Missing….

Momma & Daddy
August 11, 1971

I lost my parents within 2 months of each other, momma died Dec. 6, 2007 and Daddy died Feb. 16, 2008.  Well December should be a happy month with Christmas & all… but it’s also a reminder that my parents aren’t with us anymore.  Daddy’s birthday is on December 1st and momma’s is December 22nd.

My parents didn’t stay married long, actually they separted 4 months after I was born.  Their divorce was final on March 8, 1976.  I never knew life with my parents happy with each other… actually, they barely tolerated each other!  What I wouldn’t give now that I’m a momma myself to have my parents around to share Christmas, Thanksgiving & all the kids’ sporting events!  So today, I want to send hugs to Heaven to my daddy & momma…

Advice: Hug those you love often & never leave each other with anger or bitterness… you never know when it will be your last time to see them!

Does life ever slow down?

Good afternoon people!  I have been so busy since summer ended.  I finally got my bedroom organized (somewhat!? LOL), I started losing weight – I’m at 27 lbs lost now!!  Football season started, which kept us busy for 6 out of the 7 days during the week!! Thank God that’s over now!  My daughter was injured doing a flip in October and we are still battling on figuring out what it is.  So sadly to say no genealogy is getting done!  I’ve gotten no couponing done!!! And I’ve barely kept up with my cleaning calendar… but things have got to slow down right?!?!?!

Here’s a before & after pic of me, everyone says they can really tell, me… I still see all the flaws! LOL!!  Ok well I gotta go eat lunch, clean the livingroom & then workout!!  Everyone have a great day!!
