"It has been so long since my last post" .... I HATE when bloggers start with an apology for not keeping current, but here I am. Guilty! Below is something I meant to post last Thanksgiving.
I KNOW! It is January, and the END of January, at that!
Jeez, way to procrastinate ... regardless, this is what was going on last November.
Please take note that I wrote this basking in the Arizona sun, sipping a bloody Mary (with jalapenos) and eating like a Queen ... just three short months ago ... Ahem!
Being away from home and "the grind" lends time to sit, think, and write. Aunt Debbie is taking such great care of us that, alas, Amigas, I can share some highlights of the past months.
Unicycle Rose cruised Blanche in a 5k to raise money for Camp Del Corazon.
Lucas even participated, walking with his friends from Camp. Cutie-Pie and Nephew Benson came along, as the event was held in Hollywood. Camp Del Corazon has blessed my family in so many positive ways. The sting of having congenital heart defects is transformed into a big, fat blessing with that group!
|FYI: Duck tastes greasy and bad. That's my opinion, QUACK!|
I entered a Survivor Football pool for the first time, along with fifty other people. Can you believe that I was one of the last three left, and also a winner? Needless to say, my Sundays have been filled with NFL games and actually caring who wins. I followed stats, read predictions and put my heart and soul into picking my next week's winning team. I never thought I would become one of "those" annoying football people. But I was! The pool just ended last week and I await my windfall in the mail soon. It was so much fun. I'm hooked. Perhaps next year I will head a Survivor Pool of my own?
