It has been forever since I have been able to put some time into writing a blog entry.

There has been loads that has been going on. I will try and mention the most important things, then maybe over the course of the next few days fill in some of the mundane things.

When last I wrote I mentioned about having to fix our truck. We did finally get it up and running after almost 3 weeks. The only thing is it is still not right. Apparently there is a sensor that needs replacing (this is the one that makes it so it starts right up, rather than hesitate a little).

Several months ago I spoke of having our friends horses here with no payment and them basically taking advantage of s. Well, hallelujah, Isis (the chestnut Arabian) has found a new lease on life elsewhere. Literally, she is being leased out (we were not told that if the lease is up where the horse will go to). But we are down to 4 horses here. Since Isis has been gone, it has gotten worse in getting the owner to have feed here. Every week we have covered the feed for 3-4 days, then when they bring a bale, we let them know that they owe us almost the whole bale they drop off… then we go for another week before they show up with more. If not for the owners boyfriend being our dear loyal friend, we would have walked the horse back to the owners property and tied it to one of their fence posts. We are waiting for the mysterious person from Wyoming to show up and whisk Prince away in the night and all will be fine in the Rock Barn…. LOL!

The quad that hubby got in April is already on Craigslist for sale. It is apparently just too fast for what we need it for which is trails. It is more a dunes kinda machine. So, we are hoping for a buyer soon!! Anyone need a FAST AND FURIOUS quad???

In April we went to Calif to go to my daughters baby shower. She was expecting a beautiful baby granddaughter for me! And of course, she has had that sweet little dall since then. Brookelynn was born on June 15th after about 9 hours labor and weighed in at a whooping 9 lbs 15 oz. She is so beautiful! As you can see for yourself………….

Here are some of the many pictures we have of her.

Brookelynn, 3 wks...


Brookelyn and TRuck,,,
5 wks


Brooke at 8 wks..... she is such a cutie (No, I am not prejudice!!! LOL)

Brookelynn was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at 6 weeks. This was a devastating blow for our family. I read everything I could on it. My daughter and I cried for days. We have now gotten to a point where we understand that this is a disease that is having more and more research done and are coming up with many new drugs that make the mortality rate older and older. Brookelynn was put on special enzymes and vitamins and medication to help with her digestive tract. She is to take a sweat test soon that will indicate just how bad she has the disease. Her last Cystic Fibrosis check up proved wonderful. They have taken her off all enzymes, and medications because she is having no problems with her digestion. She is now 2 months old and almost 15 and a half lbs already. We are blessed with her!!

A few months back, when Boo, son #4, came to visit, he got me into doing web pages and HTML. Since then I have been engulfed in making web pages … just fun music pages. I have spent so much time doing this, I do almost nothing else. I like working in my paint program to come up with images to use on my web pages. I will post the images here as I complete them just for the heck of it.

This Friday night hubby, a buddy of hubby’s from his work, me and TRuck, are going to the Cardinals Football Game (pre season) they are playing the Green Bay Packers who is my hubby’s favorite team. Whish used to be my son TRuck’s fav team also because of Brett Favre. I am looking forward to see the stadium; I think it is going to be great. Our seats are not too far off the field level near the 20 yard line of the Packers side. I will grab some pics to share for sure.

Then next week we are going to Calif to see my precious grandbaby! We only get to be there for 6 days, but I hope to spend every second I can with that special baby… or and with my own kids.. LOL

OH, oh… I still have pics from when we went on that cruise back in Feb.. Oh my Goodness!! I will post about that in the next few days.

I have so many blogs to get back to reading. I usually try to go back a few months and read what I missed, but this time, I am sorry I am not going to be able to go back that far. I miss all my fav blogs and some new ones that I have book marked to start reading. There is not enough time in my day to do all the things I want to do let alone the things I should do and don’t get done.

Take care all… i’ll be baaaackkkk!
