Going to the SUPER BOWL.....

Well, not ME personally....... at least not yet.... (since it is in Miami, and we are only 4 hours away, I am trying to convince Joe)....

But, my Indianapolis Colts are heading back to the Super Bowl....

I did have a bit of a scare yesterday, as the Jets looked very good during the 1st half of the game.... and I am the type of football watcher who gets super frustrated and wants to give up immediately!!
BUT, like they have done many times, the Colts came back in the 2nd half and D-O-M-I-N-A-T-E-D!!!!

The ONLY problem (and it's not really a problem) is that my BFF is a Saints fan..... so, I imagine it will be her and I glued to the TV during the whole game, instead of hosting our Super Bowl party.....

Oh well.....

GO COLTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Snowing in Florida....?

Well...... I wouldn't call it a big, fluffy, white snowstorm.... But, all of the forecasts say that early tomorrow morning we might see snow flurries!!!
You see, like the rest of the country, we have been in a major cold snap....and by cold (for us in FL) I mean our average temperatures have been in the low 50's (yes, that is freaking cold for me!!).
Well.....there is another big cold front coming in overnight, along with some "moisture" (in Florida, we call that rain); and the combination of those is bringing a CHANCE of snow flurries. Realistically, it probably won't happen... but it sure is fun thinking that we might wake up to see some white stuff falling from the sky!! And for the kids, who are overly excited, I really hope it does!!
Happy Snow Falling!!! I'll keep you posted!!

5 Years and It Does NOT Get Easier.....

In Loving Memory of "Nanny"
June 6, 1952 - January 7, 2005

This day 5 years ago, my mother lost her battle with cancer!! This day 5 years ago, I watched my mom take her final breaths and finally be at peace and out of pain!! This time 5 years ago, I laid my head in my mommy's lap and cried and she started her journey to Heaven..... family and her best friend at her side; praying in her ear as she died!! This time 5 years ago, we were making funeral arrangements...
I feel cheated...I feel she was cheated on life!! She didn't get the chance to grow old and watch her grandchildren graduate, start careers, get married etc... She didn't get the chance to grow old with me!!!
5 years and it doesn't get any easier..... time does NOT heal the wounds; it only makes me learn to live with it!!
I miss you more than words can describe!! You were the BEST mom You were my best friend, comforter, confidant, advice giver, "on call" medical help, shopping buddy, best cook, favorite sleepover buddy and the best Nanny to my children --You made me who I am today; and I pray that I will be half the woman, mother, co-worker, daughter and friend that you were!!
Love you honey,
