I wanna go back!

I think I must be missing the mountains. I know hubby is. He has suggested moving to the mountains at least a dozen times in the 1 1/2 weeks we've been back. Hubby's allergies go away when we go to the mountains. Texas, in all its glory, can be very, very dry with all sorts of irritants for the tender-nosed this time of the year. My reply is always the same:

"But sweetums we will have to take both moms with us".

"Arrrgh!" says hubby remembering their ages and that they are accustomed to us being in shouting range.

(That's not the word he actually used but in the interest of offending any of you ex-military folks, I substituted a more appropriate word).

On the other hand, long distance.......hum. Maybe he's onto something. I'm picking up the phone calling a realtor and starting to pack.

Tally-ho. Auf Wiedersehen. Sayonara. Hasta La Vista, Baby (in best Arnold voice).

That felt good but now it's back to reality.

What's with prospective employers that call you back every 6 weeks when you've completely written them off and re-invented yourself again (or at least tried)? Every time they call, something has changed at their company. This is sounding maybe I should run real fast in the opposite direction. But maybe an offer on the table would spark my interests.

As part of my 12-step program to blog less (is this realistic?) and get a few things done, I've started to look at all the pictures hubby took on our vacation (with the intent of making a digital scrapbook), and you, my lucky readers (notice the plural, I'm hopeful), are the first to see a few of my favorites:

Remember the waterfall that had the windshield wiper effect? I added a couple of pictures from our hike to my Purple Mountains post.

Hubby got this picture from the top of Deer Mountain (we really did make it to the top). These are some of the tall peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park:

And to finish off this post, here's how Colorado welcomes the bright colors of Autumn. The aspens were quivering:

And the sun goes down and the evening turns crisp. We went for a beer!

Those pictures were gorgeous! I'd re-think the moving there since it's worth bringing both moms! :op

You can't move up there, then I wouldn't have someone to run over on the highway.

Of all the places I've been, I've never been to Colorado. It's on my bucket list

@bee - Thanks....packed 6 boxes already ;-)

@dude - Ha! I'm wearing a disguise (that might be me in your last caption picture) so you won't find me on the highway ;-)
