It's Been a While....

October 4th, 2009 at 03:39 am

I visit this site several times a week..and try to read up on how everyone is doing. I have even started a few posts of my own...only to delete them after a sentence or two. Why? Well, much has happened..and not all financial, inspiring or even interesting...

The hubs job is going well. He LOVES working in Alaska. I have to say, it is tough to have a long distance marriage..but so far, it is going ok.

The new house is coming along. The work on the kitchen is still 'in progress' I anticipate 3 more weeks before we are done. When the hub comes home he says he likes 'my house' other words, this is my house...not ours...

However, I LOVE this house and if it is 'mine' then so be it.

GD (age 2) had her steroid shot to hopefully put her arthritis into remission for a while...and so far, it seems to be working. Her doctor is concerned about her weight, which is a mere 20lb. She is very petite like her mom. It is just concerning, considering hse has a cousin who is a full year younger, who weighs 3 lbs more than her already. She is a little cutie pie...looks just like her dad when he was a baby...she is just a tiny girl...

Next weekend, we have our annual girls trip planned. My mom, daughters and DIL are going to Portland for a weekend away without kids. The hub is joining us this year...since we only see him for two weeks out of six...he can just catch the plane out of Portland on his way back to Alaska.

A co-worker sadly lost her husband to a motorcycle accident last week. He was only 32. They have a 6 year old son. It brought back so many feelings from my brothers motorcycle accident/death...21 years ago. My brother was only 29.

Ok...enough of non-financial stuff.

If you have followed my blog, you know that we have had many labrador dogs over the years. We currently own 3...a black, chocolate and yellow. Unfortunately, the hub failed to keep up on their heart worm shots before he left...and they have all been diagnosed with heartworms almost $1500 later, we have them all in treatment and kenneled so that they are as inactive as possible while they recover. Thankfully, DD2 has agreed to be the caregiver for them...(for which I will gladly repay her)

I am working hard on paying off debt incurred from buying and fixing up this house. I am confident that I have it up to a standard that I could recoup the amount I have put into it if we decided that we had to sell it. However, I would definately argue moving back to the country at this point. I so enjoy living in town. And DD1 is loving living in the old house...

Otherwise, things are plugging along. My job is good, kids are doing well...and I am looking forward to the time off next weekend and getting away with the girls. a free flu shot at arm is a little sore, but otherwise, no side effects...hopefully, this will keep me from getting sick this winter!

    We have a lot of small ones in the family - the docs like to freak you out. Obviously it's good they stay on top of things, but I think they needlessly freak out mothers. I think when the mother is extremely petite, it's kind of a clue that it's nothing to worry about. It affects the (baby) girls in my family anyway. Even the adopted ones, funny enough. All the boys are beanpoles, but their height keeps the doctors off their case it seems. They show real growth, appointment to appointment, even if just height. My boy easily weighs more than his older cousin.

    Glad to hear she is doing better.

    Motorcycles - so sorry to hear. Just found out today a second cousin of mine was in a horrible motorcycle accident. Sad thing was her dad was in one a couple of years ago. He recovered and she is expected to, but it will be a long recovery. They are blessed to survive and have their limbs, I know from other friends' accidents. I am so sorry you lost your brother that way.

    It seems the older we get life almost seems more complicated in many ways. You are so lucky to live near your grandchildren though. I so wish I did.

    Don't worry about your granddaughter. A good friend of mine has a soon-to-be-five year old who is 29 pounds. Nothing medically wrong with her - she is just tiny.

    Good to see you. Smile
    I'm sorry to hear about your dogs. I hope they recover quickly.

    Nice to hear from you (see you I guess is technically more accurate)! I hope the co-worker and child will be OK.
