Goings On and Happy Thought for the Day

So much to tell! First, be sure and vote in my poll --------------------------------------->

Yesterday, my two little ones that aren't in school yet, and I, went out into the back yard after walking the dog and kids to school and sat down and played with sidewalk was divine...the air was a little breezy, but balmy and the sun was as warm as I could ask for. We were in short sleeves and comfortable. Last year at this time we were recovering from a FREAK snowstorm where we lost power and my husband's commute home was more than 8 hours. Anyone who knows Utah weather, knows the last several days have been an absolute GIFT!

So my happy thought for the day is:
"The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring." ~Bern Williams

....cause I am DEFINITELY feeling hope that spring is right around the corner!

I feel the NEED....the NEED for SPEED!!!

So, I don't think I mentioned that I got a SPEEDING ticket a couple of weeks ago....first in 25 YEARS of driving...I'm pretty bummed, and of course opted for DRIVING SCHOOL instead of just 'pleading guilty". As I'm bumbling along through the course (online) I'm thinking...this is so not worth it!!

Anyway, I've decided that I'm going to stick to SPEED SCRAPS instead of street racing (just kidding) to get my adrenaline rush.....SO....

Join me tonight at for a rip-roarin' couple hours of fun at Mach 3!! It's at 9pm EST and all participants will get a posting bonus and be entered into a drawing to win a free kit!!

Can't wait to see you there!!!
