Look at me I'm a snoop

Ok so now I feel like being nosey today so I've decided for giggles I'm going to go through the blogs and try to guess who might have me....So here goes...since I said I wanted to go to Florida I'm going to guess for the KVVS that either Lynn or Christine P have me. Now for the DDoS swap.. I'm still lurking through the blogs in hopes of a tidbit about who has luck so far.

Dog Days of Summer News

I received my DDoS partner yesterday now I get to find out all about her. Lots of fun. She's from the western part of the US. So now she is in for a lot of questions and lurking on her blog.

Friday, July 6, 2007

I received my KVVS partner the other day and I'm excited I will tell you she is from the south so that's cool. And the person who has me has notified me so that's cool too. Now I'm just waiting to find out who I have and who has me for the DDS swap. Any day now. Plus Sarah (the one I spoiled) and I won the terrific spoilers for the SIS swap. Just waiting on the prize for that.

My silly child and August

Isn't he cute??? He is getting so excited about our trips next month. We get to go to Rhinelander Wisconsin which is 4 hours north of us. We will be visiting dh's grandma. She's a jubba lady that has a special place in my heart and when something happens to her I think it will be as hard on me as my dh. Then 2 weeks after we get home from there then Drew and I take a bus to O'hare to fly to Texas. This will be not only Drew's first time on a plane but also mine. It will be an experience I'm We get to stay 10 days and then back home we come. Then that weekend is my 10 year class reunion...oh my has it been that long already??? Only wish I could lose more weight before then...oh well. Then school/ work starts for me that following week. I actually have no idea where they will place me. I'm a permanent para-educator but low on the totem pole so could move me around when they decide how many para's they need at each school.
