Hola amigas buenas. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. You know, it used to be that Family Said was a week thing while I was at work and I would just go w/o from Friday night to Monday morning. But no more. I find myself checking in daily even on weekends. There’s just too much good stuff here. I love the little tid bits that come out bit by bit about everyone. Learning about each and everyone of you one interesting crumb at a time.

Thanks so much for all of your dispatcher info. That is extremely helpful. I suppose my next step will be figuring out how to get the training. The are offering some here in Texas this October actually, but I don’t think I can get off work. I’m working on it. I need to get that instruction before applying any where.

My mom is visiting this weekend. Actually, she just came in this afternoon. What is it about a mother’s visit that can be kind of draining? I mean, I love the woman to tears but she can really drive me bonkers. And then I feel bad, like I am taking her for granted. But man, we are just so very different. Anyway…my brother, mom and I and three other friends all went to have some dinner tonight and enjoyed the outdoor weather and the gorgeous moon. The heat is beginning to subside here and it is so wonderful and such a relief. Whew… and it was still 85 today, but there was an actual breeze and it felt more like 75. After a nice dinner and some wine, we all came back to my house and had some of mom’s homemade brownies and ice cream. Yum…caramel brownies, with a special batch for me w/ no pecans.

Got to talk to my FF tonight for quite a while. He is still in Maine right now w/ family. I don’t think he’s ever been as sweet to me over the phone as he was tonight. It is so nice to talk to him when he is more relaxed and not so exhausted. His mom delivered the package I sent and he was happy about that. And he got to show his family the pictures I sent to him, most of them derby pics. He has played golf three times in two days, with more scheduled for tomorrow. The long summer is almost over for us and I can’t begin to tell you how relieved I am about that. We still have a lot of plans to hash out, but the LONG separation is almost over. (And I promise to still write after he is here …;) We’re looking at about another month. Thank heavens I will be really busy, so hopefully time flies. Three day music fest, b’day weekend, championship derby game should all keep me busy these next few weeks. But it would be a LOT harder if it weren’t for you guys…

Roller derby is tomorrow ladies!!!! Semi-finals!!!! Hell Marys v. Hotrod Honeys. I’m just not gonna even think about being nervous. I’m just gonna kick some serious roller derby A*&!! I will write more Monday about our victory. I know all of you will sincerely be pulling for me.

Hope to have a chat soon. And if I haven’t already said it, your stories are hilarious!!! I feel like I have such a good understanding of a meltdown now. Glad I asked. Maybe this board and you all will still be around when I have kiddies, because w/ all of this experience, I sure could learn a lot.

Take care everyone… and your demon spawn,
