Another overdue update

I don't remember the last time I updated you all but I figured it was time to now.

First, I had to get rid of my puppy that I talked about last time.  He refused to be house broken and you can't have that in an apartment.  He would do his business outside and then come inside to do it again.  We kept him outside long enough so that wasn't the problem.  We really don't know what the problem was.  A very nice woman on a list that I am on offered to take him to live with her down in central Florida.  She already had 12 chiuahuas so Lil Bit has company.  She changed his name to Luke but he will always be Lil Bit to me.

Second, both of my black cats got sick and I had to put them down.  It was very hard for me to do but there was no way I was going to let them suffer. I don't know what was wrong with them and I couldn't afford to have the vet treat them.  Now I know they are at the Rainbow Bridge and are healed and having a good time with the other animals there.

Third, a very good internet friend of mine died this past week.  She was the list Mom of a friendship list that she had started and I was a member of.  I had known her since about 1996 or so.  She was a very sweet lady and cared about us all on the list.  There are only a handful of us on the list but we are all close as sisters. 
We will miss her greatly.  Everyone on the list knows that she is a real angel now looking down on us.

On the stitching front, I have 4 projects in my rotation.  They are Aurora Cabin, Butterfly and Blossoms, A Mother's Prayer and A Single Rose.  I have pictures of 3 of them.  I don't have a picture of A Single Rose yet but hope to soon.  I have uploaded  the pictures of the other three and you can see what they will look like when I finally get them finished.
The top one is Aurora Cabin, The middle one is Butterfly and Blossoms and the bottom one is A Mother's Prayer.

This coming week end Dan and I will be going to Tennessee for his grandsons' birthdays.  I am taking these 3 projects along to work on on the drive up, in the motel and the drive back.  At least I hope to stitch on them.  LOL  We hope to leave about 3AM on Friday morning and will return sometime on Sunday afternoon.  I am a bit nervous about going but I am sure I will have a good time as long as Dan is there.

As for Dan and me, we are getting along great living together.  Because he has OCD,  he does most of the housework so I stitch a lot.  But we do share most of the cooking which we each have our own special dishes that we make.  Right now he is trying to make fudge and it is a learning experience for him.  At least, he is trying it where I wouldn't attempt it. 
The apartment complex had a party last Thursday for Halloween.  They said we should wear costumes so Dan wore a shirt that said 'I don't do costumes' and I wore a shirt that said 'This is my Grandma costume'.  Everyone thought it was cute especially the Pinanacle Pointe staff.  (We live at Pinance Pointe, Crestview Rental community.)  One funny part of the evening was when I was introducing us to some of the neighbors, I forgot Dan's name.  He hasn't let me live it down since. Oh, I even won a door prize(actually it was Dan's ticket that won but I went up and got it)...a shiny pumpkin that lights up.  Right now we have it sitting on our bar as that's about as much decorating for Halloween I do. 

Can't think of anything else to write about so I guess I will close for now.  Take care and until the next time, God Bless.

Long overdue update

Well, here I am again late in updating my blog.  I hope you are still with me and make comments because I like to read your comments.

I have had a lot going on these last few months.  First, I have a new puppy which is a miniature long hair chihuahua.  He didn't replace Kiddo but filled a void in my life.  I really enjoy watching her play especially with the cats.  It's a lot like Garfield and Odie when they are playing.

Second, my boyfriend moved in with me at the end of May.  We are getting along fine and are enjoying each other.  I have to get use to him as having OCD but that helps me out because I put off as much as I can when I can.  He does most if not all the housework.  You would think with all the time on my hands, I would be getting a lot of stitching done but I have hardly picked up a needle these last couple of months.

But on the stitching front, I did start a Christmas stocking the other day and did get quite a bit of it done only to find out that I had used the wrong color.  Now I have to frog everything I did that day.  I should have listened to the warning that morning.....of frogs croaking outside of my balcony.  I told them to stay outside but they didn't listen.

I still go to my group on Fridays.  They have a new group that consist of everyone that is the program.  I was elected Secratary for it.  We meet once a month on every second Monday  It's mainly to decide what we want to do each day of each month.  It also decides other things and we can bring our complaints about the group activities to the leaders of the group and they will go to the higher ups with our concerns.
I stopped going on Mondays when they go to the library.  Now that Dan(my boyfriend) is living with me, we go to the library each week ourselves.  We don't stay as long as I did with the group and I am not getting that much reading done there as I did.  Matter of fact, I don't get much reading done anymore.  We watch movies every night with our dinner.  I have seen quite a few movies now that I have heard of but hadn't seen.

