I love star gazer lilies and wanted to share them with you today:) We are up early for Steve to go to St.Vincent's for his scan on his tummy, yesterday did him in, I guess valium and demoralll is some good stuff:) he slept most of the day:) I got caught up on house work and laundry, so all is well! April is at Sean’s, so the house is quiet and still:) My sweet son Jared came and weed eated the yard, that is something Steve can not do, his back will not let him:( so now my house is clean and the yard looks good, for this minute:) So if the bed checker comes today, my bed is made:) never understood why making your bed is so important, but was trained to make it with no creases in the covers:) not that important to me anymore, but it is made today:) Jill had a good visit with Dr. yesterday so our little baby and Jill are doing great! Jenn will find next moth what she is having:) she is looking pregnant now:) This afternoon I get to keep Cole, Sarah has class today:) so of course I will try to get a cute picture for you!! Well I pray you enjoy your day and I am going to do that too!! HUGS!

Today started early with Sean setting off our alarm, of course I can not see without my glasses to get it turned off:( and then I do not even know how to do it right, but I did get it off after Steve and April jumped out of bed! :) I really enjoyed them spending the night, Anna and I got to lay in bed and talk and she studied her science for her test this morning. I taught her a new way to study since she is not likening it, you play like you are the teacher and sit up you stuffed animals and talk to them and ask them the questions on your paper, of course you answer them too:) she loved it and learned her work well, I bet she makes an A! Sherri is having problems with her not wanting to study and Sean was saying he would come there and spank her if she did not start to study, this is a much better way with no spankings and fun! So I hope they will let her do it at home:) Cole was a sweet heart this am, he just smiled and laughed! I am sitting in the Drs. office while Steve gets his throat and stomach scoped, he is not having too many problems but has to have this due to the meds he takes and the meds he has had in the past when he had such a bad leg infection years ago. SO I am here with him, then next Wednesday I bring my mom for a colon scope and then Steve does that next month. yuck! gotta run and get him home and then work:) hugs

Had sales meeting and property tour, I had two homes on the tour and they showed well and got good comets:) I then went to lunch with my dear friend Pam Cupples at my Favorite place, Olive Garden, we got to catch up, its been a while since I have seen her. I then came home and was surprised with Sean and his family and Jared and his, Sean cooked out and we turned it into a family deal, Alex and Jill could not come, Jill was so tired and swollen, Alex said he had just talked to her and she sounded so tired he could not even call and ask her, in which I totally understand, she is very pregnant!! and needs to rest more:) Then I wrote and got the offer accepted on my listing on Trammel! YEA!! thank you Lord! Now I am excited Cole and Anna and Sean and Sarah are spending the night:) yea! Anna is in the Jacuzzi tub having a good time with some little duck soaps that make bubbles:) Well I got a new camera so the picas are back:) hugs and niter!

Today has been hectic and full and has for sure been a Monday, every where I went people said I looked refreshed and rested, I wish I felt it!! I prayed this am that God would be large and in charge of my day and He has been, but I have had a few corrections from Him and have apologized some today:) I just wish I did not get so short fused when things go hay wire on deals or Steve just totally makes me mad, some where in time either here or heaven I pray I can not react but respond to life’s challenges :) Other then me getting in the way of me, its not be such a bad day:) Nite!

After a long,long drive I am home and I have my little Cali dog:) I am sitting in my bed, eating taco bell and watching police stories and ready to go to sleep:) I like it better when we drive part one day and the rest the next! It rained and rained coming home, Steve drove all they way. We stopped at a Shell to get gas, AFTER we pumped gas in our car, 30 gallons, and Mark pumped gas in their car, we saw a wrecker pulling a corvette on the car hauler and then had a 240Z ( new) pulling it too, with the cab totally full of people, then the man next to us at a pump, had a black newer sub and his car would not start, the cars being towed had just bought gas, then there were two others cars broke down in the exit drive……………needless to say they had bad gas, all of them had premium, thank the Lord we had regular and our gas was ok, Steve and Mark drove the cars around for a little before we took off again. The station just kept letting people buy gas is what was so stupid! The people were all upset, I would have been too! If your wondering how I can eat and type and watch TV all at the same time, I can’t:) so I am getting off line and eating:) nite !

