House Hunting

My daughter and her husband are currently in the market for a new home. They love theirs, but with his new job they'd really like to move closer. I don't blame them! They have a home to sell first and are hoping to do so something this summer. I know the right buyer will come along, but can't blame them for being anxious to get closer to his job. They've already started looking at homes in the area and recently found one that's very nice. It offers everything they're looking for and is even in their price range. Of course there are personal tastes of the seller that they don't really like...but things like Progress lighting and paint are easy fixes. I'm so happy for them! They deserve a great home.

Time With Family

It's been such a fun day! I've been busy packing, but have had time to take breaks and enjoy some time with our daughter and Granddaugther! Life doesn't get much better than that. We always have so much fun visiting and getting to see what our Granddaughter is doing now. She's SUCH a talker....doesn't stop. She knows so many words and's adorable! They're hoping to move back closer to the area...I look forward to that as then we'll get to see them even more!

Storing Electronics

I really love how far storage units have come. Nowadays we have storage units for all kinds of things. WIth all the technology that's out there it's nice to know that there are audio racks of all sorts which will help hold everything we have. Over the years we've accumulated many DVD players, TVs, Digital Cable Boxes, etc....and to have a place to store them is great! I like a neat and organized house so it's nice that there are options out there which help me do this. This all came to mind as I searched for one recently for our daughter. She'd really like to have one in their basement family room. With the Internet being so convenient I don't doubt we'll find something perfect in no time!

What Will They Come Up With Next?

I'm a little leery to try methods of dieting that involve anything but exercise and healthy eating. seems there are some pretty effective and safe ways to lose weight that are not only great...but also work quickly. Like ephedra diet pills for example. It would have to be something that I've researched in great length before making a decision, but I'm happy to know the option is out there if I should ever want to take advantage. It's amazing how far we've come with all of these weight loss methods...what will they come up with next?!

Vacation Planning

Planning for a vacation is quite the task. I love going away and getting to spend time with family and relax...but the packing thing is anything but relaxing. I've been busy for days making sure everything is getting done. Flying these days doesn't make it any easier...there's just so many rules and regulations now. It will all be worth it in the end though....a vacation away will be wonderful! I can't wait! I hope it doesn't go by too quickly...I want to soak it all in.


It seems twenty years ago you didn't hear about all of these ways to lose weight. If a person wanted to lose weight you had to do it the good old fashioned way....exercise and eating right. Now, there are great diet supplements and other options for those who are seeking an easier and faster process and result. I can't say I support or don't support these methods, as I haven't tried them....but if they're safe and effective then I say go for it!

House Updates

Over the past couple of years we've been able to do some fun updates in the house. We've painted, gotten a gas fireplace, redecorated and even updated our kitchen some. When we did it we couldn't decide between the ceramic tile and the lenolium tile...but in the end decided to go with lenolium. I just like it better...the feel of it, the look, etc. After having it all done I think we made the right choice. It sure changed our kitchen....what a great feeling!

Condo Life

Jake bought a condo last month and has already moved in. Actually we helped him with the moving. It is a great place for him to live. The other owners are all so nice which makes it even better. He painted and fixed it up very nicely. I am sure he will enjoy being a home owner. Before we left his place, a neighbor came by with some wonderful brownies. They were good enough that only half a pan was left when we headed for home.

Liporexall Review

We are finding that today there is a growing concern for an over-weight population. Society is running at a faster pace. It is easier to grab and go. With the change in our eating habits, we are finding a less healthier lifestyle. Many more Americans are tipping the scale in a direction that isn't appealing to their health and well-being. A liporexall review is showing a quicker way to burn that unwanted fat. It is something worth looking into.

Our grand daughter is quite the talker. Her mommy caught her a few weeks ago saying No to everything. Our daughter thought this might be cute to save for her to watch one day. :) We as parents can relate to this.

One of Bill's long time co-workers is retiring. Tomorrow there will be a luncheon and a presentation for the person and his family. I don't know if he will try to find another job or not. I presume that golf and other outside activities will be in store for him. I know that Bill plans on golfing with him this summer.

Catch Up

What a day. I spent the day trying to catch up after a couple of weeks of running. I accomplished so much. The washing is done. The house is clean. I even did some additional cleaning that doesn't always get done. I caught up my checkbook and did all the bills that were due. There was even time for some posting, which is always nice. Things are feeling pretty good around here.


We have a bichon frise who is 7 years old. Although she is getting older, she will always be our little puppy. For those of you who aren't familiar with the Bichon dog, they are such a wonderful famliy dog to have. They are so sweet, and very well behaved. She has been such a joy to have as a part of our family. She likes to cuddle most of the time, and is very loving. She's such a good dog too....we can leave her home while we're at work, and when we come home, the house is just as we left it. She's such a sweetie...we love her to pieces!


Weight loss. Two words that many of us really don't want to think or talk about. It's reality. For many of Americans, they are in need of a weight loss program of some kind. Some choose to exercise and diet and others try every new gadget on the market hoping it will be an easy fix. Well, the Anoretix pill is known to help burn fat and suppress the appetite. It has a 95% success rate and increases energy levels while speeding up the metabolism. You can read more about it online.


Jake has been creating and designing since he was in middle school. He loves to work on the computer and has made some beautiful pictures. Recently he had one of his creations printed and framed. He now has it displayed above his sofa in his living room. It turned out wonderful! You can check out some of his work at


Last weekend we moved our youngest son into his first home. I don't think we have worked that hard and long in a long time. It was well worth it. After three days we had everything cleaned, unpacked and put together. He enjoys coming home to his new condo.
