Work today

I had today off and work tomorrow at 9am and Sunday at 1:30PM. But I got a call from my boss lady this morning at 8 asking me if I could find a sitter and come in tonight. I told her I would see what I could do and sure enough I found a sitter that came to the house to keep the kids. So I went to work. I worked 1:30pm - close (11:00) clocked out at 11:30pm.

I am just a waitress in a resturant that has a bar connected to it but still the same business. Well tonight we had no bartender at first and the only waitress for the bar was a minor so she wasn't allowed behind the bar. I ended up playing Bartender for about 3 hours tonight it was crazy. I was bartender in the bar and waitress in the resturant. It was crazy. Finally the bar boss lady came back to work and I was relieved. She said I did a really good job. I was shocked at that considering I have never been a bartender till tonight. I have served drinks and made them at my house but never in public. I was proud of myself I learned how to draw a pitcher of beer from tap and get cold mugs from tap and they weren't full of foam. So I had a crazy but fun and learning experience night.

Just wanted to share.

Good Night I have to get up at be at work by 8am.

Video took while on vacay

If you look close at the two videos you will see Diving Pelicans it was awesome to watch there were so many of them. There were tons of pelicans further down the road but this was just the first place we were able to pull over and park to watch them so we only got a few of them. I hope you enjoy watching the videos they are the greatest videos but I took them so I thought I would share.

Pix from Vacay

First two pix Museum of Fine arts Houston Texas.
The hall of illusion. That is the family walking back to the end of the hall we started at. When inside the hall it looked like the walls were right at the edge of the black walk way but in actuality there was a sever inch drop down from the floor to the side and I think the lady said sever feet to the edge. It was awesome in person.

As everyone walked out and I was going to get a pick of just Rach it turned red on me it was really weird. Still liked the purple better.


Next seven pix are in Galveston Texas.
The Sand castle Rach and I made.
You can tell it has been a really long time since either of us had built a sand castle.

Rach with our sand castle.

Me with the sand castle. Rach took my pic.

Frankie and Andrea with the boogie boards they got to play with thanks to Rach.
She is also the one with all the sand toys LOL.

Andrea with the boogie board she wanted to use but the wrist strap was a homemade one since the original broke YEARS ago.

The slide that the kids and Rach and I went down. It was awesome once you got done climbing the flimsy a** stairs to the top. I think it was a great accomplishment since I am afraid of heights. It was so much fun we all did it twice. :-)

This is a pic of the house that my brother and I stayed in for the couple or few years in the summer when my brothers dad owned it and lived in Galveston. It didn't look so run down when we were growing up.


Some cafetria style breakfast place we ate at our last morning in Houston. It was pretty good.
This was the resturant we ate breakfast at Friday morning before heading home. I pretty much took this so Rach could see the bears (Stuffed :-( we got to see.

This is just the bears and a wort hog or havelina not sure which one.

I just thought this was funny az once I was told what it was.

Can anyone guess?

And FINALLY for the rest of the story.

Well we are back home. I have to work at 9am in the morning that isn't too bad, even though I just feel like I want to sit around the house and do nothing now that we are home.

Here were our endeavors on our vacation.

Got to Houston on Tuesday ate dinner and slept.

Wed. Picked my Best friend Rachel up and went to the History Museum did the butterfly habitat that is there and after we were going to leave. Well it was raining when we got out of the butterfly life house. So being the type of person I am when I have a partner in crime that isn't 8 or younger I tell my dh that He and the kids could stay there and wait for Rachel and I to come back with car. We will make a run for it in the rain. He said okay since he messed up his ankle and it was killing him. So we take off out the doors we came in since the Car was 3 blocks away from the actual museum. I put my glasses hanging on the front of my shirt and take off running. Well around block 2 is where I think I lost my glasses but not sure at all could have been any of the blocks we took. Which we took 4 since we got temporarily misplaced for a block. Didn't realize it till we were at the ground floor of the parking garage. So we go to the car and I tell Rach since I can't drive anyway that she goes and gets my family and tells dh what and where I am and that I am going back the way we came. So I head back in he rain and she heads for my family. Dh helped look and so did Rach I walked my steps 4 full times and of course gave I think decent distance for the gale force winds we also ran through talked to the museum Lost & Found and they don't have them and finally and hour and half later dh said that is enough it is time to go they were tired of doing circles around us while we were looking. So I have not glasses and as I mention in the previous post no spares. I wasn't to upset about it considering how I am. I am very proud of myself for that.

Got a motel and settled and then went for dinner then back to room. Rach and I took off to her house and got the stuff she needed for the next days endeavors.

Thursday. BEACH
Went to Stuart Beach in Galveston. Got there at 1:30pm. Rach brought boogie boards for all of us to play with and LOTS and LOTS of sand toys. I played in the sand with Rach for about an hour or hour and a half and the kids played in the sand for about 45 min. We played in the water for hours. I loved it the kids loved it and so did DH and BESTIE. We showered at the pavilion and leaft at 6pm. Went and fond the house that my brother and I used to stay at for the few summers my brothers dad lived in Galveston. Then left Galveston.

