An Official Official Update....News.....And I Am Heading Out Of Town

Hello dear world

How are you ?? Well this is my last entry....not !!!!! April Fools

Okay I have an official update today. The weather here in my neck of the woods keeps changing and the pollen is everywhere. Of course its been another week at work for me but its been pretty alright. I have wanted to show you my new look but I am sad to report that my digital camera is d-e-a-d and so I will have to get batteries for it so I am afraid there won't be any pictures of my new do.

You might also want to know that I am quite happy happy happy happy happy happy happy. My family and I will be leaving town on Saturday morning because we are heading to South Carolina on a Camping trip to a place called "Hunting Island State Park" . If you would like to check it out here is the link for you ----> http://www.huntingisland.com/ . This will be our very 1st trip to South Carolina and to Hunting Island State Park. We will be gone the whole week and we will return on Monday. If you don't hear from me until then you will know where I am. I haven't packed at all yet but I will.

Of course I will also be graduating this Thursday from my Citizens Police Academy class at 7:00pm at the Police Headquarters and there will be a Bar-be-que immediately following.

In other news.....my niece's Confirmation on Sunday was really nice. My niece looked beautiful in a white dress that my mom made for her. The Church ceremony was also beautiful. Of course you know that we had a little celebration at the house after. Two of my female coworker's came and one of them was with her husband. My other coworker came who had lost her husband just recently whose funeral I attended a few months ago. Anywho...they had a great time and they had eaten some of the Gumbo my mom made and they really liked it. Some of our other friends came by with their kids and they too enjoyed the celebration.

Lastly...while I was on my lunch break with my coworker's that I hang out with we went to a store that we like and I ended up getting some books I wanted. I got a total of eight books and here is a list of them :

1. JoAnn Ross - Freefall

2. John Grisham - The King of Torts

3. John Grisham - The Innocent Man

4. Janet Evanovich - Plum Lovin'

5. James Patterson - Jack & Jill

6. Maeve Binchy - The Copper Beech

7. Michael Connelly - The Closers

8. James Patterson - Judge & Jury

So my dear world how was your day today ?? Do you have any news for me ??? I do hope that you had a really enjoyable day. I do have a question for you : What do you think of these gas prices ? Let me know your thoughts on this.

By the way my BIRTHDAY is almost here. My birthday is on April 22 so if you would like to send me a present....books, cards or a little something hint, hint, hint feel free to let me know. I'll be waiting !!!!!!!!!

That's about all for now. I'll talk to you again soon. Have a good rest of the week and do keep me posted on anything you would like to share.

Take care everyone

Good Morning Monae,  so glad taht you had a lovely weekend,  Good that you and the family are getting away for your first camping trip of the year. Fingers crossed for a lovely warm week for you.  You were asking about the price of petrol your "gas" or "petrol" as we call it .. well I bet your Dad wouldn't like to pay the price we pay over here we pay nearly £4.80p a gallon = $2.40  !!!
That is the aprox price as we pay by the litre. and I am not exactly right on the cost per gallon of petrol... we pay £1. 08 per litre. !!  It is terrible and we certainly are trying to think before we drive these days,   Love Sybil xx

You have a large selection of books there!  You must be like my husband and are able to read really fast and still comprehend the story!  I'm very slow when I read, partly due to the eyes.  ::sigh - age::

Happy Birthday! The state park looks awesome.

I'm new to your journal, just started reading.  When I saw you were going to Hunting Island - my Uncle Jack and Aunt Billie used to rent a cabin and vacation at Hunting Island every year.  This was years ago before the hurricane leveled everything.  I hope you have a fantastic time.  My aunt and uncle talked about how pretty it was.
