Hope You All Are Having A Wonderful Summer!!!

Hey there, A long time sure has passed since I last posted.
Hope everyone is doing well.
Things have been crazy here, We are in that time of life now where you just know changes are coming and nothing is ever going to be the same again.
My daughter-in-law has had one issue after another with her pregnancy, I pray each day that nothing else happens. As I mentioned she had the lung collapse issue, then her blood work came back not normal - they found out she started the pregnancy with twins and one didn't evolve (they call it a "vanishing twin syndrome". The poor gal just could not keep any food down, for months. So far all is going a bit better for her and her exams have been checking out okay so I pray all goes well from here on out she only has about 15 more weeks to go. They had an ultrasound done and the doctor thinks she is have a girl, they are going to call her Kylee Marie Davis! Isn't that a pretty name : ) I of course worry that maybe since the doctor didn't have a great view of the baby that maybe they should wait to paint the walls pink & begin buying little pink outfits and all but my daughter-in-law is excited and is buying away...... I don't care if it is a boy or a girl as long and it is healthy at this point!
As far as homeschooling we are done! Kelly is now finished with her schooling. To tell you the truth I am so relived it is all over. I LOVED every minute of homeschooling her but she just never flourished with it as I had hoped. She tells me she is very happy that she was homeschooled but I really carry a lot of guilt that I just did not do enough for her. She now has to decided on what she will do with this next chapter of her life. I worry that when she eventually goes on job interviews some employers require a diploma (I know Target requires one) and since she does not have one that may cause and issue about her getting hired. My son is a manager at our local Target and can possible get her in there, but not sure she wants to be a cashier - I think she would rather work with animals than people. Anyway, I told her if she would like to work on getting a GED I am here for her. She needs to make her decisions & commitments from here on out and I have to step back and let her go.....
Needless to say facing becoming a grandma & watching the next chapter in Kelly's life has just been a bit over whelming for me, Or heck it just might be pre-menopause who knows!
My husband & I were going on little get a ways which were making me very happy, it was really nice just knowing we do still enjoy being with each other. I posted most of those on my other blog:
Also, If any of you have a facebook pages (I follow a few of you already) I'd like to stay in touch with you there since I won't be posting much on this page any longer. My Facebook page is: If you don't and just want to e-mail me I'd love to hear from you all just contact me at

Take Care & God Bless!!

Baby Update

My daughter-in-law was discharged from the hospital yesterday - Yea!! : ) The doctors hated to have to keep doing x-rays on her to check on the progress of the removal of the tube on the lung (they were more worried about the x-rays than the morphine on the baby). She has an appointment today with the baby doctor that she picked, so hope to hear more tonight.
Thanks again for all of your prayers, My family really appreciated it!!
Until Next Time - God Bless!!

Prayers Please

On Tues. I found out I was going to be a Grandma! My son & his wife are expecting, she is 9 weeks and 3 days pregnant.... then on Friday she had chest & back pains they took her to the hospital and her lung has collapsed! They had to insert a chest tube to get the fluid out and get the lung inflated again! They are really worried that she may miscarry & of course they are giving her morphine for the pain which is no good for the baby either but they feel they have no other choice at this point.... I was in the room when they did the ultra sound and saw the baby's heart beat, they said it looked strong which was a good sign but I am scared to death of all the pain medication she it taking is going to do some damage to the baby.
So if you could keep my daughter-in-law & the baby in your prayers I would appreciate it.
Until Next Time - God Bless!!

Happy 19th Birthday Kelly

My baby turned 19 years old on Feb, 19th!!!!
For her birthday we took our family & her boyfriend Keith out bowling,
We had a nice time. I haven't bowled in years and it showed.... I was like throwing that ball down the lane it was terrible! After the third game Kelly was doing very well she even beat my son which put such a smile on her face : )
Sometimes I just look at Kelly and miss those days when she was a tiny little baby.
She has always been the kind of kid who marched to her own drum which I LOVE about her!
Now that we only have a few more months of school to go I really wish I had a time machine and I could set it back so we can have a "Do Over".
But I guess I just have to face facts and watch Kelly as she goes into the next chapter of her life : (
I also started a new blog called Nifty & Thrifty At 50 it's about my crazy midlife ramblings. If you get a chance take a peek - Thank You!
Until Next Time - God Bless!!

Just Horsing Around

Kelly & I took the horses out for a stroll. I got new aqua colored tack for Zip from my son & daughter-in-law for Christmas that I wanted to show off. Kelly got a new camera; so we can finally take some pictures to liven up this boring blog of mine : )
Two more days left of 2013!!!! This year just flew by...... I pray 2014 brings health & joy to all of you. We are going out for New Years Eve, the first time in YEARS!!!!!! We are taking the kids up to St. Augustine to Harry's for dinner. We won't be staying out till the New Year rings in but I sure as heck am going to enjoy myself anyway. I even plan on ordering a cosmopolitan cocktail with my dinner : ) I don't drink much but I'm splurging to celebrate 2014!!!!

This is a picture of me & my hubby the last time we went up to St. Augustine to see the Christmas lights on Dec. 9th, I'm addicted to that place - I LOVE it! If you ever get a chance visit that area do it : )
Until Next Time - God Bless!
