Big Cat! Wonder if I'm allergic to him too?
These Gazelles all stopped to stare at me. Where else can ou see a camel strolling past a palm tree?
Strange but beautiful flower.

I did get my new MBT's today. I hope that these ugly looking moon shoes help with my walking. They are quite pricey but the reviews are great. Plus I did not pay retail. If the reviews are correct, my knees should not bother me anymore when I walk. Nor my lower back. Actually, I'm planning on going to the zoo tommorow, by myself, to try them out. Gotta go find my pedometer. I so need to get moving more than I am. It will also come in handy when I have to walk EVERYWHERE because I cannot afford to fuel up my car. I wish that I lived in a "walking" town and not in the "burbs". To get anywhere I need to drive at least a mile!

The animas were well behaved. Which is more than I can say about some of the humans. Some some parents cursing at their kids and a couple feeling out each others tonsils in the middle of the petting zoo. I guess they misunderstood the concept of "petting zoo". Ya think? We also watched as a lady changed her kids diaper on top of a picnic table. Where people eat. With others eating around her.
These are my favorite:
Maybe next time we will go to the circus!

Not that I really remember what Pi actually is, I just know that it's 3.14. Just wanted to act all smart and stuff. I never was very good in math. English was my stronger subject. As far as math goes, until this day, I still say that we just need the basics. Unless, of course, you plan on being a rocket scientist or something. I get along quite well with =,-.x,/ thank you very much. Plus, I'm great at percentages! Got to know my commissions, plus I definitely need to be able to figure out my Target sales!
I have been neglecting this blog but I have been stressing about having to sleep in the streets of Boston. I'm not sure if I mentioned it, but we will be going to Boston for 5 days next month. Not my idea. We just got another great fare on Spirit and D decided that he wanted to go to Beantown. Now, I really prefer going to DC. But since I always choose our travel destinations, I felt the need to let him choose. Just this once. Problem is, hotels are freakin' expensive in Boston! And Priceline is not cooperating! Maybe we can pitch a tent in Boston Commons. We'll see how this goes. For the 1st time ever, I'm not very excited about a trip!

I am so late! Not that I want to make a grand entrance or anything. I just have been soooo busy today with real life stuff. Anyhoo, if you are here for the Ulimate Blog Party, Welcome! My name is Lissete. I live in Miami with my hubby & 2 girls. You can read more about me here. I have been blogging for almost 2 years now. Actually, I just realized that my blogversary is coming up next week. I blog about my life. Nothing specific. Just whatever pops into my head. I do have a habit of making up words, but I'm sure that you can figure out what I'm trying to say! I have met a bunch of great ladies in this wonderful world of blogville and I hope to meet many more.
So again, welcome to my party. Grab a drink, some snacks and make yourself comfy. We're not all fancified here, so feel free to kick off your shoes.

So, here's to another 20 years. May it be in health, joy, & plenty!
Here's our song. Our "first dance" as man and wife song. I tried to figure out how to get a clip from our wedding video, but I'm not very computer savy. So this will have to do.
Happy Anniversary! I love you!!!

He was 37. I was 35.
He went with us to our pediatrician the day he died. I took Kari to her pediatrician the day I had my heart attack.
He had a heart attack in a grocery store. I had mine in a grocery store.
We were all together waiting for him outside the store. I was alone.
He died. I survived.
Modern medicine? Who knows. I was in the cath lab within 24 hours of my heart attack That was 6 years ago. Today they try to have you in for a cath within 1 hour. I like to think that it helped that I do not smoke. When D & I went to Niagara Falls, all the cigarette packages in Canada not only had a warning like the packages here in the US, but they also had graphic pictures depicting the effects of smoking. Hopefully kids are getting the message.
