As most of you know I had a crazy month last month. One of my friends here suggested I take some "me time" so I did. I had my house all to myself for 4 days, no hubby and no kids, peace and quiet!!!!!! And I did as little as possible. I didn't even go anywhere for the entire 4 days. It was great. Thanks for the advice Grandpa Bob, I feel much better now. Life is back to normal now yeah!

Fantastic Sassy, we all need it at times. I am glad things are back to a normal state for you. I have decided to take a small vacation in july by myself as well and go to Chicago and see my sister, its long over due and I need the change as well.

How are things with your family? Have they changed much in the last week? I hope you enjoy your trip and visit with your sister. Yes I feel much more like myself again.

And boy did you deserve it sweety! I am so glad that you have had a thoroughly relaxing time after so much hassle for weeks before - but from a selfish point of view I am really upset because just when i thought I was getting my lovely friend back you disappeared again! Never mind at least now you are feeling refreshed and relaxed and back here with us again! Yiiiiipppppeeee Now we can play again! xxx

I am sorry I disappeared on you again. But hubby had to go out of town on a job and the girls went to their dad's. So after I got home from dropping hubby off the race was on and I got to watch the entire thing uninterrupted, after that I decide not to do much of anything. But I am back to stay now

Sweets there is no need to apologise! lol Anyone would agree that you deserved a break and a ton of time to yourself after the time you had had! I was a bit worried that your mum had got worse or that one of the girls had had another accident - I am a born worrier - even though I try not to! xx

My mom is doing well now and my daughters do everything in pairs, so hopefully all will be quiet around here for awhile. I have had enough excitement in the last few months

Great!!! I'm glad you had time to rest and energize. It's always the best way to time by ourselves to recharge and start fresh. And that was a great advice from Grandpa Bob! Have a great day dear!! (^^,)

I am so pleased. You really do need to recharge your spirital energies every now and again, however tough you are. Now you are back, may I tentatively suggest you take yourself off for a day every now and then, just to keep yourself fully charged? x

I didn't realize how much recharging I needed. Your right I will start taking a day once and a while to recharge

Its important to have some "me time" in everyones life or you get to wrapped up in the daily momments and loose sight of everything. Glad to hear you are feeling great.

April was not a good month for me, it was a bit caotic around here. But things are getting back to normal now and hopefully they stay that way for awhile.

Hee hee hee. My name's in headlines now. This is very touching actually. I feel so honored to be mentioned as the topic here.Thank you very much too sweetie. I'm so glad you took my advice. I knew that's all that ya needed was that "me" time. It sounds kind of greedy but before my wife, before my children, before my father and even before my grandsons I come first and foremost always. I am the most important person to me. If I wasn't I couldn't make my loved ones happy. Thanks again for this honor. Take care. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM THE ONE AND ONLY GRANDPA BOB!!~ (hahahahaha)
