Time flies when you're old!

Why do the weeks go faster when you get older? That is a question I am always trying to answer and yet I can never seem to come up with a good answer! Another week has passed since I last blogged. Let's see, what did I do? The sad part is I can't remember and/or it was so pathetic, it's not worth mentioning!!! But I'll give it a try...

Ah yes, I remember now... last weekend we went camping up by Buffalo Creek! We had never stayed at that campground before (Buffalo) but Dan assured me we had been there before. It was about 15 years ago and the slope surrounding the campground was in "rebirth" after a fire. If that is true, then in 15 years, trees do grow fast!! It was very quiet there and a perfect place to retreat and relax. Yes, I said relax! We actually took a nap in the afternoon while a t-storm dumped rain on us! We talked by the campfire and ate s'mores (or the fixings separately)! It was rather enjoyable. We took a new route home that went along the South Platte River and it was beautiful! I think Dan will go back there and fish one of these days!

I have been busy this week at work with my assistant gone. I'm not getting much of my own stuff accomplished, but rather cleaning up some of hers. At least I only have 2 days left and Friday is bound to be easy before the holiday!

I haven't felt much like blogging or crafting in the evening this week. I think I'm in a little "funk" because yesterday was the anniversary of my mother's death. It's been 17 years and it almost seems like yesterday. Especially because 1 co-worker lost her mother yesterday and another's is very ill with cancer. All that brings back the memories of that dreaded weekend when we lost Mom. I was going to blog about it yesterday, but couldn't bring myself to it. Maybe later I will...

Isn't it crazy how no matter how long it's been, it still hurts so bad? My parents 54th wedding anniversary would have been yesterday, the 3rd. At least they were together again to celebrate. {{{hugs}}}} - lots of them!!
