Vroom, Vroom, Vroom…

That’s what the days seem like lately. I have good intentions of writing blog entries as close to daily as possible, but the time gets filled up with stuff, and before I know it, several days have gone by!

So, let me catch up on recent events…


Sunday dawned as a picture perfect day with a clear blue sky. SO much nicer than the gray day we had on Saturday. In the morning, the roads were still wet, but by afternoon they had dried for our trip home to NY.




Schaun opened his presents, and once the “boring” ones were out of the way, proceeded to have a good time with the fun gifts. I guess I should probably say that both Schaun and Papa had a good time playing while I amused myself by capturing all the moments.

All too soon, we had to be hitting the road for the trip home.


On the home front, we have been spending time once again at the local fitness center. My company gave all of its employees a one year membership to Planet Fitness as a holiday gift, and Harry and I interpreted that as a sign that we should get ourselves moving and maybe even get in shape. We set up a schedule for ourselves and have been going to the gym for an hour five days a week. We are both feeling better already just two weeks into our new routine, but a side effect has been that our already short weekday evenings are now even shorter.

The weather has been pretty nice. We did have a little cold snap and the snow last weekend, but today the high was in the mid 40s. It felt like spring. Our snow has just about melted away again. We both have spring fever already, and are looking forward to our first trip of the season, which is now 115 days away!

We haven’t had much time to work on the house over the past week and a half or so, but this weekend are planning to get back to it.


  1. That looks like a fun and colorful toy. Good for you both for getting to the gym and getting in shape.

  2. I applaud you guys for getting to the gym. I wish I had more motivation!

  3. Keep up with the motivation because you may be using time now but with the increase in energy you will have, you'll be flying through those chores like there's no tomorrow.

    Once those chores are all done and your out fulltiming you'll feel like Exploring. Enjoy!

    It's about time.
