Well, well, well ... look at me ... blogging. It took me half an hour to figure out how to do it again. I took the advice from an old friend who reminded me of the blogger she liked to read that I once was .. which made me look at what I had become since then. Yes, I believe I have become a FB rat! lol. All caught up in pictures of kittens, getting involved in stuff that doesn't really concern me, and even posting a picture of my dog's poop! I have sunk pretty low ... but the dog poop picture still makes me laugh!! So, I thought I would take the leap and see if I still know how to put more than 3 sentences together.
I was just reading the last posts I wrote which now seems so long ago. If anything blogging triggers a lot of memories I had forgotten. It's nice to put a date to an event ... and go... wow did that happen eg. in 2011? Ain't it funny how time slips away? (I bet you won't get that song out of your mind all day now).
Well, it has only taken 5 years and we are all settled in the new (now old house). We didn't have a clue what building a home was all about and how many things could go wrong. If I had to do it again I would buy a house not build the sucker. The house itself was mostly completed, but then there is landscaping, a driveway to put in (and remove two years later).. long story, a new patio, a shed, etc. Every year there was a new project .. and they never went well lol. But finally, it is all done. Gord just finished putting the final touches in his garages and workshop. He has a sound system in there that almost blows out the windows in the living room. My god!! No wonder when I talk to him he always replies ... what?
A lot of shit has flown through my life that I never mention on FB because all my relatives and friends read it. This seems safe again. I'm not a person who likes her business on FB... but needs a place to vent with old friends if need be. You guys were always there for me. So I think I will start a blog on a Monday... keep it through to Friday with my thoughts. I know if I feel the pressure of writing something every day .. I won't. But I have to admit this feels good today... thanks, Donna..
My heart is heavy for my bro... he has been fighting diabetes for many years and has been on dialysis for almost three. This week he has been diagnosed with cancer ... not sure what or where... but in his chest or lungs and tests are being done. He has flat lined at least three times when he couldn't breath and they have always brought him back. He is a fighter.. but with cancer ... that fucker takes it's toll.. most of the time especially when you are weak. So, I am preparing for the best and the worst before Christmas..
Penny Loafer is doing good ..turned 17 yesterday... she has vertigo issues... but as long as she get's up from a nap and follows the hallway to the door ...she is good. Man.. she is partially deaf but still can hear her squicky ball .. and tries to run for it...and she does.
I have gone on long enough ... and so enjoyed talking to each and every one of you that are still here. I will send you a private message on FB to let you know I am blogging again.
