When I left on Friday, I looked like this...
A hundred miles down the road...beautiful scenery and some fun music...
And I was looking like this...
I have a ton of beautiful scenery photos to sort through. The drive between Colorado and Phx is beautiful country. It's all scenic, but I took the long scenic route. Coming and going-LOL.
It was soooooo good to catch up with some of my friends again. I'm really sorry, but I stuck my camera in my center console out of sight...apparently out of mind as well...once I got to Phx and I don't have any pics of the people I visited. Mikey has a pic of us though. I'm sure she will post it when she updates.
Getting away was just what the doctor ordered and it's a shame that I had to get so furious before I got in the truck and headed such a short way to visit dear friends. I did not get to see everyone I wanted to, but I plan on heading back down that way after Christmas for a longer stay and will then have the time to make my way all the way around the city to visit everyone.
Amazingly enough, when I pulled into my friend, Angie's place and stepped out of the pick-up, it sure didn't feel like it had been 2-1/2 years since I have been there. From the very first time we (the whole family) went to Phx, back in 2002, it has always felt like I belonged there. I have a very strong affinity to that area.
In the meantime...It's back to the grind here. I have a couple of minor things yet to do to the house-install shades, install the new dishwasher (won't be me doing that-LOL) and putting the baseboards back up and we are ready to move in. I thought there was going to be some moving going on this weekend while I was gone...that didn't happen and the 'new' me is just shrugging my shoulders. All I have to move over is my and Megan's personal items. The rest of it...(taking my cue from Chelsi..."gives blank stare and blinks").
Remember what I said about the weather?
Sure enough...rain/snow showers and decidedly cooler temps for the rest of this week. Lovely.
So anyway...I'm back and back to normal...whatever that is...and life goes on.
