Happy Independence Day

Just a quick post to wish you & your families a very Happy Independence Day. May you have a safe & wonderful holiday weekend! God Bless all of our troops that are fighting for our country to give us this Independence Day!
We don't really have too much planned this weekend. Tomorrow (or should I say today since it's after midnight already), we're going to look at yet another home as we haven't heard anything back yet about the home we looked at the other night. Then we'll be having a cook-out & afterwards, heading to the gym before it closes (it's closing at 8:00 p.m. tomorrow for the holiday). I doubt that we're going anywhere to see fireworks (the ones in the picture above are actually from over Niagara Falls 2 years ago). Saturday, we may go play a little golf since we haven't been out yet this year & I'm also hoping to do some more scrapbooking this weekend.

Speaking of the house we looked at the other night......it was absolutely gorgeous! Over 3,000 square feet, a gorgeous & huge kitchen with granite countertops, a library (which I could have turned into my scrapbook room), a huge master suite with 2 walk-in closets & 3 more bedrooms upstairs, one that had it's own bathroom & the other 2 shared a Jack-n-Jill bath. Anyway, the reason I doubt that we'll get it is because there were several other couples looking at it as well. In the time we were there, 4 other couples showed up & she still had more coming that night plus quite a few the next day! So I'm not getting my hopes up on it & we're gonna still keep looking. Besides, I'm not so sure that I want to be that far away from where we're at now & it's a good 35-40 minute drive one way to work for Jim. And on top of that, we'd have to switch gyms since the one we belong to only has that one location & we love our gym :)

Toni asked me about the movie Wall E & how I liked it. It was cute, but for some reason, it wasn't what I was expecting. I don't know why, really. Jim & Cass really did like it, though. And I bet most kids will like it as well.

Anyway.....I guess this post turned out to be longer than I planned, so I'll stop here as my eyes are getting tired.

Happy 4th!
