So...As I Was Saying...

It seems like only yesterday that I blogged last, but if you are checking the date of my last post, you will totally disagree with me.  That's quite OK.

Hubby finally had his second surgery.  After a little surgery scare, things worked out for the best and he is mending very well but cannot return to work until next Monday.  (when can I watch the shows that I want to watch?)  The man is under strict orders not to do any heavy lifting and must take it easy, but alas, how does one hold a good man down?  If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.  And just for clarity, duct taping him to the bed was not successful at all.

For the first time ever in the history of my life, I had a 3 day cold.  No, not 7 days or 10 days, but only 3.  What was my secret?  Well, thanks to Laura Peach, I remembered to rub Vicks on the bottom of my feet last night, slept for 11 hours straight and woke up a new woman this morning.  Thanks to Laura for the tip and thanks to having the ability to post on Facebook from the comfort of my bed!

My daughter and SIL have purchased their very own first house.  It is a massive 5 bedroom, 3000 sq. ft home that will be a wonderful place for their family.  Never mind that it is 20 minutes away from here...really not a biggie, but it will be such a wonderful new chapter in their lives.

As for my son, he is thinking of putting down roots as well and buying a home of his own.   Does this mean that my babies are grown up and responsible young adults now?  Where did the last 25 years go to?  It was just yesterday that they both wore blanket sleepers with little feet and I was tucking them into their beds with Mr Bear and Figment.

I miss the open road and wish my hubby and I could just take off on a cross country RV trip...ahhh....what will the next chapter in my life bring?

Great news .. duct tape didnt work? How about some BIG elastic bands? OR better yet .. hide his pants and shoes .. how far could he go without them?

Mazel tov to the daughter/SIL on the new house .. 20 min is excellent AND if you are too tired to drive they have enough rooms for you to stay over! Wont Jack be thrilled?
