About Me

My photo
I am a person who loves life and loves capturing it in pictures and recording it in many ways. I have been happily married for over 40 years to my wonderful husband Mike. We have raised 4 daughters, were foster parents for 11 years and are now raising 2 of our grandchildren. They are the love of our lives and the light in our eyes. At this time in our lives, we would expect to be planning for retirement, but instead we are planning for the future of these children. Starting over so to speak. At the ripe old age of 50, I found myself as a mom of a pre-schooler again so it's the second time around for us, thus my title. We attend church and teach Sunday School. Life is never dull, as you can imagine. Enjoy the pieces of our lives and allow this grandmother some bragging rights occasionally, ok very often.

The Fun Part of Moving

 


Here is what I worked on today with the help of a dear friend (thanks Karen). We got some of my many scrapbook supplies organized. We made this space so pretty and ready for creative minds to enter. This is a sharp contrast to the garage that houses box after box of items that need to find a home. The plan for the summer WAS to go to the Georgia house during the week and pack, pack, pack. Then bring a load over every weekend and unpack, hang up, and put away. Much to my dismay, it hasn't quite worked out that way. See, I sort of thought the packing fairy would come and help me out but she must be on strike or something because I haven't seen her. The more the Georgia house gets emptied, the sadder it becomes and the harder it is to stay there to pack. Most of our previous moves have been for the company and they moved us. I just took my little packer girls for granted. They came, they packed, they went. I'm having a hard time getting in the groove. Now, when we go to the Georgia house, we pack to stay for a week. It's the reverse of what we have done for 5 years.

Not to mention, the calendar is mocking me. The kids start school in 3 short weeks. I have much to do in that time. But we are slowly making this home our home. Kayleigh's room is a work in progress that may take a little more convincing that she has no room for all the stuff she wants to keep. I will post pics when we reach that place. The kitchen is done and all the painting is done except for McKane's room. He keeps going back and forth from wanting an army room (green camo) to dirt bike decor. I personally would love John Deere so I could use all his stuff from Georgia. But he definitely has opinions. And he keeps reminding me that his room is the ONLY room in the house not painted yet. We know, McKane,just be a little more patient.

SO that is all for now, will post more pics of progress next time. I promise.
