I know, I know! It's been a long time since my last post but man have things moved right along in my life.
First, we now have a 32 ft Trailer Camper. I love it, no more tent beds. Second, I RETIRED IN OCTOBER! How great is that. We spent all of October and most of November in the new camper. Only went to the house 4 times for only about 2 hours, just to check
on things and get a few items we needed.
We hooked up the camper and went to Cincinnati for Thanksgiving at my Daughter's house. I got to meet her boyfriend's parents. They were extremely nice and fun to be around. Tia and Ben fixed a beautiful Thanksgiving Dinner. No one should have gone away
hungry. We also got to meet our new GrandPuppy, Carter. He is just adorable. He is a Maltese and Mac thought he was great.
After that, we left for Florida. We are at a Great Camping Community in central Florida. We are going to winter here until March. (La-T- Da, LOL). So now we are Snowbirds. The people here have been awesome and very friendly. I have not seen such friendly
people. Just going for a walk and everyone that is out says Hi.
We have barbequed, made crockpot meals and just the usual stuff. However, we are going to start the new year out right. Plan menus, cut coupons, eat healthier and get some more exercise. Shouldn't be hard as the park is about 3 miles if you walk every road
and they have a gym. Don't expect to use the gym too much but the walks are great. It is never too cold, just rainy sometimes.
Of course since tonight is still 2012, the menu isn't exactly the most healthy but it is our traditional menu scaled back to a much smaller list of items and quantities. It is designed to nibble on all evening, but still be filling. We are having:
Mussels in white wine sauce w/croutons
WildCats (Steak Tartare)
Buffalo Chicken Dip
We will snack and watch all the traditional New Year's Eve festivities and if we can stay up until midnight, sit outside and welcome in the New Year.
In closing, we wish each and everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR! Remember our blessings, take note of our mistakes (so we don't do it again) and look forward to a happier, healthier and even more blessed New Year.
