Thanks for stopping by!

Just a lil FYI......I write here for me and me only. I hope to use this space to help me remember the good, the bad and the ugly!!! I may also voice my feelings on a few things here and there, if you don't agree with them, cool and please do feel free to let me know. BUT....(there's always a "but" huh???) be nice these are MY feelings and thoughts and it's MY blog so again be nice!!! Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you will check back often as I'm really trying to make myself post more often. Sometimes just writing things down help to get things off my chest so to say, and it does me feel better.

Been a long time, very long time!!!!


OK, so a few months have passed and I haven't exactly been the best blogger. I'm going to try to be a better blogger and do more posts. I really do like blogging, I feel better getting it all out, so to say!!!

So let's what's been happing since we last spoke! We of course are no longer on "baby-watch". We have a wonderful 6 month old grand daughter born 6/10/10. Her name is Caroline Nicole. She is just the very bestest thing in the world!!!!!!! Wow grand kids are great aren't they??? I didn't realize how I'd feel once she got here and all. Considering they were in HI when she was born, I knew we had a grand child but felt sort of disconnected from her. Fast forward to Novemeber 6, the day after our 27 anniversary I got my hands on her!!! Oh what a day, what a day!!! Just like with the birth of both of our kids, I feel in LOVE!!!! She is a sweet lil girl. Our son and daughter in law are now in Norfolk, VA. He has orders to be here at least 4 years. I can live with that 5.5 hour drive after a 12 hour flight to see them!! They are all doing well, we visited over Christmas and I'll tell you I cried many, many tears after leaving her this past Monday afternoon. This was all knowing I'd be back in about a month or so for our son's re enlistment service. There is so much I want to blog about but I could be here all day. This very reason is the very thing that has kept me from posting to begin with. I just feel like I need to give lots of information and often don't have the time to sit and write a huge post, so I just don't post at all. So with my new found desire to blog again, I have told myself I don't need to have a huge post that gives everything I need/want to say all once. So little by little I'll write about the past six months or so as well as the present each day or so. Lots and lots to tell as I said a huge and major change was we lost our 13 year old dalmatian. She was very sick off and on since April or so. We miss her tons. As did our other two dogs who seem fine now but were pretty sad pups for a while. OK, I'll be back tomorrow with a new post about what who knows!!!
Picture above is our sweet, sweet Caroline!!!!
Take care,
Marie
