Sometimes something happens in your life that there are not enough words in the dictionary to describe how your feeling! This is how I felt when Christi and Paul surprised me Christmas Eve night announcing that they were now engaged to be married. Married my baby is getting married. Oh My how good that sounds even as I type it here now I am giddy with delight and excitement.
Paul came back into Christi's life a year ago after they reconnected since their High School Days. Paul is the man I have been praying that Christi would fall in love with and marry. He is everything I ask God for and even more.
I am also excited that I will not only be getting a new son in my life but two new grand babies. Paul is an amazing Father of two wonderful children Audrey and Bryan. Their bright beautiful children and they are already calling me Grandma Yellow Hair so how awesome is that.
I have never had a Son-In-Law in my life so I pray God will give me the wisdom to be the Mother-In-Law that Paul so deserves.
Now I have a gorgeous wedding to plan with Christi. She deserves the love and happiness that is flowing in her life right now. I needed this in my life right now and I am looking forward to 2014!
I have truly missed all of you. It has been a very long time in between post. My biggest excuse is my laptop not working well enough to do post. It is five years old and like myself it is feeling it's age.
So much to my regret I have to see about buying a new one. Not looking forward to having to learn a new toy or spending the money on one.
I have been keeping all of you in my prayers this winter because most of you are experiencing horrific freezing weather. How you manage to cope in below freezing temps is beyond me. I am upset with myself for having pity parties over being so cold in this old farm house. The other day it was 36 outside and 37 in my living room. I have finally convinced my boss to buy a new heating unit but so much cold air comes in the windows and doors that not sure that is the answer. Not sure when the new unit will be installed but hopefully the near future.
My utilities bill was close to $500.00 this past month so I turned the old units off and bought radiator heaters. Hopefully this will cut my bill by maybe $200.00. Trouble with these heaters their not strong enough to heat the front living area because of the high ceilings so I have been living in the back master bedroom which has made me stir crazy. How many days til Spring?
Here in Texas we are not use to 19 degrees which is was the low here the other night. It was below freezing for sixteen hours so I had major water problems out here on the North Forty. The house the cowboy use to live in the pipes froze in the ceiling and caused major damage to the house. Now the ceilings have fallen in so the house is destroyed.
At one time there were weddings and other events out here and there is a bathroom for men and women out here and those pipes burst. So what a mess I have been dealing with.
Hope all of you are well. This flu going around is really scary. I caught a cold Christmas night and milked it for all it's worth. Did not do anything for a whole week.
Stay warm and well. Don't let the winter days get you down. I am trying my best to not let it drive me completely over the wall. I have to say I am at the top now hanging on.
As always I can not tell you how much I appreciate your friendship and always coming by to check on me.
Maybe in the next few weeks I will have that new laptop and will be back to blogging full time.
Your friendships bring so much joy into my life I would hate to not be able to enjoy your blogs.
Soon I hope I can announce to you Christi and Paul's wedding day. Thanks for coming by and being my friend. Many Blessings to You for the Happiest of New Years.
