Long weekend, deployment update, and blog award

Where to start? We went to Yosemite for the Memorial day weekend, and had a great time. Boy are we exhaused. A lot of hiking, bike riding, and walking. It is a tradition to go with my husband’s family every year for this long weekend. My husband’s current deployment orders to go to Afghanistan were cancelled the day before, so he got to go. I am so glad that he didn’t have to miss out on the fun. Now we {Read More}

exercise

On another note, I have gone jogging every morning this week. It feels so good. I know I can keep this up. This will certainly help my weight loss goals. **** I often will link to things on Amazon.

plane crash in Montana

I just found out that I knew some of the people that were killed in the plane crash in Montana. It is so sad, and my thoughts are with their families and loved ones.

mail

I don’t like getting the mail from the mailbox. Any one else? Once I get the mail out of the box, that means that I have to sort it and do something with it. As long as it stays in the box, I can ignore it. I like to ignore it for as long as possible. **** I often will link to things on Amazon.

not posting much

I haven’t posted much I guess because I have been working more. That is good for our household economy, but not good for my household projects as they don’t get worked on. Oh well. I am sure I will start posting more as things change with my husbands job and possible deployment. My job business is always changing too, so I will get back to projects soon.

exercise

Megan and I have been jogging/walking every night together. It started as me wanting to go walking, and I invited her to come with me and she agreed. Then it turned into a good time for us to talk about the trouble that she is having with friends at school, and finally meshed into us both wanting to be able to jog farther. We are slowly increasing the distance that we jog, and then we walk the rest of the {Read More}

fun

The kids and I went to see High School Musical 3 this weekend. It was very good. I recommend it as a fun family movie. **** I often will link to things on Amazon. These are usually affiliate links that will pay me a couple of dollars if you happen to buy something while there.

Halloween

Megan was an Indian and Conor was a Jedi apprentice. Easy home made costumes. **** I often will link to things on Amazon. These are usually affiliate links that will pay me a couple of dollars if you happen to buy something while there.

Keep in touch with the older generation

I came up with this great idea to keep in touch with the older generation. It is regarding much older people, specifically, my grandmother who is 90. She lives in a retirement complex, and my grandfather is currently next door in a skilled nursing facility as his health has not been good lately. I know that my grandmother misses him, and staying connected to family is very high on her list of important things in this stage of life. I {Read More}
