So with Memorial Day upon us, I always think of my mom. If I was in Oregon, I would be going to the cemetery to put flowers on her grave. I know she's not there but it's more for me than for her. I do miss her but I know she would be proud of me and what I've done and how far I've come in life. I hope to one day have a family to be able to tell my kids about her and the things that she taught me. Both her and Dad always let me dream and go for my dreams. I'm thankful for that support.

I would love for Dad to come and experience some of the things I have done in my life. I would love it if he could travel with me to Europe and I would love to take him to a NASCAR race but I don't know if he would love it as much as I do. My number one thing I want to do before I die (on my top ten list of things I want to do before I die) is to drive a NASCAR just once around the track. My favorite driver is Dale Earnhardt, Jr. I also like Casey Mears and Tony Stewart and possibly Kasey Kahne. For Bucsh series, I like Truex and Lewis (both jrs).

Anyway- I digress.... (being Rose). I'll explain later about being a Rose in life.

Have a great weekend!!!

Working out the kinks

So I've never done a blog before and I couldn't remember my login or password for the life of me!! I finally figured it out was able to figure out how to post again. I'm looking forward to the Memorial weekend coming up. I am going to sit by the pool and spend time with family. Memorial weekend always makes me think summer is here- although with the heat here in Arizona, I think it's been summer for a couple of weeks now. I travel a lot around the state during the summer and am looking forward to that. I'm also heading out to Ohio and Washington DC for work. DC lets me also spend time with some of my favorite family. So I'll be able to see them for a few days.

Summer also lets me go to more baseball games. I've never been a baseball fan until I moved to Arizona and attended a Dbacks game. I love the social nature of the game. I couldn't watch it on TV because you miss the interaction of the audience around you. I love attending the games.

Life and Times of Lizard

I am just starting a blog after I visited my friend Ang's blog. I hope to keep my friends and family updated on my life- no matter where I am.

Right now I'm still living in Arizona. I still work for the same company and I finally purchased a new vehicle that actually has A/C!

Not much is going on in my life right now. I'm getting ready to go to Ohio for a conference with work in two weeks. I finished my scrapbook up to Jan. of this year and I'm hanging out with family over memorial weekend.
