I've decided to start a blog. This is the first post. My family and I are about to embark on a new phase in life, so I thought now would be a good time to start my blog.
My day started with a blaring alarm clock, which I think should be thrown out the window. I think all alarm clocks should be destroyed and done away with. I realize that the world lives on a schedule and I don't, but nevertheless, I think there should be a better way to wake up in the morning than a loud, annoying noise jolting you awake from a deep sleep.
Then, I had to go get a MRI on my brain and neck, as I have debilitating headaches that the neurologist nor any other doctor can seem to figure out. This has been an ongoing problem and we just keep trying to find out what the problem could be...trying different medicines, exercises, doctors, etc. One day I will be pain free, I'm convinced...
Next came the fun! I took my granddaughter, Bethanie, out to lunch. We talked and laughed, and she told me about her interest in the Twilight books and movies, how she had just been to the "New Moon" movie with her Aunt Stephanie this past weekend. It sounds like I need to read the books so I can keep up with what she is talking about, plus it sounds like they are interesting! It's so wonderful to see what a beautiful young lady she is becoming.
The new phase of life we are about to enter is to move from League City, TX (a suburb south of Houston) to Navasota, TX. Navasota is about 90 miles NW of League City, 20 miles SE of the College Station/Bryan area, and about 25 miles due W of Conroe. It has appx 7,000 population compared to the ever-growing population of League City's 65,000. We can remember when you could get around in League City with no traffic back-ups to speak of, except maybe around the high school in the morning and afternoon. The "we" of us is me, Nan, my husband, Dale, and my father, Ed, who came to live with us after my mother passed away in June of 2007. Navasota is closer to Dale's work territory and since I don't work now, we are all ready for the slower pace.
Our biggest regret is leaving behind our children, grandchildren, my brother, sis-in-law, nephew & niece. The good thing is we'll have a house big enough to have plenty of that family come visit with us!!! They can come any time they want!! We will be moving Dec 15, and we have been packing steadily for about a month now. The time is starting to pass quickly now, so it will be upon us before we know it! Then Christmas will be right on top of that - barely time to put up the tree before it's time to take it down again. ;-> We don't care though; once it's all put away, we can slow down and really live.
Well, I've bent your ears enough for now, so until next time,
Keep it from your heart!
