I spent many days away from home and out of town this year. I'm realizing that I'm kind of a nomad...

My mom had surgery for colon cancer in January and started a tour of different medical facilities, hospital beds and rehabs. My tour was a little easier, always starting north on I-69 and ending in Ann Arbor or Midland, MI. Seven months later and 30 lbs. lighter my mom was well enough to stay home. My last road trip to Michigan was 2 days ago for our annual Thanksgiving gathering. I'm so thankful my mom is healthy!
I love live music and I traveled all over this year to see it...Tennessee, Denver, Chicago, Bloomington. One of my favorites was Paul McCartney at Bonnaroo - such a humble and classy man. I've never been to a concert where the frontman talks and EVERYONE listens - all 80,000 of us, you could have heard a pin drop. I heard myself say out loud "He has a great butt" and then realized he's as old as my dad.

I'm a big Phish fan of late. This year I caught 4 shows. Now if you know about Phish fans - you know that 4 shows only is an embarrassment. But I'm doing my best. So much fun!
My son, Clay and I traveled to Ireland last spring. It was our first trip to Europe. It was so amazing. We drove all over and stayed in people's houses. Ireland is the home of the original roundabout - and they go clockwise. These little blue arrows were my best friend. I imagined them saying "This lane sweetie. It's ok, we are here to help."
