Another year has flown by, even though it feels like it was only yesterday that I was making my first Thanksgiving turkey in my new kitchen! It's hard to believe that it's already been a year, and thinking back I have so much to be thankful for that I don't even know where to begin.

Two years ago I wrote a blog post to parents. Two years later...I still send this plea out. Growing up in today's world is not an easy task. Things have changed so much, and the pressures are much different. Take a moment to click on this link to my blog post from November 29, 2011. If you like it, leave me a comment. If you like it...share it. If you like it...live it.

Tomatillo, what? More like...REAL Housewife of Snohomish County, WHAT?!? I know, I've been absent so long from my blog I'm surprised that people are even still checking it out! How about this...it was actually on purpose, I wanted you all to go all the way back to post number 1 and read everything! :) Have you? No? What?! Why not? **See how I shifted the blame here!** :) Well I suppose I should really talk about what I'm here to talk about...tomatillos.

This morning I sat on the couch doing something that I don't do very often. I planned out meals for the next three days. Now for some people that is a normal thing, they plan out their meals a week in advance and make one trip to the store every week. I'm not like that though...I love to go to the store almost every day, see the wonderful ladies at QFC, and get my requisite daily outing done. :) But today was different. The workers of some of the major grocery stores could be striking soon.

Okay...I'm not going to lie....I'm getting old! After a full day of walking around I looked at my husband and uttered the words..."I'm too old for this." I know...pathetic right? Well remember...in the past week we've done a fair bit of walking, driving, hiking, zip lining and stair climbing! I think it's finally starting to catch up to me. But that being said, today was a wonderful day here in Portland.

Well...we are at our next destination! Where is it? Is it killing you because I haven't told you yet? Or are you like...I follow you on Facebook and Instagram...I know where you are. Well...if you don't know yet...I'm about to tell you.

I wish that I could say that today I sat on the couch the entire day, eating bon-bons and drinking wine. But that would be nothing but a big, fat lie! Today, just like any other day in the life of a housewife, was busy. My husband may be on vacation, and we may be in between mini vacations...but my job never really does stop.
Monday, October 7, 2013
Now I did say at the beginning of this series of posts that it was TWO mini vacations. Now I wasn't lying about that at all! Today, we made our way back to the United States...back to our home where we'll be for the next day or so. But have no fear my faithful readers...we will be back on the road shortly!

What a busy day it was today! We started at 6 AM when the alarm rang. And again...Dolly Parton's song was rolling through my brain as I tried to get my day started. We wanted to make sure we made it up to Whistler with plenty of time. And we accomplished that goal! :)

I realize that it's been quite some time that I've actually posted a blog...and for that I'm sorry. Life has been crazy, and I know I always say that...but it's the truth. I've been busy building the new chicken coop to replace the old house/flower bed part of the current one, and then Michael had a little sickness as well. So things have just been a little off, but I agree...it's no excuse. But I'm here to tell you that you'll be getting quite a few posts this week! :) Aren't you happy?

I realize that I'm the person who always seems to go "over the top" when making dinner. But there are some days that I really don't want to put much effort into things. And some days it's that I have a million things to do, and when it comes time to sit down for dinner...I don't want to be spending 3 hours to get me there. It is then, my friends, when the crock pot comes out of it's spot behind my Le Creuset pots.

I've realized lately that having this blog is a good way for me to not only get out my daily musings, but it's a place to bring up issues in my life or the world around me. And this is one of those moments when I come to my readers to ask for your help and support.
