This and That

So I haven't posted in ages and decided it was time. The weather here finally turned warmer so I have been out enjoying the sun and time spent with family and friends. I love the warm weather and this year, winter seemed a lot longer than usual. The next few weeks seem to be filling up quickly. Big T and I are going to see "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" next week. I am looking forward to that. A few of my former college professors are retiring or moving on from West Libert, so there are dinners to go to for them. Adam, Brandon, and I are headed to Columbus in a few weeks for a Brooks and Dunn/Alan Jackson concert with our friends Peggy and Roger. Peggy's little sister Sandy has her prom on May 5th and graduates later in the month. I still can't believe that one. Peggy and Sandy lost their mom several years ago, when Peggy isnt able to make it home from Columbus I play the role of surrogate big sister to Sandy. I've helped her get ready, take pictures, saw her off to most of Homecoming and Prom dances of her high school years. I first met Sandy when she was an 11 year old and it feels like she shouldnt be old enough to graduate from high school! Still havent figured out how that is possible, especially since I dont get any older! LOL.

I've also decided that it was high time I started reading again. I love to read, always have, but sometimes I get into these moods where I just can't seem to finish anything I pick up. Last summer I went on a kick and read a bunch of JD Robb books. A few weeks ago, I decided to start re-reading some of the classics that I haven't touched since high school or college. Chances are pretty good that if I had to read it in college, I read the beginning, the end, a few chapers in the middle, and then read some synopsis online. (I know horrible AND I was an English major..LOL) I just finished To Kill A Mockingbird. Right now I am reading Memoirs of a Geisha, I have read parts of it before but never the entire thing. I've also never seen the movie so I am looking forward to finishing the book and then watching that. I started The Fountainhead, but just couldnt get into I am saving that one for another day. If you know of any good books suggestions pass them along my way!

I received this in an email, it made me smile and thought I would share:

I wish for you a day of ordinary miracles--
A fresh pot of coffee you didnt make yourself.
An unexpected phone call from an old friend.
Green traffic lights on your way to work or shop.
I wish for a day of little things to rejoice in--
The fastest line at the grocery store.
A good sing along song on the radio.
Your keys right where you look.
I wish you a day of happiness and perfections--
Little bite-sized pieces of perfection that give you the funny feeling that the Lord is smiling down on your, holding you so gently because you are someone special and rare. I wish for you a day of Peace, Happiness, and Joy.
