There’s a hint of summer in the air…..

Ahhh…yes, it was another cold afternoon at the ballpark on Sunday and somehow the Tribe lost. We had a terrific time anyhow but a victory would’ve been soooo much better after record setting pitching! Ugh!

My parents took off today for Guam. They arrive tomorrow. Long flights but a joyous reunion with my brother and family will soon be taking place! I’m kind of envious!
10 days until I arrive in the Outer Banks! Me n all my boys! Lots to pack, dogs to groom, and more! Tonight was a sweet reminder that warm weather is coming!! Sitting outside watching my dogs play I the sunshine renewed my faith that summer is actually coming…not soon enough, but it is!

Not So Fashionably Late

Dear Spring,

You were supposed to show your face today. Looking at the forecast, you’re running late…..REALLY late! Hurry up because walking my boys in the cold is getting old & they have a severe case of cabin fever!

Looking forward to seeing you SOON,
Mindy

Will it ever end?

I know sooooo many people across the country have been talking about the weather….it’s been absolutely unbelievably unbearably cold and miserable this winter! Once again it’s snowing, cold and nasty. My golden boys have cabin fever. We got a short glimpse of spring 24 hours ago and enjoyed 60 degrees! Now it’s windy, snowing, icy and downright sucky outside! Where is the sunshine?! We got to walk for the last 5 days so nicely but alas winter has returned to NE Ohio! Just GO AWAY!!

But the IndiansIndians
Are dominating spring training so I KNOW that warm temps are coming….SOON!! I also know in less than 70 days I’ll be looking at the lovely beautiful beaches in Rodanthe in the Outer Banks! Yes, I’m already looking forward to it…bad as that is! Hang in there, it’s almost over! I think!

Yep, I’m kind of hibernating…….

ImageWow, I’m still here-just been hibernating for the winter.  All of us here in NE Ohio are pretty much done with this crazy winter!  I mean really, it gets cold, it snows, it gets cold some more, it snows some more….then you can throw in some thunder snow, lightning, ice storms, power outages, wind chills that make even a polar bear shiver, and it’s just been insane!  That stinkin’ groundhog needs to be found and strung up!  Well, maybe that’s a little harsh but it might make us feel better for a little while!

But now that it’s almost March, the days are getting longer, spring REALLY is just around the corner, summer plans are already being made (can you say VACATION!) so it’s getting better all the time.  Lots of things happening in our family the past few months and months to come.  My older brother and family will be moving back to the states (from GUAM!) in June!!!  It’s been 20 years since we lived on the same continent so, yes I’m EXCITED!!!!  They may end up in another state but at least I know they will be within traveling distance!  I am especially looking forward to seeing some Tribe baseball with him!  It’s been 6 long years since we were able to attend a game TOGETHER so that is definitely on the agenda!  Maybe, just maybe, we will actually get to spend some holidays together!!  What a dream come true that would be!

ImageA week in May in the Outer Banks is also planned for my husband and I and our 3 “boys”.  The perfect place to relax, kick back and soak up some sun.  After this winter, we are going to need all the sun we can get!

2013 in Rodanthe

2013 in Rodanthe

It’s time for NASCAR too!  Lots to see and watch and cheer for!  Go Jeff Gordon!

So everyone hang in there for just a little bit more and we will soon be basking in the air conditioning and humidity of summer!!  WootWoot!  See ya soon!
