St. Patrick's Day Weekend and other misc. stuff
So we had no snow this past week and actually some pretty decent days weather wise. The weekend where Mike & I were off of course left things to be desired but that's how it goes I guess. Saturday it poured all day and was just a miserable day. So we ended up going into work for a few and then drove up to Oxford for a late lunch. Stopped at Two Steps later where they had all their Irish specials for St. Patrick's Day. St. Patrick's Day is such a bar/drinking holiday and all the bars have beer/drink and food specials usually. Everyone here in the US loves to pretend to be Irish on St. Patrick's Day. :)
Today we wanted to get out for a walk but when we arrived at the trail head we realized there was still a good 6 inches of snow on the trail. So we had to abandon that idea and went for lunch instead. It was pretty windy and even a little drizzly so I guess it was for the best. Just really want to get out and get some fresh air. During the warmer months we tend to visit different trails and enjoy activities outdoors. And it's just been too long since we have done that. Ugh.
My dad is currently in the hospital and scheduled for surgery tomorrow to remove some pre-cancerous polyps from his intestines. Please keep him in your mind. Never easy to be far away but especially during times like that. Been talking to him and my mom every day plus have my aunt to keep me in the loop as well so that's good.
Other than that not too much going on. Not sure what next week at work will bring. This past week was pretty hectic. So we will see. I am just ready for some true spring weather. I want all the snow to go away and for it to be nice enough to go outside without having to put on five different layers of clothes. Ugh.
Mail Update. A letter went out on Friday to: Charles/TN. Received letters from: Caroline/Scotland, Laura/Spain and Carmen/Malta.
