It's so nice to have a break from the heat.  Seems so funny saying it feels good to be in the 80's! but it sure beats 105 or hotter.  It has looked more like August than June. Grass is brown, fields that aren't irrigated are dying, I even saw a couple maple trees yesterday that at the very top they are turning their fall colors all ready.  We really could use some rain and they aren't forecasting any in the near future.

In 2 more days we find out the sex of my Grandchild.  I am so excited. Truth be told I am hoping for a little girl but will be very happy with a little boy too!  Carmen at one time wanted a little boy first, but now I think she is just wanting a healthy baby. I am kind of nervous being that she had surgery before she knew she was pregnant.  Was on steroids and pain meds, but the doctors seem to think there won't be any problems. So we will see Wednesday at the ultrasound.

Carmen is doing a little better emotionally the last 2 weeks.  I believe its because she is finally standing up for herself and not being a doormat to her ex-boyfriend. She has finally blocked him on face book.  I don't understand the younger generation why they think they need to put every single thing they think and feel on face book and why do they feel they have to remain close friends with their ex boyfriends.  In Carmen's case I do understand she needs to be civil because there is a child involved but come on lets be real, how many of us can say we remained good friends with our ex-boyfriends and or ex-husbands or wives.?

My emotions are also all over the place at times. Learning to take one day at a time and count my blessings as I go.
