Throwback Thursday ~ Take 2

Hey guys!

How’s it going? I mentioned that Pat and I have been helping my mom clean out her house in order to put it on the market soon. Last weekend we spent most of Saturday there and we got so much done. Although I didn’t go to the gym at all last weekend, I most certainly got a workout in – walking up and down flights of stairs all day long is no joke! I spent lots of time looking through old pictures again and thought I would share more of them with you lovely folks. 🙂

Throwback Thursday

Hey guys!

Last weekend I went over my mom’s house to help her clean out some of the stuff that has accumulated over the last 30 years of living there. While I was there, I spent a lot of time looking through old pictures, many of which I had not seen in over 20 years or so. I thought it would fun to share some of them with you. 🙂

Snow Day

Hey guys!

So we got LOTS more snow (about 9 inches) here in NJ, and I actually had the day off of work.


While I was happy to have the day off, I still did lots of work.

Right after Pat left for work, I decided to give Bosco a bath. Even though it was snowing, I like to give him a bath once a week and he was due for one.


all nice and clean!

I shoveled for about 1 1/2 hrs. this AM and then another 1/2 hr. a little while ago. That snow is no joke! It was so heavy – I am exhausted!!! Not only do we have to shovel the front steps, walkway, driveway, etc., but King Bosco needs a big section of grass done as well or he won’t go to the bathroom. I honestly would have rather been at work today!

I will let you know if the King approved of the job I did. As you can see, Bosco was very busy as well while I was outside. 🙂


I am now about to sit my booty on the couch and catch up on more of Season 3 of The Killing with Bosco. I think a hot chocolate may be necessary as well!
