Summer = Heat = Hot

I love the coast.  I love the ocean.  I would love to own a beach house somewhere. Yet, I can only imagine how hot it gets this time of year, especially when you factor in humidity, on the coast.  Which is part of the reasoning behind my desire to visit there, and not necessarily live there, full time.  However, for those of you who need it, Raleigh AC Repair (I thought it may come in handy this time of year).


My life has been crazy busy lately.  I'm studying and working and we moved to another state and on and on and on. 

Hopefully I'll be back to relevant posting by August.  In the meantime, don't go anywhere!

Summer Fun

If my kids were younger, and I was looking for these swing sets in chesapeake va I would totally buy one.  But my kids are teenagers now and they don’t find the same things pleasurable as they did when they were younger.  I remember when a day outside was great fun and something to look forward too.  Now they consider going outside a chore and looking forward to dinner, as long as they are not the ones cooking it.

I really do want to learn ballet

I have been looking for new ways to lose this last 20 pounds.  I like dancing, but I don’t have time, literally, to go to a dance class.  I’m working and studying all day and night, night and day.  I was however looking into ballet lessons at this dance studio because I know you can lose a lot of weight, tone your body like a boss and still have fun.  But, I just don’t know if I can find the time.  *sigh*

Playing beautiful music

Call me silly, but I like the music that comes from kazoos because it makes me smile. It reminds me of fun things, like being a kid and playing your kazoo and wow didn’t we all think we were going to grow up and play in the orchestra! I think that kazoos may be the first instrument children learn to play in school, at least that is how it was when I was growing up. Kazoos and recorders. The good old days.

DVDs and stuff

I have been looking for a cheap ez dupe single target dvd duplicator at musicians friend because I’d like to have a copy of my DVDs so that my kids don’t ruin the originals. The problem is that I don’t know if copying them gives me the option of using the title menu and skipping through chapters, etc. Back in the day copying a DVD required special software and one lost the ability to skip chapters, etc. It was basically put the movie in and watch the whole thing. Period. End of story.

My sister is celebrating her 10th wedding anniversary in July and my other sisters came to me with the idea of throwing a large party. I am always in for a party, but I don’t want to be the one stuck doing things like changing the CDs and urging people to get out and dance so I started looking online for ideas and I came across this website which was quite helpful except for the fact that the DJ is in South Carolina, which is just a bit of a drive from northern California, where our party will be held. So, the search continues.
