Hello, my friends! I am over at Jolie's house while they are at the beach in Alabama for a wedding. I can't help but think that a year and a half ago I sat at this table and started my blog. I have so enjoyed meeting all of you and feel so blessed that I know you. Although most of you I have never met it is so special when I read your posts and comments to me. I don't have a lot of family, but I always feel like you give me a window into your family.
I got back yesterday from Tampa. It was a great trip, but quite tiring. I guess trying to fit lots of work into two days would make anyone tired. I got to see some old friends and we ate some great Greek food. I had salad at the Greek restaurant. The only thing I went a little crazy with was a pretzel. Yes, I ate one of those big soft pretzels. It's not something I plan on doing again for a long time, but it sure tasted good and I got right back on program.
My 81 year old aunt called me about an hour ago and it was so good talking to her. She sounds great and I hope we can go back to Indiana in the summer of 2010. We had so much fun when we were there in 2008 and Avery and Jolie got to see where I grew up. I'm listening to the John Fogerty concert on public tv and I enjoy him. It takes me back to the old days.
I have missed being on the computer and being able to visit your blogs. So now I will close this post and drop by. I wish we could have a big cup of hot tea together. It sounds great about now. Maybe I can get back in my rhythm of posting. I just felt such a need to tell you guys how much you mean to me. I suppose someone that didn't understand blogging would not understand my appreciation,but I do care so much for all of you.
