And it is snowing again here!! The roads were fine yesterday, let's just hope they will be ok to get up there and the snow will STOP!!!
Tony was home yesterday but today he had to go to work. We got him going early and he was at work at 7 so he can come home early so we can leave. I am wearing my wedding dress as it is so cute and I love it!! It is a halter so I have to find something for my shoulders.........I have a ton of fabric maybe I can whip up a quick shawl............I'll post some dinner/dance pics next week of how handsome my sweet Tony is going to be...............;)
You all stay toasty warm and safe.

This cool picture is of the hoop at the boy's house. We have Scott with us now as the boy's don't have power at their house. Their mother is staying with friends, THANK GOD!! We came close to having her over here too, now wouldn't that have been delightful, NOT!! She called Tony 4-5 times yesterday all upset because the boys were at friends homes and she was there alone without power. She was "struggling", and while she was "struggling" I was having a great time with her ex!! ............I know, I am evil, lol!
This am my friend from Cinci called me and needs help getting her son from Ft. Knox at the base. They have no power out there and have told the guys to go home for 2 weeks if they can get there. She is so excited to be able to go get him, except that she needs help getting there. So with Tony home today I volunteered him to get her to him with the Explorer, that is if she can get to us. I think the roads are clear on the highway so she should get here easily.
You all have a safe and warm day today!

I was worried about the power going out and we were sure expecting it but so far so good. I made dinner today at about 11 am because I wanted to be sure we had something to eat for dinner.
Tony and I watched October Sky this afternoon, a wonderful feel good movie that is a true story. Just having a great lazy day with my sweet hubby, something we needed after all the kid turmoil lately.
Peace to you all!

Hi everyone! I am finally back home for good. Yesterday morning I went back to the condo and spent the day there watching Jake as he was sick again. He is much better today and actually was better by 5 when Amy got home. Derek is good too, he was released from the St. Luke West hosp yesterday evening. We told the nurse that I had to get back home due to the upcoming snow and that Christy can't drive in snow so they let him go last night instead of waiting for the morning. His mood was optomistic although not as good as the day before. He started on an anti-depressant and did see the Doc. yesterday. He has instructions to contact the Crisis center for counseling and to got to AA everyday and take his medicine. Hopefully the new therapy will test him for bi-polar disorder, something he has been needing for some time. I am really hoping the medication will help him as well.
Warren has been staying at his Mother's even though she has said she doesn't want him there. He came over last night fairly late, after we were already ready for bed. He wanted the older Explorer to drive in the snow and Tony told him NO. He also told him to call before he comes over. He was upset because his Dad didn't have gas in this vehicle and one of the tires was low. Goodness, we don't use this vehicle right now, so why would it be in perfect condition and full of fuel. This kid is so rude it is quite amazing he hasn't got his clock cleaned by someone by now. Perhaps he just saves this behavior for his family, certainly he can't act like this for the rest of the world. Life will catch up with him and he will have to learn how to behave eventually.
On a happier note Tony and I are planning a weekend away. We are going to one of the state parks for an Eagle observing weekend program. It is really neat and we are very excited. Tony is a Falconer and he loves anything to do with birds of prey. This program will take us out in the lake to an island that has Eagles nesting. A wildlife guide will show us the nesting areas and educate us about them. The State Resort Parks in KY are really nice and very affordable. I think this weekend is the one after the valentines weekend.
You all have a great day!!
Big hugs and love,

Warren really pulled a goodie yesterday, every week it is something else obnoxious that he tries. He really dislikes me being here. Yesterday I discovered that my little trampoline that was on the back porch was all muddy and yucky. He and his friends had taken it out on the lawn and basiclly trashed it with mud from their shoes. This is my only form of exercise and it is usually inside but I placed it out there to get ready for the birthday party. That was the last straw for me, so far this week it was a overflowed toilet that he left for me and every morning a messy kitchen. He is going to go live with his Mother, we tried to talk to him for an hour and he was totally uncooperative. He threatened to slash my trampoline and has made threats in the past to Tony. I told Tony it is time to have him live elsewhere, I don't need threats made to me or to our possessions just because he doesn't like our house rules.
This is why my body is acting up so much, the stress from this child is too much. His Mother has previously not allowed him to live there but now there is no choice. He MUST live elsewhere!!
You all have a great day and stay warm. I am going to have lunch today with my adorable hubby, that will make me feel better.

