Sorry for not being around the last several days. My husband and I took off suddenly when we were invited to stay with friends at their condo in Newport, Rhode Island. Suffice it to say that we had such a wonderful time. We just returned home and are weary. We had dinner on the way home and just unpacked. I'll try to myLot until bath time and bed. I hope you had a wonderful weekend, too!

Your photo is your handsome hubby? You live quite the life! I am just back from travelling West so I am weary, too.

@DianneN I try to sleep well enough at a motel but never do so a five hour freeway driving stint gets to me.

Well lucky you, I love Newport. I was considering it for our getaway this week for our anniversary but I decided on someplace else.

We used to go every summer with or without the kids or with friends. Haven't been there for a while, but it hasn't changed much at all. Happy upcoming Anniversary! When is it? Ours is in August.

Oh, thank you, Anna. I agree life is more important, but I do miss everyone so much when I'm not around.

@LadyDuck We are definitely sisters! Actually, I have to meet up with some real friends later to go shopping. I prefer to shop alone, so I can think straight, but will have lots of laughs with the girls and a nice lunch. I am saving my real shopping for Boston where I plan to do some real damage for my birthday weekend.

Thanks, Louise. It was very, very spur of the moment. Perhaps I should have written a post if I had the time.

@DianneN I feel sorry for her. When she gets her ObamaPhone things will get a lot easier for her. She'll be able to be in touch with her family so she can get the help she needs.

I had a good weekend. I introduced my grandson to people he already knew, but not in the capacity he knew them. He loves to go to a rock shop near his home, and I've taken him there a couple times, only waited for him in the car. My cousin messaged me on FB that she's having an event coming up with vendors and looks to be an exciting time for her. She makes jewelry from rocks. Anyway, I took my grandson to introduce him to his cousin who owns the rock shop, and I met her grandson, who is also a good friend of his and the same age. He was blown away they are cousins.
