Another trip coming up...

Once again, we are in the final stages of preparing for yet, another fun family trip. This time, to Biloxi, Ms. I mentioned in an earlier post what the main reason for this trip is for. We hope Hubby gets this eye surgery. I will let you know upon our return. We will be leaving out on July 26th and we will return on August 6th. Nearly two weeks out of town. I am actually looking forward to another family trip. Even tho this is not a vacation, we do plan on making the most of it and doing some fun things while there. A day or two or more at the beach comes to mind....oh and casinos. Lol....as well as a day at a horse ranch, which was originally intended soley for our Daugther's entertainment, but let's face it, I love horses too! Not much going on this week, aside from prepping for this trip. I need to pack up, tidy my home, (since I NEVER leave out on trips with an untidy place to come home to) wash the dogs, go to a friend's pool party Saturday and run quite a few errands that need to be ran this week for various reasons. Busy, but not too busy. Still time for visiting with friends and laying out to catch a tan before heading to the Biloxi beach.... Something I never really understood, but I seem to have adopted the habit that many women are guilty of: tanning before going on trips and vacations where beaches are. I guess we just want to blend in better with the tan, sun kissed people.
A total change of subject:
Anyone who is interested in the new Harry Potter movie, but has yet to see it: It was awesome!!! Sad, but awesome. Go see it, it is worth the money, but make sure to take that bathroom break before the movie starts, as it is two and a half hours long. Oh and best not to buy that extra large drink...
I hope you all are having a good week so far. Hugs and God bless!

Well, it's been a while...

I guess I really have been busy! Today was pretty unproductive and maybe that's why I actually thought to stop in and post something, since nothing else was going on. Fourth of July was awesome! I need to post pics, but it's nothing out of the ordinary. Just fireworks and such and I'm being lazy right now and don't want to take the time to exercise my muscles and get off my hind end and walk the 6 feet to the table where the camera is. It's midnight, so I guess my body's in sleep mode. Lol...
We are leaving in a couple weeks for Biloxi, Mississippi. I love spelling out the whole state name...It's got so many S's! Hubby is a candidate for some form of lazer eye surgery to improve his eye sight. He's pretty much legally blind. And that's where we are a bit nervous. Apparently, your eyes can be too bad for them to want to fix them. There is NO guarantee he will get this surgery. We are basically going all the way there on a "maybe". Now, I know most of you are thinking why the heck would we spend the money to go all the way up there and possibly, not even get the surgery he needs. Well, at least he will know for sure and never have the "what if" in the back of his mind....we are going to make the best of this trip and visit the beach and go horse back riding one day and visit the Casino's....I'm not a gambler, but hey, is it bad to plan on losing a few bucks? If I don't gamble and just plan on tossing X amount of my money away, I figure, if I do actually win some extra money, then it will be a nice surprise. Anyways, there isn't a whole lot new going on. It is indeed the lazy days of summer. I do love sometimes, when things settle down a bit and nothing crazy is going on and we just go with the flow.....We still have till September 2nd till school starts for my Daughter. She and I both, while enjoying summer break, are excited about this year. The curriculum has doubled, going into third grade. Apparently, A Beka Academy wants the children to be ready for college come third grade. Lol....I love A Beka Academy. It is, in my opinion, THE BEST Christian homeschool program for my Daughter. It is perfectly suited for her, as if they tailored it just for her needs. It's awesome and we are lucky that she benifiets so greatly from this particular homeschool program. I can schedule the lessons to her and my liking. We decided to try something different this year. Block scheduling. Since the curriculum has nearly doubled, we feel this would work out great. I had block scheduling in HS and LOVED it! I wasn't burned out on subjects like I was before. If you don't know what block scheduling is, it's where the curriculum is basically split up into alternating days, instead of all the subjects done all together every single day. Daughter is taking the standardized test at the end of this year and I am so curious to see where she lies academically. I know her strongest subject is Arithmatic, which she is a wiz at and her weakest is spelling....which I was the opposite back in school. So funny. I wish she took the test at the end of last year, but we will have to wait and be patient.....Anyways, enough of that. I am sitting her listening to my music and I'm starting to get sleepy. I am gonna try to catch up on a recorded tv episode and then hit the pillow. I hope you all are doing well and God bless....
