Lots of Catch Up

Do you ever live in the 'toooooo much' of your life!  Well, that's were we've been living for almost two years now! Where do I even begin...I'm thinking point form might be the best option! ... I'm so sorry, bear with me as I unload...and it's all good....just sooooo much!!!!
  • Moved Dean's parents four times in the past two years...7 months of that was taking dad to the hospital to see mom each day ~ they are now together in a wonderful personal care home.
  • Dean went for a complete shoulder replacement surgery due to unbearable pain caused by arthritis in his right shoulder ~ the left will be replace next year sometime!
  • Moved Marc and Chars to their new location in North Vancouver!! Beautiful location!!!
  • Little Lucas was born in February ~ grand baby # 5 ~ oh where has that time gone!!!

  • Moved our dear friends into their condo...and I love their new location and lifestyle!!
  • Marc & Chars announce the arrival of grand baby # 7 for us in January 2014!!!
  • Went to Convention in July and had the time of my life ~ what a wonderful experience ~ Dean & I road tripped it to Utah and had the BEST vacation EVER!!!
  • After Convention, Dean surprised me and I flew to North Van to spend a week with Marc & Chars...30 minutes into my time in Vancouver, my SU backpack (from convention) got stolen out of Marc's car...ID, Credit Cards, Laptop & iPad....why did I leave that in the car????
  • Andy & Andreas baby arrived on Oct 24th ~ Grandbaby # 6...oh...and a girl!!!! was born on Oct 24 ~ oh my, what a sweety ~ 5 boys and one little Katie!

  • In the midst of all this...add the emotional roller coaster that I've been on for about a year now ~ Dean's ability to keep up with our little acreage and pool in the summer and the shovelling in the winter has made us come to the conclusion that a complete lifestyle change is in order!
  • We are SO excited for condo life and have purchased a new unit yet to be built...projected date is December 2015!
  • So I continue with Stampin Up or not...can I do this when living in a condo...we are moving into a two bedroom (which will be a guest room, NOT a creative corner) 1400 sq ft from our 4000 sq ft bungalow in the country! YIKES!!!
  • So needless to say...I have started packing/purging/selling!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by this evening ~ I hope you have a wonderful evening!
I will be posting the stamps sets that I have for sale!!!

  1. Oh, I have been wondering what's been going on in your life....I knew you were busy with parents, but had NO idea all the rest was going on! What a big change ahead for you all....exciting for sure! I am really thrilled by that little granddaughter, though! Thinking of you, my friend....praying for all to come together and I will stand by you, whatever decision you make about SU!


Thank you for taking the time in leaving me a comment! I hope I have inspired you ~ I do take the time to read each comment and value your words of encouragement! Have a great day and happy creating!
