Back into the swing of things

After a big trip it seems to always take a few days to catch up on sleep.  It takes even more days to clean up and put away everything from a big trip.  However, travel is something my husband and I love.  It is part of the reason I joined the military when I was still a teen and it is definitely why he chose a traveling job.  Last week we basically lived in Denver.  I took advantage of the quiet room to read, write book reviews, and create a literature study over The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara.  He enjoyed the evening meals from our little hotel kitchenette.


However, the best thing about being in Denver was how close we were to our daughter.  Our love for travel taught her to not fear going where her heart takes her.  As a result she works in New Mexico at a big scout ranch. It is her job to play the fiddle, teach fly tying and fishing, and interact with backpackers.  Her days off are few and far between, but we happened to be in the same area at the same time she was taking her ‘days off’.  What a joy it was to visit with our daughter.  More so, it was a joy to see her face when we presented her with a box of coveted Twinkies.


Unfortunately now it’s time to get back into the swing of daily life.


May Madness

Finally, I can sit and breath after what has been a whirlwind month.  During the month of May I have been home for maybe a week and a half.  The reason for the minimal home time, we paid a visit to Dad, who is working in the Chicago area, plus a visit to the grandparents to congratulate sis on her university graduation and finally a fabulous get-away with the husband for a very romantic 15th anniversary celebration at Serenity Lake Bed and Breakfast.  More details and hopefully pictures will be coming, but now it is time to stop moving.
