Yikes…you know how it feels when your routine has been jangled around and you feel like 700 miles of bad road? That’s me this morning.
Great, awesome, amazing weekend, but now the week starts. First DT rehearsals, and this Friday, a very special pair of visitors arrive. So, no fooling around for the next five days.
As most of you know, it was grand seeing my Illinois family on Saturday. Not only did I share memories and fun with them, I got to take off by myself and relive some private memories by seeing my childhood home and the elementary school I attended in my neighborhood. The memories were overwhelming; living in that house and going to that school rank near the top of my list of the happiest time in my life.
I laughed all evening with my Illinois family, and had a great time reminiscing over photos with my aunts and awesome Uncle Jerry and Aunt Betty, who flew up from Florida.
But now, alas, it’s (past) time to hit the shower and the road. Hope everyone has a great Monday — sometimes, they take work. Heh.
Great pictures, Bird! So glad that you had some time to do some sightseeing. Wonderful picture of Uncle Jerry, too! I would like to see more of the rest of the family!
Hope your nerves have calmed down from the up-close-and-personal meeting with the deer this morning! Yikes!!!
Well you will go next time, luvy! And I took the Facebook advice and bought two of those deer whistles this morning. Their research says they are 90% effective — I’ll take all the help I can get!
Your childhood home looks VERY much like MY childhood home!
Were you raised in Fort Wayne?
Nope. Grew up in New Lebanon, OH. I will gladly claim The Fort as home though. I’ve been here almost 25 years and like it sooo much better than the Dayton area.
Nice pictures. We had a fire hydrant in front of our house, too. Fortunately it was never put to use in all of the years that we lived there. Sometimes they came to flush it out and that was fun!
So, your Monday is done and dusted, mine has just started.
When is DT?
Well I hope by the time you read this, your Monday is overwith and you’re relaxing. I’m writing this at 5:30 a.m., which makes it, what — around noon over there in Klompenland? I hope the day was sunny for you! <3 <3
DT runs 2 and 3 November, 4 shows. I would DIE if that lined up with your visit!!
*hmmmm scratching head and making notes on calendar* You never know!
My “Monday” went well, got rained on but I was prepared. Came home to the smell of freshly-baked bread and when I was done showering the smell of freshly-brewed coffee was wafting through the house. Can’t help but relax then!
