Quick Update

Made it to Florida. So excited to see Sharon. Picked up the girls from school and KK has been non stop hugs. The girls are all so big and I can't believe how long it's been since I've seen them. Looking forward to a day of pampering tomorrow.

Pay Back

So guess what the payback is for a vacation. Lots and lots of work and having just three days to catch up because I am leaving for Florida on Thursday. Hip hip hooray. I'm going to Florida. I'm going to Florida.

We have a massage, pedicure, and manicure scheduled for Friday. Disney on Sunday and lots of other fun in between. I am so excited. Time to go see my best friend and her girls.

I wish my hubby was going with me but maybe next time. Six days in Florida. Can you tell I'm excited!

Home, Safe and Sound

I made it home safe and sound. The last day in Sedona, we took a drive up Oak Creek Canyon, beautiful drive and then we went on a two hour hike up Cathedral Rock. I had never really hiked before and loved every minute of the two hours. We got almost to the top but then decided since we didn't have on real hiking boots we had gone far enough. We were up pretty high so I wasn't disappointed. The views were amazing and it was very calming to be there. We then went to another site that was supposed to be a vortex site (a place where energy flow from the earth). I'm not sure if my energy was re-aligned or not but I sure felt peaceful and calm after being there. My friend, Dr. T., knows that it caused her computer not to start right and messed with here cell phone enough that she had to re-start it.

After all that, we were off to Phoenix. The drive was quiet and peaceful, however, my iPhone and co-pilot about lead me astray in Phoenix and had me staying in a commercial warehouse for the night in a not so good part of town. However, they both successfully lead me back to our hotel for the night. We had a good dinner and hot tub then off to bed. I had the worst headache that made it difficult to sleep. We were convinced it was the energy that was changing things in my body.

We made it home around 3:30p on Saturday. Cowboy was sure glad to see me. He treated me like a princess. Motorcycle ride for a sundae, dinner grilled, fire place started and warm and toasty house for me to relax. Breakfast brought to me and a round of golf planned. He is so amazing to me and treats me like a queen. I love that man so much.

I had a great vacation but it was really good to be home. Now three more days and Florida, here I come.

A Second Day in Sedona

Today was our second day in Sedona. We did some site seeing, shopping and took a pink jeep tour. It was a fun day. Not much to say so I'm going to send pictures.

The conference is over. It was very interesting but I'm glad it over. My friend, Dr. T., met me at the airport and we hopped a shuttle to Sedona. Chris, the front desk guy, gave us some good tips on what we need to do while we are here so we are pumped. Tonight was dinner at an amazing restaraunt called Elote. The food was so good. Chris told us to check out the address of the Circle K. The rest of the evening in pics.

Looking forward to the next couple of days.

Off work

Yippee. No work for the next week. Well not exactly no work. I left today for Arizona. The next three day are a conference about our computerized medical record system. How incredibly fun that sounds. Then my friend, Dr.T will be arriving so we can spend a few days in Sedona. Now that's the part of the trip that I'm looking forward to.

I'm missing Cowboy already but it will be good for us to have a few days apart. We'll see if absence makes the heart grow fonder. It would have been fun for him to come with me. The hotel I'm staying at rocks!

She's a deer chaser

Cowboy called this morning and said he shot 3 deer. Well, not exactly shot them. He found them in the yard and they had broken one tree down to the ground, broken the branches off another and ate the leaves out of the top, and the third tree, one we paid good money for had most of the bark rubbed off. He was hot. He got the bb gun out to scare them off.

They came back so he sent Sadie after the deer. Really, what was he thinking?? She did run them off. Thank goodness, they didn't come after her.

Crazy Cowboy. (At least he didn't shoot them.)

Sadie has become brave in her old age. Yesterday, she took off chasing a deer that had wondered in our back yard. Not sure what she would have done if she would have caught it or if the big doe would have charged back at her. Silly, silly girl.

Semi-Productive Day

I had big plans to have a very productive day. But it didn't turn out to be very productive, only semi.

Friday night, we took the son and daughter in law to a comedy club for the son's birthday. I can't believe that Cowboy has a son that will be 33 years old. It just doesn't seem possible. We had a fun evening. As we were pulling into our driveway, we got to see three deer. One a buck. We have seen several doe and fawn's but never a buck so it was pretty exciting to see big daddy running around in our very own yard.

We slept in today. My plan was to get the whole house clean and make dinner. I got a headache and things went downhill from there. I took and nap and had a hard time getting off the couch. However, Cowboy and I were able to put up some shelves in the laundry room. That was exciting for me.

I did get a little shopping in, made dinner and got all but 2 bathrooms and the living room cleaned. So I guess the day was semi-productive. I'm still not feeling any better but I'm not feeling any worse.

Life is getting better

The move is over and I have unpacked every box in my office. I have huge piles of paper to go through but they are out of the box. I'm feeling a little more settled and am actually able to do a little more of my own work. The stress is much less.

Home, Cowboy and I have really been acting like newlyweds (wink, wink). We have skipped the gym for the last two mornings to get a little exercise in bed, if you know what I mean. Seriously, life is good at home.

I actually made dinner tonight. Cowboy has been carrying the load around the home and has even spent several hours at work with me hanging whatever I ask him to and unpacking boxes. So tonight, I made dinner and did the dishes.

Life is getting better!

Relaxing Again

So the move is over and we are starting to get settled. I have a long ways to go to get my office in order but I am feeling much better about work. My stress has gone down and I'm able to relax alittle.

This weekend we went to a benefit auction. It was fun and they had harp music. Cowboy became intrigued with the harpest. So much so that he helped her carry her harp out to her vehicle. He is so funny. He then started talking with the security guy. Who ended up knowing someone that he knew. Small world. But Cowboy talks to everyone.

Today I passed up a round of golf on the nicest course within 100 miles. I just didn't want to go. Cowboy took his girlfriend (neighbor, Stevie) and they had a great time. I went shopping and then to the office for about 3 hours. I got lots done and was happy that I went. That will help my week start a little smoother.

I know that I brag about Cowboy all the time but brace yourself, here is just one more story about how well he treats me. My feet have been killing me. Friday, he bought me a foot massager, bubbler soaker thingy. He found it at a garage sale for $2. It's awesome. Gotta love him for thinking of me.
