Pray for no rain

Today has been lovely so far so let's pray that it is this way tomorrow since we are driving East. I am doing a load of laundry then will get something together to take with us to share, dig the cooler out and then it is just rise and shine in the AM and head out.

I have to admit I am a bit nervous about leaving my dd here alone but she is an adult and well we have done all along it is time to add another feather to her wings so she can fly gracefully :)

see you all later - hope to have some pics to share when I return.

What happened to yesterday?

Tuesday is my night by myself to do what I want usually. dh golfs and dd has band practice. So I normally play my computer game or read. I did play my game last night and then I did read too LOL! SO I managed to do both favorites in one night. I just read a really cool mystery called Naked Came the Phoenix which is a book written by many authors. This isn't the first of this type I have read but I did enjoy this one quite a bit more than any others. You ought to check it out if you enoy mysteries and aren't snobbishly stuck on one author's writing style
Today is a bid due date for me at work so I am patiently waiting for my boss to give me the final numbers and then I will be taking off to the bid meeting to see what happens. We really need to win one of these as we keep working them up and turning them in but not winning. The market is so competative right now it is cut throat!
see you later :)

Took dh and dd and her bf to the Carousel today. We saw Damn Yankees. Wasn't really thrilled with it - as on I wouldn't go see it again but I had a nice time and always enjoy the trips there. They are having a great show coming up Viaggio which is a Circ show I believe. I would love to go to that. I told dd she could buy me that for my bday present even the cheaper test run night would be fine for me LOL! We'll see if she does or not. I know it is kinda expensive :( Too bad adding the long drive on makes it almost out of reach anymore with gas added on.

The storms today on the way down were horrible, I was white knuckling the door handle arm rest thingy! I was glad dh was driving and NOT me! They were saying tornado's and here we are riding right into it! Glad we arrived safe and sound and dh being in a chivalrous mood even dropped us off under the overhang and then parked and walked back in the rain. When I am at my last nerve he goes and does something like that which then reminds me why I like the man LOL! I think life gets to overwhelming sometimes and it is good to get away and relax and hopefully let go of some of the things that are building up and bothering you.

ok so I am tired now so off to read a bit before bed....

Last night I came home expecting a pretty quiet night and just hanging out in SL or maybe watching a movie. Well the whole lot next door to me a field down the road and across the street and then my own front lot were filling up with cars. I couldn't figure out what the heck was going on so I of course ask DD she knows everything LOL! She tells me there is a hot air balloon thing going on. So we see this guy blocking off a section so people don't park and we yell down to him (it was kinda funny he could hear us but didn't know where the voices were coming from - poor man was looking around thinking the air was talking!) Anyway he tells us about it and I think cool that will be fun to watch out the window. So I do and I got several good pics which I am sharing a few with you. The rest are uploaded to my MySpace photo's section. The pictures were literally taken with the screen up in my window and me looking out and in some cases leaning out beyond the window ledge to get a clearer view but I did not walk over there it was tooooooooooo crowded!


the first one off the ground :)

out the front window of the house when I figured out where they were headed :)

Ambulance and fire crews were on standby during the entire thing. I zoomed this (obviously) but look at how cool the balloon looks while it is filling.

They flew over in a V pattern and beyond those trees way in the distance is a small airport which is were I am assuming htey landed. They they deflated and trucked themselves back over here and reinflated for the night when they did a cool light up thing - but no good pics of that :( It was like sparking fireflies everywhere and you could hear the fire on and off - it was really cool!

this was my favorite one out of the ones that were here. I liked the moon and shooting stars! It looked awesome at night lit up too!

blah blah blah

I am looking for ways to make money to help with our income or lack there of at home lately. The economy is tanking regardless of what they say in the media I am living it, no one wanting to spend money on fixing their cars because they can't afford the gas to drive them anyway less work is available for my dh which is making it hard to just make the ends meet let alone have anything extra. I worry about where it will come from what to cut back on, is there anything else we can cut back on and how to get everyone in the family to cooperate with spending limits.
I thought this summer would be a new beginning of life for me and so far it has not been new but rather as if I have stumbled into a horror house or something of that sorts. Never know what might be around the next curve to "get" me. I can't even prevent it I am on the ride and can't stand up or stop it to get off. UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
yeah so today's ramble is that life pretty much sucks right now
