Hello Friends, 

It’s been a while since I’ve said hello and I apologize for that. Strike it up to the business of life and well, just flat out laziness when it comes to my blog but, I’m hoping to change that. Actually, I’m hoping to change a few things. I’ll tell you about that in a different post. In the past I have done YouTube videos sharing my weekends on a Sunday morning video but I’ve decided I like putting it on my blog So, I thought I would share this past weekend with you and what we did.. 

For once it was actually a nice quiet weekend which, for those of you who know me is a real rarity in our lives. But this weekend I truly enjoyed myself. The only thing that was missing was being able to attend Mass but my body seems to predict most of what I do and don’t do whether my mind agrees or not. 

Being I wasn’t feeling up to par to go out anywhere, on Saturday night we had our best friends Linda and Bill over for some coffee and fun. We played this card game called “bulls*it”. Yes you read that right. It was so much fun! We had a lot of laughs and played quite a few hands.

On Sunday, it was just Lou and I and the four legged kiddos. We didn’t do much at all . I did my usual morning stuff like, feed the dogs, clean the kitchen, make the bed but other than that I pretty much lazed around the house for most of the day doing what I wanted.  We actually sat in quiet for a long time watching the kiddos play then Lou and I played some Gin Rummy. He always wins! but that’s okay, we haven’t done that together in a long, long time. It’s the little things people. 

I spent a lot of time in the morning catching up on my reading. I’ve started a five year spiritual reading journey and I needed to get caught up and I surely did!

No, we didn’t watch the Super Bowl. My team wasn’t in it and I just well, couldn’t ‘get into it ‘ this year so instead, Sunday night I spent working on my crochet and catching up on the few TV shows I had on my DVR. It was a nice quiet weekend with no real cooking to do because I had so many left overs. Score!

Thank you for reading my post and please stay tuned to my blog as I will be adding more posts this week. 

I hope you all had an enjoyable peaceful weekend.

Saturdays Snippets & A Little More

Saturday morning my husband and I had lots of errands to run but this time running errands was kind of fun because something happened that hasn’t happened in a long time. You see, my husband has been through nine back surgeries since 2005 and the last two of them were almost complete reconstructions of the spine. As one would imagine, that leaves a person in a lot of pain, unable to do most things they used too and recovery from the last two is long and slow.

This Saturday my husband decided he wanted to join me and I was so happy he did. It’s the little things in life we take for granted but when they aren’t there anymore we miss them. At least I do. I can’t tell  you how nice it was sitting on the passenger side of the car as my husband drove us to all our errands. So what did we do?

Well first we had to go to vote because it was the Republican Primaries here in South Carolina. I can not tell you how grateful I am that it’s all over. My phone has finally stopped ringing! But one of the nicest things we did while waiting online and as we went a long doing other errands was….. holding hands..

Its been a very long time since we’ve been able to walk a little bit and hold hands while doing it. Then we stopped at the cleaners so I could pick up our down comforter, next the post office, after that, Walgreens so I could make a return and an exchange and lastly we went to the grocery store where, while standing in line to have lunch meat cut my husband had his arm around me and I got some kisses too. It felt like the early days of our marriage.

The best part of all this was…… the laughs.

My husband and I have always been able to have fun with lots of laughs doing the most mundane things and it was so wonderful for me to see that despite all we go through with our health and life itself we can still have fun doing almost nothing and laugh while we’re doing it. I always told him I married him cause he makes me laugh. Of course I would tell him I was just kidding but secretly, thats’ one of the reasons (smiles).

You just never realize how you can miss the tiniest things in a relationship until they are taken from you but when you get them back it feels amazing. Even though we did things on Saturday that most people will do any day of the week, for me, it was just simply……nice!
