Thanks, PinkGrandma! As much as I'd like to move back to NYC, that's impossible. First of all, the rents are too high. Secondly, I feel I need to stay here in Jacksonville with Mayo 5 min. from me. Thirdly, my daughter and granddaughters are here. But I am really happy to be going back for a visit!
Connie I think its so wonderful you get to have some fun and do some of the things you love. I love New York. Never lived there (who could afford that) but have been a few time on Girlfriend trips!!! I could just sit and watch the people. I love them. Have a big cup of Starbucks and enjoy Clay. I love him.
June, thank you! I'm as excited as a teenager, that's for sure! Once in awhile, I get a little pang of guilt about the money I'll be spending. I am always EXTREMELY practical, especially regarding money. I REALLY need a new bed. Mine is 17 yrs. old and the warranty was for 15 yrs. I watch TV and read in bed, as well as sleep, so it's definitely sagging. However, I just keeping turning the mattress and putting off purchasing a new one. Maybe I'd better start buying lottery tickets! LOL!
I just have a gut feeling that this may be the last and only time I will be able to make such a trip--and the only time that Clay will be in Spamalot--so I want to have those memories.
Take care everyone.
I'll try to get back to posting more regularly.
Marj, it's so good to have you posting again! I imagine with school starting, you won't have much opportunity...but please drop in every so often! You've been missed. So pleased to hear all the positive news.
All of you grandmas with young ones....enjoy it now! Unfortunately, when the teen years come, they turn into someone you don't even know. My daughter is having a time coping with the 15-year-old, who listens to no one. When they rebel these days, it's not just getting caught smoking in the bathroom...it's far worse.
As for me, I've enjoyed my month of only one medical appt., but starting Mon. I will have a full schedule of them. I'm praying for good results, so I can go forward with my plans to go to NYC in April.
I've been making a lot of soups from scratch, as well as entrees like stew, and have had no more stomach problems. Tomorrow, I'm making ratatouille in the crock pot.
We've had unseasonably cold weather here in NE FL, but today was sunny and warm, with a high of 68. It tends to change from day to day, but I do believe the coming few days will be nice.
