Hi everyone,
I hope that you all had a very Merry Christmas and a great beginning to a new year. :)
I want to thank those of you who have been able to stop by to say hi. I am sorry that I don't get to be here often. And that I don't get to stop by your blogs as much as I want to. I am still having to go to the library to get online. And they limit the time I can be on. :(
Kim, I hope you and your mom are doing ok. I know that things are stressful for you. I pray for you daily.
Diana, I hope Cjk is doing a lot better. Been praying lots for that little guy. :)
A sweet Kalea, I hope you and your parents are ok and that you get better soon. :) Praying for you all too.
Lisa, I hope all is well. I am praying for you and your hubby. Stay safe. And keep warm.
Update:  Mom has been in a nursing home for a few months. They just moved her to a room where she doesn't have much room to move in. She is not a happy camper. I am trying to figure out what to do to help.
My sister spent a week in the hospital and is now in a nursing home too. It is temporary til we can find a good adult family care home for her to go to. Her Parkinson's and other troubles are getting worse and she is falling alot.  She can't take it anymore. She needs to have 24/7 care.
I will be working this month on getting their apartment cleaned out. This will be a big thing. My sister will have to understand that she will have no place to go to if she doesn't like where she goes. It will be hard for her. Also mom needs to understand it too.
Hubby is having health problems too. And my body can't make up its mind if it wants to have a cold or not.  I was sick through Christmas and thought that I was over it.  Might be getting it again. lol This is nuts! :) Coughing and sneezing so hard that is rattles my brain. lol
Other then that everything is peachy. :) The weather is cold and rainy. We only had one day that we had a couple inches of snow and it was gone a quickly as it came. Below are the kind of winters that I like.

Well, I should go. Take care ladies...please take the time to let me know how you are doing. Hearing from you really does make my day. It makes me happy. :)
Take care (((HUGS)))


  1. Think of you often and so Happy to see a post. Prayers going up for you and your family. Take care

  2. hi janet!
    i'm new to your blog...getting back to my blog after a (long) hiatus due to facebook!! Blessings to you and your family in 2014!!

  3. May God bless you and your family, Janet.
    I do miss you! I hope your health improves despite the stress. Everything will seem easier in the Spring!

    I know you love snowy winters...so do I...but I'm glad we are not having what some parts of the USA are going through.
    Its tough about your Mom and sister's home ~ the end of an era and a new one to come. You can only emphasis the good points of being in a residential home, i.e that they will be looked after, not lonely etc
    Maybe a change of room for your Mom will eventually be possible.
    Remember to look after yourself, dear Janet.

  4. Hi Janet. We are doing OK, in fact much better than a week ago. My Mom is a tough old gal and is fighting hard to stick around. I hope your Mom and sister can adjust and accept the changes that are happening. Sometimes we just have to accept there are things we can't control. Hang in there.

  5. Hi Janet- Boy YOu have sure been through a lot in the last couple of years. My heart aches for you. It seems like you are always doing for everyone and giving up your self for others. I know that God will reward you someday but that doesn't make the day-to-day living any easier.

    Maybe your Mom could request a room change at some point down the road? It must be hard for your sister, too, and it is going to be difficult to go through her things and clean the apt. out. Does she have any kids that can help?

    I wish you some much deserved JOY this year and I hope that your situation turns around a bit. It would be nice for you to have a computer with internet at home.

    We are all well- our little CJK is doing really well-back to his cute little self and that baby Kalea is home and doing well.

    Hope you have a better New Year and take care of yourself, Janet!!!!! Love to you- Diana
