Last weekend Clint and I were able to mark off one item on our bucket list. We have a friend in Chicago that we have played WOW with for 10 years and we wanted to meet him. Well we accomplished that goal!!
I was so excited to finally meet face to face. We also got to meet his brother, who we also played wow with, his beautiful wife and daughter. It was an amazing trip!
This was probably the first time we have flown in 8 years. Lots have change. I was amazed at the difference in airport security. Here – get out all fluid containing products, put in separate bin, take off shoes… you know the usual. In Chicago leave everything in your bag, leave your shoes ON, wait for the dog to sniff you. Such two totally different experiences.
In Chicago we went to dinner at HopLeaf Bar. Amazing food and an incredible beer selection. The only drawback was it was dark and we are all getting to the point where my flashlight on my phone came in very handy🙂.
We rode in an Uber, cab and a rental car you can get for only 4 hours. We walked lots. Had a Chicago hotdog, this is an experience, and visited the Willis Tower(formerly known as the Sears Tower).
I am so blessed to have been able to do this bucket list item with my best friend, my love.
My hubs at the Willis tower, out on the pure glass platform.
Yesterday started with some Fightmaster Yoga for me, then some inversion work in the form of headstands and scorpion pose.
Spent some time in the am playing World of Warcraft. Yes the new expansion has arrived and it is, at this time, the most fun I have had playing wow in years.
The hubs and I went to a local veggie stand for some end of year goodness. Spaghetti squash were 3 for $1.00, talk about a steal, should have purchased more. We also got a hubbard squash to try. Had that for dinner last night and it was delicious! Looks weird, tastes great.
We then went shooting with the kids. Guns and compund bow! I shot the GF’s compound bow. First time I have ever shot one, it was fun! Hit the target on the second arrow. The son brought a bird target for the pistols and I shot the hell out of the metal stand that bird was on.
Next was 9 holes of disc golf. Discs, dogs, kids and beautiful fall weather equals fun!
To top of the day we had beer and a movie.
To me that was a perfect fall day. Sunshine and videogames, family time spent together with enjoyable activities.
The hubs decided he wants to try Elk hunting this year, I agree as it has to be cheaper then trying to find any grassfed beef around here. The cost of beef is amazing!
How was your Saturday!
Good Morning! I just wanted to update you on Clint and how he is doing.🙂
I am so amazed by this man. He goes to his counseling sessions, does the homework the counselor assigns and is doing his best to become whole and mentally healthy. The work is hard, the thoughts can be defeating. I am so proud of him!
He takes his medicine, he goes to counseling, he wakes up every day and does it again. This is what a real man does.
I am so very lucky I get to spend my life with him. I believe I do not tell him often enough how important he is to me. Or how blown away I am by his dedication to recovery.
Yesterday was the 2nd annual DJ Memorial. The hubs and I played last year…….lets just say we played. This year though…..the hubs was +6 after the first round. Let me also say that the first and second round was 23 holes as the young guys created more holes for us to throw. WOOT!!! to the hubs. Great job! The second round was safari hard as h311. We finished and had a great time.
I did make CTP, closest to pin, on 3 separate holes if you make it closest to the basket your name goes on a flag and you get a reward. Each of the three holes is a separate attempt. I only made one of the attempts but, woohoo!!!!
Isn’t she beautiful!
Even factoring in the safari round I had the best game I have ever played. I came in second in the women. Ok There were only three of us but still first time I have placed.
They give prizes for that shit! Amazing!
We got to spend time with the son and his gf and the other son’s wife. Great family time and great exercise.
Thank you boys for introducing dad and I to this incredible sport. We get to meet wonderful people and stay connected to family. Love you boys!

Are you in?
The son’s GF had a birthday this week. Everyone got together at the other son’s house. The grandkids enjoy playing Pokémon Go. Although not as much as the parents🙂. All the adult kids play this crazy game. The son’s house is an EZ zone? The hubs and I both downloaded the game to our phones and let the grandkids go crazy. When I left the party I was already a level 4 and I had not done a thing.
First Pokémon picture taken with my phone.
I have some questions about this game I need answers to
1. How do you get more pokey balls? (yes that is a thing.)
2. Why is my house a dead zone?
3. What do I do with the critters after I catch them?
4. Do they level up as I level up?
Maybe the dogs will get more walking in with this game as we traverse the neighborhood.
Do you play?
Good morning loves! Yes I took a few weeks off. The hubs and I did lots of fun things I will try to condense down for you.
The a few days after the 4th was my birthday…..old as shit, yes! The hubs took me to Ouray Colorado for the weekend. We went hiking, walked the town as tourists, ate great food and generally just relaxed.
The next weekend we went disc golfing with the son in Montrose. Unfortunately we were not able to finish all 18 as his dog tore the pads on his paws. Poor guy had to wear dog socks for the next week.
Last weekend we went camping…..for the first time in 20 years! We went to a Disc golf tournament in Newcastle Colorado. Small town yet was over 2 hours away. The kids were all going camping so we borrowed the in-laws pop up and ventured into the wild. We had so much fun. Throwing discs, drinking beer spending time together. That is what weekends are for.
I love my family and am glad the hubs is still here for our adventures!
The rest of the summer may be hit or miss as I want to enjoy the days with my family……I am sure you understand😉
