What a few couple of weeks. Add to the chaos crazy weather! This morning it was a toasty 28F and now it’s cloudy again so we are probably in for some rain.
I’m not sure if it was the weather or what, but I woke up with a headache this morning. Even tonight it’s still aching a little and seems to be behind my eyes. I’ve tried wearing my new glasses, but it will take a while to get used to these progressive bifocals. At work is the hardest since my computer has two monitors and if I just glance from one to the other it makes me dizzy. I have to remember to physically turn my head so that everything stays in focus.
Are you ready for the Super Bowl? I really don’t know who is playing but we will be watching just to see the commercials. Crazy isn’t it?
If your wondering about my vision it’s still about the same as before. In the mornings its a little hard to focus on things, but it gets better the longer I’m out of bed. No real cloudiness in my vision yet, but I’m keeping a mental list of the symptoms in the back of my mind. Did I mention that we are working to get our passports renewed? Yes..no more putting things off. I want to do some traveling. I’d love to go back to Venice and Munich with hubby, but right now I’m actually looking into Ireland. Since I’m half Irish..why not! More to come on that subject later!
Flashback… 1960 my father buys land in a pasture that is a half mile from a river. Going on good information he and mom start building their future weekend home on the side of a hill. With plans that they found in a magazine the project of their lifetime started. The front yard slightly sloping to the edge of the property line…a pasture with meandering cows. Up goes a retaining wall, a dock, boat house, and sidewalk along the retaining wall. Sounds strange doesn’t it? Well not if you have insight into what’s about to happen just a few years down the road. The river that seems so far away in the distance will soon be damned up by the electric company and the water will back right up to the retaining wall. What was once just a funny looking property with a boathouse and dock in the middle of a pasture will soon be waterfront property. The place where we will go each weekend to relax and spend summers once school is out.
Fast forward 50 years…that’s what I want to do. Over the past couple of years I’ve had this feeling like I wanted somewhere to go, to just get away, like we did when I was growing up. One of my aunts and uncles have a cabin that they travel to on the weekends too. Being retired they are able to come and go as they want. Is it crazy that I’d like to have the same? Sometimes with the stress that comes with both our jobs I think that a weekend away might give us that relief we’re searching for.
I’ll keep searching and maybe one day before we’re too old to enjoy find a chunk of land somewhere. It’s a good time to look for something since we’ve knocked out all our bills except for utilities, mortgage and food! The search is on… and if it turns into a piece of land that we camp on in the beginning…that’s just fine with me! Ok…100F temps may factor in, but that’s what portable A/C units are for right?
