The Move, Kindergarten, Bead Soup and Life...

It feels like forever since I have logged onto a computer, its been a week.  The move last week went well despite the very wintry weather we had the day of the move.  Mother Nature decided it was time we had winter and she picked the day of our move to put us in a deep freeze.  It was a balmy -30C (-22F) the day of the move, lucky for us we hired movers.  We are not old by no means, but a little too old to be doing the moving on our own.  This particular day the money for the movers was well worth it.  Anyway, like I said the move went well for whatever you want to call a good move.  We have started to settle right into our new home.  Of course there has been lots of cleaning on my part, as I am a bit of a nut when it comes to sanitizing and cleaning.  We have also been acclimating to our new neighborhood, its a little different than what I am used to, but in time it will become more familiar. 

Kindergarten has snuck up on us.  I can hardly believe my little guy is going to be 5 years old this year and will be starting Kindergarten in the fall.  We went to his school today and registered him for school.  He seems quite excited....Mommy is quite sad. :)

I recently registered for a Bead Soup Blog Hop and I was one of the lucky ones to get picked by random draw.  I have to say that I am thrilled and have been wanting to participate in one of these since I started beading last year.  I have been paired up with my partner, Sonya Stille, she lives in Augusta, Georgia.  Sonya and I have emailed one another and I have sent off her parcel of Bead Soup Mix.  I hope she likes the array of things I sent her.  :)

Then there has been life happening on a daily basis while all these other things going on.  Sometimes life gives you a good dose of reality and sometimes it doesn`t always seem fair.  I got some troubling news the other day and quite honestly it brings me to tears at random times during the day.  Unfortunately, its not an easy fix problem and will take some time, lots of faith, hope & praying to God to get through it.   Please remember to tell the people in your life that you love them, appreciate them and let them know how important they are to you.  Things change on a moments notice and we will miss our chance to let people know just how much we love them.

That`s all for now, take care and have a great day!


  1. Hang in there girl! You’ve come this far. We had a family health scare this past week, which will probably end up OK, but it will be a long haul. So we’ll keep each other in our prayers!

  2. I'm really happy you're in the party! And oh wow, Kindergarten. Mine is in third grade, it's all happening WAY too fast!

  3. I sent your package of bead soup today...hope you like it. I will pray for you and your family that God will grant you the strength to make it through these trials. Jacob started kindergarten this fall and it was hard at first, but now I enjoy the break. Although I still have my sweet Noah at home with me. It is amazing to me how fast time really does fly.
