What a busy, busy, busy 2+ months! It has been a whirlwind for sure.
In late October, I flew to NC to help my parents out. Mom had knee replacement surgery in mid-October and my sisters Barbara and Cathy helped out the first two weeks. But, Mom needed some extra TLC so I spent three weeks pitching in. When I wasn’t driving them around or tending to their needs, I put Mom’s sewing machine to good use. I got a lot of projects completed.
From mid-November to early December, I was back in Cedar Key. I’m still working in the office three days a week. It is “crazy fun”. I was warned about the kinds of questions people would ask but was still quite surprised to hear some of them.
No ma’am we don’t have piranhas in the park.
Yes ma’am we have do mosquitos/snakes/alligators (insert word of your choice!). This is Florida.
No ma’am you won’t be swimming in our pool with 3000 of your closest friends.
Dan has worked on and completed quite a few projects around the lot.

As usual, it was great seeing my kids and I really enjoyed spending time with them. Ashleigh and I had a “museum day” in downtown Raleigh.

We drove to the coast to my parents house for the “Voyce Family Christmas” gathering. There’s never a dull moment and plenty of chaos and laughter!
