Run Away With Me...

That's what A has been whispering to me all week. This weekend we are running away to Duluth on Lake Superior. Actually we are meeting friends there and will be spending time visiting. It  is long overdue! There will be food, drinks, dancing and lots of laughter. A is a Duluth girl, born and raised and she gets a special light when she returns to her "home". Duluth is special to us too since we were there when I made my confession to A that I had feelings for her. That is actually the day we consider our anniversary. The weather is supposed to be warm and sunny and I'm hoping we will get a chance to get out and take some pictures. We are leaving early since we have a 3 hour drive and will get there before everone else. That gives us a little time to ourselves before joining up with the group.

A and I have been discussing the possibility of buying a small RV for several months now but had not planned on it right away. Last weekend we were out biking around town with my brother and sister-in-law. I pointed out an RV parked in front of a house and told my brother that A and I were looking at something about that size. When we rode closer we noticed a "For Sale" sign and rolled up to take a look. It's an older model but the mileage is low and the price is exceptional. Of course A was curious and made an appointment to check it out and she is now in negotiations to purchase it ( I lack negotiating ability). Nothing is for sure yet but if we buy it we may be running away more often since the dogs can go along.

Otherwise there is not too much going on here except work, work and more work. I finally submitted and joined Facebook (I'm sorry Queen of Ruckus). My sister-in-law convinced me to join so I can stay in touch with her and my nephews easier once they move. No matter what, I'm striving to keep it low-key. Any tips to avoid getting "sucked into" the world of FB?

And how exciting about the possibility of buying that RV. You know they rock, right?

Wow! That's awesome! A nice little trip and possibly a RV purchase!

To avoid getting sucked into FB, stay away from the games, ie. farmville, mafia wars... etc. That seems to be the one thing that sucks everyone in.

Wow it sounds like you are going to have a wonderful time. I am jealous maybe I should get an RV and travel to AZ mmmmmmmm.
I too have been sucked into FB for a while now. Just don't get involved with the crazy games and you will be ok.

Have fun in Duluth, I love that area! We all need to "run away" for a bit.
You know my FB hesitations and complaints, the only tip I have is to just stay off of it for a while if drama finds you!

A cute little funky RV...how awesome...we would love to purchase one of those.

I submitted to FB a few mths ago. It was alittle addicting at first, but I'm over it now. I post maybe once a day...but I don't let it consume me.

Enjoy!

oh, I love the little glimpse into the story of you and A.
I am SO excited about the RV. Sounds like fate. And your doggies will be thrilled. I'm rooting for this!!!

Sorry, no FB advice. Sometimes you get sucked in for a bit, but it gets boring pretty fast if you ask me.

oh and have a fantastic weekend!
