Java With Jo


Well it has been just way too long since I have posted a Java With Jo for you all.  And first things first!  As most of you know I really do not like to use any profanity on my blog, so my apologies in advance for using the A** word today.  But I cannot help but share with anyone the excitement about my friend Miranda, who has finally been able to kick Cancer's ASS!  So Congratulations Miranda!  I know it has been such a long and painful journey for you and I know your whole family has been grateful for all of the love and support that has been offered to you.  You are one tough cookie and you are now even stronger from this journey that you have had to endure.  I'm thankful that you are in my life and are here to stay!  Here's to many more movie nights and audiobooks in our future!  So I couldn't help but share this picture from this past winter of Miranda and her lovely family.

Well that really makes all other news on the homefront irrelevant doesn't it?  I think so!  I have been adapting well to the hours at my new job, and will finally be able to start enjoying my Mondays off very soon!    That is good because with spring right around the corner it's time to start getting the garden ready and getting the outside cleaned up also.  There is still snow in my yard but I'm confident that it will be gone within a couple of weeks!  I'm looking forward to a snow-free Easter!

For the weekend I am heading to a state bowling tournament for the ladies league for the first time.  So that should be a new experience and I'm definitely looking forward to it.  My bowling has definitely gone downhill throughout the season as the last couple of weeks I haven't even bowled my average!  I'm hoping that will change for the tournament.

My little girl is going to be 20 years old this weekend!  Oh my goodness!  She has grown into such a beautiful young lady that I am very proud of.  Being a mom can be a tough job, but I am reaping the benefits now as Vicki is making good choices and decisions in her life that will have a positive impact on her future.  I love you Vicki and have a great birthday weekend!  Here is a picture of what Vicki looks like when she is baking.

Well I guess that is it for today!  Have a great weekend everyone!
