My Aunt says that a lot, it cracks me up.
Well, I'm up here in New Hampshire, enjoying some much needed get-back-to-the-roots time with family, and I've finally decided to actually write a real post and I'm not going to delete it this time, promise.
So we've been doing a lot of relaxing up here in the good ol' New England air. Lots of sleeping in for mommy too, always a plus. My family is finally starting to recover from the stomach bug we seemed to have caught. Well, everyone but my poor mommy, she has been so under the weather. I have my fingers crossed that tomorrow will be her day.
We did some good shopping earlier in the week. Spoiled the crap out of my daughter, of course. She got sooo many new outfits, some shades, a Sox hat... and mommy spoiled herself with a new Coach diaper bag and Shades and a Sox hat too! Ah, retail therapy!
The rest of the time we've been just hanging, visiting with family, and reeeelaxing. Oh and I took a ride on my uncle's goooorgeous hog. I am definitely feeling the need to get a two-wheeled vehicle now!!
Today, I met a BLOGGY FRIEND, the lovely Ashley from Kiwis and Cocktails. She is one of my oldest bloggy friends and it was cool to meet her and make her a real life friend (don't forget to find me on fb, Ashley!) We indulged in some wine and went to eat at the Yankee Smokehouse and enjoyed lots of conversation. She is just as fun in real life as in her blog, so if you haven't yet, go check her out!
I also realized what a poop blog friend I am. I am so sorry I am so crap at reading and commenting lately. I really need to do better. I always get such amazing comments and they each mean so much to me. There's one slight issue I have though, can you guys PLEASE make sure you can reply to your comments? No reply at blogger dot com sucks, I go to answer so many people but then I can't!! I also don't know this until I get on an actual computer because my iPhone doesn't show the actual email address just the "name" that sent it to me. So if you haven't yet, update your statuses so that I can email you back. I always want to converse and then am denied by the ways of the interwebs :( And I will try my hardest to read and comment more often, I promise. I really do love you guys even though I am a poop friend lately!!
Let's see what else, what else... on Saturday I think we're hitting up a ropes course in the afternoon. It is called "Monkey Trunks" here in New Hampshire and I'm so stoked, so that will be a fun update. I am also excited to spend some time with Jonny's brother Ben and his girlfriend Kristen.
As far as me and how I'm doing on the inside, well I'm hanging in there. I've had some difficult nights lately... as I learn new things it's new emotions all over. I am sooo thankful to widow friends I can call who can understand what I'm feeling even if they haven't gone through the exact same thing, they've gone through close enough and they all seem so judge free and accepting of the things I feel or have to say. I've never met a more superb group of ladies, so strong and just... inspirational. I guess I can kind of see how you guys tell me I'm "strong" and "inspirational" just by talking to fellow widows. Even though I still think you all are nuts ;-)
