MY DAYS IN RETIREMENT

Oh God, The Kids Are Back!

Had Susan, Tom, Felicia and Bridget for supper yesterday. We hadn’t seen them since their trip to Disney World and were anxious to see the girls and all of the pictures we knew Susan would take. So we had hamburgers on the BBQ and sat outside where it was more relaxing. Worked it so we had no dishes to do, which always pleases me!!

Had a great time and Susan (true to form) had some great photos and plenty of them. Bridget really enjoyed the surprise trip to Graceland and yes, Susan, even managed to get pictures of inside, albeit a little shaky – as she had trouble with her camera. But they were fun to look at and it was fun hearing the kids tell of their adventures.

Felicia and Bridget really love those roller coasters and giggle every time they reminisce about them. Frankly there’s not enough money in the world to get me on a roller coaster – so I admire their gumption!

Also had a slight problem with the air-conditioner yesterday. Discovered water on the laundry room floor and after some careful scanning, found there were drips coming from the water pipes on the air- conditioner. Long story short, Nat and Nick are going to divert the water pipes to where they should have been put in the first place!! Just another piddly little job – and luckily we found it in time or we could have had a half decent flood down there !!

Since the old toe is a lot better, I’m at least getting some house work done today and again, like someone famous always says “That’s A Good Thing”.

Born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada, with 5 sisters and a brother. Now retired, my husband and I travel, play golf and am slowly renovating our new (old) home. After my kidney transplant in 1999, we've learned to enjoy life to the fullest. Nat and I have driven across Canada, taken an Alaskan cruise and drove home via the Northern United States. We've also been to Mexico, the Caribbean, the East Coast of Canada and Cape Breton. We've done the "Snowbird" thing, having lived in Destin, Florida for a couple of months of the year. In 2007 we changed our travel plans in order to move into and renovate our new "old" home, but hope to someday get back on the road again. We also love returning to Scotland (Nat's origin of birth) to visit his family and tour the Highlands and surrounding Isles.
