Black Friday

Black Friday, the day merchants wait for all year long.

My daughter plans to battle the crowds.

Me? I'm too chicken. I've jabbed elbows with the best of them years ago and have absolutely no desire to wade into the fray. Give me a break. I'm older and wiser.

And the $30 I'll save off the original model of Cricut just isn't worth it. I can scrapbook just fine without mechanical assistance. Besides, my husband thinks I have more than enough scrapbooking stuff already.

Can you really ever have enough??

Instead of biting and kicking my way through crowds and possibly contracting H1N1, I plan to work on the plot of my book, sit out on the deck and drink in all the projected warmth of the day. I'll go shopping TOMORROW!!

Yes, it's a sickness.

Pray for me.

BTW, this whole writing on the beach is a fantasy. You really don't want to see my office : )

Road Trip

My family and I took off to our place in Glasgow, MT last Wednesday. This is a 12 hour drive, mind you. Tucked into a land rolling farm fields surrounding a huge, gorgeous lake, I relax and regroup in the tranquil environment.


This trip, my husband, daughter and son discovered that the wonderland of deer hunting had sold out of the tags/permits they wanted to purchase to make their hunting vacation dreams come true.

We discovered the converter box necessary for analog television conversion since digital has filled our lives, didn't do squat for our reception. Annoying snow graced our screen until the faithful DVDs were popped into the player for entertainment.

As usual, no Internet connection.

Did I mention my kids are teenagers? 19 and 17? Bored teenagers are NOT a pretty sight. A bored husband either.

So, what should have been a relaxing retreat into the northern climes of Montana instead turned into a clash of wills and escalating tempers.

We packed up and drove 12 hours back to Longmont on Sunday.

It's taken me 2 days to get over the road-lag.

I still love the Glasgow area. The people are great and fields filled with cattle postcard perfect.

Next time, we'll go up in July or August when we can boat on the lake...
