In a small, really small town in NE Fla, 44 years ago this morning, my mother was having the time of her life (yeah, right). Today is my birthday. And I'm having a ball. DH got me a blackberry for my birthday. Now, I won't say that I'm an idiot, but I'm not sure I have the vocabulary to operate this particular piece of technology. He wants me to Ping something. Uh, not allowed to do that in public, am I?
Anyway, I'm trying to get my Ping on, so you all keep your fingers crossed.

My neice, my SIL, and my neice's little girl came for an overnight visit yesterday. I haven't seen the little girl in about two months. Talk about growing, my stars.
She is such a sports model. And then, she opened her mouth and spoke. I almost freaked out. (She wasn't talking last time I saw her). Clear as a bell, too. I cannot begin to tell you what joy this little one brought to my heart.
Aunt Shelley (me) took her out on a ride to see the cows. A big hit, by the way. And she helped me drive the kubota. And we saw tractors and hay barns, and all sorts of grasshoppers, oh my.
What a lovely girl, and what a lovely visit.

Just kidding. It has been a roller coaster around here for the past several weeks. And I just realized that I haven't posted since Saturday. Oh well, what's a mother to do?
I know this sounds crazy, but my children's social schedule is keeping me hopping. It's summer for goodness sake. Aren't I supposed to be sleeping late EVERY day. Not the best four out of seven?
Anyway, I hope you all had a great 4th. Back to my taxi schedule now.

In this techno-savvy world, I have to admit that using new devices and services is not always the easiest thing for me. I have to have my children school me in the use of the DVD player and such. Really, I just don't have the time or the spare brain cells to take this stuff on by myself. Once, I learn a new machine or skill or application, I can ride like the wind with it. That being said.......
I am learning to text on my cell phone. It is a strange and foreign concept to me. And one that I think is redundant. Why take all that time to text, when you can simply dial and talk about it? That's the question. In case you hadn't figured it out, I'm a talker, a communicator. Someone who apparently loves to hear their own voice, cause I have to say, this texting thing is not coming easy to me.
In fact, it goes against the grain of everything all my typing and office management and VOE instructors ever taught me. Fingers on the home row keys, girls. ASDF JKL:. Use correct form and do not look at your keys. All those many years of training and work ethic......down the tubes. All the years that it took me to be able to type 85 words per minute......not important. Gone. Now, I'm hunting and pecking with my THUMBS. Can you believe that? I can hardly stand it. Every time I text I have a montage of old typing and business education teachers mumbling in my ears. It's really a sad thing to see. Me typing with my thumbs talking to old women who really aren't there anymore. I should be on TV I think.
So, with that all important information conveyed to you. I bid you adieu and hope you have a great rest of the week.
