and we are BACK!

We arrived safe and sound in Alabaster yesterday afternoon after a pretty good cmaping weekend. It did indeed rain most of the time but the lady at River Rats was kind enough to let us camp under a pavilion that is in the process of being renovated into a bunk house. Here is a pic of our sleeping arrangements:and yes this last picture is a tent, well kind of, it is a hammock that Travis sleeps in and it even has it's own rain fly.....weird I know (I am pretty sure I told him that several times). But he claims it is the most comfortable place to sleep ever and he would hang it in his house if he could figure out how!
So on to the river, Travis and Jason went paddling down the Tellico Saturday and Sunday. The rest of us stuck around camp Saturday during the rain but ventured out into what turned out to be a beautiful day Sunday to watch them.
This is what they did:

and Travis taking a little swim>>>>>>

It was amazing and scary as hell all at the same time just to watch! I can't image actually being in that boat...
Here are a few other random pics from the trip:

Time for a relaxing weekend

I have put in so many hours at work this week that I am afraid to count to see the actual number. We are leaving this afternoon to go camping at River Rats with Megan, Jason and Travis. I can't wait!
I will post pics next week.
I know it will be raining most of the weekend but I have no doubt we will have a great time!

Daddy and Cutler Day

Today Anthony let Cutler skip school and they spent the day together at Oak Mtn State Park.

They hiked up to Peavine Falls, played on the playground, had a picnic lunch, went to the wildlife rescue center, and hiked the Treetop trail. Cutler told me he had a great time and here are their pics...

Oh and here is a pic of our new condo tent. Looks like we will be using it next weekend at River Rats and I can not wait!



A really crappy Friday!

I had to do a termination of sorts today and those always put me in a really down mood. After, things just started coming to me at what seemed to be warp speed and I am now feeling completely overwhelmed. Maybe by Monday I will turn into SuperWoman and get my plan together on how to accomplish these 50 things within the next two weeks...

Taking time to blog

So I am sitting at my desk eating lunch and wanted to just get my mind off work (I have a conference call in 15 minutes) and I logged onto my blog to check out what some of my friends have blogged about recently. Guess what, nothing! I mean nothing since the weekend snow. Now I know you people have something interesting to tell the world so go ahead and BLOG it! I have 15 minutes to devote to non-work and I can't find anything today! This day will go down in history (I hope) as I know the next time this occurs there will be lots of interesting things out there for me to check out! I plan to post more now since I am sure you feel the same about me, deal?
You post more and I will post more!

I was just having an OFF weekend

So Cutler went to Selma to hang with G and PamPaw this weekend allowing Anthony and I to have some long needed alone time. Friday night we ate dinner at a new place in Alabaster, The Patio Grill, and I have to say it was great! Saturday we arose very early despite not having a 3 year old ready to go and headed out to Harbor Freight, Roger's Trading, TGIFridays, Alabama Outdoors, Walmart, Walgreens and Publix! I know....what a day. We fared well for the most part of the day but as the evening started winding down things got a little strange for me. I dropped my Blackberry in my Diet Coke....then I realized I was wearing my underwear inside out all day. these are things that do not normally happen to me, I mean, I usually have my shit on to Sunday.

We went to church in the BLIZZARD (I call it this because we could barely see driving there), I was upset that Cutler was in Selma and not getting to enjoy playing the snow with A and I. After church we headed home to change and hurried out the door to get on the road. The road was slick, the wind was blowing and we were certain this snow was going to last well into the evening if not through the next day. On this hour drive, the snow slacked up, we started seeing grass and by the time we made it to Selma, the snow had almost completely melted. But surely in Alabaster it was still there right????

Nope, when we arrived at home, you guessed it, NO SNOW! Cutler was so disappointed and truthfully so were A and I. So we headed over to some friends of ours for dinner and just hung out for the night. Nothing odd occurred there but shortly after we returned home and were all snuggled up in bed, a car started screeching tires in our neighborhood. Now most of you know that we live in a retirement community and there should never be a reason for screeching tires.

Well, there is a rental house on the corner and lets just say they were having a domestic dispute,
the lady was actually trying to run over the man with her car!!!!
A called the Alabaster PD and let's just say they were there lickety split!

That's all I got right now folks!
Oh and a pic of my Camellia bush covered with blooms and SNOW!
