Those are great! If you lived nearby we'd get together for some sushi and diet coke, my favorites.

I wish we could. Maybe one day I can fly out there or you down here and we can do just that!

Well, I have checked a couple of times today to see if you had posted a new blog... it was worth the wait. I loved the list and believe it or not, I knew a lot of that and a lot of mine would be the same. My hot water froze in my pool house and I called your Dad to ask him what to do. Of course he insisted on coming. It had thawed before he got here but we enjoyed sitting at the table out there and chatting about everything. He told me he loves it out there and just might move in:) He is my HERO too! I remember all too well that he almost died and I am sooooo thankful to still have him here with us. He makes me double over in laughter. Today he was telling me stories about his teenage years. We laughed and laughed. I should make a list too. Although, you could probably make my list for me:) I love you!
Happy Weekend
