Still here...

It was brought to my attention through several emails today that I haven't posted.
I really haven't had anything positive to say...and like my mom always used to tell me...if you don't have anything nice to say....well you know the rest.
Back to the grind last week and normal frustrations with that just got the best of me...
so much so that we have considered going to Iceland...
No really, I found a great deal to go to Iceland for a long weekend...
It was tempting...still is as the tour that I was looking at included glacier hiking and a trip to see the northern lights...both of which are on my bucket list.
We aren't going....hubby's truck needed to be fixed and honestly I am not sure that four days would have been enough...but now I know that it's a three hour plane ride and may get moved up on my list of places the for.
It has been a low key weekend this weekend...which is nice...
Gave the kitties a bath- so now they smell pretty...are mostly over the trauma and are snuggly again....
I am still looking for that perfect dress for the meeting at the end of the month.
That's about it...know that I am still reading and commenting when I can...I think of you all often and wish you love and peace...
Hugs to you all...


  1. i hope your week goes well. life here is less than wonderful but i'm trying to look on the bright side of things.

    iceland, eh? sounds like a blast. how is it only 3 hours away though? that's amazing!

  2. From what I understand eating in Iceland is expensive [I don't know why that tidbit sticks in my head] so 4 days may be just perfect. heehee

    It is nice that you have that wonderful party to look forward to at the end of the month. I love getting all dressed up and being on Pooldad's arm to go to a party. So much fun. I can't wait to see the dress you find. [Best thing about having teenage girls - they still need to buy formal gowns. That is one kind of shopping I like.]

    Take care and make sure you get that smile a day in :) It really helps. Promise.

  3. Always great to see a post from you girl. We all have weeks like you mentioned and sometimes they string together. Don't know about Iceland, seems colder than where I am so that would not work for this old guy. Hang in there and know we think of you often too and are sending warm, loving thoughts your way.

  4. It blows my mind that Iceland could be considered a weekend getaway. How very cool (or freezing cold)

    Not sure I would be brave enough to try to bathe our cat. I think she would not be impressed

  5. Hi Col. Even though you're not feeling at your best, it's still good to see you appearing today! Don't worry too much about us at the moment. You know by now that we're always here waiting for you when you're ready. `Try to give yourself a little pampering if you can. Anyway, I hope your spirits lift soon, and wishing you and hubby a very happy, healthy and peaceful new year my friend.
