Looking Forward to Much Nicer Weather

March 18, 2014

Only two days away before Spring begins and we are all looking forward to much nicer weather. Next week is my hubby's Spring break and we are going to go bowling and play mini-golf here in town. Charles is very excited when his dad said; we are going to Golf Mountain, and Fast Lane here in town and may be going to Flea Markets as well. While my hubby is on Spring break I would love to drive our car wherever we go but not on the Interstate for now.

I have not driven the car in the Interstate with the speed of 70 mph and I need to get used to it before I'm brave enough. Though the other day when we went to Walmart it was the first time I was not so nervous when I was behind the wheel. And my hubby thought that I really did a great job and so does Charles. With Charles going to school this August I really need to pass my skills test before my permit expires as I don't want to renew it again to get it over with.

Speaking of Charles, we just enrolled him at school close to where we live about 5 minutes drive away and I think I can drive down to his school by myself. During his enrollment Charles did really really good according to the counselor. Though Charles didn't remember his middle name which is Turin. When he was asked his number he replied; I don't know as he doesn't have his own phone number which makes sense. But he knows his dad's number and yahoo email address and now he's been trying to enter passwords on the phone.


I Had a Pretty Good Day

March 11, 2014

I had a pretty good day. Drove the car tonight on our way to Copeland’s of New Orleans for our dinner and my hubby thought I did a pretty good job. Since I took my skills test a couple of months ago, I only drove the car thrice over the weekend. The first one I was shaken really bad perhaps not driving most of the time makes me nervous but tonight was a good one. Well, we ate at Copeland’s of New Orleans tonight as my hubby still had his free birthday dessert from them. 

As always we had Chocolate Fudge and it tasted really good as usual. While Barnes & Noble is only a block away my hubby decided to stopped by at the store and bought a new book, Gardens of the Moon, by Steven Erikson. My hubby reads a lot and I am not but thankfully Charles likes to read. Then we went to Wal-Mart to get our grocery shopping for the week. The most interesting food we got was Zatarain’s Jambalaya Mix. 


Charles likes Jambalaya the last time my hubby eats the food so we want to have another try for Charles. Anyway, I have tons of clothes that needs to be folded and some recorded shows to watch on television that I missed earlier. So grateful I can record shows when I am not around.


NASCAR Ultimate Speedway Track Set

March 06, 2014

While wasting our time before our dinner the other night, we ended at Hometown Flea Market here in town. At the store we found a NASCAR Ultimate Speedway Track Set, for about $5. With Charles a huge NASCAR fan the track set was a huge deal despite missing one car. Putting the track together was a big problem and the connectors won’t snap together and breaks easily. 


So when my hubby told me he was planning to buy NASCAR Ultimate Speedway Track Set for Charles for Christmas I was delighted he got the cheaper one instead of a new one. The track set isn’t worth the money though it looks pretty cool. My son, Charles really had a great time when the track was put together but now it ended up in the box. And with NASCAR season just began I know how important it is to have your little race fans have their own track so they can do their own races. 

But buying this kind of track is not the one that you need to have. There are great tracks that you can buy and Hot Wheels tracks are great ones to look at. Well, it has been a couple of days now since my hubby ordered our NASCAR Sprint Cups tickets and it has not yet arrived in our mailbox. Hopefully within the next few days it will show up in the mail as I don’t want to think the money will end up with nothing. Watching NASCAR Sprint Cup races at the speedway is fun and exciting.
