It's C - O - O - L - E - R

Hey there,
As you may is just around the corner and it is the only act around that puts the Olympics in 2nd place of priority if you have a school age child!!! So, in light of that, my weekly nuturing has been spent in soothing a lot of disgruntled paretns, teachers, etc. on issues that just aren't working out to their best advantaged!!

This means that there has been no time to finish authoring anything! Drats! and wouldn't you know that the ideas continue to flow like crazy! If you haven't made the connection yet, the DD represents my pen name which has become a reality for future works. Now, what'd you think?

The Dallas weather has eased to cooler, -100, becomes quite special for walking, sitting, lounging, gardening, goofing around, grilling or you name it...just getting to the outside world. Try on 69 degrees at commute to work time this am.

Here's hoping you have followed the Facebook account to this blog to get a great big Dallas welcome! If you're a writer, check out the DFWWW web site for the latest info on one of the larger writers' group in the DFW Metroplex.

As an update on all the grans, school bells are ringing for almost everyone: Samantha and Michael began school in Alvin ISD, Alvin, Texas, and I hope to post one of their school pictures soon.....they enter the 4th and 1st grades ......Erika and Emily now celebrate some successful weeks getting settled in San Paulo, Brazil and in second grade with their 'very nice' new teacher, new friends, new house, and new member in their household, a boxer called Roxy; Nilson returns to his school as a robust 4 years old, and Charlie goes too this year now that he's two. 2008 holds many exciting adventures for all the members of the troop.
Here I am, back to counting down to the end of triple digit heat in Texas, ta anxiously awaiting the final 10 hour workday and quickly changing gears from 17 marvelous days at home sleeping in and fooling around with hubby & the six cutest sweetest grans ever to exist . We had glorius days filled with great simplicity... fooling around the pool, enjoying PB&J'S and the best that Veggie Tales and Disney have to offer...Check out this "At Gramdma Jeannie's .....Piti and Papi's Poolside Drama" at the meantime, gone forever, it seems, tis that day of sleeping leisurely until hmmm o'clock and just lounging away the day. Our evening finale spent in luxgurious quality adult time scarfing down guiltless Ben & Jerry's while feasting eyes and ears on the best brand of Kendall's ripped nightly selections. Truly a vacation to remember!! This great joy fills our hearts as does bittersweetness of bidding a temporary adieu as families disbursed themselves, Momma Angie recapturing Samantha and Michael off to Alvin and Kaki, Erika and Emily migrating to Sao Paulo for a renewing of the Brazilian flavor. Our savers of the day, Neilson, Charlie and Thomas and Raquel are literally just around our west we still have the good fortune of daily grans-fixes.
