Sheila, I keep asking my husband if it's normal for time to fly this fast. He said it's because we forget more lately. I told him speak for yourself. LOL

Hello and good afternoon, Dale! Yes, we thought we might do something this weekend, but decided not to since we need some downtime at home. We will do something for the coming weekend. :)
