Man, I’ve Been Busy!

I have been on the go for a while now it seems! It is all good stuff don’t get me wrong. I always think that when the kids go back to school I will get to slow down a little. As usual I am wrong!

My youngest daughter goes to a Catholic School so in order to volunteer they require that you take a class and have a background check done. This year I have finally decided to bite the bullet and go do it. I went and took the class last Thursday night and my background check should come back within a month. Hopefully it will come back all squeaky clean! Just to note: I am a goody two shoes and I have not even had a parking ticket in my lifetime, knock on wood! I thought it was funny because the lady who taught the class used to be one of our High School Spanish teachers. I of course went up and talked to her. She was best friends with my French teacher so I got to find out a lot about her. I thought it was really funny when we had to fill out a survey about the class and we had to put the lady’s name down I put down Mrs. ____ I just couldn’t bring myself to put down her first name! 

Last Friday my husband and I took our boat out for the day. It is great to be able to drop the kids off at school and dart on down to take the boat out.

This is our boat sitting in the drive-way of the guy we bought it from last November.

Last Friday we had quite an adventure on the boat. We saw a dolphin, I had a blast catching Mackerel and we even managed to catch 2 Ribbon Fish. Man are they evil looking!

This is one of the Ribbon Fish we caught.

Here is a another picture of what a Ribbon Fish looks like…see evil looking!

 Sunday we took the boat out again but this time we took the kids with us. The weather has been great here in Texas, very low humidity and temperatures only in the lower 90’s. I caught more mackerel but this time I let both of my daughters reel them in. They only like to fish when the fish are biting! After we got done fishing we went “Cruising” around a place called The Kemah Boardwalk. The girls think they are hot stuff when we go through there.

This week it looks like we will be keeping an eye on Hurricane Ike. I hope we can keep up our good luck and it will go someplace else. I will be keeping my fingers crossed!

To top off my weekend my youngest daughter told me this: “Mom, I just noticed your boobs are finally bigger than your stomach!” Man you gotta love kids!
