My Grandfather always had guidance to offer. Whether we wanted it or not! One of the lingering memories is this saying I discovered today in my daily Google offerings: Quote of the Day - Vince Lombardi - "Show me a good loser, and I'll show you a loser."

Day Tripping

Today I chaperoned Abby's class on their field trip to the museum. As we were ready to leave the butterfly exhibit this butterfly landed on Abby. I think I may have been more excited than she was!

On The Road Again


We're off to the Six Flags Lodge and Indoor Water Park for a few days of R&R.  We've been on overdrive for months and worked right through spring vacation.  We hardly spent any time with the kids and they were troopers about it.  Mom and Dad decided to bring them for a long weekend get away to Lake George, NY to unwind, but they seem to be getting a head start en route.  Maybe I should have sent them to bed a little earlier last night!

That New Car Smell

Nissan Quest

This is my "new" used car, a 2004 Nissan Quest. I like the way it handles, and it's loaded with features. The resale value seems pretty good, much better than American made cars (which are the only ones I've purchased in the past.)

It fulfills 2 of my kids 3 wishes: they wanted a DVD player and double sliding doors (got them) but this car doesn't have second seat windows that open. We did however get 1 sun roof and 4 moon roofs. Sweet.
