Sometimes the hours go quickly and the others just seem to drag on forever. Life is like that..a rollercoaster of emotions. There are so many things that need to be done you hardly know where to start. Luckily , I was already going through some household stuff and am glad to have some of it done. Living among the boxes now makes it hard NOT to be reminded every minute of my loss. I am so grateful that I took those years to spend with Mom.
I haven’t stopped blogging and surely won’t as it helps me keep in touch with so many who are so very dear to me here in the blog family. I may not update as often but sooner or later I will get back to my routine.
Around the neighborhood..Hell House is doing well for a change. Wonderful to see the sidewalks clean and the activity of kids around it again. Kids who behave themselves and we don’t have to call the police on them is a good thing! Neighbors have been so generous in giving us some meals and help. It is truly a comfort. What would we do without friends?
Here in town some streets are so bad..falling into one of those potholes you almost have to have a tow truck to get out. Town just keeps filling the holes and they just keep opening up again. The struts went out on the front of our car because we hit one covered in water and $380 later we hope not to hit one again! I avoid them at all costs. Local deer have been spotted closer to town now. They are coming into yards where they have never ventured. Shows how hard their winter has been on them. Bushes and shrubs have been stripped almost half way up by hungry families seeking a meal. Our local gas prices are about 3.18 today and milk was 2.59 last I bought a gallon, prices are just all over the place. Noticed the most beautiful red peppers in the store for 1$ a piece the other day.Big as my whole hand! HUGE..not sure where they were grown but so nice. Made me wonder what the heck they were using for fertilizer!! Local city government is warning that road construction will be a real pain this spring into summer when they replace a bridge that goes into town. Getting around will be a mess for those who live outside of town. Talk about detour.. more like a road trip!
Well just thought I would catch up a little here.. will post when I can get a chance. Appreciate all your thoughts and prayers..they mean a great deal to me.
