Vacation is almost here!

Yeah! Tomorrow we leave for vacation. I'm so excited. This is the first time I have ever been on my own vacation. Every other time, me and the kids were tagging along with the family. It feels good to be on this side of financial struggle. Ryan is excited... Olivia is excited... Julius is still opposed to anything that may resemble fun. It's like that cruise ship commerical. He'll have fun in spite of himself. Ok... so I have to share. Ryan bought himself a cowboy hat! Hee, Hee, Hee! It will look stunning with his shiny basketball shorts. See ya'll in a week!

My Ticket to Hell

Wrath:Very Low
Envy:Very Low
Lust:Very Low
Pride:Very Low

Take the Seven Deadly Sins Quiz

So I took this quiz online. Maybe I thought I'd find out what I'm going to hell for, although this is by no means an exhaustive list, I'm sure. While I'm not surprised by sloth, the greed did catch me off guard. I guess it's something I'll have to work on.

New Toys!

I have my new laptop! The unexpected downer is I'm finding myself feeling too old to learn new technology and got very frustrated. I had to back up, remind myself how young I am and start again.
Plans for vacations would be coming along well except Julius doesn't want to go to Florida! Elvin doesn't have a sitter, so they "have" to come with me to the Sunshine State. I don't understand my son's aversion to anything outdoors. I was never an active girl, but I'd never scowl at the chance to play at the beach for a week! Oh well, once again I must force my son to have fun, and I'm sure he will. Olivia is getting very excited, but she said she would be either way. I'm just afraid this is my last chance at a family vacation before they become teenagers and completely unpleasant to be around. I'm also afraid of how my haircolor will go with a tan or what I look like in a bathing suit, but such is life.
