Snow Boots or Flip Flops

I am headed to Colorado later today.  My flight is this afternoon.  Usually it is the first thing in the morning.  Good thing it isn't today because, I can't find my wheely suitcase.  Yikes.  Since I don't want to pay the baggage fee, I may be in trouble.  Next trip to the washer and dryer I will look once again in we level.  Are you like me......always waiting on the laundry to be done before you can pack.  My daughter thought it would be warm this week but the weather map doesn't look like that.  So, boots and a winter coat and some warm clothes.  The weather doesn't matter.......just getting to see my kids and grandkids is what matters.  I am excited.
I will still be checking up on all of you by way of my Kindle.  So you can still sign up for the swap. 

Okay a couple of random things.  Have you ever been in a sports bar.....any place that serves food with a TV.  There is a game on the TV and the men shout out four letter words.  I was thinking. if you or I did that what would they think.  First there would be silence, then they probably would think we had tourettes. 

Today is the second anniversary of my dear cousin's death to H1N1.  So sad.  I really  miss her.  So glad to have the memories and things to remind me of her.  This has been a bad year for illness.  So many sick.

For some reason, I couldn't edit this. I did find my wheelie suitcase. I made it to Colorado several days ago. Other than two business men nearly knocking me down exiting the plane all is well. Glad I brought my boots as there has been lots of snow here there and everywhere. I am reading blogs and will be posting again when I return.

Have a wonderful time in Colorado! Aren't they expecting a ton of snow? I always pack late...not because of washing clothes, just because I procrastinate on everything! Safe travels!

XO,
Jane

I am so sorry about your cousin-it is hard to believe so many are losing their lives over this flu also.
So scarey.
Glad your trip out was ok-boy, I miss Colorado. Such a wonderful state. I bet you are having a blast with your family-good for you!

I do find myself waiting for laundry only because I have not a lot of clothes, I would rather spend money on paint! I'm so sorry for the loss of your relative, that is a hard one, I have never been in a sports bar, heck I have never been in a bar, maybe I should go to see, lol,

I'm so glad you made it safely--the little dusting we had in Nevada on Saturday morning apparently left more than a bit in Colorado! Keep warm and cozy and enjoy those little ones ((hugs))

Hey Debby, I know that you are really missing your cousin. Who would have thought the H1N1 could be so devastating. So sorry for you and your family's loss.
I hope you have a wonderful stay in CO. Guess you are going to get lots of snow! I sent you an email about the chickie swap and of course I would love too! If you don't receive the email just let me know and I will copy and paste it to your comment section on your blog. Have a wonderful snowy visit and glad you found your suitcase, Holly

Safe travels my friend. We once were at Wallymart looking for a suitcase at 1am before my husband was to leave on a flight! Where can a large suitcase hide? Have a wonderful time . Love, Penny

Every time I hear about GETTING THE FLU SHOT, I think of your dear cousin. Her tragedy really tore at my heart and made a lasting impression. I cannot believe it has been so long. It seems like just yesterday. Love you...genie
