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 ! 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!
