Trying again....much later!

6 years, I think, since I last posted here. Seems I didn't do too well with my blogging. I was super busy at the time I started all of this. I still had my daycare in my home at that time. I have since retired from that. My husband had retired the last time I posted. We still take care of  3 of our grandchildren after school every day and in the summer months. Life has slowed down a bit, too.

My mom passed away a little more than a year ago and I really miss her, but she had Alzheimer's disease and it truly was a blessing to see her out of that misery. It is such a terrible disease. I know she is at home with God now so I am thankful for that.

I have been trying to settle into this latest phase of my life. A slower pace, but still busy, as I said, being a helpmate to my husband and taking care of the grands. But with them being in school there is more time for us to do some of the things we enjoy and some things we just need to do! And hey! I finally lost that weight! Yea me!! :)

So...we'll see where this leads. Hopefully I'll have a little more time to devote to this now. And maybe, just maybe, I can learn a little more of the ins and outs of blogging! :)
Until next time....God bless!

Laughing at my last post

Just read my last post from July 2011....LOL   Said maybe I' be back before 2013....well it's almost that, and I'm back - who knows for how long!  I would love to become a successful blogger, if only to keep track of my life's goings on for myself. I'm almost certain no one else reads them.
Well, it's late and I am just fiddling around. Need to get to bed. Hoping I can use this blog for something good.
Good night moon! Ha!

Feeling better!

Praise the Lord! I have felt so bad for so long...good to have a day when I feel half way human! So many have been so kind to pray for me. I hope and pray I am on the right track with the vitamins now.

New baby coming to my daycare tomorrow, so I really should get to bed. I have so many things I want and need to accomplish here in my home. Hoping that I will continue to feel better each day so that I can soon concentrate on the things I need to do here. And so hoping I'll be feeling well enough by September that Henry & I can take a little mini vaction and go somewhere to get away for a few days!!

Thank You Lord for Your blessings on me and mine!

Wow! Long time!

Almost 2 years since I last posted! I'm not very good at blogging! As anyone can tell! ;-)

Soooooooooo...lots has happened in my life since my last post....won't even try to catch up. But I thank the Lord for all the valleys and mountain tops I've crossed since then! He grows us through all these things and so I wouldn't be the person I am today without them! Praise His Name!

I've been having health problems the past 3 or 4 months and don't have a clue what is going on and neither does my dr. it seems. Why is it that when they can't figure out what's going on they want to try to blame it on stress? Yes, my life is stressful at times, but no more so than many other people's lives. Ugh! I've been through this so many times and no one can seem to find an answer...except they think I'm stressed and that's my problem! Ugh! (again!)

Just a few short weeks until I'll be taking a week off from my daycare....can hardly wait! I am praying I'll feel up to Henry & I taking a short trip somewhere, just to get away from everything!

Well, that's about all I'm up to for now. Hopefully I'll be back before 2013! LOL!

I must have drifted off to sleep or something!

HaHa! It has been about 5 months since I posted something here! Good grief! Can we say busy?!

Oh well. Life gets in the way of many things, I guess! New grandson, husband retired, summer veggie garden, just daily ups and downs! What can I say? is good, too, and God has richly blessed us everyday!

Nothing too exciting to report. Pretty much same old same old. Oh! Wait! Remember back in January I said I would lose 52 pounds this year? Well, I think I later reported I had gained instead of losing? Well, I am back on track ( hopefully!) and have lost 20 pounds since around the first of July. Slow, I know! But better than gaining, for sure. Anyway....that just leaves me 3 months to do the other 32 pounds! Hmmmmmm...not sure I'll get the whole thing by the end of the year, but I'm trudging along with it anyway! Praying it will come to pass.

Well, this is short and sweet. Just wanted to stick my nose in and let you know I'm still alive!

God bless you richly is my prayer!

Good news!...and...( ahem) not so good~sigh~

We have that new grandson I talked about back in December! He was born on April 17, and he is a dandy! Mason Carter Jenkins weighed in at 7 lbs. 6 oz and was 19 inches long! Head full of dark hair , but I still can't tell what color his eyes are gonna be. He's almost 5 weeks old now and getting just a little spoiled, I think, but that's ok! Well, that's the good news!
Now for the bad! I said back in January I was going to do my best to lose at least 1 pound a week this year. Would you believe that instead I have gained about 7 pounds! Argh! Well, I'm not giving up! I'm still going to keep trying to get back on track! I need to get started going back to the walking track...we've had so much rain that there's been little chance, and we've had so much going on around here there's been little time to go! I know...excuses, excuses! Some one hold me accountable, please!

It's brand new year!

I don't do resolutions anymore...try to set some goals, but never make promises to anyone or myself. Seems everytime I try to begin a new project or plan anything too far in advance someone in my family gets sick or something happens to delay or change plans made. Sooooo....I've decided to follow the scripture Matt. 6:34 " Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. "
Oh, I know we have to plan for things to a certain extent, but worrying about it changes nothing! Some things we have a little control over , but truthfully, none of us knows what the next hour, not even the next moment, holds. So, I'll plan on planning things according to His will and not my own....
Christmas was good. Everyone was well, and we were able to get together, enjoy one another's company and eat! What we all love to do best. Now it's time for me to really start pushing back from the table. I have a goal...ahem...hopefully, of losing 52 pounds this *year* ....this year!...ha! I decided surely...surely, I can lose 1 pound a week! Surely that can't be too hard!
What do you think? One lousy pound a week? I'm gonna give it a try, at least!

Nothing ventured, nothing gained, they say! *sigh*
