We saw the fireworks!

Last night we took the bus (WAY too much traffic on the island right now) to town, and we walked over to the water to see the fireworks. The Queen Mary 2 was friggin' RIGHT in front of us, so that was awesome. That is one big boat. Seriously!

At the end of the fireworks show, the QM2 blew its horn, and then ALL the boats in the marinas (TONS!) blew their horns too. It was one of the neatest things I've ever experienced.

Yesterday was tons of fun. I spent all day working on our new home-business, and I had a fun time designing and creating things. :) Jeremy did some filing and cleaning (SHOCK! ;-) ), and I made some pancakes for breakfast. Those are good. I think I'll make some today too. :)

Jeremy took a picture of me doing a handstand in front of the Newport Bridge in town last night...
My doctor said I really shouldn't be doing handstands, but it was only one, and I just couldn't pass it up. It looked neat with the sunset. I'll have to remember to post it in my Handstand Porfolio. I'll see if I can get around to it...

I bought a plane ticket yesterday to fly to another state for my friend's wedding. I'm VERY excited. I'm only going for four days because I don't want to miss much work, but it should be lots of fun. :) That's THREE plane trips this summer. WOW!

I feel bad about leaving work though. With two weeks vacation, one week given off because of a holiday, and then this 4-day weekend trip, I feel like I'm ditching them. I'm sure they don't feel that way though. I mean... everybody has taken 2-3 weeks off this year for vacation... except me. And I do deserve two weeks vacation!

*sigh* I just wish I didn't feel so guilty. But even though I know that practice was canceled this last week, I still felt guilty about that. SO weird. LOL. I just love working, and it's difficult to be away. I miss the kids.

Speaking of kids... there was this family of five children (2 boys, 1 girl and toddler twin boys) sitting next to us last night at the fireworks. They made me want kids. And not just one... like four or six. LOL. I'm strange. I go through stages.

Before I was married, I wanted eight children. That changed to four after some thinking. Then after I got married, it was zero. Jeremy talked me into having one, but I'm still not sure. Sometimes I think I can handle it (physically), but other times... I know I can't. I suppose I just have to wait until God tells me when and how many. I do feel like in ten years would be good.

It's smart to pay off the student loans and the car, buy a house, get a boat (tee hee) first. :) I feel like having those types of things out of the way before we start a family. Children are expensive. Did you know that raising a child to the age of 18 costs over $250,000! That's crazy. Not that I care more about money than I do children (quite the contrary), but it's just interesting to think about. You should actually *have* that kind of money before taking on such an endeavor.

I love children though. I love my nieces and nephew. They're so great. I don't know what I'd do without them. Any time I can see them, I'm thrilled. I just love them so much. And the amount that we love our puppy dogs? WOW! If I loved a child just half as much, it would be a ton. I'm not sure what my heart wants, so I know that I'll look to God to figure it out for me. I'm glad He does the worrying, and I don't have to. LOL.

For now, we're just going to enjoy each other (which is great for us!). Enjoy loving. Enjoy living. Enjoy caring. Enjoy the fireworks...
