Midland Texas ~ Who'd a thunk!!!!

We have been here in Midland/Odessa area for almost 2 weeks to visit our daughter and her family.  That is just about the only reason to come here unless you are looking for work.  There is plenty of jobs here and the unemployment rate is at about 3%.  Mostly it is oil field workers and anything associated with that.  And that is why my daughter is here because her husband is in the oil business.  They try to make this a pleasant enough place, tons of stores, restaurants and some attractions but the landscape is dirty, the wind blows a lot of dust around and it is HOT!... not to mention the water is not fit to drink.  Most everyone has to buy bottled water.  So why am I here ~ Family which is so very important to us...
Yummo ~ Mexican
When we got here we just had to go get some of that great Tex Mex food which I love so dearly so out we headed out with our girls to Jorges' Mexican Restaurant for some very yummy food...  After last years eat fest from Florida to Nova Scotia, 2 bad knee replacement surgeries (which kept me from exercising) and a years hard work taking off the weight and getting healthy it was my first Mexican food in a long long time... but oh it was so worth it ~ YUMMOLICIOUS♥  We really didn't go crazy but we did have some delicious food....
We also celebrated my honey's birthday on the 24th.... With friends & family we went out to eat at a GREAT Chinese Buffet (his favorite food) and to work off some of the calories we went bowling after.  What fun we had ~ we haven't bowled in years except for WII bowling.  It was a riot trying to remember how to throw the ball with out bouncing it out about 10 feet onto the lane... soon around the 3rd game we finally started to play better.  This is something we both hope to do more often. (You know how I love showing you food... tee hee)
 
We had the pleasure of attending our oldest grand daughters, Hannah, Spring Concert at the Robert E.Lee High School in Midland.  She is a drummer in the band and it was fun to see all the kids playing so beautifully.  The best part was when all the grades got together and played the school song "Dixie for the graduating seniors.  Funny but when I was in High School at Dixie Hollins in Florida ~ that was our school song too... brought  back so many memories.

So mostly we have been spending a lot of quality time together with our little ones and enjoying every minute of it. Going to try and start seeing some of the attractions in this area this next week!
Come on back and follow our adventures...
Have Fun & Travel Safe

You can have the Tex-Mex. I'd prefer the Chinese buffet. :)

It sounds like you're enjoying your visit, despite the heat, dirt, and bad water. The Tex-Mex food looked so good! Stay away from that wind.
