Seriously, there are no fast lanes where I live. I am a chick from the sticks--which would account for the lack of blogging activity. I enjoy normalcy and routine--continued blogging about it would only serve as a sleep aid! But here’s some not-so-routine things that have happened the past month.
Spring is here. We live in a farming community. It's wonderful seeing some fields greening up, farmers plowing their fields and seeing huge clods of overturned dirt. The weather has finally turned, and I'm able to get out and walk.
During Spring break Sunny's sister and niece were at my MIL's for 10 days. We haven't been able to see them for a couple of years. Our niece is the same age as Grace. They played and played and played. They got along so well, until the 'Sorry' game was pulled out, then the real Grace and Cassidy came out and...ahem...the real Gramies! (Whoever invented that game is evil...in my opinion!) I've never experienced a vacation while staying at home before, which is what it was like while everyone was here. But, alas, it had, to end sometime and now we've got back into our routine.
Chels was able to come for 5 days while they were here. We appreciate all the time we can spend with her. She is doing well and began management training for Safeway/Starbucks when she got back. As hard as it is having her live so far away, I'm glad that she is doing good and is stable in her job especially with this economy. I love that girl!
Sunny and I celebrated our 30th anniversary March 22. 30 years! I can honestly say it's been a fun ride, and I love him more today than I ever have. He's a wonderful husband and the girls have an awesome relationship with him.
We have started our own plumbing/heating business. Word is getting out that Sunny's back in business and he is beginning to pick up some jobs. Not quitting his 'day' job by any means, but who knows?...when the time is right for sure.
We celebrated my mom's 75th birthday at Reva's. Five of our seven siblings were able to be there. Altogether, there were 30 or so. It was nice getting to finally see my brother, Jack, who moved back to CO in December. He and his wife moved to NY just a couple months before we moved back to CO. (I took it personal, but now that he's back I can stop my therapy!!)
It's All now back to routine Good!
