Back In The Saddle (I Hope!)

I’ve been on a somewhat self-imposed blog break for several reasons.    First of all, my husband has been on vacation for the past 3 weeks….let me just say, he can never retire!   My goodness, did that ever upset my little routine!    I enjoy him being home but enough is enough Annoyed!     Then my mom had a fall which meant time spent in the ER but we were lucky that she only came out with a bruised forehead and black eye.   I came down with a terrible cold on Christmas Day and am just now getting over it….suffice it to say that I’ve just not felt like doing anything!

I’ve had a few little things I’ve been wanting to do around the house and now that he (finally) went back to work and I’m hopefully on the road to feeling better, I’m ready to get started on doing some little projects.    One thing I’ve been wanting to make is a burlap runner for our dining room table.    I bought a length of burlap today for that as well as some fabric to recover a lampshade.     Just a few things to make some little changes around the house.     Just as soon as I get these two things done, I’ll be sure to share them with you.

My grandchildren start back to school tomorrow.    I’ve kept Taylor a good bit, Jackson stayed at work with his mom and dad (they own a business here in town).     Today was her last day with me so we did some special things….she painted a birdhouse and we went to lunch at her favorite restaurant.     I love that she likes spending time with me (and her Pop) as I’m sure there will come a day in a few years she won’t think it’s “cool” to be with us.     So for now, I’m going to enjoy every minute.

On a different note, we are all big Auburn fans except for my my son-in-law who is a huge Alabama fan.    He’s actually in Miami for the Alabama-Notre Dame game tonight.    He flew down with his brother and two other guys…none of them had tickets for the game.     My daughter just called and he was able to buy a ticket….to the tune of $500!     Thankfully he got some Christmas money from his parents so that’s how he spent that.     

It feels good to be back….I’ve missed you all!

Glad to see you back, Judy! Oh, I know how you feel with the hubby home. I told mine the other day {when he was working from home} that he needs to get a hobby. : ) He was working from home again today, but I'm hoping he is out of the house tomorrow!

Judy-Nice to see you back. When MyHero took early retirement I went back to work- just about drove me nuts. I felt like I was being "watched" all the time. When he went back to work part time I retired again....lol I know 'zackly what you are talking about, sister!

Glad your Mom is okay and glad to see you back here again. xo Diana

Glad to hear that you are feeling better. My SIL is also at the game (I sure hope your SIL got a good ticket...someone stole my SIL and his parents tickets right out of his fathers front pocket...I'm sure they were selling them...they were able to have those canceled and got new ones...so this means someone bought three tickets that are no longer good)...what a dummer! Don't know about y'all, but we are cheering on the IRISH!!! Since you like to paint…then you need to come by and enter my Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint GIVEAWAY…hope to ya there!!!

Glad you are back! I missed you too.
My kids spend a lot of time with their grandma, and it even makes me a little jealous - she is so cool (and I am not?) :O
But I keep reminding myself that they are all 'catching up" for the time she had to work and could not see them much.
Hope to see some of your lovely projects soon... Stay well.

So glad you got back on the horse!! :)
I had to chuckle about the husband being home situation!
Looking forward to seeing your creations.
