Trying to be patient

I've heard them say, "the night is always darkest before the dawn breaks" and I'm really hoping they're right....but till the dawn breaks into my "dark" night I will continue to breathe in my mantra:
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things that I can not change, the courage to changethe things that I can and the wisdon to know the difference."

For all of those out there that have ever been divorced with can imagine how dark the night can get.... :) But I have hope for change and I will continue to push & pray for it.

Summer Luv'in happened so fast....... :(

I almost forgot.......between Sanibel and Dave Matthews in West Palm Beach we detoured to the land of Brandon, suburbia...well practically the boonies but they do have a starbucks now (which doesn't say much with them being on every street corner nowadays :). Anyhow, me and the girls always look forward to a few days of good ole craft'in, beading and the occassional sewing when we spend some time with our Americanos.
We arrived in the early evening last Tuesday to the welcoming post-it that stated clearly "No shoes inside the house" and were somehow persuaded to stay till Friday morning; only to add stress to my driving back home in time for the concert (which, btw, we missed the first two songs of the concert....) but it's always hard to drive away.
We did the usual Breezy Beads for some bracelets, Mella Mushrooms for their amazing Mystic Pizza (the Buffalo Chicken pizza was better, right Chris?) and Jo-Ann Fabrics for kids' crafts galore! The kids made puppets for Lexie, paper airplanes/oragami, bowls & ....well, I know there was more but I really don't remember. We had a great time, I miss them more each time I go..... :'(
Hey......Who stepped in caca?!?!

I must've drank from The Foutain of Youth

I got carded the other day at the Dave Matthews Concert when I tried to buy beer!! I actually had to call Ernie over to give his ID because I didn't have mine on me!!! Did I mention that I just turned 30 4 months ago??!! Let's just say that it made my month! LOL
Check it out for yourself....Do I look 30 in this pic? ;) Maybe not quite 20 but hey, it was dark out!!!! LMAO!

Summer Luv'in, had me a Blast!

One of our favorite things to do is travel and what better way to do it then with a bunch of family; cooky, crazy, fun-loving family! We took off just in time for mom's birthday (It's almost Shady Pines time! LOL J/K) and the 4th of July. We swam, ate, played way too much dominoes and took in plenty of vitamin D. It was the sweetest of escapes....
