BUSY BUSY BUSY

        AH....long time no hear from....but I am still around and kicking. Life has gotten the better of me since the last time I was able to journal. My mind has really been scattered with my parents moving...which is in one week. I am still devastated but I cannot blame them getting a duplex rent free. I would too if I had the opportunity. I just worry because I know my brother and sister will not keep tabs on my parents...to be honest I do not think they will even visit them that often and my parents will only be about 15 minutes from each of them. My mom has already told me that she feels lonely because there is nothing down there for people their age...which is true...it is a town of young couples raising their children...not retired peeps. My heart really goes out to my mom. All my dad talks about is having an extra bedroom for my daughter to visit them on long weekends and summers. My daughter loves her grandparents but she does not feel comfortable with most in my family...she finds them very uppity and not her style. We have been to my parents house back and forth for the packing and getting rid of stuff and my parents giving us alot of stuff. I do appreciate it but I would rather have my parents stay here. (sigh) Also at the same time we are still painting and such around our own home...it has been slow but so far we are happy with what is done...we are moving my puter room...I have a dinning room that we do not use as a dinning room...I am just not a dinning room person...so we are going to make that our puter room and craft room...it should be really nice when we get done...of course I will take pictures to share. My daughter's bathroom is coming along....it is duckie...how cute...still have some stenciling left to do...when it is done again I will take some pics to share. Unfortunately in between all of that...I came down with a sinus infection and my daughter had some sort of stomach virus...so we had to stop production for a while. Now of course I am sure you all have heard of the hurricanes that are affecting the west side of florida...so far (thank God) nothing has hit us directly...but we have had SO MUCH RAIN...we need a canoe at this point to get around our yard and sometimes down the road. When I first moved to florida- I never really heard of hurricanes hitting this state...then all of a sudden I am constantly face to face with it. The only good thing this year is we are prepared with a generator...so at least we can stay at our house without having to depend on anyone. Well I have gone to the psychiatrist again...once a month as usual and he has decided that now is the time for therapy..go figure....so I start seeing a therapist next month...this should be interesting. Well I think that about does it for the hot topics going on around here...I do hope you all are doing well...I have been around to all my regular journals but just have not had the time to leave comments or anything...but I will....promise. You all take care and remember to HUG someone you LOVE!!!! PEACE!!!

Your parents may be surprised! Sometimes moving to a town with mostly younger people will be just the tonic they need!
