I'm afraid not. I'm better, but not good enough to travel, and there's more treatment coming up,so we had to cancel. However, we bought trip insurance, so we will reschedule when I'm well enough to enjoy it

oh, I'm so very sorry GG. I know how you were both looking forward to that trip. Getting you well is the most important thing, but I still feel so badly for you.

Duraflame 950 Cranberry Electric Fireplace Stove with Remote Control - DFS-950-7
We've had 2 of those before.Not that brand though.
Replacing the parts just became too much of a hassle time/money.
Were holding out for a real fireplace.

We are finally moving dh into my new house. We have been living at both houses. Here is what we moved today.

CM, do you mean a real real fireplace, one where you burn wood?

I have a fake gas fireplace put in and we love it. I chose not to have a blower installed and do not regret it. It throws off a lot of heat, but the house is small and the living room even smaller

Gee beth, when we moved from OH to AZ all we had to relocate was a cat.

I'm sitting here in silence, TV turned off. After an evening news full of "SnowSnowSnow!" "balls.balls.balls." followed by "windandSnow!" I've had it. My Lord, they have to hype the weather up here days in advance, as if talking about it will make it go away. If you haven't learned how to deal with winter up here by now, you may as well move to FL.

Glad you're home. It's a shame you have to postpone your cruise, but I suppose it's better safe than sorry. I'm sure your fur babies will make you feel even better quicker. BTW, couldn't see the greenhouse - the link wouldn't work for me. I'm sure it's cute.

I desperately hope that the horse isn't travelling in the trailer!

PLEASE, PLEASE, NEVER DO THIS AGAIN! The saving of money on the hire of a proper horse box is not worth a dead or severely injured horse.

And, please, DC-ers, don't ever imagine that this is an acceptable method of transporting an equine or any other animal.

It's cheaper for me to do it every two weeks because I still only have 1 load of each category, whites, colors, jeans. Towels and sheets get done weekly. I know having the uniforms adds a big load to it.

Relax, this is/was a perfectly safe way to transport an animal. DH and his family have worked, trained, had horses for at least 400 years. Horses are a way of life for him and his ancestors.

The horse arrived safely to his new home.

Just finished cataloging and organizing our music CDs. They're usually in their space in alpha order but we've added quite a few new ones over the last year and things got a bit jumbled. Now everyone's in order and I have a printout of what we have. It'll be easier to select something we want to hear. As a matter of fact I think I have me a hankerin' for some Vikki Carr.
