Trying to get my blog back on track!

I don't know what happened a few months ago. . . but, my blog just went "poof". . . . gone was my pretty background. I have no idea what happened, but I just got it back and it will take some tweaking, but it WILL look good again soon! Until then, enjoy this adorable picture of my Hunter riding the exercise bike.

Technical Difficulties!

Arggh! What happened to my pretty blog? It took me so long to set it up the first time. . . now I have to figure it out all over again. Sigh.

Death of loved ones

I lost a friend last night. We weren't the type of friends that spoke every day on the phone. . . or every week, but when we were together, we enjoyed each other's company. And, even though she answered a question about me on FB that she didn't think I was cute, I forgive her! :-P

I have such a hard time with death. I don't know why. It should be a happy thing, knowing that they are going back to live with our Heavenly Father.

I lost a good friend 2 months ago as well. He lived a dangerous life, diving. For all the risks he took. . . it was an idiot of a woman who was running from the cops and t-boned his car. . . killed him instantly and seriously hurt his passenger. And, yet, this idiot woman, who tried to sell her baby, lives. How is that fair? I just don't understand.

Thrift Store Shopping!

Had a FABULOUS time thrift shopping today. Nothing too exciting, but always fun to treasure hunt. A few weeks ago I found a Longaberger umbrella basket for $12. . . THAT was exciting!!

I've been spending my spare moments searching the web, trying to find, expo, bazaars, etc. to sell my Scentsy. . . MAN, they are expensive! What happened to $35 fees?

Anyone have any ideas for Sponsors?

In Colorado. . . .

Here I sit in the lobby of a Marriott Resident's Inn. . . . This move has not gone as planned.

ACK!!! This just in! Jenna and Javi's flight from New Mexico to Nevada has been cancelled! I'm waiting for more information right now.

Ugh. . . . anyway! On our drive to this beautiful country, we lost a WHEEL off of our Uhaul as we where going down a busy, rainy, narrow highway. Ian heard a weird noise and then looked in his side-view mirror and said "there goes our tire". . . at that time we did not know that it was our entire wheel sans the lugnuts that went flying off the trailer, over two fences, into someone's backyard and parked itself under their tree. Due to the barbed wire, Ian was not about to retrieve it.

Skipping ahead. . . we are going to unload our trailer tomorrow in our "new home" and then hopefully have a truck full of our household goods delivered as early as Monday. Oh, wouldn't that be nice, something go as kinda planned!?

The ladies at the awesome library were wonderful enough to let us have temporary cards, allowing us to have 2 items each. . . once full-fledged members. . . wait for it. . . 99 items each!! Who needs that many books? It is such an awesome, technically advanced library, to check out books, you scan your card and place up to 5 books on the counter. . . it reads them and checks them out for you! So cool! And because it is such a small library, they only keep the newest books on hand! Couldn't ask for more in a library!!!

I'm missing my friends and just being able to run down the road for a quick meeting and letting our kids hang out. I definitely DON'T miss the heat.

Ok, kids' flight has been rescheduled and they will be getting in Las Vegas at 5:05 tonight. Not sure what happened, but I am sure I will hear all about it.

Life! Ack!!!!

I'm so excited to have my blog. . . now, if I could only remember to come to it once in a while to update it.

My WORD . . . soooo much has happened. Jenna and Javi are leaving Thursday morning with my wonderful MIL (Mother-in-law) Clyda to spend a couple of weeks with her in Taos, NM. . . . while the movers come on Monday and start packing us out and we take off on July 1st for our trek to Roxborough, CO. . . (a neighborhood in Littleton). We are excited about this move, yet greatly saddened by having to leave such awesome friends behind. I'm excited that several have already started making plans to come visit. . . .and even meet us in Vegas during Thanksgiving week for my BIG 40!!! ACK!!

Hunter just got over an awful UTI. . . poor thing had temperatures up to 105! I'm thankful for the shot she received in the ER (rocephin, I think) that worked quickly. It was only a matter of days between "my pp "tickles" to all out SCREAMING! Tears my heart open when my kids hurt.

Ian is just a mess. . . . a screwed up shoulder. . . 2 broken ribs. . . and a broken humerus. . . yet the boy doesn't sit still! He sees a surgeon tomorrow afternoon. . . I sure hope we get some sort of answers.

Tomorrow I get to go see "A bean on a screen" for a friend of mine! I'm very excited. I LOVE babies, but I'm glad I'm not the one having them anymore. Give them love and send them on their way! I'm going to be a great grandma some day!

Florida has been wonderful. . . we met some wonderful people, enjoyed come beautiful beaches. . . . spent some time with Mickey Mouse. . . . and I have definitely changed here. It has only takin' me 39 years to feel like a grown up, but I am finally here. Now if I only had the energy of my youth so I could enjoy this "middle-age" (what a freakin' swear word!) more!

Busy Day!

It was such a beautiful day today. . . I had to get out and weed. My Aloe plant was growing out of its pot, so I finally put it in the ground. I dug up some plants I never liked and finally planted some pretty white flowers I've had sitting on the porch forever, hoping hubby would get the hint to do something with them. I don't know if I will ever get it through my head that "hints" don't work; never have, never will.

My allergy eyes have been giving me issues. Never really have before. . . MUST TAKE ZYRTEC EVERY DAY!

The kids and I enjoyed our first spinach smoothie today. Orange juice, banana, couple handfuls of organic spinach, hemp seeds, and ice. YUMMY!

I'm looking forward to seeing friends tomorrow at Fox Lake. I love that all my friends' kids get along GREAT.
