New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve....how time flies. 2015 tomorrow. The kids are all going to friends houses tonight, leaving mom and dad home alone.....with the dog. That's ok with me. Chicken pizza, a movie, to sleep before midnight. It's all good. As far as resolutions...my only resolution is to have none. That one, I will have no trouble keeping. What is everyone else planning for tonight? Sign in to see full entry.

Reconnecting

My mom's passing brought old friends out of the woodwork this past July. It has been an incredible time of reconnecting. I find that as I get older, it is relationships that matter most in life. I wish we could have this same view when we are young. But I suppose that is life and growth and the way it is meant to be. Sign in to see full entry.

So Happy to be Back

I am so happy to be back. I have thought of all of you over the years and have so missed being here! Has it really been since 2009? How quickly time passes. So much has happened since then. My nephew was just coming to live with us at the time I went off blogit. He is now engaged to the daughter of our good friends. One of my daughters is now married, another has been traveling out of country (her goal is to start a Special Needs Childrens' Home in Haiti). My job has changed dramatically (in a...

New Year's and Stuff

My nephew has now been living with us for 3 months. There have been some ups and downs, but overall, it has been good. He and my daughter started an online cookie business, but after just a few orders, Anna could tell that it was going to be stressful for her and would eventually drain her and spoil her love for cooking. So they stopped. Just today, I took down the flow charts they had hung on the kitchen wall. Tomorrow morning, Robert will leave for Denver. He is going home for two weeks to see...

Still Around

How odd that I am still on blog it. My account says it will be canceled, but still it remains. I guess I will take advantage of it. So much going on here. Our friends' 22 year old daughter, Jessica, died on December 9. I think I had written about her before. I just can't make sense of it. Can't get over it. I have so many questions. She had just finished college, found a good job, and married a great guy. And then found out she had a rare cancer. PNET tumor. She fought for 18 months, before... Sign in to see full entry.

Hello!

So, I keep thinking that blog it is going to cancel my subscription. But seems it keeps on going. And here I am. I figure if they continue to be generous, maybe I should continue to write. It is cold again. It seems I was just writing entries about Spring, and here we are, going through Winter once again. I think at this time last year, we were starting to paint out house. Most of that task is done. Only the kitchen is left, which our nephew and our daughter's boyfriend said they want to do for... Sign in to see full entry.

Cats and Christmas Trees

This may be a repeat post, but since its Christmas time (again), I thought it would be appropriate to re-post it. Sophie loves Christmas....the lights, the tinsel, the ornaments and the activity. When I hear about her holiday adventures every year, I am always reminded that I have two of the laziest cats in the world. Sugar won't even exert enough energy to catch a mouse, and Spice is only slightly more "alive", therefore, although I do take precautions, I don't have to worry too much about...

A Circus Zoo

Well, it looks like even though I canceled my subscription, Blogit is letting me add entries. I thought that this past Thursday was my ending date. Well, that just shows you the state that my mind is in. Can you spell CONFUSED? It's been quite the zoo here (or circus, as my 17 yr old daughter calls it). We have had 12 kids running around our house for the last 24 hours. I am getting ready here to take three of them home. 5 of them are mine, so....let me do the math That means I am still left...

Leaving

I so wish I could stay around. It's just an expense we don't need right now, even though hubby says to go ahead and renew. I figured I might as well just start a regular unpaid blog. I will miss everyone. If you'd like to visit me, you can go to http://karen-simplethreads.blogspot.com/ It has been so wonderful getting to know all of you! I will miss you.

Thankfulness

A proufound truth hit me yesterday morning. I was driving to work and was feeling rather introspective. I was questioning myself as to why it always seems that I am never satisfied. Why it is that I always seem to be looking for something. Why it is that I feel like I am always on the "edge" but can't seem to find the courage to leap. Why does it seem that something is always missing?? And then it hit me....and it really was quite a jolt, although the nugget of truth itself was so simple. IS so... Sign in to see full entry.
