Here we are again....a second!!  Wow!  I am coming to you, live from Homewood Suites in
Albuquerque, NM.

We finally sold our house in the mountains and here we are....homeless.  I have to say it is a strange feeling.  No home to look forward too..that familiar bed....those smells...the creak in the floor....very odd for sure.

All of our personal possessions are at Johnson's Moving and Storage in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  And they will remain there until we close on our new home in Las Cruces, New Mexico. That is really weird too.  We hope to close around September 15th.

I will share pics of the, hopefully, new place soon.  We plan in traveling to Las Cruces around August 31st.  Staying at the El Canto and I personally will indulge in several martinis and margaritas.  Ha!
Our bartender, Saavy, takes good care of us and he makes one means Mojito!!

We will stay there until the papers are signed.  It can't come soon enough!!!  

Dr. John is hard at work everyday...he has hardly missed a beat since all of this started back in March of this year.  That's because I am awesome and able to handle this move by myself pretty much.  Just kidding!!!  We worked our asses granite counter tops...and sink....walls painted. Whew!!  Not to mention the landscaping....etc., etc., etc.

Then the nightmares began....we were set to close on August 15th...and then our septic failed inspection and we needed to replace the whole system...$4200.00.  Of course, the roof needed maintenance to the tune of $1400.00...the freezer began to act up....$80.00; the hot tub motor went out...$180.00...the kitchen sink faucet began to leak....$250.00.  Note*** This was the new faucet!!
We were bleeding much for large profit on our house sale.  At least we did have the money coming from the sale so that was good.  Whew!!

I know...sorry...I am!  So, everything was coming against our closing on August 15th.  Talk about nerve wracking...!!! But close we did; thanks to the help of Pete at ReMax and Rio
Grande Septic and Ross Plumbing and many, many more!  A special thanks to Alice and Butch and Cheri and my son, Lee Sr., and grandkids Lee jr., and Georgia and Mike and Kathy too!!!

And now, here we are, Homewood our one bedroom suite.  It is large bedroom, big bath, full kitchen and living room.. They offer a full breakfast seven days a week and dinner, Monday through Thursday.  Fabulous!!  Laundry and maid service daily...what more can one ask for?

Have I told you I am a great grandma??  Ha!

post signatureRANDOM MONTHLY!!!!
It has been a long time since my last post....long, long time!!  Sorry about that; I have really missed all of you very much!
A blast from the past....
I have been very ill and along with the slowly healing broken has just been too hard to post.  I have been diagnosed with COPD, along with asthma and Congestive Heart Failure!!  Sigh!
This is making my quality of life totally sucky!
In October, Dr. John and I spent two glorious weeks in Key West!!  Fun times and lots of rest and sun for both of us.
I see my picture problems continue!!  Sheesh!
I have been able to spend a lot more time with family lately...what a blessing!  And guess what?!  My granddaughter, Emma. is expecting in May!!  woot!  I am going to be a Great Granny!  Love it and love her.  All is going well with her and baby!
As I struggle here, I won't be posting again until mid-January!  Soooooo, Merry Christmas and the very Happiest of  New Years to you all!
Hugs and blessings!
May you have a blessed and wonderful Holiday
Hugging you

Random Tuesday ~ Wow! Has it been that long?


It has been so long since I have shared a single post...let alone a Random!!  Wow!  Where do I begin?

Let's see....August came and went so quickly...grandkids were still populating our house and keeping me busy night and day!!

September, the beginning of fall and the New Mexico State Fair....I took Emma, 20  years old, and Cassie, 21 years old.  Emma had never been to the State Fair and was so excited to go.  She wanted to "ride the rides"!


As part of the experience, Emma got her face painted....HA!  I think the artist got carried away...all down her chest...can we say PERVERT!!!  Ewww!  But it was funny.

Dr. John went to Illinois and hung out with his family.  Brother Bob, Mom, who is 94 and still riding her bike every day, and his niece, Jennifer.  Jennifer took Dr. John to see the St. Louis Cardinals...he loved it!!

The brother, Bob and Jennifer took him out for a wild game of pool.....oh dear....Jennifer was totally amused by Dr. John's attempts.  Ha!!

I will tell you what...blogger is totally driving me won't let me re-size my photos...I have to know some code to do it manually!!!  And then it gets them wrong too!!  Help!!  I need something else here.....ack!!!

Fire surrounded our state this are some pics of the fire in the clouds!!

Inquiring minds want to know...yes they finally figured out that my right wrist was broken!!  Sheesh!  I told them I was in pain...guess they thought I was a whiner!!  SOB's  Anywho...typing is difficult and I am currently doing physical therapy.  I lost my primary doctor...she I have been searching.  Yikes! Choices are slim...and I have yet to be impressed!
I will close for now...pain rulz!!!!!  Stop by Stacy's and check out the journey's of other Randomizers!!!  See Stacy Uncorked to join in too......lots of fun!!

Have a magical and a pain-free day!!
