This weekend I am vegging.  I am going to sit in the sun (wearing a hat, lesson learned), do some light gardening, sip on some iced tea and just veg.  Might even throw in a nap or two.

Heading to the beautiful mountains of NC for a girls weekend - with my 2 daughters.  I am soooooo blessed.

Starting to enjoy life and 2.5 years NED.

These special milestones in life are even sweeter, imo, given what we have to go through to be here to see them.

I'm planning to do some much needed gardening - while trying to stay out of the poison ivy this time around.  :-}  Then a little cookout with Rick's family on Monday, and hoping to see his kids too.  (Fingers and toes crossed on that one....)

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!

They got married this past September.  This will be our first visit to their new home.  I'm excited!

My husband gets his port tomorrow, so we're planning on sticking around this weekend.

If he feels fine and is going stircrazy, we might head to the coast for a night. It's our favorite place to decompress.

Nothing specific for me. May join a friend at DAV for their activities. Had planned a yard sale, but my son opted out as he's been working extra hours and is tired out. House looks like a badly arranged thrift shop after bringing home the last of stuff from my cabin to be sold. Sad to sell my little home of 44 years, but "life happens". Will be off to Kentucky & JBG soon.

Luv,

Wolfen

Wow, I'm 44 same as as your house. Can't wait to hear your new adventures. Do you have a pair of pruning sheers? Can't figure out for the life of me where mine went.

Actually found 3 pair of those. My precious hubby could never just buy ONE of anything. Have sold a lot of it, but could probably have opened my own hardware store.

Luv,

Wolfen

I buy one of everything except at yardsales. You can get some great stuff at those. No gardening sheers though={ I've been looking.

As long as he doesn't have to drive, doesn't have a fever, I bet he'll be just fine. 

No beach volley ball though. 

I hope you get to the coast. I can't think of a better way to heal. All that wonderful sea air.

after we got home from the procedure, he took a nap. when he woke up, he was trying to figure out what to do -- and he decided to do work. Not my idea of a fun Friday night, but I think he's happy to feel productive. This week has been so interrupted. I think he had two days without any appointments. I think hè has two next week, and then he'll start chemo/radiation...

My husband will be working, my boys are going to the big city hunting for a new truck and I'll be home, alone (time for some cheese with my whine).  Maybe I'll pop to the local yogurt shop that just opened and have a treat. I'll stop by the cemetary and say hi to my Father-in-law and niece.  

I'll also raise a glass to my loved ones who have passed. I raise a glass on their birthdays, but this would be a good time too.

in the San Juan Islands, our traditional Memoral Day trip.  But it's pouring here, so we're holding off until Sunday, see if it improves.

A little rain (or a lot, as we tend to have here in WA), never used to deter to me, but I'm turning into an old lady.  I think my days of hardocre camping may be behind me.

Hope everyone has a good weekend, whatever your plans!

You and me both. I was out in the pouring rain for 15 minutes today and I was whining.  The old me would have jumped in a few puddles. Hope your weekend is relaxing and dry!

Long weekend at a rental in Cape Cod on a lake.  Beautiful area and so quiet and peaceful, but 10 mins to the busy crazy fun Cape.  Celebrating our 23rd anniversary on Sunday...hard to believe it's been 23 yrs...

Like Jen, I am on the Cape.  Love this place.  It is good to hear all the 'normal' things people here are doing...in spite of the 'new normal' life we lead.  That said, Jeff, be safe on that bike! :)

Twins!!  I am an identical twin. What joy!

Remembering those who served. 

Savor the day.

Sorry you are here, but now that you are, why don't you open a new thread and tell us a bit about yourself and how you found yourself on this journey and how you are doing.