Well that is all I can think of to update you with.  I hope it doesn't take as long as it did this last time to let you know what is going on in my life.  Hopefully, I will get a lot of stitching done and can show you pictures of my various projects as they come to life.

Until next time, God bless.

I am so happy

I had a date on Wednesday the 25th and it turned out great.  We met at 10:40 AM and didn't get home until around 3:00 PM.  We went to Ryan's for lunch and stayed there for an hour and a half.  Then we went to the walking park that we have here in town.  After walking around the walking lane, we came back to my apartment complex and sat in the swing that is in the butterfly garden.  We sat there so long, that we each got a small sunburn.  Neither one of us wanted the date to end.  We've been chatting on Yahoo Messenger the last week or so, so it was like we had known each other for months. 
We have another date set for Saturday the 28th.  He is from Ft. Walton Beach and will come up to Crestview to pick me up and take me back to FWB.  We are going to spend the whole day together.  There's whole lot of things to do down there than there is up here.  I will let you know how that date goes.  Oh, we met on if you were wondering how we got together.

Other things in my life, I have received Kiddo's ashes back and have them sitting with my Angel collection since she was my angel.  I really miss her and have such a void in my life without her.  I am going to get another pup as soon as I fog the house for any possible fleas.  The vet thinks that was what killed her as she couldn't find anything wrong when she did the autopsy(or whatever they call it for animals).  So I feel a bit guilty that I hadn't some something about the fleas.  What fleas there are don't seem to bother the cats. 

On the reading front, I have finished reading The Unseen by Heather Graham and now reading Catch Me by Lisa Gardner.  I gave The Unseen 4 stars.  And it looks like I will be giving Catch Me 4 stars also.  The book I was reading the last time I talked to you all, I quit reading because it was boring.  If I had finished it, I would have given it 2 stars.  It was The Cypress House but I forget who the author is.

On the stitching front,  I will be starting a project called Bluebird's Nest.  I have been working on one project that is called Conserve Energy  Share a Bath  as well as working on Summer Splendor.  I put Hummingbird and Hibiscus for a little bit.  The black fabric was driving me mad.  Sometime this week I will work on Northern Lights which is also done on black fabric.  It is a picture of wolves on a cliff and wolves in the sky.  It's very pretty.

Well, I can't think of anything else to write about.  So I will say see you later and God bless until the next time.

I know it's been a while

Looking at my last post, I see it was February since I last posted.  So I thought it was time to post again.  Sorry for being so long in between posts.

A couple of things have happened since I last posted.  First, I was in a relationship with a guy that is an American but lives and works in France.  He was coming to visit me at the end of March.  I was going to tell all of you about him coming, but I wanted to wait until the visit was over and tell you of the visit.  Well, the Wednesday before he was to arrive, he and I broke up.  He had only bought a one way ticket to here without a return ticket.  I think he wanted me to pay for his return back but I didn't wait to find out....I broke up with him because I figured he was asking for money and I didn't want to go down that road.
Since then I have joined and have been looking at men in my local area.  We'll see what happens concerning  that.

On April 9th, I lost my best chihuahua Kiddo.  She died in my arms while I was holding her.  I was going to take her to the vet on the 10th because she had stopped eating and drinking the last couple of days. But instead, I took her to the vet for an autopsy and cremation.  While there a lady with a chi weenie dog was there.  She said that the puppy was up for adoption and didn't want anything for her.  I got her name and phone number to contact her concerning the pup.  Not that I will be replacing Kiddo but I need a dog for my mental health which has taken a dive with Kiddo's passing.  I still have my 2 cats but you know how cats are.
Of course, Midnight my oldest cat has been sitting on my lap every chance he gets.  He knows when I am depressed and need comforting.  And I definitely need it right now.

Enough of the sad stuff.  On the stitching front, I am working on a kit that is called Hummingbird & Hibiscus.  It is done on black Aida cloth.  I would post a picture but I haven't found the cord that connects from the camera to the computer yet.  I know, I  know, I have had plenty of time to find it but I haven't unpacked all of my boxes yet....I'm taking my time.

