It's good to be back! (yes, again!)


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!


It's been a LONG time since I've been here - probably not since I bought my home 16 months ago? Things have really changed.


So we have been in the house almost 18 months. It's a work in progress, but we have heat! (no we didn't have a working heating system when we moved in)


One son, moved out and got engaged, got a good job and is planning an returning to school. He wants to become and underwater welder.

My younger son is still driving me crazy - I have learned that I can't fix him, I can't make the good decisions for him, he's been in and out of court, it's up to him now. He is safe in God's hands.

My mom is 85 and suffers from Trigeminal Neuralgia - it's called the Suicide disease because the pain is so bad people contemplate killing themselves.

MOM IS COMING TO LIVE WITH ME!! We are preparing to sand and refinish floors and paint her room. LOTS AND LOTS of work is scheduled to start ASAP and when I get done my house will be almost exactly what I want it to be if it were compleated all except for the country kitchen I want.


oh, and Mom has Dementia - it's going to be interesting! But I will NOT put her away in a place no matter how good it could possibly be for someone else to take care of her. She is MY Mom and I am going to take care of her just the way she always takes care of me.


That's the news in a nutshell for now. I hope to be spending more time here in the future, I swear I'm going to write myself a note and stick it to the computer!


I have missed all of you and I can't wait to get back into the swing of things again
