I must make a confession.......
I love the tanning bed.
I know the dangers.
I know the problems.
And yet- I love to tan.
I love to have the 10 to 20 minutes of laying under those blazing lights-
just a few minutes for me.
I feel better aboiut ME when I have a little tan on.
I don't tan well- and I prefer the tanning bed to laying out for hours in the heat. Tanning bed is quick- and only a little sweaty sometimes.

Hi.... my name is Delicia.... and I love the tanning bed.

Well- what I assumed would happen , did.
The kitties are gone.
If you are NOT a cat person....... you can't pretend to be one.
Well- at least I can't.
I really tried. For my Josie- I tried. But alas, they have gone back to the loving home from which we borrowed them. We had them for three months- and there we no joy in sweeping up the cat hair. There was no joy in my shredded shower curtain. There was no joy in the cat jumping up onto the curio case and breaking a figurine that was once my grandmothers. And that was the last straw for me. My children don't break our things- and I don't love those cats enough NOT to care.
So- bye bye.
And Josie was ok. Because really- she wants a dog. She settled for a cat. As soon as the cats were gone, she turned to me and said "I want a miniature schnauzer"

Sometimes you can't get 'generic' when only the real thing will do!!!
A dog was what they all wanted- and a cat just wouldn't do.

I am anxiously waiting for our vacation coming up in 8 days. I am so very ready for the cooler weather of the upper Michigan area. We love Mackinac Island and will be there for 4 days. Four glorious days of 50-60 degree weather- changing leaves- no cars (no motor vehicles allowed on the island- you get there by boat) and staying in a Victorian 1882 hotel. I can't wait. It is the vacation my husband and I take alone-it is our relax time. And we need it! It has been so busy the last few months.
So- if you are anywhere from Flint Michigan on up into the UP around pictured rocks- I'll be there between Oct. 4 and 8th.

Just in the last two weeks or so- there has been a huge facebook rush. Have you noticed? All of the sudden- EVERYBODY has one. Weird. And because now that I have found everyone I ever wanted to have as a friend on facebook (now including Mark Lee ) I have done nothing but browse said facebook pages! I have neglected my blog, and my other obsession twitter

So- I apologize for the neglect. I guess you can find me here.

We are so busy!

I don't know about you- but it seems like we are busier than ever right now! I guess its a good thing for our children to be so involved in activities- but I sure miss my house!!
And my blog.
So I will be back soon.

It was a tragedy

Driving in to school and work this morning- my daughters and I talked about what today is. We talked about what happened seven years ago today. I will never forget that day. I will never forget how I felt- the things I thought- and the things that we went through for the next three months..... the next year. It was a moment in time when we were unified by fear- by anger that we had been attacked right here on our soil. It was a horrible time- and yet it was an amazing time of unity. For a brief millasecond- it didn't matter if you were democrat or republican. We hugged each other at the supermarkets, we stood in line and talked to people we didn't know because we all had something in common. We stopped at fire stations and thanked firefighters for their service. We had ribbons tied on our car antenes- and had ribbons on our shirts. We had stickers on our cars and flags flying outside our houses. We sang the songs and prayed the prayers..... and said we would never forget. I didn't think we would ever be normal again. I think some attitudes are worse now. No- I know some are worse now. Just look at our country now. I am amazed.
Have you seen the images of what happened on tv today? Have you heard about it at all? Well- I remember. And I am proud to be an American. I am PROUD of my military. I am PROUD of my president. We have much to be thankful for.
