You probably know that I have a long line of Scottish ancestors. When I had my DNA done, Scotland/Ireland/Welsh/England were the biggest piece of the pie. We have a nephew who lives south of Glasgow, and my husband and I have been there before. I love the country. It is beautiful, green grass, rock fences, old castles, and beautiful lakes. I had told my husband I wanted to go one more time before I got too old and lost my eyesight. He had no interest of returning, so I had given up talking about it.
That’s until my daughter mentioned it when my husband had knee surgery in December. She said she and her daughter wanted to go. Naturally I asked if I could tag along. Her answer was, “Yes!” When my husband could think better, I asked him if I could go, and he could also if he wanted to. He told me to go on. He would stay home and make garden. Yeah! I’m going to Scotland. My passport had to be renewed, but that was no problem, until the government shut down.
Monday I received my renewed passport. I’m ready to go, even if the rest of them do not get their passport in time. Ten days in Scotland, what fun we will have.
My other gift was something I’ve been drooling over for a while. A Fitbit. I’ve wanted one for about a year, and this year my husband told our daughter to get one for me. I have Fitbit Charge 3, and I love it. It tells me when I need to get up and walk, how well I slept last night (7 hrs, 14 minutes), I can count calories, keep up with the water I drink each day, and I don’t know what else. It does tell the time and how many steps I take in a day. Life is good.
Have a blessed day.
