I love my place....

Right after Christmas I found out that the owners of the place I live have decided to sell the place. They inherited from their father and just don't want anything to do with it. About a year and a half ago I moved in on crutches (and a lot of help from friends) as you see it has beautiful bay windows and is so much fun to decorate for Christmas. The good news is the management company that takes care of the place has my back and I have a possible place to move into. I will check it out in a week or two.

Well yesterday the Realtor had an open house so the boys and I headed to Fort Funston. It was Nick's first time there and he loved it. He has been acting better then Sly these days. Sly is having a bit of Big Brother syndrome...that or he is getting sick again. Pray that isn't the case. We didn't go to the water because loud noise scares Nick and I didn't want to freak him out the first time there. We will try again once it gets a little warmer.

I found out that the Open House went well and some of the people asked if we (my friends Aftan and Jeff live downstairs) wanted to stay. There is a lot of work that needs to be done so it will be interesting to see if anyone is willing to take that on and if so if they want tenants in the house. I just pray that everything works how God intends it to, so we will see how this plays out!

On most Sunday's I make breakfast for myself and today was no different, but I made my eggs just like Grama Papa use to at the ranch. For those of you who don't know what that means they were a little over done on the outside and the white was still runny. I can't stomach that, so the boys got a Sunday morning treat. I tried to get my camera as Nick pretty much climbed into the bowl to get the last of the eggs, but wasn't quick enough! It was hilarious!

Where did January go?

My Mother has informed me that it has been FOREVER since I blogged. I guess me becoming an Auntie is old news to her :-) The funny part of it is that I have spent most of my time since I last blogged with her...oh well I guess she likes to see things from my perspective!

I spent 3 weeks in Yuma Arizona over Christmas. I was a little bit afraid I would get bored, but had a blast with family and friends. The ten hour trip in the car was not my favorite part, but it was worth it. Next year Sly will be drugged so that it goes a little easier for me. It is a bummer because he use to love to ride in the car and now he is a big pain in the butt.

I came back to California to turn yet another year older and the funny part about that is I don't feel that old. I remember laughing at my parents when they said this when I was a child, but it is true. I read a great saying the other day:

You're only getting old when you find that your regrets are taking the place of your dreams.

I love it because it is so true when you stop dreaming you stop living.

Well after a brief stop home I was off to Florida to watch my brother graduate from EOD school. It was such a great time I didn't realize I hadn't seen my brother since his wedding so we were long over due for a visit. Mom was there too so I haven't spent that much time away from her this last month. Kyle graduated as the Honor Graduate which I am told is a very high honor and difficult to do. Kyle's class started out with 40 people and only 14 graduated, so just passing is a big accomplishment. To do it with the top GPA in your class is BIG!

Well now I am back home and faced with the fact that I might be moving again soon. There is both good and bad in the situation, but I know God will take care of everything. I have good landlords who already have found another place for me to move into. Moving is difficult as it is, but then add the fact that I also have dogs and finding a place can become a nightmare. I will keep everyone up to date as the situation progresses.

That is the update for now (probably not enough to make my mom happy LOL) but I will try and do a better job of keeping this up to date. My goal is at least once a week...even if nothing is going on in my life!
