That's how long we've lived in our house.
I'm still working on getting things put on the walls.

I like to call it "being prepared",
Is there something that usually requires a last minute run to the store? If so, what? (You're among friends, so you can tell us.)

She's still battling the ecoli infection that has had her in its grip for the past eight months. It's actually turned VERY serious. (I could go on and on and on with details, but I won't.) I ended up spending the week there to give them some back-up help. It was very difficult to leave and come home knowing how fragile things are there. We're praying God will intervene and help her find her way to good medical help so she can regain her health. These sweet baby girls need their Mama and her hubby needs his bride.

Do you watch "Ellen"?
She often plays the game, "Never Have I ever" with her guests. So, here's to you, Ellen.
I also have no Christmas presents bought yet but that's beside the point.

This is our youngest son, when he was five, dressed as the "Tree of Good & Evil". My children see to it that I'm haunted by the memory of this costume every-single-Halloween.
I was young.
I was stupid.
Guilty to all the above.
He is phoebic of green netting, but with a few more years of therapy he's gonna be fine.

Have you been visiting blogs looking at all the beautiful Fall/Halloween decorations. I could browse for hours. Thank you to those who let us peek inside your house to see all the Fall beauty!! It's alright to be a Voyeur in Blogland. Right!?
I think Fall is the easiest time of year to decorate. When one decorates for Fall/Halloween it's what I call "No Fault Decor". You got a pumpkin? You got a decoration! It's that simple. For that reason I'm gonna give you a little peek inside my house. Most of my Fall decorations are still packed away in a box in the garage (from our recent move). But, I've got a pumpkin, so I "got a decoration" or two.
Are you with me??!!
I've been very sporadic posting lately and have lost a lot of Followers. So, if you've stayed with me and are reading this I want you to know that I do soooooo appreciate you and count you as a Friend. That's especially important to me now. Since the move my local friend count is pretty much at a zero, but I'm working on it! Hope you're having a wonderful Fall and I'll soon be by to visit you at your blog. I PROMISE!!

Mister will be home in 24 hours!
Things have changed a little since he's been away.

I love seeing how people within a
family react to each other.
Some would call this "being nosey"
but I prefer to call it "curiosity".
If you follow me regularly you know that our family is very scrambled at the moment and has been for over a month now. HK is with me, and Mister is with our youngest son (in Atlanta). HK is 2 and here's a couple of our recent conversations:
Me: Can you put that paper in the trash, please?
HK: No thank you.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Me: You Go Girl!
HK: (shaking head, sadly) I don't wanna go.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Now that youngest son is feeling better I get the occasional text or phone call from him which begins with "Can you tell Dad...". Then I have to find a way to discreetly tell Dad whatever it was that son didn't actually want to look his Dad in the eyes and say.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
And, if any of my family is reading this please make note:
"I know I am never on time with birthday cards and the like. I used to be, but that ship has sailed and it's never coming back to port. From now until eternity you can count on a call on your birthday, then expect to receive your card/gift the next week."
You can blame it on one of the following:
b. Your Dad
d. None of the above

She is our early Christmas present.
We didn't expect to see her sweet face until Dec. 1.
She is doing VERY well.
Thank you so very much to those of you who have prayed for her and Lil' Mama. Gentry is very much our miracle baby and we'll never forget it!
Over & Out!

Three days ago. . .
I talked with our youngest son (who lives in Atlanta). It was noon and he called as he was leaving work. He was caught up with his work and was gonna cut the day short. He mentioned he had a headache that he couldn't seem to shake. We chatted about all sorts of things as he drove home.
Early, that very evening, I got another call.
That same son (38 yr old) was in the hospital and had had a stroke. We made arrangements for Mister to fly into Atlanta ASAP. I remain here with my Mom. Our son continues in ICU. We are so very thankful he was able to drive himself to the hospital and that he is being cared for in a good hospital with a good neurology team. We are shaken, but we know we have a source of strength directly from God the Father that will keep us as we deal with what lies ahead. I believe that healing will come, so this is not meant to be a "downer" post, but instead a call for those who pray to join with us in prayer and become a part of our son's healing. I know God will hear your prayers and bless you as you become a part of our prayer team. Thanks so much.
ALSO, I think my last post was misleading.
Lil' Mama hasn't had the baby yet.
She is pregnant with a baby girl who isn't due to arrive until Dec. 1. We have lots to pray for and are confident "God has got this" all in his hands.
August 1st - my favorite month of the year.
Thankful for sunny, blue skies that evoke happy thoughts. Hope your world is spinning as you want and that your A/C keeps on crankin'.
