Only one more to go....

Saturday night was the winter homecoming at my daughters school. It was the last homecoming for DD and, according to her group of friends, it sucked. New DJ that did not understand dance music. They decided, after an hour and a half of the Eagles greatest hits, that they would be better off just going out to eat and coming home. Now we only have ONE MORE DANCE to go, the PROM. When DD gets home from school we are planning to go to the jewelry shop and find the right jewelry for the prom. Last week we went to the jewelry shop and they didn't have prom stuff in yet, but promised it for today.
The next few months are going to be extremely busy for my daughter. The day after prom we fly out to this place. This is where the scholarship foundation for the big scholarship she won is flying us to for their meeting/scholarship award dinner. We come home a few days later and she has about a week and a half before senior trip, which takes her back to Florida. Then there are the dozens of graduation of the class etc. and then the week after graduation we head to the beach.
Superhubby is working out of town until at least Wed. night. I have to get used to that. I would be fine if someone in this area didn't have a gun last night. Someone, I have no idea who, decided about 11 last night to just sit outside and shoot a gun over and over for a couple of hours. There is one house I can see from my house and it wasn't them. I think it was up the hill through the woods somewhere. Someone new moved in up the road last week and it could have been them. I don't think it would be a great idea to go ask someone you don't know to quit shooting their guns. They may not be happy with someone else making suggestions.
Now I must go, not because I need to clean (no..not that) I need to go back to facebook. I have become a word challenge junkie.

She's gorgeous! I have to admit, I didn't know there was special prom jewelry. Perhaps that's only for the more populated areas? We got fancy dresses, shoes and hairdo's, but I don't even remember what I wore for jewelry.

Prom jewelry? I'm glad Theresa didn't know about that. I'm also glad those days are over with. Although apparently sororities have 'formals.' Yeah, might as well have a prom. Thankfully there doesn't seem to be any 'formal' jewelry. At least that I know of.

I am so sorry it's taken me so long to get here, Katy. Those K-kids looked so great for the dance; I tell ya, each dress beats out the one before. Just when I think she and the other K-girl can't get any more beautemous? I find out they can and are! And those K-boys. handsome. I just cannot believe that she is going to be graduating so quickly here. I am so happy for her because she is going to have such a wonderful time with college, but I am going to "miss" her, if that makes any sense. I cannot even tell you how much fun I had following them through last year's dances. I just want them all to know that Auntie Kim will ALWAYS LOVE THEM!

Hey, I do have a favor to ask; if ya have a spare, I'd love to have a senior pic. And also, be sure to send me a graduation announcement because I'd love to send her a card for that; we can e-mail about it. In fact, if you get a chance, drop me an e-mail and let me know what the latest is on the scholarship presentation festivities. Or maybe we can get together on Facebook and chat back and forth? I miss you so much and really need to have some chat time. I am ALWAYS on doing schoolwork, so just send me something to interrupt me and I'll hop over to FB. I need to take a break sometimes!

So, anyway...I know I've been a bad blogger buddy lately, but I will get better, I promise. I just need help to move off the schoolwork site occasionally. HAAAAAALLLLLPPPP MEEEEEEE!!! :)
