Columbus, GA...

Have you ever had a week (or four) that just seemed to be way harder than they should have been??? Well, the last month or so has been really rough around here…not with life or death type situations but with those kinds of things that just wear you down and make you think about life or death (generally that of other people!) so I was really pleased with our little weekend trip and how relaxing it was.
We started off the weekend on Friday night in Auburn, AL at a [high school] football game. Our team had to travel far and wide for this game. After the game we headed to Columbus, GA. Many years ago we lived in Columbus and it still holds a fond place in our hearts. It is a beautiful city where in many ways life is just slower and simpler. We did drive by our old house (a couple of obsessive times, actually) and I am just so disappointed in what bad shape it is in. We literally spent much blood, sweat and tears over reworking, redoing, redecorating that house and yard when we owned it. Why, oh why, if the folks who bought it didn’t want the up keep and challenges that come with an older home didn’t they just buy a track home in a neighborhood on the north side????
One real treat that we experienced while in Columbus was a visit and tour at the new “Eagle & Phenix” http://www.eagleandphenix.com/ (check out the photos of the lofts in the photos on the website).
These amazing lofts are being carved out of one of the historic mills overlooking the Chattahoochee River and Riverwalk http://www.columbusga.org/parks/park_sites/riverwalk.htm . They were just amazing! Oh…it would be heaven living there and enjoying the downtown life and Riverwalk all the while having such a gorgeous, unique home. Hmmmm, wonder how quickly this house would sell…..

So, what did you do this weekend?

  6. I'm still lickin' my wounds from that beatin' we took Saturday night, at the hands of those Alabama boys. It was just a good old fashioned tail whipping. But I still love my dawgs. Thats what my weekend consisted of.
