Wednesday December 17, 2008

I got up this morning and had coffee with the guys in the rally hall. Stella had gotten up and taken Cassie for her morning walk, so that was already out of the way. We had a few things to pick up and put away this morning, so after this was done, we loaded up the few things that we were taking with us and left for home. Stella had some things to do in the doctor's office today, so we had decided to go home for the day. It is also Cameron's birthday, so we were taking him out tonight.

We got home without any incidents, but found that Stella's car wouldn't go into gear. We had found a transmission fluid leak last week when she had the oil changed, and it apparently had leaked out since then. She just took the truck to go to work. I stayed at the house while she was gone. I played on the computer and watched some television (napped) until about 4 o'clock when I took a shower and got ready to take Cam out. Stella came home and we gathered our stuff up and went to Texas City to get Cameron and Tyler.

He wanted to go to Gringo's restaurant for his birthday dinner, but when we got there, the parking lot was completely full with several cars parked across the street in the mall parking lot. We gave him the choice of where else to go and he chose Ryan's. We had a very enjoyable meal with the boys.

We went back to their house and watched Cam open his presents. He got a new game for their Wii, a radio for his room and a video game.

After going home to pick up Cassie, we made an easy trip back to the park, and arrived a little after 10. I stayed up until almost 11 o'clock tonight. I'm getting better at staying up, and slept until after 7. I guess I'm finally getting the hang of being retired and changing my sleep habits.

So long for now.....
