I did it!

You may have noticed that I finished the A-Z Challenge! Hip, hip hooray! I wrote and scheduled the final posts before I left town. We had a great trip that I'll fill you in on soon. Also, I'll read your comments here and respond shortly as well as try to catch up on your blogs, but I'm not sure I will have time to comment on all of your past posts.

In the meantime, it's back to work and all of the other necessities of life including a trip to the hardware store last night to get a piece for the garage door.  That was important so we could open it this morning to get the cars out to go to work today. Welcome home. :(

  1. Argh, how frustrating for you! Hope your garage door is fixed. It's amazing how those little things in life add up to big inconveniences.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed your A-Z challenge and commend you for interesting, thought-provoking content. I'll miss your daily posts but I bet you'll be glad to have a little down time from posting so frequently.

    1. The door is fixed enough that we can open and close it. However, some other parts are ready to break, also. I feel very lucky to have a husband that can fix these things. A new garage door is not in the budget right now.

      I am glad that you enjoyed the A-Z challenge. When forced, I wrote about things that I wouldn't normally consider during regular times. And some of them turn out to be interesting to me and others. I have to remember this when I think I don't have anything to say.

    2. A new garage door (and motor) was one of the first things we had to buy when we moved into our home. We've lived here long enough that we've had to replace the motor. And a year or two ago, the garage door spring broke which meant I coudn't even open it manually, so we had to have an emergency call made (maybe that's the part your brilliant hubby knows how to fix?). Seems like we have "have to" things occur all.the.time on our house. Someday I'd like to re-carpet the hallway and bedrooms .... it took me over 10 years for a new kitchen ... I suppose the bonus is, by the time we get around to it, the kids will be too old (or out of the house) to give it much wear and tear.

    3. We put in a new garage door at our old house. My husband had done work on it, but eventually, the easy fixes were over and we had to get a new one. We'll see how long we can string this one along. One of the hard things about moving is we just about had all of the major things done/redone in our old house and then we moved. The move has been good and was the right thing to do, but it's discouraging because of all of the things that need to be done again.

  3. I also liked all your posts! I liked the way you tweaked the alphabet too.
    Welcome home and back to the real world where stuff breaks at the most inopportune times.

    1. Yeah, the real world is not as fun as vacation sometimes.

    1. Thanks, Bless. Now if I could just find the motivation the rest of the year to post regularly like you do.
