Hello I am back

I can't believe how much time has passed! I have been so very busy. I spent a week with my Mom & Dad. I took her to all her treatment appointments, helped her around her house, tried to keep up with the kids schoolwork, and take care of the dog. Needless to say when I got home, I was exhausted. Both physically and emotionally!!
It was hard to see my Mom in so much pain! She is just now starting to feel all the side effects from the radiation and chemo. She hasn't lost her hair yet. She had some broncospams, and took some Ceftin and had an allergic reaction. Dad had to call 911 and get the ambulance to take her to the hospital. Never a dull moment!!

Then the kids had the Local Soapbox Derby race. Trina came in 5th and Dylan came in 8th. Since they didn't win 1st place, if they go to the World Championship's in Akron, Ohio it will be on their points. Dylan is definetely going in his division on points. We have to wait and see is Trina makes it. Right now she is in 10th place and we only send 8 cars. We are hoping that two people ahead of her win their local and move her up. Trina's car recieved a VIP and she received a $10 gift card to Walmart. We ended up giving Dylan $10 because it was Dave's fault his car didn't make it. It was a great race day. Tiring for me!! You can check out photos on Tampa Bay's website. It is called the 2007 Central Florida Local. http://www.tampabaysoapboxderby.com/section_410.cfmLocal.
I took over 500 photos and they were all blurry!! I was so upset.
Dave is going to get me a new camera for my birthday.

This link has the video that aired on Cartoon Network a couple of years ago. It is located in the second row, the one on the right. That is Katrina!!! http://www.tampabaysoapboxderby.com/section_420.cfm

Trina's 14th b-day is Friday. She is having a few friends over for a sleepover. We are going to the opening of "Pirates of the Carribbean" and a pirate themed party. We got some really cool pirate things for everyone. I will post pictures!! I can't believe that my baby is going to be 14!! It seems like I just had her!!

The fires in Georgia have sent the smoke to us. Somedays it is really bad!! We don't even go outside on those days. Hurricane season is just around the corner. I need to start preparing for it. Getting water and canned foods on hand. I need to get gas for the generator. I can't believe the prices of gas. It's $3.03 a gallon here in Central Florida.

Dave went to NY to spend some time with his parents and go on a fishing trip. He caught the biggest fish in the group. He had a wonderful time and I am glad he was able to go without us!!

I guess that's all for now.
I miss all of you and haven't even had time to visit your blogs. I hope to do this soon!!

Love to you all.
