Wow, it's actually a "summer" day here today, complete with the humidity, but hey, I wanted summer and that's our summers here. Now just to get the pool cleaned up so we can swim in it..if it gets warm.
I remember the days when I'd have to jump in the pool before bed, just to cool off enough to sleep. I miss those days/nights, but oh well
Oh, for the trip, I made sure we had hotels with pools so I could get in my exercise, I believe they all have exercise rooms too.. I'm a little nervous about going to NC with my daughter alone, because normally when we travel, we all go together. I guess it makes me feel more secure with my husband around, I'll miss him, especially on my birthday. Oh well, I'll enjoy the time with our daughter.
I hope you all have a great week ahead, and a wonderful today.

I'm so happy for our son, he finally got to see one of the "heritage" engines he's been trying to get for months, if not a year. He takes such good pictures, I wish he'd take my suggestion and make a book of them all, he knows so much about each engine, it'd be easy for him to do. But he just doesn't want to, I mean with 3-4 BIG photo albums of just the engines he's seen, it'd be such a great book. Here's a few of the photos of the special "heritage" units, as you can see they look quite different than normal Engines of that "line".
Erie RR Heritage NS 1068
Illinois RR Heritage NS 1072
New Jersey RR Heritage NS 1071
New York Central RR Heritage NS 1066
Penn Central RR Heritage NS 1073
Virginia RR Heritage NS 1069
Southern RR Heritage NS 8099
Hope you enjoyed Scott's photos, and I pray you all have a wonderful day!

Today isn't too bad of a day, it's supposed to get in the 70's so that's a lot nicer than 50's or 60's, getting closer to summer weather.
I was supposed to go to Franklin Park, IL for the railroad days there, but my son decided to just go to Rochelle instead. I love doing things with him, and our daughter, but sometimes he just likes to go alone, I think. I'm hoping and praying he gets to go out on a date with a friend of his, they had to cancel last night because she had to watch her little sister. So hopefully. I know, I know, moms aren't supposed to talk about things like that, but I love my kids and really feel bad when one is too shy to ask anyone on a date, even though he's got the greatest personality, and definitely isn't into the "bad things"; heck he rarely drinks, but when someone buys him a shot (normally a member of our family) and then it's only 1. He's more of a Pepsi drinker, so he strays away from the other stuff.
Anyway, I sound like I'm doing an ad for him *L* I'm not, but anyway, back to rt stuff, have a wonderful weekend everyone!

My hands are always cold lately, wish it'd warm up outside, I'm tired of this fall-like/spring-like weather, even those two times of the year are warmer than this summer has been so far!
And normally, here in WI, it used to be in the upper 80's lower 90's by now...things have really changed, it's a shame. I miss the days when I'd go to bed and not use any blankets, have the windows wide open, but having gone in the pool in the middle of the night, made it feel that much better. We had the heat, but it was bearable. Where are those days.
Brande's getting ready for her pony show in a couple weeks down in Springfield, IL, and we're preparing for the wedding in Green Bay next weekend. We have so much going on, the week after that is a graduation party, and then the week after that is another party. I really hate having my weekends booked up for me. Oh well, we endure, right?
Just praying I stay on the diet and continue my exercises through the time I'm gone. Withdrawals, anyone?
Have a wonderful day, and an even better weekend, I'll see you soon!

Now today it's cold and rainy, I wonder where our summer went to..so much to do, and so little time to do it.
My daughter and her bf are supposed to be going to Springfield, IL for a horse/pony show, the nationals I believe, for Area IV, but if he can't go, I may be the one taking the trip...not sure how I feel about it, I do love watching her show, but it's the traveling so far I hate...5 hour drive, I believe it said, but I guess it could be worse. Anyway, I wish her the best, I hope she does well, she's only taking the buckskin (Ty), the black and white one (Mercedes) , and the solid black ponies (Sue). She figures the baby can't be in any "payback" classes, so to travel that far wouldn't be the best. It'd be his first trip. Besides, stall fees are $70/stall and she can't really afford that much.
Anyway, I hope you all remember that smile and keep moving forward!
