I've been such a bad blogger. I am sorry. We are keeping up with all of you though, I am paying attention to goats with their shirts on and pretty red toenails. Obviously part of the reason I have not posted is because we have not been to our beloved shmoopywood. We do hope to get up there next weekend possibly and have a good look around to make sure things are okay. Perhaps Friday the 13th because we have taken that day off, but maybe that isnt such a good idea all things considered. The truth is, I just haven't felt funny lately. Dave and I have taken the plunge and started Chantix. This is a smoking cessation drug that really is a miracle worker however, nothing in life is free and there are several side effects both physical and mental. Fortunately, we have both been off the smoke for 3 weeks tomorrow but unfortunately, there have been no shortage of symptoms in our house. I am plagued with most of the psychological symptoms: sad, depressed, forked dreams... and Dave suffers from the physical: nausea, sleeplessness... Add to that 2 great danes and 2 teenagers and you can imagine our household at any given time ;) I promise though, if we get up there to check things out next weekend, i will take lots of pictures and give you a good update. I will also be posting this year's wish list and we can see how much Dave and I can get done!

Incidentally - this is going to put a damper on my camp-life beer drinking...
sigh ;)

I can imagine life around your place is kinda crazy. Hang in there it will get better. Spring will be here soon and can't wait to read about all your plans for this year.

Hi ! I'm Cindy said...

I just saw this post, I must have missed it when I first found your blog.......

Are you still a non smoker? If so, would you recommend Chantix......i read of your guys' side affects, but I've tried many different methods to quit, but to no avail......

If you are still non smoking, KUDOS!
