To Ballet or not to ballet

I went by a ballet studio last week to get info regarding classes for Little. I was so pumped, they have a class starting in August. This is a small class and in September the class will have almost double the amount of students. What a perfect transition for her to learn some of the basics of the class.

I told my mom all about it. This is a real ballet studio: specific uniform, must be bought at a certain store, the girls must have their hair pulled back, slick, in a bun! What fun!

I mention it to hubby. Oh HE%& no, that's too "girlie!" She doesn't need that!

OMG!! TOO GIRLIE!!! Whatever. So, we've been having a "discussion" about this for a week now: football players take ballet, it is good foundation for any other sport, Mia Hamm was in ballet as a young girl, if she doesn't like it we pull her out b/c we pay tuition by the month......you get the picture. So then I throw out: if we have a son, he can't play football b/c it is too "boyie", right? Stumped him, he was almost speechless and then came back with "that's different." Nope, it's not....but I think I made headway! I'll keep you posted on my progress!!!

On the MAP!!

I am SOOO very excited b/c we have a Thai restaurant in town. To some folks, that might not be a big deal, but to me this is HUGE!!!!

I went by last week and they were closed: Grand Opening on Monday, July 20th!!! So, guess where I went to lunch on Monday??? You got it! I got it to go. The place was PACKED, took a little long for my order, but it was worth the wait!!! I will be going back there OFTEN!!!!

If you've never had Thai food, it isn't Chinese. It is much lighter, more noodles and veggies. But OHHHHH so TASTY!!!!

Come and visit and we'll go eat there!

Did you ever wonder.....

....why it is mainly men who find it necessary to run down a street with bulls racing after them in Spain? I'd love to go to Spain, but not to run with the bulls! There are a few women, but over 90% of the participants are men. Go figure!

Are we truly surprised

I was reading my Reader's Digest the other day and came across a small tidbit of information, that made me really wonder why we are surprised at the finacial situation our country is in, especially considering who we (I use this term loosely) elected for office! The mini-article was about folks that call 911 for their "emergency."

Both people called 911. Why? The first one b/c the drive thru didn't have LEMONAID!!! The second one was b/c the person couldn't get through to vote on their favorite person on the reality game show they were watching.

REALLY, REALLY,....and we are SURPRISED at the state of our nation? I think there should be a test, nothing that complex, that you have to take prior to being given the right to vote. Why? Because if you think that either one of these situations even REMOTELY seem like an emergency, you shouldn' t be able to vote. We really all need to pray a whole, whole lot!

Neighbor Update

So, I did some research, and as I stated, we don't have a HOA, but there are deed restrictions. So, IF someone wanted to get technical, we aren't to have a boat in the drive...but neither is anyone else to have a boat, a camper, an 18 wheeler (regardless if just for a few hours), work vehicles, etc......there is a "group" that is comprised of lawyers by the original developer....but unless they do something....ain't nothing gonna be done!

My swim parents have been more than accomodating about parking and not walking through the anyone's yard but mine. So, we'll see what happens.

Blogging

I caught the tail end of Oprah yesterday and it was about moms and confessions they made about parenthood (more on that later). Anyway, there is a mom in Utah that has a blog that makes over $40,000/month. on advertising from her blog! OMG, how in the world? She has this HUGE following and she and her husband don't work b/c she obviously makes so much money from her blog.

Haven't had a chance to visit it...but I want to see it just to see what' the hype is all about....wow, I just can't imagine. I'll visit it in the next few days, you go too and let's chat!

Happy 4th!!!

I want to wish you all a happy and relazing 4th of July.

We need to all take a moment and thank our veterans and current service members and their families for all of the sacrifices they continue to make so that we can continue to have days, weekends like this with all of our families and friends.

I thank GOD for our wonderful country that we live in and I pray for all service members and all those in government offices that make huge decisions for all of us!

God bless you all!!!
