I have been married for 40 years, to my best friend. We have two beautiful daughters and two cats, Sam cat who is 17 and Bessie who is 5. Moved to Montana in 1974 from New Jersey and have never looked back. I work for an Alternative High School and it is the best job I have ever had (except for being a Mom) I call this my retirement job - it's part-time, I can do it till I retire which will be after this year, and it is so much fun! I use my blog as a secondary journal, to keep a record of the events in my life.
Oooo, what a chair, if I could have one chair, this would be it!

Single for a Weekend!
Well, when I heard the hubby was going to Denver for a business trip, I started making lists. Now most folks would be giddy over the aspect of: nights out with friends, hours of shopping, restaurants to sample. Not me. I was giddy over the aspect of having the house all to myself. Now don't get me wrong. I love, love my husband, but I have never lived alone, and so when I am offered 3 full days of alone, only me, okay maybe the cat, time, I do my happy dance and pull out the paper and pen. First on the list? A trip to the store for some food favorites that do not have to be cooked! A treat or two. A pampering session with my hair dresser, with the result of a shorter sassier hair-do, which goes so well with my present state of mind. Add a new series that I just received from Netflix. "The Buccaneer's!" adapted from the Edith Wharton book. What my hubby would definitely call a chick flick and would definitely not want to see. I sprinkled in some much needed little chores that have been nagging me for some time and it feels so good to have them finally done. I ate only when I felt like it, went to bed later than usual (Oooo, I am such a renegade!...LOL) and woke early with the whole day ahead of me. As I write, the soundtrack from "When Harry met Sally" is blasting away and it is urging me to come and vacuum, before I settle down on the couch, Garlic bagel in hand to watch some great football. Oh, it is going to be such a lovely day!Always, Kit
