Dear cold/allergies/sinus infection,
You have invaded our home for the last two weeks. Some days the migraines you have brought have made us unable to function. Lasting for days and days. It is now time for you to visit others. Please leave. Nuff said....

Signed one tired Mom........

Some gave all.......

Happy Veterans Day to our millions of military personal. Past and present. The sacrifices that you make as well as the family you leave behind, are ones us civilians will never fully comprehend. There are not enough words to thank you. You deserve more than you sometimes receive.

I pray where ever you go today that you are treated like the Hero you deserve to be treated as.

Thank You!

I think as Moms we forget to take the time out to do something fun just for us. It doesn't have to be anything grand. It could just be enjoying a cup of coffee by yourself or with friends. Or maybe just getting your nails done. A small activity to recharge your batteries. Yesterday I had a rare chance to hang out with some great friends. Our county was sponsoring a tour of local shops in the area to visit. The shops would offer special deals and sometimes games to play. Snacks and beverages completed the tour. While we girls all had a rare opportunity to get out,our locals shops got our business. Win. Win. To me the best part of the tour was checking out new places many of which I have never heard about. We all spent the day laughing and talking about making this an annual event. Although the tour was designed to help local businesses it was us it helped more.

Reconnect. Recharge.

Flashback Friday

What was your favorite thing about the 80's?
Mine would have to be the movies. Plain and simple. Some of the best movies came out in the 80's. Ok. Maybe just in my mind. But seriously. Star Wars Return of the Jedi. ET. The Goonies. The Adventures in Babysitting. Dirty Dancing. The Outsiders. Many John Hughes's films. A man who defined 80's films from Uncle Buck to The Breakfast Club. I'm honestly not a fan of many movies today between the plots and violence. Blah! Horrible.

So tell me your favorite thing.........

Throwback Thursday

A little throwback picture from our hunting cabin that was taken a year ago. I realize most people use a lot older pictures for throwback Thursday. One of the many reasons I haven't been blogging is we lost the family hunting cabin in a fire this past winter. It unfortunately burnt completely to the ground. We were not able to save anything. We are extremely grateful that the two people who happened to be at the cabin that fateful weekend made it out alive. Barely. Hubby and the rest of the family have been spending many weekends up in the mountains trying to rebuild it. My children miss the place dearly. Pictures and memories.

Wordless Wednesday~candy

Trick or treat! Or as I like to call it"sending your children out to beg your neighbors for candy that you can eat when they go to bed." My son's candy stash after Halloween. Anyone have recipes that use Halloween candy?
