hola from mexico found a computer at the new hotel I´m at until tomorrow...thought I´d give all my fans a shout-out....hahahaha...Wedding went well but everyone got sick from a neuroviris...I guess its like the bug people get on the cruise ships. The party that was at the hotel last week were sick, but it took until are party fell for the hotel to figure out what was going on...Poor Mary and Corey...alot of people were down for the count for alot of the festivities.

The wedding was super nice...Mary looked like a fairy tale princess. The weather is great sunny and 80 every day. I´m ready to get home...I miss you Chuck.

Take care all..more when I get home tomorrow, plus took a ton of pix...I know you all can´t wait for all the awesome scrapbook pages I´ll

meltdown + random thoughts

all is well today altho yesterday had a total a complete crying tantrum meltdown on the driveway....I'm sure the neighbors were impressed with the new people....had to go thru all my crap in the garage so Chuck could fit his crap in there. it felt so overwhelming. it was overwhelming!! After a good sob, I was able to get almost everything in the house or sorted....feel alot better I just have to go thru all the boxes....some of the stuff is from when I moved from EP 3 years that bad?...YES

...feels like spring today...its so warm...about50...lots of sunshine.

I'm enjoying having Chuck's cats here....they're sweet....hopefully it will stay that way...Bubba likes to lick plastic which is kinda funny to watch.

My craft room is looking smaller and smaller with each thing I bring up here.

Loving our new house...
