Where Has This Year Gone?

Can you believe we are literally one month away from the new year? I’m not sure where the time has gone.  It seems like only last month, I was watching 4th of July fireworks…  And the past couple of days?  Decorating for Christmas.  I think the only thing left to do on the inside is to trim the banister with garland.  (Sigh of relief)

A lot has been going on the last couple of months.  We’ve been remodeling our home and it has thrown my whole life out of wack!  Writing on my WIP has come to a stop and I haven’t had a lot of time to stop by and visit your blogs.  The struggle has been real…

On the bright side:


MP GradLast week, we drove to Fort Lost in the Woods, Misery (Fort Leonard Wood, MO) to pick up our youngest son.  He graduated from MP school and is now a NC National Guard Reservist.  After driving 2,300 miles in three days – all I can say is -I’m not as young as I once was!  That trip kicked my butt.

So – that’s what been going on in my life.

How’s things been with you?
