Yesterday's entry was short, so now I'll fill in the highlights from the last year.
We spent Jan through Mar of 2011 with our oldest son and his wife. Then in April, we went to see our two youngest sons, and their wives. We got to take one of the grandkids to a baseball game, where the our team won and we were ALL happy. For Memorial Day, we stayed a week at the beach with my mother, and I got to do something I always wanted to do - go parasailing!! It was awesome. And my MOTHER went with me because DH was afraid, lol.
The sad part of that weekend was that our 19 year old peke passed away. We rescued her when she was 3 1/2. All of you with furbabies know how hard it is to let them go.....
In June, we went to daughter's new (old) house and had so much fun helping the grandkids there to paint and decorate their rooms. DH and DSIL put in a gorgeous mosaic tile floor in the master bath, using reclaimed ceramic tiles.
In August we went back to the two youngest sons' for another visit. Three of the grandkids went to the baseball game, this time. Since the grandkids rooted for different teams, we knew SOMEONE was not gonna be happy....but the fun of being at the game made up for it.
Last Aug and Sep found us in NY, visiting hubby's mom. There, we had some scary moments when we thought that hurricane Irene was going to hit. It did, but not where we were.
In November, hubby's mom came to visit us for Thanksgiving, and we took her back in mid-Dec, then rushed on to daughters' house to spend Christmas with her family.
A wonderful start to this year is that I have been able to visit with my half-sister. We last saw one another in 1976. And, we have a new grandbaby.
All the "on the road, again" moments, along with a stretched achilles tendon played havoc with my diet and exercise. However, I am, as I said yesterday, back again, and starting over. Reading back over this - wow, did I have a busy15 months!! And so many blessings to count.
