Well, I guess you all know I am back to work now after my vacation. It always goes by so fast. I had such a wonderful time with Tammie and Mom! We didn't really do anything much except hang out together and we went out to eat several times. Of course Mom had to go to "Joe's Crab Shack". That was a given. We went to Walmart several times too. I don't know what it is about that store but it always seems to have everything I need and it is just so easy to relax there.
Man, I sound like a commercial testimonial! That isn't what I mean to do, it just comes out like that.
Well, Tammie's dog, "Hokey", a nine month old Boston Bull dog, was along for the ride when they came down for vacation. He is the cutest thing but boy is he a fart head. He even answered to that by the time they were ready to leave. He loved to jump on my lap and play at biting my fingers and licking my arms when I was trying to read. But you can't help but love the little stinker.
While Tammie was here she had the book, "Twilight". After she was finished reading it I had to take her to Barnes and Noble to get the other two books in the series. She read all three books while she was here and then left them here for me to read. Now, to be honest, I was never really thrilled about the hype that I had been hearing about the books and the movie so I started reading it with less than enthusiasm. It wasn't long before I caught the gist of the book. I never really cared about teenage love but this book is pretty good. I am finished with the first two books and am now starting on the third one. I am addicted to reading and I have to finish what I start. I am a little more enthusiastic now than I was in the beginning. I think I would like to see the movie now that I have read the books. Just to see how Hollywood brings it to life. Most of the time when I read a book and a movie is made from it I am bitterly disappointed in the movie. Who knows, maybe it is an unwritten law that the movies have to suck.
Well, to all of my friends and family, if you still read my blog, I can't wait for Mom and Tammie to get moved down here. Of course, like all siblings, there will be times of discord but all in all it will be great to have family around. It has been way to long since I have had family around on a permanent basis.
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
