While awaiting the arrival of our furniture that was en-route via St. Petersburg, we spent a couple of days in Galveston. Galveston is Texas version of happiest place on earth, and approx 25 minute drive from Houston. There are miles of sandy white skinny beaches (read into that however you want), and lots of restaurants to entertain those of us who are not. There is also cruise ships, old towns, museums, and sharks in the free as well as captivity. Well, before we jumped in the gulf of Mexico as live bait, we decided to take a closer look at our predators. Moody Gardens is a fun place to check out a tropical rainforest, and entertaining fish tanks. For dinner we went to RainForest Cafe', which is located on the beachwalk in Galveston. For those who would like to visit us (or if you want to come unbeknown), make Galveston a must see on your trip.

Jessicas New Friend...

Jessica has spent much time in the pool. Our apartment complex does not have a lot of children. However, Morgan happens to be Jessicas age, and they will both start kindergarten at the same school.
By the way, the previous picture was taken on the 4th of July. It was raining, and we went to the Astrodome, where the worlds largest indoor carneval was hosted.

Still alive and well

Things are going wonderful!! I did an official Cowgirl Up!! My furniture is here finaly!!!
I am working at LA Fitness and a private pilates studio and LA is considering me for the aerobics coordinator position. That means that I would not only get paid for each class but I would also get a salary. Yeah me!!! clap clap clap
Right now I teach 7 classes a week. But I have to take a bunch too to qualify to be a coordinator I will be attending or teaching 17 classes a week holy crap that is a lot of sweat.
Eric and Jessica spend a lot of time at the pool and now it looks like Eric going to get job that would be fun
I will post pictures soon

Houston we have landed

In case you were wondering I may never quit using NASA terms. Heck I LIVE in houston.
Well after a long and prblem filled flight we made it. I am trying to be totally up beat and happy but I am camping in my apartment.
Our stuff hasn't even left new jersey yet. So it is paper everything no dressers and that is a little rough.
To add insult to injury Jessicas tooth started to hurt last night meaning we only have a day or two to qualify for state aid and get her to a dentist. We aren't holding our breath.
I have to wonder with all of the complications did we choose the wrong place to move too. Please I need to have friendly advice.
This my friends is me falling apart.

Houston prepare for an invasion

Jessica and I are flying out tomorow. We leave at 8 am to get to the airport for our 1:34pm flight. So the move will finally begin!!

Goodbye Alley

If you read my previous posts you know that Alley wasn't doing very well here. She continued to throw up no matter what I tried. She was happy outside though, in the apartment she was scared a lot, but she was a different cat outside. She loved it when she wasn't sick. She was loosing her hair and I just couldn't make her stay any longer for my sake. So I took her down to the vet to see what they thought and that is when I put her down. I mean I am the one that held her and preped her (I used to work for the vet). I couldn't do the shot I was an emotional wreck as it was.
Probly the hardest thing I have had to do in a long time. I have never had to make the call I always went a long when my parents did.
