I Feel Patriotic

Nothing is ever free, though to you it be. Somewhere, somehow, someone paid.
How true.

I know I really take for granted being safe and free to do what I please, when I please, without fear. It's a shame it takes days like Memorial Day and Veterans Day for me to remember those who make my way of life possible. But THANK YOU to all military men and women fighting for our great country.

This is the view outside the office where my deposition took place yesterday. I'm not fond of heights. Oftentimes when I'm up high like this (and it was only the 37th floor) I think about the people in the World Trade Center on 9/11, which was 110 floors! Can y'all even imagine?
Our world has certainly changed since then, and so many lives have been lost to keep us safe.

Well.... on a lighter note, here's a picture of me and my hubby-wubby back on May 23rd, 2008 at the Georgia Aquarium. I wasn't feeling the love for that place. If you've seen one fish/swimming creature, you've seen 'em all. And WAY too many people getting all in my personal space. But that's just me...

Today I have a bridal shower for Jason's cousin, Reid is in a baseball tournament in Winder, he's going to ESPN Zone in Atlanta with his cousin Caleb this morning, and Eli and Alayna have skating birthday parties this afternoon. Hmmm, can I pull a rabbit out of my hat and get it all done? I'll letcha know...

P.S. A Girl Named Kelly Kelly is rockin' out at the beach, sun or no sun! Y'all don't worry, she takes the party with her wherever she goes :0)

I read this from my cell phone while at the beach but couldn't see the pictures. Warms my heart and I am "Proud to be an American". I love you and you have done a great job while your Sister was out of town:)

Happy Memorial Day. I hope you have a wonderful time at the beach!

That sentence cracked me up "in my personal space". That reminded me so much of my daughter Karla. For 33 years she's always hated anyone in her space unless she invites them. lol! Good job blogging Suzanne! Do we see a site coming soon?

Where oh where is Kelly Kelly? Did you come back from the beach, are you too sun-burned to type? Suzanne did a great job but we miss hearing what is going on with you:) Love you!!!!!
