1.) I miss Dowton Abbey – Were you a fan? Are you having withdrawals? Will you buy the series and watch it forever and always? If you do, can I borrow it…forever and always?
2.) I miss my kid…and my husband – Jake flew out from Indiana and spent his college Spring Break with his mom. How cool is that? It rained every day but one and a half. We watched a lot of TV together, I made him seafood pasta and baked him his favorite bars, wrapped up his FAFSA application for school, walked the new piece of property a couple of times and he tried to teach me the card game “Uker”. I still don’t get it.
As far as “the husband” goes? I’m headed back out with him and the Bud hitch real soon!
3.) Our final, final set of house plans are being drawn up. Somebody pinch me it’s really coming together. After all these years we will finally be settled, in our own house, back on Idaho soil. We hope to break ground and begin construction late May. The grateful meter is redlining!
4.) I’ve not been able to use WordPress on my laptop for well over a year, maybe two. It’s all weird and difficult to use and I’ve tried reinstalling the program to see if it would help…no luck. As you can imagine or know first hand, composing a post on a smart phone isn’t exactly convenient or easy but every now and then I buck up and do one anyway. Truth be told, it’s time for a new laptop and I haven’t got the heart to be spending money on one of those at the moment. (See number 3 above – Ha)
5.) Once upon a time, I received a letter from a guy whom I had just begun to date. A guy that three years later, I married. The letter I speak of was the very first letter he sent me. Its postmark I only recently discovered just so happens to be the month and day of our then unborn son. It kind of weirded me out. Still does.
