Mountain High

This past weekend hubby, the "girls" (our 2 yellow labs) and I went to the mountains for the weekend. It was crappy weather, but a great weekend!

I used to be a "shore" person, but as I've gotten older I have come to really love the mountains. He converted me!

We got a call on Sat. morning from "cheergirlie" could she come and stay the night with us? That was a nice surprise! :) She got there around 7 PM and left the next morning just before 11AM as she had to cheer at a basketball game that afternoon. She came just long enough to have 3 s'mores over the fire and to have breakfast with us.

It usually takes us just over 2 hrs. to get there so it is not an unbearable drive- decent highways etc.

Our time @ the cabin always goes bye way too quickly as do all days off!

Little by little we have been making some  much needed improvements.  Hubby is seriously thinking of some major renovations in the not too distant future. He has to crunch some numbers to see what is possible. Aside from updating with hand me down furniture and rugs we haven't really sunk a lot of $ into it up until this point. There is a Lowe's nearby which we go through to get ideas of what we could do.

Hopefully we can make some improvements- the nicer it is the more I am inclined to go there- and the more we go there the happier hubby is- he absolutely loves it there!

Hello 2013!

Today it was back to work after a nice 10 day break for the holidays...
Back to the grind....


My day so far has been unbelievably busy- so NOT the way I wanted to *ease back in*

2012 over all was ok- our oldest got married to a really nice guy and our younger daughter met the guy who just may be "the one" & I really like him! What I especially like is how happy 2012 was for  my girls!!!   :)

There were some challenges in 2012 though... and I won't get specific but if my son is single again you could count me a happy woman.

But as I have said previously I am on a "need to know basis" and he doesn't think I need to know.

All in all- aside from the good times for my girls and the GREAT adjustment hubby and I have made as empty- nesters-

much of the remainder of 2012 was stressful for me and I am happy to see it go.

So I look forward to 2013 optimistically and hope and pray for a better year... for ALL of us!
