Rising up in the distance........three doors
                                                        choose one.....
                                          one very ornate
                                               one steel..kind of steampunk
                                                                     one made of pure gold!!!

Being a steampunk kind of girl, chose the appropriate that she thought heralded change.

Woohoo!  Was it change...highs and lows..she threw everything she had at it!
                                 All of her time...
                                    All of her money....
                                        All of some money she didn't have....
                                            All of money she could borrow......
     Her love..her friendships...her health....her location in time and space!!!
                                                            She totally transformed into...?
Well we are not sure...
             All of these things are still molding and chiseling her mind and soul....still incising their marks.

Note:   There is a rising star.....a ray of light for blood soaked weary eyes,,,,,


Two great grandsons...Angel holding new little brother Santos.....

Have a blessed and light filled day

And so it begins......

   opened the first door I saw.....

                       well of course I thought about it...for two years....seemed a wonderful thing to do
so with a great deal of enthusiasm....I flung them open!!!!
          heavier than I thought they would be.....


Boxes strewn upon the floor....dreams and dollars as before.....
                               promises broken............knuckles scrapped.....temperatures rising
                                                                no escape!!!!!!!!!

Out of boxes...bills rest for the some more!
                                     Water running through the cracks+++++

 Friends remembered on the page...stopping to share my cup of rage......
                                                          Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall
                                                                         Humpty Dumpty had a great fall!!!

And through it all.....there is the page...the wooden cross....and the possible stage!!!

More later!

Have a very gracious and blessed day

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!

mom,is emma and dad,is rami

baby  is angel

mom, angel and dad

new to be mommy

 Emma is my grand daughter and Rami is her husband and of course, new great grandson!!  So wonderful!

I am still not into a routine of writing yet but I am sure has been crazy and you all have been so wonderful making me feel welcomed.  Thanks so much.

Have a fabulous and blessed day,

Hugging you,
