sleep number bed

I've never been to sleep on a sleep number bed.

But my husband and I just bought one. With money from our savings account. Of course, in the store the bed feels great. And seeing the pressure points taken off is pretty cool. And getting it on sale was good, though still very expensive. Of course we read reviews both ways, some folks love it, some hate it. Our bed should arrive next week. I sure hope we love it!

hotel floor

I've never been to a hotel where I'd want to sleep on the floor.

On our most recent trip, we thought my daughter and I would be staying in a room with my parents. My daughter offered to sleep on the floor. I said no way! I would never want any of us to sleep on a hotel floor! I don't know if they ever really vacuum! And even if they use some professional grade vacuum like the Ladybug XL 2300, I still don't think it would put my mind at ease enough to sleep on the floor! No, I am thankful that we were able to get a separate room with beds for each of us!

Clearview Golf Club

I've never been to Clearview Golf Club.

This course located in Canton, OH is the only course designed, built, owned and operated by an African American. Growing up loving the game of golf, Bill Powell couldn't wait to be able to play. After returning home from serving in WWII however, Powell learned the discrimination on the links. He was not allowed to play. So working nights as a security guard, Powell spent his days designing and making the Clearview Golf Club where anyone was allowed to play. It has since become an historic landmark and is still functioning today for anyone to play on.

I've never been to see TAO.

This is a group of Martial Art Drummers. This special energized choreography combined with traditional Japanese art makes this group different from the guys who beat on stainless steel drums. The group has a back ground of hard rock musician, composer and gymnast. I think this unique show is one not to be missed!

In School Suspension

I've never been to In School Suspension.

Last night however, my daughter was threatened with this consequence for "inappropriate behavior"!

I let her attend a local football game last night. She was going to meet a friend and sit with her through the game. My son was going to arrive later and meet his sister and bring her home. Luckily I waited in the parking lot to make sure my daughter met up with her friend. She texted to tell me that they would not let her sit on that side of the stadium (I still don’t know why, I guess because she was wearing a shirt for the other team?!) and told her that if she did go sit on that side, she would be given in-school suspension!! WHAT???!!! A kid will get ISS for sitting on the “wrong side of the stadium”? I cannot even believe that! I was told that this is to prevent kids from causing trouble! What? If a kid wants to cause trouble, he will find a way, no matter what rules you put into play.

I was very angry by all that but we got it worked out with help from a nice gate attendant who told the other attendant to let my daughter in on that side. My son said it was lucky he was not there. He says he would have lit into anyone, the teacher, the attendant, the cop and he would have ended up with ISS! All for wanting to sit with a friend from a different school! Well, I am glad that neither of my kids ended up in trouble, and I hope it stays that way!

Mary Poppins

I've never been to see Mary Poppins the Musical.

But we have tickets for tomorrow night! We were heading out to the Texas State Fair and found out that you can get half price tickets to see the play and the tickets allow entry into the fair for that day for free! So we purchased some tickets and will head out to see what we think will be an excellent show. I can't wait to see Mary, Burt and the kids. To hear beloved old songs as well as some new ones. I am looking forward to seeing how they blended the best of the book and the Disney movie.

Austin Triathlon

I've never been to the Austin Triathlon.

This event took place on Labor Day and looks like a lot of fun. There was a sprint distance as well as an Olympic distance course. There were even cash prizes for the top winners.

I love the idea of doing a triathlon on Labor Day. It sounds like fun and one of the best plans for weight loss austin can offer! Maybe one of these days I'll get up enough courage to enter a big triathlon like the Austin Tri!

TCU Mondays

I've never been to TCU Mondays.

Once a month, Texas Christian University hosts a Monday of activities for high school juniors and seniors. From 8am-3pm, students will participate in programs geared for them. They will have breakfast, special interest meetings, financial aid information, campus tours, lunch and department visits. Because of the large amount of students attending these activities, they will not be able to attend a class on these days.

I registered my son for the next TCU Monday. It should be a fun day looking at college life. Perhaps it will get him interested in really finding out what kind of college he'd like to attend.
