1. My favorite food seasoning is garlic salt. I buy the big container from Sam's and it goes in everything.

3. Lucky is the story of my life. I have always felt I was lucky to have what I have, family, job, etc.
4. My job is something I take very seriously.
5. Many people are very unhappy with their life. I live my life to it's fullest every day.
6. Apple cidar, for spiced cidar to serve in my office today, was the last thing I bought at the store. (It smells great)

Me and My Daughter!

My daughter just recently got her laptop fixed and finally was able to get on my Blog! I've been telling her about it, but she wasn't able to get on it at work, so now she has seen it. She thought it was pretty cool, but noticed there were a couple of posts about her brother and not her. I explained that it was his birthday a few weeks ago, well her birthday isn't until May, so I thought I better post something now.

We had booked our gyno visits together in August, and after we were done we went to lunch and went shopping. Afterwards I took her home and we took these pictures. I have been told we look more like sisters than mother and daughter. I had her when I was 10, (really it was 21) and she is now 26. I know I am partial, but she is a beautiful girl. She is a physical therapist assistant, and her dad and I are very proud of her!

The other picture is of her and her baby, Kal. She got Kal about 6 years ago. She named her Kally, but found out she was a he and now he is Kal.

I've been a terrible blogger! (and Friday Fill-ins)

Okay, so I have been ignoring my blog for awhile. I was gone for meetings in Fort Collins for a week. It was my first meeting as President. A little stressful, but I got through it. This last week I have been reading other bloggers, but just couldn't get into it. I did "What is it Wednesday", but that was about the extent of it. It is not like I haven't tried though. My daughter has been feeling slighted that I have not posted about her, so I have been trying to get some pictures downloaded to post. So maybe next week I will get that done. In the meantime, here are my Friday Fill-ins.

1. Right now, I'm feeling hot!(no not that kind of hot, it is hotter that you know what in here).

2. Home, in my comfy's, is where I want to be.

3. How does one vote count? I just voted early, and I like to think my vote counts, but on election day when they project a winner, when the polls aren't even closed in my state, I wonder.....

4. My husband keeps me on track.

5. Please don't hate me because I'm beautiful. (Ha Ha, it's the first thing that popped into my head)

6. Seeing my kids happy fills me with joy.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to making a birthday cake for my mother in law, tomorrow my plans include going to the inlaws house and making enchiladas for her birthday and Sunday, I want to come home!

How I got my diamond earrings

Another cool story about my son, since his birthday was yesterday. When I got pregnant with him, 23 years ago, we called my in-laws in January before he was born in October, and told them the good news. Since this was probably the last chance for my father-in-law to get a grandson, he made me a deal. His birthday is October 2, so he said if I gave him a grandson on his birthday, he would buy me Diamonds! Well it was fate or something, cause I was due the middle of October, but since they thought I might be having twins, I had an ultrasound in June and they moved my due date to the last week of September.

I couldn't believe it, but my water broke at Midnight on October 1st and he was born at 7:45 October 2. As soon as I was back in my room, that morning, I called my father-in-law in Denver and told him "He better go shopping". 5 Hours later he showed up with a pair of diamond earrings and a football for his grandson who shares his birthday. They are really close and has spent their birthday together most every year.

And I got my Diamonds! This is a picture of the two of them in Alaska this past summer.

I've been boring!

I read other blogs daily, and it seems there are such good writers out there, I get really intimidated. I seem to do the daily blogs, you know, Manic Monday, What is it Wednesday, or Friday Feast. I decided to get with it and write something else.

So, here we go, we went shopping in Colorado Springs last weekend for a birthday present for our 23 (today)year old son. He is at that age when you ask what he wants for his birthday, and he really can't think of anything. When he was younger, he would make lists. So he's had some flat tires lately, so we suggested new tires. Now I, as a woman, think tires are a pretty boring present. But my family has a thing about new tires.

Even my daughter, when she describes a car, it always includes the tires. But I guess I am lucky about this, since I've never had to change a tire. My husband is really good about rotating, and checking air, and we get new ones every so often whether we need them or not!

But it can't be just any tire, they have to be manly for a truck, and it helps if they have raised white letters. We looked at about every tire place there was before we bought them at Pep Boys. So now we will take his present to him on Saturday, and have a little birthday party. I had to get a little something extra, cause the mom in me thinks he needs something to open. And of course a cake. He may be 23, but he will always be my little boy!
