3 Hours.... wow... the most I've done is two. It feels great, but it's exhausting!

Carol, he would like to. He told them he wanted to come down after he graduates, which will be next May. But he has to be able to afford it. Airfares are running between $1400 and $1900 right now. He needs to save up.

Yeah, I agree with Shirley, a three hour swim is wonderful! I love listening to bands!

Margaret - I agree, sometimes there's nothing better than quiet.

Laurie - Will your son go back to visit again? It's nice to have family ties around the world.

Jen - What kind of car will you get next? Or is it more, you'll take what you can afford?

3 hour swim this AM. Running out the door, Missus and I are out to see Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes! Great Jersey bar band style, haven't seen them since New Years Evem 1987, Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan, Great sound, great show. I guess I see how much we've all aged in the meantime (grin).

hi folks :)

I spent my afternoon running errands, dropped Randy off at his parent's house to help with some of their projects and they'll bring him home after dinner. so I'm up to my own devices with the big ol truck that I half don't want to drive any where because I'm afraid of parking it lol

I found a buyer for my broken down car, he'll pay me a little more than the scrap yard would and I feel better about it going to someone who has the skills to make use of the car. Now to figure out when and how to get a car for myself....

Laurie I hope you find that quiet today! I feel the need to be productive, I should shuffle myself into my studio to work on stuff instead of perusing the interwebs at large :)

I like quiet. :)

Didn't go swimming today. Got a lot of "I'll do it later" type chores done today. Feeling good about that but miss my pool time.

LOL.... I just noticed I used the word "quiet" three times in one short paragraph. After the last couple of weeks, do you think I might just need some peace and quiet?

Carol, I'm so glad you've kept that contact with Martino. What a great experience that was for all of you. My son has recently gotten back in touch with his Argentina family also. He discovered a couple of new apps that make it a lot easier, since they don't have skype and he hates facebook. He lived with them for a year in 2006/2007, and visited for a couple of weeks in 2012. They adore him :-)

I should have gotten up this morning to swim, but I just.... didn't. I need to get my butt back in gear. I posted a request for challenge-taker-onners here www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes

If anyone's interested, I'll post some simple rules.

I'm seeing my mom and sister later. I think we'll take a quiet walk in the park and then get dinner someplace. Otherwise, a quiet day. I think I'll take my coffee and my book and go sit on my porch and enjoy a cool quiet morning.

Happy Saturday! We'll be going down to LA later today to take Martino (our Italian exchange student) to the airport, so we'll try to get in a short hike. I think he is surfing this morning since he isn't here. He spent last night with some surf friends which it's great he's gotten to hang out with all of his friends while he's been here.

What are you guys up to today?
