There are several reasons for this proposed location-
1. it's about equal driving for everyone;
2. we can visit the amusement park at Kennywood;
3. the Pirates are in town over that weekend (yes Dad there has to be baseball);
4. we can do some other sightseeing;
5. it's a chance to get the whole family (and their significant others) together;
6. IT WILL BE FUN!!
I am posting this now to give everyone a chance to check their schedules and decide whether these dates are convenient. I am willing to make all the arrangements. I have already scouted out a Hampton Inn near Kennywood which is reasonably priced-the only drawback is there is no swimming pool. (Bob-it's the same one that we stayed at before.) By your responding posts let me know if a pool is required/neeeded/a necessity.
Have a great New Year and I'll look forward to hearing from everyone soon.

The Baltimore Sun reported that Smith "has taken every snap with the starting offense this week in preparation for Sunday. Smith said he brings intensity every week, but he understands this week of practice is different."
I thought I'd post this highlight reel to ensure you that the Ravens WILL beat the Seahawks this weekend. And since Smith is from Cleveland, and the Steelers are the long-time rival of the Browns, I bet he'll beat them next week too if he gets the start.

We'll see you all soon!

I would just like to announce that in the last 2 days I wrote 27 pages worth of papers. And, as soon as I edit them, my class obligations will be done for the semester. Was there a point to writing these papers? Probably not, but they are done. Now I can focus on more important things like my therapy clients. :)
From here on out, I only have 4 more classes to take. Ever.
It feels really good to say that.

There's something so peaceful about watching the flakes come down (at least for me). I was driving home from Things Remembered, doing about 20 mph, & I just sat in traffic watching it snow. It's so beautiful outside, all I want to do is just stare out the window.
So I'm going to change into my comfort clothes, put on some warm socks, put on some music, read a book & open the blinds & enjoy this day!
The only thing that would make it perfect would be if I had a fireplace.....
Hope everyone is safe! :-)

Are you ladies getting pumped for this winter's match-up? Everyone leafing through their American Heritage dictionaries, checking the words you can spell with Q but not U, studying those anagrams and blocking triple-word scores? Get your pencils sharpened, and for heaven's sakes hide those scissors!

Yesterday, before the storm hit, it wasn't as cold and Liz kept her hood down most of the day. Today is a little different though. Behind Liz is the Spring Point Ledge Light House.
And this is me facing into the wind down at the harbor. Consider this photo "candid." That's the Bug Light Lighthouse behind me. Mom, I promise I have a stocking cap, but I left it back at the Inn. Oops.
We fly home tomorrow morning.

Unfortunately it's not real, but since we'll be out of
town for a while we figured it would be best to get an
artificial tree. As you can see, we've decorated it with
some ornaments from family members. Mom and
Dad brought back the blue glass one from their
Bermuda cruise and the cross-stitch is one of several
made by Aunt Donna. We're thinking of everyone!
