Okay, this Internet thing is amazing and all but every now and then, one of those little pings and doogles and ladidadis (I do believe those are the professional terms) hits. Yep, our Internet service was...well...interupted I believe was the technical term. For *2* days! Can you believe that? Oh the humanity!! I cried, I fumed, I ate chocolate. Okay, so I would have eaten the chocolate anyway but still....
Our entire neighborhood was affected. Oh what a sad 2 days for me...no blogging buddies to visit! I was beside myself...in back of myself...oh, and that view was not pretty I must tell you...
Well, I am just now trying to play catch up so know I am on my way to visit all of my buddies! I missed ya!
I missed some major events and would like to send my belated wishes to....
Little *G* Man (Missy's son) had his 2nd birthday!! Happy Birthday you handsome boy you! 2 is a very important birthday you know! This little guy has the sweetest face. Every time Missy posts a new picture of him, well, I get the biggest smile on my old mug. You can't help it! He is just a doll. Hop over to Missy's blog and send him a birthday greeting! While you are there, check out that face! Those eyes and lashes ladies...this is a lady killer in the making! Hugs little *G*!
And, jog over to Jolene's blog and wish her a *Happy One Year Blogging Anniversary*! Congratulations dear lady! You have been a blessing to all of us. A sweet and oh so special person that has so many
talents and gifts...you are one of the very best Jolene!
Now, on a personal note...I still need to post a picture of this wonderful bounty but Andi surprised me with the most delightful box in the mail this week.
It had been a bitterly cold few days and receiving this package just warmed me to the very core...it was all that Florida sunshine I guess! Just wanted to publicly thank you Andi...you are a DOLL!
Valerie!! How are YOU? You have been AWOL for a while battling a nasty cold so I am sending you a big get well. I would send you some chicken soup but it would be a little cold and yucky and congealed by the time it reached the coast...FEEL BETTER!
Just a little aside...dear Coleen and RaNae...if you are read this, please know how much I care.
Jen...you too. You are a strong girl...it WILL all work out.
And Teresa! Run, do not walk, over to Teresa's blog and see her gorgeous new puppy! Such a precious baby! I so want to snuggle that sweet thing! Enjoy her dear Teresa!
My prayers and thoughts are with Cheryl's husband
who has suffered a health scare this week. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
We all care so much dear Cheryl...
Do drop Leona's sweet blog and wish her, and her handsome husband, a very happy anniversary this week. She has posted some sweet pictures in the form of a slide show set to one of my favorite songs! Happy Anniversary! You are such a special couple.
Okay...now, been a busy few days and yeah...you all know that I am wearing a smile 'cause, BILL IS HOME! Oops, excuse my over active exuberance...but, BILL IS HOME!! Yep, I know that he still has to go back and resign & work 2 more weeks at the job in VA but then he is home for good. Gosh how great that sounds. Maybe this year was good for us. Good in a way that being apart due to his military obligations was not. We never thought we would have to go through this sort of job related separation after he retired from the Navy. Then it happened. It has been tough and lonely but it has made us really appreciate the time we do have together. Much more so than I would have thought.
We are far from the perfect couple...on that note, does anyone actually KNOW the perfect couple? Do they even exist? I have my doubts. Perfect would be oh so boring.
But, we have weathered many of those proverbial storms and still really LIKE one another. He can make me so angry and yet, NO one can fill my heart with joy the way he does. I just happen to think he is one good looking man...well, for an old guy and all. Me being so very much younger than he is....a WHOLE 5 months younger thank you very much. Practically robbed the cradle he did...well, um...he is a pretty good guy at heart and I am so happy he will be back with us on a daily basis. I just hope that we don't start taking things for granted...okay, we are not perfect, as I said so we will probably be guilty of that from time to time. Still, I think we learned a lot from this little trial. I hope so. Yep, I do hope so. Even when those socks and underwear show up on the bedroom floor.
Ya'll have a great Saturday...stay well and safe and happy.
