Where'd The Week Go?

Forgive me for being a bad blogger. I just haven't had much time to sit down & blog lately nor have I had much to talk about. Just been busy exercising, cleaning & scrapping a little as well. Saturday night, we decided to go to the drive-in to see Wall E & Get Smart. I haven't been to a drive-in in AGES (since I was a teenager), so I was really looking forward to it. And hey, I even grabbed my camera so I could take a picture of the sign to scrapbook :) The only thing that stinks is the closest drive-in to us is 40 miles away in Burton! But it was well worth the drive, especially seeing this beautiful sunset along the way:
Right when we got onto I-75, I told Jim to grab the camera & snap some pictures of the sunset. It was actually a little scary looking as we were also expecting some storms that night.
Here the sun is just peaking over the hill.
Give me a gorgeous sunset & I'm happy :)
This one is blurry, but I love how he got the flag in it!
Jim & I are still trying to decide if we're going to move or not in August. We found one house that we really like, but it's a little bit smaller than the house we're in now (about 400 square feet smaller). But it's newer, has a finished basement with a pool table & I just love the landscaping. We're also going to look at another house tomorrow.....only drawback on this one is that it's so far away & it's also near Selfridge Air Force Base, which would mean having to listen to planes all the time.....something we used to deal with when we lived in Virginia, but I'm not sure I want to deal with it again. But on the plus side, it's $300 cheaper a month than the other one. All I know is that we have to make a decision soon (within the next 2 weeks) about what we're going to do as we'll have to give a 30-day notice if we do decide to move. Why are decisions like this so hard???

That's all for now.....off to get some sleep.

Beautiful photos! And how fun to go to a drive-in! I went once in college, but not since. Sadly, the one closest to us closed a few years ago due to a fire.

Best of luck choosing what to do about moving or not. Both of those houses sound very nice. And, while I haven't lived near an AFB, I do live near our airport and am surprised how little I hear the planes anymore. The trains actually grab my attention more.

There is still a drive-in less than 2 hours drive from us. We've gone a few times. Makes me want to go again now lol. The sunset photos are beautiful! Thanks for sharing them :)

Hope you find your answer on which house to choose! And going to the drive-in must have been so fun! We used to have one here when I was a kid...I remember seeing Superman but falling asleep during the opening cartoon! Funny the things you remember from childhood...

What beautiful photos, Benita! Wow! Decisions about moving are always tough ones...

How was Wall-E? I'm planning on taking the kids to see it next week while Nattie has a friend visiting from CA.

My first real job after babysitting was working at the local drive in! I worked in the consession stand and loved it! The only bad thing was that I had to get up early Sunday morning because we had a huge flea market there. That drive-in is no longer there :( However where we live now, there is one about 15 minutes from us. Thanks for reminding me of it. I'm going now to check out what's playing this weekend!
