Sammer's Apartment

Well... even though I was against Samantha moving into her own apartment so soon... I have to say that I just love the place that she and Sara picked out. Austin Ranch, it's perfect for two cute young girls. Sam is really trying hard to make it work... she's working two jobs and putting in lots of hours. She worked at the pool all day yesterday and then went straight to Chili's to work as a hostess last night... she worked 14 hours... I'm proud of her.

I went over to her place tonight to take her some clean laundry and some stuff that I had been collecting and buying for her. I bought her a nice set of tea/juice glasses (24 total) and a kitchen rug and a big 4 wick candle for her bathroom. I also got her some bamboo placemats from Target. She and Sara both seem to be into the 'nature' theme... browns/greens/yellows for the kitchen-living areas. She and I are definitely different when it comes to taste in stuff.

I took her out to dinner at Third Base because Sara is working there now and she needed a ride home tonight. Her car is broke down, poor thing.

Well, I am exhausted, so I'm off to bed now. All in all, it was a good day.

A Day with Julia

Well, I devoted all day Monday to Julia. She will be leaving us on Friday and I think we are all (including her) are very sad about that. She and I took Memaw out to Mattitos for lunch, then Julia & I met Glenn at Costco for some shopping. Glenn is so silly, he makes her laugh all the time (he makes me laugh too). Then Julia and I went to Central Market to get some special ingredients for supper. She requested that we make my famous Skinner Meatball Minestrone soup... yum! We had fun. We tasted many things at Central Market... some we liked and some not so much! LOL! But it was fun. We then went to Walmart to get the rest of our ingredients at a more reasonable price. Dinner was very very late tonight because we spent so much time shopping, but it was worth it. We served the soup in these big bread bowls that we bought at Central Market, they were sooo good! And we watched the movie, "Music and Lyrics" with Sara, Memaw and Matt.

Week gone by...

Okay... it's Monday morning. Wow, how did that week go by so fast? Well, Mom, Marianne and I spent Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday cropping at a great new place called Creative Cottage. It was wonderful! Cheri managed to join us on Tuesday evening, spend the night and cropped all day on Wednesday. She even finished a page! Marianne finished 30 pages (she's out of control!) and I actually finished 7 pages. But I also worked in Sam's graduation book and made about 12 baby tags for Parkland Hospital.

Thursday & Friday were spent catching up on housework. Thursday was the last day of school for Matt, so he had Seth spend the night both Thursday & Friday night. We (Memaw, Matt, Seth, Donna & I) all went out to dinner Friday night at the new Mattitos over on Frisco on the Square... yum! It was so good, I had to take Glenn there for a lunch date on Saturday.

Saturday morning, I got up and went to yard sales... in search of stuff for Sam's new apartment. I found large silk ficus tree, a set of mixing bowls, two glass measuring cups, 12 wine glasses, a rolling pin for Chicken & Dumplings and a nice glass pitcher. I met Glenn over at Sam's apt to drop off my loot and help him hang stuff for the girls. Her apt is really cute. I hope that this works out for her.

Patch is funny... he pulled a good one on me this past week. I always worry about him when he parachutes and he has to do it at least once per month, sometimes more. He was scheduled to jump on Wednesday from a helicopter and I always tell him to call me right after so that I know he is okay (a mother's right). I was a little worried when he hadn't called me by 1pm on Wednesday, so I sent him a text msg. He called and was laughing because he was actually sitting in the doorway of the helicopter with his legs dangling out WHILE he was talking to me! Then he jumped and said he'd call me back... the line went dead. About 6 minutes later, my heart started beating again when he called back to tell me that he landed hard, but was just fine! That boy! He is the KING OF EXTREME!

Recap of the WEEKEND!

WOW! This past weekend was CRAZY! We had a big family/friend barbeque here at the house for Sam & Julia's graduation on Saturday. Then we all went to the graduation ceremony up at UNT in Denton that evening. Right after the ceremony, Glenn & I dropped Julia & Selina off at Selina's house because Julia is going on a trip to Mt Rushmore with Selina and her host-family. Then we met Sam, Nalani, Amanda, Sara Weller, Sara Skinner and Matt at a Tattoo parlor in Carrollton called Artistic Encounter. A man named Shawn gave Sam a "Big" apple blossom tattoo for her graduation present (okay... he was paid $250 as a graduation present from cousin Sara). It is on her right hip.

Then Sunday... Sam moved into her first apartment with Sara Weller. Dad & I helped all day and then I took Sam out to dinner at Chili's and we shopped at Walmart for thing like towels, shower curtain, baskets, etc. Oh, and she got stuff to make spaghetti. There's hope yet! LOL!

Monday: Memaw & I met Marianne over at the Creative Cottage in McKinney. We had the bestest time and are going back tomorrow!

I'm tired now, so goodnight!
