Where We've Been, What We Saw

Where am I today?
Stratford, Ontario

Since my posting a week ago, just know that I am taking care of myself.

One of the first things I did was making an appointment with the family doctor. I have had a sore thumb for a while and it was determined that it is arthritis. I then went to my chiropractor/natural path for back adjustments and to ensure that I was taking the vitamins that I need. I only take what he suggests as sometimes supplements don't work together as they should. I always eat 3 times a day and sleep when I feel it is necessary. Usually in bed by 9 and up maybe around 6 or 7.

Last week I also had appointment with the funeral director and I was provided with a list of things that needed to be taken care of. What a wonderful list. This has made process of changing names on accounts etc much easier. The list has been accomplished and I don't think I forgot anything.

 In between me making phone calls and going to appointments, I started to go through the blog to record the various things we have seen during our travels. I thought this list would be beneficial to others, but I have realized that it is always a quick way for me to relive our memories of the places we saw and the people we met. Our object was to see as much of the United States as possible during the winter months. When we would visit a new area, we always looked around for things to see and do. It could be an attraction, museum, flea market or just go for a drive.  We didn't see everything in the area at once, as we knew we would go back again and we did. That is why we travelled, to see the sights and learn something new. Both of us did not do well with History in school but we learned a lot while travelling.

There a couple of things we still wanted to see but that opportunity was not going to happen. For all of you reading this, live your life to the fullest and follow your dreams. Life is too short not to.

The change in the blog profile I did, does seem to work. You can get my email address from there, but you can still send an email to George as well, since I look at it daily.

The list includes the date, city or close by city and the attraction.

  1. Boy that must have been some job to go through all your blogs and note the places. Good for you. I am so glad to see you doing well. George would be very proud of you and happy that you are moving forward.

  2. The Blog will be a source of comfort and enjoyment for you for many years to come. I look back in mine a lot to find photos of Norma and for the stories that make me remember our travels and adventures together. I am happy you are taking good care of yourself Suzie.

  3. I am very glad to hear that you are taking care of yourself, I am sure George would want that. Thank you for making a list of all the places you and George traveled to.

    It was nice to see that you visited our State of Texas... I wish I had known about your blog before I did would have loved to have had the honor to have met you both when you visited Houston.

    My best wishes in this new chapter of your life...stay strong. Thank you for continuing to keep us updated, it is very much appreciated. Sending a big cyber hug to you and all your family.

  4. Reviewing the blog history is today's version of looking at old photos. And it's a much better way of remembering the events. That's an awesome list of many of the places you visited and shared with your readers.
    Glad you are doing the best for yourself, and thanks for keeping your readers/friends updated.

  5. Wow. Lives well lived. I think of you often Suz. Glad you are taking care of yourself. You are such a treasured friend.

  6. Wow! What a list. I hope we can say the same soon and visit many of those places.

  7. Suzie it is so nice that you have the blog and can relive your travels with George. No one can ever take away your memories.

  8. Glad you are taking care Sue... thank you for continuing to update us.
    That is a really impressive list of places and attractions that you and George were able to visit and see!

  9. How helpful to have gotten that list from the funeral director, having taken care of business and paperwork will save you a lot of stressful problems.
    Early each evening I look for a post from you, what a pleasure seeing this one is, thanks ever so much !
    It's amazing how many places you went to, may those memories be a gift whenever you need them. Until next time, stay well and be blessed. - Mary

  10. Wow, what a list is right! You two did a lot of travelling!

  11. That is a very impressive travel list and you guys did well not letting too much dust settle on you.

  12. Important to take care of yourself for sure. I too found the booklets the funeral home have me very helpful after my house and passed.

  13. Glad you are taking care of yourself but nothing says that because George is not physically with you that you can't continue traveling. Whether you drive the RV you presently have or with another.
    Be Safe and Enjoy every day.

    It's about time.

  14. Good for you taking care of what needs to be done including taking care of you.
    Your George sure did quite a bit of traveling over the years. You have seen more of the USA than I have.
    So happy you are posting on the blog. Take Care Suzie

  15. Wow! You and George saw more of the U.S. than most Americans ever have. So glad you're getting things done and taking care of yourself. I agree, we must do those things we want now because there is no guarantee tomorrow ever comes. Glad you're back.

  16. You guys sure saw a lot and often you don't realize how much until you sit down and make a list like you did. I'm glad you are taking care of yourself and still posting :-)

  17. Now that is a long list and a well traveled life. How cool to be able to keep track. Happy you are back posting AND taking care.

  18. So nice to hear from you! Glad you are doing well and getting things done. That is a wonderful list of places seen and things done. Wonderful memories you two had! Looking forward to your next posting!

  19. This is a great post. First, it answers our concerns about how you are doing and it is great that you are doing well and looking after yourself.
    Second, this list of places you've been. I'm sure it was time consuming but what a great memory for you. There are places on your list we have not visited, some we will and others we can read about. Thank you!
    Always happy to see your new posts. :)
