Burst my Bubble

Morning.  For all of you holding your breath for amazing Hot Air Balloon Ride pics….exhale.  They’re not here.  Our trip got cancelled/post-poned due to winds.  Now, is the task to reschedule, but I think we might try again in as soon as 2 weeks.  I’ll keep you posted.
Hubby and I still took advantage of an overnight babysitter for kidlet and we were going to head to Wausau anyway, but I realized that was kind of pointless seeing that we had just been there and we need to go back this week to pick up our new car.  So, I changed plans and we headed to Minocqua for the afternoon. 
We walked the shops and on the hottest day of the year, I purchased hand knit gloves for me and mittens for kidlet. (–It’s me.  In my world it makes sense.)  We then headed to the Casino for supper and each used $20 in the slots.  It was nice. 
I got home last night to find a message on our machine that Grandpa is in Intensive Care with Pneumonia.  My Grandma expects hum to stay there for a few days yet.  If you’d all keep him in your thought and prayers, I’d appreciate it.
I don’t know what’s on the agenda for today.  Not much, I suppose…afterall, it is a holiday.  I’m keeping an eye on my Grandpa’s situation and debating a trip there this week.  We shall see.

Screwy Anniversary

Wow.  I guess I’ve been married 5 years today.  Doesn’t seem like it.  Some days it feels like forever and some days feels like just yesterday.  It’s been a great 5 years though….full of ups and downs, trips, boredom and curve-balls, arguments and I’m sorry’s.  We can still carry a conversation without saying a word, finish each others sentences and 90% of the time, we’re thinking the exact same thing.  I couldn’t ask for more.
Nothing planned for today to celebrate…but tomorrow we’re celebrating in a big way with a Hot Air Balloon Ride.  Wow, I can’t believe it’s tomorrow.  The weatherman has been busy dashing my hopes for flight tomorrow by putting “Breezy” in the forecast, but looking closer, winds seem good for Sunday Night. YAY!  
Yesterday, Hubby and I had the day together alone by both taking off of work and taking kidlet to Day Care.  We used it by cleaning the house and building raised-bed for a veggie garden next year. (God, I feel old writing that.) BUT–I got to play with power tools!!  

I screwed these!! (You know what I mean) 😛

AND NO INJURIES!  I’m a little sore today, but that’s because I’m a pansy.  Hubby says we have more work to do out there today….somehow, I’m less enthusiastic today. 
Anway, I guess that’s all the news here for the minute.  Hopefully, I will have an OUTSTANDING post for Monday 🙂

It’s a GO!!!!!

Wow.  Big news today.  The Hot Air Balloon Ride is a Go!!!!!  I talked to Hubby yesterday and he agrees that it’s a good idea.  So, I have the go-ahead to do more research and let him know how much money we have to save for it.  I told him in exchange for this awesome experience, we don’t have to do gifts.  I think that was a big selling-point.
We also got to go out last night.  It was an early night though as most everyone was tired.  We were home at midnight, which was fine.  I got some really bad pics of me last night though.  Feel free to laugh.  It’s why I write this thing:

Crystal, Sally and I

Tony (also known as “Chef”) and I

There was also a new drink (at least to me) last night.  Vanilla Doc, Cranberry Juice and Cream.  Oooh la-la! 😉
Next week is just movie night at home with Hubby and I.  Although, I do have to say that having a Social Life again is REALLY nice.  I’m going to miss it come the end of Camp.  That’s the ONLY thing I’ll miss though.

Full of Hot Air

This August make 5 years Hubby and I have been married.  As always, he wanted to go Camping.  Umm, no.  Not this year.  I took a look at my “Bucket List” and thought maybe we should use this mildstone as an excuse to take a Hot Air Balloon Ride.  So, I’ve been pricing and at $184.36/person it’s expensive, but I can’t help to think still worth it.  I mean, really, it’s a once in a lifetime thing.  So, I’m going to do my best to make it happen.  I don’t think it will take too much pleading to have Hubby agree.  Hell, I’m even willing to sleep in the car and pack our food to make it happen. 
I’ve asked our friends along (Grace’s Godparents) and I honestly expected a “no” right off the bat seeing they’re having a baby July 10th.  But they surprised me in wanting to know more details before they decide.  So, I’m REALLY excited about that.  I think I’ll talk to Hubby more about it today.  We only live once and I want to make the most of it!

I was hoping for a family trip back to the park this afternoon, but there’s a 60% of thunderstorms with small hail.  
We’re also hoping to go out tonight, as this is the last weekend Hubby’s Boss is here before he leaves for his new job in Pittsburgh.  We really like him and are going to miss him so much.  As I write this Hubby is scouring Camp for a Babysitter tonight.  Wish us luck!
