Out with the old,in with the new. Something borrowed , something blue !

     As the fierce nasty winter rolls out , spring has arrive much welcomed ! It has brought the hummingbirds, woodpeckers, 70 degree temperatures and much needed energy that has been void over the last few months. The trees are beginning to bloom and soon the smell of fresh cut lawns will fill the air ! Just the thought if it is energizing ! 

     It has been a busy few weeks planning for kaleys wedding and graduation that is right around the corner ,then it will be time to relax and enjoy summer. I know the pool chair misses me :)   We have created quite a bond last summer and I am anxious to get reaquainted again :) 

     We have had some great changes around here in just the few months since the start of the year. It was our mission to make sure that this year brought some change as things were becoming repetitious and boring . We have managed to keep on task with that and things are going as planned and as luck would have it, some things  have just fallen in our lap to help us along the way. Can't complain one bit , keeping a positive attitude and not sweating the little things helps . I always seem to learn the hard way but when obstacles get in your way, especially large ones ,it's best to stop trying to move them and simply walk around them and continue on and not look back... 

     Can log off without mentioning its baseball season :)  so happy that it's that time of year again ! Go Braves ! They do add that extra spark to the start of spring and beautiful weather . Opening day is pretty much a sign I need to get my back porch cleaned for the season and my tv back outside ! 

    Hope you all are enjoying a new season as we'll ! Cheers to the snow globe being cracked !

Are we there yet ?

I know it's been awhile since I have been here , thought that blogger had issues and apparently it must be my laptop .i have downloaded the blog to another device and it seems to be working fine, for now anyway, let's hope it stays this way.

This year started out slow and quickly turned into a tailspin. Fast approaching we have a grand baby turning one, a daughter graduating college and getting married, and another grand baby on the way (daughter in law ) along with much chaos and I can't decide if I am having fun, stressed, or want to stab my self in the eye to ease the pain some days lmao ! 

If we could just get the weather to cooperate I think we would be good. When it's nice and sunny warm one day then rainy cold the next you can't function . We all know I am solar powered and could get more done if the sun would just behave .

We'll now that I know I can blog hop without frustration and getting booted off or locked up I might just return on a regular basis now and post here more often. It was frustrating to leave a comment then it wouldn't post worse yet you get locked up and have to shut the computer off to get out !

Have a great day yall

Welcome to 2014 !!

     Although 2013 was a wonderful year for our family , I am hoping that 2014 will be the year of "Change" !!!.....Time to break up the stalemate of the same ole same ole around here !!...The last couple of years we have tossed around the idea of a move, but with one still in school it made the decision a bit difficult,  now with college graduation just a few months away, the talk has become more serious...Mr, Beth is now looking into either a job position change here, and if that isn't available then we will consider the second option of a complete job change and relocation. He wants North, I want South, we know which way this will go LOL, its not even up for debate at that point !!! Up north you have cold, cold and more cold, down south you have sunshine, beaches and mickey mouse, problem solved !!!! what more is there to discuss !!!!
     As much as I would love to move south I hope for a change of job position so we can stay put just a little longer until he retires , then move without rush,,,,,and do it when and where we want. The hard part will be putting distance between us and the grandkids...I have no doubt that if we moved to fla that the two boys would be down there within a year making fla home as well. Kevin has already said he would leave today if he had a job lined up, and I am sure if he was determined, it wouldn't be hard to find one.
     In the meantime I will be on a mission as soon as the temps start to warm up here . This house needs some serious de-cluttering , so room by room and closet by closet this house will get a spring cleaning like never before. It may look like a war zone while the process is taking place but in the end will be so worth it...

   On a fun note, I need to get busy planning Gunners first Birthday Party ! His Momma wants a Winnie the Pooh Theme, not and easy one to work with but we will pull out the creative magic and make it work ! It will be some challenging fun to say the least !! If anyone has any brilliant ideas I am open to any suggestions !

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Holiday and May the New year Bring many blessings to you and your family ! Will end my first post of 2014 with a couple of photos from the holidays to close out the end of a wonderful year as we start a New !!!
