Lot's going on!

Hello everyone,

Here is the first update.  Monday Hubby got the pins removed from his hand.  He will still need to have lots of theraphy before he is able to move his wrist.  The positive is that all the pain is now gone and he can move his fingers a little.  : )

We had a team of family members over for the last 3 days doing all the tree triming and weed pulling.   The final count was 16 -  50 gallon bags of grass, weeds, and tree branches.  I have never seen so many spiders in my life!  Not to mention the Potatoe Bug that ran accoss the top of my foot!  Eeeek!  We found lots of fire wood. normally we would use it for our outdoor firepit - but there's not time to enjoy a campfire lately. : {

We've also been Painting and adding Crown Molding to our Dinning Room and Kitchen so we can finish the final touches of the wow factor we are striving for, once the house is staged for our open house.  We had a Dark Cranberry Wall Color, on our Dinning room walls, and hubby needed to put 2 coats of primer to cover that puppy up!  I don't think the new home owners would like our, what I like to call, Regal Dinning Room Color.
In order for us to stage our home, we need to have all the walls covered with neutral colors.

Yesturday, I finally got a free moment to go out and purchase some boxes, so that I can begin packing up my room.  : (  I had to buy 16 x 16 cubes, otherwise any bigger than that would be to heavy, once the paper pads start going in.  I even tryed to fill one box with just paper pads......no way is that gonna happen!  Way to heavy!  So, I have to fill each box with 4 paper pads max - then the rest with light weight items.
I'm also taking my rubberstamps off of the wooden blocks to save on the weight of the wood stamps. So I have been spending my evenings doing that.

DeraLynn  - I'm so sorry I have not mailed your bottle yet : (  It will be in the mail tomorrow - look out for it.

I'm going to be MIA for a while : )

Hello everyone,
First of all let me appoligize  for not keeping my blog updated.  I have been extremely busy with going thru 13 years of 2 house holds of stuff. 

My parents have both been gone now for a while and I have not sorted thru their items for years, because I could not bring myself to do it.  Now I have to so... that we can prepare for are move.  : ( 

My husband and I have decided to sell our home and move out of state.  We will be moving to my home state of Colorado. 

This is a bitter sweet for me.  I have always thought that I would stay in my home for ever.. and now that we have decided to sell it I am experiencing so many emotions that I never expected.

I did not realize the deep attatchment I have with this home.  My children and Grandchildren grew up in this home and I will certainly miss it and all the wonderful memories in it  : ( 

My husband has been a city boy all his life.  We have had the conversation over the last 2 years now to sell our home and get out of the city (so to speak).  I have was born in the country and Love the city life.....but I am always happy to try something new.  So......, we have decided that we will need to make this change.

It is going to be a major change in our lives.  Together we will start the new journey for the next part of our lives..... to a slower life. 

We have lots to do.  It's a bitter sweet for me but I am egar to make a change and we have a positive out look for our future.  It's just a little difficult for me - but I am also very excited to see what the future holds : )

So for now I will be MIA for a bit and- I will be deep in boxes preparing for our move and, begin the staging of our home for it's sale. 

Our home will be on the market the first week in April.  I have begun to pack up my craft room  - so I will not be able to do any crafting for a while : ( 

I will try to keep a current post every few days with updates as our new journey begins.

begining today I will not be able to respond to everyones comments as I Limited access to my computer now. 

So for now,,,,,, I love all you guys - and I miss you already! 

I'm kinda excited to see what the future has in store for us and at the same time I'm scared of the unknown...But I do know that GOD has a plan and I have put my faith in his hands.  I know everything will be okay and he will guide us thru the next chapter of our lives.

Thank all of you for being so supportive and sharing all your experiences with me. 

I don't know how I could  have endured without all your positive and kind sentiments to keep me in check!

I have spent the last 4 nights up until 3 AM - recording the last series  of videos that will be posting for awhile.  : D
