We sold our house last night!! It was on the lower end of our "range," but we are extremely happy and thankful. We agreed to paying for radon mitigation, if it's needed, but that's all they asked for. No closing costs!! ... Read more
My first trail half marathon.
Saturday, November 07, 2015      16 comments

I haven't run for about a month. Today I was "crazy" and ran a half marathon trail run. It's my first 1/2 since I did my 12 runs in 12 months last year. I completely forgot some of the important things. I didn't take anything to eat while runnin... Read more

For those of you that aren't spiritual, you may want to skip this one! However, I need to share. Here is a story of how I feel the Lord has worked in my life lately. Many of you know that my family has purchased a "new" house. It's actually... Read more

I have been pretty busy lately. Moving and setting up the "new" house has been a lot of work, but fun. We have downsized and are planning a big garage sale in the spring. I've been eating when I'm hungry and what I want. Last night I had a ... Read more

I haven't ran in a couple of weeks, but I am getting my workout in. We have completely moved into our "new" home. We started on Friday and and finished up on Sunday. I was so hopeful! While we were moving on Sunday we got a call that there... Read more

I haven't been "working out" per say. However, I have put in hours of cleaning and yard work so I am definitely getting enough exercise. I am three pounds below my goal weight so I know I'm still maintaining. I appreciate all the prayers, p... Read more
Signed papers
Friday, October 16, 2015      18 comments

Yesterday we signed papers on the "new" house. I felt really bad for my husband. I cried on the way there, made it through the signing, but cried on the way home. I am stressed about owning two houses. I am a little sad as our "old" house ... Read more

It's been a rough couple of days. I found out that a friend, that I had stuck by when no one else was, had lied and betrayed me. My daughter and I were there when she had her baby and have helped take care of the little girl. (I've posted about ... Read more

We have another open house tomorrow and we've had three showings. No offers, but I feel that we just aren't "there" yet for the family this house is meant for. The sellers of our house are getting bids from several companies so it looks like the... Read more
Postponed our closing.
Thursday, October 08, 2015      15 comments

We have postponed the closing on "our new house." There is a radon "issue" that needs to be fixed before we commit to this house. I really love this house, but if they can't fix it so that the mitigation system will actually take the radon out, ... Read more
Still no luck.

The second Open House was a bomb. We had one person, a neighbor, come look. We've dropped the price $5,000 and I hope this will get it sold. I've eaten well, until today. A baby shower and late breakfast, plus a late dinner made for some b... Read more
Second time around.

We have another Open House this weekend. I hope the second time around will be more successful. Last week the painters were here painting the house, so many of the windows and the French doors were covered. This week should be a better presentat... Read more

I lost my blog!

I wrote a blog yesterday, got my points and it promptly disappeared! I have no idea what happened. I had blogged about my husband getting under 250 lbs. He is at 249 lbs. Yes, I am proud of him, but after looking at his BMI of 32.something... Read more
I've been running!

I have been running 3 to 4 times a week with my "nonrunning" daughter. She decided that she wanted to get into shape. She did cross country in high school and hated it, but now she's running. When I run with her we run around 12 minute mil... Read more
