Memorial Weekend Wrap-up

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Hi ho, Hi ho, it's back to work I go. Its always so tough to be back in the office after having an extra day off. I tried to get in some relaxation time, as well as get some stuff done on the house with my time off. With us trying to sell our house, I've been a ball of nerves ever since that for sale sign went up, so I've been trying to do as many things on my to do list to get it sold as quick as possible. (Cross your fingers that it goes quickly before I have a nervous breakdown!)

The morning started off helping my parents get rid of some stuff at their house and a nice 3 mile run. We spent the afternoon wine tasting with my parents and enjoying some of the different specials some of the wineries were offering for the holiday weekend. Then it was date night with Dan and enjoying some time just the two of us.

We got up early, cleaned up the house and headed to the beach! It was the perfect escape from worrying about the house. We of course took cooper with us and enjoyed walks on the beach, a little outlet mall shopping, and of course a nap at the beach house! I always love a day trip, and living just an hour from the coast makes it an easy escape! For some reason, lately I forget how close the coast is! Hopefully we will be make more trips their this summer.

(Yes my dog can jump over 6 feet in the air. Apparently he's part kangaroo) 

Dan had to work the holiday which meant Cooper and I got some hang out time. I did some shopping for the house, watched lots of Love It or List It, Too, and did some more packing. Anytime someone would like to come walk through our house or put an offer in . . . we're ready!!

After a few days off, I'm hoping this week goes by fast, and we have people who want to walk through our house, or better yet even put in an offer! We have a little getaway planned for next weekend with some friends, so hopefully the next four days fly by! I hope everyone else had a wonderful three day weekend. Last but absolutely not least, I want to thank all the service men and women and their families for their service to our country! You absolutely don't get thanked enough and I truly appreciate your bravery, sacrifice and selflessness!
