The blog has a new look. I changed the templet. Wasn't liking the way the page seemed to run together so i chose this look...I think it separates things a little better. Hope you enjoy the look.
I have a busy grandson with me now so I must go. Until next time...Enjoy!
I can't give out a lot of stories...one reason why... I don't wanna rat myself out. Ha! But we had fun...maybe next time we'll throw a bigger party and you all can join us.
Thanks ladies for another wonderful memory!

I'm here alone on the deck right now but did have friends join me for the weekend. It was nice being able to share my weekend back at the beach with friends.
Now I'm debating do I go home tonight....do I wait until tomorrow or do I just stay until Tuesday since the Direct TV guy is coming out between noon and 4....too much of a dilemma.
I'm hoping the survey guys will be back tomorrow or Tuesday...they couldn't finish the job last Thursday cause pins were missing so they had to re-shoot the property and then do what they do in the office and then come back out. I just cant wait to get to the next process where I can rope of my property in order to save it from drive bys.
But I am lucky...at least I can stay in my house and didn't have damage to the house to keep me from living it in...Most can't say that. I do feel a little guilty at times when here I am enjoying my home and beach and others have homes destroyed or a lot of work to do.
The area has come along way in the last 4 months but still has a way to go. Amazing!
Hope your weekend was enjoyable...I know mine was...maybe next time you can join me...I enjoy company. Until next time.....Robin

I still have some work to do but not with the house...all that is done. Now comes the land issues. Today I attempted in getting the land re-surveyed...but of course most of the pins in the ground that mark the property are gone because the storm washed them away....so the process is a little more time consuming. Hopefully by Monday I will have the property marked as to know where my property begins and ends.
I'm doing this so I can fence around my property...since the road that was our way in was washed away folks have been cutting through my property ...so in order to keep my property safe from any more damages I need to block it off. It's a headache but hopefully one that will be dealt with soon. That is my #1 goal for right now.
But besides that...I'm loving being back at my beach house! Being away for 4 months without sitting on my deck has been AWFUL!!!!
Tomorrow I have friends joining me for the weekend...one of my best gal pals and her husband will be her late afternoon...we're all looking forward to a relaxing time and forgetting about whatever it is we need to forget about.
Hope your all doing good and that so far 2009 has been good to you. Take care and until next time...Robin

We made our way to the petting zoo and the only thing out were the goats...he liked them though. I have a goat at my house but the ones here are smaller and have no horns so much easier to get close too.
It was funny...Colton kept telling the goats to get up...most of them were just laying on the ground chillin' as if no kids were around at all.
And Colton thinking he's all grown up...that he doesn't have to ride in the stroller...he doesn't have to hold your hand and he can certainly walk all on his own and at his own pace.
It was a good thing the zoo wasn't crowded...not sure if that was good for me or for him...but it was good!

It's been while since I've had 2 to watch and I must say it could be a little difficult. Colton was a little jealous I think...so trying to get him to behave around Hayden while not making him think I was playing favorites was a chore...at least for me....but we managed.
It was nice during nap time...we all fell asleep on the couch...Hayden in one arm and Colton beside the other.
It was funny....when Colton and I sit on the couch together he sits on my right side...earlier I had put Hayden in that arm to feed her...Colton saw and came over and and started pulling on me saying...Colton, couch...Colton, couch...he was trying to tell me that was his spot...when i moved Hayden to the other arm he climbed in his spot and said thank you. Now that's precious. Ha!
Tomorrow I think Colton and I will venture out...if the weather holds true for a nice day I think we'll make a trip to the zoo and see some animals.
