A Quick Update

Oh, how I miss having Internet at my fingertips. We have been so busy that we haven't had much time to run off to the library to blog. I do check my messages quickly, but haven't had time to post anything.

Our friends, Jeff and Jan, left yesterday to go back to Pennsylvania. Boy did that week ever fly. We had a really good time with them. I have tons of pictures that I plan to post on Friday when we go to Gretchen and Brian's to use their computer. We are so blessed to have such a great SIL, who treats our daughter so well and welcomes us into their home so willingly. I know I have mentioned many times how much I love my MIL and how she is like a mother to me. She has set such a sterling example of how a mother-in-law should behave. I am trying to pattern myself after her. I hope some day Brian will "rise up and call me blessed" as I do her.

Anyway, Brian will help me with my pictures on Friday. Right now, Gretchen is off to San Jose on business. It's interesting to me how the company doesn't seem to see their way clear to give her a store of her own, but every time they have problems at other stores, they call on Gretchen to go bail them out. She says she doesn't care as "retail isn't going to be her life". I hope she means it. They don't deserve her. Spoken like a true mother, huh???

Jim and I sent for the "Weight Watcher's" home diet plan and it arrived yesterday. We are in the process of familiarizing ourselves with it so we can get started. I am excited and apprehensive at the same time. We both need to lose weight and strengthen our bodies. We have been working on the strengthening part since we arrived here. We are walking, I'm going to Curves and Jim is shooting baskets at the local park. Now, if we cut back on our eating, I think we might be a little more fit by summer.

Watched "Jericho" last night. Just when I had almost decided not to watch it again, it took a really interesting turn. Now I'm hooked again. Has anyone else watched "New Amsterdam"? I was pretty fascinated with it. I just happened upon it last night as I couldn't bear to watch "Big Brother". I have HAD, HAD, HAD it with reality shows. UGH!!! Okay, Pam. Tell us how you really feel. Anyway, I kind of liked the "Amsterdam" thing.

Also, we saw "Vantage Point" last week. We really liked it. Brian and Gretchen saw it later and they liked it too. Funny, it didn't get a very good review in the local Las Vegas papers. Any comments on that?

Well friends, the clock on the computer tells me I am nearly out of time. I really must find a way next year to have short term Internet service for the time I'm here. I worked on it this year, but found I'd have to sign a two year contract to have broadband. Why would I want to do that when I have a wonderful, reasonable Internet service provider at home. I will have to do some research before next year.

Until next time, love and hugs to everyone.

Sounds like you are having a great time! I have wondered about "Vantage Point." It stars Matthew Fox from my FAVE tv show, Lost.
