I'm up, I'm up… and a few fill ins.

March 8, 2013

It is 6:02 am currently and I’ve been up for an hour and a half this fine, still pitch black morning. Why, you ask? I’d be happy to tell you…

My middle child is going on a field trip to SeaWorld in Orlando today. Orlando is about 3 hours north of here by car. Middle and her friends and teachers are going by coach bus and it will probably be closer to 3 1/2 hours before they get there.

They have a busy day planned, with an instructor giving them a behind the scenes look for about two hours and then some free time and time to explore the park and go on some rides.

Hence, my alarm rang at the ungodly hour of 4:20 am. Her and I got in the car at 4:50 am so she would be at school by 5:15 am. I normally get up around 6:30 am and we leave for school by 7:30 am and that’s practically still the middle of the night for me. I am not what you would call a morning person!

It was eerie driving to school on empty roads. We counted about 10 cars where normally busy morning rush hour traffic reigns (which I will get to enjoy again at 7:30 when I drop off the boy for his day at school).

Pick up this evening won’t be until about 10:30 pm. That’s a loooooooong day. I’m already on my second cup of coffee before it’s even my normal wake up time.

Can you hear that nap calling my name? 🙂

2. A good server/waiter(ess) is very important to having a satisfying meal at a restaurant.

Hubby to the rescue… and a few fill ins!

December 14, 2012

I’m late to the party again.

I had grand plans to join Hilary at FeelingBeachie this morning. Get the post out while enjoying my first quiet cup of coffee after dropping the kids off at school.

That was not to be.

Instead, I was not so quietly freaking out after my WP 3.5 update didn’t go so well and I couldn’t access my admin panel.

I had asked my brilliant tech hubby to do a back up of everything so that I could do the update without worrying about screwing something up or worse losing content.

Even though hubby kept warning me not to do it yet as there had been problems reported with the update, I decided to go ahead anyways.

Not. A. Good. Idea.

Good thing, my knight in shining armor came to the rescue and everything was fixed much faster than anticipated.

Thank you, thank you, thank you my darling!!! What would I do without you?

Now without further ado.

1. I usually ___ but never ____
2. I was named ___because ___
3. I would never change _______about my body, but I would change _________
4. The last time I said “I Love You” was to _________

My answers:

1. I usually get up at 6:30 AM but never on the weekends!

2. I was named Susan because when my mom was pregnant with me, she was reading one of my grandma’s romance novels and the story had an American girl named Susan in it. (I guess, it was predestined that I would become an American citizen one day!) I had to call my mom just now to find out. Its strange that I never knew this story. 

3. I would never change anything about my body, but I would change the way I treat my body and try harder to live a healthful life.

4. The last time I said “I love you” was to my son when I dropped him of at school this morning.

So, there you have it. And isn’t it just wonderful that I learned something new about myself today?

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend.

P.S. My heart goes out to all of the families and victims of the horrendous school shooting that took place just hours ago in Connecticut. What is this world coming to? It’s one thing when nature decides to hand us a heavy blow, quite another when our fellow man strikes out against us. My mother’s heart is aching right now.

Time to say goodbye and some fill ins…

December 6, 2012

Time to join Hilary for some fill in fun.
It’s been a busy week here and I’m pooped after bringing my sister and her family to the airport in Miami.
They are heading back to Germany after their vacation here.
I hate driving down there – it exhausts me every time.
I just barely made it back in time to get the kids from school.
But I made it.
So, without further ado…
