Saturday in St. Cloud

We went to St. Cloud to visit Wade and Christina. Was hoping to see Scott too, but he was on his way to Ocala to see his grandparents. It was a good day as far as visiting went, but I was sick. Like a fool, I postponed eating breakfast and taking my meds until we got to St. Cloud (thought we might all go out to eat). Well we met Wade at his friend Tony's house and ended up staying a couple of hours. Now I was really tempting fate. My sugar dropped and I got shaky and light headed. We finally got something to eat at a great little restaurant on New York Ave. called "The Other Place". But once I have low sugar, I just don't feel good for the rest of the day. We actually got home about 5:30pm and I went straight to bed and didn't get up until 7:30 am. Trust me, I will never do that again.

We did have a pretty go visit though. We went to downtown St. Cloud, which has some fantatstic antique stores and specialty shops. I'm not a big fan of Dollhouses, but there is a shop there that had everything you could possibly want to build a dollhouse and decorate it. I don't remember the name of it, but it's the only one and it's on New York Ave. New York Ave has most of the shops but all of downtown St. Cloud is wonderful (Winter Haven, you should take note). From there we headed over to the flea market and walked around for an hour or so. Not one of the better days there. Alot of empty booths, but hey it's summer in Florida, wait til the snowbirds get back. But it gave us lots of visiting time with Wade and Christina. We had planned to stay for dinner but we'll take a rain check on that. We always enjoy spending time with Christina and Wade (and Scott, when he's around). My boss thinks it's highly unusual that my kids like to do things with us. He says most kids don't. I always enjoyed doing things with my parents and in-laws. Are we different? I hope not. But even if we are...I'm glad my family is close.
