Why you ask, because in just over 24hrs my big blister will be here 🙂

Big Blister??? That's my pet name for my big sister Melanie!! (Yes I have a sister AND a daughter called Melanie – and even MORE cool, my daughter Melanie decided to enter the world on July 1st, 2 wks early ON my sister's birthday)

So she and her youngest son James (11yrs) arrive for 9 days tomorrow night and we (at the Bertelson Household) have about, oh 4 DAYS worth of prep work, cleaning, tidying and de-cluttering to do!!



unlucky or not? – not for me

Everyone is always so superstitious about Friday 13th, but I got engaged to Nils on Friday 13th (he had NO idea of the date when he proposed!!) and so to me it's lucky – here we are over 24 years later, married almost 21 years and still going strong. – YEAH!

I can't believe another week has flown by, only 12 more days and my sister (and 1 nephew) will be here for a visit, I am very excited but a tad worried that the office won't be done by then (since Matt and James will be sleeping in there!) The tongue and groove wood for the roof arrived yesterday but about a 3rd of it was damaged, so had to be taken back and reordered!!

Finally got all the photos from the camping trip up on the Crosswaves web site – the ones taken by the professional photographer are amazing! You can see them HERE

I can't believe I have been gone from Motorola for over 4 months already – I don't miss it a bit! Although I am going to be spending the afternoon with 2 'still at Motorola, but down in Ft Lauderdale now' friends and their kids.

Night – still need to post about Nils' and my weekend away at Disney and surviving the “timeshare schpiel”



How to feel younger !

A NEW hairdo does wonders indeed!

I told Robin (can I just say how much I LOVE that she comes to my house to do my hair and charges 1/2 what I'd pay at the salon where she used to work!!) that I wanted a new look, I was sick of the same haircut etc.

I LOVE what she did and the kids, the spousal unit and even people from church said “you look 10 yrs younger and well sexy” – Not sure 'sexy' is the look I was going for while on stage singing at church Wednesday night, but I must admit it does one good to hear compliments once in a while!

Nighty-Night, I really must go to bed now!



This is my first post
