what happens when you go unprotected. WAIT MOM! NO, I'm not pregnant. What are you people thinking?! My computer got infected with an awful virus and was acting up something terrible. I hadn't re-installed Norton Anti-Virus from the last episode and this is what happened. I honestly don't think I like Norton. It seems to give me more problems than it's worth. If I can just keep others from going to sites that corrupt my computer I'd be fine. This actually happened a while ago, but with working 2 jobs I haven't had the time or inclination to go through the process of saving everything, reformating my hard drive and then reinstalling everything. Well, I finally got tired of my computer re-booting on me every 15 min and running at a snails pace and doing all other types of funky things....so I finally sat my butt down and got it done the other day. Still don't have everything re-installed, but I'm back on line and I can blog. Is there anything else that matters?

Not a whole lot new going on in my life anyway, so you haven't missed anything. Although my womens league golf season has started and I shot my best score since I started playing again a few years ago. I really shouldn't brag about a 42, (9 holes) but I was pretty proud of myself. It really should have been a 39. 3 of my shots were duffs that hardly rolled 3 feet. Plus one hole I three putted, and there's no excuse for that. But all in all I'm tickled. Now the season is early so I have to improve from that. The pressure is on!

I'm really sorry about being gone for so long. I have really missed ya'll! I'll be around to your sites soon!
