So, it's been a little more than "a while"....

I have been MIA for months, it seems. Life here in San Antonio keeps me pretty busy - well, I guess I should say WORK, since that is my life! lol I am enjoying the aspect of taking care of Soldiers again, even though it keeps me so busy - it's what matters and it sure makes the time fly!

Sea World has become one of my favorite places since I've arrived in San Antonio. I could sit and watch the Believe show or the Viva show all day long! It makes me wish I'd been more into swimming when I was a kid, as I think it would be amazing to have a "job" working with the whales and dolphins every day. That's got to be something that truly gives new meaning to the word job. It just doesn't seem like it would be work - yes, I know it's a lot of hard work that they put into it, but I can only imagine that it doesn't feel like "work" to them!

I've also been to the River Walk a couple of times and really enjoy it down there. It's a beautiful area with lots to see and do. Baylee and Dee came down for a long weekend in August and we went down there, took a trip up to Gruene, went to a rodeo, spent a day at Sea World, and of course saw every Harley Davidson store in San Antonio, some more than once! It was a great weekend and was nice to be able to share some of the local attractions with them while they were here. Now, I'm hoping to get Baylee down here after Christmas for a week while she's out of school. I told her we'd go back to Sea World and see if Shamu has a santa suit! lol

Also, in September, Mom came down for a few weeks. It was nice having her here for so long so we cold spend some time together. We went to Sea World a few times and I think Mom loves that place as much as I do. We tried to go to the Wildlife Animal Shelter, too, but they were closed each time we tried. We did a lot of visiting and catching up on things at the house, so next time she comes, we'll have to venture out to more of the places we missed this time around.

Well, that's kind of the quick update of the last few months. Oh, I forgot to add that I spent a long weekend in Long Beach, CA the end of July/beginning of August for the Close to My Heart Leadership Conference. That was great to see my friends and get to spend some time with them again. Long Beach area is absolutely GORGEOUS, too - and the weather was SPECTACULAR!!! So many places in CA that I would love to live if only they weren't so darn expensive! lol Maybe I'll win the lotto some day.....if only I played! ;-)

I hope you all have a terrific weekend! I will try not to wait so long between post, I promise. I'm connecting my blogs to Facebook, so maybe that will help - if I do it right, that is! lol

Love and hugs to all,
