It's Already October AND, I'm a blog slacker again. But, I have reasons....

I just haven't been in the mood.

I was gone.

I was sick.

I'm lazy.

There, I've run through all the excuses, choose the one you like, they all work!

I was gone, off to Houston last week.  I was SO looking forward to it.  It didn't go as planned.

We arrived, stocked up on 'supplies' ( snack foods, drinks,you know,  important things), and headed to the apartment.  I was really tired and felt kind of sniffly.  Not a good sign.

The next morning I was sick. Like lay on the couch in my pajamas and feel miserable sick.  All day. Every day.   All week.  I sent Mark out for kleenex, and some cold medicine.  He returned with all things one needs to battle a cold, in addition to a lovely bouquet of flowers to cheer me up.  We didn't have a vase, so we improvised with a drinking glass.  Only tipped over once...sending water everywhere, but nothing important was ruined. They were lovely, and did perk me up.

So, other than dinner, one night outside (it's still nice in Houston)...

and a drink at Sambuca's (MY FAVE) to hear the band, I layed on the couch and watched TV or slept.  Yee Haw...  nice vacation.

my view for the week

But, we returned on Friday and hit the boat on Saturday and Monday last weekend.

It's kinda the last hurrah... on a season that was really short.  We had SO much going on this summer we feel like we hardly used the boat.  Both the month of May and August were non sailing months ~ just too busy.  Anyway, I guess we are pulling it out early this year, like maybe next week.  We have another busy month, this month, so it's over. It has to be out by Nov. 1.

I'm verklempt.  

The 6 months of winter seem way longer than the 6 months of boat season.  

We are moving ahead with wedding #2.  I need to make some decorating decisions, I've been scouring magazines and different sites online for inspiration.  My little book is overflowing with ideas.  Secured the music, the kids picked the tuxes.  And we are beginning the showers!  First one is this month!!

I had an interesting experience today, a facial.  Never had one before.  My kids gave it to me as a birthday gift.  It was awesome.  I'm hooked!!!  Although, when I left,  I wanted to run some errands, not to hair looked a fright!! I tried to comb it... haha...  I tried behind my ears, haha... tried the sunglasses on my head look... it was scary.  Note to self... after facial, you must go home, directly.  Anyway, I am now ready for a big major event coming up in my life....

I'm going to see my best girl.  In HER hometown.