Today I had an apt with my new Electrologist gal Abbie, she was absolutely awesome. My gosh she was so good and skilled at her job. I have a completely hair free top lip and my little hairs on my chin are gone. She charges 1/2 the price of the lady I last saw in Cinci too, can't beat that! And it was almost completely painless.........well I do have extensive nerve damage so I might not have felt it anyway, lol!
I am off to take another nap, just not having enough energy today to even look for a picture to post for you all.
Have a great day everyone, big hugs,

Yesterday was our 1 month anniversary! I am the luckiest newly married person I know, Tony is the second luckiest! God has given us an awesomely wonderful blessing!
Our birthday dinner for Scott went very well yesterday. Tony's Mother was very happy with the meal and seeing Scott and Warren. They all liked the pork and the birthday cake she brought was really wonderful, very chocolatey. During dinner Scott got a call from a Modeling agency, he had been spotted at the mall by someone from the agency that had a booth in a kiosk in the mall. They want him to come in and talk to them. He is a gorgeous young man, very polite and handsome both. He would be a great model, just doesn't have a lot of time with his sports and school.
I am going to do a few bills today and make a call on a Medicare issue and then just rest. I might go to the movies by myself, I love to do that, my treat to myself. I want to see the movie with Brad Pitt...........Benjamin something is the name.
You all keep warm and have a great restful day. 14 degress here again today, YUCK!

This is an awesome pic of us in the kitchen of the farm house on our honeymoon. This wine glass was cool that it ended up in the picture, we didn't plan it that way. We had a glass of wine and a slice of wedding cake for breakfast every morning!! We had a lot of wine left over from the wedding and we love red wine, not big drinkers but we sure enjoyed that one glass in the mornings, toasting our new life and future together.
Wind chill of -13 this am here. I have to go out later to meet Tony for lunch and to mail the bills. I made a big casserole dish of chicken enchiladas yesterday for dinner from my Amish cookbook, we only had Warren for dinner so we can eat that again tonight. I bought several neat Amish things on our honeymoon, we found some great little Amish stores in our travels. One thing I bought was an Amish cookbook, I have made several things from it and they are all very delicious.
We pick up Jake from Amy tomorrow in Carrollton and we can't wait. That is our 1/2 way point from the condo to Louisville. He has so much fun here, he loves the 4 dogs and can throw the tennis balls for hours for them, giggling like crazy at their chasing and scrambling. It'll be too cold to play outside so we will take him to the Y to swim, he should like that. Our friend Joan and her boyfriend Mark from the 5000 Club homeless dinners will be in town on Sat. as well and we are planning to meet with them for dinner somewhere.
You all stay cozy warm and if I don't post again before Monday have a great weekend.

Here is a picture I took the other day of my antique dresser all decked out with my paintings. The roses are some from the 24 that my SIL gave Tony and me for our wedding gift. They still look great, they must be the longest living roses ever!
Today Tony is taking 1/2 day off and we are going up to Cinci to do the homeless dinner. We have to buy our tickets for the Snowball fundraiser dinner while we are there. Another chance to get dressed up and drag Tony out on the dance floor. I have been doing the homeless dinner every week for the past year and 1/2 and I really miss all the volunteers and the people we serve dinner to as well.
Pray for good driving conditions for us! You all have a great day and stay warm.

Amy sent me this pic of Jake last night by text message after his bath, how cute is this??? He really loves his bath time.
I am very happy it is Friday, I have had lots to do this week but I have really missed Tony with him being back at work. I got super spoiled with him being on vacation for the last 2 weeks. I have a lunch date with him today at noon, he wants us to make this a Friday thing. Sounds good to me, just as long as I don't get lost getting there again.
They built this city on a spoke road system, all the roads go in a circle and many of them end up converging together at some point nearer to the river, makes me CRAZY and gets me lost! My girlfriend Patty got us a Tom Tom for a wedding/Christmas present and it has saved me several times already.
My body has really been misbehaving this past week with all of this cold weather. The nerve pain is firing all over and the squeezing around the chest is at an all time high. Really gets me down and makes me wonder when I am ever going to feel consistently better. Seems like any little thing will trip off the squeezing anymore, coffee, too much sugar, breathing, walking too much and on and on...........But then I think of how much better I am than I was and I give myself a little scolding for being down on myself.......
Making chili today for dinner so I'd best get to the store and get it going. I made some really yummy bread sticks yesterday, the fat chewy kind. I melted garlic butter on them as they baked and they were VERY good if I do say so, ha!
Take care y'all, if I don't post this weekend have a great one and STAY WARM!!

Have I mentioned that I miss this lil guy? He is such a sweetheart and such a good little almost 3 yr. old. We will have him next weekend down here from Sat. thru Mon. while Amy goes with some friends to a show put on by a comic. He really likes coming here and hanging with us and the doggies. He has been good about sleeping in the guest room by himself and will even lay down for a nap in there just like at home.
I'd best find something meaningful to do with myself, the Christmas decor could come down I guess! lol!

Tony had two doggies, Molly and Lilly, both Jack Russell terriers and I had Gizzy and Rocky. Gizzy is my Shiz Tzu pup and Rocky is my overgrown chihuahua that is getting grumpier as each day passes. The four of them have great fun together getting into all kinds of mischief. Makes for an exciting day for me and gives me some companionship.
This new life of mine is rewarding in many ways but can also have lonely moments. I miss little Jake coming in each morning with his blanket and piling into bed with me and Amy's very crabby disposition as she looks for him to dress him for the day and finds him hiding under my covers. :) Well I don't miss that crabby disposition but you get the jest of it.
I am off to get some work done around here................
