Jan's Life in the Valley:

Rain in the Valley

Well, it has been raining and raining, so of course, I have water in my basement and all around the house, but it usually just gets a little water in my basement but I seem to have a hole in my cement block wall, and it is really coming in, and then my sump pump quit, so went and got one, and my brother brought a pump over and now we are pumping out, and waiting for the plumber to put the new sump pump in. I really did not need this, but all is well, just my plans changed and costing me money but life happens. more later

I have typed this twice and lost it both times, so I am going try again. My goals this year is to get better in organizing my life. I need to redo my bookeeping methods, to slipshod. I also need to do more of things I enjoy, scrapbooking, making greeting cards, organize and put on the computer old family photos to preserve them. Keep my genealogy going. I have the time but I seem to just seem to procrastinate. I have decided I still need to de clutter my house, just not all the time and I need to bet more ruthless, and less sentimental about throwing or giving things away I need to rework how I get supplies for my house, my husband passed away two years ago and I still buy groceries like him and my kids still live here. So for the next two months I am living out of my cupboards and freezer with minimal suppies bought,(paper products, cleaning, flour, eggs, oil ect. I wish myself luck in this endeaver, I also need to stop feeling guilty if I am not working all the time, and it is all right if I read or make greeting cards or scrapbook. I have a new 3G kindle and want to start using this daily. More later

always loved...never forgotten...forever missed

Two years ago today, I lost my husband, it is not any easier today than it was then, he is always on my mind, just a little stronger feelings today. I will cope but somehow I thought it would be easier after this time, but it is not, so I will cope, and remember the good times, and there were bad times, but we got through it together.

gone too long

I know I have been gone to long, and to busy ( or lazy) but I feel a need to get going, get out of my rut. I am still flower gardening, but gave up vegetable gardening. too much work for one person, and then too much veggies for one person.
In three days, it will 2 years since I lost my husband, and I miss as much as I did. I am not used to being a single in a couple world. I have been invited to go to Nebraska for a couple days, but I will be the only single, and I am having a great deal of trouble making up my mind. If I do not go this year, I will definetly go next year, I have just opened my property tax bill, and wheww, I may have to stay home. I will difinitely be there next year.\
I am ready to be crafting again after so many years, I going to play with making greeting cards, and scrapbooking. and making little things for my house.
I will write more tomorrow, am going out to dinner with friends, single lady friends..
