Where does the time go?

I can't believe that it has been 10 days since I had time to blog or go blog walking, where did the time go? I could say that time flies when you're having fun but I don't really recall having a whole lot of fun lately...


Work is overwhelming at the moment which given the current economy, is a good thing for me, right? Got caught up on a bunch of stuff yesterday since we had a snow day. Well a snow day for Texas is more like an ice day and pretty sure that nowhere else in America stops for such things, but we are Texans and we don't actually know what to do with such stuff. I enjoyed HALF of my snow day until the Big Guy called and really needed me to do some things at the office...


Nothing much else is happening, that I can recall at least. C1 had the grand opening and ribbon cutting at his gym last week. I was a very proud mama at that event. C2 still struggles with some issues but has been released for 'light duty' and against my deepest wishes, has returned to working for his father giving up the opportunity and the golden ticket of a college education. C3 keeps growing and is probably the tallest member of the family - weird. He has begun working out in anticipation of football season foregoing basketball and track this year and he has 'guns.' For those of you not surrounded on a daily basis with the male species, these are muscular arms...


I've been shopping like a mad dog looking for stupid 'formal' attire for the stupid cruise that I am being forced to go on for seven days in a couple of weeks. Doesn't being forced to spend 7 days and 7 nights stuck on a ship with your fellow employees and agents sound like a good time? NOT. I am dreading this on multiple levels. I will say that I have found some really great deals and some really cool shoes. Here is my favorite pair...


That, my friends, is all I've got...

I haven't had a whole lot to say either -

I want to know what you are going to wear with those shoes? What colors? Or just one specific oufit?

I'm distracted by the pink insides of those shoes. I need a picture of them on your foot for proper analysis.

When does football season start?? Like August? Wow, that's dedication right there.

I do not think you could pay me enough money to spend 7 days and 7 nights with my coworkers. Someone would go overboard and I'd be on the news telling the story.

Going on a cruise in and of itself sounds marvy right now....but with co-workers?? Not so marvy. Cruise ships are so big. Can you plead that you got "lost" and just disappear for a week?? Just a thought.

So glad to hear that C1's gym is open and running. I don't blame you for being a little distressed at C2's choice. And what can I say about C3....he sounds like a dream kid!!

Hugs to you, my friend!

I'm sorry you're not looking forward to the cruise. Maybe it will turn out to be better than you're expecting? It often happens that way. And at least you have cute shoes.

Love those shoes!! Maybe you can get lost on the cruise.. if the boat's big enough!LOL I've been struggling to post lately, too.. especially now that my dad's sick. Hope you survive the cruise, and even have fun.. I know you'll look good in those shoes! We need a picture of the outfit..
Kids just don't always do what we think they should, do they? Congrats to C1...
hugs,
Jean

Gotta admit, those are great shoes.
You'll enjoy your cruise. Just focus on the fun. Oh, and the food. And the booze. But don't drink too much cuz you can't afford to be losing your job in this economy.
Have fun. K?

God you are such a Diva, I love your shoes , I would also like to see what you are going to wear with them!! Cruise huh? I hear those ships are so big you can loose people??? Glad all of you are doing well. Take care and have a great weekend. Hugs, Pat