Today Alicia and Bob and the kids and Belinda left to go home, I miss them already, now we have a few days left. Steve and I went and did our feet and nails today, it was very relaxing, normally I do not like to sit still long enough to have it done, which is really sad! but its the truth. I may go for a facial Tuesday, just not sure of the products they use and my face is real sensitive, but may try it:) It should be raining here tomorrow, we have Claudette which is a tropical storm here tonight, so where is Steve, Mark and Hannah, they are in the ocean playing in the waves, its not really a bad storm, gusty winds 20-25 miles per hour, rain tomorrow and high in 80's and it will be gone, no tornadoes so far or thunderstorms:) I am all snuggled in my bed watching TV and blogging:) I am home sick, so not sure how much longer I will stay but for sure tonight and tomorrow night:) I get home sick then it goes away:) but its here now, so we will just see what happens!! I love it here and have enjoyed my time with my daughters and son in laws and grand babies but I miss the ones not here and I miss my Cali dog, is that not totally insane! I miss my work and my buyers and sellers, it is so hard leaving it and not knowing what is going on with the deals I have going, I have someone taking my calls so I have not done it for a week and have really left it alone so I can have that needed break, I do that once a year, normally I take my calls when I am gone, but one time a year I take a total break from it and it makes you ready to get on the work treadmill again:) Last year I had a seller who was spastic and would totally bother me daily and made me do his work and would pitch a fit!But needless to say I no longer take their business, but it stressed me so much on vacation, but this year has been totally quiet, either its all going great or John Byrd, who is taking my calls will let me know tomorrow its not:) hope it is!! Tomorrow I think Steve and the boys and Mark and Hannah and April and Molly will go to the Gulf Aquarium, sounds like fun, but I will just chill with Olivia, then Hannah and Mark may go home and Steve and I chill and rest for a day or so, just depends on my home sickness:) I have never stayed in Panama City Beach and I love it, we can just walk out to the beach, it is so close and the condos are real nice here, it has a wonderful inside and outside pool, it was perfect for so many because you can get to all the condos real quick:) I just miss everyone, but thought I may need to rest before I hit the real world of real estate in full force!! well going to bed early, I was up till 2:30 going over some things in my mind and asking God for direction for me, then I just got to sleep when my April came in the room crying and was broke out in a rash, she was freaking because she thought her face was going to swell up real bad, which she had some hives and 100mg. of benadril did the trick, also put her to sleep:) but then I worried and kept check on her the rest of the night, so needless to say I am tired and ready fro a good nights sleep, drinking a little glass of red wine to help with that!! nite all!

I love this pic too!! Steve and Bob are on a fishing trip this am, they left out at 6:30am:) IT is fly fishing or fishing like you do for trout, this way Steve will not hurt his back, before they just fished and it took a lot of power to reel them in and he really over did it, so this time Bob found a way to fish that will not be so exhausting:)
Amy made these strawberries for desert last night, they were some kind of good! Amy and Cain and April and Brock left out today, it is hard to believe it has been a week, Alicia and her family leave tomorrow, so it will be us and the McGill's for a few days, that will slow things way down, we have hit the beach running every day and late at night doing so many things, I have enjoyed my time with each of the grand kids, vacation gives me that special one on one and a lot of just good family time with them:) I just wish Cole and Anna were here and the Averitt girls:) I miss them too much:)
Today is shopping and fun in the sun, then pack for some and be ready to return to the real life on Monday:( Vacations give us the fuel we need to work hard so we can do it all again!! Steve and I are not sure when we will come back, maybe Wednesday:) so for now, just chilling on the beaches of PCB Florida!! hugs

Ever wonder why we like to go to the same places we know, or eat at the same places??????? well I like my old PC better then my new, because I know it and know all the ins and outs of it:) It is hard for me to change to something new, even though it is a much better PC, I go back to my old one, since I fixed it:) I was thinking about that, how change is hard for most people, most of us do not like change, I can adapt to it but I like things to stay the way I am comfortable with. When change comes so does new plans, new ways, new trust and faith in the Lord to help us make the changes. I remember when one of my friends divorced, I told her to close the chapter of that book and she is beginning a new one, even though that is true, it is still so hard to start new chapters in our life. Matter of fact I do not like new chapters! But I know they will happen and when they do, I will squirm and maybe pitch a fit, for sure feel sorry for my self and then guess what??? I adapt and sometimes realize change was for the best, then again sometimes I am not sure. A great book if your going through changes in your life is “who moved my cheese” it helps you realize you have to have change to grow as a individual and changes is actually good for us, it is a challenge, so if your in changes in your life, I pray the Lord will bless you with wisdom and character and strength to endure the change and make you a better person:)))
I remember when we were praying about adopting April, as if it was a decision:) but we had talked to all the children and we had prayed, Steve and I knew we would be older when she was still young and wanted the best thing for April, it was for sure a change God brought into our life, at the time I thought how we we ever do it, but we do and God has so blest us with April, I can not even dream of what it would be like without her, or any of my children for that matter. Life will have good changes and some not so good…………so be a over comer and adapt to the change and let it bring the best of you out in you!! HUGS
