High School Graduation

My nephew, Perry’s graduation was lots of fun. I particularly liked the theme of the Salutatorian’s address to the grads: don’t wait for your future to happen to you — go out and make your future.

The above photo is of Perry, Terri (his mom), Paul (his dad), and Jordan (his sis).

I’ll be uploading more photos later — maybe next week since I’m flying home tomorrow. And in the words of the Class of ’05 — May the force be with you. More photos — KC

Drive-Thru Zoo!

Included in the photos are my sister, cousin, nephew, niece, and son 🙂

Perry’s graduation ceremony tonight was great. I’m hoping to upload photos of him tomorrow, but that’ll have to be after we return from the Ft Worth Zoo — KC

Texas Two-Step

I’ve been out of town since last Friday. First I went to Houston for the RWA Strategic Planning Retreat and mini board meeting. On Sunday evening I flew to Dallas to spend time with my family for a week. My son Ian is with me. My nephew Perry graduates from high school today (Thursday) and his mom (my baby sis) is having a huge party for him tomorrow. Here’s a photo of my beautiful 2-year-old niece. I’ll post more photos soon! — KC


It’s been several days since I’ve posted, mainly because I’ve been snowed under.

Ian celebrated his 15th birthday and tonight he’s at his 8th Grade Prom. Today is also my husband and my 27th wedding anniversary as well as my one-week mark on non-smoking (I’ve gained 1 pound for each day I haven’t smoked and have some serious dieting in my future)!

Next week I’m heading to Houston for the board retreat, followed by a week with Ian in Dallas visiting family and seeing my nephew, Perry, graduate!

In the meantime, I’m trying to get caught up on writing as well as finishing up things that must be done before I leave town. Anyone know where I can rent a brain??? I think I’m gonna need one — KC

  1. Congratulations on your wedding anniversary and yay for the week of non-snoking 🙂

Happy Mom’s Day!

My kids are still asleep and I don’t live near my mother or m-i-l, so there’s no rush. I’ve enjoyed a peaceful stroll around my garden. It’s fun to see my vegetable babies growing!

Today is Day 3 of being a non-smoker and it’s supposed to be the hardest in terms of cravings. Supposed to be is correct — because it hasn’t been bad! I don’t think it’s going to be, either. The absolute secret must be in having the right mind-set in order to quit cold turkey — and this website helped tremendously:

My largest battle so far is in terms of what I do out of habit and trying to form new habits to replace the old. For instance, my walk around the garden today. Which is fine when it’s nice outside — but maybe I can take my coffee to the lanai and drink there when it’s not.

On the writing front, I haven’t written a word since quitting, so my big plan today is to write something. Anything — besides in my blog — KC
