Thanks :)

Just a quick “thank you” for all the support we’ve been getting from friends & family, online & in person.

Paul and I feel very blessed that so many of you are willing to help with the yard sale, donating stuff, and words of encouragement!!

This is a very exciting, yet stressful, process and knowing […]

Turkey Day Countdown!

One of my brothers contacted me on FB saying there was nothing new here…Now, sisters and parents are one thing…but when my BROTHERS complain, it’s another ballgame. 😛

So far, life is still good. Our Easter Egger chickens are slowly producing their green eggs, and one of the “she” birds turned out to be a […]

Back From Vacay!

It’s amazing how quickly 2 weeks and a few days can go by! It seemed like every day was over before it began.

We stayed in Wyoming with my parents for a few days first. They have 2 llamas, 2 mini horses and 2 big horses and a bunch of sheep. And a few dogs […]

Entirely Too Busy.

A couple days ago I posted writing was getting dry.

Life, however, has been so busy.

Yesterday I had to take dh an hour away to a doctor…minor thing, but he was in the hospital (to get the procedure done) from 7:45 to noon. We left the house at 6:15 am. We grabbed lunch on […]

There Should be a Law Against This.

I have a firm belief that it should be banned. It’s unfair, sexist, and cruel. I’m very sensitive to this problem and it’s frustrating to see happen to myself and other women. Men don’t understand and, therefore, it’s really not a big deal to them. Which makes this even more awful!

Moms shouldn’t get sick! […]

We Mapped our Road Trip!

As I’ve mentioned before, we’re planning a road trip out to Wyoming and Utah this summer. The kids and I are really excited. Dh is stressing.

We’ve got 2 stops overnight on the way out there, around Indianapolis/Danville then in Omaha. I’m looking for a way to cut expenses. Same with on the way back.

Sad Stuff Yesterday.

This week I got news of a man in church that had passed away. He was only 62 but developed severe Alzheimer’s. He was a very generous, kind, happy-go-lucky man and at the end was nothing like his former self. I bawled at the funeral, not because I knew him well, but because it’s sad […]

We Have Plans!!

YAY!!!

We’re going to add on to our house…not much, just a master suite. But it’s much needed! We’ve been playing phone tag with 2 different architects and contractor all summer. And neither architect worked out (long story). So we asked my brother to do it and he made a deal with Paul….drawings for web […]

Have You Seen This?? 9/11 Memorial

This is amazing! My mom sent me this in an email as well and I absolutely had to share on the occasion.

This man, John Holmgren, used his own money to have his truck/trailer painted as a memorial to 9/11. He said, “”It seemed to me like people were forgetting 9/11.” He heard the […]

Doggin’ on Paul!

Ok, not really.

But have you ever been around someone who always talks bad about his/her spouse? It’s really awkward. And annoying. I always wonder, ok, why are you with this person if they’re so awful?? And why are you telling me??

We know someone, “Bob.” Bob dogs on his wife frequently. Paul recently heard […]
