We celebrated Chris Jr's 31st birthday yesterday.

Tonka is getting so big.

We just had a small family BBQ this year. I didn't want to throw a big beach bash. So my son just had a small gathering at his house yesterday. It was nice to just show up and not do all the work for a change.

Packing is coming along and things are getting done. So much to do and time is running out. But I will get it all done.

Have an awesome week.

Vacation time is over.

I had a nice and relaxing time. I read, swam, got an even darker sun tan. Ate dinner with my sister and family most nights.
The really fun part was hanging out with my friends daughter and her little guy Braeden. I ended up staying a few more days. There was an extra 2 br 2 ba unit given to us for our use for free. So my friends daughter Nicole, the baby and I had fun.
Thursday morning I took my cameras up to the lighthouse and did a photo shoot for them. The pictures were awesome.

All good things do come to an end though. I have been back to school, gym, riding, packing, getting the AC fixed again in the house. I haven't stopped since I got home.

Today I have been taking advantage of this crappy weather ( tropical system), so I am packing as much as possible.
I have been going to school getting as much time in as possible before my audition in September right after I move.

Lots going on.

I hope everyone had a great week.

Peace, quiet, no packing, sitting on the beach on an uncrowded beach on the gulf of Mexico.
I stay at a really cute boutique hotel near where my sister and family stay. Then I can run away when
I want to escape. It also stays clean, the toilet seat down, etc.
I will be gone Sunday and back Wednesday afternoon.

I am also back to dealer school doing double shifts. I got an audition at a new casino that is
opening this fall. My audition is 9 / 08. So the audition is coming up quickly.

Now throw my move into the mix and are we having fun yet. I am moving on September 1st and 2nd.
So school, pack, gym and try and stay calm, cool and collected and I will do just fine.

Any wonder why I am taking a few days in Sanibel. Let the kids pack, take care of the dogs, grocery shop for themselves for a change. Nothing will get done and I will come home to an empty refrigerator. Can I turn off my phone?

Anyone. Have an awesome week. See you soon with some fun pictures.

I am moving on September 2nd into my new house. Anyone who has moved as much as I have knows what that means.
It's called clean and purge time. If I haven't worn it in a year ( I know they say 6 months, but we only have cold weather for 3 months). If I haven't used it in 6 months, it is gone. I am again downsizing.

Now I will have a garage and I will have no problem filling it up. And it is under air if I want it. He has it blocked off right now. I may use it for storage of clothing, etc. He has shelves on all the walls. The closets are not like my townhouse which has a ton of them. He is putting a garage door opener in for me. And painting. The people in there now did a number with colors. What do people think when they paint such horrid colors. He is spraying the whole place with primer, then starting from scratch in colors I like. Before I get in. Hence the 2nd move in after I get movers over here in the morning. I am cutting it close, but he swears he can spray quickly. I will have a cleaning crew in there on the 1st at 9 am before he flies into town from DC. Bathrooms, kitchen and floors. Then I will tarp the floors, and he can go to town. Timing will be everything. Pray for no hurricanes.

I will also be in school refreshing my dealing skills at least 3 times a week. Auditions for a new casino are in September and I need to get ready so I can get hired. Vacation time is over for sure.

What is everyone else up to this August?
