We didn't have a problem asking our son, daughter and her boy friend to help us. We accept the fact that we're older, that this was exhausting and that we couldn't do things quite as quickly as we used to be able to.

to Jeff (from Charter) who just called me to say that "the install will take place between 8 and 10 AM Friday!!!
That means that I no longer have to imagine Brian Willliams at 6:30!
Just one more trivial things to add to my extensive list of things to be thankful for...:)
Still no cable or internet, but I had to share this...even though I have a limited data plan on my cell.
Ann and Tom have come by several times as they are interested in building on the lot up and across the road from us. She called earlier today asking if they could come by and take pictures to share with friends and family. You know I said "absolutely."
They arrived and began their picture taking after we exchanged hugs. My sister had told me I didn't have to allow them in because I was in the midst of baking pies and the kitchen was a mess. No big deal...I told her...I don't mind.
Come to find out...Ann is a Minister and Tom? Well, Tom is a Bishop.
There's a lesson here: Always be nice to people. Treat them like you would like to be treated. You never know who they work for!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
Yesterday afternoon, as I picked up branches around the perimeter of the yard and the dogs watched (yes...watched!!), we spotted in the distance,a red and black truck backing up the road.
The Prez was home! Back from VA with the last load, mostly stuff from the garage, he will go back down the beginning of December to hunt. Only a few things have to be removed and the rest will remain in the trailer until we build another garage!
Oh, one more thing...still no internet/TV...:(. The company is still trying to reinstate it's existing customers from the recent power outage before it does installs.
There's a lesson here...good things come to those who wait AND you sure get a lot done without it.
Posting this from my cell since we are still awaiting internet. As you can imagine, we've been busy unacking and me, well....I'm arranging, entertaining, and baking cookies!
Just a glimpse of more to come...
It will be time to go out with the kids soon...yes, the Prez brought them up last week and they seem to love their new home!!
P. S. Bev, if you read this...your Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins were a big hit with me, our builder and the Prez!!
