Amber, I love standup comedy! I hope you have fun. I had a friend who took a class once and for the final grade they had to all do standup performances and she invited me. I thought she was so brave to do that.

Weekend is here, yay! Have a great one!!!

Wow big week for you!!! Hang in there with the healin' hon. It takes time and gets very frustrating. So sad you're still dealing with "Seroma Joe". That totally sux!!! But I'm so glad you are starting to feel incrementally better each day. That's important!

Yay! Tony's on his way back and will be home with you tonight!!! Woot!!!

I'm saying prayers about your interview and that God places you in the exact position where he wants you. MUAH!!!

YOU WILL DO GREAT!!! I think my interview went well.... Takes a minute to hear anything though.

I hope Tony makes it back safe today!!!

Melanie- You will be pleased. Amber has the cutest clothes. I still wear stuff she gave me!

Idol- I was mad... but he is a cutie and a GA boy so it went away quickly. And when I heard he had to have his kidney replaced and this was helping, my heart fell for him. But now he has the money to get it done. SO that is GREAT!!!

Have a good day at the gym! I gotta get back being more consistent with my working out.

Remember, Jesus is Changing the direction of your life and He is Directing what is happening. You need only to do what is to be done THAT DAY and leave the outcome of each day to Him. He will Place you where He wants you. Look at every opportunity as a door you are trying a key into to see if it is the one that the key fits! When you find the right door, the key will turn in the lock and you will be happy to walk through the door. It is an exciting journey walking into the unknown with Him... Just enjoy the interview ~ relax....
I like the key metaphor. Pretty cool. It could be used in a lot of situtions in life .

Yeah the comedy thing was really fun 17 comis that went for like 5-7 minutes, the top 4 go back tonight and our friend made it, maybe cause I found the stack of ballots and voted a few times, LOL
So it is hot here today I had to break down and turn the air on, honey was dying! So we are going to get the tennis rackets and play tennis, lets see lat time we did this 3 years ago we played one hour and I had tennis elbow for a year, LOL, I am hoping that now with weight loss and so on it will be a tad bit better!!! Then we have to get our pool membership, and a dip in the pool sounds good!

Enjoy the tennis and the pool! DH used to plan tennis regularly but I've never been much for it. As he says...."baby, you couldn't hit the broadside of a barn".... 'nuff said.

So now debating pool or lay on the couch the air feels so good!!!

I saw a couple playing tennis the other day and thought, hmm I need to dig out our rackets. Its a lot of fun. Glad to hear that you had fun playing.

We had to break down and put our a/c in last night. It was unbearable. Can't wait for my grandma to get her pool filled. We will be there tons this summer!!!

My A/C went in a few weeks ago.... family likes it cold! They have their area downstairs like ICE! Good thing I can stay upstairs where it is a nice warm 72* - just cant handle humidity of 90%.

Understand the hesitancy to hurt yourself! You have been through too much to mess yourself up now.

Happy your HUNNY is back! Have a fun, safe weekend!

Boy did we have some serious storms last night, it says the humidity is 91% they are calling for them on and off through the weekend, no ill effects from tennis, so far, LOL Seeing an old friend from beauty school today at her Hungarian Club, so lots of language we dont understand, LOL But whatever should be interesting, LOL Hoping to get to the pool, never did get there yesterday, but we did get signed up. Mowed and did other stuff around the house prior. Have to make my wing dip too for Monday and the brownies. So just chilling sort of nice we watched the Iron Curtain with Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher wow amazing movie, check it out if you get a chance.

Enjoy the friend visiting and pool time!

Careful with the brownies!

We've had unusual thunderstorms here, too-- not hot, though! Still crispy spring weather. Glad you signed up for the pool. We're not sure if we are going to buy a pass or just pay the admission when we go, I think this summer we can only manage once a week. If we can go twice, then a pass would be better. Still mapping out the summer! So much on the agenda!

I think our pool is expensive $360 for the family for the summer, some people that moved here from closer to Philly said it used to be over $1000 where they lived, LOL I am a cheap ass!!! I have my bikini on, I am wearing it, I am feeling bold!!!!!

<wolf whistle> ooOOOoo! Bikini!

That is expensive, Amber, a household pass for our pool is $420 for the entire year, and that includes all the pools, open gyms and weight rooms in the system. Just a summer pass is $140. Of course, we probably pay a buttload more taxes than you do, so I'm probably more screwed than you. I DON'T WANNA THINK ABOUT IT.

on having the bekini on!

No pool pass here! YMCA has indoor pool & we all are members but never go swimming.... Daughter has pool but is never home for us to go... The riverfront has a water park (large area with water jets coming out of ground-it is loads of free fun for the family! We usually go there! Can get a lot or a little wet- clothes or swim suit!

You mean you actually stayed awake for a movie! Yay! Never saw that one, but then I dunno that I was interested in it? May have to check it out now! I'm anxiously awaiting Snow White & the Huntsmen to come out in June!

Rock that bikini mama!!! You earned it!

We've had glorious weather here! The high here was like 80 yesterday and I believe is more of the same, I haven't been outside yet

Oh tennis sounds fun! I took a racket sports class in college. It was a blast !

I can't wait until I am in shape enough to be able little enough back pain to play tennis. I love it when fun is exercise and exercise is fun .

Have fun!

Wow. What all is included in that price? Our summer pool family membership is $100. There are 6 pools one can use. Two of them are large aquatic centers. Another smaller one has been recently updated and has a zero entry depth at one end like the larger aquatic centers. My ds is now a Lifeguard for our city pools. Hard to believe he is old enough! I began taking him there when he was an infant.
