Happy New Year 2013!

Yes, Bring it on 2013 - this is going to be MY year.  I am tired of being fat and unhappy and the only way that is going to change is if I make it change.  I am going to rejoin Weight Watchers (for the umpteenth time) and start exercising more - would really love to take Zumba or Jazzercise as well. 

Wish me luck!

Scenes From A San Diego Summer

 Hello - is there anybody out there?  It has been too long since I have posted to this blog.  Life has just been too busy but I hope to post more frequently now.
We had a lovely vacation in San Diego in August to visit my Dad and stepmother.  The weather was HOT for San Diego but we really enjoyed ourselves and were able to really relax.
Here is the Hotel Del Coronado - a must see if you go to San Diego.
This is from LaJolla Beach.  We went to the Cove to see the Seals, but they were gone, all in the water or on a large rock out in the ocean.  There were a lot of people sunbathing where the Seals usually are.  Personally, I think that is kind of gross.  I don't think I'd like to be laying in the sand where Seals do their business, have babies, etc.  Ewwww...

We also took a "2 hour tour, a 2 hour tour"
 of the Harbor and that was really cool!

Michael has a blast touring The USS Midway Ship and Museum.  He loved all of the planes that are on the flight deck.  Another "Must See" if visiting San Diego.

Finally, a beautiful view of the Sunset from my Dad's place...awesome!
More photos to come in another post.

Happy New Year - 2012

This is about how I feel today although I have been somewhat productive - shredding papers and receipts and just enjoying the day. We went over to our neighbor's house last night and I have a new favorite cocktail - Effen Black Cherry vodka and 7 Up! Quite delicious! We actually made it past midnight and the boys ran outside banging pots and pans and whooping it up - it was so cute!

Wishing you all a wonderful 2012!

It's A Small World After All...

We went to Disney World last week and had a wonderful time. We kept it a surprise from Michael until we got to the Southwest Airlines gate at the airport, then I handed him a typed up note saying "Surprise, Michael...We are taking you to Walt Disney World"! At first he thought we were going to California (Disney Land), but then when we told him Orlando, Florida, his face lit up with the best smile! Michael had a lot of fun getting autographs from all of the characters. The whole family had to get a hug and a picture with Pooh!
I had not been to WDW since around 1990 and WOW! This place has really grown. There is now the Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom parks in addition to Epcot and The Magic Kingdom.
