books, books, books

I have recently (within the last year) joined a book club.  Way expanded my comfort level - I was stuck in the murder mystery funk.... anyhow - I have enjoyed some great reads!  Thought I would share some of them:

1.  Woman in Red
2.  Good in Bed
3.  Garden Spells
4.  Firefly Lane

and at the moment I am reading "The Shack" which I think will top them all!

It's all about the hair!

No lie - you play better volleyball with your hair done right!  Well, somewhat better v-ball.  We placed 2nd in the tournament.  Got creamed by valley view.  They play great ball (it must've been the hair)!

And this says it all!

You need to go to the above blogspot and watch the video - awesome!!! totally awesome!

It's been a long time!

It's been a while since I have posted.  I have driven almost 500 miles or more this week going to volleyball games/tournaments.  My butt is getting bigger than Texas! I drive, sit and then drive home again!  The Jr.High girls placed 2nd in the tournament.  Only to be beaten (totally and without mercy) once by the Valley View team.  Sr. High... not so great.  

One of the four boys who destroyed the teachers house got 6 months in jail, $10,000 fine, and five years felony probation.  I work at the school where the teacher teaches.  This particular mother told her that she ruined her sons life.  HELLO.... it was your son who destroyed her house.  I am trying to keep this all in reality check as we go to court on Oct. 6th to see what the sentence is  handed down to my son for driving his friend to do a senior prank.  I feel for the boys and their families, but Lord have mercy.... I truly believe my son would not break into anyone's home and destroy one item in it.  But, kids do the stupidest things and sometimes they pay dearly - just like my boy is.............. I am just glad he didn't beat the stew out of a farmer nor did he damage anybody's property.  Gotta look for the silver lining people!

The above mentioned family also is moving............... kinda like us............ wonder if there is any crazy connection there?  hmmm......

She took it well!

My mother took the news of Kyle being charged with a felony and expelled from school, getting his GED and going to college news real well.  She is ecstatic that we are considering moving back home at Christmas.  I have to admit, the longer we are here - the harder it is for me to want to move.  I hate snow......... I hate the cold .......... I hate driving on icy roads........... UGH!!!! I love summer, I love the sun, I love the beach.  If we move - I may never set my toes in sand again (or for a really, really long time).  What to do?  The cosmic question that I send out to the internet world, not really expecting a response......... but I will take any advice I can get!
