Knock Knock...Is This Thing Still On?

Well , I think this has been the longest stretch that I have gone without blogging yet! 

Part of the reason is my laptop quit connecting to the internet yet again. Last time that happened it took my son-in-law (yay!) Brad two days to fix it which is a lot for  him cuz hes a computer  genius! Anyway, I'm not going to bother with it anymore.  It's too old and been a lemon from day one. And our old desktop is such a dinosaur and so slow it drives me crazy! I am getting a new computer next month for sure. I'm posting this from my phone now but I hate typing on my phone with my fat fingers!

So let's see what has been going on in the last few months.....

When last I left you, Shauna and Brad had just gotten married. Now they have been married for 3 months and very happy!
 
Rich and I took a great road trip to the East Coast at the beginning of August.  

We did some serious traveling which was tough and I'm not sure we would do it again but it was worth it this time!!

Our first destination was Bar Harbor Maine and we stopped in Bangor to stalk Stephen Kings house. 



That seriously was a highlight of the trip for me! I have been a fan of his books practically since he started writing them! I could have stayed there all day but I heard he doesn't even live there anymore anyway. It was beautiful though! The grounds were immaculate and landscaped so beautiful. Plus it's HUGE! You can tell a bazillionair owns it!

Next: Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park

The Wedding Part VII: The Aftermath

Well, after all the planning, worrying, stressing, spending, getting teary eyed and having a blast the wedding was over! We went back to the hotel and went to bed and it took me two hours to get to sleep!

The next morning we left pretty quickly. Shauna and Brad wanted to have brunch together later so we headed home. We did get a chance to say hi and bye to Rich's sister Judy and her daughters, as they would be leaving for South Carolina on Monday.

Got home and took a shower and washed all of the product out of my hair! Put everything away and then went and met Shauna, Brad and Brad's parents for brunch. It was nice to relax and talk about everything with them.

Later in the afternoon, I went to the grocery store and just as I was pulling into the parking lot, the blues hit me like I knew they would! It's always a little depressing the let down after a big event. So I sat in my car and cried for a few minutes and when I felt better I went inside and did my grocery shopping for the week!

I had taken Monday and Tuesday off of work just because I knew I would not feel like going back to work right away. Shauna and Brad left early in the morning for their honeymoon in Punta Cana and she sent me pictures when they arrived


They look so happy and excited, don't they?

We still had two buckets of flowers and seeing as I can't really have them in my house because the cats will eat them, I did the next best thing!


Took them to my mom. And probably gave a feast to the deer later that evening!

I spent the week looking after Stash while Shauna and Brad were away. He hates when they leave him and he was letting me know!


Then late Sunday we picked Shauna and Brad up from the airport . They had a fantastic time and it was back to work for them the next day!

It was such a wonderful experience and I will cherish the memories for a long time to come!!

Until the next time......
