One Word: HECTIC!
Whew, This week has been CrAzY! This shall be short and sweet, I told you the blogs may be scarce lately! Busy Days.
Besides cleaning my apartment up and working nonstop since we’re back from my good land of Minnesota this past weekend; I spent all day yesterday in my bed with the flu. Today:
I feel Epic.
This past weekend started off with a 7.5 hr road trip back home to Minnesota.
We ate lunch at Panera Bread and were off by 2pm. Arriving at the border just around dusk.
We kept ourselves busy by opening a few gifts along the way and listening to some tunes.
Four Apps To Survive A Car Trip:
TED: Ted.com is a pretty cool website that features ‘talks’ (videos) with experts from a wide range of subjects. The app lets you download and listen/watch to the talks on the go.
Medical Radio: This app “delivers world class medical content directly from ReachMD, the leader in medical education and information for medical professionals.” It can get rather technical, but even I enjoy listening to the short segments and hearing the variety of opinions.
Motion X GPS Drive: This app is only 99 cents and is just as good as any Garmin. Best of all – it TALKS the directions to you!
Phone Games: Best… games… ever. I should have developed a callous on my thumb from these game. Seriously. It’s bad. I’m addicted. The first step is admitting you have a problem.
What keeps your mind occupied on car trips? Any favorite apps I need to download before our next long haul?
This past weekend is definitely one of those weekends.
Good with the Bad.
I think that is going without saying that watching someone you love (my grandparents) grow older and get sick blows. There’s not a nice way to put it. It’s horrible. I try to be an optimistic person, and life is so wonderful and amazing, but this is one aspect of reality that I just can’t wrap up in a pretty bow and say, “It’s alright.” Because it’s not, and it really never is. It’s just hard to say Hello and Goodbye when the chances of a last Goodbye is much more apparent.
There’s always some good with the bad, right? I guess you just have to make the effort to look for it.
There were great parts of the weekend.
Board Games! Including massive “intense” games of Pictionary.
Gifts were opened:
My sister knows me well:
Little Mermaid 2 was watched (my how technology has changed):
Food was demolished:
a short and sweet weekend that ended far too soon!
Can anyone guess why December 23rd is another day of celebration?
Find out in my next post!
I have several upcoming post ideas you don’t want to miss! And the blog deadlock will soon be reopen!
Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!
