Long time no Blog!

There's been a lot of changes, and a lot that has stayed the same.

Oliver and Dexter are here. No longer baby bumps.  Nash is here... Kenzie and Cj are married and Xander is here and he's 9 months old.  We have two foster grandkids we hope to make permanent. All the g-babies are a.dore.able.  super cute.

We see them at the family dinner almost weekly.  Unless we don't go, but we really try to make it a priority. Our family is SUPER important to us and and we kinda go through withdrawals... like now when it's been awhile. 

We are busy with the back yard, but it likely won't be finished before the snow. We have tore down the litlle 4x4 porches that led to nowhere off the back door of the garage and back of the dining room kitchen and are putting in porches with steps down to a patio... or rather Dennis has been doing the porches.  He's had some help on the patio from me, Kaylee, Tom, Kayleigh and Richard.  It's coming along pretty good.  He's had no help from the weather.  LOTS of rain this fall. 

We are going to sell our house! I've been back and forth on whether I can get on board with this, but I'm now mostly on board.  I just get sharp pains of regret.  It's my first house and we worked so hard on it.  And it's so pretty here.  But, it's just a thing and it's just a shell and really our home is where Dennis and I make it. I'm sure that wherever we land, it will feel like home eventually as well. *sigh*  There is so much work ahead to be able to get it on the market... someone wake me when it's over.  ;)

We've done some camping this year. YAY!!  We have an awesome camper that has been a lot of fun and we've made it out a couple of times.

My WOTY this year is "PRACTICE"  and that's been a good word to have. I love my WOTY's, all of them.  Practice was a chance to revisit the past WOTY's and give them a chance to develop themselves.  It's been really nice.  Ran a couple of 5Ks with my sister Amy this year... or to be more precise  Walked/Ran about four 5ks this year. They are getting easier.  We are now focused on cutting time and trying to run more and walk less.  We really like the Woman of Steel races.  We just finished a Zombie/Human Night of the Running Dead race. We sign up for races that sound fun and that will time us.  I've done well at maintaining my weight and my eating habits.  I have not allowed myself to become a recluse still connecting and still practicing with sparkle and focus.  It's time to start contemplating next year's WOTY.  I have some thoughts on this already.