Headed for Kimah and went to Kimah Boardwalk. We looked around and watched the kids have fun in the water shooting from the ground to the beat of the live music. Then went to the VERY FIRST Joe's Crab Shack. Us Grown up love crabs. Rach gave me crabs and so did dh on this trip LOL. Didn't get to ride any of the attractions due to they close everything down at 10pm and we didn't finish eating till about 10:30pm. It happens but we know how to do Beach day next time so we have time for Kimah. All of us girls got sun burnt. A (daughter) her face and slightly on her back. Rach upper back and chest and face and arms. Me same as bestie but worse. I did get the worse burn of us all. DH and F (son) just got darker brown.

Took Rach home at midnight and went back to room.

HAD A WONDERFUL DAY FOR THE SECOND TIME.

We had so much fun those two days makes me want to go back in a week. lol

Today we met up with DH's friend and wife and went to breakfast then to Whole Foods (Health and Organic Grocery store for those who didn't know). And then said Bye see you next time. Headed home stopped in SA to eat super and got home at 8:30pm. Everyone else is already in bed and I should be also since I have to work and am tired and still exhausted from the beach yesterday. But by the time we all got back to the room on those night I was so tired I didn't even touch the computer so I wanted to update everyone and show what pix and videos I took while we were out and about.

I will post the pix tomorrow after work I am really sleepy But I will give briefs with the pix on who and where.

Good Night and Blessings to everyone and their endeavors.

Todays Adventures.

Well as I said we made it in yesterday about 3pm. Today we went to the museum and saw the Terra Cotta Solders. I broke the rules and used my phone to take ONE pick of some of the ones there so that I could show a friend that asked me to PLEASE take pix for them. :-) I will post it later on when I am able to get it from my phone. There is SO SO SO much more to come which I will do later tonight It was a blast even though I lost the ONLY pair of glasses I own.

Turtles

Not sure who's this one is. A's or F's
This one is Willow. (Mine)

We have baby Turtles. I got the kids and myself baby turtles a week ago. I am not to turtle savvy so if any of u know anything about baby turtles it would be greatly appreciated. I am not sure what kind of baby turtles they are but I did take pix I am sure it won't help, but I can give you a brief of when we first got them from the lady on the side of the road.

Okay when we bought the baby's the lady had them and TONS more in a plastic tub with water. When she handed us the little aquariums she added about a inch of water in the green one and about a inch and a half in the orange. The orange one has two baby's and the green one just one and there where already some rock pebble in the bottom of the aquariums. So I assume they are some kind of water baby turtle. Well I did have the kids find something to add to their aquariums when we got home so that the baby's weren't constantly stretching their heads to get out of water. Well low and behold all they could find that was big enough AND small enough were these two large oyster shells. They said they were in the side yard so I washed them very well and we added them to the aquariums.

Well the worry now is that maybe they need more dry land? Not quite sure. This lady told us nothing other than feed them one pellet of turtle food a day per baby. Well the last two days they didn't eat their food. So last night when I was cleaning their aquariums I let them stay out longer to dry up some and then when putting the shells back in their homes I put some of the rock stuff in a corner to push up the shells more out of the water so that they would have a spot to get completely out of the water. Today they did eat! The two in the orange which is mine and A's they take turns sitting on top of each other on top of the dry part of the shell. I am looking for anyone that can help me make sure we keep the baby's healthy. I am in the process of seeing if I can acquire at least a 5 gallon tank so that we can put them all three together. I think F's baby is sad cause he is all by himself. And no I don't know if they are boys or girls or what. I just told the kids to name them. F's is named Chowder and A's is Baby and Mine is Willow.

This is them in the make shift cage so I don't loose them while they are out of their homes.
This is a close up of them next to their make shift barrier (13.2 ounce dog food cans)

The AMA on Obama's Heatlh Care Plan.

I thought this was funny az and had to share. I hope you get a kick out of the irony also.

The American Medical Association has weighed in on the new health care plan being developed by the Obama Team.

The Allergists voted to scratch it, but the Dermatologists
advised not to make any rash moves.

The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.

The Obstetricians felt they were all laboring under a
misconception.

Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.

Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the
Pediatricians said, 'Oh, grow up!'

The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it.

Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing.

The Internists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter."

The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.

The Anesthesiologists thought the idea was a gas, and the Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.

In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes in Washington .

Well today was the last day.

Well today was the last day of work two weeks. When I go back it will be just on weekends till school starts. They say they are going to put me back on the schedule during the week once school starts back up. We will have to wait and see that one. I no longer work as my mil anymore either. Friday was my last day for that. So we are going to see how things work out. School starts back up here on the 24th.
