The building behind us is a dance school. I am choosing to celebrate th efact that I now have Carmen full volume next door! One could get frustrated, but hey, its Carmen, its not like I have something with a heavy beat (always frustrated when I can only hear a beat, either turn it down, or turn it up, so I can at least hear the music!). Think what nightmare music one could have to put up with from your neighbours, I am considering myself very lucky! :)

Good for you Alix. Want to come over to do some cleaning here? My maid quit on us cause she thought the house was too big. Thankfully, kids help clean and hubby helps cook. I'm so proud and grateful of Carlos for cooking wonderful meals for us. He finally learned! I'm so thrilled about that! I can't wait to hear about your vacation girl! When are you coming back?Corazon,Those little ones can be so adorable. Enjoy them while they're young.We just celebrated our son's 4th birthday on Saturday. We had a Fiesta/Nacho Libre theme kinda thing going on. The decorations turned out great thanks to my daughter and her friend. The food was of course, Mexican, and we had some "corn on the cob" and lots and lots of "corn chips"! LOL Everyone had so much fun. My digital cam is down so I'm not able to share any pics.

This might only mean something to those of you who have/like cats, but today I was finally relieved that one of my favorite outside kitties, Squeakers, is going to be okay. He's one of 6 who live outside.

For the last couple of weeks he seemed to have lost interest in eating, playing, petting, everything. He is my baby and it really got to me. He'd always run to me when I went outside and we would have a delightful, loving pet session.

He spent several days sleeping in an old wicker baby carriage without even looking up when I put their daily meals and milk out. Even when I went over to check on him and pet him, he just kept sleeping. Didn't even acknowledge me. He started to lose weight, which is never a good sign.

Late Sunday he started to become more intersted in eating and had a few bites of supper and a couple of laps of milk. He ate more yesterday and, today, he ran to meet me as I opened the breakfast room door with their breakfast. Right now he's sleeping in a pile of leaves in the sun. I think my little Squeakers is feeling a lot better. I am, too.

I am so happy for you, I know how you feel. When our oldest son Dan from Denver or our youngest son Mike from Madison come home to visit, you just get that warm feeling in your heart. Life is so short, I hated it when they left town. But I know they have to live their own lives. Now the grandchildren have moved too. Thank God 3 of my children stayed here in town.(sorry I didn't mean to carry on so).

Joann, you can carry on anytime. Children, may be difficult to handle and many times we wonder if they will ever be on their own. Then that day comes and we realize, time sped by far to quickly. I think I would be completely lost of any of my four moved away..My grandkids are what keep me putting one foot in front of the other..

Thanks for understanding. I have another huge heartache, maybe someday I will be able to share it. JoAnn
