Proud Mama Updates of Regina's Family

My oldest son MM (Military Man) works over night security in a hotel in Dallas. He sent me a text at 1:36am yesterday morning which said simply, "I saved a life". This is not something you every day! Oh, Just in case you were wondering I was already awake because my daughter in New York had just called at 1am to tell the Diva Happy Birthday. Yes, yes I know my children keep very strange hours... but I digress.
So I texted MM back to find out what was going on. This is the conversation:
MM - I saved a life
Me - What happened?
MM - A guy almost died from smoke inhalation
Me - wow! Was there a fire in the hotel?
MM - No a drunk guy left a hot pocket in the microwave for 80 minutes and fell asleep
Me - What an idiot.
MM - Yeah, long story short he wasn't responsive to my knocking so i went in and could hardly see it was so much smoke, got him out and turned him over to the fire department
Me - R U ok?
MM- I'm fine
Me - All right
MM - Talk to you later
Me - Ok
Now, you may think this conversation short and cryptic but we were texting and since I don't have a qwerty keyboard (I so want a BLACKBERRY! Again I digress...) on my phone it is a little difficult! But any way when he came by the house yesterday evening he filled in any blanks. Earlier he saw the drunk guy go to the vending machine and get a hot pocket. Later, the smoke alarm was going off so he went to investigate. He saw the smoke coming from under the door and started knocking. You can fill in the rest from the above conversation. But basically the firemen told him if that guy had been in there 5 minutes longer he would have died of smoke inhalation!
Wow! I am so proud of my baby!!

The young Diva (I can no longer call her Diva In Training because I think she has mastered the training course!!) who turned 15 yesterday 1/12/09 (HAPPY BIRTHDAY DIVA!!!) got a letter from People To People International in Washington D.C. recently. The letter was an invitation to the People To People Student Ambassadors Program. The Diva was invited to be a Student Ambassador and take a trip to England and France! I am not sure how her name was selected but because of her grades in school and her citizenship and conduct she was asked to be part of this program. She of course asked around and found out that she was the only one selected in her class. So we are going to the informational meeting next week! She is excited! I will keep you all informed and once I find out the pricing you all can feel free to contribute to her trip fund!

Last update for today is simply that Lady T (Chef In Training) is doing great in her courses and currently has a GPA of 3.32! She is currently in the baking class and has been bringing delicious breads by the house daily!
~SIGH~ You gotta love this bunch!!!!!!!! I am a proud mama!

That is all for now!

Wow- you should be proud!! Good job to Military Man- that's pretty exciting!

And I just can't believe this pictures of the Diva- she looks like a young woman now. And what an accomplishment!! I hope she'll be able to go.

And I think Lady T should send me some of her baking so I can check and see if it really is that good or if you're just a biased and proud mama ;)

What wonderful blessings. When my two are happy and content, most is right with my world.

But I have to confess that I pay special attention to Lady T. I would cook in my sleep if I could. What a treat to go to school for it.
