For 2015

I might have forgotten how to write a post - but here goes.

Chatty Crone goofing around in a store called 2nd. and Charles.
We are saying hi to you.

Well peeps it has been a long time, but I wanted to say hello - I think all the time about going back to blogging regularly, but I just know how much work it is and I am not ready to do that.  I did want to say hello and that I love all my friends!  I really do.  It is just too much for me to keep up so I don't, but I wanted to check in and tell you I am alright and see how you all are doing. Let's say a quarterly report.

Can you believe I actually wrote a book called Full Circle?


My life has gone 'full circle' this past year.  We put the house up for sale last year JULY 4th. I packed a lot of things just knowing the house would sell fast. HA!  It didn't sell so by October we took it off the market for the holidays.  Around Christmas the daughter started dating an old beau. The two of them actually decided to get married in June.   The hubs and I decided that once again we would try to sell the house.  Now remember things were still packed up all this time.  We put in a new carpet and had the house painted.  Well the house looked clean and a bit boring I admit - and we don't have an updated kitchen - but it is a big, solid house in good repair.

We showed the house 42 times which was a big pain in the butt, but why wasn't it selling?  
My daughter, grandson, and dog, Disco moved out in May 2.  My daughter was out not one week when she started finding out the truth about her fiance.  They were not good things at all and having four children didn't help things either.  

She changed her mind and asked if she could move back home - with grandson - and Disco!  Well what can I say about that?

Okay I haven't really been here for you - BUT if you email me I will answer you!!!


We watched every single piece of furniture that had moved out one month  prior - came right back in.  

We are back to a completely full house again.

We have decided to stay here - so after we brought all her stuff back in - I unpacked all of the items I had packed a year ago and hubs put all the pictures back on the wall.  It is a real home again.  The grandson is thrilled because he really didn't want to leave, but he wanted to make things work. He is starting his first year in high school and has four more years till he graduates and we will re-evaluate things then.

You know what I think - I think God knew they would be back all along - and that no matter how many people came to see the house 42 or 1000 - if God didn't want it sold - it wasn't going to sold..  We had a couple really low ball offers, but said no to them.  Ironically we took it off the market JULY 4th.

So within the last year (actuality) - we went full circle.  Everything was packed - everything was unpacked.  A lot of emotions things going on too - trust me.  Tensions are high.  These is three generations trying to live together with all different views on life.

Tried a diet and finished it early!  

We went swimming this summer and had friends over for pizza.  We left Disco at home and he got into a little trouble.

He was mad we got home before he got into the box!  

Ok right after that we worked on our garage sale - we had been putting things in the garage all summer long.  It took a couple of weeks to get it set up and ready.  We had it last Friday and Saturday.  Then we took two car loads of the items left to Good Will - and now the house is ours again!!!  Well sort of - because now everyone thinks they can start saving things again and soon the house will be junked up again.

The two boys went up to Ohio to be with my son and his son and went camping when it was 97 degrees!  

My boys look hot don't they?

Had surgery on my finger and it all turned out okay.

I have enjoyed good health and healing and I am grateful!!

This week my daughter started back to work teaching and my grandson had a couple weeks longer.  He goes to a Christian school and has to wear uniforms and buy books and had to get everything ready - so that took another couple of weeks.  

Well that is what I have been doing this past year - it is why I am tired - and why I am not blogging much!!!

So what have you all been doing?  
Tell me in your comments please.  
I want to know what is going on with you!
