Matt made the soccer team

Matt made the soccer team and we are so proud of him. He moves into his dorm room this Thurs. Right now he has plenty of room but soon he'll be in tight quarters.

Brandi leaves this Sat. for outside of Philly. Wayne and I move her stuff up Sunday. We'll spend the night and then walk around the town since neither of us has ever been there before. We plan on taking the dogs so that should be interesting - now we'll be living through the dogs.

Soon both kids will be out - we're thinking of starting an "empty nesters" club.

Christina Applegate

I read on the internet about Christina Applegate removing both her breasts once she discovered she had breast cancer. I actually sent her a note to thank her for having the courage to talk about such a private thing. I think there are so many women out there that put their lives at risk so they can remain "beautiful" and to see someone so young, famous and beautiful take charge of her life and think of her health before her looks.

Obviously I made it back from my New York trip with no problems. It was so nice to see my family, I really hate living this far away.

Matt went off to college today and tonight I had the pleasure of ordering his school books on-line. The cost almost made me sick.

An uneventful day so I'm ready to retire.

Peace to you all.

Summer is almost over and I finally write

Well, summer is almost over and I finally have the time to write. So much has been happening and I'm not ever sure just where to begin. First of all Matt Graduated and will be going off to WestConn in just a couple days. Then we found out that Brandi will be moving outside of Philly - so in a matter of 2 weeks Wayne and I will be childless. I keep smiling on the outside but inside I am really sad...but maybe Wayne and I will finally be able to save a little money.

I took a summer class and that is over - Math. I was so good at it in school...now, ugh. I'm signed up for full-time classes in the fall, thank goodness for on-line classes though - with the price of gas. I will have my class requirements after this round of classes but graduation isn't till May - so I'll have to wait. Still unsure if I will continue on - I do think I need a break.

I have started a new side career - selling Uppercase Living - check out my website http://KathyJMaher.uppercaseliving.net I really love the products, I have a few in my house already. If your interested in more information just email. I'm really excited about it and it is a simple process.

I have decided to make some goals in my life and work towards them. Life goes by so darn fast and I seem to missing out. I'm determined to spend more time with my family and friends, do fun things, keep positive thoughts, help others, give from the heart and write here more. This is a great way to keep in touch with people - I don't honestly understand why more people don't blog. With that being said right now I am at my sister's house in Upstate NY sneaking on her computer. I was so tired I figured I'd go right to sleep - nope wide awake now. I have a 7 hour drive home tomorrow so I'm hoping this will help me sleep.

We have a new addition to the family - 2 children leave - 2 dogs stay. Her name is Ellie Mae and she is a long haired Chihuahua (will post a photo when I get home). She is very sweet but does not do well with change. She loves to be with people and is just like Boston was about being petted - if your hand is dangling she will put her head under it so it's easier for you to pet.

Work is well, as is life. Classes start up again soon - so life will be crazy again but I am aiming to stay organized and hope that helps.

See you back here soon - leave me a comment.

Peace, Kathy
