Wow, I have been gone for a while. Not sure why, well yes I do. In order to blog I have to think when I think inevitably my thoughts go to Jessika. The first anniversary hit me harder than I thought and I am just recovered from it. Oh, the pain is still there, but I am adjusting to it somewhat.
I have kept myself very very busy. I organized the garage so the guys could finish the interior. I need the heat and electric going before Thanksgiving because I am having dinner this year (I hope I am up for it) and my house is way too small, my table (a little pre-50's table) seats 3 at best.
The guys are calling it a Man Cave. My old furniture is out there. I got Bill a 73 inch tv for Christmas, but had to give it to him early cause it was too big to hide. I plan on moving the video game stuff all out there for the boys.
About that tv. Money is super tight since we had no crops. I found a new auction site (a division of Amazon), it is like a penny auction, bids increase a penny at a time. But, you have to buy the bids. They are .60 each normally, but are generally on sale for .17 to .20. There are no new bidders allowed after an item reaches 5.00. You must be careful bidding. Make sure you are figuring the price of your bids in to the price of the item. Doing that, and being at the right place at the right time, I was able to get that television for under 5.00!!! So happy. I actually got the majority of my Christmas shopping done and for way way under my budget. Oh, the site is Dealdash.com. Been very happy with all my buys so far.
Ava Beth and Rylan helped me put up apples this weekend. We turned a bushel into applesauce and apple butter. Then, we made 3 dozen granny smiths into chocolate covered caramel apples. To die for. I get my kit from http://www.chocoley.com/. Love their chocolate. Can't do that store almond bark after using chocoley chocolate. We had a good time and hopefully made some memories for them.
All my grands were here this weekend. Ryder even had a friend for overnight. It's a house full, but I wouldn't change it for anything. Rase, my oldest, is pretty much living here now. He eats supper here, sleeps here 6/7 nights and his laundry done here so yes I say he lives here. Love it.
I discovered Pinterest, big mistake lol. I have over 1000 pins! So much to do, so little time. I have found a couple of crafty things I want to make the kids for their stockings. Hope I can do it.
That's it. I know there is more, but it isn't registering now so I will blog again soon.
