Don't know how I missed this but I have another thing to cross off my list - can I get a Woot Woot! I did plant a vegetable garden - a nice big one! Unfortunately between Jay's ACL surgery, me going back to work and this record rainfall, it hasn't been a huge success with one small exception. My tomatoes are awesome!! I have always viewed tomato growing as something of an artform. Probably because my dad is the Picasso of tomatoes. Seriously, the man could write a book. Well, he has, just not about tomatoes. Sorry. Small tangent. Anyway, my tomatoes are doing awesome. I have picked enough to share and each one is picture perfect!
Feels good to be blogging again - looks like I will "ketchup" soon! HAHAHA green thumb and funny too! I AM almost 40 and fabulous!

Another one bites the dust! Our family celebrated our Country's independence in grand style at Bethany, Oklahoma's Freedom Festival. What a great night. It had rained off and on most of the day but it really just made for a nice cool evening. By nightfall, we found a perfect spot in the grass to lay out our blanket - perfect viewing for fireworks! And then it started to rain. It was the perfect (and romantic) moment to cross another thing off my 40x40 - so i grabbed my husband of 12 years and kissed him in the rain. Mission accomplished!

I was the roller disco queen of Wheatland Ave circa 1980. There was an "Official" contest with all the kids on the block. While i was far from the only entrant into the contest as the oldest participant, I was the natural choice for the sole (and soul) judge. I won the contest hands down in a unanimous decision. I am pretty sure I also fabricated a sash out of a pillowcase to crown my achievement. If only my mother would have been as present with the camera as I am with my own children. Although perhaps it's best that the 10 yr old version of me with tight pants, halter top and a pillowcase draped over me is one image that is better left to the imagination! Fast forward 30 years (wow - how is that possible) to the current version of me. We were invited to a birthday party for the son of one of our nearest and dearest. The party was held at the local roller rink!! I was a little nervous but excited to showcase my roller disco skills. Yeah, not so much. Apparently if you hang up your skates for 30 years, it's nothing like riding a bike, you just can't get back on and go! And - imagine my surprise (and disgust) when they didn't play Funky Town one time!!! Seriously, that's just wrong. How am I supposed to skate to Eminem's Shake that A$$? That was probably my problem, the music. Yea, it was the music. There were no crowns to be handed out last night and no pillow case sashes but I did put on my skates and make a valliant attempt and for that, I consider myself the reigning roller disco queen of Roff Ave. Officially.
