rough   Leave a comment

we got a lot of moving done yesterday
Today is a day of rest and I’m putting some things in boxes and doing very little in the way of over exerting myself.

Yesterday after we got done moving a lot of things, the men, Adam, Brian, Matt and Rick began drinking
this lasted till almost two am!
I feel rough today and I wasn’t drinking a bit.
Just the staying up late and lack of sleep

Matt and Brian and Rick seem fine today but Adam is sick.
Not sure if it is a hangover sick OR just drinking with his Crones disease.
but hopefully he will be up for coming over for a grill out later
Supposed to be almost 70

making progress   Leave a comment

I have to say lm feeling really good about the progress l am making with getting ready to move

I’m almost done with the upstairs and attic

Maybe 2-3  more hours up there

I am amazed at how much stuff l have accumulated over the years

I will be thrilled when the move is done so l can get our new place in order

I know all in good time



A month from now l will be here again

Can’t wait

I pulled a muscle in my back when I was lifting heavy boxes from upstairs to downstairs in our house.
Talk about hurt.
Now it is radiating to my chest and all I can say is
This getting old is for the birds!

The weather is finally supposed to turn warmer and hopefully stay that way

I’m making good progress on getting things packed up to move

AND  l bought  myself a new Nook HD that is wonderful!

Only $175  which is over $100 cheaper than a mini l pad or kindle

I also get to see all four grandchildren later which will be great too

if money were no object what would you do?   Leave a comment

If money were no problem

In other words if you had all the money in the world what would you do?

Who would you become?


I would be a world traveler

I would give millions to cancer research

I would give millions to do something about the homeless, the unwanted

I would open hundreds of safe havens around the country for those who had no place to go

I would buy my own airplane and learn to fly it

I would have homes in the mountains, and beachfront property somewhere


So I ask you, what would you do if money was no object?

too much junk   Leave a comment

as I am going through my house, getting rid of this and that I am quite amazed that I have so much junk.
Good Lord it seems never-ending.

I have pictures from when my kids were little that I just can not throw away.

dozens of pictures of the same picture that I just can not get rid of.

I know, I am weird in that regard.

I have so much to do and I have to tell you I really have no desire to do it.

but I will force myself to do it because in  five weeks we will be moving AND I have a house to clean well before we move.

seems almost like a long time from now but….

the worse part is I have no place to put anything.
I wanted to rent a pod to store stuff but my husband vetoed it.

darn it.

sure would have made my life simpler

oh well…….onward and upward right?

grandchildren time   Leave a comment

I went to have lunch with Keira today, my seven-year old grand-daughter

I actually bought her subway and she ate there at school while we sat and talked.

Then Aaron was here for a bit today too.
He has pink eye in both of his eyes and he is a bit grumpy.
But over all a happy boy.


Love my grandchildren so very much

teasing us with spring   Leave a comment

the other day it was sixty, and then Sunday night we got about half an inch of snow.

I want Spring!
As does everyone I know.
I miss green grass and trees and warm temperatures!

Mother Nature is teasing us with spring, but she is having the last laugh with these cold temperatures again.

Emily   Leave a comment

We had Emily’s birthday party on Saturday night

She is 25 now.
Pregnant and about ready to buy our house from us.
Aaron wants a baby brother of course.
I think Emily does too simply because she has all boy clothes and toys.

Either way I just hope it is a healthy baby.
Love my grandchildren more than my own life.
They truly are my gifts from God.
I am a blessed woman.


Em's family 2

today is my eldest child’s birthday (the second in from the right)

with her siblings Matt, Emily and Brian.
she is 35 today
Am I getting old or what?

She lives in Portland Oregon as of now but I think she will be moving back to the midwest by summer time.

She is one of the smartest most self-sufficient people I know
And I love her dearly

Happy Birthday Daughter!
