Wow! We are two days into our summer vacation and I feel completely lazy. However, I was able to get motivated and do some house work to check off on the "TO DO LIST". I cleaned out the entire file cabinet in our office and ended up with two garbage bags of shredded stuff. Guess that project was long overdue. I also did A LOT of laundry and cooked a killer dinner (beer can chicken, mac n' cheese, and sweet tea!

I am however, missing my girl. Mom and Dad couldn't wait to see her (they just saw her 6 weeks ago), so Dad met us in McDonough yesterday to pick her up. We are going the week of the 8th, but I guess grandparents lack patience to wait. So, she is hanging out there able to swim at her leisure so that makes her REALLY happy.

Hopefully in the next week we will be able to get her room and her bathroom painted. I want to surprise her with a whole new bedroom when she gets home, so here's to hoping it gets done. I can't wait to get to Florida. Lots of friends to catch up with and Good Times to be had!!!!!

And......the yard guy came today.......and we found out that his brother does basements!!!!! Yay!!! So looks like we will be getting some estimates on finishing our basement. I wanted this done by the time Amber reached high school so we have a year! I'm so excited, and Fred is too. I think he is thinking this will be his new bachelor pad (LOL). Whatever works, huh!

Happy Evening!

Just Beginning

Wow! I have finally started a family blog. I've wanted to do this for a while, but just haven't taken the time. We finally fixed the computer so everything is up and running! Fred and I finish our school year tomorrow! I am so looking forward to summer spending time with Amber and our families in Florida. Right now, we plan on going to Epcot and then to Tampa to visit Jaime, Luke and the kids! I haven't seen them since our wedding and am SO EXCITED to see them. I hope to get to Tallahasse to see Christie, Andy, and kids! Fun filled summer ahead!

I spent this weekend laughing with Adrienne who came to visit. We met Dytra for breakfast the morning and had a great conversation and laughed about old times at Lincoln and Buchholz!

Amber has some friends over tonight, so she's having a blast. I think they just had a dance contest, not real sure, just heard music and a lot of noise! Fred and I pretty much let them do as they wish, until it's a "strange" noise! LOL

I have some "to do's" for the summer, so I'm really looking forward to this time off work to get them done (i.e. painting some rooms in the house, scrapbooking, new blinds). I guess come August, we'll evaluate what all got done.

I'm signing off for now....Happy Evening!
