Great… Again?

I’ve remained quiet on this topic for as long as I could stand, but the heartache I’m experiencing is just too great to stay silent any longer. I don’t watch the news because it depresses me.  Unfortunately, all of that negativity has found it’s way onto my Facebook feed.  I’m on Facebook to keep track …

Eight or Twelve?

So, the other day, I saw this video.  If you’re like Mr. C, you’re not going to actually watch it.  If you have the chance, I’d suggest watching it because it will make much more sense.  But be warned – the language is Not Safe For Work (or little ears). If you’re not going to watch …

Can’t Sleep

I had a bout of insomnia last night.  Yuck!  It is such a helpless feeling – the more you stress about going to sleep, the harder it is to sleep.  The later it gets, the more you stress about it.  And around and around and around… I’ve learned not to look at the clock.  Sometimes …

My New Restaurant

“Seriously?” my sister whined.  “We don’t have time for a stop!” “I’ll just be a minute,” I tried to assure her. “You don’t really need it.”  My brother added his voice to my sister’s. Exasperation poured from me.  “It’s my purse.  Of course I need it.” Without fail, Mother chimed in.  “You’re not even wearing …

A Mellow Fourth

When Mr. C and I took the puppies to the ocean for the first time, we seriously messed up.  We were in tennis shoes and long pants.  When the brownish surf came roaring in, we didn’t want to get our clothes yucky, so we playfully screamed and ran from the wave, having fun with the …

I’m in Love!

For some reason, my mother (whose intelligence and advice I respect greatly) believes that you can’t really be in love for two years of knowing someone (or being with them, I’m not sure which).  So, as of last Sunday, I am officially in love!  Yay!! That’s right – for those of you who’ve been following …

Consquences

While I wouldn’t trade my trip, the experiences, or the memories for anything, there were consequences from it. The most obvious one is the blisters.  I had blisters literally for weeks.  Even after the blisters were no longer blisters, my feet were a mess.  I limped for a long time even after i got home. …

Drive Home

The drive home was fairly uneventful. We kinda saw Mt. Shasta.  It would have been pretty, had it not been blocked by all the clouds.  This was the best picture of it I could get. After a while, we were on the hunt for a rest area, but were unable to find one.  We had …

Yosemite

Yosemite National Park is the other stop (other than San Francisco) which Mr C wanted to join us on.  Again, he opted not to, but I know he wanted to be there with us, showing us his favorite sites, telling us about the history of it. Instead, my hero stayed at home, taking care of …

San Francisco

The next stop on our whirlwind tour was San Francisco.  This was one of our two stops of which Mr. C was the most jealous.  As I consider the Seattle area home, he considers San Francisco his city.  He even talked about hopping on a plane and joining us for that stop.  He opted not …
