Am I really this old?

Well today was my birthday! I can't believe that I am getting so old!! I went to dinner at Shogun last night with 8 other friends. We did the 'Hibachi bar.' I had never been there before last night. It was really good! They cooked the food right in front of us on the grill and it was made to order. It was a lot of fun. After dinner, we went to the 'old' Parkway, now The Bulldog for a drink. It was nice. I could tell lastnight when I was ready to go home before midnight, that I am getting old! That used to be my starting time to GO OUT! How things change...

Today, my mom and I went to eat lunch together. Every place we picked to eat was closed for one reason or another. We tried 3 different places, until we ended up eating at Deanie's. It was very good! We had so much food, I couldn't even breathe. We got the BBQ shrimp for an appetizer and they were delicious! And we split a half of a seafood platter. Needless to say, we had dinner just from the left-overs! It was really a great lunch.

Then tonight, Miss Phyllis, Mr. Billy and Ma'Ma' came over for cake and ice cream. My mom made a strawberry cake! It was goooood! So, now I am stuffed from way too much food for one weekend and my b-day is coming to an end! It was a wonderful birthday! One more year down...I wonder what this year will bring for me??? I'll keep you updated!

I do want to thank everyone for the beautiful cards, gifts and phone calls today!! I have great friends and family!!

been busy...

It's been a busy couple of days. Yesterday morning, I went back to the eye doctor, trying to get these new contacts to work out for me! I got them about a week ago, but I am having problems getting them in my eyes! Not a good thing. I am going to try for another 2 weeks. (Needless to say, I didn't manage to get them in this morning either! But I was in a rush.)

After the Dr.'s, I went to see Miss Phyllis for her birthday. I bought her the 'Rachel Ray 30 Minute Meal cookbook!' I think she liked it! Then, I went to the club with my three "little" cousins (they are not too little anymore 13, 14, and 15 years old). It was fun! Then they slept at Ma'Ma's house, so I hung out with them for a while. They also gave me a bouquet of flowers and a card for my b-day! That was so sweet of them! They are all good boys.

Today, I had to go to another funeral (the second in one week). My friend's grandmother passed away. Then I went to lunch at Cheesecake Bistro with some girls from work. That was nice. After that, I got a pedicure, which was wonderful! And finally, we went to the club tonight for 'pot luck' dinner. It was storming, so no one could go swimming, but it was nice and quiet out there! There were not too many kids. I just got home and now I am going to watch some of my shows on TV. Just thought I'd drop a line on my blog! ;)

Sex and the City

I just have to say that I am so glad that Sex and the City is being replayed on TBS. I love seeing all the old episodes from years ago.

From the start of the show in 1998, I have watched every episode; however, I didn't realize how much I have forgotten. To me, this was one of the greatest shows ever created! I never bought the seasons on DVD, so I am TiVoing the episodes every night and then, I am going to put them on tapes.

They have cut out some (obvious) parts, but to tell you the truth...while I am watching these TBS episodes, I can't tell what is missing. The meat of the show is there, if you will, their relationships and that is what I loved about this show. And to my surprise, they can use lots of 'words' on TBS that I would not have thought they could!! I think they have done a great job and thank Goodness for TBS bringing back such wonderful memories of this incredible show!! I am a happy gal from 9:00-10:10 p.m.!! :)

P.S. Happy Birthday Miss Phyllis!!

I have been by this computer most of the day, since it rained today and I didn't make it to the club or anywhere else. My neck is starting to hurt. As you can see, I finally figured out how to publish a picture on this 'blog.' Frankly, I don't even know what I did to get it there, but it's there!

I was trying to update my web page earlier today, since it has been so long since it has been updated, but I hit a brick wall there. I don't know how to do it anymore. It is still using an address that I had over 2 years ago! I guess I'll just wait for Glenn to come in in August and help me with it! I'm sure he will look very forward to guiding me, yet again, on another computer project of mine!! But that's what he's here for, right?? ;)

Well, my eyes are getting a bit jumpy from being here all day. I'm going to go and watch my shows that I "TiVoed" tonight!! I'm sure I'll be up until 3 a.m., but hey, it's the summer--I can do it now!! By the way, I am liking my TiVo a whole lot!! It's been working great! I am a certifiable GEEK!!! :) Later...

This is from Scott's graduation. I was just trying to see if I could publish a photo on here! Posted by Hello

T-doe has TiVo!

I finally did it...I invested in TiVo!!! :) I debated on getting TiVo for about 3 years now, but I took the leap today and bought it! Glenn has had it for almost a year and a half and spoke very highly of it. I aggrivated him enough about it, so I figured I better get it eventually!

I hooked it up all by myself, with only one call to Glenn and one call to TiVo technical support! I have everything working, so far, I think! It's a very neat device. I sure hope I get my money's worth. I'm sure I will! I am only about 2 hours into it. I haven't been able to set up all my shows that I want to record, because it needs to do some "thinking" for about 4 hours--whatever that means! But I'll keep you updated on my progress.

I was just the past month, I have bought a new digital camera, a new computer and now TiVo! No more new technology for me for a while, until my wallet catches up with this technology that I just bought!!!!! :)

Drivers 360

I watched Drivers 360 tonight as I have been for the past few weeks it's been on. I was excited because Dale Jr. was going to be on for the first time. The first couple of segments with him were good, they showed his house, his company, his sister and niece, etc.

But then they showed when he met his infamous girlfriend, whom I thought (and was hoping) was just fictional, up until now.

It was crazy the way they met. He had seen her and thought she was 'hot' and then she asked him for his autograph and he asked her for her autograph. She laughed and walked off, but then Dale got someone to go tell her he was not kidding and wanted her number!

She's cute, I guess, but I think I liked him better as a 'single' man! I do think he needs a girlfriend, though. I just had dreams it would be me!! LOL!! ;) Just kidding. Oh well, we'll see how long it will last! I'm a bit depressed now, so I am going to sign off... ;)

keeping up with the blog....

I have not been keeping up with this as much as I thought I would, but I decided to get on here again. There has been little going on in Metairie.

I did go to A March of Dimes fundraiser on Friday night with some friends of mine. It was fun. It was a silent auction, but I didn't bid on anything.

The weekend was low keyed. I watched the race on was pretty boring until the last few laps when Harvick and Kenseth got into each other!! My man Dale Jr. came out smelling like a rose again. He has luck on his side this year, it looks like! I hope he goes all the way.

As far as our fantasy NASCAR game goes, I have decided that whomever I pick, will inevitably get screwed in the race. I have some black cloud over the racers I pick. Therefore, I have come to the conclusion that I will pick the drivers that I don't want to win and see if the bad luck continues with them! I know my brother, Glenn, feels the same way the past few weeks with his picks!

Well, I will sign off for now. Hopefully I'll be on here again sooner than before!

Summer is here!

Well, I was reading Glenn and Tammy's blog and I decided to play around with this. It ended up being so easy to create that I ended up on this page and began typing!! I'm not even sure why I am doing this, but I guess it's because it's summer and I have some time on my hands to do whatever I want, now that work is over!! That is always a good thing.

I have been spending lots of time at Lakeside Country Club going swimming and laying out. I got to read some of my book today out there in between swimming. I'm reading Bombshell. It's one of the "Red Dress Ink" publishing company books that I love to read.

I'm not doing too much this summer...except I do have a trip planned to Las Vegas with some teacher friends from work. We are going in late July and staying at The Venetian Resort . We also have tickets to see the Cirque du Soleil show "O". I am very excited about that. So it should be a fun time.

Well, I'm going to sign off for now, since I really had no intention on doing this, but we'll see, it might be fun! Happy Summer!
