So long Steve...




Remember this guy? Yes, Steve.





Dropped him off at the Minot "International" Airport this morning.


There he goes. Bye Steve. (Yes, I cried)


He's off to Oklahoma Christian University to be with his pals.


Life just got a little more interesting. Hum.


This will be the first time I have really lived by myself.... ever. Wow, that's weird. Forty-nine years. Course I'm not really alone, alone. I have my pet pooch. A whooping 7 pound 3 ounce yo-chon (yorkie, bichon mix) tuff guy. He's a little over a year old now. And of course daughter's family here in town. But it is all a little strange. I felt just a little like Scarlett at the end of Gone With The Wind this morning. What SHALL I do, where SHALL I go....

But really, I have my 40 hour a week job, Flynn (dog), watch granddaughter before and after school and plenty of....

  • Luckily, this happens to be the year North Dakota is setting record snowfall amounts. That means I will be able to really get in shape by spring. Oh ya, life is definitely interesting!
  • Steve got to Oklahoma just fine. Dad picked him up at the airport about 1 o'clock this afternoon. (House still has not sold.) Okay, so don't think bad of me but I am very much hoping for an early spring!!
  • Luckily, my daughter got me a present...Cinnamon Orange Spice Tea from SpecialTeas. It is WONDERFUL. Always nice to be able to sit back, relax a little with a great tasting tea during tea month with your pocket pooch, listen to some LPs, and think happy thoughts about spring!

I'm sorry about the empty nest. I'm sure it was so hard to see him go. I'm dreading the day already and Sweet Cheeks just turned seven! It sounds like you have lots to keep you busy though so I hope your day will still be full, bright and happy. :)

The snow is beautiful!
