50 years

So, I haven't been around again for a while.  I haven't really been busy, I think I'm over blogging, ha! I do have some things to say/tell, I just have to see if I can get myself to write it.

You see the title, 50 years?  I got a letter in the mail on Saturday from my elementary school alumini informing me that that's how long it's been since I graduated from 8th grade.  WHAT!!!  It was so kind of them to remind me of that - not!

Anyhow, I guess every year they have an alumini picnic and they invited me.  I can't even imagine how they found me.  It was kind of crazy...  I won't go.  I mean I don't even go to my high school reunions although everyone I told about this wants me to go.  I don't even remember hardly anyone from way back then.

Although an interesting fact, one of the women that is on the committee that I graduated with, is married to a guy who was one of my boyfriends in high school.  She didn't go to the same school we went to.  I found out about this several years ago and couldn't believe it. I admit it would be interesting to find out how they found each other.   When people say it's a small world all I can say is - hell yes it is ;-)

Happy Easter

I hope everyone has a great Easter.

The weather here has been up and down.  Cold then kinda warm.

The other day it was in the 30's and I wanted to sit on the patio.  I got a heater from a friend's husband.  It didn't make it warm but I was able to sit and read for a few hours.  I can't wait until I can open the windows!

Random Thoughts

1.  Nothing pretty much is going on around here.

2.  The Dinner Friends recently went out for Magellan's birthday at The Outback.  Although a couple were on vacation the month of February.  I think everyone should be back for next month's dinner though.

3.  So far I haven't seen anyone on The Voice that's a clear winner like the last two years.  However, the show just started and we'll see.  I hope it doesn't happen though, I would like there to be a little suspense otherwise what is the point in watching!

4.  I can hardly stand this political season we are having.  I almost wish November was here already but then it would be close to me not being able to sit on the patio and I certainly don't want to wish that away, lol.

5.  Speaking of the patio, it looks like next week we might get some warmer weather.  Yay!!

That's about all I can think of to life has been boring!

Hello out there.

Again, I haven't written much.  I knew there was a reason I didn't want to go on facebook.  I've fallen into the rabbit hole, ha!

Actually not much has been going on around here.  Winter, blech!  Although I'm sure it's the same all over the country our winter hasn't been so bad. I feel kind of bad for the guy that does our snow, he's not making much money this year.   I'm still looking forward to spring so I can sit on the patio.

No vacation plans this year yet but we had our taxes done already so I have to get going before it gets too hot.  We miss not going to Vegas.

I haven't even gone out with my Dinner Friends this year,  I will be doing that soon. 

So see...I really have nothing to say but I'm still here..

The old and the new

So, Happy New Year (even though it's January 6th, a little late;-)

We had a pretty great Christmas.  Son and dil spent around 2 weeks.  One week they stayed at her mom's and the second week with us.  Although I do use that term loosely.  They spent a lot of time with friends which was good.

We did have an eventful Christmas weekend.  We spent Christmas Day at dil's mother's house.  Then Saturday, we took my brother, his wife, son and dil to a fancy restaurant.  Then Sunday, hippie and I went to an afternoon wedding reception. 

The weather was unusually warm over the holidays although in the past few days it has finally changed.  It's gotten colder and we did get a smattering of snow.  I'll take it though considering how it was the last two years. 

I hope everyone had a great holiday.

I haven't been around much.  Life has gotten in the way, lol.

Right after I wrote my last post I got a terrible cold that I had for more than 2 weeks, ugh!

Son and daughter-in-law came to town and I saw son for about 10 minutes the whole time they were here.  I talked to dil through the bedroom door, ha!  I didn't want either of them to catch what I had.  They stayed at her mom's house (her mom was in NY).  Hippie, son and dil went to my brother's for Thanksgiving while I stayed home and coughed and slept.  It wasn't a great Thanksgiving at least for me.

Also, I had some doctor stuff going on. 

I've been trying to get it together for Christmas.  I finally got my Christmas cards out last week.  (I usually send them out Dec. 1)..

I wasn't really into decorating.  Hippie knows how much I love having them up though.  He started putting some of them up for me which I was thankful for.  He really is too good to me sometimes ;-)  Everything isn't all up but it's good enough.

I think I've turned into my mother.  I never thought I would, but we put up one of her little trees this year instead of our big one. 

I also got a new snowman window this year.  I really love it.

Son and dil will be coming for Christmas.  Hopefully, everything will go good then.  I don't think I'll be blogging again until the new year but you never know.  hah!