On the reading front, I just finished reading Left for Dead by J. A. Jance.  I give it a 4* rating.  I always enjoy reading her books but not all of them are 5*.  I am currently reading The Cypress House by Michael Koryta.  It's not too bad but it's not going to be a 5* book, maybe a 3* - 4*,  The next one I hope to read is The Unseen by Heather Graham.  She is another author that I enjoy reading.  I'll let you know how it is if I read it next.

Well, I am going to close now.  I will let you know what they find out about what Kiddo died of and if I get that chi weenie from that lady.  In the meantime, God Bless You until next time.

I'm Still Here

I know it has been a couple of weeks since I last posted anything here.  But I am going to try and post something right now.

As some of you know, my cat Shadow got out last Monday.  Well, after a week of being an outdoor cat, she is back where she belongs.  How she got out was somehow my door was opened.  I know I locked it and nobody came in to do any work.  But somehow, the door got opened.  And with Shadow being so curious, she investigated the open door and went out. 
I got her back today when I came home from my mental health group that I am in.  She was sitting by a car in the parking lot and when she saw me, she ran under the car.  The maintenance man happened along and helped me get her.  Coming upstairs, she tried to jump out of my arms but I held her tight so she couldn't jump.  As soon as I got her inside the apartment, she jumped onto the kitchen counter and was looking for food.  So I gave her a pouch of food to eat and she ate the whole thing.  I figure she was quite hungry.  She has lost some weight which is obvious but doesn't look any worse for being outside for a week.

Other than that, not much has really been going on with me here.  I have been stitching on Brown Bear off and on.  My stitching mojo is sporadic at the moment....I will stitch one day and not stitch for 2 or 3 days.  I want to start something new but I don't know what right now so I work on something that I have already started.

This evening(20) the complex is having a Mardi Gras party.  I am thinking of going and maybe meet some of the other residents.  I haven't decided yet but I will probably go since I have nothing here to hold me back from going.

That's about it right now that I can think of to write.  I might post something about the party tomorrow if I go to it.  So until the next time, God Bless.

This and That

Here it is February already.  My birthday(Jan. 28) has come and gone.  Just relaxed at home and stitched some.  Had several birthday wishes on Face Book and in my yahoo groups.  I want to thank those you wished me a happy was greatly appreciated.

Right now I am watching the Super Bowl while I am stitching.  I started on a new Christmas project called Peace on Earth.  It will be a quick is mainly bells with the saying, 'Peach on Earth Good Will to Men.'  It was one of the kits that I was able to save.

You know how those who have had a limb amputated and they have phantom pains....that's how I am with the stash that I had lost in the move....I still have kits calling to me even though I no longer have them in my possession.   I did find an extra Last Supper in the kits that I rescued so I will be working on it this year.  Only thing it will not be on the 28ct. Laguna like I was doing the other one but it will be on the beige 14ct. Aida.

I went to Rent a Center and rented a TV as well as a washer and dryer.  I thought my TV wasn't working so I decided to rent one.  Turned out that the DVR was bad and was causing the TV to turn off and on all the time.  I don't know if I will have them pick up the new TV or not...I really like it as it is HD and has a DVD player built into it.
I used my washer and dryer for the first time today....boy do I need to get used to all the bells and whistles on it.  I have to learn when the rinse cycle is ready for me to put in the fabric softener.  I got use to my other washer where I put everything in at the beginning of the wash cycle.  I may go back to using Bounce dryer sheets...don't know yet.
Now I need to get a bed...I have been sleeping on the couch the last couple of weeks.  The couch is okay but when you have to share it with a chihuahua and sometimes a large black can get to be uncomfortable and crowded.  I was going to rent a bed but it would have made my rent payment to much and I figured the TV was important so I could stitch while watching it.  I would listen to audio books but something is wrong with my CD player on my radio.  And the door on my CD player on my stereo won't open so I don't have a working CD player right now.

It's funny how I remember things I forgot to pack and bring over to the apartment.  Everyday, I think of something new that I forgot but there is nothing I can do about it now as it is all gone.  I am getting use to going up and down 3 flights of stairs.  I am hardly breathing heavy when I reach my apartment.  Soon I will be able to work out in the work out room that is on the premises.  And when it gets to be a lot warmer, I will use the pool....first I need to get a swimming suit.  I will still be a bit uncomfortable in one but I hope to lose enough weight that it won't be a problem.

