Can't wipe this smile off my face!

Family vacation is looming and that camping trip I was hoping we'd find time to do is not far behind that! I am so excited as is P....Both trips will be filled with fishing and relaxation. No words I tell ya!

The excitement of our family vacation hasn't been there this year...not until last week when I looked at the calendar and realized that it's only a couple weeks away! Now that's all P and I and the kids talk about......it's like a kid on Christmas Eve too antsy to go to bed.

We had an absolutely great weekend...I had the opportunity to FINALLY sit down with my hubby and kids and watch a few movies and actually watch without peering around my computer screen. That was weird! We took the kids to the county fair for a few hours, P and I got to shore fish a couple days, our boy came with us on one of those trips, P and I had a date on Saturday night, and I also found some time to take the kids to the local zoo thing..not sure really what that place is but do know we always have a lot of fun when we go there. I can really get used to this one class thing in a hurry! I can have a life with my family.

They've been so good to me and so patient with my devotion to my schooling and it shows in my grades.....I'm one hell of a lucky woman to have the support of a great husband and exceptional kids. It wears on all of us every once in awhile but overall, we help each other through it and the road is less bumpy.

Soccer season is over now. The boys won their last game and it was a great win. 2-1 but it wasn't enough for them to get to the State Championship. It was a great way to end their season. Next year won't be so great because with their great season this year the boys will be bumped up to the next level which means tougher teams and tougher games. I'm excited for next year already.

Now, we prepare for our trips. The best part of our week long family vacation is there will be families there that were there last year. Our kids made some really good friends last year--the families that caught a gazillion northerns! Those families are returning this year and we all coordinated our vacation so we'd be there together again. The kids are so ready to go. P and I have been ready since we left last year. It's kind of nice to have a familiar place to go to each year.

Then, P and I are heading to the great north woods for a weekend of camping, fishing and hiking. OMG, we haven't been camping since...oh about four years or so? There's a post somewhere buried in my archives about our last trip..the only difference with this one is it's just P and I going. Him and I haven't been camping alone since shortly after we got married over 21 years ago! We're bringing the boat, bought a new back pack today for hiking and are even talking about canoeing/portaging into the BWCA. Not sure that will happen but we'll see, it's so beautiful. It's going to be a great adventure and I couldn't think of a better person to do that with! Would love to see--from a distance of course--a moose or a bear. Our friends were fortunate enough to see a wolf! Perhaps I should leave some food outside the tent! NOT!!!!

Now it's time to do my algebra homework and relax in this beastly heat! Hope everyone stays cool......

For those football fans, it seems the follies are starting again with the whole Fav-ra thing--I'm retiring, I'm not, I'm retiring, I'm not.....as P mentioned to me the other day, if the guy doesn't want to attend training camp he should just friggen say so! I guess we'll see when this season's roller coaster ride is over. Have a fabulous day everyone!

beastly heat!!!! Funny, but since I came back to India(more than a month ago), I have not seen the sun. Its almost been like being in Seattle/Redmond with the whole day being cloudy and rainy and the sun coming out for probably 10 minutes in a day. I wonder if global weather patterns have changed so much that India now gets no sun and USA is getting a lot of it. The day I left USA was supposed to be the hottest day of the season and temperatures were almost 105 or so. And I came to India looking forward to getting a lot of sun for a long time :-)

Hiya Red...yes the heat has been very interesting around here! The humidity is probably the worst. P and I went out to play some horseshoes today and we felt like we were in a sauna! I couldn't wait for the game to end!

I was just looking at the forecast for the week and the humidity looks like it's going to be here for awhile! Ugh! I don't mind the sun or the heat but that damn humidity can just go away! '

Hope you get some sun soon. I know there's been a lot of heat around the U.S. the last few weeks but after the last couple years, it's long overdue I think. It's been a great summer so far! You should have stayed in the states! lol

Summer was definitely overdue in USA. I don't remember ever taking my jacket off in 2009. 2008, there was a summer and I even went to Seattle and it was not raining there so I could go to the boeing plant and museum comfortably :-), but 2009 was really bad. Even spring did not seem to be proper in 2009, it just seemed like autum all through till we hit winter again.

Yeah, the seasons have been weird around here too. Summers colder, spring dryer, and winter is just winter and fall is just beautiful. LOL

For as much as I hate the humidity though I'm loving every minute of summer! It's long overdue and to me sooo much better than the bitter cold. If I start to get cranky about the humidity I only need to start thinking about 30 degrees below zero and that pretty much does it for me! I'll take it!
