Dinner With Another Blog Follower !!
Wow! We've really hit the jackpot again. Bruce and I got the great opportunity to meet another blog Follower. Sometime after we arrived in Texas I got an e-mail from a lady in Florida. Her name is Bridget and she is one of my very first Followers.....way back before most of my readers even knew this blog existed. She had read my post about heading for Florida and she inquired as to whether we'd have time for a "meet and greet." YES, we would certainly make time for that.

So after we left Cocoa and the space center, we arranged a dinner meeting in Orlando. Bridget has her own blog and you can check it out. It isn't about an RV life, but about her daily life as a school teacher and mom to 3 girls. When we met at Mimi's Cafe, Bridget arrived with her middle daughter, Brandy.

I was curious as to why Bridget began following my blog since she and her husband are not RVer's. She said that they find the RV lifestyle very interesting and hope to one day get their own RV and travel throughout the country. Great answer and it is pretty much why we all do it. So she stumbled on my blog, long ago, and is now one of my loyal Followers. And for that, I am grateful.
Since Bridget is so much younger than Bruce and I, I was really flattered that she would even want to spend an evening with 2 old fogey's like us. We had a great evening and she and her daughter are just the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. She is teaching Chemistry this year at the high school level and that really keeps her busy. Plus, her oldest daughter is 8 years old and is in competitive gymnastics just like our 8 year old granddaughter, Mackenzie. So we actually have some things in common.

We enjoyed our meal and the conversation was interesting and fun. It was great getting acquainted with another blogger and Follower. I'm still somewhat amazed by all of this blogging and finding such great new friends out there in the big, wide world. Never dreamed this could happen in a million years.

So...THANK YOU....Bridget and Brandy for meeting us for dinner. I really hope we can meet up with you folks again someday.

Until next long for now!

WOW! Really?!

6 months since I blogged? What in the world have I been doing with me time instead of blogging? Just living. Being a Mom of 3 actively, healthy girls. A teacher. A Wife. A Jazzercise instructor. I think that's mainly all. Maybe I can resolve to blog more for the New Year. Well, at least while home on break? lol

All humans interactions seem to have rules or guidelines - some written, some not. If you know the rules you will be successful. Think about it.....

Consistent much?

Back from my "vacation". Trying to unpack now....well, not RIGHT now. Right now I am procrastinating about unpacking hence my entry. lol

I am a true believer that everything happens for a reason. My vacation part of this trip (rafting & ATVing in WVa)was nixed as the Mister obtained a herniated disk in his back on the 4th of July. This means the main reason for our trip was canceled but we went to visit people anyway. The "to-be" part is I don't think my Mom could have handled my girls while we were in the backwoods for 2 to 3 days. While around my old stomping ground, I tried to escape for a couple hour increments for little mini-mental vacations and she would call me complaining about them for various reasons such as not eating dinner. Well, when you oblige each of them with 2 McDonald's milkshakes and endless popsicles I don't expect them to eat dinner especially the 2 year old. Nor would I expect them not to be bouncing off the walls. Why ask me to discipline them when you will get mad at me for making them unhappy. In a restuarante this trip she actually told me not to stifle the toddler squeals and screams that could easily shatter a wine glass as they were "happy noises". Seriously???? Where was THIS lady when I was growing up?

Daily Stuff

I can't even complete my own challenge. *sigh*

This week my Mom is down visiting and at the end of the week we are driving up to Ohio to visit. Maybeeeeeeeeeeee.....I can update on daily happenings.

Yesterday we shopped. Mamaw is of the mind set that when you visit some one you bring a gift. She brought each of the girls a little doll, about 3 inches, in size but had promised to take them shopping once she got here. We bought yarn stuff for the oldest. She is being taught about to crochet. (I have no CLUE how to do it so she better soak in all the direction she gets! lol) The Middie got her Zoobles - girl Bakugon. (Yeah, don't ask me either b/c I don't really understand it but it seems to be the "new" Pokemon type things.) The toddler "needed" a new crown and wand since the Middie accidentally stepped on hers. She has been sporting those and the butterfly earrings that came with them ever since. We also have 48 more Silly Bands.

Today we are doing the pool here instead of the beach. My meds have me avoiding the sun like the plague. I get scabby not burned. It is GROSS! BTW, you think they want to make sure I know to NOT get pregnant. No worries on that Mr. Medicine. A tubal helps me out.
At least I will get to sport my new bikini top (if you can call it that). SPF 50 of the rashguard shirt and SPF 90 lotion AND sitting in the shade. Hopefully that will save me.

Between that am Mamaw not walking too well (doesn't want to trek through the sand or fight the ocean waves she says), we'll hang here. The oldest has her allergy appointment this afternoon then gymnastics and I teach a Jazzercise this evening. My 3 new routines yesterday were decent. I hope to make them better today. :)

Let's see if I can update like this for a few days.....
