Wasting away in Margaritaville!!

I know that I am not blogging as normal, life for me has not returned to normal.
Think it might be time to redefine normal?

 Anyway, I so appreciate all of you reading and checking in on me.
I promise I will be back on a normal blogging schedule soon.
I appreciate all the prayers for my grandmother.
We are prayerful for the best, and God's will.
Cancer is certainly a terrible thing in itself, add Alzheimer's well you can imagine.

As most of you know my family relocated to Gulf Shores in April.
 So we are living the oil spill first hand.

I wanted to THANK Jimmy Buffett for his amazing concert to help all of us down here!

Here is the Princess at the concert with a very cool VIP

We had a great time!
