Today was DH's annual family reunion at our house. This year the yard is flooded in places and it was quite chilly. But we were up at 5 to put the turkeys in the smoker and get things started. We had a total of 31 who made it this year, some ... Read more
The car is packed, the snacks are made, everything is ready to go. Early in the morning I will get up and head to NC for the 3rd annual quilt retreat at Camp Cheerio. We are a group of online quilters who had never met until 2007 when we decid... Read more
When I woke up yesterday I found the ear piece of my glasses sitting is a very unusual and unnatural position. So, since it has been over 2 years since I had an exam, I called and made an appointment for this morning. She must have put extra d... Read more
Friday was our last day in Seattle. We went back to the Space Needle and toured the EMP (Experience Music Project) and Science Fiction Museums. DD was amazed at how old some of the music she loves really is. The SciFi museum is really great. ... Read more
MIL was still not feeling well, so we had another easy day. DH's cousin gave us a tour of his university (Northwestern). We had the dean of the new nursing school show us around their brand new building (MIL was a nurse for 45 years). It is a... Read more
Here is the 3rd day of our vacation, which keeps improving. MIL is getting tired so we are slowing down a bit. It was supposed to rain (surprising?) so we drove downtown to Ride the Duck. What is a duck? It is a WW2 amphibious vehicle. When... Read more
These are a bit late, but internet access was spotty for us.
Tuesday we started out by seeing the Klondike Museum State Park. It is a wonderful place about the gold rush, and be sure to see the movie if you go. Next we walked around Pio... Read more
True to form, our vacation is off to an adventurous start. In Birmingham the airline couldn't find our reservation. When we got to our gate in Atlanta, the attendant said it was moved to another gate, when we got there, it was in another termi... Read more
After 5 days on my antibiotics for the diverticulitis, I'm still not quite back to normal yet. The low residue diet doesn't provide a lot of substance, but helps with the discomfort. I rode 14 miles this morning, and probably should not have. ... Read more
Yesterday started out just great. Went for a short (18 miles) ride on my new bike, had a great lunch, took the grands to get back to school shoes. But as the day progressed, I just didn't feel well, and by 10 was cramping, had a fever and felt... Read more
What is life but one big adventure. You wake up in the morning and anything can happen.
We started slowly redecorating the house, made it through the bathrooms with out a divorce. That is good. Started on the Grandboys' playroom, got t... Read more
I think I am finally getting used to the braces. I have settled into a new routine of eating-cleaning and things are getting better. I still have difficulty with crunchy things and won't be able to bite into a fruit till they come off, but I c... Read more
I finally took the plunge and got braces again. Perhaps now I will quit cracking fillings and teeth. It has certainly been a long time (don't ask) since I have had braces and I had forgotten how uncomfortable they really are. Last time I had ... Read more
