I am back!

It's been a while hasn't it?
I am sitting on my couch, feet up, sipping tea and just relaxing. My house needs to be cleaned, laundry desperately needs to be done but here I sit. I am a little weary, and a little sad.
KingK's family from Belfast N.Ireland were here for 2 weeks and have returned home. And I miss them already. We were able to cram in quite a bit of sightseeing while they were here. It was chaotic, a little noisy and absolutely fabulous! Since we said our goodbyes at the airport, I can't stop thinking about how amazing they are and how badly I wish we were not so far apart...

An approx 9 hour flight, if we were to go non-stop (which is not really an option, there is always a stop in London that comes with some sort of lay over, boo!). Sadly not a trip we can make easily.

Anyways, so while I sit here, just kind of "recovering" from the hustle and bustle of all the fun, I am grateful. So very grateful. How fortunate we are to have such great memories and great family on both sides of our family tree.

Cheers to our wonderful family, here in Canada and abroad!

And for other news? Well, there isn't any really. I did reactivate my facebook account after being off for a few years.I guess that might be news. I have been pretty anti facebook as I have seen the drama it can cause. I like to stay in the no drama zone as much as possible.

I am still not totally pro-facebook but I have conceded that it will allow to me to keep in touch with family easier. I still have a few issues with how some use facebook and how much it is used by some but I have to admit, I do see some value in how it allows us to keep in touch. So I won't be posting any status's really, no play by plays of how my day is going. I won't be using it as a platform to air dirty laundry or send cowardly messages venting my beefs with anyone. I might send a message now and then to say Hi or invite someone to an upcoming event though. And I will absolutely comment on the lovely family pics and tell them how great they look or how proud I am off them! And at the first sign of drama...I am out of there again. Some people can't live without checking their facebook...I am not one of them. I know from experience that I am fine without it. Shocking right?

And that's me for today...

Over and out!
