Travel Day: Rhinelander, WI To Urbana, IL

With a long day ahead of us I was up at 5:30 am so that I could get a little quiet time before we needed to get moving.  However, Michael was up about 30 minutes later…so much for my ‘quiet me time’.  LOL Not much work to do this morning as Michael dumped last night. … Continue reading »

Fabulous End to Our Week in the Wisconsin Northwoods

Saturday 7/29 & Sunday 7/30 I had an 8:30 am breakfast date with 8 other ladies…4 of whom are very near and dear to my heart (my sister Vicki, nieces Tara & Nikki and my almost niece Sheila)!  We met at the Rhinelander Pub and Cafe to celebrate my niece, Nikki! Today after 3757 days … Continue reading »

Just Like Family

We spent a nice quiet day at home.  All that visiting makes one tired!  So we rested up so that we’re in tip-top shape for the rest of our visit here in the Wisconsin Northwoods! We spent a good portion of the day watching Sons of Anarchy, a series I’d heard about for years and … Continue reading »

More Visiting and a Movie too!

Thursday 7/27 Our semi-busy day started out slowly in the morning.  We didn’t have to be anywhere until noon so we just hung out at home getting a few miscellaneous chores done. We had a noon lunch date with my OLD Walmart co-worker, Linda O.  We met at Peking on her lunch hour…which was reminiscent … Continue reading »

A Visit from Retired MSGT St. John

Wednesday was a day of rest…almost! It rained most of the morning so we just stayed inside and hibernated.  I did quite a bit of work on a couple of  blog posts I’m working on for Heartland and Michael watched an episode of ‘Alone’ and did some surfing on the internet. In the afternoon I … Continue reading »

A Day of Visiting and Making Plans to Visit

Slept great last night thanks to the muscle relaxer.  Shoulder is still sore but feels better than after 200 miles on that bumpy road. Today was the first day of visits with family and friends.  First on the books was a visit with nieces Tracy & Karrie and their families.  Tracy and her husband Jeremy … Continue reading »

Travel Day: Elkhart, IN To Madison, WI

We were up shortly after 7:00 am, giving us plenty of time to relax, eat a donut (Rise ‘n Roll…still SO fresh!), make the bed and stow the very few things that were taken out. We were outside by 8:45 am ready to hitch up the truck and unhook the power.  When Michael went to … Continue reading »

Deal of the Day

The biggest reason we decided to stop in Elkhart was so that Michael could stop at Heartland and discuss the water leaks we have been experiencing.  He’s found where both (one in the under belly and one in the UDC) water leaks are originating and now needs to figure out how to proceed with fixing … Continue reading »

Travel Day: Dayton, OH To Elkhart, IN

Our month at Wright-Patterson has come to an end.  We’ve really enjoyed this area and neither of us are sure we’re ready to leave…but, leave we must, as we have a ‘thing’ to attend in northern Wisconsin in a few weeks. Our oldest son, Zack, and his family will be moving back to Wisconsin in … Continue reading »
