My Life Updated:

Firstly, My husband can breathe now. We are all done with the plague and the plague is all done with us.

Secondly, I went to visit my parents in South Carolina recently for a family reunion of sorts....all of us children got together. (Except one brother.)

My mom took up a strange hobby when she retired, she shoots pistols. She also packs one in her purse which is kind of scary.

While I was there, my sister was telling me a funny story about when she and my mother went to a shooting range recently and the manager of the range was showing my sister how to shoot. He left them both alone together in the same cubby to shoot at the targets.

During that time my mom had an itch on her back so she reached under her shirt and scratched it.

Later on the manager came back to check on them and panicked. He apologized over and over again to them saying, "I'm so sorry, nothing like this ever happened before." My sister and mother were confused. He was about to call an ambulance when my sister looked at my mom's back and saw a perfectly round blood stain spreading. It looked like she had been shot, when in fact, she just scratched open a scab. They all got a good laugh.

During the visit I got to see my little nieces from Colorado, my baby brother's children. It was so wonderful to see them, I don't get to see them too often. Whenever I go to Colorado I find if very difficult to breathe. That and the fact that I don't possess the funds I used to so I can't just travel across the country whenever I'd like.

My youngest niece, age 4, looks and acts exactly like me. In fact, when I was younger I used to suck on my left index finger upside down. She does the same thing! You wouldn't think that something like that passes on through genes, right? Weird. Looking at her was like looking at a mirror 46 years ago.

So my family and I went to sit by the ocean one day. I really miss the ocean now that I live in Northern Connecticut. It was so relaxing and beautiful.

My littlest niece (the clone of me) got a little sunburn. When we got back to my parent's condo my mom said she had something to help sooth the burn. She slathered on some cream and my niece started complaining about it. When my sister-in-law looked closely at the bottle of cream my mom used she quickly washed it off. My mom had put on hair remover. Ouch! She won't have to worry about any unsightly back hair for awhile.

Lastly, my daughter and her fiance came to visit this weekend and she helped fix my header and give me a new look. Yeah!

Finally, Yew Nork Babe has her head back.

Thanks for the comment and prayers. I know God is in control. Right now things are easy because I am here and I haven't seen my house. I can't even imagine what it's going to be like when I get home.

YOur mom sounds like quite the lady! It's great that you had such a good reunion.

If you ever do make it back to Colorado, we'll have to get together!

I had a good laugh over your mom's incident while shooting!

Much aloha from Hawaii!! Mahalo for stopping by my blog! It would be great if your daughter married here; so many people come for destination weddings! A second choice might be San Diego. That's where I was raised and where I was married!

Hope to see you again!
