Summer Fixer Upper

I've done a little tweaking and updating here at the blog. I'm a bit inspired by Lynn at, and if all is right in the world, you should see a link to the right for her blog. She's done a very nice facelift on her blog.

I've added a couple of things, deleted a couple of things, and will be adding a link to my new website soon. I've got a new story to share, and I didn't want to "blog" it, so it's going to get it's own page. This is along with the Summer soap that I've mentioned. That's coming along nicely too, and I have a first rough draft that will be posted this week.

Here's the summary. Boy- Chad, less popular friend, always seems to be the underdog, always "cleaning up" after his friend. This story is about Chad cleaning up one of the biggest messes and learning a lot about himself in the process.

What do you think? Interested?? I'll be looking forward to feedback.

I don't know if I've blogged this before, but I love this site. I can't realy describe it, but it's basically the paparazzi meets celebrity mom's meets blogging. Okay, that's not a great description. Do not go check it out if you are even a little bit easily offended. If you are a tough ol' bird like me....what are you waiting for?????

Update day

It's update day. I'm running a check of all the blogs and seeing what needs an update (all of them) The summer of truth blog will be going live in the next few days. Abbi and Derek's stories will be updated and I have a few photos for the other one.

Vacation was fantastic.

There's a picture of the view of "our" lake included in this blog. Weather was great but the water was cold. Fishing was okay overall. Lyric outfished Fisher 7 to 1 the only day she fished. Baby was in the lake everyday and the weather was only like 60 degrees. It was COOOOLLLLLDDDDDD. :-)

Okay, off to update some more blogs.

run one is done

Here's the flier, poster, promo information for Lyric's play. The first run was last week and boy, are we glad to be done with it. She did seven shows in 6 days. Of course, the day that they did 2 shows was very humid, hot, muggy, sticky, just icky. And did I mention the stage is outside?? The stage itself is actually air conditioned for the actors, but she said that she couldn't even feel it. It's a "World Premier" as this play is brand new. It was written by "The Mikes" who have been active in theater for YEARS.
Anyway, she has a bit of a break until July 6, which is great. School's out now, too. so she can have some down time. Sleep in. Do some chores around the house for me. (LOL)

opening night and closing the year

The school year is almost over. Three more days of school. Guess what the girls are doing?? A whole lot of nothing. Lockers were cleaned out last week. Desks were emptied. Lyric has had homework the past couple of days, but I'm not sure what class.

Tonight is preview night and tomorrow is Lyric's Starlight Debut. She's pretty blase about it. I'm excited for her. She's definitely not nervous, which is great. I'll be sure to let you know how she does. Since this is the first time this play hase been perfomed, I'm looking forward to seeing it. She said it's mostly told through songs (similar to Joseph and the Amazing Technocolor Dreamcoat) and there are like 50 songs. Good thing the girl likes to sing. LOL
