Coming to an end

Today is our last day of vacation, or our "staycation".  We've enjoyed hanging around the house, doing some odds and ends, our day trip to Austin, the Apple Store, the Lego Store, lunch at California Pizza Kitchen, and Chuy's with Russell.  It was a lot of fun mixed in with some relaxation and rest.

We would've loved to gone to Vegas and seen all (or as many as is humanly possible) our friends and family.  Oh the places we would've seen:

  • The Las Vegas Strip (new hotels and lights)
  • The shopping (outlet malls, Big malls, and of course, Target)
  • The Restaurants - Macayo's, Metro Pizza, In-N-Out Burger, Settobello, In-N-Out Burger, and many, many more
  • The Hoover Dam
  • The big Dinosaur on I-40
  • Big Brown Mountains
We would've had Sonic Route 44 limeades without the weird tasting water.  We would've had Papa Murphy's Pizza with stories and fun times.  At Bert and Alisa's we would've watched the kids frolic in the pool saying "watch me Uncle Jim, I can do this, and this and" you get the picture.

We had great plans to visit our old Ward.  To see Cardon and Karen, to see Janae, and Debra, and Jimmie Perry Jones.  It was to be a great whirlwind tour of the valley.

Instead, we ate sandwiches, bought a new bedroom comforter set, going to buy paint for the bedroom, we ate peanut butter on crackers, watched movies - the last airbender, Killers, Salt, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, The Hangover, Valentine's Day, A Single Man, Everybody's Fine, and a slew of HGTV, Food Network, and DIY along with some HBO.  We ate with the Mock's and the Lackmeyers and had a great visit from Russell for the day.

Princess slept in every day until at least 8:00 AM - she was in Heaven.

We cared for our Sasha, who is making small progress towards feeling better.  The vet said it could take up to a month or longer, poor thing.

We are truly blessed and thankful for friends, families, and good times.  Tomorrow we are back to work, it's going to be a long hot week here in Central Texas with temperatures above the 100 F mark all week.

I'll post some pictures later from our "staycation".
