I'm stretched out on the couch with my dog she tore her ACL and had surgery yesterday. And it's drizzly with rain outside so it's a great day to eat brownies fresh from the oven on the couch with my girl

Yeah, it has been quiet, I've been busy losing weight and watching the Blackhawks win.

At least I don't have to put my air conditioner in my window yet!

We're back!

We're back from our "Miracle on Ice" cruise to Alaska (Carnival Miracle). Had lots of folks at the Meet and Greet, then had a group cocktail party the last night. Met a lot of fellow cruisers and had a great time on the cruise. This trip was my mom (92), my daughter, and me. Juneau was rainy and cold but the Mendenhall Glacier was beautiful. The lake was still covered with ice--one of the park rangers said she had never seen the lake still frozen this late in the spring! Skagway was cold and windy but no rain (yippee). Someone handed us tickets to the Skagway Street Car Tour. The tour was really interesting and I must admit that I probably would never have taken it if I hadn't been given the tixs! Next we cruised Glacier Bay--so beautiful, but a cold, gray, rainy day. Our final stop was Ketchikan and we had gorgeous clear sunny weather in the low 60's (that's 2 years in a row that I've had good weather there). Splurged a bit and bought a "northern lights" bracelet--really pretty. The food was good but not outstanding. Did indulge on the warm chocolate melting cake every night for dessert

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms! Have a special day on Sunday

Angie,

Welcome back......

Sounds like you had a great time. One of these days I will make it to Alaska, that is on my wish list....you need to post some pictures. I have seen some from other cruisers, but it is just so beautiful. My sister is taking her frist cruise to Alaska in July. They are really looking forward to going.

Glad your back....its been really quiet around here. Stephanie is gone to the World....Chuck has been pretty much missing in action. But now that the weather is better and warmer here, I will be busy with a lot of yard work.

We are thinking of putting the house on the market next year. So we need to get the yard in shape, new floors in both bathrooms and a new kitchen counter. So we are going to be focusing on a lot of house stuff in the next few months.

Wow, I guess I better go before I chat your ear off....

Have a good one

Actually, my room is upstairs and it was in the 80s for the past few days. Thinking this weekend or next week installing it.

Until then, going to enjoy the win the Blackhawks scored last night.

Hi Denise,

It sounds as though you'll be busy getting your house and yard ready to sell. It seems like just when you get things looking great, it's time to sell. Well, hope you have a few months to enjoy the results of your labor! Are you planning to move out of the area? I'm not sure I know how to post pictures here but can probably post some on the FB page...

Angie

Greetings from the Boardwalk! We spent the last three days at the Dark Side, at Portofino Bay, but their wifi is NOT free like it is here at least for DVC. We checked in and got our annual passes replaced with the new cards. Nice! Tap instead of fighting the machine into taking the paper ones! Then off to MK and Be Our Guest for dinner! If you like mussels, you HAVE to do the mussel appetizer! It's great! And Chuck, the hidden Mickey is back in place on Haunted Mansion!

No we will stay in the area...I would love to move out of Illinois, but still have a few years before we retire...just going to downsize...we want a townhome, so we have no outside yard work to do. I don't mind it, but we have a large lot and there is always lots of yard work to do. Its just becoming more difficult on us.

My weekend went fast, mainly because I had to work Saturday.

This next weekend I'm going to be out of town for my niece's graduation. Time flies, eh?

Well, I must say that when you're retired EVERY day goes by fast. Why didn't they fly by all those years I was working?
