My first and last paint ball experience. I am in blue. My niece just turned 13 and wanted a different kind of party. Later we went shopping at the mall. MUCH more Aunt Dee's speed. Shooting people is not fun for me. Having people shoot at me is just hell. But I can say I've done it!
Still wind snowing today. The latest spring arrival I remember. Two years ago we were too far into spring. I always think of the commercial "it's not nice to fool mother nature."
So since the last post there have been many snow days, many Bronx days, a trip to Miami, a trip to the Greenbrier, and my birthday last week.
The new master bedroom is almost complete. Waiting on just a few things in the bathroom and we'll be moving downstairs. I really like it for a yoga studio in the meantime. I love the big windows. Tons of natural light.
Our big snow came around Valentine's Day. We got about 18 inches. I was starting to get a little freaked out when it finally stopped. Nothing like realizing you could not get out of your home to the hospital easily. Our road was snowed in completely for a day. After that you had to have a truck to get out, with four wheel drive. It was pretty. It was nice the way the world shut down for everyone here. Families all tucked in together. But now I am so ready for my flowers and warm nights on my porch.
We went to Miami for Jackson's trip. The kids take turns picking the destination of their choice. He is a Heat fan so Miami it was. I loved it. South Beach, Ocean drive, and then the game. We sat right behind the Heat bench so we were on ESPN a lot of the night. My family and friends were sending us text pictures of us. That was a neat experience. And seeing Lebron James up close was pretty darn awesome. Even for me. Jackson was in heaven.
We picked him up in a limo to make it a trip of a lifetime.
And I will end on a shot of Bronx on one of our warmer days. Having a milk and cookie break before he was stung by a wasp. A sting that sent him to the doctor's office days later because his young body couldn't fight off the venum.
