What keeps distracting me????

My husband and I have been at the house in Florida for over two weeks. I had a list of things a mile long that I wanted to do. I keep being distracted by things and I can't figure out why I am not getting much done.

I did go thrift shopping and found a great many bargains. I had fun with my mom, we must have gone to a dozen shops that day. 

I took my mom and dad to the Daytona 500 and it was a great day.

This is my dad and my sweet husband.  I wanted to take my dad and my honey made it happen. It was a great day and we had a great time, I will never forget it. 

Then there was the shuttle launch that is something you don't see every day. It was only 57 seconds long but I won't forget this one either.

We then went to Jetty park which is just North of Cocoa Beach and thought it would be fun to have a picnic. We backed the van up to the inlet and enjoyed watching the dolphins. It was really relaxing to have a tailgate picnic. We ate our subs, while watching the cruise ships go by. I cannot believe how big these are. I have never been on one, but they were something to see going past. 

Today I got up super early 5:45 to watch my daughter (in the turquoise shirt) run a 5 K with her friends. They are all beautiful young women. They became friends through TWLOHA  an organization that they all believe in. Holly has become a different person through her own determination and the help of friends like these. We are so proud of her and what she has accomplished.

My husband just retired like 3 weeks ago, it can't continue at this pace can it? You see what I mean about not having time to do much. Every time I turn around we are off to some exciting adventure.

I did spend the day yesterday with Zach around the house. We got a lot done, but also fooled around a lot. We must have spent a half an hour just tossing toys off the deck, watching my new puppy Diesel fly through the air so we could capture a picture of him. He is so cute.

I promise that I will get back on track with my projects. I think if I don't I will have to re-do the blog to be about the exciting times in retirement that we are having so far. I am so tired every night.
