I am waiting on some Easter pictures from my daughter-in-law. I really do have a CUTE EASTER POST, where at the second restaurant we went to that day after church, (the first one had a very long wait) we were seated at the table next to a blogger that reads my blog and she recognized our family. Not sure if that's good or bad, but they were the cutest family and we got some great pictures. We had a very CRANKY and TIRED Jack with us, so that may have given us away.
I was touched that there were so many great comments about
Phil and Amy Mickelson. It is a story that has warmed my heart all week. What a beautiful example of FAMILY! I would love to see this picture on the cover of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, but they have not called and asked me....so just HOPING!
I told you this was RANDOM....we saw two good movies this week...I have never seen a Tyler Perry movie that I did not like. EVER! So I loved his new movie. Today my husband and I saw The Last Song and it was good, but very sad. Jack had already read the book and we are both Nicholas Sparks fans.
I am still walking though I have not been blogging about it but I did 4 miles tonight and my walking buddy is invaluable. I had forgotten how much easier and more fun it is to walk with a partner.
Many of you have emailed me about Amy, the Mom to Justin, the 12 year old boy in my town that was abducted and killed a few weeks ago by a twice convicted sex offender. Yesterday he was charged with first degree murder and the D.A. is seeking the death penalty with great passion. I had an email from Amy and she said she was in court and able to look him in the eye. I can only imagine her feelings. Please continue to pray for her and her entire family as they go through the process of justice. I would offer my services in a minute to do away with this animal. There are a lot of things in life that I get, but one that I don't, is abuse of innocent children. I feel myself going into another RANT...so I will stop.
OK, I GIVE, I cannot resist telling you this. Only those that have read my blog for awhile will get it. Last week, Brett Favre became a grandfather...I am hoping he will be the FIRST NFL player to play as a grandfather. That means I am SO HOPING he will play one more year. Brittney had a little boy and they named him PARKER BRETT! What are the chances that would happen? My Parker could not believe it. His words when I called him were "Grammy, no way"!
I had some blood work done last week and my cholesterol is up a little. I had it down to 178 and now its up over 200. Send me some tips on getting it down. I am one of those that CANNOT take statins. They make me feel like I have the flu 24/7, but I have been taking Zetia. High cholesterol runs in my family, especially among the women, so I really need to be proactive about it. I hope the walking is going to make a difference. But if you know any vitamins, natural stuff, I am open to try anything.
And just in case you are an American Idol fan, my favorites are Crystal and Michael. And if you love Dancing With The Stars, I am still trying to find a favorite. I would love to hear yours.
REMEMBER all comments through Thursday night, on either blog, go into the drawing for the $100.00 Gift Basket. IF the stock market stays up all week, there might be some extra prizes! AND I think I may be going to see the MOUSE the end of MAY. I don't have to tell you how HAPPY that makes me.
I really love all my new blog friends. I am going to share a list of some of the GEMS I have found during the BLOG PARTY. Now if this has not been RANDOM, I don't know what is.
Enough random...you are probably beyond bored. The WINNER of the last card package this week is HOUSE QUEEN @ THE QUEEN OF MY HOUSE and THE DOWTY FAMILY ! She has two sites and the CUTEST LITTLE GUYS EVER, well almost the cutest. I just remembered my four little men. Go by and visit her site. I want to read more. It looks like my kind of blog.
