Day 4

Snow just kept falling and falling and falling last night we had about seven inches total. Everything areound us, schools, senior centers ect where beging to close before the snow even started to fall. It's funny how I do not remember that happening when I grew up. A really great memory that I do have was the Blizzard of 1978. Everything closed for weeks, my dad had to take a snowmobile to the store. As a kid it as very exciting.

Today is better, I seem more focused on the things I want to improve on.  Mabey I am getting use to thinking about it. This does not mean I did a whole ot better. I feel very sucessful at times and other times I feel pretty overwhemed with my thoughts.

Back to life.... I do know why our son lost his daughter, him and his wife became addicted to pain killers, from the accident. We learned through protective services our son was recently kicked out of the Army.

Still waiting for the call from Texas that they have our paperwork they have the fax but they need the original documents for court. I can't wait to hear the words,  "Pugg get a plane ticket you need to pick her up". Getting excited and worried all at the same time. Our youngest is 19 this year and graduating, I have  grandchildren now, Shaylen, Aylah, Ellary, Cash, Chloee, Carter, Corbyn, Angel, Michelle, Jacob, Josie and three more due in June. I love them all so much! They ae so special! I have babyset and they have went camping with me and spend the night but I have not been responsible for a little person for more than 5 days in alot of years. I also have a lot of baby stuff to buy, I found out the baby bed I have will not due because the spindles are too far apart. Boy so much has changes since my kids where born. Who would have thought, you can no longer lay the baby on their stomach this use to be the only way to lay them. Cars seets up to 60lbs WOW my kids wuld ave een in a car seat until they were 10. No blanket in the crib instead you dress them ina heavy sleeper when it is cold. I have alot to do. I have to buy, clothes, bed, high chair, potty chair, diapers, toys, crib sheets..................... lots of things.

Off to make a list, until we meet again

Isn't it something? We always laid our son on his stomach...then it was a no-no with our daughter...on her side was the way to go! Always changing!

The quickest way I can tell you to change your blog background (and easiest) is to go to my blog. Up in the left hand top corner is a little block that says DaisyGrayBlog Designs or something like that. Click on it and it will take you to their site. You can find one there you like (hopefully) and it gives you the code to paste under html under the layout section of your blog. Believe me, I'm technically challenged! Let me know if you can't figure it out. There are other sites that offer free backgrounds for free like Cutest Blogs on the Block too.

Have a great evening!

Good luck with your changes. I am only 38 yo and it is nice to know that even someone older? than me is not set in their ways. I worry that if I don't make changes now I will be forever stuck the way I am when I reach 40. I hope not! I am sure I can be a much better person. And I will be watching your journey with great hope.

Best wishes

Hey there! Just wanted to give you a little tip: Not sure what your financial status is, but having two little kids myself (age 1 and 3) we know how expensive baby stuff is. Anyways have you heard of "Freecycle" or "craigslist"? Both of these sites sell used stuff. We have gotten lots of stuff from them for the kids, strollers, clothes, toys, toddler bed, etc etc. I wouldn't recommend a used car seat just due to all the regulations but those are there as well. How old is this little one you are bringing home?
