Small World

I am the youngest of 4 children.  I have two older sisters and one brother.  My brother drives an enclosed transport truck.  When someone has a vehicle the needs moved from one place to another they call him, he loads it into his truck and deliveries it for you.  He goes all over the country, from coast to coast!

Since Monday my husband and I have been in Augusta, GA.  My husband is working locally this week.  This morning about 5 minutes after he left for work he called me.  He said I should call my brother.  For a brief moment I thought something was wrong.  He then went on to say his truck is parked in the hotel parking lot across the street!  Say what?!?

By complete accident my brother got a hotel across from ours not even knowing we were here!  He thought we were still visiting people in Florida.  As I had lunch with him today we talked about what all we did last night. There were several times we almost bumped into each other!  We missed each other at dinner by two restaurants!  We almost went to where he ate and he almost went to where we decided to have dinner!

Moments like this are for the memory books.

I finally got to meet Sydney Lynn! She was born in June 2012. I have more pictures to post but like this one of the two of us. She was a bit of a grump. She had shots the day before and there was a lot going on at the party!

Mirror into my travels

My view during our trip to North Augusta. This was on I-95 North bound. Took this with my pocket camera. I normally always have a camera on me. I have a nice Canon that I use the majority of the time. Then I keep a Sony Cyber Shot in my purse.

Morning

I am not a morning person.  I know for some they are thinking “Joy this is not morning!”  Well for me it is very much morning!  It is around 8:20 and I am showered, dressed and once I finish this ready to walk out the door.  Not my normal by any stretch of the imagination!  However, this week I am traveling with my husband.  Today we leave to head down to Florida.  We will be spending the night with my parents before heading to the Coast to see my in laws.  Saturday there is a surprise 40th birthday party for our brother in law (married to my husbands sister).  I have not been able to mention this anywhere for fear he would read about it, thus blowing the surprise!  If he was going to find out it sure as heck was not going to be from me!  I have a history of putting my foot in my mouth…A LOT!

I also have the pleasure of meeting for the first time the aforementioned sister and brother in laws new baby!  She is not brand new.  She was born in June.  I am really looking forward to that.  Everyone knows I love babies!  Mostly babies that I can play with, teach them things their parents would not ;-), then hand them back when I am done!  Yes I am “that” Aunt! :::giggle::::

Hello world!

I started this blog for several reasons.  I need something to challenge my brain.  I know, one would think being a housewife that never gets anything done I would not need to challenge my brain!  However, I think everyone needs to challenge their brain.  This is also a step out of my comfort zone.  Also something I desperately need to do.  I am hoping to be able to share bits of my life with people.  Perhaps some of those bits will inspire or help or just make you laugh.  I am okay with just making you laugh.  It helps if you know me in person but even then I can be pretty darn funny! 😉  Oh Lord I used an emoticon in my first post.  The blog could be doomed from the start!
