Temporarily out of order

I know it's been a long time since my last post. "Time marches on" they say and they're right. I can't believe it' s almost March.

Since my divorce, I have lived on my own and was getting pretty used to it after 5 years. A couple weeks ago, my landlord told me they are going to put my house on the market to sell in June and wanted to give me plenty of notice and first shot at buying it. I was in shock. I knew they were going to raise my rent but did not think they would sell. The housing in our area has gone sky high and out of my price range. Since I'm a retired "stay at home mom", the pension isn't that great.
Most of you know that I am close to my kids, especially my daughters. They both offered for me to come live with them. They are so sweet but this wasn't my first choice. I don't want to intrude on their lives and I like having my own space too.
Kathy and Kevin have offered to build on to their home so that I can have a big enough place for me and Sophie. We practically live together already with me being 3 doors down but it is not the same as being in the same house. But this is what we have all decided on that would be best for all of us.
We've been talking to the contractor to come up with a floor plan. He will measure and do some drawing when the rain stops. I am actually getting a little excited about it even tho I am sad at the same time. Giving up my place here is going to be hard. It's been my sanctuary and haven since the divorce, my place of healing and independence. I feel blessed to have kids that care so much about me and are willing to let me and my big dog come live with them. I love them dearly and don't know what I would do without them, they know this because I say it all the time.
So onto another season and passage of my life. It will be an adjustment but I've got some time to pack and get used to the idea. I didn't think that I would live in this home forever but I didn't think I would be moving out so soon either.
I will try to update more but no promises.

Happy New Years' everybody!

I don't know what you're gonna do tomorrow night, but I'm gonna stay home and be safe. I've had my share of New years' eve parties to remember, one I'll never forget but that's a story for another day, maybe.
It's been over 20 years since I've drank and I don't miss it a bit. Now I can remember them only a little better since the memory is fading from getting old but at least I don't get the hangover.
Our tradition for the past few years is to have a crab feast, watch the ball drop and go to bed wishing I hadn't ate so much crab and butter, listening to my arteries hardening with gunshots and fireworks in the distance..... somebody always has to shoot off a gun. We used to do that when we lived in the mountains but not here in the neighborhood. That would just be tacky. Besides that they'd probably catch me, handcuff me and throw me in the pokey.
Bein' the Fonz I have to be cool. Heyyyyyy.

Have a Happy Happy New Year!

I couldn't believe the size of the snow flakes, It was really awesome, it isn't as bad as it was when I useta live up dare in the mountains where I got up to 3 to 5 feet of snow, I like this snow so much better it just dusted the ground and it melted pretty quick... Nutten like having a nice warm fire and watching it snow...

Here is the table set for 10. It was spent with family and friends in this beautiful home. It was nice to not have to cook for a change.
The house is so big I got lost going to bathroom and then I couldn't figure out how to flush there new-fangled toilet. The home was just built and they have all the new modern type fixtures. There is a courtyard with a balcony. It has a castle theme to it, so it was fun to visit there.
Hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving. Thank you to all the nice people that visit my little ol' blog and are nice enough to leave me comments, you know who you are. You are all so funny and I do enjoy reading your comments even tho I don't leave comments on a regular basis on yours. I will try harder but don't make fun of my spellin'.

Car trouble no more

Nov 19h 05, originally uploaded by MomTheFonz.

Finally got the "Exploder" fixed. It had been dead in the driveway for about 2 weeks. Started out by not starting one morning after it had started ok a couple times. I had to go back home for something and then when I went to go back out, it wouldn't start. My daughter-in-law decided it must be the battery and cables since they both looked really corroded. My son came over to help Kevin with putting in the new battery, he also brought his 2 best buddies, Mike and Jeff. It was pretty comical to watch all 4 of them trying to work on my vehicle. There were a few beers consumed by these "mechanics" so they had to call it quits when it started to get dark and cold.

It was the starter that was the problem to begin with but I needed a new battery anyway since the other was 5 years old.

The expense was not too bad considering all the professional help that I got.
I had a Ortho-tech, logger, Beeman and a construction worker giving it all they had to get me back on the road again. Now I just gotta figure out where I want to go.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
