DH off for supplies~~~~~

He will be gone for well over an hour so I am on my own with the kids.  They are all sleeping...but I will get them moving since we have some sunshine today.  Very pretty out but chilly and windy.  We will be heading back to Iowa tomorrow after one more night with Em.

I am going to do ribeyes and portabellos on the grill tonight.

Today I am sad because a friend of mine and fellow worker passed away the day after Christmas.  I am so very sorry for his family.  He was only 62 and had complications after knee surgery.  Today is his funeral at home.  I am there with them in spirit and have been thinking of his family everyday since I found out what had happened.  He and I have known each other for over 20 years and just recently have been moved into the same department.  We talked alot of retirement and how wonderful it will sad he won't be able to enjoy this great time in ones life.  It certainly has been a subject of mine and DH's conversation alot more now that this has happened to my friend.  May you rest in peace my friend and may your family heal quickly and remember all the good times they have shared with you always......

Until next time~~~~Travel safely


  1. Have a safe trip back to Iowa.

    We too talk about full timing all the time...Florida housing crash has us stuck for a bit. Life is too short to be tied down to a what we say.

    Sorry to hear about your co worker.

  2. Sam's Dad never retired either he was 61 when he died, Sam retired completely last April at 62, he is pacing the walls but hopefully one of these days we will be setting off on our adventure.Be safe out there life is so short. Sam & Donna..

  3. Sad news about your friend. My father never got the chance to retire. That has had a major impact on my belief in embracing life to the fullest and taking advantage of every opportunity to live it.

  4. so sorry to hear about your is each moment to the fullest!!

  5. So sorry about your friend. Life is so short and shorter for some. We need to embrace the days we do have.

  6. Sorry to hear about your friend. Every day is a gift. Life can be short and we need to make the most of it.

  7. So sorry to hear about your co-worker and friend. Just as everyone is saying life is really very short and you need to live each day like it's your last. We had a friend pass away after complications from knee surgery as well. He was an airline pilot and was only 57.. You never know what's going to be thrown at you.

    Hope you have a safe trip back to Iowa and you miss the bad weather. We left Kansas City in freezing temps and rain.

    Be safe and enjoy life.
