No idea...

You ever wonder why people act the way they do or try to get away with things? I have no idea either. It amazes me how people take their jobs, some serious or just en0ugh to get by. I know we all take short cuts every now and then and there are days where u don't feel like working but you can't afford not to miss. Yesterday was my day of NOT wanting to come to work. I woke up looking forward to summer!!! Not a great way to start off the month of February...

I have some news I would like to share. I was fortunate to play college basketball at a very prestige university, Wayland Baptist: Flying Queens. Here is a little about their program:

Flying Queens Basketball - Women
17 NAIA National Tourney appearances
NAIA National Runner-up in '86, '92
1997 Final Four appearance
10 AAU national championships
Won more games (1,421) than any other women’s collegiate program
28 NAIA All-Americans

At that school the girls basketball program ran the school...we had our own mascot, team name (different than the other team sports: Pioneers), own planes to travel to our of town games, plus many more advantages. But I am not here to brag, the school opened in 1909, this year for the homecoming the University will be celebrating 100 years and as well as honoring the top 50 womens basketball team in the last 100 years and I am very very proud to say that our 98-99 team will be honored as one of the top 50 teams of Flying Queens Basketball program!!! You don't know how important this is to me...!! I can't wait for Feb. 21st!!! To see and meet all the other Flying Queens and you know what...Marsha Sharp was a Flying Queen Bee...that's right on the JV but then later on the Varsity...so that goes to show that not all great coaches were great players as well. I am soooo looking forward to that weekend, I have already been in contact w/one of my teammates Shaun Weaver, awesome point guard from Sudan TX (state championship team and MVP). You know to me I had to grow up, build a lot of character. But I was on a team full of the top Panhandle girls all combined on one team, how good were we....very good!!! hahah ;) I am looking forward to talk and reminise about the glory days w/girls I haven't seen in quit sometime.

Once a Queen...Always a Queen!!!

Until next time...Mamabotos!!!

P.S. Its also where I met the love of my life...Botos. We have been together for a total of 13 1/2 years (dated 7 1/2 and been married for 5 1/2 !!) I love you babe...no wonder they call Wayland Baptist University...WEDDING BELLS UNIVERSITY!!!
