Well hello there. My last post was in April and I was still have issues with my laptop util today. That is why it is 5 months later and I am doing another multi month post. I hate doing it this way but when your laptop is dial up slow and your Policeman/IT guy is busy, you hold off and do what you can. So lets see, the beginning of May was the Family of the Fallen motorcycle agility competition. This is the second one that they have had and I volunteer every chance I get. It is a great way for me to to support the Mobile Police Department and to help raise money for the families of officers who have fallen in the line of duty.This is a photo that I took of the opening ceremony.
The respect and admiration for this cause is amazing. I am so proud to be a part of it . Mothers day brought cookie of course. I made them for both my Mom and my MIL.
They were a big hit and so fun to make.
June was awesome! I ran the For the Mud of it obstacle race that is put on by the Mobile SWAT team. This was my second year doing it and it did not disappoint.
Being able to spend time with some great women made it even better.
My Faithful workout partner, Kim, woke up extra early a few Saturdays to walk the Tallulah Bankhead Tunnel with me.
They shut it down every 2 weeks and allow walkers, bikers and runners to use it. It is only open from 6 am to 8 am.
I accepted a new job this month also. It is at one of the Local hospitals. I work for a Cancer Care Center. It is challenging mentally and emotionally. I hope to make an difference in the Patients lives because they have made a huge impact on mine.
My Neice’s 19th birthday was also in June. She is a huge fan of the TV show Friends, so I made her cookies.
They turned out great.
Stephen and I finally got around to re building the gate for our back yard. It is always fun to sit back and look at the finished product.
In August I met up with a coworker from my last job. We met downtown and had brunch.
It was so much fun catching up. We said we were going to meet at least once a month. I miss you LaTanya, We need to plan our next adventure.
My Mom’s birthday was in August and we met up for a girls dinner. My dad was not feeling well so he stayed home.
We Met at a fun little Italian restaurant in Fairhope, AL called Gambino’s. It was fun and again getting together needs to be something we do more often.
On Labor Day I worked my tail off around the house. Laundry, baking, cooking, I finally painted my from door! Before…
It was red and now it is an awesome purple. I got a new door knocker and I love it! After!
It is now September 28th and it was 100 degrees outside today. I don’t care. Fall weather is just around the corner (I hope) and I am going to live it up for the next few months.
I mean you know Fall is the best time of the year!
Oh Happy Mabon!
