What vacation...remembering Uncle Jerry...

Spring break starts on Friday. It feels like our Florida vacation was so long ago already! Probably because we have been so busy and ill since we got back. Kids are finally done coughing.

We are shipping off the kids to the grandparents next week, which I guess will be like a mini vacation in a way. I'm hoping to hit the casino with my man or at least maybe dinner.


Sadly, my great uncle Jerry Daley passed away at the age of 87 last week. He was such a charasmatic, fun loving guy. He always had a twinkle in his eye and a joke to tell. I admired that even into his eighties he was lifting weights, swimming, hiking and living life to the fullest. He met my great aunt Betty when they were 15 and 16 and shared 66 wonderful years of marriage! He left a legacy of love, which I suppose in the end is the best thing you can leave. Rest in peace.
