I'm sure it's fake, although I wouldn't touch it! Your bedroom furniture is wonderful and looks elegant, yet homey. Need to plan a visit SOON!!

The bald eagles are beautiful, but they DO look intimidating. What a gorgeous place you live in, both inside and out!!

After your awful commute, I'm sure the car vacation was much needed! I love your glass and need to commission some soap dishes from you!

I hadn't thought of it that way but every party suite needs a boring middle aged woman eating snacks and drinking water! :-) Kimchee is spicy and one has to like cabbage and pickled things.

I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I do!

The heated seat, the many functions it does--it's wonderful!However, American bathrooms aren't wired for them, since they need to plug into an electrical outlet :(

But how exciting! The to-do list is getting shorter, your extraneous stuff is being "flung" and spring seems to already be here!

Congrats to Nate! I love Cheesecake Factory! Love how your china cabinet looks--expect a visitor some time in April. (after I recover from Korea) :)

It's looking so amazing, T! Very beautiful and yet warm and homey. Your china is truly special and lovely. The color looks made for your house.

It's looking more and more put together and you are definitely making progress. One step at a time, my dear. :)

Good for you on everything, including the vaping. I would think it would have to be somewhat better; is it cheaper also? Moving is always such a great opportunity to purge and organize, but WHAT an enormous amount of work. Ugh.

Love the photo! You are sounding so much more relaxed and that is definitely good for your health and sanity. :)

How wonderful to go out to lunch--such a huge treat! I love teaching, but gobbling down leftovers in 20 minutes and not having bathroom freedom are two major drawbacks. :)
Toggle Commented Feb 12, 2015 on Too. Much. Food. at Kingfisher Cove
I sent a bunch of wool(smart wool) socks for that reason; I knew she wouldn't be able to dry them! I hate damp things so it would drive me nuts! Part of me wishes that I'd watched the game, but I'm also glad to just see the great last 4 minutes and also happy that most of my house is cleaner. :)

I started watching with my dad, but when things went sour, I couldn't bear to continue. I kept up with FB and a live action ap--just couldn't stand the stress. So, YAY!! Maybe we should both go to a movie for the Superbowl. :)
I am a bit jealous--but your job is SO AWFUL and mine is generally fine to great. So, I can't complain. The house is definitely looking like a home! I am nervous/excited about the Seahawks too. The last game was awesome; Kam Chancellor, Russell Wilson, the receivers, WOW.

This is all exciting news,especially the wonderful visit with Nate and Sandra and the (take this job and shove it!) news. :) Hoping for the best on the Oly job!

May your travels bring you joy and peace.
Toggle Commented Jan 1, 2015 on On the Road, again at A Life in Wales
I definitely need to do some shopping for long shirts and sweaters. The ones I thought would work aren't long enough. (although I am wearing leggings and not tights) And as Zazzy says, I would love some color to go with the black. However, I hate shopping, so this will be painful!!

Glad to see you back and the family doing so well!

I always look at life as a bunch of roads, and detours, with potholes and beautiful/awful scenery; my goal is to enjoy the "view" along whatever one I'm on. It's very difficult some days though. I wanted to stay where I was, not be forced to deal with this new direction.

Yeah, busy airwaves indeed! No matter how many times I tell myself that I could be overreacting, I remember how awful it is to be blindsided. I would rather be relieved than devastated.

I still carry Alison on my insurance, which is no good there, but she does have health insurance through her job. I'm not sure how good it is though or how much it pays for. I've offered to help. A similar but not as expensive or devastating a thing happened to my brother in Hawaii when he was injured on a coral reef. I don't know that his insurance company paid, or if they did it was just a percentage of the cost. Thank you for your kind comments; I wish I felt more amazing some days, instead of like a tired, grumpy, middle-aged teacher. LOL

It doesn't affect the outcome, but it does let go of some of the worry. It's almost like saying, "I have no control over this," which is definitely the case in many situations. :) Mom is making lots of progress and nearly back to normal. That STUPID STATIN!!

I agree! I look at the temp in my car and say, NO WAY. It feels like 20! I know we're cold weather wimps, but still! So happy for you that the kids are coming home(in spite of the complexity) and a bit envious. I'm glad that Alison and Kramer will get to see Japan while they're over there, but it will be my first Christmas without her. The bathroom is lovely;I can't wait to use it! :)
