Off on Vacation!!

Sunshine, here we come!!

We are sooo ready to be out of the snow and cold and visit family in the Tucson, AZ area for a couple weeks. This last week has been hellacious! First we had the flood in our basement (post from earlier this week). I've had to train a replacement at work and DH had to work overtime several days.


And then, in addition to all the other preparation for the trip, we had our car serviced (scheduled maintenance, new car mats and back brakes relined). Came to $532. We paid for it once, but we got charged THREE times. Two debits hit our checking account and one charge hit our credit card. The bank has reversed one of the debits, and we are jumping through all sorts of paperwork hoops to get the credit card charge reversed. We'll get it, but I'd rather have that money now (for vacation) rather than the weeks it will likely take them. Grrrrrrrrr..........


So while on vacation I've got my camera and will take pictures, but I doubt I'll be posting anything until I get back. In the meantime, I'd like to share a picture with you. It's a beautiful needlepoint picture of two birds sitting in a bower of roses. It is a vintage piece that I bought at an antique show at an expo a couple years ago. The dealer had reframed it and gave us a great deal on it. The red, green and black are my living room colors (and NO, the wall is not white or gray - it's actually a warm light brown). Enjoy!

See you in a couple weeks!
