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.


Narcoleptic Living…..Zzzzz

Sorry I’ve been MIA for a few.  Not much going on, just daily life.  Kidlet is having a hard time sleeping at night, even with letting her cry it out.  Guess I will have to consider taking Kidlet to the Dr…in case it’s heartburn or something like that.  In the meantime, surviving on sleep deprivation is getting old. 
I’m enjoying some time off of work as I write this.  Hubby and I both took Friday off of work, and we’ll enjoy the first day together (as in “just us”) in four months, as Kidlet will go to Day Care that day.  I’m pretty excited.  With having Friday off, and Monday being a Holiday, I don’t have to be back in the shop until next Friday.  Yay!
Tomorrow is a trip to Wausau.  Hubby has a meeting there, and he’ll drop me off at Barnes & Noble where I will meet my best friend and hang out for a bit.  After 12:00p.m. Hubby will pick me up and we’ll head to the car dealership and possibly trade in our ’05 Grand Am in an effort to get lower monthly payments.  We’ll see.  I’m not sure what we have going on Saturday, but pending good weather, our Hot Air Balloon Ride is Sunday!!!!!!!  I’m so exited!!  I’m trying not to get my hopes up too much, as the weather forecast calls for Sunday to be breezy, but a girl can still hope. 🙂
Anyway, I have some more pics of my gorgeous Orchid…as it’s ALL in Bloom now!  Enjoy!
