I recently went to Missouri City Tx for a work training. Missouri City is a suburb of Houston. I was so excited to go. During the week, I had some time to visit the Houston Zoo. It was so different than the Phoenix Zoo. One of the animals, this creature in the above picture, really caught my eye. Very unusual lol... Another thing that was really different was their elephant exhibit. They had both adults and babies in the exhibit and just seemed to have a lot of freedom in their exhibit. It was neat to watch. I was really glad to be home. My dad and kids took turns dog/house sitting. Lisa

Last month we had training at work. It included learning about one of the helicopter companies we frequently use. We were told at the beginning of the week that we would have the opportunity to fly in the helicopter. I wanted nothing to do w/ that whatsoever. We go, have some lunch, watch a little presentation and then its time...who wants to go...So groups of two go...I think three before me. Then somewhere...out of nowhere...I asked the other chicken in the group...what if we just go? She was up for it, and so we did! I am proud of myself for having the courage to try something new, something uncomfortable. I got horribly "carsick" but I am really really glad that I went. I did it :)
