Summer Time Frame of Mind

It's funny, I had such high hopes for keeping schooling going thru out the summer. From the start Kelly & I have been just like these to rams - butting heads! I should have just taken the time off and started up when the public school starts again but NO I had the grand vision to keep the train rolling in hopes we would get alot done. Instead it has been a battle almost every day. She needed that "summer time" mind set alot more that I thought she did.

I screwed up!

Reading the Newspaper : (

Honestly it must be bad for your health to read the newspaper!
I just glanced at USA Today and read JP Morgan lost 5.8 billion dollars (Didn't tax payers help bail them out in 2008!). Hope Solo says she and some of the other olympians were drunk on the Today show after partying the night before and that the one of the olympians describes the olympic village as a "frat party with a very nice gene pool." It also states that all of the clothes that the olympians will wear for the opening ceremonies were made in China (Are you kidding me)! And DON'T even get me started on the Penn State issue, I can't imagine how any human being would stand by and not bash the sh*t out of that guy if you saw him doing something like that to a young boy!! I don't give a rats ass who he was I would have kicked him in the personals and called the cops - End of Story!! Those men who turned a blind eye to all this need to rot in HELL!
See what I'm saying, the newpaper is harmeful to your health!

"Groundhog Day"

It is spooky but sometimes I think I am stuck in that movie "Groundhog Day", where the guy keeps living the same day over and over.... I do the same thing every single day it it is crazy!
On the school front: It has been moving in reverse. We start something and never seem to finish it : ( An example was we were reading "Adara" a intresting story which did capture our interest right from the start... We never finished it! I had inter-library loaned it and had to give it back before we completed it. So from now on I am not going to inter-library loan any books until we settle down to a more routine pace with the school work. One of the problem is Kelly has been staying up to all hours of the night playing that dam game "World of Warcraft"! Her friends are on till sometimes 4 or 5 in the morning and to top it off my daughter-in-law & son are now addicted to the game too so they all play at the same time. Which of course makes my lovely daughter a dream to work with duing school time... I guess I should have known we would run up against this problem since most of her buddies are off of school and stay up to all hours. But I haven't given up hope yet, I'm just going to streamline our studies for now and see how that goes.
Until Next Time - God Bless!!

Nascar Vacation : )

This past week was my annual Nascar vacation. Twice a year Nascar racing comes down here to Daytona and I am there! My son, daughter-in-law & I went over to the track and saw the Nationwide race on friday night which was awesome! After last year we decided no to go to the Cup race and I am glad we did not it was a snoozer. My daughter-in-law was also nice enough to go with me down to get one of my favorite drivers autograph & photo "Brad Keselowski"! It was real hot that day and we had to stand in line out in the sun, my daughter-in-law was a real trooper. The kind people at the discount tire store where the signing was taking place gave out ice cold bottles of water to all of us who were in line which was a life saver. Had a fun time getting out and enjoying the time away from the house. I can't wait till Feb. for the Daytona 500 for my next get away : )

Happy 23rd Birthday Kristopher!!

On July 1st. my son turned 23 years old! I sat there while he cut his birthday cake wondering where those 23 years have gone! It really seems just like yesterday we strapped him into the car seat and brought him home from the hospital - He scared the life out of us coming into the world 6 weeks early but he now says he just wanted to see the fireworks on the 4th : ) He has always been such a wonderful boy and now has turned into a man I am proud to call my son!
God Bless him and may he have many more happy & healthy Birthdays!!
