I apologize for my absence.  My lovely Grandson shared his URI with me.  What should have been a week of miserable has turned into 10 days.  I see small steps towards recovery.  Monday Scott came down with it.  He is just watching old movies while he tries to get better.

In news since the great plague has descended:
  • We suspended Directv.  The Pin Oak, Quercus palustris, has grown so large this year )probably due to the overabundance of rain this spring) that it is blocking the dish receiver.  Since we are moving in a month, there is no reason for us to be shelling out money for a tree trim or dish move right now.  We have upped the Netflix to the eight movies out at a time.  Seems a good deal to fill in the time we won't be watching our usual programs.
  • Nate, Selene, Lennon, and Kukka all are in Wyoming!  A short vacation is leading to a new job for Nate!  They will spend the next month getting ready and leaving for Wy!  Congrats to Nate on scoring a great job for him and his family!
  • The house search goes on.  Most of the houses in our price range are tiny.  Like under 700 sq ft tiny!  That wouldn't be so bad, but the locations have been in areas that are not what we are looking for.  We are also looking at duplexes.
  • We are also trying to rehome the dogs.  We could live in an apartment without the dogs.  That would free up $200 or more every month towards the retirement house.  Right now, I can't talk about my feelings, I will later.
May you all be well.


  1. Lord I pray that you will help Susan and Scott find the perfect place for them and lift her heart in this matter. Give direction and peace I pray in Jesus' name. Amen

    (Susan, I hope you dont mind me praying for you on your blog. I don't usually do that. I just felt you needed a boost and I will continue to pray you get it. Moving can be a very stressful time.)

  2. Thank you Joy. I appriciate the sentiment.
