Congratulations, Alix. You deserve to be "bustin' your buttons" with pride over your girls.

You'll be enjoying fresh tomatoes before you know it. I already have blossoms on some of my tomato plants. I can't wait.

Congratulations to your girls Alix! I'm so happy to hear you're doing well and I commend you for being a great mom. Keep us posted on Madeleine's Duet competition.

May I brag a bit too? Amanda got 1st place in Art Smart UIL competition, commended performance in Reading, Math and Science TAKS (state exams), and her Reading teacher will be publishing a book for Amanda. She's now working on the illustrations. I couldn't be more proud of my girl.

congrats, Alix. I was going to celebrate that my daughter spoke pleasantly to me for about 48 hours, but that just ended 2 minutes ago.

Hey mudbug, at her age, 48 hours of pleasantness IS cause to celebrate.

With everything bad going, at least there are 2 things that are good. My baby turns 20 today. Whew, I feel old now. And, I was offered manager position at our new storage facility and I accepted. It will be a little while before I actually get going on it. We have to train a person and then it will be REALLY slow there until the remodeling/ upgrading construction is finished. Right now, it only has 53 storage units and parking. We are expanding to have 30 more parking and about 100 more storage units. It's boring there right now because of noone knowing of the upgrading. It was a mess before the boss bought it. I hope that it won't take long to get it going good so I have things to do all day. I'm also doing uhaul rentals as I do at the other place.
