Back to the "blogging" world

Hello my friends!  It has been a very long time since I have blogged and I have missed letting you know what is going on around here.  I just seemed to be so bogged down in things for the last year and I could never seem to find the time to sit down at the computer - but so much has changed in just the last couple of months.  I think that I am ready to come back.

As some of you know, Dan and I sold the house in Lake Placid and have moved back up to the North Florida area.  We think that this is the best move for us at this time in our lives and we have brought my mom up here too.  She purchased her own home and has been busy the last month getting unpacked. We (or I should really say I) have been in touch with an oncologist and they have requested all of mom's records from Watson Clinic.  As soon as they receive them and a doctor reviews them they will call to set up an appointment for mom and we can go forward with her treatment.  We are not sure, at this point, what the course of treatment will be but we do need to have the problem dealt with.

Dan and I are in a holding pattern right now when it comes to the house here.  We  purchased another foreclosure and we are trying to tie the remodeling money into the mortgage so we are waiting for the contractor to get all the paperwork filled out for the bank.  He had a scope of work completed and then Dan decided to change up some things on the "new" garage and the family room.   I won't take the time today to go into all the details of what we want to do to the house, but lets just say that we will pretty much have a brand new house when we are finished.

The hardest part of this move (for me anyway) is not seeing the babies every day.  I knew I would miss them but it has been a lot harder than even I thought it would be.  The one saving grace has been Skype - I am able to see them at least once a week - but it still isn't the same as being able to hold them and love on them in person.  I can not begin to tell you how my heart swells when I answer the phone and here "Hi NANA!"  - it brings an instant smile to my face!  They are my loves and I miss them!

I really don't have much else to say today - I just wanted to let those of you that still read this blog that I am back - that I will be blogging about what we are doing and I'll have lots to say about the house remodel (when we ever get that started) and will even throw in some other stuff too.  Next weekend is Autumn Fest and the car show - so I'll probably have some pictures then.
Until then - take care and I'll talk to you soon!

  1. Big hugs from my side of the border ;) Hopefully everything is going the way you want it with the new home. Having lost my Mom last year I also wish the best for your Moms treatment! It is great that you at least can see the girls on Skype, such a great tool to keep families connected. Lot of love, Sue
