Never Boring

My life just can't be easy...
My life just can't seem to just roll along smoothly.

At least the deer didn't seem to think that...
The one that decided to run into our car...

Back to insurance claims.

I'm trying too schedule some time to be crafty.
Even if it is only a few minutes at a time,  it seems to help my anxiety to create.

My room is about 75% done and is getting close to being unpacked completely.   I am finding projects partly done that I don't remember starting and to be honest,  some of them,  i don't really know what they are.

Makes for some interesting moments trying to rack my brain.

I am going to get some things done,  if for no other reason than to make space for the rest of the boxes.


Ok , last one to "repost".  Too bad this app isn't user friendly with the dates either.

MBB and I joined a pool league recently. 

MBB plays and I attempt to figure out what to do.  :)  I am learning the lingo and can keep a mean scoresheet.

Seriously, it is fun and something that we can do together.  As long as I don't mind having the worst handicap that you can have,  all is good!


Another one that I thought had been posted!


I am liking being able to blog on my new phone while I am waiting to pick up my kid.

Now if blogger would only make it easy to tag the posts, I would probably be better about posting!


Oops... wrote this awhile ago and didn't publish it because of the label.

I was Catholic at certain points in many life.   I am not a practicing Catholic now,  but I unexpectedly start craving fish on Fridays during a certain time of the year.

Occasionally,  I do something for Lent.
This is one of those years. Though,  I admit that I decided to jump a little late.

What did I give up?

Yep,  I am not touching Facebook.

It has been a year.
And a very eventful one at that!

March 2nd is not just another day to me.
In 1997, I was trying to help organize with my work to help coworkers.
In 2012, I was newly married with a head spinning trying to figure out what we were going to do day to day.

This particular March 2nd is very surreal.
Yes, we still see damage around the area. . .
I took notice of some metal still hanging in a tree a few roads away. . .
There is a house that was foreclosed on and the bank hasn't touched it once all year.
But we are repaired!
We are all here and our family has grown with the arrival of our grandson throughout all of the rebuilding.

We are back on the remodeling path and are way far ahead of where we were last year.
OB is hanging with a buddy in our family room (which was the goal for last summer) and it feels good that he has a place to be with his buddies.

So, I can cross a lot of our future remodeling list and keep trudging with all of the tornado paperwork.
Even though the structure is repaired, we are still trying to replace all of the "stuff" that is no more.
