Oh, my goodness! I never thought I would get up one morning and be “HOME SICK”! It’s awful. Here I am in beautiful “Never, Never Land” and I am home sick. I told the Hubby and you know what he did….LAUGHED! Of course he replied, “You had a fit to get here, and now you want to go home”! But of course I had to go into detail that I missed my ducks, my UK buddies and the lake. Once again, he gave me a hard time reminding me that all I had to do was look out the window and see the ocean and “big birds” that flew over every morning. But you know what I said, “IT’S NOT LIKE HOME”. Well, I will suffer through and try and try to enjoy the last moments here with my Buddies.
I will tell you I have been busy coaching my Big Blue basketball team. Especially when Vanderbilt just kept running up and down the floor making baskets like crazy. The Hubby was having a fit and I got so mad I decided to close my eyes so I would not see it. You know what happened next. Yep, I went to sleep. Can you believe that? Anyway, when I woke up they were a few points ahead. Of course I was screaming and yelling as loud as I could and the Hubby replied, “Oh, I see have come alive”. I thought you died there for a minute.
Well, the end of the game was coming all too quick and I noticed that I did not have my famous “magic blue hoodie” on and I jumped up and got it and put it on! Once again the “BIG BLUE” came alive and we won. Of course, the Hubby said, “it’s all your fault, you didn’t put that silly hoodie on at the beginning of the game and then of all things FELL ASLEEP. No wonder they got behind.
So this morning before I started this column, I called my nephew and told him I am so glad he gave me that MAGIC hoodie for Christmas because the Big Blue couldn’t win without it. Of course, he is like the Hubby, he said “WHAT”?
Today, I made a trip to the UPS station and sent three boxes back to a friend. These are all my treasures I either made or bought while I was here. I really wish I could box up all the wonderful friends that I have made and bring them with me.
I guess you know by now my favorite basketball team finished up the season winning over Texas A & M. I can’t believe it’s time for March Madness. Time really flies when you are having fun. Till next time, Love you all. Bye now!
