100 WW: Week 83~ Travel

Image by Bikurgurl

Which road I should take? This would be the perfect trip for when my husband and myself retired in a few years. It has been always our dream to make a few trips after retirement, especially traveling back to Germany. We spent four years in Germany when he was stationed in the ARMY base. It always brings lovely memories. My husband loves to use his GPS however, with a sign like in this image the GPS is no need he will get lost anyway. Certainly, it would be an exciting trip with plenty of places to visit. Let’s be ready!

During the memorial weekend, we went to Wyoming to reunited our granddaughters with their mommy. We met half way from Phoenix, AZ. My daughter and the girls were happy to be together. Then, coming back home we visit The Devil’s Tower and it was amazing. I loved it very much and the experience was fantastic.

One-Liner Wednesday is hosted by Linda G. Hill.

 

 

 

 

My next trip

I enjoy traveling and that’s why I’ve a few trips on my bucket list.  It gets difficult to leave for days, because I take care of my dad. When I’ve the chance to travel then my sister would stay in my home with him.

My next trip would be in the middle of July, I’ll be going to Arizona. My daughter had been living there since February and she bought a house. The school would begin at the end of July and so my husband and I are taking our two granddaughters to live with their mommy.

Another reason I want my husband to come with us is to check if we can live there after we retire in a few years. We are trying to decide between Arizona and Colorado. Plus my husband loves cowboy’s movies and so a trip to Tombstone and the Grand Canyon would be the perfect combination.

Packing…

I’m packing my suitcase, tomorrow Friday I’m going to visit my daughter who just moves a few months ago. I’m taking my granddaughters and they’re excited to see mommy. We’re ready for warm weather and excited to see the beautiful Arizona.

 When my daughter decides to finish her education in Arizona I wasn’t sure if she’s been making the right decision. She has to make a few sacrifices, and one of them was leaving her two girls with us. She wants them to finish their school; meanwhile she looks for a home.

I realized how strong my daughter can be and I’m so proud of her. After writing this prompt I’m almost done packing and ready to see my daughter.

Enjoy your weekend, because this one here will be enjoying herself.

Thanks, Hindsight

I’d make a list of goals I would love to accomplish this year; however been only February and is too soon to tell.

One goal of my list is to keep myself healthy; I still don’t get the flu where some of my coworkers already have it. I’m eating healthy, taking my MEDs for my depression, and my diabetes. As a result, I’m sleeping better and that’s a plus.

Another goal is to travel more often, it will happen soon.  I’ve plane tickets to visit my daughter in Arizona during Easter vacation. My next trip is planned for June to visit my family in Puerto Rico.

I’ve challenge myself to read more and I’m excited about being four books ahead.

One of my goals I’m not doing so well is blogging every day like I want to. I work full time, take care of my dad, baby sitting my grandkids after school and by the time I sit down I’m tired and ready to go to bed. I’m glad am still taking my online class.  I work on this during the weekends and it gives me the chance to keep writing.

I’m doing well so far with my goals; however to count my goals that I’ve accomplished I’ve to wait until December.

Today here in the USA we are celebrating Valentine’s Day. To everyone who celebrated this day Happy Valentine’s Day. I’m getting dinner ready; the wine is in the fridge at least my Moscatto. My hubby’s wine he likes it at room temperature. Meanwhile, we are resting and watching “The Walking Dead” marathon and counting the hours for tonight’s new episode.

Have a wonderful day!

Kick It!

I use to have a wish list when I was young always adding more wishes or dreams. Some of them I did accomplish as part of growing up. I’m talking about college, marriage, a family, and a home. However now days I keep my bucket list, wish list, or my goals in a notebook that I keep on my night desk. What I have written on my list is not a difficult task to accomplish. Let me show some of them:

Eat healthy and lose weight (I’m following a 1,200 calories diet. Doctor’s order)

Exercise daily (right now I’m doing two times a week)

Vacation to Hawaii, Vegas, and Rome (three places I would like to visit and add to the other places I already visit)

A cruise as my second honeymoon (maybe Mexico or The Bahamas)

Learn to swim (I want to this for a long time)

Write (that’s why I have this blog)

Retired and move south (a few more years and maybe Arizona or Colorado would be a wonderful place to live.)

I can accomplish my goals depending on how determine I decide to be and add a few more wishes when the list started to get shorter.

If you Leave

I’ve moved several times, leaving behind family and friends. My husband and I enjoy traveling to different and beautiful places, however the hard part was saying goodbye to friends. My kids didn’t like leaving their school and starting all over again. Our last stop was North Dakota twenty years ago and it has been a blessed. We got jobs we both loves and my children ended with good friends, a good education, and jobs they enjoy it.

What it’s next for us? We are planning to work for a few more years and then “retire land”. Our plan is to make one last moved. We are thinking going to Colorado or Arizona, buy a small house and enjoy retirement.

North Dakota is a wonderful place to live, raise a family, with lots of job opportunities (the oil is blooming up here). However we can’t handle the cold anymore. Every year the winter shows in early and it stays too long. Brrrr!

Yes, I’m ready to move for the last time. The kids are excited about our plans.

Life is a series of beginnings and endings. We leave one job to start another; we quit cities, countries, or continents for a fresh start; we leave lovers and begin new relationships. What was the last thing you contemplated leaving? What were the pros and cons? Have you made up your mind? What will you choose?

No, Thanks!

I have been in a few places. I have a dream wish to travel when I retired in a few years. One of the places I will love to go will be Rome, Egypt, Greece, and Israel. A few cruises in The Caribbean will be nice too.

Now, there are a few places I’m not interested in visiting. This one is obvious Antarctica is too cold and when you are freezing nothing looks interesting. Other place I will not like to go will be a country that doesn’t respect human rights.  A country where they rape, abuse the women and the children. Shame on them, I will not expend a penny in a country like that so No,Thank You!

If you can dream…

Who doesn’t have a wish list, birthday wish, or Christmas wish? I remember writing in my notebook a list I wanted to accomplish for when I grew older.

Since I was a teen I’ve a wish or dream list. I’ve been adding or crossing off from my list when I accomplish one. At the time, I want the same dreams as the other teenagers like to get married, have a family, a house, a career, a dream job, money, and vacations. I’ve accomplished some of them.

I want to share the ones I’ve accomplished so far:
1. I went to college.
2. I’m married to a wonderful man.
3. I have a wonderful family (3 children and 4 grandkids).
4. I own my house.
5. I have a great job I enjoy.
6. I’ve taking writing classes thanks to my library who offers free online classes.
7. I’ve done some traveling during my husband Army years. I’ve been or lived in Texas, Germany, Austria, France, and North Dakota where I’m being living for the past twenty years. I also did a cruise to Jamaica.
8. I’ve been writing and I love it.

I’ve been in places only I was able to dream when I was a kid. However, I’m not done traveling. I’ll like to visit Hawaii, Alaska, Jerusalem, Egypt, Australia, Spain, Mexico, Italy, England, and Ireland.

This is my new bucket list:
1. Renew my vows
2. A second honeymoon to Las Vegas
3. Retire and move to Arizona
4. A new home
5. A new car for my husband
6. Money for my family and all my desires.
7. Publish my book
8. Take dance classes
9. Been healthy as losing weight, control my sugar (I’m type 2 diabetic), and control my depression
10. Join a mystery book club

I’ve been blessed all these years. I’ve encouraged my kids and my grandkids to write down a wish, dream or bucket list depends how you want to call it. I want them to dream big and to be grateful for what they have and will have in the future.

Do you have a bucket list? Do you have accomplished your dreams?
Keep Dreaming!

~ See you soon~
