Life Moves On

Wow, it's been an eventful week. The summer is coming to a close and I would like to tell you what the girls have been up to.

Ashley has joined ROTC.
She did a week of orientation and she is loving it. Today Ashley is volunteering with her unit at an Italian Festival at the Convention Center. She may have just found her niche. I really hope she does well, because this could mean so much to her future.

Taylor, like always, is the All Star. Just this week, she has received congratulatory letters from Alexis Tibbetts, our Superintendent of Schools
And our State Senator Don Gaetz, who is our previous Superintendent of Schools.
In recognition for her being one of the top mathematic FCAT scores in the state. her score was almost perfect.
I am so proud of both of their achievements. They are such great kids, and they teach me so much.

These past few weeks haven't been easy for them either, but somehow they remain so positive and keep their smiles firmly on their faces.

ROCK ON LADIES! You are the best there are!

If I could catch a rainbow I would do it just for you

And share with you it's beauty on the days you're feeling blue

If I could build a mountain you could call your very own

A place to find serenity A place to be alone...........

If I could take your troubles I would toss them in the sea

But all these things I'm finding are impossible for me

I cannot build a mountain or catch a rainbow fair

But let me be what I know best A friend that's always there.

Given to me by my friend Gill.

You all have been so sweet, checking on me and those Hippo Hugs were the best!

It's not ok yet, but with friends like you, who try so hard to make me smile..........How long can I be blue!

I love each and every one of you.

New things good and bad

Meet Loki. He's kind of cool, huh?

He was a gift, to "ward off evil". Kind of reminds me of the stone thing in "Night At The Museum" that says

"Me not Dum Dum, You Dum Dum, Me want Gum Gum"

I haven't posted lately, because life has been just too hard, and there are too many things to say and not say. Allen and I broke up after 5 years. So Loki is my new man and he's keeping my front door safe.

I will try to be better about posting. Theres a lot of thoughts in my mind that need to find a way out, but I need to put them in order first.
