Passing of another year...

Wow!  It's sure hard to believe that another year has just slid on by.  Where did it go?

Let's see:
Mom passed in July after a long, healthy, lively life after a short illness - sad but glad she is not in pain 
A new native Texan baby girl that is healthy and wonderful - wahoo

A new transmission in the car - $$
A newly adopted native Texan young girl that is thankful she now has an aunt - proud

A new set of truck tires - good grief 
A new non-native Texan but not a yankee boy that is healthy and handsome -wahoo

A new heater in the truck < short lived repair - gag
A happy 2 year old new big brother that's also non-native Texan but not a yankee - it is those small things!

A whole new heat / air system - $$$$$ OUCH but cool app to go with it!
A just conceived baby that will be a native Texan - yippeeee

A hail damaged roof ...well, I need to remember to call to reschedule the installation  - ugh more of those $$
A couple of kitties that love me - awww think 'purrrrrr'

A bone spur that is floating around the Achilles tendon - ouch
A great tomato & pepper crop - hey more than 2 is a bountiful crop for me!

A sinus clean out surgery - $$ but can breath now
A new boss - that lets me shine - whew

A few siblings that are ornery, nutty, silly and pretty cool - not bad for 2 native Texans and 2 Kansasians?, Kansasites?, Kansasidians?, Kansas people
Lot's of good things

More good music on iTunes
Blessed and thankful for all the family and friends.

I hope everyone has a good, safe,  blessed and happy new year!

Christmas is not just around the corner...

Somehow, it snuck up on me!

This will be the first Christmas without either of my parents.  Tough one, that's for sure.  I can't deny that it isn't hard.  I keep finding things in stores that Mom would like.  I bought too many Christmas cards too.  Thoughts of Mom and Dad are good though.  

We have new family members this year, Molly, Maddie and Harrison.  And a few long lost relatives thanks to DNA testing.  Confirmed some, found some new ones.  That is fun.

Sam and Millie are as goofy as ever.

Work is hectic beyond words.

I hope you and your family have a safe and happy Christmas.

WOW Time really does fly again!!

Halloween and Thanksgiving have flown by in epic quickness. 
And now Christmas is around the corner!

Where did the time go?


Work is way too busy and have been working lots of overtime.  Trying to limit the weekend hours so I can catch up on kitty snuggles and laundry.
