Update of Life

So my dear hubby says this afternoon (he, Grace and I were sitting on the sofa) (and this isn't the first time he has said it) I think we need someone for Grace to play with. 10 years ago, I may have jumped for joy, but, huh, hello NO thank you! First off, we'll be paying off the first adoption for some time to come, second off, he will age out in December, and 3rd, my health is not the best. Can you see me trying to keep up with two. Anyway Grace was sitting there, and she got SO upset. The poor thing, she said, "I thought you wanted me". It took some time to assure her she is the only princess at our house. I think three kids are enough, and come March, I'll have four when my oldest gets married. Jeeze I'm getting old.
Grace took pictures for her upcoming dance recital. I'll post those when we get them.
That leaves us with PaulPaul. I'm so stressed, it is NOT funny, we wont know until the end IF he is going graduate with his class. His teacher is not allowing any extra work or allowing him to makeup any missed work. So it is not looking good. So I have a box of invitations just sitting here. Cant plan anything, don't know what to do!
Paul Ray and I are taking Grace to the mountains this summer, I was hoping to go meet all my blogging friends when they get together, but that happens to be the week my boss is out of town, so I wont be able to do that.
Anyway, we're going to Maggie Valley and then to Gatlinburg. Should be a fun time.
Face Book - If you haven't found this yet, let me tell you, it can be addictive. It's hard to keep up with everything. How did we live without all of our electronic toys before.
And if you missed the horse race yesterday, you missed an awesome race. I cant wait to see the top two horses meet up at the Belmont.
Hope you have a great Week~!!!!!!! Weekends are not long enough.

Happy Mothers Day

Mothers Day 2009 - On the way to breakfast with Paul's parents. I get to cook for my mom tonight!
Mothers Day 2008 - Wow its been a year already. She just looks so sweet in this picture.

And this seems like a life time ago. I miss my boys being younger and I miss my old house. Grace will be this age before I know, except this time around I'll really be old when she hits their age in this picture.
Hope you all had a great Mothers Day.

Siblings in China

I just read this and am speechless! Please go to this blog and read this post.
I pray that this family gets everything that they need to bring (hopefully) both boys home.

If you can help in any way, please please do so.

I've always wondered WHAT IF Grace has siblings in China? What if!!!!!! This mom has faced this question, What an Amazing Family! Please pray for them

What a Ride

I love a good race! And today, WHAT A RACE!!!!!!
You could not have asked for a better run.

"An amazing upset in the Kentucky Derby -- 50-1 shot Mine That Bird wins Kentucky Derby 135. Jockey Calvin Borel gets his second Derby"

And this Jockey is just awesome, so sincere. I love watching him!!!!
Until the Preakness!!!!!!

Carnival Dream

All I can do is Dream and wish I was on a ship! Did I say I was in need of a vacation. I NEED A VACATION. I don't want one, I NEED one, there is a difference. In the meantime I'll just plan. And hopefully, we can take a weekend trip this summer.
My cruiseline of choice: Carnival
My ship of choice: Dream (comes out later this year)
My room of choice: well lets face it, I can't afford my room of choice, but perhaps a balcony stateroom this time around.

Our location: Eastern Caribbean (finally) I've been wanting to see St Thomas and St Maarten for a long time.

Sat Day One: Leave Port Canaveral

Sun Day Two: Bahama's : our excursion: ATLANTIS AQUAVENTURE
it seems every cruise takes you to the Bahama, so we might as well enjoy our time there. I've visited the hotel when on a cruise with Bonny, it is nice, but we just looked around, it will be nice to enjoy their beach, etc. They have a waterslide that goes underwater and has sharks swimming, now, dont think for a second I'm getting on that slide, but I can see where it would be fun.

Mon Day Three: At Sea (time for relaxing and some pampering)

Tue Day Four: St Thomas : our excursion: ?????

Wed Day Five: St Maarten: our excursion: ?????

Thur Day Six: At Sea

Fri: Day Seven: At Sea

Sat: Day Eight: Port Canaveral

I really want to do some para sailing somewhere! We've done the horseback riding on the beach, I loved it on the beach, I hated it in the water.

FACEBOOK, I've joined all the others who have a facebook and it is addictive and my DH hates it for some reason!
