Going Away Party

For those of you who may not know this, Jeff's mom passed away on March 17th. She was creamated soon after.This weekend there is a memorial for her. It's being called a "going away party". I'm not sure how it will go, but it will be a first for me and Jeff. I guess it's a nontraditional&unconventional way to have a memorial.All I know is that they will place her ashes either next to or with her husband,who passed away a year before me and Jeff were married. Then afterward they are meeting at a park, across from the cemetary, then I guess people will tell some of thier memories of her. Jeff's mom didn't have life insurance,and everyone is either not working or having a rough time financially so this is the way it's going to be done. Sowe'll see how it goes.
We will be spending Saturday night at Kimi's house,and she will be coming to St.George with her family,and they will be spending the night at our house. That way she can keep take care of our dog's for us, and we can take care of her cat's for her. We will take our time coming home from S.L.C.,we will stop off in Elsinore to see Nadine, I'm looking forward to that, cause it's been quite a while since we've seen her. She invited us to have dinner with her and Coy, it will be fun to chat with them. We should be home sometime Sunday night.
I hope every one has a super weekend!!

Forget the last blog

The deal fell through, The man who said he would buy it, had a call from a daughter in Denver,who needs thier help.He said that someone now has cancer,and they are needed there. He felt bad that he had to back out. We hope that everything goes good for him and his family. Does anyone want to buy a trailer?

Good News

Today,we sold our trailer. That means we can make the Feb. and Mar. mortgage payments that we are behind on,and that means we can keep our home. I was beginning to think we would have to move in our trailer.We will miss it when we go camping,but, we still have our tent, I love camping we will still go,we just won't be as spoiled!
The other good thing is we can go to Boise for little Ivy's blessing on Easter. We haven't ever seen Scott and Rochelles house yet, so it will be a fun trip. Plus we can get our fridge fixed,it hasn't worked right for a couple of weeks. There's light at the end of the tunnel.
On another note I should have my new teeth soon,my Pat paid for me to get my teeth, they wouldn't make them till they had the money,so thanks to Pat,maybe by next week I will have teeth again.
I have had alot of fun with Facebook.It's kind of addicting. I never thought I would enjoy having a computer so much.
I guess that's it for this week,Keep Smiling!

Sad and Glad at the same time.

Tonight at around 8:00 P.M. Jeffs mom passed away. She hasn't been well for a long time, so maybe it's a blessing. We haven't seen her much,for that I feel bad. Jeff says she's in a better place, and she is having a family reunion. She is going to be creamated, and I think Jeffs family is planning a memorial service for her sometime,not this weekend ,but the one after this.Our Daughters Brit and Kimi went to see her last night, so they got to say goodbye to her.We are glad they got to be with her.We had planned to go to Salt Lake tomorrow to say goodbye, and Jeff was going to give her a blessing, but, she went before we could get there. That's what happens when you prograstinate, we should have tried to go earlier. We just haven't had the funds to go, now it's to late.
She was a sweet lady, she got her endowments the same day that me and Jeff got ours.She had a fun laugh,she enjoyed watching t.v. and doing the t.v. guide crossword puzzels. There was a time while we lived in Midvale,that mom,laura,and Denise would come over on Saturdays and do thier wash, and we would visit with them.Mom loved to tell us stories about things her and her husband used to do. Jeffs dad passed away before we were married, so that's how we knew him was by the stories we heard from Jeff's family.
We are happy she has gone home to be with her family, and we know she is having a great time seeing all her loved ones again. We love you, and we'll see you when it's our turn.

Good times

Today and the rest of this week is going to be great.The weather is going to be fantastic.And the boys I watch love to play outside, and I love to be outside,so this will make my week easy.
We've been working out in the yard, we mowed our grass, we are now watering the grass and flowers. Our lilac bushes are getting ready to pop,and they are full of blossoms. I can hardly wait, I love the smell of lilacs. We can go and take our dogs for walks and not have to wear jackets, I'm so happy. Awesome weather helps you feel good!!
My Kimi set me up on face book. This is such a fun site' so much better than My Space. I've had so much fun, I really enjoy writing on peoples wall, it's so cool!!
Yesterday I got to go clean this sweet little old mans house, He's like 90 years old. He's such a nice guy. He had us dust his walls, he took down all the pictures on his walls, then he had us wash his base boards, and clean his kitchen cabinets. He had moved all his furniture to the middle of the room, so we could vacume where his furniture used to be. We washed his windows and blinds,scoured his tub, everything was deep cleaned. When we were done we helped him hang his pictures back up on the walls, and move the furniture back.
His house was so clean, and it wasn't bad to clean in the first place. He asked us to come back in 3 months and do it all again. I don't know how often any body does this kind of cleaning, but I don't think I do it as much as he does.
I read Chelle's blog about some of her favorite things. I'm thinking what are my favorite things.Things this means other than the wonderful husband and family, so things would be my home, we waited till we were in our 50's before we bought our first home. Next would be our cars, that transport us when we need to go some where. I love having my collections all around us. I love having a dishwasher, I hate doing dishes, so this makes my life easier,even though it is loud, we turn it on when we go to bed and let the noice lull us to sleep. And I enjoy this computer that Pat gave us.
So this is all for this blog. Keep smiling!

Time is scooting by.

It's been a week since I wrote my last blog, so I decided it's time to do another one.My new dog Scooter is adjusting really well. He's figured out how to use the doggie door,he got fixed last Monday,and he recovered from that well. He follows me every where I go, when I sit on a chair if he isn't on my lap then he's at my feet resting his head right on my feet. He loves to go for walks, and he loves to tease Dolly.He chases the little boys I watch,he loves to play with them, and he eats nonstop. I love him, he's agood dog.
Jeff has had a week of fixing things, he fixed the pressure reducing valve on the water heater,he had no choice we woke up to a flooded laundry room., then we decided to turn on the water outside so we could water the lawn and turn our water fountain back on. Well he ended up digging up around where we turn the sprinklers on and of,cause it wasn't working right,he wasn't happy. Then our fridge is acting wierd, so he's been trying to figure out what's wrong with it. We are hoping it keeps working till we can afford to have someone come and fix it.
Tonight is the time change and we lose that hour,and it always takes my brain and body a while to adjust, and I'm not looking forward to it. We have already changed all our clocks to the new time.We start church at 9a.m.,so it's going to feel like 8a.m., oh well that's life.
I get to go get the impressions done for my new teeth on Friday, I can hardly wait. It will be so nice to be able to talk to people again.
Kimi set me up on My face page, so it's something new I can look at on the computer. We will see if I can figure it out.I'm not to good at this kind of stuff.
I hope every one is doing well, and just so you crafty people know, I'm not talented enough to do that pay it forward thing, plus I don't have the funds to do that sort of thing now, but I know all you people that are doing it are super people. Any way take care, and have a super week. Bye for now.
