Its just me today.

Its just me today. Today is all about me. I need some "me" time. I've been stressed for no particular reason and feel that its about time for me to take a break. Of course, that break is me going to work but hey, I do work alone which is nice.

I'm trying really hard to be even keeled and to not overreact to things like Janessa not listening to me when I tell her its too cold to wear flip flops to school and don't wear them until I say you can. (yes, it is 45 today and she was wearing flip flops to school....that kid can be dense sometimes).

I saw Shelly's cupboard, looks nice girlie! I love it when the pantry is looking all organized and clean. I might have to do that soon again.

OH, isn't he sweet.

My husband, the wonderful man he is! Last night he went to a friends house to drop off a boat that we were keeping for him and on his way home he stopped at Atlanta Bread Company to get some bagels. OH gooooodddnnneessss they were good. Nevermind that I am trying to lose weight....these babies tasted soooooo good. I'll have to contain myself from eating more than one but man, I do love that man!!!

My little Sister

Okay, I can't call her my "little sister" really, cause she's not little anymore. Well, she IS little physically but that's because she works out like a mad dog! That lady is in awesome shape. Gets that from Mom. Anyway, why am I writing about her? Well, I just want to say how beautiful she is and how wonderful she is.

This is the girl who was a popular cheerleader in High School but didn't go the stuck up snob ways of the "normal" cheerleaders. She dated the basketball star even though he was two years younger than her (and they are still together today) and married her "high school" sweetheart. She's smart, beautiful, sweet, funny, a blast to be around and I miss her terribly. I wish she lived closer.

She has two beautiful daughters who have their Aunt Jesse's heart in their hands. Her husband is one of the nicest and smartest men I have ever met. They are just an all around beautiful family.

But why am I writing about her? Because I love her and miss her and want anyone who reads this to know just how special she is to me. I left her when she was 14 to join the Navy. It was the hardest thing I have ever done. We did everything together. I took her to the movies, took her to eat when I had time off. Joining the military took me away from her and I regret that I had to do that. But that put me where I am today and for that I am thankful. I still have the world's greatest sis. And there is no one on earth who can say that I don't!!!
