I'm still here...

Hey everyone! Yes, I'm still here. We've been plagued with computer problems: hard drive crashed, mother board fried...everything was wiped out. All my pictures from CA to Gettysburg to Rachel's graduation: gone. It's very upsetting. Now we're waiting to get a recovery cd from HP. I have no sound, no graphics..ugh. I'm beginning to hate computers as much as I hate cars!!!

Late last month I sprung a surprise (well, not really "surprised") visit on Dar! Becky was scheduled to go down there to visit and I decided to go with her for a few days. Seems that Dar had a feeling that I might be coming for a visit. When she met Becky at the airport, she said, "So, where's your mom?" I ran up behind her, covered her eyes and she screamed, "I KNEW IT!!" LOL! That night just Dar and I went to Outback for dinner. Sunday we went to Sanibel Island....sooooo beautiful! We swam in the Gulf of Mexico and caught some needed sun. Monday we went to a local water park where we had a BLAST! I was chicken to go on some of the slides in the beginning but by the end of the day I had gone on almost every ride/slide! We had a lot of fun! Her boys are getting so big..I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw them. Becky is still down there...she'll be home on Friday night. My flight home was nice..I had the emergency exit row with no seat in front of me! (I have long legs as I'm 5'10" and all legs.) There were lightening storms to the west the entire flight home so it was like watching fireworks for 2.5 hours. Very cool.

Jackie is going back to AZ...and not on my dime, either. A friend of hers in AZ has offered to pay for everything as long as she gets back into the WINR's program in Mesa. My mom threw her out last Friday because she (my mom) was leaving for Disney World with my sister's family the next day. However, she's back there now because she conned my mom into letting her back in til she leaves for AZ. (My mom is in FL til Saturday.) It's frustrating...

It's been freaking hot here in NJ...I think we hit 101 degrees today. They're predicting that the heat wave will break tomorrow night...I sure hope so. We can't even sit out on the deck at night for fear of melting.

The gym is going well. My friend Eliza has decided to tag along lately so I have a training partner! I haven't really lost weight but I am seeing muscles so that's cool.

Well...time for dinner. Hope all is well with everyone.
