I just whooped Marks butt in Scrabble. I beat him 248-193! :-) I rock, I know....JK

M: Mom, can you wake me up at 5 in the morning? (smile on face)
A: You are 9. Why do you need to be up at 5 in the morning? (BIG eyes)
M: Because I want to watch transformers and that is the time they come on. (smile on face)
A: I am not getting up to wake you up at 5 in the AM. Are you crazy?? ("like hello" look on face)
M: Well, do you have an extra alarm clock I can use to wake me up? (arms on hips)
Dad: I have one in the garage. (laughing at us)
M: AWESOME!! thanks Dad (running to his dad)

This is Mark with Bella after the fishing trip. He needed some puppy love and she was more than willing to obliged. Yes, that is the bed he has his feet propped on.
This is Bruce and Kim. They are a couple that go to church at Calvary. They invited us to come over to their house for pizza. So after tennis and fishing we drove over. Had we known how close they live to us we would have walked. They have a beautiful home and three girls.
After we ate, the boys went out side and played in the back yard. All around the back yard are horses and dogs from the neighbors house. Kim gave the boys some carrots to feed the horses, but you know my boys and that was not good enough. They took the carrots and pulled a bunch of grass and made a salad for the horses. It was pretty funny, and thoughtful, and the horses loved it. It was a great evening out of the house and now we can say we have some friends. We all had a great time! Thank you Bruce and Kim!

Then we went to the movies and saw Wall-E. That was a great movie and they boys watched the whole thing!! After the movie it was dinner time. I asked Mark where would he like to eat at and he said the BBQ resturant by our house. SO that is where we went! It was not all that :-( I dont think we will find anything like Lucilles. Can someone please overnight us some pulled pork and beef briskette? I would say that Mark had an enjoyable Birthday, at least I hope he did.....

We enrolled the boys in the summer camp program. Zachery and I went swimming at the SportsPlex this evening, had FUN! I went to the agency today. I have a job interview tomorrow with Southern Refrigeration Transport for a benefits administration position. We will see how that goes. Still nothing for Mark.... Keep praying please
Tomorrow is Mark's 35th Birthday! Please give him a call and let him know he is loved and not forgotten. :-) Thanks

Dont say "I told you so!" but I think I found my sanity here today. I am going back tomorrow at 10:00 am to see for sure if they have it! Then it is off to look for work. I can not stay at home with the boys all day every day. They have way too much energy for me to try and manage. I found this place today and we went and checked it out and it is REALLY COOL! I will have some pics tomorrow but check out the link and you will see that this is the perfect place for the boys and our family.

Patman Lake! We thought Lake Bringle was nice, this is so much bigger and has camping! This lake is 10.5 miles from our house. Fishing is F-R-E-E. Launching your boat is F-R-E-E. Use of the lake is F-R-E-E. Full hook up camping is $20 a night! Sounds like a future vacation spot to me. Next stop??? The boat store! But first its off to Pizza Hut for all you can eat pizza. Kids eat F-R-E-E!! LOL

I was sitting in the living room reading my book and noticed that is was getting dark. It was only 4:30 so I looked outside and saw the clouds. I ran outside to help Mark put the tree trimmings on the truck while he finished cutting tree into smaller pieces. Just when were done loading, the thunder and lightening started. I asked Mark if he wanted to tarp the load and he did. So we rushed to do it. The rain started pouring!! I was afraid of the storm having hail so Mark said we should move the car. I asked where to cause the garage is still a mess. Next best place??? The back porch :-) I think that qualifies as country living. LOL Look at the rain pouring down.....
