    Glad you decided to return to all the action! This place is better than Cheers "Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got. Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot. Wouldn't you like to get away? Sometimes you want to go .....Where everybody knows your name, and they're always glad you came.

Well it took a little longer than I anticipated getting settled again after Superstorm Sandy, but I think we are getting there. We are mostly settled into our new home and the dog and I FINALLY got a chance to get outside and do some exploring today !! Yeah !!! felt so great ! My son Jeff bought me a fitbit for Christmas I was SO excited but was crazy busy getting ready for the closing on the house, getting settled and getting through the holidays I just got started with it today !! It seems pretty awesome !! Can't wait to make those numbers go up and up ! Back in business again !! Off to feeling more energetic and amazing .............

Good evening Sparkers !!! I have missed being here and will be starting back in earnest in the AM !!! I am hoping we have a great ending to our homelessness....We are in the middle of buying a home (far from the ocean !!) hope to close in a couple of weeks, now maybe we can get some semblance of order back in our lives. Thank you for the positive thoughts and kind words over the past two months !! Talk to you soon !!

    So glad to hear you won't be homeless for much longer. We were in Virginia when Sandy was going to hit. My husband was in the hospital but they let him out Friday evening and we were on a plane Saturday morning, it hit Satturday evening. We were so lucky we got out when we did. My heart goes out to you and all your community and sending prayers and hugs to all. emoticon emoticon

Homeless update

How fortunate that our son's girlfriend's parent's took us in ! They are such wonderful and kind people ! We are lucky to be in a welcoming home that has power, heat and hot water. In addition they have welcomed our 80 lb 11 1/2 month old puppy as well. First stop the realtor's office, hope to have a place to call our own by Christmas !! Wish us luck :)
