  1. I love sweet tea, and it has been so long since I had any good sweet tea. I drink a cup of decaf tea in the morning and use a spoonful of honey in it but it isn't the same as the good ol' southern sweet tea I grew up on.

    1. i hope you have a chance to make/get some too. McDonalds sometimes gets close to it.

  2. The Goosebumps books were big with my son so I read some of them along with him. We also watched the show every day when he got home from school. I always enjoyed them...just enough scary for me. lol

    1. i agree. they were quick easy reads too!

  3. My birthday is close to a major holiday, too. Yes, must have it moved TO the day. I'm with you!

    1. I agree. wish we could move it. as we get older i guess we just move it huh?

  4. Congratulations on your Masters!!! I am 55 and just graduated with my Associates!! Its pretty dang exciting!!

    1. congrats to you too! thank you! what is next?
