Soccer Day

Hi all--A day without a picture!! Sorry, haven't quite learned how to import images from places other than my pictures! I'll work on that.

Went to my niece's college soccer game today--she is a walk on & this is her first season with the college. SO she got 27 seconds of play time--she was EXCITED! Why? This is the first game that she has been taken off the bench, so she feels her foots in the door! And the team won--that's always good.

My niece is 19 and in her second year in college. We are such a close knit family, both emotionally and location wise, that I miss her terribly! Haven't seen her since summer and it was fun, fun, fun to be with her. My sis (her mom) and I tend to laugh, sing, act silly, and pull her in the middle of it when we are all together. So, enjoyed each other's company enormously!! We lost our brother when he was 19, and it has drawn our family closer together. We all live in the same small town, which means so very much to our parents, and to us. Also in the same town are my husband's parents and brother's family. His sister and my son just live 30 minutes away! My husband's brother passed away prematurely also, at the age of 39, so we value life and family more than most. And would you believe, my brother & hubby's brother were the same age, went through school together, and were great friends! This is a small community!!! Can't even describe the blessings we feel from having that support system around. My kids have had instant access to both sets of grandparents, and all aunts, uncles, and cousins all their lives!

Whew--that's enough blab about me for now. And it's bedtime--the cat & dog are lying at my feet begging with their big eyes to go to bed! So, friends, let's look forward to a wonderful week full of opportunities!!!

Love your comment on my menopause post! Sweating like an ice cube, indeed. Isn't that just the weirdest feeling? Soaking wet from night sweats, but it's icy cold. Gosh. Makes that song "Natural Woman" just feel so.....full of b/s and lies. Menopause may be natural, but I don't think that's what Carole King had in mind when she wrote that song. lol
Excuse me. I have to run. Got all that chin plucking to do before bed time!

You and your co-worker have flattered my brains out! lol But...just goes to show...we, the menopause afflicted, ARE AN ARMY. There's sooooooooooo many of us out there. I can't believe the murder rate hasn't skyrocketed through the roof, to tell you the truth. How did our ancesters handle menopause without resorting to violence? lol My family is coming close (at times) to discovering just how close I am to committing multiple felonies upon their persons...all because they say something "less than intelligent" during a hot flash. How long does this last anyway? That'll have to be a topic, one of these Mondays....
