ANOTHER Updation.................
I thought this was cool & wanted to share with you. I checked on Snopes & its all true
I have always been fasinated by ships - don't really know why. As a teenager - I had a model to put together and it has just hooked me since.
Mom has started a tradition that when her children turn 50 we get to choose anywhere (within reason) we want to go & I'm seriously considering going to Mobile Al to visit USS ALABAMA and Bellingrath Gardens.

Note: Can ya tell I just found out how to do the hyperlinks? Cool huh?
Well hopefully I will be getting my new computer this weekend. I won't really get to play with it yet, as we are in the middle of moving (UGH). I think this is the worst move yet. So much extra stuff is in my apartment that doesn't belong there & so much to decided what goes, what goes to who & who gets what & what goes into storage (a lot of whats, huh), see, told you its messed up. But will be glad, so glad, when its finished.

Well enough rambling...........until next time America.........;))

another updation

Wow, don't know what is up with me lately - been blogging a lot. Hope you all aren't tired of me. Wish you would leave a comment or two to let me know that you were here!
Ok, so I had little Emma for a little while last night. First time since her surgery! So of course had to take pictures of her! So here is a before picture and a current one! Wow, what a difference! And she is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

Isn't it amazing? This was last night in church, she wasn't feeling all chipper & had just woke up from a nap & wasn't sure what was going on! Wish you could have seen the expression she gave Jen when she snap the picture of her! Priceless.

Now, I want to share a photo of a freshly bathed Savannah! Of course I had mess with her hair, but love the smile! God has definetly blessed me with some beautiful children & grandchildren!

Updat-tion is here
Sorry about the long span between posts, just have been so busy of late & blogger is not one of my top priorities right now! What have I been up to you wonder? Well..........

1. Getting mom's house remodeled had NOT been a snap up job! Putting in the flooring & fixing things we have run into several snags along the way.

a. found wood that has rotted from the window down to the floor - who ever put up the siding didn't put flashing around the window casings, so it has leaked & over the years has rotted the wood away.

b. son Jonathan was a real trooper & fixed it for us, put in new wood into it to replace it and has done a smash up fantastic job & it was his very first time to do anything like that, so I am double proud of him! Thanks Son.

Next we get to do my bedroom & I'm sure the wall board will need to be replaced as well as the studs under the window! So, am hoping that we can get a few crew together & do that one all in one day as I'm not looking forward in sleeping in a room with a HUGE A MONGUS hole in the wall! Then we will paint it & go from there!

I have to be out of my apt by the 22nd of this month & guess most of what is there will be going into my storage area for the time being. Then the girls will have to be out of thier place by the 1st of March, so needless to say, we have NO time right now for ANYTHING extra! YIKES.....I hate it when I put things off till the very last minute, ya know? I'm sure that I am not the only one who does this.......or am I??

Emma is doing good, will be keeping her on Wed so mom & daddy can go out for V-day! Haven't kept her much in the last month or so due to being so busy........I just want it to be ALL done where I can get my life back!!!!!

I am even forgoing a crop in Helena tomorrow night due to all this hoop-la! And I have an all day seminar to go to tomorrow for my job!!!! Its a finance & accounting for NON financial people class! So hopefully it will prep me for that last dreaded accounting class at Calhoun I've been putting off for a year now! GOTTA get back in the swing of things for my BS degree! Have worked really hard on it & am close just gotta pick it back up again. The rest of my classes are all at Athens State - so I NEED to get busy. That is my goal for the fall, to return!

Ok, now that I have talked & if you've read to the bottom of this - you did good, now leave me a comment! LOL
