Hello & Happy, Happy Monday Everyone!
How was your weekend? Mine was spent cleaning out
some closets! UGH! LOL I use to own a Thrift Store,
so when I moved, I kept some items for re-sale...
The only problem was... I never took the time to
go through them to re-sell them! So.... I made
sure to do it this weekend.... My sweet son was kind enough
to help his Mom out... Of course I spent a lot of time
looking up the info on some of the items I wanted to sell...
Which, as you can imagine was TIME CONSUMING!!
Needless to say... the closets are not fully done, but I did
get a good chunk cleared out ... Some of it is going to the
local Thrift Store today! YAY... Other stuff needs photo's taken
and descriptions, so I can get them sold & out of the house!
I've been trying to de-clutter my house for the past year...
I think I've come a long way and feel better knowing I don't have
so much crap just lying around not getting used.... Including
Craft stuff.... I really feel better having that de-cluttered as well....
Any who.. I'm soooo SUPER EXCITED!!! Do you want to know WHY????
I'm going on VACATION THIS WEEK!!! EEK!!!
We are going to HAWAII!!! OMGOSH!!
This has ALWAYS been a dream of mine.... And
it's actually happening! AND... I get to see my MARINE!!! OMGOSH!
I actually had planned on taking a cruise to Hawaii this
year for my 25th Wedding Anniversary in October.... But.....
My son was so generous this past Christmas, that he offered
to pay for us to fly out and visit him for a week! I was in SHOCK
& Told him he didn't have to do this.. He knew we had limited funds..
Hubby is disabled and we live on a very simple income.... I went back
to work part time, for extra funds which would have paid for our cruise....
I was making payments on it.... but my son was very insistent that HE PAY for it....
So, I reluctantly agreed to let him do this....
But I'm so thrilled to be going & I get to spend a Week
with him too!!!
This is our last visit with him for awhile, since he will be leaving again
for more training & another deployment... So, we will make the most out of our
trip... We'll be staying at a place that has a kitchen/living area right
on the BEACH! So, I told him, I would cook for him while we're there...
He says to me... MOM... Your not suppose to COOK while on vacation!!
I laughed at him and said... well... I'm doing it for you, since we
both know he won't be getting any home cooked meals for awhile...
I LOVE that boy more than anything.... He's kind & Generous &
serving our country well! Of course I adore ALL my boys.... they are
all amazing & I'm just so proud to be their Mother! UGH....
I might get mushy here... Sorry about that!
Anyway... I just wanted to let you guys know... I won't be
around for a couple of weeks as we get ready to leave
in the next few days..... And I won't be using any social networks
if I can avoid it! I'm gonna POP over to your blogs today, and
check out anything I've missed the last few days... And
I will get back to blogging once I return...
I do have 2 scheduled Design Team posts.. but that's it for now...
I didn't even make any Holiday cards this past week....
But I figure I can let it slide this time, due to this exciting trip!
I will MISS YOU guys dearly while I'm away and
probably have LOTS to tell ya when I get back!
Tanya had said to take LOTS of Pictures....
Not to worry... I WILL... I have a camera and my son has a
GoPro Camera.... so I'm pretty sure we can capture a lot of stuff
while we are out & about exploring the Island!!!
Thanks for always stopping by!
See you in a few weeks!
