Hiya!!! Yep, I know, it’s been a while again. I kept saying “I gotta blog today, I really gotta blog today.” The todays always got away from me—it seems like I’m always behind on emails (following too many blogs lol), working on multiple crochet items at once, reading, the quilts I’m still working on (yes, they are coming together, slowly, but surely), just everyday stuff, and doctor visits. I will get caught up—someday lol.
I’m going to try something new. Instead of trying to put everything into one post, I’m gonna start doing series of posts. So there may be no posts some days—what a shock!!!—and other days may have 3 or 4 posts. They’ll just happen as I have something ready to share.
In general things will still be under separate titles, but there will be some standard titles with the date listed. You’ll understand it as I do them. I promise, it’s not rocket science.
Misty is doing fine, it’s almost time for her annual checkup. We’ll see how the heartworms are doing then. Hopefully they will be fewer than before. They can’t actually count them, but the activity in her blood work should show some changes. She will have been mine for one year on September 6. She’ll get some special treats that day—it’s her birthday to me. I’m counting her as being 3 years old then, since the vets guessed her to be 2 when I got her. She is such a little joy to me. She sleeps under the sheet or blanket while I’m on the computer, and occasionally barks at me—just one bark—if she thinks she needs some attention. So funny.
Misty, up close and personal, in the chair with me.
I’m also gonna start using family names, except for one. I asked all of my family members if they minded if I used first names, and all but one, said fine, go for it. So for a few times, I’ll introduce them as how they are related to me, and hopefully you’ll get to know them too. To start off, my brother-in-law, Sput, his brother has been having medical problems for several months now, culminating in an amputation. He has gone forward and back, struggling to get through these problems, and has been a trooper the whole way. He is working hard with therapy, and has had several setbacks. Not sure I would be that strong, but he has been amazing. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
My oldest daughter, Gwen, has had a rough few weeks too. She lost her job, simply because of stupid people in bureaucracy. But she starts a new job on Tuesday, not as good a job, not yet anyway, but a job nonetheless.
Jamie, my younger daughter, Julien, my oldest grandson, and Marisa, his girlfriend, all get back to school (college for all of them) soon. Jamie will be taking online classes that, hopefully, won’t interfere with her job. Julien and Marisa are both job hunting, hope they find something soon.
Speaking of job hunting, I put in an application for the new Jo-Ann Craft and Fabric store that will be opening here soon. I feel that I could work around 20 hours a week, but I’ll just have to try it, if given the chance, and see how it goes.
Well, I’m gonna do some series posts now, so you’ll see what I’m going for. Hope it’ll help me keep up and give you something to look forward to.
