Hi Everyone.

Well it has been such a long time since I posted.  Some of you know that I retired last July and basically that was out of medical necessity.  I was having a lot of physical issues and my job was contributing to them.  I couldn't get disability so I had to retire early.  This caused some financial difficulties for us but we are getting by.  I was taking a lot of medication and pain pills without results so I decided to try acupuncture because this worked for me in the past.  It was pretty expensive but I felt if it gave me relief, it would be worth the money.  Thankfully, I did get very good results.  I am feeling much better with fewer limitations.  I am still getting treatments and hopefully will get better and better with each treatment.

During this time, we also had some family problems and which brought on more stress contributing to my  physical condition but life has a way of adding problems and not always choosing the correct timeframe.

I am much better now and am able to get back to a more productive life but I do have to be careful with what I do.  I always push myself too much and then suffer.  I have a great husband who helps so much around the house that I don't have to worry about that.  There were days when all I could do was just sit in a chair and watch TV all day long and not do a thing.  Talk about boring.  When you are an active person, this is torture but I had no choice.  Some days I couldn't even turn my neck from side to side so I had to give in to my limitations.

I'm probably not going to be doing much on the way of primitives with my blog any longer because financially I won't be purchasing new things and my decorating is pretty much confined to what I have on hand now.  I would like suggestions though if you would like me to continue with the blog but maybe talk more about homekeeping, recipes, organizational tips, decluttering, cleaning tips things like that.  If I don't get much of a response, I'll probably just close my blog at least for now.  I'm thinking of other things I can do.  I know there are so many people who want to learn and we all have so much to give so if anyone feels they have suggestions, let me know.  I know I don't have many followers, so this blog may not even be read but I'll give it a few weeks and then if  nothing shows up, I'll close it.

I just want to thank all of you for your concern and e-mails asking me where I've been.  It was so thoughtful of you and much appreciated.

On a final note and a happy one, yesterday Father's Day we found out that our new grandbaby will be a girl. She will arrive around October 26.  We are thrilled beyond words and can't wait for her birth.  Everything is perfect and we saw all her toes and fingers, arms and legs on the sonogram pictures.  A little angel for sure.

Until next time, may all  your dreams be happy ones and your days be filled with joy.

  1. Glad to see you are getting better. We went through the same adjustment, and still are. Keep your chin up. I've found so many ways to economize and have been able to keep a positive attitude. Our grandbaby-to-be (first) is a girl as well! She's due in a week!



I appreciate you stopping by. I personally read all comments and thank you for taking the time to leave them.
