Hope you are all rested after a few days off. It's planning to get up into the 90's again in my part of the world. I had hoped we would be done with summer. No such luck. We took our little toddler niece home to their parents. I have much more energy now. Wonder why? I loved having her here and I was glad to have my own life back. I can survive anything for a week even a 2 yr old meltdown. difficult child is still in a holding pattern for work. He decided against the roommate and apartment but it's an option for him if he changes his mind. He wasn't comfortable with the young man. Sounded like good thinking to me. His dating relationship with his young lady continues to make good progress and is a positive. Things are progressing in his life. I am hoping this is the month we are done with hurricane Ike stuff(one year later). I can't begin to tell you how much more frustrating this was compared to Hurricane Andrew. Island mentality is similar to small town mentality. Lots of empty tin cans making noise and a lot of gossip. Not easy for someone so far from the action. Sigh. I'm off this morning for day 1 of week 2 of boot camp. It's not really as bad as they make it sound but it's intense. Wish me luck. Hope you all have a good day. I have to pour my coffee down my throat as I run out the door.
