2014 Resolution

I resolve to publish on my blogs more least once a month and (hopefully) more.

That said, it's been a busy 3-1/2 years. Mother passed in December 2011. Mother's health was the primary reason we closed the shop and kept the online store. Mother was barely gone 6 months when Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer, already stage 4. Dad passed in February 2013.

In an effort to take me "away from all this," Frank booked us on a trans-Atlantic cruise from Ft. Lauderdale to Rome on Celebrity in April. Because round trip airfare is less expensive than one way, we purchased round trip tickets for our return from Rome.

Now I don't know about you but, after we came home, that Ft. Lauderdale-to-Rome unused flight was just eating away at us. So, we booked a second trans-Atlantic cruise for December and flew to Rome on the day before Thanksgiving to spend a few days before getting on the ship December 1st. Yes, I had pizza, chianti, and gelato for Thanksgiving dinner.

And now we're knee deep in inventory. I wonder if I should make spaghetti for dinner....