Well, that's all I can think of to write so I guess I will close.  I am going to go back to watching the Super Bowl and stitch   Until next time, God Bless.

I am in my new apartment.  I have busy unpacking and that is why I haven't written anything lately.  But now that I have taken a breather, I decided I better update you all with the latest news.

I haven't stitched much this past week due to me moving but the sad part  of me moving was I had to leave most of my cross stitch stash behind.  Also a lot of my books.  I just didn't have the room for it all even though I am in a 2 bedroom apartment.  I did get to bring a few kits along but most of my challenge projects were left behind.  So now I will just work on the ones I have started and try and finish them this year and forget the challenge.

My animals did make it over although I was wondering about Midnight.  Sunday the 22nd when I was all moved in and brought the animals over, Midnight decided to hide.  I couldn't find him anywhere in the house.  So we brought over Kiddo(my chihuahua) and Shadow( my other black cat) both of them in cages.  I left them in the cages while we went back to the house to see if Midnight came out of hiding.  He still wasn't to be found so we waited a little bit.  Finally, he came out of hiding and I put him in his cage and brought him over to the apartment.  Then I let all 3 animals out of their cages.  Midnight ran and hid under the couch and didn't come out for 24 hours.  Shadow snooped around and settled right in and Kiddo did the same although Kiddo did follow me around everywhere.

I left most of my furniture at the house including my king size bed which made me very upset.  My son wouldn't move the bed for me and I couldn't move it by myself.  So it stayed.  So I have been sleeping on the couch this past week until I can get a bed.  I also left my washer and dryer at the house but I don't think we would have been able to get them up the 3 flights of stairs that we have to go up.  It was hard enough to get the couch up them as well as all the boxes.
I had the cable hooked up and my TV decided to stop working.  So I am renting to own a TV and a washer and dryer.  I need to get a Hi-Def DVR for the TV so I am watching DVD's because I got a combo TV/DVD.  Turns out, my old TV works but it was the DVR that was bad.  So I am going to keep both TV's and move one into my bedroom where I can watch TV and DVD's since it is also a combo one.

There is a lot about apartment life that I have forgotten about.  It's been close to 38 years since I have lived in an apartment.  They had to replace the microwave because the one that was here didn't work.  It was so nice that I didn't have to buy a new one because the old one didn't work.  I like the idea if something goes wrong, I just go to the office and tell them about it and they put in a work order and it gets fixed. 

Well, that's all I can think of to tell you all.  I hope the next time I will have some pictures of my stitching to post or maybe my new apartment, who knows.  Until next time, God Bless.

Still here

Here I am.  I know I haven't posted for a few days but as you know, I've been busy.  I am almost finished packing.  I was hoping to move some things over today buy Jennifer(my DIL) had her car in the shop and didn't have an extra car.  My granddaughter's car is also in the shop because she had an accident with it and Joey (my son) is still out of town.  He is suppose to be back tomorrow night. 

I didn't start the Praying Hands like I wanted to because the floss is various shades of flesh.  They were just too close to figure out which was which. So I put it away and started another project.  It one of a bear. You can see it above.  I have made the same mistake about 3 or 4 times but I finally got it right.  Also, my progress on Santa and the Animals stocking is shown up above.  Doesn't look like much for a week's working on it but then I didn't get to stitch that much because I was busy packing.  But after I am in my apartment, I plan on stitching all day Saturday.  I will also set up my apartment but I am going to relax from all the hard work I have been doing.

I am also going to start using the equipment in the workout room that is at the complex.  When it is warmer, I will swim laps in the pool there.  I am really looking forward to getting into shape and losing some weight.I am excited about starting basically a new life.  It has been 7 years since my husband passed away and I really think he approves of the changes I have made in my life. 

My new boyfriend will be coming to see me at the end of February.  He works and lives in France.  We will be meeting for the first time.  I can hardly wait to see and meet him.  Like I said, I am beginning a new life.

Well, that's all I can think of writing right now, so I guess I will close.  Until the next time...God Bless.

Almost finished

I'm sure you all are getting tired of reading about my moving.  But I am almost finished packing. I have a little bit in each room left to pack.  Today, I worked on packing part of the kitchen and my Angel collection. 

