she did it!

I am so proud of Amber! She did it! Happy dance Happy dance! Amber looks so grown up in the picture.

Then there is the picture of me sitting in my dream tub. Every time I go to the home depot I sit in this tub. May some day I will get it.

Not to be out done, our dog Rascle loves to lay in the sun. However she is not a common animal. I don't think she even knows that she is a d-o-g! So she has to lay on a lawn chair.

I found out today that one of my dear friends is coming back from Iowa. Sonja so hates Iowa and is ready to give up her post and risk never being promoted again just so she can get out of Iowa. Anyway, Sonja will be in town for a week and I can't wait to see her. I told Sonja that I would bring the pink the Champaign and that we would go down and sit on the dock and just catch up.

Sonja is the mom of triplets. I so miss them. I asked her to bring them back with her so that I could see them. Sometimes having military friends sucks! The damn military moves everyone around and I always end up missing our friends.

I got my fine in the mail today. A few months ago I got a ticket and the officer had to stop writing because he ran out of room, well I now know how mush I owe. Drum roll please. The amount is $430! Now I just have to find the right time to tell Rusty.

I have been taking some skin, hair and nail vitamins and boy do they work! y finger nails are getting so long that some of them have actually started curling under! I can't tell if my hair is getting longer.

O.K. I should go get some dinner ready for Rusty. Tonight he is going to have steak, baked potatoes and a vegetable. I am going to have a salad.

I have been eating so bad for the last few weeks and I need to get back to my "good" eating habits. I am still not eating any junk food, but I have had fast foods instead of healthy food.

Congrats Amber!! I use to have a tub like that except mine was a very old one it was in the first apartment we had and I was like 7 months pregnant trying to get in and out of it my husband would have to come get me out LOL I was so huge. He loved it because he was over 6ft tall and that was the only bathtub he could fit in with the water up to his neck other than a swimming pool.
Take care, Chrissie

I forgot to say when your friend comes back I wanna see those triplets. I couldn't imagine being a single mom to three the same age. Wow.
Take care, Chrissie

I like the photos and now the story of that ticket.  Four hundred and something, well, I guess it took quite a bit of ingenuity to win a ticket that large.  So that was why Rusty was shaking his head.  Tcch tccch.  Gerry
