Here are some pictures from Sardinia. Shows the old town, the beach, the boat ride out to Neptunes' caves.... and the caves themselves... So the highlight of our trip was the dining experience that included an english speaking (not american) family sitting next to us at an outdoor section of a "ristorante" or cafe'. They sat down at the table to the left of where we were dining...and when their toddler got fussy and needed to go potty, they simply pulled out a training toilet and had him do his "business" right there at the table. Then they proceeded to walk over to the closest flower box and dump the "product" on the wall behind the box. If this wasn't enough for entertainment, one of them pulled out a diaper wipe and cleaned the potty and sat down to eat. (where were the hand washing memo's when I needed them)

We indeed had a blast........ and would go back again. :) ps. I hope this works.

Sardinia, Happy 4th!

Jman playing on the beach and giving me funny looks. The water is as clear as it looks here and beautiful! Temps were in the 80's and 90's for our stay in Sardinia. We stayed in a town called Alghero.......and per usual, had some adventures, laughs and some dang good tiramisu!

Jman loves his soccer, so he is playing again for his 3 time. 2nd outdoor season. His skills are improving, but he still has a long way to go to match up with some of these kids. His favorite positions are goalie and defender, which is good cuz that is where Coach keeps putting him.

Crazy week

So monday we have storms come thru that have the potential for creating thunderstorms. And as some of you know, last year for the tornado that touched down, I was outside when the sirens went off saying, GEE, wonder what those are for??? So back to monday, I am driving home.......when it starts to pour....... sideways.......... with lightening......and HAIL...... UM? So needless to say I stopped and thought, HMMM, do I get out of my car and run for the ditch......or stay here........ finally it passed some...........

Then Tuesday......... I am again driving home... decide to go a different way thinking MAYBE it will be faster....... only to get rear ended at a red light that had turned green........ (not faster) (and yes I am okay) (and so is the car)

I almost stayed in bed today. Just to play it safe.

Pray for my safety.

Stuck cat

So yesterday we headed out of town to go to a baby shower and stay overnight with Jman's paternal grandparents....... had a good time. Got home around 1215 today. Now normally when we come in, the two cats come to say HI and greet us...... but only one did today. So I start looking around. No cat to be see in his normal places, not on the bed, not on the couches....... so then I go down to check in the den and I can hear him crying.... so is he stuck in the closet? nope. in the dryer? no, the sound is coming from in that bathroom with the water heater, and washer/dryer. Low and behold he is stuck behind the water heater that only has 1/2 inch clearance between the wall and the heater on the and wall on the two walls of the corner. Um, not good.

5 people and an hour later we finally manage to come up with a plan that works. Think animal planet and those noose thingys. We get it looped around his neck and get him pulled up high enough to grab......

There is no telling how he got down there..........

Things I have recently learned

So I have learned a few things since becoming a homeowner.
  • whoever coined the term "paint the town red" has NEVER actually painted anything red.
  • when painting red someone will track it over the light colored carpets.
  • some people think it is a good idea to store their dish towels in the dryer vent.
  • I am not one of those people.
  • the best way to remove that towel is with half a curtain rod.
  • I need a cordless drill.
  • the shower door is smarter than I am.
  • 26 kitchen cabinet knobs are expensive.
  • leaves take up a lot of space in lawn bags. you can never have enough.
  • boxes will multiply if you leave them unattended.
  • Home Depot and its staff are your friends.
  • those friends will rekey your locks to a new key for $5 per lock.
  • that is WAY cheaper than calling a locksmith.
I am sure I have learned more and as I think of it, I will share.

I was really hoping to be able to post more good news by now, but people are dragging their feet. ARGH.

So anyway, Jman got glasses this week and hopefully that will help with school work. Other than that, and this waiting game driving me to the brink of insanity........... nothing. I got nothing.

A New Year

So I just got back from the worst air travel experience I ever had. The flight to Europe.....well the first leg, the flight was so delayed that we would miss our connection, and oh, how lucky for us, there is only 1 seat available on any other flight to our destination. Please come back tomorrow Ms. Kbear! Okay. Then coming home, I was thinking okay, WOOHOO. We made it into ATL an hour early......... checked the board, our flight was a little we went to eat. Came out of dinner/lunch (god only knows which meal it was, I was/am jet lagged) to find that our flight had been completely canceled. OH, go stand in the incredibly long line to see when they had re booked us.... OH, Ms. Kbear, you can come back tomorrow. UM???? HELLO??? I have no clothes......... oh, here, you get a t-shirt. Thanks!

But the actual time with family and friends over the holidays were great. I will download pictures soon so you can see. Then I have other news to post also.
