It seems here lately that my energy level has been, well, non existent. So after a visit to the doctor and a change in blood pressure pills, I am beginning to see a glimmer of life out of the recliner. The weather this week has also contributed to a new "spring" in my step. Maybe I can sow some wild oats this weekend!
My summer is shaping up to be different from what I am used to. I am going to be blessed with my nephew's fiancee for the summer. It will be a real change for me to actually have someone to talk to at night around here. Hope I have not turned into grumpy old "Maxine" and Lauren will enjoy her stay. I know it will be nice for me to get to know her better.
And now for the big news . . . . . drumroll please. . . . . another trip to Alaska is in the making!!! I have been missing my four Alaskans rather severely the last few weeks so with the help of Uncle Sam's rebate or whatever it is called, I'm off to the frozen land this month. Since it is still snowing out there, I have invested (no exaggeration) in a down jacket to take with me. We hope to go north and see Denali up close this trip. That would be awesome. I talk to the girls almost every day but it is not enough so I'm off once again. I just wish I could bring them all home with me.
