Wisdom Teeth

My kids are 27 & 23 years old. They both had braces when they were in school, and the dentist told me they should have their wisdom teeth out, but I let both kids talk me out of it. Now some 10 years later, they both are having fits with them They come in for awhile, hurt like hell, and then go back under the skin. My daughter has dental insurance and she has an apointment with an oral surgeon next week for a consult. My son, who is in college doesn't have insurance, but I would help him out by getting them out. So I got him an appointment with our local dentist, but he chickened out, and said he was going to step up and be a man and deal with it. Oh well, I tried.

So the saga continues...........

Birthday Party

I run around with some girls, and we golf every Wednesday and play poker afterwards in the golf clubhouse during the summer. During the winter, we just play poker at each other's house. We celebrate everyone's birthday on the Wednesday night closest to their birthday, we call it girls night out. In June there are 3 birthday's, so we celebrated all of them last night with some poker, (Golf got rained out), delicious Pina Colada's and food.
I went to school with most of these girls, and our kids have all went to school together. We have been friends for a long time. We all have went through alot together, good and bad. It is so nice to have a group of girls that would do anything for you and vice versa.

Changes are Good! Aren't they?

I have been a blogger (semi-retired) for about a year now, so I thought I needed a change. I am not real creative about it, but here goes. I just picked new colors, changed a picture and that's about it. The new picture is of me and my daughter taken last year. She has also talked me into getting on facebook. I have alot of family and friend on facebook, so I can keep in touch with them. My work slows down right about now, so I have more time to devote to the computer. Jan. - May are pretty busy at tax time.

This summer is Bill (my husband) and I's 30th anniversay We are planning a trip to San Francisco, doing all the tourist stuff. Spending one day on a wine country tour tasting wine. I want to take a bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge and into Sausalito. I want to take a tour of Alcatraz. I have also been researching restaruants for a romatic dinner on our anniversary.

If anyone has any other ideas let me know. We go in the middle of July.

Where Have I Been?

I have been sooooooo bad as a blogger! I haven't posted for so long, I am ashamed. I still get on and read everyone else's posts, regularly. I have been pretty busy but that is no excuse, everyone is busy.

Just an update on my office life. We are currently under renovation in our old courthouse. We have received a historical grant, and they have started on my part of the offices. The first part of May we (as in Road and Bridge guys) moved to another part of the courthouse with the Commissioners office girls. Most of our records are being stored at another location, we took just the stuff we need to operate. It is one big room, but we have some temporary walls seperating us. We had our phone lines forwarded to their number, so there is only 1 phone ringing, and their receptionist is answering it. She then forwards our calls.

All our filing cabinets are lined up, so when you need something you just stand there and wonder which cabinet you need to open. Things are kind of crazy. Just about the time we get used to this setup we will be moving back into our newly renovated office. They say if all goes well it will be September. Right now they are removing the old asbestos tiles from the floor.

I will try to be a better blogger from now on. I also just signed up for facebook, what was I thinking!
