Happy Birthday to me!

I am 46 years old today and for whatever reason, an emotional wreck.

For Today: July 15,2010

Outside my window… The fog is lifting and the sun is coming out.

I am thinking… That I need to go grocery shopping....

I am thankful for… my dog, he walked with us this morning and made it another day...

I am wearing… a hat.

I am remembering… To be kind today.

I am going… grocery shopping, at some point today.

I am currently reading… The Prize winner of Defiance, Ohio

I am hoping… to win the lottery.

On my mind… The other Larabees, they are in Jamaica for Kayli's wedding.

From the learning rooms… Nothing. It's sweet summertime!

Noticing that… my legs are getting in shape from all my walking.

From the kitchen… just made a cup of tea...

Around the house.. needs to be cleaned.

One of my favorite things~ Reading.

From my picture journal…



Zak, my 17 year old, placing 4th at The Bay Stae Games 7/2010

Bay State Games 2010







We left for Boston on Friday and had our first "college Tour" at Boston University. While we were sitting there listening to the lady telling us all about the clubs, activities and travel that the school has I couldn't help but wish it was me going to school. That is my one and only regret in life that I didn't take my college years at Virginia Intermont more seriously. I hope I can stress this to Zak that this is his one and only shot...make it a good one!!


Then we headed over to Umass for wrestling. Including Zak thhere were 5 kids total from his team. He and Josh made it to the finals and Zak ended up 4th but never did get to face Mak. But he was happy with the outcome and I met the coach from Bridgewater University. He seeems interested in Zak so we may have to check that one out....

Qoute of the day

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

The month of July!

Yes, I love the month of July and I will not lie in the reason. It is my birthday month! :) And this year especially, we have a weekend in Boston, Disney and family events sprinkled throughout the month. Life is definitely good.
