Welcome to my home =] I believe in a total hands on, learn as you go type of existance bcause you can't cultivate knowledge about new things without getting your hands dirty. So if you're willing to watch me stumble through the process then check back often. This site will always be a work in progress... sorta like me!

Houston, We have a heartbeat!!!!

Filed under: Life and living it by speedy @ 6:43 pm |   

Two-yes-two grandbabies coming this year. Leann and Matt heard their baby’s heartbeat today so we can stop holding our breaths and look forward to their first baby coming in early October just two months after Kari & Matthew’s baby Oliver is due the end of July making Stella the official “Big Sister” WOW, five grandchildren… Pop Pop Michael and gram-gram Speedy are lucky-duckies!!!!!

We’ve actually moved back into our remodeled home office… I thought it would never happen. Two months turned into 10+ but we were able to do all the things we wanted and it’s lovely. We came in way under budget and have been breaking our arm’s patting ourselves on the back. There’s really nothing more rewarding than doing it yourself. We’ve begun several other major projects and hope to complete most of them by June but this time we are hiring professionals… should be interesting. The front and back yards have been trimmed back and a parade of contractors will be giving us estimates for re-stuccoing and painting the outside of the house as well as termite repair and a tenting and the replacement of an old bay window. We must have our pool replastered and some hardscape issues addressed as well as new planting in the backyard…. Yep, we are doing our best to stimulate the economy =]

March milestones: Trinon and Kathleen will celebrate their 13th wedding anniversary on the 30th.. way to hang in there you two in spite of all the family health issues and pink slip scare. On March 10th Ryan knocked on our front door and asked for our blessing to marry our youngest daughter. We, of course, said yes and look forward to him joining the family. Ten days later on the first day of spring we traveled to Big Bear and along with Ryan’s parents surprised Katy at a dinner celebrating their engagement. We are excited about planning a wedding for the spring of 2010 and wish the couple all the joys of this special time. Our family just keeps getting bigger and better all the time. What a wonderful way to end the winter and begin a new spring. This March turned out to be so much sweeter than last March….Thank You dear God =]

Exploring the links will tell you alot about what makes me purrrrr... I won't be putting up a BIO, you wouldn't believe me anyway. I will confess that words are a passion for me, thus the lyrics link, so I will be adding quotes or bits and pieces of songs that make my heart sing and you are welcome to take and use anything that moves you. I've probably swiped them from somewhere anyway... so enjoy.

Embrace this moment... Remember we are eternal... All this pain is an illusion.
