vacation   Leave a comment

I have a week’s vacation coming up in September and I am still thinking of going to Arizona and Utah.
Not sure if my husband will go, but I am betting he won’t want to because he didn’t want to go in May over my birthday.

although I bet if I said I wanted to go back to Florida to the beach, he would definitely be up for that.

I could ask one of my sister’s to go, or even a friend……….or go by myself.
The only downside is I think September is probably going to be incredibly hot to be heading west.

Still pondering it though………

upcoming birthdays   Leave a comment

I have a lot of birthdays to buy for in the next  8 to 10 weeks.
My grand-daughter Keira’s birthday is Monday but we will be having the party on Sunday

she will be 5

It is also father’s day that day, so I should probably buy my husband something for that?

my brother in law’s birthday was June 4th and my husband and I are going to take him and his wife out for dinner in the next night or two.

He just turned 56

My sister is turning 62 on July 6th
My sister-in-law will be turning 50 on July 18th

My niece will be turning 50 on July 15th

a friend of mine also will be having a birthday on July 15th

My husband’s birthday is July 25th and we will be going out on our annual boat trip at the reservoir

and then my sister’s birthday is August 1st and she will be 66

and then my daughter in law’s birthday will be August 16th

My nephew will be turning 32 in July as well

and then thankfully there will not be any more birthday’s to celebrate until my grand daughters in November, and my baby sister’s too

Have I forgotten anyone?

goodness……all I can see are dollar signs flashing before my eyes.
Guess I best get to shopping.

old friends/new friends   Leave a comment

in the past month we have met up accidentally with some friends that we use to hang out with occasionally.

Both times were in Wilton when we were attending some kind of function for my soon to be five-year old grand-daughter.

they said to us the first time, “We should go out to dinner some time”  and we agreed.
Then the woman said to me again last night “We should get together some time”
And I agreed again.
it would be fun.
Enjoyable and I am sure we will do it.
But I almost felt like I was being forced last night when she said “We really should get together some time”
Okay, I agree but please don’t force the issue because to me that is just a turn off.
I don’t want my time demanded like that.
Does this make sense?
my down time, what little I get, it quite precious to me.
I am not the kind of person who needs to have every minute of every day filled with something to do.

quiet time, me time, is very rare and I don’t want anyone infringing on that.

But some day when we do get together with them, it will be enjoyable.

Brad Paisley revisited   Leave a comment

I know I talked about this new CD of Brad Paisley’s a week or so ago.
The more I listen to it the more I love it.
I rarely listen to anything else.
It is so amazing how one man can write such great songs.
I take my hat off to him.
It also makes me want to buy every other CD he has put out.
I have one “Fifth Gear” and it is a great CD too.
I become a bigger Brad Paisley fan every day.
The man is quite gifted.
And when he writes those love songs for his wife
It just pulls at my heart-strings.
