Clear Water Beach - Florida Spring Break 2012

even though I had a great weekend, part of me still wants to be on this beach in Florida.
I was taking a walk along the sea line picking shells when on my way back from my walk I see my youngest being buried in sand by my oldest.
LOL...... at least they were getting along and having fun
Good old fashion fun.... no ipods, no computer games, no computers not one ....... just plain fun.

Orlando Florida Renissance Resort

okay so here are a few pics.... yes when I entered the resort my jaw dropped. it was
B E A U T I F U L and I loved their decor. They had tons of cool art displayed and also tons of cool little places to sit at all over the place with cool lighting. We were on the 6th floor. This place was huge. They had music playing on the outside grounds and fire's burning at night so that you can sit, enjoy and just relax. I wish I would of had more time to just sit and relax.

We did so much and had tickets for Universal Studios, wet and wild, and Islands of Adventure that would take up almost all the hours of the day. I never even got time to go to the resort indoor bar to enjoy a drink. I did have a couple of pina coladas by the pool which were pretty delicious I must admit.

I will try to add more pics soon... remember I took at least a 1000 pics but I will share only a few more as I don't want to bore you with my spring break trip.

so I was told that the picture I posted earlier looked like a mug shot......LOL....... sorry did not mean to scare anyone. I don't always like to wear makeup and/or a lot of makeup like I used to so I thought posting a picture with my crazy unruly hair and my sun spots from this past weekend was okay to do to show that it's okay to be natural. But instead I was told that it looked like a mugshot and that I did not comb my hair.

to be honest I don't comb my hair I rarely do that. I usually just use my hands when I am drying my hair or straightening it.

so I guess I decided to post new pics where I hope I look like I am not going to jail.
sorry did not mean to scare anyone.

Somewhere in Kentucky

okay so here are two pics that I took somewhere in Kentucky..... The ride was long, but some of the scenery was amazing especially when you have someone like me that loves trees. we did get caught up in a few storms on the way to Florida. Thank God that once we got to Orlando it never rained it was sun sun sun every day that we were there. Chattanooga was pretty as well as Nashville. I have never seen so many Cracker Barrels..... more to come


So I am back, actually got back yesterday around 12 something in the afternoon. Am I happy to be back? Yes, I guess I am, but part of me could of stayed. It's not reality though if you really think about it.

We had fun - the trip and drive went very well and I am so grateful. Of course, I am so worn out. Been washing since yesterday, plus my plants needed some care and I hate my floors having any kind of dust on them so that had to be done. So no, I did not get home to take a nap, it's the same ole real life as usual.

I took around a 1000 pics. Tons and tons and I will post them soon. I finally got the laptop away from my son so now I get to use it and download all the pics. Pics from the road trip, to Universal, to what we ate and what we did. We went to Clear Water beach which was beautiful and very relaxing. Was I in pain no not at all not even when I was bent over for a few hours collecting sea shells. NO pain. That felt good.

So stay tuned I will be posting tons of pics in the next week and here are a few starting in a few minutes.....

so yesterday for only a few minutes as I had tons of running around to do as I have today I took a few minutes to lay on the grass under this wonderful tree. so relaxing. who cares who was passing by it was just great to take a few minutes and just lay down and enjoy the weather. toooo bad it was just for a few minutes.
I have 4 more days to go and I am driving to Florida with my boys. One whole week of just being away will probably do wonders for my health.
as healthy as I would like to be I am not. my neck issues are getting worse that sometimes the meds don't even work and I have been noticing that more and more. not sure if the cold weather was affecting it. I probably will need to go under the knife sooner then I would like to. I guess I am just scared that I might not come out being able to walk or move. Not sure if I can handle being in a wheel chair.
SUCKS, but sometimes the pain is tooo much to handle. I think it's getting the best of me and I am so tired of taking all the meds I take every day.
another wonderful day to be had today. I have a Target run I have to do to return shorts that my son bought that don't fit. My dad called the other day wanted to talk about his new tv he bought and I think he really wants us to come over to check it out. Let's see how many tvs does he have in that house now like 6 or more.... LOL... my father just like me, but I love cameras and he loves his TVs. Plus, I want to go see my parents before I leave...
Okay all I have to run now again did not sleep in... never do on the weekends like I would like. The birds were chirping this morning and that woke me up.... never heard them during the winter and now for the last few days they have been singing and singing and singing...

depeche mode - home (1997)

And I thank you for bringing me here
For showing me home
For singing these tears
Finally I've found that I belong

Feels like home
I should have known
From my first breath

God send the only true friend I call mine
Pretend that I'll make amends the next time
Befriend the glorious end of the line

And I thank you for bringing me here
For showing me home
For singing these tears
Finally I've found that I belong here
