Laying Low aka MIA

I know I know I've been  MIA for a while now, sorry about that.

I've been on vacation but I've been busy cleaning my house. And working on my summer bucket list.

O and I'm missing the kids! Really missing them. We try to skype them as often as we can but most days the kids just tell us not to call cause they are busy.  They've been shopping and visiting with their cousins and shopping. Cat is in 7th Heaven. And my mother-in-law is enjoying having a girl to shop for. 

I know I mention this all the time but honestly, the weather is terrible! It's been raining most of the time. Not much of a summer!

When I'm not working on the house we are hanging out with friends and getting to bed too late! But, hey I'm on vacation.  I'm hoping that we can get away for a couple of days to somewhere warm.

You this is the other thing of not doing much other than working on the house, I don't have much to blog about.  O wait, last weekend we attended a small local festival to promote Stack-Cup.  It wasn't bad at all, cept for the rain.

Check out some of the photos on Facebook.

And last, but not least I got my first award! Yay!  From Kenzi! Thank you so much!