Tomorrow I get to pick up my keys to the apartment.  I want to take the dishes and bowls I packed today, unpack them and put them in the cupboard and bring back the boxes.  I would rather be the one moving the dishes because if anything happened to them, I would prefer it be me and not any one else to blame.

I have called the electric company and they turned the electricity on today.  I also set the 20th for it to be turned off here at the house.  I also called the water department that I use and scheduled the water to be turned off on the 20th.  All I need to get set up at the apartment is water and cable.  As soon as I get the deposit for the water, I can have it turned on.  I also have to get my animals their shots before I can take them over there.

On the stitching front, I have been working on my Santa and Animals stocking during breaks from packing.  I have had to frog twice already because I had used the wrong color in two places.Other than that, I am enjoying working on it.  I plan on starting the Praying Hands next week.  Instead of starting a different project for each day for 15 days, I plan on starting a new one for 15 weeks.  That way I don't have to put it down after just a few stitches.  Since I have 3 already started, I am counting them as 3 weeks even though it hasn't been 3 weeks yet.

Well, I can't think of anything else to talk about so until next time, God Bless.

Monday, January 9, 2012


Sorry for not posting on the weekend but I was still busy packing up my computer/craft room.  On Sunday, I took it a little bit easier and didn't pack that much.  Today, I figured out which room I am going to pack tomorrow and what will be going with me.  Yesterday, I took out a lot of stuff for trash.  I had taken out an old sewing machine cabinet and during the night somebody took it.  I didn't mind, it wasn't good enough for Good will and I wasn't going to take it with me because I wouldn't have had the room for it.  I sure the garbage men kept the old non-working stereo that I had put out there.  I know they kept the old clock radio because I saw one of them with it.

Today, I signed the lease for the apartment.  We put down as the move in date as Friday Jan. 13th.  That gives me the rest of the week to pack and all next week to move stuff in.  I need to get the electric turned on as well as the water.  I will wait with the cable and Internet until I am in the apartment.  So there will be a few days where I won't be online.  I am also going to get digital phone from the cable company.  My pets have been classified as service animals so I get to keep all 3 of them.  They are my kids and I wouldn't have been able to decide which one was to go.

On Sunday, I started my 3rd start for the year.  It is a Christmas stocking with Santa and several animals which you can see above.  I also worked on it today and I am really enjoying it.  My 4th start will be the Praying Hands which is also above.  I will start it in the next couple of days.  I still have to prepare it so I can work on it.  Don't know what my 5th start will be as I have them in a big box and draw 1 out to see which will be next.

Well, I can't think of anything else to write about so I guess I will close.  Until next time, God Bless.

The last 2 days

I am sorry that I didn't post yesterday but I was so tired from packing that I couldn't keep my eyes open.  I went to bed early.

We closed on the house this morning so I offically have no's not mine anymore.  Now to get everything out of it in 2 weeks.  After I got home this morning after the closing, I changed clothes and got busy packing again.  That is all I've done today.  I was able to move my one chest of drawers out of my computer/craft room.  I sure wish I would have had another person helping me move it.  But I managed.  Tomorrow I plan on finishing the computer/craft room except for some hard cover pattern books.  I need smaller boxes with handles for them so the boxes won't be so heavy.  I will move my other chest of drawers out tomorrow.  This one will be easier to move so I shouldn't have any problem.

I decided to quit for the day and get an early start tomorrow.  I am going to take a shower to get the grime off of me, get comfortable and get ready to stitch some.  Hopefully, I can put in more stitches than just a couple.  I know, every stitch is a stitch closer to being done.  I am working on the Dear Lord one.  When I have a bit more done on it, I will post a picture here.

After I finish stitching for the night, I want to try and finish the book that I am reading at the moment.  It's The Help and I have enjoyed it immensely.  Now I want to see the movie and see if it's as good as the book.  I don't know what I will be reading next....I really don't have time to read right now.  But I am going to try and work it into my routine for the next couple of weeks.

With the money that I got from my share of the sale of the house, my rent is paid up until September and the deposit is paid.  I am going to sign the lease on Monday and I will start moving things in on Friday.  That's the day that I picked for the lease to begin.

Well, that's all for right now.  Let me go take a shower and then stitch. I don't want to think about packing or moving right now.  Talk to you all later.  Until next time, God bless.

