Stuff & Things

*It's suppose to be Spring next week & we are getting another snowstorm on that day. Not sure how much yet. Hopefully only a coating to an inch & there's school. I was stuck in the house 2 days this week because of a NorEaster. March isn't usually this cold or snowy.

*I'm trying to plan my Birthday vacation at the end of June. Trying to decide where to go. Last year we went to NJ. I want to go somewhere different again.

*We are finally going to be doing some house stuff. I'll take pics once we get stuff finished. We got a new giant clock for the living room/dining room, so we have to rearrange everything there. We also have curtains that need to be trimmed. That we got at a yard sale. I changed the curtains in the bathroom to a white lace topper curtain. I need change. We've been here for just over 10 years & I want to change things up a bit. I get sick of things after a while. This is the new clock. I like it because it says Paris on it.

*I would like to get some fresh flowers for the house if I can find some. I haven't seen any daffodils. I usually get some in February.

Dreaming of Spring

As I'm writing this it's just starting to snow out & we are suppose to get 8-14 inches of snow tomorrow. I'm hoping this is the last storm. This is the 3rd NorEaster in a row. Cape Cod, MA has taken these storms the worst. Houses are destroyed & there has been major flooding. So I'm dreaming of Spring. It starts next Tuesday, but I don't think it will feel like Spring until April here. Maybe even late April.

Some of the things I'm dreaming of are:

*Going for walks around the neighborhood.
*Having the windows open.
*Sitting on our deck or in our gazebo once we can bring out the patio furniture.
*Flowers blooming.
*Planting our garden.
*Driving with the windows down in the car.
*Wearing flip flops.
*Painting my toe nails pretty bright colors.
*Wearing braids & buns.
*Being in a good mood because it's warm & sunny & that is when I'm the happiest.

What I'm reading now

Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose, but then his big question involves a trip abroad — not a trip down the aisle. Completely crushed, Lottie reconnects with an old flame, and they decide to take drastic action. No dates, no moving in together, they’ll just get married . . . right now. Her sister, Fliss, thinks Lottie is making a terrible mistake, and will do anything to stop her. But Lottie is determined to say “I do,” for better, or for worse.

Sophie Kinsella is 1 of my fave authors. I want to read her new book, My (Not So) Perfect Life.

Stuff & Things

 * I got my first Shamrock shake of the season this week. I always look forward to them. I read that they were first released in 1970, the year I was born. I have been getting them since I was a kid.

*We had a snowstorm yesterday & overnight. We lost power for a few minutes, but it came right back on. But wi-fi was out all day. So I finally got online. For some reason my ipod won't connect to wi-fi. Since yesterday morning, before it even started snowing. Not sure what is going on.

*I found out that 1 of my friends passed away. I use to work with her & she was like a 2nd Mom to me. She helped me get through some bad times & always gave me advice. So I've been sad the past few days.

*My Mom went home from rehab finally. She was there for about a month. She is in a wheelchair though & will have a nurse come in & a physical therapist.

*Tomorrow is the Daddy Daughter Dance. I'll get lots of pics before they leave. I think T might be a little chilly in the dress that she is wearing. I wish it was going to be warmer for them.

I wish there was a place that you could go when you get to be a certain age to get advice. I'm almost 48 & I wonder what I can do now to be healthier in the long run. What pills & vitamins should I be taking, what beauty products to really help with age spots or wrinkles? At each age milestone you hit, there should be advice to let you know what to do to make your life better. Maybe like a Life coach for aging. Maybe I'm on to something. If I had to give advice to someone turning 30 I'd say make sure you use sunblock on your face, hands & body. Turning 40, maybe take a multivitamin or probiotic. Not sure what would be good for when you are 50 since I haven't reached it yet, but I'm getting closer. What advice would you give to someone hitting an age milestone?
