lost ....

and kind of found!
computers.... aren't they loads of fun?
I'm using a re purposed computer! Thought I was getting a good deal...but...I have no way to download photos, took a step back in time with word, and the anti-virus, that's a whole 'nother ball game.
I've been keeping up on reading blogs that I follow, but not so good on my own!
Life's been a WhIrL wInD lately.
I got a part time time job working at a local store 'The Scrapbook Page' and loving it! I still have my antique booth, however, moved back to a smaller booth and doing very well. And I still have a handful of pooches that I groom.
With Thanksgiving right around the corner,
I guess I'm thinking about all the thanks that I have & feeling like I need to share...I'm thankful for my best friend, my husband! He has kept me grounded lately. I'm thankful for having the two best step children that a woman can have. I love these two young adults more than I could have ever imagined. I have a roof over my head, food on my table & laughter in my heart.
I've also experienced something pretty cool...my neighbors adopted a couple of adorable sisters (3 & 4 years old) from Russia a few months ago. The other day I came home from work the same time they did, not having the best of days, until...I hear 'Traci, Traci...Hi.' (they don't say my name quite correct) I waved & shouted hi back, then I heard...'have a good evening!' This just warmed my heart! Not having children of my own...I'm finding out that I'm more of a softy than I thought. (oh great!)
Anywho, overall, things are good & I'm really not lost,
just took a looonnggg break from blogging.
Who knows, maybe,
just maybe,
Santa will bring me a new computer for Christmas.

an apology....

I owe an apology to anyone that reads this....
my last few posts have been pretty blah & I'm sorry for that!
Even though I have a few good things in the works.
I'm also a little overwhelmed by the bad.
This blog seems to be an easy place for me to release some of my feelings.
My mother's been ill again &
I found out this evening that my step-mother has breast cancer.
Plus, I've had a dull headache for the past 5 days.
However, I'm going to try & remain positive, therefore,
from this point on....
I will try to leave you with better posts.
God bless family & friends!

bad blogger blues

Hi all....boy-oh-boy, I've been a really bad blogger lately!
I guess I enjoy reading rather than writing.
Things have been a little busy around here...the worse part...this morning,
I said goodbye to my old cat! That's two pets in a couple months.
Making the decision vs dying unexpected...hard either way.
I've been struggling with making this decision for weeks. However, yesterday I could just tell...he starting limping & really having a difficult time getting around. When I didn't wake to him walking around the house this morning meowing, I knew in my heart it was the right thing to let him make the trip over the Rainbow Bridge! Rest peacefully little kitty!
On a brighter note...my cards having been wonderfully, along with my altered journals and such. Needless to say, I've been stamping & gluing, trying to get ahead of my sales.
Well, I've got lots to do....have a beautiful day!