Wednesday, January 4, 2012


Well, today, I put a partial deposit on my apartment so they will hold it until I can sign the lease.  Then I came home and started packing.  I tell you, it's hard to pack with cats in the house.  I no sooner get an empty box inside, there is a cat in it.  So I get another box so I can at least pack, then the other cat gets in it.  I can't win for least with the cats.  My dog, Kiddo, stays in bed under the covers because it is cold here right now.  So cold that I am wearing a sweatshirt while I am packing.  At least, the movement will help keep me warm.

Anyway back to the packing. I have packed 2 medium boxes of leaflets and magazines  as well as several magazine holders of my stash.  And I still have quite a bit to go.  I never realized that I had that much stash until I started packing it.  When I am settled, I will have to go through it and maybe get rid of some of it....the charts that I will never stitch.  I've tried this before and I never got rid of any because I just might need that chart later.  I guess I will start with the duplicates that I have of some of the charts and magazines.

Then I also have some of my mother's stuff still here.  I also have to go through it so I can get some boxes.  I am low on boxes right now.  I have several old Good Housekeeping magazines that I need to just throw out.  I don't have the time to go through them to see if there is any cross stitch patterns in them or any other craft I might do.  It kills me to just throw them  away but if I have to, I have to.  The same with all her fabric she saved for quilts.  I just don't have the room to keep it.  I know I could use the fabric for finishing ornaments and such.  I will have to see about the fabric...maybe I will be able to keep some of it.

Besides my stash my main stuff that I have packed are all my books.  Plus I have 3 or 4 boxes of books that I want to take to the library.  These are books that I have read, bought duplicates of, (I don't just buy duplicates in charts) and books that I will never read.  I know the library will be happy to get them as most of them are best sellers and recent published books.  Even if they put them out at their yearly book sale, someone will get use out of them.

Well, I better get back to packing.  There still is quite a bit to do yet and I need to get more boxes.  So until next time, God bless and I will see you soon.

Won't Be Stitching Much

My son found a buyer for my house and they will close on Friday this week.  I then have 2 weeks to move everything out of the house and into my apartment.  So I won't be getting much stitching done for the next 2 weeks.
I will be packing all day tomorrow and every day after that.  Besides, most of my stash is already packed.  I just kept out a few kits so I could start the challenge.  So if I stitch tonight, it will be on one of the 2 that I have already started because the rest will go back into their packed box.

I am really excited about moving into an apartment.  I won't have to worry about anything if it goes wrong.  The landlord will have to take care of it...that's the main reason I am moving.  I just couldn't do the upkeep of the house anymore.  I am moving from a 3 bedroom house down to a 2 bedroom apartment.  So I will have to get rid of a lot of stuff while I am packing.

 I will try to post some more about my move tomorrow.  As I want to get in a few stitches tonight while I can.  Talk to you all tomorrow.

My January Crazy Challenges

I started on my January Crazy Clallenge on the 1st with a project called Dear Lord.  It is the poem of  'So far today...'  It has the poem and teddy bears on it.

The 2nd one I will start today.  It's called And the Two Shall Become One.  It is a marriage sampler.

I also wanted to show you the last finish I had for 2011.  It's called Love Spoken Here.

I will be taking a break from packing today to start stitching on And the Two Shall Become One.  I really wish I was finished packing because I am getting so tired of it.  Hopefully, the people who looked at the house last week will be buying it.  I hope and pray that they will as well as crossing my fingers.  I really want to get into my new apartment and out of this house.

While I have been packing my stash, I have found several projects that I had forgotten that I had started or bought.  It was like Christmas when I found them and looked through them.  I have inclueded them into my Crazy January Challenge so hopefully, I will get them finished this year.  I still have some stash to pack and that will be what I do today.

That's about it for now.  I hope the next update will be tomorrow January 3 when I show my 3rd start of the year which will be a suprise to me also.  I just reach into my box of kits and pull one out each day.  Until tomorrow, God Bless you.

My First Blog Entry

This is my first blog entry.  I never thought I would have a blog but decided to give in and make one.  I will probably have questions for the rest of you on how to do things. 

I decided to make a blog because I needed a place to post my pictures of my stitching.  Webshots is now charging me to post pictures and I don't feel like paying.  So I decided to be like others and blog.  It will also help me with my writing as I tell you what is going on in my life.  So the beginning of January sounded like a good time to start blogging.

So welcome to my first blog post.  I plan on updating every day.
