I’ve been spending a lot of time recently thinking about our vacations and how we love to sight see and take in the points of interest wherever we go. Then I thought, I live near Detroit, one of the most interesting places that I’ve heard of. So I did some research. So far I have found 70 places in and around the city of Detroit that I want to visit. I’m sure I’ll find more as I do more research. I have a lifetime to do it so why not. Some of the places I’ve been to before, but without photo’s so gotta do it again 🙂 . I’ve been chronicling our journey to the sights of Detroit on my “Things to do in 2014” page. We have spent time the past two weeks visiting the start of the list. It’s fun exploring your own city. Just researching everything was so interesting. So, if you want, check out my page, leave a comment to let me know you were there.

Spent last Saturday at an indoor water-park in Dundee, MI celebrating my grandsons 6th birthday. I get such a kick out of watching the two kids together. They will just spontaneously hug, for no reason. None of my sibs and I were that close. You only touched each other if you had to.
Needless to say, I spent half of Sun, all Mon. and most of Tues. in a viral induced coma, only interrupted by the repeated and prolonged runs to the bathroom combined with the grasping of the trash can like a lifesaver. I feel like I have Rubber made stamped on my forehead. I just can’t be around large groups of people anymore. Every time I do I get sick. Even grocery shopping I catch the flu.
After taking the usual three days to recover. You know the days you mope around trying to connect head, stomach and legs all together again. It was during that time frame when the neuropathy kicked into high gear. I can’t sleep at night because of it and I’m useless during the day cause I can’t sleep at night. It’s a catch 22 made in hell. I’m going to up-dose on my Vicodin tonight to see if it helps at all. I’m running on false energy today and tomorrow is Easter Sunday and we will be spending it with Tom, Carla and the girls. The baby girls will be there too so I know I’m gonna be down again next week. But to get to spend time with babies is so worth it.
And now for the high of the year, for me at least. I did something today that I never in a million years thought I would ever do. I spent more money on two concert tickets then I used to make in a two-week pay period. But what tickets. I got to score, thanks to my loving and very understanding of my love of rock husband, tickets to P!NK. And not just any tickets, main floor section C, row 6 on the inside isle tickets. Platinum club seats. I can’t wait till November. Joe knew how bummed I was that I missed the tickets for her show in April, when I asked he didn’t bat an eye. I get to see her P!NKness herself and that is so worth it. So I’ll give up some crap I wanted done in the backyard this year, so what, I’m going to see P!NK. Um, did I tell you I scored prime tickets to P!NK, the rock goddess and legend?
OK, I’m off for a hot soak and bed. It’s been a day it has been. Good night to all, safe dreams.
Months that is… but I’ll take every one of those months and cherish them like the shining coins that they are.
And that’s all I have to say for today.
