Moving In

Moving In

Thanks to Roman May

We just moved in to our new home, and I am almost done getting everything together. I don’t understand why moving has to be so stressful, but it just is. The last few things I have to do are research satellite internet service in my area, get a few shelves to put up, and landscape the yard. These aren’t huge tasks, so it feels great to just have little things left to do. It is such a relief to finally feel settled in. The process of buying the home and moving in took almost six months. There were a few large repairs we had to make, so that took a while. The roof had a big leak in it, so we decided to replace the entire thing instead of patching. We didn’t want to have to deal with this again after a few years passed. We also replaced all of the flooring throughout the house, since the previous owners had unruly pets. Then, we replaced the cabinets in the kitchen. We are happy with the results and really starting to enjoy being here.


In June my nephew is getting married to the love of his life. They are going to hold their wedding in Estes Park, Colorado. It has been years since my family has been there and I am very excited to go. It is so beautiful and will be a great place to hold this wedding. I am hoping it won't be too cold that day. It can be pretty chilly early June.

Pool Cabanas

Our niece who lives in Texas owns a beautiful home. In their backyard they have a large in ground swimming pool and the landscape is gorgeous. They also have one of those beautiful pool cabanas that you see often having a hot tub in. It's an attractive relaxing area and I love spending time out there when we've had the chance to.

A couple of weeks ago we took a trip to Texas to see some of our family. Our neice has three grown boys and 4 beautiful adopted girls. The girls are ages 6,6,4 and 3. They are precious and adorable. We had a fun time with all of them. It was so cute how much they wanted me to play games with them. I love them all.

Scrub Tops

I work in a facility where we are suppose to wear scrub tops to work. I really don't mind doing that because I love buying new ones for the different holidays and seasons. It's been a lot of fun. Before we bought our own we wore matching colored tops but now we all have different varieties.

Don Pablos

We took a trip to Texas this past weekend to visit family and while we were there we went out to eat at a Don Pablos restaurant. I had spoon bread for the first time. It was so good that I went back to our niece's place and looked up a recipe to try it at home. It is cornbread with corn and cheese in it. So delicious. I could eat some right now. :)
