Stress

I've been pretty stressed out lately. I don't know if it has to do with hormones, or work, or my husband, or the state of the world today, but the stress has been there. Sometimes, I find myself thinking about running away to a tiny house. I mean, I have you seen that show? Tiny […]

Kayaking

Since Lia came to visit her brothers, there were things that they did together that I didn’t take pardon. Kayaking was one of those. The kids all got into the rental car, and took off towards Where they were going to rent kayaks at. Rod and I followed in the truck, because I wanted to […]

Technical Difficulties

Here we are back in the UP.  It is a well needed vacation, I was getting a bit frazzled in my day to day.  My heart longs for this place when I am not here.  Sometimes a little, and sometimes a lot.  So, we are back!  Wednesday night around midnight I woke my husband up […]

Tonight

Tonight we had Sterling’s birthday celebration.  Rod made it home from Baton Rouge and for once we all ate supper together.  It was nice to have everyone together for one evening.  I enjoyed spending the time with each of them.  Rod flies out to Michigan in the morning, lucky guy.  The boys head back to […]

Last Day

Well, here it is, the last day in our little vacation get away.  Tomorrow we will leave and head home to Mississippi.  There is ice on the roads down there so hopefully we will have an uneventful trip.  The last day is always filled with cleaning and packing and it just makes it oh so […]

Last Ride

Quite a Day

Yesterday was a lazy day.  We are currently under a lake effect snow advisory and it was really snowing yesterday.  And cold!  So, we stayed home and watched movies. It was a nice relaxing day.   This morning, Rod decided he had to wake up early so that we could go out.  Ok.  I don’t […]

Perspective

As I sit here in my little house up North, supper is cooking in the oven and I have no idea where Rod and Sterling are.  They left for a ride around 3:30 this afternoon and I took off for a walk to the Lake.  Spencer has been keeping to himself the entire time we […]

146 Miles

Today my son and my husband wanted to go riding.  They absolutely love riding and usually want me to come with them.  I didn’t wake up wanting to ride and frankly Rod was irritating me due to a misunderstanding from the night before.  I wasn’t going to go at all.  Then I thought about my […]
