Too long!

I know it's been so long since I have posted. Lots of things going on here! We have a new granddaughter, Sophia Elizabeth, who is just so adorable and cute! We have had squirrels in our home and have fixed how they get into the attic and how they got into our house. There is nothing like walking into your bedroom and seeing a squirrel hanging on for dear life at the tip top of your four poster bed trying to get away from a Jack Russell.
2 days later the poor pup was bit by a squirrel in our bedroom. So happy that problem is solved!
Hope all is well!

Hey!

I am not at home right now and you can leave a message if you want to. Right now our house is in mourning over the injury of Tom Brady and his being out for the season. How sad for him and for the Patriots. It is also sad for me because he is the quarter back for my fantasy team. Oh well...

Yuck!

It's just too hot and too humid for too long here in Kentucky. We need an ocean here. Can anyone think of way for that to happen? If not then perhaps I need a nice long visit to the ocean. I think I may get my wish!
  • lovestheocean
    Hey call me Tyler was wanting to know if you all are coming by on Friday..I miss you ..

    lakes are just not the same, but I love the mountain here so much more than the ocean and there is no humidity.

Changes

Ten months of basically living here in this house by myself is ending tomorrow. Yeah!!!! My husband has a job here in KY and will not have to leave all the time to go back up to NH for work. God has provided a job here in Bowling Green for my husband doing exactly what he did up north and he is thrilled about it. We are indeed blessed. He has lived out of a suitcase both here in KY and while up north and I know we are both so excited to be together ALL of the time again. A few months ago when his company knew things were difficult for us they decided to fly him back and forth every weekend to make it easier. He would fly back on Friday and I hated Sundays because he would have to leave again. It was getting to the point that we decided I needed to quit my job so I could be with him most of the time. That would have been so difficult because we would miss our kids, granddaughter, and church family so very much and probably only have been back in KY a week a month or so.
It has been an agonizing several weeks while we thought and prayed about the choices we had and the negotiating of salary.
Thanks to all our church family and friends for praying for us.
Praise God for allowing all things to work together for us.
  • bekka
    Happy the changes is a good change. Living out of a suitecase is a bummer, Henry and I have lived that way before. it's never easy.

    So glad that God has provided this for you. The cat is still with us. We did not have to do anything dramatic last night. She seems to be doing ok, but it is still touch and go.

    This is the second nurse back to life pet situation we have had in the past year, Penny with her Parvo, and now Oreo with the attack. I am beginning to wonder if I am really a pet person. I feel I can barely take care of the three children, but adding the pets---sigh. ;)

    Hi Jacqui! So glad things will be settling down for you & Brian. What a blessing to have a job near home. It was sad not hearing from you on your visit thru. Maybe this summer. I loved seeing Olivia in Florida. OH so sweet. Her picture hangs on my fridge and I think of her everyday. Glad to see you are able to enjoy such a blessing.
